Osment has an impressive resume. This young actor has already appeared
on screen with mega stars Tom
Willis, Kevin Spacey and Helen
Hunt. Additionally, his amazing performance as the young medium
in the smash hit The Sixth Sense earned Haley an Oscar nomination
that placed the rising twelve-year-old shoulder to shoulder with acting
Caine and Tom Cruise.
Haley was fascinated by the imaginary world of film, and using words like
“paleontologist” when he was only three. At five, he was spotted by a
casting agent in the playroom of a Southern California furniture store
and offered a Pizza Hut commercial that lead to his appearance as Forrest
Jr. in the Academy Award winning film Forrest Gump. Haley
was six when he first appeared on the big screen.
and luck had arranged for Haley to be in the right place at the right
time, it took more than opportunity for the six-year-old bit player to
become a sophisticated actor and Oscar nominee by age twelve. A brief
look at Haley’s biography tells us he was never an ordinary child, and
Haley’s horoscope reveals that he was born with the desire and need to
do something unique, as well as the initiative and potential self-confidence
to pursue opportunity when it came his way.
Road Less Traveled
was born April 10, 1988 in Los Angeles California. With his Sun in Aries,
his life revolves around taking the initiative. The Sun represents our
essential selves and our energy, and the Sun in Aries indicates an impetuous
person who initiates and instigates activities.
planet of instinctive motivation that is associated with Aries, is in
the same sign and may actually be conjunct Haley’s Moon (emotional needs),
in the futuristic and idealistic sign of Aquarius. (We do not have an
exact birth time for Haley, so we are unsure of the degree of his Moon. If he was born before 5:30 am, his Moon would be in Capricorn.)
With the drive of Aries and the inspiration of Aquarius to back him up,
Haley was born to go where no man (or child) has ever gone, and to do
it in his own special way.
Budding Social Activist
the benefic planet that bestows faith, self-confidence and opportunity,
is in Taurus, the sign of abundance. It is opposite the power planet
Pluto in the transforming sign of Scorpio and trine dreamy Neptune, hard-working
Saturn and rebellious Uranus in the sign that gets things done, Capricorn.
These aspects reveal Haley’s potential not only for great success and
accomplishment, as shown by Jupiter opposed Pluto, but his Capricorn planets
also predict the self-confident and ambitious use (Saturn) of his art
form (Neptune) to break down boundaries and question established authority
In his most
recent film Pay It Forward Haley plays Trevor, an eleven-year-old
whose social studies assignment is to “think of an idea to change the
world and put it into action.” Trevor embraces the idealistic assignment
and devises a pyramid-like plan in which he helps three people in need,
and they each in turn “pay it forward” by helping three others. This film
and Haley’s role reveal the developing social activism indicated in Haley’s
Haley had the right stuff. But even with all he had going for him, Haley
might have remained a seemingly ordinary (though smart and rebellious)
kid had it not been for the support and encouragement of his parents.
You could say Haley’s parents assumed the role of Jupiter. At each important
juncture, they modeled Jupiter’s faith, belief and confidence, instilling
their son with the self-confidence he needed to go beyond the norm.
At the time
of Haley’s Oscar appearance he was celebrating his first Jupiter return*.
Every twelve years, transiting Jupiter returns to the place it was when
a person was born and restates its original purpose in that person’s life.
A marked period of expansion begins at this time. Events happening during
this period are often rewarding and bring recognition and respect. Events
occurring during a young person’s first Jupiter return are very important
because they stamp the character of all future Jupiter returns.
Haley’s life, Jupiter will continue to present opportunities and Haley
will continue to reach beyond the ordinary, take risks to achieve his
personal goals and be ever more innovative, experimental and productive.
Considering the accolades bestowed on twelve-year-old Haley Joel Osment,
we should never underestimate this young man’s powerful potential.
Haley’s life is as singular as Haley himself, events such as Haley’s advanced
interest in film when he was three, his first big screen appearance when
he was six and his Oscar nomination when he was twelve are merely outer
indications of inner trends that mark predictable periods of growth, expansion
and integration of a child’s developing personality into the world. Astrologers
refer to this process as the first Jupiter cycle.
Three: Jupiter is 90 degrees (waxing square) from its birth
position. The toddler is now conscious of himself as a separate entity
with some control over his environment and is ready to test and integrate
his personality into the family unit.
Six: Jupiter is 180 degrees (opposition) from its birth position.
The child now sees himself as an “other” and is ready to begin peer integration.
This ordinarily coincides with the official beginning of formal education.
Nine: Jupiter is 270 degrees (waning square) from its birth
position. The child has reached a new sense of self and is now ready to
begin testing his personality beyond the sphere of family and peers. There
is a noticeable interest in learning new things as abstract thinking further
expands the child’s world.
Twelve: Jupiter returns home. The child has ideally achieved
sufficient independence, faith and self-confidence that he is now ready
to begin fully integrating his personality into the greater world and
a new Jupiter cycle of growth and expansion begins.
makes this first journey around a child’s horoscope it opens doors that
give the child the ever-increasing awareness that he is more than his
personality or family and is actually a separate being who participates
in a very diverse and highly social world.
