Arnold Schwarzenegger Capricorn Moon

Arnold’s charming personality, his winning attitude, his workaholicism, are all traits that can be found in his natal chart and explained in Astrological terms through a natal analysis. 

Look at the man’s moon!   Arnold Schwarzcenegger Moon Works Out

Pumping and sweating in the 6th house of fitness and daily toil, placed in Capricorn, is speaking volumes of his inner need to be somebody important, his persistence and aspiration to gradual climb to the top.

This moon is the ruler of his charming Cancer ascendant, expressing outward his need for achievement and status. A moon that’s in Capricorn is ruled by Saturn, so it means business.

“When you’re out there partying, horsing around, someone out there at the same time is working hard. Someone is getting smarter and someone is winning.” – Arnold Schwarzenegger

No fun and relax. Work and win. No pain, No Gain if you want to be Numero Uno Capricorn style!

This hard-working Moon in Capricorn is also a Gibbous Moon. Let’s get out of the gym for a moment, look at the sky and explain a little Lunar Astrology. In Astrology a moon’s phase in the time of birth is extremely important because it shows us the way we interact with the world.

Our motivation, modes of thought, our energy, all is in tune with the moon’s light. If it is waxing we are outward and expanding, having aims, goals, we grow as the light reflected form the moon surface grows. If we are born in waning phase the process is more inward, maturation occurs, conclusions endings and re-assessments, clearing for the new takes place.

Let’s get back to the gym now. There’s Arnold’s moon in the corner lifting, a waxing one and in Gibbous phase. This phase denotes Growth, Development and Establishment the building of new structures and systems of thought. So fitting to this man’s life that has built a structured body and a whole new school in bodybuilding and more importantly established and re-established himself and his career three times.

Waxing Gibbous: a phase that denotes self-development and production, perfection and overcoming of obstacles. Exactly what Arnold’s philosophy and life show.

So this moon in Capricorn works out and works out well helping him towards success. But more help comes from the man’s Nodes. Arnold’s uplift through the social ladder is also there in the chart.  The South Node is in the 5th house and in Sagittarius, the North Node in the 11th house in Gemini. Both at 0 degrees. Discover more in “Arnold nods and follows his nodes”.




The 6th house relates to health and work and in Clint Eastwood’s chart this house is greatly emphasized. Having Mars, the planet of stamina and physicality in the 6th House, placed in its house of joy, and being in Aries, the sign of Mars rulership, the placement is very strong and the planet becomes fully expressed.

In Aries, a sign that is associated with energy and vitality, Mars becomes the driving force behind his work, is expressed with athletic and healthy conscious actions, and is recharged with energizing vigor. Clint Eastwood, having an Aries in the 6th house that wants to be in charge of health matters, is a fitness aficionado since a teenager, and practices healthful eating and daily Transcendental Meditation.

He has played numerous demanding physical roles, climbing in «The Eiger Sanction», running upon rooftops in «Dirty Harry» or jogging alongside the president’s limo in «In the Line of Fire». His physical stamina at 76 is still extraordinary, as it was in 1951, when forced to swim 3 miles to safety after a plane he was boarding crashed into the sea.

Active and prolific in his work, he is a director famous for disliking to take many takes of the same shot when filming, and stays with the first one or two.  A sign of his 6th house Sign’s impatience and decisiveness.

In this iconic photo from the movie "Where Eagles Dare", Clint Eastwood plays a commando who has parachute dropped high in the Alps, to secretly raid a castle and save a General. This high octane role is so characteristic of his highly dignified Mars, a planet that really cries out from his chart:

"Whatever the problem is, Clint Eastwood is gonna fix it".
