and worry are common traits with this lunar position. An underlying
restlessness is common, and many Lunar Geminis need more stimulation than
others. They usually read a lot, talk a lot, and think a lot with this airy,
mutable position of the Moon.

housework, but are big on home improvement. Re-organizing their homes in

easily bored by both routine and constancy. Often, this is a reflection of
their inner world—"the grass is always greener..." applies here.
Inwardly, Lunar Geminis are often unsettled. Moon in Gemini parents are
generally more adept at handling the intellectual needs of their children
than emotional ones. Others' complicated emotions, in general, can be

as a result. Still, versatility and adaptability are some of the stronger
traits of this position of the Moon.
irritable, these people can easily become snappy. Their moodiness is
complicated—this is not the same kind of moodiness you'll find with water
sign moons, for example. Usually, difficult behaviour stems from inner
restlessness. Lunar Geminis want to do it all, and have trouble sticking to
any one project.
problems arise, the first instinct of Moon in Gemini natives is to talk
things out. Their tendency to analyse can give them the appearance of
emotional detachment. In fact, Lunar Geminis may be especially comfortable
talking about their feelings, but feeling their own feelings doesn't
come as easily. Those that don't take time out to really emote and understand
their own needs may end up baffling others. Feeling misunderstood is common
for Moon in Gemini natives. The only real solution to the problem is learning
to get in touch with their own feelings.

Gemini natives don't always rely on intuition, nor do they take into account
the world of emotion in their decision-making processes. In this sense, they

of heart behind what they say and think can be frustrating to more personal
Mercury in Gemini people are generally interested and interesting speakers,
they can also be quite detached, easily discarding or ignoring more personal
issues. They don't get attached to their opinions and ideas for too long, and

demonstrating their diverse interests. These lovers are playful—some might
even call them a tease. They are hard to pin down, and they resist

some reserve and caution, will want their relationships to be stimulating and
full of conversation with Venus in Gemini.
in Gemini men and women don't want to be tied or bogged down in their
relationships. They appreciate light heartedness in love. Although they are
willing to talk (perhaps endlessly) about the relationship, you may get the
feeling that they gloss over some of the deeper issues. In love, their
tastes change often, and it can be hard to know what to expect from one day
to the next (or, sometimes, from one hour to the next!).

Mars in Gemini
Mars is the planet that rules our drive and passions. In the mutable air sign
of Gemini, Mars is a little scattered and unfocused. Easily bored, Mars in
Gemini natives need a fresh change of pace frequently just to keep energy
levels up. It's a somewhat odd thing, really. When there's nothing much to
do, these natives are exhausted. But if there's plenty of interesting things
on their agenda, Mars in Gemini natives can be powerhouses! More than most
people, these individuals have a physical reaction to boredom.
possessing a passion for words, when Mars in Gemini natives get angry or
fired up, they use words as their "weapon". Angry words—some of the
most incisive and sarcastic ones—can fly around with the more energetic
natives. Others simply talk things through—energetically! Whatever the case
may be, Mars in Gemini natives need to get everything off their chests when
they're fired up.
fact, debates are a Mars in Gemini specialty. These natives draw on their sharp
wit to win arguments. In general, they can be talkative sorts, sometimes
bordering on verbal excesivness. Those whose charts show more reserve only
become chatty when they're worked up about something or the other.
people with this position of Mars are quite fidgety. They have much nervous
energy. In general, their nervousness and restlessness are at the root of
plenty of physical ups and downs. When they're on edge, they can be

after all, rules the hands; and these people often express energy through
musical instruments and the like—even video games. Many are attracted to
puzzles and games as diversions.
natives are very adaptable, often thriving on change. They often take up many
projects at once, spreading themselves thin at times. Sustained interest is

are busy people.

Those born with Gemini rising see the world as a place to learn. They are
curious about the people around them. Sounds similar to Sagittarius rising?
Well it is, but there are some important differences. While Sagittarius seeks
to expand their mental and physical horizons in a broad sense, Gemini is
mostly interested in moving about in their social circles.
are people who love to ask questions, to move around freely, and to mingle.
Definitely restless and often quick in physical expression, natives of the
Gemini Ascendant exude an air of impatience even if they don't mean it. In
fact, there is a cleverness to Gemini Ascendants that can intimidate some,
especially sensitive folk. Their facility with words can be a wonderful
asset, although sometimes Gemini rising individuals identify too much with
their mental agility and forget, in their personal interactions and
communications, to nurture the people around them. A certain lack of warmth
in presentation can be the result, and although this style is generally a
facade, it is not immediately apparent to most. People with, for example,
predominant Water signs may feel a little ill at ease with Gemini rising
people (that is, before they get to know them more personally), while strong
Air types more fully appreciate the fun and cleverness of these individuals.
found two styles of presentation most common with Gemini rising people. One
style is bubbly, changeable, talkative, and a little quirky. These natives
are interesting and fun. They constantly explain things, whether it's
their own behaviour and opinion or those of the world around them. Another
distinct "style" is a rather cool and intellectual demeanour. These
natives are often quite witty and clever, but they present themselves in a
less cheerful and changeable way than the first group. Their observations are
sharp and the overall manner is a tad brusque. No matter the style, Gemini
rising natives are given to analysis and making sense of their world. Their
powers of observation are well-developed, they are mentally active (more
often than not, their minds are racing!), and they almost always have
something bright or witty to say. It is easy for individuals with this
position to get sidetracked, as their curiosity is large, their minds are
quick, and their attention spans rather short!

intellectual, inquisitive, and perhaps odd child. Many feel their upbringing
lacked some warmth.

personal freedom and space. They enjoy intellectual debates and exchanging
ideas. Although they often demand a fair amount of freedom, they are often
just as willing to give their partners room to breathe.

Springsteen, Steffi Graf, Charlie Sheen, and Ricky Martin.
