What Makes a Good Survivor?

leave a comment »


Last week’s tribal council on “Survivor: Heroes Vs. Villains” was the most exciting thing I’ve seen on the show since Eric was voted off the island in “Survivor: Fans Vs. Favorites.”  The common denominator in both situations was contestant Parvati Shallow.  Parvati is proving to be the best contestant who has ever played the game of “Survivor.”  No one has pulled off bigger, more complex moves with such aplomb.  I was interested to look at her natal chart just to see what makes her such a good player.

Of course, there are numerous elements to take into consideration, but I was most interested in the sun/moon dynamic.  Parvati is a Virgo with moon in Scorpio.  Another Virgo, Chris Daugherty, won the game in a similar fashion to Parvati: Overstaying his welcome episode after episode.

Virgos are known for their analytical nature.  I suppose that the primary strength that this pair of players has brought to the show has been their ability to analyze the situation they’re in until shortly before tribal council takes place.  They seem to lurk in the shadows, gathering information and weighing their options until the eleventh hour.  Then they make their moves.  Neither of these players has won the game by broadcasting their motives.

Parvati holds her cards even closer to her chest than Chris did.  With her moon in Scorpio, she’s been able to put some emotional distance between herself and her friends in the game.  It’s a deadly combination of sun and moon sign.  Watching her fish for information from Amanda Kimmel in last week’s pivotal episode was like a master class in manipulation.

I don’t know if Parvati is going to win now that she’s had to make such a major move with nine players still in the game, but I do know that she’s not going to go down without a fight.  A clever, cold, calculated fight, but a fight, nonetheless.
