With Moon, Venus and Uranus in courageous, fiery Leo, Tom Cruise is a natural for heroic roles (think Top Gun, Mission Impossible, The Last Samurai and Valkyrie). Born today in 1962, he’s is a mix of Fire and Water elements, which says he’s highly emotional, passionate and intuitive. A Grand Water Trine involving Sun in Cancer, Jupiter in Pisces and Neptune in Scorpio deepens his feelings, which in turn fuels his acting skills. He’s also intensely private.
Mars in Taurus makes him a magnet for money as one of Hollywood’s highest paid actors. But without the Leo influences, Cruise would be content with staying on the sidelines of fame. Moon in Leo says he craves attention, while Venus in Leo heightens his talent for performing.
In his personal life, Cruise is lusty, warmhearted, and willful. His wife, actress Katie Holmes, is a Sagittarius with Moon and Jupiter in Leo, indicating she shares her husband’s passion, creativity, and expressiveness.
