The geminian is always right and never changes his mind - until the next time the argument comes around, when he will take a totally different stand, and deny ever having given vent to his earlier opinions. This is infurirating for his opponents in argument, especially as he has a considerable talent for dialogue - and a tendency to know a very little about a very great number of things, and to master this knowledge skilfully as to seem well informed. His ability to bluff his way out of tight corners is penomenal!
There, then, are his worst faults - inconsistancy and superficiality. Little wonder, perhaps, that the world’s most popular journalists in newspaper, radio, and television are Geminians. For, again, they have an insitent urge to communicate: women will spend hours gossiping on the telephone, the more intelectual Geminian will be constantly writing to the press, lecturing, appearing on TV ‘chat’ shows, addressing meetings… driven to desperation in his quest for someone to impress with his opinions, the Geminian will collar an old tramp on the street corner and address him. His ideas must be spread about.
The Geminian will always be on the go, and generally speaking, will be doing more than one thing at a time. This duality is an important part of his nature, and it would be unwise for anyone to attempt to hinder it; the Geminian needs plenty of variety and change. He can very easily become bored, and his answer to drop whatever is boring him, and to turn the next job on hand. The phrase to live on one’s nerves’ seems to have been coined for Geminians; and they should be careful not to overstrain their sensitive and highly strung nervous system, which can break down under preasure. But they have their bodies on their side, for Gemini is considered the most useful Sign.
