It is typical of an air sign like Troy Davis to insist on telling the truth and to care more about principles than self-interests. People in power often belong to water signs and fire signs, who are afraid of having to admit to having made mistakes and do not like to be challenged. When someone tells them that they were wrong as Troy Davis did, they want him/her to show his/her submissiveness, to stop telling them that they were wrong, to assume all the responsibilities and not to have them take any responsibilities.
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.
It may be good to be independent. But it is not good to be arrogant. I found many people of earth signs to be very independent. But some of them make people feel that they are arrogant as well. I am not sure why and when they cross the line. But many of them do cross the line.
Of the most famous earth signs, I have not seen John McCain crossing the line. I think Carrie Prejean may have crossed the line sometimes.
I have met several young women of earth signs who have crossed the line. It is a small annoyance in life. People should not always follow the crowd or be submissive. But that does not mean that they can disrespect other people.
If you go by horoscope alone, you would think that Harvey Milk and Dan White should get along with each other very well and that it is likely that Dan White would have respect for Harvey Milk. However, as we all know it was the opposite. So here is another case that shows how people’s ideologies decide what they would do in their lives much more than their personalities.
Another thing this case reveals is that a lot of time, people who belong to the same trine in Chinese Zodiac and even the same element in Western Zodiac can be the biggest enemies of each other. Because they belong to the same trine in Chinese Zodiac, they fight against each other with the same amount of energy, which makes the fight fierce. And because they belong to the same element in Western Zodiac, they hate each other based on the same logic, which makes the hate intense. What makes them hate each other is what they believe in, which has nothing to do with their personalities, and so has nothing to do with their horoscope compatibility.
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.
I have always had the impression that people of fire signs are more into self-protection and less into altruism, while people of air signs are more into altruism and less into self-protection. But Hugh Thompson and William Calley seemed to have proven the opposite in the My Lai Massacre. Did it happen because William Calley considered all villagers, regardless of their age and gender, as the enemies, while Hugh Thompson considered the villagers as friends? In fact, people of fire signs (and water signs) care a lot for people who they consider as their friends. How much of altruism a person has depends on who are considered as friends by that person. People of air signs tend to consider more people as their friends than people of fire signs. But in the My Lai Massacre, William Calley did not consider the villagers as his friends while Hugh Thompson did.
Also, people of air signs are not supposed to be the kind of people who would just follow orders. They tend to be quite independent. So I am not sure if William Calley was just following orders. But people of air signs are supposed to tell the truth as they know it. So William Calley could have told the truth as he knew it when he made the claim that he was just following orders. The truth is probably that he thought he was ordered to kill all the villagers and he himself also thought that all the villagers should be killed.
This brings me to another question. Why did William Calley think that all the villagers should be killed? I think people of air signs like William Calley killed because they thought of their victims as some kind of criminals and wanted justice against them. Another example of people of an air sign committing serial killings is the Green River Killer Gary Ridgway.
It is rumored that Lyndon Johnson ordered the JFK assassination. But I find it hard to believe from the analysis of his and JFK’s astrological signs. It is not impossible that things can happen against horoscope predictions. But I still would like to point out that as someone born in the year of the Monkey, a sign that belongs to the first trine, it is not likely that Lyndon Johnson would want to have his way so badly that he wanted to kill JFK. People of the first trine are not like people of the second and the third trine. They are more passive compared to people of the second and the third trine.
From Western astrological point of view, it is not likely that Lyndon Johnson, a Virgo (an earth sign), would despise or hate JFK, a Gemini (an air sign), so much.
By the way, Charles Nicoletti also belonged to the first trine and might have been the one who killed Marilyn Monroe. However, I think he killed her not because he disliked her but because he took the order from someone else. People of the first trine are more likely to follow others than to take the lead. The fact that he might dislike her only made it more easy for him to take the order to kill her.
Charles Nicoletti is a Dragon, a sign of the first trine. Marilyn Monroe is a Tiger, a sign of the third trine. So they are the opposite in Chinese horoscope. Charles Nicoletti is a Sagittarius, a fire sign. Marilyn Monroe is a Gemini, an air sign. So they are the opposite in Western horoscope as well. So Charles Nicoletti is someone who was more likely to have disliked Marilyn Monroe. Although as someone of a sign that belong to the first trine, it is not likely that he took the initiative to kill her, his dislike of her might have made it easy for him to take an order from someone else to kill her.
Marilyn Monroe was killed in the month of Leo (a fire sign) – the worst time for someone of an air sign, and the best time for someone of a fire sign. So Charles Nicoletti as someone of a fire sign was most likely to have succeeded in killing Marilyn Monroe at that time.
By the way, there are other historical figures who belonged to air signs that died in a month that belongs to a fire sign: JFK, FDR, Abraham Lincoln, Mozart, John Lennon. Ronald Reagan’s assassination attempt also happened in a month that belongs to a fire sign.
He is a Virgo born in the year of the Tiger. In other words, he belongs to an earth sign and the third trine, exactly like Michael Jackson (Dog, Virgo). People who belong to an earth sign and the third trine are the most independent and rebellious. They are the least likely to show respect for authority.
This reminds me of why Michael Jackson did not accept an invitation by Obama to his inauguration earlier this year.
Other people in history who belong to an earth sign and the third trine: Karl Marx (Tiger, Taurus), Ho Chi Minh (Tiger, Taurus), Harvey Milk (Horse, Taurus), Mother Teresa (Dog, Virgo). What do they have in common? They led a movement and they fought for the weak, which reminds me of Jesus. Based on what we know about Jesus, I guess he also belonged to an earth sign and the third trine. And since he was born in the winter, it is most likely that he was a Capricorn born in year of the Tiger (the very end of 7 BC or the very beginning of 6 BC).
Living political figure Lyndon LaRouche (Dog, Virgo) and many public servants and politicians such as Eric Holder (Tiger, Capricorn), David Paterson (Horse, Taurus), Chris Christie (Tiger, Virgo), Byron Dorgan (Horse, Taurus), Richard Shelby (Dog, Taurus), and Harold Ford (Dog, Taurus) also belong to an earth sign and the third trine. But I am not sure about their legacy.
Three famous living persons who belong to an earth sign and the third trine who have had great impact in modern American society are Michael Moore (Horse, Taurus), Oliver Stone (Dog, Virgo), Tim Russert (Tiger, Taurus). Jerry Seinfeld (Horse, Taurus) is also very famous. But I am not sure if he is influential.
Three other well known living persons who belong to an earth sign and the third trine have had significant impact on the US economy: Robert Rubin (Tiger, Virgo), Warren Buffett (Horse, Virgo), and Bernie Madoff (Tiger, Taurus).
There are well known people who belong to an earth sign and the third trine whose legacy I am not sure about: Dan White (Dog, Virgo) and Rush Limbaugh (Tiger, Capricorn).
I think for those who belong to an earth sign and the third trine that are in politics, there is one word that applies to most of them: “controversial”. There are two other words that apply to some of them: “revolutionary”, and “ideology-driven”.
