How to Behave Under the Gemini Moon
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You're not lacking in faith, but you should be a little careful about where you put it today. Don't put your faith in one plan, institution or person unless that person is you or someone you love dearly.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). What conspires between you and the competition will not dissuade you, but will instead strengthen your convictions and your fearlessness. You may change your approach, but you'll continue the journey.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Embrace your constraints; they make you more creative. Also, you may suspect that you don't have all the information -- good! There's a Forrest Gump kind of luck born of blissful, optimistic ignorance.
TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (Feb. 22). Most positive-minded people can find the opportunity in a bad situation. But you will do something much more rare this year: You'll turn an already good situation into an optimal showcase for your unique work. You will touch and inspire people. Your strength springs from family; your best ideas spring from what and whom you love. Gemini and Leo adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 12, 9, 38, 2 and 17.
COSMICALLY CURIOUS ABOUT ... SELF-PARENTING (PART FOUR): Adulting is essentially a journey toward becoming the ideal parent of yourself. For Gemini, the idea that each individual person is made up of a multitude of people is not so difficult to grasp. Used to being a twin, Gemini understands that inside each grown person is the person they were at 3 years old -- and the person they were at 8 years old, too. There's the devil's advocate, the judge, the jury, the lover, the fighter and, among many others, the kind parent. For Gemini, self-parenting is a matter of recognizing the existence of all those inner archetypes and then choosing to focus on the voice of the parent.

Parenting is not rocket science. It doesn't have to be complicated. The basics of good parenting include protection, nutrition, encouraging optimal sleep patterns and creating an atmosphere where the child can learn and grow on all levels. While there are certain boundaries, limits and disciplines to apply, they should be geared toward helping the child function effectively in a larger social environment. For a Gemini, effective self-parenting involves simply acknowledging that the ideal parent is already inside -- the answers are intuitive, and all a Gemini has to do is choose to listen and follow the guide.
CELEBRITY PROFILES: In Drew Barrymore's photograph book "Find It in Everything," she shares her pictures of the heart shapes that have shown up in her everyday life through the years. The multitalented Pisces artist (with Venus and Jupiter in Pisces, too) has more love than ever to celebrate as a mother of two daughters. She'll expand her producing credits this year with the television series, "The Black Rose Anthology."
