“For years, McConaughey embodied complacency; he was an actor who bought too heavily into his own allure and therefore stalled out early on. The fact that he has been able to unravel that perception in a few roles shows how wrong we were. And it takes an actor who’s keenly aware of his own mythology to play games with his audience, to slash through his own persona with glee and abandon.”
It takes a Triple Scorpio and a brilliantly managed Uranus Opposition. “To slash through his own persona with glee and abandon” is a genius description of how Uranus transits can feel.
But then…Uranus into Aries opposing his natal Uranus in Libra and BLAM.
Everyone has the Uranus Opposition transit in their early 40s – McConaughey has just completed his – it can be the making of peeps; a super-lucrative and liberating individuation trip, Zeitgeist central OR of course, some peeps just go bats with it.
And he’s cosmic too…From Elle:
“If you want your hair to be thicker, cut it when the moon is about to be full—a heavy, full, waxing moon. Do not cut it when the moon’s waning. Right now, it’s 14 percent waxing on, it’s a crescent, so you don’t want to cut now. In about 10 days, the moon’s going to be 94 percent full—that’s a great time.” For real? “Damn right. Why do you think that [farmers] plant at certain times of the year? It’s not hippie-dippie stuff. Look, how do they know when you reap, when you sow, when you plant?”
