In their incessant competition for the first place, as well as in their work, in sports or in the hearts of members of the opposite sex, with a warrior-like and adventuresome spirit, Arians are not the kind of people who stay home with a book in their hands for hours on end. However, they love books, reading then during short pauses among their numerous daily chores. This is why you Arians flee long novels, exception made of those dealing with adventure or war and in which you are able to identify regularly with the main character or hero. As far as the newspaper goes, you first read the sports section and you are crazy about automobile magazines or those dealing with arms. If life has already taught you that psychological war is generally more successful than the one that uses muscle power, you will certainly read all of Jung’s and Freud’s works. And, finally, there is no Arian who will not find himself in Milan Kundera’s masterpiece, The Unbearable Lightness of Being, and in the Memoirs of Casanova.
Monarchs in the art of wasting time, Taureans have no need of stuffing their free time with anything at all in order to feel better. For them, it is enough to have a garden or a well-arranged balcony and they can take pleasure in at one point for hours on end with sweet music as their only company. Nonetheless, Venus, their guardian, accentuates the artistic temperament of Taureans, a temperament that many of them express through writing, singing, painting, flower growing or even cooking. This is why for you, Taureans, manuals dealing with cooking or with the cultivation of flowers are the kind of literature that interests you and to which you always come back. Since Venus is the goddess of love and beauty, the ideal present for you could very well be the romantic and delightfully written Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov.
A fast mind, clear and multidimensional, just as much as a great wealth of ideational association, are the elements that help Geminians in directing their free time towards preparing a master’s or doctoral work or in writing a new book while others are sleeping or resting. In fact, all those things that other signs grow tired of, such as studying, reading or memorizing, bring pleasure to Geminians and stimulate them. You Geminians have more talents and interests than the average but no more bodies for materializing your ideas than the average. As a result, you quite often feel prisoners of time and space. Just as Mercury, your protector and the messenger of the Gods, has simultaneously a weak spot for thieves, should your level of awareness be lower, you will find short critiques of a book on the basis of which you will be able to understand the content and to criticize it, quite satisfying. If your level of awareness is any higher, you will no doubt turn into a true encyclopedia and will have a lot to say about each area of knowledge. Whatever the case, Grisham’s The Firm will bring your cerebral circuitry to a point of incandescence.
