The birthday boy for September 2 is Keanu Reeves.
I generally get along well with Virgo natives. However, as I’ve mentioned a zillion times already on this blog, I find their inability to look at themselves critically to be the major shortcoming of their sign. Yet I do believe that Keanu Reeves knows himself quite well. For that reason, I looked at his natal chart to see if there was something in it that made me believe that he was an atypical example of a Virgo individual.
That’s not what I found. In fact, Reeves has his sun conjunct Mercury in Virgo along with a Virgo ascendant. Yet this conjunction occurs in the self-reflective twelfth house opposed by Saturn in Pisces in the sixth house. Saturn provides grounding in this instance, bringing reality to the opposing planets. I would normally look at the sun/Mercury position on this chart as a sure sign of problems with addiction and a distinct tendency toward escapism. Yet that’s not the case here.
I also find that many Virgo natives bite off more than they can chew. I don’t see that in this chart and I don’t see it in Keanu Reeves work as an actor. He’s not trying to play Hamlet, after all. Well, most of the time he’s not trying to play Hamlet . . .
