Actress Diane Keaton [born on January 5, 1946] is such an amazing mix of Capricorn Sun and Aquarian Moon. Take the way she dressed when she won her Oscar [for Annie Hall] in 1978. Her outfit was pure Capricorn – jacket, knee-length skirt, scarf, shirt buttoned to the neck, plus her hair up … very tailored and no-fuss. The Aquarian twist was that every other woman at the Oscars was wearing a glam and glitzy evening frock … no female had ever accepted an Oscar dressed like the unconventional Ms Keaton [complete with flat shoes and white bobby-socks!] And her thrift shop outfits in Annie Hall started a new trend of women wearing waist coats, neck ties, baggy pants and quirky hats. Her taste in fashion and interior design are very similar …
When I look at a person’s decorating style, I primarily look at their Sun [self-expression and creativity] Moon [home and family] Venus [aesthetic taste] and the sign on the IC/4th house cusp [domestic environment]. Diane Keaton has her Sun and Venus in Capricorn, plus her Moon and IC are in Aquarius … and her home is a unique mix of Capricorn and Aquarian style.
Her Beverly Hills home is in the Spanish colonial style – complete with clean lines, earthy colours, big spaces, functional and uncluttered rooms, classic furniture and expensive artefacts … all very Capricorn. And then there are the avant-garde Aquarian touches. Lots of large quirky quotes written on the walls in numerous rooms; plenty of cutting-edge contemporary art; an eclectic kitchen … plus the number 3 continually pops up in unexpected places.
Diane Keaton’s library is full of books on history, art and design … a bohemian home always has plenty of books. Her dining room has earthy colours and vintage pottery … plus modern art and a large number 3. The guest bedroom contains a quirky display of Mexican and Californian memorabilia [Capricorns love history …] And the kitchen has clean, crisp Capricorn lines … with plenty of Aquarian eccentricity via colourful tiles she bought at a swap meet.
