I’m very excited about the composite I just ran between Leonardo DiCaprio and Kate Winslet. The two made box-office history with Titanic in 1997, but were snubbed at the Oscars.
Next month, the two actors are reunited in Revolutionary Road, one of my favorite books, a setpiece about suburban angst written by Richard Yates. Based on the DiCaprio-Winslet composite, which has Sun conjunct revolutionary Uranus at 0 degrees of Scorpio, this time they may score with the critics and at the Academy Awards, but bomb at the box office.
Where do I get that? Well, even though the Sun/Uranus conjunction will be sextiling powerful Pluto in Capricorn when the film is released on Dec. 26 to qualify for Oscar consideration, next year Jupiter will be broadly conjuncting Neptune in Aquarius. That squares the Scorpio, so I’m getting disappointment.
I know, some people will say Neptune is good for film, but you can’t escape the challenging square.
We’ll see. If you want to take a peek at that composite, you can see it here, courtesy of Astrodienst.
