I haven’t done a fun character analysis in a while so I figured it was time, and there’s a new Jason Bourne movie coming out, so I figured he was a good one to attempt. He is the world’s favorite amnesiac badass after, all! (the only one?)
Jason Bourne's natal positions:
I gravitate toward a Sagittarius Sun and Mercury, with the two conjunct (aligned with one another). Why? He’s a world traveller (granted not necessarily for fun), he knows who-knows-how-many languages, and he seems to be quite intelligent with a breadth of knowledge. While Gemini is the sign of the mind, Sagittarius can focus the intellectual energy. And Mercury conjunct the Sun brings a little of the Gemini energy into the mix since Mercury rules Gemini.
I’m inclined to put his Sun and Mercury in the 4th house because he obviously was someone who was dedicated to his country, which is ruled by the 4th house. I mean, you’ve gotta be pretty darn tootin’ dedicated to sign up for what he signed up for! That would make him a Virgo Rising, which does make some sense - he tries to blend in the background, not be seen, not very loud, sort of an unassuming demeanor. Virgo is also one of the signs of service.
There is definitely an intensity to Jason Bourne, so I like a Scorpio Venus for him, which would help make him extremely loyal, attracted to the dark side, and seeming like a loner-type. It would be in his 3rd house, adding to his intellect.
Given his strength and stamina, I like Mars in Aries, the sign Mars naturally rules (giving an ease to his physical abilities) and in the 8th house. The Aries/8th house combo is also one that makes a lot of sense for someone in the military since both rule war.
For his Moon, I actually feel like it should be in Cancer, but early in the sign so it falls in the 10th house instead of the 11th house. There is a sensitive side to him, a side that cares about people and has a conscience (the whole thing starts off with him not being able to kill the guy with the kids there, after all - though who could kill the smoking hot Idris Elba?). So I gravitate toward a water sign there, but putting it in the 10th house makes his career the most important thing in his life, and brings a slight detachment with his emotions where he doesn’t show them as much, instead trying to be dutiful and responsible and do the right thing.
Memory loss: Neptune
For losing his memory, I would anticipate transit Neptune being involved, since Neptune makes everything so very foggy and gets you lost in a haze. Likely a hard aspect - conjunction, square, opposition - to Mercury, ruler of the mind, and/or the Moon, ruler of memory.
A hard aspect to the 6th house cusp or ruler, the house of health, would also make sense since it’s the result of physical injury. Neptune square the 6th and 12th house cusps would make the most sense of all, having Neptune impacting health but also with the 12th house involved, this house is naturally ruled by Neptune and can also show the isolation that comes afterward. In terms of being on the run,
I would anticipate 9th house and 12th house aspects and transits since the 9th house rules far travel and the law and the 12th house rules isolation and being on your own; I especially like transit Uranus in the 9th house while transit Saturn is in the 12th house (Uranus in the 9th house show the bouncing around and the sudden, unexpected nature of it, and Saturn in the 12th house would show the removal from normal society).
