Sun in Gemini

(The Sun is in Gemini from approximately May 21 to June 20, depending on the year).

With the Sun in Gemini, the urge for self-expression is strong. These natives are often just as interested in collecting information as they are in sharing it. Curious to a fault, Geminis have a finger in every pie. Solar Geminis are flexible and changeable people. Their ability to adapt quickly to new situations generally gains them plenty of friends and social contacts. Usually quite clever and witty, Geminis enjoy intellectual conversations and they are easily bored if they are not getting enough mental stimulation.

Often quite adept at fitting in with others, Geminis easily adopt the moods of those around them. They are friends to people from all walks of life, and are not easily intimidated. Their ability to detach themselves can make Geminis very objective and observant, but a little difficult to get close to. Although they often have many friends, intimacy doesn't come as easily to Solar Geminis. It can be difficult to know what Gemini really feels at any given moment. They are often very impressionable and scattered. There is usually a nervous air to Geminis that can make more personal characters a little uneasy. It is not always intuitive to trust Geminis to be loyal or to keep secrets.

Geminis often flit about, moving quickly and keeping busy every step of the way. Many people with this position of the Sun have gained quite a bit of knowledge in their lifetimes, but they don't often possess specialized knowledge. This is because Geminis have relatively short attention spans. Restlessness is especially common with this position of the Sun. Usually quite affable, Geminis enjoy the "light" side of life. This tendency to take things lightly makes them quite pleasing to be around; but it can be maddening to people seeking support on the deeper issues in life.

Geminis are both interesting and interested. Their wit can be dazzling and their changeability dizzying. At the very least, Geminis will seldom bore you.

Sun in Gemini: Gemini people are born into the most personal of the air signs. They wonder where they fit in the scheme of things. They have lots of 'me', 'I' and 'my' in their consciousness, and their life experience requires the incorporation of self into a larger universe. Geminis are raised in a father-dominated atmosphere. Communication between the parents is difficult for these children to understand, because disagreements between the parents are solved with words and not with deeds. Since young children don't understand what words mean, they are uncertain as to what the fuss is all about. But, they do know something important is going on because the parents are upset by these strange words. Gemini children learn to use words well, for they are good imitators; but often they don't know what the words mean. Because Geminis find communication intriguing, they pursue either the world of conversation or the world of books. The media becomes important to them, and therefore they make great contributions in that area.

Geminis are explorers of the intellect, and are naturally very curious people. Their curiosity is manifested in several ways, depending on the childhood environment. If little or no education is available, or if there are too many Air signs in the chart, they want to talk: they learn by talking, they entertain by talking, and they like a lively and entertaining social life. Each person they meet is a new source of information or entertainment. As they seek each new experience, they forget the old sources. This can cause conflict in their love relationships because their partner may resent all the new people. If the background was more intellectual, or placed more stress on education, Geminis will explore the world of the intellect, and pursue the study of language and / or education. In addition, they are enthusiastic about sharing information and social activities with all kinds of new and interesting people. However, the more educated Geminis have the same problem as those who aren't: they have trouble maintaining interest in an ongoing relationship.

The parents of Gemini children have some interesting reactions to each other in terms of body language. The impact of the words they react to fascinates Geminis, who feel left out. Geminis often try to recreate these situations in adult life and in their relationships. They need verbal interchanges with their mates. This interchange can start with harmless banter and work its way into bickering. If the mate of a Gemini doesn't understand the Gemini need to see a reaction (body language) to words, and if the mate doesn't respond appropriately to this situation, terrible verbal fights can ensue, leaving lots of hurt feelings and misunderstandings. After the fight, Gemini feels wonderful, but the mate is ready to pack; and, after a long series of these interchanges, the Gemini may find he's lost a partner.

One of the relationship difficulties for Geminis stems from a fear or a disinterest in working through problems to some compatible compromise or solution. Since they are social at heart, it's easier for them to run off and explore the new and different rather than to work through a serious situation with an 'old' partner. This type of Gemini needs to learn to work through disagreements without becoming resentful.

The Gemini female child admires her father, who is very often a respectable professional. Or, if Daddy is not a professional of some sort, he usually is known for something he accomplished that was special. She wants to be special just as he is, but there is a resentment directed toward him along with the admiration. At some time in her childhood when it was important that she have his attention, he ignored her. And so, she brings her resentment for her father into her adult life.

Because Gemini is a mental sign, it isn't always easy for the female to incorporate her emotional needs into her professional life. She sometimes looks at her body and physical needs as alien to her. She tends to select a mate based on his ability to mentally stimulate her, and she wants companionship with a partner almost as much as the Sagittarian female does. She loves the company of men, because she feels she can share her ideas with them; being born in a masculine polarity, she wants to feed her intellect. Because of this polarity, she may reject her feminine self. The less evolved Gemini type avoids the company of women because she basically doesn't respect the position of woman. As she becomes more conscious, she begins to cherish her relationships with women who are interested in mental development as she is. She may even find conversations with women more stimulating than the ones she has with men, for there are no sexual overtones.

The Gemini male is known as a gadabout. He's difficult to own because he's always off exploring the universe. He rarely opens up with men, and seems to enjoy the company of women more. He likes to flirt. Because he doesn't really trust other men, he will develop few male friendships. This mistrust seems to come from his relationship with his father.

During childhood, he wants to be with Daddy, but, like his Gemini sister, is in some way rejected by Dad at a time when he trusts him and needs him - hence Gemini's suspicion of men. When he picks a partner, he chooses a companion or a woman with whom he is friendly, for he seldom bases his serious relationships on sex alone. He is emotionally attached to his mother; he used her as an extra support when he was young, so he often picks a super strong woman he can 'hide behind' or depend upon. An exceptionally handsome Gemini male seldom chooses to be with a 'pretty' woman; he tends to pick a reliable type.

It seems that the parents handle situations in the early childhood of Gemini children with an overemphasis on the intellectual. The child is rewarded for doing 'things', and doesn't really understand why he is being rewarded. Adult life situations are not clearly understood, for hearty emotional responses were handled with words by the parents. The child matures only to learn that other people cope with emotional situations differently. Geminis may not understand what others want from them. Feelings of resentment may accompany responsibilities, for they don't know what is expected, or they may feel that their intellectual freedom is being restricted. The Gemini group worships 'freedom of the mind'.

In personal relationships, Geminis feel misunderstood, for the emotion called 'love' is conveyed to another in an intellectual manner. Words are more important than gestures, but the other eleven signs don't respond to this kind of a demonstration of love very easily. When a Gemini says he loves you, he may love you with all his heart, but he has difficulty demonstrating that love. First of all, his intense feelings may be completely different in the morning! Second, he may feel threatened when you tell him that he is not acting as though he loves you. Neither the male nor the female wants to be put on the spot where love is concerned. Love is a lofty ideal that can be thought about, fantasized about, dreamed about. For the Gemini, the words 'I love you' might be a sufficient demonstration of affection, and might not engender another period of affection for six months. As Gemini matures, he will learn that he has to give more than mere words. And here comes the test, for Geminis often feel that the needs of the loved one involve testing, and they resent it.

As far as career responsibilities are concerned, Geminis tend to get into the water over their heads. A basic difficulty affecting both sexes concerns direct and honest communication. It is easier to assume what the Gemini thinks the other party wants to hear than to handle delicate situations directly. The Gemini has a reputation for being two-faced, but the double personality has a basis in the early childhood environment. In order to be well-received, Gemini assumes that others won't accept what he has to say. So he changes it. Feelings can be hurt unnecessarily, and Geminis may get themselves an untrustworthy reputation. When this kind of behavior is applied in career situations, the Gemini may get fired.

It seems that Gemini people don't understand where they fit in. They keep looking for a secure place in the universe, and this need for security is often the cause of the double talk that takes place. A dilemma is caused when the need to belong conflicts with apprehension about being restricted, for Geminis don't want to be 'beholden'. The conflict is intensified because they may not understand directions or instructions that go along with handling job responsibilities. Rather than asking how a particular job should be handled, they tend to make corporate decisions on their own. They often feel that asking questions will indicate to fellow employees that they don't have the qualifications for the job.

Sometimes Geminis even change their résumés. One client of mine applied for a job with a phony degree. Another obtained a prospectus from a large company, learned the names of several important men on the Board of Directors, and then went to the personnel department with a 'verbal' recommendation from them. The people in the department didn't confirm the recommendation because it came from a VIP. Gemini worked for the company for two years before his action was discovered! Geminis minimize or maximize any life situation based on the interests of the moment. The most common manifestation of this ability is the 'Gemini time system'. They tend to be late or early. If they enjoy what they are doing, time flies. If not, it drags. If they are on time, they're probably bored with what they were doing before they came. It is not uncommon for Geminis to be totally surprised that they are two hours late for dinner.

Sun in Gemini: The Gemini personality is associated with intellect, mind and communication; and words are very important to you; you may possess literary ability and greatly enjoy reading and writing. You have an inquiring mind, being eager to accumulate knowledge and information through study, especially relating to factual and detailed topics. You tend to be curious about most things, and will search for intellectual security in the world. You need to be active and busy, loving change and variety which offers excitement to your life. You will be mainly focused in your mind, living in a world of fascinating ideas, although if over-familiarity occurs, then a lack of new stimulation can lead to a bored, restless mind beginning to look for the next interesting theme.

Gemini can be sympathetic and sensitive to others, having a quick perception and understanding of people, but this can be overshadowed by a self-centered attitude. Your temperament may be essentially idealistic, tending to solve world problems by producing theories, which may fail to be applied in practice. There may be some problems with self-discipline, but if you can overcome these, you can be quite creative in arts or business.

You are socially adaptable, being popular and easy company, and can be an interesting and entertaining conversationalist. You are effective at self-expression, and use your fluent communication both to persuade and to gain respect from others. Friends are important to provide variety and mental stimulation, and you are likely to be attracted towards artistic and intellectual types. You do not like to be tied to anywhere, preferring changes of scenery and people in order to renew and revitalize your interest.

Your reactions to life can be a little erratic, varying according to your moods (Gemini Twins), and you can be quite highly strung if life is not working out for you, perhaps becoming depressed. You are not a naturally tranquil sort of person, needing to be almost compulsively active; there can be periods of experiencing anxiety, indecision, impatience and irritability.

You prefer tidiness, cleanliness and order; and you may prefer to work from home, where you attempt to create comfortable, peaceful surroundings, and to which you often need to retreat from the world for short periods of self-renewal. You may try to create a balance in your life between action, socializing and creativity, as you are suited towards application in several areas of life at once. The sort of work that may suit you includes research, investigation, and factual content, scientific or literary.

You love life and can be erratic; and you prefer to retain independence and freedom. You will marry more for mental compatibility than for physical attraction alone, and will require a partner to be able to handle the practical everyday obligations and also be mentally stimulating, leaving you relatively free. You also enjoy contact with children, especially the aspects of play and their enquiring minds.

You feel a need to maintain your individuality and separateness from others, and can resist any forms of imposition by others; you may rebel against the status quo and established attitudes, but as you grow older will realize the value of co-operation as vital in life to create harmony and peace. You apply logic and rationality to religious doctrines, which leads you towards non-conformist or agnostic attitudes. You enjoy sharing ideas and information with others, and are tolerant of alternative viewpoints and ideas, feeling little need to impose your view on others, but just to exchange them. It is essential to clarify your life direction, and you may experiment with several occupations and lifestyles, displaying your versatility and adaptability. You can enjoy travel, art, music, and using your hands creatively.

Sun in Gemini: For people with Sun in Gemini, communication is of utmost importance. You are fond of talking, writing, reading - anything that involves the written or spoken word. As a result, you may pursue a profession or avocation which involves some form of communication, such as writing, teaching, public speaking, advertising, sales, data processing, talking on the phone, or telecommunications. Many writers have their Suns in Gemini.

Mentally-oriented, you enjoy discussing ideas with others, and respect intelligence. For you, knowledge is power. The written word has great appeal for you, and you are probably an avid reader. You are also eager to acquire as much information as possible, and want to share what you know with everyone you meet.

A life-long student, you never tire of learning new things, and might enjoy attending adult education classes, taking mail-order courses and going to lectures. Your tendency, however, is to collect facts and tidbits of data without integrating them into the larger picture, so that you possess lots of information but no true knowledge. You gather so many disassociated bits and pieces, facts and figures, that you frequently mix them up, confusing words, events and people in the style of Mrs. Malaprop.

Your interests are many and diverse; almost anything will attract your attention for a brief time. However, you don't have the perseverance to stick with one thing for long. One week you're fascinated with scuba diving; the next it's Tarot; then stamp collecting, weaving, oil painting, etc.. Truly the jack of all trades, master of none, you are eager to try everything, but rarely become proficient at anything.

Insatiably curious, you want to know and experience as much as possible. You have trouble limiting yourself to one job, one relationship, one residence or even one book at a time, and usually have several things going on simultaneously. You might switch jobs on a regular basis, or have a primary occupation and one or more avocations. You may engage in a series of brief relationships or several concurrent ones; at the very least, you are something of a flirt, and never stop looking around even if you don't act on your fantasies. You can watch TV, cook dinner, hem a skirt and do a crossword puzzle while you talk on the phone. You're afraid you might miss out on something more interesting if you devote yourself to a single pursuit or activity. At times, you can seem a bit schizophrenic, and may have trouble getting the divergent sides of your personality to work together harmoniously. You also tend to scatter your energies and spread yourself too thinly.

A consummate shopper, you love to get a bargain, and pride yourself on never paying full price. You know the price of everything, but the value of nothing, and would rather buy a dozen inexpensive items of poor quality than a single good one. You aren't a bit tipper, and usually ask for separate checks when you go out to lunch.

Extremely friendly, you enjoy companionship and probably have plenty of friends and associates. Usually you are cheerful and good-natured, and are always available for a movie, a card game, a party or a good chat. You don't like being alone or still, and keep busy doing things, running from place to place or socializing - anything to avoid looking at yourself deeply. Not at all introspective or reflective, you don't understand your own motivations or those of others, and can be rather shallow and naive.

Gemini rules the hands; and, consequently, you might be quite dexterous. Perhaps you are skilled at drawing, woodworking, playing a musical instrument, typing, sewing, or some other handcraft.

Sun in Gemini: Geminis have a reputation for being friendly, clever, but not able to stick to anything or anyone for long, although in reality this is not so at all. Many Geminis have a bad start in life, often because their families drift apart, so when it comes to forming a family of their own, they make a great effort to keep the household together. They will put up with a difficult relationship for longer than most, and will always keep in touch with their children, even if this is from a distance. They tend to stick to their main job although they may have subsidiary interests which bring in money, but all their jobs must offer them a variety of tasks and an opportunity to meet new people. Geminis usually have the sense to choose the kind of work which does not require deep thought or long periods of slog. They make great telephonists for example, because they can cope with a busy switchboard and they are rarely fazed by machinery.

One genuine Gemini fault is obsessiveness. I have never seen this mentioned in any other astrology book, but I have known a number of Geminis in my time, and have seen this kind of behavior quite regularly. When something sets off this behavior, they can become amazingly unbalanced. One example is my old school friend Sherry, whose husband left her and her daughter for another woman when she was thirty-seven years old. Sherry wept and wailed, became hysterical and stayed like it for a couple of years. Even when she later began to make a new and more interesting life for herself, she never forgot or forgave her husband's treachery.

Geminis take an interest in many things, but there is always one subject, one job, one interest (maybe in the background) which they tend to know thoroughly. Explaining anything to a Gemini can be frustrating because they only want to deal with the overview and they become impatient with details or logical processes. For example, if you are teaching a Geminian how to use a computer, don't bother to go through all the steps in detail; just give them an overview and stay around so that they can ask for help when they need more information. It is sometimes hard to talk to a Gemini because they ask questions and then don't bother to listen to the answer. These subjects are not interested in the moods, needs and behavior of other people because they are so totally involved with themselves. They are restless and uncertain about life because they feel that the grass is always greener somewhere else, and are often mentally on their way out of the field which they are in and looking for the next piece of grass.

Geminis are witty and they often have a very funny sense of humor which helps them get through difficult situations. Their ability to move on quickly to a new interest or a new person also helps them overcome bad times. These subjects are noted for being excellent communicators, but they may be better at connecting people with each other in the sense of an agent or a broadcaster than actually talking (and listening) to people themselves. In a social setting, a Gemini will chat away nineteen-to-the-dozen whilst at the same time their eyes roam around the room, taking in everything that is going on and analyzing it with some other part of the brain.

Sun in Gemini: I recently read an excellent book about people working in the stock market, where the combination of a fast and active brain, a talent for selling and the ability to work at great speed strikes me as making it a place in which many Geminis would feel at home. A Gemini friend of mine who works for a merchant bank told me recently that nine out of their eleven accountants are Sun in Gemini subjects. Bankers and dealers need to be hard-hearted, and this type of unfeeling Gemini is ideal for the job.

As parents, Geminis will go to great lengths to provide their children with an education. They genuinely want them to succeed, but they may find it hard to express affection towards them. Geminis are not terribly keen on touching. Their sensitive nerves seem to reach out into their auras, and they may feel uncomfortable cuddling a child, just as they dislike being grabbed or rubbed against by casual acquaintances. These nervy people can be quite difficult to live with or to understand, but their sense of humor, quick minds and interest in everything make them excellent company. Another great plus is their non-hostile approach and their genuinely non-judgmental attitude to other people's foibles and failings.

Whatever their age, Geminis are always in vogue; and they are often real trendsetter where fashion is concerned. Typically, their trim figures help them to look good, whatever style they choose to follow.

The typical Gemini is small and thin, with a slightly sallow skin color, and mousy hair. Non-white Geminis are also small and neat, but will obviously vary in coloring. Some Geminis put on a lot of weight as they get older, and begin to resemble that famous Gemini, Queen Victoria. All of the female Geminis whom I have come across sensibly use tints to make their hair a more interesting color, often preferring to make themselves either very blond or jet black. Both sexes are fussy about their clothes and their appearance, and usually look very good indeed, preferring rather formal clothes to the casual look. Many smoke quite heavily in a rather nervous and 'twitchy' manner. Even if they are sitting down and reading a paper, they always look as if they are on the point of getting up and rushing away somewhere.

Weak spots for health are the hands, arms, shoulders, and the upper respiratory tract. Some Geminis have considerable problems with bones, while others never seem to get ill at all. Asthma is a possibility, as is a whole range of auto-immune diseases such as eczema, psoriasis, migraine, rheumatism and colitis. Nerves play a large part in the health of this sign; and this may underlie most of their ailments. A number of Geminis suffer from arrhythmia (a fast or uneven heartbeat) whilst being otherwise healthy.

Geminis are the communicators of the zodiac, and can be found working in the media, in information technology (computers, etc.), as sales representatives, and as teachers. They make excellent secretaries, telephonists and technical writers; and some of them write books for a living. Quite a number of Geminis enjoy working in hospitals, but they are usually more interested in the clerical aspects of such work than the purely medical area. Others are interested in the way other people think, which draws them towards psychology and astrology. Sport interests Geminis, especially the more prestigious kinds of sport such as tennis and golf. Paradoxically, one type or work which is rarely mentioned in connection with this sign is accountancy, because Geminis are traditionally supposed to be at home with words rather than figures. I've met quite a number of Gemini broadcasters who excel at chat show interviewing.

Gemini hobbies include reading, writing, talking on the 'phone, organizing young people in sporting or outdoor activities, and driving for pleasure. These people enjoy games such as chess, Trivial Pursuit or cards; and many have the kind of creative hobby which allows them to use their hands. Light engineering or carpentry interest Geminis, and many spend hours solving problems associated with craftwork or model-making.

Geminis are not notably money-minded, but they like it for the freedom it brings. These subjects don't enjoy being beholden to anyone, and will strive to gain financial independence, even under the most difficult of circumstances. Gemini women seem to attach themselves to wealthy men or to encourage their husbands to become wealthy, after which they help them to spend their money on classy and elegant goods. Geminis rarely have large sums of money put by, but they are never broke either. If financial trouble strikes, they will take two or even three jobs at once in order to solve the problem.

Geminis love shopping, and usually have large and very up-to-date wardrobes. The vogue for smart sportswear is right up their street. They usually look and dress younger than their actual age. Their homes are kept nicely, but not usually by them! They prefer to employ someone else to clean for them and, if this is not possible, they will either do what they have to do or ignore the whole business altogether. As far as décor and furniture are concerned, Geminis will buy the best that they can afford and then live with it for years afterwards. All the Geminis I have ever come across would rather lay out in the garden soaking up the sun or snuggle into a nice, comfy armchair in front of the television than do housework. Many Geminis love animals, and have at least a couple of dogs around the place. This mercurial sign loves to be on the move; therefore, a fast and efficient vehicle is a must for them.

Geminis prefer small, sporty cars but won't say 'no' to a large and luxurious vehicle if the opportunity to own one comes their way. If all they can afford is an ancient rust-bucket, then this would be far preferable to being reduced to using public transport. Geminis love holidays in sunny, fashionable places where they can laze about in comfort.

Geminis are relaters rather than loners, who will go halfway to meet a partner wherever possible. Relationship problems arise from their moodiness and restlessness. They can be dissatisfied with their lot even when it is very good, because they have an implicit belief that the grass must be a good deal greener elsewhere. To be honest, most Geminis are fairly stable and, as long as their relationship is not boring, they will put up with quite a lot. Geminis are quite mercenary, and will stay in a relationship if it gives them the standard of living that they require. These subjects need to live in style, but they are prepared to work hard and earn the necessary money to pay for this themselves. However, they cannot be persuaded to hand over all their hard-earned cash to the rest of the family while they, themselves, go without. Geminis can only function comfortably by being well-dressed, well-fed and in the process of looking forward to an entertaining outing of some kind. This sign has a reputation for unfaithfulness but I don't think that Geminis are any more likely than any other sign to cheat on a partner.

As a child, the Gemini may be unhappy and very anxious to grow up and leave behind the misery of childhood. This is strange when one considers the Gemini's evergreen youthfulness when he eventually becomes an adult. Gemini children either do very well at school or drop out altogether. They are quick and clever, and they enjoy and appreciate any toy which occupies their minds and keeps freedom at bay. Some Gemini children are excellent at sports, while others have wonderful mechanical ability; all of them learn early and very quickly, but they become bored with the routine of school work and homework, and out of tune with the kind of teamwork and petty discipline in school life. If either a relative or a teacher takes the time to show a little approval to these children, they really blossom. Unfortunately, this rarely happens, and they have to do their blossoming much later in life.

Geminis are never boring; they love to chat, but not all of them are good listeners. They are bright and intelligent, and usually well-informed. Some are intellectual, while others have street credibility, but none are fools, except to themselves at times. Neither sex is very domesticated; and, knowing this, Geminis usually make the kinds of arrangements which allow their homes to run smoothly without their having to do much themselves. They equip their homes with every kind of labor-saving gadgetry, and also hire someone to come in and do some, if not all, of the cleaning. Many Gemini women marry domesticated men who happily swap roles. Neither sex is particularly demanding in a relationship. These subjects won't complain if a meal is not up to scratch; and they don't need a perfectly-run household. What they do need, however, is a bit of peace and quiet. Gemini nerves are sensitive, and they can become extremely upset by hostility or anger; so if they have had a bad day at work, they need to come back to a peaceful atmosphere. [There are a few rogue Geminis who seem to thrive in an argumentative atmosphere, but these are rare.] These subjects need love and affection, but they cannot take smothering, jealousy or tyranny; and too much emotion in a partner unnerves them. If badly treated, they will slip away and find themselves a nicer partner, probably as a result of getting to know someone at work.

Gemini faults are supposed to be flirtatiousness, restlessness and an inability to stay put in a home or a relationship. Geminis are flirtatious, but only in circumstances where this is both allowable and appropriate. They may start off by flirting with a new face at a party; but if the person they are chatting up turns out to be interesting, they soon forget all about flirting and get into a serious conversation. Geminis can be critical and sarcastic, but usually only when they have been hurt. In some cases, their wit can be a little too cutting for comfort; but it is meant to amuse rather than to hurt. Gemini people are much warmer and more considerate then they are given credit for; and, although young Geminis can be a bit thoughtless, they are usually quite reasonable when they have gained a bit more experience of life.

Geminis need to keep their minds active, and can become so absorbed in a hobby or interest that they begin to neglect their partners, although this is usually quite unintentional. One lady who filled in one of my questionnaires said that her Gemini husband sometimes put his computer before her. One nice thing about Geminis is that they will try to be accommodating to others in the family, and they even make good step¬parents. however, they can be very self-absorbed, vain, and inclined to nag and worry about unimportant or transient matters. Geminis find decisions hard to cope with, and even panic when faced with a problem; although they soon get over this, and set their clever minds to solving the problem.

Another trait which may or may not endear them to their loved-ones is their absolute cleanliness and fussiness about their clothes and appearance. Geminis also have an irritating habit of concentrating on something which interests them for hours on end, and then never touching it again. They appear to lack sympathy with people who are ill, which is due to the fact that they are unnerved by illness and don't know what to do for the best. This is balanced by an ability to ignore or to shake off their own ailments; and they hardly ever take time off from work when sick. Geminis can go on and on about little things, and they do try to cross bridges before they come to them. However, as long as they are not forced to live with a person who is a wet blanket or an absolute bore, and as long as they are offered enough stimulation, they are not unreasonable partners.

Geminis are quite highly sexed. This may seem a surprising remark, because many astrologers traditionally comment on their need for mental rather than physical stimulation and their coolness where it comes to such matters. They may not be the most affectionate of signs, partly because they were rarely, if ever, cuddled as children. However, if they find themselves with a loving and affectionate partner, they blossom into very cuddly and loving partners themselves.

Geminis are extremely curious, and not overly embarrassed by unusual sexual situations, as long as these can occur in private. Being analytical, Geminis can distance themselves from their feelings and enjoy sex in the same way that others enjoy good music or a good book. Geminis like to experiment, and they love variety, which, added to their changing moods, makes them excellent lovers. If a Sun in Gemini subject has the planet Venus in the neighboring sign of Taurus, sensuality is added to their need for mental stimulation; while, if the Geminian has planets in nearby Cancer, he may be surprisingly shy. In a loving relationship where the Geminian can relax and allow his tensions to drain away, he or she can make a very rewarding life-long partner. If an affair is on the agenda, then the Gemini would make the most amusing, and possibly slightly kinky, lover.

Geminis are friendly but not always terribly close to those who are around them. They make good in-laws and step-relatives because they don't interfere. However, if a relative takes it upon himself to dictate to the Geminian, he will be given very short shrift. Friendly but distant is the way the Geminian likes to be. He will not abandon elderly parents or other relatives, and he will do all he can to see that they are comfortable and well cared for; but he cannot live with cantankerous, sick or needy relatives, and will not allow himself to be pushed into such a situation. Geminis are reasonably good parents, but they may find it hard to cuddle their children because they themselves were not cuddled enough when young. They will do all they possibly can to ensure that their children have the very best education, and they will surround youngsters with every kind of educational toy or aid. They may be a bit too pushy, because they are competitive and they want their children to compete as well. A Gemini parent will not hesitate in sending a child away to school if he thinks that it is for the best. Indeed, he finds his children much easier to deal with if they are at a distance from him for part of the year.

Sun in Gemini: Versatility is the hallmark of Sun sign Geminis. This is the first dual sign of the zodiac, and its subjects find it essential to pursue several courses of action at once. They also need to communicate on all levels. Their potential can be expressed in many ways, but especially through the media. This need for communication is so strong that they'll telephone their local radio station with comments on every conceivable subject and will even chat to someone in a bus line in no-one else is available at the time.

Superficiality is the worst Geminian fault and should be controlled - these people tend to know a little about many subjects, and sometimes fail to acquire truly deep knowledge of the things that really interest them. An ability to quickly assimilate knowledge can work well under certain conditions, but it is important for this type to realize the necessity for deep thought and seriously based opinions on some matters.

A tendency to inconsistency is another problem; the Geminian need for variety and change makes it all too easy for these people to start a great many different projects but leave most of them unfinished. Once more, awareness of this element of their characters will help counter it.

Geminis are very logical, rational people and, generally speaking, their minds work very quickly; but the influence of their ruling planet, Mercury, is important and must be carefully considered.

Geminis unquestionably need a lively, intellectual rapport with their partners. Shared interests are important, and the partner should have his or her own definite opinions, which will be enjoyably discussed and argued over. All of this will add lively spice to the partnership.

Geminis often don't entirely trust their emotions. When overwhelmed by feelings, they will immediately bring their rational, logical minds into play, trying to explain their emotions to themselves in order to give them a coherent perspective. This can cause problems, especially when Geminis are still young and coming to terms with the expression of emotion.

A Geminian child will start talking, and probably crawling, then walking, at a very early age. The parents of such a child should make quite sure that their youngster has plenty with which to keep happily occupied, as boredom will not be tolerated - indeed, Geminis almost fear it. To get to grips very early on with the tendency to inconsistency and superficiality, the child should be encouraged to finish all tasks that are started, although it would be wrong to insist that he or she tackle them one at a time. This simply doesn't work with Geminis, who obtain their best results when able to move from one project to another as the mood takes them and their interest waxes and wanes.

Geminian children usually do quite well at school, but they can bluff their way through tests. Really clever teachers will soon recognize this, and be able to stay several steps ahead of their Geminian students; less shrewd instructors will be taken for elaborate rides. At examination time, the Geminian will probably write reams and reams of opinion, backed up by too few essential facts: they usually find facts boring!

It goes without saying that Geminis are lively parents, filling their children's out-of-¬school hours with activity. They must be careful, since their children may not be as versatile, or have such quick minds, as they themselves. They should consider the basic needs and true qualities of their children, which may not coincide with their own. There is a very powerful critical streak in every Geminian, which can be more damning than they realize and may badly deflate and upset their children; it should be softened with humor and tempered by praise.

The Geminian versatility and communicative skills should ideally be used in a career. Many Geminis do very well working in the media; and Geminis are also the natural salespeople of the zodiac, doing well in department stores, in advertising, and as commercial travelers. Their need for change and variety must definitely not be ignored: predictable routine is inimical to them. So is solitary work; but at least when a Geminian acquires a lonely top job, he or she will never fail to listen to former colleagues, although this doesn't always mean that their advice will be accepted! A full and free interchange of ideas, and the battling to and fro of different opinions, is important.

In business, Geminis can be highly shrewd and cunning; and if they apply these characteristics to making money, they often do extremely well, although sometimes a faulty decision, perhaps too hastily made, will result in financial collapse. This is not an overly ambitious sign, but the Gemini imagination will happily enjoy success before it is actually achieved, which acts as a spur!

Continual change is a way of life for Geminis; as we have suggested, their chief fear in life is being bored, so they will continually find new ways of keeping themselves interested. If they don't, then their nearest and dearest must, at the slightest sign of twitchiness, do it for them. Leisure? They don't even have time for any - every moment is filled with activity, even if that is just writing or conversation. The thought of retirement won't dismay them, because there are many interests they want to pursue (probably all at once!) when they eventually find the time.

Although not necessarily strong, these people are almost certainly wiry and apparently perpetually young, so should not have too much trouble with their health. Any difficulties that do arise may perhaps be for psychological rather than physical reasons - Geminis have vast amounts of nervous energy which must be burned off. They are usually too individual really to enjoy team games, and they can quickly grow bored with the strict routine of formal exercise. The best solution is to join a health club but to use it in combination with other, individual, forms of exercise, such as running, jogging, walking, squash and tennis.

Gemini rules the lungs, and Sun sign Geminis must watch carefully for signs of breathlessness, or when a cold goes to their chests. It is vital that, if possible, they should refrain from smoking, which, while bad for everybody, is particularly lethal for them. They thrive best on a light diet of fresh salads and fruit, fish and white meat.

Sun in Gemini: Individuals born under the intellectual air sign Gemini are ruled by Mercury, and think and act swiftly. The key phrase for Gemini is 'I think'.

Since Mercury has to do with communication, Geminis must identify and classify. They must produce words and models in order for their contacts to be meaningful to them. Speech is especially important to them, serving as a framework for their activities. Words are anchoring or safety devices, as the mind jumps from one thing to another. Gemini's ease of speech is a positive attribute, but they must keep in mind the harm they can do by being chatterboxes.

They are thirsty for knowledge and eager to study. Generally, they have a highly-developed learning capacity. Their inventive imagination qualifies them for professions in writing, experimentation, and criticism. Education is therefore necessary to them from the time they are born. If their training is poor, they often make life unbearable for others. If they are well-educated, however, they tend to be charming and refined individuals.

Gemini’s reactions are prescribed by the mood of the moment; hence the dual quality to their personality. Variety is the spice of life as they see it, and this philosophy makes them high-strung. Unless things go their way, they are likely to become depressed. Geminis are happiest when they have more than one dominant interest.

Their state of nervous awareness allows no intellectual or physical tranquility. In emergencies, therefore, they rarely lose control, and their ingenuity provides unsuspected solutions.

Since Gemini rules the hands and arms, as well as the nerves, these people experience much pleasure when their hands are busy giving form to their ideas; and their ideas are plentiful!

Geminis must work to acquire calmness of minds as well as body. They might well begin by trying to keep their hands and feet still and to eat slowly. This discipline will enable them to maintain control even during angry moments or extreme nervous tension.

Geminis enjoy great popularity, largely because of their witty conversation, mental agility, sociability, courteousness, and intuition. However, they dislike being bound to any particular person or place. Their home life, therefore, leaves much to be desired. They are continually curious, and always searching for personal intellectual security in the middle of their changing experiences. They are fond of constant travel and changes of atmosphere.

Although they have no special attachment to material belongings, Geminis see money as power and freedom, and feel an attraction to it. They may be thrifty with their own money, but squander that of others.

As children, Geminis are so charming and ingenious that parents and educators are often blind to their defects. They should be trained early, since their objectionable traits are extremely hard to correct in later years. Once they are adults, education or discipline must come through their own volition. When this process occurs, this passion turns into creative energy and originality, which can be manifested in both business and the arts.

Geminis are the nonconformists of the Zodiac. Thus, they must maintain their separateness and remain different from those around them. They feel that if their potential is to be fully realized they must emerge from every possible kind of bondage. They rebel against the status quo, often breaking rules and resisting authority, and never yielding their individuality to one place or to one person. They will never act because someone or convention tells them to do so. However, as they grow older, they come to realize that co-operation is necessary to self-fulfillment. As Dane Rudhyar says, the very air we breathe has been exhaled by someone else's lungs. The air signs bring the individual to realize his relationship to humanity's common lot.

If Geminis master their deficiencies and negative tendencies, the excellent potentialities they possess at birth will enable them to reach high objectives.

Sun in Gemini: You have a friendly and flippant heart. You have the will to use generously your levity and sense of humor - without it devolving into flippancy. Your life should be led in a spirit of interest and communication - as opposed to trivia and distraction. Your father is seen or expressed as one who is light and amusing, and / or fly and insubstantial.

You generate a sparkling display of wit and anecdotes that refreshes Other and relieves him / her of his / her heavier thoughts and feelings; a sense that things are easy to accomplish and that worrying is for fools; and an air of deftness as you turn your hand to all manner of things with style and agility. You can alienate Other with a superficiality that is paradoxically quite profound in that Other cannot penetrate it but can only leave it, ultimately; with a cleverness that masks a deep inner doubt with regard to yourself and life in general, which Other inevitably spots; and by knowing everything but understanding little - least of all how Other feels.

You overemphasize who and what you know - or, curiously, your lack of knowledge and contacts. You overemphasize your fear of commitment, to the point of Other not wanting, or not being able, to commit to you. You also are reluctant to get right down to the real underlying truth of some issue, because it means you'll then have to stop flitting.

You can feel weak in the face of not knowing what to say or how to behave; at the prospect of someone getting to know you well enough to discover that you do not love or know yourself that much; and when you cannot rationalize or wander, which you do for fear of not being accepted for both sides of yourself.

When alone, you have your other half for company. This can be your 'light twin' or your 'dark twin', but it is more usually the latter. Your dark twin is all the doubts and irrationalities that you find hard to accept and strive even harder to avoid. For this reason, Geminis try never to be out of relationship for too long. It is also why they have, or are tempted to have, more than one partner - or, at least, keep their options open. But sooner or later, your dark twin, like your own shadow, will overtake you. The song 'Yesterday' by Gemini Paul McCartney says it all: '...I'm not half the man I used to be; there's a shadow hanging over me'. It is at such a time of being alone (all-one) that you must get to know and befriend what you have come to regard as unlovable in yourself. You will eventually realize that your dark twin was simply in the dark.

Sun in Gemini: You have the potential for a broad variety of sexual experiences; indeed, you will not be truly satisfied if you repeat the same kind of lovemaking over and over again. This does not mean that you require a number of lovers to achieve happiness; but within one relationship you need the stimulation of change to avoid sexual boredom. It would be wise to choose a partner who enjoys experimentation or is willing to learn and to try whatever you dream up.

However, sex is not your most important form of expression. You should avoid lovers who feel, as many people do, that personal intensity in lovemaking is the indicator of success in a relationship. For you, sex is recreation more than a personal statement, and you need a partner with an equally lighthearted approach who will become involved with you in other ways as well.

It is unusually important to you that your lover be your friend, because no matter how good it is, sex alone is simply not enough. It is only one of many expressions of personal togetherness and communion that you need for a rewarding relationship. Your most fulfilling moments come when you are deeply in touch with your lover, and this does not happen in the bedroom alone.

Sun in Gemini and Moon in Aries: The combination of your Sun and Moon signs makes you mentally “quick as a cat,” witty, versatile, and mobile, both in mind and body. You are naturally alert, active, and aggressive. At your best, you have a very ambitious nature, asserting yourself in a positive and confident manner in whatever direction you decide to go. You are a fun companion and a dangerous opponent, especially in a battle of words. You are intellectually motivated with an inclination for study and education, a desire always to stay up to date by study and the gathering of information on vital topics. Thus, you generally have a vast fund of information, stories, and quips, and when you’re with friends, you’re likely to be the life of the party. You will get far in life simply because of your natural popularity and your aptness in human relations. The problem can be that you may rely too much on wit, cleverness, and quickness to replace serious application. Nonetheless, people follow you instinctively because you seem to know where you are going and how to get there. Your sense of balance and direction is often based on a whim of the moment rather than logic and forethought. But you are a good leader because you are so sure of yourself, and because you make people feel that you think they are great, too. You are especially shrewd in business matters in a more or less a wheeler-dealer sort of way. In this you can show a selfish side, as while you are such a social person, you never forget to look out for number one. Emotionally there is nothing very deep or profound about you. You know what you like and what you don’t like, and it’s hard for anyone to tie you down for very long. You need to be constantly in motion, physically and mentally.

Sun in Gemini and Moon in Taurus: The combination of your Sun sign and your Moon sign produces one of the most popular personalities in the zodiac. You have the cleverness that attracts friends and a stability that retains them. Both signs are sociable and outgoing, and there is something likable about your easygoing, cool headed intellect that people relate to automatically. Intellectually you are impressive, having practical wisdom to back your broad expansive plans. A natural conversationalist, you are loaded with interesting tidbits of information to share. It is surprising that you can have such a driving personality, able to move mountain in record time under a highly social and charming cover. Your intelligence is unassuming and your driving force of your personality is not readily evident. This lack of pretentiousness makes it even more surprising when you reveal your accomplishment. Your judgment and business sense are inevitably sound and accurate. Your fluent mental ability is underscored by a determination to see any task through to its conclusion, a trait most Gemini fail to possess. Highly understanding of a broad cross section of people, you are rarely fooled or taken in. You are too smart for most people with whom you come into contest, but you won’t hurt their feelings by letting them know they have a lot to learn. Your sense for sociability extends to all.

Sun in Gemini and Moon in Gemini: The combination of your Sun sign and your Moon produces what can be described as very high voltage electricity. Not steady smooth electricity, but rather static charges bouncing from one place to another, constantly active. This energy can be channeled, but not for long. No matter how hard you try, you’re not apt to burn a hole of concentrative intensity through anything. You have tremendous mental capabilities, and the lack of willingness or ability to focus your interest and your direction, may be the only impeding factor in your life. You feel comfortable with your abilities whether they are with your hands or with your mind. Yet you can’t feel comfortable by yourself and if you don’t have someone to talk to and be with, you’re high-strung temperament immediately takes over. You will fidget, worry, or do calisthenics until someone comes along to calm you down. You’re an avid reader, but not an especially deep student. Always a great talker, you are glib, facile, witty, and clever. You have a great business or law head, since emotions don’t usually play a role in your decision making and thinking.

Sun in Gemini and Moon in Cancer: The combination of your Sun sign and your Moon sign is beneficial to both, but often produces a somewhat high-strung emotional nature. Life is full of stimuli and fascinations, and the mind is always searching for experiences, romances, and revolutionary ideas to explore. You possess unusual emotional depth for a Gemini, and what your quick intellect doesn’t pick up on, your emotions do. You have a greater ability to concentrate than others of your Sun sign. Keeping your mind focused is the key to controlling an ever present problem with nervous tension. If you can concentrate on some study or pursuit, putting your mind on it and leaving it there, problems with nerves seem to disappear. But when you dwell on personal issues and petty problems, you may find yourself becoming progressively more subject to tensions. You have a great need for peace, quiet, and stability in your life, and it is important that you establish these early in life. Unfortunately, domestic stability doesn’t come easily or naturally for you, but it is important all the same. For all your problems with thinking and emotions, you always come out well. You are sure of yourself and confident of your analyzes. You know what is going on in the minds of men, and you have little difficult predicting their actions. Tricks and games people play seem crystal clear to you, and you have an intuitive sense of how to react.

Sun in Gemini and Moon in Leo: The combination of your Sun sign and your Moon sign places you in a class of true “personality people.” Your interests are so varied, your tastes so inclusive, your attitudes so tolerant, that you have a very broad appeal to many different people with whom you come in contact. An apparently happy-go-lucky nature conceals a core of sound good sense, just as the apparent fickle in your nature hides deep-seated loyalty and fidelity. You may be changeable in many ways, but when you settle to person or a course of action, you stay settled. Your mind turns from one subject to the next, from one relationship to another, but sooner or later the wavering and fluctuating stops, and you establish yourself. People have difficulty understanding you, not so much because you are complex, but merely because you are so hard to pin down. When your mind is made up to go after something, however, you don’t hesitate. Your warmth and amiability make you the life of many parties. You are confident of the impression you make on people and you are a study of joviality and good nature. You can get along very well in life with your kind of personality. Even when people don’t agree with what you say, they admire the way you say it. Oddly, a somewhat brooding spirit can invade your personality when things (especially romances) don’t come together as you feel they should. Nonetheless, you are blessed with a good personality, a good level head, and more than your fair share of good luck.

Sun in Gemini and Moon in Virgo: The combination of your Sun sign and your Moon sign suggests that you are dominated and motivated by intellectual pursuits. The natural tendency of a Gemini Sun to have a bright outlook and a versatile nature, is shaded by the Virgo Moon. You may become carried away by trifles and petty worries. You are moody and temperamental, with a good deal of self-dramatization and a tendency to feel misunderstood and unappreciated. There is a degree of tension and a nervous energy in your makeup that can be an advantage or a disadvantage, depending on how it is used. You are very alert, and always think things through, even if you don’t always see them through to completion. You may often jump from one project to another with lightning speed. Digging deeply into any subject is not your style. You can be critical of people, finding fault in their reasoning, and you are never shy about telling it the way it is. You are thought of as a “straight shooter” and your air of efficiency is impressive. Though your expression may be pointed, it is never vengeful in a heavy emotional way and you are never intentionally mean or unreasonable. You are sociable and entertaining, with a desert-dry sense of humor and wit. It may not seem so, but you are rather serious and if you can force yourself to stick to a job, you can accomplish much, especially if the project involves mental processes. Your mind is sharp as a tack, and you have the logic and facts to back your every move. Unfortunately, you may enjoy explaining your theories and plans more than executing them. Developing the ability to relax and be satisfied in the world as you find it will help you a great deal.

Sun in Gemini and Moon in Libra: The combination of your Sun sign and your Moon sign produces a personality that is ethereal, lighthearted, bright and totally enjoyable. You have a clever sense of humor and active wit. In a very charming way, you can persuade and cajole the people in your life to usually come around to your way of thinking. This placement is very favorable for having many very influential friends and a professional career of some sort. You don’t, however, have much taste for really hard work, especially when this requires much concentration and sustained effort. You lead an active life in which you combine business and pleasure to good advantage. You are very independent and never like to feel beholden to anyone or any obligation. While you can force yourself to do about anything, no one else has much luck trying to stimulate your sense of duty or obligation. Life never seems dull to you because you stay so busy traveling (you love to travel), socializing, working and playing, as you please. Although you are somewhat high-strung, nothing keeps your moods in a depressed state for very long. Expressive, artistic, and able to communicate on many levels, you are a natural extrovert. You are such a good conversationalist that your stories sometimes become very detailed, complex, and long. Romantically, you may be somewhat fickle, and very demanding of complete justice in all your relationships.

Sun in Gemini and Moon in Scorpio: The combination of your Sun sign and your Moon sign produces an intellectual quickness and an emotional depth that makes you an exceptionally forceful, magnetic, and versatile person. You are especially quick and active, while being extremely receptive and tuned in to other people. Surprisingly, these exceptional traits may not necessarily make you the leader that is implied. With all this strength, you are easily persuaded and influenced, and sometimes led astray or distracted from doing what you might be thought capable of doing. You’re never opposed to taking a chance or getting out on a limb. Sensationalism is always appealing to you, and this is reflected in your actions, and perhaps in the friends you select, as well. You may expend a good deal of your energies chasing personal pleasures rather than keeping your nose to the grindstone. You can pursue any project with such great intensity, but never for any long periods of time. Overindulging and getting your finger to too many pies can result in problems if you aren’t careful, and you are not one who is is usually very careful. There is little you couldn’t do if you could get your mental and emotional nature pulling together in the same constructive direction.

Sun in Gemini and Moon in Sagittarius: The combination of your Sun sign and your Moon sign produces a very uncontrollable personality charged with the desire for intellectual freedom, travel, adventure, and the quest for excitement. You are frank, honest, restless, never stop learning and growing. Your highly individualistic nature has you running in high gear nearly all the time. You are the type that knows a little bit about many things, and you’re sure to have an opinion on about any subject that comes up. Oddly enough, though your knowledge is often rather superficial, your quick wit and gift for oratory makes you a debater to be reckoned with. Your honesty and frankness can lead you into difficulties at times; your mind works so quick that tact and diplomacy sometimes are forgotten in your instantaneous repartees. Your witty personality, quickness of mind, and facility of thought will take you far. This is perhaps one of the most independent combinations. Deciding on your lifes work sticking to a plan may not be easy. You simply must the freedom of mind, body and spirit. Highly social and outgoing, your conversation skills are admired by all.

Sun in Gemini and Moon in Capricorn: The combination of your Sun sign and your Moon sign produces a personality that is worldly-wise and shrewd. Under the genial front of smiles and good humor lies a core of steel, strength of purpose, and ambition. You operate with a healthy respect for tradition, law, and authority, able to become a law unto yourself, and to others. You can meet any challenge, especially one requiring a cool head and objective reasoning ability. You are affable, social and generous, but no one can impose on you; your business judgment is amazingly sharp. Your keen wit allows you to talk people into agreement with your position before they know what has happened. Your manner is poised, charming and disarming, enabling you to succeed in the business world where you can sell yourself or close a deal with casual ease. People relax and let down their guard around you. Outgoing and extroverted, you seem to inspire confidence and usually come out a winner. Your mind is so well constructed that analysis and critical ability come naturally. You are fair and utterly honorable, but you never fail to bargain shrewdly. Nervousness and restlessness are well controlled, and you are likely to be intensely ambitious. There is a cool detachment about you that keeps you from opening up to people in a true sense. You are highly sensitive and likewise conscious of other people’s sensitive points. You’re more analytical than creative or original. Your sense of diplomacy is active and leads you to a policy of rarely antagonizing others to achieve your ends.

Sun in Gemini and Moon in Aquarius: The combination of your Sun sign and your Moon sign produces the quick mind and broad scope of intelligence that may enable you to achieve public notoriety. Your mind can grasp details without missing the big picture. You seem to have the gift of foresight and insight, seeing both the fact and the potentialities. Your uncanny foresight or intuition allows you to be one of those people with the ability always to be looking ahead and anticipating the need for change and improvement. You are a true progressive. You can organize and express what you know in a clear and concise fashion. You are genuinely humanitarian, generous, and possess a desire to help others, so you can make an excellent teacher in whatever walk of life you choose. You seem to have a romantic outlook on life that can find, rather than create, beauty in your surroundings. Philosophical to an extreme, you are very understanding, tolerating, and accepting of others in a broad sense. So your circle of friends is probably extremely large and loyal. You are depressed by any sense of restriction or restraint the keeps you from doing your thing. Routine activities or affairs that confine you too much are impossible to tolerate.

Enigmatic and interesting, you are always an entertaining person to be around.

Sun in Gemini and Moon in Pisces: The combination of your Sun sign and your Moon sign provides a high degree of what would be called a sixth sense that always helps you get along in the world. This blending is one of the most versatile and adaptable, but one in which frequent change and inconstancy can be a problem, at times. Learning the difficult lesson of concentration can be an early life challenge. You are highly receptive and sensitive to the intangible vibrations around you, and these will at least guide you along a path of survival. This receptivity of mind encourages assimilation of knowledge, making it possible for you to be well-informed on a variety of subjects, while not really becoming an expert on any of them. Sometimes you have trouble seeing things in true perspective because you are anything but a realist. Even when your senses are wrong, it’s hard to convince you of the mistake. You have an illusory quality about you which keeps you somewhat remote from the world. Your goals and ambitions are never really high, but your creative and inventive abilities are considerable. You are happiest when in a harmonious environment where you can escape the various pressures and stresses of general business life, for which you are temperamentally unsuited. Your best talents center on the intellectual, literary, aesthetic or artistic, although your versatility may open up opportunities for you in any number of other areas. Your many talents notwithstanding, you may lack self-confidence. You try to justify the motives for all your actions, even when its not necessary that you do so. You have an innate feeling that you are often misunderstood. You’re very introspective, often holding fixed ideas about yourself that may be at complete variance with the facts. You have a quick perceptive mind when you aren’t too busy daydreaming. You have an instinctive hospitable nature, and this nature has a good deal of sympathy and understanding for fellow humans.

Sun in Gemini and Moon in Pisces:

Sun in Gemini Women: A Gemini woman, if you are not careful, is liable to grow on you; you acquire a taste for her, just as some people do for lima beans or buttermilk or spinach or grits and eggs. If you want to win and keep a woman born under this sign - you will have to be in good physical and mental condition. She will lead you a merry chase. You will be exasperated; your nerves will tingle, sometimes with joy, at other times simply because you're becoming an emotional and physical wreck. Apparently she's worth the trouble. Gemini women are popular. They are charming. They can be seductive. They can even, on occasion, be reasonable!

A must here is a sense of humor. Without it, you may as well give up. If you are going to pursue, or be pursued by, a Gemini woman, you must know how to laugh. This lady is on the go; she wants to know and be seen, and she wants to ask questions and to break the bubble of pomposity wherever she finds it. Sometimes, she talks too much!

Gemini women can exhibit a disturbing habit: they laugh at the wrong times. There is a romantic moment - you wish to say or do something sweet - and Gemini is laughing.

When you get used to them, Gemini women can become indispensible. However, once you let them realize this, you're in for trouble! Treat them lightly: the more you take Gemini women seriously, the more you are apt to suffer. Obviously, they have their excellent points. One of them is the stuff of life and living: there is nothing halfway about them. It is all the way or nothing at all. They can be daring, lovely, witty, and, at times, devastatingly funny.

You have a job on your hands if you are involved with women of Gemini. But it could indeed be a pleasant job - nice work if you can get it!

Sun in Gemini Women: You have a horror of missing anything. Knowledge for you is positively an addiction. You have to know what’s going on - the more places and items you hear about, the better. Life is to be learned about, thought about, written about, talked about. You're a communicator, a born networker. No one is a better or faster talker than you are. You love words and you love using them in any way you can, whether it’s conversation or crossword puzzles. You can discuss anything because you know a little about so many things. You live as if you were plugged into a never-ending party line. You notice, hear, and pick up information from many different sources. By getting all the angles, you stay objective and don’t get too heavily into anything. Interacting comes easily to you - you understand the art of flirting.

You adjust to circumstances, modify plans, regroup, and reconnoiter easily. You don’t get attached to any one plan or point of view. You keep space for new information. You can come up with more suggestions faster on how to do anything than anyone else and you back myself up with logic.

You’ve got lots of nervous energy. You’ll try anything once. In any area of life. Boredom and routine are your greatest enemies. You switch to different personalities as quickly as you change clothes, and almost as often. You can be two people at once, think one thing and say another and feel quite compatible with yourself in this dichotomy. You’ll consider every possible option, but you actually believe in very little. You know too much to get attached to any one idea.

You can be hard to pin down, but this keeps you young. So does your flexibility. You're youthful and you like it. You don’t want to grow old, so you circulate, experiencing different people and possibilities. You network like you breathe. Social groups are your meat and drink. You love to talk about what happened and who did what! You don’t want anything to pass you by.

You're looking for your ideal relationship, so you always keep your options open. A muscle man may intrigue you for a while, but it won’t last unless he’s a good talker. Your kind of man is brainy and versatile, has scope and a sense of humor, and can keep up with your multiplicity.

Sun in Gemini Man: Versatility is your hallmark. You're quick. You keep it lighthearted and easy, you need the mental stimulation of words, and you enjoy discussing anything. You like to test your wit on puzzles, crosswords and puns. A born investigator, you feed your insatiably curious mind with information of all sorts. Every detail interests you. You consider all the various possibilities in any idea or piece of information, keeping the flow of communication going by gathering whatever comes your way and then talking about it. You find no difficulty thinking in one way and acting in another. That's because you keep your mental distance with logic and an analytical approach. You generate many theoretical solutions to any given problem, because you like the interesting angles. But, hey, you don't get personally involved. Life is but a mental exercise!

Like a chameleon, you change to match your current environment. You don't want to grow old so you stay youthful by changing constantly. You're a high flier, a juggler. Physically and conceptually, you're continually on the move. Circulating, circulating. Social groups are your stage of operations. In them you are a magician- now they see you one way- and then presto, you're someone else in a wink!

Better than most, you know life is impermanent. The perfect woman may be right around the corner - she's Marilyn Monroe and Marie Curie crossed with the Keystone Cops. She's smart, so you can talk. You're flexible and idealistic and skeptical and not extremely monogamous. So many different points of view.! You believe in very little but ideas and the idea of change thrills you. Your life is a search for a mental ideal. Fortunately, thinking of having it is almost the same as having it.

Sun in Gemini Man: This man is versatile, alert, charming, and blessed with loads of energy. No matter what the weather, he is willing to go out, to be on the move, to experiment, to satisfy his curiosity. He may tire you, but you must not complain. That is the secret hint: never let him know when you are brooding or worrying. He may agree that you have a right to be sad, but, in reality, he expects you to keep your chin up, to keep smiling, to be disgustingly healthy. Complaining or nagging is one sure way to lose a Gemini man.

These men can be deceptive; often they are testing, probing, trying to find out what you are really made of, whether or not you are sincere. They are, like Gemini women, airy in temperament. They are idealistic; when forced to face practical issues, they are often downcast, hurt, bewildered - or at least give that impression.

A Gemini man must be convinced of your loyalty. Once he is, he is yours: you can ask for and receive anything he is capable of giving. But as far as he is concerned, it is you first ¬first you show your loyalty and love, then perhaps he'll come around!

A Gemini man is elusive, quick with his hands, artistic, restless, with a tendency to scatter his forces. It is best for you to make him believe that you are many-sided. Once he feels he has figured you out, he is apt to shrug and go on to his next love.

Gemini men talk their way into and out of almost anything. Listen to them but remain skeptical; and keep a Mona Lisa smile on your face. That definitely helps!

Sun in Gemini Man: I have to admit to being a little wary of Gemini men. They can be quite bossy and may treat the other members of their family and, indeed, women as a whole, as some kind of inferior species. They are so clever and persuasive in an argument that they become used to getting their own way, and can be terribly surprised and hurt when someone potentially slower and softer gets the better of them. There may be an unfeeling or thoughtless side to these people which allows them to use others or to 'con' people into giving them what they want. This mental arrogance can lead some Geminis into criminality. Others utilize these talents to turn themselves into excellent salesmen who, by means of a mixture of cheek and persistence, manage to close deal after deal.
