Place and Character
The Communicator of the Zodiac, Gemini is ruled by MERCURY, and its symbol is the TWINS. Its natural place is the THIRD HOUSE, the house of Communication. Curious Gemini is an AIR sign, analytical and ever-changing. Often times overly intellectual and unstable, Gemini reserves the right to change its mind, often "forgetting" to communicate the unpleasant.
They are flexible, versatile, restless, a jack-of-all-trades, lively, alert, quick-witted, literary, communicative, a good conversationalist, changeable, sociable, logical, ingenious, agile, dexterous, intellectual, and mentally ambitious.
Gemini lovers keep changing their minds. Their flighty spirit means that they do not like to be tied down. Partners may find them unreliable and a constant source of surprise as they are forever dithering, unable to reach a final decision. Most are also incorrigibly flirtatious.
Colours: Saffron yellow, plus black and white contrats. The colour of Mercury, ruler of Gemini, is white.
Stones: Crystal, topaz and beryl.
Trees: Nut-trees, rowans and beech.
Flowers: Lilly-of-the-valley, lavendar and rock-roses.
Geminis are the thinkers of the zodiac. They are very clever, extremely inventive, and love to spend time dreaming up ideas for new schemes. They will never concentrate on one thing for very long, and they certainly have little time to think seriously about the making of money.
