Resurrection is a common theme amongst Scorpio individuals. They can bounce back from the most adverse circumstances. Perhaps that’s why “Days of Our Lives” actress, today’s birthday girl Deidre Hall, has been able to get away playing the most absurd character on daytime television. Wikipedia seems to agree:
“Throughout the course of her existence on the program, she has experienced what some consider to be the most outrageous circumstances of any character in soap opera history. These would include possession by the devil; a plummet from a 30-story-window (which she survived); being used as a surrogate for genetically engineered babies, Rex and Cassie, during a four year coma; being mind-controlled to believe she was a serial killer; and becoming pregnant late in life and suffering a miscarriage, which caused her to have hysterical amnesia. She has also been kidnapped numerous times over the past 30 years. She is a doctor, wife, mother, twin and grandmother.”
Most recently, Hall returned to the show after being axed in a round of salary cuts. Personally, as well as professionally, she seems to rise from the ashes long before she’s forgotten. In fact, she’s probably the most-pervasive face on American television (who else can compete with a thirty-five-year stint in the same role?). Now that’s a Scorpio for you!
I’ve blogged about Ivanka Trump and her relationship with her family before, but I haven’t yet discussed the fashion sense of today’s birthday girl.
Trump has a cool-as-a-cucumber demeanor that suits the signature style of her sign perfectly. In fact, if I was rewriting my book today, I’d probably hold her up as a paradigm of modern Scorpio style. She dresses like a sexy, high-society femme fatale, yet the most-alluring thing about her is her sense of restraint. You’ll never see her let it all hang out, and if you did, she’d probably have you eliminated before you could sell your story to the tabloids.
Today’s birthday girl is Kate Jackson.
I don’t believe that I’ve ever looked up the signs of the three original actresses who appeared on “Charlie’s Angels” in the seventies. It’s always easier to discuss their relationships in retrospect. Still, it makes perfect sense that an Aquarius like Farrah Fawcett would bolt from the series after a single season when paired up with two Scorpios: Jaclyn Smith and Kate Jackson.
What makes even more sense is that two Cancer women, Cheryl Ladd and Shelley Hack, would round out the cast for most of the show’s five-season run. Between these watery actresses, they appeared in thirteen of a possible fifteen seasons of the show (five seasons with three actresses appearing in each). The only other actress to appear on the show besides Fawcett who wasn’t born under a water sign was Tanya Roberts, a Libra who also only lasted a single season as an Angel.
It just goes to show you that these elemental relationships provide a good starting place for long-lasting success. As a Capricorn, I almost always find myself doing my best work with Virgo or Taurus collaborators. So I suppose that means that I should be cast in the next “Charlie’s Angels” remake with Blake Lively and Jessica Alba, right? Right?
Okay, I’m the crappiest blogger ever!
It seems as if I’ve been playing catch-up with this blog ever since I began writing it. Still, I’ve never been so far behind in my posting as I’ve been lately. For that reason, I’ve just got to forget the last couple of weeks and start fresh. All apologies to the Librans who were ripped off because I didn’t get around to writing about them. You’ll just have to rely upon your old copies of Jackie Stallone’s “Starpower” if you’re still craving some genuine astrological insight.
The birthday boy for October 11 is Daryl Hall.
I’m always taking potshots at Aries natives for not playing well with others. However, they do play quite well with Libra individuals. Just a moment ago when I discovered that Daryl Hall is a Libra, I said to myself “I bet John Oates is an Aries!” Lo and behold, I was correct.
See, astrology really does work!
The birthday boy for October 10 is Russell Hantz.
I find it very intriguing that one of the most famous “villains” ever to play the game of “Survivor” has never won the show. To me, it just goes to show you that Libra natives make terrible villains. Aries contestants, on the other hand, fare a little better in the role of the villain. Take Richard Hatch, for example. He won the show being a jerk who was hated by almost everyone.
After playing the game three times and making it to the finale twice without actually winning, Hantz still maintains that he was one of the greatest players in the history of the show. Perhaps if he would have shown a few more typically Libran qualities such as diplomacy and class, he would have won. But he didn’t. Too bad for him.
The birthday boy for October 9 is John Lennon.
Lennon’s chart is just what you would expect from popular music’s most memorable pacifist. He has a Libra sun in the sixth house of work and service, and an Aquarius moon in the eleventh house of mass-media and social relationships. His Aries rising sign could have mitigated the role of “peace” in his life if any planets inhabited the sign. As it is, the sign is empty, and his first house contains a conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn in placid Taurus, not Aries. Angry Mars also sits in Libra — a very mellow position for the red planet.
There’s not much in Lennon’s chart that makes me wonder if astrology works. It’s one of those rare instances where everything seems to fit together exactly as it should.
There comes a time in every woman’s life when she should probably look at the length of her hair to determine if her style is appropriate for her age. Long hair tends to weigh down a face that’s already being ravaged by both time and gravity.
Nevertheless, today’s birthday girl, Emily Procter, looks pretty hot for forty-four. Like Gwyneth Paltrow (her fellow Libra), Procter carries her long, straight, Libran hairstyle quite well for her age. As far as I’m concerned, she should be in no hurry to chop it off.
The birthday boy for October 7 is Simon Cowell.
Knowing that the sign of Libra is symbolized by the scales and often pictured as the Roman diety Justitia, it’s no surprise that Judge Judy is a Libra. Of course, the other richest judge on TV, Simon Cowell, shares her zodiac sign.
Libra natives do like to pass judgement on others. Getting paid for it is the icing on the cake.
The birthday boy for October 6 is Les Moonves.
When I realized that Moonves’ birthday is on October 6, I immediately thought of my friend Suzanne who is also born on October 6. Moonves’ Capricorn wife, Julie Chen, shares my birthday. My friend Suzanne and I have been accused of behaving like an old, married couple who know each other better than they know themselves. I’ve never known anyone who could finish my sentences like she does, and vice versa.
According to numerology, there should be a connection between people born on the same day of the month. The number 6 relates to the planet Venus, beauty and the finer things in life, which both me and my friend Suzanne seem to prize. Nevertheless, our natal sun positions are almost square to one another. We probably shouldn’t get along as well as we do. But there are plenty of other chart factors that can overrule the aspects of the natal sun in a synastry chart. Moonves and Chen seem to be made for one another, so who am I to tell them that the stars aren’t completely on their side?
