Nicolas Cage and Lisa Marie Presley - Celebrity Astrology
We offer interpretations of the birth charts of famous people and famous relationships in this section of the site.
Although Nicolas has a fun-loving Sagittarius Ascendant, he's a Capricorn by and large. His Sun, Mercury, and Mars are all in Capricorn, and even his Venus in Aquarius is Capricorn-tinged--it's conjunct Capricorn's ruling planet, Saturn. Hard-working, status-conscious, and persevering, Nicolas certainly possesses the staying power and know-how to get where he wants to go in life.
Nicolas was reportedly a social outcast in high school. While this definitely is not always the case with strong Capricorns, astrologers generally see Capricorns (and Saturn) as people who come into their own with age and maturity. Despite his outcast status, Nicolas was not afraid to be different. His Sun and Mercury trine both Uranus and Pluto probably played a role--being original and unique will have simply come naturally to him, without much effort.
Nicolas' Sun, Mercury, and Mars in Capricorn are all placed in the first house of his natal chart. This suggests a person with enormous presence and willpower. His Venus (10th house, career ruler) and Saturn trine his Midheaven and Moon, endowing him with natural charm and respectability. It would be very natural for him to accept that he has to work for what he wants.
His Sagittarius Ascendant gives Nicolas a sort of wayward charm, and suggests some need for independence.
Nicolas recently married Lisa Marie Presley--the daughter of his idol Elvis. She is an original, independent Aquarius with a soft Pisces Moon.
Their composite chart, which is the chart of their relationship, is a little difficult in absolute terms. Most notably, their composite Moon is unaspected--generally a red flag--suggesting problems feeling truly comfortable together. The most positive aspect is their composite Mars trine Jupiter, which suggests that they can be quite productive and active together. The square between Mars and Neptune means they will need to be careful to define the goals of their relationship, or they may find that they are working towards different outcomes.
In synastry, Lisa Marie's Sun conjuncts Nic's Venus and Saturn, suggesting some sense of commitment; and his Sun conjuncts her Venus. This shows a strong--and mutual--admiration.
