The Constellation “Gemini” — the third of the Zodiac — exerts its influence from May 20 to June 18.
It endows the subject born during this period with probity, a pleasing, accommodating disposition, a temper quickly irritated but just as quickly calmed down, showing but little violence in its outbursts and a great promptitude in manifesting repentance. The sign of Gemini often promises some kind of celebrity.
It gives the subject natural, inventive genius, and, with it, a love of science for its own sake; it urges him to follow scientific researches, especially in the line of mathematics, and often makes him an orator or an author. It endows him, also, with some talents for commerce, with a saving disposition and moderation in the use of all things.
It renders him scrupulously honest, fair-minded, and noble-hearted; he will possess a subtle, quick-seeing mind, an easy-flowing mode of speech; but the latter quality will manifest itself only when the subject is talking about some favorite topic of his; otherwise, he is rather reserved, even to taciturnity and often suffers strange perplexities and hesitations when the moment
to act has arrived.
The expression of his will is firm, sometimes too affirmative, but without tyrannical tendencies, and without roughness.
Besides the scientific talents mentioned above, Gemini also gives a taste for fine arts, for music, especially the study of harmony, counterpoint, etc. In the scientific line, chemistry will be a prime favorite.
The wealth acquired by the practice of the talents above mentioned will lead the subject to many ups and downs, which, at times, will leave him almost in want, when, at other moments, his fortune will be quite large.
It will be the same as to the positions occupied by him; they will lack stability, now very brilliant, now again, of the humblest. These fluctuations will all be due to the subject’s own acts.
This sign always foretells family secrets and family disagreements. Great trials will have to be gone through on account of, or caused by the subject’s father.
Numerous will be the subject’s children; some enmity will unfortunately be developed among them, and against their father or mother, or both.
The diseases that will be most threatening are bladder troubles, epidemic fevers, malaria; great perils will be incurred through quadrupeds, also from venomous bites and from enemies bent on serious mischief. The subject’s family, his employes, or servants, will show themselves painfully and actively unfriendly toward him.
Great sorrows, troubles and disappointments will be caused by love affairs. There will be several marriages or long attachments in the subject’s life.
He will have friends of all sorts and conditions, several of whom will turn his bitter enemies.
Toward middle life, he will meet with persistent obstacles to his success and legitimate promotion; they will be brought about by enmities to be found in the church or in the law profession. He will be to blame for the fact that these persons will be his enemies.
The position occupied by the subject and constituting his life work will often be of a dual nature; he will constantly attempt to run two things at once; hence, many complications in his social relations. A disastrous betrayal is to be feared.
This sign foretells the existence of persistent, often armed enemies; the subject may even be waylaid. He will have cause to suspect his immediate associates, his relatives by marriage; he will suffer cruelly from tireless calumnies, from low intrigues relating to secrets in his family or that of his wife.
Gemini always announces events of a violent nature; but Providence may save the subject from their worst consequences.
The subject will have a sanguine-bilious constitution in a southern latitude, and a bilious-nervous temperament in a northern one.
