Mickey Rourke’s Sun conjunct Jupiter in Virgo is a protective and lucky influence. He will always bounce back, no matter what weirdness his Uranian Venus pulls or how much his Moon in Aquarius tries to detach from success. You also see it in his excesses. He goes over the top with everything he gets near: method acting, relationships, cosmetic surgery, the media.
“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.”
The Astrology of Mickey Rourke goes way beyond Virgo.
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 birth time so no ascendant (he looks like Gemini Rising) or Midheaven which is a pity. But how funny is this? He has the Sun conjunct 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. Rourke has 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. That’s really Sun conjunct Jupiter. They lead big lives and are always hustling.
