Gemini Is Ruled by Mercury
This is the true, original analysis of astrology as pertains to Gemini by Professor Fredrick White as written in “A Guide to Astrology”, published in 1901-1904. In other words, here is your information from the source; without the 100+ years of modern interpretation and commercial modification by others.
This 100+ year-old manuscript has been cleaned up and somewhat paraphrased for easier Third Millennium reading. However, as promised, an image of the original, unaltered manuscript is also included. Ctrl+/- will adjust the size. For historical perspective and additional nuances it is well worth the read.
Information for this article was compiled from United States (U.S.) government archives.
There is a short metaphysics experiment at the end.
The Gemini is masculine, barren, airy and humane; ruled by Mercury (The Messenger of the Gods). The Sun enters Gemini on May 22nd, and passes into Cancer on June 21st.
The Gemini personality is sympathetic, kind- hearted, affectionate, and fond of home and children; easily influenced by kindness, even to the point of detriment.
Other personality traits include a high degree of intuition and sensitivity. They have a large imagination and are quite idealistic. People born under this sign enjoy scientific knowledge and are consequently studious. This sign has an active mind and is generally busy with their hands; can be ambitious and aspiring. More personality traits include curiosity and is given to investigation/experimentation. They are excellent analysts and are generally good writers; can often be quite changeable.
Their main fault is a lack of continuity. The Gemini is very likely to go to extremes and generally imagine they can do much more than they are really able to do.

Paraphrased Quote: (Editor’s note: circa 1901)
The sign Gemini is said to rule the United States. The typical Yankee is a fair specimen of this sign. He is quick witted, ingenious, generous and charitable; has a kind word and helping hand for everyone.
First in war and first in peace.
Mercury was called the Messenger of the Gods, and it falls to the American people to lead in science and invention. Someday a gigantic statue of Mercury may adorn some prominent place; just as the Statue of Liberty now stands in New York harbor.
