When cast as Broadway's Annie at age 13, quirkily glamorous Hollywood mainstay Sarah Jessica Parker was already a pro in the New York performing arts world -- as both an opera singer and a ballerina. Raised in a huge family of 10, Parker managed to raise her voice and boldly take on the stage as well as the screen -- the big, in films like Footloose, Honeymoon in Vegas and Ed Wood, and the small, beginning with the 1982 sitcom Square Pegs. Of course, it was a nearly two decades later, in the racy series Sex and the City, that Parker broke new television ground as New York sex-columnist Carrie Bradshaw. Parker has also served as UNICEF's Special Representative for the Performing Arts, and she and her husband, actor Matthew Broderick, are active in AIDS charities. Parker and Broderick also make time to be parents! Where will this fearless actress direct her exuberant energy next?

Born under an Aries Sun, Sarah Jessica Parker appears alive with feisty fire-sign energy. Those with an Aries Sun grab life by the arm, forcing it to keep up with their own frenetic and invigorating pace. Parker portrays smart, active, independent women -- like her character Carrie Bradshaw on Sex and the City or valley girl SanDeE* in L.A. Story -- and no doubt each one reflects her own vigorous and pioneering spirit. She certainly looks the Aries part: lean and fit, with piercing eyes.
That Aries Sun no doubt made it easier for Parker to stand out and excel as one among many brothers and sisters. Aries children need to be stimulated and challenged, and Parker found her life's work at a young age, landing her first Broadway role at 11. Parker also has her Mercury, ruler of communication, in Aries. For many performers, acting is a means of expressing their own thoughts and feelings, a way to articulate their inner worlds -- and since Parker's Mercury is in an active and ambitious sign, she enjoys the advantage of a quick, determined mind. This is certainly an asset in show business and theater, where memorization and concentration are key.
High-spirited Parker and Broderick must enjoy quite a passionate relationship, one punctuated by spontaneous and lavish gift-giving, for both have Venus in Aries. This placement reveals an extravagantly generous person who likely fell in love quickly and impulsively. These two probably also maintain their independent lifestyles, as freedom and surprises are musts for Aries lovers. Aries is a cardinal sign, meaning that Parker likely knows how to start things up, energizing others to attempt to keep up with her. Aries, though, isn't a sign that's always keen on finishing what it starts. How is it, then, that Parker has managed to maintain such a durable and steadily successful career?
When you consider all the steadfast earth signs in her chart, Parker's achievement begins to make more sense. Like the tortoise versus the hare, slow and steady earth signs help this actress win the race. With her Moon in Capricorn, Jupiter in Taurus and Mars, Uranus and Pluto all in Virgo, Parker's fiery and sometimes impetuous Aries influence is tempered and grounded by earthy practicality.
Parker's Moon lies in the disciplined and tenacious sign of Capricorn. Growing up in such a large family, Parker benefited from this influence to cultivate her drive for success; a Capricorn Moon likely instilled in her a need for security and structure. Mars situated in Virgo makes for someone who channels excess passion into career. Indeed, Parker's resume boasts over 40 film and television projects alone, and that's not even taking into account her continued involvement in theater and charitable organizations. When she accepted her 2000 Golden Globe for her work on Sex and the City, Parker said she'd never won anything in her life. With an astrological chart so full of passion, generosity and determination, it's no surprise that that first statuette has been followed with quite a collection of Golden Globes and Emmys -- and Parker surely hasn't seen the last of such critical acclaim!
