English actor Kit Harington has been melting hearts as Jon Snow in Game of Thrones since season 1 aired on April 17 2011 (making the show an Aries!), catapulting him and his hair to international super-stardom. Kit was born on December 26, 1986, which falls under the sign of Capricorn – the cockroach of the zodiac, the survivor against some pretty tough odds, as well as being the sign that tends to get the last laugh. At least some of this has been reflected in his character’s arc on the show: he’s lost his father and his one true love, played by real-life lover, Aquarius, Rose Leslie, he’s been banished to the wall for being illegitimate and shunned by his father Ned’s wife and always been on the periphery of his family and, as we discovered in season 6, been denied his birth right. Season 7 is when Jon Snow’s parentage and his right to the Iron Throne, and the fact that he is related to Mother of Dragons, Daenerys Targaryen (Scorpio, Emilia Clarke).
As he’s a Fire Tiger in the Chinese zodiac, we’re betting that he’s a fun guy to have around on set and will be popular and upbeat and he might also be a bit of a joker. Let's have a look at Kit Harington's astrology birth chart!
Kit Harington’s Astrological Birth-Chart
Harington is a Capricorn (born 26th December 1986) with moon in Scorpio (based on a midday chart in the absence of an exact time). Although with such a lion’s mane of hair our guess is he could very well have Leo rising - Rose Leslie's Aquarius star sign (Leo’s opposite sign) makes for a very compatible romantic relationship. But let’s get back to trading in the facts of Kit Harington's birth-chart.
Neptune, the most glamorous planet in astrology
, is the heavenly body that rules the acting profession and show business. Being conjunct Kit’s Sun, he’s therefore an equally glamorous person that was born to act, because apart from anything else Neptune’s the planet of illusion and fantasy. With such a charismatic planet next to his sun he’ll probably be as magnetically charming in person as he is on screen. The downside of Neptune is a weakness for constant escapism, and being a magnet for people that ultimately won’t do him much good. He may also have addiction issues.
Along with the moon, Pluto and Venus
are also in Scorpio, placing him at the obsessive-compulsive end of the spectrum. He’ll be intensely interested in whatever his latest hobbyhorse might be, like getting his teeth stuck into the parts he plays and plumbing depths other actors wouldn’t go near. Scorpio isn’t known for being the sign of sex appeal for nothing, and this cluster of planets account for his killer charisma. He’ll have very strong likes and dislikes and perhaps goes for vampy types of women or those that are fiercely private. He may also be a bit kinky.
People with Venus in Scorpio
, while intense in love, can also go for unusually long periods without physical intimacy if they don’t meet anyone that they really click with. Mainly because they have exacting standards, and because trust is the be-all and end-all to these naturally suspicious people. If anyone were to do a kiss and tell on Kit, for example, he would take it very, very personally and perhaps even seek revenge.
These planets also connect favourably with Mars and Jupiter conjunct in Pisces. By and large this means that he’s probably big on promises and making people feel special but he might not answer his phone when he’s most needed or when he just doesn’t feel that he can do a person or a social situation justice. He’d rather avoid confrontation in the hope that the people in his life will instead pick up on the subtle signals he’s sending out!
Although with Mars in gentle Pisces, here we have a laidback person day to day, and someone who may even bottle up anger because he can’t express it in a way that he’s entirely comfortable with. With Jupiter also in Pisces conjunct The Red Planet, there’ll be a shape shifting quality to Kit that’ll help him tackle a multitude of parts as he ages.
And because Jupiter and Mars together in Pisces are connecting to the moon and Pluto, an interest in spiritual matters, belief systems and life after death scenarios is likely, or this is an area of life that he’ll grow into. This also tells us that Kit Harrington is one of life’s comforters, and that he may have been through quite a few personal adjustments in his relatively short life so far.
Kit has said that he’s only read his own scenes for this upcoming season so that he can see if Game of Thrones
lives up to all the hype by watching it without knowing what’s going to happen. Capricorns often have an offbeat, earthy sense of humour, and combined with Sagittarius
, he loves a challenge.
According to Wikipedia he’s a direct descendent of Charles II of England, and he does have a bit of a regal look to him (another reason why we think that Leo might be on his ascendant). While three planets in Scorpio and another three in Sagittarius account for his windswept-yet-interesting-meets-brooding look.
Mercury and Uranus, conjunct, and Saturn in Sagittarius. What does this reveal? That he’s a talker, a born persuader, and he’s not ashamed to say he’s changed his restless mind. This indicates a mentally sharp, ‘on it’ mind. This also gives him a good sense of what will and what won’t work in the future, a skill that’ll come in handy when he’s looking into worthwhile future roles, especially after the colossal success of Game of Thrones. Unconventional ideas may seem crazy to him at first, but he shouldn’t write them off just because other people don’t get them straight away. Perhaps he has an inner tussle going on inside between wanting to be a rebel and having to conform and muffle all of these tendencies because Saturn is involved? He might be controversial and have a desire to shock through his edgy gallows humor.
