The Boar

From the K.I.S.S. Astrology Team
Copyright © 1996, 1997, 1998 by Rudy Flack


According to the Chinese Goro Calendar,
Edgar Rice Burroughs
Lord Greystoke
were both born under the sign of Horta, the Boar

Horta is a splendid companion but if you have a lifetime boar friend, don't think that your worries are over. Horta is loyal, faithful and giving - only as long as he approves of you. In order to keep your lifetime boar friend, remember, never try to force your opinions on him - boars rarely ask for help and cannot graciously accept it.

Horta doesn't say much - but when he does decide to speak, suddenly, nothing can stop him until he runs out of subjects. Like Mangani, he is intellectual - a character with a great thirst for knowledge. Boars are models of sincerity, purity, tolerance, and honor. When you first meet them, they seem too good to be true. They are careful and caring, obliging and chivalrous. Put your trust in Horta, he won't let you down and he will never try to. Horta simply wants to do everything right.

Boars are the people everyone admires most but they are very suspicious and never trust other people, preferring to make decisions without the advice of others. Forsaking the crowds which make them nervous, they enjoy a lonely and peaceful life.

A straightforward person, Horta can be very stubborn and intransigent. He despises hypocrisy and lies. Once he has made a decision, he follows through with plans without heeding the advice of others.

Some people claim that Boars are snobbish. Manners, breeding and good taste are of enormous importance to them. In fact, boars are aesthetic. They are born with an excellent nose for style in everything. Food is another of Horta's little sins. The Boar adores food, and after-dinner chocolates and grubs. He often over-eats, but he eats with good taste.

In relationships, Horta people are sensitive, sweet but naive, and caring. They are romantic and certainly are the marriage-type. But on the other hand, they are also possessive, jealous and exclusive. Boars are born to give, to yield and to serve. Frankly speaking, most people take advantage of this nature.  Boar people constantly sacrifice their own happiness and comfort for the sake of someone else.

Fellow Boar soulmates include: Ronald Reagan, Steven Spielberg, Woody Allen, Alfred Hitchcock, Julie Andrews, Stephen King, Val Kilmer, Minnie Driver, Billy Crystal, Tom Arnold, Emma Thompson, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Hillary Rodham Clinton,  Richard Dreyfuss,  Farrah Fawcett, Marie Osmond, Carlos Santana, Tracey Ullman, Phil Donahue, Luciano Pavarotti, Nastassja Kinski, Randy Travis, Rosanna Arquette, Elton John,  Ernest Hemingway, Humphrey Bogart, Lucille Ball, Ginger Rogers, Fred Astaire, Henry Kissinger, Oliver Cromwell, Samuel F. Morse, Noel Coward,  Ralph Waldo Emerson, Carl G. Jung, Henry Ford, the Dalai Lama, Presidents Thomas Jefferson, John Quincy Adams, Andrew Jackson and James Buchanan.

Philip Jose Farmer has determined the actual 
birth date of  John Clayton, Lord Greystoke, to be
November 22, 1888. 
If this is indeed the actual date of  Tarzan's birth, then he is an 
"Earth Child" and ... a Rat.
