He was Sexiest Man Alive. Twice. Nominated for three Oscars. Countless money and admiration. And 23 years older than his last wife. So what happens when someone challenges Johnny Depp? DARVO that's what. Deny, Attack, Reverse Victim, Offender. "Ruth Glenn, president and CEO of the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence... every altercation between two people has a 'primary aggressor' and if the other party hits back in self-defense, that doesn't count as mutual abuse," Vox.
Johnny Depp is a Gemini, known for their flexible attitude towards the truth, with a Capricorn Moon known for their inflexible attitude towards their natural born superiority. With natal Mars conjuncted by two malefic planets, Pluto and Uranus, he's mean. His focal planet is Saturn, ambition. Venus and Mercury are in high minded Taurus. And with his Sun in the 11th House of Aquarius, he can be humanitarian. He's not completely evil but this is not a person who takes kindly to being challenged especially by a woman and the Hollywood community he thought he ruled.
Amber is a Taurus Sun/Venus with Mercury in challenging Aries. Her Mars is exalted in Capricorn and conjuncted by Neptune (Pisces). With a Moon in non-confrontational Libra. Her focal planets are Neptune, seeing things the way you want to see them and Mars, willfulness.
I was in a relationship where someone I was crazy about "made" me act badly. Passion and anger are both about Mars. And often they are karmic and come in the same package. Certain people can bring out qualities in you that you don't normally have. Usually it’s people that get to you on a very deep and soulful level. The big picture here is that neither of them want to let this go. You see this very often when someone dies and the family fights over the money and/or possessions. It's a way of keeping the dead person alive. Johnny and Amber are trading off their reputations and careers because they cannot live with each other and cannot live without each other. The sex must have been epic.
But who is wrong? This is not a case of a woman abusing a man. He is suing her. He is in the power position. They both acted badly in the relationship. Johnny is the one perpetuating this drama. And since he has something he didn't have in the British lawsuit he lost, his predictive Sun is trining Jupiter, he should win. This is a waste of the best aspect you will ever have in your life. He could have used it to rehabilitate his career. But his genuine belief that he is a God and that no one should go up against him, well, isn't that what brings all inflated egos down? Jupiter is the law. Casey Anthony won her trial for killing her daughter while she was in Jupiter. But there is no way, this is a true win. He's damaging himself.
Amber doesn't have a bad chart. When the dust settles, think Meghan Markle also in Jupiter at the time of the Oprah interview, the truth will surface. Amber will come back. Will she have a $50 million debt hanging over her? Can she win an appeal? Will she win her lawsuit? My prediction? She will find a way to survive this and possibly benefit from it. What kind of PTSD does she get left with? Tauruses are not fragile. They're in it for the long game.

UPDATE: "An infamous Rolling Stone profile from this period paints Depp as a fading and deluded icon, cut off from reality by his money, his fame, and copious amounts of drugs. He is 'a punchline: bankrupt, isolated and one more mistake from being blackballed from his industry.'" I live in Hollywood and here's what you have to really watch out for. No one will want to work with him again, because they don't respect him. And there is always another prettier, sexier person waiting in the wings. It's the circle of life in Hollywood.
I am currently watching Court TV, about the trial ( after the trial ) and as a Gemini, he is guilty as sin.
I believe that they both brought out the worst in each other. As a Taurus Amber is not the type to
back down and that is how things kept escalating. Great article Melanie!
