PSYCHOLOGICAL HOROSCOPE ANALYSISfor Norma Jean Mortenson (Marilyn Monroe), born 1. June 1926
"...Romantic vision and the gift of imagination
"...The romantic vision rejects life's limitations
However, because of your emphasis on the imaginative and intuitive side of life, you run the risk of forgetting worldly limits. You tend to be on rather poor terms with day-to-day reality and its responsibilities and demands, because these thwart the vision that means so much to you. You may resent the boredom of a routine job, feeling secretly that you are entitled to something more special and glamourous; or you may dislike having to bind yourself to domestic obligations because these stop the flow of the imagination. You may also resist having to select one thing to which you must apply yourself, preferring to feel that you have many potentials open in the future; and this could result in you becoming a "jack of all trades" who dabbles in everything and produces nothing lasting. This is the "one day when I grow up..." syndrome, which may be appropriate in youth but which begins to feel rather uncomfortable with the passing of the years..."
"...You will sooner or later need to make better friends with the physical world. This effort can be rewarding and exciting because your sensual nature, although often repressed or neglected, is powerful and capable of great intensity and pleasure, and your uncannily accurate intuition can also be applied to practical matters to ensure your success. Any achievement of a material kind can be enormously rewarding to you, and you possess a rare capacity to respond to nature and to the beauty of the physical world - if you will only stop running away from what you call "lower" or "unimportant". In very personal matters such as sexual expression your unease with the body can also make you shy and awkward, and here too there might be a promise of much greater fulfilment if you can allow yourself to experience the powerful demands of the instincts which you sometimes fear. Your perception of physical reality may be too negative, and it is possible that family attitudes in your early life have contributed to your undervaluing of yourself in this realm of life. If you can learn the art of being an ordinary mortal in a sometimes unromantic world, then your unusual and powerful imaginative gifts will always bring you new adventures as well as earning you concrete rewards. ..."
"...Interest in people and need for social involvement dominate
"...Humanitarian concerns deepen your
"...What you are not so good at is difficult emotional confrontations. There is an ethereal, airy and butterfly-like quality about you which some people might call elusive. You can be delightful and charming and witty, but you tend to fade away and vanish in the nicest possible way if too many demands are placed upon you. You like a lot of people a lot of the time, not one person with intensity all of the time; and you tend to keep the emotional doorways and fire escapes clear because you are fundamentally restless at heart and become easily bored - by routines, routine ideas, and routine people..."
"...A natural gift for handling the public
It is hard for anyone to penetrate past your public face, for the pleasing, friendly and intelligent personality which you project is automatic and never fails you. Whatever you are like when you wake up in the morning, few people ever see it, for you not only need to be liked by people; it is a matter of ethics. You like to be bright and light and positive, and you have considerable pride about dumping your personal problems onto others. After all, to your mind, they have enough of their own. You would do well in fields such as teaching, counselling, group organising or media; or even theatre or film, for you have a natural aptitude for playing to the unconscious needs of the audience and offering them what they did not even realise they wanted. Thus you depend upon others for your livelihood, and you prefer it that way; for your work and your feeling of belonging to a larger human family are inextricably bound together..."
"...A hidden need for solitude causes feelings of loneliness
in early life leave scars and feelings of mistrust
You hold within you a dark and rather negative vision of life, which might permit happiness for others but never for you. Thus there is something very inconsistent about your usually positive philosophy, for you cannot seem to apply it to yourself. Because of your unconscious defensiveness, you tend to withhold your real feelings from people, and you are prone to accumulating a certain amount of unspoken resentment because you try to please too much of the time while secretly feeling you are being taken advantage of. Thus your friendly sociability sometimes serves as a mask and a protection against spells of deep depression and loneliness, to which you are curiously prone. Your shadow expects others to reject you, which reflects not only a very destructive image of other people, but, more importantly, reflects your own deep denigration of your worth. Try to face your spells of negative feeling, for you are a moodier and more melancholy person than you like to admit; and you tend to let others take advantage of you, which you call being needed, because you are afraid of rejection and loneliness. Perhaps you need to learn to do a little more rejecting yourself, rather than surrounding yourself with people you do not feel deeply drawn to just for the sake of company..."
"...A psychologically absent figure
"...Selflessness and self-sacrifice
"...A tendency to excess
Marilyn Monroe's Biography
Birth Name: Norma Jean Mortenson
American actress, outstandingly famous as a sex symbol and subject of a lush nude calendar, photographed on 5/27/1949.
Marilyn was born in the charity ward of the Los Angeles General Hospital. Both her mom and her grandmom suffered from mental illness, probably manic depression. She maintained that one of her earliest memories was that of her mom trying to smother her with a pillow. Her mom paid a couple $25 a week to take care of her and she lived with these foster parents until she was seven. After her mom was hospitalized with a breakdown, Norma Jeane was placed in an orphanage and a series of foster homes, where she was sexually assaulted several times. She later said she had been raped when she was 11.
She left school with a youthful and short marriage at the age of 15 to merchant marine James Dougherty. Only 5' 1", she matured early into a shapely 110 lbs. Deeply insecure about her abilities, she was chronically late. When astrologer Richard Ideman remarked that New York was a lonely town, she said, "Any town is lonely when you don't know who you are." She had, nonetheless, a sly wit; once asked by a reporter what she wore to bed, she replied "Chanel No.5." Her drug and alcohol dependency was long-standing and well known among her intimates.
Marilyn made a second marriage to baseball player Joe DiMaggio, then to writer Arthur Miller (a NY Times article gave June 29, 1956, 7:21 PM in White Plains, NY). She was romantically involved at one time or another to Marlon Brando, Frank Sinatra, Yves Montand and director Elia Kazan.
Hundreds of biographies have been written about her by everyone from her lovers to her plumber. One lesbian relationship was related in a biography by her maid.
Historians find no documented evidence that Marilyn had an affair with Robert Kennedy, though there is credible evidence that she was intimate with John Kennedy, starting sometime in the 1950s. By the '60s, the relationships was so obvious that aides warned him to be more discreet. During the Thousand Days of his administration they continued to meet, though not at the White House, and she told her friends about the trysts.
She met Robert Kennedy in February 1962 and many reports state that he soon shared her favors. By early summer she was telling friends that he would marry her. They were together at the home of Peter Lawford in late June and then, suddenly, both brothers cut her off and she was told to not contact either of them again. She began trying, without success, to reach Bobby by phone. She slumped into a deep depression, survived a drug overdose and told friends she had had an abortion. A close friend later recalled that "she looked like death."
The gossip continued for years that she was intimate with both Kennedy men and that they were involved in her death. She possessed handwritten notes from Bobby and had kept a diary. She was privy to numerous secrets about the Kennedys and their underworld connections. Moreover, she was unstable and might talk at any time. A world-famed celebrity, the actress had the power to do incalculable damage to the Kennedy image.
Monroe died of a drug overdose on 8/05/1962, Hollywood, CA. The prior night she had called Lawford about 10:00 PM, expressing fear that she had taken too many sleeping pills. She died sometime that night and about 3:00 AM, her housekeeper called her psychiatrist. She was found in her bed, nude, with a telephone in her hand. At 4:25 AM the housekeeper called the police. Her diary and personal notes were never found.
