Saturday night TV has been dominated by reality TV for some time and tonight is no exception with new “talent” show The Voice on BBC up against Britain’s Got Talent on ITV. Being an astrologer, I am always curious to know what star signs people are who are involved in these programmes.
Last year I wrote a blog post entitled X Factor And The Emotional Factor in which it stated that X Factor judges Cheryl Cole, Nicole Scherzinger and Tulisa Contostavlos were all Cancerians, one of the water signs. This fits as X Factor is renowned as much for its sob stories, emotion and lots of crying, than solely its singing talent. It pulls on the heart strings.
This is an exception for TV talent shows, however, as the majority of people involved are born under a fire or air star sign, the extroverted signs, whereas earth and water signs are termed the introverted signs. Here’s a list of the star signs showing which signs are extroverts and which signs are introverts:
FIRE: Aries – Leo – Sagittarius
AIR: Gemini – Libra – Aquarius
EARTH: Taurus – Virgo – Capricorn
WATER: Cancer – Scorpio – Pisces
This is a wide generalisation as most of us are neither completely introverts or extroverts and yet I’ve found that people often grow into their star sign. Being a Scorpio and one of the “introverted” water signs, I need my privacy and periods of time alone which benefit me deeply. I also have personal planets in Libra and Leo, the extroverted signs, so again, like most of us there are different elements that make up my personality.
Here’s a list of the key players in tonight’s shows with their respective star signs:
BRITAIN’S GOT TALENT
Judges: Simon Cowell – Libra; Amanda Holden – Aquarius; Alesha Dixon – Libra; David Walliams – Leo
Hosts: Ant & Dec – Scorpio & Libra
Coaches: Jessie J – Aries; Tom Jones – Gemini; Will.i.am – Pisces; Danny O’Donoghue – Libra
Presenters: Reggie Yates – Gemini; Holly Willoughby – Aquarius
8 out of the 12 celebrities are air signs, easily the dominant element, ruling social interaction and people skills and it is the most popular sign amongst reality TV judges and presenters. There are 2 fire signs and 2 water signs, so the list leans heavily towards the “extroverts” of the zodiac.
The one element that’s missing is the earth element. In general, people born under these signs prefer a normal life or they excel in the business world and are often anti-celebrity. The one exception on last season’s X Factor was Gary Barlow, a Capricorn, who I personally thought added gravitas to the show, although some people rather unkindly thought he was boring.
Tonight’s shows will no doubt be full of colour, song & laughter and OTT behaviour; the perfect platform for a bunch of extroverts.
