Happy Birthday, Tupac
Happy Birthday to Tupac, who would have been 47 today.
Tupac was a Gemini Sun with an Aries Moon. While all Geminis tend to be gifted communicators, or at least eager communicators, Tupac's fiery Moon Sign made it natural to speak his mind, always. He had a quick temper (also an Aries Moon trait), and although he spoke out often about the difficulties of his community and the adversity he faced, he had an optimistic side that you sometimes saw in his music. He wanted to lift his community up!!! While his birth time is unknown I feel really strongly that his rising sign was Scorpio. Tupac had water sign eyes and was very magnetic like most Scorpios tend to be. Also, despite his strong spirit he was very aware of the darkness of his reality at a young age, which is another Scorpio trait. Nobody can see the truth and handle it like Scorpio. Lastly, he rapped about his own death and was very paranoid about dying young, and paranoia and preoccupation with death are the most well-known shadow aspects of Scorpio.
I am a huge fan of Tupac and have been since I was a kid. I loved his writing and I think his words are brilliant. I could listen to him talk all day. I feel that he had a reputation that wasn't a genuine reflection of who he truly was. There are so many quotes and lyrics of his that represent his truth, which I think inspired all of us in some way. There are so many interviews, too, where I think his perception and mental quickness (especially in situations where he is being questioned and accused of things he claimed to have never committed) are impressive, especially for how young he was.
Typically there is a reservation with showing your heart and soul with Scorpio, but with a Gemini Sun and Aries Moon, holding back is nearly impossible! With the combination of Gemini, Aries, and Scorpio what you see is what you get. I wish he was still here and we could get more of his ideas and wisdom; this world would benefit and heal more because of it.
