Sun in Gemini
Keywords: I Think,
Gemini is a mutable air sign
ruled by Mercury. True to your Mercury ruler,
you have a keen intellect, an inquisitive mind,
and a quick wit. There is a love of learning
and you question everything. As a child, very
likely, you followed your mother around asking
for explanations—questioning why are things the
way they are. As an adult, you still want
explanations and find it hard to trust anything
that cannot be explained logically.
Intellectual stimulation is a life long
necessity. This stimulation may come from
advanced degrees, adult education classes,
reading, or just talking to people.
You excel in all fields that
involve communication and persuasiveness. This
includes speaking, writing, teaching, reporting,
selling, public relations, and inventing. You
may also have ability to work with your hands.
In whatever you do, variety is a must. You
dislike routine and are better at multitasking
than finishing one project at a time. Once you
have learned enough about what you are doing to
satisfy your curiosity, you may become bored and
want to do something else. Because of this, you
work much better in positions where you come up
with ideas and others carry them out, thereby
leaving you free to move on to the next project.
Intellectual companionship is
important. On a casual level you get along with
people easily. Your sharp mind and terrific
sense of humor make you an enjoyable companion,
and you are attentive to anyone whose
conversation you find interesting. You put
others at ease and truly enjoy collecting the
bits of information learned through
conversation. These traits contribute to your
persuasiveness, which you have fun with. You
may argue a position, whether or not you believe
in it, just to see if you can convince people.
You question others for your own edification and
willingly change your mind if you discover
evidence contrary to your beliefs. These
traits can lead to misunderstandings. To you
ideas are not personal. Because of this, it is
hard to understand that others may perceive your
probing as an indication of lack of trust or as
an attack and that changing your mind may be
perceived as unreliability.
Unless Saturn is strong in your
chart, your changeability, in fact, may be
unreliability. In all situations, you hate to
be fenced in. You do not want to be
questioned. You want to come and go as you
please, including in romance. Given that
freedom, you may not go far; but there is a need
to believe that you have it. You also want the
freedom to change your mind—even if it means
reneging on commitments. And while you enjoy
debate, you dislike actual conflict; so you tend
to sidestep issues rather than deal with them
truthfully. And your arguments are so
persuasive that you may even convince yourself.
It is important to recognize the line between
adaptability and unreliability.
treasure: The ease in which you come up with
ideas and communicate with people.
Avoid letting adaptability turn into
unreliability and honestly say what you mean
instead of talking your way out of uncomfortable
