Max von Sydow – an uber-determined Aries

Max Von Sydow, the renowned Swedish-French actor has died at 90, having had a sterling career – bookended by 11 Ingmar Bergman movies including The Seventh Seal and latterly playing the Three Eyed Raven in Game of Thrones for which he received an Emmy nomination.

Born 10 April 1929 in Lund Sweden, he was a Sun (maybe Moon) in Aries with Mercury Uranus also in Aries, all squaring onto Mars Pluto in Cancer, with Uranus square Saturn in Capricorn. It’s a hard, determined, self-sufficient and go-getting chart. He wouldn’t let much stand in his way. His Sun and probably Moon were trine filmic Neptune which was also trine his Saturn. A fairly formidable personality – with Jupiter and Venus in indulgent Taurus.

His relationship with Bergman, 14 July 1918, Sweden, would be high-octane with Bergman’s Cancer Sun and Jupiter Pluto in Cancer picking up Bergman’s Mars Pluto. But their relationship chart had a confidently expansive and enthusiastic composite Sun Jupiter Mercury conjunction which would help to foster mutual support.

  1. I wonder which house his Mercury/Uranus would be? Equal house, obviously 5th house with Sun, and that would be a good match for an actor. Interesting thing about Max von Sydow is that as far as I remember he was the first Swedish male actor to have some Hollywood success. Even if his characters, as those of Greta Garbo and Ingrid Bergman before him, were often somehow “ethnic” to justify the accent, this could be indication of linguistic capacities far above average for his time.

  2. Using 12 events STARKMAN rectified Sydow’s chart giving a birth time of 10:18:36 PM with Asc 23Scorpio57 and Moon at 4Taurus11.
    The composite chart with Bergman has a Sun-Venus-Jupiter conjunction.
