Start        Birth Years        Birthstars        Constellations

The strongest voice of popstrological protest against disco and the wicked hedonism for which it stood came from the least likely of places in 1978: the traditionally nonconfrontational constellation Oh…Canada. It was the churchy, parental Anne Murray who stood up and became the year's Opposing Star in a year when no one else was brave enough to take the job. Disco's own excesses may ultimately have done more than Anne Murray did to bring the constellation Disco Ball crashing down, but that does not diminish the importance of her dissenting voice to those born in the popstrological Year of the Bee Gees. She may have sounded like a big, fat bummer at the time, but in being one, she endowed the children of 1978 with at least some slight sense that just because the whole world seems to get behind something, it doesn't make it right. Of course that same lesson was reinforced by 1978's Wild Card star, Barbra Streisand & Neil Diamond, a popstrological Power Couple that most of the world got behind, but that in many, many ways simply wasn't right.
