Gemini Rising is one of the most complicated Rising Signs but for sure, you’ve all kissed the Blarney Stone.
First of all, your Soul Mates… in ancient astrology, they went much more by Rising Signs. Others with the same Rising Sign constituted your cohort or traveling companions in life.
Those with Gemini Rising include Martin Luther King, Pamela Anderson, Hillary Clinton, Michelle Pfeiffer, Romy Schneider, Mick Jagger, Jules Vern, Saddam Hussein, Tony Blair, Drew Barrymore, Jean-Paul Belmondo, Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh, Voltaire, Greta Garbo, Matthew McConaughey, Fidel Castro, Diana Rigg, Richard Wagner, Saint Hildegard of Bingen, Steffi Graf, Virginia Woolf, Michael Caine, Burt Reynolds, Tommy Lee Jones, Orson Welles, Arthur Conan Doyle, Charlie Sheen, Miles Davis, Le Corbusier, Lana Turner, Gregory Peck, Johannes Kepler, Gene Tierney, Giuseppe Verdi, Helen Mirren, Marianne Williamson, Teilhard de Chardin, George Patton, Sir Laurence Olivier, Leonard Nimoy, Jack London and Georges Clemenceau, Queen Victoria, Queen Mum, Susan Boyle, Te Kanawa, William Bougeureau and Wem Wenders.
What matters to Gemini Rising is words. Literacy and communication are so important to you that you may actually fear the power another’s words have over you.
Your Ascendant tells you what experiences in life to choose in order to grow. Choose opportunities that are integrating and elevating. Instead of pursuing trivia and vast gobs of information, put whatever you’re discovering in the context of a period in history or a step in evolution. British royals Queen Victoria and the Queen Mum became icons of their era and symbols of their time.
If used negatively, Gemini Rising can be scattered and superficial. Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair could be accused of this from time to time when he forgot to stay centered inside his Ascendant and gave “sound bites” instead.
It’s critical to Gemini Rising to understand the difference between information and knowledge, truth and half-truths, nervousness and curiosity, the higher and lower mind, interesting versus practical, death versus completion and good versus evil.
Depending on the sign and house of your Sun, you must pull these positive experiences towards you in order to grow. Take and use the ideas of others but integrate the information first so it isn’t just parroting.
When centered and in touch, Gemini Rising can handle any duality like a matador. The words of the saintly Teilhard de Chardin are incredibly meaningful because they come from his Soul. The French philosopher Voltaire changed the world by writing about his thoughts. Composers and geniuses Richard Wagner and Giuseppe Verdi used the formal structure of grand opera to get their ideas across and to elevate and eternalize their meaning.
Your Rising Sign also describes your physical appearance. There is something mercurial about those with Gemini Rising. They seem to appear and disappear like magic! They are ever changing and youthful no matter what their age.
