"... Living in the upper air
Intelligence and clarity shine from Mick Jagger's eyes, for he
is a child who looks out at life with profound curiosity and an
urgent desire to learn everything he can about the world and the
people in it. He is likely to find the challenges of schoolwork
exciting and stimulating, and he deserves the best educational environment
available to provide sufficient stimulus on the intellectual level.
This does not mean he should be pressured into academic excellence,
but it does
mean he needs real knowledge taught by well-trained minds. He is
likely to see through and become bored by anything less. Because
Mick Jagger tends to process external experiences as well as feelings
through a framework of developing concepts and ideals, he is likely
to display from quite an early age a tendency toward reflective,
self-contained and precociously civilised behaviour. Being a naturally
tolerant child, quick to recognise in principle that the feelings
and opinions of family, teachers and friends are as valid and important
as his own, he will make every effort to be fair in his ways of
interacting with others. In turn nothing is likely to upset him
more than a sense of unfairness in others' behaviour. It might therefore
be wise for parents and family to be as clear, fair and reasonable
as possible in their explanations, requests and impositions of discipline.
Every effort should be made to avoid the kind of favouritism or
emotional game-playing which so often occurs unconsciously in family
life. If an older sibling is given special privileges, make sure
Mick Jagger is given a reasonable explanation. If there is no reasonable
explanation, equal privileges should be given to both. This child
needs to be treated as ethically as you would treat an adult friend,
for on this level he may well be wiser than many adults. And at
all costs avoid emotional manipulation as a means of getting him
to behave. As Mick Jagger develops, he will probably display an
unnerving tendency to ask, "Why?" if things are not made clear,
for he has an unerring nose for dishonesty and emotional blackmail...."

Information about the Child's Horoscope
"... Problems with accommodating everyday needs
Mick Jagger's great strength lies in his wonderful mental abilities,
evident in his growing ability to handle difficult concepts and
articulate his ideas, and these deserve as much support and encouragement
as possible. However, his innate fear of his very powerful feelings
will continue to be a challenge throughout his early years. Control
is unusually important to this child, and he may sometimes display
efforts at self-control which make him seem strangely precocious
and aloof compared with other children. In fact these efforts are
not strange at all, but are part of his instinctive need to preserve
his autonomy and protect his vulnerable feelings. Also, there are
innate ideals in Mick Jagger which are likely to become increasingly
important as he learns to articulate them - ideals such as fairness,
truthfulness and kindness to others. This ethical core contributes
to a decent, kind and highly attractive personality. But his outer
surface of amiability will often conceal very powerful feelings
and needs - particularly an urgent need for emotional support and
reassurance which Mick Jagger may not be able to express but which
may lie behind a great many of his efforts to be "good" and "perfect"
in the eyes of others..."
"... A rich imagination and a lively mind
this imagination and breadth of vision, however, are challenged
by the perennial dilemma which Mick Jagger is likely to encounter
throughout his childhood - the difficult realm of his emotions and
personal needs. His marvellous gift of creating a rich and complete
fantasy-world of his own design may in fact further alienate him
from difficult feelings which he would rather avoid. Mick Jagger
may make up a story rather than confront his feelings of anger,
need or loneliness. It may therefore be important for parents to
recognise that his methods of communicating his feelings will not
always be direct. He may exaggerate, infer or disguise what is happening
inside him, not because he is untruthful but because he does not
understand what is really troubling him. The physical world may
also prove somewhat problematic for Mick Jagger because his rich
imagination and identification with the figures of myth and fairy
tales will cause him to rebel against too many boundaries, rules
and restrictions. Routines and the necessity of waiting are likely
to be experienced as enemies, and he may show a tendency toward
restlessness and refusal to perform "boring" activities and tasks
which could arouse annoyance or anger in parents and family members.
It would be a mistake, however, to assume that Mick Jagger is "spoiled"
or lazy. He has a warm and generous heart and a great willingness
to please, and he is also capable of plenty of effort to achieve
his dreams - provided the promise of the future justifies present
boredom. Understanding, support and encouragement are needed to
help this child come to terms with mundane reality and difficult
emotions, because his real allegiance is to the inner world of ideas
and dreams. This radiant inner world will need to be balanced by
a greater appreciation of the material world as he grows up, but
it should never be crushed through secret envy on the part of parents
or family members, oppressive routines imposed without a purpose,
or blindly authoritarian attitudes which attempt to break his spirit.
Mick Jagger may be slower than some children to adapt to external
requirements and limits. But with enough love and support he will
eventually achieve such adaptation, which will provide a strong
and well-grounded base for his unique mental and imaginative gifts..
"... A child who sees the drama in
Nothing is as endlessly fascinating to Mick Jagger as the
continuous stream of images which pours from his fertile imagination.
His real abode is the dramatic realm of myth and fairy tale, and
he will seek to express all the larger-than- life melodrama of his
fantasies in every way possible. He possesses great quantities of
sheer unadulterated vitality, and
the intensity of his imaginative assault on ordinary everyday life
may sometimes prove extremely tiring to family members and friends.
Everything must be big and exciting and full of extreme emotion.
Mild irritation in Mick Jagger is transformed into global rage,
and love will be expressed as a passionate and all-consuming attachment.
Frustration may lead to really flamboyant tantrums, and whatever
he finds interesting will possess his whole heart - for a time,
until something more exciting comes along. Then the old interest
will be forgotten as though it had never been. He is also acutely
conscious of himself as the protagonist in all these dramas, and
will therefore appear quite self-centred and concerned with the
image he conveys. There is great style and flair in everything he
does, but sometimes he may pose a little and "milk" a situation
for everything he can - all for the purpose of infusing boring old
reality with some of the magic and grandeur of the mythic realm.
He can be intensely loving and loyal, and has a courageous and generous
heart. But it is natural for him to be interested primarily in himself.
If all the world is a stage, as Shakespeare once wrote, and all
the men and women (and children) merely players, then Mick Jagger
intends to be a star - or, at the very least, the villain if he
cannot achieve the main heroic role. He would rather be thought
badly of - the chief troublemaker at home, for example, or the "terror"
of the neighbourhood children - than not thought of at all. He carries
within him the deep sense of a special destiny, and has no intention
of being deflected from what he fantasises as a great and wonderful
future. From the earliest months of life he will contrive to draw
everyone's attention to himself, sometimes at the expense of quieter,
more self-effacing siblings. Mick Jagger may need to learn that
other people are important in their own right, and not just supporting
roles in his own drama. Yet his sunny charm and magnetism are irresistible,
and his periodic bouts of undisguised egotism will always be forgiven...."
"...The vision of a courtly world
Mick Jagger's perception of the world is full of high drama.
He has no intention of being one of the cast of extras standing
along the roadside watching the main action. He
can sometimes be very aggressive in claiming centre stage, and much
tact may be needed to help him recognise the needs and rights of
siblings. If he is the eldest child in the family, he may express
intense and prolonged jealousy at having to share parental love
with a new arrival. If he is a younger child he may resent the special
privileges accorded older siblings. He will need a great deal of
loyalty, affection and affirmation of his lovability until he is
old enough to formulate his own goals. Then he will begin to seek
attention and admiration through his accomplishments. For this reason
Mick Jagger should be encouraged to be actively creative and take
pride in doing things well, so that he does not resort to manipulative
tactics in order to get the reassurance he craves. As he gets older
he will not mind the envy or competitiveness of other children,
for such envy can be a measure of his importance just as much as
adulation can. He has an instinctive understanding of this basic
human mechanism and is therefore not afraid to shine. Winning gives
him great satisfaction even if the losers are annoyed...."
"...The craving to be first and best
Mick Jagger possesses a fiercely competitive spirit which
demands that he is unquestionably first and best. He may therefore
resist sharing love, time and space in a large family, and may also
have difficulty in group participation at school. He
is a solo performer, and in early life this may cause many storms
because his combustible temper and intense self-will ensure the
loudest possible protest if he does not get what he wants immediately.
Being naturally quick and bright, he may also be impatient with
slower siblings. As he gets older, his enormous reserves of energy
can be encouraged to take more constructive channels. He needs a
lot of physical activity and may enjoy sports or competitive games.
If he shows an inclination toward such pursuits, encourage him to
learn the patience necessary to develop winning skills. If he shows
intellectual aptitude, his competitive spirit can be encouraged
to develop academically - or along artistic lines if he displays
interest in playacting, storytelling, painting or dance..."
"...Everything in excess
Mick Jagger perceives everything, including himself, in
grand and intensely theatrical terms. His imagination is perpetually
active, injecting into ordinary life a sublime vision of an exciting
world where more is always better. He
finds it hard to be imprisoned in what others call reality without
some hope of an adventure around the next corner. A domestic environment
entirely focussed on material security and daily routines will prove
heavily oppressive to him. For this reason parents need to provide
him with some excitement and change - even if this is simply a regular
supply of new books or a walk to a different place each day - so
that his inquisitive and restless mind can discover something new.
Mick Jagger may enjoy stirring up trouble if he becomes bored -
not the serious kind, but small acts of mischief such as practical
jokes. Even a good quarrel is more interesting than day after day
of interminable domestic sameness. Danger may carry a certain excitement
for him, although he has an excellent instinct for self-preservation.
But parents may have some hair-raising moments when they find him
clambering over a forbidden fence to steal the neighbour's apples
or paint graffiti on the school wall..."
A wealth of artistic gifts
Socrates once spoke about his "daimon" - an inner creative
spirit which propelled him toward the fulfillment of his destiny.
Mick Jagger might be said to have this kind of "daimon". Such a
powerful creative force can be a burden even for a wise adult, and
Mick Jagger has not yet developed a mature capacity to formulate
and channel it. The result may be many outbursts, tantrums and periods
of hyperactivity, as well as friction and rivalry with siblings
as he seeks to impose his will on the environment. However, as he
gets older it will gradually become easier for him to cope with
his turbulent inner world - particularly if parents and family members
are prepared to support his fertile imagination and developing creative
interests. Whatever the presiding family values, it is not likely
that Mick Jagger will ultimately adhere to any values other than
his own. These are the values of the artist and the visionary rather
than those of the collective. If parents are prepared to accept
his highly individualistic nature and can combine ordinary everyday
guidance and discipline with empathy and respect for his need for
myth and magic, he will be able to develop a solid sense of self-worth,
enabling him to be less stubborn and impenetrable. He is not innately
gifted with the ability to recognise the separate needs and natures
of others. But with the loving support of family members, his innate
nobility and loving heart will allow him to meet this greatest of
an impact on life
Mick Jagger loves to infuse reality with the images of his inner
world, and his mind is attuned to future potentials and possibilities.
The need to express his developing ideas to others is highly important
to him. He will try to inject a note of individuality into any subject
he studies. Because he is likely to be more interested in the broader
picture than in one highly specialised area of knowledge, he needs
an educational environment where teachers can recognise that music
has something in common with mathematics, and that one cannot study
history without studying human nature as well. This holistic and
far-ranging quality of mind may make Mick Jagger do extremely well
in subjects which inspire him, while he may do surprisingly poorly
if the subject or the teacher are too narrow or mundane. The operative
word here is inspiration - he needs to feel his understanding is
growing through discovering meaningful connections, not shrinking
through memorising too many facts. So intuitive and imaginative
is his mind that he may have a hard time settling down to ordinary
school routines. He dislikes the more boring aspects of learning
and may have a tendency to procrastinate and daydream rather than
getting down to doing homework. If possible it would be worthwhile
considering a more progressive and creatively focussed type of school
for him. If impossible, try to make provision for his highly active
imagination through encouraging creative hobbies and interests outside
school. Academic prowess may prove less important for his future
than the chance to find appropriate avenues for creative self-expression
