How much Gemini do you have?

If your Sun sign is Gemini, it is quite probable that you picture yourself as Gemini immediately after reading this, as the motto for this sign is: "I think". However, there may be some Gemini in you even if your natal Sun is not in that sign.

The position of the Sun describes our core, our essence. Therefore, a person born when the Sun was in Gemini can nimbly and eloquently identify with the Twins characteristics (agility and eloquence are very Geminian). However, every person is a mosaic of energies and each astrological factor represents various facets of our configuration; that is why the Gemini energy can be part of your potential at a different level from the Sun. Some people may have several astrology points in Gemini, while others just have a few or none in this sign.

I will describe in broad brushstrokes what Gemini can mean when it manifests through some astrological variables so you may have an idea.

If your Ascendant is Gemini (a.k.a. Rising sign), you will recognize a strong intellectual connection with your initiatives, by displaying a great deal of inventive and curiosity. In addition, you will tend to present yourself to the world in a friendly and expressive manner.

The Moon can be in any sign of the Zodiac independently of the Sun's position at birth. Consequently, your emotional style can have something of the Geminian versatility, even if, for example, you are an stable Capricorn.

If your Sun sign is Taurus, Gemini or Cancer, then it is possible that Mercury was in Gemini when you were born and this will grant you a dynamic mind and an articulate communication style (for example, a person with the Sun in Taurus can be very concrete, but his/her mind will tend to flit until his/her curiosity is satiated if Mercury is in the sign of the Twins). Likewise, if your Sun sign is Aries, Taurus, Gemini , Cancer or Leo, it is probable that Venus is in Gemini in your birth chart, which will influence you to strongly value intellectual exchange in personal relationships.

The planet Mars can manifest in your case through Gemini, no matter what your Sun sign is and if so, you will use your verbal abilities to defend your opinions and you will focus your energy on communication. Analogously, Jupiter can be in Gemini in your natal chart independently of your Sun sign, which will imply a notorious curiosity to expand your horizons, but with certain tendency towards distraction. You will tend to gain experience through the use of your intellect if Saturn is in the sign of the Twins in your birth chart.

If you belong to the generation of people born under Uranus in Gemini, you will prefer to begin any change through new mental images, concepts or expressions.

The essence of Gemini is to facilitate the exchange of ideas with flexibility and openness, which can be expressed through any of the areas referred above and at different levels, both positive and not so evolutionary, depending on your birth chart as a whole and your free will.

You can make good use of the best Gemini can give you in the area where you have received that energy, but it will all depend on the conscious choices you make. The search for answers can lead to a superficial and inconsequential curiosity, but such search can also induce to find meaningful answers, as well as to develop and communicate important concepts that will become relevant knowledge.
