Celestial Beauty And The Astrology Of Redheads…

Are there any ties when it comes to flaming red locks? The answers are as always in the stars...

Is there an astrological indicator that points to being born with or suiting flame-red locks?

The answers could lie in the stars!

In the 1980s and 1990s, Judith A. Hill and Jacalyn Thompson investigated the astrological relationship between natural redheads, and the position of Mars in natal charts.

In a study of 500 redheads almost 30% were born with Mars within 30° of the Ascendant – the astrological point most pertaining to first impressions and appearance. Later studies weren’t so decisive.

Nevertheless, ‘Mars Rising’ is considered an astrological significator of red hair.

I thought it’d be interesting to see the astrological traits of famous redheads, with their Mars sign and position… I’ve also added in their zodiac sign for good measure!

I personally think there’s an interesting tie to Saturn…
