March madness? Yes, when it comes to Lady Gaga, who turns 32 on Tuesday. The actress and singer, who most recently released Joanne and performed at the Super Bowl, celebrates her birthday this week, along with Mariah Carey (March 27) and Céline Dion (March 30).
What is it about March that breeds such musical magnates? The timing is no accident, says Susan Miller, the founder of Astrology Zone. All the ladies are Aries, the first sign of the zodiac — and the harbinger of spring.
“For Aries, what they set out to do, they have to achieve. They’re very hard on themselves. They’re constantly daring themselves,” Miller tells Yahoo Style. “When they’re scared, they never show it. They cover it up with bravado. They talk themselves into winning. It’s a wonderful sign.”
Of course, all have natural vocal talent, which helps. But how they’ve channeled their gifts has made all the difference. All three have overcome adversity. Dion’s husband, René Angélil, died from throat cancer in January 2016, and Carey weathered a very public divorce from husband Nick Cannon and a disastrous New Year’s Eve performance in New York. Gaga has been forthcoming about her struggle with eating disorders and PTSD after being raped as a teen. Still, nothing will keep these women down, says Miller.
“Aries grab life with both arms outstretched. They want to be the best. They want to win. That’s the whole point. They want to do the very best,” says Miller. “You haven’t seen any of these women peak yet. They haven’t even come close. They’re going to have more success that will blow us away. It’s 2020 that will be a huge year for them. These are warriors. They never run out of energy. That’s the talent of Aries.”
She breaks it down even further:
Mariah Carey was born on March 27, 1970: “She’s got to take care of her throat. There are times when her throat gives her trouble. That’s her weak link. She has to rest it. She has to treat her vocal cords very carefully. She has great imagination. She sees life in the ideal rather than how it is. She’s idealistic. It comes out in her music. She’s very talented.”
Lady Gaga was born on March 28, 1986: “There is so much discipline in her chart. She has an incredible work ethic. She has so much passion and drive. Going into music wasn’t a choice for her. She has a great business sense. She has all the elements you need to get ahead, and she harnessed them.”
Céline Dion was born on March 30, 1968: “She drives herself very hard. She was born on a new moon, which is a new beginning. She’s got a nice combination of a winning attitude and a lot of earthy practicality. She understands budgets. She writes music from the depths of her soul.”
