Standouts in the horoscope of Ben Affleck

As usual we will look at the standouts in his natal chart.

After all, that's what will bring us to the essence and disposition of the person.

Not to overwhelm you with information, we will only assess the horoscope of Ben Affleck by looking at the factors that only have some meaning for his love life.

There is quite a lot to tell about his natal chart though, but we'll still try to keep it to the essence.

In his horoscope we can find the following standouts:

  • Most planets and bodies are posited in water signs
  • Most planets are posited in the northern hemisphere of the horoscope wheel (houses 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6)
  • Mars, Pluto and Uranus are at so-called "critical degrees"; Mars and Pluto are at 0° in a sign while Uranus is at 15° in a sign
  • The most exact midpoints in the 45° dial/list are: SO = VE = UR/PL = KN/MC = VE/AS = SA/KN = JU/UR = AS; MA = ME/MC = ME/SA = UR; NE = MO/PL = KN/AS; KN = SO/JU = NE/MC = SA/NE = MO/UR; SA = VE/MA = ME/KN = MC = SO/UR = MA/AS; MC = SO/UR = VE/MA = MA/AS = SA = MO = ME/KN; MO = VE/NE = MA/AS = SO/UR = NE/AS = MC = VE/MA; JU = SO/MO = SA/AS = AS/MC = VE/MC = NE/KN = VE/SA
  • There are the following predominant connections in his natal chart: Venus/Neptune, Moon/Pluto, Sun/Mercury and Moon/Venus
  • The Ascendant is at 8° Cancer
  • Saturn is the lead planet of a Locomotive pattern and also exactly square his IC-MC axis

An emphasis on water signs implies that he may absorb, take in a lot.

There is some kind of openness, making him vulnerable, more dependent, seeking a shelter.

He might be too sensitive, feeling inadequate, anxious and periodically depressed at times.

Because the earth and air elements are quite weak, heavy mood swings can be present.

Earth and air present the 'thinkers' of the zodiac while water and fire represent 'the feelers.'

The predominant water element indicates he's above all a 'feeler', not a 'thinker', resulting in emotional behavior with super-intense feelings and following 'the heart' above 'the mind.'

When most planets are posited in the northern hemisphere of the horoscope wheel, it suggests a more private and contemplative nature.

He might not seek public action too much or does not seek the limelight that much.

Mars and Pluto are at 0° in a sign while Uranus is at 15° in a sign (all "critical degrees"), indicating the following:

  • Mars at 0° Virgo: health issues and the need to keep the head above the water at times
  • Pluto at 0° Libra: profound and intense but also karmic relationships and health issues affecting the kidneys.

    Kidney health often reflects how relationships went or go.

  • Uranus at 15° Libra: a sudden (often also secret) love affair (in a male natal chart this degree suggest that (a) much younger woman or women might be involved), the sudden enjoyable encounter or meetings that are not always long-lasting.

    This degree area too indicates possible health issues related to the kidneys.

The most exact midpoints in the 45° dial/list denote the following:

  • SO = VE = UR/PL = KN/MC = VE/AS = SA/KN = JU/UR = AS: to enjoy a beautiful environment, the affectionate bond(s), the need to be single or alone, the distant bond(s), to need seclusion or isolation, the attraction/love at first sight, the affectionate or love urges, the love drive
  • MA = ME/MC = ME/SA = UR: the sudden anger and/or awakening, the dispute(s), to say what's on the mind, the quarrels, the intolerance, the separation after a dispute, the unexpected and/or instant leave-taking, the strong inner nervous tension and stress, the (heavy) discord, the immediate change of course or decision 
  • NE = MO/PL = KN/AS: feeling weakened, to be very impressionable, the alcohol or addiction issues, to be very sensitive, the dissolving bond(s), the falsehood and/or disappointments in relationships, the secret bond(s)
  • KN = SO/JU = NE/MC = SA/NE = MO/UR: the helpful or supportive bond(s) or connection(s), to be in bad company, to share sorrow and/or dissatisfaction, to be together with an ill person or partner, the hospital visit(s), to be modest, the nervous tension
  • SA = VE/MA = ME/KN = MC = SO/UR = MA/AS: infidelity, love's separation, the sudden loss or separation or disruption, not being able to develop, to suffer because of someone else, to share concerns
  • MC = SO/UR = VE/MA = MA/AS = SA = MO = ME/KN: the sudden shock, the short-lived passionate love bond(s)
  • MO = VE/NE = MA/AS = SO/UR = NE/AS = MC = VE/MA: to not always get on well with women, the disappointments
  • JU = SO/MO = SA/AS = AS/MC = VE/MC = NE/KN = VE/SA: to be wealthy, the fortunate disposition, to change the place, the different residences, to be popular, to enjoy travel, to be optimistic at heart, the losses related to a bond or relationship, the divorce, infidelity

In his natal chart, we find the following powerful and predominant connections:

  1. Venus/Neptune because the ruler of the 12th house (mundane ruled by Neptune) is in the 2nd house (mundane ruled by Venus), Venus is inconjunct and contra-parallel Neptune and the ruler of the 7th house (mundane ruled by Venus) is in the 12th house (mundane ruled by Neptune)

    This connection often coincides with fear for reality, not liking to be disappointed and compensating this by creating an illusion or fairy-tale (dream)world in which one feels secure and being taken care of.

    There is a very creative and tasteful artistic drive noticeable.

    The downside of this analogy or connection can be lacking boundaries and not really knowing one's limits.

    There is lots of wishful thinking.

  2. Moon/Pluto because the Moon is semi-sextile Pluto, the Moon is in Scorpio (ruled by Pluto) and Pluto is in the 4th house (mundane ruled by the Moon).

    This connection often indicates (a) traumatic childhood experience(s).

    In times of stress, his behavior may follow fixed steps or routines so to avoid 'reality' entering his psyche.

    It's a (self-)defense mechanism blocking harmful influences and he may also go as far as repressing feelings.

    This connection compensates harmful influences by being extremely ambitious and determined, so no feelings have to be taken into account.

  3. Sun/Mercury because the Sun is in the 3rd house (mundane ruled by Mercury), Mercury is in Leo (ruled by the Sun) and the Sun is parallel Mercury.

    This analogy indicates a talkative nature and not always being able to live the own creative self-expression and life.

    The native has often a youthful and charming appearance but needs to learn coordinating movements better at times.

  4. Moon/Venus because the ruler of the 4th house (mundane ruled by the Moon) is in the 2nd house (mundane ruled by Venus), the Moon is trine Venus, Venus is in Cancer (ruled by the Moon).

    This is the connection related to naivety and looking for emotional security in relationships.

    It's the connection of loving aesthetically pleasing goods and, in a male horoscope, the native may cling to (certain) women.

The Ascendant at 8° Cancer indicates an emotional urge to communicate and/or communication that involves emotions or is based on emotions.

There is self-concern as well.

Additionally, some emotional vulnerability cannot be ruled out, with hidden love bonds affecting existing love relationships and/or (a) marriage(s).

This means that infidelity can be part of his relationships.

There is an urge to escape and quit 'the old' and gain more freedom by opting for novelties, variety and change.

However, while assuming variety will bring something really new, he falls into the trap easily and seems not to see that 'the new', is just the old in a new costume.

Sudden reversals and disruptions are part of his life.

Saturn is the lead planet of a Locomotive pattern and also exactly square the IC-MC axis in his natal chart.

A Locomotive pattern is one of the most common patterns of all, so that this is not anything special, as such.

The core meaning of this pattern is about being driven by something, an ideal, an idea, a vision but when at rest, there is an initial inertia to overcome to start going (and this may be frustrating).

His behavior may be more predictable and because most planets in his horoscope wheel are situated in the northern part, Ben Affleck might be highly introverted, only seeking public acclaim and recognition for putting the interests of others ahead of his own.

Saturn, ruler of his 7th house of relationships squaring the parental and work-life balance axis, suggests accomplishments, limits and restrictions coming from the partners, others, an audience, external situations.

It's likely others, the partner inclusive, an audience may object the course Ben Affleck's life is going at times.

Also, secrecy and health issues are often involved as Saturn is in the 12th house of secrets and sorrow.

Hence, secret relationships and sorrow related to relationships, the partner, an audience are part of his life.

Isolation tends to harm him, as well as difficulties setting boundaries.

The love life of Ben Affleck

Reportedly, Ben Affleck has dated quite some women, among others: Cheyenne Rothman (from 1990 to 1997 they were high school sweethearts), Gwyneth Paltrow (from 1997 to 2000 in a toggle on-off relationship), Salma Hayek (in 1999), Jaime King (in 2001), Jennifer Lopez (2002 to 2004 (?) and back later on -- see below), Lindsay Shookus (from 2017 to 2019 in a toggle relationship), Shauna Sexton (in 2018), Ana de Armas (from 2020 to 2021).

Ben Affleck married Jennifer Lopez in Las Vegas on 16 July 2022.

They were previously scheduled to be married on 14 September 2003.

However, five days before the wedding, the couple postponed the event.

Reportedly, on 11 February 2004 the couple split up permanently.

Ben Affleck wed for the first time Jennifer Garner instead in a private ceremony on Parrot Cay in the Caribbean on 29 June 2005.

He has a daughter, Violet, born on 1 December 2005 at 6:26 PM EST in Los Angeles (3:26 PM PST) and a second one, born on 6 January 2009 also in Los Angeles, named Seraphina Rose Elizabeth Affleck.

Their son, Samuel Garner, was born on 27 February 2012.

Ben Affleck and Jennifer Garner divorced in October 2018 but he always remained in contact with Jennifer Lopez in the years after their break-up and they still spoke highly of each other in public.

No wonder, they began dating again in April 2021, 20 years after they first met, rekindled their romance in July 2021 and were engaged for the second time in April 2022.

And then, they married...
