When I see actor Sacha Baron Cohen at award shows as one of his crazy characters, I often wonder what he is hiding from.
Looking at his horoscope, I don’t think he’s hiding from anything. His alter-ego characters are probably imaginary friends he’s bringing with him to the ceremony. With four planets in Libra, including the sun, Cohen doesn’t like to travel solo.
Coming in character is Cohen bringing his own “plus one.”
Cohen has Pluto, Uranus, sun and Mercury in Libra with moon in Leo. When writing about moon in Leo, I looked for charts of famous people with moon in Leo. As moon in Leo can’t be ignored, I’m surprised I missed this one.
The comfort zone for moon in Leo is to perform. With Mars in Aquarius opposite moon in Leo, Cohen feels almost a compulsive drive to perform for the crowd, any crowd or anytime there is a crowd.
When Cohen brings one of his alter-egos to the awards ceremonies, it’s probably due to insecurity about being alone in the crowd and his response is to perform.
Cohen’s horoscope is almost all fire and air, no earth and only one planet in water (Venus in Scorpio). In addition to the Libra, Leo and Aquarius energies, Cohen has Jupiter and Neptune in Sagittarius and Saturn in Gemini.
Libra energy represents “the other.” Its opposite sign, Aries, is about assertion of self.
With the sun as conscious self in the sign of the other, identity is formed by reflecting others. We all do this in some way (Libra is in all of our charts somewhere) but Libra sun does it as the primary personality trait.
Coming to events in character is more than acting technique. Cohen is reflecting what we want to see.
Libra loves beauty so because Cohen often reflects obnoxious or abhorrent characters, he must feel as though he’s living in a trash heap. Deep inside he probably wants the unpleasant people he projects to go away.
Libra reflects and then Leo dramatizes.
Libra and Leo are also in love with love itself so Cohen probably had a girlfriend in kindergarten (if it took that long) and then proposed to her.
By reflecting off of others and having an emotional need for audience, the greatest torture for Cohen is to spend time alone. Five minutes of alone time can drive this horoscope mad.
Lack of Earth
Lack of earth in a horoscope means there is little grounding to the personality. With very little water and complete lack of earth, Cohen may reflect identities, but he probably doesn’t fully understand the emotional impact that he is creating.
Cohen may wonder at times what it is that motivates other people to do what they do. In an effort to understand, he mimics.
Neptune and Jupiter are conjunct in Sagittarius. If Cohen’s personality wasn’t ungrounded enough, this aspect creates a dreamy wanderer, one who may also experiment with mind-enhancing drugs.
Opposite is Saturn in Gemini indicates insecurity in communication and with siblings. For all of Cohen’s amazing ability to create character, he may have trouble with small talk on the Tube.
Sometimes Saturn opposite Neptune creates depression or some melancholy. Libra is not a sign that enjoys a trip through sadness. Libra loves beauty and would only enjoy melancholy if some poetry emerged as a result.
Chances are Cohen chases the demons away by traveling (Sagittarius).
Saturn Transiting Libra
Saturn has been transiting Libra for the past two years passing Cohen’s Pluto, then Uranus, then sun and now Mercury.
This writer is counting the days, minutes and seconds when Libra will finally pass into Scorpio (beginning of October). Cohen is probably counting the minutes with me.
Saturn is contraction and in Libra is challenging the fairness and “rightness” of our relationships.
There is also a grand earth trine in the skies right now with Mars in Virgo, Jupiter in Taurus and Pluto in Capricorn. Since Cohen has no earth in his chart, he may wonder why everyone is worrying about work, career and retirement.
Others around him may need his commitment or support and Cohen may not fully understand how dependent others can be on him.
Cohen’s new movie is called “The Dictator.”
I don’t think Cohen’s horoscope has the elements of a dictator. So who is he reflecting?
With moon in Leo maybe Cohen is telling us that all dictators are really just men (and women theoretically) who need attention.
