Penelope Cruz

Hollywood star Penelope Cruz will turn 48 on April 28

Born in Madrid, Spain, Penelope has starred in films as varied as Vanilla Sky and Vicky Cristina Barcelona. She has worked often with director Pedro Almodovar, and their latest film, Parallel Mothers, was released recently. Penelope married fellow Spanish actor Javier Bardem in 2010 and they have two children.


Penelope’s first card pictures a beautiful woman controlling a fierce lion - yes this is the Strength card. It advises love and patience are better tactics to overcome obstacles than impatience and frustration. When Penelope shows her inner strength, the outer world will take note. And a role she has wanted for years - perhaps in a stand-out TV or film series, can be hers.

Three of Earth

Card two on my table is the Three of Earth. This is a symbol of solid success, and friends and family celebrations, linked to the number three, or contests or deals in three parts. Someone who shares Penelope’s initial can be the key to this process - and a bond of lifelong connection.

Ace of Air

Finally, I draw the Ace of Air, a lightning strike of imagination and invention, bringing an idea that can solve a worldwide problem. This card can also suggest early celebrity for a child, which will need careful handling.
