November 12 is Grace Kelly’s birthday.
I’m always skeptical when I look up a celebrity’s birth chart on a site like astrotheme.com because I have no idea where they get their information. Grace Kelly’s chart, for instance, includes her time of birth as 5:31 AM. That not only gives her a Scorpio ascendant, but also a first house Scorpio sun, a first house Scorpio Mercury and a first house Scorpio Mars. Needless to say, if the birth time indicated is correct, she was a Scorpio’s Scorpio.
When I look at her, my skepticism is mitigated. Alfred Hitchcock even said “Grace Kelly’s apparent frigidity was like a mountain covered with snow, but the mountain was a volcano.” I can’t imagine a better image to describe the typical manifestation of Scorpio sexuality. Much is made of Scorpionic “passion,” but most of you hot-blooded Scorpions hide your passion behind a veneer of cool indifference.
Kelly only made a handful of movies before leaving show business to become the real-life Princess of Monaco. Hitchcock directed Kelly in three films, “Dial M for Murder,” “Rear Window” and “To Catch a Thief.” The latter is like a love letter to Kelly’s beauty. I don’t believe that she was the greatest actress in Hollywood, but she was the great in this role. If you’ve never taken the time to familiarize yourself with the work of Grace Kelly, “To Catch a Thief” is a great place to start. They don’t make stars like that any more.
