Since they lack the quality of conscientiousness, they are apt to fight a losing battle in any attempts
they make to be moral (in the widest sense of the word). Their good qualities are attractive and
come easily to them. They are affectionate, courteous, kind, generous, and thoughtful towards the
poor and suffering - provided none of the activities resulting from expressing these traits interferes
too greatly with their own lives and comforts. They quickly learn to use their outward attractiveness
to gain their own ends, and when striving for these they will use any weapon in their armory -
unscrupulous lying, and cunning evasiveness; escaping blame by contriving to put it on other people,
wrapped up in all the charm they can turn on. In their better moments they may strive to be honest
and straightforward, but self-interest is almost always the victor. If things go against them, they sulk
like children. Also like children, they demand attention, admiration, and the spending on them of
time, energy and money, throwing tantrums if they don't get what they want. They reflect every
change in their surroundings, like chameleons, and can become pessimistic, sullen, peevish and
materialistically self-centered if circumstances force them to struggle in any way. If the conditions of
life become really adverse, their strength of will may desert them entirely. They can become uncertain
of themselves, either withdrawn, or nervously excitable worriers, sullenly discontented, hard and
irritable, with "Self" looming ever larger in their struggles. On the other hand their versatility can make
them very adaptable, adjusting themselves to control the world around them by means of their
inherent ingenuity and cleverness.
Most Gemini have a keen, intuitive, sometimes brilliant intelligence and they love cerebral challenges.
But their concentration, though intense for a while, does not last. Their mental agility and energy give
them a voracious appetite for knowledge from youth onward, though they dislike the labor of
learning. They easily grasp almost everything requiring intelligence and mental dexterity, and are often
able to marry manual skills to their qualities of mind. Their intellect is strongly analytical and
sometimes gives them so great an ability to see both sides of a question that they vacillate and find it
hard to make decisions. But their intelligence may very well be used to control and unify the duality
of their natures into a most efficient unit. If faced with difficulties, they have little determination to
worry at a problem until they find a solution - they will pick the brains of others. In their intellectual
pursuits, as in other departments of their lives, they risk becoming dilettantes, losing themselves in too
many projects which they follow until they become difficult.
Gemini rules the arms, shoulders, hands, lungs and nervous system and its subjects need to beware
of diseases and accidents associated with the upper part of the body, as well as nervous and
pulmonary disorders such as catarrh and bronchitis. Their mercurial nature may also affect a
constitution which is not strong if it is put under strain.
