Actor James Caan, the memorable Godfather star who had a steady 60 year Hollywood career with several award nominations has died at 82.
He was born on 26 March 1940 at 10.31pm (astrotheme) New York, son of a Bronx butcher from a Jewish-German immigrant family; and met the Godfather director Francis Ford Coppola while at university. He started in off Broadway plays, graduated to television, performed in a string of reputable but not successful movies, and had his big break as the short-tempered Sonny Corleone when he had just turned 30.
As with so many actors his chart fitted his on-screen persona He was a pro-active Sun Aries in a determined trine to Pluto, with his Pluto square Saturn and sextile Mars. His bull-headed Mars in Taurus conjunct Algol was opposition a Scorpio Moon; with his Mars conjunct Venus Uranus as well. A heavyweight temperament and then some.
His Mars on his Descendant opposition Moon and his Sun/Moon midpoint square Saturn may explain his four marriages.
What would help was a creative Neptune in his 10th trine his Mars, Venus, Uranus giving him an outlet for all that steam-roller energy along with a confident Jupiter in his performing 5th house.
