Did Houdini (26 March 1874) actually favor a bright red robe? I don't know, but he started his career as a child magician in red woolen stockings. He and Brody (14 April 1973) are both Aries; Brody has been obsessed him since childhood. Houdini edited a newspaper supplement called Red Magic printed entirely in red ink. The escape imagery is, of course, a reiteration of the birth experience, Aries being the first sign . . .
