Gemini

Excerpt from Degrees of the Zodiac:

GeminiGEMINI (May 22 - June 21) is the natural 3rd house, and as such it is involved and concerned with communication. It is a masculine, outgoing influence similar to Aries, except that here it is the intellect and the breath that is outgoing. The "I" or the"ego" is more or less set aside. Action in gathering the facts is the keynote here. Gemini makes the best student. They ask very few questions of explanation, they merely absorb what is given out and give it back, sometimes verbatim, when asked. They do not do so well with long, involved explanations. They just read the instructions and report them when asked. But don't ask a Gemini why this or that doesn't work. He can't sit still long enough to figure out long, involved, complicated problems on his own. He will bring you all the pieces of a puzzle, but don't ask him to put it together, unless he already has it worked out. He skims quickly over the surface. He knows a little bit about everything but not very much about anything except the art of conversation.

The Sun is in Gemini during the last month of Spring, as the season is about ready to give way to summer. During this time, plants have reached the peak of their activity. The sap stored in the roots is drawn to the tips of the plant and new growth is taking place at the end of the tender shoots. The action takes place between the tips of the roots, gathering nourishment, and the tips of the branches, making new growth. Gemini rules the lungs and the nervous system of the body as well as the hands and arms. As Aries represents the newborn infant, Gemini represents the adolescent in the last stages of the development of the body. His mouth operates from lung power more than brainpower. He can't stand being held down or fenced in. He is subject to nervous disorders of all kinds when he loses his freedom to move or act independently.

Mercury rules Gemini and being next to the Sun, it is the fastest moving planet. It is considered the messenger of the Sun and always stays within about 27-28 degrees from the Sun in any chart. It weaves back and forth, retrograding twice a year.

Where Gemini falls in your chart shows your area of communication. It links its influence with the house position and planets found there will color your style of communication. Planets in Gemini increase your ability to communicate. The nature of the communication will be indicated by the nature of the planet. The influence of the degree shows the base from which the communication springs. It indicates what is inside of you to be communicated.
