Sun Enters Gemini

Gemini, The Twins
May 20 to June 21

Modality: Mutable
Element: Air
Ruler: Mercury

Keywords: Versatile, charming, engaging, witty, restless, duplicitous

As a Gemini, you are known for your skills at communication: witty and engaging, you are able to charm anyone, though you sometimes forget to listen when communicating with others. You are also known for your dual personality (or perhaps more), which can lead to some people describing you as “two-faced.” You are intelligent and curious, never ceasing your collection of information.

You immensely enjoy meeting new people, though few fall of those friends fall into the realm of being more than an acquaintance. In relationships, you cherish your freedom and independence, and may find that casual romances are easier for you than long-term relationships. You delight in being partnered, but you also want your freedom at the same time. The same dichotomy is true for your home (either pristine or extremely messy) and your family relationships (either close-knit or quite distant).

When it comes to work, your happiness is linked to your ability to explore new ideas and maintain autonomy. Your financial success depends largely on your attitudes towards spending and saving; think long-term when making financial decisions, and learn to plan for the future.

For the year ahead:

Affirmation: I welcome the opportunity to achieve my career best and to create financial security.

  • Jupiter in Pisces (your tenth house) makes 2010 a year to focus on your career. Later in the year Jupiter will merge with Uranus in Pisces, giving you a “lucky charm” in the workplace. Don’t slack off, though, or you won’t be able to reap the benefits.
  • Jupiter’s visit to your eleventh house (Aries) this summer, between June and September, gives your social life a boost. You could make some very important connections during this time, but be time if these contacts provide grandiose promises.
  • Neptune continues is trek through Aquarius, your ninth house. This encourages you to examine and reconnect with your spirituality and enlightenment.
  • Saturn begins and ends the year in Libra, your fourth house. Matters regarding the home from the past few years will be resolved. Perhaps a purchase or relocation is in the works, or you may simply use this positive energy to de-clutter or do household repairs.
  • Pluto in Capricorn (your eighth house) highlights your finances. In the coming years, you might benefit from a financial windfall, or you could suffer a serious downfall. It is up to you to plan properly. This is not a time to take financial risks or mix money with friendship.

Is this even true? I’ve heard (both in an astronomy class I took in college, as well as in articles) that a slight wobble of the earth due to gravitational interaction with the moon (called “precession”) means that the Sun no longer appears in the constellations we think they do and that the Zodiac we use is based on the positions of the stars relative to the Earth about 2,200 years ago (when the earth’s precession was different). According to this article (http://www.livescience.com/strangenews/your-astronomical-sign.html), the sun won’t enter Gemini until June 21st!

While Astronomy and traditional Astrology may not agree about the placement of the constellations, I am thoroughly convinced that the calculation of my “true” sun sign on this website is completely incorrect. I am 100% Leo with no traces of the personality traits or qualities of a Cancer. I do think that if this were truly an issue, more Astrologers would be addressing it.

This continues to be one of the great questions of astrology. Kyle, the answer to your question is that you’re both right and wrong. What you’re talking about is associated with what is known as the sidereal zodiac and sidereal astrology. There are many astrologers who work with this within the Western paradigm of astrology. One of the best known astrologers writing on the subject was Cyril Fagan. Llewellyn published one of his books, Astrological Origins, in 1973. To the best of my knowledge, however, the most common use of the sidereal zodiac is within other astrological paradigms, particularly “Jyotish,” the astrology practiced for thousands of years in India. Most Western astrologers, however, use the tropical zodiac. This is based on the concept of the seasons and that the spring equinox is at 1º Aries.

The thing is, we live by he seasons. Therefore, with tropical astrology, everything is uniformly shifted to match the equinox/Aries connection. The planets are all in the same relationship to each other. Since we live by the seasons, the tropical zodiac is fantastic for dealing with people. This is exemplified by Ms. Palechek who wrote, “I am 100% Leo with no traces of the personality traits or qualities of a Cancer.” Jyotish, working with the sidereal zodiac, specializes in working with times and places. There is value and accuracy with both systems. For people interested in learning more about astrology, I would respectfully suggest that a great place to start is to get your own reading. For example, if you select “browse products” at the top of this page, and then, under astrology, select “Reports & Charts,” you can find a wide range of astrological reports that will tell you an amazing amount about yourself and the world around you.

I also confirm that my “real” sign accoring to this website is incorrect. I am a Gemini, born on June 19th. According to this website, I should be a Taurus, however, all descriptions of those who fall under Gemini fit me EXACTLY, and I have no similarities whatsoever to the descriptions of a Taurus. I think that even though the Sun may appear in different constellations now, the original traditional interpretations remain the same.
