Idris Elba was born on a moon cusp, a day during which the zodiac sign for the moon switched from Leo to Virgo. Since I do not have Idris Elba's birth time, I do not know which of both is correct. The following interpretation is, thus, not based on Idris Elba's star signs, but on the aspects the planets form with each other.
The sun sign Virgo is ruled by the Mercury in its full manifestation. Idris Elba's horoscope is dominated by Mercury and Virgo. That makes Idris Elba a pretty authentic Virgo.
Idris Elba is able to connect consecutive knowledge and to distinguish right from wrong. He communicates on all levels such as the language itself, facial expressions and gestures. What has been observed is compared, interpreted, classified and at the end transferred to other people as information. Idris Elba has the gift to learn quite well, always looking to extend his knowledge. He likes the movement and the change.
Idris Elba is affected by the power of analysis and differentiation. Thinking becomes a reliable tool which orders, processes and takes everything to pieces (in a positive way). Idris Elba is able to differentiate between the useful and the harmful. He may be technically adept and shows in his actions a practical, efficient and ingenious manner. On an emotional level, Idris Elba is cautious, self-disciplined and shows an extraordinary willingness to care for and help others.
Idris Elba's emotional nature is marked by generosity and optimism. Composed and confident he encounters life and expects just the best. The same is valid for his life philosophy. This stance is so inviting that he indeed attracts many good opportunities and friendly, supportive people in his life.
With his positive aura Idris Elba opens other people, provides them with the help for orientation and encouragement and they return gladly their thankfulness and offer him their opportunities. He triggers a positive spiral of real developments.
If Idris Elba is aware of his incredible energies and always can feel the thankfulness and joy a deep faith in the good cosmic order is created in which he is embedded. He lives with an open heart, and even that alone is happiness for him and others.
Idris Elba possesses an intuitive sense of the meaning of events and encounters. Even if he meets difficulties, he always sees the positive meaning because he has the needs to evolve and gain more knowledge about life without being too grim or hasty. Idris Elba grants himself the time until he has completely comprehended his truth emotionally. While he catnaps in the hammock, he could have the best insights. Idris Elba does it almost literally in his sleep.
Idris Elba possesses an enormous vitality and self-assertion and once he has eyed a goal, he goes or storms ahead without thinking too much, of course depending on his temper. At the slightest he puts the impulses arising directly into the action.
Will and action are made of one and provide Idris Elba with an enormous striking capacity. When he pursues a project coming from the core of his being and which excites him, he can only barely hold back his drive and creativity.
However, Idris Elba's impulsiveness and his egocentricity let him often rub up the wrong way, for example if he overruns other people in his eagerness and impatience. He is so convinced of himself and his actions that he only hardly notices other people's opinions.
Idris Elba's aggressive potential sits very close to the surface, and if he feels provoked or stopped, he instantly starts to shoot, unless other aspects of his nature keep these energies at bay. Then the shot backfires or better said is let loose inwardly and he directs his aggressive energies against himself.
If Idris Elba becomes angry, he should always exactly look with what he thinks he can prevail. In his impulsiveness, he takes a possible resistance beforehand and starts a game of shadowboxing. Perhaps he had strong disputes with his father in his childhood where he had the feeling his will could not prevail. Now Idris Elba can learn to assert his undertaking without fighting others.
Idris Elba possesses great attractiveness and a seductive charm coming from each move and gaze. He loves to play off the erotic energies, openly or hidden, depending on the nature and taste. Idris Elba knows how to stage himself and to play out his effect on other people.
The upcoming flirt is followed, however by the deepening - and the growing closeness and intimacy demand his readiness to lay open layer by layer of his personality without the fear to show weaknesses. The goal of his energy is deep devotion which demands complete bareness, especially with regards to emotions. The strategic hide and seek game ends at some point and if Idris Elba lets his heart talk absolute honesty is required.
Fear, jealousy, sadness, resistance and coldness, whatever appears in an intimate situation is worth of an actual consideration. Because all those feelings harbour basically a treasure; Idris Elba's love which is buried under suffered hurts yearns to express lively. With manipulative games of power, Idris Elba will not achieve his actual goal of unification. It is his longing for coalescence guiding him there and which will abolish the separation.
