Astrologer Shelley Ackerman is sending an email to friends entitled “In Vino Veritas.” In it, she says Mel Gibson’s astrological chart (which she discussed in The National Council for Geocosmic Research newsletter two and a half years ago when “Passion of the Christ” was released) is helpful now in understanding Gibson’s recent arrest and damning anti-Semitic rants. She feels she knows him too well.
Gibson was born on Jan 3, 1956 (reportedly at 4:45 PM in Peekskill, N.Y.), and is a Capricorn with Cancer rising and the Moon at 0 degrees of Libra. His willful Mars/Saturn conjunction in Scorpio (a sign famous for its dark-side, intensity, and control-issues) in the creative and “kingly” 5th house of his horoscope-contributes to the messianic overtones in his chart.
What triggered this arrest and outburst just now? Shelley says transiting Saturn opposite Mel’s Venus in Aquarius (Saturn makes one accountable) and transiting Pluto is on his progressed Mars at 26 Sagittarius (at the Galactic Center) can be an explosive mix. The sign of Capricorn (Gibson’s sun) is known for its many spiritual tests that brings natives of the sign to their knees (Capricorn rules the knees), humbly asking for forgiveness.
Is Gibson’s career, as he himself said, “truly “f**ked”?
