George Clooney

When you deal with sun-sign astrology, you often get accused of perpetuating clichés.  But that’s what astrology is about.  After observing commonly-shared characteristics for thousands of years, astrologers have assigned particular characteristics to particular signs.  We talk in clichés — that’s what we do.

One cliché that I regularly use to describe Taurus is “fat.”  While not all Taureans are fat, there is hedonistic streak to this sign that can manifest itself in self-indulgent behavior.  I usually relate that back to fashion, because it’s easy to make a link between self-indulgence and bad plastic surgery or label-whoring.  I tend to avoid talking about Taurean overeating because it often leads to a minefield of controversy.  People are offended when you tell them how much they should weigh — especially fat people.

Now today’s birthday boy, George Clooney, isn’t fat.  Oddly enough, he shares his birthday with his fellow auteur Orson Welles.  Welles weighed nearly four-hundred pounds at one time in his life.  I’ve always expected Clooney to pork out, too, but he’s surprised me by staying fit and trim, even as he approaches his fiftieth birthday.

And that illustrates another Taurean cliché: Tenacity.  This is a sign known for the perseverance of its natives.  If staying thin is important to George Clooney, he’s going to stay thin.  Or maybe he’ll be the next Orson Welles.  Only time will tell . . .

  1. Clooney has a bad back. He’s had spinal surgery. Excess weight would really limit him and he’s likely been told not to gain weight. There have been times where he’s been chunky, like the weight he gained for one movie role, so he knows what it is like. I believe he made a comment about how hard it was to get the weight off. And when a Taurus decides not to do something, they have tremendous willpower.
