I happened upon Silverwheel Astrology: Dr Who Hates Astrology! while searching for something. I became so engrossed looking at this, I totally forgot about whatever I started looking typically me.

I found a website to enter David's birth information into and came up with the following:

Hi there, here is the interpretation of the astrological chart that you asked for. Also attached is a .GIF graphic file which depicts your chart wheel. Thank you for visiting the Astrolabe WEB site at This report has been created especially for you. It represents your Unique picture at the time you were born and at the place you were born. If you are unsure of the exact time of day of your birth (or the date or the place), the reading will probably not seem as accurate as it could be in certain places, but other parts will seem to be very appropriate. You will notice at certain places in the reading that contradictory information seems to be given. This is to be expected, because the personality of most people is extremely complex. For example, at times we are quite shy and at other times we are very aggressive, and so forth. You will also notice that, at certain points in the reading, certain patterns may be repeated over and over, especially in a longer more detailed report than this one. This is also to be expected. This simply means that your horoscope has an extremely strong focus on this particular pattern and that you should pay extra close attention to what is said about it. Now, on with your Report!

Name: David Tennant
April 18 1971
2:00 PM Time Zone is BST
55 57 0 -3 29 0

Rising Sign is in 29 Degrees Leo
You love to be the center of attention and you want to appear strong, confident and dominant. You are very proud of yourself, sometimes quite vain even. When all around you are bedraggled and falling apart, you look like a million bucks! Very dignified and honorable, you enjoy the power and privilege, but not the responsibilities, that come with leadership. You are very idealistic but can also be quite stubborn. Others impress you only if they have integrity (but wealth, power and influence can also turn your head). You prefer rich, elegant surroundings and possessions, and will try to acquire them as your budget allows. Physically, you are very impressive - - at your best you have a regal, charismatic demeanor and bearing. Try not to be such a showoff!

Sun is in 27 Degrees Aries.
By nature, you are very energetic and high-spirited. You are fiercely independent -- you must be first in everything you do, and you enjoy taking risks. You are the one who will rush in where angels fear to tread. Quite brilliant at initiating new projects, you are terrible at following them through to completion. You are an enthusiastic leader but you tend to be a reluctant follower. Often you are quick to anger, but you usually recover just as fast, regretting later things you said when you were upset. One of your best traits is that you are simple and direct, blunt and honest -- just be careful you do not hurt others' feelings. Your need to be competitive at all costs may provoke resistance from others, but, as long as you maintain your usual Sunny good humor, this should not prove to be a major problem for you.

Moon is in 27 Degrees Capricorn.
You are serious and shy and very uncomfortable in those situations where spontaneous and exuberant emotional reactions seem called for. An achiever, you prefer doing practical, worthwhile things that produce tangible results. You need role models to respect, love and emulate. You tend to feel that you're a failure unless you get an important and highly respected position in life. Don't be so hard on yourself! For you, practical needs always win out over emotional considerations. Remember that you too have the right to comfort, security and love. Dutiful and patient, when you make an emotional commitment, you sign on for the long haul -- your love is long- enduring.

Mercury is in 00 Degrees Taurus.
A slow and careful thinker, you like to present ideas visually and concretely. Abstractions are quite difficult for you to understand. For you, everything must be practical and useful in order to merit your attention. You are a perfectionist -- you enjoy being skillful enough to handle the dexterity required of fine craftsmanship. Cautious and conservative in your thinking, you are very slow to change your opinions. You are more apt to respond to an appeal to your feelings than to an appeal to logic or reason.

Venus is in 23 Degrees Pisces.
You have a dreamy, fanciful, romantic nature and a very creative imagination. Indeed, at times, your private fantasies are more appealing than the reality around you and it is difficult for you to leave them. You tend to be unselfish and giving in relationships and are extremely sensitive of the needs of others. Be very sure that those you help are worthy of your devotion and are not merely taking advantage of your innocence and naivete.

Mars is in 21 Degrees Capricorn.
Extremely ambitious, you are willing to work very hard to reach the goals you have set for yourself. Very practical, cautious and conservative, you demand tangible results for your efforts. You need to excel in whatever you do, and you have the required sense of responsibility, dedication and self-discipline to bring it about. Beware of your tendency to judge others only by their degree of status and prestige, or by how well they will be able to advance you in your climb to the top.

Jupiter is in 05 Degrees Sagittarius.
You have a very strong sense of ethics and morality. You are widely read and may also be widely traveled because you are sincerely interested in expanding your knowledge of the world about you. At times, you have an annoying tendency to be self-righteous and preachy about your belief system. You are usually quite idealistic and you demand the right to be able to explore the entire world of experiences yourself. Remember to grant others the similar right -- be tolerant, not dogmatic.

Saturn is in 22 Degrees Taurus.
Complete freedom of choice makes you ill at ease. You must have a firm, ordered, secure foundation in your life in order to feel comfortable. You do not adapt easily and tend to fear the new and untried. You constantly fear that you do not have enough (love, property, material things, etc.) and this makes you tend toward being selfish, withdrawn and stingy. If you try to surround yourself with supportive people in your environment, you will become more emotionally self-supporting.

Uranus is in 10 Degrees Libra.
You, as well as your entire peer group, have a very free, unstable and unconventional approach to relationships and emotional commitments. You will be attracted to experiments in marriage and shared lifestyles. Personal freedom is more important to you than entangling emotional bonds. In the realm of art and aesthetics, you are attracted to the bizarre, shocking and unusual.

Neptune is in 02 Degrees Sagittarius.
You, and your entire generation, are heavily involved in investigating and idealizing foreign and exotic intellectual systems and religious philosophies. The most extreme ideals will be pursued with gusto. You will be at the forefront of humanitarian attempts to improve the lot of those who are in need of assistance. You will be comfortable with the concept of the "global village."

Pluto is in 27 Degrees Virgo.
For your entire generation, this will be a time when profound changes in society's attitude toward work, duty and responsibility will be initiated. Radical changes in attitudes toward personal health and general nutrition will be promulgated and gain wide acceptance and practice.

N. Node is in 21 Degrees Aquarius.
As long as someone else (or a group or organization) appeals to your intellectual sensibilities, you'll try to ally yourself with them in some way. You may find that you always seem to get involved with many wide-ranging groups -- so much so that you find it difficult to fit them all into your busy schedule. Your many friends and acquaintances provide you with needed stimulation. You're loyal and fair-minded -- you try to spend time equally with all your friends, never concentrating on just one or two for any length of time. Although probably quite conservative yourself, you're attracted to those who are a bit offbeat or eccentric -- you enjoy watching their minds work.

Years ago I dabbled a bit into doing natal charts, but I don't remember much of it anymore. If anyone has a deep understanding of this, feel free to explain it in more detail.

I edited this post on 6-28-08 for a time zone error. This should be right this time.

This will not impress David one bit. It is not just his character the Doctor that hates astrology, so does he.

Sharon Brown said...

Thank goodness he'll never see my blog!

hi Sharon, thanks for the link to my post on astrology and Dr Who. Enjoying reading your blog.

But to anonymous: we're ahead of you on this post was on how David Tennant hates astrology and how I mistake David Tennant for the Dr, hence DT hates astrology you see ;-) it was all in there, it just needed a sharp pair of eyes onto it, ha ha.

the chart you printed out, Sharon, had the wrong birth time on though, he was 2 am birth, as far as I'm aware, not 2pm, giving him a Leo ascendant (born to be an actor :-) ). I've been considering doing an update on that post, so thanks for the prod to action :-)

Sharon Brown said...

I wondered why I came up with a Virgo ascendant when you had written he has a 25 Leo ascendant. I was using 2PM GDT because Kitty had written his birth time as 14:00 GDT.

Are you sure about the 2AM time? I've tried making up another chart using 2AM, but that has a 21 Capricorn ascendant.

After some research on time zones and daylight savings time, I found out I should use BST (British Summer Time) instead of GDT. GDT isn't a recognized time zone at Astrolabe. If I use 2PM BST, David's chart has him with 29 Leo ascendant. Does this sound right to you?

I've always noticed how a person's personality is affected by their natal chart. I think David needs to do some research on astrology.

I love your blog!

barbara said...

thankyou Sharon!
Hey, you are right with the 2pm birthtime of course!!! what was I thinking! duh! I still get it 25 leo rising with 2pm but sometimes an atlas will give a slight variation on latitude and longtitude for around the same area of birth, it might be just my astro atlas for Broxburn... yes BST time zone will be the same as GDT I reckon.

But I have noticed without fail that when there is some confusion like this about birthtime there will be a Neptune connection to the asc/rising degree somehow, clouding the issue and making things appear unclear. Neptune is currently at 24 Aquarius, right opposite the debated Leo degrees!

anyway, I best get on, as want to get finished some work so I can settle down for Dr Who tonight. The Daleks are coming! gulp!

whoever said...

Where did you find the time of birth? I've been looking for some time & wasn't able to find it. Just wondered how accurate the source was.

Since the birth time is not really known I never pegged him as having a Leo Ascendant. I can see him with Libra rising instead. The charm, the dimples, that smile! Oh yes, Libra...I would bet money on it.
