Veteran actor Christopher Lee was a legend long before Peter Jackson and George Lucas cast him in two of his great roles, Saruman the White and separatist leader Count Dooku. Lee has always been responsive to his double Gemini urge to follow the path less troden. His One Destiny Path encourages his pioneer spirit even moreso. Gemini rules the respiration, the bi-polar activity of the physical universe breathing in and out, heart beating in and out, and so is able to track just about anything that is not running on all four burners. They are known for finding unusual, novel, somewhat bohemian and out of the way places, absolutely delightful, operating on their own terms. This could be said of the circus-like atmosphere created in James Bond spy thriller, Man With the Golden Gun where the notorious hit man Scaramanga corners 007 in a hall of mirrors built especially for such an occasion.
Gemini governs both hands, so it appropriate Count Dooku would fight his final battle with galliant Jedi Knights Obi-Wan Kenobe and Anakin Skywalker on the Separatist flagship, the Invisible Hand. The Invisible Hand cantina was a cantina in Gnawer's Roost on Coruscant. It was decorated with old Separatist recruitment posters, war memorabilia, and pieces of alloy that were supposedly parts of the Invisible Hand that fell on the ground during it's destruction in the Battle of Coruscant. The White Hand in The Lord of the Rings is the symbol Tolkien chose for the mutant Uruk-hai, created by Saruman the White, a member of the Istari. The white hand was featured mainly on banners and flags of the Army of Saruman. The hand is used as an intimidating symbol on the helmets and faces of Uruk-Hai.

Jupiter is deposited in the Ascendant, in Libra, sign that governs matters that pertain to the search for balance. Lee has always been known as an entertainer in a battle between conformity and independence. In order to avoid competitive disadvantage in the movie world Lee may have gone along to get along. As late in his career as the film version of The Lord of the Rings was brought to the screen, he had some question about Peter Jackson trimming down the death of Saruman, relegating the scene to deleted footage. The white wizard was again his part to play in The Hobbit, the second Peter Jackson trilogy based on author J.R.R. Tolkien. The double Gemini factor in his personality gave a strong desire to master seven languages perhaps to communicate well, and to expand his already wide circle of associates. Christopher Lee has a good grasp of higher and lower mind skill sets therefore, and always had the range to select a script that was of interest. His thought processes ran to the abstract and impersonal, and away from empathic methods of taking in new knowledge.
Naturally this factor guarantees the charismatic presence required to work with, and sometime tend to the management of, independent and eccentric colleagues and groups. This gift is useful for producers who must work with creative, but unreliable people. A visionary prophet on some level, he walks a step ahead of the mainstream, but remains in touch with his audience. The sign Libra imparts love of the law, justice and the search for the roots of any conflict. Some with the intense love of good form, dignity, and integrity enter the legal profession and are very influential in areas that involve mediation.

Dooku spent nearly seventy years as a Jedi, but a disastrous battle on Galidraan shook his faith in the Order and the Galactic Republic. He fell under the influence of Supreme Chancellor Palpatine of Naboo, and left the Jedi Order. After learning that Palpatine was secretly the Sith Lord Darth Sidious, Dooku turned to the dark side and became a Dark Lord of the Sith himself, replacing Darth Maul as Sidious's second apprentice. His new master bestowed upon him the Sith title of Darth Tyranus.
