The only place a Gemini woman feels really happy is when she’s centre stage.  Not a bit to the right, nor to the left, but bang centre where everyone can see her, or to be more precise, where everyone can hear her.

Whether it’s entertaining friends at a party, cutting a dash on the red carpet or captivating an audience at Wembley, these ladies love the limelight.

But who can resist their charms?

Witty, clever and more sparkling than a glass of Moët, they cast a spell quicker than Harry Potter, drawing you closer with each fascinating revelation.

For one thing is certain, Geminis love to talk.  About themselves, about other people, about anything, just so long as someone is listening.

It’s not that they want to hog the conversation, it’s just everyone else is so boring!

For a Gemini woman has an exceedingly low boredom threshold and unless you can stimulate her razor-sharp mind you will be dismissed with a yawn.

Peter Pan by nature, they surround themselves with like-minded people to whom age is but a number.  This applies even more to romantic partners who must at all times be amusing, entertaining and never act their age, no matter how young.

To win the affection of a Gemini you must be all these things and also broad-minded enough to relish the prospect of a threesome.

The twins of the zodiac, Geminis are quite simply two people in one.  Blissfully happy one minute, tragically distraught the next.  The life and soul of the party who suddenly gives way to inexplicable melancholy which even they don’t understand.

Naturally, this behaviour can be most disconcerting for anyone in love with a Gemini.

One minute your lover is warm and tender and you feel sure of her love.  Five minutes later she is cross and grumpy, finding fault with everything you do. This coupled with the fact that Geminis don’t like to discuss their feelings, being ruled by their heads rather than their hearts doesn’t make life any easier.

Is it any wonder most men think they are too difficult to figure out?

Not that the Gemini woman will waste time on a relationship that’s going nowhere. Sensing anything less than devotion from a partner, she will change course quicker than a speedboat in a force ten gale, confident in the belief that the next relationship will be the perfect one.

For a Gemini woman needs a very special partner.

Not only must he be interesting and hold strong opinions of his own, he should be interested in hers, even if they are very different from his own.  Rather than being frustrated by the Gemini’s mood swings he must embrace them and enjoy the ever-changing landscape of her personality.  Confident, assertive and capable, he should be able to intellectually challenge this most complex of signs whilst providing the strength and reassurance she requires when dark moods prevail.

Whoever can do this will be well rewarded for a Gemini woman makes a charming companion, who will amuse and entertain until her last breath, seemingly getting younger with each passing year until you are left with an eighteen year old trapped in the body of an eighty year old.

So where does happiness lie for the Gemini woman?

An air sign, Gemini can’t possibly breathe under water so that rules out Cancer, Pisces and Scorpio who will all be too emotional and suffocating for this free spirit.

The earth signs of Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn could bring this floating sign down to earth, but at what a cost – boredom, tedium and daily monotony, all of which are fatal to the spontaneous, fun-loving Gemini.

The exciting fire signs of Aries, Leo and Sagittarius know how to catch the Gemini’s attention and this pairing can work out quite nicely, just so long as the fire sign doesn’t make the mistake of trying to control the willful Gemini.

The natural partner for a Gemini is another air sign.  Aquarius will provide the intellectual challenge required while Libra will be happy to accommodate Gemini’s ever changing agenda.

On the surface, a fellow Gemini would appear to be the ideal match, always witty and amusing, never growing old, but what about their dual personalities?

After all, it’s one thing to have three people in a relationship, but to have four is almost indecent.

The Lion King


There’s no escaping the fact that the astrological sign of Leo, represented by the lion, has produced some of the world’s foremost leaders.

John F. Kennedy, Napoleon Bonaparte, Benito Mussolini, Barak Obama and Fidel Castro to name but a few. An illustrious club that has just recruited its latest member, Alexis Tsipras, the new Greek Prime Minister, a Leo born on 28th July.

Natural born leaders, Leo’s animal magnetism draws followers who are attracted by their strong, confident personalities and charming, outgoing manner.

They inspire confidence with their sparkling charisma while determinedly pursuing their own grand ambitions regardless of any obstacles thrown in their path. For Leo’s tolerate neither criticism nor censure and in response to the order “you can’t”, the lion roars, “just watch me”.

Not that anyone would be so foolish as to upset the king of the jungle with his fearsome reputation.

As the Nigerian proverb sums it up, “the lion’s power lies in our fear of him.”

A fire sign, Leo manifests all the qualities of the element itself as people gather round attracted by the dazzling conflagration, nervously excited when sparks begin to fly. Fascinating and fast moving, the Leo holds his audience captivate with warm words and reassuring promises.

But don’t stand too close, for fires have a habit of getting out of control.

Once ignited their power is immense and almost impossible to extinguish with the potential to destroy everything in their path.

Fuelled by their own self confidence, Leo’s sometimes finds it hard to know when enough is enough. It’s pointless trying to tell one he is wrong; not only would he not believe you, but he wouldn’t have been listening to you in the first place.

Hard to imagine of a sign that exudes such charm and grace, but this big cat is not the timid kind and anyone who thinks they can exert any control over him at the end of a big stick should think again. Claws will be bared and the lion will come out fighting. A gloved hand and a gentle touch is the only way to tame this particular tabby.

A point worth remembering by those who will have to deal with Alexis Tsipras.

Another African proverb gives a timely warning on the subject.

“A woman without teeth shall be left to the lions.”

Let’s just hope when the German Chancellor, Angela Merkel first meets her new Greek counterpart, she hasn’t missed any dental appointments.

Stephen Fry finds an Ideal Husband

Stephen Fry Wedding

Whenever a Virgoan and a Taurean fall in love not only do the angels weep for joy, but the musical ones who play the harps and lutes excitedly compose wedding music for the impending nuptials.

And so it was when Stephen Fry, a Virgoan born on 24th August and Elliott Spencer, a Taurean born on 1st May found themselves targeted by Eros and his trusty bow.

Taurus is immediately attracted to Virgo’s quick wit and sharp mind while the reserved Virgo admires Taurus’ strength and confidence.

Sharing similar values and goals they complement one another perfectly as the caring Virgoan gently guides and encourages his partner while the calming Taurean soothes the fretful Virgoan and stops him indulging in his favourite pastime – worrying.

For one thing is certain: Virgos love to worry. It’s not that they want to worry it’s they just can’t help themselves. Taurus on the other hand sees no point in wasting time on this negative emotion and will quickly pull their partner up with words of reassurance and encouragement.

For this is truly an old fashioned romance with the essential ingredients to ensure it lasts.  This pair instinctively understands and encourages each other and as well as being well-suited partners they are also best friends.  Simply put, they are soulmates.

The Spanish call a soulmate your “media naranja” or “half an orange”.

So rejoice! Having located your missing segments you can venture forth together into the big bad world and celebrate like a sun-kissed satsuma.

But this love is not blind.  It’s a relationship with its eyes wide open.

The perceptive Virgoan can smell a rat a mile away and not even the most audacious charlatan would attempt to deceive this master of intuition. Not that the Taurean would even try; for duplicity is not his way. Plain-speaking and upfront, he is open and honest about his feelings and just as the Virgoan with his x-ray vision can see through any situation, the sensitive Taurean can read his partner like a book, knowing how to cool the Virgoan’s fevered brow when temperatures rise.

The Taurean relaxes the anxious Virgoan, encouraging him to explore his own passionate nature that is concealed behind his cool, calm exterior.

In return, the thoughtful Virgoan is quick to respond when dark clouds gather around the normally sunny Taurean and with a few well-chosen words and an invitation to share in an epicurean adventure, harmony is restored and a jolly good time is had by all.

There’s quite simply no stopping this relationship.  It’s like a runaway train (most likely the Orient Express, as both these signs love luxury) and all the wide-eyed travelers standing on the platform can do is cheer excitedly as the locomotive whizzes past filling them with hope that they too will someday find their “half an orange”.
