On January 21, the Hollywood foreign press will once again present its annual Golden Globe Awards, an event that is widely regarded as a precursor to the Oscars. To the delight of loyal fans, Sex and the City, HBO’s popular, risqué show adapted from Candace Bushnell’s book (based on her columns in the New York Observer), has once again garnered its share of nominations. Kim Cattrall (Samantha Jones) and Cynthia Nixon (Miranda Boggs) are competing in the category of best supporting actress in a TV series, and the show itself is vying for best musical or comedy series. But the main attention grabber will surely be the show's lead and executive producer, Sarah Jessica Parker. She was last year's recipient of the award for best actress in a musical or comedy TV series, and is this year's nominee in the same category.

Bustle, Baseball and a Ban on Boredom

Astrology Horoscope: Sarah Jessica ParkerBorn on March 25, 1965 in Nelsonville, Ohio (time unknown), Sarah Jessica Parker was destined to succeed in a competitive world. Her Sun, Mercury and Venus in pioneering, assertive and energetic Aries (Editor's Note: If she was born before 5:00 am, her Venus would be in Pisces) provide her with the drive and ambition she cultivated early on as a professional child actress. In 1979, she lit up the stage as the third Annie in the Broadway musical of the same name, and spent some of her teenage years on two short-lived television series, Square Pegs and A Year in the Life.

An overachieving Aries who becomes bored rather easily when things don’t move along quickly enough, Parker has made herself equally at home on television, in theater and on the screen, where she is currently featured in the film State and Main. Off the screen, she has a passion for baseball (she is an admitted Yankees fan), bicycle riding and for frequenting flea markets amidst the bustle of New York City, her home base.

Softening the hard edge of the Aries planets is the Sun-Venus conjunction. Venus adds charm to the otherwise aggressive Aries mix, and enables Parker to interject that sweet, sympathetic and likeable quality into all her roles. Blending just the right amount of physical energy, appeal and raw sexuality, Parker is perfectly cast as the single, thirty-something sex columnist Carrie Bradshaw, a character loosely modeled after Candace Bushnell herself. Unlike her casually horizontal and usually noncommittal character, Parker is a romantic at heart (her Sun, or essential self, is conjunct Venus, the planet of love) and she is happily married to actor Matthew Broderick, whom she met in 1991 and married in 1997.

Creative Control

As an entrepreneurial and visionary Aries, Parker hit her mark when she became Sex and the City’s executive producer, enabling her to have creative control and to reap financial rewards. Aries may have provided the fearlessness to take on this daring venture, but the take-charge Capricorn Moon allowed her to actually make her dream real.

The Moon represents our feelings and security needs. The down-to-earth Capricorn Moon gives her impulsive Aries Sun a firm groundwork of common sense, practicality and a no-nonsense approach to life. Having responsibilities at an early age, or no childhood at all, is typical of the Moon’s placement in Saturn-ruled Capricorn. The square (by sign, not necessarily by degree since the birth time is unknown) between the Capricorn Moon (mother) and the Aries Sun (father), which can indicate a break in emotional security, accounts for her parent’s divorce when Sarah Jessica was two, and a subsequent move to New York when she was eleven so that she and her brother could pursue acting careers.

Rewards Through Hard Work

Sex and the City may have premiered in 1998, but the show’s popularity peaked during its recent third season, which aired this past summer and autumn. Its four leading ladies appeared on the cover of Time, and Parker herself was the subject of a People magazine cover story. All this hoopla can be attributed to the May–June 2000 conjunction between abundant Jupiter and hard-working Saturn, which precisely transited Parker’s natal Jupiter (wealth, luck) at 24 degrees Taurus.

Since the Jupiter-Saturn combination implies rewards through hard work, it is no wonder that whatever Sarah Jessica Parker touched in the past year has turned to gold. When the Golden Globes are handed out on January 21, Saturn, a planet of both completion and disappointment, will be returning to 24 Taurus. Will Saturn thwart her chances by stopping Jupiter dead in its tracks, or will the final passage of this Saturn transit complete the circle of success? Stay tuned to the Golden Globes broadcast, for only time will surely tell.
