Sean Penn - Natal Chart
Birth Chart Interpretations for Sean Penn.
Your Rising Sign
First let's take a quick look at your ascendant, or rising sign. Astrologers want to know what zodiac sign is rising at birth, since this gives a picture of the way you appear or come across to others.
You come across in a frank, candid, and scrupulously honest manner... honest of the point of harshness. You are open minded, tolerant and love to travel in the mind (philosophy, religion) and perhaps across the Earth as well.

The Lights: The Sun and Moon
At the time of our birth, the planets (through their configurations and relationships) tell us something about how things were when we were born. Each planet points to special qualities within us. Yet, of all the planets, the two most important planets to astrologers are the "lights," the Sun and the Moon. From where we stand here on Earth, the great shining Sun by day and the reflecting Moon at night are our constant companions. They have much to tell us as to where we have been and where we are headed.
The Sun: Your Self and Future
From the Sun comes light, that which draws us into life. The Sun represents all the changes we have not yet taken, that part of us that we have not yet experienced but are headed toward. The Sun represents our identity, or self, in that it is toward these that we are moving and developing. Thus, it also represents that which we will become: older people, authorities -- those we look toward, or up to. Our essence, or future. Teachers, gurus, and older (more experienced) people are represented by the Sun. The Sun is "hot stuff," those further up the road of life experience.
You are outgoing, overflowing, and very generous. Always the leader, if not the center of any group, you seldom fail to exhibit strong emotions. You are proud of yourself and of your accomplishments. Dramatic and just plain happy to be here, you are warm of heart, gregarious, outspoken, and independent.
Sun in Leo
Being successful in life is easy, for you have a built-in sense of how to approach and unravel even the most difficult problems. You have an instinct for justice and the law, and you always know how to approach a problem from just the right angle. This ability makes you a natural counselor or guide for others, in particular regarding vocational matters. Working with and helping older persons is also suggested.
Sun Trine Jupiter
You are unconventional, independent, and drawn to whatever is different and original in life. You hate being tied down with the drudgery of routine, preferring instead to keep your options open. You may find yourself involved in causes that go against tradition, revolutions of one kind or another -- social or political. Your friends are probably also eccentric, in particular those in authority, older persons, and men who are nonconformist. Communication, computers, electronics, and everything new-wave is what you star in.
Sun Conjunction Uranus
You get along well with older people, especially those in authority. It is easy for you to convey yourself to others, and you always manage to make a good appearance. You have an easy manner and find it easy to communicate with just about anyone.
Sun Trine Ascendant
The Moon: The Support System
Here is information about the kind of environment we create around us, our support system. It is not only the surroundings that we set up today, but the Moon also represents our past, the particular history and social background out of which we grew. Aside from our social background, the Moon governs all of the old habits that we have grown beyond. We tend to look down on, or back on, our Moon. It represents those experiences out of which we have come, all those younger souls who are unconscious, or "sub" conscious to our own level. This is why it is said that the Moon is a mystery planet, for it is both our parent and our child: our parent in that out of it we were born, our child in that we can't but respond to others who are now living as we once did.
You can sense and understand the mood and feelings of others, and are excellent at counseling and nursing. You are quite emotional, and have a natural sense of that which pleases, knowing the mood of the crowd. You can be overly protective (or protected), but are good at parenting and creating a home. Quite domestic.
Moon in Cancer
You have a natural appreciation for the past, personal as well as world history -- all that is traditional. You find it easy to work with music, color, fabric, and the arts -- whatever is beautiful and genial. You would make a superb decorator of homes and, in general, all kinds of environments. You enjoy moods and emotions (whatever is psychological), especially in a group setting. Younger people, the helpless, and the needy can always be found under your umbrella.
Moon Sextile Venus
Your approach to discipline and responsibilities does not exactly cater to the moods and feelings of others. You have little patience for sentiment, tradition, and history. Your lack of control over your own feelings can result in real arguments. One result is that you may not always have the support of those around you. You sometimes have to go it alone.
Moon Opposition Saturn
You have a built-in sense of what the public wants and can always come up with just the right image. You find it easy to work with the emotions and feelings of others, and with great imagination. Your sense of the ideal springs to life whenever other people are involved. A born arranger of atmospheres, you enjoy working with groups of people. You are also very creative when it comes to your home and surroundings.
Moon Trine Neptune
You have natural psychological ability, in particular when working with the public. You can handle emotional and personal issues (vulnerable areas) where angels fear to tread. People sense this about you and trust you with sensitive matters, inner worries, and questions of personal identity. You have a real mission and a sense of purpose.
Moon Sextile Pluto
You could find that you are neglecting either your home and family or your career (or both) due to your social and personal life. Relationships, working with other people, and making a good presentation. Home life is secondary.

The Inner Planets: Mercury and Venus
The planets Mercury and Venus have more to do with our internal and personal life than with life outside us. These inner planets are located between the orbit of the Earth and the Sun. We can look to qualities that are inside us. Venus indicates how we appreciate and measure our experience, how we value life. Mercury tells us something about how our mind works, how we think and communicate -- our intrinsic brightness.
Mercury: The Mind and Communication
Mercury is the light in our eyes, the ever-changing consciousness within us that moves from idea to idea. Thus Mercury has always represented thoughts, ideas, and the mental process in general. It governs not only ideas, but communications, too. Communications -- by phone, letter, spoken, or however -- are ruled by Mercury. Also thoughts, connections, phone wires, and everything that connects and conveys -- even conversations.
You are dynamic and always expressive in thought and speech -- dramatic. You appreciate your own ideas, and tend to be outgoing in speech and manner. Fresh. Warm. You put forth strong views and are hard to influence or change. Emotional and a good entertainer, you are louder than average and tend to exaggerate. You are a lover. There are always plenty of tears and laughter.
Mercury in Leo
You have a great love of the written and spoken word, and ideas in all their flavors are what you like best to work with. Your enthusiasm for mind, the intellect, and the world of ideas makes it easy for you to communicate these things to others. You would be a good teacher. You have no trouble putting your feelings into words, and what you say always carries a lot of content. You could make a fine entertainer and an excellent speaker.
Mercury Sextile Mars
You find talk of the other world, and mysticism in general, to be a real hassle. You struggle to keep this and any spiritual material at bay and, like your mind, down-to-earth and quite conventional. It may be hard for you to think about spiritual matters, much less express them in words or thoughts. You like your dreams neat and are troubled when thoughts of other lives and what-not intrude. You would rather not talk about it.
Mercury Square Neptune
Your mind is ever on communication, how you present yourself and come across with others. It is easy for you to express yourself in a crowd, and you are a real smoothie. Everything seems to work out for you when you are talking with others.
Mercury Trine Ascendant
Venus: Values and Discrimination
Venus rules our values and sense of appreciation. When we appraise or appreciate something, whether that be another person or a new car, this is Venus -- the sense of love and compassion we may feel. By the same token, this planet rules enjoyment too. Whether it be self-appreciation or just plain old decadent self-enjoyment by having a good time, this is Venus. When we go shopping or are on a spending spree, it is Venus that allows us to appreciate and value all the good things of life.
Finely wrought or overwrought? You have a fine sense of appreciation and are very attentive. You love to help out and take care of others, expressing a first-rate sense of compassion. You possess an almost infinite ability to respond to the needs and demands of others. Fragile, refined, you are perhaps too prudish.
Venus in Virgo
A born charmer with an innate love and appreciation for other people, especially children. A sense of color, of music and all of the arts -- the beautiful and the comfortable. Always welcome in a group, you are a connoisseur of things bright and kind.
Moon Sextile Venus
What you don't love is the parade of emotions -- directness from others. What you do love and appreciate may not be as clear to you as what you do not love. You are troubled by all that gets too pushy, physical, and gushy. About this you are clear. Sports, ordeals of bravery, and all that is too physical is objectionable. Given the world as it is and your predisposition, a certain amount of emotional tension is unavoidable.
Venus Square Mars
You could be an excellent teacher in areas requiring discipline and organization. You value order and place a high premium on hard work and effort. You like to get down to the bare bones, to what is essential. Whatever is most practical is best, and you appreciate things that are durable and long-lasting. You love truth, philosophy, law, and the like.
Venus Trine Saturn
You have the gift of working with others, helping them to sense and feel the unity of life. Your love of the spiritual and the eternal is clear to all who meet you. You love to solve the problems of the world, at least in words and images, and when you tell it, all are enchanted. Dreams and images are your stock and trade.
Venus Sextile Neptune
When you love, you love with energy and passion. You value personal contact, cutting through all the externals and getting to the heart of things. You understand and appreciate vulnerability and have no compunction about presenting your own sensitive spots to others. You enjoy working behind the scenes, getting at secret and hidden areas of the mind and psyche. Changes and transformative experiences are where you like to be most.
Venus Conjunction Pluto
Your love of family and home and lack of interest in external affairs (be they friends or work-related) needs to be noted and kept in balance.
