Born on June 18, 1942, McCartney has Sun and Mercury in versatile, communicative Gemini. Being the sign of the twins, there is often two sides to Gemini. In McCartney’s case, a close Neptune square to his Sun indicates he’s secretive and adept at showing only the side of himself he wants to reveal. He is also capable of great self-deception – and the accompanying disillusionment when he feels someone or something has failed him. Perhaps this was the case with his recent marriage to Heather Mills.
Pisces is also the ultimate sympathizer, so it was his grief over the loss of his first wife, Linda, four years previously, that most likely cemented her love for him.
As he once sang in “I’m Amazed” — “Maybe I’m afraid of the way I love you / Maybe I’m amazed at the way you pulled me out of time / And hung me on a line.” Ouch.
