The Gemini Taurus-Hater

Joan Collins in the Sixties

“…The photo shoot over, Collins comes over to a window table to talk. She shakes my hand, grins vaguely and slides into a chair. ‘You don’t mind if I eat,’ she says (not a question, a command), and starts picking at some smoked salmon and brown bread, and sipping at cups of coffee (‘White, one sugar, please!’).

Whatever she says, Collins is very grand, but she can also be endearingly playful, even slightly spacey. Quite early on in the interview, she blurts out, out of the blue, ‘Are you Gemini?’ No, Taurus. ‘Oh,’ she says, looking glum. ‘It’s not on my wavelength of people – I don’t mean that rudely.’

And then she gives me a look as if to say, ‘Poor you, being Taurus,’ and pops another bit of salmon into her mouth, while I sit there feeling like the last puppy left in the shop window at Christmas….”

hmmm…. this all makes me think back to the recent major merde fall out I had with my Gem best friend. Are Taureans and Geminis fundamentally incompatible? I hope not because I love ’em (but that’s prob my Gem venus and eros). I have all these fantasies about laughing and talking (and sleeping and eating) with the man of my dreams (twin man funny like Mike Myers sexy like Wentworth Miller) ’til I’m old and wrinkly but if they have the same allergic reaction as Joan I may have to consider projecting my fantasies onto other sign(s)….. Any suggestions?

a Sag or Gem with planets in an earth sign. I would look at guy’s moon and venus. I wouldn’t give up on any sign. One must look at the whole chart. Wentworth Miller is HOT! πŸ™‚

wahwahweewah πŸ˜† I just googled him to confirm gay rumours and found this quote: “No, I’m not gay. I know these rumours are out there.I’m cool with the fact that they exist, I mean this is about fantasy. Certain people are going to have certain fantasies. If someone wants to imagine me with a woman, or a man or one of each, that’s cool with me as long as you keep watching the show.” One of each hey? Cheers for the image Wentworth. Btw thanks for the info re Sag with planets in earth signs. Coincidentaly I also just found… Read more »

Jackie – the queen of LA pulp fiction – with world titles like Hollywood Wives, Hollywood Husbands, Divorce, Rockstar etc were my fodder in final year of school. Day prior to final english exam twasnt Emily Bronte in my hand. Was Jackie. Really. & scored few points below 100 in final mark – go figure. Anyways I cant comment on MY first hand info on her here – but compare: Jackie’s 20 or so paperbacks with Joan’s 700 films. Ok she’s had 400 million paperbacks to fund her LA wifestyle… Soz Savannah – I do have tales, but here’s not… Read more »

sorry for shouting – WE LOOOOVE JOAN!! SHE ROCKS!! on previous reply (80’s fashion) I flagged 80’s-couture – my 21st frock. themed ‘black tie, dallas & diamonds’ – an ode to soap addictions at the time – DALLAS & DYNYSTY. The hangover from private schooling obviously prevailed thru Uni. The Leo Socialite – she IS icon. Is it safe to fess up here? Few years ago, Joan came to OZ for a book tour. A ‘literary dinner’ in the Regent Ballroom hosted by (wait for it) – Bill Collins. FYI International blog devotees – a nationally known aging film critic… Read more »

Joan Collins was incredibly beautiful when young, and quite the serious actor, worked with some big stars. Then got caught up in the 70’s LA scene and it all went glitzy and over the top. She was engaged to Warren Beatty I think ?

Wouldn’t have thought ol’ Joan would have been into astrology.

I used to think the same way long ago about Scorpio’s & Pisces but my 2 of my good friends are just that, the other a Leo.

Not that it completely matters, but has ANYONE seen her without make up? I haven’t and was always curious.

And for some odd reason I always thought Eva Longoria is like a dark version of her. I don’t actually remember much of Dynasty except that there were mega shoulder pads and she hated Linda Evans’ character.

In any case, I’ve never met any Taurus who ever was a “poor you”, they much too luxe to bother caring or at least come off that way.

the bitch fight where Joan & Linda Evans fight & one of them ends up in the fountain was epic – cant find it now but try this if you want an 80’s inspired giggle:

Tres funny. I have the same issue with Geminis. I don’t know why. I just hear someone’s a Gem and I kinda sink a little – “oh well, we won’t get along.” And with Scorps, I immediately tense up a little and think “watch what I say. They’ll remember…”

Paranoid Cap that I am… Oddly, I really don’t get along with other Caps. I think I’m intimidated? They know too much? They’re hard to impress? Lucky I’m a Libra rising. I like Librans. Another mystery to me.

I feel like that with Librans (apart from only one) and cancer women. I don’t know why. But I think these comments come from personal experience as may be the case with JC. She’s too old for me to be familiar with her work ‘back in the day’ but i wouldn’t mind having a chat with her one day just to learn more about her. due to their matching hairtyles and refusal to move on from 1980s makeup application style, I always get her confused with trashy romance novel writer Jackie Collins, and that other lady with the big hair/lips/attitude… Read more »

replying to myself AGAIN, i think it’s the diplomacy of librans that confounds me. I don’t know how i’ve changed – i can be most polite /temperate/diplomatic. But i’ve noticed that the diplomacy switch is on …all the time. So you can’t cut loose with invective or general insanity (among close friends only, of course) without getting sideways looks and a slight wrinkling of the nose. *Most* unsupportive of clowning around…Hurts i tells ya. If anyone can provide opposing evidence, please do…

scorpalicious robot

OH and i totally agree with you re Librans with their permanent diplomacy switch. The one i work with even had the nerve to suggest I say something in a more moderate tone (she said this in a very light-hearted diplomatic way of course). I broke a freakin’ finger nail and couldn’t help but squeal or shriek or whatever else i did to offend her so. Who could be bothered censoring/filtering every emotions or reaction…. infuriating!!!

sisters! really? hahaha well that explains a lot! Goes to show how much I pay attention πŸ™‚ I bet they’d be fun to have over for dinner though, along with Joan Rivers (although I’d be terrified of her acidic comebacks and I would probably let loose with a few giant faux-pas myself, lol)

I’m a gemini, I see people do that sinking thing all the time. Really, we aren’t that scary.
And of course I would defend Ms Collins here and say she never said anything about hating, just not connecting.
Completely different things.
Oh the intricacies of our statements are so often misunderstood! (Leos seem to be my bane)

The Leo Socialite

I love, love LOVE the picture. She can hate whatever sign she likes, she is an icon. And great on Dynasty. Also Footballers Wives. Taurus people have probably always been mean to her so it is a protective mechanism. Or perhaps one of the five (?) husbands is a Taurus.

Sweetpea

Well, she’s not my icon LS and that’s okay as when she was in her fourties I was in my twenties!

And I suppose I can be kind as looking up her birth date she was born in 1933…Same year as my dad..

Okay, she can hate whomever she likes…

i did not say she was my icon. i said she IS an icon. And icons are ageless. What is there some rule now that icons have to be one’s own age? Or younger? Hypatia in the post before is now an icon of mine – leos need icons. Or is Hypatia not permitted by the icon police as she is not alive in this century?

I see your point….

Well, being Gem rising I simply adore my Venus in Taurus!

Joan Collins can stuff her smoked salmon up her smokey pink bum…

I mean honestly…I never took that woman a bit seriously on Dynasty nor in “real” life…

Hahahaha, that’s so funny!

I mean no offense to any of the lovely Taureans here, but I have to agree…that’s the one sign I have the hardest time connecting with. That said, I do have some Taurus friends I like a lot!

My boss is Taurus…he does this weird intense eye contact thing that is very discomfiting…is that a Taurean thing?
