Multi award winning actor, screenwriter, director and film producer, Denzel Washington was born when the Sun was in Capricorn. True to his sign, his career has spanned decades starting with TV commercials all the way through major blockbuster movies where he won Academy Awards for movies “Glory,” and “Training Day.”
Capricorn likes to make long term plans and has ambition to last a lifetime. With Mercury, planet of communication also in this sign and sitting right next to the Sun it seems Mr Washington is a methodical and practical thinker. His thoughts and speech are well thought through so rehearsing lines for his blockbusters are probably a breeze.
He has been married to his wife, Pauletta since 1983 and they have four children. Capricorn likes a steady home life from which they can build their career but it’s the influence of Venus and Saturn which help support this long term marriage. Venus, planet of love and Saturn, planet of responsibility form a conjunction in Scorpio. Anyone with this aspect takes love seriously and many can be found in long term relationships. They may not be overly demonstrative with their affections but they make up for it in spades with their reliable and steady presence.
That said, Venus in Scorpio is one steamy influence! Individuals with this placement are sizzling seducers and when we see Denzel Washington on the big screen we know just how this energy plays out for him. As Venus is right next to Saturn this can put a dampener on things but it can also channel and focus this sexy energy in the right direction for a more practical outcome…starring in blockbuster movies!
Venus is forming a trine to Mars in Pisces. This makes for a sweet and thoughtful person in matters of the heart. His wife sure is one lucky lady as Mars in Pisces is tender and sensitive. Some people with this influence can get caught up in the romance of love and life. Perhaps this is why they have been married for such a long time as he has a mix of realism and idealism when it comes to his heart.
Venus and Mars are part of a grand water trine. Both of these planets form a trine to Jupiter and Uranus in Cancer. Anyone with this much watery energy is someone who is intuitive, perceptive and instinctive. They usually trust their “gut” to make decisions. This would be especially so with business planets Jupiter and Saturn thrown into the planetary mix. This cosmic combination of influences makes for one sensitive and smart person.
