An intimate relationship with another GEMINI means inability to recharge each other’s energy field. There is a tendency to blend and “act as one element.” Unless there are other strong energizing elements present, there can be a slow starvation of the nervous system. Conflict need not be present.
Attraction to others attuned to an element one lacks usually does not form the basis for a lasting relationship. One or both end up saying, “We are too different.”
Relationships can be either “too intense” or “devitalizing” according to the energy combinations of both persons. A strong reason for knowing the Soul Maps of those with whom you have close personal relationships. We can work positively with what we know.
Sleeping together merges the energy fields and can dramatically affect each person’s state of health, for good or ill. If in an intimate relationship with a neutral or incompatible Sun Sign, sleeping in separate beds/bedrooms can be very beneficial. (Stephen Arroyo, Astrology, Psychology, & the Four Elements)
EVOLUTIONARY SPIRAL: (According to Alan Oken, Soul-Centered Astrology) – as we grow holistically, we spiral upward from Personality-Centered >>> Awakening to Soul-Personality relationship >>> Soul-Centered Individual.
Functioning on the totally Personality-Centered Level – GEMINI moves with no purpose or plan in mind. The instinctual mind is in charge, often to the point of GEMINI being unaware of what he thinks. GEMINI is motivated by the desire for experience. Within relationships, GEMINI is interested in how everything relates to self. The comprehension of a “shared interchange” is totally missing. Every movement, every person is “viewed” as a means of furthering one’s own agenda. Life’s lessons will begin to teach the GEMINI, on this level, the true meaning of inter-relatedness. But, for the most part, the Totally Personality-Centered GEMINI will view life through a “me versus them” perspective. Though the awareness of duality is dawning, there is still no understanding that mutual harmony and fulfillment is possible.
Awakening to the Soul-Personality Relationship – at this level, the lessons of orientation within relationships are a major factor. Awareness of others is developing, as is an understanding of relationships that do not involve the self. The mind seeks to comprehend relatedness; the desire to accumulate knowledge arises. Intelligence moves from instinctual to creative, from subjective to objective. GEMINI, on this level, will grow beyond thinking his opinions constitute an absolute philosophy of the world. GEMINI develops the urge to share what is possible to be known.
GEMINI begins to build the Rainbow Bridge—that link of conscious awareness between the soul and personality. Though an essential development for all zodiac energies, this link (Rainbow Bridge) with the soul is even more vital for GEMINI. Without the solid anchoring of consciousness on the soul level, GEMINI experiences a diffusion and scattering of interests, desires, and aspirations. Many of the crises in life now come as a result of mixed intent and crossed purposes within interpersonal exchanges. This occurs while GEMINI learns to harmonize self with the variety of persons in his environment. GEMINI will likely move between two sets of people: one set representing the desires of the lower nature, the other signifying aspirations of a higher nature. Vacillation is characteristic until GEMINI can learn to integrate the vibrations of VENUS (rules soul level of GEMINI) into his lifestyle.
Soul-Centered Individual – attuning to the vibrations of Venus, GEMINI’s soul-centered planetary ruler, allows a vastly different individual to emerge. At this level, GEMINI is being used as a conscious vehicle for creating harmonious linkages in our world. On the soul level, VENUS functions as the most highly evolved of planetary energies. GEMINI now acts as the channel through which the 2nd RAY of Love/Wisdom can manifest. (The Star Constellation of GEMINI acts as a vehicle for the transmission of energy from the 2nd RAY star, Sirius, into our solar system.) GEMINI becomes an agent for the Spiritual Hierarchy, an intermediary of Love & Light. GEMINI is now aware of the spiritual implications of his actions. GEMINI makes the shift from total absorption in self to a universal orientation that allows him to be a diplomat for peace and mutual understanding. GEMINI has learned to synthesize knowledge into directed movement and purpose. Attunement to the soul allows GEMINI to control the mind.
The I THINK, THEREFORE I AM sign is thirsty for mental stimulation. The dual mind of GEMINI can easily see both sides of a question or situation. GEMINI is friendly, possesses a good sense of humor, wit, and the capacity to speak with eloquence. He is versatile and thinks quickly “on his feet.” Communication is GEMINI’s forte; the larger the variety of people with whom he communicates, the better he likes it. GEMINI can be an interesting conversationalist, especially if he has learned to focus and delve more deeply into topics of discussion. GEMINI is perceptive, intuitive, and logical. He thrives on new activities, new places, new people. GEMINI is emotionally detached; he uses his mind rather than his heart. Logic and reason are GEMINI’s guidelines; he likes to analyze. There is excellent finger dexterity. GEMINI’s theme song is “Don’t Fence Me In.” Though he wants to feel important to someone, a marriage that ties GEMINI down is likely to be an unhappy one. GEMINI needs the freedom to come and go as he pleases. Learning is a major part of GEMINI’s journey. GEMINI knows intuitively that whatever is needed at the moment will manifest. GEMINI can be extremely creative and perform several tasks efficiently and simultaneously. GEMINI is inventive, seeing links between two seemingly unrelated things or events that result in problems that puzzle others. GEMINI possesses an excellent mind.
NEGATIVE CHARACTERISTICS: (Remember that as you focus on developing your positive characteristics, the negative ones tend to disappear. Those who express in negative ways are frustrated, consciously or unconsciously, because they are not being who they truly are.)
GEMINI is an extremely restless, impatient, and can be critical of others. GEMINI may be shallow in knowledge while believing he is well-versed. GEMINI may seek so many facts before making a decision that he fails to make the decision. It is a dual sign that can be contradictory and unstable. Control of the mind is absolutely essential; otherwise, GEMINI is in danger of a split personality or nervous breakdown. The nervous system is highly geared. GEMINI’s preoccupation with self causes multiple problems within the lower bodies. GEMINI must learn to care for the physical body, which can be in need of strengthening.
A GEMINI INCARNATION offers the opportunity to learn control of the mind through attunement to the soul and its desires. GEMINI learns through a variety of experiences, people, and knowledge. The GEMINI INCARNATION is a most important one because GEMINI is attuned to the dualities in life, accepts their existence, and learns to rise above the plane of duality, via the Rainbow Bridge, into the One. GEMINI, in turn, is to communicate that knowledge with others. Synthesis of the myriad facts, sought out by GEMINI, into a meaningful whole that can be shared with others is a major goal for GEMINI.
GEMINI AS YOUR ASCENDANT
Be sure to check your chart to see what your Ascendant is.
The zodiac energy on the ASCENDANT is the energy that the public beholds. We also look at the world through our ASCENDANT. GEMINI ASCENDANT, on the mundane level, sees a world offering myriad opportunities—all of which GEMINI ASCENDANT desires to experience. GEMINI ASCENDANT will look younger than his actual chronological age.
In Soul-centered astrology, the ASCENDANT indicates the soul’s purpose in physical embodiment.
GEMINI ASCENDANT reveals that the soul is to be activated through the 2nd RAY of Love/Wisdom. The soul has incarnated to learn integration of love and wisdom into all that he thinks, speaks, and does. The 2nd RAY represents the cohesive force in the universe; it is the RAY of the Hidden Christ. GEMINI ASCENDANT is to assist in instilling cooperation between various persons and to exhibit the urge to serve others. 2nd RAY is the RAY of the Teacher who teaches inclusion, not exclusion. GEMINI ASCENDANT is to learn how to heal through attunement with the soul. 2nd RAY persons are the peacemakers for our world. Because the 2nd RAY is a magnetic force, GEMINI ASCENDANT will need to learn how to set limits on the number of persons he responds to in their call for help. GEMINI ASCENDANT is adaptable and versatile, with a love of beauty, culture, and refinement. The soul purpose is to learn to concentrate and direct his energy with clarity and intention.
THE HOUSE IN WHICH VENUS—AS THE SOUL LEVEL RULER OF GEMINI—IS FOUND will indicate the area of life’s experiences in which the lessons of the 2nd RAY of Love/Wisdom will tend to manifest. Since VENUS CHANNELS THE 5TH RAY OF CONCRETE KNOWLEDGE, many of the lessons will involve using the Rainbow Bridge to tap into the higher wisdom and synthesize this abstract wisdom into a meaningful concrete whole that can be communicated with love, to the world.
MOON IN GEMINI
Be sure to check your chart to see where your Moon is located.
The MOON reveals the personality as it is displayed in our reactions to the events within our daily lives. It also reveals much that is hidden within our subconscious minds.
On the soul-centered level, the MOON reveals habit patterns that must be overcome or transformed in order to advance in spiritual maturity. This struggle to overcome the negative tendencies revealed by the MOON is the “cross” we bear (Alan Oken). The MOON reminds us of the negative habit patterns formed in prior incarnations that created the karma we brought into this incarnation.
MOON IN GEMINI indicates that soul growth will occur as the individual learns to relate cooperatively within personal relationships. In prior lifetimes, GEMINI MOON has been thoughtless of others, viewing them as simply objects within his environment. He has been two-faced, gossipy, and contradictory. GEMINI MOON has viewed his body as frail, though he made no effort to learn how to increase its vitality. GEMINI MOON has been so scattered in his activities that he wasted much precious Earth-plane time and energy. A major lesson for GEMINI MOON will be groundedness and structuring of activities toward an intent or purpose. There will often be karmic relationships with siblings (this is also true for GEMINI SUN). GEMINI MOON is to learn to communicate the 2nd RAY energy of Love and Wisdom.
THE FOLLOWING APPLIES TO ALL THREE OF THE ABOVE—SUN, ASCENDANT, & MOON IN GEMINI.
HEALTH & WELL BEING:
The GEMINI/SAGITTARIUS POLARITIES work together to bring a positive regulation of energy flow within the physical body.
Achieving a balance between the qualities of GEMINI & SAGITTARIUS, thereby transforming negative habit patterns, will assist in maintaining good health. For examples, achieving a balance between:
GEMINI’s attunement to the conscious mind – and – SAGITTARIUS’ attunement to the superconscious mind.
GEMINI’s lack of moral perception – and – SAGITTARIUS’ moral imperatives.
GEMINI’s short-term decisions – and – SAGITTARIUS’ consciousness of the long-term consequences.
GEMINI’s myriad facts – and – SAGITTARIUS’ wisdom.
GEMINI’s lack of attunement to the physical body – and – SAGITTARIUS’ love of outdoor, physical exercise.
Failure to recharge one’s Sun Sign energy results in depletion, irritability, and increased vulnerability to physical and emotional dis-eases. For GEMINI, recharging the Sun energy is especially important to the nervous system. The element of one’s Sun Sign is the fuel needed to feel alive. It is the source of vitality and power, the resource for coping with stress and challenges.
GEMINI recharges by: 1) Regular contact with people of like mind, social involvements that allow expression of their ideas, and a vocation that offers intellectual freedom and stimulation. 2) Close association with other air types of people—Libra and Aquarius. 3) Getting lots of fresh, clean air. The thin, highly electric air in the mountains is especially rejuvenating. GEMINI lungs need plenty of oxygen.
CONFLICT RESOLUTION: GEMINI tends to rise above conflict and float around it. Though GEMINI may later resent the person or situation involved, they will tend to handle the problem gracefully.
GEMINI’s life long search is for a “twin” who will offer mental understanding. GEMINI needs to relate as well as create. GEMINI is on a quest. Though he may not know what that quest is, GEMINI knows there is something out there that one must be unencumbered to do. Relationships that GEMINI perceives as “encumbering” will, therefore, tend to be blamed for the lack of freedom to go on the quest.
