Discussion about
Matt Damon, born 8 October 1970 at 3:22 PM in Boston MA
 
This discussion is imported from the  comment board on the  previous astrodatabank.com website.

Matt Damon's chart was originally posted with [was_link]Ben Affleck's[/was_link]. These questions apply to both.
  • What is the key to the success of their relationship? To add to the mystery take a look at their synastry and you will find 11 squares and only 3 trines among Sun-Pluto. Two of those squares are to Venus. So what gives?
  • What is the key to the success that came from their partnership? Magi astrologers, do you find golden linkages between their charts? How about the composite chart?
  • What was going on in their personal and composite charts to give them such a breakaway success in 1997-1998 with "Good Will Hunting"?

Hmm...well Ben Affleck's sun (Leo) is inside Matt Damon's 7th house (Partnerships) and Ben's Venus Cancer is inside Matt's 5th House (House of Love) Matt's Venus is in Scorpio and Bens' Mars is in Virgo. Bens' Venus is in Cancer and his Matt's Mars is in Virgo. Are you sure they are only best friends? I like their kites in their chart. They must have done a good job in their past lives.  
Love them.

Even though Matt's chart contains a pure kite, Ben seems to be getting the most of the attention right now, with his Leo Sun. Why are we trying to tie them together in other ways other than two creative people with the friendship advantage. Their lack of success with women is self explanatory with what looks like poor feminine examples in youth. Good will hunting should have featured Ben as the needy one, it looks like.

Just a comment on William Autrey's statement "Their lack of success with women is self explanatory with what looks like poor feminine examples in youth."Where is that comment coming from - if anything - there seems to have been very strong and positive feminine examples in both Matt's and Ben's youths- THEIR MOTHERS - both are teachers, well-educated, involved in helping to better society. They have both spoken at length about their strong and positive relationships with their mothers. Perhaps their mothers are a hard act to follow - and their is an overidealistic view of relationships/ unrealistic expectations. Matt has a Venus -Neptune conjunction which certainly supports this. Both had single mothers - (although the fathers were involved - but lived apart). They both have some challenging - if not down right difficult aspects to their Venus'. Matt's Venus conjunct Neptune Oppose Saturn. However some very supporting aspects (Moon sextile, Mars sextile). Ben's Venus Squares Pluto (and widely squares Uranus) but also has some supporting aspects (Trines Moon, conjuncts Ascendant). With Both Ben and Matt's Venus being angular with so many aspects - P

Interestingly - Matt and Ben's Composite chart - There is a 5 planet stellium (Sun, Venus, Mars (chart ruler of aries asc), Mercury all conjunct between 6 and 18 degrees and Pluto at 29 degrees) in Virgo in of all places - The fifth house - The purpose of their relationship - "To Create"!! These planets square the Moon at 13 Sagittarius in the 8th house (work with the creative energies of other - share resources).  
Back to Synastry - The squares - I believe give their relationship the energy needed to be so creative together - . One very interesting aspect of their charts - in Matt's chart The south hemisphere (7-12) is overemphasized with all planets there except Saturn retrograde. Ben is just the opposite - The north hemisphere overemphasized with only Saturn in the 12th. They are very Complimentary charts - There are also some very strong and important conjunctions needing mentioning. Matt's Jupiter conjunct Ben's moon (emotional support and enthusiasm). Ben's N. Node conjunct Matt's Moon. Ben's Uranus conjunct(partile) Matt's Sun. Ben's Pluto conjunct Matt's Mercury (partile). They have some similar energies in their chart - Matt has Venus in Scorpio- Ben has Venus square Pluto. Ben's Moon is in Scorpio -Matt's Moon trines Pluto (and his Sun is in the 8th house). Both Ben and Matt's Mars are in Virgo. They both have an angular Venus. Ben's Midheaven is Pisces - Matt's Neptune conjuncts his midheaven..  
I've never known Venus squares to be that negative in relationships - particularly friendships. Challenging perhaps, some adjustment needed. usually venus aspects - particularly the hard ones (0, 45, 90, 180) - draw two persons together - rather than drive them apart. They have a very ACTIVE (as opposed to passive) relationship and both their synastry and composite chart backs that up.

1. I am going to comment on their individual charts first ... as they are not posted together (which I do consider something of an inconvenience) ... anyway, success in any relationship depends on one's own individual sense of "other" ... I cannot look at Mr. Damon's chart without noticing the almost pristine Kite Formation involving Mars/Pluto, the Moon and Saturn, in Earth signs, and Venus in Scorpio ... apparently the time posted above was an excellent time to be born ... he obviously has a wonderful relationship with his mother ... Venus is near the top of his chart, and Moon in Capricorn seems to indicate a mother who had professionally sound principles ... he developed a strong sense of home and heart ... discipline and loyalty ... strong spiritual and emotional values ... good money values ... Venus in Scorpio any woman can trust and lean on ... he was evidently well-cared for and loved as a child ... these things he can carry forward in his relationships with anyone ... let's not forget Mercury and Uranus (which rules his first house...) in Libra ... a lot of rapid fire cooperation ...  
2. ditto ... but I think that this question wants to focus on Saturn, which here is extremely strong in Taurus ... very sound professionally ... very grounded ... strong ethics ... hometown values ...  
3. Oh boy ... where shall I start ... okay in 1997 Jupiter was entering Aquarius and ran through his first house ... having just run over his Moon he was definitely thinking big, putting money and management to the test .. Saturn just entered Aries ... both of these giants had previously aspected his kite combo ... big thinking, big enterprise ... lots of discipline and imagination ... diligent work ... Uranus also was conjunct his ascendant .. and ticking off trines to his Libra combination ... in fact, nearly every planet in this chart was receiving positive signals from the outer planets ... Neptune was still in the Kite (conjunct his Moon) in '97 ... Pluto had just entered Sagittarius ... very strong psychic impressions ... his soul was being channeled very much in his work ... I do not have the time to describe his experience at that time, except that success was imminent in his work ... the only perhaps real challenge in this chart is a very wide square between his Libra Sun and Capricorn Moon ... perhaps he might compromise on principle ... just a little bit Smiley

At first glance it looks to me that their descendants speak of their compatibility as partners.  
Affleck has Capricorn on the 7th house cusp. Damon has a moon in Capricorn--part of a Grand Trine-- as well as a bunch of planets in the 10th house.  
Damon has Leo on the 7th house cusp; Affleck has a Leo sun.

Matt and Ben could be just friends, they could be lovers, they fit into anyone's fantasies. Venus on the ascendant in Cancer, Ben is family to all. Square Pluto and everyone wants him or to be him. Generation X can swing on the old swinging gate. Everyone wants to have a friend like these two. I cry in their movies because I have none like this.

Just thought I'd add one idea. Composite chart is impressive in many ways here, but what grabbed me most about these two(had suspected for some time) was the Leo-Aquarius team at work. "anon" hit on a great point(Leo descendant Damon, Leo Sun Affleck)...but have you noticed how frequently (and famously) you can see Leo-Aquarius in classic performances? Lucille Ball/Desi Arnaz...Burt Reynolds & Dom DeLuise in The Canonball Run, just to name a couple. These ain't no chumps. These are performances that hold up long after their time. Don't want to sound like a "signs freak," there are certainly plenty of writers out there who seem to care about nothing else...but check the list and I think you'll agree the teams this combo creates-by Sun/Asc. or Sun/Sun, etc.-is impossible to ignore. Haven't checked the charts on any of the other pairs, but I can't help wondering if this dynamic doesn't do a lot to get it done all by itself.

I don't want to repeat what's already been written, but clearly the conjunctions are important for friendship and associates - Sun-Uranus, Moon-Jupiter, Neptune-MC, Moon-Node, Mercury-Pluto, Mars-Node. These alone reflect a close enough connection at the level of identity and sense of self, to forge a good friendship and/or working relationship.
I just wanted to add that Matt Damon's Pluto is conjunct Ben Afflect's Sun/Moon midpoint, so there is a depth of identification here, and a link with resources, business and wealth, career direction and position in the world (Pluto rules Matt Damon's MC). No wonder we tend view them as a pair, and no wonder their friendship with one another has been so profoundly transformative for them both.
PS As for the Square and Trine aspects etc, why is it that these are regarded as problematical or reflective of antipathy, and 'easy' or reflective of harmony, respectively? This attitude to Squares and Trines is outdated and belongs in the dustbin of history. 'Two of these squares are to Venus' says the questioner (posted under 'What do you think?') - NEWSFLASH: relationships can thrive on dynamism and stimulation you know. Doh.

1) Matt's Moon activates Ben's 7th 2) Ben's Sun activates Matt's 7th 3) Matt's 1st and Ben's 7th are both ruled by Saturn 4) Ruler's of both 7th houses are in close trine (Sun trine Saturn!) 5) Matt's moon is conjunct Ben's NN in the 7th 6) Ben's Sun is conjunt Matt's SN in the 7th

It's interesting that Matt married Luciana today, 12/9, in NYC, his first marriage, as Venus trines his Pluto[intense love]; he's enjoying his Jupiter return; his incredible triple trine/kite has just been fueled by tr. Venus and tr. Mercury; while on Dec. 1, his buddy Ben Affleck had his first child Violet.

Many conjunctions in Matt's chart show power--Mars conjunct Pluto, Sun conjunct Uranus conjunct Mercury, and Venus conjunct Neptune. Mercury conjuncts Pluto out of sign. He has a stellium across the Virgo-Libra cusp, making for great power, Neptune in tenth--makes for acting, conjunct Venus, success therein, and in Scorpio, great attractiveness. Jupiter in tenth--great wealth and success in career. Grand trine in earth signs-great talent and can bring this into practical usage; with Venus in Scorpio, making a kite formation, enhancing the focus of the grand trine. Uranus conj. Sun makes for originality and creativity, in Libra, in the arts.

I follow Damon's career quite closely; he is one of the few modern actors that I like and fully respect. He has remained quite humble despite his fame and his acting-style is subtle, learned, and informed. His acting-portfolio reflects that he has made MANY excellent career choices, i.e. he never takes a role 'simply for the money.' In this respect he remains true to himself and to his art, unlike so many other rude, greedy, and arrogant Hollywood stars. For all of this, Mr. Damon, I applaud you. This astrological review is for the skeptics...and for Mr. Damon himself if he ever reads this. Damon is obviously VERY sensitive to Jupiter transits. He was born with his natal Jupiter at 09*40' of Scorpio, as the above chart illustrates (even if his birth time is off by hours, Jupiter is still between 09*32'-09*44' of Scorpio in his chart). He was married (for the first time) on December 9th, 2005; that was at the time of his 3rd Jupiter Return (a Jupiter Return happens approx. every 12 years). Jupiter was at 09*20' of Scorpio at noon that day (partile), only 20 minutes of arc from an exact hit. His first child was just recently born, on June 11th, 2006; Jupiter had retrograded back and at noon that day Jupiter was at 09*53' of Scorpio (partile), only 13 arc-minutes from an exact hit. Can these Jupiter-inspired events be written of as simple coincidences? I think not (perhaps he has an astrologer working for him...or studies it himself as a hobby!). Jupiter will soon station at 08*59' of Scorpio, well within range of his natal Jupiter. It is an extended Jupiter Return for him (3 separate hits) -- this is a VERY lucky and fortunate time in his life! His next (partile) Jupiter Return in this cycle is approx. July 27-28, 2006; we'll see if anything else pops up around that time for him. If anything, the rest of June, all of July, and the first half of August (2006) will probably be some of the best times of his life. I wish you continued good luck Mr. Damon! It seems that you are already quite 'lucky,' however. Jupiter has smiled favorably upon you and your new family!
