Geminis can be intellectual wizards. If you’re a Gemini you probably know a lot of things about a lot of things. Much of a Gemini’s knowledge may be superficial and tangential but their communication skills are excellent, unless they have foot in mouth disease. We’ve all met those. A low-level Gemini may never stop talking and they have no interest or time in sharing their word space with anyone else. Geminis like to say what they think. The problem is, that can change in 10 seconds and while a Gemini has moved on, everyone else is left with their cutting words and inappropriate witticisms. Donald Trump and Newt Gingrich are Geminis. Low-level Geminis get bored easily and jump from project to project, subject to subject. They’re jack-of-all-trades, master of none. And they can be very indecisive. Gemini is known as the sign of the Twins because two distinct personalities play a role in a Gemini’s psyche. There’s the charming and witty conversationalist and the insensitive gad-about.
High level Geminis, on the other hand, bring harmony to relationships where ever they go. Alan Oken in Soul Centered Astrology says, “The Gemini individual is being used as a conscious vehicle for creating harmonious linkages in the world.” He goes on to say that a high level Gemini “aligns and blends various conflicting political and social forces; acts as an agent for harmony in group interrelations, becomes a diplomat for peace, and inventing technological advances for the benefit of humanity.” I wonder if Donald Trump or Newt Gingrich will ever rise to the level of Bill Moyers or my daughter, both high level Geminis. Probably not.
During the month of Gemini our focus is on communications, written and verbal. We have a variety of interests that can take us far afield from our original focus. We can also make headway on our research.
