Welcome to Famous Birth Chart Friday!
Yesterday, I deviated from talking about astrology to discuss Friday the 13th. But today we are going to be talking about three celebrities who were born on the infamous date, Steve Buschemi, Mary-Kate Olsen, and Ashley Olsen.
Am I cheating by writing about the birth charts of twins? Yes. Do I care? No! The Olsens may have identical birth charts, but their placements may present themselves in different ways.
We are going to be discussing their sun, moon, Mercury, Venus, and Mars signs. In the case of the Olsens, we will be talking about their ascendant signs.
Check here to find out if any of your inner planet placements match these three celebs!
Steve Buscemi, born on December 13th, 1957, in Brooklyn, New York
Steve Buscemi’s sun is in Sagittarius. The sun rules our energy and vitality. Sagittarians are known to be incredibly entertaining. And anyone who has seen him in a film knows just how entertaining he can be. Sagittarius is also a mutable sign which may explain why it is so easy for him to adapt to different acting roles. Since he is a fire sign, it makes sense that he was a firefighter and was once arrested for protesting the closing of a number of firehouses.
His moon placement is in Virgo. The moon rules our emotions, and lunar Virgos are often compelled to help those in need. As stated above, Buschemi was a firefighter from 1980-1985. The day after the 9/11 attacks, he volunteered at his old firehouse and worked 12-hour shifts for a week.
His Mercury placement is in Capricorn. Mercury rules our communication skills, and people with this placement tend to voice their concerns in a clear, concise way. This may explain why he was so quick to display his outrage at the closing of the New York firehouses. He is quoted as saying “Closing is no way to protect New York.”
His Venus placement is in Aquarius. Buschemi was married to Jo Andres for over 30 years. Because of this Venus placement, he may have wooed her by playing hard to get. This placement can also explain his love for the eclectic band The Beastie Boys.
His Mars placement is at home in Scorpio. People with this placement have strong survival instincts and they love a challenge. This may explain why he tried to break up a bar fight between Vince Vaughn, Scott Rosenberg, and two local bar patrons.
We do not know Buschemi’s birth time, so we cannot calculate his ascendant.
Mary-Kate Olsen, born on June 13th, 1986, in Sherman Oaks, California
Mary-Kate’s sun is in Gemini. Geminis are known to be verbally expressive, which may be why she displayed such incredible acting talent at such a young age. She and her sister were double-cast as Michelle Tanner on Full House.
Her moon placement is in Virgo. Lunar Virgos are incredibly detail-oriented. And Mary-Kate and her sister would have to be committed to perfecting the details of their fashion lines.
Her Mercury placement is in Cancer. People with this placement tend to have excellent memories. Which may explain why she was so good at memorizing her lines as an actor. Because of this placement, she may be a bit quiet and contemplative but enjoys meaningful conversations.
Her Venus placement is in Cancer. Venus rules our romantic and aesthetic inclinations, and people with this placement tend to be sentimental yet moody if they feel emotionally neglected. She may have filed for divorce from her husband because she felt like her emotional needs weren’t being met.
Her Mars placement is in Capricorn. Mars rules our passion and drive. People with this placement are hardworking and ambitious which may explain why she and her sister were ranked as the eleventh wealthiest women in the world.
Her ascendant is in Leo. Our rising signs determine people’s first impressions of us. People with this placement love to have all eyes on them. This may explain some of Mary-Kate’s personal fashion choices in the past.
Ashley Fuller Olsen, born on June 13th, 1986, in Sherman Oaks, California
Ashley’s sun, again, is in Gemini. It’s just too perfect that the Olsen twins are represented by the zodiac twins! Like her sister, she also displayed a talent for acting and verbal expression at an early age. This placement may also explain her writing talents since she published a book with her sister.
Her moon placement is in Virgo. I guess if you are born on Friday the 13th, you have to have a Virgo moon. I joke, of course. As a Lunar Virgo fashion designer, Ashley would have to be just as detail-oriented as her sister. Because of her moon placement, she is dedicated to finding solutions. This may explain why she was quick to sue the National Enquirer for alleging a false story about her.
Her Mercury placement is in Cancer. Like her sister, this placement may explain her good memory when it came to memorizing lines. This placement may explain why she is also soft-spoken and pensive.
Her Venus placement is also in Cancer. She may be just as sentimental as her sister. Cancer is a creative sign, so this placement could explain both of the twins’ eye for fashion. Because of this placement, she may be financially frugal unless they are taking care of friends and family. This may explain why she married a philanthropist.
Her Mars placement is in Capricorn. As stated above, Ashley and her sister are listed as two of the richest women in the world. This placement may also explain why they have an incredible mind for business and philanthropy.
Her ascendant is in Leo. People with this placement are known to be altruistic, and both of the twins are dedicated to philanthropy. Ashley also endeavored to create a “perfect t-shirt” that would look good on everybody.
