Symbolized as two twins talking to each other, Gemini is the sign of the Messenger and the Trickster, the Blogger and the Bookseller, the Writer and the Journalist, the Sales Rep and the Spin Doctor, the Quick Thinker and the Quick Change Artist. When a person’s Sun (conscious identity) is in Gemini, their public persona will eventually come to encompass communication and/or cross-pollination in some fashion. Sitting 90 degrees from Gemini is Pisces, the sign of Mystic and the Martyr, the Poet and the Artist, the the Sinner and the Saint. When a person’s Moon (unconscious emotional needs) is in Pisces, they need to spend time in mystical, artistic, altered or meditative realms in order to feel emotionally nourished.
Combine a highly communicative, cross-pollinating Gemini Sun with a trans-dimensional Pisces Moon and the result is one of the most imaginative, magical, mystical, and enchantingly original of the 144 Sun/Moon parings. Recently deceased musician Prince is a Gemini Sun, Pisces Moon. His ability to cross-pollinate between rock, funk, jazz, and soul enabled him to produce music so original and enchanting that more than a few people feel he is the Mozart of our time.
Gemini/Pisces natives tend to be more right brained creative types than left brained analytical types. this pairing is at its best when working with the imaginative and the invisible, the mysterious and the opaque, the fantastic and the phantasmal. They make for great musicians, artists, poets, dancers, and dream interpreters. Prince was a universally loved musician, dancer, and poet whose artistic expressions were so inspired that one can’t help but wonder if he channeled them from the realms of the dream world.
According to astrologers Suzie and Charles Harvey in their book Sun Sign Moon Sign, the Gemini/Pisces pairing has “an ability to work with symbols and images . . . your desire to express the inexpressible requires an art form, not a chat.” Prince, in addition to being one of the world’s most creative musicians, is famous for having changed his name to an unpronounceable, inexpressible symbol that had to be rendered in artistic form in order to be explained in a chat. That’s about as Gemini/Pisces as it gets: always original if occasionally perplexing.
The textbook Gemini/Pisces individual has the potential to earn money through creative pursuits but they’re usually not the best at money management or safe-keeping of funds. For instance, imagine a scenario where Prince got a hold of your checkbook. You’d no doubt get it back at some point but the checks contained therein would likely have some incredibly creative calligraphy or art work on them, rendering them exquisitely beautiful if not very usable at the grocery store or hardware shop. According to recent reports in the news media, Prince passed without a will – a perplexing lack of financial planning for a man worth hundreds of millions of dollars.

Prince passed as a full moon eclipse was at two degrees Scorpio was lighting up his North Node (destiny) at two degrees Scorpio, sign of both psychological depth and underworld intrigue, in the 12th House of hidden matters. Prince’s passing was unexpected, tragic, and, unfortunately, has been shrouded with a great deal of hidden, underworld style intrigue.
