“Mutable signs (Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, Pisces), want to talk about everything. Cardinal signs (Aries, Libra, Cancer, Capricorn) want to run everything. Fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Scorpio, Aquarius) want to own everything…” -Fearless Astrology
My latest in the Star Crossed series is GEMINI NIGHT, and Fearless Astrology is the book Logan McRae is trying to use to change her life. It’s October, and Logan, an Aquarius, wants to be the teen astrologer for CRUSH, the national teen magazine where she interns on Fridays. Her editor says she has to prove herself by figuring out the chart of the Gemini who’s going to be one of the celebrity guests at the mag’s launch party on Halloween night. There are plenty of suspects scheduled to attend the big event. A hot teen celebrity chef, a fashion designer known as The Platinum Dragon, and a spiraling blond rock star. When Logan figures out the mystery guest’s chart, she sees danger, not only for the Gemini, but for herself as well. But it’s too late to stop the party and not that easy identifying the enemy, since everyone, including Logan, is in costume.
Q. What are some positive Gemini traits, and some not-so-positive ones?
A. We Gems are chatty creatures. We’re ruled by Mercury, the messenger. According to my book, we are, “Strong communicators, versatile, generous, fickle, scattered and nervous.” We value intellect.
But, remember, your Sun sign is not the sum of who you are.
Q. So you don’t need a Gemini Sun sign to have some of these traits?
A. Not at all. You could have Gemini anywhere. If you aren’t sure how to figure your chart, don’t pay anyone to tell you. Visit a free astrology site, such as hazeldixoncooper.com, or just do an online search for “free astrology charts.” If you have Gemini in Mercury, for instance, you’ll be more talkative, even if you are a think-before-you-speak Taurus.
Q. Who is the best romantic partner for a Gemini?
A. Probably another Air sign. Gemini, Libra and Aquarius are Air signs. They are communicators. Aries, Leo and Sagittarius are Fire signs. They are the ones who are noticed first, regardless of whether or not they can deliver what they promise. Earth signs are Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn. They are more grounded, sometimes too much so for their own good. Water signs are Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces—driven by emotion, dreams and their connection to their pasts.
So, right about now, you’re saying, “I know two Leos who were born on the same day, and they’re so not like each other.” No, they’re not, because one Leo might have a Sagittarius Moon, which would make him even more talkative and outgoing, and one might have a Scorpio Moon, which would make her more brooding and secretive. This is fascinating stuff. I love it.
I was born on June 1, as was Marilyn Monroe, and I loved exploring the Gemini characters in this book. Other Gems include: Morgan Freeman, Bob Dylan, Patti Labelle, Annette Benning, Angelina Jolie, Kevin McHale, Chris Colfer, Shia LaBeouf, Carey Mulligan, Chris Evans, Zoe Saldana, Zachary Quinto, Natalie Portman, Johnny Depp, and probably someone in your life.
