Is movie star Christian Bale a Dark Knight or a White Knight?

Go to fullsize imageChristian Bale, 34, stars in The Dark Knight, the Batman series, which broke all box office records when it opened in the US on July 18th. This should have been the crowning glory of his young life. He should be on top of the world, ready to take his career to the next level with tons more money for future roles (the first Batman movie that he did several years ago, Batman Returns was a blockbuster as well). But instead this may be a low point since his mother and sister filed assault and battery charges against Bale in London on Sunday, the day before his picture opened in England.

Is Christian Bale actually a dark and sinister Mr. Hyde? Is he capable of violence against his mother and sister? Or is he actually a very nice man, more like a white knight? Let’s look at his astrology and see.

christian-bale-natal-chart.jpegChristian Bale was born on January 30, 1974 in Haverfordwest, England. No time known.

Bale is an Aquarian—walks to the beat of his own drummer, lives outside the box, novel, odd and his own man. His antenna is definitely pointed toward the outer limits of consciousness. You can see that in the choices he makes with movie roles, like American Psycho and The Mechanic, both spooky and scary portrayals—deadly dark. But Aquarians are also humanitarians and care beyond words for others—they have a sense of ‘it’s all about all of us’. He is the opposite of an elitist—he is compassionate and caring, but is not big on hugs, and is not a “feely” kind of guy. With his ruler, Uranus in Libra, he is also smart to genius and with Saturn in Gemini, he has the Grand Air Trine—he lives in the world of concept and ideas—which makes him not one to invite to a party where he would schmooze or kvetch and kvell with anyone.

Christian also has Venus—for love or money and how he feels about how he was mothered—at the critical 29th degree of Capricorn—cold and distant, and retrograde. With his Moon in Taurus as well as his Mars, he is sensitive and thin-skinned and has no time for someone to cajole or badger him about who he is, how he feels, and the subject of money can set him off. The day of the alleged incident, Neptune, the planet that confuses and distorts, was conjunct his Mercury, how he thinks and speaks. My hunch is that at a time of celebration—his movie premiere in London—he and his family were drinking and perhaps things got out of hand. (Because of his natal chart he would not have had a very strong relationship with his mother anyway).

Conversations heated up, there were allegations—hurtful words slung like poisoned arrows—and Christian might have sounded threatening to his mother and sister. I’ll bet my last pound sterling that he got mad about a money issue strangled by past family history, and he exploded. The two women put their heads together and said, also while drunk and revengeful for all the years of non-interaction with him, “Let’s show Mr. Big-shot who he really is.” And off they went to the police station to report ‘battery’ and the rest is the sordid story that has unfolded.

Christian Bale may be incapable of having a “picket fence” committed marriage (he was married and has a young daughter, but apparently is not married now) with a woman, and he might think and act differently than his fellow actors—and yes, he may even be a bit odd and different—but capable of assault and battery? Not on your life or his.

Christian Bale is a decent, internalized young man who loves to act (don’t forget that Steven Spielberg cast him in Empire of the Sun when Bale was 12) and who loves his privacy. He often talks about his ‘dark side’ and ‘demons’ yet his chart indicates that he is more likely inspired and in concert with silent and invisible forces that enforce and confirm who he is and what he knows.

Christian’s progressed Sun conjuncts my Natal Sun in Pisces and his progressed Moon is on my Leo ascendant. “Christian, call me—we won’t do lunch, but we will talk about cabbages and kings and the way the world could be if we would just let it.”

I saw Batman Returns and The Dark Knight and they are two of my all-time favorite movies. Go see Christian Bale and Heath Ledger give two seamless performances and literally make the movie a worthwhile two+ hour experience.


He is AUTHOR OF Clearing for the Millennium, �Signs and Wonders-Understanding the language of God and You're Not Who You Think You Are-A Breakthrough Guide to Discover your Authentic Self will be published by Atria Books, a division of Simon & Schuster in December of this year.

A member of the National Association of Transpersonal Psychology and the American Federation of Astrologers, Gaulden founded the Sedona Intensive, a personal growth and empowerment program, to help clients retrieve their authentic selves and tap into their inner power.

Gaulden coined the term astroanalysis-a combination of Jungian psychology and astrology-to describe how he helps free clients from compulsions, addictions, and unresolved issues, which keep them from living a life of peace and joy.

Albert saw things others didn't and heard what they couldn't from the age of two. When he was five he asked his mother why she seemed more like his dad and his dad more like the mother. As a pre-schooler he was tuned into the rich world of intuition and past lives even though he had no one to shepherd him through these recollections and recalls. At Birmingham-Southern he click connected with the unique psychological work and world of Swiss psychoanalyst, Dr. Carl Jung and his take on the shadow self. Gaulden believes that all-seeing and all-knowing is born within a child and it is the false and mundane world that erases his memory of what is really true. The integration of the divided self, putting one back together through a conscious fusion with his or her shadow is the underpinning of his work in the Sedona Intensive.

Albert studied with renowned astrology Byrd Knapp, Darrell Harris and Katharine de Jersey, as well as took Awareness Classes with Lee Jones at the Spiritualist Church in Los Angeles in the 70's, and attended the Corrado Academy of Perception in 1978 which led to his meeting actor John Travolta using the tools of manifestation learned at the Academy, and selling John El Adobe de Tajiguas, a 35-acre estate that abutted Ronald Reagan's ranch near Gaviota Beach in Southern California.

Gaulden worked in 1986 with international-best selling author of The Celestine Prophecy, James Redfield in Albert's innovative and one-of-a-kind personal empowerment program, the Sedona Intensive, which he founded in 1982. Albert was hired to use his gifts as an astro-intuitive to help cast Redfield's movie of The Celestine Prophecy.

Gaulden travels the world to teach and speak and finds Egypt particularly one of the most intriguing countries in the world. In December he will be returning with a tour group of clients and friends to the Land of the Nile and Pharaohs and the Great Pyramid of Cheops, the Sphinx and other ancient digs and monuments in Upper and Lower Egypt.

His clients include sports figures, actors, royalty, Wall Street executives, men and women and young people from all walks of life who are eager to face those defects of character that keep them from being who they really are. He rigorously maintains the anonymity of his clients.

Additionally, Gaulden is a motivational speaker on such popular themes as "Mr. Right is Usually Mr. Wrong-Falling in Love With Make-Believe", "Take Your Power Back", "The Power of a Great Idea", the Death of Terror and the Rebirth of Bliss, �"Why Relationships Don't Work but How They Can" and many other provocative topics.
