Written in the stars?
Marlon is quite pleased that the astrologist is dead on about the girls.
Two years ago I received a session with an astrologer as a birthday present. He said a few interesting things about the stars and how it all works (still don’t get it) and then he went on to give me a month to month prediction specific to my time, place and date of birth. This was fascinating and as it turned out, eerily accurate.

So I went back a month later and got him to do the kids’. This was probably one of the coolest experiences ever. He gave me a heads-up on each one of them in terms of their personalities, what they were likely to achieve, what risks they may face in-terms of life lessons etc.

A good friend said to me “you mustn’t listen to that, it’s like opening a doorway to the devil.” But most of the stuff the guy said was good stuff and he also talked about God and, you know...

He said, in broad-strokes, Hannah would make money in unusual ways – she’s already asking me how much she’s getting for doing the illustrations in the book we did, which was published in New York last month.

Maddison would be as difficult as all hell because apparently she has a “Managing Director’s profile” and will basically push people around to get her way. He also said she would need strict discipline or else she’d literally get away with murder. I’m still looking for the cat, I see telltale tufts of hair from time to time, but little Vixy still hasn’t come back.

Sofia would be a bit of a bohemian and she has a tendency to addiction, specifically electronic addiction. At age 2 Sofia SMSes me all the time. She’s figured out how to make smiley faces and uses her mom’s phone at will. I kid you not!

He said a lot of things about the kids, which I have on tape. And honestly I don’t know how they do it, but astrology has been around since the beginning of time and clearly it must have some merits. I certainly have noticed and was aware of my kid’s personalities before I saw him.

Going through the experience has given me something of an advantage in raising them, to the extent that I understand what they’re about even though they’re still discovering themselves. I have no doubt that Hannah will be successful at some kind of art form. Maddi will probably head up some corporation one day and Sofia clearly is destined to emerge as the saviour of Europe after the nuclear holocaust, by SMSing everybody to love each other more. So there you have it, it’s been forecast and so shall it be.

Do you think our destinies are pre-ordained and would you have your children’s profiles done?
