Gemini is the Mutable Air sign. The Air element is a Thinking Type, mentally driven, communicative, fast-moving.
Gemini’s ‘Mutable’ quality means versatility, being flexible, able to put things together. It also means that the ‘Dual’ sign is double natured, prone to mutate and change rapidly – easily swing between bright vivacious and dark withdrawn; or between clear simple logic and a chaos of unfinished ends. You are most happy when, despite your busy life, your ‘dark twin’ is embraced via periods of solitary creative work and by relationships that encourage your emotional side to emerge. You are the ‘thinker’ of the zodiac, the third sign, your key phrase: “I Connect”.
MERCURY: Planet of the Mind—Your Planetary Ruler
Communication and a variety of life experience is the Air you breathe. In ancient Arabic astrology Gemini is said to be “of hot and humid nature” and “your angel holds the key to the creation of metals”. As a Twin, you are most happy when engaged in stimulating mental activities with a friend close by.
Mercury represents the magic of duality – the complementary pairing of opposites and the flexibility of an open mind. His special message to Gemini is to let your ever curious mind be guided by the light of wisdom.
