Robert de Niro defending himself over allegations he was verbally abusive to a former aide rather proved her point when he shouted at her across the courtroom as his temper got the better of him.
Born 17 August 1943 3am New York, he has a robust chart, essential for a mammothly successful career as one of the most influential actors of his generation, known for his collaborations with Martin Scorsese. But it almost certainly does not make him an easy-going, light-and-peace personality.
He has a Leo Sun conjunct North Node square a heavyweight Mars in Taurus, the latter tending to have a slow fuse but can be volcanic when it blows. He also has a super-confident Jupiter Pluto in Leo on the focal point of a mini Grand Trine of Uranus to Neptune giving him the self-assurance and determination to get what he wants. Sitting side by side with all that bountiful self-belief is a super-sensitive Pisces Moon opposition Mercury Venus and widely square Saturn. And admittedly Leo has a vulnerable underside behind all the strutting bravado which can get prickly when criticised.
In addition his Mars sits on his Moon/Pluto midpoint which will make him irritable, excitable and prone to outbursts.
I make no comments about the case itself since it is a swamp of claims and counter claims. The assistant wants $12m in damages for emotional distress and reputational harm while he sued her previously alleging she stole from him.
His Sun square Mars is being seriously rattled by tr Uranus square his Sun next year which will bring a mood of explosive insecurity. And uncertainty and worry will come before then from tr Neptune square his Saturn just after the middle of this month till late December. His Solar Arc Mars is also inconjunct his Moon exactly now which won’t calm his prickly defensiveness.
Who would be a celebrity? The price of fame is very high.
