The Wannabe Actress who Died Tragically

Jayne Mansfield (April 19, 1933 – June 28, 1967)

It should be remembered that all actors and actresses are just ordinary folks when off-screen. Jayne Mansfield was no different. People compared her to Marilyn Monroe, but in reality, she was just a Playboy pin-up, hoping for stardom.

This birth chart was already on my computer, so I cannot verify its authenticity. However, those two inconjuncts may be auspicious.

Mercury Inconjunct Mars

You often find it difficult to separate yourself from what you believe. You fight very hard for your ideas, even when you suspect you are wrong. You must learn that you are not your ideas, that you have them but are not them. If you do not learn this, it will be difficult even to have a friendly talk with friends, because you are always trying to make a point, defend your opinion or prove somebody else wrong. This also makes you irritable and touchy, so that others prefer not to be around you. Of course, you should not give in about something you seriously believe in, but it is unlikely that you would make that mistake.

Jupiter Inconjunct Saturn

This aspect may signify great restlessness and unease, so that it is difficult for you to achieve a state of balance or feel calm and at ease. Often you have contradictory impulses; you want to plunge ahead into some relatively risky activity, but you are held back by feelings of caution or inhibition. It is often difficult to decide whether you want to act on your own or in a situation that is very structured and regulated. If your situation is too structured, you will feel closed in and repressed; you will want to break free and go off by yourself and do things your way. But when you get that freedom, you feel rather lost and at loose ends, and you find it difficult to set your own pace.

The Accident

One cannot imagine anyone surviving this crash, and yet the three children sleeping in the back did do just that. A lot of the images have Ms. Mansfield stretched out on the side of the road. Too gruesome.

There is a two-handed Yod in this death chart: Moon inconjunct Mars, Moon inconjunct Venus, Venus inconjunct the Midheaven. I believe this is symbolic of how she became more famous for how she died, than when she was alive.

Interesting transit line up, eh? The ‘fatal’ Sun is conjunct her natal Ascendant; the ‘fatal’ Ascendant is conjunct her natal Sun; and the ‘fatal’ Mercury is conjunct her natal Pluto. This ‘accident’ looks fated.

I am an Astrologer who also writes about world events. My first eBook "At This Point in Time" is available through most on-line book stores. I have now serialized my second book "The Star of Bethlehem" here. And I am experimenting with birth and death charts. If you wish to contact me, or request a birth chart, send an email to (And, in case you are also interested, I have an extensive list of celebrity birth and death details if you wish to 'confirm' what you suspect may be a past-life experience of yours.) Bless.
