As a symbol, Gemini represents the exchange and connectivity of information. It is associated with listening and hearing, language, speaking, writing, gesticulating, siblings, neighbors, early education, small pieces of information and short distance travel. Through Gemini’s function we engage with, and make sense of the world around us and our place in it. You might think of Gemini as the ongoing socialization process. As a sign, it describes the ways we are curious, what kinds of information we connect with and reach for, how we absorb information, and how our perceptions and biases are formed through entrainment and feedback.
In the body, Gemini rules the mind and mental function, the voluntary nerves, the collarbones, arms, elbows, wrists and hands, the respiratory system and the air in the lungs. In its association to the mind, Gemini is the internal voice constantly narrating our experience, or, the language function of ego. From ego, communication is expressed through words (the air in the lungs) and gesticulation (upper limbs). Needless to say, the language function of ego is built upon perception. In this way, Gemini also has rulership (with Aquarius) in the nervous system.
I believe that Gemini’s embodied domain is specifically in the synapse (where neurons connect, the space between the axon and dendrite). The synapse is where neural pathways are built. Once a rule has been learned or an expectation formed, the nervous system will continue to follow the same route until it is either severed through trauma or consciously re-patterned. Gemini’s function is similar to this when considered in its association to language, learning and perception. As a connector, Gemini rules the space between information and understanding. It is how we deduce meaning from the information we perceive, and how our biases in turn shape our perceptions.
As we learn and grow through Gemini, we develop and refine our powers of communication. Early on in life, Gemini’s function assists us in learning language and building understanding of codified behaviors. As we mature, Gemini functions in the ways we continue to learn from and participate in our social environments and experiences. How we hear/listen and our receptiveness to new ideas is a large part of Gemini’s function as we age. Using language, writing and other forms of communication is a daily necessity for most of us, and Gemini functions in our language preferences and how we use communicative abilities to connect with others. Finally, we grow through Gemini by learning to separate from the mind’s constant chatter, and to work skillfully with our inner narrators.
