At Lois Rodden’s Astrodatabank, the following birth data for Depp has an AA rating indicating an accurate time of birth-
Depp was born in relatively ordinary circumstances and was a high school drop-out who started playing rock music in garage bands in his childhood. See Cancer Ascendant/ Karkaṭa/Karkata Lagna in Papa-Kartari Yoga formed by Rāhu/ Rahu in the 12th House and Mars in the 2nd House.
We are however more concerned with the massive adulation and success he has received. We must always note that the masses are indicated by Saturn and for people in the entertainment industry a strong Saturn is very beneficial. The reason, apart from the support and popularity from the masses, is that Saturn is exalted in a Rāśi/ Rashi/ sign ruled by Venus, which is the significator for entertainment and movie-making.
In this chart, Saturn is in its own sign of Capricorn/ Makara in a Keṅdra Bhāva/ Kendra Bhava/ quadrant forming the Śaśa Mahāpuruṣa/ Sasa Mahapurusha Yoga. What is more, Saturn also has 100% Digbala/ directional strength in the 7th House. It is supremely strong.
Johnny Depp’s reputed status of being the highest paid Hollywood star is explained simply from the Rāśi Chakra. The 11th House is the house of gains and of the multiplication of wealth. The 2nd Lord of money and liquidity is the Sun itself who is also the Naisargika Kāraka/Natural Significator for resources. It is placed in the 11th Bhāva with the 11th Lord Venus/ Śukra/ Shukra and the significator for money which is Mercury/Budha. This is a very powerful Dhana Yoga for wealth especially as Venus, the 11th Lord is in its own sign Taurus/ Vṛṣabha/ Vrishabha. This sign is also the natural 2nd House of the zodiac.
It was his first wife Lori Anne Allison who kick started his career which is evident from the fact that the Upapada Lagna is in the 10th House from the Lagna which is the Karma Bhāva.
With Jupiter in the 9th House of religion one of the best known facets of Jupiter comes through in his life. Gurū is Nirguṇa Brahman or Sāmba Śiva which is formless faith in destiny or divinity. This is precisely what Depp said on Larry King Live. Pisces, where Jupiter is placed also indicates the feet and Depp has said that he believes and has faith that everything will be alright as long as you keep moving forward (which is akin to walking).
As a person Johnny Depp is not on sure ground and therefore he finds growth the best way to live. In other words his personal moorings are contingent on how much of his reality his mind and consciousness can assimilate. This is indicated by the Dhimantaha Yoga formed by the Lagna Lord Moon in the 6th House. The Moon in this chart indicates all three of the body, mind, intellect continuum and since the 6th House is a natural Uapacaya house of growth, he must keep growing as a human being.
This affliction is mostly evident in the public domain as his attempts to claim some native American ancestry as the Lagna Lord is the roots and the origins of birth and also labelling the country of his birth ‘a dumb puppy with big teeth’ and ‘a broken toy’.
Correspondingly, Depp’s properties abroad in Europe have generated interested. The Caturthāmśa Cakra/ Chaturthamsha Chakra/ D-4 chart relates to properties and is a finer picture of the 4th House from the Lagna. This divisional chart is given below for reference-
While it is true that the Lagna Lord Saturn is exalted in the 10th House showing huge properties no matter where they are, it is retrograde and acts as if it is debilitated. In this chart, the 10th House acts as a Māraka or problem maker for the properties. In view of its strength, it has meant going out of the country of birth to acquire properties.
The Weird And Quirky-
A large number of Depp’s major successes have come from him playing weird and quirky roles. This is fundamentally due to the association of Ketu with the Lagna Lord Moon in the Rāśi Chakra and even more dominantly due to the placement of Ketu in the Lagna in the Navāmśa/ Navamsha Chakra/ the D-9 chart.
Ketu is exalted and Rāhu aspects the Lagna from its own exaltation sign in the 7th House. It is not correct to quip that he is a European ‘wannabe’ as with increasing age Sun’s love for order and decorum in the 9th House will become a dominant part of his personality with the efflux of time.
