Alec Baldwin – parodying a mirror image of himself



Alec Baldwin’s career has had a reboot thanks to Donald Trump, with his satirical take offs on Saturday Night Live proving immensely popular. Though observers say it’s because Baldwin, famously hot-headed, ego-centric and thin-skinned, recognises himself in his comedy portrayal.

His memoir just out paints a picture of a talent mis-spent in drug and drink addiction, fighting with studio bosses and an ugly divorce from Kim Basinger and damaging custody disputes over their daughter.

Baldwin was born 3 April 1958 in New York, and is an upfront Sun Aries perhaps opposition a Libra Moon, trine Uranus in Leo and sextile Mars in Aquarius. His Uranus opposition Mars hits on Trump’s Pluto; his Pluto is conjunct Trump’s Asc and Mars; and Baldwin’s Saturn in Sagittarius is conjunct Trump’s Moon and opposition his Sun, so no surprises that the president regards him with extreme dislike and as a damaging influence on his image.

Their relationship chart has a deep-hatred composite Sun opposition Mars square Pluto, which is being challenged till late 2018 by Pluto transits.

What is intriguing is that Baldwin’s tempestuous affair and failed marriage with Kim Basinger, 8 Dec 1953 11.04am Athens, GA, also mirrors Trump, in that she was born only two weeks after Stephen Bannon. She has the same volatile Mars Neptune in Libra on the focal point of a T square to Uranus opposition North Node; and a Sagittarius Sun – all like Bannon. So clearly those of a volcanic temperament are attracted to similar – for as long as it lasts.

He and Basinger had a daughter, Ireland, over whom there was a protracted and toxic custody battle. She was born 23 Oct 1995 1.52pm Los Angeles, and has a 9th house New Moon in Libra; an ambitious and controlling Pluto Mars in the 10th; and her New Moon squares Uranus Neptune in Capricorn. So neither parent come across as exactly good news. Father is a chaotic and unpredictable Uranus Neptune; and her Mars Pluto in the 10th echo Natalie Wood with her famously pushy mother who also had the same. At present Ireland is a model with some acting experience. With her 9th house emphasis, she’ll probably live abroad at some point.

Baldwin is due for more success into 2018 as his Solar Arc Pluto is conjunct his Jupiter.
