Emma Thompson (April 15, 1959)
This post was intended as a companion piece for the author of “Remains of the Day”. Besides, I had already written about her former husband and costar, Kenneth Branagh. The impulse to finally write about Emma Thompson was The Guardian story that my sister Anne shared on Facebook yesterday.
This is one of the rare occasions that all the astrology web sites agree that Emma was born at midnight. I was going to resist that timing (just because I can), but then realized that, as far as chart rectification is concerned, this one properly highlights her marriage to Branagh (Mars) @ age 30 and her new found popularity in the world, after winning an Oscar (Moon) @ age 35. Any other time would have lost that one-two punch.
Emma has two inconjuncts.
Mercury Inconjunct Pluto
You have a rather complicated and sometimes tricky mind. You usually prefer to do things in roundabout and involved ways instead of being simply and direct.
This aspect can mean that at certain times in your life you will go through tremendous psychological changes. All your thoughts and opinions will change completely. These stages may seem difficult, but you will be much better off if you let go of the past and welcome the new ideas.
Mars Inconjunct Jupiter
With this aspect you probably are quite active, with abundant energy for anything you want to do. But you must learn to control your energies rather than have them control you. You may be inclined to take excessive risks, to try out things that you are not sure you can do. But be careful, because with this aspect the energies of Mars and Jupiter do not work very smoothly together. If you overextend yourself and try to do more than you are physically capable of, you may have an accident.
A Few Words from Ms. Thompson:
One Final Thought:
Nanny McPhee seemed like Mary Poppins brought closer to our time period. It’s therefore interesting that Emma Thompson played P.L. Travers in “Saving Mr. Banks“, Typecasting? No, serendipity.
