Happy Birthday, America: Kismet for the Year Ahead

By , Columnist

It is America’s 235th birthday. Three cheers for the jolly good fellowette which has grown more progressive with age and opened its mind to same sex marriage and electing a Black president, whose daughter Malia also happens to turn 13 today. Also celebrating a birthday today is Jersey Shores’ Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino, original Dear Abby columnist Abigail Van Buren, her twin sister Ann Landers, and controversial journalist and personality, Geraldo Rivera.

According to TLC’s July 4 Birthday Astrology, it's not always easy to get along with July 4 Cancers, who are a strong-willed and determined bunch. Yet they are fair enough to admit when they are wrong and even apologize once in a while. July 4 natives have a humanitarian streak and will do many good deeds in their life, but they prefer to do them secretly. July 4 individuals are generally regarded as leaders by the people in their circle of friends, and they may seem somewhat distant because of this attitude of authority. They are equally regimented in romance. They leave nothing to chance and are forever trying to "manage" those they love.

With the exception of Malia Obama, who is probably quite a nice girl and has no choice but to live a “secret” life behind the shield of Secret Service escorts, The Situation, Dear Abby, and Geraldo Rivera have strong-willed and determined personalities. The same can be said for America which, despite its flaws, has always been good to me.

Whether you follow medieval metaphysics or believe your destiny is in your own hands, horoscopes can provide insightful information like which lottery numbers to choose. 

CafĂ© Astrology predicts the following for those born from the womb or from a Declaration of Independence on today’s date:

This is a strong year for learning and communications. You are able to find new insight into old problems, and your thinking processes during this period are likely to be especially original. This is a good year for projects involving technology or New Age topics. You may find more opportunities to attend meetings and other organized group activities, to communicate online, and to take part in activities involving computers, science, or metaphysics. Relationships with younger people in your life are rewarding. A subject or even a person can be especially inspiring, prompting you to explore new perspectives.

Work is solid this year, and you can see results from your efforts, or at least foresee success down the road. This gives you a sense of responsibility and a feeling of directedness and purposefulness.

You might enjoy increased influence, faith, and insight this year. The desire for more personal significance can motivate you to more ambitiously pursue personal or professional goals. The ability to sway or persuade can be enhanced. You might solve a problem that has been in existence for some time, or capitalize upon a resource that was previously hidden, and take steps towards self-improvement.

Steady progress towards your goals is indicated this year. You may be refining your skills this year, and can enjoy much success doing so.

Happy birthday, America! Here’s to more progressive upcoming years and less of your politicians emailing photos of their wieners.
