Gemini 2021 👯‍♂️ success 🚀

A cartoon robot with one body and two heads is talking to a stick figure girl. The robot represents the Gemini twins. They look a bit goofy. The twins say to the girl: To be successful Geminis in 2021, we’re following a highly technical program. The girl raises her eyebrows and replies: Do tell.

One twin says: We need to put green chilies on our food and wear high-quality emeralds on our ring finger. The girl still has her eyebrows raised.

The other twin adds: And on Wednesdays, we need to set a pair of caged birds free, and also offer green clothes or bangles to any elderly women in our house. The girl still has her eyebrows raised.

The girl looks unimpressed and replies: Wow … that’s almost as technical as NASA’s successful Gemini program that ran from 1965 to 1966.

The girl enthusiastically explains to the twins that: Gemini included the first US spacewalk. The first time a NASA spacecraft changed orbit. The first time two NASA spacecraft docked. And it proved that astronauts could spend many days in space. The program’s lessons helped humans land successfully on the moon less than 3 years after it ended. The twins’ faces are looking increasingly cross-eyed, goofy and confused.

The girl adds: If you want to be successful this year, stop reading weird horoscope sites and think of some practical ways to achieve your goals. The twins look at each other, still confused.

The girl grabs one surprised twin by the neck threateningly and says: And stay away from my pigeons.

Taurus 2021 🐂 health risks 🚀

A cartoon bull is talking to a stick figure guy with a telescope. The bull says: As a Taurean, this year I’m at risk of goitre, abscesses and diseases of the genitals.

They swap positions and now the bull is looking through the telescope. The guy says enthusiastically: Check out this orangey star called Aldebaran - the eye of the Taurus constellation. In 1972, we launched a probe called Pioneer 10 that survived the asteroid belt and made it to Jupiter. We lost contact with it in 2003. It was heading towards Aldebaran and will arrive in about 2 million years.

The guy adds: By the way, you’re also at risk of me punching you in the snout if you keep subscribing to that star sign app. The bull has turned its face around to look at the guy, surprised.
