It's hard to believe, but it's true: Brad Pitt is one of the youngest in the "baby boomer" generation, but he's still hitting the half-century mark this December.
So why are we calling it a "fiery" 50? That's because Brad Pitt is a double Sagittarius -- a Fire sign known for being adventurous, curious, energetic, reckless, wild and free.
We can see evidence of these traits in his life, from the variety of roles he's taken as an actor to the variety of women he's loved -- and left, naturally. Sagittarius is not known for staying put. If you don't believe us, go ahead and ask Juliette Lewis, Gwyneth Paltrow or Jennifer Aniston.
Pitt's current leading lady, Gemini Angelina Jolie, may have what it takes to tame this fiery beast, however. Not only is she enough of a wild-child herself to keep Pitt's attention, but together the two have made life into an adventure in film, parenting and traveling internationally for social causes.
It's also rumored that Jolie bought Pitt a small, heart-shaped island on a lake outside of New York City for his 50th birthday. What better gift for a man who seeks adventure than his own island?! Well played, Angelina, well played.
In honor of Brad Pitt's 50th birthday, let's take a look at his complete Astrology birth chart for a few more clues about what makes him such a versatile actor, loving partner and responsible father of six -- in spite of his fiery Sagittarius ways.
William Bradley Pitt was born at 6:31 a.m. on December 18, 1963 in Shawnee, Okla. Brad Pitt's Astrology birth chart reveals he has a Sagittarius Sun and Sagittarius Rising, making him a fiery double-Sagittarius. But hang on -- get this: Brad Pitt has four key planets in earthy Capricorn!
Pitt's Moon, which rules emotions; Venus, which rules love; Mars, which rules action; and Mercury, which rules communication, are ALL in calm, cool, collected Capricorn.
At a glance it may seem Pitt's Fire and Earth are at odds with each other, but in fact the conservative, practical and adult energy of Capricorn would balance out the boyish Sagittarius energy just enough to keep things interesting and fun, but still get things done.
Take a deeper look into the Astrology of Brad Pitt to see how all these cosmic elements work together to shape the character of this superstar. And Happy Birthday, Brad! It looks like you're in for a spectacular time, as usual.
