Mercury ☿ is the ruler of Gemini, the Ancient messenger of the Gods. Communication is paramount with Geminis and often with two modes at the same time, telephone, internet, speaking, writing, reading . . . maybe more! Geminis have charm, wit and eloquence a combination that makes for a lively and versatile conversationalist and networker.
The written symbol or glyph for Gemini ♊ represents the ‘Heavenly Twins’ Pastor and Pollux, also the hands, arms, shoulders and lungs (parts of the body ruled by Gemini).
This duality is often seen in Geminis by their working on two or more projects at the same time, having two or more books on the go, same for hobbies . . . you get the idea. They may even start arguing for the other side just to keep things lively. To our Gemini friends there is little or no difference between one thing and the other, for everything is potentially interesting. Geminis are possibly the least prejudiced of all the signs, and one of the friendliest.
The challenge is in completing projects or going deeply into a subject or situation. Areas of vulnerability for Geminis are with the lungs through bronchitis and respiratory ailments. There is also a higher than average susceptibility towards smoking addiction.
As an Element of Air some keywords to describe Geminis would be: versatile, flexible, swift, amusing, adaptable, light touch, informative, resourceful, clever.
Gemini Sun transitions us from one season to the next and thus is a Mutable sign. As Communicators, to labor with love in their chosen field of work they need to travel, circulate, move around communicating ideas between the Leaders and the Organizers.
As a Mutable Air sign Geminis do well in jobs that are unpredictable, challenging for their sharp intellect and keeps them moving. They need variety, change and interesting assignments. Geminis are made for the media, sales, taxi drivers, lawyers, agents for writers/actors/musicians, teaching (English literature or equivalent in other languages).
While the Sun is in Gemini this month we could make the most of this friendly, communicative energy in as many different ways we can think of through the internet, e-mailing, letter writing, phone calls, poetry, writing. After catching up with friends with our favorite mode of communication, we could get some books read or projects started we’ve been meaning to get to, but remember to keep some of our Taurus Sun perseverance to finish them!
