I come to this conclusion after doing astrology charts for ten years and picking the brains of my lab rats(said with total respect and including myself as the CHIEF lab rat). If anyone wants to learn astrology, one must do charts and get to know the native behind the chart. The astrologer will begin to see PATTERNS. These patterns cannot be learned in books. One must see them again and again to form conclusions. These conclusions are very valuable.
This brings me to Johnny Depp who is no different from any of us other than being famous(also gorgeous, rich and talented). Due to this, we are interested in him and he can become a life lesson. He is the same as you and me. He is just in the public spotlight and we hide behind our closed doors.
The Sun shows the father and the Moon shows the mother. His father brought him much pain as seen in the Chiron square the Sun.The square tells us that this relationship could never really be resolved. There is also, a Sun/Jupiter aspect which shows there were some good things in Depp’s relationship with his father. Depp says his father was a Southern gentleman and this aspect of his father seems to be something Depp deeply admired.
His relationship with his mother is represented by the Moon. The Moon is the feminine side of each person, the relationship with his mother and the relationships with women, in general. To me, if you want to know a person, look at his Moon. If you want to have a serious relationship with him, make sure you have compatible moons!
So, with Johnny, we have many positive aspects to the Moon and some negative ones. However, I need to really look at my asteroids because I am sure I will find something there. As of now, I will talk about the positive relationships.
He has one of my all time favorite asteroids in the chart of a man. It is Ceres. Ceres is maternal love. Depp has Moon trine Ceres. This shows in his nature, which seems to be very loving. To me, if a man has power aspect, such as Mars conjunct Pluto, as Depp does, as well as Ceres, he is super sexy. Ceres trine the Moon tells us that his mother did give him unconditional love.
Depp has Moon trine Pluto which is a deep and close relationship with his mother. Also, he is a very deep and perceptive person. This aspect is all the good of the Scorpio Moon and none of the bad.
Neptune sextiles the Moon. This shows a wonderful imagination and artistic gifts. It also shows that his mother has a gentle side and so does he.
Juno Trines the Moon so his mother was loyal and so is he.
Depp has Moon square Jupiter. This shows that his mother may have thwarted his sense of adventure. She may have gotten in the way of his opportunities in some way. He saw her as a force that may have made him have bad luck or “curse” him in some way.
He has the asteroid Grieve conjunct his Moon. His mother would cause him grief, as would other women in his life. We can see this with Amber, of course. His own emotions would cause him grief as well. We can see this with his addiction. He used it to cover pain!
I have looked at many of my asteroids but not all. I have found some amazing things in his chart such as both Bacchus(wild orgies),Pan( a bisexual who lived a wild life) and Moira(fated to be in the spotlight) conjunct his MC, so I am going to do another article. As of now, all I see about his mother was that she caused him grief and women will do the same. This surprises me, really. However, as I do more asteroids, I may see more and I will come back and amend the article. I hope this is not too confusing. I just some amazing asteroids in other parts of his chart and want to talk about them.
