20 Jun WHO IS GEMINI? EXPLORE THE ARCHETYPE OF THE TWINS <> OUR SACRED MASCULINE & FEMININE ENERGIES UNITE AS ONE WITHIN
The astrology of the Ancient Wisdom describes Gemini as “the light of interplay,” meaning that it is Gemini that reveals the basic duality of manifestation. This is the relationship between Spirit/Creator and form/the created. At its highest level therefore, Gemini is the path to the soul for it is the soul and its product, consciousness that is the point of resolution of this great tension. Gemini is then said to be ruled by the planet Venus, the goddess of love whose primary purpose is to unite all opposites in bonds of harmonious matrimony. But in terms of our ordinary life and the traditional astrology that serves to define and explain that life, Gemini itself becomes that duality. The Twins then fall under the rulership of Mercury, the ever-fluctuating, ever-shifting messenger. ~ALAN OKEN

“The immortal brother within humanity floods
the mortal brother with the light and life of God.”
Gemini brings the process much closer to the physical plane of expression. Gemini creates the patterns which will emerge finally as visible forms. Gemini is the design-maker, the weaver of patterns of force and energy. It is the beginning of duality, of the separation in consciousness, of intercommunication between polarities. Gemini has been called The Way of Many Changes.
At this stage, the separate seekers for the Grail might be said to meet and separate again, as each creates his own path. The All consciousness of the Source, perhaps, begins to sense differences within itself. This emerging sense of difference represents the first cleavage in consciousness. Individuality, the separation of the unit from the Whole, of the spark from the Central Flame, is now sensed.
The long period of “interior thought and mystical longing; the training after the vision,” the longing for knowledge, for experience, the “spasmodic attempts at self-discipline, at prayer and meditation, precede the determination for real and steady effort.”
The tests of Aries and Taurus behind, the separated unit has to register in his or her brain-consciousness the fact that he or she is not only an expression of divinity or deity, but is also individual and unique and must now begin to differentiate between the two aspects of expression. The soul aspect makes its impact, but is not yet a reality in consciousness.

The purpose of Gemini in terms of our ordinary life is to produce an awareness of the relationships that exist between all people, places, and things. In terms of the personality, Gemini does not resolve the dualities and conflicts inherent in these relationships. Gemini focuses our attention of the many, the multiples and the myriads, the potentials and the possibilities. It opens the door for the personality to experience itself in all sorts of environments and life situations. Gemini thus broadens the mind and expands our sense of connectedness with life. But it does not create unity on the personality level; that is simply not its role. Once the individual has evolved the faculty of intuition (through Mercury’s higher octave, Uranus), once our life orientation changes from a focus on form to an identification with energy, then the messenger of desire becomes the Messenger of the Gods and Gemini serves another purpose in our lives.
Gemini along with Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces is one of the four mutable signs. The primary function of all the mutables is to produce a constant state of flux. This is a periodic, cyclic movement of time and space that manifests in our daily life as changes in form. Yet the higher purpose of mutability and of Gemini in particular, is to provide an expanded field of expression for the life and function of the soul. It is this gathering of life experiences, based on the movement of relatedness and relationship, which is fundamental to the Twins. Gemini relates and by so doing, reveals the true intent of the soul: the interplay and interconnectedness of Spirit and matter.

“A GEMINI INCARNATION offers the opportunity to learn control of the mind through attunement to the soul and its desires. GEMINI learns through a variety of experiences, people, and knowledge. The GEMINI INCARNATION is a most important one because GEMINI is attuned to the dualities in life, accepts their existence, and learns to rise above the plane of duality, via the Rainbow Bridge, into the One. GEMINI, in turn, is to communicate that knowledge with others. Synthesis of the myriad facts, sought out by GEMINI, into a meaningful whole that can be shared with others is a major goal for GEMINI.”
