Oh my god! I finally caught up!
Today’s birthday girl is Lacey Schwimmer.
I recently saw Schwimmer in person as part of “Dancing with the Stars Live” in Las Vegas. On TV, she appears to be a little larger than many of the other female professional dancers. However, when she’s standing a few feet away from you onstage, she’s got the sexiest body of any of them.
Cancer women wear a little jiggle better than most. It’s a sign that is associated with feminity and the female figure — especially the boobs! Although she was far smaller than I expected her to be, I was still amazed by her curves. I couldn’t believe how great this girl looked!
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.
The birthday girl for June 26 is Aubrey Plaza.
Plaza is known for her deadpan delivery. Many astrologers describe Cancer natives as being warm and maternal. I find that there are far more Cancer individuals who are, at first glance, cold and defensive. Being defensive is a hallmark of this zodiac sign. For that reason, the walls put up by Plaza’s hard-nosed character on “Parks and Recreation” seem to be perfectly in-character with her sign.
Is it good acting or is typecasting? It’s probably a little of both.
The birthday girl for June 25 is Lauren Bush Lauren.
Bush is the grandaughter of George H.W. Bush, the niece of George W. Bush and the daughter-in-law of Ralph Lauren. It’s no surprise that a woman with those connections would know how to dress in public. But one thing doesn’t necessarily lead to another . . .
As a conservative Cancer, Bush pulls no punches with her sense of style. Nevertheless, she doesn’t bore the world to tears, either. She prefers tasteful, classic clothing that is well-fitted and feminine without being overtly flirtatious. One classic Cancer mistake that she occasionally makes, though, is allowing her hair to be styled too severely. She has a thick head of hair that can sometimes look a little like a helmet.
Helmet head is awfully common amongst Cancer natives. Lauren Bush Lauren normally avoids the problem, but it becomes an issue when she parts her hair in the middle. It makes her hair sit so stiffly on her head that it looks like a heavy wig.
Just the other day I profiled Selma Blair. Even with helmet-like coifs, the actress avoids helmet head by incorporating elements like fringed bangs into her hairstyles. I’d like to see a layer or two cut into Lauren Bush Lauren’s hair. Even though it looks healthy, it just seems so lifeless to me.
The birthday girl for June 24 is Solange Knowles.
Knowles has recently become a darling of the fashion press. In fact, the photo I posted above is from an article in the “Telegraph” that recently awarded Knowles the distinction “June’s most fashionable.”
Now a woman can’t be all that fashionable without fashion; Knowles is lucky that designers are so eager to lend her clothes. But at the moment I’m not getting a personal-style vibe from the performer. I am starting to see that Knowles recognizes where she previously went over-the-top with her wardrobe. She’s reigned in her style in a manner that suits the somewhat classic style of her Cancer sun sign. I expect a little more growth now that she’s got her head around what works for her. I also expect to see Knowles in more outfits that combine the pieces of different designers. At the moment she has a bit of an off-the-rack appearance. She looks great, but she’s going to look even better when she stops being a model and starts being a muse.
The birthday girl for June 23 is Selma Blair.
I’m a big fan of Selma Blair personal style. Not only do I believe that she’s got an innate “coolness” about her, but I also believe that she represents the signature style of her zodiac sign better than almost any other Cancer actress in Hollywood.
Cancer women can be a little too hard so they need to lighten up their look with things like sheer fabrics, lighter colors and cosmetics that have pearly sheen. Too often, they either dress like funeral directors, pilgrims or school marms. Conversely, there’s another kind of Cancer woman who dresses like she’s headed to an interview at Hooters. I’m sure I’ll discuss that look a lot over the next few weeks.
But I digress! Selma Blair’s mostly black and white wardrobe suits her well. She usually shows a little skin to soften the appearance of all-black looks, and she seems to throw a little white into the mix for good measure. She’s dark, but not too dark. She’s serious, but not too serious. She’s a Cancer, but she’s not a crab. It’s a cool vibe that is both feminine and alluring.
Can you tell you I like her?
The birthday girl for June 22 is Meryl Streep.
In theory, Cancer natives should be quite defensive and reserved. They are a watery, emotional sign, yet they are able to hide their vulnerabality behind a proverbial “shell.” The best Cancer actors are able to access their emotions so well that when they let the floodgates open, the rest of us are brought to tears. It’s absolutely genuine.
As the most-celebrated actress in the history of cinema, Streep embodies her zodiac sign like no one else in show business. What’s surprising about the performer is that she is so pleasant and unassuming in candid interviews. It’s easy for a Cancer native like Streep to show her best side when she’s worshipped by the public, though. If she had something to defend, it might be a different story.
