Six Feet Under Astrology
The SIX FEET UNDER family is Ruth, David Sr., Nate, David Jr., and Claire. Five out of the six actors playing this family have a sun and moon in a fixed sign. And not only that, even the creator of the show, Alan Ball, (writer of American Beauty) is a "double-fixed." Altogether, this is six fixed signs! Alan Ball is a Taurus with a Scorpio moon; (I refer to the actors by their character name) Nate Fisher is a Leo with an Aquarius moon; David Fisher is an Aquarius with a Taurus moon; Ruth Fisher is a Scorpio with an Aquarius moon; and her husband David Fisher is a Taurus with a Scorpio moon -the exact same sun and moon as Alan Ball!
That is five "double-fixed" people including the creator of the show, Alan Ball! Also interesting that the father in the show has the same sun and moon sign as him. When Alan Ball was casting the show, did he feel particularly drawn to this actor who had his same sun and moon sign?
Other discoveries includes the fact that the two brothers -David and Nate- who are opposites in the show are also astrological opposites: Leo and Aquarius. This is a classic astrological coupling which also occured in "I Love Lucy" with Lucy and Ethelle Mertz being Leo and Aquarius respectively. Opposites create an entertaining dynamic-
