Six Degrees of Astrological Separation

If we’re all six degrees separated from Kevin Bacon, people have been wondering, are we also six degrees separated from him astrologically?

It’s a question trending on the Internet right now. People are up at night wondering.


Since there are only 12 signs in the zodiac representing 12 energies, chances are you are just like actor Kevin Bacon in some way.

What you need to remember is that there are ten planets (includes Pluto and moon) in 12 signs in 12 houses and that’s where we differ from Bacon.

Bacon, for example, may get up in the morning and eat breakfast, as you do. He may, however, choose to eat raw Ramen noodles whereas you eat leftover pizza.


People all over the world get up and eat breakfast, just like you and Kevin Bacon.

It’s refreshing to learn how much we are alike on this large planet. We can stop fighting now.

The First Degree

Actor Kevin Bacon has sun in warm, loving Cancer and moon (and Mars) in aggressive, competitive Aries. That’s a bit of a conflict as Cancer wants a stable emotional environment and Aries keeps upsetting the apple cart.

Saturn in Sagittarius and Mercury/Uranus in Leo create a grand fire trine which clearly brings this Cancer out of his shell. Bacon has five of the ten planets in fire.

In fact, Bacon’s Cancer sun has few watery playmates in the chart with only Neptune in Scorpio.

Poor sun.

I wonder how much Bacon’s sun tries to put out the raging fire in the rest of his personality.

But how does this relate to the rest of us?

Second Degree

Actress Angelina Jolie, like Bacon, has moon in Aries.

Like Bacon, for Jolie life is too slow, drivers too cautious, red lights too long and people talk too slow for this fast-moving, fast-acting, impulsive moon sign.

Aries moon is a bit neurotic for this reason, acting a bit like a moon in a water sign. Aries wants to jump out of its skin, do everything, be everything – now.

And, by the way, Aries moon is competing with you. Did you just self-scan your groceries at the supermarket? That Aries behind you will do it faster! You didn’t know it, because you were already in your car driving away, but they beat you.

Unlike Bacon, Jolie’s Saturn is in Cancer suggesting that home is a place of limitation, a place she doesn’t feel she truly belongs. Saturn in Cancer is looking for comfort, for belonging which the Aries moon threatens because, again, Aries moon is knocking over the apple cart all the time.

Third Degree

Actor Leonardo Dicaprio also has Saturn in Cancer. But he has a bit of water to help out that Saturn with Mercury, Mars, sun and Venus in Scorpio. He’s also got Jupiter in Pisces.

His moon is in Libra tucked between Pluto and Uranus.

Yikes! I hadn’t realized what an intense boy our Leo is. Girls, if you do hook up with him, remember that he’s extremely possessive and controlling. You might do better to love him on screen while sitting in the theater where there’s a bit of air to breathe.

Dicaprio’s Neptune in Sagittarius brings an attraction to things far and foreign. It’s trine Pluto in Libra so these unusual partnerships are what transforms Dicaprio from controlling to cooperative.

Controlling or not, Mars and Venus in Scorpio suggests many a girl won’t mind being stuck at home with Dicaprio’s eagle eye upon their every move.

Good luck girls.

Fourth Degree

Actress Shailene Woodley also has Mars in Scorpio. Like Dicaprio, she’s got some controlling aspects with Pluto conjunct that Mars and sun in Scorpio.

She’s born of the generation with Uranus and Neptune in Capricorn. As current transiting Pluto begins its transformation of all this generation was born into, this group will have a lot of work to do to clean up the mess of broken structures left by their recent ancestors.

Woodley has moon in super-sensitive Pisces which seems, to my eyes, to make her an incredible actress who shared the spotlight with George Clooney in The Descendants as leading lady. As an aside, Ohio Astrology would like to present her with an award for that role. Very well done.

Woodley’s Venus in Libra is the area that provides some relief to her serious chart in the form of fun and frivolous pleasures with loving company.

Woodley is not one to make friends easily but if you are her friend, it is for life. She would even risk her life for those she loves.

Jupiter in Virgo is opposite moon in Pisces suggesting health interest if not health concerns. The Astrotheme chart has no time of birth so we don’t know where this is in her chart or if it is truly opposed by degree.

Fifth Degree

Actor Will Smith also has Jupiter in Virgo. Smith was born during the Pluto/Uranus conjunction in Virgo so has those two planets mixed up with the benevolent Jupiter. He also has Mars in Virgo but in the early degrees of the sign and not involved in the Jupiter/Pluto/Uranus conjunction.

Smith’s sun is in Libra (with Mercury and Venus) with moon (and far away Neptune) in Scorpio.

The Astrotheme chart places most of Smith’s planet’s beneath the ascendant suggesting a more personal, less public, life. Saturn at the top of the chart in Aries suggests lack of confidence while the Leo rising is throwing its mane back to impress the world around with its strength and ferociousness.

Smith seems a truly shy person who probably performs only when there is a crowd. If we catch him at home cleaning or balancing the checkbook (four planets in Virgo in the 2nd house) or writing sad poetry (Libra and Scorpio energy), we’d see a man without façade.

I can imagine one of those pictures now, of Smith hunched over a ledger, the electric bill in his hand, reading glasses on, caught unawares, looking like an average Joe paying the bills.

Four planets in Virgo suggest a worrying nature and health concerns, possibly stemming from that very nature. Smith may be a pill popper but one who pops only mega doses of vitamins. I can also see the “average Joe” Smith at the health food store looking at nutrition labels.

There is probably excessive concern with diet and exercise.

Sixth Degree

Like Smith, this blogger is born during the Pluto/Uranus conjunction in Virgo. This is the generation that brought us hand sanitizer and made “organic” a household word.

We have now connected our astrological separation from Kevin Bacon.

What’s even more eerie about this connection is how much this writer likes bacon and eggs.

The universe is unfathomable!
