Most scientists believe that life on Earth arose as a result of millions of years of random interactions, accidents, and happenstance. Thus, it appears that God is a Gemini.
The symbol for Gemini is The Twins. That leads many people to think Geminis have split personalities. This is an unfair characterization: most twins are able to agree on things and function together better than a lot of Geminis can. Gemini is the sign most likely to be told that they are over-thinking things. This is because they have a remarkable gift for seeing several sides of an issue at once, even if in fact there aren’t any other sides. And often, Gemini is able to resolve and/or encompass contradictions better than most people. The primly dressed woman in the choir at church with the inverted pentagram tattoo on her ankle is probably a Gemini.
Geminis are prone to fidgeting, restlessness, nervousness, and biting their nails… interspersed with periods of quiet thoughtfulness, calm, and biting other people’s nails. Telling a Gemini to “settle down” is a little like telling a peacock to stop showing off. Geminis are often popular — the life of the party. If all of life were a party, Geminis would likely rule the world. As it stands though, most Geminis are barely able to rule themselves, let alone anyone else.
They make for gifted speakers, interesting teachers, and notorious swingers. They can be highly diplomatic when they put their minds to it, largely because they’ve had a lot of practice at thinking about which excuse for their behavior to present first.

Book Except: Sun In Taurus

Have you ever been half starved and had to wait in line at a fast food place while three people in front of you slowly deliberate over their very large orders? That line in front of you was Taurus.
Taurus isn’t really greedy, gluttonous, covetous or jealous. It’s just that they truly love money, material possessions, eating, and keeping all their stuff. Taurus is represented by the Bull, which is far and away the slowest and meatiest of the Zodiac symbols. In geometry, a “torus” is a doughnut shape, which is entirely appropriate for Taurus. Tauruses love fried food, especially if someone else paid for it. Although Tauruses are big spenders, they also like to save. This central paradox leads many Tauruses to go broke by purchasing things on sale.
Tauruses are excellent at saving energy, which they do by moving slowly. They have a reputation for being sexy and sensuous, which is generally true — of course; things usually look more sexy and sensuous when they’re filmed in slow motion. Taurus likes to deliberate a lot before they make an important decision, and they like to have a lot of options to deliberate over. If you were re-inventing the Zodiac today, instead of a bull, you wouldn’t be too far off making Taurus the Buffet Table. Taurus people like to own pretty things, and they like to be pretty things. Almost any Taurus has too much of something in their lives (by other peoples standards), whether it be purses, Green Lantern action figures, lovers, or belly fat.

Book Excerpt: Sun In Aries

Some astrologers will tell you that the Zodiac starts with Aries because in the Northern Hemisphere, the first day of spring is also the first day of Aries. The truth is that Aries comes first simply because Aries is too impatient to wait.
If you’ve ever had to baby-sit a hyperactive child whose parents slipped the little darling some sugar before they left for the evening, you’re familiar with how Aries energy works. Aries loves a challenge, and if they can’t find one, they can usually be counted on to create one. The symbol for Aries is The Ram, long noted for its determination, strength, and fondness for head-butting.
Aries enjoys starting things up: relationships, projects, and chain saws are all favorites. It often doesn’t have the same energy for following through on things. This quality can make an Aries highly entertaining to watch and highly frustrating if you’re their friend, co-worker, or the neighbor’s tree hanging over Aries’ driveway. The best advice you can usually give an Aries is to calm down, take it easy, and think things through. This often provokes their temper. Aries isn’t necessarily a dangerously temperamental sign, but an Aries is usually at least mildly annoyed about something or other, on some level, at any given point.
