Christina Ricci :: Born 12 Feb 1980 :: Hathor
Hathor women have the gift of shape-shifting – reinventing themselves for fresh inspiration. And there is no better example of this energy manifesting itself than with Christina Ricci – she has, after all, been quoted as saying “I certainly hope I’m not still answering child-star questions by the time I reach menopause.”
Breaking free from the danger of being typecast as a child-star (The Addams Family and Casper), Christina ditched her cutie doll image and successfully reinvented herself into a cutting-edge vixen in risqué roles. Subsequently she has attracted new fan bases with each shape-shift.
Her image, attitude and philosophy gets a regular makeover, but with Hathor guiding her natural instincts, she will continue doing so with aplomb.
Kristin Davis :: Born 24 Feb 1965 :: Oshun
Goddess of universal love and sensuality, Oshun women are generous with their time for themselves during a tidal “ebb”, and for others during a “flow”. We all saw this trait in action through Kristin’s character Charlotte (Sex And The City), but how true does the Oshun character ring in real life?
Kristin is a unique balance of strength and innocence – she succumbed to alcoholism before finding the strength to deal with the demands of Hollywood and facing it (sober) head-on.
She is at once innocent, batting her eyelashes and giving an enigmatic smile in the face of sauciness; and sexy, comfortable in her own skin with a ‘less is more’ approach to make up thereby ‘keeping it real’.
Sarah Jessica Parker :: Athena
Born leaders, powerful and zesty, Athena girls are feisty and resourceful. But sometimes they are too much so and could do with directing their courage towards asking for help.
Sarah Jessica Parker is the classic Athena archetype – strong, independent and a warrior princess. The downside to this strength is she’d feel ashamed to ask for help in case it made her appear weak.
No-one is going to think any less of her if she asked for time out to look after herself for a while. In fact, she’d be doing herself a favour if she asked someone else to do it for her! After all, even Athena couldn’t protect Athens 24/7 – sometimes warrior princesses need to rest their sword too!
Michelle Pfeiffer :: Born 29 April 1958 :: Juno
Juno women seek stable relationships, material security and an enriched home life. And as though it weren’t enough that she has a rewarding private life with husband David E Kelley and their adopted children, Michelle Pfeiffer has worked hard to ensure that she is an entrenched part of our lives as a household name as well.
Thanks to her Juno grounding, Michelle was able to maintain her dignity when rumours surfaced of her husband having a fling with Ally McBeal’s Calista Flockhart.
Rather than relying on others for her happiness, Michelle drew on her birth patroness’ energy to strengthen the relationship from within, thereby ensuring a strong family unit.
Nicole Kidman :: Born 20 June 1967 :: Persephone
Vital and intelligent, innocent and fickle, Persephone gals have an amazing capacity for self-empowerment. They can make the most of a rotten situation and turn it around to their benefit.
This is certainly the case with Nicole who grew up lanky and awkward with pale skin prone to freckling under the fierce Australian sun. She escaped her insecurities through drama and the arts, where involvement with Jane Campion led her to understand acting was her future.
Just as Persephone married the all-powerful Hades to ease her way, Nicole married Hollywood’s “king”, Tom Cruise, despite a natural aversion to public scrutiny. She adopts an ice-queen facade to mask her panic attacks, which she especially suffers on the red carpet. This is where Persephone really cuts loose and lets her presence known by dancing wildly in her Solar Plexus, the chakra that Nicole needs to nurture the most.
Kylie Minogue :: Born 28 May 1968 :: Persephone
Another Persephone gal, Kylie Minogue was the teen-actor, singing budgie and poppet princess before discovering her “dark side” and emerging as a sensual pint-sized sex symbol.
Kylie adores exploring her Persephone-inspired dark side and has cavorted with high profile bad boys such as INXS front man, the late Michael Hutchence, and British lady-killer Robbie Williams. She scored a backlash from conservative Australian politicians for participating in a murder ballad with Nick Cave, and is the pin-up princess of the late-night club scene.
But by day, Kylie emerges squeaky-clean and maiden-like thanks to her birth patroness. Vixen with “come get me” eyes in the Underworld, girl-next-door by day in the world of the living, Kylie is most definitely a Persephone gal through and through.
Liv Tyler :: Born 1 July 1977 :: Diana
Powerful and protective, Diana rules over nature, fertility, children and providence. Hippy-raised Liv is the manifestation of Diana’s energy with her ethereal looks and nature-loving, egalitarian approach to life.
She is well known for her off-beat roles that win international acclaim, a laid-back character and high-profile boyfriends… these attributes all stem from a deeply loyal and loving relationship with her celebrity parents.
From her first day at school as a chubby kid with braces to the inevitable rise to fame, Liv remains level-headed and grounded in the face her celebrity. Even her occasional foray into a alternative fashion is further proof of her Diana-inspired conviction to ‘keep it real’.
Anna Paquin :: Born 24 July 1982 :: Pele
Full of passionate energy, Pele gals love being the centre of attention and the life of the party – when they come out of dormancy, that is.
Anna Paquin was a 10-year-old schoolgirl when her Oscar- winning role in The Piano catapulted her to fame. That she hides her Oscar in her closet out of consideration to others is an indication of the self-control and inner power that lies beneath a calm surface.
She might wear conservative clothing to industry functions, but occasionally she reveals a glimpse of a fiery nature – at the Drama Desk Awards last year her Pele side came to the fore when she unleashed her feminine power in a hiked-hem provocative dress. Then we delighted in her full power to gushing to fruition as Sookie Stackhouse in the hit TV series, True Blood!
Cameron Diaz :: Born 30 August 1972 :: Hestia
Hestia girls are creatures of habit and organisation, purity, sincerity, sanctity and safety. One only needs to look at the tight and private relationship she has with toy-boy Justin Timberlake to know that Cameron values honesty and integrity highly in relationships.
According to industry insiders, the sweet and innocent Cameron that you see on screen is a glimpse of the real-life girl that is ruled by Hestia.
She was a sex-bomb in her early movies, but is now better known for her sweet girl-next-door roles that have become her signature.
As Cameron’s inner Hestia values a fruitful home life above all, don’t be surprised to hear news of her stepping across the threshold with her man in tow…
Susan Sarandon :: Born 4 October 1946 :: Venus
Venus women have a sense of style and appreciation for acts of love, pleasure and romance. In this respect, Susan Sarandon leads the way in redefining the image of ‘dignified Hollywood woman’.
In true Venus style, Susan can balance her love for the good things in life with her concern that others get the chance to experience it too – ie, if everyone is happy the Venus gal is happy too. Her active support for issues that affect her fellow Americans (even leading to her arrest some cases) and her role as Goodwill Ambassador for UNICEF is proof of this.
Some of Susan’s film role choices reflect her Venus core – sexy groupie, seductress, Rocky Horror tart, witch, bloodsucker, nun, fun seeker and suicidal rebel… I can’t wait to see the next decadent “wild side” this Venus gal chooses to explore.
Demi Moore :: Born 11 November 1962 :: Bast
Courageous, strong and fearless in the face of vermin, Bast girls show an abiding patience in seeking vengeance for wrong doings. By far this attribute is evident in her micro-bikini clad role in Charlie’s Angels – who’d want to be at the other end of one of her weapons of vengeance?!
You don’t need to be a villain to feel the sting of Demi’s wrath. When critics questioned her nudity in films, they felt her snakes bite in her comment; “There’s this idea that if you take your clothes off, somehow you must have loose morals. There’s still a negative attitude in our society towards women who use a strength that’s inherent – their femininity – in any way that might be considered seductive.”
So watch out 😉 While she is fiercely loyal to her children and lovers, she’ll be quick to show her claws if you step out of line!
Lucy Liu :: Born 2 December 1968 :: Rhiannon
Welsh goddess of fertility and rebirth, transformation, wisdom, and magic, Rhiannon girls seek adventure and travel. Lucy cannot be a better role model for Rhiannon gals. In her pursuit of assertive and feisty roles where she can really get her teeth into unleashing her inner adventurer, Lucy proves that Rhiannon’s energy is raging within.
Patroness of voice, Rhiannon guided Lucy through her difficult high school years where she suffered an identity crisis thanks to her English and Mandarin speaking background. She taught Lucy to ask for what she really wanted, and today we see where this got her – she has risen above the stereo-typed Asian roles and is respected by Hollywood as a serious actress worth her weight in lapis lazuli, cats-eye and exotic Revlon products.
Diane Keaton :: Born 5 January 1946 :: Demeter
Just like their patroness who scoured the earth and Under World for her kidnapped daughter Persephone, Demeter gals stop at nothing to achieve their goals.
Champion of causes, Diane gained attention in her first major stage role (in the rock musical Hair) by not stripping off.
Diane’s fashion inclination towards unisex clothes tells the world she is ready for action and she is going to do it her way.
This Demeter attitude extends to her family situation also – she has never married but has two children, Dexter and Duke.
