June/Gemini


(come back)

I’m happy when I find out actors & artists who were born in June or have/had my same star sign, Gemini, (the ones I know, not fan of all of them, but fair to report everybody!)

I don’t believe in Horoscope and, of course, that is not the main reason why I like those who are my favourite! But it’s a nice research, since there are interesting people in my list.

I don’t know the exact limits of the sign “Gemini”, I read 21 May-20 June or sometimes 21 May-21 June or 21 May-22 June or 22 May-21 June, so I’m not sure on everybody.

A citation before to start:

« L’aiuola che ci fa tanto feroci,

volgendom’ io con li etterni Gemelli,

tutta m’apparve dà colli a le foci;

poscia rivolsi li occhi a li occhi belli. »

(Dante – Paradiso, Canto XXII, 151-154)
