Lifestyle column: the Zodiac and Entertainment

The Zodiac Entertainment: with astrology, it is possible to decipher our behaviour or to get a glimpse of the future. This is a theory which cannot be systematically tested. On the other hand, one may wish to follow an easier path, which puts into practice the principles listed in astrology textbooks. In a way, this is precisely the type of practical exercises that we suggest in this Lifestyle column.

We recommend that you follow our advice with both a light and observing mind. Beyond entertainment, the aim is to understand how each of us behaves in various fields; thus, we can better define and fathom, by deduction, how we have developed our natal predispositions. In addition, why wouldn't we be able to guess the talent(s) which we could harness in the future, according to our astrological profile.

The following information is given for signs in their purest form. Depending on the case, it is advisable that you check your planetary dominant or the sign of your Ascendant, the position, quality and aspects of the significators of the area involved, and if applicable, the position of the planets associated with it. For instance, for family affairs, examine the 4th House and its ruler, as well the Moon; for romance, examine the 5th House and its ruler, as well as Venus, etc.

The large number of books we have read, and more particularly, the experience we have drawn from the study of thousands of charts, urge us to be cautious. However, we thought that it may be interesting to provide a few concrete indications, which will turn out to be accurate, quite often.

Entertainment for Aries, Aries rising, Mars dominant, or strong 1st House

With you, in the area of entertainments, like in many others, it is all or nothing. You adore or you loathe, but you are never half-hearted. To avoid unpleasant surprises, you should rather opt for shows with a lot of action. Since you are avant-garde, you may appreciate this year the ballet featuring Snow White in a revised and updated version. The costumes are designed by Gaultier, the choreography is modern, but romanticism is preserved. You are also fond of musicals because, once again, you are certain that you will not be bored. Try invigorating shows such as The Lion King or Mamma Mia, which will put in a good mood and which have triumphed during many years everywhere they were playing. Or why not go to the "Cirque d'hiver", in the best tradition of its kind, with acrobats, elephants and clowns trying to outdo each other in elegance and imagination just to blow you away? Lastly, you may enjoy a one-man show, because it matches your individualistic temperament, such as for instance the humorist Gad Elmaleh in Paris.

Entertainment for Taurus, Taurus rising, Venus dominant, or strong 2nd House

With your usually strong aesthetic inclinations, you are fond of artistic entertainments. You look forward to it a long time in advance, and you put the invitation card or the poster in full view. You carefully get ready for it because you are eager to look elegant. If you are given the possibility, you prefer music. You may worship the opera, for listening to the voice of mythical singers moves you to tears. Especially Maria Callas, an accomplished Greek tragedienne, even in real life, too hungry and too passionate, who remains a model. This year, bear in mind that La Traviata and Rigoletto are programmed in Vienna. A city meant for you in this period of the year, with its famous New Year Concert, its Emperor's ball and its Sachertorte... However, owing to your positive and cheerful temperament, you also enjoy operettas. In France, Offenbach is fashionable. The Grand Duchess of Gerolstein is scheduled in Paris, and The Beautiful Helen, in Avignon. In a word, the choice is yours!

Quietly, you keep abreast of all the shows scheduled for the upcoming season. Because you check your various sources, and you constantly talk to everybody, you are informed of everything! This year, you may rush to watch An American in Paris, the Parisian blockbuster of the moment, which revives Gershwin's very catching songs. For anyone having the fidgets, it is ideal. In London, it is a classic such as The Phantom of the Opera that you should see to savour West End's ambiance. Or you could bet on contemporary performances with Stomp. You may feel like running to New York to scour Broadway in order not to miss a single modern ballet by the famous Alvin Aley Company. Lastly, since you are also fond of burlesque, the repeat of the play Santa Claus is a bastard remains a must in Paris.

Entertainment for Cancer, Cancer rising, the Moon dominant, or strong 4th House

Since you are still young at heart, shows offer you golden pretexts for letting yourself be carried away by poetry, dreams, and magic. This year, do not hesitate to visit again the world of Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, an author who is the archetype of your sign, since the play The Little Prince is a big success. When you hear "Please, draw me a sheep", you are unable to resist. Keep in mind that your purpose is to spend a warm or touching moment, and eliminate trash programmes. In the dark, you can quietly let emotions overwhelm you, and you can even shed a tear, as no one will notice it. But you, you will feel very comfortable in a place where the audience is in unison with you. You may appreciate even better any performance based on fairy tale themes which are both nostalgic and tender. Ballets such as The Sleeping Beauty or The Nutcracker are wonderful options for a perfect year-end celebration. This is also what Christmas is all about.

Leo, Leo rising, the Sun dominant, or strong 5th House

Entertainment for Leo, Leo rising, the Sun dominant, or strong 5th House

It is well-known that you find the performing arts world fascinating. To begin with, you love the splendour of the architecture of the most famous theatres in the world. Great names such as La Fenice in Venice, La Scala in Milan or Le Théâtre du Châtelet in Paris conjure up realms of glamour which never go out of fashion. To be in harmony with the magnificence of the venue, you carefully prepare yourself as if you were going on stage. Lace dress, dark suit with a bow tie. You want to be dressed up to the nines for these outings which recall an often openly expressed vocation. At school, you were always the first one who volunteered to act in plays, and since then, you have perhaps started an artistic career. As a keen "client", you are inclined to favour great classics. You always enjoy Racine and Molière. You also appreciate musicals, because Broadway delights you! This year, you may be happy to choose The Bat, which is already the absolute must of the holiday season in Paris, or West Side Story, a film-concert. You may also be glad to rediscover the eighties with Thriller, which brings Michael Jackson back to life.

Virgo, Virgo rising, Mercury dominant, or strong 6th House

Entertainment for Virgo, Virgo rising, Mercury dominant, or strong 6th House

When you see the avalanche of publicity or of calls, more or less disguised for year-end outings, you immediately turn on your critical mind. It is out the question to let yourself be duped by the first advertisement you come across. Without telling anyone, with your curiosity aroused, and a highlighter pen in your hand, you gladly establish your personal short list. Your intellectual nature often favours programmes in which reflection prevails over action. Les Misérables is among the safe bets, since you are interested in social depictions, and you do not particularly look for glamour. Black humour, such as in The Play That Goes Wrong in London, or C'est Noël tant pis by Pierre Notte gives food for thought and yet, is relaxing. Lastly, with your Mercurian background, you are fond of stand-up comedies. See Titoff, whose offbeat view of our world's madness sometimes concurs with yours. To celebrate the 15th anniversary of his career, he has concocted a bright programme in which he mixes his best old sketches with new ones. In brief, even though routine activities suit you very well, bend your rules in a pleasant manner, and indulge in these year-end outings.

Libra, Libra rising, Venus dominant, or strong 7th House

Entertainment for Libra, Libra rising, Venus dominant, or strong 7th House

Hush... do not tell anyone, but regardless of your age and your gender, comedians make you dream and speed up your heart rate as if you were a silly young person. You are delighted by romantic plays in which beautiful dialogues compete with elegant costumes, or with the tormented faces of the actors, embellished by the lighting. It is even truer with the opera. You are stirred from beginning to end when divas almost always end up dying of love, or kill their beloved partner. In a word, one has grasped it, you are easy to please, provided you are not taken for a ride. Besides, since you secretly worship Sarah Bernhardt or Laurence Olivier, it is most likely that you will also appreciate today great names. See A Delicate Balance with Glenn Close or The Elephant Man with Bradley Cooper in New York. Take advantage of your sojourn in the city that never sleeps, and rush to applaud Woody Allen who is performing with his jazz band at the Carlyle. Difficult to get a better programme...

Scorpio, Scorpio rising, Pluto dominant, or strong 8th House

Entertainment for Scorpio, Scorpio rising, Pluto dominant, or strong 8th House

It cannot be repeated often enough, but your taste for provocation applies to numerous areas. As far as entertainment is concerned, you want to be more than surprised. You need thrills, belly aches, and palpitations. The decor is unimportant. The only thing which matters is exhilaration. Therefore, you should choose unsettling plays dealing with the most taboo themes: violence, sexuality, power, or even psychoanalysis. Shows involving magic also suit your interest in mysteries and strategies. Indeed, you are really anxious to know how the trick of the woman cut into two parts works! Anything which sends shivers down your spine, and which seems more or less dangerous is meant for you, beginning with fire-eaters... This year, you can enjoy the black humour of the play C'est Noël tant pis, or excite your senses by going to the Crazy Horse on New Year's Eve.

Sagittarius, Sagittarius rising, Jupiter dominant, or strong 9th House

Entertainment for Sagittarius, Sagittarius rising, Jupiter dominant, or strong 9th House

What if entertainment is also a means to travel without leaving one's armchair? You are the first person who believes that it is true, since you manage to escape mentally before anything else! Of course, you remain interested in exotic stories: Aladdin or The Wizard of Oz spreads its well-tried charms in musicals currently playing in Broadway or in Paris. Moreover, you may like the show based on the life of Evita Peron, which will take you to Latin America. In the field of music also you have a keen nose which enables you to spot foreign artists performing in your neighbourhood, especially jazz musicians. But since you are a bon viveur, and sometimes a socialite, you cannot resist the desire to see (once again) Le Dîner de cons, to rediscover Ancient Rome with the (comic) fresco Ben Hur, or if you are in New York, to choose Miss Saigon in order to journey twice as much.

Capricorn, Capricorn rising, Saturn dominant, or strong 10th House

Entertainment for Capricorn, Capricorn rising, Saturn dominant, or strong 10th House

By avoiding the bustle of popular entertainments, you are making the right decision. The most serious persons will not miss the Christmas concerts programmed throughout the Advent, including Christmas mass – for instance at the Sacré-Coeur Basilica – where singings fully deserve the public's attention. At least, the tradition is respected, and a not too commercial spirit prevails over there. This year, you may enjoy The Little Match Girl, a musical adapted from Andersen's tale. Even though the story is modified, you will identify with the moving character of an orphan fighting loneliness on Christmas Eve. Your tastes are as serious when you select a play. Exit the King, featuring Michel Bouquet, deals with existential issues which are dear to you although they are not joyful. To remain in a world suiting the winter principles of your sign, ice shows will cheer you up. For instance, Disney is celebrating 100 years of Magic with a big tour.

Aquarius, Aquarius rising, Uranus dominant, or strong 11th House

Entertainment for Aquarius, Aquarius rising, Uranus dominant, or strong 11th House

There is no more need to look for an adept of experimental creations, since we found you. In those days, you were among the first persons who rushed to listen to The Monologues of the Vagina, a feminist play having sociological subjects at the core its script. Now, you may enjoy Theatrical Readings at the Rodin Museum, in Paris, in which a comedian reads a great author, sometimes in front of the sculpture of "The Thinker", if the weather is fine. Even better, Exhibit B, the installation-performance by Bret Bailey who addresses the issue of racism and stirs polemic. The controversy is spreading everywhere the show is on. It causes cancellations which of course make you want to see it and form your opinion. You may also dream of running to attend Cabaret in Broadway and get immersed again in the ambiance of the Studio 54 of New York, with characters battling with pivotal times of History and forcing you to ask yourself questions... in a captivating and peculiar tone.

Pisces, Pisces rising, Neptune dominant, or strong 12th House

Entertainment for Pisces, Pisces rising, Neptune dominant, or strong 12th House

This is the world in which you feel in your element. Because you have the soul of an artist, you are looking for performances which stimulate your senses and your imagination. As aestheticism plays an important role, you are particularly sensitive to the staging, to costumes, to the lighting, as well as to the decor. Music is essential also. It is established that it is a universal means of sharing emotions. What you appreciate most as a member of the audience is to enjoy those moments in public, or even in a dense crowd. You belong to the type of persons who have a lump in their throat when lighters are turned on in the dark, or when your neighbours applaud wildly. Therefore, plays, ballets, concerts, circus, etc. are for you, and you are willing to taste everything! This season, try for instance Kinship, featuring deeply moving Isabelle Adjani, in Paris. You may also like a classic, in Broadway or on tour, such as Cats or West Side Story. And why not admire the Cirque du Soleil's artists, whose talent is always enthralling?

You will find on Astrotheme thousands of natal charts of celebrities who have the Sun in Pisces, Pisces rising, or Neptune dominant.
