Welcome to Famous Birth Chart Friday!
Right now, we are right in the middle of Capricorn season. Capricorns are earth signs that are ruled by Saturn. They are known to be charismatic, accountable, and self-disciplined. They are also self-important, patronizing, and vindictive. Others may assume that they are no-nonsense stuffed shirts, but in reality, they are good-natured and protective of their loved ones.
Today we are going to be talking about five famous Capricorns — Betty White, Dolly Parton, Lee Daniels, Denzel Washington, and Zooey Deschanel. But rather than focusing on just their sun signs, we are going to be discussing their Moon, Mercury, Venus, Mars, and ascendant signs as well.
Check here to find out if any of your inner planet placements match these five celebs!
Betty White, Born on January 17, 1922, in Oak Park, Illinois
Betty White’s moon sign is Virgo. The moon rules our emotions, and lunar Virgos are known to be detail-oriented. White would have had to be detail-oriented when producing The Betty White Show. Being a lunar Virgo may also be why she was so tender-hearted when it came to animals.
Her Mercury sign is Aquarius. People with this placement are more than happy to march to the beat of a different drummer. That may explain White’s exceptional sense of humor. Aquarius is also a compassionate and egalitarian sign, so her Mercury placement may explain her decision to keep Arthur Duncan on her show, despite protests.
Her Venus sign is Capricorn. People with this placement tend to be committed lovers. They prefer long-term relationships over short-lived flings. This may explain why she was with her third husband for almost 20 years before his passing.
Her Mars sign is Scorpio. Since her Mars sign is happy at home in Scorpio, this may explain why Betty White always had the funniest yet raunchiest sense of humor. I know we all miss her and her well-crafted dirty jokes.
Dolly Parton, Born on January 19, 1946, in Pittman Center, Tennessee
Like Betty White, Dolly’s moon is also in Virgo. Though her Capricorn stellium may have a lot to do with her business acumen, her Virgo moon probably aids her business sense as well. Like with Betty, her Virgo moon may explain why she is detail-oriented, kind-hearted, and philanthropic.
Her Mercury is in Capricorn. People with this placement tend to be very clear in their speech. They are also quite charming and tend to be smooth talkers. This may explain why Parton is such an engaging storyteller. It may also explain why everyone loves and can relate to her songs.
Her Venus is in Capricorn. Dolly and Betty must have a lot in common since they have so many similar chart placements. Like I said earlier, people with their Venus in Capricorn prefer long-term relationships, and Parton has been with her husband Carl Dean for 56 years.
Her Mars is in Cancer. Dolly Parton’s personal placements are all very earthy except for this one. This water sign helps to nourish her earthy nature. This placement may explain why she is so confident and driven by her creativity.
Her ascendant placement is in Virgo. People with this placement tend to be quite eco-conscious. This may explain why she urges people to be more mindful of how they treat the planet.
Lee Daniels, Born on December 24, 1959, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
His moon sign is Libra. Lunar Libras have a strong emotional need for peace. But they also have a strong sense of justice. His Libra moon may be why he took part in a tribute video for victims of the Orlando nightclub shooting produced by the Human Rights Campaign.
His Mercury sign is Sagittarius. People with this placement are intellectual speakers. They also tend to be more interested in the big picture rather than the little details. Since Daniels is a filmmaker, he probably tends to focus more on the bigger picture when making movies. Even though he does give special attention to the details. Also, the plots of his films are often intellectual.
His Venus sign is Scorpio. People with this placement tend to be loyal and passionate lovers. Because of this placement, Daniels may tend to be an emotionally and romantically intense partner.
His Mars sign is Sagittarius. When given the choice between fight or flight, Sagittarius will almost always choose flight. This may explain why Lee Daniels chose to apologize to Sean Penn when the latter threatened to sue him for defamation.
Denzel Washington, Born on December 28, 1954, in Mount Vernon, New York
His moon sign is Aquarius. Denzel Washington and I have the same moon sign! Lunar Aquarians love people but they don’t always know how to socialize. So as charismatic as Washington is, there may be times when he feels like an outsider. Lunar Aquarians are also known to be altruistic, which may explain his philanthropic nature.
Like Dolly Parton, his Mercury is also in Capricorn. This placement may explain why he is such an exceptional and charismatic actor. His charm and smooth-talking ways allow him to deliver his lines in memorable ways.
Like Lee Daniels, his Venus is in Scorpio. As I said earlier, people with this placement are known to be loyal lovers. That may be why he has been married to his wife for almost 40 years.
His Mars sign is Pisces. He and I have the same Mars sign too! We should hang out! People with this placement are usually mild-mannered and driven by their art. But they are also indecisive. This may explain why Denzel Washington has been struggling with the decision to become a preacher for several years.
His ascendant is in Libra. People with this placement are dedicated peacekeepers. This may also explain his aforementioned desire to be a preacher.
Zooey Deschanel, Born on January 17, 1980, in Los Angeles, California
Zoe’s moon sign is Capricorn. She is the poster child for quirky girls, but just because her head may be in the clouds, her Capricorn moon probably keeps her feet firmly planted on the ground. She is probably way more grounded than people give her credit for.
Her Mercury is in Capricorn. So many people on this list have their Mercury signs in Capricorn. Like with Denzel Washington, this placement may explain why she is such a charming and engaging actress and singer.
Her Venus is in Pisces. My Venus is in Pisces too so I bet we would get along. People with this placement tend to be playful and flirty rather than overtly sexual. Deschanel may be a very empathetic yet misunderstood romantic partner because of this placement. This placement may also explain her retro sense of style.
Her Mars is in Virgo. People with this placement tend to be over-achievers. This may be why Deschanel aspired to pursue both acting and music. They also do well under pressure, which could explain her calm demeanor.
Her ascendant placement is in, you guessed it Capricorn. This placement may explain why Zooey Deschanel always seems so calm, cool, and collected.
