Daniel Radcliffe, Maturing Magician
NewsScope, November 17, 2002
Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets earned vast sums in foreign markets over the last few weeks, enough to push the second installment of the Hogwarts kids over the $500 million mark worldwide. Daniel Radcliffe, who has grown 13 inches since the first film, hinted that he may call it quits after the third one, The Prisoner of Azkaban.
Daniel Radcliffe was born a dramatic Leo (July 23, 1989; London; time unknown) with Mercury and the love planets Venus and Mars also in Leo. These four planets enhance his radiant self-confidence, allowing him to perform well and thrive at the center of attention. The Sun and Mars in Leo are particularly suited to playing the hero, both in the movies and in real life.
One of the outstanding features of this horoscope is Mercury's connection to all the outer planets, especially the links (by quincunx, or 150 degree aspect) to Uranus, Saturn and Neptune in Capricorn. This epochal triple conjunction was so influential during 1989 that it brought down the Berlin Wall and the Soviet Empire. Mercury, associated with thoughts and communications, is greatly empowered by these outer planets.
As Harry Potter Radcliffe learns, as do all his fans, that the mind is far more powerful than most people realize. Through imagination (Neptune), discipline (Saturn), technique (Uranus) and desire (Pluto) the mind is able to conjure up whatever it focuses on. This astrological profile tells us what Radcliffe already knew, and said when he was first selected to play the part, "I've always believed in magic!"
