Gemini is guided by the planet Mercury
GEMINI is an air sign… always on the go! Travel, talking, politicizing, editing, mercurial, entertaining, accepting (unless judgmental), with a need for spontaneity, and attempts to harmonize thoughts with intuition in order to activate and realize the Soul’s agenda.
The Mundane & The Esoteric
To truly understand yourself through Astrology, it’s important to consider the behavioral traits of both the Mundane: more earthly, lower self, ego driven—and the Esoteric: spiritual, compassionate, original.
When reading the following, keep in mind that you are a lovely mix—in differing degrees–of MUNDANE and ESOTERIC.
MUNDANE Gemini, you can be rigid and get stuck doing things one way.
When you obsess about certain thoughts and you’ll get stuck, often paralyzed from following through.
Then you might go the exact opposite way and act before thinking.
You analyze, then dictate instead of intuiting.
You judge others according to your standards.
You judge others according to your standards.
You often measure yourself by the passage of time and say, “I’m 30 already. I should have a family and money in the bank. Donald Trump had it by the time he was 27. Now look where he is.”
You do this because you believe that the mind is in control and that you can think your way past feelings.
You become immobilized by your judgments and get defensive.
Sometimes you miss the joke because you spend too much time analyzing and criticizing the words.
Your ideal is to build a bridge from ‘here to there’. Imagine yourself meeting your goals halfway on that bridge as others come to assist… this will eliminate gaps in your life.
ESOTERIC Gemini… you know that you don’t always know.
You seek out teachers, learn something new, and then collaborate with others for the betterment of all.
You look to integrate your duality by “doing unto others.”
You’re wonderful at giving and forgiving.
You can talk about anything when you travel to gain knowledge and wisdom…and all just for the fun of it.
You’re terrific at managing or networking people. You see the possibilities between different ideologies.
When you articulate the global perspective, oh what a healing!
GEMINI RISING SIGN
When Gemini is on the rise, the planet Mercury guides the general theme of a person’s astrological chart.
Mercury represents communication, details, thinking, small journeys, analyzing, gossip, indecisiveness, judgments, evaluations, siblings, and research.
Gemini Rising, oh how you love those fleeting moments that make up your spontaneous, meaningful and superficial experiences.
You’ve got a nervous or electric energy that results in spastic movements, decisions or impetuous actions (and sometimes dogged opinions).
Many times the more profound, deeper or spiritual experiences are pondered instead of felt and mistrust or doubt keeps that experience from the intuitive or feeling state.
What would help to understand and deepen your intuition (where trust and confidence reside) is a commitment to a daily method or belief that gives you positive results, such as meditation.
Meditation helps you to develop greater compassion for those you champion and serve.
It’s key for you to not judge your experiences or people as either right or wrong. But rather feel if those experiences of people speak your truth. If they do, you’re closer to feeling comfortable with ‘feeling’ and ‘intuiting.’
You seek new and exciting experiences that foster compassion and happiness. So if you get bored with your situation or with friends, toss an adventure into the mix to satisfy that need for ‘newness.’
Data and information that get you to think about how you feel are also exciting.
Money can be made through writing, women’s and children’s issues, religion, spirituality, politics, setting new structures for government, health (or healing equipment), healing, and through financial institutions.
In many cases you might see only one way of enacting business and resist change for fear of losing ‘time’ and not just money.
Your ideas about government, finances, health, and healing practices can be uncomfortable for others depending upon HOW you choose to express yourself. (Sometimes you can be overzealous in your speech! This is where you’ll need to temper sounding judgmental.)
Alcoholism and/or addictive or critical judgmental behavior (such as fundamentalism) surrounds you at times. Once you uncover your inner sense of security you learn to remove the judgments surrounding your belief about your original Source.
Then you begin to experiment more easily with different cultures and belief systems and come to see the whole world as merely a reflection of YOUR own possibility.
You’re a true humanitarian and look for a cause to serve. Your methods of problem solving are unique and based in fairness and facts.
You can develop unusual methods to generate global healing.
Professions that attract you are, Network Chiropractors, Micro-Bankers, ‘New-Age’ economists or authors of controversial and timely topics that generate awareness.
You have a diverse group of friends and associates from different cultures.
Your romantic relationships need to have a foundation of freedom, with a practical and compassionate philosophy. You’re happiest exploring new territory with those you love.
If you get too lost in a relationship or obsessed with someone who’s critical, then your deeper identity is lost and you become conflicted about beliefs—’what’s really true for me and for them?’
Conversely (as with dual signs) you might take on a personal challenge to reshape a person’s thinking, even at the sake of your own marital happiness.
Finances are best approached by technological means, nurturing occupations, writing and journalism, healing or medicine, government and politics, as well as the food industry (food critic, taster, wine connoisseur).
One of your parents might have given you the impression that in order to flourish, you must accept fault and blame even when it doesn’t apply.
Shy from your inner critic about your life and focus on the abundance of life.
Ones that are experiential serve you the best, even though you might be drawn to the traditional types of counseling at first. (Lots of talking in those!)
** Be advised that too much talking in traditional psychological counseling might help to lay the foundation for healing, but you’ll lure yourself into believing that ‘talking’ your way out of a deep-seated pattern is the only way to go.
You get bored doing the tried and true, but the tried and true opens the door for you to problem solve. Emotional Freedom Technique, Alexander Technique, Energy Work, coupled with talk therapy works best.
Your greatest ah-ha will come when you FEEL if a way is your truth or not.
If I start thinking about an experience I’m having I’ll stop having the experience. Be still.

GEMINI MOON SIGN
The Moon sign is the connection to the mother, to feelings, and represents your ability to allow yourself to receive, to handle finances, and to share who you are on a visceral level.
Understanding your emotional self is important and helps you to harmonize your thoughts with your feelings so that you can bridge the gap between head and heart, between reasoning and intuition.
The Moon sign is often associated with the unconscious connection you have to your mother, and the feelings of influence that limit or support emotional expression.
You tend to intellectualize your feelings instead of actually feeling them.
How do you know when you’re doing this? Because you’ll think about your feelings instead of actually feeling them… and…
… this can keep you up ALL…. NIGHT… LONG. Tired yet?
The relationship and perception to your mother is at best curious, and in many cases, obligatory. (Thinking that she’s a victim and then how to best care for her.)
Gemini Moon can vacillate to great extremes. This also applies to how you might perceive mom… as psychotic on some level—bouncing from extreme emotion to denial or as a victim who did their best to control their environment.
As a result, you might have little compassion or patience for weepy emotions in yourself and others. You’d rather reason your way through intense emotions.
You might also enter extreme periods of wealth or debt as you learn to identify your feelings as FEELINGS, instead of as thoughts.
To help you remedy this and have a more even feeling and emotional state is to first understand this—The moment you start thinking about an experience you’re having is the moment you stop having the experience.
Second, explore biofeedback games, technology and deep meditations such as Holosync and Theta wave brain entrainment audios.
These methods bypass thought processes and can help you navigate and harmonize your feelings instead of analyzing them.
Do this often and you’ll attract more nurturing women (and men) and heal your financial, sexual, and emotional debts.
