“…When Laura Vikmanis’ husband ran off with a younger woman, the 39-year-old knew she needed something to cheer herself up. As she sat during the interval of a Cincinnati Bengals American football game watching the leaps and twirls of the young cheerleaders, her sister came up with an idea, join them. Three years on, Laura is a bona fide Ben Gal, and – at 42 – the oldest cheerleader in American sport. And the rights to her remarkable life have been bought by one of Hollywood’s biggest film studios…”
Okay so there is probably some feminist issue to do with cheerleaders and/or the kind of make-up that can be seen not just from the back seats of the stadium but from outer SPACE.
But i like Laura. It’s the style and zip with which she pulled herself out of a situation in which – let’s face it – some peeps just eat their emotions in donuts or bitch it up the rest of their lives. And many a woman in her scenario (just dumped, mother of two) would NOT want to go try out for something up against a troupe of 20 y.r.o.s AND she got rejected first time around, went away, got fitter, foxier and more tan before coming back to give it another go.
So go Laura.
AND SHE IS A VIRGO.
So she would have spread-sheeted all this. She would ensure that ex-hubby receives automatic email notifications of her movie contracts, offers to get her gear off for mens mags, increasing net worth, fan-mail from wanna-be cubs, inspirational Oprah-style interviews in which she wipes away a delicate tear with one of her acrylic talons (Opi China Glaze Sweet Revenge?) and says that no matter how much of a prick he is, she still respects him.
Moon in Leo. Well, that is a No-Brainer. Ask ANY Moon in Leo person you know or ask yourself if you have Moon in Leo: Have you ever fantasised about being a cheerleader?! Or if you are a male Moon-in-Leo…oh, never mind.
Madame also has a multi-Libra conjunction: Mercury-Venus-Jupiter-Uranus in Libra. She is doing a brilliant job with her Saturn transit: discipline, fitness and the financial challenge of having to deal with Hollywood $$$ and contracts.
So i reckon she Virgoed out with the kids/house and applied all her Libra to being Ms Courtesan/Hubby/in-law pleaser for ages. Then – wham – one day her Moon In Leo suffers a major blow to the ego a la her husband leaving her for the younger lass and VOILA – Virgo Does Vengeance.
