Happy 50th Birthday Will! Willard Carroll “Will” Smith, Jr. was born on September 25th 1968, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, U.S. Will is an actor, comedian, producer, rapper and songwriter, who has been nominated for five Golden Globe Awards, two Academy Awards and has won four Grammy Awards. In 1990 Will’s popularity rose as he embarked on this hit NBC television series ‘Fresh Prince of Bel-Air’ which was based upon his rap name from the late 1980’s. He is also the only actor to have eight consecutive films gross over $100 million in the domestic box office, eleven consecutive films gross over $150 million internationally, and eight consecutive films in which he starred, open at the number one spot in the domestic box office tally.
He is married to Actress and songwriter Jada Pinkett, and together they have two children, Jaden and Will Smith who have followed in his performing footsteps. Will also has a son Trey, who was born from his previous marriage to Sheree Zampino, Trey is currently a DJ, so music does seem to run into the Smith clan.
Moon In Scorpio
Sensitive and intuitive these qualities could make Will very clear-sighted indeed. There could be a secretive, intense and even sensual aura of those with this placement. This is partly because the Moon represents our inner-selves, and the Sign Scorpio has a burning desire for transformation, almost like a phoenix rising from the ashes, very mystical indeed! Moon in Scorpio people may possess a need for extreme trust and security this helps them to connect and create great loyalty towards others. It could feel like no one is ever able to give them exactly what they need. However, Moon in Scorpio people also usually have an uncanny gift to transform other people, by allowing them to be vulnerable, as well as building incredible trust. They are sometimes the best folks to turn to in the case of a crisis.
Ascendant In Leo
Those with their Ascendant in Leo seem to attract attention wherever they go, and so many people with this placement can be particularly drawn to the arts in some capacity. They can possess a real magnetism that gets them noticed, even if this is something they try not to bring on themselves. On the downside some Leo Ascendant folks could be prone to temper tantrums, self-indulgence or the need to jump to conclusions. On the plus side, they are naturally enthusiastic and full of drive and ambition, this tends to get them excited about new projects. Therefore giving them the platform to potentially make excellent promoters and spokespersons. All in all, Leo Ascendant folks are natural romantics and love to dream… the difference is, they may have the drive to make them come true.
Mars In Virgo
This placement could allow Will Smith to make use of his energy wisely. Mars is action and drive, and Virgo is precision. People with this placement could be drawn to becoming perhaps a surgeon of some kind, as people with this placement tend to know exactly what they want to do, and they belong to the category of specialists, not generalists. Earning abilities could possibly even be heightened with this placement too, due to the combination of drive, analysis and organisation that it acquires.
Sun In Libra
Beautiful. Peace loving. Fair. These are perhaps four words that sum up a The Sun In Libra Sign. Libra people are generally cooperative, calm and even graceful. They can naturally be drawn to all things beautiful and may have an appreciation for art. This is perhaps why in July this year ‘Will Smith was moved to tears after London street artist Richard Wilson painted a 65ft high portrait of the star in his home town of Philadelphia.’
Libra people can also feel more comfortable partnered up rather than flying solo. A few important friends around them may also bring great comfort. With Libra being a Cardinal sign, those with this placement can make great self-starters. When they have an idea, they don’t sit around and wait to be told what to do, they take action. Mostly, people born under this Sign treat everyone with the same respect and kindness, and are not quick to judge others, not until they have all the facts. Making them a wonderful ally. This is perhaps one reason why Will Smith is one of Hollywood’s favourite stars.
