StarScoop: Taryn Manning is an electric and powerful actress born on Nov. 6, 1978. Although she has been a singer-songwriter and actress for at least a quarter-century, her performance in “Orange Is the New Black” is what brought her to my attention. She’s an amazing actress, yes; but she’s also playing the part of someone she has probably come face-to-face with in real life.

Manning is a Scorpio with an unpredictable temperament. She can be charming and playful, but never underestimate the Scorpio that lurks inside. Her chart suggests that she is impulsive and experiences highs and lows that at times are difficult for her to control.

What I truly love about Manning is her vulnerability both on-camera and off. She has made it, but she still can’t quite grasp how far she has come in an industry that is so difficult to break into.

Her fight to win the battle with sobriety has been difficult over the past several years with the transits she has had moving through her chart. The very planetary movements that have helped her career skyrocket also have caused her personal grief.

Taryn’s chart indicates she will always face altercations and that she doesn’t do well when dealing with authority, but she is a fighter mentally, physically and spiritually. Here’s hoping she can win the battles she faces inwardly and outwardly.

ARIES (March 21-April 19): Use your imagination and look for creative opportunities. Love and romance are on the rise. Passionate gestures will support positive personal plans and greater happiness.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20): Partnerships, business travel and professional opportunities are apparent. Gather information, update your portfolio, and engage in talks and negotiations. Partnerships will lead to diversity as well as superior achievements.

GEMINI (May 21-June 20): Initiate changes you want to make or see happen. A dominant attitude will persuade others to pitch in and help. Trust in what you know, not what others imply.

CANCER (June 21-July 22): Letting go of emotional baggage will encourage you to do things your way and to create your own happiness. The more confident you are, the more popular you will become.
