The greatest body-builder of all times, one of the
biggest Hollywood stars and the present Governor of California,
Arnold Schwarzenegger was born on July 30 1947 in Austria, in a
little town Thal near Graz. At the time
of his birth, the Sun was in Leo conjunction Saturn and Pluto. According
to the facts known about him, Schwarzenegger is one of the few typical
and genuine natives of the sun sign and is distinguished by all positive
characteristics of Leo strength, power, grandness, confidence,
aspirations toward success, glory and powerful position. It is easy to
see this from his appearance, manners, behavior and choice of
profession. Leo natives are often seen in
sports, acting, and politics the very professions that made
Schwarzenegger famous and distinguishable from the others.
Planetary positions at the time of his
birth are impressive. On the one hand, there is a powerful conjunction
between the Sun, Saturn and Pluto in Leo while, on the other, there is a
conjunction between Uranus and Mars in Gemini and almost exact water
trine between Mercury and Jupiter.
dilemma remaining is where could the ascendant be?
His horoscopes that can be found on
particular astrological web-sites state rough time of his birth as 4:00
AM, meaning that his ASC is in Cancer and Venus is close to ASC, while
Mars and Uranus are in the 12th house. This produces a rather
confusing and very likely incorrect birth chart.
||It is absurd to even think that a
man, who is the symbol of a masculine strength, has the ASC
(physical build) in a delicate, emotional Cancer with the
conjunction between Venus (roundness, softness) and ASC, while
at the same time Mars (manliness, muscles, strength) is in the
However, if we move his time of birth 2
hours back more precisely2:02 AM - we get a much more logical picture.
ASC is at the 21st degree of Gemini with Mars and Uranus placed in the
1st house. Of course, positions of other planets and cusps also fit into
right places, that is, support the facts about Schwarzenegger. To
summarize, this is how we get the correct horoscope.
Schwarzenegger was born on 30.07.1947. (15E27,
47N05), 02:05 AM CED-2
First of all,
why ASC has to be in Gemini?
ASC represents physical looks,
appearance and the first associations evoked in connection with the
person we think about in this case Schwarzenneger.
association about Schwarzenegger is a unique (Uranus) musculature (Mars)
i.e. strength and muscularity (Mars).
the way he speaks (Gemini) English with
German (Mars) accent is striking.
This can be seen by the position of the ruler of ASC Mercury in Cancer
trine Jupiter. Therefore, he speaks (Mercury) a foreign (Jupiter)
language (Mercury) with his native (Cancer) accent (Mercury). And
further, the mentioning of his name (Gemini) evokes his roles in movies
where, the most famous one is from a science fiction (Uranus) action
(Mars) movie where he plays the role of a
cyborg (Uranus) killer
(Mars) from future (Uranus) -Terminator.
The position of Mars is particularly interesting in his
horoscope. Namely, it is placed exactly on the fixed star
Bellatrix which is of a Martian
nature i.e. bestows the traits such as self-confidence,
strength, energy, fighting spirit, pride, courage,
organizational skills, love for violence and fighting. Here,
Mars is uniquely placed and empowered by an extremely strong
fixed star. This position is the main
reason for Schwarzenegger's physical strength and it is
not surprising that as a teenager (title of Mr. Europe when he
was 18) he became a leading (Mars) world's bodybuilder (Mars).
Schwarzenegger was born and raised in a
small, mountainous town Thal, in a more
than 300-year old house of his father.
This is indicated by the position of the Moon in Capricorn beginning
of life birth home (the Moon) in a mountainous, remote, rural
(Capricorn) place. The cusp of the 4th house in Leo tells us that he was
raised in his father's house, while the ruler of this house, the Sun
conjunction Saturn, implies the considerable oldness of that house.
Gustav was born on 17/8/1907 and
his mother Aurelia on
30/7/1922 both parents have the Sun in
Leo - which is exactly where the 4th house begins (parents). The Sun
conjunction Saturn explains a considerable age difference between his
parents. Gustav Schwarzenegger used to be a police officer which, on the
one hand, is indicated by the Sun in Leo while, on the other, this is
supported by the ruler of the 10th house (father) Uranus conjunction
The fourth member of the family,
Arnold's elder brother Meinherd, was
born on 17/7/1946. Three planets placed
in the 3rd house of a masculine sign (brothers, sisters) tell us that he
has a brother. The presence of Saturn indicates that this is an older
brother. The cusp of the 3rd house and position of Mercury (brother) in
that sign show that he was born under Cancer. Meinherd died in a traffic
accident in 1971. This is indicated by the ruler of the 10th house (8th
house (death) counting from the 3rd house) Uranus in Gemini (traffic)
conjunction Mars (accident) at the degree of Scorpio (death).
brought Schwarzenegger a unique achievement. Namely, he holds a
record in the number of titles won in this sport
His ASC begins at the 21st degree
(Sagittarius-records) conjunction Mars (sport). The ruler of ASC,
Mercury, trines Jupiter (records). Similarly, the cusp of the 10th house
is at the degree of Sagittarius showing that in one of his professions
(10th house) he will achieve record results. Uranus (the ruler of the
10th house) conjunction Mars (sport) shows that this will be in the area
The cusp of
the 10th house in Aquarius shows that he
tends to change (Aquarius) his occupations (10th house). Uranus,
the ruler of the 10th house in Gemini, on the other hand, indicates dual
professional aspirations. Be reminded that as an active bodybuilder
Schwarzenegger used to act in movies. He continued to do so even when he
became the Governor of California.
At the beginning of his film career,
Schwarzenegger's long name and bad accent were major obstacles to his
establishment in Hollywood. This is why
Saturn has to be in the 3rd house. It is a common knowledge that the
position of Saturn in a sign, a house and aspects in a person's
horoscope show the type of obstacles and restrictions this person has to
face. In this case, Saturn (impediment, barrier) is in Leo conjunction
Sun (acting) in the 3rd house (name, communication, accent).
Being an athlete, Schwarzenegger
traveled a lot which can be seen in the position of Mars (sport) in
Gemini (travels) in a strong 3rd house. In
1968, he moved to the American state of California where he
started a family and fully established himself professionally. For this
decision, he has to thank the ruler of ASC -Mercury. The position of
Mercury in Cancer would normally make us think that he will travel a lot
across his country (Cancer). However, Mercury is in almost exact trine
with Jupiter (foreign countries) in Scorpio and hence, the position of
Mercury tells us that he will go to the country born under the sign of
Cancer America. Additionally, Jupiter
indicates that this has to be California
(Sagittarius) the state of film industry
On the other hand, the answer to the
question why California can be found
in astrocartography. Namely, the planets
going through the territory of this state are no less than
Mars and Uranus
the planets placed at his ASC (first step, action). It is interesting
to note that the cusps of house axes (ASC,DESC,IC,MC) - the most
important points in a horoscope - are at the
21st degree (Sagittarius degree), which is why he (ASC) goes
abroad and gets married there (DESC), starts a family (IC) and makes a
In 1986, Schwarzenegger marries an
American woman Maria Shriver. She was
born on 6/11/1955; she is a reporter and
is related to the Kennedy family. She
met Schwarzenegger at a tennis tournament.
The cusp of
the 7th house begins in Sagittarius at the 21st degree and thus,
it was to be expected that he would marry a
foreigner. Jupiter, the ruler of the 7th house is in Scorpio
her native sign. Sagittarius and Jupiter symbolize tennis and thus, it
is not surprising that she would meet him at the tennis tournament. The
ruler of the 7th house trine Mercury (journalism) tells us that she is a
reporter. The Moon is placed in the 7th house in Capricorn at
the 2nd degree. This means that a member
of her family (the Moon) was in a very high
place (2nd degree) in the past
Owing to his physical built,
Schwarzenegger entered the Guiness Book of
World Records as the most perfectly developed man in the history
of the world . It is easy to assume why the ruler of ASC (he,
physical built) Mercury (book) trines Jupiter (records).
In April 1997, Schwarzenegger had
a heart surgery. This distressing event
in his life possibly is the best proof of the correctness of this
horoscope. Being born under Leo, it will be natural to expect him to
have a heart problem at some point of his life. However, the surgery is
shown in the cusp of the 8th house (operations, surgeries) beginning at
the 29th degree (Leo-heart) of Capricorn while the ruler of this house
Saturn is in Leo conjunction Sun. This cannot be seen in the chart in
which ASC is in Cancer since, in that case, the 8th house is in Aquarius
and its ruler Uranus in Gemini is in conjunction with Mars.
The analysis of this rectified chart
would remain incomplete if it did not include Schwarzeneggers movies
for, the kinds of films he starred in and his roles need to be seen in
the chart. First, let us remind ourselves about the function and meaning
of ascendant. While the essence of a human being can be deciphered by
the position of the Sun and Moon, the purpose of ASC is to tell us about
someone's physical appearance, character and temper and, above all,
someone's personality how this person presents himself/herself to
others and, consequently, how others see this person. By the logic of
things, a man who chose an acting career will present himself by his
movies i.e. play the roles in accordance with the nature of ASC and
planets in the 1st house.
what is the nature of films in which Schwarzenegger acts and what kind
of roles he mainly plays?
ASC in Gemini
and Mars and Uranus in the 1st house provide the answer. The
presence of Mars tells us that these are mostly action movies with
fighting, violence, shootings and killings. Uranus adds speed,
excitements, explosions and futuristic elements while Gemini bring usual
street chases, catchy lines and a certain amount of humor, frivolity and
naivety, since the majority of his movies target younger generations
i.e. children and teenagers (Gemini).
It will be also interesting to take a
look at the photographs i.e. posters
that announced his movies. He mostly had that military look, held a
weapon in his hand, and his muscles were particularly pronounced. The
photograph taken from the movie Terminator 2 is particularly
interesting. It shows his face (ASC) split into two (Gemini) parts.
The film, which brought Schwarzenegger fame and glory, was
Conan the Barbarian made in
1982. The next year, he made Conan the
Destroyer. These two movies are precisely described by
the Sun conjunction Saturn and Pluto in the 3rd house.
Therefore, he became famous (the Sun) in a film where he plays a
(the Sun), ruthless
and relentless (Saturn, Pluto) warrior (Mars at ASC) from the past
(Saturn). Since this constellation is placed in the 3rd house
(Gemini-dual sign), two films were made with the titles corresponding to
the symbolic of the planets Conan the
Barbarian (Saturn) and Conan the Destroyer (Pluto).
In 1984, we could see a cult film
directed by James Cameron The Terminator.
This was followed by Terminator 2 in
1991 and Terminator 3 made in 2003.
It is simply
amazing to see how much Mars conjunction Uranus in Gemini describes the
story about Terminator.
As we know, in this science fiction
(Uranus) action (Mars) movie he plays the role of a cyborg (Uranus)
killer (Mars) coming into our present (Gemini) from the future (Uranus).
On the surface ( ASC), he is an extremely strong (Mars) man
(Gemini-human sign). However, he is actually a machine inside
(Uranus-machine at the degree of Pisces hidden, invisible). He is
ruthless, cruel, incapable of mercy or forgiveness (Moon in Capricorn).
He tries to reach his goal (Sun) persistently, calculatedly and
systematically (Saturn) and his goal is to kill and destroy (Pluto).
Therefore, the whole horoscope shows that Schwarzenegger was the only
person fit to play this role. In addition, many scenes from the
Terminator trilogy can be seen in the horoscope largely through Mars
conjunction Uranus in Gemini. For example, in the first movie there is a
scene in which he runs (Gemini) through the fire (Mars) and jumps
(Uranus) onto the car (Gemini) breaking (Mars) the windshield (Gemini)
with his hand (Gemini). Soon after that, he is seen bursting into the
police station (Mars) with his car (Gemini) and killing (Mars) all the
police officers. At the end of the movie, he gets out of the truck
(Gemini) on fire (Mars) and dies in flames (Mars-fire at the degree of
Scorpio death) only to resurrect as a machine (Uranus-machine at the
degree of Pisces -resurrection). The second film has scenes that are
even more graphic. The most striking is the one in which he cuts (Mars)
his own hand (Gemini) with a knife (Mars).
In 1985, the movie was released with
the symbolic title Commando starring
Scwarzenegger, of course, as an indestructible soldier (Mars) John
A year later, he made the movie
Raw Deal where, this time, he played the role of a police
1987 brought a new blockbuster -
Predator. In this movie, he also
played a soldier (Mars), this time fighting (Mars) an alien (Uranus).
The next movie released in 1988 was
called The Running Man. Mars
conjunction Uranus (speed) in Gemini
In 1988, another movie was released
with the symbolic title Red Heat
(Mars). Shwarzenegger played the role of a Russian communist (Uranus at
the 24th degree degree of Pisces-Russia) Captain (Mars)
The title of the next movie
starring Schwarzenegger and
Danny DeVito does not need any
additional comments -Twins.
Total Recall made in 1990 is one
of his movies which have the most intense symbolic of Mars and
Uranus in Gemini. The film is science fiction (Uranus) action
(Mars) where Schwarzenegger goes on a
journey (Gemini) to, no less than planet Mars! Film ends
by Schwarzenegger releasing
(Uranus) oxygen (Gemini)
on Mars! In the same year,
another movie with interesting title was released
After all these box-office hits, the
next film was a total failure which announced the period of bad movies
and decline of Schwarzenegger's popularity. Of course, the name of this
film is symbolic Last Action
(Mars) Hero (Mars). The following films,
although unsuccessful, also reflected the symbolic of Mars and Uranus in
Gemini. The most striking example is The 6th
Day a futuristic action about cloning (Uranus).
There were also two (Gemini)
Schwarzeneggers appearing in the film.
In the end, I would like to draw your
attention to one more interesting detail. Inspired by Schwarzenegger's
appearance (ASC), George Butler and Robert Fiore wrote a book (Gemini)
based on which a documentary (Gemini) was made entitled
Pumping Iron-Mars conjunction Uranus at ASC...
