Gemini: Characteristics and PersonalityJanuary 4, 2016
Hold onto your hat, dear Gemini. Your endless curiosity takes you on many different trips and you love exploring through search engines.
The truth is others can’t keep up with your constant desire for change, but you just smile and delve into your tech studies, because—let’s face it—technology is always changing, too.
While you spend most of your time learning and playing with gadgets, your insatiable need for new experience makes you a relentless relationship seeker.
But when you settle down with your ideal partner—a learned and inspiring second half—you become a very good partner, dear Gemini. Your relationship can then shift and you’re both transformed through a more spiritual and loving journey together.
Your spouse’s lofty ideas will keep you interested and soothe your nervousness.
Your ruler Mercury, planet of intellectual knowledge and business, allows you to display your talents in marketing, media, public speaking and writing.
You always keep us wondering: What’s next? And this is part of your charm. In fact, you detest boredom more than any other sign. And we can’t get enough of your lightheartedness and offbeat sense of humor.
Parashara, one of the Rishis (or Indian seers) who wrote about Vedic astrology, said that you “live mostly in your mind.” This tendency makes you a particularly fast and innovative thinker.
When you avoid excessive mental exertion and save your energy, you can dazzle us with your novel creations and extensive knowledge. We’re so proud of you.
- Overly complex
- Overly sexual
Nakshatras (or Birth Stars)
The following constellations further define Gemini.
Mrigashira: This nakshatra is represented by a deer’s head and ruled by the planet Mars and Soma, a healing form of the Moon. Charm, gentleness, desire for knowledge, much curiosity and some restlessness are this star’s main characteristics. Mars can also grant a dynamic and active nature.
Arudra: This birth star is ruled by the north lunar node Rahu and Rudra, a fierce form of Shiva who destroys what’s unnecessary for our evolution. Although this nakshatra holds a very sharp energy, it gives great capacity for working on complex research projects and bringing technological innovations. Those born in Arudra are interested in astrology and a variety of sciences, but they also risk nervous burnout due to a restless nature. This nakshatra delivers quick thinking and the capacity to overcome self-destructive traits.
Punarvasu: This nakshatra is ruled by the planet of higher knowledge and wisdom Jupiter. The other ruler is Aditi, the Mother of the Gods and earthly abundance. This birth star symbolizes the calm following a devastating storm. Those born in Punarvasu own noble and pure qualities: they’re kind, nurturing, philosophical, religious and spiritual seekers. They can also turn into knowledgeable teachers and talented inspirational speakers.
