Happy Birthday Christina Applegate

Christina Applegate is 38 years old today.

Christina has 5 planets, including her sun, in Sagittarius, which is a sign that is very motivated by their enthusiasm for new experiences and usually for life in general. Sagittarius is known as a very optimistic sign because there is always a hunger in them to learn, to try what they've never tried before. Christina probably gets very excited when she has a chance to try something new.

There seem to be two prominent themes in her chart. One is embodied by all her Sagittarius energy, her Gemini Ascendant, and her Moon-Mars conjunction. This represents a woman who is learning how to trust herself and find faith and joy in life by trying new things, asking questions and not being afraid of the answers, and getting a sense of her own emotional strength, especially by testing her courage. The other theme is represented by her Sun-Neptune conjunction, her Moon and Mars in Pisces, and North Node in the 9th house, which reveals that a great deal of her adventures in life will take her into her spiritual depths. Given that so much in her chart is about experience, it will be difficult and limiting to ask these questions only within the context of religion, but she must branch out and actually experience these questions and see the answers in life all around her, not in tidy theories. She is learning spiritual courage and freedom, especially.

The past 3-4 years have probably changed her greatly as they brought her need for courage and belief in her own strength to the surface. In 2005, she split from her husband, when her progressed moon was going through her 12th house of endings and release of things that have run their course, as well as re-prioritizing one's life on a spiritual level, and probably experienced a personal sense of rebirth and freedom as it moved through her first house. In summer 2008, she was diagnosed with breast cancer, as her progressed moon moved through her 2nd house, which tends to bring on various kinds of challenges all having to do with testing our ability to survive (not always with a literal life or death issue). Most interesting during this period of her life is that Saturn and Mars were passing in opposition past her own Moon-Mars conjunction. Mars often brings a confrontation with something that asks us to defend ourselves or to summon our courage and strength, or a call to action. Saturn often has us confront some kind of reality and make sometimes sobering decisions in light of the reality that cannot be bent or escaped. Christina Applegate said when she first was diagnosed "I was just shaking and — and then also immediately, I had to go into 'take-care-of-business-mode,'" which is exactly what Saturn and Mars, especially together, ask you to do. Sounds like she passed the test with a decisive move to ensure her survival and do what she had to do. Happy Birthday, Christina!
