He's made a fortune and won numerous awards for his work in films such as Ed Wood, Sweeney Todd: the Demon Barber of Fleet Street, Don Juan DeMarco and the Pirates of the Caribbean series.
Since an early marriage and divorce, this Gemini has been engaged to a string of glamourous women, but has so far avoided the altar. By all reports, he has been faithful to each one, and is a responsible and involved father for his children. His birth time is not known so his Moon’s degree cannot be calculated. But we can be sure his Moon is in Capricorn, which can make one cautious and circumspect in matters of love. However, fidelity is important to him, - his loyal love nature extends to anyone he considers family. A select few, to be sure, but he sees to it that they are well provided for.
Although his fame has come from moviemaking, he's also a musician, having recorded with The Pogues' Shane McGowan, Oasis, and his own band P, among other projects. This is well in keeping with the dualistic nature of his Gemini sun. Gemini also rules siblings, and over the years Mr. Depp has kept his sister close by as his personal manager.

Persistence pays off, even for rebels!
