Rachel Welch passed away at 82 this past February. Rachel Welch was born Jo Raquel Tejada to a Bolivian father and an American mother. She took her first husband’s name Welch and kept it after her divorce as she was advised not to change it back. The reasoning was to avoid being typecast as a Latina.

Rachel Welch was an iconic sex symbol in the 1960s and 1970s. The movie that solidified her as a sex symbol was One Million Years BC, featuring her in a deer skin bikini. However, to Welch’s own admission, she never really wanted to be a sex symbol and refused to be photographed nude for Playboy Magazine.


What in her chart would signify she would achieve such fame as a sex symbol/movie star?

She was born on 5 September 1940 at 14:04 in Chicago, Illinois, USA.

  1. She has Neptune, the ruler of film, square her Ascendant, and both are square the Galactic Centre, giving high visibility. The Galactic Centre does not guarantee you will be famous if this touches important points of your chart. You may be well-known in your community.
  2. The Sun is your essence of being and your identity, and it is conjunct the passionate and sexy (sex-oriented) Mars. It also gives her determination, drive, and the ability to stand up for herself.
  3. Venus, the planet of feminine beauty, is semi-square with the sexy Mars and her Sun. This combination amps up the sex appeal of the actress.
  4. Jupiter/Saturn is trine Sun/Mars. A lot is going on with these aspects.
    • Jupiter is the ruler of her Ascendant, and it is in a positive trine aspect to her Sun, which is her identity. Jupiter makes things bigger and brings good things. However, Jupiter can bring too much of a good thing.
    • Saturn is the planet of discipline, limits, and structure. In a trine to Sun/Mars, Saturn helps with providing the person with the discipline required to complete tasks and get things done.   The Saturn/Jupiter conjunctions can calm Jupiter’s excess. This aspect helped Welch with her not selling herself out and which could have resulted in her being a porn star instead.
