Over the past 48 hours or so, reaction to Beyonce having given birth to twins has run the emotional gamut.
At first, there was confusion, as folks around the Internet were left to wonder:
Did it really happen?
Then, of course, there was sheer excitement, once numerous reliable outlets began to confirm the news late Saturday night;
Yes, it really happened!
Then, there was the unexpected backlash against Matthew Knowles after Beyonce’s father Tweeted (below) that he was, indeed, the proud grandfather of two brand new little humans.
How dare he? That is Beyonce’s major news to break!
Then, there was concern, following reports that the twins are still in the hospital as a result of a minor health issue.
Will they be alright? What is going on with them?!?
Now, a handful of Beyhive members across the World Wide Web have come up with a new reason to worry about the unnamed tiny boy and tiny girl… and it’s a reason we definitely did not see coming:
The kids are Gemini.
This astrological sign is actually Latin for “twins,” which means Beyonce has given birth to twins during twin season.
Which is apparently very bad luck.
Those who follow this sort of thing and who really believe there’s true meaning behind one’s astrological sign are concerned. To wit:
One who is a Gemini is born between May 20 and June 21.
(Editor’s Note: We don’t know the actual birthday of Twin 1 or Twin 2 at the moment, but all reports indicate they came into the world early last week.)
Astrologers believe that Geminis possess a volatile temperament and that their strength is their versatility.
This versatility make it easy for them them to learn a little about everything and develop skills in numerous areas, which seems appropriate to kids whose parents are as talented as Beyonce and Jay Z.
Geminis are also considered to hold mysteriously unique artistic and creative abilities, more so than other signs.
As we’ve read more about this cross section, we’ve also learned that Geminis are sometimes the victims of “slander.”
There are some negative connotations associated to the sign.
For this reason, some folks out there are taking the designation of Beyonce’s twins to be a positive development.
Maybe these kids can’t save the world, but perhaps they can reinstate the good names and reputations of all Geminis out there. That’s the hope at least.
This seems like a lot of pressure to place on children who cannot even support their own necks at the moment.
We’re gonna wait a little bit before we put any unnecessary pressure on the kids.
As long as they win multiple Grammys and Emmys are included in numerous issues of People’s Most Beautiful People in the World, they will have met every expectation.
