Astrology with Daliah Roth: Gemini

When it comes to wellness at Glasshouse we like to apply it to all aspects of our lifestyle, and that means staying up to date with the moon cycles and rituals that can affect our daily life and wellbeing. As part of a new series surrounding this topic, we have teamed up with Glasshouse friend Daliah Roth, The Highgate Astrologer. A professional astrologer since 2001, Daliah knows all there is to know about charting the stars, moon and planets and what this can mean for each of us. As the Gemini season kicks off today, Daliah has guest edited a guide to the sign and the qualities that come with it.

Gemini: 21st May – 21st June

Gemini, symbol of the twins, born after Taurus and before Cancer, what does this sign evoke in you? Do images of friends and celebrities pop up with thoughts like “Ohhhh, I really love him/her!” or “Ohhh nooo! So-and-so feels really irritating”? Whether we feel fondness, agitation, indifference, or know nothing about it, Gemini is one of the most misunderstood signs of the Zodiac. Inaccurate myths circulate the web describing Gemini as “two-faced”, “Jack of all trades” or even “spilt-personality”. Let us bust some of these hard-held beliefs and unravel the mysteries of this beautiful sign, for a better understanding of what makes it truly tick.

Firstly, not all Geminis are alike. This is because what we call a Gemini is only the fact that this person was born anytime between the 21st of May and 21st of June. When people ask “What sign are you?” they actually mean what month you were born in, your so-called Sun-sign. As roughly one twelfth of the human population is born under one of the 12 Zodiac signs, it´s very unlikely that everyone is alike. This explains how Prince, Marilyn Monroe, Queen Victoria, John F.-Kennedy, Obama and Trump can all be called Gemini. The expression of your character is influenced by so much more than your Sun-sign. Depending on what sign of the Zodiac your Ascendant, Moon, Venus, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn and the outer planets were in at the time of your birth and how they act in relationship with each other (all shown in the natal birth chart), you can be a lot like, or quite unlike, Gemini. And, to make everything even more interesting, people that are a totally different Sun-sign but have their Moon or Ascendant in Gemini, may be surprisingly very much like a Gemini.

Born between spring and summer when the season is unpredictable and it can turn chilly in an instant, Gemini reflects this time of year with its own seemingly unpredictable nature. Many are surprised when first faced with sudden mood variations, perhaps an on-off quality, wondering what, if anything, has gone “wrong” with their twin friend. This is, in fact, Gemini´s natural mechanism of high adaptability to the ever-changing circumstances of its outer and inner world. As part of the Sagittarius-Virgo-Pisces group, Gemini is a mutable sign: flexible, adjustable, dancing with, and around, life´s impermanent conditions. Unlike the fixed signs (Taurus, Leo, Aquarius and Scorpio), it has the capacity to give way, to make modifications and not dig its heels in. When faced with an obstacle, it will go around it. If the pressure is on, it will simply change. This makes for good cooperation, a great colleague and a friendly team player.

Associated with the element of air, Gemini is like the wind. It can cover a lot of ground very quickly, and it loves to experience as much as it can! This can make it seem detached and impersonal. Rather than feel, Gemini tends to rationalize feelings, bringing logic and objectivity to emotional situations, to the dismay of more watery types (Scorpio, Cancer, Pisces) that will miss a sense of empathy. Indeed, coolness can sometimes cause hurt feelings, but it is not intentional. Unless the chart indicates otherwise, these individuals are just not interested in delving into the intense depths of any given subject and can experience profound personal connecting as heavy and confining. They love to socialize and keep it light, making for highly witty and well-informed conversation partners, thanks to an insatiable curiosity about pretty much everything and anything. The downside is a much lower threshold of boredom than any other sign, running out of steam quickly, leaving behind projects unfinished. Remember, there is just so much more to encounter! Ultimately, Gemini´s mind is nothing short of brilliant, with a constant flow of great ideas. Nothing brings more joy to it than learning! And so, if you are ever feeling down or stuck in a rut, this youthful, high energy sign can bring healing with its capacity to refresh, transform and enchant even the most mundane interaction. Search out that Gemini and get charmed!
