The third sign of the zodiac, Gemini is ruled by Mercury which represents intelligence inside matter. The glyph of Gemini symbolizes two pieces of wood bound together.
In ancient times this was seen to signify the conflicts arising from contradictory mental processes. Geminis establish their relationship between the self and material substance through a balance of opposing thoughts. This bond may also be interpreted as the link between rhythm and form.
the most versatile of the signs, Geminis are seldom what
they seem to be. Chameleon like, they will take a stand, voice
an opinion, decide on an option and then completely change their mind
tomorrow. Nothing is ever written in stone by the Gemini. They are truly
a free soul, driven by curiosity and a desire to know . They usually
have several things going at once, and within such chaos, they thrive.
Geminis are optimistic people. All things are fresh and fascinating for the them. They possess great enthusiasm. Routine is boring for them. Restless, with an active imagination and a keen intellect, life must be lived to the fullest for theGeminis. Gemini analyzes everything. Gemini's are usually affectionate, courteous, kind, generous, thoughtful and superficial.
Geminis are expressive folk, and this they manifest beyond mere speech. Often gifted with their hands, it seems whatever they touch does turn to gold. Their love of communication may also express itself as an affinity for languages. Geminis have a knack of making life a little more interesting for the rest of the zodiacs.
Main positive traits: Versatile, adaptable, inquisitive, intelligent, quick to learn.
On the turn
of a moment, Gemini can become cynical, biting, moody and quickly
angered. Inseparable as two sides of a coin, those born in this sign
can be dazzling and irresistible or inconstant and irrational.Once
something is familiar , the interest wears thin and the need for new
worlds to investigate grows strong again. Geminis are fickle. This
is not intentional, it is their basic nature to be so.
Would you believe this beautiful and sort after gem is composed primarily of the salt calcium carbonate! It is even classed as "organic" as it is derived from animals and plants. Other members of this class include coral and amber.
Advice for the Geminis
generally have a sensitive nervous system, and don't fare well under
too much stress. As Geminis considers danger about as seriously
as they consider the rest of life, there is a need to restrain a
sense of heroic invincibility.
Origins in Mythology
constellation of Gemini has been seen as twin figures by
cultures throughout the world, back into prehistory. The Greeks recognized
them as Castor and Polydeuces. To the Romans they were Hercules and
Apollo. Often perceived as twin boys, the lore sustains that they
were placed in the night sky by Jove to honor and exemplify the fidelity
of their brotherly love. In other instances they were seen as a
sister and brother or two angels, then within later Christian
traditions, as Adam and Eve.
To the Romans, who knew them as Castor and Pollux, the twins were invoked on the field of battle to assure victory. For centuries beyond they were held as guardians to sailors on extended or risky voyages.
