The Young Stars of Hunger Games

The Hunger Games
is one of those blockbuster movies that can define the career of a young actress or actor. Let’s look at how the timing of this movie intersected with the horoscopes (solar horoscopes, of course, no birth time ) of its two stars: Josh Hutcherson and Jennifer Lawrence.

For Hutcherson, his casting as Peeta Mellark in Apr. 2011 couldn’t have come at a better time. Saturn was square to his natal Saturn indicating that he was about to meet the first big challenge of his young adulthood and a major test of his abilities. Transiting Uranus was opposite his natal Jupiter, an aspect that brings sudden changes and good fortune, while transiting Jupiter was square his natal Mars and natal Jupiter, reinforcing the indications of good luck but adding a layer of stress and high expectations.

Hutcherson was born on Oct. 12, 1992 in Union, KY. (Click here to see a chart for Josh Hutcherson done for noon.) He is a Libra by Sun sign but, without a time of birth, we can’t know what his Moon sign is or much else about his horoscope other that the fact that he has Mercury, Venus and Pluto in Scorpio and Mars in Cancer. This tells us that he is much more emotional than most Libra people, particularly when it comes to relationships.

Jennifer Lawrence got the part of Katniss Everdeen just a couple of months after she was nominated for an Academy Award for her remarkable performance in Winter's Bones. During this period she was riding high on a conjunction of jlawrenceimage
her secondary progressed Jupiter with her natal Venus, a combination that typically brings a prolonged period of good fortune. Also, in February 2011 Jupiter squared her natal Uranus, the same aspect that occurred in Hutcherson’s horoscope when he got his part in The Hunger Games.

Lawrence was born on Aug. 15, 1990 in Louisville, KY. (Click here to see a chart for Lawrence done for noon.) She is a Leo by Sun sign with Venus also in Leo and the Moon in Gemini. What is interesting about her horoscope is the fact that Mars and Pluto are in a wide opposition. This is the same aspect I’ve talked about in the horoscopes of Rush Limbaugh and Sgt. Robert Bales and this gives us a chance to see the different ways such an aspect can manifest. In the case of Lawrence, we see the “monster” qualities of this opposition played out in her portrayal of the gritty and determined heroine in Winter's Bones. The aspect indicates that Lawrence will have a long career play strong female characters.
