Mortal pop fans were not the only ones to embrace the Dominant Star of 1971, for no popstrological coronation was ever greeted with such enthusiasm within the popstrological firmament as Carole King's. If you run down the list of stars active in the pop universe of 1971, you can clearly see why, for it is difficult to find a star on that list who has never recorded a song written by Carole King. Tony Orlando and Dawn? Yes. Rod Stewart and Isaac Hayes? Yes and yes. George Harrison and Paul McCartney? As the Beatles, yes. And that is without even mentioning the profound debt of gratitude owed to Carole King by her fellow stars of 1971 James Taylor and Donny Osmond, whose only #1 hits were written by the woman who dominated the year of their popstrological emergence. Ruled by the quintessential star in the constellation Invisible Hand -- a woman who very nearly remained popstrologically invisible despite her foundational contributions to the universe of pop -- the micro-generation born in 1971 stands at the ready to invest its labor in the projects of others, though not necessarily without a bit of grumbling.
