Earlier this year, the people-who-have-nothing-better-to-do raised a ruckus about 4-year-old Shiloh Jolie-Pitt dressing like a boy. Apparently she likes short hair, boys’ neckties, jackets and hats. Mon dieu! In a Vanity Fair article, mom Angelina Jolie admitted yes, her kid “dresses like a little dude,” and later elaborated for Reuters: “I think she (Shiloh) is fascinating, the choices she is making. And I would never be the kind of parent to force somebody to be something they are not. I think that is just bad parenting.” Jolie added that “Shiloh’s hysterically funny, one of the goofiest, most playful people you’ll ever meet.”
A peak at Shiloh’s chart might make all of us wish we had a mom as perceptive as Jolie. Shiloh has Sun, Moon and Mercury in Gemini, the sign of the clown. And her girlie planet Venus is in masculine Aries: why not dress like a little dude?!
I bring this up now because the Aquarius Full Moon is a perfect time to take another look at your own chart and celebrate its special oddities. Be Angelina Jolie to your own little Shiloh and affirm what’s special about you. Especially since Mars will soon be marching into the territory of the Cardinal Cross–from July 30 through August 3–and the Moon will activate the Cross on August 6/7. These are good days to love yourself. No matter what the tabloids are saying about you.
