When Is Jennifer Lopez’s Birthday?

JLo’s birthday is July 24.

Jennifer Lopez’s Sun Sign Is In Superstar Leo

•The Sun represents the essence of your personality, your main character energy•

Jennifer Lopez (also known as Jennifer Lynn Affleck or J.Lo) was born on July 24, 1969, in Bronx, New York. JLo’s astrological sign is Leo.

As a Leo Sun, Jennifer embodies the star power of a Hollywood A-Lister: a beautiful, talented, gifted performer who can seemingly do it all—from movies to dance to fragrance to music. She was the first woman to simultaneously have a No. 1 album (J.Lo) and film (The Wedding Planner), solidifying her celebrity superstardom in the early 2000s, among other notable accomplishments in her storied entertainment career.

Mercury joins J.Lo’s Sun in Leo

Jennifer Lopez also has Mercury (communication and perspective) in fixed and fiery Leo. With Mercury and the Sun coming together, there’s a tremendous self-focus in her birth chart: she’s got a vision for what she wants and refuses to settle for less. With Mercury near her Sun, though, she might struggle to let other people’s perspectives into the fold.

Breaking the Internet Is In J.Lo’s Natal Chart

•Jupiter in your birth chart reveals where you’re adventurous and willing to take risks•
•Uranus shows where we’re prone to eccentricity or groundbreaking thought•

Jennifer Lopez’s natal chart features a dynamic conjunction between Jupiter (luck and abundance) and Uranus (genius and rebellious). Jupiter and Uranus meet once every 14 years, offering J.Lo powerful breakthroughs and trailblazing potential. In the sign of Libra, these opportunities would naturally arise through her artistry, fashion and relationships.

Before influencers reigned supreme, Lopez broke the internet in its nascency, wearing her legendary green plunging Versace number to the 2000 Grammy Awards (you know the one we’re talking about; it has it’s own Wikipedia page!). At the time, her dress was the most popular search query Google had ever seen (Jupiter), prompting Google to create its Image Search in response (Uranus rules technology).

Jupiter and Uranus in Libra can also symbolize electrifying and unusual relationships that might catch the public by surprise. Lopez has defied standard conventions of social construct with her four divorces and failed engagement to Alex Rodriguez. Ever the eternal romantic, at the time of this writing she is in her fifth marriage with fellow Leo superstar Ben Affleck. She and Ben dated in the early 2000s, their “Bennifer” romance plastered all over the early Internet.

Lopez’s Jupiter/Uranus conjunction is also embodied by her curves and notable derriere; J.Lo’s physique was instrumental broke down walls around conventional beauty standards, serving as an inspirational curvy icon for those seeking more diverse representation. Rapper Sir Mix-a-Lot says his iconic “Baby Got Back” lyrics were inspired by Lopez’s dancing as a “Fly Girl” on the groundbreaking 90s music-comedy program, In Living Color!

Jennifer Lopez’s South Node Is in Workhorse Virgo

•Astrologers use the nodes of the moon (found opposite each other in your birth chart) to determine where your destiny lies (North node) and what you were in past lifetimes (South node).

Jennifer Lopez has her South Node (past-life karma) in Virgo and her North Node (destiny) in Pisces. In this lifetime, Lopez is learning to loosen her grip on control and her fixation on the perfect outcome. She’s looking to work through her anxiety and mental health, prioritizing her health and self-care in her daily routine. 

At a low vibration, J.Lo with her south node in Virgo can manifest as a nit-picker, mirroring the extremely high standards she holds for herself. Lopez previously suffered from exhaustion-induced panic attacks in her late 20s, a time when she had let her self-care go in place of her career; she prioritized work during a phase that culminated in the emergence of her lifestyle empire, her debut studio album, a nascent film career and her first marriage.

Love Astrology of Jennifer Lopez: Peter Pan Energy

•Venus and Mars are the love planets in astrology. In your birth chart, Venus represents seduction and romance while Mars represents lust, motivation and erotic instincts.

Jennifer Lopez’s Mars and Venus form an elemental opposition: she has Mars in Sagittarius and Venus in Gemini, offering her relationships a sprinkle of Peter Pan energy.

Venus in Gemini types are attracted to banter and wit. Fun and flirty, they’re looking to be mentally stimulated in a dizzying back-and-forth of ideas. Venus in Gemini tends to have a youthful disposition, innately curious about those who can offer an interesting perspective. Variety is the spice of life for Venus in Gemini types, not your usual homebody types.

J.Lo’s Venus in Gemini energy is not unlike her Mars in Sagittarius. Both signs are concerned with exploration and tend to be drawn to experiences they can learn something from. Where Venus in Gemini might have a hard time understanding what it’s looking for in a relationship, Mars in Sagittarius can cut through the noise and rumors with a focus on the longer-term vision.

Lopez is on a love quest for her ideal soul mate, especially with her Neptune in Scorpio (relationship fantasies) near her Mars in Sagittarius. However, it’s important to note that Neptune can be a sensitive and delusional energy, potentially sweeping J.Lo up in a love bubble poised to burst at any moment. 

Jennifer Lopez and Ben Affleck Compatibility

While there is no hard and fast rule regarding synastry, Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez do share some interesting relational aspects. While we don’t know Jennifer’s birth time, we can point to her Sun, Mercury, Venus, and Mars for additional color around the greatest love story “never” told. 

Ben has a Mercury (communication) and Leo Sun conjunction, exactly like Jennifer! Both are romantic, passionate, loyal fire signs. At a high vibration, both respect the other’s creative perspective—showing interest in the other’s creative pursuits as the ultimate cheerleader. At a low vibration, ego could certainly steer the relationship ship, masking inherent insecurity; both could find themselves leaning into performative placating actions rather than authentic expression.

Leos are fixed signs unwilling to give up on a relationship; they’re incredibly loyal friends and supportive ride-or-dies. It makes sense that Bennifer was able to rekindle their relationship long after their previous high-profile breakup in January 2004 (Capricorn season, in Ben’s seventh house of partnership). At the time, the intense media focus took an emotional toll on the duo, with Gigli serving as a failed creative collaboration mirroring the demise of their relationship.

Lopez has her Mars in Sagittarius, squaring Ben’s Mars in Virgo. Mars describes our actions and behavior with both Ben and Jennifer’s impulsivities at odds with the other and requiring integration. With Mars in Virgo, Ben is looking for a partner equally committed to self-progress with a desire to improve the relationship. Affleck’s Mars in Virgo prefers being low-key, working diligently on their work, relationships, or themselves away from the public spotlight—a potentially sobering energy to Lopez’s fiery Mars in Sagittarius’ loud and idealistic tendencies. It’s not a straightforward Mars combination, although it can make for spicy bedroom moments as Mars can also denote lust.

Switching gears, Ben has his Venus in Cancer while Jennifer has her Venus in Gemini. Placements in sequential signs serve as corrective forces for the other, often inviting tension into the relationship fold. Venus points to our values and the way we relate to others. Keeping that in mind, Venus in Cancer looks for tender private exchanges of emotion while Venus in Gemini searches for intellectual stimulation, sometimes moving through feelings a little too quickly and publicly for Venus in Cancer’s liking.
