At the exact minute of your birth, the astrological sign that is rising on the eastern horizon is designated the Ascendant or Rising Sign. The Ascendant is how you dawn on the world, how you present yourself to others. If someone were to guess your astrological sun sign, they would guess it based on what you show the world, which is your rising sign. Its the characteristics and personality traits that you put forth for all to see. Its the stained glass window that you project outward for the rest of your chart to flow through.
Those with a Gemini rising are typically social, talkative, versatile, adaptable, uncertain, mentally quick, shallow, and unpredictable. You are full of wit and cleverness though you may have trouble with nervousness or anxiety as your energies tend to run on a high frequency. You are always on the lookout to engage in a novel experience and there may be two very different sides to your personality that may seem contradictory to others. For you, it is second nature to express to others the knowledge you have gained and you strive to continuously acquire new information. You are happy to travel and read a fair bit as both of these allow you to learn something fresh. New stimulation is crucial to your livelihood and you enjoy diversity to such an extent that you may never fully master any one subject, preferring to become mildly proficient in all sorts of things; shallow and wide rather than deep, is more your flavour. On the outside it may seem that you are sure of yourself, but deep down you do not feel very confident at all. You love to communicate! All forms of communication are enjoyed from verbal to written and you are even fond of using hand gestures. An important lesson for you to learn is to find a way to manage your energy rather than spreading your efforts about wastefully; focus yourself. Gemini is ruled by Mercury and therefore its placement in your chart will be significant.
Shhh! To Gemini, sex is like playing. It has to be fun, a tickle and a laugh. Nothing to be taken too seriously. Read all about Gemini sexuality here.
If the planets symbolize the forces and energies that happen in different situations, then the aspects between the planets symbolize how these energies work together and integrate with each other. There are challenging and easy aspects between the planets and it is up to the individual to choose how they are going to utilize the aspect energies for a positive outcome. The aspects between planets are said to speak to each other. Depending on which planets are aspecting each other and the rest of the natal chart, will determine which planet is dominate and which is not in the aspect between them. But ultimately it is up to the individual to decide how they are going to use the aspects of planets in their chart with their free will, in a meaningful and productive way.
Prosperity is likely to come to you unexpectedly with this placement. You are a risk taker and always enthusiastic towards fresh concepts, information, or adventures. Travelling excites you as you are able to acquire knew knowledge from your experiences. Philosophical matters interest you and your views are unconventional and possibly odd, when compared to the general population. You have a concern for humankind as a whole and tend to have strong intuition, a clear head for reason, and a quick wit. Innovative and artistic minded, you devise unique, unusual strategies for your long term goals. As a free spirit, you desire a lot of space to do your own thing. You are often open-minded and accepting of others beliefs. It is unlikely that you will stay in one place for very long as your independent nature and thirst for learning will inspire you to experience new places and cultures.
The personal issues happening in other peoples lives are of immense interest to you. You enjoy listening to peoples problems and will happily open up to them about your emotions and your past. People naturally feel comfortable telling you about what is happening to them, their needs, and their deepest wishes. Your counsel is often sought after and you would do well in a field that involves psychology or interviewing others. However, be mindful not to get too carried away with frivolous chit-chat.
Historical culture interests you and you will likely be fascinated with learning about anything pertaining to this subject matter. Knowing where you come from is important to you. You may also study psychological, mythological, symbolic, or lingual topics. You have a clever, witty humour though you can find yourself behaving superficially with others at times. Mentally you are talented in perception and are great at remembering things, though your emotions can blur your judgement. You enjoy spicing things up a bit and prefer having something to adapt to regularly, rather than the same stale, boring routine. This desire leads to a great love of travelling to new places. Your mental and emotional processes are linked, and at times you can swing wildly from being very rational and analysing the situation with sound logic, to emotionally compromised and unreasonable.
Your emotions may be extremely sensitive and you are prone to becoming engrossed in dreamy romantic fantasies. This illusion can sometimes affect your progress in real life, as you may avoid your less fanciful, everyday obligations in order to stay in your daydream. Be mindful that others do not abuse your kindness, as you can be naïve in your readiness to help someone who seems to be down on their luck; do not let people manipulate your warm nature. It is also possible that you go to the other end of things and play the victim yourself, feeding on the pity of others just to be noticed, or you may use dishonest tactics on others, often times on those in your family. There is likelihood that in one way or another you encounter trouble deciphering what is true and what is false, as you can twist reality into fascinating delusions. It is paramount to develop your more practical side, learning when to restrain yourself from your own wishful thinking.
There is a tendency towards negative consequences as a result of a scam; therefore it would be best to avoid becoming involved in arrangements in which you are promised wealth for little investment. Thinking positively is good, though you must also keep your feet on the ground and your head out of the clouds. Nothing worth having in life is without hard work and sacrifice; there is always a price to pay.

Involvement in mystical endeavours can have a harmful influence on you; it would be best if you avoid these. Substance abuse may also become a problem for you and should be kept an eye on.
You are rather intuitive, possibly emotionally fragile, and may run into problems if you engage in the occult or mysticism in destructive ways. Because you are sensitive to your environment, you will need to be mindful towards a tendency to be easily affected by what others say, think, or do. It is also possibly that you may be able to pull out ideas from thin air and find a way to better yourself through them, whether this be an improvement on your will-power, your mentality, or your emotional well-being. Sometimes you are so set on being unlike the rest that you forget what the real truth is, try to stay aware of the actual situation. There is a tendency towards escaping through substance abuse, though this will not help you on your journey. Instead, you will discover who you are through aiding others. Use your intuition to guide you to where you are supposed to be. Creative endeavours will help you to unload any excess emotions.
You are mentally adept and prepared for anything. You enjoy a challenge and strive to absorb information from every turn. Reading is most likely the best way for you to take in new data and you will read anything that you can get your hands on. You are likely to be talented in mechanics and delight in taking on many endeavours at once. Manual labour is probably appealing to you and you may not have a preference in which hand you use with more skill. For you communication is done not only orally but also through hand gestures. This placement can bestow an aptitude for science or mathematics. However, a quick brain tends to facilitate a quick mouth too, and it would do you well to watch yours.

You enjoy friendly teasing and convey many of your jests via sarcastic remarks. You communicate your views forcefully and directly, in a straightforward, no-nonsense approach. You enjoy leading others and converse easily and extensively with others, even if you havent a clue about what you are discussing. You also like to find the faults in other peoples debates.

You tend to be self-sufficient, dedicated, brave, energetic, and love challenging your mind. However, make sure to take a moment to reflect on what you wish to say before you say it, as you can easily hurt others through your tactless mocking.
Mentally you are capable of delving into the most hidden of depths. Whether or not they are pleasant, you will uncover whatever secrets are buried beneath. You would make an excellent investigator as you are naturally gifted in the field. Psychological evaluation is another area that you are talented in and there is a strong interest in topics related to the afterlife and mystical studies. You are the sort that will learn one thing thoroughly rather than dabbling briefly all over the map.

You are drawn to situations, people, or subjects that project a mysterious quality and you are always up for the challenge of figuring them out. When you do come to a conclusion, you are able to clearly express what you have learned. You use your logical, analytical mind and intuitive ability to assess everything that you come across. Mentally you strive to transform and transcend whatever you find. Other people easily recognise your confident dedication to the things you do.

There is a talent here for dramatization, especially in the arts. In order to balance your mental and emotional states, it would help you to engage in this artistic talent and direct your energy productively. This outlet can also help you to keep your feet on the ground, rather than allowing your mind to run off into a land of fantasy. Turning fantasy into something tangible can happen for you due to your sensible nature; you couple idealism with practicality. Spiritual mysticism appeals to you and you may find yourself dabbling in the subject when opportunity presents itself. Others are drawn to your magnetic essence, particularly people who require aid of some sort. You can assert yourself when needed, though you do this in a tolerant, accepting, and caring way. Good past life karma bestows safety from secret adversaries who are intending to harm you. Innately you understand that if you continue working patiently and diligently, you will acquire what you are after. Sympathetic and sensitive to others suffering, you truly care for any living creature, human or otherwise, though you must be mindful not to allow others to take advantage of you by way of conjuring up a sad tale just to play on your sentiments. Being around water will soothe your mind and spirit, and therefore you should strive to be near water as often as possible.
You are highly imaginative and can easily visualise whatever you can think up. You are able to make your fantasies come true by applying your excellent reasoning abilities. Topics that are related to metaphysics, the supernatural, or alternative medicine tend to appeal to you and you enthusiastically explore them.

There is a large amount of artistic talent in this placement and when you feel properly motivated you can create truly inspirational pieces.

You never seem to tire out emotionally and it is important that you are able to divert some of this intensity into other avenues so as to stay steady and sane. You find it difficult to be inactive and will usually behave in an intolerant, grouchy manner when you are forced to do things at a slower pace than you would like. You can be very moody and your anger tends to erupt with little warning. Compromising is not easy for you as you prefer to strongly pursue what you desire, despite this causing disharmony with your spouse or family. You have a strong urge to compete with others on even small matters, though this may not be apparent to you. You are self-sufficient and require the utmost freedom to do as you wish. God help anyone who tries to insist you do something or in which way you are to go about it.

Usually your demeanour is caring and kind, though at times you can be a harsh critic and are too outspoken about other peoples flaws or mistakes. Mentally you process things speedily and therefore you are likely to react with impatience and irritation when others are unable to comprehend things as fast as you. This placement bestows you with better than average health and recovery time.

Instinctively you understand that in order to be truly close to someone, emotions must be brought to the surface, no holds barred, and you strive to accomplish this intimate connection. You are not one to toy with someones feelings. Subjects pertaining to religion, science, mythical or mystical studies, sexuality, psychological evaluation, fiction based on scientific evidence, dying, the afterlife, or curing ailments are all fascinating for you. Your strong intuition helps you to truly comprehend what other people are feeling and going through. Gaining knowledge is pleasurable to you and you soak up new data like a sponge. Your feelings run much deeper than what you express to others. You work diligently and are dedicated to doing your job, even when much energy and will are required.

At times, you may become so focused on your work that you continue forward even when you are completely exhausted; tunnel-vision is likely when you have taken on a project. This tendency is detrimental to your physical health and you must find a way to pace yourself and make time for relaxation. You have a strong character though you keep this low-key as you choose to keep out of the limelight. Preferring to be in the decision maker, you are often the one taking the lead in social situations and dislike anyone else trying to govern your life.

Mystery appeals to you and you enjoy delving into the depths to discover all things hidden. You insist on knowing the ins and outs of whatever situation you find yourself in, always asking why.

The Planets in astrology symbolize what is being addressed. They behave as actors in a production. What is happening on stage? The signs in astrology are the way that the actors behave on stage. They ask the question how? How is the planet motivated? How are they living their life, in their highest good or in their shadow? The signs describe in detail how the actor might react, behave or conduct themselves.
Geminis are out-going, adaptable, inquisitive, perceptive, rational, witty, instinctive, communicative, and articulate. On the other hand, they may be fidgety, contrary, insincere, fault-finding, and hurried. These creatures must be engaged in a career that allows for a great deal of diversity as they detest doing the same thing day in and day out; Geminis can become easily bored. They will often try to do too many things at once and time management isnt one of their greatest skills.
Like a butterfly, Geminis will fly from one thing to another, sampling this and learning about that, never staying long enough to thoroughly absorb the matter at hand. They prefer breadth over depth. It is also unlikely that they will see their many projects through to the end, as they lose interest quickly and move on to the next exciting endeavour. One thing they will always be fascinated with is acquiring knowledge and new information; this lends them to an aptitude in teaching if they can discipline themselves long enough to gather their teaching credentials. Any career in which they will need to persuade another is also appealing to them as they can be quite convincing, even if the tale is only halfway factual; they can be brilliant story tellers.
Geminis crave and require a great deal of mental stimulation. To achieve this, they will tend to read whatever they can get their hands on and socialise readily and extensively. The urgency they feel to obtain this mental activity will either drive them to achieve success or cause them to endlessly move about from one situation to another, seeking ever more interesting conquests but accomplishing little.
Having a gift for gab, Geminis amuse others with their charming persona, lively banter, and robust humour. They are always aware of just which words to use to elicit the response they are looking for, though at times they will so quickly alter the topics of conversation that many cannot follow them.
Due to their lightning quick mental reflexes, they may become impatient when waiting on others to finish articulating their thoughts, so much so that the Gemini will often jump in and speak for them. They must develop patience and tolerance for those who may not be as quick as they are.
Geminis can be indecisive as they are very objective and can understand the value in each side of contradicting perspectives. Though they may at times play favourites and back up the opinion of the person they are most interested in that particular minute. Nevertheless they are fickle and can convincingly argue for the exact opposite side when the situation changes.
Geminis tend to intellectualise their emotions and keep a cool head. They prefer to rely on logic rather than sentiment when evaluating situations and making their decisions. It is likely that they will comprehend other peoples behaviours, though be unable to empathise with them.
Unfortunately, Geminis are often insincere, unrealistic, inconsistent, unreliable, unable to focus their attention, and complain endlessly when in a negative place (learn about compatibility with Gemini here).
Stress is a particular problem for Geminis as they are usually high strung. They must learn to relax and quiet their mind or they will become sick from anxiety. It may be helpful to focus on someone other than themselves and direct their tensions towards something beneficial.
It would be best said that you think your emotions, rather than feel them and you will verbalise these emotions as it helps you to better understand them. However, due to your excellent ability to intellectualise your own emotions, you can fall short when trying to empathise with other peoples feelings as you find it difficult to comprehend that others are unable to remove themselves and look at their reactions objectively. It is imperative to you that you are able to vocalise and verbally sort through your various emotional states. More than anything, you crave constant communication and sharing of ideas. You may at times come across as insincere as you tend to steer clear of deeply emotional interactions. Committing yourself to an idea or a person fills you with dread. A large amount of mental activity is crucial to your happiness and you feel most bonded to those that eagerly communicate their interests and exchange ideas with you. It would be fair to say that you are somewhat of a sapiosexual; intelligence and mental stimulation attract you more than physical attributes. Your mind is flexible and diverse, as well as reactive and you tend to soak up information. You are charismatic, quick-witted, and loving, though you must be mindful of allowing too much stress to affect your system, as this will bring about an anxious energy that creates trouble for you. You find it difficult to keep from communicating your thoughts at all times and you will prefer keeping conversations peaceful as unnecessary confrontations are not your style. In fact, there is a likelihood of saying the things you believe others want to hear instead of what is actually true. Try to discipline yourself mentally otherwise you may find yourself blowing with the wind, unable to make your mind up, never planting your feet on the ground.
Your mind is very flexible, lively, dynamic, alert, inquisitive, and multi-talented. You absorb information from anything you come across, especially by way of written or spoken communication or through experiencing new cultures, exploring distant lands, or meeting new people. Unfortunately, you are likely to suffer from great internal tension and anxiousness that must be expended; establishing an exercise routine will help you to counter this energy. You are quick-witted and effortlessly respond with clever retort or humorous jest. You prefer doing more than one thing at a time and may try to swallow more than you can chew. Boredom can be a problem for you as you are able to comprehend even complex matters at lightning speed; once you have understood something, it is difficult to hold your attention further. A jack-of-all-trades, you possess titbits of information on a variety of different subjects, yet cannot hold your focus long enough to master any of them. You enjoy working with your hands and may not have a dominant hand preference; perhaps try playing the drums, you may find it comes easily to you. Engaging in verbal competitions of all sorts interests you. You need to watch out for a tendency towards being trivial, shallow, and insincere with others. In order to achieve success, you must learn to steady your mind and discipline your actions. Make sure to stick through with the endeavours you begin. Careers that deal with communication, articulation, persuasion, or the written or spoken word would be well suited for you, as would working in a field where you are able to change your scenery on a regular basis, perhaps traveling. Without constant variety, you are likely to quickly grow bored of the situation and therefore have a tendency to switching careers or living quarters regularly. Try to develop tolerance for those that are unable to comprehend intricate matters as easily as you do.
Romantic relationships bring out your trustworthy, faithful side and you flourish with a partner that is particularly warm and expressive with their feelings. Your senses are highly attuned and this causes you to indulge a bit more than you should, resulting in possible weight gain. Aesthetically pleasing items and environments strongly appeal to you and you find it important that your partner is visually striking. You must be mindful not to place too much significance in material possessions and curb your sensual appetites. You value luxury and prefer not to do any sort of manual labour. It may be that you assume others will do this sort of work for you, even when it is your responsibility. You are creative, loving, charismatic, and empathetic though you will need to learn how to restrain yourself at times. In your romantic partnerships you can easily fall into being envious and trying to own your partner, as well as being unwilling to do the extra work required in a relationship when things get rough. However, you enjoy putting in effort to show your appreciation in useful, concrete means.
You hold a large amount of both mental and physical energy. Always on the go, buzzing from one place to another, engaged in your many interests, sometimes you are involved in more than one activity at the same moment! With your lively mentality and curiosity, you require a large amount of stimulation to keep you from getting bored. You seek out new data and love to learn about anything you can get your hands on. It is also of great fun to you to engage yourself in challenging, competitive conversations with others where you can show off your wit and intelligence. You may find yourself suffering from nervous tensions due to your overly active mind, and it would be beneficial for you to establish some sort of exercise routine to relieve the pressure. You are likely to be animated and expressive, often communicating using your hands. You probably enjoy working with the hands somehow and it is possible that you do not have a dominant hand preference. At times you can become so excited about an opportunity that you will venture forward without thinking things through; try to slow down long enough to obtain a clear picture of the situation before entering into it. You dislike standing still and may engage yourself in activities that are not necessarily wholesome or beneficial, just for the thrill of having something to do. Exploring distant lands and cultures is enjoyable to you as you can acquire knowledge from each new situation. There is a tendency towards being prone to accidents involving your arms or shoulders, particularly accidents involving excessive heat. Many times these misfortunes could have been prevented had you been more patient rather than rushing to get things done. It would be best for you to stick to shorter assignments as you work well for brief, intense amounts of time but encounter difficulty if you must sustain your energy and interest for extended periods. Often you will try to multitask, though end up taking on more than you can realistically complete. You dislike routine and require diversity in your projects and in your life in general. You are mentally quick and bright and are interested in playing games or somehow testing your mental agility. Mental competition with others tickles your fancy and you have more stamina for mental activities than you do for the physical sort. On your journey to success, you prefer to utilise your excellent social skills, intellect, quick-wit, astute observations, and ability to articulate yourself. You have a robust sense of humour that tends towards the dark side. Try to pace yourself as you may throw yourself into things with full concentration, only to find you cannot sustain the energy and are unable to continue; working a bit more slowly and steadily will allow you to better keep your word.
You are caring, harmonious, out-going, empathetic, and care about your country and fellow man. There is a tendency towards idealism and you are fascinated by spiritual or supernatural concepts. Your observations and conclusions regarding finances are top notch and it is likely that you will acquire a large amount of wealth and assets after your middle years of life. You may also receive a great deal of aid from your family, particularly your parental figures. However, be mindful of a tendency to indulge in food and drink as this will cause weight gain as you age. Success will not come to you when you are young, but rather in your later years. It is also possible that you will become overly sentimental with your material assets, clinging to them and hording them away from others; try to curb your intense emotional reactions.
You have immense self-control and restraint when needed. You are able to understand people and intricate situations with remarkable accuracy and have no trouble manoeuvring any circumstance you find yourself in. A managerial or administrative ability is also present. Your intuition is exceptionally strong and you may experience premonitions. Outwardly you may keep your thoughts to yourself as you can be very private about your life and others may find you tough to read. Difficult situations do not faze you as you are capable of conquering almost anything you encounter or have the ability to figure it out. You are diligent and dedicated in your undertakings and are able to wait as long as need be to achieve your most cherished goals.

However, you may need to be mindful of a tendency towards unyielding, inflexible, vengeful, bitter, callous, or even cruel behaviour. There is also a possibility of becoming power-hungry or preoccupied with money or success. This placement denotes a necessity to reform your inner yearnings and it will be imperative that you allow situations to develop as they may, rather than holding on to a desired outcome, person, or object; surrender and release.

Your emotions tend to run high though you may suppress them or go to the other extreme and find yourself suffering from obsessive fear. Others are instinctively aware of this and create difficulties for you. There is a possibility of complications due to defamation or hidden adversaries. Buried grudges may be an issue that needs to be dealt with, and there is also a chance of false allegations from concealed sources. You feel as though you are on your own in this world.

Deadlines are a challenge for you though you are generally hard-working, diligent, and reliable. Your health in general tends to be rather fragile and you may have issues absorbing necessary nutrients; a multivitamin may help in this regard. Be mindful to pace yourself with your work as you are more likely to become a workaholic than most. Prone to anxiety and depression, maybe even obsessive about your health at times, it would be valuable for you to incorporate an exercise routine as this will help to temper your worries.
You may have a unique career or way of acquiring an income. What matters most to you in this area is the ability to pursue your creative and innovative ideas at will.
