Moon in Aries
With the Moon in Aries, Benedict could potentially have an impulsive streak, which could be triggered by boredom and the need for things to move fast. He is likely to have a vivid imagination which enthuses his passion for the roles he plays within his acting career. This need for fast pace change could potentially make those with this placement appear to be impatient or even short tempered. But underneath this perception is a warmth and a willingness to help and comfort others.
Sun in Cancer, Venus in Leo
The Sun in Cancer could see Benedict have a selective or even reserved manner when it comes to matters of the heart, but Venus in Leo energy has a strong since of seduction and even conquest. In the interests of love, potential lovers may have to earn esteem and love, confidence with this could also be hugely important. Benedict’s wife Sophie Hunter, is a director, playwright and former performer and so may well have these qualities in spades.
Ascendant in Libra
Those with this placement may appear to be reserved, introverted or even nervous at times. This placement may come across as delicate and charming, wanting to create harmony and peace. This year it was reported that Benedict was witness to a mugging as he was driving in the back seat of his taxi. He ordered the taxi to stop, and intervened chasing the perpetrators away. This display of bravery may have been partly due to his impulse (Moon in Aries) and partly due to his Ascendant in Libra, which loathes violence. This placement could also see those with it attracting many potential lovers, even those they are perhaps not mutually interested in. This is not done in a way to ‘play games’ it is simply part of the nature of this alluring placement.
