Zendaya’s zodiac sign shows why she’s the perfect Gen Z icon

Gen Z? More like Generation Zendaya!

Having catapulted to the top of the world, powerhouse performer Zendaya, 25, has captivated audiences across the globe. With highly anticipated “Spider-Man: No Way Home” premiering on Dec. 17, 2021 — and possibly set to be one of the biggest movie premieres ever — her career will continue to reach new heights.

With an adorable relationship with co-star Tom Holland, 25, and many new projects in the pipeline, Zendaya has the staying power to be one of the most iconic stars of her generation. 

Let’s dive into what the stars have to say for her!

Zendaya’s birth chart shows that she’s so chill

Zendaya (born Zendaya Maree Stoermer Coleman) was born on Sept. 1, 1996. That makes her a Virgo sun with a Taurus moon. According to her birth time listed online, she’s an Aquarius Rising. I often don’t trust a celebrity’s birth time unless they’re personally shooting it to me over DM or a text (holler at me!), but I do think that an Aquarius Ascendant resonates with how our Gen Z queen presents herself.

First and foremost, we know that her chart is predominantly composed of earth and air energy. She’s highly intelligent and she works hard. She also has a grounded confidence to her, which is why she is so appealing to a generation that feels cool in their skin and celebrates authenticity. Her chart is ruled by Uranus (the planet of genius) and Saturn (the planet of perseverance), with her sun sign being ruled by Mercury (the planet of communication). She is a workaholic who is highly analytical and logical and knows how to get what she wants by presenting herself as practical and reliable. She can navigate the path of least resistance while playing to her strengths because she’s strategic and knows when to strike and when to trust stillness. She’s methodical, which I just love about her. S-L-A-Y!

Gen Z values freedom and expressing their truth but is less concerned with all the flashy dramatics of previous generations. On one hand, they’re certainly dreamers — but they’re more practical. This grounded nature helps them to organize to make things happen, rather than stressing about what they can’t control. Zendaya epitomizes this energy because she’s down-to-earth and resilient, even to a degree of being too cool to be “too intense.” She’s also not an overly emotional person, as she presents herself as calm, collected and intellectual. Her Taurus moon can make her stubborn and sensual, but she’s ultimately realistic in her emotions and likely easy to get along with. AKA: the perfect kind of diva.

Zendaya has an intrinsic ability to enchant people — whether it’s through her disarming down-to-earth authenticity or when she steps into her goddess persona. The fact that she can balance both gives her quite the range and is especially promising for the kinds of roles she will be able to portray effortlessly. Her communication skills are of prime importance within her birth chart, and she can easily cause people to feel something — and that bodes well for her musical and film careers.

With her sun linking to Jupiter, she has a tendency to be optimistic and radiant while also seeing the big picture. Her Venus and Mars are united in Cancer, which shows that she’s alluring and attractive — even if she doesn’t always initially open her heart to the true sensitivity within. She values people who are willing to put in the effort to get to know her before she shows her genuine vulnerability. I even went into this particular assessment in my previous article about Zendaya’s astrological compatibility with Tom Holland.

Last to mention in her chart is that powerhouse Pluto stands atop her Midheaven, showing that she is motivated for power and immensely ambitious. On one hand, she can achieve large-scale success (clearly) and transform herself many times in the process, which makes her all the more fascinating to watch. However, there may be some power struggles with authority figures or within her professional life several times throughout her career that ultimately redirect her onto new paths.

Predictions for Zendaya’s future

In 2021 and 2022, Zendaya is in one of the most important periods of her life. That is because Jupiter, the planet of luck and expansion, as well as Saturn, the planet of strength and perseverance, are orbiting within her Ascendant. That means she’s experiencing tremendous growth and luck while shouldering newfound responsibility. This will set up personal and professional goals that echo out over the coming 12 and 30 years, respectively.

The year 2022 will be magnificent for all of Zendaya’s personal and professional relationships, and she’ll find that the public loves and adores her even more. She will find that incredible partnerships smile upon her then. Sometimes this bodes well for making long-term promises, moving in and marriage but, to be honest, I think those things may come later in the decade (or even in the early 2030s) for her because her chart speaks of so much practicality, rather than deciding to rush any relationship.

As for karmic cycles, she is going to be seeing some huge developments around her communication skills, media projects and travel from 2021 until 2023, too. Life isn’t slowing down for her — it is merely propelling her farther and faster toward every great horizon.

Sports world reacts to John Madden’s death

Legendary NFL coach and broadcaster John Madden died Tuesday morning at 85, the NFL announced. News of the football icon’s passing hit Twitter on Tuesday evening, and athletes, coaches and broadcasters from across the sports world reacted.

Fellow broadcasting legend Dick Vitale, who is currently battling cancer, called Madden “the greatest analyst of all time of any sport” in his Twitter tribute.

Former Yankees pitcher and notable Raiders fan CC Sabathia said “your legacy will live forever.” Madden coached the then-Oakland Raiders from 1969-78, a couple of years before Sabathia, a Vallejo, California native, was born. Lakers star LeBron James had similar words about Madden’s lasting legacy, adding an infinity emoji.

Former tennis star and social justice activist Billie Jean King recalled meeting Madden as a “privilege.”

Radio voice of the Rangers Kenny Albert, a five-sport broadcaster who’s been with FOX Sports since its inception in 1994, shared a photo circa 26 years ago to remember Madden.

ESPN’s Bomani Jones took a bit of a shot at current color commentators, noting that Madden “set an unreachable standard.”

Frank Caliendo, who’s made a career out of impersonations, including one for Madden, said he was surprised how emotional he felt.

Several football players, and others, including Saints running back Mark Ingram II and former Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant, credited Madden with being part of the reason why they love football.

Rams wide receiver and NFL MVP contender Cooper Kupp quote the late coach in his tribute: “The road to Easy Street goes through the sewer.”

Miles McBride’s Knicks role will lessen with Kemba Walker’s resurgence

Miles McBride’s Knicks role will lessen with Kemba Walker’s resurgence

MINNEAPOLIS — The Knicks got back another body in rookie point guard Miles McBride, who was cleared from protocols Tuesday and rejoined the team in Minnesota.

But there is no longer any hype for the rookie’s return. Kemba Walker is back as the starting point guard and coming off winning Eastern Conference Player of the Week honors with four standout games, including his Christmas Day spectacular. The Knicks have gone 2-2 since Walker regained the starting job.

“It’s great,’’ coach Tom Thibodeau said. “He had a great week. He’s playing great basketball. The team winning helps him get recognized and he was a big part of driving that winning. It’s great for the team.’’

McBride was also spectacular in his last outing before getting COVID-19, when he played the entire second half Dec. 16 in Houston and seemingly earned a spot in the rotation. In fact, McBride had strung together two decent outings before he was ruled out. But things have changed since his emergence and McBride is likely back to being a bit player.

Without a practice, McBride wasn’t even expected to see time when the Knicks faced the Timberwolves to kick off a four-game road trip.

Of course, with Walker’s arthritic knee, anything is possible. The Knicks play Detroit on Wednesday in a back-to-back, so it’s uncertain whether Walker will complete both contests. In addition, Immanuel Quickley is out of COVID-19 protocols but Thibodeau wasn’t sure he was ready for meaningful minutes.

That left Walker against the depleted Timberwolves, who were missing their three top players (Anthony Edwards, Karl-Anthony Towns, D’Angelo Russell), all because of COVID-19 .

When McBride got sidelined by the virus and Derrick Rose needed ankle surgery, Walker was resurrected by Thibodeau and it’s been a stunning comeback story.

Though Thibodeau has clear reservations about Walker based on his nine-game banishment due to his defensive malaise as an undersized point guard, he admitted after the Christmas Day triple-double against Atlanta that Walker is playing “much more aggressive.”

Walker’s triple-double that featured 10 points, 12 assists and 10 rebounds was a lot different than his prior outing, when he scored 44 points against Washington.

“I thought his passing was terrific,’’ Thibodeau said before the Knicks resumed their schedule.

“Kemba had control of the game. The game tells you what to do. That’s what I loved about the way he played. I don’t think he forced anything. They puts size on him and were aggressive in their pick-and-roll coverage. He didn’t fight it. He attacked pressure the way you like to attack pressure. You don’t fight pressure with pressure. Don’t try to split it. Get rid of it, go to the backside. Let the game tell you what to do.’’

The Knicks coach is finally seeing all the elements of what Walker can do. Before his demotion, Walker was nothing more than a no-defense, 3-point shooter whose plus-minus was an abysmal minus-122.

Thibodeau was also concerned about his durability in sitting out two of the three back-to-back sets. The last load management game in Atlanta in late November triggered Thibodeau’s decision.

But now it’s only superlatives from Thibodeau in judging the last four games.

“Sometimes it’s going to be his shooting, sometimes it’s his penetration and getting in the paint to force a collapse and sometimes they’re being aggressive with their traps get rid of the ball quickly,’’ Thibodeau said. “The overall play, his rebounding. When your guards rebound, those are key to fast breaks. The more guard rebounding we get the better we can be. ‘’

The Knicks still have three players in protocols — centers Nerlens Noel and Jericho Sims and the newly infected Wayne Selden. Quickley and Kevin Knox were cleared on Christmas but were held out for conditioning.

No matter. The Knicks go as Kemba goes.

“He’s much more aggressive,’’ Thibodeau said. “That was the challenge. At the beginning of the year he and Evan were two new starters. Sometimes guys are trying to fit in. he’s being very aggressive which is the way we want him to play. Not deferring at all. When he and Julius [Randle] are aggressive like that our team is different.’’

Bar raises dramatically for Zach Wilson in matchup with Tom Brady, Buccaneers

Published

on

By

Zach Wilson and Tom Brady

When Zach Wilson stares across the MetLife Stadium field at the opposite sideline this Sunday, it won’t be Trevor Lawrence he’ll be looking at as his game-day counterpart.

Lawrence, drafted by Jacksonville one spot before the Jets selected Wilson at No. 2 overall last April, is a contemporary.

This Sunday at MetLife, the Jets rookie quarterback won’t be staring at a contemporary on the other sideline. He’ll be staring at the GOAT.

Tom Brady.

The bar raises dramatically for Wilson and the Jets, who are coming off of their feel-good, get-well win over the woeful Jaguars and Lawrence this past Sunday.

Brady and Buccaneers, who are 11-4, NFC South division champions and seeking to repeat as Super Bowl champions, play the Jets, who are 4-11 and seeking more signs of development from their rookie quarterback.

To say this is a step up in competition for Wilson and the Jets going from Lawrence and the Jags to Brady and the Bucs is as obvious as pointing out that Tampa Bay receiver Antonio Brown has had a few off-the-field incidents during his otherwise stellar NFL career.

There hasn’t been a lot to keep the interest of the Jets fan this season — other than watching Wilson’s development. That took an unfortunate pause for the four games Wilson missed with a knee injury, but he’s been back for five games and has looked like a better quarterback, throwing only two interceptions in those games (none in the last three) since returning from his injury.

The problem, though, is that Wilson hasn’t been producing enough touchdowns, throwing for three of them and rushing for four others in the past five games.

Baby steps, though.

Wilson was the better quarterback this past Sunday when matched up with Lawrence, who threw for more yards than Wilson did, but Wilson ran for 91 yards, including his electric 52-yard scoring jaunt, and made key throws when he needed them.

Wilson will not win Sunday’s game against Brady and the Bucs throwing for the 102 yards he had against the Jaguars. He and the Jets will need more.

Consider this: Brady enters the game having thrown 37 TD passes and for 4,580 yards this season and averages a league-high 305.2 passing yards per game.

Then this: The Buccaneers average 29.5 points per game this season, second most in the NFL.

And this: Wilson doesn’t have a single 300-yard passing game, averages 183 passing yards per game and has thrown seven TD passes in 11 games.

Seven TD passes is a pedestrian two-game total for Brady.

Wilson and the Jets are playing with house money anyway in what always has been a developmental season, so Sunday against Brady should, at its very least, be a great measuring-stick learning experience for Wilson, who’s studied Brady on tape.

Wilson revealed this month that he watched film of Brady before the Jets played the Eagles on Dec. 5 in an effort to pick up tips on how Brady worked against the Eagles defense when he played them earlier in the season.

“I thought it was really cool to see kind of how he went through his whole process, how he navigated the pocket, different things like that,” Wilson said at the time.

On Sunday, Wilson gets to see that process up close as Brady tries to dissect a Jets defense that has yielded 29.9 points per game this season, the most in the NFL.

That puts an added onus on Wilson to produce on the other side of the ball, because he knows Brady is going to get his. Wilson will likely need to produce four TDs — any way he can — for the Jets to simply remain competitive with the Super Bowl champs.

That’s a lot to ask of a 22-year-old kid who’s produced just 11 TDs in his 11 starts, up against Brady, who’s thrown 618 TD passes and for 83,784 yards in his remarkable career.

It, too, is a lot to ask playing against an aggressive Tampa Bay defense that’s ranked No. 9 in the NFL in points allowed (20.8 per game) and is led by former Jets head coach Todd Bowles, who’d surely like to send a holiday message to his former employer.

If you don’t think Bowles will be blitzing the bejesus out of Wilson, then you probably think Antonio Brown is a living saint.

The good news for the Jets is that Wilson has shown incremental improvements, particularly when it comes to his decision-making and quicker releases on his throws.

“He’s coming along, he’s getting more comfortable, he’s calmer back there,’’ Jets coach Robert Saleh said Monday. “He’s in a great headspace and it’s going to be fun to watch him grow, continue to grow.’’

A big part of that growth will take place this Sunday as he watches the GOAT operate from the opposite sideline at MetLife.
