Taurus has some bad traits but Joan Collins, the British actor, loathes them. Maybe it’s her Gemini Sun; maybe it’s her Taurus Moon and Mercury. This is from an interview with the woman best known for high-camp, iconic performance as Alexis Colby in Dynasty, the ultimate Eighties Soap Opera.
“…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….”
Here’s the thing. We often dislike the aspects of ourselves we’re not expressing. Joan Collins is a Sun-Lilith-Venus in Gemini woman. She has Aries Rising. She may identify more with her Air and Fire energies. Perhaps she denies her lunar Taurus nature, preferring the mercurial edge of Gemini. Many people don’t do their Moon, and it comes out in unexpected ways.
