The sign Gemini is ruled by Mercury, which is mind: thought, words, communications, exchange of ideas.

It is the realm of publicity, journalism, writing of all kinds. In fact, some of our greatest writers were/are Geminis.

All Geminis are curious and clever. One might fault them for perpetually absorbing anything and everything and quickly moving on. The truth is, they will sometimes miss the deeper analysis but without Geminis we would possibly miss our press corps, our magazines, our publishers.

If I were to pick a sign that rules the Internet, it would be Gemini. Restless insatiable curiosity. Flitting from one subject to the other. Able to access a billion facts at the touch of a finger.

A Gemini child needs to learn depth from parents who are aware not to simply praise them for being the most clever kid in the room, but for a whole child who learns how to turn off the gift of gab and focus on sincerity.

I realize that’s a challenge but we do not want to foster the con artist side to Geminis .. Especially the males.  They are known to whisper write or even sing the sweetest words to the object of their affection .. But it is often superficial as they are often off and running to their next conquest.

“A Gemini child needs to learn depth from parents who are aware not to simply praise them for being the most clever kid in the room, but for a whole child who learns how to turn off the gift of gab and focus on sincerity.”

Getting to the top is not necessarily a virtue .. As the song goes “it’s the climb”.  Getting a Gemini in the moment is a real gift for them and everyone around them.

“Mind” should not necessarily be the essential factor in child development .. It is supposed to be body mind and spirit.  So parents of Geminis  .. Remember what kind of life you are living .. And what you value.. That your child absorbs.

Not to blame an entire sign on one person,  but Donald Trump is a prime example of a Gemini gone awry.  He will say anything .. (Even if he doesn’t believe it) do anything (and always have a justification) spin any tale ..

I’m sure you get what I mean ..

This is not to be praised.
