The actor and photographer Viggo Mortensen is a good example of a Libra Scorpio stellium. Most of his astrological energy is between 15 Libra and Scorpio. It means that he is inspired by relationships and collaborations but also that if he does not connect with a person – or project/piece of work – at a soul level, he’s not there. And, depending on his rising sign, he would barely be able to conceal his lack of engagement. Fortunately, he’s super-talented and a witch.
By “witch”, I mean that in the olden days, being born with that much astrological energy in that sector of the galaxy meant you had powers. I think it still holds but it’s not so fashionable to talk about the Via Combusta. Latin for “fiery way”, it refers to the part of the Zodiac belt that is between 15 degrees of Libra and Scorpio. The late Libra/early Scorpio part of it – where Mortensen’s stellium is – is the most potent.
Viggo Mortensen Has Practically All His Astro In The Via Combusta
In ancient times, a Queen would have hired him to be her Chief Mage by dint of his chart alone. Okay and maybe his looks.
He’s got Venus, North Node, and the Sun in late Libra. That then runs into Neptune, Mercury & Jupiter in early Scorpio. Given that a Stellium is any more than three planets, the Sun or Moon close together, it’s one hell of a Libra Scorpio stellium. If you were to look at it in the sky, at the time it was happening, they would look like a vertical line of stars, with some so close they resembled one big star. The “star of wonder” sought by the three “wise men” who found Jesus was probably a triple conjunction.
Mortensen also has the Moon in Aquarius and Mars in Gemini. So that’s ultra Air – he is reportedly a maniac bibliophile. Pluto in Virgo is his only Earth. He is a creature of Air and Water; intellect and emotion.
