May 30 is Cary Deuber’s birthday.
I’m a big fan of Cary Deuber on the “Real Housewives of Dallas.” To me, she represents the sort of Gemini friends that I’ve had in real life. One minute she’s telling the cameras that she needs to butt out of everyone else’s business, and the next minute she’s having a crisis because she knows that if she doesn’t say something that she’s going to get roasted by her so-called friends for not spilling the beans. You can practically see the wheels turning in her head when she is put between a rock and a hard place, and you can definitely see the instant regret she feels when she realizes that she should have left well enough alone.
It’s a very typical Gemini scenario, and the reason why many Geminis are considered to be “two-faced.” They are busybodies and blabbermouths by nature, but with the mental acuity to understand that their words have consequences. Unfortunately, their mouths often act before their brains have a moment to adequately process what they are doing.
RHOD has three Gemini housewives. The delightful Stephanie Hollman is a Gemini, and so is the undelightful LeeAnne Locken. I believe that those two women are rather extreme examples of the best that Gemini has to offer (Stephanie) and the worst that Gemini has to offer (LeeAnne). Cary represents a more middle-ground version of her sun sign. I suppose that is because she actually has some grounding influences in her natal chart. She has Mercury in Taurus in mutual reception to Venus in Gemini. Her moon is quite likely in Gemini, too, unless she was born in the evening. She has Mars in Leo, Jupiter in Taurus and Saturn in Cancer.
An interesting thing about Cary’s chart is that she has her natal Chiron right on the cusp of Aries/Taurus where Uranus was doing a little dance over the past couple of years. Much of Cary’s behavior during that time (backing away from work to be with her daughter, and then changing her role at the office by choosing to collaborate with her husband in a new business venture), could be attributed to this planetary transit. She used innovation to solve a problem that was making her feel as if her life was lacking something. Hopefully, this new direction is feeding her soul in a positive manner.
Anyway, I’m looking forward to seeing more of Cary Deuber on RHOD in the future. I really like the show in ways that I haven’t liked a new “Housewives” show in ages. It holds a solid third-place in my heart, right behind “Beverly Hills” and “New York.” I hope that nothing happens to change that (like an increased focus on LeeAnne), but I don’t think Cary’s fellow Gemini, Andy Cohen, would mess around with the current cast. They really are a terrific group, even with Kameron Westcott making me embarrassed to be a Capricorn.
Oh well. You can’t win them all!
