Today Young Voters, Filibustas, and Collar Poppin’ Politicos coverage is focusing on the burning issue of candles in the White House. We come together to acknowledge today, the Sixth Day of the Seventh Month in the Year Two-Thousand and Seven as the birth date of the forty-third President of The United States of America.
That’s right…Happy Birthday, George W. Bush. 61 years young and enjoying every piece of Life’s fruits.
While I could sit and wonder what the President is wishing for as he blows out his candles, I’m choosing to spend my time on a greater pursuit of knowledge – astrology. The position of the stars says a lot about what you bring to the world. As a man in power, I think it would be interesting to see some of Bush’s connections to others born on the sixth of July.
Powerful individuals being the topic, then the Dali Lama Tenzin Gyatso is your man! The 14th Lama was brought to full power as chief of government in India at the age of fifteen. He was said to be the reincarnation of a past Lama. Others who have found power from a July 6 birth are American icons Sylvester Stallone, known for his role in Rocky I-VII, and 50 Cent, known for his survival of multiple gunshot wounds and “Get Rich or Die Trying” album and movie.
The President’s storyline really doesn’t mirror those of the aforementioned icons. But there is an undeniable Bush birthday connection to Tia and Tamera Mowry, famous twin actresses who are known for their exploits in tabloids. Hmm…sound much like the Presidents’ daughters?
Caroline Trentini, who I would rather take on a date faster than both the Mowry or Bush twins combined, was also born on this day in 1987. Another woman of power, Della Reese, the famous African American actress, was born on this day. And not to be outshined is the famous Mexican painter Frieda Kahlo, who was most known for her masterpiece “The Two Fridas” painted in 1939.
With all of the power that has been brought to the earth on this day, July 6, I am convinced that this is a day for individuals destined to be powerful and famous. So I will celebrate my birthday like my fellow Cancers would do: act in a couple of movies, write a rap, jog some stairs, and govern a country.
Happy Birthday to me.
