George W Bush and Rambo - Date Twins.
When I first learned that Sylvester Stallone [aka Rocky and Rambo] was born on the same day as George W. Bush, I knew it was time to write about date twins. Date twins are two people who were born on the same day and year but not necessarily at the same time. Astrologers are more fascinated by time twins. Time twins are two individuals who were born on the same day and at the same time. Time twins and day twins are different from conventional twins in that they are not related.
Tony Blair and Graeme Souness
Astrologer, Paul Wright writes in the Astrological Journal [#5 Sept/Oct 2006] "...Tony Blair and football manager Graeme Souness, who were born about 11 hours apart in Edinburgh on 6 May 1953. Though Souness achieved great success as captain of the all-conquering Liverpool F.C. football team of the early 1980s, Wright could not see other striking parallels between their lives. However, I did recall that Souness had major heart surgery on 7 April 1992 and led his players out as manager for the FA Cup within days. On 19 October 2003 Blair had received treatment with cardioversion for an irregular heartbeat and was diagnosed with supraventricular tachycardia. Blair recovered well by cardioversion and he returned home that night and returned to a full schedule on 21 October.
My Time Twin is also an astrologer
Now I have met a few time and date twins. When I lived in London, I used to see a lot of my closest time twin, David Fitzwilliam. He is also an astrologer, though David also practices as a psychic. There were many other differences as he has Capricorn rising and my ascendant is Sagittarius. My son also had a time twin in his class with similar ideas, academic performance and parental similarities. Both managed to chip their front tooth in accidents within days of each other
New Yorker Time Twins
At a new age expo in New York City, I met time twins who had become firm friends. They were born within a few minutes in different hospitals across midtown Manhattan. When they met, they discovered they had been living parallel lives. They talked in a very similar manner - even finishing off each other's sentences!
Here's another set of attractive and unrelated time twins from Brentwood in Essex, England who also became great friends :-
Celebrities born on the same day
In the colour supplement that comes as part of the British Sunday Times newspaper, there is a short piece entitled "Born on the same day". Every week, it prints comments on two celebrities born on the same day and year. It has absolutely no connection with astrology. When I first started to read it, the emphasis was on how different the Date Twins were. However, as time has gone on the similarities have become far more remarkable than the differences.
Texan First Lady and sex-and-drugs artist both born Nov 4, 1946
Early on we had the Texan First Lady, Laura Bush and Robert Mapplethorpe, the "sex-and-drugs artist". Well, you couldn't get two people who appear to be less alike ... Mapplethorpe's life included a heavy consumption of drugs and many homosexual and heterosexual relationships. In 1989, he was the subject of an obscenity trial after his death from Aids in 1989 ... a far cry from Laura Bush.
Yet, Robert M. saw himself as an artist rather than a photographer and promoted artists such as one-time girlfriend Patti Smith through his photography. Laura has done much to promote the talented artists of Texas. For Laura this urge in part comes from her Venus/Mars conjunction in 7th house. Their appreciation of the arts also comes from their moons in Pisces and acting as a patron or leading light of the arts from Saturn/Pluto in Leo. There were other similarities - for example both learnt Spanish [Mercury conjunct Venus in Sagittarius trine Saturn in Leo].
