Scorpios are the sexy sirens of the zodiac, but that doesn’t just apply to the boudoir — most of them use their magnetism and talent to create something unforgettable. Scorpio actors Julia Roberts, Jodie Foster and Rachel McAdams have true star power, and in the case of Roberts and Foster, they also have tremendous influence in Hollywood as filmmakers. This isn’t surprising, because acquiring power is such a pivotal part of a Scorpio’s nature. Let’s take a deeper look at the charts of these talented actresses to discover the secrets to their success.
Julia Roberts (October 28, 1967)
With Sun, Mercury, and Neptune in Scorpio, Roberts has both charisma and influence. She’s one of the highest-paid actors worldwide, often taking the number-one spot on Hollywood Reporter‘s annual “power list” of female actors. Roberts shot to fame after the release of Pretty Woman in 1990. Intriguingly, she plays a hooker, capitalizing on the twin Scorpio themes of sex and money.
So where does her creative power come from? While Scorpio heightens her allure, her Moon in Leo deepens her creativity. It also gives her the ability to lead. Roberts is not only an award-winning actor, with an Oscar for Best Actress (Erin Brockovich) under her belt, but a producer as well. She’s determined, emotional, and controlling: Mars in Capricorn lends her a talent for business, and with Venus conjunct Pluto in Virgo, no detail escapes her. She can be very picky about her film projects, as well as in her love life. She was married to singer Lyle Lovett, another Scorpio, for two years in the early 1990s. Later, in 2002, she married Daniel Moder, and they have twins — a boy and a girl — as well as a younger son.
Jodie Foster (November 19, 1962)
Like Roberts, Foster created a breakthrough character that mirrors her Sun sign: At the age of 14, she landed the role of a teenaged prostitute in Taxi Driver (1976). Another Scorpioesque role that changed her career was in the landmark movie The Accused (1988), in which she played a rape survivor… and earned an Oscar for Best Actress. Her second Oscar was for her memorable role as an FBI trainee in The Silence of the Lambs (1991). Need we mention that detective work also falls squarely within the Scorpio domain?
Foster also has Sun, Mercury, Venus and Neptune in Scorpio, which makes her extremely private about her personal life; there has long been speculation about her sexual orientation. She gave birth to two boys, but has never revealed the identity of their father. Indeed, the conjunction of Moon, Uranus, and Pluto in Virgo lends Foster a highly unusual emotional nature. She is extremely intelligent, analytical, and perceptive: for instance, she graduated magna cum laude from Yale with a BA in literature. However, the complex conjunction in Virgo can be problematic in relationships, making her alternately passionate and detached. She is a bit of a loner — and at the same time intensely loyal to those she loves.
As for what drives her, Mars in fiery Leo heightens her talent for drama and leadership. It also gives her an outgoing side that lightens up the watery Scorpio influences. All in all, Foster is a complex and accomplished woman.
Rachel McAdams (November 17, 1978)
This Canadian actor has starred in such films as The Notebook (2004), Red Eye (2005), and The Time Traveler’s Wife (2009). In true Scorpio fashion, she’s playing the love interest of the famous detective Sherlock Holmes — Robert Downey Jr. — in a film to be released in December of 2009.
McAdams has Sun, Venus and Uranus in Scorpio. The Uranus conjunctions indicate that she’s a bit of a rebel who needs to find her own path. Adding to this independent streak is the conjunction of Mars, Mercury and Neptune in adventurous Sagittarius. This trio also gives McAdams a powerful intuition, and her spiritual beliefs are important to her. The strongly aspected Neptune, which rules filmmaking, also gives her a lively imagination. What’s more, Jupiter in Leo adds to her skills as an entertainer.
As for romance, Venus in Scorpio says she’s passionate and intense in relationships. Mars in Sag indicates a fondness for fiery men who are bold, adventurous, and enthusiastic. McAdams has been linked romantically with actor Ryan Gosling (a Scorpio) and Josh Lucas (a Gemini). Whoever captures her heart will need to give her plenty of freedom to grow and be her own person.
Mysterious, magnetic, and compelling, Scorpios need effective outlets for their intense emotional natures. Roberts, Foster, and McAdams are examples of Scorpios who have successfully channeled their instincts into their creativity — to the benefit of the rest of us!
