The Capricorn Astrology Research Project has looked at the Sun’s position by house in the birthcharts of over 20000 public figures and found that celebrities are significantly more likely to be born in the morning than at any other time of day.
The sample of 20641 subjects was collected from the Astro-Databank Wiki Project website database of Public Figures between 2010 and 2013, the final list collected between March and May 2013. All the charts on the Public Figures list were used unless there was no birthtime given.
ASTROLOGY HOUSE INTERPRETATIONS
In Astrology an emphasis on the left hand ( Sunrise ) side of a chart, particularly if planets are in the first house or close to the Ascendant, indicates a person who is generally self motivated, initiating and assertive with a strong drive to be the centre of attention. Self determination and one’s own path in life are the most important themes. In simple terms the 1st house is the house of the self. A great example of this type of chart is Madonna. Madonna was born at 7.00 am so the Sun in her chart, shown by the gold circle with the dot in the middle, is on the left just above to the horizon.
An emphasis on the right hand ( Sunset ) side of a chart, particularly if planets are in the 7th house or close to the Descendant, indicates a person who is generally concerned with or dependent on other peoples activities and needs in order to pursue their own drives. Cooperation and relationships are the most important themes. In simple terms the 7th house is the house of the marriage partner. An example of this type of chart is Barbara Bush who is mainly known as the wife and mother of two US Presidents. Barbara was born at 7.00 pm so the Sun in her chart is on the right just above the horizon.
There are many astrological factors that make up a birthchart, with a number of planets in different signs and houses and the angular relationship between them. The Sun is the most important single factor and its house position is determined by the Earth’s daily rotation. The Sun is in the Eastern half of the chart after midnight and before noon and it is in the 1st house just before sunrise. The Sun is in the Western half of the chart after noon and before midnight and it is in the 7th house just before sunset.
The hypothesis of the Capricorn Astrology Research Project is that people who are recognised public figures are more likely to have the Sun in the Eastern half of the chart and in the 1st house than in the Western half and in the 7th house.
