Gemini is the natural ruler of the Third House of the Zodiac, commonly referred to as the "House of Communication" and known is Vedic Astrology as the "Place of the Goddess of the Moon." This is the field which challenges an individual to organize personal experiences in order to form a unique picture of the world and then communicate those perceptions to others. It corresponds to the "little world" which includes an individual's neighborhood, local bank and post office, for example. The Third House operates basically on "automatic pilot," allowing the performance of routine tasks without any conscious thought. Traditionally, this house is associated with siblings, basic education, hand-eye coordination, manual dexterity and communication style...in short, many of the automatic skills learned during childhood and taken for granted in adult life. The Third House is governed by the Planet Mercury (which is also Planetary Ruler of the Sixth House).

The opposite sign to Gemini is Saggitarius. From Saggitarius, Gemini can learn to absorb a broader view of life and provide structure to the mass of information which is inherently collected. Thus, can Gemini natives learn to discover the truth.

Positive Traits: adaptable, versatile, intellectual, communicative, spontaneous, eloquent, youthful, lively, talkative, amusing, witty and logical.

Negative Traits: changeable, restless, inquisitive, inconsistent, superficial, cunning, nervous, tense and something of a gossip.

Likes: talking, novelty, variety, anything unusual and working on multiple projects at the same time.

Dislikes: being alone, being in a rut, mental inaction, conventional learning and feeling tied down.

The Gemini female is symbolic of the modern intelligent woman, questioning every convention and/or tradition. She is fun to know, although sometimes difficult to pin down. Her view of life is quite original and her mental qualities are first-class, but she is blessed with a light touch and is never boring. She likes to try out her ideas in conversation, flitting from one topic to another. Entertaining and amusing others is this female's idea of how to spend a pleasant evening. Still, she never imposes her views upon those around her, however forthright they may be. Perhaps the worse fault associated with this woman is a strange elusiveness that could be interpreted by some as the shelving of responsibility. Charming and lovable, she is not keen to adopt the more serious tasks of life prematurely and is never ready for an early long-term relationship. Indeed, it is preferable that this female remain unattached during her twenties so she can eventually settle down a little later in life with few regrets. The woman governed by this Sign needs constant change in order to be happy and if she is unable to change her scene, then she will change the cast of characters by keeping a variety of friends on a merry-go-round of entertaining...although not usually of a very elaborate scale. As a sweetheart, she is stimulating and never tedious. However, she is frequently somewhat undomesticated...or at least not particularly interested in the practical mechanics of running a household. Indeed, the Gemini woman's ideal home is a place where her family can feel free and relaxed, especially in expressing their individualities. As a mother, she is great fun but not always tolerant. In essence, her patience tends to run out rather quickly.

First and foremost an intellectual, the female ruled by Gemini will maintain her outside activities while in a long-term relationship. Of course, such activities may consume a great amount of time and a partner may resent this diffusion of interests. However, if there is to be harmony in the home, this condition had best be treated with tact. The Gemini woman is often talented in some well-paid line of employment...for she is not the long-suffering type who will work for next-to-nothing. Consequently, she has been referred to as mercenary. Indeed, she does rate herself very highly and demands compensation for her efforts. Refined and meticulous with an abhorrence for untidiness, the female governed by Gemini seldom undertakes her own work, instead directing efficiently and commanding obedience. This is a scintillating, well-informed and worldly soul who shines brightly in society. There is a certain flirtatious nature here but it is usually being employed in order to sharpen the wits and enjoy a battle of words. The common sense and protective instinct of this woman is exceedingly strong and she would never sacrifice a worthwhile relationship for one that she knows to be no more than a little conversational romance.
