The birthday girl for March 24 is Star Jones.
Jones is one of two former hosts that abandoned the daytime TV show “The View” because they couldn’t get along with the other co-hosts. The other is Jones’ fellow Aries, Rosie O’Donnell.
I make a lot of jokes on this blog about how poorly I get along with many Aries individuals. I have a Capricorn sun, a Cancer moon and a Libra ascendant. That combination of cardinality makes me the antithesis to the typical Aries native. Not surprisingly, the head honchos at “The View” are a Libra and a Cancer: respectively, Barbara Walters and Bill Geddie.
People born under cardinal signs don’t go out of their way to dislike each other, although it can be difficult for them to find fault in themselves when things go wrong. They implicitly believe that they’re following the right path even when they’re on the wrong path. The problem with Aries natives is that they can rarely be corrected. They take offense to the notion that there might be another way besides their own. Both Jones and O’Donnell left “The View” because of their refusal to compromise when two other individuals born under equally strong-willed cardinal signs wouldn’t let them have their own way.
It’s a lesson to all of you born when the sun was in Aries. You can’t win every battle, especially when you’re outnumbered. So shut up and do your job before you no longer have a job.
