So i don’t usually listen to snark but the widely expressed opinion “this is the least famous person ever to grace the cover of Vogue” were my thoughts as well. Although, to be fair, i was in discussion with Plutonic-Uranian about it and he (as a beauty industry insider C.F.O. type) said that decisions like Dakota or Kardashian for Vogue and Kendall Jenner for Estee Lauder were totally about reviving tired brands and enticing millennials. Not a stoop but a savvy biz move.
BUT she looked strangely vulnerable AND obviously Shades adds to all that – no i haven’t seen it but i did read The Story Of O. That at least has lit cred. This looks more like a Mills and Boon with extra kink. It would have been better with Charlize Theron as the billionaire and Joaquin Phoenix/Rupert Friend/Jeremy Renner as the head-of-security/kinky dude.
But hey, I ain’t the lady-author basically becoming the J.K. Rowling of clit-lit – E.L. James is clearly some sort of a strange genius. She is Pisces – her birthday is this Friday. She has Sun-Jupiter in Pisces trined by Neptune – fantastic for art. Also, Ms James has Venus, Mercury and Saturn conjunct in Aquarius opposite Mars in Leo – fantastic vibe for detached but theatrical hi-jinks. Venus in Aquarius is – how can we say this politely? – not so much interested in merging as they are in technique. The sequel, 50 Shades Freed, has already been filmed.
BTW wasn’t the woman arrested for being drunk and masturbating during a screening of this film awesomely Lower Jupiter in Leo? She probably also had loud clashing prints on as well + a big hair thing. Inhaling too much hair product might have been what tipped her over the edge. Next say, when she got out of jail, she would have gotten home still hungover and blamed her psychic.
Anyway, back to Dakota. She is beautiful and she probably can act. The S.N.L ISIS skit was insane and something she should have shunned. Astrologically, i worry about her in show-biz because she basically has NO FIRE in her chart – she is Libra, with a Moon probably in Scorpio – we don’t know her birth time – and tonnes of Earth. She’s all Air, Earth and Water – super-sensitive.
But successful careers in showbiz need FIRE – not necessarily as your Sun Sign but definitely there in strength. Fire is teflon-coated-aura, putting your lipstick on and strutting out to defiantly face the paparazzi. Technically, Dakota COULD have a Fire Ascendant – Leo, Aries or Sagg but she does not look it.
And, of course, her parents – Don Johnson and Melanie Griffith, a Saggo and a Leo respectively, are Fire incarnate. They were at their peak in the Neptune in Sagittarius era – the late Seventies & early Eighties.
