If a situation can't deteriorate, how can it have the potential to improve? Why are we all attracted to objects, arrangements and circumstances that have the ability to change? Because we have this nature too. It is something we can rightly feel proud of. And we too can get better or worse, depending on how we respond to various pressures. The full moon in your opposite sign is now showing you the kind of trouble you can expect if a delicate question isn't addressed. But also how wonderful things will be if it is.
Cate Blanchett picks up an Academy Award in 2014 for 'Best Actress'
Born in Melbourne, Australia, in 1969, Cate grew up fiercely independent after her father passed away when she was just 10 years old.
The stunning actress eventually enrolled at Australia's National Institute of Dramatic Arts, and after a few theatre performances, she won Sydney's Theatre Critics Circle's Best Newcomer of the Year award. Her first high-profile international role came when she played Queen Elizabeth I in the 1998 film Elizabeth, for which she gained an Oscar nomination for Best Actress.
Cate has since gone on to receive many accolades throughout her career, including three Golden Globe Awards and three BAFTA Awards. In 2004 she received the Academy Award for Best Actress in a Supporting Role for her role in The Aviator, and in 2014 she won her second Oscar for Best Actress for her role in Blue Jasmine.
The critically-acclaimed actress is married to screenwriter Andrew Upton, who she met on the set of a TV show. The couple have three sons: Dashiell, Roman and Ignatius.
