The messy defamation claim and counter claim between the former Hollywood star couple, Johnny Depp and Amber Heard began in a court in Fairfax, Virginia, USA on April 11, 2022.
In February 2019, Depp filed a suit for a cool $50 million against Heard, for what he contends were libellous allegations that she had made in her December 2018 op-ed for The Washington Post. In August 2020, Heard who featured in the movie, ‘Justice League’ sought some justice of her own by countersuing Depp for an eye watering $100 million. The claim being that Depp regularly abused her before and during their 15 month long marriage.
We'll take a look at the horoscope of the 'Pirates of the Caribbean' star, to see if he’ll be walking the plank on this one. The birth data we have for Johnny boy is:
John Christopher Depp II, born June 9, 1963, 8:44 AM, Owensboro, Kentucky, US of A.
A Reading of Johnny Depp’s Horoscope
The Moon is the ruling planet of Jonny’s ascendant’s house and this occupies his VIth house. He is a sensitive, emotional person and has true-blue artistic qualities. He is intelligent, but thinks more with his heart than his head and many of his plans will not be grounded in reality. His chart shows that he is a moody person and his thoughts and moods will change frequently. This propensity to be moody will lead to problems in his life.
There is no escaping the fact that Johnny Depp has many enemies. They feature prominently in his life and will be responsible for worries and uncertainty. As mentioned above, he is an emotional person and the troubles that he experiences on account of such people, do affect him emotionally. He knows who these rivals and enemies are, but there are a few who he doesn’t suspect. He may consider such people to be friends, but secretly, they do not wish him well. However, due to the influences of Jupiter, the Moon and Mars, he generally prevails over his enemies.
The influences of Jupiter, the Sun and Mars are prominent in his birth chart. An exalted Jupiter occupies his house of fate, rules over this house and is the ruling planet of his Moon sign, Sagittarius. The Sun is his lord of wealth and an exalted Mars occupies his house of wealth and rules over his house of actions.
Johnny has the spirit of an entrepreneur and would never have done very well as a 9 to 5 man. He is ambitious and enterprising and these traits have brought him success, especially financially, he will lead a life of luxury for most of his life. Depp has good business instincts, but will be highly inclined to make speculative investments.
Johnny’s name derived zodiac sign is Capricorn and the ruling planet of this sign is Saturn. A weak and retrograde Saturn is exalted in his house of married life and has a favourable influence on this house. Saturn’s influence can bring long term stability to a person’s marriage. Saturn however, does delay marriage and this is only likely to occur relatively late in life, as a result of this influence. In Johnny’s case, only the second statement is true, as his marriage to Amber took place in February 2015, when he was in his fifties. Johnny has only been married once, but this did not result in a stable relationship, in contradiction to one of Saturn’s major influences.
Johnny was not able to find long term stability in his marriage because of Saturn’s weak alignment in his natal chart. As a consequence, Saturn was not able to overcome the adverse influences that exist in his ‘Navamsh’ chart, the divisional chart for his married life.
Considering that Mr. Depp is not a paying customer, we won’t go into too much detail about the characteristics of his ‘Navamsh’ chart, except to say that according to this chart, he is classified as being ‘Manglik’. That is, in order to have a successful marriage, his spouse should also be similarly ‘Manglik’, or have counterbalancing influences in her horoscope. If this is not the case, angry conflicts that cause worries, doubts and uncertainty about the future will be a feature of Depp’s married life.
Given the specifics of Johnny’s ‘Navamsh’ chart and that Amber’s chart is probably not suitably compatible, a premature end to their marriage is not a surprise. An astrological compatibility report could have provided advance warning, but now this is of course, post facto.
What Does Astrology Predict for Johnny Depp’s Future?
At the present time, Johnny Depp is passing through transits that are of a somewhat contradictory nature. On the one hand Johnny is passing through a ‘Yogini’ minor transit of Siddha’ that lasts till March 2023. This type of transit is exclusive to Vedic astrology and this will be a generally favourable time, allowing him to achieve success in many of his plans. What is not favourable is the seven-and-a-half year, negative transit of Saturn that he is also passing through, this is due to end by mid-January 2023. This court case and the present troubles and upheavals in his life are mostly due to this Saturn transit and hence, he can expect further such complications, till this runs its course.
Johnny’s general major, minor and sub-transits are presently those of Jupiter, Venus and the Moon, respectively. These transits are favourable and under the present circumstances they will help to keep matters on an even keel. However, these transits also show that Johnny will be under emotional strain till mid-May.
In the longer term, there will be a favourable change of fortunes in Johnny’s life, after April 2024. He will be free of all his current worries by then.
