Jennifer Angel has penned an astrological profile of Marilyn from the New York Daily News

“As a Gemini, MARILYN MONROE was not scared of pushing the envelope on creativity, if she could visualize it she could achieve it and would not let many tell her what she could or couldn’t do. As a Gemini, she would have had a knack of communicating her feelings and visions exactly as she saw them, hence, allowing other people to help her fulfill her dream of putting her individual edge on whatever she was working on, which she indeed did.”
