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.

Personality Traits

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.

Faults

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.

Harmony and Compatibility

Gemini people are compatible and harmonize best with the Libra and Aquarius, and fairly well with Leo and Aries.

Best Career Paths and Jobs

For a business or profession, the Gemini requires something which is clean and easy. They make good writers, bookkeepers, model makers, jewelers or assemblers. They are often inventive and ingenious. Many are good teachers, professors, instructors, coaches, and trainers.

Best Places to Live

Gemini people enjoy high places, they like the mountains or the hilly countryside. This sign is prone to living on the upper floors of buildings, panoramic views are important to them.

Gemstones and Birthstones

The ruling gems of Gemini are the Topaz and Carbuncle. The emerald represents the positive aspects of the planet Mercury.

Historical

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.

      The zodiac has always interested me but this kind of gave me a different look at it thanks for sharing. You actually inspired me to do some writing on this so thanks again!

      Hi Paradigmsearch!

      I didn't know I could do that with Ctrl+/-.

      Well, being a Gemini (05.27) and interested in astrology, I was obviously drawn to this Hub. I've always been said to be an absolutely typical Gemini, and reading this made that seem even more so.

      I am surprised to read that Gemini rules the United States.

      It seems this type of information doesn't actually age, only the way it is written. You've certainly done a good job of bringing that up to date.

      A very interesting read! Love the photos, too.

      All the best, Camlo

      omg! You have described me in every Gemini detail! this is kind of scary. I do love writing, I do trust way too much to my detriment, I married an Aries, have two sons with an Aquarius that is a jerk, married a Pisces and he was evil. I do live in the mountains, and one day I will have a profitable and succesful career. Yes, we do need to talk. send me an e-mail voted this up! shared and tweeted.

    • Lisa 3 years ago

      I am a gemini and I strongly dislike heights. I prefer to be on the ground level because it makes be feel grounded and secure. Other than that, the description seems pretty true.

    • LG 2 years ago

      i don't like heights especially mountain,skycrapers and roller coasters.

      I was born gemini and very compassionate to those who are less fortunate and victims of unfair justice.an avid reader and nature lover as well as i love travelling and a big fan of arts and sciences and occult.
