Antonio Banderas is So Haute Leo. The Triple Leo (Mercury, Sun, Uranus) Leo Actor has quietly become a student again, studying fashion design at Central Saint Martins in London. He is majoring in menswear and told student magazine Granary 1: ““There is one garment that I love that was lost in menswear a long time ago, and I would like to experiment with it: the cape”
Banderas wore a cape magnificently in The Mask Of Zorro.
He has just had Jupiter over his Sun-Uranus in Leo which is ALSO being activated by Uranus in Aries so he’s in growth mode but what a cool way to do it. AND Neptune over his Pisces Ascendant for the last few years can be like a dissolution of the old aspects of your persona that no longer fit with where you’re at.
He’s split from a long-time partner, probably dissolved the aspect of his persona that said ‘fading star’ and powerfully rebirthed himself as a student of fashion (and capes), re-committing to the core values of that Sun-Uranus in Leo conjunction in the 6th House; Creativity and Learning. This will re-invigorate his brand, his spunk, his everything.
And whom, you may ask, is this gentleman? This is Bryan Randall, the new boyfriend of Oscar-winning actor Sandra Bullock. So i spent some time I did not actually have, emailing back and forth with my good friend, the artist/astrologer Rachel Stuart Haas, saying IS THIS GUY DOUCHECORE OR NOT?
And where the hell is his birthday? He is apparently “49” but he could be an alien for all the internet knows about his birth details. So some of you may recall Ms Bullock’s previous marriage, to one (Aries) Jesse James, douchecore with outlaw pretensions and subsequent divorce after his affair with an adult movie actress came to the attention of the media.
No relationship is guaranteed and we are all human but A-List with D-List can = a whole shitload of unpleasant media. And Sandra Bullock has career longevity. She is and has been A for a very long time. And i think the reason Ms Stuart Haas and i were discussing this SO assiduously is that both JJ and the New One remind us of every time we have ever gone with the douchecore option. They are always good looking. That is a given. Because if they did not grow up with some major appeal, they would never have been able to develop douchecore character traits.
BUT…okay, so here is Bryan with the 23 year old girlfriend he had about three months ago, right before he hooked up with Sandra Bullock. SO no offence to Paris St John, she’s a songwriter and her mother is a Mexican/Cancerian Martial Artist/Model and her father is a Young And the Restless soap star.
But that ended swiftly and voila Bryan is with Sandra Bullock. It would be epic to think that the approx $51 USD million she earns a year has nothing whatsoever to do with this. She is stunning, erudite and a person of obvious depth. BUT Jesse and now this? However, her chart reveals a few interesting factors. YES Sandra is Leo but with Mars and Venus in Gemini Rising, trined by Moon in Aquarius and LILITH smack-bang on the Descendant.
She does not actually give a damn about convention. YES she may occasionally trot out to do the womens mags media circuit and say she wants a man (just like the readers husbands) who is caring and has nice eyes but actually, NO. If the womens mag media wants to interpret a single, insanely financially independent, sane, cool, creatively fulfilled and mega-powerful A-Lister female as being somehow a sad sack commodity, that’s increasingly their problem, not the Lady Leos.
Less powerfully, we have the sad case of Rock Icon (the Pretenders) Chrissie Hynde, triple Virgo, sharing her thoughts on rape, her own experiences with sexual assault and theory that victim’s have a part to play in the crime. The old “their fault for high heels and provocative clothing” crap that was astonishing to hear out of the mouth of someone so COOL.
Chrissie Hynde has been perma-cool for years. The Pretenders were big in their day. She sang/wrote songs about Goddess Energy – Hymn To Her – and has been an ardent advocate for animal rights since forever. So this amazed me. But it also reminded me of one of her early songs: Tattooed Love Boys – listening anew, okay fine. It’s about a gang rape and she feels now that she somehow was asking for it.
And she has just followed up with a new blast comparing contemporary female singers to sex workers. Even allowing for some media-took-random-quote-out-of-context absolution, she is on a roll with this crap.
So WHAT is going on? She is Sun, Mercury and Venus in Virgo and Jupiter IS on her Mercury right now. That makes sense. Jupiter crossing your Mercury is like Big-Mouth The Great. If you have a media platform, you will use it. But there is more. She is also having Saturn literally on her Scorpio Moon.
That’s intense. That IS old violations and emotions re ancient angst emerging, ready or not. if i was her astrologer, i would have said do NO media this season, do only therapy – which Saturn on the Moon is radical for. And if you have to do media, talk about sponsoring a cattery and Bast or something.
Finally, for this FIRST and maybe LAST Mediatrix Celebrity Astrology, Mr Jarryd Hayne. If you have not heard of him, he is an Australian footballer who has made it into American football. Here is shown being welcomed into the 49ers. What i love about this story – apart from the vaguely plausible excuse to become obsessed with NFL – is that Jarryd is SO his astrology.
When he first announced he was going to quit the Australian league and go for the American one last year, he was howled down. There was a phase when he was universally ridiculed and Hayne – An Aquarius with his Sun Conjunct Mercury Retro – became this kind of icon of hubris. At one point, sports writers whose biggest sporting challenge was walking back from the pub without wrapping themselves around a lamp-post, were critiquing Hayne’s “lack of fitness.” It was mental.
But then he did it and broke some American sporting record in the pre-season. So he is Aquarius with his Sun conjunct Retro Mercury (don’t expect explanations – just OMG type deeds when they feel like it) AND Mars in Sagg – trine Jupiter in Aries trine Lilith in Leo. All of which was AMPED by the Jupiter-Uranus trine last year.
Don’t dream it – do it. Antonio needs to design him a cape.
