You’ve always been a restless soul, Gemini, even in past lives. You sought action and adventure in Europe in the Middle Ages, and may have even been among the nobility of France or England. Jousting tournaments or trade caravans to India or China were part of your world. Fleet of foot and tongue, you were often cast in the role of messenger or translator. Your thirst for knowledge and novelty has led to an overdeveloped mind, but now it’s time to cultivate the heart.
If you have Gemini rising in your chart, you may appear to others as very restless. You have this air about you of eternal youth – always moving onto something new or the next idea. You’re sometimes perceived as fickle because so many things interest you and it’s difficult to focus on one topic at a time.
When it comes to love, sex and dating, a Gemini Ascendant often has a difficult time deciding what he wants. The grass on the right side of the fence looks just as delicious as the grass on the left. He simply must sample both! Yes, it is difficult for Gemini rising to remain with one partner for long.
In relationship matters, Gemini rising holds the belief that “variety is the spice of life”. You can be sure that dating someone with this Ascendant will never be a boring experience!
Gemini Rising gives you an adaptable personality and, in general, a wiry, flexible physique. Your airy adaptability to changing circumstances and different people is often so pronounced that your personality and even physical appearance can seem startlingly diverse to different people, and from one time to another. You say what you instinctively know others want to hear. This adaptability can extend to conscious or subconscious imitations of personality traits or the physical appearance of those you admire.
Gemini gives an intellectual orientation, or filter to your life. To others you may often appear interested, but somehow emotionally detached. Physical contacts and mannerisms are quick and restless, and sometimes those rapid movements of yours make it seem as though your mind and body are not connected. You are comfortable doing several things at once, while at the same time appearing not to be paying particular attention to any of them.
Marriage can be difficult for you. For instance, you can be too ready and able to entertain yourself, while your need for more personal freedom can undermine the relationship. In any case you are subject to dual attractions and see no real reason for fidelity, nor indeed do you really expect it from others.
Marriage partners, however, may require more passion and personal attention and less independence and intellectual analysis.
Being ruled by Mercury, the mischievous planet of communication, makes you fond of communicating and extremely talkative. Even those with quieter natures are apt to have a great deal of intellectual curiosity. You can absorb a variety of information on all manner of subjects, which you are quite happy to share with anyone willing to listen. You give the impression of mental alertness and understanding, my dear, even though you may not be paying attention or actually know anything about the subject at hand. How deep your real intelligence goes is not determined solely by the Gemini Ascendant. Possessing a wide spectrum of orientations and abilities, you could be an excellent teacher, writer, scholar or researcher, although the flip-side of this is an inclination towards imitation, plagiarism or even being a con artist.
Manually dexterous, you are not just clever with your hands but have significant artistic and design skills. Lungs and hands are the physically vulnerable areas, while respiratory illnesses and injuries to hands and fingers are common.
Favorite Phrase: “I’m bored”
Good Pints: Versatile, clever, intellectual, spontaneous
Bad Points: Restless, inconsistent, and changeable
Gemini children, born under the sign of the twins, are restless, inquisitive and constantly alert. You may as well buy yourself a computer or encyclopedia now because the first word your Gemini toddler will ask is “why?” and once this begins, it never ends. Even as a toddler, his vivid imagination and fascinating tales will keep you constantly entertained. Your little Gemini bundle of fun will soon learn the benefits of occasionally st-r-et-ch-ing the truth but it’s just story telling. Here we have a budding writer. Gemini children tire very quickly of boring routines and need stimulation – books and puzzles are a must. A Gemini toddler will often outshine his playmates intellectually although it can sometimes be difficult to get your little fidget to sit still or keep quiet. Possessing a brilliant sense of humor and a sense of excitement, it will be very hard to stop your Gemini from constantly chattering, laughing and getting lots of mischief. Gemini babies are quick developers and so be prepared to have lots of learning activities on hand almost from day one.
They are natural communicators and even before they can talk the typical Gemini baby will try and communicate with you through whatever means come to hand. Your Gemini toddler will love going to kindergarten as it is in the social environment that they really start to shine.
In fact by the time little Gemini is through their first few years in school they will probably have a social diary that is busier than yours! Gemini people of all ages like to be sophisticated so don’t be surprised if your 3 month old demands something more adventurous with his or her lunch of pureed prunes than the average baby is willing to consider .
Eager to get going (this baby probably kicked up a storm in the womb!), the Gemini baby is likely to be talking early and making a mark from day one. Curious and quite the explorer, this tot is one who needs lots of stimuli in order to be happy, as they are easily bored. Since those communication skills are top-notch, the smart thing to do with this baby is bring them into a play group as soon as possible. At home, siblings can easily fill this function, as someone must! It’s never too early for the Gemini baby to interact with others, and they will also learn their lessons early on. The Gemini tot is definitely not clingy. Quite the contrary, this is one baby who is happy to march to their own drummer, gallivanting about and being amused in the process. Surprisingly, when this baby is not engaged in chatting or playing with others, there could be a certain emotional detachment. For that reason, it’s best to keep things uncomplicated and easy for them to understand, the better to maintain harmony. To sum up, the Gemini baby is the Great Communicator of the play group, has a short attention span (so keep ’em busy!), and is one clever and creative tot.
The Gemini child is quick as a whip, although most of the movement here is going on upstairs. Talk about activity! This is a child who revels in doing three things at once and is likely to do them all quite well. Suffice it to say that the Gemini child is a clever sort who will always be full of surprises. Cheeky as well, this is the kid who will bring a frog into the house with a bow around its neck and present it as a “gift” to Mom. Cute, huh? What the Gemini child loathes is boredom, so be sure this youngster’s schedule is jam-packed (sports, book clubs, you name it). In keeping with all this activity, it’s a sure bet that the Gemini child will have plenty of friends. This kid will also enjoy being the class clown, making faces and telling goofy jokes for a laugh. And funny they will be, as the Gemini child is possessed of a great sense of humor. That rapid-fire mind craves stimulation as well, so be sure that this child always has plenty of good reading material. Besides reading, the Gemini child also loves to talk, make jokes and engage in sports — and they want to do it all now. Think Palm Pilot, straight-away. Content yourself to sit back and take in the action.
That outgoing young lady in the middle of the room? She’s bound to be a Gemini! Smart and quick-witted, this social butterfly loves having lots and lots of friends. Be prepared for the phone line to be perpetually tied up. She’s adept at talking on the phone while sending email, and each piece of communication will be both delightful and dazzling. Chat rooms were made for her! The Twin girl needs a slew of hobbies and interests to keep her rapid-fire mind occupied, which is why she dabbles in everything from aerobics to Zen philosophy. As much as she loves to talk (and she’s always got the scoop on everything), she is also on top of her studies. She can manage to pull straight As without even trying! Well, sort of — networking with the teacher might have something to do with her success. She’ll enjoy engaging in sports like swimming: Gemini rules the shoulders and lungs, so laps make sense. Running laps around a track are also a good way for her to burn off some of that abundant energy. Back at school, she’s a natural for the school paper, either as a reporter or the resident gossip columnist.
This smart and likable young man is very funny and can’t help but make everyone laugh. While not the leader of the crowd, the Gemini boy will always be in a group because he loves company. He is a Jack of all trades, and in this case, as the saying goes, he’s also a master of none. “So what?” he’ll say. He loves to flit from one thing to the next, and games will capture the Gemini boy’s imagination, be it chess, Trivial Pursuit or the latest computer game. Opponents beware: This guy is good! Charmer that he is, he can talk a lot about a little and still leave a group enthralled. Being a public servant or politician might not sound exciting to some, but the Gemini boy may find his calling here. As preparation for this work, he’ll likely find himself at a college where he can hone his debating skills — UC Berkeley or those bastions of the debate game, Harvard and Yale. He can engage in verbal sparring with the best and has jokes to spare.
Gemini Traits Profile
If you have a friend or loved one who is tends to be the life of the party and who is always planning new adventures, it’s likely that he or she is a Gemini. Individuals born under the sign of the twins enjoy being around other people, and they don’t like being alone. They also like to be mentally and physically active, and they have really high energy levels. While many people view them as fun to be with, others may see people with Gemini traits as being shallow and superficial.
Communication is often the favorite activity of Gemini’s. They tend to be very eloquent and witty conversationalists; this is a good thing because they are usually quite talkative individuals. Gemini’s are known for having outstanding communication skills, and they get along with most people. On the downside, because Gemini’s enjoy talking and are very people oriented, they sometimes engage in more gossip than they should.
High Tolerance for Change
Gemini’s thrive on change. They thrive on novel experiences and constantly seek opportunities to try new things. The perfect quote to sum up how Gemini’s view change is “variety is the spice of life”. The versatility aspect of typical Gemini traits means that people born under this sign are usually adept at multi-tasking. They thrive on juggling numerous priorities and projects, and they really aren’t happy unless they’re working on several things simultaneously. On the downside, Gemini’s can easily become bored, and aren’t great at concentrating on a single project for a long period of time. They become restless when there isn’t enough change and excitement, and there’s nothing a Gemini hates more than feeling stuck in a rut. When Gemini’s get bored with a project, they’re known to just stop working on it so they can focus on something else that catches their attention.
Gemini’s tend to be very intelligent, and their minds work in a rational and logical manner. With varied interests, their high level of curiosity often drives those with Gemini traits to become knowledgeable about a wide variety of subjects. They learn quickly and easily, and seek out opportunities to acquire new knowledge. However, they don’t always do well in traditional educational settings, simply because they get bored very easily.
Dependability: Gemini’s aren’t always the most reliable of individuals. Because they tend to get restless and bored when there isn’t enough excitement, they change their minds quite frequently. Since they thrive on change and excitement, finishing projects once begun isn’t a strong suit of Gemini individuals.
Gemini and Independence: Gemini are extremely independent. They will not be pinned down by anyone or any rules. They need to experience the world on their own. Change and freedom are extremely important to Gemini, they will never let anyone dictate them, they are extremely independent and freedom is essential to their mental well-being.
Gemini and Friendship: Gemini makes very interesting and exciting friends. They like to leave their mark on everyone they meet. They are very flighty and will disappear for a long time as they meet new friends and explore new places. But when they come back, they will have new thoughts, opinions and interesting things to share and ideas to teach. Life is very interesting and fun with a Gemini friend. If you need any advice, Gemini is the one to ask. They are masters of communication and they can help you get what you need by helping you with persuasion and enthusiasm, and they give good advice too. Do not however, bog a Gemini down with all of your emotional problems, they do not want to deal with it because it depresses them and steps on their freedom if you need too much long term help, support and follow up. A Gemini friend can fill you in with the latest gossip and if you love conversation, the Gemini delivers! They are very generous with their friends; they will spend lots of time with you and share everything with you. Even though Gemini is a social butterfly, they always need time for themselves and that should be respected.
When it comes to matters of romance, Gemini’s are very well suited for relationships with Libras, whose tendencies toward balance are a good match for Gemini traits. Gemini’s also tend to get along well with Leo and Aries personalities. The worst match for Gemini’s is Virgos. The Virgo need for order and pre-planning is a constant source of conflict in relationships with Gemini’s.
Gemini and Business: Gemini tends to disperse their energy on different tasks and not just focus on one thing thus leaving a trail of unfinished projects in their wake. If they were to focus their energy in one place, their cleverness and intelligence would allow them to complete their project with success and creativity. Gemini makes an excellent manager, they can motivate a team with their enthusiasm and vitality. They also make excellent salespeople because their ease of communication allows them to be clever and make a comeback to anything a person says. They can persuade and manipulate very well. They can easily justify any move they make and explain any action. The Gemini sun sign is an air sign and symbolized by the twins. They are highly intelligent and make fantastic communicators. Gemini’s can talk twice as much and twice as fast as any sign! They are quick to grasp ideas and have great communication skills. This allows them to succeed in media careers or careers that involve communication. They have an inherent sense of curiosity that is vital to these careers. They can be wonderful diplomats, photographers, preachers, teacher, writers, journalists and lawyers.This star sign folks have a way with words and can even sell ice to an Eskimo. Some of the best salespersons are born under this sign, persuasive tactics come naturally to them. They also make good technical support workers, customer service representatives, market research executives, public relation officers and succeed in any other career that involves plenty of interaction with people. They will excel in handling promotional activities or making sales presentations one-to-one or on stage.
Gemini’s also make terrific politicians. They understand the pulse of their audience and can make moving speeches that sway them to their point of view. These clever orators can hold large audiences spellbound for hours. Those who belong to this horoscope are born experts in human relationships and this makes them ideal for politics.
Astrology says their worst fear is boredom. Careers that involve regular routine work like that of booking clerks, travel agents, accountants are probably the worst choices for them.
What Gemini looks at their workplace
Gemini’s will never be able to stomach routine jobs that involve the same kind of work every day. Variety is the spice of life for them. They enjoy working on their own. They prefer to plan their own time schedules and methods of working. They need plenty of intellectual stimulation and have a great capacity to work under pressure. Multi-tasking is something that Gemini does with ease and this is quite a big asset at the work place. They work best in jobs that involve a certain amount of socialization. They do have a bit of absent-mindedness and may not be the most punctual employees.
Gemini like Bosses
Gemini bosses are brilliant but restless in nature. They are the masters of change and will make swift changes in an organization regularly. They will delegate work to others around them. They have quicksilver minds and can see all sides of a coin at once. Blessed with immense wit and charm, they can persuade you into almost any point of view they wish to. They love to travel and are likely to travel a lot, even at short notice.
No matter which career field a Gemini chooses, it’s essential that the job is one that keeps him or her busy, engaged, and provides opportunities to communicate. Gemini’s tend to be good working with their hands, but they are not well suited for repetitive tasks. For Gemini’s, careers that provide opportunities to come up with fresh ideas and innovations are an ideal choice. Excellent career choices for those who exhibit typical Gemini traits include: Actor, Attorney, Inventor, Journalist, Meeting and event planner, Politician, Product development specialist, Public relations, Sales professional, Teacher, and Writer
Ideal Jobs Include: Gemini’s are well-suited to be explorers, writers, merchants, translators, publicists or talk show hosts.
Gemini Temperament: Gemini have the ability to react instantly to situations, and as a result, they have a very nervous temperament. They can be compared to a wound up spring as they attempt to absorb everything they can about their surroundings at once. The fact that they enjoy various situations and people add to their nervousness and that means they are almost constantly wound up. However, if they experience boredom and have nothing to survey, they get the same emotions, the need for excitement and variety. This is the Gemini duality, constantly conflicting emotions in one spontaneous, excitable package.
Gemini Deep Inside: One downfall of Gemini is their superficiality. Instead of looking deep into a person’s real qualities, Gemini will judge a person by the way they treat them. This can lead Gemini to have wrong impressions of people and can cause problems ion relationships. Gemini’s can have feeling of discouragement and moodiness although they never allow this to be seen by anyone but heir closest friends or family. Gemini usually want everyone to think that they are always happy and doing wonderfully and stress never affects them.
Gemini in a Nutshell: Gemini people are many sided, quick both in the mind and physically. They are brimming with energy and vitality, they are clever with words. They are intelligent and very adaptable to every situation and every person. Gemini are curious and always want to know what’s going on in the world around them. They are not one to sit back and watch the world go by, they want to be involved. This can sometimes make Gemini nosy; they do not mind their own business! This is because they really enjoy communicating, more so than most other astrology signs, they are the ultimate social butterfly. Gemini can talk and talk, but they have interesting things to say, their talk is not mindless babble. They have interesting opinions and thoughts on things and are not afraid to speak their mind. They are always in the know and are the one to see for the latest juicy gossip. Lacking perseverance, Gemini easily goes off topic to explore another thought or idea. Gemini are superficial, they will form opinions on matter without diving into them and exploring them fully. This can lead them into thinking they know everything, which they usually do but their mind is too busy to be concerned with fine details. Routine and boredom are Gemini’s biggest fears. Gemini would rather be naive then know the depressing truth; they do not want anything putting a damper on their freedom or positive energy.
Gemini Love, Sex and Relationships
The Gemini in Love: Gemini’s love intelligent conversation, so the way to the Geminian heart is through the head. The Geminian is best involved with a steadier, stronger personality who will tolerate and enjoy their butterfly socializing, yet still be there for them when the cards have all blown down. They are willing to experiment with all manner of relationship styles; and as long as their partner is articulate, tolerant, exciting, adventurous and willing to discuss their exploits in detail, they will be ecstatic.
Because Gemini is not above straying, they are rather divorce prone. However, typically they think the joys of an occasional adventure more than make up for the risks involved. Gemini’s are exciting companions who crave excitement and variety. They assume they will be able to easily smooth over troubled waters with their silver tongue–they are tolerant of the peccadilloes of their partners, so long as they are not stolid or boring.
Having a comfortable feeling together is important for a Gemini. This light and breezy star sign doesn’t sweet the small stuff, however, likes to be challenged intellectually. Be versatile and spontaneous to win their heart. Their sometimes child-like character loves to have fun and laugh. Your kisses are interrupted by spasms of giggles, smiles and funny observations.

Gemini –Scorpio: There’s lots of interest and intrigue with these two.
Gemini-Sagittarius: Together they can accomplish the impossible.

Gemini-Aquarius: This is an excitement plus union – excellent. What it’s like to date a Gemini Woman: The Gemini woman is truly enchanting. However, dating her might feel more like a friendship then a real relationship due to her casual nature. This is not necessarily a disadvantage, for the casual man who shy’s away from overly romantic emotions, she is the perfect woman. Since she is the astrology sign of the duality, she offers quite the challenge. One one hand, she needs to be nurtured, loved and catered to and on the other hand, she needs stimulation and novelty. She is very demanding and if you do not provide what she wants, she will be off onto the next adventure pretty quickly. To keep her interested is a challenge, not completely impossible so she is the perfect woman for the man who likes stimulation and a challenge. She needs a partner with a quick mind, she tends to poke and prod at the emotions and the minds of those who are mentally slower than her, make sure you can keep up to her wit or you will briskly be left behind. She is prone to keeping men on a string, not completely heartlessly, she is evaluating if the man is worth her attention and her time she has no time to waste with a dull man. Once you have her approval, she can easily become jealous. The reason for her is jealousy is that if she is going to open up to a man, when she rarely completely opens up to anyone, she does not want to risk her being deceived or hurt. If you are with a Gemini woman and she becomes jealous, you are on the right track to true love! Gemini women are so exciting that they are worth the effort, you will remember her forever. What it’s like to date a Gemini Man: He is a great date – charming, witty, funny, clever, talkative, creative, adventurous, just make sure you can keep up with him! Women are drawn to Gemini men because of their zest for life and their vitality and enthusiasm. You may have competition to if you are trying to win his heart. Do not expect to win him and keep him all to yourself. He is flighty and dictates his own; He will not allow himself to be pinned down and ruled by a woman. You are going to be his sidekick, not his passionate lover. He loves women and is very good at persuading them and manipulating them with his cleverness getting them into bed, he will say anything to get what he wants. He is the master of seduction. If you are looking for a great fling, the Gemini man is your top choice.
How to Attract Gemini: Love to talk that is the first rule about impressing a Gemini. Be knowledgeable about that you talk about too because Gemini are intelligent and have lots of knowledge about many things. If you are an expert on a certain topic, teach them about it, you will impress them because this know-it-all sign is does not usually know fine details about a lot of things, they are too busy to bother to learn. Speak your mind, engage them in a friendly debate but never be too conservative, they find this dull. Be honest and loyal to a Gemini, once they have had their trust broken they usually will never get it back again. Gemini are easy to date, they will do any activity anywhere. Just have fun, like you would with a friends because that’s what Gemini are, a great friend.
Gemini Erogenous Zone: Gemini’s hot spots are the hands and arms. These are very sensitive regions and are very receptive a massage and a gentle touch or stroke. This also calms the high-strung Gemini and relaxes them, setting the mood for passion. Gemini’s usually love their finger being sucked or nibbled, a great integration into foreplay that will heighten the mood. Gemini women love it when a man grabs their hand and kisses it, like a princess.
Sex with Gemini: Gemini loves to experiment and sex with a Gemini is full of novelty and excitement, trying anything and everything nearly anywhere. Gemini is not for the faint of heart or the shy and secretive lovers!
Your sexuality is, well, shall we say, fickle. Let’s face it, you do blow hot and cold (sometime even at the same time, a feat not easily appreciable by the non-Geminian…).
You love adventure and intrigue and will take all manner of risks in the runaround involved with your urgent desire to avoid boredom. Ruled by Mercury, the god (among other things) of tricksters and thieves, you are far from straightforward and uncomplicated in the pursuit of your desires.
Your penchant for variety and need for constant stimulation often finds you the strangest bedfellows. The main requirement is verbal communication. If they can talk, they can talk you into it (and vice versa). Your greatest aphrodisiac is a partner (or partners) with a flashing wit, quick mind and tolerant appreciation of your sparkling insights and observations of the bizarre trends in human behavior.
Sexually you are adventurous and will try anything that is exciting, new, or off the beaten track. So long as it involves another stimulating item to add to your repertoire, just about any sexual height can be attained, providing that it does not become habitual.
You tend to be ambi-sexual and are not unduly averse to multiple partners of either sex, should they fit the needs of the moment and spark up one or another side of your often contradictory nature.
Admirers should be aware that your dual nature may not be satisfied with just one partner. You are tolerant of most things (including infidelity, but excepting dullness!) and you expect the same tolerance that you allow others.

There will be conversations and sexual connections that could leave both speechless. It will go one of two ways. And which way that will be, is entirely up to both.
Gemini and Cancer: This is a very popular pairing. These two meet and feel destiny from their very first conversation. An intense physical attraction could lead to a sexual relationship or perhaps a marriage. The key to making this work is both must to be willing to forgive and forget. One major problem here is Gemini’s need for space and variety at all times. Gemini is an Air sign. Gemini is also a mutable sign, which means they can multitask task whereas Cancer focuses on one person, place or situation at a time. Caner may mistake Gemini’s need for outside stimulation as a sign of sexual rejection and Gemini will get irritated by Cancer’s emotional showdown and become agitated quickly. Gemini may flee and will pursue outside interests while Cancer will withdraw and become paranoid. On the flipside, Gemini can banish Cancer blues while Cancer can provide warmth and security to Gemini. Either way, this attraction is if anything, a very good learning experience for Cancer and an emotional experience for Gemini. That’s fine and well but down the line, problems can and will arise. One day, one of you could go to the store and never return. Don’t be surprised, Gemini!

This is a highly rewarding combination that promises fun and games and a major sexual attraction. Ruled by Mercury, planet of communication, these two have much in common and conversation will never get boring although the sex might. Virgo is a keeper and Gemini needs to make sure they don’t let sexy Virgo get away. If Virgo stalls for time, Gemini should run away fast before it’s too late.
Gemini and Libra: When Gemini meets Libra, Gemini will see a future and perhaps a true romantic connection. Both are air signs and can talk and have sex all night long together. Gemini will love the beauty and social charms of Libra. Gemini will see an “equal” partner and could want to make a relationship with Libra permanent.

Ruled by Mercury, Gemini has beauty, brains and tons of sex appeal. Scorpio is a highly intuitive water sign. With Gemini though, just when Scorpio thinks they have uncovered Gemini’s last secret, her or she will uncover another surprise. Secrets withheld will drive Scorpio to a boiling point.

Gemini is very attracted to outgoing and independent Aquarius. Aquarius sees sex and a relationship with this easy carefree sign known as Gemini. Together, they can build a sexual relationship that could make it to the altar. On the flipside, however, Aquarius could get cold feet and feel trapped by Gemini. Gemini could become impatient with Aquarius and finally walk away bitter. They key to making this relationship work is to know when to walk away. Do not play games with each other and that goes double for Aquarius.
Gemini and Pisces: Pisces will see adventure in Gemini. Gemini will tend to ignore Pisces deep emotions and not take Pisces seriously. Gemini is interested in keeping things on the lighter side. Pisces will be seeking depth and loyalty that Gemini considers smothering. These two will be sexually attracted to each other but where it leads will be another story. These two share a strong sexual attraction. Sex could start a relationship or end it. Either way, sex will be a source of irritation at some point. Gemini will need to learn to trust Pisces and Pisces will need to be more tolerant of Gemini’s need for freedom and versatility. Pisces will exercise patience initially, but eventually will tire of the fast pace and seek a partner not so interested in popularity. Gemini will always have outside interests to keep stimulated. Pisces will need to keep Gemini on a long leash to be happy. Better skip this one or someone could walk away heartbroken. Compatibility Rating:
Gemini, the Twins, is the first sign of the Air triplicity and the third sign of the tropical zodiac. The key phrase for Gemini is “I think”. It is a sign of lively communication, wit and breezy exchange of ideas, gossip and intellectual matters.
In Gemini, the soul force develops intellect in order to comprehend the universe. This karmic stage is concerned with information, communication, and creative writing. Gemini needs to express ideas and share information with others. The mature Gemini becomes a serious scholar, writer and researcher. The immature Gemini is a gossipy talker, nervous and high strung. It is the sign of the hands and fingers and these individuals receive pleasure by using them, either in their work or even while they talk. Gemini’s anchor points are words. Their sense of safety is by talking and responding well to emergencies. Their memories are excellent. They react intellectually to everything they experience and yet are quite moody, hence their dual natured personality.
Geminians must work to acquire calmness of mind as well as body. They might begin well by learning to eat slowly and avoid using their hands in conversation and argument. This discipline will enable them to maintain control even during angry moments.
Geminians are described as the “perennial teenagers” as they always look younger than they really are. Their alert eyes are always full of humour, with a thin nose, upturned like a child’s and a light gait with a long neck. As a rule, they are adept with mechanical devices, working with jewelry, arts and crafts, or doing repair work. Gemini talents also include design, artwork and graphics, interior decoration, magic and illusion and music.
Gemini Rules the Breath: Each sign of the zodiac has external, internal and structural ruler ship. Externally, Gemini rules the shoulders and upper arms. Internally, the breath, nerve fibers, thymus gland and lungs, trachea and bronchi. Structurally, the clavicle, scapula and humorous. This double sign portends the native suffering from two diseases at the same time. The pathological action of this sign is nervousness, negativity, passivity, or even restlessness. Tuberculosis, asthma and anemia are common to the nativity. Vulnerable parts of the body are the arms, hands, fingers, lungs and nervous system, especially the sense of hearing. Respiratory problems and various nervous conditions are common Gemini complaints which are benefited with the orange rays. Gemini is traditionally considered a barren sign.

Gemini, the sign of the Twins, is dual-natured, elusive, complex and contradictory. On the one hand it produces the virtue of versatility and on the other the vices of two-facedness and flightiness. The sign is linked with Mercury, the planet of childhood and youth, and its subjects tend to have the graces and faults of the young. When they are good, they are very attractive; when they are bad they are more the worse for being the charmers they are. Like children they are lively, happy – if circumstances are right for them – egocentric, imaginative and restless.
They take up new activities enthusiastically but lack application, constantly needing new interests, flitting from project to project as apparently purposelessly as a butterfly dancing from flower to flower. To them life is a game which must always be full of fresh moves and continuous entertainment, free of labor and routine. Since they lack the quality of conscientiousness, they are apt to fight a losing battle in any attempts they make to be moral (in the widest sense of the word). Their good qualities are attractive and come easily to them. They are affectionate, courteous, kind, generous, and thoughtful towards the poor and suffering – provided none of the activities resulting from expressing these traits interferes too greatly with their own lives and comforts. They quickly learn to use their outward attractiveness to gain their own ends, and when striving for these they will use any weapon in their armory – unscrupulous lying, cunning evasiveness – escaping blame by contriving to put it on other people, wrapped up in all the charm they can turn on. In their better moments they may strive to be honest and straightforward, but self-interest is almost always the victor. If things go against them, they sulk like children. Also like children, they demand attention, admiration, and the spending on them of time, energy and money, throwing tantrums if they don’t get what they want. They reflect every change in their surroundings, like chameleons, and can become pessimistic, sullen, peevish and materialistically self-centered if circumstances force them to struggle in any way. If the conditions of life become really adverse, their strength of will may desert them entirely. They can become uncertain of themselves, either withdrawn or nervously excitable worriers, sullenly discontented, hard and irritable, with self-looming ever larger in their struggles. On the other hand their versatility can make them very adaptable, adjusting themselves to control the world around them by means of their inherent ingenuity and cleverness.
Gemini’s have a keen, intuitive, sometimes brilliant intelligence and they love cerebral challenges. But their concentration, though intense for a while, does not last. Their mental agility and energy give them a voracious appetite for knowledge from youth onward, though they dislike the labor of learning. They easily grasp almost everything requiring intelligence and mental dexterity and are often able to marry manual skills to their qualities of mind. Their intellect is strongly analytical and sometimes gives them so great an ability to see both sides of a question that they vacillate and find it hard to take decisions. But their intelligence may very well be used to control and unify the duality of their natures into a most efficient unit. If faced with difficulties, they have little determination to worry at a problem until they find a solution – they will pick the brains of others. In their intellectual pursuits, as in other departments of their lives, they risk becoming dilettantes, losing themselves in too many projects which they follow until they become difficult. In love they are fickle, not intentionally so but because of the basic inconsistency of their emotional nature, which has an amoral aspect to it. There is a side to Gemini’s which can become deeply involved emotionally, and another, hostile to sentimentality, which stands back from a romantic situation, laughing at it and the protagonists in it, including themselves, and analyzes it intellectually. Gemini subjects take nothing seriously. So, in love, in spite of their temporary depth of feeling – for the intensity of involvement lasts only while it is new – they are superficial, light-hearted, cool, flirtatious and unimaginative in the understanding of the pain they may give others. They like intrigue, the excitement of the chase, but once they have caught the prey, they lose interest and look around for the next creature to pursue. In less serious situations they make witty, entertaining companions, good acquaintances rather than friends. Even at their worst they are never dull – there is usually playfulness below the surface, and they can be brilliant conversationalists – but they can also be quarrelsome, prattlers, boasters, liars and cheats.
Gemini’s can be successful in many walks of life though their general characters tend to make them unreliable. They are often skilled manipulators of language, in speech and writing, and may be debaters, diplomats (though in politics they are more interested in theory than practice), orators, preachers (brilliant rather than profound), teachers, authors and poets, journalists or lawyers. In business any work which combines quick-wittedness with change of surroundings suits them – working as a travelling salesperson, brokerage work or dealing of any kind.
Because they are dispassionate, logical, rational and analytical they make good scientists, especially medically, astronomers and mathematicians. They can also make excellent members of the Forces, for they take danger no more seriously than anything else and can earn themselves a reputation for devotion to duty and heroic acts. In the arts they may excel in music, painting and sculpture. They make good psychical researchers of a skeptical kind. Negatively they can degenerate into confidence tricksters, thieves and even adepts in the black arts.
Physically Gemini’s often appear youthful, even childlike. They have tall, thin, but strong and active bodies, with long arms and legs culminating in short, fleshy hands and feet. Their faces are also inclined to be long and sallow, with large, piercing hazel eyes, often in contrast with dark complexions. Their hair is often dark, almost black. They use their hands and eyes expressively – they are great gesticulators – and their movements are quick and active.
Gemini rules the arms, shoulders, hands, lungs and nervous system and its subjects need to beware of diseases and accidents associated with the upper part of the body, as well as nervous and pulmonary disorders such as catarrh and bronchitis. Their mercurial nature may also affect a constitution which is not strong if it is put under strain.
Gemini [Lat.,=the twins], northern constellation lying on the ecliptic (the sun’s apparent path through the heavens) between Taurus and Cancer, N of Canis Minor; it is one of the constellations of the zodiac. Gemini is traditionally depicted as two men. The two brightest stars in Gemini, Castor and Pollux (north of the bright star Procyon in Canis Minor), are two of the brightest stars in the sky and were identified by the Greeks with two children, in most accounts the twin sons of Zeus and Leda. The Egyptians identified the two stars with a pair of young goats.
An annual meteor shower known as the Geminids appears to radiate from this constellation during the second week in December.
Owing to the precession of the equinoxes, the summer solstice now lies in Gemini, rather than in Cancer as it did 2,000 years ago.
As one of the most prominent zodiacal constellation, Gemini actually looks like its namesake. This brilliant constellation can be seen rising in the east during the long winter evenings of December, and by the frosty early hours of the morning, is virtually overhead.
Mythology of the Twins
The third constellation in the zodiac represents two heroic Greek brothers named Castor and Pollux. The brothers were twins, according to many accounts, although it is hard to determine their actual parentage.
Their mother, Leda, was one of Zeus’ many love affairs, after which she had four children: Castor, Pollux, Clytemnestra and the beautiful Helen of Sparta. Castor and Pollux are sometimes known as the Dioscuri, meaning ‘sons of Zeus’ or the Tyndarides, meaning ‘sons of Tyndareus,’ the man who was Leda’s actual husband.
Castor and Pollux were legendary adventurers and fighters. They were members of the Argonauts, the group of brave young men who set off with Jason in pursuit of the Golden Fleece. The two brothers are also known for their constant rivalry with Theseus of Athens. Theseus, in fact, kidnapped their sister Helen one day and locked her up in Athens. When Theseus was away attending to other business, Castor and Pollux stormed the city and took Helen back.
As may seem fitting, the twins died fighting while they were still relatively young. Castor was killed in a struggle with the Leucippidae, who were actually cousins of his. Zeus saw the struggle and the death from his place in the heavens. The twins were among his favorite mortals, and Zeus did not want to see them both go to Hades, so he hurled a thunderbolt at the Leucippidae and killed them. Then he took Pollux up to the heavens. Pollux did not want to be immortal while his brother was still in Hades. He begged Zeus to bring his brother up to the sky. Zeus finally consented, whereupon the brothers reunited and remained together forever.
