Lifestyle column: the Zodiac at the Cannes Film Festival

The Zodiac at the Cannes Film Festival: with astrology, it is possible to decipher our behaviour or to get a glimpse of the future. This is a theory which cannot be systematically tested. On the other hand, one may wish to follow an easier path, which puts into practice the principles listed in astrology textbooks. In a way, this is precisely the type of practical exercises that we suggest in this Lifestyle column.

We recommend that you follow our advice with both a light and observing mind. Beyond entertainment, the aim is to understand how each of us behaves in various fields; thus, we can better define and fathom, by deduction, how we have developed our natal predispositions. In addition, why wouldn't we be able to guess the talent(s) which we could harness in the future, according to our astrological profile.

The following information is given for signs in their purest form. Depending on the case, it is advisable that you check your planetary dominant or the sign of your Ascendant, the position, quality and aspects of the significators of the area involved, and if applicable, the position of the planets associated with it. For instance, for family affairs, examine the 4th House and its ruler, as well the Moon; for romance, examine the 5th House and its ruler, as well as Venus, etc.

The large number of books we have read, and more particularly, the experience we have drawn from the study of thousands of charts, urge us to be cautious. However, we thought that it may be interesting to provide a few concrete indications, which will turn out to be accurate, quite often.

Aries, Aries rising, Mars dominant, or strong 1st House

Cannes Film Festival for Aries, Aries rising, Mars dominant, or strong 1st House

When people mention Cannes Film Festival, "competition" is the word that immediately comes to your mind. You cannot help it, although you know that this is about films – therefore about art – and that there is no accounting for taste. Nevertheless, you cannot prevent yourself from taking side. You get enthusiastic about a masterpiece, an actress or an actor, necessarily exceptional according to you. If this is usually the result of an intellectual process, as far as you are concerned, you need some action, albeit you have nothing against very personal movies. Have Barton Fink or Sailor and Lula impressed you? This year, you may be intrigued by Louder than bombs, because of its title. In a few cases, you also imagine yourself in some sort of ego trip. Why not try to be invited at Cannes, climb the Palace staircase and take a selfie? Be careful, because in 2015, the direction of the Festival has decided to limit this mania.

You will find on Astrotheme thousands of natal charts of celebrities who have the Sun in Aries, Aries rising, or Mars dominant. The former are sorted in popularity order, whereas the latter are sorted according to the strongest dominant. Since each planet also rules a House – sometimes two houses – you may want to also look at charts having a strong 1st House.

Taurus, Taurus rising, Venus dominant, or strong 2nd House

Cannes Film Festival for Taurus, Taurus rising, Venus dominant, or strong 2nd House

You are fond of Cannes, because you find there year after year the strong values that are planted somewhere in your mental representation of cinema. You will be happy to know that Catherine Deneuve will open the show with Standing tall, and that the Coen brothers, regulars of the Croisette and many times rewarded, will preside over the jury. You also enjoy remembering the great moments of the Festival, for instance the victory of Roberto Benigni with Life is beautiful, and Jane Campion with her subtle The piano. Or outstanding milestones such as the screening of Rome, open city by Roberto Rossellini, in 1946, when the Festival was created. You still smile when you think of the starlets who used to undress with a certain innocence like Bardot, or the girl who leapt on Robert Mitchum. This year, you are eager to see Youth by the Italian Paolo Sorrentino, just to remain in the same tender and nostalgic spirit.

Cannes Film Festival for Gemini, Gemini rising, Mercury dominant, or strong 3rd House

Cannes Film Festival? You managed to get before anyone else the list of the official selection and the unavoidable news such as the names of those who will be at the opening ceremony and those who will finally not attend. There is no danger that you will miss any information, whether it is about the event itself or the gossips surrounding it. You knew that Sean Penn, who had been approached for his film, would not be ready on time, but that Gus Van Sant has his chance. You are glad to witness the debut in Cannes of Stéphane Brizé with The measure of a man, the type of melodrama presenting the kind of social critic you sometimes enjoy. You rejoice that a woman like Valérie Donzelli is among the directors and competing with a scenario which was written for François Truffaut but was never shot, Marguerite & Julien. Throughout the two weeks, you will stay on the alert, so as to get wind of the slightest secrets about Cannes.

Cancer, Cancer rising, the Moon dominant, or strong 4th House

Cannes Film Festival for Cancer, Cancer rising, the Moon dominant, or strong 4th House

Do not yield to nostalgia, but cultivate it! Yes, Cannes has changed a great deal. Screenings do not take place any more in the ancient Palace, nicer than the current bunker. Moreover, many personalities are there mainly to show off and to sign business contracts. The era when Elizabeth Taylor arrived with all her suitcases and kept both photographers and crowds waiting is over. The days when Paul Newman, Monica Vitti, Princess Diana, or Michael Jackson and all other mythic stars were respectfully admired. Nonetheless, you will appreciate the fact that in 2015, The little prince by Mark Osborne, a French animated cartoon, is included in the programme, even though you regret that it is not in competition. No need to say that the plot, inspired by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry's novella, as well as the style, all in finesse and nostalgia, perfectly match your values. And you will be glad to know that Woody Allen is attending Cannes although he seeks no prize.

Leo, Leo rising, the Sun dominant, or strong 5th House

Cannes Film Festival for Leo, Leo rising, the Sun dominant, or strong 5th House

Thinking of Cannes Film Festival is enough to get you excited. You find everything fascinating, absolutely everything. You know who stays in which palace, and more importantly, where the most exceptional parties are held. You will not miss the amfAR gala, this year at the Eden Roc, in the presence of the queen Sharon Stone as usual, but also of committed and unavoidable stars: Natalie Portman, Isabella Rossellini, Milla Jovovich or Diane Kruger. You may deem that in Cannes, it is more important to shine than to win. There is a crucial moment, the ritual mounting of red-carpeted stairs that you avidly watch on your TV screen. And if some day, you had the opportunity to be part of it – the entire ceremonial, endless preparations, photographers jostling, and perhaps a selfie with Thierry Frémaux – you would not say no. Regarding the films of 2015, it is The Lobster and its Hollywood casting which keeps your attention.

Virgo, Virgo rising, Mercury dominant, or strong 6th House

Cannes Film Festival for Virgo, Virgo rising, Mercury dominant, or strong 6th House

More than an unquestioning fan, you are a critic through and through. Not because you want to harm artists, but probably because you are obsessed by perfection. At a pinch, you are doing them a good service as your eyes peer at the slightest details, looking for anachronisms as well as for good lines. You are very interested in "Un certain regard", the out-of-competition selection presenting films which are quite different from those in competition, and its jury composed of film critics precisely. Since you are an erudite, you remember that new talents such as George Lucas, Ken Loach, the Dardenne brothers, or Spike Lee were discovered in this category. This year, the selection promises to be exceptionally good, with the films of Philippe Garrel, Arnaud Despléchin, or Miguel Gomes. In brief, the screenings of the out-of competition movies are just as good as those of the in competition selection, except for the glamour, on which you are not too keen.

Libra, Libra rising, Venus dominant, or strong 7th House

Cannes Film Festival for Libra, Libra rising, Venus dominant, or strong 7th House

You are always fond of nice love stories, and you are aware that many were born during Cannes Film Festival. You still have in mind the most incredible of all, the meeting between Grace Kelly and Prince Rainier. It was the same movie which drew your attention, whether you appreciated it or not. In any case, this event has everything required to make you happy. Not only does it attract the most glamorous stars of the world, but it is on the Croisette that the pulse of the planet beats. This year again, you cannot wait to admire the beautiful Sophie Marceau or the ever-fashionable Sienna Miller, both members of the jury, or Lambert Wilson, who will have the occasion to wear his dinner suit once more, in his capacity as Master of Ceremony. You are impatient to discover the interpretation of a classic Shakespeare story, Macbeth, by the British Justin Kurzel.

Scorpio, Scorpio rising, Pluto dominant, or strong 8th House

Cannes Film Festival for Scorpio, Scorpio rising, Pluto dominant, or strong 8th House

Cannes Film Festival? You like it when it is placed under the sign of provocation or even lewdness. Why not? You recall Maurice Pialat, who received his award for Under the sun of Satan and retorted to those who booed him that he did not like them either. Or Quentin Tarantino giving the finger with Pulp fiction. You adore stories involving quite disturbing sexuality like Blue is the warmer colour. Otherwise, you think that people would get terribly bored. What a pain in the neck, all the glitz and the avalanche of good intentions... In 2015, it is perhaps impossible to guess what the next scandal might be. Who knows? Even though you are indifferent to bad taste, you who are a cynicism adept, you expect hard-hitting films, both literally and figuratively. This year, roaring Mad Max: Fury road by George Miller has everything required to captivate you.

The former are sorted in popularity order, whereas the latter are sorted according to the strongest dominant. Since each planet also rules a House – sometimes two houses – you may want to also look at charts having a strong 8th House.

Sagittarius, Sagittarius rising, Jupiter dominant, or strong 9th House

Cannes Film Festival for Sagittarius, Sagittarius rising, Jupiter dominant, or strong 9th House

You consider that Cannes Film Festival must be at the service of cinema in the entire world. You look forward to discovering the numerous Asian directors who are on the Croisette this year. Indeed, you impatiently wait for Jia Zhangke, a regular visitor of Cannes who is back with Mountains may depart. You are easy to please, and while you enjoy exotic discoveries, you have nothing against established stars: Tale of tales with Salma Hayek and Vincent Cassel has started to arouse your curiosity. You also expect a lot from the American Gus Van Sant, who shot The sea of trees in Japan, with Matthew McConaughey, Ken Watanabe, and Naomi Watts. Lastly, to recover from your cravings for faraway lands, you will attend cocktail parties, on the spot or in images.

Capricorn, Capricorn rising, Saturn dominant, or strong 10th House

Cannes Film Festival for Capricorn, Capricorn rising, Saturn dominant, or strong 10th House

Since you are very fond of history, you will be glad that this year Ingrid Bergman is in the seat of honour thanks to the 2015 programme. As it is well known, what you find most interesting during the Festival is its professional aspects rather than the celebrities' activities. In your opinion, the cinema remains a market, and this yearly meeting offers you the opportunity to understand what works, which countries have the best representation – currently France, Italy, Asia – and who are the most bankable stars. Although you are content just to be an ordinary spectator with nothing particular at stake, you may prefer meaningful stories. Austerity and lengthy passages never bore you. Wong Kar-wai, often acclaimed in Cannes, and his 2046, or Winter Sleep, the austere 2014 Palme d'Or, have convinced you with its snowy landscapes and the by-the-fireside style of its dialogues. What about now? You certainly do not want to make prognoses, because you are far too serious. But you look forward to see Our little sister by Hirokazu Kore-eda, a regular visitor of Cannes.

Aquarius, Aquarius rising, Uranus dominant, or strong 11th House

Cannes Film Festival for Aquarius, Aquarius rising, Uranus dominant, or strong 11th House

You may enjoy a film on a societal topic like Standing tall by Emmanuelle Bercot, promoted by Catherine Deneuve. This type of film for the opening, this is quite unusual! And females are seldom granted this honour in the sometimes misogynous realm of cinema. Mia Madre, by Nanni Moretti, a film-maker who wears more than one hat and explores such various genres as drama, satire, and activism, may appeal to you. Needless to say that, whereas you do not mind missing the mounting of the stairs, you are very interested in the selection of "Un certain regard". Even though Marion Cotillard is a consensual star, you focus mainly on her cooperation with Chopard on a collection of eco-friendly jewels. If one really has ethics, then one ought to take advantage of the Festival's big names.

Pisces, Pisces rising, Neptune dominant, or strong 12th House

Cannes Film Festival for Pisces, Pisces rising, Neptune dominant, or strong 12th House

If you were to define cinema, you would probably say the art of making people dream. Therefore you are one of the fans of the Croisette rendez-vous with its traditions, and above all, with its stars clad in marvellous dresses. While you appreciate the aestheticism and the glamour of the gathering, you immensely enjoy the pleasures of watching a film. A tumultuous love story such as My king, told by Maïwenn, may enchant you. In addition, you are awaiting a top quality casting in the film by Guillaume Nicloux, Valley of love, with Isabelle Huppert and Gérard Depardieu. It may make you shed a few tears, you who are so sensitive... It is true that you have a predilection for romantic plots, whether in real life or on screen. In this regard, Cannes Film Festival has always fully satisfied you.
