The birthday girl for October 31 is Willow Smith.
I’ve noticed that a few Scorpio child-stars that I’ve profiled have not carried their enthusiasm for over-the-top fashion choices into adulthood. That makes sense to me. As a Capricorn, I’m always concerned that astrologers are describing my sign as the “conservative” one when most of the Cancer and Scorpio adults I know are far more conservative than me.
I suppose it really comes down to defensiveness. Both Cancer and Scorpio are defensive signs by nature. As someone like Willow Smith grows older, she’ll probably also grow weary of defending her fashion choices. As a result, she’ll likely adopt a look that invites less scrutiny so that she doesn’t have to bother defending herself. Scorpios aren’t exactly known for being forthright just for the sake of being forthright; they would rather just shut their mouths and keep you wondering what they’re thinking.
The birthday girl for October 16 is Rachel Reilly.
I’m a huge “Big Brother” fan. I watch the American version of the show religiously and I even auditioned for the upcoming Canadian version. I’d like to see an astrologer like me in the house, although I doubt that I’d reveal my profession to the other houseguests. Anyway — back to Rachel. I was surprised to learn that she has a Libra sun, but I wasn’t surprised at all when I looked up her chart and discovered that she has a Cancer moon.
I don’t believe that a Cancer moon makes an individual particularly sensitive. It does make them unusually defensive and rather manipulative. In combination with a passive/aggressive Libra sun and heavy planetary influences from both Capricorn and Scorpio, Reilly is a manipulative power player. It’s a good chart for someone who plays a dirty game.
I’d be very interested to see where Reilly’s rising sign fits into all of this. Rachel, if you’re reading this, drop me a line! I need to know what time you were born.
The birthday girl for July 23 is Stephanie Seymour.
Earlier this month I composed a couple of posts where I mentioned Stephanie Seymour alongside Gisele Bündchen while discussing Cancer supermodels. I corrected the posts soon afterward, realizing that Seymour is a Leo, not a Cancer.
Just out of curiousity, I punched up her chart only to realize that she’s got a Cancer moon, Mercury and Mars. Her sun and Venus are both in Leo. I don’t have a birthtime for the model, so I can’t confirm her rising sign. Nevertheless, I don’t feel so stupid for getting her sign wrong now that I know that she has such strong Cancer influences in her chart.
Somewhere on this blog is a post about Gisele where I confess that I thought that she was a Leo until I looked up her chart. I guess women with big hair AND big boobs just give me a combined Leo/Cancer vibe. Who can fault me for that?
Well, I’m finally ready to move onto another sign, only a week after the sun moved into Leo. I’ll catch up soon!
The birthday boy for July 22 is Alex Trebek.
Trebek is a Cancer, although he was born on the day when the sun moved into Leo. I can see how he suits the profile for one sign more than the other. After all, what do we really know about Alex Trebek even though he’s been on TV every day for the past twenty-some years?
Cancer natives are typically guarded. I suppose we’d know much more about Trebek’s personal life if he was a Leo because he would probably be inviting us into his business all the time while pretending that he really wanted his privacy — Leos can be such publicity whores!
I’ll take “Being a Celebrity is Difficult!” for $400, Alex . . .
The birthday boy for July 21 is Justin Bartha.
I never really thought about this before, but Justin Bartha has been in four very high-profile movies: both “National Treasure” films and both “Hangover” films. In each film he plays sort of a second-banana to a character played by a Capricorn actor (Nicholas Cage and Bradley Cooper). For that reason, I’m going to forecast that his upcoming TV series, “The New Normal,” is doomed to fail. I think he needs to paired with an actor born under the opposing zodiac sign in order to have the right sort of chemistry.
I’m just going on history here . . .
The birthday girl for July 19 is Vikki Carr.
I made a joke on my other blog a couple of years ago that was perceived by the fans of Vikki Carr as an unforgivable insult. I had to endure the wrath of several fans who were determined to lecture me in regards to the relevance of Vikki Carr to popular culture. They were as venomous as they were humorless. I made a joke about my own obliviousness and they reacted as if I had slapped their mother across the face.
Well, Vikki Carr is a Cancer. Maybe she does inspire those sort of maternal feelings from her devotees. Nevertheless, the entire episode was just weird, and I’m sure that Ms. Carr wouldn’t have given it a moment of thought. My little joke would have bounced right off of her Cancer crab shell.
The birthday boy for July 18 is Nelson Mandela.
While I’ve talked about a lot of Cancerian qualities on this blog, I haven’t really discussed the innate sense of self-sacrifice that defines the sign.
Imagine a sandpiper protecting her nest by pretending that her wing is broken, or Mildred Pierce confessing to a crime that she didn’t commit in order to protect her daughter. Or imagine a man spending more than a quarter-century in prison to make a political point so that his people could be free.
The innate maternal instinct associated with the sign of Cancer is well known. The great length a Cancer native will go to in order to protect her “children” is unparalleled. It’s something I need to discuss in greater length. Maybe next year . . .
