Your Sun, Moon and Rising Signs
Your Ascendant is Gemini
Your Ascendant (or Rising Sign) reveals the ways in which you present yourself to others, as well as the ways in which you immediately respond to the world around you. As such, it describes the ways in which we project ourselves out into the environment as well as the kinds of experiences we need to have in order to make life meaningful.
With Gemini rising, you are likely to approach life with a genuine sense of inquisitiveness. You may display curiosity and a desire to understand how people or things work. This Ascendant will make you primarily concerned with connection, so that you are driven to master the different modes of communication through which people connect. By nature, you are likely to be versatile and adaptable, with multiple interests and the ability to fit in with whatever life throws your way.
For you, communication is key. It is important to keep open avenues of exchange with your environment, and remain “in the know”. In order to achieve this, you should cultivate impartiality and objectivity in order to circulate information without emotional confusion.
Often fast-talking, you are usually interested in other people, which is a great social asset. You are likely to be gifted with a sharp mind and ability to talk about a wide range of things. Harnessing these qualities can be a real bonus. You can be very dexterous, and work well with your hands. Ruled by Mercury, you may be noted for your quick movements, wit, youthful looks and slender body.
You may be impatient with the slowness of others. In many ways you require stimulation. In turn, you are prepared to stimulate others, which will make you lively and fun, but may lead to some exaggeration in social settings. You may fear of boredom, and will avoid anything that makes you feel trapped. You may have a propensity for nervous tension and may need to learn to focus more. These may be the biggest hurdles you have to overcome in dealing with the mercurial energy of this otherwise enjoyable Ascendant.
This Ascendant may deepen your sense of restlessness if the rest of your chart is Air or Fire, but suits well those of you with a more Earth or Water temperament. If your chart is airy, you may be overly cerebral, and so inclined to lose touch with your body or your feelings. In this case you will have to slow down long enough to hear what your feelings are telling you. If fiery, you may be too impulsive, and have trouble settling down.
You need many varied experiences and interests to feel vital and alive. Yet, in some ways, this can become a liability. You may become too divergent in your pursuits, in the end becoming a Jack/Jill of all trades, but master of none. You may have difficulty in committing to any one option. There are so many tantalizing possibilities to explore. You are likely to prefer alternatives, and need the freedom to move around, interacting with a variety of people, ideas and things.
Yet at some stage, you will need to accept the necessity of commitment and containment, in order to experience the deeper satisfaction of integrated knowledge, from which comes meaning. Finding a purpose in your many varied experiences becomes the secret to experiencing satisfaction and a steady life path. Usually the position of the Sun in your chart will give clues as to how this can be done.
LEARNING FROM OTHERS
You are likely to seek partners who broaden your horizons. Through partnerships, you can gain a broader perspective on life as well as the inspiration needed to get the best from life. You are likely to be generous and broadminded with your partners, wishing to inspire them to be the best that they can be. Others can teach you the value of focussed attention and success comes from honing your skills, using them to highlight innate strengths and capabilities.
All in all, you are likely to be socially aware and adaptable. Your broad range of interests can make you unusually capable, and you can achieve many things through your gifts of social grace and charm.
