They have both built their businesses into empires. They are good at empire building. From horoscope perspective, they both belong to a water sign and were both born in the year of the Goat, a Chinese Zodiac sign that belongs to the fourth trine. If all other factors are not taken into consideration, people who belong to the four trine in Chinese Zodiac, especially people born in the year of the Goat, are most kind to others, most accommodating, and so can put up with the most, take up the most challenges, and carry out the longest fights. Belonging to a water sign helps business in ways that I have mentioned in other posts: avoiding confrontation, speedy execuation, etc. But why not a fire sign? Although people of both water signs and fire signs are passionate about their pursues, so much so that they would do anything to achieve their goals, people of fire signs are too much into self protection to have good business and work relationships with their business partners and workers. And building the right relationships with business partners and workers are critically important to business empire building.
I think building a business empire is different from fighting a battle or running a political campaign. Fighting battles or running political campaigns requires short term but fierce fights. And that is what people of second trine are better at. By the way, Martha Stewart may be as famous as Bill Gates and Steve Jobs, her business empire is nowhere near those of Bill Gates and Steve Jobs.
The odds of Natalie Portman winning the Oscar this year is the lowest if we go by horoscope because people who belong to the second trine in Chinese Zodiac have the least of luck this year. But she beat the odds and won the Oscar. This is proof that she was a very strong candidate and that she deserved the award the most.
I have found many people of fire signs, especially Sagittarius, who I do not like. But Bradley Manning is a Sagittarius who I do not have any negative feeling toward. After I read about him on Wikipedia, I do not find anything I do not like about him. I think he is just a person with some believe and acted according to what he believed in (which is “without information, you cannot make informed decisions as a public”). He might have made mistakes in things that he has done. But it was not because he is a Sagittarius. Rather it was because of what he believed in. If you hate him, it is because you do not share his believe, not because he is a Sagittarius.
Whenever we dislike someone, it is most likely because we do not like what he/she is pursuing. People of fire signs are dedicated to achieving their goals and would try to achieve their goals by all means with less regard to code of conduct. That is why we do not like them when we do not like what they are pursuing. This may be the real reason why I do not like many people of fire signs.
By the way, Daniel Ellsberg (Goat, Aries), the most famous whistle-blower in American history whose leaking of “The Pentagon Papers” brought the Vietnam War to an end, is also a fire sign with a Chinese Zodiac sign that belongs to the fourth trine, just like Bradley Manning (Rabbit, Sagittarius).
Other people in history and celebrities who also belong to a fire sign and the fourth trine include Hugh Thompson (Goat, Aries) and Robert De Niro (Goat, Leo). They are different from people of fire signs who belong to the first trine (and perhaps second trine as well) in Chinese Zodiac, such as Don Imus (Dragon, Leo), John Galliano (Rat, Sagittarius), and Peter King (Monkey, Aries), who are prejudiced against certain people (even though they do not want to admit it). I think this is because people of fourth trine (and perhaps those of third trine as well) have more feelings for others (just as they have more feelings for themselves as well), which makes them more kind and liberal, while people of first trine and second trine are more harsh, demanding, vain, conservative, and prejudiced.
Depends on who you ask. What he did to Samantha Geimer when she was 13 years old is what a lot of men of fire signs would do when they want to have sex. They just think of what they want and how to get it. If it is not for fear of being punished for it, they do not care if the other party wants it or not. That is how they live their lives. People of other signs may find it difficult to accept it. But should people be punished for having the wrong personality which they were born with?
By the way, being born in a year that belongs to the second trine makes Roman Polanski more aggressive. That explains both the reason why he did things against others’ wills and the reason why he is successful in his career.
PS: I don’t think that it is a coincidence that many of those who have been accused of sexual harassment (Bill Clinton, Arnold Schwarzenegger) belong to fire signs.
They did not just die in similar ways. They both belong to an earth sign and they were both born in the year of the Dog.
People who belong to the third trine like to take the lead, and tend to be constantly trying something new. That is why they are more likely to succeed in entertainment.
People of earth signs are independent. So the arts they create are more original. Also, they love to pursue, and are very hard working. That is why they can make it big in entertainment.
As revealed in this article on The Improper’s “Suicide Model Ruslana Korshunova’s Three Loves” and this article on The New York Daily News “Mom, pals question model’s tragic death after view from Korshunova’s balcony“, Ruslana Korshunova was actually heart broken over her relationship with her one time fling in Moscow instead. The fact that she jumped right after a conversation with him shows her action was spurred by her emotion at the moment, not by a deliberate consideration. That explains why she did not leave a suicide note.
People may find it difficult to understand why she would have jumped just for one moment of despair, no matter how deep it was. But I have seen in my real life how emotional Cancers like Ruslana Korshunova can be, and what kind of extreme actions their emotions can spur, especially for those whose Chinese Zodiac signs belong to the fourth trine, like Ruslana Korshunova.
There is another young woman in the news who was born in the same year and same month, and has the same sun sign as Ruslana Korshunova. Their birthdays are only a few days apart. She has been indicted for the murder of her roommate. In both cases, their negative feelings grew over a period of time and bursted at one point and triggered extreme actions that most people, especially those who know them, can not understand.
I think as people with Chinese Zodiac signs that belong to the fourth trine, they have a very strong desire to be in control but are also willing to put up with too much before they explode. And as Cancers, they are very emotional. These are the two factors that contribute to their unthinkable acts. By the way, this has strengthened my believe that O.J. Simpson could have committed the crime he was accused of.
They are both Snakes who are close to be Horses and they are both Aquarius. Snakes are very much into money. Horses are very much into serving the society. Aquarius are good in figuring out how to make money. Aquarius are also into humanitarian causes. All of these explain why they are very wealthy and enjoy very high social status at the same time. People of other signs would have to try much harder to get to where they are.
They are both Cancers born in the year of the Tiger, or put it another way, Tigers born in the month of Cancer. They are emotional because they are Cancers. And they are adventurous because they are Tigers. That may explain why they are both most talked about in the tabloids.
