I was talking with a client about the astrology of attractive celebrities, just chat, a tangent, but it got me to thinking. Analyzing the charts of celebrities, often because of characters we find attractive, is a good way to sort through and categorize certain traits that activate us. While a public person we have no contact with stimulates something in us, their charts interact with ours, we have no impact on them. This makes for a good way to investigate our own issues with attraction.
I have a huge celebrity crush on John Goodman’s character in “Roseanne.” Because of this I have a crush on John Goodman. I look at his natal chart and can see the energies I respond to. His Pluto on my ascendant with his Mars on my Mars really gets my motor running. His Neptune opposing my Venus allows me to project my fantasies of an ideal man onto him. He’s a double Gemini with Sun and Moon in Gemini. In real life, when my chart hits their chart as well, my interactions with Gemini never turn romantic. With John Goodman it’s a one way mirror so his possible reactions to me never come into play. His Gemini qualities, however, make him a nimble actor portraying qualities he may not possess as an individual, qualities that make him my ultimate man candy by virtue of his Neptune (which is a generational thing therefore not terribly personal).
The way I use this information is to categorize what it is about the character that I observe that resonates for me and I look for those things in real life individuals. It helps me to analyze what I need in relationship, really need, not just what I find attractive outwardly. Crushes tend to express our archetypal, primal needs in some way and are helpful in analyzing our nature.
