P/S: Dear, Admin Gnekoda wants to tell you one thing. Since Gnekoda Admin had a few conflicts with Gemini cousin in the past, the admin will try the best to keep the tones objectives-> just like one of many core Gemini qualities: Learning new things by collecting all the facts. And the admin is learning new things about Gemini besides what the admin has been known through Gemini cousin.
We are in the third month of Astrological calendar. The first month starts with Aries, from Spring Equinox until April 20th. Then, we learn more about financial issues with Taurus month, April 21st to May 21st. Until today, we are counting the 4th days of Gemini month. So far, what news you learn as today? What new knowledge do you learn today?
Gemini Zodiac Sign Astrology background
The name: Gemini is Latin derived word-> it means “twin” in English translation.
When: the Sun enters May 21st to 21st June of normal Western calendar.
Time of Agriculture Crop Year: Growing and blooming plants period, therefore, it lure insects out-> season awareness
Constellation from Earth view:
- With 12 Zodiac Signs, old Astrologers divides into 3 main qualities: Cardinal (core) -> Fixed (level) -> Mutable (flexible and changeable)
- Until now, Aries is classified to Cardinal quality. Taurus is Fixed and Gemini is Mutable
- Short review: 12 Zodiac Signs has 4 elements: Fire, Earth, Air, and Water. Gemini is Air children
- What is Air Element good about?
- Contact with others,
- High intellectual capacity,
- Therefore, higher understanding in a spiritual way,
- Clarity of thought,
- And quick decision-makers.
Polarity: moving toward Yang side -> meaning: active in the daytime, have more masculine (This is still correct to Gemini woman. Gemini woman would be pushed into the situation where her testosterone hormone increases more than other ladies. Do you know an individual body has both sex gender hormones? regardless of male or female. If you are female, your estrogen produces more than your testosterone. Thus, it has a different effect on you in general. And for male, it’s vice versa. )
Main ruler planet: Mercury
- Partial ruling planets: Saturn and Jupiter
What you should know about Gemini’s gift from Mercury
The main ruler Gemini Sign is Mercury. Besides, Gemini is under the Saturn and Jupiter’s influence
Some Cosmo-background about Mercury planet:
- The smallest planet in our solar system ( Mercury radius is 2,439.7 km aka 1515.5 miles)
- The closest planet to the Sun (distance from Mercury to the Sun is about 58 million km aka 36 million miles and changing because our galaxy and our Univer is expanding)
- Short Mercurial Year: 88 Earth days
- Long Mercurial day: One day-night cycle on Mercury takes 175.97 Earth days
- A solid, rough surface like our Moon
- A thin atmosphere with oxygen, sodium, hydrogen, helium, potassium-> therefore, we can’t breathe normally if we visit Mercury
- Daytime temperatures can reach 430 degrees Celsius, aka 800 degrees Fahrenheit
- Nighttime temperatures drop to -180 degrees Celsius, aka -290 degrees Fahrenheit.
- IF we could stand on the Mercury surface and look to the Sun, it would appear three times bigger than the view from our Earth. It’s simply because the distance from Mercury is closer than Earth to Sun.
- Therefore, our human astronauts can’t go to discover Mercury. NASA only can send a spacecraft flew to Mercury for observing.
Flying shoes should be a necessary for all Gemini
Just like the Gemini symbol, it can seen as a mirror, a reflection of “I” -> Geminis are known as a twin. (Even you don’t have a real twin sibling, you still have one different twin. Right inside you.)
Thus, we also have two kind of Gemini mythology background stories.
One is from Roman Olympia God HERMES story
Hermes was the son of Zeus and the titan Maia who was the daughter of Atlas, the bearer of the celestial sphere. His father chose him early on to be his messenger because he was swift, cunning, eloquent and diplomatic. No one could really get angry with him. His most important characteristics were his winged sandals and caduceus garlanded with two snakes. He was the god of travelers, traders, craftsmen, players, and thieves.
Hermes displayed his exceptional talents almost immediately after his birth. He made his first lyre from a turtle’s shell and soon after stole fifty cattle from Apollo’s herd. He wrapped the cattle’s hooves in foliage, led them away backward by their tails and after he had hidden them, lay back down in his cradle.
He feigned innocence in front of his half-brother but was nevertheless betrayed and was forced to appear before Zeus, whereupon he also stole Apollo’s bow.
Zeus ordered him to return the animals but Hermes managed to avoid this. He played on his lyre for Apollo and offered it to him in exchange. Apollo was so taken with the instrument that he immediately agreed and the two became inseparable friends after Hermes also returned his bow.
Hermes sent people dreams and accompanied the dead on their journey to the underworld. He was the only figure allowed to leave the kingdom of Hades after entering it.
He was known as Hermes Trismegistus (“three-times great”) or in combination with the Egyptian god of the dead Anubis, as Hermanubis. In this latter form, the Egyptianized Hermes/Hellenized Anubis served primarily as the conductor of the dead (psychopomp) on their journey through the afterlife.
Another is Greek Castor and Pollux story
Castor and Pollux were a twin-half brother, known together as the Dioscuri.
Their mother was Leda, but they had different fathers; Castor was the mortal son of Tyndareus, the king of Sparta.
Pollux was the divine son of Zeus, who seduced Leda in the guise of a swan. Though accounts of their birth are varied, they are sometimes said to have been born from an egg.
Castor and Pollux aspired to marry the Leucippides (“daughters of the white horse”). They carried the women off to Sparta wherein each had a son; Phoebe bore Mnesileos to Pollux and Hilaeira bore Anogon to Castor.
After stealing the herd, but before dividing it, the cousins butchered, quartered, and roasted a calf. As they prepared to eat, the gigantic Idas suggested that the herd be divided into two parts instead of four, based on which pair of cousins finished their meal first. Castor and Pollux agreed, but they had been duped.
They allowed their cousins to take the entire herd but vowed someday to take revenge.
Castor and Pollux recognized the opportunity to exact revenge, made an excuse that justified leaving the feast, and set out to steal their cousins’ herd as they visit their hometown, Sparta.
Meanwhile, Castor and Pollux had reached their destination. Castor climbed a tree to keep a watch as Pollux began to free the cattle. Far away, Idas and Lynceus approached. Lynceus, named for the lynx because he could see in the dark, spied Castor hiding in the tree.
Idas and Lynceus immediately understood what was happening. Idas, furious, ambushed Castor, fatally wounding him with a blow from his spear—but not before Castor called out to warn Pollux.
In the ensuing brawl, Pollux killed Lynceus. As Idas was about to kill Pollux, Zeus, who had been watching from Mt. Olympus, hurled a thunderbolt, killing Idas and saving his son.
Returning to the dying Castor, Pollux was given the choice by Zeus of spending all his time on Mount Olympus or giving half his immortality to his mortal brother. He opted for the latter, enabling the twins to alternate between Olympus and Hades.
The brothers became the two brightest stars in the constellation Gemini.
Why some Gemini traits are cuter than a kitten? :3
Actually just one trait haha Geminian’s communication.
When Geminians are flirting, you will find it’s super cute. The way they talk, the way their body languages, the topic they are flirting XD, all are cuter than a kitten. Gemini’s beautiful face is also a plus when you have a conversation with them.
Sometimes, you will see Geminians similar to a cat. Special about their curiosity. Their curiosity is very wide. They are interested in many topics. -> that is one good thing when you will have many things to talk with Geminians -> it also is one reason you will never get bored when chatting with a Geminian, no matter genders 🙂
However, it leads into one small problem. Even Geminians interest are wide, but the deep knowledge….
” Geminians sometimes tend to gain only a superficial knowledge of something before moving on to something else “-> just their socializing ways 🙂
As they move into the new aspect of life, they emphasis on the facts. They will collect all the facts on that topic as much as they can find. Then, comprehensive with their ways too.
The way they do that is looking at the opposites side of that topic. There are many sides of one topic, but Geminians will focus only two opposites angles with each other.
For example, black vs white, yin vs yang, male vs female, good vs bad, etc.
They sometimes refuse to acknowledge the “gray area”. For example, in gender, it’s true we have two genders: males and females. However, there has a “gray area” about sexual orientation, we have more than two. It has 5 more besides two classic genders. They are BGLTQ. (You know what is it, right? Review if you don’t know 🙂 B = Bisexual; G= Gay; L= Lesbian; T= Transgender; Q= Queer (or unknown))
Do you find anything similar to yourself (if your Sun Sign is in Gemini)?
Do you have anyone in your mind who has some traits like that? If so, please share in the comment below.
(Next post will be about Gemini Woman Characteristics hi hi Admin Gnekoda has some conflitct with Gemini cousin, but with other Gemini ladies XD it’s a different story *wink*)
