They can also make excellent members of the Armed Forces, for they take danger no more seriously than anything else and can earn themselves a reputation for devotion to duty and heroic acts. In the arts they may excel in music, painting and sculpture. They make good psychic researchers of a sceptical kind. Negatively they can degenerate into confidence tricksters, thieves and even adepts in the black arts. Gemini rules the arms, shoulders, hands, lungs and nervous system and its subjects need to beware of diseases and accidents associated with the upper part of the body, as well as nervous and pulmonary disorders such as catarrh and bronchitis.
Their mercurial nature may also affect a constitution which is not strong if it is put under strain. You are prone to taking unnecessary risks and wind up harming yourself or others in the process. Sometimes pursuing pleasure too vigorously could also qualify as risk taking. As with all sun signs, we all have unique traits to our personalities. When these traits are suppressed, or unrealized, problems will arise. However, with astrology we can examine the problem and assess the proper solution based on the sun sign characteristics. As a Gemini you may see things below that really strike home.
Try the solution, you most likely will be amazed at the results. If you find yourself on the receiving end of the negatives below, it is because you are failing to express the positive. PROBLEM : Being superficial could be a big problem for you in your overall relationships with others and also in getting ahead on many jobs where you must endeavor to dig deep and learn something thoroughly.
This is the worst Gemini trait of all. If you make a commitment to something or someone you should mentally force yourself to keep that commitment where possible. This will be hard but it can, and has been, accomplished by many under this sign. PROBLEM : Not one who cares for peace and quiet, you create your own problems with loved ones by picking arguments or tale carrying from one to the other then stand back and enjoy the show.
SOLUTION : While this may relieve your boredom, it is something that you should not let happen as it could easily go out of control and cost you the love and companionship that you desire. When you feel like doing this it would be better to take a long walk and let the feelings pass. SOLUTION : You have a great many creative talents and if you put these to work for you in some sort of hobby or project you will find you do not have time to be bored, also, other physical activities should be considered: workouts at the gym, racketball, hiking, etc..
PROBLEM : You could have health problems brought on by overindulgence of food, drink, or the night life which only gets worse as you age. By keeping everything down to a mild roar you may not have to fight off diseases such as obesity or cirrhosis of the liver. SOLUTION : Cultivate the habit of not flirting with every attractive person you see and make up your mind to be a true and loving spouse, or don't commit until you are really ready to do this.

Your starstone is the moss agate. It has been shown to be beneficial to the health of Geminis who are suffering from circulatory problems and has been shown as an aid to getting your intuitive feelings tuned to a higher pitch. It is also an aid to relieving depression. There is another gemstone which is used for Gemini and that is the emerald, but the moss agate vibrates to the levels of your ruling planet, Mercury, and therefore is much more beneficial for you.
There is, and always have been, a controversy over "starstones". Starstones are NOT birthstones. I give you here in these pages the stones that are called your starstones, planet stones , which viberates the strongest to your planet or sign, NOT to the month that you were born.
I would also like it if those who think they know precisely what their stone is to go to the library and reference some good Astrology books such as 'Parkers Astrology'. Sorry for the confusion, but confusion over this topic has raged for hundreds of years. The Zodiac is made up of 12 different sun signs. Your date of birth determines which one you are.

Loyal beyond the call of duty, he does what he says and says what he does, and, even at the price of many sacrifices, never lets down those to whom he has given his word. His extreme candor and open-heartedness may sometimes work against him, but this does not disturb him to any noticeable degree; he seems to believe it is a lesser evil to be betrayed than to be deceptive.
His uncompromising honesty is indeed one of his finest qualities. Another of his outstanding qualities is his courage which could be equaled only by that of the Tiger. Once he takes up a task, he will see it through to the bitter end. Difficulties and obstacles only act as an incentive to his determination. He would not embark on an undertaking which does not offer tremendous challenges to his strength of purpose. A born adventurer, he has a taste for risks and never hesitates to gamble with life if necessary.
When it comes to truth, he is never afraid to speak it out although he is perfectly conscious of all the dangers his total frankness may entail. But while his Tiger counterpart tends to pursue Herculean, impossible enterprises, the Horse man is more realistic and pragmatic. He is more conscious of his own limits and reluctant to bite more than he can chew. While his practical approach to problems and affairs does not give him a very glamorous aura, it does help him achieve good results and avoid many deceptions.
In compensation for his lack of glamour, he is endowed with an unusually sharp mind. His great presence of mind enables him to handle all emergencies effortlessly and gracefully. Besides, it is not impossible for him to have occasional flashes of prophetic vision which help him gain an appreciable advantage over others.
As already indicated, the Horse male is no introvert. His comportment is completely turned outside, which makes him one of the most gregarious types. He needs and seeks the company of men and women of every walk of life. He loves mixing with people and is frequently seen at the very hub of places where there are entertainers or large gatherings. He enjoys all outdoor activities and involves himself unrestrainedly in all sports, either as a participant or spectator. He has a conspicuous penchant for races, probably because he is a Horse himself.
Because he sincerely likes people, friendliness is well to the fore of his personality. Warm, cheerful, debonair, having an easy laugh, and wearing his heart on his sleeve, he is very popular with many people. One always feels at ease in his congenial company. He shows a true and spontaneous interest in all those he meets — in fact, in all that is human.
He likes giving pleasure, rarely refusing to do a favor asked of him and denying nothing to his loved ones. Unfortunately, he tends to make promises which he may not be able to honor either because there are too many of them or because they are well above his forces. In any case there is in him not a single streak of pettiness. Very vulnerable to coldness and rejection, he spares no efforts to get himself entrusted with confidences, which he perfectly knows how to respect.
Aquarius Horoscope | September | Monthly Horoscopes |
If sometimes he does intervene in the lives of other people, it is simply out of his concern for their welfare, not because he wants to meddle in their own affairs. He does not bear ill will beyond the heat of the moment and is capable of demonstrating quick and sincere regret for whatever wrong he does. First of all, this man has keenly pronounced likes and dislikes. There is no question for him to be subtle, to make room for various shades and tones.
Love Your Local Band: Eve of Eden
Black or white, all or nothing are his invariable way of reacting to people, ideas, and events. Once he has made his choice — once he has decided to love or hate something — he is likely to stick to his stand until his death, even though subsequent circumstances may make it necessary for him to reverse or modify his preferences or aversions. Closely related to this is his opinionatedness.
It is almost always a mistake with this man to make a point of defending any idea or position, for your arguments will never sway or convince him and will certainly fall on deaf ears. The native is unyieldingly positive in his views — so unyieldingly that practically no compromise can be expected from him. If he is fond of heated discussions, it is not so much because he is eager to find truth as because he is determined to prove his point.
His habitual way of phrasing his ideas is often in itself a clear indication of his conviction that he knows all the answers. Moreover, he is very susceptible to contradiction and unable to accept criticisms gracefully. There is no mistaking that he takes himself too seriously and lacks the sense of humor and tolerance. He can be as vicious as the next man. The list of his minor vices usually includes boastfulness, cynicism, enviousness, rudeness, lack of tact, criticalness, verbosity, self-conceit, and self-sufficiency. Lastly, he is a quick-tempered person, with his fits of rage flaring up in a split second and with his tendency to become something of a tyrant for those around him.
His productivity The native of the Horse is one of the ablest men in the professional field. Once he has decided to take up a job, there is every likelihood he will succeed in it and his competence will be recognized tacitly or explicitly by both his colleagues and opponents. What is important is that he be allowed to choose the right occupation, for his adaptability is rather limited. In general this subject always longs to make some sort of career out of travel. He will be like a fish in water if his profession requires frequent trips, preferably trips to faraway lands.
Changes of scenery are for him an invaluable source of inspiration and enthusiasm. He can do extremely well as a commercial traveler, a travel agency representative, or a leisure-time club leader. Journalism under all form suits him perfectly. He can also make an interpreter participating in all kinds of meetings and conferences.
Having a good flair for lucrative deals, he is likely to make a fortune in all professions which allow him to have contact with other people, particularly in import-export business which affords him the opportunity to get involved with citizens of various countries.
Since he likes all sports and outdoor activities, it is frequent to see him work as a professional sportsman, stable-lad, jockey, sport coach, or camp counselor. If he is a fireman or highway policeman, we can be sure he enjoys his job immensely. His taste for risks sometimes lands him in perilous activities, and we can find him a pioneer, revolutionary, kamikaze, commando, counter-insurgency fighter, or member of the French Foreign Legion.
His interest in the future is an inescapable part of his character. He is therefore a passionate futurologist. Science fiction may be his specialty, whether as a writer or movie director. Naturally interested in research and education as the keys to the morrow, he works with equal enthusiasm in a laboratory or classroom. But he should guard himself against demagoguery, for he has the outstanding ability to sway the crowd.
As a rule the Horse male prefers being his own boss and only pursues occupations or professions where nobody is in a position to tell him what to do and when and how to do it. It is surprising, then, to see him in the civil or military service. But in this case we can be sure of two alternatives: He will give up his job at the first opportunity, or he will climb up to the very top of the hierarchy in a short time.
It should not be forgotten that he is sensitive to honors and ranks among those who take particular pride in wearing medals and ribbons on their chests. Diplomacy is certainly not a field of activity for him, given his outspokenness and hot-headedness. Nor are speculative sciences such as philosophy or theology. History may interest him insofar as it helps to have a better understanding of and command over the future. He hates sedentary works in general and can only make an unhappy farmer.
The career is something of great importance to this man, and he generally works at it steadily and conscientiously. But he may from time to time take a fancy to get-rich-quick schemes, plunges into them head-on, and comes out wealthy — or ruined! His love behavior The Horse man may be said to be fickle in love. But his is a special brand of fickleness, which has nothing in common with, say, that of the Snake man. Any of his instances of infidelity can be traced back to a perfectly understandable feeling of insecurity or dissatisfaction.
He is no inveterate philanderer and does not allow his eye to wander as a matter of compulsive propensity. It is why he is a specialist of short-lived liaisons. If he is strongly attracted to glamorous women and if married women have a special appeal to him, it is because he feels an involvement with them can help him gain emotional stability — despite all his outward self-confidence he rather lacks self-assurance when it comes to love matters.
His candor is sometimes utterly disarming. He readily confesses to his legitimate mate all his flirtations and infidelities, giving out as many details as she may be curious to know. But she had better try to find out the reason for his promiscuity and act accordingly instead of losing her temper, for her outbursts of jealousy would receive little sympathy, compassion, or understanding from him. He imposes his authority on all people living under his roof, regardless of their ages or ranks. He means to be obeyed and respected, and it never comes to his mind that his rule could be challenged.
To him, there is nothing effeminate or degrading in helping around the home. His willingness to build a large family is ever apparent, and he likes to be surrounded when he is at home. It is impossible to resign himself to give up his personal freedom and love of change completely; he must, at least, retain the illusion of remaining as unattached as air.
Despite all his sincere love for his family, he gets bored with it easily and prefers spending much of his time away from it. The singles bar of the quarter or a sport club are often his watering holes. In addition, he is ever on the lookout for various pretexts to go on trips; he will not forget, however, to write or phone home passionately and bring back wonderful presents for his wife and children.
Every now and then he does suffer from pangs of guilt over his lack of total loyalty and devotion to his family; but it is rare he gets beyond this stage of pious conscience. Love is to him a distinctive handicap — not a stimulus — to success on other fronts, for it blinds him to everything else. When he loves, he loves without reserve of any kind and is too ready to give up everything for the sake of his loved one. He then allows himself to be completely besieged by the object of his love, to live only for her, to react to her every look, gesture, and wish.
He is capable of being very loyal to a female if he really loves her and if she is clever enough to help him preserve the fiction of his desirability, independence, and personal freedom. No one can make a more enthusiastic mate than a well-loved and trusted Horse. But when he has decided to love no more for one reason or another, there is nothing his woman could do to make him change his mind, or rather, his heart.
From now on he will be moved only by a vague feeling of pity, and what he will do for her will be strictly prompted by his sense of duty. All entreaties or vituperations will leave him completely unruffled. What kind of woman does he seek in life? For reasons invoked before, he has a pronounced weakness for beautiful, sexy, glamorous, and aggressive partners, and looks down on those who play clinging vines or decorative objects. He needs a woman who constantly reinforces his highest opinion of himself, who believes in all his dreams, and who challenges him with her own independence.
His nature will reach its highest level when he is involved with such a companion. To put it differently, what he wants in a female is a complete understanding of his aspirations and emotional needs. But he proves an impossible lover or husband for a professional termagant, for he can be ten times as vicious as she. Unless he is severely perverted, this man can be as clever in the bedroom as he is in his import-export office.
He looks for a high quality in his physical relations. His approach to sex is generally airy, tinged with much sensuality, affection, delicacy, and, surprisingly enough, a good dose of modesty. Perfectly able to switch off problems instantaneously once in bed, he makes love with gusto and does not bear coolness or coquetry. Sex games may interest him to some extent, but if they are too involved he will end up confused and frustrated.
He needs plenty of sexual activity to keep himself happy and can display considerable sexual endurance. Although he firmly believes in equality within a relationship, he cannot help from time to time feeling somewhat domineering and sadistic when making love; but in general his partners are hardly aware of it.
from Daniel Giamario
To say she is beautiful would amount to making an overstatement; there is nevertheless no denying her attractiveness and natural charm. Her overall physique unmistakably gives out an air of a thoroughbred and distinction. However, she often leans toward flamboyance in dress and manner, unafraid to verge on eccentricity and dubious taste; her comportment is less an attention-getting device than a way to convey her fierce claim to independence and disregard of convention. Unless adversely aspected, this woman generally bubbles over with health and vitality.
Her demeanor expresses a great deal of self-confidence, ease, equilibrium, a frank and open manner. Her appearance is as rule athletic and in full bloom. Overactive, restless, with quick movements and vigorous gestures, she has a taste for physical exertion and finds nothing more depressing than idleness. She is graced with a solid sense of rhythm and movement, just as the Rabbit woman; but unlike her feline counterpart, she as the woman; but unlike her feline counterpart, she enjoys great self-assurance and is on good terms with her own body instead of feeling clumsy about it.
Her physical presence is always strongly felt by others, and she would be quite surprised should she meet someone who would remain indifferent to her. With her very expressive face which faithfully translates every hue of all her emotions, the Horse woman is incapable of concealing the various states of her soul and remaining impassive; usually radiant, her expression may suddenly darken and show menacing signs under the effect of a strong feeling or melancholic thought.
Her eyes are extremely clear, lively, mobile, with a somewhat provocative gleam; she never lowers her gaze and is prone to stare at other people out of their countenance. Her mouth is large, her lips full and fleshy, her teeth well planted and long. Her resonant, cheerful voice constitutes one of her most distinctive characteristics.
Aquarius Monthly Horoscope
One can often recognize the female of this sign by her wiry build, the manner she keeps herself upright, her relatively large shoulders, short chest, long arms and thighs. Although not very feminine by current standards, she is pleasing and sexy in her own way and sees no reason to envy other women in this respect.
This woman has about the same physical weaknesses and pathological predispositions as her masculine counterpart. Her exceptionally fragile liver often proves the seat of a host of disorders, minor and major; so is her capricious gall-bladder. However, she rarely shows a willingness to take appropriate steps to prevent trouble. Naturally greedy, she likes to eat everything without discrimination and does not care about overeating.
When things do not go according to plan she tends to console herself by ingesting large quantities of high-calorie foods such as pastry, thus making herself more vulnerable yet. Unfortunately for her, emotions generally have the effect of intensifying instead of lowering her appetite.
She is also liable to allergic reactions, which may show themselves in various ways — by provoking skin affections, fever, digestive upheavals, or every sign of hay fever. They do not seem to result from the action of material agents such as mold spores or pollutants, but more clearly have their origins in her very psyche and can generally be accounted for by her strong emotions, annoyances, suppressed angers, deceptions, and the like. Such reactions are all the more difficult to circumvent as she displays constant emotional instability to a very marked degree.
She is wont to pass quickly, without warning signs, from laughter to tears, from serenity to trepidation, from affability to aggressiveness, from good humor to deep gloom.
Her temperament resembles the summer weather, where sunshine and thunderstorms alternate without transition. Despite the lot of her miseries, the average Horse female has high hopes of living to a ripe old age if she earnestly takes correct measures to keep herself fit. She must first of all try by all means to secure emotional stability — she is often so high-strung that nervous breakdowns become a regular part of her existence.
While there is nothing original in advising her to lead a wholesome, well-balanced, and stress-free life, she could not expect to find happiness without a good physical and moral equilibrium. She has to learn to appreciate leisure — reading, listening to good classic music, the pursuit of some artistic activity, relaxation, or meditation are all a good means to achieve peace of body and mind. There may be no need to incite her to do some regular physical exercise since she loves outdoor life and open-air sports, particularly horseriding and golf.
As for her troubled reproductive organs, surveillance by a good gynecologist is often sufficient in keeping them functioning properly. She must above all be careful about her diet. Carbohydrates and in general all foods that are too rich or too heavy are detrimental to her hypersensitive liver and gall-bladder. Spinach, asparagus, and sorrel — all of them rich in oxalic acid — must be avoided as they can do her great harm. She had better refrain from alcohol and tobacco altogether despite the strong temptation to use them. She would be well advised to eat barbecued meats, seafood, salads, and a lot of green vegetables.
It is in her vital interest to observe alimentary moderation, allowing nevertheless for some excess every now and then in order to safeguard or boost her joy of living. Her psychology The general belief that women are weak-willed could not find confirmation in the Horse female. This is an individual of unusually strong personality and character, who knows exactly what she wants and does not allow anything to discourage her from pursuing her objectives.
Once she has made up her mind, she carries through with as much energy and dedication as could be wished. Her greatest gift in life comes from trusting herself, which enables her to look forward to the future with unshakable confidence and enthusiasm. She is quite prepared to meet life frontally, unflinchingly, never bothering to blame her difficulties or failures on others or circumstances. Capable of great brilliance and daring, she has the courage of her ideas, dreams with force, and firmly believes in what she does or projects.
Her convictions are usually so total and strong that it is rarely difficult for her to convert other people to her viewpoint. This subject is endowed with outstanding intellectual qualities. Her reactions are rapid and accurate, which allows her to handle with great ease most difficult situations that have arisen unexpectedly. One can always rely on her resilience and presence of mind.
Having a lucid, unbiased intellect, she thinks quickly and, aided by her sharp intuition, can find the right solution to problems which would require much more time of other people. Her avidity to know seems insatiable. She is interested in everything imaginable, reads voraciously, and large opportunities are sought out which may enable her to grasp the meaning of the entire universe.
An eternal student, she finds it hard to understand those who are not keen on seeking to expand their knowledge. Her wide views and open-mindedness are indeed high on the list of her strengths. Exactly like her brother of the sign, the Horse woman is uncompromising in her love of freedom. To her, a lack of freedom is synonymous with death; it is why she always insists on going her own way and views with a jealous eye anything that may directly or indirectly impair her liberty of choice.
She makes it a point of honor to combat conformism and bourgeois-inspired behavior. And she is never afraid to pose as a diehard iconoclast in her tastes and manners. Few people would be imbued with as much optimism as this woman. Dejection and despondency are practically unknown to her; so is cynicism. She is always confident that things will straighten themselves out in the end, however adverse present circumstances may be. Later in life she will certainly lose part of her high hope, but will still retain her tendency to look on the brighter side of life and preserve her high spirits, motivation, and impetuosity.
Although excessively emotional more often than is warranted, the native proves guileless for the most part. She is forthright, frank, open-hearted, direct, and likes so much to tell the truth that she simply ignores tact and diplomacy. Her honesty and integrity are above any kind of reproach — she would never stoops to do anything devious or duplicitous. On the other hand, she never lacks the courage to speak out her mind or act in accordance with her own convictions. The Horse female undoubtedly ranks among the most sociable creatures on earth.
She has the amazing ability to make friends everywhere and with a minimum of time. People are attracted to her by her above-board and straightforward manner. She sincerely enjoys crowds and likes having fun with others. Her conversation is often witty, gay, and amusing. She loves giving parties and entertains with such expertise that her guests, including the most difficult ones, can always have a good time.
No wonder why she almost never suffers from solitude and moodiness. Her main secret in keeping friends is her irreproachable loyalty. She will remain absolutely faithful and dependable once she has formed friendly relations with somebody. One can never see her turn down a friend in real need. It is here that she does honor to her own sex by proving that women are perfectly capable of true friendship.
In contrast to her prominent qualities, the native does have some notorious drawbacks, which however make her all the more human. Her worst defect is indisputably her exacerbated egoism. She only lives for herself and serves her own interests. If she honors her friends, it is precisely because she has chosen them in all freedom; but her relations with members of her own family, who have been imposed on her by Nature, are often less than lukewarm, and her kins had better not count on her loyalty and support of any kind.
This explains why the Horse woman, along with her male counterpart, is not well considered in Asian societies, where family devotion is viewed as a prime virtue. Perhaps only the Dragon woman can equal this character in self-pride and touchiness. The Horse-born female has the solid reputation of being an arguer and quibbler. She always wants to have the last word to say in everything and insists on being right at all costs.
When she can foresee the possibility of winning a discussion, she will not resist her tendency to speak in a presumptuous and peremptory manner; but when she finds herself in a weak position, then she will refuse to argue by keeping contemptuously silent. There is every likelihood that she will carry this comportment far into old age, although time will certainly help her acquire some philosophy, indulgence, and fair play.
While there is nothing she can care less about than the susceptibilities of others, she feels easily hurt by the smallest slight, be it intentional or unintentional. Rejection makes her suffer more acutely than anything else, and she usually reacts to it by either pouting, or flying into a thunderous temper, or growing particularly tough and aggressive.
Because she lacks a good sense of humor, it is hard for her to play it cool when she becomes the target of some affront. She would react with exceptional violence if someone were to doubt her ability or honesty. In the same vein, she does not feel well at ease in this man-run world. Overconscious of her abilities but unable to deal with life in a realistic way, this ardent feminist contemplates nothing less than the total destruction of our present patriarchal society. She is not afraid in her crusade to commit excesses or absurdities. She means not only to make her dignity upheld and her independence respected, but also to humiliate men in general as a matter of revenge — for vindictiveness is well one of her traits of character.
Despite her uncommon courage and motivation, the Horse woman sometimes lacks strength of purpose.
