Tearing the scab off a bad marriage to Amber Heard, Johnny Depp went into graphic and sordid detail on the first day of his libel suit against The Sun newspaper, who had labelled him a ‘wife beater’ and branded those accusations ‘sick and completely untrue’. He called his former wife a ‘calculating, narcissistic sociopath’ who married him to further her career, denies ever hitting her and his defence listed a string of incidents in which she had allegedly attacked him throughout their marriage.
He was born 9 June 1963 8.44am Owensboro, KY and she 22 April 1986 in Texas. Both have their Venus in late Taurus conjunct the destructive Fixed star Algol which kinda fits. He’s a Sun Gemini square Pluto (Mars Uranus) in Virgo so fairly volatile. His Capricorn Moon is in the line of fire of this week’s Capricorn Lunar Eclipse shaking up his domestic life and history.
She is a stubborn, controlling Taurus Sun opposition Pluto so not one to give way easily. That Sun Pluto is trine/sextile an ambitious Mars Neptune in Capricorn, so she’ll be fiery and like attracting attention. The Lunar Eclipse this week is conjunct her Mars which her Solar Arc Saturn is also conjunct – so quite a car crash.
Her Pluto is closely conjunct his IC making her want to control his domestic life; and her Saturn in Sagittarius squares his Pluto, Mars, Uranus so it was hardly an ideal match. Plus her Mars is conjunct his Moon which would make for an argumentative interface.
Their relationship chart has an affectionate composite Sun Venus but there’s also a volcanic composite Mercury opposition Uranus and Mars and a power-struggling Jupiter opposition Pluto.
The wedding took place in 2015 with a neurotic/paranoid Saturn square Neptune in place as well as a turbulent Uranus square Pluto.
He’s not looking too chipper ahead with an undermining tr Neptune square his Gemini Sun from this October to early 2021, with hitches and glitches after middle of this month through this autumn from tr Saturn to various midpoints; with aggravations and frustrations in 2021 though he’ll be making a confident push all the same.
She’s equally looking agitated at the moment, in a disruptive phase with tr Uranus opposition her Pluto till early 2021; and then facing a string of losses through 2021/22.
Neither will emerge from this feeling better. He may have felt it essential if he had been lied about but it’s all an unholy mess.
