November 24 is Katherine Heigl’s birthday.
I was just looking at Katherine Heigl’s natal chart, wondering why so many people write such unfavorable things about her. I read a bit about her past and a few controversial things that she has said to the press, and then something strange struck me about her chart.
She has Mercury in Sagittarius. I also have Mercury in Sagittarius. Although I’m happy to be known as a goofball, I have major insecurities with the way that my audience perceives me. I know that I’m witty and brighter than most people, but for some reason I get stressed out when I imagine what people who don’t believe in astrology think of me. Do they believe I’m an idiot for having faith in something that they don’t understand?
Mercury is in its detriment in Sagittarius. It’s in a sign where its energy is scattered. It’s also a position that can make an individual preachy about their ideals. The last thing I ever want to do is find myself trying to convert people to my point of view only to realize that I have no idea what I’m talking about. I don’t ever want to look stupid.
Katherine Heigl seems to share that quality with me. I think that she wants to be recognized as a serious actress when her talent could lead her into far less-serious territory. In that respect, both of us need to learn how to stop trying to win over people who will never be our fans. We can’t be everything to everyone, even when Mercury in Sagittarius tells us that we can be.
