When Is Zendaya’s Birthday?

Zendaya’s birthday is September 1.

Zendaya’s Sun Sign Is In Perfectionist Virgo

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

Mononymous Zendaya’s astrological sign is Virgo. She was born on September 1, 1996, in Oakland, California.

Virgos are known as the worker bees of the zodiac, taking on way more than seemingly human in their pursuit for perfection. Virgos are also associated with humility; they tend to be incredibly focused on their craft and spend hours honing their skills.

Zendaya exudes a natural, quiet confidence, despite the inherent Virgo preference to exist behind-the-scenes. Her Virgo Sun happens to be energized by her Jupiter in Capricorn, giving her a more mature presence that feels wise beyond her years. Jupiter is a planet concerned with faith in one’s self, i.e., confidence. Jupiter also can show you where abundance and opportunity lies in the natal chart.

Zendaya may be a young celebrity but she’s certainly earned the respect of her thespian peers; she is the youngest lead actress winner in Emmy Award history and also the first black woman to win twice for Best Actress in a Drama Series for her role in Euphoria.

Zendaya’s Rising Sign Is Unique Aquarius

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

Zendaya is an Aquarius Rising.

Aquarius is known as the humanitarian of the zodiac, striving for an idealized vision of the world. Aquarius risings are also incredibly team-oriented with a deep love for community. 

Zendaya is known for having an all-Black glam team, expressing how important it is to “support young Black designers and Black photographers,” adding that “everything is done with intention” in an interview with Essence magazine for its 50th Anniversary cover story. 

Zendaya’s Moon Explains Her Fashion Icon Status

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

Zendaya’s moon is in Taurus, a sweet, earthy sign that loves nothing more than a good hug or a long nap. Taurus moons crave stability, preferring to be methodical with their steps as opposed to leaping into the unknown. 

Taurus is ruled by the planet Venus, concerned with all things beautiful and sartorial. Not only is Zendaya a brilliant actress, she happens to be a fashion icon in her own right, becoming the youngest person to ever win the CFDA Fashion Icon award at the CFDA Fashion Awards in 2021.

With Zendaya’s moon located in her third house of social media and community, it’s no surprise that she was tapped to co-chair the 2024 Met Gala along with Bad Bunny, Jennifer Lopez, Chris Hemsworth and Anna Wintour. No coincidences that the theme for the 2024 Met Gala is “Sleeping Beauties: Reawakening Fashion” (Taurus loves a good nap!)

Zendaya’s Has 2 Chart Rulers Influencing Past/Future Vibes

•Your chart ruler is the planet that rules over your rising sign•

As an Aquarius rising, Zendaya’s happens to have two chart rulers, giving us more flavor for her personal avatar. Think of your chart ruler like the character you play in the movie of your life.

Zendaya has both Saturn (the planetary timekeeper of the past) and Uranus (the planet of the future) at the helm of her birth chart. Of course, Aquarius is also the zodiac sign associated with technology and robots (there’s that Uranian influence coming in) while Saturn is associated with structure or form.

No one does past- and future-look references better than Zendaya as she effortlessly channels archival looks for a modern audience: the iconic Mugler couture look she donned for the premiere of Dune: Part Two basically broke the internet (another Uranian keyword) with her co-star and friend, Timothée Chalamet, among other brilliant red carpet moments.

Love Astrology of Zendaya: A Contradictory Cocktail in Cancer

•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.

Zendaya happens to have her Mars and Venus both in Cancer, adding an extra shell of privacy around her love affairs.

Mars and Venus types tend to be flirtatious and enigmatic, rarely alone for too long. Zendaya and her current beau, actor Tom Holland, have been at the center of romance rumors since meeting on the set of Spider Man: Homecoming in 2016 (they were caught smooching on camera in 2021, ultimately putting those rumors to rest).

While Cancer is a sign that craves comfort and safety, Mars and Venus tends to spice things up, creating a contradictory cocktail of energy that might leave Zendaya toeing a line between boredom and excitement. 

With her Mars and Venus in Cancer, Zendaya yearns for someone with whom to nurture and bond. Chivalry goes a long way in her books, as well as someone who’s down to explore the latest music and art scenes (creativity is massively important to Cancer types). Fans were recently treated to not one but two sightings of the notoriously private couple at Beyoncé’s Renaissance concert in 2023.

Zendaya’s South Node Is In Independent Aries

•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).

Zendaya has her South Node (past-life karma) in Aries and her North Node (destiny) in Libra. With a South Node in Aries, Zendaya might find herself taking charge more often than not, even though she might need a second opinion, or more importantly, a breather. 

Zendaya’s Aries South Node is located in her second house of work and money, lending to some potential workaholic tendencies. As a cardinal fire sign, Aries likes to charge ahead (very Energizer Bunny vibes). Zendaya could find herself jumping from one work project to the next, only to run into burnout or over-exhaustion if she isn’t disciplined about her self-care. 

With her North Node in Libra in the eighth house, Zendaya is here to learn how to protect her peace and prioritize her mental health. Collaboration, whether artistically or romantically, is incredibly important as a grounding mechanism for her. 

Venus in Cancer takes on significance as it rules over her North Node, her destiny. Zendaya is not here to just play house, she’s looking to build a home, through thick and thin. 

Pluto In Zendaya’s Birth Chart Means

•Pluto holds the key to our personal chamber of secrets, everything from money, sex, power•

Pluto is the planet of transformation, dealing with some pretty intense matters in its quest for empowerment. Zendaya’s Pluto happens to be located in her tenth house of career and legacy, a rather public facing part of her natal chart. 

Her tenth house Pluto reflects her career arc, from Disney Star to Hollywood A-Lister. Not many are able to make the transition, but Zendaya has done so in an empowering fashion.

However, Pluto tends to unearth what’s hidden in the shadows and can expose the ugly side of humanity. At the 2015 Oscars, an E! News correspondent made offensive remarks about Zendaya’s dreadlocks. Then 18-year old Zendaya responded on Instagram (tenth house and public forums), highlighting the comments as “ignorant slurs and pure disrespect.”
