Carrie Bradshaw

Carrie Bradshaw Horoscope,I was quite a fan of Sex & The City when it was on the TV 10 years ago now. Then it was still kinda regarded as feminist and quite radical. Now because it’s less sex and more domestic it seems to have become a bit of a guilty pleasure.

I can’t believe I’m quoting the Daily Mail but anyway…“Go savage Carrie & the girls, they’re the only safe target left.” Liz Jones.

Ok, it IS pure escapism, but like a very sickly trifle, you can’t resist going back for another spoonful. I have convinced a male friend we have to see it this weekend in the name of post-modern feminist research…

Sex and the City’s huge success must be due to the 4 archetypes hitting on something in the collective unconscious. I found each character does in fact have a birthday. though no time. (Not the same as the actresses who play them) So I thought it might be fun to go through each one and see if they actually match up to any of the Goddess Archetypes.


Bling Culture

I find Carrie Bradshaw to be the epitome of Venusian “bling” culture. At the same time (despite being intensely annoying and self obsessed.) she wins all the polls on “Who is your Fav SATC character.” Aphrodite is the most enduring goddess of them all because love, love, love and pretty things are just SO seductive.

They give her birthday as 30th January 1966. I imagine they choose this date because of the kooky Aquarian Sun. But I love that she’s a writer and in this chart her Mercury is indeed conjunct Venus. The tightest aspect in her chart is Mercury sextile Ceres tho. I do see Ceres as highly abundant, but it’s dark side is possessiveness and over attachment to material wealth. It’s quite Taurean which Venus rules.

Combined with Mercury would be constant thinking of growth, could be in philosophical thinking but also in the size of her wardrobe. A fickle nature is shown by Mercury also, the need for novelty. New PAIRS of shoes constantly. Mercury is dualistic and given to fashion fads. Her Venus is sesqui the tight Pluto/Chiron opposition which can be obsessive. Quite a shopaholic aspect. Conversely it can be sexual healing also through her psychological writing.

Like many born that year she has drama queeny and greedy Jupiter on Capella squaring that opposition. So she resonates with a generation of shopaholic, self obsessed, constantly busy, neurotic women who cannot shut their minds off. (Wait a minute…IM born January 1966…Oh god she is my shadow!)  Capella is the star on the goat in the arms of the Charioteer (Constellation Aquilla) It’s very much a “I want it all” constellation, especially with Jupiter. And the goat is Capricious! But it is also a highly successful star also, with Jupiter : slander and criticism, too enthusiastic or zealous, many voyages, trouble with relatives.”

Her Lilith is trine Jupiter also. Her saving grace. I guess she is given to self-reflection, spiritual thoughts and philosophy. Her sexuality a tool for enlightenment.

  1. I always suspected Carrie would be an air sign born during a cold season – because remember the episode that was on her birthday? They were wearing coats. I’ve always assumed Libra because she has the personality traits of an air AND Venus girl, and also Mr. Big is an Aries, so being opposition, it would explain their on and off again relationship. I never thought of her to be an Aquarius, but as you mentioned she’s quirky, glamorous, and intellectual, so I can see the Aquarian nature. Where did you get the birthday from?

    • Hi Jeffery,

      The Birthdays are on flickwit. There is a link in the post. Click on the orange coloured birthday.
      If we are talking sun signs archetypes, she is not classically beautiful like a true Venusian Libra, all symmetry and perfection. Much more the kooky-featured Aquarian with that nose…

  2. Hi Marina, great article. I just want to throw my 2 cents in here. I see Samantha as Aries…she is very male in her approach, so Mars must be in the first house..possibly Leo, even Capricorn (ambition and drive, not to mention in its exhaultation= highly sexed!) Then there is Carrie..a true Gemini it ever there was one..not just because she is a writer, but because of the superficiality which prevails in her (fashion, icons, being famous and her sense of humour)with Pisces (Neptune) definately strong..7th or 5th…then you have Miranda…the logical lawyer would say Libra, but I would say Virgo(the workaholic!) The red hair hinting at a Fire sign (her anger at injustice comes through the show a lot) so maybe Aries rising? Charlotte is so Pisces..the wimp of the lot, dreamy and romantic (always believing in “love conquers all”) even converted for her Jewish husband (which is SUCH a Pisces thing! Religion!) And her love of art and good taste = Taurus Mars? The pearls and her High Brow bloodline do hint at Capricorn, so possibly rising or in the 7th (the first husband who was so rich and destinquished (a surgeon) but couldn’t get it up! Now wouldn’t Saturn there just be perfect!) and so they would easily represent the 4 elements/archetypes. Samantha=Fire, Carrie=Air, Miranda=Earth, Charlotte=Water. Just a thought…

  3. Yes I definitely thought they represent the 4 element archetypes. And I would’ve said the same as you Sam= Fire, Carrie = Air etc. And so far the Planets go with that. You have to go with the birthdays that have been given to them and its uncanny that Samantha, has both Sun and Moon in Sagittarius according to the birthday. I think it really fits myself. Remember Jupiter that rules Sag is known for being highly sexed and a serial philanderer.

    I also think Carrie fits with Aquarius if we are going down the signs route. She is definitely quirky with her fashion sense. Moon in Taurus is her need for material goods. I don’t think she is any more superficial than anyone else in the series really. Actually atleast she sits down and questions things one in a while for her column.

    I still haven’t got round to doing the others yet. But they have their birthdays down as Miranda 23/08/66 and Charlotte as 14/07/67. Now that’s interesting as we get Miranda as just on the cusp of Leo/Virgo.( I would go with Virgo actually.) We’d have to check on when the sun moved into Virgo. And Charlotte of course would be a Cancerian. I must say I go with both of those. I though Charlotte very Lunar and mumsy and Miranda very asexual like Mercury with all her suits. I really think they did consider what signs to make them because they really do suit them I think.

  4. I love the bright correlations I’m reading here. Brilliant how the elements are represented. I actually found this post while trying to find out the guys’ astro profiles…here are my thoughts on the gals (based on their characters, not actual birthdates of the actresses…).

    My friends all think I’m like Charlotte, but I’m a Sag w/Virgo rising & Moon in Libra…maybe Char is a dreamy Pisces but she also might be a Libra…she did run a gallery, & she’s got romance on the brain – seeming to thrive with a partner. Hmmm…maybe she has strong Libra influences in her chart?

    Miranda has a Virgo/Aquarian vibe in my opinion. Critical yet aloof yet is the strongest “friend” in the bunch.

    Samantha has to be Aries – Mars rules it, and Mars used to rule Scorpio too – all fire. She also does, in her character, pick up the opposite sign’s characteristics too – Libra – she’s very charming & in PR.

    Carrie…air air air, but also Sag like – so Gemini would be appropriate. She likes to keep things light & fun. Is a writer so hello Mercury.

    Boys now…

    Big – Sag (BIG) but with stuff in Scorpio (mystery man). Aidan – Taurus (practical) but with Cancer stuff too (gushy, homebody – remember how Carrie was pretty much on her own for nights out on the town?). Smith – Cancer – he just reminds me of the private gushiness of Cancer but with opposite sign of Capricorn – the superstar image/public. Trey – Aquarius with Cap stuff (out of it but privileged). Harry – Sag! (Lawyer, big Jupiter personality & behavior, religion…) Steve – the goofy Piscean (bartender, emotional…).

  5. I think the producers/writers missed a trick in this show by not casting the 4 characters based on the elements. Natally 3 are Fire Suns and 1 Water.. Fundamentally the show was exploring the Whore archetype (all 4 in consensual reality terms would be regarded as sluts/slags in this culture/context). but we had 1 character who seemed to be ‘whoring’ a lot more reluctantly or ambivalently than the other 3, the water sign. Fires signs are more extroverted and less relationship orientated than the other 3 elements, So to my mind, or a Psychological Astrologers, the show was unbalanced in respect of this. Incidenatally, the show also seems to have caused a lot of harm as well to many women. Studies seem to show those who watched the show became more sexually promiscuous. In other words the audience may have felt these ‘fiery’ attitudes towards sex/love were more the norm than in fact, elementally speaking , they are or what horoscopists might expect.

    • Mike I’m sorry but I feel that you are way off the mark here! Sex and the City was a portrait of 4 women who (actually representing all 4 astrological archetypes, as comments above discuss) were born at the height of the sexual revolution in North America and grew up throughout its after-effects, blossoming into full womanhood in the uber-urban environment of NYC in the late 90’s – early 00’s. Maybe you come from a different planet, continent, or some puritanical religious perspective, but this in the cultural context of these 4 women (that fits squarely with my own, born in North America in 1966 and ending up in another uber-urban North American environment from my 20’s on) They are not “whores” – the use of this term reflects more on the person who uses it than who the persons whom that person attempts to describe. These women each individually manifest different aspects of sexually active single women in post-sexual revolution North America which in my experience was very much a norm of the time and place. These girls speak for my generation (indeed many of their conversations seemed scripted right out of those I’ve had with my own girlfriends) and what rich lives they have led. You miss the point – the extreme popularity of this series was not from the perspective of voyeuristic sensationalism, but rather from how much the characters and stories resonated with the experiences and sensibilities of their viewers. Don’t be messin’ with my girls -‘right?!?
