EDIT 2: The movie will now open December 5th (which, obviously, will change the predictions below.)
First, English is not my native language, so I apologize for any mistakes I might make.
Second, I have no knowledge of Ben Barnes’ real birth time, that information is not available online.
In the 12 noon chart (the astrological chart most commonly used when one doesn’t have a proper time of birth) places his Leo Sun on the 10th house (people with such placement are really devoted to their careers) and most of his Libra planets on the 11th house, the house of friendship. However, without an accurate and Exact time of birth I cannot really say in which house his natal Sun falls and much less what is his Rising Sign nor his Moon Sign.
So, I picked another chart, one which can also give me information about his personality and path in life. I choose one placing his Sun exactly on the Rising sign and I also choose equal houses (meaning, starting with the first house or the Rising sign at 27 degrees of Leo, every other house starts at 27 degrees of the following sign, so the second house is at 27 degrees of Virgo, the third at 27 degrees of Libra, and so on). That’s the chart you can see below, which provides me with certain type of information, although leaving me still with doubts. So, again, I cannot be sure of my interpretation. Plus, this is done for entertainment purposes only! I must, of course, add that I have no wish to hurt Ben Barnes or offend him in any way.
On to the chart.
On to the chart.
Here you can see that most of his natal placements fall below the horizon (meaning, they occupy the houses from 1 to 7, in this case, going from Leo to Aquarius), what would certainly explain an introverted nature. The Moon here is at 25º Aries (side note, his Draconic Sun, also known as the soul’s Sun, is at 25º Aries. So his soul came to earth with the intention of becoming famous and popular - draconic Sun is conjunct, possibly, natal Moon). I choose 5:59 AM to come up with this chart. However, if Ben was born after Twelve Noon, his natal Moon would probably be in Taurus (a much more conservative sign really concerned with stability and does not like taking risks). Somehow, to me, an Aries Moon (showing a fighting spirit) seems to fit better, particularly because some movies he’s done involves combating, fighting and battles - all of a very Aries nature. This Moon is also placed in the 8th house - need for privacy of intimate affairs - and rules the 12th house (again need for privacy, but also a secretive nature and personality. Ben finds, as well, necessary to, from time to time, back away from the public spotlight and spend time alone. I think he has a tendency to keep his feelings and emotions hidden). But, again, I insist: I don’t actually know his Moon sign, so this might not be an accurate interpretation. Another thing is, with the 5:59 AM chart, the Sun is at 27º05’ Leo. This matters because, on December 2014, the progressed Sun will still be on the final degrees of Virgo - which would mean another 6 months to the final chapters of this part of his life to complete and finalize, before an all-new chapter begins. However, if Ben Barnes was born around Twelve Noon or after, then is Sun would be progressed, December 12th 2014, at 0º Libra - which is a big event (progressed Sun changing signs). So, please take note of my limitations. If anyone knows his exact time of birth (hour and minutes), please let me know: firstname.lastname@example.org (and thank you).
I believe this particular night, during the movie premier in the USA, will be a very happy one for Ben Barnes. Outstanding, I would even venture say. And why? Well, let’s look at the astrological planetary transits. On December 12th, transiting Sagittarius Sun along with transiting Mercury, are conjunct his natal Neptune: it’s a magical night, a glamorous event; I would say someone of his family might be there with him to share the joy, probably a sibling (Mercury signifies brothers and sisters, along with other meanings). There will be lots of reporters and photographers.
Where’s the transiting Moon? She’s right next to Jupiter, both at 22º Leo, very close to his natal Leo Sun. This Speaks of emotional satisfaction, great joy and happiness. He’s happy! Plus, his family (Moon) may possibly be expanding (Jupiter). Perhaps a birth? It could be several possibilities: he may become a father or an uncle or someone close in his family could be marrying (or even he). There are several possibilities. Not that the transiting Moon has such a great influence, however, Jupiter in transit is trining (positive aspect) his Natal Moon. The transiting Moon and Jupiter form a trine not only with natal Moon but also with Natal Neptune: a Fire Grand Trine. Luck, luck, luck! A golden opportunity, new doors opening up. It could mean career opportunities - and just because of this movie (God Only Knows). His career, and the choices he has, is expanding into new heights. So, summarizing: joy, luck, expansion and happiness. There will be an immense emotional satisfaction regarding his professional and personal life.
All of this could possibly mean hard work: transiting Saturn is at 28º Scorpio, squaring his natal Sun and about to leave a close conjunction with natal Uranus (26º Scorpio). I would say that prior hard work and labored efforts paid off or are beginning to pay off, and the way the movie is received by everyone (particularly the public) will be proof of it. The transiting Saturn is leaving Scorpio and about to enter Sagittarius, so it’s still squaring (a “negative” aspect) his natal Leo Sun which makes me think he might be judging himself too harshly, like: “Do I deserve this? Am I worthy?” Or, if new career opportunities do appear due to the movie’s success, he could be thinking: “Will I be capable of doing it? Do I have the necessary talent, skills and emotional depth to accept this new project?” Even though this is a very joyful and successful occasion, part of Ben will find difficult to believe all the hype or even that he is deserving of it. Some self-worth issues might be popping out (and I hope he ignores such thoughts). Venus in transit will be in Capricorn, squaring his natal Libra Venus (denotes a charming guy) - which pretty much tells me the same.
Jupiter in transit squares his natal Uranus - another aspect which speaks of a “golden opportunity happening quite suddenly” - but because it’s a square he should not be impulsive.
Moving on: transiting Venus in Capricorn (5th house) trines natal Mercury in the 1st house: everyone will be saying only nice things to him (and vice-versa) and it won’t be overlay flashy or exaggerated speech nor vacuous words. Whoever approaches Ben to talk to him will mean every word they say (stuff like: “Oh, you’re so talented, you did a great job.”). I believe he’ll be puzzled by such kind words, even confused, and won’t trust them entirely (transiting Neptune is fogging up his very rational Virgo Mercury with an opposition).
Uranus in transit will be trining (from the 8th house) his natal Psyche (located in the 12th house). Psyche is one of the love asteroids. Plus, transiting Eros (another love asteroid) both sextiles transiting Uranus and opposes natal Psyche. So maybe a bolt out of the blue? A “coup de foudre”? An attraction at first sight? (I don’t want to say love because I think he takes love seriously - he has Venus and Saturn conjunct in Libra - , but something around that theme.) Maybe an instant fascination with someone whom he meets that day? I don’t know, I really have no idea, this is just one possible explanation. Another one is that the crowd, the public, might be thinking (probably shouting): “Oh my God, he’s so sexy!”
If Ben Barnes was born around noon or after I believe that December 2014 might mark the beginning of a new life. What type of life? I don’t know, but probably more focused on relationships (a need to find and have a committed bond with a partner). This could also apply to work connections. So there’ll be more commitment and a need to focus on fairness, responsibility and maturity. New horizons will be opening up. If, however, his birth time is around 5 AM, this new life will probably be happening in the middle of 2015.
I wish him the best of luck and much success.
