Horary Question:

My entire life people I have met have been amazingly drawn to me. Strangers I’ve spoken to have always gazed at me with the same wide-eyed awe and uttered “You are going to be so famous” or “You are going to really make it”. The thing is, I just turned 21 and yet I have only flirted with the smallest outskirts of fame. I’ve shot for a few magazines, performed in many theater productions, been in TV and on commercials. I’ve met with all the right people who can get me there…yet it seems I am still here, stuck. What do you see?

Should I just give up and accept my life as an above-average looking person, or continue to charge forth towards the goal I want? I could care less about fame or fortune, I just want to act in TV. I had a Tarot reading about two months ago regarding this, and it said that I am exactly where I need to be, despite me feeling extreme doubts. Though if I am where I need to be (my city is NOT a market for my dreams), why has nothing happened?


Nina Gryphon:

Dear B.,

Thank you for writing to me. I can certainly understand your frustration and impatience, especially since you don’t have forever to launch your career, and time is of the essence. Nowadays, people seem to get started in show business when they’re still in the single-digit years! I cast a horary chart for the time of your question:

Free Reading - Will I Make it in Show Business?

Because you are curious about your career and eventual success, we have to look at the 10th house of career, honor, and fame. In this horoscope, the 10th house is ruled by Moon in Capricorn in the third house. The Moon is avoid of course, meaning that it will not make major aspects in its current sign. None of these indications are particularly positive; the Moon is in the sign of its detriment, it is in a cadent house, and other planets are not assisting it by aspect or reception. This does not bode terribly well for your show business fame.

If we look at the ruler of the first house, which represents you, we get Venus in Leo retrograde in the 10th house. Venus is not terribly strong in Leo, and because it is retrograde, there is a sense that you feel you’re moving backward instead of forward in your career. Unfortunately, we don’t really see any positive breaks happening for Venus in the near future. I suspect that your acting career might not take you as far as you would like.

I think you can definitely act, and you should be able to get some gigs, but I just don’t think it’s going to lead to the kind of success you’re envisioning. This is because Jupiter, which is very strong in its own sign of Sagittarius, rules the fifth house of acting and plays. Still, Jupiter is not really linked to the Moon, which represents your success.

However, I am encouraged to see the benefic and protective star Spica conjunct the ascendant; we see that even though you may not attain your heart’s desire, you will be taken care of and things will turn out okay for you. I looked around the chart to see possible sources of success for you. I think you should continue to pursue acting, as indicated by the strong Jupiter, but also think about creating a career for yourself that will sustain you even as you get older. Hopefully, you are getting a decent education, which is governed by Mercury in the 11th house, ruling the ninth house of higher education. Mercury is quite strong, so this is one possible avenue. The ninth house also rules travel and foreign countries, so you could think about a career which involves lots of travel (such as sales, where it never hurts to be attractive), short distance or long distance.
