Mel Gibson Gets Divorcedmelgibson

In his long career Mel Gibson has presented many faces to the public. There’s the pretty one that launched such movie franchises as “Mad Max” and “Lethal Weapon” and got him elected as the “Sexiest Man Alive.” There’s the face of the serious filmmaker responsible for such mega-hits as “Braveheart” and “The Passion of Christ.” And then there’s the face of the hate-filled alcoholic spewing anti-Semitic, racist and sexist remarks.


It shouldn’t be surprising that a man this complex would possess an extremely complex horoscope. In Gibson’s chart we see seven planets at or very near the first degree of six different signs. This means we have a web of close aspects, some positive, some negative and all intense. (Click here to see Gibson's horoscope.)


The dominant system in this web of aspects is the T-square featuring Mercury opposed to Uranus and square Neptune. This is a creative arrangement, indicating an extremely original and perceptive mind, but it is also an aspect that brings erratic thinking, thinking that frequently veers across the boundaries between logical and illogical, rational and irrational and clever and hurtful. We might term this as the “foot-in-mouth” T-square, an attribute that Gibson as proved repeatedly.


The real problem with having so many planets at the same degree of different signs is that when one of them makes an aspect to a transiting or progressed body, they all are affected. Thus, when Gibson’s progressed Moon neared one degree Leo, (opposite his natal Mercury, conjunct in natal Uranus and square his natal Neptune,) he had his famous D.U.I. arrest, the one that led to his anti-Semite rant. And when transiting Uranus closed in one degree Aries and his progressed Mars reached one degree of Capricorn, he split with his girlfriend (Oksana Grigorieva) and his wife won a $425 million settlement in their divorce.


The next month will not be good for Gibson. His progressed Mars will remain at one degree Capricorn while transiting Jupiter, Uranus, Saturn and Neptune all linger near this degree in their respective signs. Another self-destructive outburst is not unlikely. Of course, considering the damage that has already been done to both his reputation and his finances, it might not make much of a difference.
