Father Sun, Mother Moon (Part Three)

In my book, “Father Sun, Mother Moon: Astrology’s Dynamic Duo”, I describe each of the 144 possible combinations of the twelve Sun Sign and the twelve Moon Sign. In this series of articles I am presenting examples of some of these combinations.


Today I’m looking at Geminis, in particular the combination of the Sun in Gemini and the Moon in Aries. Our celebrity example is Russell Brand. (Click here to see a partial horoscope for Brand charted for noon.)


In “Father Sun, Mother Moon” I say of Sun sign Geminis “There is no creature rarer than a boring Gemini. The Gemini mind is always clicking, always ready to pick up on a new thread of thought and run with it. Typically, Geminis have a quick and sometime biting wit.” This is certainly true of Russell Brand. Throughout the many ups and downs of his career, Brand has been accused of many things. Being boring is not one of them.


I also say “But the best thing about Gemini people is that there is so much we can learn from them. Their voracious minds gather information form an incredible range of subjects . . .” In recent years Brand has morphed from being a stand-up comedian and occasional actor to being a vocal activist for a variety of political and social causes. He did this on his short-lived and controversial talk show, and he has continued to hold forth on important issues through social media and in a magazine column.


Of the combination of the Sun in Gemini and the Moon in Aries I write, “You are an intense thinker. Ideas spread through you mind like wildfire and you often find yourself acting on these ideas before you’ve had a chance to really consider their worth. For this reason you are prone to say and do things you later regret. It doesn’t help that when you say and do these regrettable things, you’re absolutely certain that you are right.”


This would explain some of Brand’s erratic behavior. Over the years he has had criminal charges lodged against him on various occasions. Many of these issues sprang from Brand losing his temper with paparazzi and interviewers.  Brand has also gotten in trouble with certain media outlets because of some his “off-the-cuff” remarks. Brand is obviously has some very serious and worthwhile thoughts, but he also prone to throw out ideas and opinions that would have better been left unsaid.


Do you have the Sun in Gemini with the Moon in Aries? Do you know someone who does? If so, what do you think of my analysis? We always welcome your comments.
