Moon in Gemini: It Takes Two

The Moon here sparkles with wit and needs plenty of freedom, and this leads to frequent meetings with new contacts, new dimensions, and experiences in the everyday life. It also means that you retain a special kind of youthfulness, even into old age. This placement of the luminary is often called the lightest of the Moon’s signs, but that does mean there are not regular mood swings, and your feeling reactions always need to have some kind of logical conclusions. Inevitably, you will always be on the move, looking for many social or cultural interests and a knowledge of life.

With the natal Moon in Gemini, you need to keep your mind active, and your talents directed into areas such as education. You can be a fine teacher or a quick-witted student. Moreover, you have a well-developed sense of keen perception and powerful intellectual abilities. It is particularly challenging for you, however, to stay with one thing for long periods and you need two or more projects to keep you active otherwise you’re constantly in search of new experiences.

You are a thinker and a collector of facts, with a thirst for knowledge. You’re the type of person who finds everything interesting and you especially like finding everything out about others. The speediness of your nature is due to being ruled by Hermes, the mythical god with the winged sandals, ensuring a lot of ground is covered rapidly, and so you are able to make fast connections, scintillating us with new ideas. As a mutable sign, the Moon in Gemini doesn’t like to be tied down and needs a constant flow in the life of media, information, and intellectual prose. And your voracious mind gathers tidbits and can have knowledge over an incredible range of subjects and so having you as a friend can make anyone feel somewhat cleverer or at least up-to-date on everything currently happening.

According to Sasha Fenton:

If given the opportunity, you learn to drive a car while you are in your teens, explore your own neighbourhood, and then travel the world as soon as you are able. Cities appeal to you more than the countryside, and you particularly enjoy visiting foreign cities. You are resourceful and can usually find a way to solve practical problems. You are probably quite good with your hands. Some of you may delay marriage or parenthood until you feel that you are sufficiently grown-up to cope with it, but when you do take the plunge, you are quite serious in your attitude. You make a delightful parent because you never quite grow up yourself; therefore, you relate easily to children. You will break the bank to provide them with a good education, and your children will never be short of books, materials or any other kind of mental stimulation. You can have a real problem in the realm of relationships, leading a very busy life which leaves you too tired and over-stretched for much relating. To some extent this is a mechanism which helps you to avoid the reality of responsible relating. This ‘busy-busy’ business could hide a deep well of unspoken unhappiness. You may avoid emotional commitment, preferring to keep your contacts with the opposite sex on a somewhat shallow level. Helen, a young Moon in Gemini travel agent, tells me ‘I’m not so much afraid of commitment as bored by it. I still feel at my age (early twenties) that I want to play the field. I have to admit that to some extent I dread the thought of being tied down.’ Perhaps you need to get in touch with your own feelings before being able to handle those of others. You could be a theorizer and, as far as emotions are concerned, you may prefer to read about emotional matters and to rationalize them than to feel the reality of them.

As a Moon in Gemini type, you can make a great storyteller and you are a social butterfly possessing magnificence, breeziness, and a vital intelligence. Your humor is also usually bright and quick and it may seem trivial in nature, or amusingly lightweight. You’re filled with dexterity, like a phone operator you quickly make multiple connections with versatility and communicative skills. You have a colorful way of expressing yourself, filled with bright ideas. The Moon in Gemini is magnetically drawn to words, phrases, and concepts, language, books, and wonderful conversations. In fact, you play a large role in lighting up the world and filling it with humor, flirtatiousness, and expressiveness.
