June 20, Nicole Kidman, Gemini Intersection Painting
Gemini is an air sign and people of the air element are about intellect and communication, and this is why in my painting, Nicole is blowing bubbles.
One intellectual game played, is that of the Hollywood game, but when you look at Nicole Kidman’s career as an actor in Hollywood, you can see how well, she played that game:
In 1990, Nicole came to Hollywood from Australia, to star with Tom Cruise (who is a crabby Gemini, something I write about later) in “Days of Thunder”, in real life, they fell in love and were married by the end of 1990. Eleven years went by and Tom filed for divorce, instead of bleating and crying, Nicole continued her career as an actress and won an Oscar as the best actress in 2002, for the movie The Hours (2002), something Tom himself has not won and would love to, in 2006 and 2018 Nicole was the highest paid actress in Hollywood.
June 21, Edward Snowden, Gemini Intersection Painting
The Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) plays an even more intellectual game, and yet Edward Weston, Nicole’s “twin” in my painting, snuck out highly classified information, from the National Security Agency (NSA), when he was a CIA employee. His disclosures made world leaders and the general public think more about national security and individual privacy, and even though the United States, would send him to jail for over thirty years, some people think Edward’s a hero and in 2013 he became an exile in Russia.
I don’t know if you won that intellectual game, Mr. Snowden!

June 22-July 20, Crabby Geminis: Cancer/Gemini
People who have birthdays from June 22 to July 20 , think they are the Water Sign, Cancer, but in fact they are the Air Sign, Gemini. This is due to the fact of the Earth’s 26,000 year precession cycle, which changes the way we see the stars from June 22 to July 20.
Here are some of my favorite people as well as famous ones, who are Crabby Geminis!
By the way, some these people became crabby, when they found out they may be Geminis!
