I’m not madly pro nor anti Gwyneth & don’t mind GOOP, her lifestyle tips site & newsletter. I love reading the detox articles, probably as she and I both have Mars in Virgo and that’s an astr0-signature for getting excited over the prospect of a good cleanse.
Mars-in-Virgo peeps enjoy reading about how they’re gonna cleanse the hell out of their over-yeasty intestines and the strange, scary food additives so unable to be metabolised that they have to be purged. And secretly, Mars-in-Virgo likes to think about attaining some other-worldly alien standard of perfection.
But I am interested in why, when she could be leading a perfectly cool acclaimed artist/sleb/mother etc life, she became so intent upon sharing her fashion, cooking, exercise, fasting etc tips with the whole world??? I do think it’s partly a good strong Mars in Virgo effort to raise the consciousness of people by sharing info from her own personal gurus. People bitch about her & say that her recommendations are elite but i feel she’s actually trying to glean the info from her team & pass it onto people who may never see a nutritionist in their whole life & certainly not a Park Avenue one, or whomever the Gwyneth patronises.
And, of all the things in the world worth slagging off, is The Gwyneth/GOOP really a major candidate??? Plus maybe it’s my Moon in Libra but i don’t care how fake/airbrushed the above image is, her skin and hair look amazing. It’s like she’s actually the Empress of Librans.
The GOOP thing coincided with Saturn into her totally crowded 7th house. That’s right. Her house of love is completely packed with planets…She likes/needs/wants to be in a relationship. It’s almost like one person is not enough – very Libran – but she’s not polyamorous & so she’s defining (Saturn) a relationship (7th House) with the world…
She has Sun conjunct Pluto natally so that’s a powerhouse of a woman – GOOP is just the start. The Gwyneth is a Plutonian. She’ll start something in the next few years, prob based on her macrobiotic/organic etc beliefs and it will be society-altering. Pluto is squaring this natal Sun-Pluto conjunction so there you go.
And she’ll attract the usual howling down from ye olde hat commentators defending their archaic beliefs. Pluto is not only squaring her Sun for the next few years, it’s on her Jupiter in the 10th house – Brilliant Career & public profile – so since early 2008 she would have felt an intense desire to transform her public persona to be a more authentic and useful expression of whom she is. And Jupiter – helping the masses!
Plus – she has Uranus conjunct Ceres so there’s an innovative style of nurturing right there…I think The Gwyneth is genius…
