Flirtatious, fun and often flighty, Gemini actors keep us entertained with their wit and versatility. Their performances can thrill us, sadden us, or double us over with laughter. You seldom know what’s around the corner with changeable Gemini.
They can be engaging, but are not always the most altruistic of souls. However, Natalie Portman, Johnny Depp and Michael J. Fox (all born on June 9) are not only exceptional examples of talented Twins (the symbol for Gemini), they also appear to be exceptional souls with a strong purpose in life.
Although they were born under the same sign on the same day, other influences in their charts make them unique. These influences reveal where their inner souls come in – and some personal secrets as well. Let’s take a closer look at their charts to see what’s so compelling about these Gemini stars.
Natalie Portman (June 9, 1981)
This brainy beauty has said she’d rather be smart than be a movie star. That’s not surprising, considering that Mercury, the planet of learning, rules Gemini. The Israeli-born actor graduated from Harvard with a bachelor’s degree in psychology while filming the Star Wars prequel trilogy.
Portman has Sun and Mars in Gemini and Moon in Virgo. Gemini and Virgo are both mutable signs ruled by Mercury, which adds punch to her brainpower and versatility. In addition to playing Padmé Skywalker in the Star Wars prequels, she has starred in the fantasy-thriller V for Vendetta, Mr. Magorium’s Wonder Emporium and the romanticized historical drama The Other Boleyn Girl.
But Portman’s not all intellect – with Mercury and Venus in Cancer, she’s deeply sensitive and caring. A vegetarian since childhood, she is an animal rights advocate who doesn’t eat animal products or wear fur, leather or feathers. The Cancer influences give her a home-loving, nurturing side as well. She craves security and strong emotional ties in her personal life. Mars in Gemini says she admires men who are intellectually gifted and communicate well with her. And although Sun opposing Neptune says she can be overly idealistic about guys, Moon in Virgo gives her a discriminating side that can help in her choice of a partner. Currently she is single.
Johnny Depp (June 9, 1963)
Like Michael J. Fox, Depp has a powerful Earth emphasis in his chart, making him adept at the physical nuances of his characters (think Jack Sparrow’s “drunken” persona in Pirates of the Caribbean). Moon in Capricorn gives him a stoic, grounded emotional nature, while Mercury and Venus in Taurus heighten his sensual charisma, and Mars, Uranus and Pluto conjunct in Virgo – gives him a penetrating, analytical drive for perfection (and a wild side!). He is detail-oriented and intensely focused, both in his career and personal life.
As for Gemini versatility, Depp has portrayed such diverse characters as the quirky youth in Edward Scissorhands, Ichabod Crane in Sleepy Hollow, a psychopath in Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street and the Mad Hatter in Alice in Wonderland 3-D (currently filming). He has worked as an actor, director, screenwriter and producer.
In romance, Saturnian influences including Moon in Capricorn and Mercury and Venus square Saturn indicate he is self-protective and cautious about opening his heart. As flirtatious and fickle as Gemini can be, Depp has a serious side when it comes to love. He has been involved with actors Winona Ryder and supermodel Kate Moss and is currently living with French singer/actor Vanessa Paradis. The couple have two children.
Michael J. Fox (June 9, 1961)
In a dual role typical of the two sides of Gemini, Fox is as known for his comedic performances as for his advocacy for Parkinson’s disease research. He has starred in the film trilogy Back to the Future and TV series Spin City and Family Ties, among others. Then in 1990, at age 29, he began experiencing symptoms of Parkinson’s disease, a degenerative neurological disorder that can cause tremors, rigidity and decreased cognitive functions. Since then, he has founded the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research.
The multifaceted star has Sun in Gemini and Moon and Venus in Taurus. This Air-Earth combination gives him a quick wit with a talent for physical comedy. Venus in Taurus says he’s affectionate and loyal in love. In a case of life imitating art, Fox met his future wife, Tracy Pollan, when she was cast to play his girlfriend in Family Ties. The two married in 1988. Pollan has Sun in Cancer and Moon in Gemini. The latter indicates a strong emotional bond with her Gemini husband. Appropriately enough, the couple’s four children include twins born in 1995.
It’s interesting to note that Fox began showing symptoms of Parkinson’s during his “Saturn return,” which occurs every 28-30 years during a lifetime. It’s a time of coming into one’s destiny. It appears that part of Fox’s karma was to become a spokesperson for Parkinson’s through personal experience with the disease. Mars in Leo, the sign of entertainment and leadership, has helped in both his acting career and advocacy. He’s undoubtedly an old soul who has taken on this personal challenge to promote awareness of the disease.
Gemini artists like Fox, Portman and Depp keep us entertained (and enlightened) with their quick wit, versatility and creativity. But it is how they choose to live their lives that makes them model citizens of the world.
