psychic stories and articles

Joan was born on May the 23rd 1933. She made her film debut in 1952 in I Believe in You and was quickly spotted by 20th Century Fox. Initially, she was hyped as the contender to Elizabeth Taylorâs crown. Taylor had dominated the film world for some time as the cinemaâs premiere sex symbol. While Joan had sex appeal in spades, she also had an outspoken nature. In an interview in 1954, she said, âtheyâre always carrying on about there being no women of star material in England. They donât bother to build us up; they concentrate on building the men.â Had Joan not the talent and the bankability to back her up, a comment like this could very well have ended her career.
Instead, she went from strength to strength, always daring to push the envelope a little further. In the 1970s she shed her âgirl next doorâ image in favour of becoming a full blown sex siren, appearing in movies, such as the The Stud and The Bitch. However, the 1980s saw Joan re-invent herself once again and this time in the role of the diva. In 1981 the American TV show Dynasty was struggling for viewers. However, with the casting of Joan in the role of Alexis Carrington, Dynasty went on to rival Dallas for the number one spot in the TV ratings war. Collins herself was nominated six times in succession for a Golden Globe, for her portrayal of the millionairess super-bitch. In retrospect, Aaron Spelling, the showâs producer said, âWe wrote a character, but that character could have been played by 50 people and 49 of them would have failed. She made it work.â Rather than resting on her laurels once the show finished, Joan embraced a career in theater, making her Broadway debut in Noel Cowardâs Private Lives. Countless, shows, films, TV appearances and husbands later, Joan is still going strong.
What part do the stars play in her extraordinary career? Joan is a Gemini born in the year of the Rooster; a combination of two of the most creative and dynamic signs in the Eastern and Western zodiacs. As a Rooster, Joan is blessed with an apparent sixth sense. In truth, this is no more than an uncanny ability to observe people and discern their true characters. This gift, when combined with the dual nature of the Twins, makes it almost a foregone conclusion that Joan was to become a respected actress.
Geminis find it very easy to inhabit a character yet, contradictorily, are able to be themselves at the same time. Joanâs detractors may say that she only ever plays herself. However, using her powers of observation, Joan is able to draw on other people to create extensions of herself. In this way, Joan makes her character portrayals appear effortless and, on some levels, almost indistinguishable from her own. The truth is that, while she may never strap on a hump and a false nose, Joanâs characters are subtle embellishments of her own character, drawn from the library of observations she keeps within.
Another factor in Joanâs staying power is her outspoken attitude to a very fickle industry. Roosters are well known for speaking their minds, but not in a quiet way. Roosters crow their opinions from the rooftops and while this may have earned her a few enemies, it will also have earned her a lot of respect. Where others fear to speak the truth as they see it, Joanâs Chinese star sign has wisely influenced her to do just the opposite.
Both Roosters and Geminis are looking for constant stimulation. While they are committed to the job in hand, it is new projects that excite them. In addition, Geminis have a single-minded fascination with words. Acting and writing are as natural to Joan Collins as brushing your teeth
Recognized as a British institution and an international star, Joan has utilized the best of her star signs to make perceptive and incisive career moves. As 2010 sees her on another new TV, there seems to be little sign of her stopping.
