his film debut in 1981, Hanks has captured the depth and soul of
every character he plays. His army of fans reaches out to their hero
who portrays ďeverymanĒ in his most natural, vulnerable and
one movie hit after another, Tom travels a steady green road to the
bank paved with much deserved megabucks for his stellar
performances. Although in his early 40s, Tom already has two Oscars under his belt.
Tenth House is the pinnacle of the astrological chart. It is the
house of career, status and authority. A person born with Venus appreciation, the arts) and the Sun (identity, where we shine) in
the Tenth House would have a better than average chance for success
in a creative field. Thatís certainly the case for Tom Hanks.
in the Tenth House: Charisma and Popularity
Venus in the Tenth House of career relates to Tomís box office
popularity and the genuine affection shown him by fans of both
sexes. He maintains excellent relationships with the studio heads,
producers and members of the cast and crew. Talk show hosts canít
book him fast enough. Even the gossip-grabbing media rate an
interview with Tom a plum assignment. Have you ever noticed how the
press treats him? They focus on Tomís professionalism,
authenticity and congenialityóan image thatís easy to project
with a strong Tenth House.
with Venus in the Tenth House often choose the arts to express their
talents. His well-placed Venus in communicative Gemini indicates
that acting is his life work, the music of his soul. He is capable
of bringing a range of characters to life and of changing his body
appearance and mannerisms drastically. Hanks is the widower
abetted by his capricious young son to find a new partner
in Sleepless in Seattle; the
debilitated, courageous AIDS victim searching for employment justice
in Philadelphia (Oscar winner);
and the soused, over-the-hill womenís softball team manager in A
League of Their Own.
Venus indicates he is a seeker of a variety of experiences and
really wants to know what makes people tick. Tom displayed this
inquisitiveness when he portrayed Commander Jim Lovell in the film
Apollo 13. Later he was drawn to fulfill a dream he had as a child
to explore the accomplishments of The United States Space
program. With the authorization and cooperation of NASA, he produced
and narrated an acclaimed television mini-series called From
the Earth to the Moon, which won an Emmy award.
in Cancer: That Patriotic Thing He Does
is a Cancer, born on July 9, 1956 at 11:17 am in Concord, California.
Cancers have a strong need for security and
are tenacious about reaching their goals. They are also highly
sensitive and often intuitive. Diplomacy is one of their strong
points, as is caring for others. Although they show a calm exterior,
many Cancers are complex and private in their thoughts. Acting is
one way to bring them out of their shell.
see his Cancer Sun in action, look at some of the topics covered in
Tomís movies. Who else but Cancer Tom would be the natural star
for the award winning World War II movie, Saving
Private Ryan? A search was ordered to find the missing
Private Ryan so his mother would not have to endure the loss of
still another son (three others were killed in battle). Tom played a
protective Army captain leading the search through France with a
small squad of soldiers who were ordered to locate Ryan and send him
home to his grieving Mom. Mother, family, and patriotism are all
Cancer themes. After making the film, Tom spearheaded efforts with
the cooperation of the federal government to get recognition for
forgotten veterans of the war and to facilitate reunions with
his latest film, The Green Mile, Hanks plays the head guard at a
Louisiana maximum security prison. Through a brilliant spiritual
awakening, Tom's character realizes that one of the inmates about to
be electrocuted is innocent of an irrevocable murder conviction. He
compassionately acts on his conscience to make the convict's final
days more bearable. Here we see the compassionate and caretaking
side of Cancer.
one of his Oscar-winning roles, Tom played affable Forrest
Gump, a slow-witted man who floated through life in the Baby
Boomer decades and seemed to be on hand for every socio-political
event affiliated with Americaófrom the rise of Elvis to the fall
of Nixon. He was in the military in this movie also and had a strong
affection for his doting mother who told him that life was like a
box of chocolates. Again, we see the Cancer patriotism and love of
home and family.
Gump may not have known what he was going to find inside the chocolates,
but with Hanks in the cameraís lens, supported by his Tenth House
Cancer Sun and Gemini Venus, we know weíll get a quality performance.
