It’s ironic that the 24-hour-news pundits think Gov. Mark Sanford talks too much, as I’ve had the same thought about them many times. I’m not nearly as interested in politicians’ love lives as the news outlets think I am. Even so, I find it refreshing that Sanford–a chatty Gemini Sun with an emotional Cancer Moon–keeps talking about his feelings, how he’s met his soulmate, that he’s crossed the line before, that he hopes to fall back in love again with his wife. Sanford also has Mercury and Venus in Gemini. He reminds me of a few Venus-in-Geminis I know. Each has confessed with endearing honesty how difficult it is to settle their fluttering hearts on just one partner. This is a Venus who loves to love. She’s curious, flirtatious, and drawn to shiny new experiences. Why trap her in the cage everyone else lives in? Why insist that a Mercury in Gemini shut up and be dishonest like the rest of the politicians? Oh to live in a world that delighted in the varied flavors of the zodiac instead of condemning them!
