“I lost the house, the wife, the credibility, the entourage. I lost my soul. I was alone … I’m sort of OK with it now, but the first time I’m in there, pushing a f***ing cart, getting my supper. I used to go to the 24-hour place in gay town, so no one would recognize me. The only thing I could afford was a shrink, so that’s where my money went. Three times a week for the first two years. The year after that, twice a week and now I’m down to once a week. I’ve only missed two appointments in six years.”
Mickey Rourke has always been one of those Virgoans (a la Charlie Sheen) who make peeps go “w.t.f. – he is a Virgo???” You know, aren’t they meant to be vaguely together?
Considered an immensely gifted young actor at his debut, he managed a quite spectacular slide into hideocrity: madness, poverty, a domestic abuse charge & blah de blah. Kim Basinger called him ‘the human ashtray.’ And now he’s back – apparently an Oscar contender for his iconic performance in The Wrestler…His astro??
I can’t find a birthtime so no ascendant (he looks like Gemini Rising) or Midheaven which is a pity. But how funny is this? He’s Sun/Jupiter in Virgo and with Moon in Aquarius – so bats but brilliant. He’s got Venus conjunct Uranus in Leo so would be hopelessly attracted to women who were hot, charismatic & theatrical live-out-louders but they’d make his elegant & detached Moon/Sun feel claustro and repulsed.
Interesting. And he’s always got another career thing going on other than acting. You know, he tried boxing. He once owned a little magazine/ice cream stall thing. So to me he just reeks of Gemini…And so my theory is Gemini Rising & Pluto opposing in Sagg kinda correlates with his time out in the cold & doing therapy. Tres Pluto, non???
And now he is playing this character in The Wrestler who sounds v.individuated & Plutonic. Right now, Rourke’s got Saturn hovering between his Sun & his Jupiter; some tangible, official Saturn-style success & official recognition would be apt for such a transit. But note that Uranus (ruler of his Moon) is opposing his Sun & applying hard over March/April. Part of him is yearning for the validation & another bit must be already kicking up.
