Gemini Physical Traits
Gemini - The Twins May 20 to June 21
This sign governs the shoulders, arms, and hands
of the Grand Man, or Microcosm. It is a changeable,
masculine, double-bodied, common, commanding
sign, the positive pole of the Air Triplicity.
The higher attributes are reason and sensation.
The Sun enters the sign Gemini each year on
or about the 20th of May, and departs from the
sign on or about the 21st of June. The Sun on
entering the sign should be given six days before
coming into full touch and action with the influence
of the sign. A person born between the dates
of the 20th and 26th of May would not receive
the full central results of the sign's individuality,
as he would be born when the Sun was on the
edge of the sign. This is known as the Cusp,
and its nature and impulses partake of the sign
the Sun has just passed through and out from,
and the native will also partake of the attributes
of the sign of the Zodiac in which the Moon
is located at the time of birth.
MANY Gemini persons may be said to be double.
One trait of character seems to contradict another
trait—in other words, they have a dual
nature in active operation. They want to travel,
and they want to stay at home. They wish to
study, and they wish to play. They are happy
and unhappy, satisfied and dissatisfied at the
same time. They are in love and not in love;
warm and cold in one breath. The Gemini people
do not fly quite so high as the other denizens
of the Air Triplicity, because the twins are
not always agreed upon the destination. This
contradiction causes a state of nervousness,
which is very hard to overcome. Gemini people
are extremely affectionate and generous, very
courteous and kind to all. They are proud of
birth, and have a great deal of family pride.
They are not a selfish or a penurious people.
They are thoughtful of the poor, and very sympathetic
with the suffering. They are fond of the arts
and sciences, are great readers and good talkers,
and very quick to see the point of a story or
joke. These people are not usually successful
wage earners, and frequently give away as fast
as they can earn.
They have very strong religious natures, and
are often found among church members. A creed
is of great importance to their happiness, and
yet they rarely place implicit confidence in
any theological system, though they will stoutly
defend the one they have appeared to espouse.
Gemini people have a great respect for religious
teachers, and are sometimes very timid and apprehensive
about thinking for themselves. This is attributable
to the necessity they feel for something to
lean upon, and the small opinion they have of
their own ability to decide questions of moment.
There are no more affectionate, unselfish, and
self-sacrificing people in all the twelve signs
of the Zodiac than those who come under Gemini.
Gemini people are often very executive with
their hands, and can cut and plan, and see into
a device or pattern, and, if not interfered
with, will bring the work to beautiful completion.
But they are not able to tell beforehand how
they are going to do it. Explanations and arguments
are impossible to the average Gemini person—in
fact, to most of the Air people. Gemini women
are especially fond of color, and of flowers,
and of everything beautiful in nature and art.
The finest efforts of the writers and poets
that come under this sign are reached by inspiration
and not by analysis or previous intellectual
preparation. Both Emerson and Margaret Fuller
Ossoli were born under Gemini, and are splendid
illustrations of the true Gemini genius.
