I really find life absolutely interesting and love to understand both sides of every new thing
Life is interesting when we are youthful and free-thinking, because our situations are the expression of vitality. Play leads to both knowledge and wisdom with no burden of justification. This is a philosophy – life is fun, enjoy it! Curiosity is driven by an instinct to explore, but Gemini is more breadth than depth, so adventures can lack focus. Moods are erratic – from introverted self-contemplation to shallow gossiping – yet always uniting intellect and intuition with slick alacrity. To test whether freedom truly exists, we must celebrate fully what liberties apparently are offered. This can be done in an exuberant display of childlike enthusiasm, allowing spontaneity to determine behaviour. Society puts boundaries in place only as a demonstration of appropriate good stewardship. Further restrictions need to be questioned – why are they necessary?
The Twins’ symbolic two pillars signify all duality, including the polarity of spiritual and material, also the rational and the instinctive – and the mission to settle and merge all such inconsistencies into one. This points to the rare gift to experience a fusion of extremes – living two mutually dependent conflicting forces at once – materialistic scepticism as well as naive inspiration; the vanquisher and the vanquished; the healer and the client; the student and the teacher. From this ingenious, constant repositioning, develops awareness of the intimate relationship between the state in which we manage the mind, and the state in which we find our circumstances. Then the game becomes how to manage our thoughts. The study of people, of ideas, and of processes leads to a fine ability to organize thought into a clear focus that can change things. It leads to a much finer sense of self, more subtle awareness, a greater depth of joy. These qualities are non-trivial, true and deep, and may successfully be projected outwards so that new situations are created – that stimulate further interest and further opportunities to become involved with new ideas and experiences.
Communication is the sacred purpose of these reporters, teachers, diplomats, interpreters, linguists and writers. It’s not important what the message is, as long as messaging occurs. This is networking – connecting so that information can flow easily and quickly – and its importance is absolute, since without it nothing at all can occur; it enables a fellowship of sympathetic souls. To raise such a code to an exalted state, there must be conditions to sponsor each viewpoint without prejudice. Each voice needs to be able to be heard so that its wisdom has the right to exert its fair weight of influence – according to popular opinion, not imposed belief. Freedom of speech is evidence of freedom from fear, at both the individual and collective levels.
The gift to explain ideas in words was once revered as mystical. Writing was honoured as religious activity, and words were understood to be magical symbols, mirrors of the Mind of God. With precise tone and the correct sacredness of approach, they were spoken to create effects, summon the angels, and heal the sick.
When we simply stop time for a moment, and really see with fresh eyes what is before us, we awaken to the deepest of mysteries. Even in trivial encounters – with a person, or aspect of nature, or just in being alive – there is a profound secret in the here and now. Each person has a unique and subjective glance at Unity; each one valid. Each moment is a reworking of the eternal kaleidoscope; each one valid. In this realization is to be found the most graceful lightness of being when we simply and completely allow it to be so.
The Expressions of Gemini
Gemini 1 – 5
To the adventurous, life is the experience of adventure; to the playful, all things are toys. If we live with the same open-eyed joyfulness, which normally we associate with children, then all material pleasure can be fully and unashamedly appreciated, and every opportunity grasped – we are hungry to find ways to enhance the enjoyment and beauty in each and every detail of our circumstances, delighting in the process. This custom expresses an appetite for living, and keeps us thoroughly invested in the evolutionary advancements of self and community. Life throws up any number of available experiences, each of which has its own attraction and validity, and can be considered a meaningful adventure to the curious-minded. There is always a risk with adventure, and yet a far greater one without it – the danger of stagnation.
Gemini 6 – 10
Each of us has a particular background of information and wisdom that makes us lean towards our own sense of what best serves us and others. Building on these past influences, we offer ourselves to every new situation, and contribute creatively and fully in the overall wellbeing of our community, by bringing freshness of perspective. The very differences between us all, of specialized activities and personal enthusiasms, are the components of a collective network of continual cooperation – and yet the commonality of skills, opinions, language and background, are the building blocks of this network. These exchanges create clear guidelines for individual members to establish the all-important connection, upon which a community has its foundation.
A deep level of empathy and intuition unfolds as a direct result of the great multiplicity of seemingly trivial interactions, and this creates the sympathetic fellowship of souls that is our wider community. So, it is imperative that we are allowed full opportunity to participate in an exchange of views, and open up every potential for personal expression. Only in this way can we expand the sense of self into true spiritual fellowship within the community, each taking full advantage of this extraordinary intersection of purposes.
Gemini 11 – 15
Invariably freedom must be protected and verified, so if we become the target of exploitation, or the object of an inconsiderate attitude, then audacious self-assertiveness arises. Individuality is a force that will always demand autonomy and behave according to its own sense of relevance – and if not in keeping with accepted ways, then as a voice apart, asserting its own values and views, and capable of far-reaching subtle influence.
Seeking richness, of expression and reward, it is mainly through abandon and mental youthfulness that creativity is allowed its fullest, inspired degree of imaginative reach. A combination of intelligent planning and intuitive inventiveness equips Gemini to cope with all emergencies, and thereby bestows a near-reckless disregard of normal cautions and an extraordinary level of daring self-confidence.
Gemini 16 – 20
The human mind is capable of such profound concentration that materiality bends to its will. Such specialized focus requires motivation, and very often this is found with this promise of material abundance. The luxurious trappings of social status, which are emblems of individual success, are there to be enjoyed as fully as success itself. It is this very richness of life, with its various associated enhancements, which raises individual personality into exalted states, and amplifies personal will.
This same ability to focus the mind is applied to the task of holding a clear sense of identity whenever external forces push and pull. Intelligence is the ability to learn or understand things, or to deal with new or difficult situations, and for those willing to progress, the task of self-development is considered entirely reasonable. This includes conscious preparation for anticipated challenges that might come up, often together with a charming ability to harness cooperation.
Gemini 21 – 25
Prepared to risk rattling the status quo, every new situation becomes an opening that supports us on our path of growth, and the reward for such uncensored personal participation in events is to reach an inspired level of understanding. When our aspirations are allowed to soar, we reach for the skies, and in so doing become a model for others, and consequently raise their eyes up to greater imaginings. The birthing of inspiration demands some degree of protection, so we have to put our stamp on the world – but only to a certain extent, because life is never fixed; it has to be lived energetically somewhere between what is safe and what is fun.
Gemini 26 – 30
There is a compelling force, evidenced by the power of nature, which can momentarily stop the world and freeze our attention to the perception of something awesome, the magic of splendour, an enchantment. The revelation of beauty is a spiritual experience, and we want to find that quality within as a resource, and as proof of our own cosmic significance. We get into a state on the spiritual planes, where all failure and success is seen as futile, so we can easily let go of any attachment to the rewards and penalties of normal life and rise above even the best and worst of ordinary circumstances. Then, standing radiant and charming, we bring the light of optimism to all around, and affirm, through a beautiful nature, the presence on earth of such qualities.
