His chart’s astrodyne report
His dominant planet–key decanate profile
The Sun and Moon in his chart are in the third decanate of Gemini so his I think individuality and mentality are defined by reason.
Smollett is mentally restless – a thinker who relies chiefly upon reason – and his thoughts move in the direction of big events. But his heavy reliance on deductive reasoning tends to narrow his field of vision and encourages self-centeredness. He can avoid this destructive tendency by elevating his thoughts and developing idealism in a worthwhile cause outside of himself.
The ascendant is in the second decanate of Gemini so his I think personality is defined by fidelity.
It’s an outstanding feature of his decanate profile and Smollett is faithful to his companions and high ideals. He’ll give a personal best performance when he champions a progressive cause and works to get it acknowledged and accepted.
Mercury in house 12 (self-undoing, disappointment and crime) is in the first decanate of Gemini so his I think way of perceiving and communicating is defined by intuition. Smollett is a very clever thinker whose instant insights can perceive all the aspects of a problem or proposal and sequence them into their proper order.
Mercury the cusp ruler of house 1 in house 12 can see him restricted and isolated – even imprisoned. He thinks a lot about his secret life, sorrows and disappointments. He has secret enemies who can do him harm.
With all three Gemini decanates active his restlessness and tendency to scatter energy is a big problem.
The Moon – planet of curiosity, music and notoriety – is his dominant planet and he’s adaptable, impressionable and likes being before the public.
Inconstancy and fickleness are a big problem and he needs to develop perseverance, stick to a single endeavor and trust his intuitions rather than his objective thoughts.
The Sun-Moon conjunction is trine (luck) Jupiter – planet of good fortune – in house 6 (work); and opposition Neptune – planet of schemes and dramatic talent – in house 7 (his relations with partners and the public).
Pluto in house 5 conciliates the Sun-Moon-Neptune opposition and his stage and film work (house 5) allows him to mitigate the high-stress discord that he’s inclined to attract in his relations with partners.
With 6 planets and the ascendant and Midheaven in air signs Smollett lives on a mental plane and his nature lacks emotion and practicality.
Jussie Smollett became an actor and singer.
He began his acting career as a child, appearing in the films The Mighty Ducks (1992) and Rob Reiner’s North (1994).
In 2014, he was cast as Jamal Lyon—a gay musician who struggles to gain the approval of his father – in the Fox drama series Empire.
In February 2015, he signed a recording contract with Columbia Records; and in March 2015, he released his debut album, Sum of My Music, through his own label, Music of Sound.
Smollett then made national and international headlines when he said that he was attacked (Mars) in the early morning of January 29, 2019 in a hate crime (Mars-Pluto) in Chicago’s, Streeterville neighborhood.
Democrat presidential candidates Kamala Harris and Cory Booker both described the attack as an attempted modern-day lynching. And President Trump when asked about the attack said ‘I think that’s horrible.’
Then, on February 20, 2019, Smollett was indicted (house 7), for disorderly conduct consisting of allegedly paying two Nigerian-American brothers to stage a fake (Neptune) hate crime assault on him and filing a false (Neptune) police report.
The Chicago PD believed that he staged the attack as a publicity stunt (Midheaven) meant to further his career, as he was not satisfied with his salary (house 2).
On February 22 he was suspended from Empire and won’t be in the final two episodes of the latest series.
On March 26, 2019 Smollett’s defense team (house 7) reached a deal with prosecutors, in which all charges were dropped in return for him performing community service and forfeiting his $10,000 bond (house 2).
On March 27, it was announced that the FBI (house 12) would be investigating as to why the charges were dismissed.
On April 12, 2019, the city of Chicago filed a lawsuit (house 7) in the Circuit Court of Cook County against Smollett for the cost incurred investigating the alleged attack, specified in the complaint as $130,105.15.
