Astrology and Rising StarsJim Carrey white cartoon sketch on purple stucco background.

Thirty-two year-old comedic actor Jim Carrey begins filming his role as Lloyd Christmas in Dumb and Dumber. To play the role, he had a cap removed from his front tooth, which had been accidentally chipped when he was a child. His first hit movie, Ace Ventura: Pet Detective is a recent surprise success, and his next, The Mask, will soon be released.

Transiting Uranus is stationing retrograde conjunct Carrey’s natal Sun in Capricorn, indicating rapidly rising star status, following years of struggling in obscurity. Transiting Neptune is conjunct natal Venus in Capricorn, indicating the revealing of a well-concealed physical disfigurement.

Nelson Mandela: Venus Cycles and the Freedom Struggle

I usually don’t like to post topical subjects in my astrology work. However, I’ve been sitting on this research I did on the life of Nelson Mandela and Venus retrograde transits for some time, and his recent passing as transiting Venus is about to station retrograde in Capricorn prompted me to compose my thoughts.
