Hollywood fame. Tinsel Town glitz.
With the foundation behind the Mecca of the movie business being based in such non-realistic energies as hear say, rumor, and empty promises, the majority of Hollywood’s best known couples tend to have the shortest of shelf lives with most not being in any way memorable together as a romantic team.
Intriguingly, the couple from Hollywood’s “Golden Age” that’s still respected and admired in the present day just as much as when they were at the height of their romantic prime were both born beneath the most non-Tinsel Town like astrological element of Earth. Known for its ethic of hard work, grounded practicality and non-diva like behavior, both the great “film noir” actress Lauren Bacall was born beneath the middle of the Earth signs, Virgo, and the love of her life, one of the most popular actors of all time, Humphrey Bogart was born beneath the last of the Earth signs, Capricorn.

The union between the King and Queen of France, Louis XVI and his wife, Marie Antoinette sets a memorable standard on how NOT to behave within a partnership be it via a marriage or a monarchy. For not only did the relationship between the 18th century rulers not survive due to both parties repeating negative behavior cycles inherent within their Virgo Scorpio union, their cyclical blunders were the cause behind neither of the two royals surviving at all.
The King and Queen’s failure to trust each other along with their inability to communicate openly and honestly between themselves are the key factors which make their royal partnership one of the most tragic (and gruesome) examples of its kind in all of Western History.

There are many in my generation who right through to the present day are still quite unsettled by the death of Michael Jackson. For those of us who grew up when MTV first emerged during those long ago days when that channel actually played videos, Michael Jackson’s persona, image, and artistry was constant. The King of Pop was such an integral part of the early 80’s and MTV, that many of us who were around back then assumed Mr. Jackson would be just as consistently present today as he was in 1983.
Thus even in the current here and now it still takes reinforced effort to remind myself the man left this world in 2009 at the age of 50.
