Marilyn Monroe, my favorite girl 🤩 my favorite Gemini ♊️ Marilyn Monroe is a Sun Gemini, the sign of duality. Many Geminis have more than one name but Marilyn went one step further and had two names before the creation of her famous stage name, Marilyn Monroe. She was born Norma Jeane Mortenson on June 1st 1926 and later changed her name to Norma Jean Baker.
Here’s her Ascendant sign, Leo, the sign associated with ‘star’dom and wanting to be centre of attention. Leo is ruled by the Sun, the planetary body around which all the other planets orbit. Leo is the sign of the individual and the Ascendant is first impressions, how you come across to other people. At their best, strong Leo types have a big ego, like to show off and love to be adored.
n her chart, Marilyn’s Neptune is in showy Leo trine Venus in Aries, the planet that rules the Midheaven, ruling her vocation in life. Here we see how she used her beauty (Venus) to pursue fame (Neptune), plus her desire for romance. Venus in Aries is a classic symbol of girl (Venus) power (Aries) and Marilyn was single-minded in pursuit of her acting goals.Neptune also makes a T-square aspect in her chart opposing the Moon in Aquarius and both planets square to Saturn in Scorpio. This is a more difficult legacy and alludes to the damage done by her lack of parenting and a stable home life.
Marilyn’s husband Joe DiMaggio was jealous of all the attention she received from men, Marilyn was suspected of having affairs with high-profile men and even her death was suspicious. It was reported that she was found in the nude having suffered an overdose but rumours were rife that her death wasn’t by her own hand.
Marilyn was most famously linked to the President of the United States, John F Kennedy, and it was suggested that the two had a love affair, a liaison in 1962. Like Marilyn, JFK was a Sun Gemini, born on May 29th 1917, and their birthdays are only 3 days apart, although different years. At a party for the President’s 45th birthday, Marilyn notoriously sang ‘Happy Birthday’ in a very sexy manner.
