The Academy Award Nominee Announcements:

Will There Be Bombshell Surprises?

By Debbie Keil-Leavitt, December 21, 2011

The Oscar Nominees Announcement is scheduled to take place on January 24, 2012 at the traditional time of 5:30 am.  The sky at that time would fascinate any astrologer as Pluto will be rising exactly on the horizon in Capricorn with Saturn exactly on the mid-heaven at 29 degrees of Libra in Los Angeles. 

Since Pluto is the planet of transformation and Capricorn is the sign of structure, we might even see some type of rules change or change in the structure of the proceedings.  Maybe they will just change the time of the announcement as an astrologer would likely advise them.  In any case, expect the unexpected! 

Honorees will be those who are bold and fearless in their approach to their craft.  Yet with Saturn on the mid-heaven there will be a strong nod to Hollywood’s history.  Many of the awards already announced have celebrated just such films.   In particular, the black & white silent film by French actor Michel Hazanavicius, “The Artist;” Martin Scorcese’s innovative and likely Holiday classic, “Hugo;” and Terence Malick’s “Tree of Life” fit both descriptions.  These films are likely to be in competition for best picture, director and other categories.

Terence Malick’s chart looks much stronger for the Academy Award nominations than it did for the Golden Globes, so his work will likely receive recognition.  The nod to Hollywood’s past extends to Michelle Williams’ portrayal of Marilyn Monroe in “My Week with Marilyn.”  Her chart looks strong for this day as well.  Also Woody Allen’s “Midnight in Paris” carries this theme of a nod to the past and his chart shows him as a winner.

The other primary film theme in the spotlight of the nominations is that of war and aggression from the point of view of the victims.  This brings such films as the “Land of Blood and Honey,” with Angelina Jolie’s debut as director showing the plight of women during war.  It is a perfect expression of sea goddess Sedna’s grand trine to Mars and Mercury.  Sedna expresses outrage at the abuse of women, children and animals.  “Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close” also addresses victims of violence - in this case 9/11.  Thomas Horn has the lead role in this film.  Unfortunately, his birth date isn’t available, but it does look good for a break-out young actor to have his a special day.

Steven Spielberg’s chart is excellent on this day so “War Horse,” with its great beauty and sentimentality, should be acknowledged. More of the powerful theme of life and death appears in the remake of the Swedish film, “The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo” starring Rooney Mara and “50/50”, starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt , a comedy about facing a potentially fatal disease.  Joseph Gordon-Levitt, has knock-out powerful aspects in his chart and Rooney Mara has intense aspects, as well.

Beyond some potential surprises, such dependable winners as Meryl Streep, Glenn Close and Jodie Foster among the ladies and Brad Pitt, Leo DiCaprio and George Clooney all have charts that look good for the nominations, with George Clooney looking particularly “blessed by Venus” that day.

“So many favorites, so few awards”…So whether your favorite film or actor was mentioned, these amazing films and artists are perfectly aligned with the sky theme of the Oscar nominations day.  Next, we’ll see who takes the final prize.
