SONA: WILL STARS FORETELL?
Whether President Jacob Zuma will consult a horoscope before delivering his state-of-the-nation address on Thursday evening is not known, but both his critics and supporters may well be hoping he does.
According to one Cape Town morning newspaper, those born, like Zuma, under the sign of Aries, are advised to "put on a bold front and pursue your worldly aspiration with full confidence in your ability to attain it".
South Africa's septuagenarian president, who turns 71 this year, was born on April 12, 1942.
Aries is the first astrological sign in the Zodiac.
The morning horoscope urges those born under the symbol of the ram to strive on Thursday to be "fully productive so as to put yourself across impressively".
It also adds: "With strong inner conviction, you cannot fail to succeed."
