WHO IS THE AUTHENTIC SELF
OF A GEMINI?
May 21 - June 21st
The sign of Gemini is the first “Air” sign of the zodiac. And when we think “air” we think “mental processes” – the ability to ‘think’. Gemini’s, I believe, are one of the most difficult signs to figure out – from a partnership capability. They are truly called the sign of “The Twins” for a definite reason. What is good today, is not good tomorrow, for a Gemini so they often can come across as being very indecisive. And looking at it from a ‘partner’ perspective, it’s difficult to know what will make them happy and/or sad.
The Authentic Self of Gemini can often be summed up in one specific word – “Changeability”. When we say someone is a Gemini, we mean, that is the sign that the Sun was in at the time of their birth. But even people who are born with a Moon sign of Gemini are certainly extremely changeable. You could say something today and get one reaction, say the same thing tomorrow and get a totally different reaction….so it’s sometimes hard to know where you stand with someone with their Moon in Gemini.
Unlike Taurus (where life is all about security), Geminis are big risk-takers! They are always looking forward to something new and exciting. They often will leave things unfinished, or uncompleted because there is a bigger and greater dream right in front of them that they feel would be within their best interest in which to partake. Life is never dull when you have a Gemini within your household….there’s a new dream every week.
Gemini people keep us alive with the hope of a new tomorrow! They are the communicators within the whole zodiac so quite often a Gemini is a great ‘talker’…conversation about anything is of great interest to the Gemini, but you’ve gotta make sure that you keep the conversation alive and interesting, otherwise Mr/Miss Gemini will become bored and shut out the entire conversation…..moving on to another topic that is of greater interest.
Because of their great communication skills, we often find Geminis deeply entrenched as Editors within the news world, writers of books or commentators. Sitting a Gemini behind a desk where they have nobody to talk to all day, can be detrimental to a true Gemini – communication is an important key for them.
In the field of Medical Astrology, the sign of Gemini reflects the shoulders, arms, hands and lungs in the human anatomy. Because of this, we often find Geminis will complain about shoulder and/or hand pain. This is often representative of carrying the load for other people. Geminis easily step up to the plate to ‘speak’ for others and to carry forward a cause. Arms and hands are the extension of their speech.
So what are some of the things that the Authentic Soul of a Gemini individual aims to do? They want to come out of the mundane and make life an exciting place to live. They want to have open communication for all man. They will truly fight for Freedom of Speech. Gemini’s see all things going on around them. Their senses are sharp and in tune. They are truly not philosophers, but instead they are more in line with the journalistic perception. To unravel the secret of the world. To gather all the clues. To see verything. That is Gemini’s endpoint.
So in reality, it it always important for a Gemini to live a ‘varied’ life – have a 100 things on the go all at the same time. If possible, to live three or four lives in one. To ensure that one never lets the mind stop growing.
Communication is a two-way street so Gemini’s must also remember that to be a good communicator, one must also be a good ‘listener’. It is fine to speak what we know…but we also have to listen in order to find out information.
It reminds me of a saying my Grandmother once taught me…..
A wise old owl sat in a tree
The less he spoke the more he heard
The more he heard the less he spoke
May you be like that wise old bird
