Celebrities Born With Uranus in Taurus
Part II: Male Celebrities
As we saw in Part I of this series, the term “Uranus in Taurus” seems much closer to being an oxymoron or a joining of polar opposite terms than being the hyper-technical phrase astrologically signifying“Uranus in its Fall”.
As was initially explained in the Female portion of the Uranus in Taurus program,the planet Uranus’ astrological associations of sudden Change, being revolutionary in nature,along with setting oneself apart through one’s inherent sense of uniqueness , non-conformity.and Intellectual genius, seem to clash in stark contrast to the sign of Taurus’ inherent characteristics of traditionalism, being non- confrontational at all costs, as well as being fiercely resistant to changes of any kind. In fact, Uranus’ core energy dynamic of intense speed both mentally and planetarily by orbital transit seem as if thwarted by the sign of the Bull’s preferred “slow but steady”approach to things overall. Even just hearing the term “Uranus in Taurus” denotes a complicated dynamic that is challenging at best that appears to be directly opposing the sign of the Bull’s easygoing, yet directly straightforward, “short but sweet”quiet approach towards Life.
If Women Are From Venus, Men Are From Just About Everywhere Else
Quite often in Astrology the terms “masculine” and “feminine” are referenced. Most don’t realize however, that both defining “terms have everything to do with dynamics of energy and nothing at all to do with gender. Case in point, The astrological term “Masculine” refers to an energy dynamic that is overtly active and outward, whereas the astrological term “Feminine” refers to a dynamic of energy that can sometimes be ( but not always) passive and inward. Part I clearly showed how the sign of Taurus is inherently feminine by virtue of the first representative of the Element of Earth’s planetary ruler being the only planet of our Solar System being named after an ancient female deity, Venus. As well as the parts of the human body ruled by the sign of Taurus are the throat and neck area which consists of the inherently feminine physicalities of the larynx (or voicebox), the actual voice itself, as well as the endocrine gland that usually is unnoticed by most of us until its presence is made known whenever it is not functioning properly- the thyroid gland.
Venus’ Powerful Planetary Influence of Pleasantry
So everyone is up to par, the planet named after the ancient goddess of Love and Beauty, otherwise known as Venus, is the planetary ruler of both the first representative of the element of Earth, better known as the sign of Taurus the Bull, as well as is the planet that oversees the second representative of the element of Air otherwise called the sign of Libra, the Scales.
When considering the list of Famous Females in Part I, each of the ladies born with the planet Uranus in Taurus achieved their notoriety based on Venus’ influence. For example, those whose looks were the source of their fame tended to have a physical presence that could be called “”hyper” feminine by having extreme curves in all the right places, such as with the careers of Beauty bombshells Brigitte Bardot and Raquel Welch, Those who gained fame through their voice reflected Venus’ influence of being non-aggressive, especially if their Sun sign was placed in either of the Venus ruled signs which are known for their non-aggressive and overtly pleasant tendencies, as we saw with Taurus singer Barbra Streisand along with Libran songstress Julie Andrews.
Male Celebrities Born with Uranus in Taurus
Since our list of male celebrities who have been born with Uranus in Taurus combines the femininity of Taurus’ traits with the masculinity of Uranus’ inherent quality of individually being able to stand out, ,our famous men are each considered to be inordinately attractive but with a twist. Their physical beauty may be called unusual, or highly atypical, but none of these men could in any way be described as possessing “classically” handsome good looks . Along with their physical selves, their attraction factor is greatly enhanced by such unobvious (and unseen) factors as wit, charm and overall disposition playing a major part. This would include generational musicians , John Lennon and Bob Dylan, martial artist Bruce Lee, fellow film actors Al Pacino, Jack Nicholson, Robert Redford, and Anthony Hopkins, French dictator, Napoleon Bonaparte. Theoretical physicist, Stephen Hawking, as well as Classical composers Ludwig van Beethoven and Johann Sebastian Bach.
When The Power of Attraction Becomes Twistedly Perverse
As we have seen with the list of Famous Females born with Uranus in Taurus, Attraction plays a powerful role in the lives of many of these ladies’ lives But where we saw the power of Attraction emerge in the form of bodacious curves being in all the right places, when considering the list of male celebrities, the power of Attraction becomes muted as well as truly perverted by its source as the world has recently witnessed with some scandals that have become newsworthy as of late – in particular those involving funny men Woody Allen and Bill Cosby.
Two of the biggest celebrity scandals as of late have both involved men who were popular comedians when their careers first began and were also born with Uranus in Taurus- Woody Allen and Bill Cosby
I see the case involving Mr. Allen more along the lines of Vanity gone awry. The man has consistently been hero worshiped for his highly cerebral and wittily sarcastic films where the source of all the irony was Mr. Allen himself. Despite being in films that were accredited his name for directing, as late as 1995, Woody Allen, who is currently 85 years old, found it necessary to cast himself as the romantic lead in his films. He began dating actress Mia Farrow in 1980. At the time, Farrow had seven children, including a 7 year old daughter from Seoul , Korea whom she had adopted with her then husband, composer Andre Previn in 1977 named Soon-Yi. Farrow and Allen over the course of their relationship together had three children; 2 of them adopted, Dylan and Moses Farrow and one biological, Ronan Farrow. In 1992 Farrow discovered nude photos of her daughter Soon-Yi, who at the time was 21 years old, which Allen had admitted taking. In August of that same year, Farrow accused Allen, then aged 56, of sexually violating their then 7 year old adopted daughter Dylan, which resulted in Allen denying the charges. Even with a team from Yale-New Haven Hospital concluding that Allen did not violate Dylan and the New York Department of Social Services finding”no credible evidence” to support Farrow’s allegations, Dylan Farrow has repeated the claim while as an adult. It should be noted that Farrow’s daughter, Soon-Yi Previn married Allen in December of 1997. Mia Farrow has since been accused of child abuse by two of her children, Soon-Yi and Moses, who have also accused her of making false allegations toward Allen and of “brainwashing” Dylan. Moses Farrow has since tweeted the following about his mother and sister, “So many times I saw my mother try to convince her that she was abused—and it has worked.”
Comedian Bill Cosby has had sexual assault allegations made against him by sixty women which have included “drug-facilitated sexual assault”, “sexual battery”, “child sexual abuse”, and “sexual misconduct” between the years 1965 and 2008 in 10 different U.S. states and one Canadian province. In 2018, Bill Cosby was found guilty of 3 counts of aggravated indecent assault, was fined $25,000, and was sentenced from 3- 10 years in prison. One of Cosby’s accusers, Jewell Allison, has described him as a “sociopath” and has also stated the following:
“We may be looking at America’s greatest serial rapist that ever got away with this for the longest amount of time. He got away with it because he was hiding behind the image of Cliff Huxtable.”
Bill Cosby played the character of Dr. Cliff Huxtable on a sitcom entitled “The Cosby Show” which was created by Cosby that ran for 8 consecutive seasons on NBC from 1984 – 1992. Five of those seasons consecutively saw “The Cosby Show” rated as the #1 TV show on television.
Bill Cosby has maintained his innocence and has repeatedly denied the many allegations made against him to the present day.
Uranus in Taurus’Men: Beauty With “A Twist”
Whereas the Famous Females listed in Part I were all highly admired for their overtly feminine characteristics , the list of male celebrities born with Uranus in Taurus all had noticeable looks, but with a noted twist:
Burt Reynolds, who was consistently accused of being Marlon Brando’s stand-in during the early years of his career and also for dating a woman 20 years his senior, TV talk show host Dinah Shore, Warren Beatty, who married a woman 21 years his junior, actress Annette Bening, and “quirky”actors Dennis Hopper , Peter Fonda, and George Hamilton.
Voices With That Extra “Something”
As mentioned earlier, the parts of the body ruled by the sign of Taurus are the throat and neck areas, particularly the larynx or “voice box”. As we have seen with the Famous Females listed in Part I, the voice’s main Venusian goal is to stand out by sounding as pleasant as possible, as is the case with singers Judy Collins and Connie Francis, with the male celebrities we find Venus’ influence of sounding pleasant without showing a sweat as with the classical tenors who make up 2/3 of the singing sensation trio, “The Three Tenors“, Luciano Pavarotti and Placido Domingo* along with the Country & Western singer known for his easygoing “speaking” style of singing, Kenny Rodgers.
*In 2020, Mr. Domingo has had “sexual harrassment “allegations made against him which go as far back as the late 1980’s.
To conclude the listing of both male and female celebrities born with the planet Uranus placed in the sign of Taurus spans across many areas of life and is comprised of different facets of talent and fame, but one trait is certain among all of them : while working at their craft to be some of the best in their chosen field, they all are beautiful in their own right.
