Jeff Zimmerman was born on August 9th, 1972 under the commanding fire
sign Leo, known for pride, generosity, warmth, and powerful
leadership qualities. A mighty need for recognition drives the
King of the Zodiac, enabling Jeff to tackle difficult projects
and reach great heights. Self-discipline and perseverance have
helped him earn a Master’s Degree in Business.
Jeff craves adventure and doesn’t allow others’
expectations to dictate. He flourishes in an unstructured environment,
responding to the needs of the moment. Well-suited to fast-pace,
the life of a closer makes for heightened drama—another
Leo attribute. Jeff’s extremely competitive nature is
perfectly played out on the baseball diamond. Strong ego propels
him to be #1. When life is viewed as competitive sport, it’s
difficult to take orders or stay in the background. With Mars
in zestful Leo, he’s one proud peacock, striving to excel.
Bolstered by a healthy belief in himself and an enterprising
spirit, his confidence runs strong. Jeff aims high and is never
satisfied until goals are achieved in a big way. His favorite
player growing up was Nolan Ryan.
Jeff approaches life with intensity, strength of focus, and
psychological stamina. Complicated and private, he shows either
cool remoteness or great emotional passion. Currently experiencing
his Saturn return—a momentous astrological rite of passage
that occurs at age 29-30—look for a culmination of ambition
and new beginnings. Last season, leading the team with 28 saves,
he was named Ranger Pitcher of theYear. In a remarkable second
half, he converted his final 17 save chances, holding opponents
to a paltry .118 batting average. He’s also the third
Canadian to earn 20 saves in one season. Deceptive with delivery,
he has a good fastball, but it’s his slider that’s
tremendous! Fearless, he goes after hitters, striking out both
righties and lefties. Thriving on pressure, he’s a tough
challenger who won’t back down in life or on the mound.
True to his name, fellow Leo Mike Lamb is a lion with a bit
more lamb. Born on the same day as Jeff, but three years later—on
August 9, 1975—Mike has a much more mellow roar! Considerably
shyer than your average Leo, with several planets in humble
Virgo, an inborn streak of perfectionism permeates his being.
Well organized, he prefers to map out life one step at a time,
gathering experience and companionship from all walks of life.
A regular routine, with clearly defined responsibility, is
crucial to Mike’s success. It’s easy for him to
see the big picture. Interested in concrete results and practical
achievements, stamina and persistence are his greatest strengths.
Self-discipline comes naturally. Willing to work hard to meet
objectives, he instinctively realizes that achievement is “10%
inspiration, 90% perspiration.” The joy of competing runs
deep in Mike’s conscientious soul. An independent, the
more he relies on himself the better. A meaningful life lesson
is belief in ability, while refraining from comparison to others.
With Mars in Taurus, he’s quite stubborn when opposed,
and battles for position. Motivated by strong Saturn aspects—the
cosmic cop of the zodiac—ambition is an overwhelming motivation.
It fortifies Mike’s ability to confront challenges head
on. Starting 76 games at the hot corner last year, he can hit
for a high average. Though he led the Rangers with an impressive
.364 with runners in scoring position, fans can look forward
to ever-greater successes from determined Mike Lamb.
