Matthew Macconaughey is an American actor, born on November 4th 1969. He is well known for roles in romantic comedies such as: The Wedding Planner 2001, How to Lose a Guy In 10 Days 2003.and in Dramatic roles in The Lincoln Lawyer 2011, Interstellar 2014 and the acclaimed Dallas Buyers Club 2013.
Mcconaghy started enjoying great success later in his career, before that he studied in the University of Texas where he majored in communications and wanted to continue and study law. His breakthrough role was in Dazed and Confused 1992 and after a few roles in lighthearted comedies, he begin staring in much more dramatic roles.
Matthew is a Scorpio with a Virgo moon and Gemini Ascendant. The Gemini rising sign might explain why he kept being cast as a romantic playboy in comedies in his early career. Gemini is the ultimate playboy, for along with Libra it craves partnerships and needs to be stimulated or it gets bored and leaves. Matthew also has both Jupiter and Venus in the sign of Libra. Signifying a great ability to project into the world (through acting) the very essence of love and beauty. It also means that in his personal life, having a beautiful partner is very important.
The combination of the Sun in Scorpio with the Gemini rising and the Libra placements allow Maccounaghy to be a sharp communicator. This is someone who can argue with others on screen with a touch of humor (Gemini) and allot of intellect. No wonder he wanted to be a lawyer! In fact Mcconaughey even payed one in The Lincoln Lawyer 2011. Scorpio sun with a Virgo moon people are very intellectual beings who love to analyze things in depth. The main problem they might face in life is being estranged from the emotional life which they don’t value as much their rational. This makes sense because they are very good at understanding things in a much clearer way than anyone else.Acting is a way to connect to the missing emotions in a nuch needed way. The Libra Venus may be about beauty and partnership- but don’t forget it is also an air sign. Venus shows what we value and Maccounghy values “the beautiful mind”.
A Scorpio with an air rising is very attractive and charming to anyone they meet. They appear friendly and easy going and therefore make friends easily. They also are very good talkers because they combine the Scorpio intensity and sharp tongue with a humorous approach. This is especially true because Mcconaughey has his Mercury in Scorpio in the 6th house.
The 6th house is ruled by Virgo which is his Moon placement. Allowing him an endless access into his own deep Scorpio unconscious when acting (acting is ruled by Mercury and Neptune). Choosing complicated roles is very necessary for Matthew because he needs the mental work. Remember that the 6th house is ruled by Virgo who is a workaholic.
A mercury in Scorpio here means that he likes to work hard for his roles and research them in advance. All the above placements show me someone who likes to break things down and then rebuild them. Scorpio likes to break things in order to rebuild them and Virgo likes to do the same so it can understand all the little details. So here is a person who is a workaholic and who is always thinking how to transform himself. And if you think about it- this is exactly what he did! He chooses intense roles that require mental and physical preparation. And from a romantic comedies actor he transformed himself into roles like the one in Dallas Buyers Club 2013 ,where he plays a drug addict that finds out he has HIV.
I if didn’t know this person was a actor I would suggest they become a doctor, awyer or detective. Someone that can break things down in order to build them better- this can be the Law or the human body. But then you see that he has his MC in Aquarius and this changes things. People with this placement tend to need freedom in their career. If look at the Venus and Jupiter in Libra in this context. It is evident that this is someone that values individuality as part of their philosophy of life. Venus speaks of our values Jupiter of our beliefs and here the theme of partnership is evident. But in the context of the MC and Scorpio sun: The type of partnership is the kind that allows others the freedom to be themselves, both mentally and emotionally. Aquarius is the ultimate sign of fame and the public love people with this MC, so I think a great deal of long term success is promised for Matthew McConaughey.
I would also like to take a look at Saturn in Taurus in the 12th house. In general I find that Taurus is a good position for the planet of limitations and stability – it is also slow to change and very stable. But the 12th house is hard for any planet to be in. It’s like saying that stability is not to be found in life. It is much harder to access the qualities of Taurus and Saturn if it’s in this house. A person needs to struggle to find that place within them that is stable. Macounghy is already dominated by Air signs and the very emotional Scorpio- so this may be a problem. Thankfully he has the Virgo ability to work long and hard in order to reach his goals. And even better is having the beautiful Libra Venus and Jupiter in the 5th house. Promising lots of fun, romance and exciting adventures as well as luck with money and travel.
