I’m not into astrology (probably because Aquarians question these things ) but some good friends are, including the fan-friend who sent me the following “chart” from a professional astrologer. Now, apparently this astrologer was only given David’s birthdate info, his first name and initial (and had no idea it was the incomparable Archulator being charted):
David A is an unsung hero, an undiscovered genius…and an unknown quantity. It is because David is such an unknown quantity that his heroism goes unsung and his genius undiscovered. Some people will blow their own trumpets from the highest hill even when those trumpets are battered and badly out of tune. David is rather the opposite. No matter how bright the light inside him shines, he will always find a bushel big enough to hide it under. David wants to be thought of as stable, steady and solid. He tries his best to do what the world expects of him, he wants to be a trooper – a loyal, reliable, down-to-earth kind of character. In the attempt to give this impression David strives to be modest, restrained and realistic. He almost succeeds. Through diligent effort David manages to persuade himself and the rest of the watching world that he is a known quantity. At best he will allow himself to be known for his talent in one particular area or for his courage with regard to one particular topic. The trouble is David is a Capricorn and Capricorns, despite all that some astrologers say, are always unknown quantities.
Deep down inside David yearns to be wild and crazy, footloose and fancy-free. He wants to break the rules, question convention and court controversy. Only one thing stops him – a little voice in the back of his head that says “Excuse me, who do you think you are? That’s not the kind of activity that David A can get away with.” If you want to be a true friend to David A you must encourage him to ignore that voice. He will love you for it and he won’t need much encouraging. David A was born to be brilliant. He was destined to be daring. One day he will realize this and then…the world had better look out.
So what do you guys think?
P.S. Speaking of footloose… shall we vote for our favourite handstand?
