Charming good looks and strong sex appeal – these are the qualities that kicked off Cher’s successful Hollywood career. Born May 20, 1946 as Cherilyn Sarkisian, this Taurus superstar was often referred to as the Goddess of Pop for vocal range. Aside from acting, Cher’s multifaceted talents earned her an Academy Award, Grammy Award, Emmy Award, and three Golden Globes, which are all rooted to the head strong and goal oriented nature of Taurus.
Cher’s early childhood was spent in El Centro, California with her truck driver father and model mother. At an early age, Cher experienced her first setback when her parents divorced. She was temporary placed in a foster home where she developed dyslexia. Although Cher’s life was a constant struggle at that time, she never stopped pursuing singing and acting career. Taurus is a sign of strength and perseverance amidst hard circumstances. With the help of her mother who paid for her singing lessons, Cher honed her talents while believing that she will be famous someday.
Cher shared a romantic relationship with actor Warren Beatty in 1960. They were a hot item due to their public display of affection. A natural lover, Taurus is extremely physical in expressing her love, and always wants to hug and be touched.
On early 1962, Cher met Sonny Bono, a charming man who was eleven years older than her, and was working for record producer Phil Spector at that time. The two became best friends and was inseparable. Taurus is regarded for loyalty and dependability towards friends and families. When someone has a problem or needs comforting, count on a Taurus to extend help and a shoulder to cry on. Their friendship developed into a romantic relationship, eventually marrying each other after a year.
Sonny and Cher collaborated in many hit songs and co-hosted The Sonny and Cher Comedy Hour. After being married at Mexico on 1964, the couple had their only child named Chastity Bono. Although the couple enjoyed great success in both TV and recordings, they divorced on 1975. Rumors circulated that the separation was caused by Cher’s tendency to become too possessive and demanding of Sonny’s attention, which are all common characteristics of a Taurus. The divorce caused a long term battle over the custody of their child and lead to the cancelation of their show.
