Sun in Gemini:

Gemini is born under the constellation of the twins, which often means they’re indecisive and inconsistent, but if you want an honest and unbiased opinion, Gemini will be the friend you’d need to go to because they will always play the devil’s advocate. They are very friendly and lots of fun! Many people think of a gemini as extroverted, but that’s only half true. The twins also need plenty of time to themselves, making them ambiverts (both extro- and introverted). Keeping these guys confined too long with no one to talk to or keep them in a crowd longer than necessary will make them anxious.

Representing communication, Gemini can debate nearly any difficult topic most others shy away from. They are curious and adaptable folks, but also nervous and easily-stressed. However, they’re extremely capable and will adapt to any situation with new understanding. Learning very quickly, Gemini loves sharing ideas and they express themselves quite easily through communication. For some reason, these guys seem to pressure themselves into rushing toward things because they always have this panicked feeling that time is running out. Hit them with an intellectual challenge of some kind, and they’ll settle right in and accept it with confidence.

Remember to slow down and breathe, Gemini. Stay in the moment.

Personally, when I think of Gemini, I always think of Elves, Faeries, and Pixies. They’re quick-witted, deadly sarcastic, fun, flirty, and mischievous. They will think themselves and others into situations and then when they get caught, they will charmingly speak themselves free from it while the others take the punishment. However, they will probably come forward later after battling their internal counterpart and decide what they did was wrong. They have a high sense of brotherhood! They have a childlike innocence to them. They rarely mean to purposely hurt anyone. It’s all in the name of excitement and being inquisitive.

They’re sour and then they’re sweet!

A Gemini person may feel as though their role here on earth in this life is to mend the differences and intellectual challenges in both large ways and small ones in their circles. Their mastery of words and refusal to choose one side can be a healing experience, making them natural mediators. In relationships, a gemini person will find that communicating verbally is just as important to them as any physical contact. Although they are extremely loyal to their partners, they do find themselves flirting, even if they aren’t attracted to the person. It’s harmless and usually, they don’t even notice they do it.

The Moon in Gemini:

With the moon in Gemini, you need to know as much information as you possibly can. Some may even call you an information addict. Instinctively, you are a multi-tasker; constantly moving from one group of people to another, or from one task to another and effortlessly blending in and actively enjoying the experiences. It may be best to pay close attention to how thin you spread your energy because doing too many things at once not only means you will probably not actually get a lot done, but you will hit a point of exhaustion, risking your health and safety.

Gemini moon can so easily reply with such sharp cleverness and wit that you may as well have been smacked. Like Gemini sun, they can talk their way out of practically everything or into anything. The gift for gab is a great quality to have, but it can make you appear fake or manipulative to some others. Just be sure to have good intentions and what others think won’t matter. Also, be careful not to fall into the plague of gossip when you get lost in conversation. It may be hard to keep a secret, but it could potentially hurt those you definitely do not wish to hurt.

Lastly, Gemini moon often has a hard time expressing any emotional depth. In fact, they may actually have a hard time feeling their emotions at all. Instead, they tend to rationalize everything and unfortunately, leave many of their real emotions trapped inside of them. This can cause frustration and eventually, anger and outbursts. Find someone you trust and at least try and feel things out for yourself. You’ll feel much better after you do if you tend to have this problem.

Rising Sign in Gemini:

If your rising sign AKA ascendant (or first house) is in Gemini, that means your ruling planet is Mercury, (Watch out for those pesky mercury retrogrades). To put it simply, a gemini rising person will use their entire being to express their thoughts; radiating their ideas through every extension of themselves. The downside to this is that when they are feeling emotional, it is very difficult for them to hide it. Whatever is going on inside of them is apparent to the entire world.

They speak so quickly, it’s sometimes hard to keep up. They also have lightning fast reflexes and movements. Very animated, Gemini rising will use tons of body language and hand gestures when speaking. This could perhaps have something to do with their awareness of mind over body or intellect over beauty. Not only do they speak quickly, but they sometimes speak a lot! And just as easily and as quickly as they speak and move, they also take in tons of information just as fast and as naturally; sometimes making them seem rather odd, eccentric, or just quirky folks. (No worries, I am Gemini rising too!) Their nature is easy-going, however, and they are anything but aggressive or hostile.

Gemini rising usually has a narrow face and problems with eyesight. They will often wear contacts or glasses since childhood. Although they are of average height, they generally have longer than average limbs. It isn’t uncommon for gemini rising to be bisexual, polyamorous, or to simply feel like a genderless soul. In relationships, they are often sapiosexual: having more of an attraction to someone’s mind rather than their body and they’re prone to platonic relationships. They tend to be extremely anxious and take on an abnormal amount of stress. These guys should really be careful of damage to the nervous system and mental exhaustion.

They can easily overthink whatever is on their minds and actually create negative situations because of their rapid thought patterns instead of stopping the worrying issue from happening. However, they can easily heal themselves if they meditate, relax when possible, and exert some of their energy physically. On one hand, they’re capable of many things because of their vast knowledge means, while on the other, they can create complete chaos in their lives because of the extremes they must learn to balance in this life. Instead of extremes, they need to understand which voice is fear and practice more indifference.

Also an information addict, they have a strong curiosity for anything and everything that exists, has existed, or could perhaps exist. They think their way through life, creating a vast world within full of endless possibilities. They need a constant flow of information flowing into them, otherwise, they may feel a bit empty. Generally, they would prefer to spend their exercising mentally rather than physically, but their indifference toward food for pleasure means they often stay thin for life.

Domicile- Mercury

Detriment- Jupiter

Fall- n/a

Exhalation- n/a

The most interesting thing about Gemini, in my opinion, is that it neither has a fall, a debilitation, or an exhalation like the other zodiac signs. This is because it shares many things with Virgo, such as having the ruling planet Mercury. There is only one other pair like this in the zodiac signs and those are Taurus and Libra, which share Venus. However, Virgo gets both the exhalation (which is great) and the fall, (which is not so great).
