The Duality of Me

The Duality of Me

The Duality of Me

“He communicates information and brings people together. That’s why in medical astrology Gemini rules the nervous system; it functions as a network to carry messages from the senses to the brain. In social situations, the Gemini archetype is also the catalyst. This involves two factors of course – positive and negative (dual). In the positive sense, Gemini friends are good at circulating your business card at social events. Give them a stack of cards to add t their gardener’s, hairdresser’s, caterer’s, seamstresses. But, in the negative sense, beware of the gossip tendency.” – Kathleen Burt

I am a Gemini. There was a time when I was ashamed to say that I’m a Gemini.  People would begin to go off about how horrible their entire life experience has been with us Gems.  Really.  And then they’d hurl their judgments of me (cloaked as comparisons of course), by the time they were done, I felt like an inappropriate, over talkative, manipulative ass. I’d try to recover by saying, “I’m gregarious”.  But you wouldn’t even believe the number of people that chose to believe that I’m not a safe person to be around – because I’m a Gemini.  Well let me tell you this: there is a duality about me.  And it’s all good. Sure, I may be Bi-polar.  But that’s all good too.

Some of my friends and family actually enjoy that I’m a Gemini.  My duality.  Yes, there seems to be two of me in many aspects of my life.  But to a degree, it balances me.  I still love myself when I hate myself.  See myself as honest when I’m lying.  See myself as creative when I feel like a slug.  See what I mean?  And you know what?  I am gregarious!  I love people.  Love to hate ’em and love to love ’em.  Sometimes I love too fast.  Sometimes I want all that I cannot have or have.  But overall, I love who I am, and am happy that I’m loved by someone else.

About the Gemini

Adaptable, Versatile, Communicative, Witty, Intellectual, Eloquent, Youthful and Lively

Nervous, Tense, Superficial, Inconsistent, Cunning and Inquisitive

Gemini’s are curious and intellectual by nature. They are forever exploring people and places in their quest to obtain knowledge. Bright, witty and outgoing, the Gemini charm guarantees they will be the center of attention in any crowd. Matching their intellect is a well-developed imagination.

The duality of the Gemini personality can make it difficult to know just whom you are dealing with. They sometimes seem fickle, flighty and susceptible to whim. These traits often make it difficult for Gemini’s to finish much of what they start. The other side of their dual personalities is they have an innate ability to multi-task, which is good since their interests are many and varied.

The Gemini Intellect is the key to their being, and provides the foundation for their skills in the art of communicating. Gemini’s are not born leaders and will usually defer that place to another. However, their clear thinking and creativity allow them to give positively to any project. While Gemini’s love to talk, they also make for a great audience. Overall, their light spirit and interest in almost everything make them wonderful company.

The Gemini In Love

Gemini’s love intelligent conversation, so the way to the Geminian heart is through the head. The Geminian is best involved with a steadier, stronger personality who will tolerate and enjoy their butterfly socializing, yet still be there for them when the cards have all blown down. They are willing to experiment with all ways of relationship styles; and as long as their partner is articulate, tolerant, exciting, adventurous and willing to discuss their exploits in detail, they will be ecstatic.

Because Gemini is not above straying, they are rather divorce prone. However, typically they think the joys of an occasional adventure more than make up for the risks involved. Gemini’s are exciting companions who crave excitement and variety. They assume they will be able to easily smooth over troubled waters with their silver tongue–they are tolerant of the peccadilloes of their partners, so long as they are not stolid or boring.

Famous Gemini Include: H.R.H. Philip (Duke of Edinburgh), Sir Arthur Conan-Doyle, Marilyn Monroe, Judy Garland, Bob Hope, John F Kennedy, Walt Whitman, Al Jolson, Bob Dylan, Thomas Hardy, Miles Davis, Bob Dylan, Stravinsky, Confucius, Kirk Kerkorian and Paul McCartney

Gemini Blessings

Of all the zodiac signs out there, ours is the one that is said by astrologers to seek astrology readings the most. This supports the notion that we are constantly looking to define who we are, potentially an impossible task because we are two people with two personalities. Who we are depends on who we are at the moment.  Gemini is a cerebral air sign which translates to excessive mental activity and an inability to turn our active minds completely off. We quickly jump into any interesting and creative projects and quickly find them to be boring. Gemini’s are always seeking new adventures to experience.  The speed in which we process information, even useless information, can lead communication issues with even our closest relationships.  Gemini’s should try to move at everyone else’s speed a bit.

If you are a Gemini, you probably have groups of people who know you as one person and groups of people who know you as another. We feel uncomfortable and may even fear that should these groups ever combine, the conversation may lead to the story of your life, and the question, “Who are you?” We are curious about everything and there is nothing we won’t at least consider trying. This leads to a daily task of discovery and since our actions define who we are, we are always someone new.

Whatever “thing” may be new to a Gemini, we must have it.  From the latest styles to the latest gadgets, we have them all and a huge collection of old ones. In many ways, this is how our relationships go too.  Be it personal, work, or with anything else, we tend to leap before we look to experience the now.

Spiritual Challenges for the Gemini Soul

The Yin-Yang of the universe has given Gemini a high-strung and nervous side.  This can make us act inconsistent and unpredictable, even to ourselves.  We love our freedom and we especially love to explore in our relationships.  Long term relationships are difficult to keep up. Our short attention spans can easily make others feel like we are non-committal.

Gemini’s have the ability to become highly devoted in our closest relationships, but our challenge is a matter of figuring out how to get from point A to point B.  Gemini’s, check your daily horoscope readings faithfully to focus on stability and less on spontaneity. Embrace the duality of you!

Daily Tarot Card for Gemini

 

The Strength card affirms that my alter ego today is the seductive beast of my Animagus, whose superpower is to master self-control to tame fears or impulses to prove of what stuff I’m made. I boldly go… but a willful heart is part of my secret identity. My infinite fortitude is seen by what I do, sacrifice or defy to stand up for what I feel is right, including admitting when I’m wrong, keeping out of it or not dignifying responses provoked by moral cowards and brutes. When resolve is tested I draw on the courage of my true character from the more savage or humble virtues of my natural instincts to maintain objective by composure. This enables me to hold my tongue against bravado, repress claws at empty threats, and not turn tail in pride against passion when it’s hard or inconvenient, but to persuade through self-restraint until assimilation is complete or resistance is futile.
