Kanye West has been acting more than just a little odd lately. 

His actions have never really been in the "mild" category, but his political musings regarding Donald Trump and a recent outburst on TMZ a few weeks ago have left many of his long-time fans scratching their heads. 

For those of you who aren't aware, West was in the TMZ offices earlier this month and made some controversial comments. 

He told staff: “When you hear about slavery for 400 years. For 400 years?! That sounds like a choice. You was there for 400 years and it’s all of y’all.”

These comments have been largely criticised, with plenty of high profile stars speaking out against them.

Kanye did go on to clarify his position via Twitter. He wrote: "To make myself clear. Of course I know that slaves did not get shackled and put on a boat by free-will" and added "My point is for us to have stayed in that position even though the numbers were on our side means that we were mentally enslaved."

Some have looked to the stars to explain Kanye's recent actions. West was born on June 8th, 1977 which makes him a Gemini. Astrologer, Emily Heather Price, discussed West's star sign in a recent article for Dazed Digital. She wrote that Kanye's unpredictability is typical of his sign. 

It read: "Kanye consistently falls right in the centre of Gemini-esque drama by being mercurial (the word comes from Mercury, the ruling planet of Gemini), unpredictable, and hard to classify."

She added that anyone who is hoping that this is just a mistake and passing phase, shouldn't hold their breath. She wrote: “These may not be momentary outbursts as we have sometimes seen with him in the past, but more lasting directional shifts that alter the course of his creations for a long time to come”

That being said, she thinks that he could pull through this phase and see things in a different fashion soon. She added: "I think 2019 is going to hold a theme of Kanye rehabilitating, and redressing some of what he is speaking on right now. But it’s also possible he could double down, and use that ‘expressive’ energy to go in an entirely new artistic direction. Only time will tell."

Will West return to his old ways, or is the new Kanye here to stay? Who knows...
