December 1 is Carol Alt’s birthday.
Sagittarians are trailblazers. Carol Alt lived up to her cosmic destiny, setting the template as to what a bombshell model should be. She was one of the first models to recognize that despite her success in the business of high fashion, there were greener pastures on the horizon. She may not have been the first woman to appear on the “Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue,” but along with Cheryl Tiegs and Christie Brinkley, she was one of the first to parlay her success in fashion into something more broad-based.
Her natal chart reveals an entrepreneurial spirit. If her birth time on astrotheme.com is correct, she has Venus, Jupiter and Saturn all in Capricorn in the second house. She has the sun in Sagittarius in the first house, indicating a personality that is bold and adventurous. She also has an interesting configuration with Mercury in Scorpio in the twelfth house opposite the moon in Taurus in the sixth. Alt has promoted herself as a raw-food advocate, writing two books on the subject. The sixth/twelfth house axis often will contain something of note in the chart of someone who possesses alternative notions of health and wellness. It reveals a connection between the mind and body that may be at odds with conventional wisdom, but it is a very personal approach to the subject that appears to work for the person who embraces it. And who am I to dismiss Carol Alt’s diet plan when it obviously works for her? She looks great for her age.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got a two-pound bag of carrots in the fridge that I should probably eat for lunch. It’s either that or pizza. Hmm . . .
