Everything says speed and ease about the Gemini. Their Air trigon is reminiscent of the wind; their ruling planet is the Mercury, also the Roman god of speed. Speed is an accompanying characteristic of their corresponding Chinese horoscope sign - the Horse, and change is a primary descriptor of the Mutable Cross, to which the Gemini belong.
In horoscope, the enigmatic planet Mercury represents the intellectual abilities. The ruler of the celestial trade ways is a symbol for the mind, perception. The feet of the Gemini may not be quick, but no one thinks quicker or reacts more rapidly than the natives of the Gemini Zodiac sign. The positive characteristics of the Gemini follow suit - quick-wittedness, versatility, perspicacity, performance, flexibility and dexterity.
However, because it is a dual Zodiac sign, many Gemini suffer from the inability to make important and responsible decisions, stick to those decisions and handle emotional strain. Some decisions are not worth sticking to. However, some are essential, and without commitment, there can be detrimental circumstances. The Gemini should read the horoscope to discern between those two types and to make sure that they are applying commitment, so difficult for them, to something that is worth the effort. To something that will protect your life in the upcoming month from becoming worse, or even something that will make it better.
The world is restless and the Geminis are accordingly mobile. Slow down! Impatience, self-deception, glibness, superficiality, inconstancy and indecisiveness, all exhibited to different degrees, all leave you in need of some advice. Allow the horoscope to offer such advice, to be a beacon of light amidst the uncertainty. It only takes five minutes to read, after which you can move on. However, as you will move on, you will be more informed. You will be more powerful, more in control; it is control that suffers when the car speeds up more than it was supposed to.
You may be running away from something or towards something, or you can do both. Far too often, the mind of the Gemini does neither - it runs in scattered patterns, its focus is unable to obtain the longevity necessary for the persistence in achieving a long-term goal. This is why you need to read the horoscope. For many other signs, its primary purpose is to serve as a guide and as a glimpse into the possibilities. It is all that for you, of course, but it is also a cautionary tale. The dangers that the horoscope may warn you of may be avoided if you put your mind to it. The success that the horoscope predicts, may also be avoided if you do not put your mind to following it. The horoscope for the next month can become a story of victory for a diligent Gemini or it can become a thought of what if? What if you would stick to that commitment to go to the gym, to increase work performance by 14%, to do something meaningful? The horoscopes may warn you what you might be missing or what you should put conscious effort in avoiding. One way or another, they may give you the purpose that you will hold on to.
