In France, her nickname is La Légende. Elsewhere, she’s known as The Look, a moniker given to her early on during her 50-year career for a seductive yet piercing and defiantly cool gaze. On film, this Paris-based actress — who’s worked with Luchino Visconti, Lars von Trier and Sidney Lumet — has played everything from a concentration-camp inmate and a noir femme fatale to a neurotic ex and a bourgeois wife who has an affair with a chimp. She’s a fashion icon, who’s both received the Légion d’Honneur and been named Officer of the Order of the British Empire. She was the first to pose nude for lensman Helmut Newton. And, oh, she was initially discovered and scouted on the streets of London — for a Cadbury chocolate ad.
Charlotte Rampling’s life and career doesn’t follow any tidy narrative; it’s one surprise turn after another. Born on February 5th, she’s an Aquarian and Aquarians are rebels, ruled by unpredictable Uranus. They’re adventurers, independents, free spirits. “Aquarius is here to break the rules! You like to be different and I want to tell you that it’s your job to break the mold,” writes astrologer Susie Cox in Susie’s Sun Signs. “If you always dance to your own music, you will be true to your Aquarian principles.”
Which sounds about right for the magnetic and still beautifully captivating Rampling. “Ever since I was a small child,” she told The Guardian in 2011, “I’ve had this feeling — it’s in my nature, and so it’s not even pretentious — that if everyone’s going one way I will go the other, just by some kind of spirit of defiance.”
To discover your horoscope from Cox, now that we’re in the air sign of Aquarius (January 19th – February 18th), keep reading.
