Some things in life are both relentless and inevitable. Eating, drinking, consumerism and aging – to name but a few – spring to mind. It is an inherent characteristic to compare ourselves to others by means of looks and assets and to equate ourselves to others by means of status and significance.
That is probably where most of our fascination and inexorable intrigue for the celebrities and those in the limelight comes from. They are thrown in our faces as figures of faultlessness and we look to them for tips on how to put our best faces forward. Call them role-models or heroes, pinups or even obsessions; they bring forth some level of admiration and esteem.
Whether we personally revere them or not, they are in the spotlight and in this month of August, we look to those that celebrate their origin in the Leo/Virgo sign of birth.
