Avengers: Infinity War, Marvel’s extravaganza pulling together the Iron Man, Hulk, Thor et al in a merry band to save the world has been getting five star reviews as it opens – “an utterly confident comic-book movie mash-up” and “bedazzling fun”.
It started Principal Photography three days after Trump’s Inauguration so has the same adventurous and pushily confident Uranus opposition Jupiter square Pluto; plus the sticky Saturn square Mars Venus. Interesting to see how it pans out.
Robert Downey Jnr leads the starry cast as he reprises the role of Iron Man, which has hauled in billions for Marvel in several outings. It has also shot him way up the rankings of highest-grossing actors.
Born 4 April 1965 1.10pm Manhattan, NY, into an acting family with a drug addict father, he hit the heights early in his career but crashed and burned due to addiction problems, ending him up in prison at one point. His second marriage to a film executive helped pull him round and he’s been drug free for 15 years.
He has a philosophical and outspoken 9th house Sun, Venus and Mercury in Aries on the focal point of a Yod to Neptune sextile a volatile collection of Pluto Uranus (Mars) in Virgo. His Mars Uranus Pluto oppose Saturn and square a Gemini North Node. He’ll be volatile, high-wire, stressed unless he has a clear focus, prone to depression. An indulgent Moon Jupiter in Taurus in his 10th opposition Neptune would attract him to drugs and his emotional responses would need damping down with his Moon trine Pluto Uranus Mars. But Jupiter in the 10th generally denotes success and respect the older he gets.
He’s been through a challenging few years with the tr Uranus square tr Pluto hitting on his Aries planets; and tr Neptune opposition his Virgo ones so he’s done well keeping his head down and working flat out.
He’s almost clear of recent pressured influences and has a long way ahead career-wise with an especial success come 2021/2022 when tr Pluto trines his Jupiter.
