Gemini of the Month: Angelina Jolie
Geminis are seldom boring. Angelina Jolie born June 4, 1975 is a good example of a Gemini personality. She is known for her off-beat characters—Lara Croft in Tomb Raider, Lisa in Girl Interrupted, and model Gia Carangi in Gia. This talented actress can be charming, courageous, and confused. Her fans never know what she will do next.
Her horoscope indicates acting ability with the Sun in Gemini and courage with the Moon in Aries. Venus, the planet of beauty, on her Ascendant is consistent with her glamorous Hollywood image. However, her Ascendant is in the home-loving sign of Cancer. At times her maternal nature may conflict with her Moon in Aries which loves to wander. No wonder she has two sides to her life—mother to six children and a career as a film maker and actress.
Fortunately her Moon in Aries is close to the lucky planet Jupiter which shows a sense of humor and a creativity. The two planets in trine aspect to Neptune in the fifth house indicate extraordinary success. However, she has quite a temper! It doesn’t take much to displease anyone with Mars on an Aries Moon.

Aries of the Month: Sir Elton John
Elton John born March 25, 1947 has always lived in the Aries fast lane — with a few speed bumps. He does not handle stress well with the sensitive planet, Neptune, opposite his Sun. At the height of his success in the 1980s, Elton John checked himself into a rehabilitation center to deal with his addiction to cocaine and alcohol. With all his ups and downs, fans remain loyal. Perhaps that is because his Venus (love) in Aquarius (sign of the masses) makes a trine to dynamic Uranus. Never was the singer more admired than when he sang “Candle in the Wind” at Princess Diana’s memorial. Since then he was raised millions for AIDS, one of the princess’s favorite charities. This generous Aries has his Moon in home-loving Taurus. His Mercury in Pisces indicates creativity and a sense of humor. Now in his seventies, he seems happiest to be home with David Furnis and their two sons Zachary and Elijah. Elton John, who has had a pacemaker, must watch his health this year - time to savor the good life.

Pisces of the Month: Edgar Cayce
Edgar Cayce was born on March 18, 1877. He was an American trance medium who answered questions on healing, astrology, reincarnation, Atlantis, and future events. During his lifetime, “the Sleeping Prophet” gave approximately 30,000 life-readings and medical diagnosis to people. He believed that astrology was a fact and that it is useful in understanding the road map of one's life. According to Edgar Cayce, the placement of the planets indicated past-life influences and planetary journeys.
Cayce’s sun in the mystical sign of Pisces in the eighth house of the occult definitely indicated a psychic nature. The Sun sextiling Pluto in Taurus in the tenth house of career showed he would be recognized for this unique talent. His Moon in Taurus gave him an easy-going nature, unless crossed - then Cayce could show a stubborn streak. His Moon conjunct Neptune in the ninth house of the higher mind and dreams gave him access to the world beyond through the trance state. Cayce’s chart is not without its flaws. His moon in Taurus makes a wide square to Uranus in the first house indicating a strong will and ego. However, Edgar Cayce worked hard to maintain a spiritual perspective. Disciplined by nature, he read the Bible each year of his life and placed great faith in his teachings.

Reagan is credited with decentralizing government. Of the three presidents, Lincoln is the most respected for his humility, honesty, and humanitarian policies.
Aquarius of the Month: Abraham Lincoln
Abraham Lincoln was born February 12, 1809 in Kentucky. He became a lawyer and a politician who served as the 16th president of the United States from 1861 until his assassination in April 1865. His Sun in Aquarius gave him an idealist nature, yet his Moon in practical Capricorn helped him to keep his feet on the ground. With his Moon (emotions) in Capricorn, he was prone to bouts of depression. Fortunately, he had Mars (energy) in the sign of the law, Libra, which indicates a passion for justice. However with a square to his Moon, justice would come at a great price.
Born with Mercury in the gentle sign of Pisces, he was kind and had a sense of humor. As Lincoln reminded us, “Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.” Lincoln also had a psychic side. Shortly before his death, he had dream in which there was a body lying in state in the White House. He demanded to know who it was. One of the soldiers answered "The President" was his answer; "he was killed by an assassin!"
While deeply affected by the dream, the President did not allow it to interfere with his duties. He was always forward-moving. Abraham Lincoln served during the worst of times in our nation, yet he remained hopeful about the future of the United States. Lincoln never wavered in his faith in people or America: “My dream is of a place and a time where America will once again be seen as the last best hope of earth.”
