Anouk Aimee – a New Wave icon ++ Albert Finney

French actress Anouk Aimee, best known for the European cinema classics La Dolce Vita with Mastroianni, Fellini’s and a Un homme et une femme (A Man and a Woman) with Jean-Louis Trintignant, has died at 92.

 She was nominated for an Oscar and known for “her enigmatic beauty”. “Her look combined the playful seductiveness of Brigitte Bardot, the charming melancholy of Audrey Hepburn and the aloofness of Marlene Dietrich.” In reality she struggled with fame and her lack of ambition held back her career.

 Born 27 April 1932 at 12 noon (birth certificate), Paris, France, with actor parents, she had a 10th house Taurus Sun square Moon Saturn in Aquarius in her 6th house and square Jupiter in Leo on her Ascendant. She also had a difficult Mars Uranus in Aries square Pluto in her 12th, perhaps in part a legacy of her Jewish family who had to change their names to avoid problems.

 She was much married and divorced – four times, the last with UK actor Albert Finney – and had multiple affairs with amongst others Mastroianni, Omar Sharif and Ryan O’Neal.  Latterly she lived alone in Paris with ten cats.

  She would be volatile with Mars Uranus and much affected by the traumas of her youth; with a tendency towards’ mood swings from a strong Jupiter and an equally strong Saturn.  In her day she was more than memorable.

Add On: Albert Finney, 9 May 1936, no birth time, UK, had a notable film career in Saturday Night and Sunday Morning, Tom Jones, Annie, The Dresser, Miller’s Crossing, Erin Brockovich and the James Bond movie Skyfall. But he was an odd choice for Anouk Aimee having four planets in Taurus including his Sun, Mars, Uranus and Venus – which would be a stubborn combo with her Taurus Sun and Aquarius Moon Saturn. His upbeat Moon Jupiter in Sagittarius did fall in her sociable 5th house so he would lift her spirits but his Saturn in her 8th does not suggest intimate bliss. They were together for eight years from 1970 to 1978 and I would imagine that tr Uranus moving into Scorpio in 1975 would be what started it unravelling in a serious way.

  Her 8th house Pisces North Node was tied into the liaison since tr Pluto was conjunct her South Node when she married him and she was on her Half Nodal Return when they split.

 Taurus are an extremely tactile and indulgent sign since there may have been a sexual buzz, stronger than usual, about the attraction which turned out to be a mistake.

  1. That Pluto Uranus square is so tight and with Mars in there she must have been on a hair trigger. I’ve known many born under that aspect and much as I dislike the overuse of the word, it does tend towards narcissim and an obsession with control, but given the prescence of Mars it could easily refer to the men in her life.
    At the age of 12 I met Albert Finney, dressed all in black leather and affectation. As I shook his hand he grabbed mine and rubbed his finger suggestively up and down my palm. He was still very much married to her at the time, glad she got out.

    And Moon and Saturn in Aquarius conjunct Ceres in Capricorn doesnt indicate warm affectionate mothering, wether recieving or giving.

    • I was in school uniform too eww.. There was no one to tell in those days, but writing it now on reflection Im pretty angry about it 🙁
