Seventy-four year-old actress Katharine Hepburn wins the Best Actress Academy Award for her role in On Golden Pond. It is her fourth Oscar victory, setting a new record for the most awarded to an actor. Busy working with a touring Broadway company in Washington, she is not in attendance for the Oscar ceremony, as was the case with her previous three wins.

Transiting Jupiter is conjunct Hepburn’s natal Ascendant in Scorpio, opposite natal Mercury in Taurus, reflecting her absence for being occupied elsewhere. Transiting Mars retrograde in Libra is opposite the transiting Sun in Aries, square natal Jupiter and Neptune in Cancer, and natal Uranus and Mars in Capricorn, signifying exalted status for an unprecedented achievement.
