Note: This is a two page section from the new book Dance of the Zodiac, Rhythms and Patterns of Creation just released by William Schreib. His column “Celebrity Snapshots” has been featured in DELL HOROSCOPE Magazine for 15 years this January. He claims that his huge collection of celebrity facial photos and his research for the article inspired this book. This 86 page letter-sheet sized booklet is available on the Schreib’s web site at http://www.astro-visions.com. The spiral bound book is $12.95 plus S&H.
To clarify the importance of the luminaries, we will demonstrate how the Sun’s projecting rays and the Moon’s reflecting beams operate in unison, to shape and define the personality.
When a certain Sun sign projects its solar nature and then responds with a certain lunar reaction, we get the primary dynamics, i.e., the mechanism of animation that shapes and defines the individual’s personality. These projective/reflective lights are determined by the astrological signs in which the Sun and Moon are placed.
Using groups of common modes and elements, we will show how these two primal lights define the “inspired soul”, the psyche and the psychological motives of each and every individual.
Note: For all of us, these lights are altered and re-colored by the angles and positions of the other planets– not only on the day of our birth, but also by their current transits.
Luminaries in the Same Mode (Cardinal, Fixed, and Mutable)
The modes are the “designing patterns” or forces that drive, mold and change all creation. Here are examples of celebrities whose luminaries are driven by one of these three modes:
Sarah Jessica Parker, Cardinal Sun and Moon:
With a Sun and Moon in cardinal signs, Sarah’s personality is highly driven, distinctly impetuous and tenacious.
Sarah’s Aries Sun gives her the instant impulses, the fiery temperament and the seemingly unstoppable drive that she displayed in “Sex in the City”. Her earthy Capricorn Moon reactions solidify her cardinal solar urges, as they drive her down a long, well planned path– to add structure and a sense of durability to her impulsive solar actions. Like the battery bunny, she keeps going and going.
Ed Asner, Fixed Sun and Moon:
The previous urge to “go” turns to “stop” when the fixed signs take control. This immovable nature was part of Ed Asner’s role as Lou Grant on “The Mary Tyler Moore Show”. There, his Scorpio Sun constantly struggled to keep the emotional temperaments of his staff under control. With his fixed Taurus Moon, his reactions demanded even more control. This only brought more resistance, which fortunately, provided substantial comical relief.
Ben Stiller, Mutable Sun and Moon:
To break the pattern of “hold”, just give things a whole new twist! Expect big changes when this Sagittarius gallops into the room. His mutable fire will always keep things in an excited whirl.
However, Stiller’s enthusiastic solar sparks are often doused by the mutable water of his Pisces Moon. The stirring action didn’t quit, it just becomes liquid and emotional! In this slosh of uncertainty, Stiller often expresses a sense of bewilderment as he wonders if “everything that he sees” is the real truth.
Luminaries in the Same Element (Fire, earth, air, or water).
Next, we will show what happens when the luminaries are placed in a common element.The quality, nature or “vibratory frequency” of their elemental expressions will not change. Only the mode or patterning action will change.
Tyra Banks, Sun and Moon in Fire
The most intense and sharpest element is Fire!
With fiery lights, this Sagittarius Centaur turns up the heat, stopping only briefly to remove the often-placed hoof from her mouth. Her animated mutable solar energies are sharpened and intensified by the directed forces of her cardinal Aries Moon. Unlike fellow Archer Ben Stiller, her reactions reveal little emotions and sensitivity. Instead, what we get is a barrage of forcefully driven opinions, and the overwhelming presence of Fire!
Gene Wilder, Sun and Moon in Air
The expansive energies constantly circulate, but not so intensely as fire, when Wilder’s Gemini Sun and Aquarius Moon display the flighty, highly mental qualities of air. When Gene skirts into a scene, he barely touches the ground, his Gemini hands fanning the air. His vaporous personality is enhanced by his Aquarius Moon, as his fixed air reactions bring intuitive flashes and outrageous surprises.
Will Ferrell, Sun and Moon in Water
In the feminine elements, the energies are consolidated, but rarely contained in the liquid medium of water.
Ferrell’s cardinal water pulls the tidal surges back and forth in a fluid, churning environment. Ferrell’s Cancer Sun feels the insecurity of his unstable surroundings, which he constantly tries to contain. In unanchored moments, his reactive Scorpio Moon places the churning waters on hold, as he focuses his emotions to empower some sense of control. Comically, Ferrell’s “control freak” impulses often bring a bloated sense of self-confidence that, with his resurgent solar light, quickly washes away.
George Clooney, Sun and Moon in Earth
The most solid of any grouping would be those with Earth lights. Appropriately, Clooney appears to be the “rock” of this bunch. George’s fixed Taurus Sun keeps him locked in the here and now, contentedly enjoying life’s physical pleasures. All the while, a tenacious Capricorn Moon is cautiously calculating all of his future movements. George has the same Moon as Sarah J. Parker, but it is clear that the lack of fiery lights makes his nature and demeanor far more grounded.
