Here is a brief look at a celebrity’s Human Design chart using just a few of many aspects and layers of a chart. Our purpose here is to give you just a partial glimpse, through Human Design, into this person’s energy dynamics.
Jared Leto – Uncommonly Talented 1/3 Manifesting Generator
Birth: December 26, 1971 at 12:36pm in Bossier City, Louisiana
Many thanks to my loyal reader Maya Oliver who suggested Jared for this Celebrity Chart article and who provided a wonderfully detailed description of him, his background, and his diverse accomplishments. I’ve used most of what she sent me in this Background section!
Here is a direct quote from Maya:
From music and film, to new business ventures and philanthropy, I am continually blown away by the energy, drive and dedication Leto puts into everything he does. His work leaves me inspired and motivated to believe, follow my dreams, work hard and fight the good fight.
I think his story and energy would be really interesting, and even inspiring, to many people and your readers would really enjoy learning about someone who is such a creative powerhouse, using their energy and ability to create such meaningful impacts in people’s lives.
Jared Leto is an incredible musician, actor, film maker, entrepreneur, innovator, philanthropist and an all-around fascinating, highly-focused and deeply-driven human being who is making long-lasting and meaningful impacts on the world.
- He came from humble beginnings in Louisiana and was raised by a single-mother with his brother, Shannon. His birth father divorced his mother, remarried then committed suicide when Leto was eight years old.
- With his mother and brother, Leto moved frequently, living in different states, a hippie commune and even in Haiti. Heavily influenced by the arts and music, he enrolled at the University of Arts in Philadelphia and later transferred to the School of Visual Arts in New York City to study film making.
- In 1992, he moved to Los Angeles to pursue music and took acting jobs on the side to pay the bills. His acting career took off, earning roles in both television (My So Called Life) and film (Prefontaine, Girl, Interrupted, Fight Club, American Psycho, Requiem for a Dream).
- In 1998, he and his brother Shannon formed their rock band Thirty Seconds to Mars, releasing their first of four albums in 2002.
- Thirty Seconds to Mars has released four albums to date: the self-titled debut in 2002, A Beautiful Lie (2005), This Is War (2009) and most recently Love, Lust, Faith and Dreams (2013).
- In August 2008, Thirty Seconds to Mars found themselves at the center of a $30 million lawsuit, filed against the band by their record company EMI (which at the time was the parent company of Virgin Records) for breach of contract when the band attempted to change labels. It was a very public and stressful event, which the band chronicled in their documentary Artifact (directed by Leto) that examined the state of the modern music industry and shed light on the unbalanced relationships between artists and record companies that can easily leave artists flat broke.
- They have headlined multiple world tours with sold out shows across the globe and on December 11, 2011 at a concert in New York City, they set a Guinness World Record for “Longest Concert Tour by a Rock Band” with 309 shows in nearly 60 countries on 6 continents in just over two years. (Maya was lucky enough to attend this concert in person and was blown away by Leto‘s stage presence, his connection with the fans and the genuine sense of community that the band collectively created among everyone. As a Reflector, she was acutely aware that energy created in that space was simply incredible. She says, “It was a powerful and moving blend of inspiration, motivation, camaraderie, love, gratitude and sheer happiness to be a part of such a special event in one of the greatest cities in the world, led by highly creative and really conscious people. Irode that incredible, positive energy wave for days and days.”)
- Leto has directed the majority of the band’s music videos (many of which are actually short films) under the pseudonym Bartholomew Cubbins, his favorite Dr. Seuss character.
In addition to being a musician, actor and director, Leto has an innovative business sense that earned him a spot on Fast Company’s “Most Creative People” List, and he has launched numerous companies including:
- The Hive, a social media management and digital marketing company
- Adventures in Wonderland, a full service company that manages exclusive services for concerts, festivals and events. (30 Seconds to Mars fans can purchase “Adventures in Wonderland” tickets to concerts that include VIP seating, Meet and Greets with the band, etc.
- VyRT, a live video streaming service that enables artists to sell “virtual tickets” to concerts, allowing fans to watch live from a computer or mobile device. (30 Seconds to Mars has offered VyRT tickets to several of their concerts.)
- Leto recently returned to acting and earned wide praise in 2014 for his Oscar and Golden Globe winning roll as Rayon, a drug addicted transgender woman with AIDS in Dallas Buyers Club. His acceptance speech at the Academy Awards was one of the most beautiful and touching speeches of the evening, thanking those who have helped him along the way and offering support and encouragement to anyone who has ever been treated poorly because of who they are. It was a true reflection of his character.
- A genuine philanthropist and human rights advocate, Leto has supported numerous causes and charitable organizations from The Nature Conservancy to Habitat for Humanity. He raised money to support the campaign against California Proposition 8 in 2009 and released a book of photographs that he took during a visit to Haiti to raise money for the 2010 earthquake survivors.
Leto’s Human Design chart shows us where all of his uncommon talent, energy, compassion, and leadership come from. It’s all in his chart!
