Charlie Sheen, birth name Carlos Irwin Estevez, is actor Martin Sheen’s third son and brother of Emilio Estevez. Born in New York City September 3, 1965 at 10:48 PM EDT, Charlie followed his father into the film and TV industries, and like him Anglicized his name as many Latinos have done.
Charlie was born with 3 difficult planets, SATURN, URANUS and PLUTO, involved with his Virgo SUN. His professional career rose to fame and popularity before his alcohol and drug abuse, incidents of domestic violence, excessive promiscuity and extreme temper brought it crashing down.
In Virgo, the SUN, our core self, is clever, competent and expectant. Planet URANUS, 3 degrees from Charlie’s SUN at his birth, makes him impulsive and unpredictable. It sparks his unique individuality and propels him to rebel against the status quo. PLUTO, a degree away, rules our deepest, unconscious drives and ambition for power. It makes Sheen a force to be reckoned with. And opposite the trio is SATURN, the taskmaster demanding conformity and achievement. Unwittingly, Charlie externalized these energies into powerful foes.
In 1987 Sheen shot to stardom as the lead in “PLATOON”. As it premiered, Sheen’s progressed SUN triggered his VULCANUS and NEPTUNE, marking a vital new presence in the glamorous world of film. It was also on the midpoint of his VENUS (arts, attraction, money) and PLUTO.
Emotional volatility and the force of his addictions led Sheen into drug rehab in August 1990. Transiting PLUTO triggered his HADES, secrets and vile matters. It was on the Cardinal Axis and the midpoint of his SUN and VENUS. This would reveal the seamy underside of this rising talent, whose over-the-top scandals would eventually undermine his hard won popularity.
