May 5 is Adele’s birthday.
A couple of days ago, I came across a very funny video on Twitter that made fun of the clichés that define the zodiac signs. Of course, the comments section was full of people admonishing the person who posted the video for perpetuating stereotypes, including the cliché that Taurus natives are fat.
I am also guilty about promoting that stereotype. But, to be fair, I don’t just tell Taurus individuals that they are fat. I typically describe them as “self-indulgent.” They like booze, drugs, cigarettes, and lots and lots of sex. What’s more, many of them enjoy plastic surgery and the way it conceals and/or erases the effects of their indulgences.
I don’t know if Adele has had anything done yet, but I do know that she has lost a bunch of weight recently. I hope that her reason for slimming down had to do with health more than anything else, but I’m not quite sure. I had a look at her natal chart, and with a Gemini Venus in the twelfth house opposing her Sagittarius moon in the sixth, I imagine that her motives for losing weight are mixed. This is an aspect that can endow an individual with tremendous emotional insecurity and the tendency to seek out “coping mechanisms.” For someone with a Taurus sun, all of the indulgences I already mentioned can be problematic.
Strong, personalized oppositions between planets in Gemini and Sagittarius can also result in people taking “the easy way out.” I hope for Adele’s sake that she is on a path that will allow her to have a long and healthy life, free from the problems that plague many individuals who achieve success at such an early age. She has a chart that makes me believe that there might be more going on behind the scenes than we know about.
