Have you ever wondered about the astrology of a fictional character? Sure they’re “made up,” but it’s not unusual for a character to be written complete with a fictional birthday. I don’t usually bother to figure that out, the author/creator’s chosen date. My musing tends to be more inductive, taking what I know of the character and ascribing planetary influences based on what I perceive. But I’ve been watching a lot of Buffy lately, too much, actually, and thought, why not? There’s got to be an actual date of birth for Buffy, considering how rabid the fan-base. And there is: the 19th of January, 1981, according to Joss Whedon, the series creator.
This makes Buffy a full moon baby. The full moon occurs minutes before midnight, at zero degrees Aquarius. This is unusual. A full moon at zero degrees is pretty special anyway, ending the moon cycle, mystical in itself, at the beginning of a sign. Buffy with a zero degree Sun-Moon opposition in Aquarius-Leo seems pretty dramatic, the Universal Protector, former cheerleader with foofy hair! An anaretic Capricorn Sun is also possible, last degree of Capricorn, with a Cancer Moon. She’s also a hardworker with a lot of responsibility who loves her family.
In any case I like the Mars-Mercury conjunction in Aquarius for the fictional Protector of the Universe. She’s fast and electric! It even trines a Jupiter Saturn conjunction, bigger than life with added responsibility. Jupiter-Saturn squares her Venus in Capricorn, doing the same for her love life, in a challenging way. And power? Buffy’s Sun and Moon form a tee square with Pluto. Boom.
I think Joss Whedon either has some astrological knowledge, has input from someone who does, or this is amazingly serendipitous. Either way, I’m happy. Buffy shiny! Buffy good!
What’s your favorite fictional character? What do you imagine their astrology to be?
