As much as I delight in trying to apply logic and guidelines to matters of the stars in all of the astrological articles I write, I don't follow all of those guidelines in my everyday life.

And there's one, in particular, that I tend to eschew: By some astrologers' estimations including those of our friends, the Astrotwins , my boyfriend of four years, Denis, is a Cancer. But, according to others, he's actually a Gemini — which I refuse to believe.
For the record, Denis's birthday is June 21, which is sometimes called a "cusp" birthday — he was born on a day that, depending on the year, may fall into the date range for Gemini or Cancer. Most astrologers who believe in the "cusp" say any dates between the 18th and the 23rd of the month can go either way. As a writer, I try to give all astrological perspectives equal weight. But, as a woman who may read too much into her own horoscope, I have to take a side here.
For my own selfish, superstitious reasons, I've made an executive decision about his astrological identity: He is a Cancer, plain and simple. Nothing against Geminis — my mother and some of my best friends are Geminis. But, as a Capricorn, I just cannot believe that I'd ever date one, since Gems and Caps don't always make great couples. Beyond that, Denis would make the least believable Gemini. All those nasty things you hear about Gems aren't true, but they do have a particular way of going through the world read: rapidly and loudly that just doesn't fit Denis' style. His patient temperament and love of staying in scream "Cancer" to me.
But, considering Denis couldn't care less about his sign even if he tried, this decision probably says more about me than my relationship.
