"Many a time I have wanted to stop talking and find out what I really
believed." - Walter Lippman
Gemini, ruled by Mercury and associated with the third house, represents mutable
air energy. The evolutionary endpoint of Gemini is the development of communicative wizardry, and a mind that can synthesize ideas and shape them into a masterful story. Gifted with endless curiosity, Gemini is inspired to collect, savor and sample a wide variety of experiences and perspectives. At his very best, he expresses versatility and flexibility in his thinking and communication
skills, and finds his way easily into the field of journalism, education, writing or any medium that requires the transmission of information to others.
Gemini can overwhelm and confuse himself by pursuing too many interests at once. Scattering his energy in many directions, he accomplishes little or
burns himself out with anxiety or nervous exhaustion. Learning to focus his attention on a few chosen goals is of prime importance to his success; otherwise, he will become a jack of all trades and master of none. Gemini can be an argumentative wiz kid, and when confronted with difficult circumstances, can articulate his position with seamless congruence and articulative brilliance. On the down side, when confronted with things he'd rather not face, he can skillfully argue himself out of a jam when it would serve him to simply listen.
Possessing a wild and exuberant "monkey mind", the conceptual world of the Gemini can change like a flickering kaleidoscopic light show. Because of his fast moving thought - stream, he flits from idea to idea like an adrenalin driven hummingbird. This Gemini flexibility of mind is a potent tool for transmitting a wide range of concepts and information to others,
but could make genuine communication very challenging if used to argue a position that is inherently dishonest. Gemini at his best, expresses mastery in the fine art of communication. He becomes adept at articulating ideas and transmitting knowledge with the dexterity and precision of a dancer, while encouraging others to pursue higher and higher levels of intelligence.
