The Astrology of Elizabeth Taylor

Explore the birth chart of this legendary actress and passionate Pisces

February 27 marks the birthday of passionate Pisces Elizabeth Taylor, who died at the age of 79 in 2011 after suffering a bout of health problems and congestive heart failure. As we honor Taylor on what would have been her 82nd birthday, let's explore her personal Astrology for insight about the beloved star.

Taylor was a legendary actress, model, entrepreneur, designer and humanitarian, and her Piscean influence flowed strongly throughout her entire birth chart -- spiritual, emotional and fantastical, the Hollywood icon embodied all that is compassionate Pisces, and more.

Elizabeth Taylor began her acting career at the age of nine, and at the age of 12, she so heavily campaigned for a role in National Velvet that her persistence paid off -- it was this role that shot her straight to fame. She dominated Hollywood's Golden Age, not only regarded as the most beautiful woman in the world but a two-time Academy Award winner and the highest paid actress of her time. Her Sun was conjunct Mars, which perfectly represents this vigor and passion for life and her career. She was assertive, energetic, active, courageous and vital -- yet her Sun in Pisces made her gentle and intuitive. Her physical drive expressed itself as sexuality and passion -- a victorious spirit and the will to win. Even with a long history of illnesses and health issues, Taylor always seemed to pull through with grace and beauty.

And about that sexuality and passion: with her Venus square Pluto, Taylor was an infamous serial wife, married eight times to seven husbands throughout the years of 1950 to 1996. Venus square Pluto allowed her to experience powerful emotional and sexual attractions, so much so that she felt little choice or control over her desires. While affection and devotion came first for Taylor, tumultuous times and painful relationships often formed once the passion subsided. 

Above all, Elizabeth Taylor was, again, a passionate Pisces. Her Sun, communication planet Mercury and action planet Mars were all in the sign of the Fish! The latter of which made her a passive fighter for causes she believed in, such as fundraising for her Elizabeth Taylor AIDS Foundation, helping to raise millions of dollars. She proved herself a savvy business woman with her infamous fragrance line -- one of the best selling lines of perfume in history (and not surprisingly, one of them is called "Passion"). She was a supporter of Kabbalah, as Mars in Pisces also breeds strong mystical or religious impulse. The Piscean influence simply rang true to her core. She had great empathy for others -- nonjudgmental and accepting regardless of flaws, mistakes or outward appearance -- most famously represented by her longtime friendship with Michael Jackson, who she remained extremely close with until his death in 2009.

Elizabeth Taylor's life, love and legacy will undoubtedly continue to be celebrated now and forever.
