Capricorn Celebs

Keith Chegwin

There are many sides to lovable Keith Chegwin but the principle note is full on loud, somewhat quirky, and 100 percent original. More than a comic sidekick, more than an original bright spark and ex child actor, he is a complex guy, with that “Capricorn Sun, Leo Moon” thing going on.

There are many sides to lovable Keith Chegwin but the principle note is full on loud, somewhat quirky, and 100 percent original. More than a comic sidekick, more than an original bright spark and ex child actor, Keith Chegwine is a complex guy, with that “Capricorn Sun, Leo Moon” thing going on. His past alcoholism could have been affected by challenging astro combinations, during a time when he was temporarily lost from view in the eighties and nineties. Keith Chegwin might have been rather negative, and prone to thinking things would never work out how he wanted them to then, with moments of down heartedness. But his honest and openhearted book “Shaken but not Stirred” a moving account of his battle to overcome addiction has inspired many. Keith Chegwin is of course a natural leader. Make no mistake, as funny as Keith is he is a serious dude, someone who sits in the hot seat with authority. Mercury in Capricorn will make his capacities to build a showbiz career genial. He emanates self-assurance, stands his ground, takes no nonsense, knows his limits and realises what buttons he has to press to entertain his public. He also stands by his word, and of course is well liked by his show biz colleagues. He is, in short “a chip off the old block!” a really good guy dedicated to his profession. Keith Chegwin’s rather airhead act, has us laughing in the aisles as a result. But that act is built with intelligence, compassion, an understanding of human emotions and behavior. Keith Chegwin can inspire others when need be, he can carry the load when asked to. He is a good friend to a mate in dire straits. His early roles were in children’s drama and he later hit the proverbial mark when he was cast as Fleance in Roman Polanski’s Macbeth. Keith Chegwin has participated in Dad’s Army; performed in the West End in Tom Brown’s School Days, released some fun records, and did long time stints as a BBC disc jockey. He became big time popular presenting Cheggars Plays Pop and Saturday Superstore. He does have some Renaissance man tendencies, perhaps because he is able to communicate to the heart of his public so multifariously. Keith Chegwin endears himself to us, with that “chip monk cum pixie” look, so absolutely cuddly and gorgeous, making us giggle at his show biz acting out. Frankly people do not always know what to expect when it comes to Keith Chegwin! He is a law unto himself. That old phrase “if he did not exist someone would have to invent him” comes to mind! Venus in Capricorn would have affected his private life somewhat; it would make him rather olde worlde when it comes to romance! Keith Chegwin would want a girl friend he can play darts with, or drink down the pub, and fully supports his mission on planet earth. He might find expressing his deeper feelings difficult at times; the words he yearns to say sometimes do not come out exactly how he means them to. But he is a loving man. Keith Chegwin married in 1982, and is father to a lovely daughter Rose, but that marriage broke up and he later tied another knot with his long time partner Maria, a woman in her own right, he likes that, he likes a girl to be independent and self aware. Theirs would be a partnership of trust, because Keith needs solid ground under his feet when it comes to the emotional side of life. But what does our Keith need to learn during his time on this earth? Well, let us say Keith Chegwin needs to be a tad less independent, an independence he learnt as a young actor. Standing up to his fears back then, forced him to get a grip on the material world and fight to overcome his challenges. He knows all about standing alone, and facing his inner issues, with the resulting heroic conquest of his addiction to alcohol. This is a truly interesting man, so much more than meets the eye. But there is a secret about Keith Chegwin, one that he will have realised not so long ago. This man is blessed. Mr. Jupiter, the planet of Luck and Bounty took a fancy to him when he came kicking and screaming into the world and said, this is a guy who deserves success! So good old Mr. Jupiter gifted him with a kind soul, with a creative personality and with a sincere need to contribute to this world. All our Keith Chegwin has to do now is watch over his sometimes emotionally restless bent, and when he is tired a tendency to be rather sad. But let us say his main mission is to reconnect to that beautiful child actor he was long ago, and realise how far he has come! Go for it Keith, you have happy years ahead!
