Demi Guynes Kutcher professionally known as Demi Moore was born at 2.16pm on November 11th 1962, making her a Scorpio. Scorpios have a reputation for knowing their own minds and having a strongly sensual persona. Demi dropped out of school at the age of 16 to become a model in Europe and posed nude for Oui magazine in 1980 and went on to play the sexy heroine in Indecent Proposal. She became the highest-paid actress in film history in 1996 when she took the lead in Striptease. Although her career has taken a bit of a downturn recently, she has an impressive pedigree.
The actress had a difficult start in life with her father leaving her mother before she came into the world. Her step-father’s job meant the family had to move many times when Demi was young, and she only found out about her real father when she was thirteen. As a child she was cross-eyed, but with her Sun close to Venus, she was destined to be a beauty and the defect was corrected by surgery.
Demi’s chart shows a challenging configuration involving the Sun, Moon and Mars. These are in what is called a T-square, with the Sun opposite the Moon and both at right angles to Mars. The Sun/Moon opposition often denotes conflict between the parents. Also, the fact that Sun and Moon were opposite each other means that the Moon was full when Demi was born, and even non-astrologers know this can be an unstable time. Full Moon people have a strong intuition, but they may feel pulled in two directions, as their instincts seem to be showing them something that logic and reason cannot accept. Add to this the fiery tug of the Red Planet and you have a very volatile combination.
This has given Demi considerable dynamism but she may sometimes shoot herself in the foot through being rather headstrong. Certainly she has landed herself in plenty of controversy, especially in 1991 when, at seven months pregnant, she appeared naked on the cover of Vanity Fair. This was intended to portray an ‘anti-Hollywood, anti-glitz’ attitude, causing heated debate in the media.
GHOSTLY GOINGS ON
It is a strange fact that the charts of actors and actresses often echo the important roles they play. Demi’s greatest success was in Ghost, the highest-grossing film of 1990 in which she played the widowed Molly, haunted by the protective spectre of her murdered husband. Moore has a collection of planets in the mysterious sign of Scorpio, which falls also in the eighth house of her chart. This house relates to matters of life and death. One of the planets there is Neptune, lord of the Unseen and the realm of dreams and nightmares. Neptune is conjunct expressive Mercury, indicating that the eerie vibe will out in some way. In real life this has been expressed in her interest in Kabbalah and ritual. See more on Horoscopes
PRESENT AND FUTURE
Demi has had a tough time of it of late. Her marriage to the actor Ashton Kutcher, who is 16 years younger than her, has recently ended. She has been spotted looking thin, frail and disorientated emerging from a nightclub, while Kutcher has been making his affection for his latest squeeze very public. This is a hurtful and challenging time for Demi, as Mars transits over her collection of planets in Scorpio. However, the good news is that this will be fairly brief. Next year that Scorpionic ability to rise from the ashes should help her as Pluto, planet of rebirth, trines her natal Pluto. Demi should then have a chance to re-invent herself and find happiness once more.«
