[ Padma Lakshmi] 

I don’t know where to start as this is a multi-talented soul. 

Born September 1, 1970, Padma Parvati Lakshmi Vaidynathan, Madras (Now Chennai), India. No known birthtime. She will turn 48 this year. 

She is an Author, Actress, model, television host and executive producer.  

Her Sun is in Virgo in Western but Leo in Vedic. Her Moon, if born after 4AM would be in Virgo but most likely with her performance skills and appeal to the public it's in Leo. The rising sign I am guessing is either Cancer, Taurus or Libra.  

She obviously enjoys cooking having a cooking reality TV show. Her debut cookbook “Easy Exotic” won her “Best first Book” award in 1999 from Gourmet World Cookbook Awards.  

In her Western chart she has Sun, Moon, Pluto, Mercury and South Node in Virgo. 5 planets in the Earth element spells practicality. This is a woman who is very picky about order in her life. She would be a perfectionist. 

Her Moon and Mars in Leo would give her the playful side which is so needed with all of the Virgo energies. Leo loves the performing arts and many celebrities have Leo energies. Leo also loves children and Padma has a daughter named Krishna.  

She has had health issues and is an advocate for woman’s health. Virgo is known to get involved in health personally and professionally. Pluto in Virgo deals with health issues of the reproductive system and she has had surgery in that area.  

Her beauty as a model comes from Venus being in Libra. Venus in Libra with Moon in Leo will get you the attentions you need to become famous in the performing arts as well as vocations dealing with beauty such as a model and jewelry or in the beautician industry.  

She is intelligent and knows how to speak 4 languages, English, Tamil, Hindi and Italian. This comes easy to her with part of fortune in Sagittarius.  

She does believe in marriage with Venus in Libra conjunct Jupiter in the early degrees of Scorpio. Neptune in Scorpio can lead to an active fantasy mind. A have not read her book “Love Loss and what we ate” and other books by her, but her short marriage of 3 years (2003 to 2007) to Salman Rushdie reflects some of the lessons learned from that marriage and much more.  

I currently cannot find any information that she is planning on getting married again as I write this article in 2018. Pluto in Scorpio is very private and Virgo is shy but she is forced through her vocational success to deal with the public attentions. 

She would have different types of relationships that are different than the norm due to Uranus being in Libra. She will experiment in this lifetime.  

Spiritual with North Node in Pisces and wants to help others through her own success.  

Padma means “Lotus Flower” and Lakshmi is the personified Goddess of beauty and wealth in the Hindu Religion. She has a net worth of 20 million and that may have changed to a much larger amount since the posting of an earlier bio.  

Padma Lakshmi is intelligent, strong, perfectionist, loves children and being a mother, loves cooking, talented actress and model, loves her independence, an author and T.V. Chef.  

Padma Lakshmi is in the “Celebrity Spotlight”.
