There’s lots of conflicting information about the birth times of the twins born to Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie July 12 in Nice, France. One gossip site says one twin was born at 6:45 p.m. and the other at 7 p.m. However, this story says two girls were born, when in fact the twins were a girl and a boy: Vivienne Marcheline Jolie-Pitt and Knox Leon Jolie-Pitt.
People’s Web site has come forward with a 6:27 p.m. time for Knox, which it’s backing up with a picture of the birth certificate presented by the mayor of Nice, France. I’m going to go with that for now. People is saying Vivienne was born a minute or so later, so I’ve got her at 6:28 p.m. Here’s that link.
Even Gawker seems to have fallen prey to the twin girls story. Ah, news in the age of the Internet: Get your story first, check your facts later. And, of course, that’s exactly what I’m doing. Thank heavens for Astrodienst. A couple of clicks and I can have a new chart in no time, if need be.
Here’s the link to Knox’s chart, courtesy of Astrodienst.
The charts have a nice grand water trine between Sun in Cancer, Moon in Scorpio, and Uranus in Pisces. Even though the combination of these planets suggests “shared upsets” and “separation of the partners,” according to Reinhold Ebertin’s The Combination of Stellar Influences, a beneficial trine should help ease the pain.
The Sagittarius rising and Pluto in Sag could indicate the media frenzy that surrounded the birth of the twins, not to mention the nomadic, global lifestyle they are likely to have. Although their parents are American movie stars, the twins were born in France and will most likely spend a lot of time outside the U.S.
With expansive Jupiter as the ruler of both charts, Knox and Vivienne will be spiritual searchers. The Great Expander is in the earth sign of Capricorn so I don’t think material resources will be a concern, though with Neptune conjunct Node in the second house, it may be hard for them to hold on to money. The ethereal quality of their lives is emphasized by the Moon/Node square, which Ebertin says is “a spiritual link or unon with others.”
The Sun (male energy) in Cancer could symbolize Brad Pitt’s caretaking role of the children and/or the publicity that Angelina Jolie has gotten for motherhood.
On a less happy note, Mars (energy) is conjunct Saturn (restriction) in Virgo, which rules health. I wonder if there will be health problems or educational obstacles for the twins, since the conjunction is in the ninth house of higher education.
