Tom Cruise – talent and popularity trump odd beliefs

Tom Cruise is still hitting the hot spot at sixty with yet another box office blitz in Top Gun: Maverick which is his highest-grossing movie yet. He has been going strong since his breakthrough in the 1980s with the original Top Gun, and The Color of Money, Rain Man, Born on the Fourth of July and then in the 1990s he starred in A Few Good Men, The Firm, Interview with the Vampire and Jerry Maguire. Since then, he has largely starred in science fiction and action films – six of the hugely successful Mission: Impossible films amongst others. All of this despite his involvement with the scandal-ridden Scientology Church which has had no impact on his popularity.

  Born 3 July 1962 New York, without birth time, he is a Sun Cancer in a creative, self-protective Water Grand Trine to Neptune trine Jupiter opposition Pluto – making influential and super-confident Pluto his driving planet. His filmic (and evasive) Neptune is also in an imaginative though can-be-neurotic square to Saturn in Aquarius opposition a ‘leadership’ North Node in Leo.  He’s well designed for the fantasy business. And his action-man tendencies come from a heavyweight Mars in Taurus in an adventurous and adrenaline-junkie square to Uranus. At the moment his Solar Arc Jupiter is opposition his Neptune giving his movie ambitions a tremendous boost.

 2024 may be less buoyant with tr Saturn in Pisces undercutting his Jupiter opposition Pluto; and 2025/26 will be slow going with his Solar Arc Saturn square his Sun.

 His best buddy David Miscavige, who took on the mantle from Ron Hubbard to run the scientology business has seemingly disappeared out of sight as lawyers have been trying for four months to serve a federal trafficking suit brought by former members but have failed to locate him. Three ex-Scientologists refer to repeated sexual assault of children by senior Scientology officials, and allege human trafficking, forced labor, and other forms of child abuse.

  Miscavige, 30 April 1960 Brogan, OR, is a Sun Taurus with an Earth Grand Trine of Sun trine Pluto trine Jupiter formed into a Kite by Sun opposition Neptune  – materialistic, a good businessman, super-confident with Neptune in Scorpio as a driving planet which covers the spectrum from spirituality to outright cons. He also has a Yod onto wayward, maverick Uranus which will be rattled up mid this March onwards with tr Uranus square his Uranus and more so by 2025/26, potentially pushing his life onto a different track.

  He’ll face some jeopardy from this June; though his greatest trials will come in 2024 to 2026 with his Solar Arc Uranus square his Saturn and his Solar Arc Saturn conjunct his Mars which will be a considerable setback.

  It’s a highly controlling and possessive relationship with Cruise with the relationship chart having a composite Sun square Pluto though the Sun is also trine Jupiter so reassurance and morale-boosts are included. But there is also an irritable, resentful composite Mars square Saturn which usually occurs in a one sided relationship where one partner has to suppress their identity to make it work. That has been under strain over the past two years and more so through 2023/24 with tr Pluto in hard aspect. Be interesting to see if any cracks show.

    • Wow! That’s a pretty significant over generalisation, IMO. Anything evidential to substantiate the statement? And, in case I may be considered defensive… I have a grand cross, instead of grand water trine…

      My very limited knowledge and experience has shown, on a personal level, very lucky individuals – financially and with near super-human, physical and mental recuperative powers…

      Perhaps the configuration works in a multitude of scenarios and possibilities!?

  1. Happy New Year to you all and thank you for your very informed comments.
    I am distressed to hear the name of Aleister Crowley mentioned, a truly malevolent influence if ever there was one.

  2. A lot of people made fun of Cruise for jumping up and down on Oprah’s couch while talking about his now-ex Katie Holmes. Later, knowing his astrology, I saw it as him “doing his north node.” Actually a good moment for him. I was born several months after he was and was myself in and out of (Bible-based) cults till a couple years after my first Saturn return. Saturn in Aquarius conjunct South Node says it’s a familiar pattern for him. Too bad he can’t seem to find his way out of Scientology. He’s probably sacrificed a lot emotionally in order to stay loyal to “the church.”

  3. Thanks Marjorie. What a fascinating mix this is, especially when you consider how much influence the Scientology Church seems to have had in Hollywood over the years. There are so many famous members, and former members.

    The founder of this movement, L Ron Hubbard, 13th March, 1911, also has a Grand Trine in Water like Tom Cruise – Sun 21 Pisces, Mercury 14 Pisces, Neptune 18 Cancer, Jupiter 14 Scorpio, S Node 12 Scorpio. Hubbard also had a Mars-Uranus connection – in his chart Mars is in Capricorn, conjunct Uranus.

    Hubbard’s own story is extraordinary. It connects with eccentric rocket scientist Jack Parsons (Jet Propulsion Labs), and all the way back to their shared interest in the work of Aleister Crowley – Moon Pisces, trine Mercury and Jupiter in Scorpio. Parsons also had Moon Pisces, and a Grand Trine in Water – Mercury/Mars in Scorpio, trine Saturn/Pluto in Cancer, trine NN Pisces…..There’s a Mercury/Mars square Uranus too.

    Always amazing to see how linking patterns and themes endure and reappear through long stretches of time.
