[Least aspected Sun] [Uranus]

Jimmy was completely unprepared for success and its by-product–fame. Fame, of course, was exactly what he wanted; considering all the photographs he had taken of him­self, he had always acted like he already was world famous, but now he truly was....

James Dean

Film star James Byron Dean studied acting at UCLA and later achieved success in Holly­wood under his Primary Sun line: the planet ruling “dramatic talent” and the “celebrity spotlight.” As we can see in his astrocartography, Primary Sun runs over Hollywood in a vertical, midnight position.
        Dean’s Secondary Transcendental, Uranus, which runs vertically along the northeast coast of the United States (in a vertical, midnight position), describes another location of significance: in 1952, he moved to New York and studied in Lee Strasberg’s school of Method Acting. He later received a part in the Broadway play, See the Jaguar (1952).
        Dean is most remembered for his portrayal of a “rebellious” (Secondary Uranus) son in East of Eden (1955) and, in Rebel Without A Cause (1955), of a “restless character / absorbed in a heroic quest for self-identity” (Secondary Uranus / Primary Sun). The roles paralleled his personal quest to come to terms with his “unique / self-expression and -identity” (Sec­ondary Uranus / Primary Sun).
        Rebel resulted in Dean’s elevation to a “celebrity of nearly mythic proportions” (Primary Sun). His premature death further elevated his “cult hero” (Uranus / Sun) status, transforming him into an enduring symbol of youthful “rebellion / and individualism” (Uranus / Sun).2
