    About Gemini

     Gemini is the third sign of the Zodiac and rules the house of communication in our chart. Gemini’s use their intelligence and mental mapping to calculate for the good of those they hold dear. They are very conscious of their kindred spirits, as denoted by their constellation the twins. With its ruler being Mercury, the messenger planet, we see quick wit, planning, and camaraderie as the stand out qualities of this sign.

    The element of Gemini is air, which influences communication and the mind. Air is the element that connects all other elements and Gemini uses that in their dictation. While some Gemini’s may seem intense, their values lie in processing out loud with the ones they hold dear. Much like the air around us, Gemini’s hate to be contained — they need freedom and the ability to be their own master.

    Gemini also has a “mutable” quality. Of the three qualities {the other two being fixed and cardinal}, mutable denotes a transition. As Gemini’s main focus is to relate through speech and movement, the ultimate end goal is to affect change. Like the signs that come at the end of the seasons, they have learned the lessons within them and seek a plan for the next stage.

    In the Tarot deck, Gemini’s ruling card is the Lovers. This card signifies duality and partnership and that nails the Gemini spirit on the head. The feeling associated with this card is the culmination of two halves, both opposition and choices. Gemini may struggle with balance, but there is always the unifying factor of Air, denoted by the clouds, that brings the two sides together.

    Famous Geminis are easy to pick out of a lineup. Tupac Shakur, for example, made a career on thug life and gangsta rap and was an extremely intelligent poet. Marilyn Monroe, the most iconic sex symbol of all time, was actually a very talented comedic actress with a dark side. And Kanye West, with his capricious social stances and long-standing hip-hop career, is about as Gemini as it gets.

    What to Expect

    If you’re not a Gemini, fear not, as the season will still affect you in a special way.

    Each of us has all of the zodiac signs in our birth chart, ruling each of the twelve “houses.” If you know your rising sign or ascendant, you have discovered who rules your first house, and then you can count around the zodiac from there.

    If you don’t, you can look up your entire birth chart using your birthplace, time, and date at cafeastrology.com. When you find out which house Gemini rules in your chart, you can see which area of your life this glorious air sign will affect.

    So, for example, if Gemini rules your seventh house, communication and strategy will affect your relationships.

    Happy Gemini season!
