A horoscope perspective for a Gemini the twin / 1/13/2011

To see ourselves in multiple views, is to know ourselves as one

Astrologer Hunter Reynolds says that when you are at your best, you Geminis specialize in “enlightened impatience.” You don’t get trapped expressing polite deference in situations that drain your energy. You don’t tolerate boring experiences just because they’re supposed to be good for you. You’d rather “err on the side of learning-through-too-much-movement” than get bogged down in “principled sluggishness.” But while that’s how you are when you’re at your peak, you can also be susceptible to the dark side of this talent. Sometimes you abort a potential breakthrough by prematurely fleeing a useful but difficult scene. I suspect you may be prone to that kind of behavior right now. My advice: Be skeptical of your escape reflex.

  1. I especially love this image, Walter! It suggests an earthy quality, a sort of a twin Green Man, and the overlay makes a beautiful composition.

    I’m intrigued by this new astrological/astronomical enigma… shifting planets and stars, shifting everything else!

    • Thanks Leslee, I am thinking about the meaning of the horoscope. It seems to have a duality that I am not sure if I comprehend. For comprehending more, inevitably means moving towards that understanding. Am I ready? On one hand the comfortability needs to be “aborted,” and on the other sustained. Which really is the side to err on? There is no doubt an inate drive to explore and push beyond the boundaries, for I feel this path would be the more satisfying.
