Ann Landers and Dear Abby

Abby & Ann

Pauline Phillips and Esther Lederer were better known as advice columnists Abigail Van Buren and Ann Landers.  The identical twins are today’s birthday girls.  But are they typical representatives of their zodiac sign?

I wish I knew a little more about the way they dressed, because all I associate with them is that 70s helmet hair.  There are three things I constantly warn Cancer women to avoid: Wearing too much black, exposing too much cleavage and using too much hairspray.  But when the photo above was taken, their hairstyles were likely de rigueur.  How can I fault them for that?

I guess the only thing I can say is that a Cancer woman is the right woman to write an advice column.  For a sign associated with  emotional sensitivity and nostalgia, they can be quite hard-boiled and unsentimental in their delivery of practical advice.  They are the zodiac’s matriarchs, and in that position it’s second-nature to let everyone else know what’s best for them.  I’d also take advice from a Capricorn, or maybe a Libra.  As for the rest of you, forget it.
