The birthday girl for June 20 is Nicole Kidman.
Now if there’s one thing I like about Nicole Kidman it’s how much she gets around within the world of fashion. Unlike a lot of actresses who collaborate with a particular designer, Kidman will try anything once. She’s had her fair share of red carpet disasters, but she’s also had plenty of red carpet triumphs.
Kidman embodies the spirit of fashion with her unpredictable choices. Her personal style is a little indistinct as a result, but I can’t fault her for that. She’s a Gemini, after all!
The birthday girl for June 19 is Zoe Saldana.
Saldana is one of those personalities that the fashion pack seems to salivate over. I remember seeing her one night on a red carpet in a horrible dress that was so poorly-made that is was puckering at every seam, and then reading glowing reviews of the look the next morning on media sites that I usually trust for fashion advice. The verdict from the public-at-large, however, was exactly the opposite; they hated the look as much as I hated the look.
Now that probably has something to do with her sun sign. In my book, I mention that the spirit of fashion is reflected in the sign of Gemini. As a Capricorn, I don’t have a natural affinity with the capricious nature of fashion or the Mercurial nature of Gemini. Perhaps that’s why I don’t believe that Saldana is particularly stylish. In fact, I have a difficult time pinning a style to her.
And that’s the way it should be. Gemini natives shouldn’t be rigidly defined. Neither should fashion, for that matter. I might be a Capricorn, but even I would be bored if everyone shared my definition of personal style.
The birthday boy for June 18 is Blake Shelton.
Shelton is a funny guy. He’s very upfront and lacking in pretense. In that respect, he is an ideal example of many of the qualities of his sun sign. What interests me most about the singer is that he sits on the judges’ panel of “The Voice” with another Gemini, a Sagittarius and a Pisces native — all mutable signs.
It’s surprising that anyone can make a decision on the show! It’s no surprise, however, that the decisions made are often capricious and difficult for both the audience and the contestants to understand. I wouldn’t want my fate to be in the hands of a panel of mutable personalities. Just one reality-show judge with a mutable sun-sign is enough. If you don’t belive me, just watch an episode of “Celebrity Apprentice.”
The birthday boy for June 17 is Newt Gingrich.
I keep mentioning that Gemini natives have a what-you-see-is-what-you-get quality. They’re like a reality show contest who attempts to explain their lack of tact by claiming that they’re just “keeping it real.”
I normally associate the sign of Sagittarius with bad manners because their natural exuberance can come off as impolite in many social situations where self-control is considered to be a more appropriate response. Gemini individuals, however, can have terrible manners simply because they rarely pretend to be anything that they’re not. I know a lot of people hate Newt Gingrich for a lot of different reasons, but I do see him as a rather upfront individual. I don’t believe that he’s trying to sell himself as anything but Newt Gingrich — warts and all. In that respect, he does seem like a textbook Gemini to me.
The birthday boy for June 16 is Tupac Shakur.
It just occured to me that both Tupac and Biggie Smalls were Geminis. I’ve been pondering the prevalence of Gemini natives in the upper echelons of women’s professional tennis. Now I want to study the relationship between being a famous Gemini rapper and getting murdered.
So many projects; so little time.
The birthday girl for June 15 is Xaviera Hollander.
Hollander is the most famous prostitute of the 20th century. As Gemini is the sign of communication, it’s no surprise that the hooker who wrote the book “The Happy Hooker” possesses that sun sign.
It’s also interesting to note that the most famous madam of the same era is a Capricorn: Heidi Fleiss. A Gemini literally wrote the book about whoring, and a Capricorn “wrote the book” about how to make money off of whores. Go figure!
The birthday girl for June 14 is Diablo Cody.
I don’t know much about the screenwriter, but I do know that the character that Charlize Theron portrayed in “Young Adult” had a definite Gemini vibe to her.
Geminis usually don’t want to grow up, and many of them never do. When we see a character stunted in development like Mavis in “Young Adult,” what offends us most is that they can be rotten and immature while still functioning in an adult world at a near-normal level. It makes a grown person like me wondering if I’ve missed all the fun in life because I’ve bothered to grow up. I found myself rooting for Mavis in the film, and my favorite scene of the movie was when she was convinced that her problems with everyone else were their problems. Oh, to be blissfully unaware!
I wonder how autobiographical the role was supposed to be. Now that I know that Cody is a Gemini, I suspect that there is more than just a little bit of her in Mavis.
