I’ve been following the career of popular actress Demi Moore ever since she was on General Hospital in 1982. She’s charming, adorable and a perfect example of a Scorpio, a determined and ambitious sign. Scorpio willingly goes under the knife to transform self into a youthful ideal. Frequent transformation is common in the life and takes various forms including plastic surgery, implants, cosmetic makeovers and personality changes for movie roles. Like many actresses and models that depend on their youth and good looks for their livelihood Demi has put much time and money into preserving her body.
She made the news this week with a hospital visit and possible recurrence of substance abuse. Rumor has it that her problem was a factor in the breakup of her marriage to Ashton Kutcher. Scorpio wants to explore intense experiences and is often attracted to drugs and alcohol. Demi did time in rehab during the mid 1980’s. She was the product of two alcoholic parents. Alcoholism and substance abuse often run in families.
Demi has a stellium of the Sun, Venus, Mercury and Neptune in Scorpio opposite the Moon in Taurus and square Mars in Leo. Clearly the Scorpio traits are pronounced. The Moon shows that her childhood was troubled with violence and poverty. She moved around a lot while growing up. Emotionally she is stubborn and wants to have her own way. With Mars in Leo she has a fiery temperament.
Her rising sign is Pisces and its ruler Neptune conjunct her Scorpio Sun accents the desire for escape in one form or another. Pisces or Neptune-ruled people can become addicted to drugs or alcohol and struggle with it often during the life. They are also prone to accidental food poisoning or overdoses.
Scorpio’s ruling planet Pluto is conjunct Uranus in Virgo. This conjunction is opposite Jupiter in the 12th house Pisces, which expands the desire for drugs or alcohol. This is typical horoscope synchronicity. Pluto in Virgo can indicate obsession with health, prescriptions and surgery. I have known Virgos who were obsessive fitness nuts, alcoholics or cocaine addicts.
Saturn is in Aquarius, which increases stubborn tendencies and obstacles. This almost completes a Grand Cross in the fixed signs, aspecting all those Scorpio planets. We might as well work with her chart as a Grand Cross seeing as how the planets are well integrated. You would think such a difficult chart would completely defeat a person but this is not the case. The Grand Cross exponentially increases a person’s drive to not only survive but to succeed. She has come a long way already. Hopefully this is just a minor bump in the road. If she gets control of her demons she will celebrate her fiftieth birthday this year! But who can tell by looking at her?
