Tom Jones
by Barney Battles
Some people are just born performers, and Tom Jones is a particularly notable case. Since the 1960s the Welsh singer has thrilled audiences around the world, and continues to perform now into his seventh decade.

Thomas John Woodward was born in South Wales on 7th June 1940, making him, rather suitably, a Dragon in Chinese astrology. Under the western zodiac he is a Gemini.

Geminis are known for their remarkable abilities to communicate with others, and are famously good talkers – traits perfect for the showbusiness career that Jones would throw himself into whole-heartedly.

Born for showbiz?

As a child, the young Tom Jones disliked school, possibly in a large part due to the dyslexia from which he suffered. But he did take a shine to singing, and regularly performed in the school choir and at special occasions. His singing would be the key to building his confidence, while the Gemini traits of wit and eloquence earned him respect amongst his peers.

After performing in welsh bands, Jones’ illustrious solo career well and truly took off in 1965 when his now famous single ‘It’s not Unusual’ rocketed its way to the top of the UK charts. He became known for his energetic and vigorous style, hallmarks of the Gemini personality, and soon gained the respect and adoration of fans throughout the world.

Geminis are naturally gifted performers armed with wit and charisma, and they generally experience no difficulties in capturing the attention of their audience.

In the five decades that Jones’ career spans, the singer has seldom been content to simply dominate one genre of music, instead constantly reinventing his style and experimenting with diverse genres, from rock n’ roll and country to pop and gospel. In light of the inquisitive nature of many Gemini’s, this exploration of different styles seems only natural.

Enter the Welsh dragon

Those born under the Chinese year of the Dragon are renowned for their boundless energy and strong personalities, and despite an occasional predisposition towards arrogance, their confidence often earns them many fans. Dragon’s are great believers in proactively pursuing every challenge and often accomplish many great things in their lives. As a typically tenacious Welsh dragon, Tom Jones is a perfect example of this.

This seemingly limitless supply of confidence and charisma can sometimes lead to a dragon’s downfall, but Jones seems to have found a balance that has ensured his longevity and continued popularity.

As a Metal Dragon Jones is predisposed towards competitiveness, and this trait has certainly benefited him in a career that has outlived those of virtually all of his showbusiness peers.

Both dragons and Geminis are known for their youthfulness, with Gemini being linked to Mercury, the planet of youth. These twin influences may be instrumental to the crooner’s continued success and youthful appeal even now at the age of 71.

Love life of a sixties sex symbol

Geminis however are immensely aware of their own attractiveness, and may be prone to infidelities while in relationships and other moral slip ups. Tom Jones appears to be no different, with a number of high profile affairs in his past. Despite these indiscretions though, he remains wedded to his childhood sweetheart, whom he married in 1957.

Tom Jones may be seen as an embodiment of the determination, talent and charisma of both Geminis and Dragons, and by the looks of it, his success and popularity is far from waning. Provided that he keeps his ego in check and overcomes the Metal Dragon’s inability to be flexible, it doesn’t seem unusual that we may continue to hear from the timeless crooner for at least another decade.
