Check Out These Birthday Twins!

I stumbled across an article on Yahoo! about uncanny sets of birthday twins — folks who were born the same day, month, and year. One example the article gives is George W. Bush and Sylvester Stallone, who were both born July 6, 1946.

Of course, as astrologers, we know that to be “real” birthday twins, the individuals in question must have been born at the same time and in roughly the same geographic location. I’d love to hear about true birthday twins, if anyone has any data.

Speaking of shared birthdays, longtime White House correspondent Helen Thomas and President-elect Barack Obama were both born Aug. 4, though in different years. Interesting then that Thomas takes Obama to task for picking the same old faces for his economic team in this column on the economy.

In her column, Thomas says we’re in a Depression. I’m listening, because the lady has seen a thing or two. She has covered the White House since John F. Kennedy’s administration. Obviously, Thomas wasn’t a member of the White House press corps during the Great Depression, but she was a teen during the worst of it, having been born in 1920.

  1. Okay I met one of my birthday twins (male). Same day within miles of each other never knew his time. Here’s the interesting part within months we HATED each other!

    Maybe we reacted to seeing our own “flaws”, we where both in our middle 20’s. I don’t know. Or maybe it just shows how different raising signs and hence planet house placements play out in reality in very, very different ways.

    The only planet placement difference could of been the moon. In my chart Sun conj. Pluto (Sun 28.39 Leo Pluto 28.18 Leo) and opposes the moon @1degree of Pisces. Maybe he didn’t have the Sun/Pluto/Moon opposition.

  2. My significant other apparently once met someone who was dating his friend and was just one hour older than him. The only significant difference in the chart would be the Ascendant, hers would be in Leo, while my partners’ is in Virgo. Not surpricingly she was much more enthusiastic about the encounter than my partner, who is naturally outgoing (a quadruple Aries), but tends to keep people on some distance.

    What’s interesting is that at some point this friend would have had both a girlfriend and one of his closes friends – and now also the next-office colleague – which practically identical charts.
    astrological chart.

  3. That’s pretty amazing. I want to know more about your parents! 🙂
    You are birthday twins in that you share roughly the same degree Sun sign. However, to be considered true astrological twins, you would have to have been born on the same day, same year, and in roughly the same location.
