Gemini is the 3rd Sign of the Zodiac. Gemini is a dual sign (the 2 twins). This duality is the reason for Gemini’s changeability. It will also incline them to involvement in more than one thing at a time. It is the sign of communication, the talkative one.
Gemini is very clever and can pick things up very quickly, particularly if they are interested in the subject. However, they can also forget quickly, once their attention is diverted in a different direction. For this reason, they often have trouble getting things properly organised. They will start something and as their attention is diverted, they race off in that direction, only to eventually realise the other matter is half done. Sometimes they will return to if, but very often not. It is simply left that way or forgotten.
Gemini can also be this way with their conversations. They will talk about one thing. That can remind them of another point, which they divert to and that might lead them to something different again. The person trying to make sense of this feels completely lost!
There is a constant need of mental interest and stimulation. For this reason reading can be an avid interest. Gemini likes information but doesn’t necessarily want to keep hold of it forever.
Gossip is associated with Gemini and the more amusing it is the better. Gemini can be very clever with words. Writing skills are a Gemini trait. Gemini needs to have contact with other people so their need for communication is stimulated. They cannot be shut away for too long on their own without someone to talk to, although the telephone or a “chat line” on the internet may satisfy this need somewhat. Gemini provides plenty of ideas for others to think about.
Gemini rules the hands, arms, shoulders and lungs. People who have any of their personal planets or ascendant in Gemini will have sensitivity or health problems associated with these areas of their body. They definitely should not smoke.
If the Sun is in Gemini: Will have to learn to cope with change and to be versatile. Once this is accepted it leads to being able to quickly recognise when something has reached its use by date and needs to change. Have little desire to remain in situations that have lost stimulation. Everything in life has an opposite. The test for Gemini is to give consideration to both poles and discern the degree of what is acceptable and what is not. Being willing to increase knowledge before making swift alterations can be helpful but not always practiced.
If the Moon is in Gemini: The perception very quickly interprets the emotional content of any situation. There is an underlying restlessness that can make it difficult to ever feel completely settled. Many moves of home are often the case. If not moves, the furniture will be moved around on a regular basis to give a different look. Changes in life are readily accepted almost expected in a way. Easily bored if there is not sufficient mental stimulation. A gatherer of information which generally includes a love of reading. Natural communicator. Phones are essential!
If Mercury is in Gemini: talkative and usually fast talkers. Learning will be quick but readily forgotten. Very good communication skills. Won’t want to get too serious when it comes to decisions. Good at thinking up alternatives.
If Venus is in Gemini: carefree with money. Will earn money through utilising communication in some way. Denotes more than one marriage (or permanent relationship). May be emotionally involved with 2 people at the one time. Will enjoy change. Will be attracted to other people with Gemini traits.
If Mars is in Gemini: action is fast and changeable. Will act quickly upon an idea without thinking through the consequences. A lot of nervous energy. Has difficulty resting or taking things easy. Changing moods, mainly because of boredom.
If the Ascendant is in Gemini: Silence is not your scene in any situation, so conversation must be entered into, mostly upon your instigation. Variety and change is the name of the game. This will be expressed in areas of personal appearance and/or environment or moving from one place to another.
