A look at some elements that appeared at the Oscars

Fire excites.  Water makes you feel.  Here are two examples of those energies in action taken from the Oscars this past Sunday.

Patricia Arquette stoked the flames in the audiences hearts when she used her acceptance speech to command attention to the need for equal wages and equal rights for women. Meryl Streep was so excited that she stood up and pointed “Yes!”.  Patricia is a double fire sign, with her Sun in Aries and her Moon in Leo.  Not to mention that at the time of her speech transiting Venus and Mars were in Aries (fiery passion) and stimulating her natal Aries Mercury in the 9th house (her fiery mind naturally tuned into 9th house matters, like politics).

The excitement brought Meryl to her feet shouting “Yes!”

Common and John Legend’s performance of “Glory” stirred up a lot of emotion in the audience.  Tears continued to flow as they took turns with the acceptance speech after winning the award moments later.  Common is a double Water, with both his Sun and Moon in compassionate all-embracing Pisces.  The last line of the speech, in reference to the “spirit of the bridge” at Selma couldn’t sum up the Pisces energy any better: “This bridge was built on hope, welded with compassion and elevated by love for all human beings”.

Common and Legend made a point to have their acceptance speech tie directly into the important themes equal rights for all human beings prolonging the high emotions in the audience.

David Oyelowo has Venus in Pisces as did Martin Luther King. Relating to others (Venus) in an all-accepting compassionate way (Pisces). MLK also had a Pisces Moon which puts those themes even more centered into his soul.

All in all a very enjoyable Oscars!

Astro Oscar preamble! Best Actor

The Oscars are almost here!  Let’s have a quick look at some astro observations having to do with the best actor nominees..

Eddie Redmayne and Bradley Cooper both have the same big transit happening for them this year.  Pluto is conjunct their natal Suns, as they are born one day apart from each other.  Their natal Suns being in achievement-oriented Capricorn are being blown up BIG (Pluto) and perhaps transformed.  Redmayne clearly already transformed himself as an actor in the public eye showing how he can seemingly shape-shift directly into Stephen Hawking with all that realism.  I have yet to see “American Sniper” but it’s safe to say that both of these chaps could stand to welcome more BIGNESS into their years by picking up an Oscar.

Redmayne definitely transformed (Pluto) himself in this role
AMERICAN SNIPER
Cooper has been very open about the deep transformative effect (Pluto transit) taking on this role has had on him by learning about the struggles that military families take on.

I would love to see Benedict Cumberbatch win if not for his speech alone.  On Oscar night Mars and Venus will be together in Aries (passionate fire-cracking energy) and making a perfect trine (supportive influence) on his natal Leo Mercury (dramatic confident style of speech).

Speech! Speech! Speech!

If Carell wins, the transiting Sun will be right on his natal Moon in Pisces, highlighting his other-worldly way.  We can perhaps expect to see something strange and mysterious in his speech, or maybe a speech of real compassion (all Pisces things).

Visible mystery or compassion likely with his speech

I couldn’t find reliable birth data for Keaton, but good luck to him.

“Birdman” was awesome IMO..
