An Astrological Glance at Ryan Goslingryangosling


It seems that everywhere you look you see a picture of or a reference to or a movie starring Ryan Gosling. In the past two years alone he has had lead roles in five high profile films: Blue Valentine, All Good Things, The Ides of March, Crazy, Stupid Love and Drive. Even though Gosling has been acting since he was a child, his recent success has been meteoric.


I don’t generally attempt astrological profiles unless I have a complete horoscope but when I saw Gosling in Drive wearing a scorpion emblazoned jacket (and playing a decidedly Scorpio-like character) I decided to make an exception.


Ryan Gosling was born Nov. 12, 1980 in London, Ontario (according to Wikipedia and the Internet Movie Data Base.) He has the Sun in Scorpio and the Moon in Capricorn. With just this information I can see that he is an ambitious, extremely focused and somewhat calculating individual who is serious about everything he does. With the Sun in Scorpio, he has emotional depth and gritty determination. Add to this the famous Capricorn work ethic and you have the basic ingredients for success in any field.


Gosling’s Mars/Venus profile is, on the other hand, is not nearly so serious. He has Mars in Sagittarius with Venus in Libra making him the The Starry-Eyed Love Child. Gosling has been paired with several famous women – Sandra Bullock, Rachel McAdams and Eva Mendes, to name a few – but the relationships have not lasted. With this Mars and Venus combination he is much more adept at courtship than commitment and it may be a while before he decides it’s time to settle down.


Even without a birth time, we can see transiting Saturn at work in the progress of Gosling’s career. His first big hit movie was The Notebook. It was released in 2004, the year that transiting Saturn squared his natal Saturn. Then, in 2010, when Gosling made his successful return to making movies after a three year hiatus, Saturn was conjuncting its natal place.


Gosling will have to wait until 2018 for the next Saturn aspect to his natal Saturn but, with the Moon in Capricorn, he not likely to fritter away his time. His horoscope, at least as much as we can see of it, indicates that he is a person who puts more faith in hard work than luck and this attitude should keep him at the top of his profession for quite a while.
