A Mutable Sign
Gemini, you are the 3rd sign of the Zodiac – here is your geometric arrow design. I incorporate lots of information into the design so read on to find the secrets encoded in Gemini’s arrow.
The sign of the twins is one of the four MUTABLE signs (the other three being Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces). The mutable signs have adaptability in common but the trait shows in different ways. Those with Gemini strong in their charts are most adaptable or changeable in their ideas and ways of thinking. The glyph or symbol for mutable is an arched line with a dot below in the middle. On my Gemini arrow, you see the symbol in the top third of the design.
An Air Sign
Gemini is an Air sign – The glyph or symbol for this element is an upward pointing triangle with a line across it. The other Air signs are Aquarius and Libra. Air signs like to gather and process information. We need Air signs for thought, communication and intellectual activity. You can see the glyph or symbol for Air almost at the centre of the arrow. The glyph or symbol for this element is an upward pointing triangle with a line across it.
Each sign of the Zodiac is ruled by a planet (or co-ruled by two). Gemini is ruled by Mercury – the only planet to combine both male and female qualities. Its symbol is a little like the symbol for female – a circle resting on top of a cross. In addition however, there is a curve like a sickle moon on the top. It’s just below halfway on the arrow. Gemini can be very inconsistent and mentally nervous. All the planets of our solar system are in each person’s chart and Mercury shows your communication and intellectual interests and how you express these.
Groups of Planets
The planets in a chart are described as personal (The “Luminaries” Sun and Moon, Mercury, Venus and Mars) and are the more inner planets. Social planets come next (Jupiter and Saturn). Transpersonal or outer planets are Uranus, Neptune and Pluto. (Yes, Pluto is now classed as a dwarf planet but it still functions as a planet in Astrology. Other bodies such as Eris, Ceres etc can also be taken into account in a chart.) Gemini’s ruling planet of Mercury is a personal planet and close to the Earth in terms of the Solar System. Almost at the top of the arrow directly below the arrowhead I have drawn a single diagonal line to show this. (I draw one for the personal, two for social and three for the transpersonal planets.)
Although each sign has its own glyph or symbol, rather than stay traditional all the way I have incorporated my own idea into each arrow. For Gemini I have shown twin mountain peaks overlapping to form several other smaller triangles. This is to signify that this sign can think in many different ways and on different levels. The background circle signifies communication and how Gemini can communicate beyond the normal boundaries.
The arrowhead emphasises changeability and the reconciliation of opposing or differing aspects of ourselves. Black and white are in harmony despite the different shapes within the outline of the arrowhead.
The bottom of the arrow is the palmistry symbol for teaching. Another side of Gemini is teaching and learning – the acquisition of knowledge. They are often found in the world of computers – a Mercurial development.
The constellation for Gemini completes the geometric design. The stars are drawn in orange – neither red nor yellow, but combining the two.
