A deeper look at Gemini

Your Sun Sign describes the center of your personality, what motivates and drives you, and who you are learning to become

Gemini is the third sign of the zodiac and is represented by the the twins. Ruled by Mercury, this is the sign most concerned with the exchange of information and ideas. Born with The Sun in Gemini you are here to ask questions and find out.

The Gemini Sun is a chameleon, which makes their personality hard to describe since it changes all the time. Those born under the sign of the “Twins” have at least two personalities, but often many more.

Gemini has an erratic, curious persona with many, often contradictory, sides to it. Those with the Sun in Gemini are continually moving between rational and irrational reactions within their own psyche, internally exploring the myriad of possibilities across a spectrum of potential responses. Having analyzed all possible outcomes and responses from within, Gemini can then return to the bright and bubbly social mode of being that is their natural birthright.

Geminis are bright and energetic and love acquiring knowledge and sharing it. Symbolized by the Twins, they are often pulled in different directions and can seemingly switch personalities instantly. Sun in Gemini people feel even more of an urge to express themselves and are incredibly social. They never discriminate and get along with all walks of life.

The Dark Side of Gemini comes from being detached from emotion, which can be pushed by culture and technological entrancement. Some dark side traits are being manipulative, duplicitous and a cruel gossip. Gemini can be strangely uncomfortable with emotion, and will seek to find ways to analyse what in essence needs to be felt. This can lead to conflict within the self, as well as in relationships, if the tendency to detach is not recognized and actively worked upon.

In time, your versatility and willingness to learn helps you become a valuable friend, source of fun, and well-informed ally. Your challenge is to explore the realm of possibilities, whilst recognizing the support that structure brings. Then you can communicate all that you know with depth as well as conviction.

As a Gemini, it’s important to be aware that you need intellectual and social stimulation and decide for yourself what are healthy ways to fill those tanks. Your life is focused on learning and sharing information as Mercury, your sign’s ruler, is known as “the messenger of God’, the only one to be able to transcend the levels of both Heaven and Hell. Insatiable curiosity is part of your make-up, finding appropriate ways to satisfy that is part of your life’s work.
