Sean Connery
by Barney Battles
For many, Sean Connery will always be the definitive James Bond - suave, sophisticated and with a smouldering sense of danger about him. He was voted Sexiest Man of the Century in 1999 and announced his retirement from acting in 2004. Connery is notoriously protective of his private life, but his astrological signs may give is insight into one of Hollywood’s most enduring icons.

Connery was born on the 25th August 1930, making him a Virgo born in the Chinese Year of the Horse. In some senses, it seems that he was born to play James Bond. His Western astrological profile is one of cool courage. Connery was born under the sign of the Virgin, with the Sun in conjunction with Neptune and Pluto in ascension. Pluto’s influence is one of power and strategy, usually associated with politicians. This could have had a strong bearing on Connery’s affiliation with the Scottish National Party in later life. Connery is a fiercely proud Scotsman and has stated his desire to see the country become independent. Indeed, he has sworn never to live there again until that is the case.

Idols and heroes

Neptune is the symbol of idols and heroes - things that Connery has come to represent to his millions of fans around the world. When Neptune is in conjunction with the Sun, another aspect is thrown into play; a connection to dreams, fantasies and alternate realities. It seems that both Pluto and Neptune governed Connery in his decision to become an actor. He was pursuing a career in football when the strategist in him realised that footballers’ life spans do not continue much beyond the age of 30: “I was already 23. I decided to become an actor and it turned out to be one of my more intelligent moves.”

Virgo is the cool, calm sign of the zodiac, defined by their ability to be rational and practical, even under pressure. As Bond, Connery certainly radiates a measured intensity and when he is in the public eye this quality informs his carriage and demeanour. However, this disciplined exterior is borne out of a desire for perfection. Virgos are extremely critical of that which does not meet with their exacting standards. This desire to attain the unattainable means that many Virgos are burdened with a sharp temper - something that Connery has become known for, especially in later life. Indeed, it may be the knowledge that perfection is an impossibility that has caused him to eschew the film industry. Apparently, he was so disappointed with his last films and so disenchanted with “Hollywood idiots”, that he vowed never to return to the silver screen.

Underlying currents of self-doubt

As a Horse, Connery’s cool facade will mask an underlying current of self-doubt. Horses are cunning rather than intelligent and this self-knowledge makes them feel insecure. That is not to say that Horses are stupid, but rather that they rely on their wits and instinct as opposed to academic facts. Coming from a working class family, Connery left school at the age of 13 to start a milk round. While he had little choice other than to leave education, it may be that his lack of academic grounding may prey on Sir Sean. This also could be another contributing factor to his quick temper; Horses may appear solid, stable animals but when they kick out, it is a powerful and sudden act.

Horses are also defined by their desire for independence, which often manifests itself as nonconformity. Becoming an actor would not have been the most conventional of career choices for someone of Connery’s era and background. Most of his friends would have gone on to labouring jobs or into the armed forces. Connery’s decision was partly informed by a duodenal ulcer that prevented a career in the Navy, but also will have fulfilled the equine fantasies of his Eastern star sign.

A strong instinct for survival

Both of Connery’s star signs are imbued with a strong instinct for survival; the Horse can turn tail and run, while the maiden is driven to succeed, no matter what the cost. Sir Sean will have relied on both these qualities during his early career and, perhaps surprisingly, in his later career too. As he started out, Connery will have listened to the Virgin, making the decision to succeed against the odds. In the latter stages of his career, the Horse will have informed him to leave the industry and maintain his independence.

Perhaps the most surprising aspect of Connery’s astrological signs is that they are both blessed with an acute sensitivity when it comes to ‘reading’ other people. While this may not be something normally associated with the cold-hearted womaniser James Bond, many other of his screen performances have revealed him to be an actor of profound depth, conveying a range of emotions with minimal effort.

As Sir Sean enters his ninth decade, he must be wary of his health – particularly problems associated with the eyes and intestines. Virgo is particularly vulnerable to stress-related conditions, partly as the result of the continual turmoil bubbling away beneath that smooth, suave exterior.
