Lindsay Lohan – New York’s wild child facing up to the truth in 2012.
The next year will decide if Lindsay Lohan really does decide to turn her life around. 2011 was a year of scandal, court appearances, alleged theft charges, and the normal drink, drugs and front page newspaper headlines. Lindsay’s life seemed to be falling apart, but hope does exist, if she wants to get serious and grow up. 2012 is going to be a year of reckoning for her.
Lindsay Lohan was born on 2nd July 1986 in New York at 03.41am . She is a Sun Sign Cancer with with her Moon in the sign of Taurus and has a typically scatty Gemini Ascendant. Cancerians more than any other sign are attached to their families and feel the pain if their families have problems. With Saturn retrograde, it is safe to say that Lohan never received the love she needed from her father. Her Sun is afflicted by an opposition to Neptune and receives a trine from Pluto. If I were to take a guess, I would say that he had an alcohol problem and may have got rather controlling and or/violent with it. It is known that her parents had a turbulent relationship, separating when she was 3, reuniting then finally filing for divorce. It sounds like an unhappy childhood. Saturn is in Sagittarius which suggests a disrupted education, she was taken out of schooling at the age of 11 and indeed we find Capricorn, Saturn’s sign on the cusp of the 9th house of education and Mercury in it’s own home of the 3rd house of early schooling is hit by a square to Pluto and a focused quindecile from Mars. At Junior school, she may well have been a bit of a trouble-maker.
As I mentioned earlier Lindsay’s Sun is opposite Neptune, a tricky placement. Lindsay will be impressionable, often lost in her own dreams, yet also creative, Neptune has connections with film and TV. People with Neptune opposite the Sun often lose their way in life and try to escape from the troubles and hurt in their lives by resorting to drink and drugs. Now this Sun sits in the 2nd house of self worth, and that self-worth is continually disintegrated by the Neptune opposition. Neptune sits in the 7th giving her an over idealistic view of any prospective partner. It is like no one will ever come up to her vision of a dream guy, and the turmoil of her private life is multiplied by Uranus also in the 7th house. Uranus is trine to Venus and this will give her a wild, rebellious streak and she will be attracted to similar type men – not good for a steady relationship. Any romance will start with an electric attraction, but the novelty will soon wear off and then reality (and disappointment) sets in. In truth she suffers (Neptune) for her relationships.
Lindsay’s Taurus Moon should make her emotionally quite stable, but it receives a square from Venus which complicated the emotional life, she won’t really know what she needs from the partner or the relationship. Mars squares the Moon so any emotional problems will be sorted out in a no-nonsense sort of way. All this will make her difficult to live with which compounds the emotional security need of the Cancer Sun. I believe it is almost like a vicious circle working inside her. Lindsay would have been affected by the problems in her family life which she carries around with her as baggage. Because of this, she will need the emotional support of a stable relationship for the Taurus Moon, but doesn’t really trust any partners fully because she doesn’t know what she wants from any relationship (square Venus) and is unrealistic in her expectations (Jupiter in Pisces and Neptune in 7th), and whatever problems there are will be whipped up into a frenzy by the Moon trine Mars.
If I were her astrologer, I would want her to get away from the turmoil that is Los Angeles and New York and get some peace, quiet and solitude, possibly in the countryside way away from the bright lights of the city and temptation. The Taurus Moon needs this sometimes and it is ironic that some time in jail or serious rehabilitation may just be good for her. Emotionally with the Moon in the 12th, having time to reflect is just what the doctor would order, and should she have kind and helpful people around her she may be able to work out her problems. In a way as an astrologer, I feel sorry for her. It wasn’t her fault to be born with such a disparate horoscope and to have such a disrupted childhood.
The problem is that Lindsay is addicted to the high life, with both Mercury and Venus in showy Leo. Mercury in Leo will give her confidence in speaking and performing and Venus in Leo is the most glamorous position for Venus to be, loving to show off and be the centre of attention. Venus is quindecile to her Aquarian Midheaven. An unusual, rebellious public life connected with show business was always in the stars for her. Uranus is square Jupiter in Neptune, she will be wildly optimistic and her head will forever be in the clouds and an 8th house Mars sextile to Jupiter shows that she is very open about and active about her sexual life and “behind the scenes” activities. Combined with the can’t sit still Gemini Ascendant she is a whirr of energy going off in all directions. Neptune opposite the Sun as I hinted earlier, it points to an unrealistic view of life in general.
With Saturn and Pluto in the 6th house, she can go two ways. She can compromise her well-being, as she has been doing and these two planets will destroy her health completely, or she can get her self sorted out and get down to what she is capable of, and that is working hard. This girl, if she puts her mind to it, can be a real workaholic, if she has some direction in which to focus that Saturn and Pluto energy.
The current synopsis of the planets shows the transiting South Nodes now bang on her Ascendant. Right now she will feel in a state of helplessness, as if other people are ruling her life, and this is true as she stays precariously on probation. The recent nude Playboy shoot ties in with transiting Mars trine her 8th house Mars.
The Solar Arc progressions show that Lindsay is going to learn some hard truths in the months ahead. On the transits Pluto is still opposite Lindsay’s Cancer Sun from Capricorn, you can almost see the picture suggested from the signs alone, Capricorn as the voice of authority, Sun in Cancer is trapped by this Pluto opposition showing confinement of some sort. As Pluto closes in on that Cancer Sun towards the end of 2012, we will see if she does accept Pluto’s will for her to change or not. This is in effect trial by Pluto for her in the coming year. As with Amy Winehouse who tragically I predicted could succumb to planetary pressure, Lindsay will face down the barrel of the gun in 2012. By Solar Arc, her SA Sun is square to natal Pluto, so very much echoing the transiting picture at now is the time to change for her. Her SA Sun is also trine to natal Saturn and this shows a chink of light, and is very constructive and hints that she may just be maturing a bit. After a turbulent 2012, for her sake, let’s hope so…
