If you're curious which zodiac sign is most likely to become famous, you're in for some good news: all of them. The celebrity natal charts of these stars from classic Hollywood include a famous figure from every sign.
Many people consult their horoscope to find out if they're compatible with their partner or if they'll get that job promotion, but some believe that astrology can also be used to tell as about our personalities. Each of the 12 Sun signs of the zodiac ostensibly has innate strengths, weaknesses, and other qualities that comprise who we are. By exploring the zodiac signs of historic figures or old Hollywood celebrities, we can see which star qualities we all possess.
Looking at old Hollywood zodiac signs can also suggest how each sign deals with stress, fame, and life in the spotlight. Considering the dearth of scandals in old Hollywood, many of these celebrities definitely had some problems that may have been either helped or hindered by their zodiac signs. Here's what the celestial stars have to say about the stars of Hollywood.
Although Sir Charles Spencer Chaplin silent on camera for a majority of his career, he still became one of Hollywood's biggest stars. An Aries born on April 16, 1889, Chaplin got his start on the British stage when he was still a child. After coming to America, he rose to fame in the silent era of Hollywood, mostly for portraying a clown-like yet sentimental character known as The Tramp. Extremely multitalented, Chaplin was also known for his directing and filmmaking skills and even wrote the musical scores for some of his movies.
Chaplin's boldness, passion, and drive certainly correspond to the ram-like nature of Aries. Ruled by Mars, his vision to succeed made him a perfectionist, as he was known for shooting hundreds of takes and scrapping actors in the middle of production. Chaplin's impulsivity and lack of patience led to numerous scandalous affairs and several marriages. Another Aries-like trait was his desire to forge his own path through Hollywood while still retaining his independence by forming his own studio.
Born on May 4, 1929, Audrey Hepburn grew up in Belgium and began her performing career as a dancer. She captured Hollywood's eyes and heart after appearing in Gigi on Broadway. Hepburn often played glamorous yet down-to-earth women, gaining fans thanks to her personality as well as her fashion sense. After her most memorable role in 1961's Breakfast at Tiffany's, Hepburn continued to make movies and earn Oscar nominations for her work but decided to focus on humanitarian efforts in her later life, especially as an ambassador for UNICEF.
Hepburn adopted the Taurus's trademark stubbornness in her careful selection of roles and her dedication to her signature style. She may not have taken many risks in her career, but those projects she did select provided a well-rounded portfolio. Thanks to her confidence, strength, and demand for respect, Hepburn succeeded in becoming one of the select few to achieve EGOT status – a title reserved for those who have won at least one Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony. Hepburn's soft sensuality and classic beauty were evident in Venus's influence on Taurus as well, and women will most likely copy her Breakfast at Tiffany's style for years.
Marilyn Monroe may be the epitome of the so-called "twin sign" – the glamorous persona that made her famous was a complete invention. Born Norma Jeane Mortenson on June 1, 1926, she never knew her father and had little memory of her mother, who was placed in a mental institution. Monroe was a victim of several sexual assaults as a young girl, was married at 16, and started a modeling career before making it big in Hollywood. By bleaching her hair blonde and changing her name, Monroe adopted a persona that oozed both sex and glamour, and the world ate it up.
Monroe's breathy vixen side – confident and fun-loving – hid the deeply insecure person she really was. Perhaps because of this lack of confidence, Monroe had several failed marriages and was often reprimanded for being late to shoots, though she frequently blamed her tardiness on stress and illness. At one point, she apparently grew weary of her adopted persona and tried to find work as a legitimate dramatic actress.
Geminis are influenced by Mercury and Air elements, both of which are thought to imply an intellectual nature. Despite what many perceived to be her "bimbo" persona, Monroe lived up to these influences – she even had an alleged affinity for Albert Einstein.
Natalie Wood was a Cancer, born on July 20, 1938. Her mother, Maria, quickly overtook her life, pushing her to pursue an acting career when she was still a child. Maria controlled nearly everything her daughter did – she even told her about a curse that left Wood with a life-long fear of water. During a 1981 boating trip, she tragically drowned.
If Cancers are sensitive crabs, then Wood was definitely a gentle girl who was forced to build a hard shell around herself in order to cope. Holding her emotional turmoil tightly inside, Wood rebelled against her circumstances with sex. This rebellion manifested in numerous affairs, marriages, divorces, and even losing her virginity at 16 to Rebel Without a Cause director Nicholas Ray during her screen test. With the emotional Moon's influence, Wood was a tender-hearted girl who just wanted to be loved, all the way up to her mysterious death.
