New Astrology And Numerology Study And Predictions For Dancing With The Stars Season 17 Finals!!

What interesting Astrology personalities and unions we have this season for the Dancing With The Stars Season 17 Finals!! Making this season unique from others, would you believe it if we told you we have two Taureans and two Capricorns in the finals? And to make things even more interesting a Scorpio, an Aquarian, a Pisces, and a Leo are thrown into the mix. Read further to see how the couples Astrological sings might and might not stack up and if you think this might help or hinder them for the finals? DonaMadrina has also included a new Numerology Forecast for us to consider being she was interesting in diving into their “Monthly” and “Yearly” numbers a bit more being their weekly numbers are so close and tight. Note how (once again), she nailed it with her Numerology forecast last week. Tony Dovolani was the only person to have a “red challenging” mark and…well, we all know how that turned out. Also included below is a Horoscope Forecast for each sign from Astrologer Patrick Arundell who is quite a fascinating and fun fellow. If interested, be sure to subscribe to his You Tube site for he forecasts each sign every week. One more thing before you read further, be sure to see Pure Derek Hough for more with Amber and Derek as DonaMadrina has personally studied and forecasted what is in Derek’s Astrological forecast and it is fascinating to say the least.

Ok, ready? Here we go:

Corbin and Karina:

Corbin Bleu – Born February 21st, A Pisces born on the Aquarius/Pisces Cusp
Positive traits: energetic, success oriented, a need to prove themselves, concerned, caring
Negative traits: insecure, pessimistic, isolated
Other famous Aquarians born in the same weekly time period: Michael Jordan, Charles Barkley, John McEnroe, John Travolta

Karina – Born January 2nd, Capricorn
Positive traits: hard working, ambitious, determined, extremely dedicated, capable
Negative traits: dogmatic, bottled up, tyrannical
Other famous Capricorns born in the same weekly period; Oprah Winfrey, Mary Tyler Moore, Donna Summer

Union Together: These two may be opposites being Capricorn is normally reserved and ‘all business’ versus Aquarius’ sense of adventure and playful side. However note how Corbin was born on the cusp of Pisces as well which means he may have an intuitive and imaginative side. The fish can swim high or low….and their moods can do the same. In turn and with all the above combinations, they may have a way of soaking each other up like a sponge when it comes to educating and learning from one another and I definitely think this is what we’ve been seeing in them both along their journey. Do you agree?

Amber and Derek:

Amber – Born February 15th, Aquarius
Positive traits: friendly, inventive, progressive, lively, affectionate
Negative traits: irritated, vulnerable
Other famous Aquarians born in the same weekly period: Jane Seymour, Roberta Flack, Carole King

Derek – Born May 17th, Taurus
Positive traits: caring, persevering, passionate, endures, full of grace, fun loving, imaginative, adventuresome
Negative traits: rebellious, frustrated
Other famous Taureans born in the same weekly period: Bing Crosby, Fred Astaire, Gary Cooper

Union Together: These two signs together may have some conflicts …especially in the beginning. Taurus likes to control while Aquarian wants to be independent and find their own way. However, one thing they do share is a common passion for all things in life….and a grace, warmth, and caring for others (animals and people alike) as well as being lively and adventuresome. They also share a rebellious trait when challenged and times get tough as they both just want to fight that much harder. If these two can find a mutual balance and respect what makes the other tick in the conflicting times, tremendous things are possible. In other words, when they have found that happy spot, watch out. They are unstoppable, enthusiastic, and creative. Is this what we’re seeing in these two? I think so.

More with these two at Pure Derek Hough.

Jack and Cheryl:

Jack – Born November 8th, Scorpio
Positive Traits: passionate, brave, intense, serious, steadfast, a worthy adversary
Negative Traits: Worries, depressed easily, escapist
Other famous Scorpios born in the same weekly period: Sally Field, Tatum O’Neal, Will Rogers

Cheryl – Born May 3rd, Taurus
Positve Characteristics: enterprising, fair, magnetic, teacher
Negative Characteristics: demanding, critical, inflexible
Other famous Taureans born in the same weekly period: Sigmund Frued, Eva Peron, Audrey Hepburn

Union Together: Think ‘the best of friendship’ with these two. Though these two can also be Read more..

Dancing With The Stars Season 17 Numerology Forecast For The Semi-Finals And Finals

As regulars to PureDWTS might know, we usually do an Astrology feature at the end of the season for Finals. Donamadrina added her “Numerology” predictions to the mix last season. Well, today we got to tweeting and talking about it privately and decided to break them up into their own posts for what she was finding regarding last week’s elimination and how the numbers lined up for Val and Elizabeth. Fascinating stuff as you will soon see. Special Note before reading futher: Last season, Donamadrina NAILED it with her Numerology predictions which you can compare and take a look at here. Ok, so below is Donamadrina with her new Dancing With The Stars Season 17 Numerology predictions for the Semi-Finals and Finals…

Donamadrina: Numerology is not an exact science. Just as in Astrology, where you have to consider more than just one’s Sun Sign, so it is in Numerology where you have to consider more than just one’s Life Path number. Also, when looking at our Dancing With The Stars couples, we have to remember that their lives are more than just Dancing With The Stars, and the scoring results. For example, in Week 8 (November 4), both Amber and Derek had challenging numbers, so I was thinking, sadly, it just might be their last week. However they were declared SAFE. So what did their numbers refer to? From what we knew of their private lives, both were challenged health-wise, Amber with her recurring knee injury and Derek with his recurring back injury.

In another example, on November 11th, each couple had a partner with “Extra Sunny” numbers. So who had to go? From the challenging numbers, either Corbin or Amber should have been eliminated, right? However, they were both declared SAFE. We know Amber was still “challenged” by her knee injury, not sure what Corbin’s challenge was. Each had the voting numbers to stay around though. Elizabeth earned a 30 for her last dance (Extra Sunny), but… Read more..

PureDWTS Season 16 Post Elimination Media, Numerology Prediction Correct, And More

We have lots of fun post Dancing With The Stars Season 16 elimination interviews and media to share with you this morning, but, first we’d like to commend reader @DonaMadrina. She nailed it in her Numerology Report that she sent to us for the new Zodiac post this season. She made us a graph in gif form so we could take a look at this again….

NumerologySeason16FinaleChart1

Amazing, isn’t it? GOOD JOB DONA!!xxx

With that said, I’d just like to comment how much I loved last night’s finale. I think my only complaint of the whole night (like many others) was Zendaya’s flat shoes. 8O Other than that, it was so cool seeing Sharna and Andy’s phenomenal Mad Hatter Lady Gaga Jazz number again. What’s more, they made it a huge dance production. And how about Dorothy Hamill and Kristi Yamaguchi’s dance with Henry and Sasha? What a “moment” that was. I also loved the performances by Wynonna (what a powerhouse), PSY (I’m so addicted to that crazy song and dance production now. lol), and Pitbull. A night to remember for sure!! More in Heidi’s Spoiler post and comments. You can also download all the music from the night in John’s new Music post here.

Ok, so let’s get right to some elimination interviews with Access Hollywood. Derek and Kellie, Aly and Mark, and Jacoby and Karina reflect on the season and how happy they are for this experience. Sorry, there isn’t anything posted for Val and Zendaya (yet anyway?)….

E News has a wrap up on the night and some interviews as well here.

And thanks to Kaitlyn showing us their location, below are the On The Red Carpet interviews…..

Let’s hope ET Online has some interviews posted shortly too.

Also, stay tuned to Pure Derek Hough as Miss Heidi will have a full mega wrap up there with Kellie and Derek including more articles and interviews for what you don’t see here.

Ok, more in a bit!!! ;)

ETA: Here is the cast out and about after the finale:

How Will Astrology Influence The Dancing With The Stars Season 16 Final Four?

Every season, I’m always fascinated to learn how Astrology may play a part with our couples and their dancing on Dancing With The Stars. When doing some studying up on the final four couples and their astrological personalities and characteristics from Season 16, it’s no wonder why we saw some behaviors take place on the dance floor and between each of them in their packages, etc. Let’s dive into it and feel free to predict, speculate, and inform us of what you know and think of these zodiac personalities and combinations (let us know what your sun sign is too if you want). Furthermore, and when taking a look at these combinations, who do you think has the strongest chance of winning Dancing With The Stars Season 16?

Derek Hough and Kellie Pickler:

According to the sources I’ve always used, this is a “match”. Derek (as many of you know) is a Taurus “the Bull” born May 17th while Kellie is a Cancer “the Crab” born June 28th. Taurus and Cancer are essentially very compatible signs in terms of love and relationships being the needs of one are the defining characteristics of the other. Taureans are comfort seekers and need reassurances, which is something a Cancer-born person can easily and naturally provide as they are naturally sensitive and nurturing as well. Not only are they support signs, both signs are intellectually forward thinking people so “creating” and making things happen for whatever they are passionate about is done with ease.

Also, when I first found out Kellie was a Cancer, my first thoughts were of pros Tony Dovolani, Peta Murgatroyd, and Dancing With The Stars alumni Katherine Jenkins who are also all Cancers. Note how all three have a “gaze” in their eyes which can make them look as if they are crying, or are ocean like, or look as if they are in the water swimming, or in a distant place. This might be what Carrie Anne is picking up on when she commented Kellie is disconnected at times and she wished she would show more emotion in her dancing. Though in my opinion, it’s not that Kelly isn’t feeling the emotion (because “emotion” is also a strong Cancer characteristic), it might be that ‘distant gaze’ instead which is conflicting. Though if so, watch out, I think Kellie and Derek are very much aware of this issue as this past week we saw “the Crab” make a turn for the best in this area. Would you agree?

Looking closer at their specific birth dates:
Strengths together: Exploring, respectful, expansive
Weaknesses together: unrealistic, chaotic, bankrupt

Jacoby Jones and Karina Smirnoff:

Awww, and we have another Cancer in our midst. Jacoby Jones was born on July 11th. Note how he too has a gaze type look in his eyes at times where he looks to be in a distant place. Though with Jacoby, he seems to have naturally mastered this characteristic to his advantage many times to entertain on Dancing With The Stars. Would you say this is true? Some of his looks during and after performing have had me in tears of laughter.

As for Karina, she is Capricorn born on January 2nd. Capricorns are very work driven and passionate about their quests in life. This is not an issue for Cancers as they too are Read more..

DWTS: How Will Astrology Effect The Dancing With The Stars Season 14 Finalists?

The Stars (in more way than one) are aligned for the Dancing With The Stars Season 14 Finale. What does this mean for Monday and Tuesday night for William Levy & Cheryl Burke, Katherine Jenkins & Mark Ballas, and Donald Driver and Peta Murgatroyd?

If you’ve been following Pure Dancing With The Stars for the last couple of Seasons, you know that one of my interests in life since my mid teens has been Astrology. I like to use it to help me to understand people and myself more and why we are the way we are. Taking it one step further, it’s even more fun to see what certain signs ‘combined’ together might produce such as what we see in the unions on Dancing With The Stars. So, this season, we’re back again with another Zodiac Edition to study and explore the three remaining finalists in this area. You may have studied Astrology too in some fathom. If so, feel free to elaborate on what you think of these combinations and how it might effect the outcome on Monday and Tuesday night? So, let’s get started….

Pure DWTS Season 13 – How Does Or Will The Zodiac Effect Our Dancing Couples For Finals?

Hi All! So, last season we did a an Astrology study on the remaining three couples before the finale. As you know, Kym Johnson, a striking, entertaining, and leading Leo, and Hines Ward, an athletic, deep, and imaginative Pisces, ended up winning Season 12 at no surprise really to any of us. So, what does the Zodiac this season tell us about the teams of Derek Hough and Ricki Lake, J.R. Martinez and Karina Smirnoff, Cheryl Burke and Rob Kardashian and their unions? As said in last season’s Zodiac post, remember this isn’t a forecast post (I’ll leave that to one of you who is more of an expert in that area). Instead, I like to use Astrology as a ‘tool’ in getting to know people or to better understand them and life’s circumstances which in this case are these six people who took on a dance competition. Ok, let’s get started…

J.R. And Karina:

Now this union is interesting. Karina was born on January 2. She is a Capricorn (like Kirstie Alley and her former boyfriend and pro dancer, Maks). J.R. was born on June 14th making him a Gemini (like Mark Ballas). Capricorns take their life and work ethics very seriously. In fact, they are known in the Zodiac to be “hard working” and business minded. Even while on a vacation, they are “working” in some way or thinking about it. Unless Capricorns have other influences working in their chart, they are very intense and serious about their goals 24-7. Geminis, on the other hand, are very adventurous and highly energetic. They are known to have many or several layers to their personalities making one think they have dual personalities. It’s funny because if you know or have known a Gemni like I have in my brother-in-law and several friends (our Heidi being one), you know they can have many projects going on all at the same time (as well as having a busy social life to boot). You wonder how in the world can they juggle everything and yet, they get every single one of their projects finished and on time. I once knew a Gemini friend in school who took on every activity and sport out there and she wouldn’t get serious (or so I thought) about school projects and her studies until the very last minute and she prevailed at the top of her game every time. Leave it only to a Gemini to accomplish such a feat with what would appear to have no organization what so ever, but, this is naturally how a Gemni’s mind and spirit work. These behaviors in a Gemni would be hard for a Capricorn to accept which we’ve seen in some of J.R.and Karina’s packages and rehearsals all season when J.R. wants things light and fun and Karina wants everything more serious. Though if a two like this can be successfully brought together to accomplish the same goal without too much of their personality traits conflicting, just think of the final outcome? Facts are, both Capricorns and Gemnis can get the job done even though their approaches are quite opposite from each other.

Derek and Ricki:

Derek was born on May 17th. He is a Taurus. Ricki was born September 21st. She is a Virgo (like Chelsea Kane last season). Let’s start out by saying the Taurus isn’t called “The Bull” for nothing. They are one of the most determined of the Zodiac. They might not know what they want in life or relationships, but, once they’ve decided, WATCH OUT! They are “finishers” and they are “closures”. Derek’s 3 Mirror Ball trophies are just a mere example of what a “bull” can do when challenged to the end. It’s no wonder Derek is where he is at in life since he made up his mind long ago at a very young age to dance and even left his family and life in Utah to do it. Note too how Taurus are very intelligent and are also “slow thinkers” which we see in all of Derek’s choreography and teaching. They will take their time and go the distance wanting to do everything with extreme perfection where most anyone else would have given up long ago. Being a Virgo, Ricki understands this need to be a perfectionist as well as we’ve seen all season getting to know her. Virgos like to analyze everything and they have a great desire to do things “right” and for everyone around them to do things “right”. If this doesn’t happen, they can get moody and critical of themselves (does this sound familiar of some of Ricki’s reactions after she’s danced?). But, teamed up with Taurus, a Virgo excites them because they can push them to be even more perfect which they don’t mind. The stronger, the better. A Virgo’s love and caring way also has a way of taming and calming “the bull” just at the right times. This is definitely a strong and tight union to watch out for as we’ve seen on the show and them thus far.

Rob and Cheryl:

Cheryl is a Taurus as well. She was born on May 3rd. Just like Derek, she is focused to the bitter end on her prize for whatever she takes on. Her two Mirror Ball trophies also speak for themselves. Rob was born Mar. 17th. He’s a Pisces like Hines Ward (last season’s champ). Pisces feel like they are fish in an infinite ocean of thought and feeling always seeking the purest waters. You’ll see them jumping out of the water happy with life and willing to take risks. At other times they pull back into lower, murkier depths. This ability to tune into deep or higher thoughts inspires a Pisces artistically, creatively, and even musically. This is what we’ve seen of Rob since the season began. He wasn’t sure where the water was right or where he’d fit in the beginning, but, with the “bull’s” protection, strength, focus, and perseverance, Rob is like a shark out of water now. They are a very powerful union indeed as we’ve all found out. They have proven ‘anything is possible’ with the right focus and determination.

So, what do you think? If you were to base the finals on these three couples Zodiac, what would be the outcome and who would be the dominant pair? I honestly can’t decide. 8O

Pure DWTS Season 12 – How Does Or Will The Zodiac Effect Our Dancing Couples For Finals?

From little on, I’ve always been fascinated with Astrology. So, I thought I’d study up on our remaining couples and see if we could get a hint for what’s to come if we were to base the upcoming Finals on their Zodiac signs and unions. Before you read on, keep in mind other influences could be working in their charts (time of birth, life’s successes and struggles, how a person was raised, etc) which could zap anything I might have gathered up below. lol Also, just a side note, that I’m not into forecasting as much as I use Astrology as a ‘tool’ in getting to know people or to better understand them and life’s circumstanes. Below is a reflection of that….just for fun (and not to be taken too seriously).

Maks and Kirstie:

Maks and Kirste are both Capricorns with their birthdays only a few days apart. Kirstie’s birthday is on January 12th while Maks’ birthday is on Jaunary 17th. Capricorns have hard work and organizational ethics and standards for themselves and others. They set their goals high in whatever they do. In fact, they have such a hard work ethic that a vacation to them most often times involves work related projects. They just aren’t happy without work which many don’t understand. But, if you do understand, you are lucky because then you’ve just hit on something magical as Capricorns tend to be one of the most successful, at peace, and happiest of the Zodiac. A Capricorn and Capricorn partnership can be strong since this is a natural understanding for them right from the beginning. Their relationship can go on for a life time never giving up while making their dreams happen. What does this mean for Kirstie and Maks for the Finals? I’m not sure. But, what we do know is these two personalities have broke predictions and boundaries others could not do in self transformation both mentally and physically in such a short time in knowing one another. Not only do we see this in one of them…we see a transformation for the best in EACH of them on Dancing With The Stars.

Kym and Hines:

Kym was born on August 4th. She is a Leo. Hines was born March 8th. He is a Pisces. Leo and Pisces aren’t normally a common union. One is a Water sign while the other is a Fire sign. However, Leo is the king of the Zodiac for a reason. This sign is masterful at leading and taming all the other Zodiac signs. They too have strong work ethics. The most famous leaders in the world have been Leos….with President Obama currently as one of them. Leos are attentive, methodic, theatrical, dramatic, ambitious, creative, noble and magnetic …all the famous and strong qualities we’ve seen in Kym. Pisces are more quiet, imaginative, sensitive, fair, giving, soulful, self sacrificing, and artistic…all the qualities we’ve seen in Hines from his football career, to his charity work, to his role with Kym on Dancing With The Stars. We’ve seen him laugh. We’ve seen him cry. He would have quit the show in order to save Kym’s neck. What does this mean for this couple for Finals on Dancing With The Stars? I don’t know. But, what we do know that these two have been charming and inticing us as a whole all Season long…and what’s more, they’ve been consistant at it and set the bar in class and a sweet genuiness personally too.

Mark and Chelsea:

Mark was born on May 24th which makes him a Gemni. Chelsea was born on September 15th which makes her a Virgo. Gemini are very versatile with their thinking and are on the average easy-going. Though don’t think they can’t get wound up if tested. They have a dual personality which will fight for what they think is right and they can conform to anything they see fit to do. They are also inquisitive, intelligent, inventive, and creative…the latter being very strong characteristics we see in Mark. Virgos, on the other hand, think practical for the most part. They have a need to evaluative, analyze, ask questions, and can be critical. But, they are also industrious, modern, progressive, observing, smart, and are hard workers and perfectionists. Even though these two could conflict in some areas, what these two signs share the most is a wonderful emotional and support magnet for one another when the tough gets going which we’ve seen in both Mark and Chelsea and what we will most likely continue to see in the Finals.

So, what do you think? If you were to base the Finals outcome on these couples Zodiac, who is the dominate pair? Or do you think this is all a bunch of mullarchy? lol

DWTS (literally!): What the Zodiac Says About This Season’s DWTS Couples – PART 1

Another passion of mine (besides dancing, of course, and writing!) is astrology.  While I don’t put full stock in what my horoscope says everyday, I do find it interesting how on-point they are from time to time, and it’s definitely intriguing how some people really behave like their sign says they should. So why not take a look at this season’s couples and see how compatible they are? How well will they work together? Will they fight? Is there any possibility for romance? ;-) Read on and find out in part one of my series on the astrology of DWTS!

 *NOTE: I am not a psychic (although that would be cool), and all of these predictions I’ve made are based on knowledge I’ve gained over the years from books on astrology.  It’s all in good fun, so please don’t get offended or take any of this to heart J

 Aaron (Sagittarius) & Karina (Capricorn) – As a general rule of thumb, next door neighbor signs like these do not typically get along well, as their personalities are often very different.  Sagittarian men like Aaron are typically very flashy, exuberant, impulsive, and may seem even reckless to some; the Capricorn woman is the least “showy” lady of the zodiac, a real class act, and also one of the most cautious –  Archer Aaron’s devil-may-care attitude might not sit well with someone as forethoughtful & premeditative as a Goat like Karina.  Likewise, Aaron might feel constrained by her introspection, and want to really make a splash in the competition.  However, if they can overcome their differences and harness their respective determination (his for adventure, hers for success), they could really have a rewarding partnership.

 Natalie (Leo) & Alec (Aries) – Two fire signs, oh my! This pairing could either sizzle all season long or explode into rubble after awhile. Both signs exude extreme confidence and determination, as well as similar values & beliefs.  However, both are also natural-born leaders, so they will be have to hone their compromise and communication skills to avoid some heated arguments.  There’s a definite “chemistry” between these two from the get-go; The Ram is the zodiac’s “man’s man” and the Lion woman is one of the most alluring, so look for things to really ignite in steamy dances like the rumba where they can really play into the gender roles. 

Mark (Pisces) & Lacey (Cancer) – Ahhh, a watery match made in heaven.  Both are very artistic, compassionate, easygoing souls; their bond could almost be described as “dreamlike”, as their partnership seems almost effortless in terms of emotional understanding.  Expect some very sensitive, emotion-driven performances from this pair. However, there is one caveat to this otherwise perfect pairing: when Fish like Mark are frustrated and upset, they tend to become introspective and withdrawn, which frustrates a Crab like Lacey, who feels the need to talk about their feelings (remember her meltdown in season 7 with Lance?).  But their peaceful natures will ultimately make this partnership a harmonious one that could carry them through to the finale. 

Tom (Aries) & Cheryl (Taurus) – Uh-oh…another partnership of ill-matched next door neighbor signs! This partnership is best described as “the tortoise & the hare”: Taurean Cheryl is patient, steady, and favors security over excitement, while Arians like Tom are impatient, adventure-seeking, and crave instant gratification.  Tom will definitely have to tone down his impulsiveness, while Cheryl may have to sacrifice some safety in favor of some excitement in order to make this partnership work.  But there is a bright side: as I mentioned before, Ram men are the masculine ideal, and earthy Bull women are the feminine ideal – so as strange as this sounds, there could actually be a good physical chemistry between these two on the floor, but more likely in dances like the waltz, where Tom can really “show off” his lady. 

Macy (Virgo) & Jonathan (Taurus) – Both are earth signs, so they share a sense of practicality & cooperation, and a dislike of anything inconsistent or reckless.  Because of this, they will likely err on the side of safety in their performances – I wouldn’t expect any flashy, overtly sexual choreography or daring lifts – but they will stick to tried-and true “basics” and good execution, which will likely make them a favorite with orthodox technicians like Len.  However, Virgins like Macy have a tendency to be perfectionists and are “never satisfied” (to quote a certain nameless former pro from the show that I’ve taken a lesson or two with – he was referring to his ex-wife, who was also a Virgo!), which could frustrate slow-and-steady Bull Jonathan; likewise, she may feel a bit put off by his sometimes stubborn nature.  But being the understanding souls that they are, they should be able to work through any bumps in the road.

 Ashley (Libra) & Edyta (Taurus) – A major strength of this partnership: both Librans & Taureans absolutely love anything to do with fashion, music, or art, so you can expect some to see creative choreography, fun musical choices, and interesting costumes from these two this season.  Libra men are naturally flirtatious, and the charmers of the zodiac – he will definitely be able to work the ladies in the audience into voting for him! But Libra is an air sign, and Taurus is an earth sign, and their respective elements describe them to a T: The sign of the Scales can be a bit flighty and idealistic at times, which might test the patience of a grounded, practical Bull.  These two may take awhile to really “warm up” to one another, but their mutual concern for each other’s emotional well-being will keep them from falling apart. 

 Melissa (Taurus) & Gemini (Mark) – Is this the season of the “next door neighbors” or what? And of all the next-door neighbor partnerships we’ve had so far, this could unfortunately prove to be the most volatile.  As I’ve said already (for the many Taurus’s we have on the show this season!), Bulls like Melissa crave stability, consistency, and commitment.  Which goes completely against the nature of a Twin like Mark, who is perpetual-motion, impatient, and not always the most consistent of souls (which his choreography often shows – he went from a season of brilliant choreography with Kristi, to quite possibility the worst mambo we’ve ever seen on the show…”Baby Got Back”, anyone?). Granted, Mark could come to respect her resolve & determination, and Melissa could be drawn to Mark’s wit & intelligence.  The long-term prognosis for this partnership isn’t great, but then again, Mark has made it work with other ill-compatible partners (Cancer Kristi & Capricorn Shawn), so I guess we’ll have to wait & see!

 Kathy (Aries) & Tony (Cancer) – Opposites may attract; however, this partnership is likely to result in a lifelong, platonic friendship between the two (which is good, because they’re both married!). Bold, ambitious, competitive Aries like Kathy (she’s a successful model, actress, & entrepreneur) may feel frustrated with sensitive Cancer’s desire to “stop & smell the roses” and may even view Tony’s emotional, cautious nature as a bit of a weakness.  Likewise, a Crab like Tony is prone to hurt feelings, and may misinterpret a Ram’s impatience as anger towards him.  But Tony will likely teach Aries Kathy over time that winning isn’t everything, and in turn she will ignite a fire in him that may not have shown before.  And the gentlemanly air of a Cancer man will work wonders in smooth dances like the waltz & foxtrot, where he can really bring out the femininity of his Aries gal, who is often too caught up in work to really embrace her girly side. 

So now you know what the stars have in store for 8 of our couples this season.  Tune in later this week when I analyze the astrological compatibility of the other 8 couples, and also the judges & hosts!

Ultrasound sales specialist by day, semi-knowledgeable DWTS fan by night...with a smattering of hair & makeup enthusiast, occasional model, and crazy cat lady peppered in to make things REALLY interesting ;-) I might pee my pants in happiness if Donnie Wahlberg ever does DWTS - or if they ever use "Sunglasses at Night" as a paso doble.
