Astrology and the 2015 Oscars: Rosamund Pike

Rosamund Pike was nominated for the Academy Award for her role as Amy, the girl who is gone in “Gone Girl”. The movie is based on the very popular suspense novel written by Gillian Flynn.


Pike’s role in “Gone Girl” is demanding.  Amy starts out as a helpless victim, but by the end of the story she is revealed as one of the most nefarious female sociopaths we’ve seen in the movies since Catherine Tramell in “Basic Instinct.” Apparently, Pike is very good at playing bad.


Oddly enough, the horoscope of Rosamund Pike is dominated by “good girl” aspects. She has the Sun in humanitarian Aquarius opposed by the expansive and open-hearted planet, Jupiter. Mars is also involved in the aspect, conjunct the Sun and opposed to Aquarius, but Mars in Aquarius is probably one of the most non-violent placements of Mars possible. It describes a passion for ideas, not bloodletting.


On the other hand, this opposition does lend itself to intensity and inner strength. This is not the kind of gritty, hard-driving intensity we saw with Bradley Cooper opposition between the Sun and Saturn. This is a joyous intensity, an intensity that comes out of absolute certainty that you are doing the thing you were meant to do.


Another interesting feature in this chart is the tight conjunction between Venus and Neptune in Sagittarius, which then forms a sextile with Pluto and a semi-sextile (30 degree aspect) with Uranus. If Pike was born during the pre-dawn hours, her Moon would also be involved in this aspect.


Without a time of birth it is impossible to make a firm judgment of this complex aspect system, but it would provide for a lot of confusion and conflicting emotions with regard to love and romance. Such conflicts might have helped Pike in portraying the many emotional faces of her character in “Gone Girl”.


Aquarius is one of the least competitive of the Sun signs, and this is probably a good thing for Pike. There is nothing significant going on in the partial chart we have for her right now. On Oscar night the only aspect that will influencing this chart is a sextile from transiting Saturn to her natal Mars, which indicates fatigue and maybe a bit of boredom. So if the camera catches Pike yawning as the winner in her category walks toward the stage, don’t be surprised.


Of course, I am looking at an incomplete horoscope for Rosamund Pike, so there are a lot of things that I can’t see, such as the degree of her Ascendant or Midheaven, or the precise placement of the Moon.  So, if you’re a fan of “Gone Girl” and Rosamund Pike’s performance, don’t lose heart. No judgment made with a partial horoscope can be considered final.
