Adam Sandler: 9 September 1966
When we can’t figure out up from down, are confounded with the ways of life, humor is one of the best remedies going. Does Adam know he’s providing humanity with the valuable service of comic relief? With a mile long list of comedies under his belt, he must. Hilarity seems to come easy for Mercurial Adam; making a joke is one of the ways changeable Mercury spins straw into gold. But this sensitive funny man plays sensitive on-screen (remember 50 First Dates falling in love with brain damaged Drew Barrymore) and off, for his critics – to whom he’s denied interviews for periods of time. The Virgin is extremely sensitive to criticism, and like the fairytale Princess and the Pea, one critical comment can be the existential pea that keeps Virgo up at night. By far, Virgo is her own worst critic and so we wonder if humor helps Adam lighten up on him self? After all he says he needs to be reminded to take the time to enjoy life, appreciate its goodness – a revealing insight into this funny man’s character. Every hardworking perfection-driven Virgo needs the occasional reminder to stop and smell the roses!
