The Gemini Zodiac Sign in the Horoscope
Gemini, the Twins, is the third sign of the Zodiac. The sun enters it on or around May 21. Gemini belongs to the element air, its quality is mutable and its charge is positive. Its Ruler is Mercury, and Jupiter exalts in it.Its motto is: "I think." In the horoscope chart, Gemini brings a playful, curious and optimistic character to planets or Houses therein.
Your Zodiac SignThose who have Gemini as their star sign are born when the sun was in Gemini, normally May 21 - June 20 (it differs slightly from year to year, because of the leap years). Therefore, it is also - more correctly - called the sun sign.
The sun in your horoscope is your natural self - what you are when you relax, when other planets in your horoscope are not active. It is your basic drive, a character you have as an ingredient - more or less evident in all you do and all you are. It is the most important point in your horoscope chart, but of course it is not the only thing that describes your personality. You need to look at all the components of your birth chart, to get a correct astrological description of yourself.
If your sun sign is Gemini, you are usually quite joyful and communicative. You like to talk, not worrying that much about what is being said. Generally, you don't take things that seriously, but are quick to joke and laugh. You are curious by nature, but impatient as well, so you prefer to learn a little about much, rather than much about a little.
A Zodiac sign does not give exactly the same influence all through its 30°. Its first third has something of a cardinal quality, whatever the quality of the sign as a whole is, its second third is slightly more fixed in quality, and the last third is more mutable.
If the sun is in the beginning of Gemini, you are very communicative, rarely quiet or discreet. You enjoy cheering folks up and getting their attention. If it's in the middle of Gemini you want to enjoy life, be with friends, make conversation and satisfy your curiosity. You are also prone to be well-versed. If the sun is at the end of Gemini, you are quite restless, jumping from this to that, initiating subjects for conversations and soon switching them. You have a hard time concentrating, but that doesn't worry you much.
Your FatherThe sun in the horoscope also represents your father (the mother is represented by the moon).
If you have the sun in Gemini, your relation to your father is a happy one, where both enjoy each other's company and speak freely to one another. You can joke, you can be at ease, but you don't really know each other that very well. Nor do you form very affectionate bonds. Still, you are quite content with things as they are. Even when you quarrel, it's no big matter.
The PlanetsWhen another planet or other point of the horoscope is in Gemini, it is also affected by the sign, getting something of its character. Here are those points, what they stand for, and how they are affected by Gemini:
Sun basic drive - Gemini brings joy and a light-hearted manner.
Moon longing - Gemini brings a sense of humor, a good mood, and an unwillingness to take things seriously.
Mercury curiosity - Gemini brings a quick intellect, and eloquence in speech and writing.
Venus affection - Gemini brings playfulness and a delight in erotic adventures.
Mars aggression - Gemini brings a sharp tongue, a mind set on intrigue, and a pen mightier than the sword.
Jupiter luck - Gemini brings good fortune in small matters, and a sense that life is easy, that you get what you wish for.
Saturn duty - Gemini brings some confusion as to what are lasting values, and a keen capacity to negotiate.
Uranus contemplation - Gemini brings a mind that is quick to understand even complicated matters, but not that interested in developing them.
Neptune fantasy - Gemini brings an entertaining fantasy, and dreams that jump from one thing to the next.
Pluto catharsis - Gemini brings a lightness to great events in life, as if they are mere spectacles.
Ascendant, AC attitude - Gemini brings eloquence and a sense of humor appreciated by all, although regarded as superficial.
Medium Coeli, MC self-image - Gemini brings a relaxed view of oneself, without demands or frustrations, as if of little importance.
The HousesIn the astrological Houses, the Zodiac signs also bring their characters, influencing the environments described by the Houses. Here are the twelve Houses, what they stand for, and how Gemini affects them:
