Born on December 2, 1981, in McComb, Mississippi, Britney Spears' zodiac sign is Sagittarius and she's an Aquarius Moon. It's widely believed that her birth time is 1:30 AM (though she hasn't confirmed that time), which would make her a Libra Rising.

Spears has a stellium in her chart, with four planets in Sagittarius including her Sun. Mercury, Neptune and Uranus are also in the freedom-loving Sagittarius zodiac sign. Her Moon sign is in the analytical and innovative zodiac sign of Aquarius. Spears has her Mercury zodiac sign in Sagittarius, too, which means that her mind is active. She thinks and acts true to who she is. Her public life shows that these facts of her natal chart are likely true.

The shape of Spears' birth chart is also significant. Her planet placements are organized in a bowl shape, which means the majority of her planets are located in one 180-degree portion of her chart across six signs. According to astrologer Marc Edmund Jones, "A person with a bowl-shaped chart pattern tends to be highly focused, self-contained and have strong core values. The individual will go in search of enterprises that are meaningful, fulfilling and personally relevant. They have the greatest benefit for themselves and others at heart."


Spears also has two special aspects in her chart, the T-Square and a Grand Trine.

A Grand Trine is made up of three signs in the same element that are 120 degrees apart. In Spears' case, she has a Grand Earth Trine made up of Venus in Capricorn, Chiron in Taurus and Mars in Virgo. These placements make her very practical, loyal and hard-working, typically willing to put their all into the things they want to achieve. 

Spears' T-Square, which occurs when planets in three different signs of the same modality form an opposition and a square aspect, is comprised of Venus in Capricorn, Pluto in Libra and North Node in Cancer. This cardinal T-Square is indicative of confidence and ambition, but the missing Aries zodiac sign reveals a hesitance to take action when needed.

They don't show their emotions and tend to be very practical with their feelings. They tend to be very independent and take pride in their independence. They care for others but don’t always show their softer side because they think others should also be as independent and strong as they are.
