Oprah Winfrey is a world famous personality. Her success like anyone else’s has been attributed to the position of stars in her horoscope. Astrology has its own ways of taking hold on a person’s life. Mercury rules communication and the sharing of ideas. In order to host a successful talk show, one has to have some serious Mercury in their chart. This includes strong positioning of the planet Mercury itself, and an emphasis on the Mercury signs, Gemini and Virgo. It’s also very helpful to include the higher octave of Mercury, Uranus and its sign Aquarius. Oprah Winfrey’s astrology chart has every one of these factors. This is a lady who knows how to keep a conversation going.
Oprah’s Mercury is in the 6th house, in Aquarius. This alters the expected Mercurial energy from Gemini to Virgo, since the 6th house is Virgo’s house. That little Mercury, has to carry a lot of weight in this horoscope. Aquarius is a demanding sign to have one’s Mercury placed in, carrying the responsibility of a vision for the future which must be communicated. This is the role of Aquarius. It is definitely compatible with Mercury, but has a far greater range. Oprah’s Mercury energy is overwhelmed from another direction as well.
This Jupiter/Mercury effect bounces around the chart like the sphere in a pin-ball machine. It shows up yet again through Oprah’s Virgo ascendant. This is a position which has a deep and abiding need to help, to be useful in some way. It also has impossibly high standards for itself, usually attempting to cleanse itself of “impurities” which it had nothing to do with creating. According to Oprah’s biography, she was an illegitimate baby, in a time and location where that had a far greater stigma than it does today. This perceived “imperfection” must be compensated for, frequently by performing work that is beyond the ken of most of usmortals. Not only must the work performed be perfect, but it must have a higher degree of perfection than we normally would conceive of. Also, Oprah was repeatedly molested sexually as a child, as shown by her 12th house Pluto. Like most sexual assault victims, the chart shows a need for purging a nebulous sense of guilt. Naturally she “shouldn’t” feel guilty for such a thing, but the emotions don’t obey the rules all that well.
Her most elevated planet, Jupiter, is in Gemini. This is the sign of its fall. That means that Gemini is the sign which opposes the natural sign that Jupiter rules, Sagittarius. When Mercurial energy is funneled through the planet of expansion, Jupiter, one can sometimes have too many words. They then have to go out far and wide, to as many people as possible. Up at the top of the chart, one naturally is recognized by this power. Jupiter is opposed by the Moon in Sagittarius, giving a homey, comfortable feel to Oprah’s communication and incidentally, can make keeping a girlish figure a major production. This is due to the “expansive” nature of Jupiter and Sagittarius.
