Jupiter over her Sun-Mercury in Taurus last year was good to Lena Dunham – i’m sure she’s Leo Rising (she’s cat-like, creative and brazen enough) and that would make it Sun/Mercury in the 10th House being oomphed by Jupiter – a total fit.
I get her as a cultural phenomenon & all but can’t quite get hooked on Girls. This might be cos i’m not Gen Y enough – i am Gen X/Pluto in Virgo – she is the self-proclaimed voice of her generation, Pluto in Scorpio. Or it could be ‘cos i’ve tried to watch it with Not The Typical Virgo who shrieked in horror the whole way through.
She’s mouthy too – Mercury trine Neptune and opposite Pluto. Sun in Taurus trine Mars in Capricorn. We’ve talked about this before. Mars in Capricorn is the strongest Mars you can have. Their work ethic, stamina, desire to prevail no-matter-what and pure raw resevoirs of ambition are unbelievable. These peeps don’t stop, they don’t shut up and they probably sleep standing up lol.
I totally see the Sun-Mars ‘fuq you’ at work in this New York Post thing on her AND i’m seeing her Venus-Lilith-Chiron in Gemini conjunction. Lilith often shows up as the wise-cracking bitch, the scorned or ‘other’ woman turned rogue and rich because of it. Girl got wounded and she’s also got an awesome armoury (wits, guts, nowness) with which to avenge.
Over the past year, the 26-year-old director/writer/actor, daughter of two New York artists, has been a lightning rod for praise and controversy. Her graphic, warts-and-all HBO show about 20-somethings in New York premiered last spring after much advance buzz, then received a flurry of criticism for being too whiny, too self-centered, too nepotistic, too white and — in the most cutting attacks — too naked.
Dunham, possessed of a seemingly Teflon self-image, powered on, selling a book of essays and advice for a reported $3.7 million in her downtime from the show and tweaking the media’s obsession with her normal-girl looks by hitting a press line in an outfit that seemed pantsless (it had barely visible short shorts).
“Get used to it,” she told Page Six, “because I’m going to live to be 100, and I am going to show my thighs every day till I die.” She also appeared naked in an opening skit at the Emmys, stuffing her face with cake while crouching in a bathroom stall.
Thoughts? Like/Love/Loathe Girls? Pluto In Scorpio People – is L.D the voice of your generation? Mars in Capricorn peeps – how does it feel to be you, with that Exalted Mars and all?
