planetary ruler | element | modality
planetary ruler - mercury
each sign is ruled by a planet. and the planets in your chart are functions and forces within you.
mercury is the planet of perception, learning and communication. in the astro chart, mercury symbolizes how your sense of perception and communication skills operate. it also signifies the kinds of things you are interested in.
mercury rules two signs: virgo + gemini. whereas virgo is the introverted side of mercury, gemini is the yang expression, extroverted side of mercury. gemini turns mental energy outward to collect data and information and then communicate it.
element - air
the air element is yang in nature, meaning its expression is outward, moving away from the center.
air energy is associated with the agility of thoughts, ideas, observation and logic. it's social, changeable, intellectual and relationship-oriented. air signs source their energy from outside themselves by communicating, sharing ideas, through their relationships and through mental activities. gemini represents air that moves fast and shifts directions quickly.
modality - mutable
the modality of a sign describes how that sign moves through the world.
signs with a mutable modality are innately flexible, adaptable and have an affinity for adjustment and fine-tuning creative projects. they love movement and some degree of variability + freedom to their days. too much structure will agitate them.
mental stimulation and interaction
to understand the nature of life through the mind.
to stimulate the mind with data, info, viewpoints and a diversity of experiences.
to solve problems.
to talk to others.
variety. mental entertainment.
mind games, puzzles, crossword puzzles to stimulate and center the mind.
to feed their curiousity and need-to-know nature.
to create an intellectual system of organization that allows them to put life and its experience in logical order.
to gather information about the world in order to understand the nature of life through the logical, rational, linear mind and left brain.
the gemini quest is to discover mastery of the mind.
how to breathe life into
learn that the mind is not your identity by surrendering the "i think, so it is so" mentality and by questioning the "i think, therefore i am" mentality.
gemini can get spun up in the mind and is prone to anxiety. practicing techniques to keep the nervous system in balance is essential for gemini. try MELT Method, the sonic tonic and emf protection tonics.
gemini's soul contract is to work with the nature of paradox and the duality within their own nature. their call is to move away from viewing the world and life experiences in a polarizing black and white way and instead to find the rainbow of color in between.
gemini is the social butterfly of the zodiac.
they dislike routine and find security in life through the mind and knowledge.
has a need for constant stimulation and experiences.

everyone has gemini somewhere in their astro chart.
if you have personal planets or an ascendant (rising sign) in gemini or a packed 3rd house, you will feel and will be working with more of the gemini expression, lessons and challenges.
