The birthday girl for October 31 is Willow Smith.
I’ve noticed that a few Scorpio child-stars that I’ve profiled have not carried their enthusiasm for over-the-top fashion choices into adulthood. That makes sense to me. As a Capricorn, I’m always concerned that astrologers are describing my sign as the “conservative” one when most of the Cancer and Scorpio adults I know are far more conservative than me.
I suppose it really comes down to defensiveness. Both Cancer and Scorpio are defensive signs by nature. As someone like Willow Smith grows older, she’ll probably also grow weary of defending her fashion choices. As a result, she’ll likely adopt a look that invites less scrutiny so that she doesn’t have to bother defending herself. Scorpios aren’t exactly known for being forthright just for the sake of being forthright; they would rather just shut their mouths and keep you wondering what they’re thinking.
The birthday girl for October 16 is Rachel Reilly.
I’m a huge “Big Brother” fan. I watch the American version of the show religiously and I even auditioned for the upcoming Canadian version. I’d like to see an astrologer like me in the house, although I doubt that I’d reveal my profession to the other houseguests. Anyway — back to Rachel. I was surprised to learn that she has a Libra sun, but I wasn’t surprised at all when I looked up her chart and discovered that she has a Cancer moon.
I don’t believe that a Cancer moon makes an individual particularly sensitive. It does make them unusually defensive and rather manipulative. In combination with a passive/aggressive Libra sun and heavy planetary influences from both Capricorn and Scorpio, Reilly is a manipulative power player. It’s a good chart for someone who plays a dirty game.
I’d be very interested to see where Reilly’s rising sign fits into all of this. Rachel, if you’re reading this, drop me a line! I need to know what time you were born.
The birthday boy for October 9 is Brandon Routh.
Only a handful of actors have played the role of Superman onscreen. The first was a Libra native named Kirk Alyn. He was followed by George Reeves, a Capricorn. Then came Christopher Reeve, another Libra. Routh was the third Libra to play the role. The other two actors to play the role on television were Dean Cain, a Leo, and Tom Welling, a Taurus. A new Superman film will be released in 2013 with Henry Cavill, another Taurus, in the lead role.
I don’t know what any of that means, but I do find it interesting that three Libras have played the part, all with relative success. Libra is the “justice” sign, so it makes sense that a Libra native would fit into the role. With Cavill’s upcoming debut being the only other “repeat performance,” it will interesting to see if he brings something new to the “Man of Steel.” or if he just continues on the same path forged by Tom Welling’s “boy-next-door” portrayal of the superhero.
That reminds me that while I’ve taken a casual glance at the signs of the actors who have played James Bond, I’ve never compared the charts of the actors who have played Batman. It’s something I should look into!
Today’s birthday girl is Melissa Sue Anderson.
I’ve never compared the signs of the cast of “Little House on the Prairie” before, but I was laughing out loud when I did. Anderson, the pretty, passive Ingalls sister is a Libra. Melissa Gilbert, the plucky, earthy girl is a Taurus. And Alison Arngrim, the one who played the bad-to-the-bone Nellie Oleson is a Capricorn, just like me!
See, astrology really does work!
The birthday girl for August 30 is Lisa Ling.
Of all the former stars of “The View,” I can imagine that Ling was the one who was the most annoyed by her fellow co-hosts. Being an orderly, self-disciplined Virgo, it must have been difficult to be constantly interrupted by everyone else on the panel. But at least Ling had a Capricorn moderating the festivites: Meredith Viera. It’s the Capricorn who tells the others to shut up and behave themselves when they get out of hand, like Julie Chen on “The Talk.”
Since the departure of Viera, there has been far less “moderation” on the show. I suspect that a Virgo like Lisa Ling would find the current cast entirely intolerable. It’s probably a good thing that she moved on when she did.
The birthday girl for July 25 is Heather Marks.
Heather Marks is in the middle of a career renaissance. After breaking into the fashion business a few years ago, her career waned and it seemed as if she wasn’t going to live up to her potential. Recently, however, the model has seen herself snapping up high-profile campaigns that are normally reserved for modeling’s A-list.
Comebacks like that are not uncommon in modeling, but I sort of expect a Leo to never go away. In astrology, the idea of a comeback suits the sign of Scorpio, or maybe Capricorn. Still, you can never count a Leo out. Now that Marks is back at the top, I don’t expect her to go away anytime soon. In fact, with her girl-next-door-meets-high-fashion looks, she’s probably going to break into acting any day now.
The birthday boy for July 21 is Justin Bartha.
I never really thought about this before, but Justin Bartha has been in four very high-profile movies: both “National Treasure” films and both “Hangover” films. In each film he plays sort of a second-banana to a character played by a Capricorn actor (Nicholas Cage and Bradley Cooper). For that reason, I’m going to forecast that his upcoming TV series, “The New Normal,” is doomed to fail. I think he needs to paired with an actor born under the opposing zodiac sign in order to have the right sort of chemistry.
I’m just going on history here . . .
The birthday girl for July 8 is Eve Myles.
I was a little late to the “Torchwood” party. By the time I started watching it, Eve Myles’ character had turned into Ripley from “Aliens.” Still, it wasn’t until after I had watched the show that I discovered the actress has a Cancer sun sign.
Her character, Gwen Cooper, was a textbook Cancer native: tough on the outside, soft on the inside and as maternal as they come. I really don’t know what the character was like before she had children, but I don’t suspect that she was much different than the Gwen Cooper of “Miracle Day.” I could be wrong, though. Motherhood does invoke some very primal responses. In fact, I believe that most astrologers miss that primal side of Cancer when they discuss the sign. A Cancer native can be all business — even moreso than a businesslike Capricorn native – when she’s protecting her family. She might be more sensitive than any other girl in the zodiac, but her ability to detach when circumstances call for strength and stoicism is unparalleled.
The birthday boy for June 30 is Mike Tyson.
The more I learn about Mike Tyson, the more I realize how he epitomizes the qualities of his zodiac sign. He’s tough on the outside and ready to defend himself, yet soft on the inside and as sensitive as they come.
I’ve never been a fan of boxing so I don’t really remember much about the former champion besides his domination of the sport and the ear-biting incident. But I am a huge fan of reality TV and entertainment news shows where I’ve seen him crying and talking about his feelings again and again and again.
It makes me want to punch him! That’s the Capricorn in me talking, though . . .
The birthday girl for June 27 is Khloé Kardashian.
Of the three Kardashian sisters, I find Khloé to be the most-tolerable. That probably has more to do with my chart than with hers. I’m a Capricorn with a Cancer moon and a Libra rising. Kourtney is an Aries, and I’ve made no attempt on this blog to gloss over how unlike an Aries I am. Kim is a Libra, and although I get along well with most Libra natives, I find their passive/aggressive nature to be at odds with my businesslike Capricorn approach; if I don’t like something I’m more likely to tell you that I don’t like than to punish you in an obstructionist manner.
I like Khloé’s frankness. I also like her relationship with her brother, Rob. Rob is a Pisces, so it makes sense that he gets along with his sister who shares a water sign. I’d probably get along with Rob, too, though. Still, I can’t bring myself to watch their television shows for more than a few minutes. Maybe I just resent the fact that there’s not a Capricorn to be found on any of their shows.
