• • Did Mae West read horoscopes? Yes. She would have related to an astrological forecast such as this one: "As a lion, you let out your roar, Walt Whitman's "barbaric yawp" that inspires and uplifts others.

You excel at working with the public, in front of people — — an actor, orator, speaker, CEO would all be easy for you. No menial job would do for you. ...
