Astrology and the Oscar Race: Part TenWatts image

Though I don’t claim to be an expert when it comes to movies and generally only take a passing interest in who wins Academy Awards, I thought it might be interesting to look at the horoscopes of this year’s Oscar contenders for best actor and best actress.


Our final contender is Naomi Watts, nominated for her role in The Impossible. As with most of our other nominees, we do not have a time of birth and will be using a horoscope charted for noon. (Click here to see the chart.)


This partial horoscope for Naomi Watts presents a conundrum. It’s hard to say anything about it without knowing the exact placement of the Moon and, without a time of birth, this cannot be known. Though the Moon is in Sagittarius in this noon chart, it could be in Capricorn if Watts was born late at night. If she was born early in the morning he Moon would be in a close square with Jupiter. A birth time late in the day would give her a square with Uranus.


So all we can really talk about with this chart is the basics. Watts has the Sun in Libra. She appreciates beauty and balance and is something of an idealist. She has Mars in Virgo which should help curb that idealism and give her an appreciation of practical realities. Venus is in Scorpio which gives Watts an in depth understanding of human emotion, something that would be essential for an actress.


The last couple of years have been grueling for Naomi Watts. The Uranus-Pluto square that I’ve written about so often on these pages was connecting with her natal Sun during this period and it couldn’t have been any fun. It is likely her life and point of view changed in a very fundamental way during 2011 and 2012 and now she’s ready for a rest. I don’t see aspects indicating a big win for Watts on Oscar night but, what I do see, tells me she won’t be all that disappointed.


Unfortunately for Ms. Watts, just as Uranus and Pluto decide to leave her alone, she’s going to get hit with an opposition to her natal Mars by transiting Neptune. This aspect is similar to the one that will be influencing Quevenzhane Wallis over the next couple of years. Watts will have difficulty realizing professional goals during this period. She will encounter broken promises, delays and deception. However, these impediments will give her the opportunity to look inward and deal with personal and spiritual issues.
