I have to come clean. I saw the new Star Trek movie. Twice. I couldn’t help it. I’m not even a Trekkie and I thought it was awesome. Star Trek, it may surprise you, actually deals with a range of philosophical, metaphysical and even psychic quandaries. Throughout the movie I felt guilty for having a strange crush on Mr. Spock. Not Leonard Nimoy! Newcomer Zachary Quinto from the TV show Heroes. He killed it as Spock. He brought emotional sensitivity to an emotionless Vulcan. If that’s not talent, I don’t know what is.
I took it upon myself to check out his astrology, and I looked at Leonard Nimoy’s stars for good measure. They didn’t have ANYTHING in common. In fact, Nimoy has an abundance of impulsive Aries – not what you’d expect from a Vulcan, they are supposed to be the most rational beings in the universe after all.
Quinto on the other hand, I could see a direct relationship to the character. A Pluto in Libra placement gives him an interest in psychology and sociology – something Spock is very attune to. Jupiter in Gemini gives him a thirst for knowledge (there’s a great scene where young Spock is in a learning pod absorbing everything about the universe). But my favorite is his Saturn Trine Neptune. According to our Kepler astrology tool, this placement means: “You are philosophical about life and very perceptive, but may have an exaggerated sense of your own wisdom and depth of understanding of religious, metaphysical, artistic, or intuitive subjects.” They should just rename that aspect Spock – talk about being conflicted.
