Aries Signature Star Child: Satyana Denisof

Satyana, daughter of Alyson Hannigan and Alexis Denisof, is our featured Aries "Star Child." The Kiddiegram reports are the heart and soul of Kiddiegram, because they were created out of a desire to help you understand and nurture your precious one in the unique ways they need. A Kiddiegram is truly a "user's manual for parents.

Satyana is certainly a ray of sunshine to everyone that spots her out and about, including the Paparazzi. When Venus is prominently placed in a chart (in Satyana's case it's very close to her Sun), there tends to be a certain 'je ne sais quoi' about them, something that attracts us and charms us. Her Leo south node reveals no qualms about showing off or hamming it up when she knows she's got an adoring audience watching. Satyana's parents may both be actors, but Satyana's definitely the star of the show!

Satyana's chart reveals a great deal of creativity, starting with that Venus (also a planet of creativity) blending with the Sun, which represents our essential selves, but beyond that, Satyana has four planets in imaginative Pisces, including Mercury, the planet that rules over how we learn, think, and express our thoughts, and Uranus, the planet of invention and uniqueness. With these two so close together, Uranus lends it's lightning quickness to Mercury's thought processes, so we can expect a unique perspective and often shockingly insightful and creative statements from Satyana, which will only intensify as she grows.

More about Mercury and Uranus from Satyana's Kiddiegram:

Mercury conjunct Uranus

     Satyana Marie is inclined to hold radical, outrageous, or unconventional views, and she enjoys challenging traditional ideas. She has a quick, inventive mind and is apt to have sudden inspirations or flashes of insight. She is also prone to be nervous and mentally restless, particularly in a learning environment that is too structured, or where there is much emphasis on rote and repetition.

Cindy Crawford's Mini Me

Is Cindy Crawford's daughter following in her footsteps? 10-year-old Kaia modeled recently in a photo shoot for Versace and realized it was pretty hard work, according to mom Cindy who was on the spot and talked to Parade magazine about modeling and motherhood:
"I thought she looked great. I was proud of her. I was there when she shot it, so I know what the experience was like for her. She liked it, but she also saw that it’s hard work. When we left the shoot, it wasn’t like, ‘Oh, I can’t wait to do that again,’ it was like, ‘That was kinda hard!’ The first 10 snaps are really fun and then it’s work. There’s a reason they call it a job.
I thought it was a really good introduction for her to understand a little bit what I do. It was a really great experience for her. Other people see more of me in her than I do, but I just see her. I always tease her that she stole everything from me. I’m like, ‘You have my old legs and I want them back!"
 Kaia was born under a Virgo Sun, so she's not likely to balk too much at hard work. Virgo children (and adults) like to feel a sense of accomplishment through progress and effort, so developing and honing a skill can be quite rewarding. Since it's Kaia's sun, the astrological symbol representing our sense of self, feeling like she has something to offer is quite central to her healthy self-esteem. Of course, it doesn't have to be modeling, but really anything she decides to take on will do the trick, as long as she works at it and can see herself improving and doing a good job.

No doubt Kaia and her mom share a special bond. They've both got a tender and romantic Pisces moon. Bring on the girl talk and the chick flicks for these two!

Hilary Duff Welcomes First Baby: Luca Cruz

Hilary Duff and her husband welcomed their first baby, baby boy Luca Cruz, Tuesday evening. Mlle. Kiddie cast the chart for around 7 pm, although an official birth time has not been made public.

Born with the best of both worlds, Luca was born under an energetic Aries Sun and a sweetheart Pisces Moon. With quick-thinking Mercury and quick-acting Uranus grouped close to the Sun, he'll likely keep his parents on their toes. Uranus adds an edge of surprise to Luca's personality, and in Aries, he'll probably be quite impulsive and spontaneous. Good thing he has Mars, the planet of action, in sensible, cautious Virgo, to help him think twice before pulling an Arien daredevil stunt. 

His moon in Pisces will add a sense of whimsy and imagination to his already quirky sense-of-humor, and a sweet gentleness. And Venus, the planet of relationship, coupled with generous Jupiter, will make it tough not to love this little guy!

Sunny Sinks Ink

Sunny James tattooing dad
Of course Jesse James' 8-year-old Capricorn daughter Sunny has made an impression on him, as kids tend to do, but this time she left a mark! Sunny helped a tattoo-artist ink her name on dad's wrist, in her own handwriting. Dad tweeted a couple of pictures from the experience, including the final work of art.

Maybe she has aspirations of becoming a tattoo artist, or maybe she's just having a little fun, but Sunny could certainly have some striking artistic sensibilities. Venus, the planet of creativity is right next to Neptune, the planet of imagination and inspiration, in Sunny's chart. Many people who consider themselves artists have a strong Venus, and a strong link between Venus and Neptune.

Sunny's Venus-Neptune conjunction is in the sign of Aquarius, so it's likely that whatever creative pursuits Sunny engages in, they will be inventive, unusual, and quirky!

Silly Sadie Grace

Christina Applegate, mom of 1-year-old Aquarius daughter Sadie Grace, talked with Scholastic's Parent & Child magazine about her "funny little kid:"
"She makes me laugh every day — she’s a funny little kid and a happy girl. She’ll stand on a little box in our room and press her musical bear until she finds the song she wants. Then she grooves, dances, and stomps around for 20 minutes. She has the best time all by herself. Martyn and I love watching that — it makes us laugh really hard."
Every sign has their own sense of humor and for Aquarians, it's the absurd, the sudden, and the unexpected. With instinctual Mars so close to Sadie's Sun, she'll have a great ability to shoot "from the hip" and make others laugh with her comedic timing.

Christina goes on to say that she's gotten a lot sillier since Sadie was born, doing monkey imitations and just being generally "ridiculous." While Sadie's Mars is next to her Sun, Christina's Mars is next to her Moon, in the sign of Pisces which brings a sort of whimsy to her humor style. With a wealth of Sagittarius planets in her chart, she's also going to be great at spontaneous, silly, physical humor. Looks like the monkey imitations are working out for her, but apparently "Sadie is a much harder critic than the public!"

Astrology Basics: It's Elemental, Kiddies!

Signs and the 4 elements
While every chart is unique and every planet in it has it's own, separate meaning, astrologers can group planets in a chart together to get a sense of the overall 'tone' of a chart. One common way is to see which element is most represented in a natal chart. Astrology uses these four elements: fire, earth, air, and water, as symbols of certain traits. The twelve signs are divided amongst these four elements. The fire signs are Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius. The earth signs are Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn. The air signs are Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius. The water signs are Cancer, Scorpio and Pisces.

The fire signs tend to be more expressive, outgoing, playful, and spontaneous. They like to stay active. The earth signs are practical and logical. They tend to prefer a routine and like to play hands-on. The air signs are curious and talkative. They like intellectual stimulation, and like to figure things out. The water signs are sensitive and intuitive, with big hearts and imaginations. They can also be great cuddlers!

To figure out the elemental balance in a natal chart, one simply counts how many planets fall in each element. Much of the time, the elements are pretty well distributed in a natal chart, but sometimes there can be a predominance of one element. Bindi Irwin, the daughter of the late Steve Irwin, is a good example of a strong fire element. With her sun, moon, and ascendant all in fire signs, one can see how she is always on the go, outgoing and exploring just like her dad. Jayden Federline, son of Britney Spears, has many planets in the earth signs, probably tending to be more grounded and low-key in his personality. The Broderick twins, Marion and Tabitha, have their sun, moon, and ascendant all in the tender and sweet water element, and we saw recently how the predominance of the communicative air signs in Honor Marie Warren's chart had her non-stop talking!

You can learn more about the elements at the parent/child interactive website on Kiddiegram!
