Glowing reviews have greeted the movie Green Book, a comedy-drama about a tour of the Deep South in the 1960s by African-American classical pianist Don Shirley (Mahershala Ali) who ropes in Tony Vallelonga (Viggo Mortensen), a white Italian-American bouncer as driver and security. Box office is slowish but talk of possible Oscars will probably lift it.
Viggo Mortensen, 20 October 1958, New York, – Lord of the Rings, Captain Fantastic – is a Sun Libra conjunct Neptune in Scorpio and sextile Saturn in Sagittarius; with a tough-minded Mars in Gemini square Pluto. He has some minor lift around the Oscars but also a setback, so unlikely to be a major winner.
Mahershala Ali, 16 February 1974, Oakland, CA, – Hunger Games, Remy Danton in House of Cards, Moonlight – has a very Airy chart with a Sun Jupiter in Aquarius trine Uranus trine Saturn, formed into a Kite by Saturn opposition Node and maybe Moon in Sagittarius – talented and communicative. He doesn’t look too enthusiastic around the Oscars.
Director Peter Farrelly, 17 December 1956, PA, is a Sun Sagittarius opposition a Gemini Moon with a disciplined, determined and innovative Saturn trine Mars, square Pluto and trine Uranus.
The filming must have been fun with all that Air and Fire.
Farrelly is marginally disappointed and marginally cheered up at the Oscars so maybe gets some nominations or wins in other categories.
