Gemini’s go everywhere together, hand-in-hand, symbolizing their dual nature. Our world comes in pairs: good and evil, male and female, in and out, yin and yang-and Gemini’s are living proof. Some might say Gemini’s are an entanglement of paradoxes, but the truth is that they have an easy acceptance of opposites. Gemini’s world is one of duality. Gemini’s can like this and that, one thing and its opposite. It’s like they see their world through a radio and they can tune experiences and points of view in and out as their interests change.
Gemini’s are curious, talkative, versatile and mentally active. Their mind can bounce around from one topic to another with great ease, making Gemini the champion of cocktail party chatter and lighthearted social encounters. Others will think that Gemini’s are fun to be with, but their ability to change with the winds can also lead others to see Gemini as shallow.
Gemini motto should be, “A rolling stone gathers no moss.” Gemini’s are the eternally youthful children, no matter their chronological age. A razor-sharp wit can have them verbally dueling with the very best of opponents, who moments later are their best friends. As they fly through life, they shouldn’t forget to take time to smell the flowers.
The astrological element of air represents movement. The most efficient movement between two points is a thought. Air signs are thinkers. They emphasize the intellect over other functions. With active minds and a good command of language, the air signs are natural born communicators. They can be light and breezy like the breath of spring, but their words can also carry the power of a gale force wind.
The air of Gemini is always changing direction. First the winds blow one way, then another. It’s a metaphor for how our mind solves a puzzle, first thinking one way and then trying a different approach. This is a restless and searching wind.
THIRD HOUSE: COMMUNICATION
The Third House symbolizes all aspects of communication-and most communication happens within our immediate environment. Therefore, this is also the house of our surroundings. Traditionally, this includes the type of interactions that happen between siblings, whether or not you actually have any. It also represents quick trips and short distance travel.
RULING PLANET: MERCURY
Mercury, the Messenger of the Gods, moves around the Sun faster than any other planet. He symbolizes our thoughts-not only how we think, but how we communicate. In fact, Mercury is in charge of all language. Mercury is our active and rational mind. It is not only “just the fact,” but also what we do with them. As the ruling planet of Gemini, Mercury is restless and changeable. It drives us to talk and to listen, but not necessarily to action.
