When Is Jim Carrey’s Birthday?

Jim Carrey’s birthday is January 17.

Jim Carrey’s Sun Sign Is In Hardworking Capricorn (And The “Jokester” Third House)

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

Jim Carrey’s astrological sign is Capricorn. He was born on January 17, 1962, in Newmarket, Ontario, Canada.

People born with a Capricorn Sun are stable and hardworking. Jim Carrey’s Sun is in the third house of his birth chart, which is about communication and expression. The third house is also the “jokester” house (clever and pithy), and of course we all know Jim Carrey as an actor today, but he found fame as a comedian as a break-out cast member of the groundbreaking sketch show, In Living Color, in the early 1990s.

It’s known that Jim Carrey struggles with depression, so he may have used laughter as a way to overcome personal pain. He may be very hard on himself, critical. Like many comedians, he may use jokes to break through that.

Capricorn is also the sign that rules the skin, bones, the jaw/teeth, and Jim Carrey has a classic Capricorn face with a strong jaw that he uses as part of his signature physical comedy.

The third house also has a lot of the same qualities as Gemini, the third zodiac sign and the sign of the twins. Jim Carry does amazing impressions (ability to twin!) in addition to his physical comedy.

Jim Carreys’s Moon Is In Think-Your-Feelings Gemini

•Your moon sign governs the “inner you” and influences your emotions•

Jim Carrey’s natal chart moon is in Gemini. People with moon in Gemini think they’re feelings.
They need a lot of communication. They need to be able to talk about what they feel.

However, Jim Carrey’s moon is in the eighth house of his birth chart, a “secretive” placement. This echoes his Sun being in the third house, in Capricorn. One of the themes of his life, which is echoed with his Capricorn Sun, is that he represses thoughts. Slipping into self-judgement may be his Achilles’ heel.

Jim Carrey’s Rising Sign Is In Scorpio, His “Mask”

•Your rising sign, or ascendant, is the first impression you make. Like a filter, it “tints” your Sun sign•

Jim Carrey’s Rising Sign is Scorpio. This means he is a keen observer.

Scorpio Rising people wear a mask of secrecy. You don’t really ever know who they are. This is a strength of Jim Carrey’s career in that he can absorb and almost psychically become another person and go into character. Combined with his humor, he can hide behind who he is.

Love Astrology for Jim Carrey: Avoidant Detacher

•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.

Jim Carrey has most of the planets packed down at the bottom of his chart, in Capricorn and Aquarius. He has both Venus and Mars, the planets of love, in Capricorn (just like his Sun).

Venus and Mars in Capricorn can make someone a little distant when it comes to relationships. They want to have a long-term partner, build something traditional, but they can struggle to share feelings in a way that allows a relationship to flourish. So while they make great providers, they need an understanding partner who doesn’t force them to be all emo (even though his Scorpio Rising can make him emo!)

So there’s some “confusion” in his chart. Because of his Scorpio Rising, when he likes someone, he may become obsessive about it. He’s what you call an avoidant detacher because once someone gets close to him, that Capricorn Sun, Venus and Mars may pull back, go cold or put up a wall. Additionally, his Gemini moon might start to flip-flop and say, “Wait, is this right? Should I? Should I not?”

Jim Carrey’s Fourth Aquarius Placement Is His South Node

•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).

Jim Carrey also has four placements in Aquarius (Jupiter, Saturn, Mercury) and the South node of the moon. In a way, he’s “from another planet.” He thinks unlike other people.

His Mercury and Jupiter are right next to each other, at 14 degrees Aquarius, so he has unique ideas, and he just can’t help himself, probably blurts them out! Because of his Saturn in Aquarius, he’s able to actually take that wacky Aquarian energy to the bank as he has through all his characters.

His past life energy is Aquarius, the South Node, and his destiny point, the North Node, what he’s here to do, is in Leo, the sign of the actor, the sign of Hollywood.

People born with an Aquarius South Node struggle to feel like they belong. They may feel like outsiders and have a hard time opening their hearts. There’s a theme throughout Jim Carrey’s entire birth chart around this: showing and revealing emotions can strike fear in his heart. He fears being engulfed, getting lost in someone, but more than anything, he may fear abandonment.

Crisis Planet Neptune Is Next To Jim Carrey’s Scorpio Rising

•Neptune reveals where your imagination reigns supreme and where you can heal and do inner work•

Jim Carrey’s natal chart shows Neptune next to his ascendant in Scorpio, in his twelfth house. Neptune reveals where your imagination reigns supreme and also where you can heal and do inner work. This often shows up for someone who comes into this lifetime with a heavy load to bear. Jim Carrey has mentioned in interviews his childhood wasn’t easy because of his mother’s chronic illness and addiction, and his family’s financial insecurity. To escape harsh reality and the neglect he experienced, he used comedy to soothe and distract himself.

While there’s a lot of heavy energy that he came into this lifetime with, what will free him is his Leo North Node. He also has Uranus, the planet of quirkiness, freedom and liberation, in Leo, right on his midheaven (the career line at the top of his chart). Jim Carrey really was meant to bring his eccentricity to Hollywood. While that makes him materially successful, it doesn’ thel him heal his heart and feel like he belongs.

Healing Comet Chiron Is In Pisces for Jim Carrey

•Your Chiron sign can reveal your core wound in this lifetime and hold the key to unlocking your personal superpower•

Jim Carrey’s Chiron is in Pisces, the sign of solitude and isolation, and in his fourth house of home and family. Work around family of origin, even past life family trauma, is what he could do. Even though he brings so many amazing gifts into this lifetime, allowing people to see his heart, get close to him and coping with the anxiety, can take a lot from him. He would probably respond well to hypnotherapy, EMDR, talk therapy, somatic body-based therapy, and even plant medicine.

Interesting note about Jim Carrey’s birth chart: tense angles

Jim Carrey has an interesting chart that has a lot of oppositions in it, as explained above. His chart has tense angles that show a personality and a life that may be filled with challenges, a lot of hard things that he has to stretch through. While he may be pulled between a lot of extremes, bottom line: Jim Carrey is a gifted genius who draws his humor from feeling, as evidenced by his birth chart.
