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.

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!
