Shock news that confirmed bachelor George Clooney, dubbed “sexiest man alive” twice by People Magazine, is engaged to Amal Alamuddin, has likely caused dismay amongst his legions of fans.
George Clooney and Amal Alamuddin
Not much is known about his fiancé Amal, except that she is extremely successful and beautiful. She is also a highflying British human rights lawyer who currently acts for Julian Assange amongst her many other cases, causes and projects around the globe. Unfortunately, there is no information concerning her time and date of birth.
George Clooney's success
So, what makes George tick? George Clooney's horoscope shows us that he has a Taurus Sun and Mercury. He also has a Pisces Ascendant, which might account for his ability to get along with folk from all walks of life. He is not only an actor, but a director, producer and screenwriter with involvement in TV as well as movies.
Yet a deeper look reveals his Moon in Capricorn conjuncts Saturn, with both planets opposing Mars in Leo pretty much exactly. This alignment suggests he can be an open and closed book. Mars in Leo, linked with entertainment, fun and pleasure, hints he’s in his element when using his creative abilities, in whatever capacity. It might also tie-in with his playboy reputation; although he also has Venus in Aries, suggesting that he enjoys the thrill of the chase. Which is, incidentally, how Amal is supposed to have seduced him - by playing hard to get!
However, there are likely aspects of him very few people get to understand, as represented by his Moon Saturn connection. For instance, although fairly chilled he is incredibly, deeply ambitious. Then again, natal Mercury squares Uranus in Leo in his chart, suggesting that he can be a bit of a rebel. Along with this, natal Jupiter in Aquarius can link with his humanitarian views and many charity projects.
What has led to his engagement
So what has led to his recent engagement? The relationship was first noted when transiting Saturn conjuncted his natal Neptune in the eighth house of deep relationships, around October last year. Perhaps their meeting encouraged a desire to be really close, and to spend time with and perhaps work alongside a kindred spirit.
At the same time, transiting Pluto is currently squaring his natal Venus in Taurus, with this ongoing into 2015, suggesting an experience of the kind that can radically change and transform him. Perhaps he was looking for a soul mate, and judging by his reaction, seems to have finally discovered the one.
