|Maverick Robert Downey Jr. has Sun, Mercury, and Venus in Aries making him quite typical of this sign. Aries types are fiery, impulsive, energetic, and follow their own heart and mind. They are leaders and initiators with healthy egos, and with Leo rising, this is even more pronounced. The Aries inventiveness and innovativeness is often expressed through mechanical and/or engineering ability and the elements of steel or iron and fire, so it is no surprise that the movie role of Iron Man fit him so well. Sun in Aries loves life and activity in general. Mercury in Aries is open, honest, and likes to communicate about self. Venus in Aries likes speed, action, courage, and challenge. The Earth element is a necessary grounding force for Fire and there is plenty of it in his chart; Moon in Taurus is an excellent stabilizing force in any chart but especially so for Aries or the other two fire Sun signs. This Moon helps to channel the fire energy and drive productively and predictably and gives a likeable and sensible personality. Jupiter with the Moon enhances the public reputation and of itself fascilitates the accumulation of wealth and the power that comes with it. Mars in Virgo is earthy, sensual, hardworking, and service-oriented, and quite capable of handling complex or delicate tasks. Mars conjunct Uranus is inventive and innovative and can do things rather quickly and unexpectedly. There is much technical or scientific genius and know-how. Mars conjunct Pluto is like a pressure valve ready to blow. There is much repressed energy which needs to be channeled properly. Saturn in Pisces is very sensitive and sacrificing and needs to be alone frequently to rest and recharge, otherwise it can lead to escapism in its many forms. Saturn here tries to bridge the ethereal and material worlds, often through their love of fine music, art, dance, and film. Uranus in Virgo is interested in helping humanity through technical innovation and the study of diet, health, exercise, and the environment. Uranus conjuncted by Pluto is a genereration of rebels and reformers who bring permanent change to our world. Neptune in Scorpios are secretive and investigative and strongly interested in the metaphysical or paranormal. Pluto in Virgo people are highly critical and analytical and go to extremes where work and health are concerned.|
