You are the scared little bunny in the skin of a lion.

Whose icon is she anyway? Who can lay the greatest claim on the little girl from Brooklyn who grew up to become La Streisand? Jewish women? Gay men? Gay Jewish men who impersonate women? The real answer, of course, is everyone and no one, for hers is a star that shines brighter than a thousand points of light -- a star too Massive for the mere universe of pop to contain. And what should the rest of the world expect of the children born under your Birthstar's blinding glow? Great hair, great legs, and great voices? Personas for which the term "diva" seems a pale and inadequate description? No, popstrology rarely works so simply, and perhaps that's a good thing. What the science of the pop stars does tell us is that Barbra Streisand resides in one of the most interesting regions of the pop universe -- among the broken-mold originals of the constellation Sui Generis. She rose to greatness not on the strength of talent alone, but on the strength of a potent and idiosyncratic combination of talent, ego, and insecurity, and therein lies the lesson her popstrological children should heed: what we show on the outside is never quite what we are on the inside, but success for you may depend on showing more of the real you than the rest of us typically dare.
