When celebrities turn bad, often in the full glare of the media spotlight, it’s a little like watching a slow motion car crash – we know we should turn away, but somehow, we just can’t. Could celebrity bad behavior be rooted in the stars? Does a celebrity’s star sign play a part in their meltdown? Yes, to a certain extent. Sun signs are only one small part of astrology, and the full picture is much more complex than that, but here’s our guide to the type of tantrums we can expect from celebs.
Capricorn is an authoritative kind of sign, and Capricorn people generally believe that they are in charge and answer to nobody. When Capricorn celebrities behave badly, there’s often an element of this at work, with the celebrity thinking that they are above the law or entitled to behave how they please. Jude Law is a typical example of this – not only did he have a much publicized affair with his children’s nanny, but he is widely considered to be quite arrogant by nature, and acts in a superior way. Having all of the answers is another Capricorn trait, and this one is illustrated well by Mel Gibson. Known for his ultra-conservative stance and his staunch traditional Catholic beliefs, Mel has been very outspoken in the past, holding some extreme views. He has been accused of anti-Semitism, particularly following the The Passion of the Christ, but he is largely unapologetic over his views – in this way, he exhibits some of the typical Capricorn gone bad traits of dogmatism and bigotry.
