Being a Christian by belief....Astrology is not in my view of the universe..

.....BUT...just for fun.....

I looked up some of my favorite dancers to see if we may get along if we were together...

I am a Cancer...a water sign...


Gillian Murphy...she's an Aries...fire sign...Water with Fire...Opposite ends of the zodiac....not doable unless the Cancer grows a backbone. Rats!...she's my first love as far as ballerinas go....

Darcy Bussell....Tarus...Earth sign.....Earth and Water....That makes a good match.. :wink:

Aurelie Dupont..Capricorn...Earth sign...Earth and Water...but we're born 90 degress from each other..a difficult match..again RATS....


Anyone else care to play????

( Com'on people..lighten up a little!)

The number of great male dancers who are Pisces, starting with Nijinsky and Nureyev, is astounding. I went through the Oxford Dictionary of Ballet once when I was laid up with flu and counted about 30 of principal level or above. That should keep you busy! (Pisces rules the feet and ankles.)

Suzanne Farrell is a Leo and I am an Aries -- both fire signs. Is that good?

Sounds like a potentially combustible relationship, Farrell Fan, but if I remember correctly, it can work.

What a fun topic, iczerman. As Alexandra says, a good parlor game. :smilie_mondieu: Pisces rules the feet and blood circulation, I think it is, but Aquarius rules ankles and legs (Balanchine was an Aquarius).

Allegra Kent is a Leo and so am I.
This is quite good for my ego! :smilie_mondieu:

If you're really interested in such things...On the internet, I once saw a complete astrological chart drawn up for a dancer, but have no idea if it predicted great things or not. I am inclined to think so, though, so it would look more accurate after-the-fact. Perhaps there are other examples too?

Personally, I've always been glad Margot Fonteyn and I shared a birthday. And later I found out David Hallberg does too. :-)

Doesn't it sometomes make you feel terrible when one watches a dancer who shares one's age(or even exact birthday) and think to yourself, "Why can't I do that???"

It doesn't matter in your case, you're just very fond of each other for far more important reasons (even if they coincide, I'd subsume the astrological considerations to the others.). I have, though, thought of Suzanne's astrological sign fairly often, because despite various other aspects of her persona, she has a natural glamour, and that is always associated with Leo--there's a natural gloss. It's something I've seemed to think they have even when they try to cover it up. You can see it even in the childhood picture, I forget where to find it. It's not something I usually think about much, except I sometimes think certain signs have specific 'styles' to them--as I imagine Virgos are also often elegant in a more conservative way, but I don't go very far with this, and don't tend to mention my own sign, as people do 'go to town' with these things.

I try to look at it this way. I don't look as graceful, but I don't have the bunions, hip injuries, or knee ailments either....

No Geminis?

Traditional Gemini traits

Adaptable and versatile
Communicative and witty
Intellectual and eloquent
Youthful and lively

On the dark side....
Nervous and tense
Superficial and inconsistent
Cunning and inquisitive

I've been trying to figure out whether this is grab-bag of qualities is incompatible with the special demands of ballet training and career.

No, I never think such things. I can do plenty of things they can't :dunno: , and some they wish they could too, I bet.
