What Makes Simon Cowell So Critical?


What makes Simon Cowell so critical?  I’ve seen some articles puzzling over this when really it’s no puzzle at all.  i think what seems confusing is his Sun in Libra, the diplomatic sign.  This just goes to show how little importance the Sun can have for overall chart management.  It is what we aspire to, not necessarily what we are.

Here are some of the areas of interest in this chart.

Simon has Saturn in Capricorn so he is very judgmental.  He is every bit as judgmental of himself as he is of others.  He thinks everyone holds themselves to the same ridiculously high Capricorn standards that he does.  He’s missing the wonderful world of fun, spontaneity and creativity.  You often see this very stern look on his face when he is not flashing that gorgeous Libra smile.

Simon has Moon conjunuct Saturn.  His parents were probably stern and unforgiving, judging him as officiiously as he now judges others.  This can give a fake illusion of power and control.  I think this side of Simon annoys all of us who are conscious and responsible but the degree of annoyance will be relative to how big you buy into the whole Authority Figure thang.  For some who are programmed to respect their parents simply because they are parents, Simon’s tone will be familiar and reassuring.  Yikes.

A very important  factor is that Simon has Venus conjunct Pluto in the nitpicky critical sign of Virgo.  With this combination he is compulsively critical, LOVES being critical and ironically his critical observations are usually precise, correct and transformational.  Many lives have been changed by Simon’s comments, we would all agree.

Simon’s Jupiter is in the truth tellling sign of Sagittarius.  Simon can be so arrogant.  Well, he feels entitled to tell the truth as  if it were his very own prerogative.

Last but certainly not least, Simon’s South Moon Node is in Aries reflecting lifetimes of self assertion so powerful, thorough and successful that it putting himself out there is second nature to him.  This includes being exceedingly plain spoken as it is the polar opposite sign to his Libra Sun.   Did you ever wonder how Simon had the nerve to set himself up as judge and jury over the creative lives of people on two continents?  He never did.  Self doubt is not a character trait of someone with South Moon Node in Aries nor is self reflection.

One thing we can be sure of even without the birth time … Simon himself never questions his assertions or his mandate to deliver them.  He is supremely confident that his remarks are “the” truth.
