Jack Nicholson, multi-award winning actor and star of some of Hollywood’s most iconic movies – One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, Chinatown, The Shining, A Few Good Men, Terms of Endearment – was 79 yesterday. It’s all the more astonishing since he’s led a riotous life with only one marriage but numerous relationships and has never stinted on excess.
Born 22 April 1937 11am Neptune, New Jersey, he has a maverick, determined and indulgent Sun Uranus in Taurus in the 10th; with Venus in Aries conjunct his Midheaven and Mercury in Taurus also in the 10th – so ambitious and designed for a public career. He’s also got a powerfully confident, exact Pluto opposition Jupiter in Capricorn – ultra-determined to get his own way and good at attracting money. His Mars in feisty Sagittarius is in the performing 5th so not only an entertainer but in his day a vigorous party-goer.
He was the son of a showgirl and never really knew who his father was; and he was brought up by his grandparents whom he was told were his parents. He only discovered in his late 30s that his ‘sister’ was his mother.
His Virgo Moon opposes Saturn in Pisces and sits on the focal point of a mini-Grand Trine of Mars trine Pluto – so not an easy emotional life.
2017 looks to be a year of great highs and some lows as tr Uranus squares his Pluto opposition Jupiter and Solar Arc Uranus is conjunct Pluto and opposition Jupiter – so significant changes and some relief.
