Cate Blanchett & Rooney Mara – talented rivals

Cate Blanchett, the multi-award winning Australian/American actress has a talent for picking (and being picked for) highly successful movies. Her latest of ‘Carol’, based on a Patricia Highsmith novel, about two women falling in love, is certainly picking up the publicity and nominations for the Golden Globes on 10th January.

Cate Blanchett, 14 May 1969 (6.40am rectified) Melbourne, AU, is a Sun Taurus opposition Neptune, and trine Jupiter Pluto in Virgo and Uranus at 0 Libra. So she’s definitely suited to the movie business and has confidence to spare. She can be outspoken and quite a campaigner with Mercury in Gemini opposition Mars in Sagittarius.

She could hit it lucky at the Globes with tr Jupiter just about to reverse back over the conjunction to her Pluto (only one degree away) and trine her Sun. Though less so at the Oscars when tr Saturn is exactly conjunct her Mars.

Rooney Mara,17 April 1985 New York, best known for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, who plays opposite Blanchett in ‘Carol’, also has awards and nominations under her belt. She won Best Actress at Cannes this year and is also up for a Golden Globe.

She’s a late Sun Aries opposition Pluto in Scorpio; with a hard-edged Mars in Taurus opposition Saturn in Scorpio. She does have tr Pluto conjunct her Jupiter/Uranus midpoint over the Globes and tr Jupiter trine her Mars, both of which look lucky. Those influences will have moved on by the time of the Oscars.

It wouldn’t have been the easiest working relationship between the two with Blanchett’s Sun opposition Neptune clashing with Mara’s Mars opposition Saturn.
