The birthday girl for October 25 is Minnie Pearl.
I was sort of surprised to discover that Minnie Pearl is a Scorpio. I went through a few other “character” comedians in my head to see if could make a parallel between their characters and their zodiac signs. In a few cases, I could. Dame Edna, for instance, has that over-the-top glitz that I often associate with Aquarius. Pee-wee Herman wears Glen plaid which is something that I associate with Virgo. But nothing about Minnie Pearl reminds me of her Scorpio sun sign.
RuPaul, who can be considered to be a comedian with all the one-liners he delivers, is a Scorpio, too. Yet his costume makes me believe that he’s a Scorpio. I don’t even know where to start with Minnie Pearl!
The birthday boy for October 17 is Eminem.
I don’t really get a Libra vibe from Eminem. He does, however, have an Aquarius moon. In combination, the two factors support a rather contrived public persona. Of course, he has had his greatest success recording as a persona named “Slim Shady.” When he’s performing more autobiographical material he seems quite unauthentic to me. In fact, he’s been to court several times to defend the passive/aggressive insults he includes in his tracks.
Many Libra natives talk a big game, but they just won’t say what they mean to your face. I get the feeling that many of Eminem’s legal battles have to do with his inability to deal with his issues in an upfront manner. That’s just not the way that most Librans operate.
The birthday boy for August 27 is Daryl Dragon.
I hadn’t bothered to look up the “Captain’s” sign before. I’m not really sure what to make of it. The only other person in show business I recall who wears captain hats is Carol Channing, and she’s an Aquarius.
This is something I’m going to need to look into before I write my next book.
The birthday boy for August 10 is Justin Theroux.
I don’t know much about Theroux, but I do know that he’s been Jennifer Aniston’s boyfriend for quite some time. As far as sun-sign relationships go, I really like the Leo/Aquarius combo. Leos typically thrive on being adored by their fans and Aquarians often work hard to create a climate where they are accepted by the masses. Together they form a supercouple that can soak up the admiration while giving enough back to remain relevant in the public eye. They bring out the best in each other.
There are a lot of other factors to consider when evaluating the validity of a relationship, but sun-sign compatibility does play a role. In this case, it could play the most important role. I’m going to go out on a limb and predict that these two are in it for the long haul.
The birthday girl for May 29 is Mel B.
My favorite Spice Girls were the two Mels. Mel C is a Capricorn, like me. Mel B is a Gemini. I usually get along with Geminis because I applaud their ability to embrace their awfulness. On the other hand, I don’t always gel with individuals born under the other three signs represented by the remaining Spice Girls: Aries, Leo and Aquarius.
Posh Spice aka Victoria Beckham bugged the hell out of me as a Spice Girl, but I do believe that she’s a tremendously talented fashion designer. She actually bugs me a lot less than most Aries natives do. Ginger Spice drove me crazy with her big ego, as almost all Leo natives do. I found her to be very entertaining, but when she left the group to go solo I could barely believe it because I thought that she was tied with Posh as the worst singer of the bunch. Baby Spice, the Aquarius, also rubbed me the wrong way because I’m sort of grossed-out by women who infantalize themselves. But taking a time-honored cliche and turning it into a non-threatening, mass-market caricature is something an Aquarius would do. Everything about the character of Baby Spice rang false with me. I often discuss how Jennifer Aniston’s public persona seems so contrived. Contriving a public persona is the Aquarius way, though. I shoudn’t be surprised that people liked Baby Spice when saw right through her schtick. I hated her guts.
Mel B, on the other hand, was a good singer, a good dancer and a good entertainer. I adored her on “Dancing with the Stars,” but once again she was paired with a Capricorn: professional dancer Maksim Chmerkovskiy. There’s really not a lot in common between these two signs, but in some ways they kind of bring out the worst in each other in a very entertaining way. Geminis aren’t afraid to reveal their bad side and Capricorns are thrilled to play along with someone who doesn’t always stand on decorum. Together, they’re sort of rotten, but in the most delightful way.
I don’t know if Mel B and Mel C actually got along as Spice Girls, but I can imagine that they would have enjoyed each other’s company in small, infrequent doses. I can also imagine them knowing that they had all the talent in the group but never actually saying it to the others. They would probably just smile slyly at each other and it would be understood. That’s sort of how these two signs work together. Still, they don’t really work together for very long. That’s just the way it goes.
The birthday boy for March 19 is Bruce Willis.
Astrologically, I believed that Bruce Willis and Demi Moore made a terrific couple. I was shocked when they broke up. I wasn’t shocked at all when Moore broke up with Ashton Kutcher because I forecasted bad things for the Scorpio/Aquarius pair. I won’t be surprised if Willis’ relationship with Emma Heming, a Gemini, ends soon. Squares are the toughest of all bad sun sign aspects to overcome. Relationships don’t live and die on sun-sign compatibility, but they don’t thrive because of these tense aspects, either.
I guess we’ll all see if I’m going to have to eat my words in the not-too-distant future.
The birthday girl for February 18 is Jillian Michaels.
I don’t know Michael’s birth time, so there’s about a 75% chance that she’s an Aquarius. I believe that she is because she seems to want to be the Oprah Winfrey of physical fitness. On “The Biggest Loser,” her training techniques included some intensive therapy; she spent as much time forcing the show’s participants to confront the psychological reasons for their weight problems as she did actually training them.
I wouldn’t expect the same approach from a Pisces native. No offense, but I suppose a Pisces trainer would spend a lot more time crying with the contestants and a lot less time working out.
