Start        Birth Years        Birthstars        Constellations

To have been born during this slice of time is to have been marked perhaps not for greatness, but almost certainly for something at least as great as what was predicted for you in your youth, and that is no small gift. But if children of the Michael Jackson generation wish to avoid the certain downfall awaits those who repeat his mistakes, they must understand what eventually brought Michael Jackson down: nave decision-making -- bad judgment born not of hubris but of innocence. Specifically, it was the bad judgment to form a popstrological Power Couple with Paul McCartney near the end of his year on the popstrological throne that appears to have sealed Michael Jackson's fate, and the children of 1983 should take care to develop at least a bit of the distrust and skepticism that Michael clearly hadn't developed by the year of their birth. Less than a month after their birth year ended, after all, and less than two weeks after Say Say Say dropped from #1, Michael Jackson caught fire shooting a Pepsi commercial, and three months later, he made his first appearance in the strange uniform of some unknown foreign navy.
