When Gemini is your Rising Sign, it gives you the outstanding characteristics of versatility and quickness of perception, plus a brilliant, ingenious mind. However, when these gifts are combined with your inborn restlessness, there is the danger of lacking in continuity of purpose.
You should guard against letting yourself be satisfied with a superficial knowledge about a lot of different things; learn to concentrate on one thing at a time. Because you have such a versatile mind, it is easy for you to absorb a little knowledge about many subjects. This can be a real trap; you risk becoming a 'Jack of all trades but master of none'.
You are a superb communicator on all levels - physical, mental, emotional, and verbal. Your hands are especially eloquent, continually moving in every direction while you talk.
Your nervous system is highly strung, a fact that is reflected in your quick manner of walking and speaking. That old saying, 'Variety is the spice of life', applies particularly to Gemini. Your restless, volatile nature gives you a real love of change, so that where hobbies, career and other interests and activities are concerned, there are likely to be many changes during your lifetime.
You experience great difficulty in finding theories and convictions which give lasting satisfaction. As a result, people and things which formerly exercised a great attraction are neglected when something new or different suddenly arouses your interest.
Gemini on the Ascendant can indicate a variety of respiratory problems such as bronchitis, pneumonia, asthma, hay fever or weak lungs. These types of health problems are particularly noticeable in the early part of life.
You find it very difficult to just sit still and relax, doing nothing. Instead, there is the constant need to be busy, running here and there, jotting down notes, phoning people, and so on. In fact, your mind always seems to be far ahead of your body. You must learn to be calm, to give your mind and your nervous system a chance to unwind and to recharge your batteries. Otherwise you will burn yourself out.
Gemini usually brings fluency in speech and/or writing. Since it is an intellectual Sign, you probably enjoy and could become quite proficient at writing, literature or science. This Sign is par excellence in communication, both mental and physical, so your natural, subconscious urge is to make contact with others. Curiosity is also one of your strong points; you enjoy investigating things and experimenting with new ideas.
You have the twin or double influence of Gemini in as much as you are kind, humane and sympathetic in an intellectual way. However, emotionally, you lack real depth of feeling when compared with the scale of emotional response which is possible for some of the other Star Sign personalities.
This is one reason why many people with Gemini on the Ascendant have problems in marriage, often marrying more than once.
