Gemini! About Your Sign...
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, and happy, if circumstances
are right for them, or 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. Changing horses in the
middle of the stream is another small quirk in the Gemini personality which makes
decision making, and sticking to a decision, particularly hard for them.
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, and 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.
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 make 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.
they are fickle, not intentionally so but because of the basic inconsistency of
their emotional nature, which has an amoral aspect to it. Their is a side to Geminians
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 while analyzing 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.
can be successful in many walks of life though their general characteristics 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, poets, journalists, or lawyers. In business any work which combines quick-wittedness
with a change of surroundings suits them; working as a traveling salesperson, brokerage
work, or dealing with the public in any capacity is right up their alley. Because
they are dispassionate, logical, rational and analytical they make good scientists,
especially in the fields of medicine and astronomy. They can also make excellent
members of the Armed 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 psychic
researchers of a sceptical kind. Negatively they can degenerate into confidence
tricksters, thieves and even adepts in the black arts.
Possible Health Concerns...
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
prone to taking unnecessary risks and wind up harming yourself or others in the
process. Sometimes pursuing pleasure too vigorously could also qualify as risk taking.

THAT MAY ARISE FOR YOU, AND THEIR SOLUTIONS

are suppressed, or unrealized, problems will arise. However, with astrology we can
examine the problem and assess the proper solution based on the sun sign characteristics.
As a Gemini you may see things below that really strike home. Try the solution,
you most likely will be amazed at the results. If you find yourself on the receiving
end of the negatives below, it is because you are failing to express the positive.
Being superficial could be a big problem for you in your overall relationships with
others and also in getting ahead on many jobs where you must endeavor to dig deep
and learn something thoroughly. This is the worst Gemini trait of all.
SOLUTION: To make a conscious effort to control this trait is the best approach
to take to this problem. If you make a commitment to something or someone you should
mentally force yourself to keep that commitment where possible. This will be hard
but it can, and has been, accomplished by many under this sign.
Not one who cares for peace and quiet, you create your own problems with loved ones
by picking arguments or tale carrying from one to the other then stand back and
enjoy the show.
SOLUTION: While this may relieve your boredom, it is something that you should
not let happen as it could easily go out of control and cost you the love and companionship
that you desire. When you feel like doing this it would be better to take a long
walk and let the feelings pass.
Boredom is one of your biggest problems and you could easily fall into mischief
if you do not find ways to alleviate it.
SOLUTION: You have a great many creative talents and if you put these to
work for you in some sort of hobby or project you will find you do not have time
to be bored, also, other physical activities should be considered: workouts at the
gym, racketball, hiking, etc..
You could have health problems brought on by overindulgence of food, drink, or the
night life which only gets worse as you age.
SOLUTION: Tame your urges and save the party times for weekends only and
then try not to overdo it. By keeping everything down to a mild roar you may not
have to fight off diseases such as obesity or cirrhosis of the liver.
You may have the problem of not being able to keep a spouse or a lover due to your
pursuit of the opposite sex.
SOLUTION: Cultivate the habit of not flirting with every attractive person

you are really ready to do this.
