I Have A Crush On Paul Mescal’s Birth Chart

An indie heartthrob for the ages, Paul Mescal can be both reserved and nervous in interviews and press junkets, but still remains one of Gen Z’s biggest celebrity crushes. This makes a lot of us wonder, was this guy created perfectly by the stars themselves?

Whether it be a cute video of him earnestly attempting to understand how Jeopardy works or a heartfelt advocation of indies reaching wider audiences, Mescal always has a way of oozing grace and earnestness. TBH, I can’t help but swoon, especially at the sight of that powder blue blazer.

The question on everybody’s mind: What about Mescal’s chart explains this phenomenon of a man? Well, your comprehensive rundown has arrived. Here’s what we know about Mescal’s birth chart … including who he might be most compatible with.

Paul Mescal Is An Aquarius Sun.

While it was an Aquarius man who first broke my heart, I will gladly look the other way as I compliment Mescal for his air sign traits. Considered observant, aloof, and desiring personal freedom, Mescal’s love for indie filmmaking that tackles themes such as fatherhood, identity, and love all click into place. 

Aquarians are also considered grounded, rooted in truth and change. This gives some context to Mescal’s decision to delete his socials following uncomfortable, objectifying responses to his character in Hulu’s Normal People and working to rebuild his footing and now feeling “like the ground is tenuously below my feet,” he said to The New York Times.

His Moon is in cancer.

Cancers have a bit of a rep for being the emotional crybabies of the Zodiac. As an actor, being readily able to readily tap into your emotions is vital, characterizing Mescal’s pull towards openly vulnerable or emotionally volatile characters, most recently a struggling single father in Aftersun and the powerful role of Stanley in A Streetcar Named Desire. 

His Mercury Is In Capricorn.

Ruling how we communicate, it only takes a couple of interviews to see Mescal’s methodical, slow approach to language. Those with this placement are able to articulate what they like and what they don’t, and Mescal has been confident in his rebuking of gossip surrounding his life. 

His venus is in Pisces.

Another water placement, such a softie, it seems, when it comes to matters of the heart! Pisceans are considered the dreamers, in tune with imagination and creativity, attracted to poetry. This might explain the beautifully tender photos we saw of him and songwriter Phoebe Bridgers, known for her melancholic and vulnerable music. The two were often seen to be very affectionate in public, and a Pisces’ love is said to be romantic and sensitive. 

His Mars is in Aquarius.

An air of cleverness is often what motivates the decision-making of those with this placement. Often considered rebellious, it’s no wonder Mescal spurs his heart into his projects and chooses based on the confidence he feels he’s earned on each set.

Here Are the Most Compatible Signs with Aquarius.

Not to be the bearer of bad news, but Geminis, Libras, and Saggitarians have the best chance at stealing an Aquarian’s heart. These signs value intellect and rebellion and can bring a balance to the relationships. 

Those who don’t have these sun placements, don’t fret; we’re in the same boat. Dreamy Mr. Mescal probably doesn’t take that into account when looking for love.
