Jennifer Coolidge, the woman whom I first knew as "Stifler's hot mama" in American Pie, and then as one of my favorite characters the cute hairdresser Paulette “bend & snap” in Legally Blond, and in many other tiny roles, won the long-awaited and much-deserved Best Supporting Actress award last night. It was her second award in 3 months, having won an Emmy in September. Let's take a look at her late-blooming career through the perspective of astrology...
This lady, very talented at role-stealing and who is always able to stay in the mind even in supporting roles, killed it at the awards ceremony last night, from her moving speech to her shiny dress.
Not only that, she also snatched Colin Farrel.
But if she was so successful, why now?
Let's take a look at her chart!
She is a Gemini and her ascendant is Virgo, so it can be said that being famous is deep in her skin. Her Jupiter in the 5th house compatible with Virgo Sun would of course bring her this fame from acting at some point. Her Gemini side shines with her success in comedy. Gemini is of course fast, smart and witty. But of course, it is also said that the person she shows out and the person she really is contradicting.
First of all, let's identify the source of that soft, misty, iconic voice. Actually, this is a feature I would never expect from a Virgo Ascendant, Gemini Sun woman. But of course, this one holds a lucky triangle between Mercury Neptune Chiron in water signs has a great effect on this. The mist and dissolution in the voice come from the Neptune Mercury aspect and she sounds as if she is in a state of need comes from Chiron!
With Saturn in his 5th house, she is probably a very disciplined actor.
Her Moon in Capricorn makes her ambitious, distant, and, contrary to what her voice says, emotionally tough a bit.
Now let's talk about why I am looking at this chart.
Astrology students or enthusiasts are usually afraid of Saturn transits and even more afraid of Pluto transits. Let's see what happened with this lady.
In her natal chart, she has a Capricorn Saturn at 29 degrees, which we call "anaretic", which we even call scary. Although Saturn is strong in Capricorn but at an anaretic degree... It is in the 5th house and Pluto is transiting it right now. The 5th house is about acting and she gets the Golden Globe for the first time in her life. And while all this is happening, again a feared aspect, transit Saturn is transiting/opposing the Uranus-Mars conjunction in Leo in the 11th house. But please, while trying to see the potential of a chart, let's be careful not to give a direct call that this will happen immediately by looking at a series of transits. Why is it happening now? Here we also need to look at the progressed chart. The MC of the progress chart is just above this conjunction, meaning that there is likely to be an unexpected and serious progress in the career that he has been dreaming of and working on for years.
Many people won awards yesterday but she is the news! Why? Venus in Aries in the 8th house can also make her an attention junkie. And she has a talent for strategy and magnetism to get it, which she gets from the Mercury-Pluto sextile. On this Venus, the Progressed Moon that activates her is also squared by transiting Pluto in Capricorn. So there is another aspect we are afraid of, gets her the attention she craves.
For example, another challenging aspect is the transit of Neptune over his Descendant. And it squares his MC while opposing his Ascendant conjunct his progressed Mars. Many astrologers can interpret this as career unraveling, confusion about where she is in the public eye, and even illness with the angle of Progress Mars to the Ascendant. But Neptune indicates the screen, and the cinema as well. And our sweet sister got her share of awards just now as a part of the screen.
When the camera turned to a weeping White during her thank you speech, Coolidge could not hold back her tears: " I thought I was going to be Queen of Monaco even though someone else did it.
“But I had these giant ideas. And then you get older and, oh, shit’s going to happen. And, Mike White, you have given me hope. You’ve given me a new beginning. Even if this is the end, because you did kill me off, but even if this is the end, you changed my life in a million different ways. My neighbours are speaking to me and things like that. I was never invited to one party on my hill, and now everyone’s inviting me! It’s to you, Mike White.”
This pretty woman with her Gemini Sun and Virgo Ascendant really knows how to speak, and her Cancer Mercury ruling her Sun and Ascendant is exactly why we can say that she touches people's hearts when she speaks. And of course, the reason for the emphasis on neighbors is probably natal Neptune which also affects the 3rd House.
One of the most interesting things for me is that at the time she received the Emmy, the Sun is transiting right over her ascendant. Transit Mars is over her Sun (a very tense time, we say "beware" etc.) and transit Saturn is on her MC, and transit Saturn is over her natal Mars Uranus conjunction, this is a chart to say "beware, these are hard times ", but I was looking for exactly this example.
Why am I writing this? Because not every hard transit has to be bad and challenging. Please, please, please don't be afraid of harsh transits, and don't be afraid to get out and show yourself. The important thing is how we use our chart and therefore interpreting the chart, and making the readings correctly in order to be prepared for the situations is very important.
