Thirty-eight year-old actress Sally Field wins her second Best Actress Academy Award for her role in Places in the Heart. Her heartfelt acceptance speech, in which she references a line of dialogue from her first Oscar winning performance, Norma Rae (“you like me”), will be remembered publicly in both praise and mockery.

The transiting Sun is conjunct Field’s natal Moon in Aries, signifying an earnest and unfiltered expression of emotion. Transiting Mercury retrograde and Venus retrograde in Aries are opposite the natal Ascendant in Libra, resonating with natal Mercury post-retrograde and Venus retrograde in Sagittarius, indicating criticism and scrutiny from others due to misunderstandings or miscommunication.
