Gemini Ascendant: the old child

Gemini Ascendant people tend to hide a high level of intelligence under a mask of playful cleverness. They often don’t like to sound or appear too serious in public and prefer to communicate their ideas in a more accessible manner. Often, they have a very vivid ability to convey a lot through body language! They make great impressions of accents and characters. They are quick thinkers and avid book readers and possible musicians and writers. They collect information and knowledge about their environment at lightning speed. They need someone to bounce ideas off of and enjoy playing devil’s advocate. People matter a lot to them and their friends may take a central role in how they feel. This is because they can easily feel blocked if they have no one to share and “play” with them.  If they can’t express or speak up about what is on their mind they tend to become depressed.  Some Gemini’s rising people are less verbal and more visual but even in that case, they might express well through poetry. They go through phases of being very chatty and silent as a stone. They are generally not too emotional and don’t care to protect their heart. In fact, they care if something is “interesting” not if something is morally right or if it feels good.

In the sense, they are not selfish people because they are less focused on indulging their feelings. Yet, their morals are easily clouded by that same search for meaning. The journey can take a central stage not the destination. This makes them very open-minded but not always consistent. Even the most dogmatic and idealistic types tend to become disillusioned with their beliefs at some point along the years. They tend to be social chameleon’s that are hard to truly get to know. They will not show the same face to two different people. That makes them usually highly popular and well-liked because they are fun to be around.  At the same time, people might feel confused and unsure where they stand with the Gemini rising.  They may never know if they are truly liked or just tolerated for the sake of “interest”.

Over time, a Gemini rising will develop a more solid conviction about the world and their place in it. They tend to stick to the big important ideas and are very loyal to making an impact by communicating those convictions. As you can guess, Gemini rising people have a natural talent in politics and can use that to their advantage. They are brilliant at juggling people and can be very appealing. Like a child caught stealing cookies, they have a natural appearance of innocence that gets them out of trouble. They tend to have something pure and youthful about them, they’re eyes are often clear and sparkling with mirth. Thier body language expressive and lively and their energy infectious. The men are usually tall, with lean long limbs and a high forehead. The women have a doll-like sweet appearance and a delicate body. Many enjoy dressing up in costumes or changing their appearance into something more exciting and colorful.

Sagittarius rules their 7th house, therefore they need to balance they need to information with bigger (Jupiter) convictions and beliefs. They must have a larger vision that directs them in life…Some bigger goal. They may seek this direction in a foreign culture or by going on a journey. Doing this will be highly beneficial to them and help them understand what they are really looking for. Dating a partner that makes them have a new larger view of life is very attractive to them.

If we continue and look at the signs that rule the houses we can see other patterns emerge. The 2nd house is ruled by Cancer, this means that Gemini rising people have a sentimental spot for their family. They may show a side that is more feeling only towards those closest to them. They have a lot of memories from childhood that makes up their sense of inner security. Thye can become nostalgic for their childhood and all the games they played. It also means that they have a good instinct for money and making it come to them. They may dream of a big warm happy home for themselves.

The 3rd house is ruled by Leo, this means they need to shine and be heard. They need a public to hear them out and listen to their ideas. They could have some ego battles with their brothers and sisters. Yet, they are also somewhat proud and protective of their extended family. They may have had crazy adventures during school years…And played some pranks or got into battles with bullies.

The 4th house is ruled by Virgo, probably they learned a lot of their communicative ability at home. One of both of the parents was very well learned and passed that on. As adults, they expressed this wisdom and knowledge in a different way. Maybe they rebelled against the more heavy and structured way information was passed on by the family. They may have disliked the rules and details that were forced on their mind. The home was probably nurturing to them on a low level. Thye may have got what they needed but at some point felt they needed to leave and achieve their dreams.

The 5th house is ruled by Libra, this means they are very adept at social gatherings and have a beautiful way of expressing themselves. They are also romantics and enjoy the “game” of love. They can become very polite and diplomatic during courtship. They are charmers! This also means that achieving their individuality can be done by learning to get along with people and being more diplomatic.

The 6th house is ruled by Scorpio, this means that stress can show up as health issues. Stress around sexuality or secrets that they can’t talk about especially. Daily routines can be where they feel they need to have more control. They can also be secretive about their job or what they actually do day to do. They like to have a private bubble to escape into. In that place, they are kings and queens.

The 8th house is ruled by Capricorn, they will work very hard to achieve their ambitions and secure money. Thye can inherit money from other men or through management. They may be good at dealing with money because they show responsibility around that area. They are somewhat conservative about spending cash. Thye won’t but low-quality things or things they don’t need. Thye have a secret instinct about money and other people.

The 9th house is ruled by Aquarius, this means they will meet many friends through higher education or travel. Thye will not follow the rules about how to do either of these things. Thye may have a hard time staying in one school or institution if it means following the rules. Thye may have a very sharp brilliant mind that grasps philosophy or science with ease.

The 10th house is ruled by Pisces, they may have unrealistic ideas about who they want to be in society. Thye may have big dreams about success and social standing. They are elusive to the public and can be a chameleon depending on the job. They have an acting ability. They need who they become to be of service to society.

Hope you enjoyed! 🙂

Chiron in the Houses

Chiron in our chart is that painful itchy spot in our psyche. It is that place where we feel most vulnerable and least capable of dealing with rationally. I don’t think it ever stops hurting…But we learn to deal with it better.

We must remember we ALL have our pain to carry. I think Chiron calls for acceptance of that wound, allow it to scar and wear it to battle with pride. Sometimes it will have bad days, it will burn and hurt to the bottom of your soul. Some days you can look at it and be proud of how far you have come- regardless of the pain. You will only see the scar but it will be numb.

What about healing you ask? Well, Chiron is often our most “wise” aspect. It shows us great pain but also the reasons for it. The healing is made of acceptance and wisdom gained… At least in my experience, completely healing a Chiron wound never means not experiencing it again. Instead, I find the potential for healing has more to do with other people. Chiron shows the area where you can help other people heal. That has been my experience of it. I have Chiron in the 11th house, so friendships/bullying in groups are the areas of pain. I become like a small weak child it those areas when that wound is reopened. This is usually related to childhood conditioning and “triggers”.

My healing of Chiron is about wanting and knowing how to help those people in society that feel “different” and strange. Having known the feeling myself I know what they need and feel very passionate about protecting people who are bullied. So yes, Chiron is both that small scared child and wise old man.

In a natal chart, I would definitely pay attention if you have Chiron conjunct an angel or aspecting other planets. Transits too can show you how your Chiron story tends to play out.

Chiron in the first house: Your greatest wound is related to your sense of identity and importance. Early life experiences didn’t allow you to express your personality in a way that fits what you want to convey. You may have been bullied or ridiculed as a child. You appear vulnerable to other people.

Chiron in the second house: You have a lot of pain around feeling safe and secure. You may lack the structure of support to feel like you have a place to fall on a rainy day. You may hurt over matters of self-value and stability.

Chiron in the third house: You may have felt inadequate in school. Maybe had speech/learning hardships. Teachers and neighbors may have been too harsh. You have pain over being misunderstood.

Chiron in the fourth house: You have pain about your family roots and past. Maybe your relatives have big problems that effected you. The family may have been too weak to defend and take care of you.

Chiron in the 5th house: You may have received backlashes from people when expressing yourself. You have pain around your creative impulse and individuality. Something may have happened when you were letting your guard down and “having fun”. Romance may be an area where things got twisted.

Chiron in the 6th house: You have pain about being of service to other people. Maybe daily chores and things that seem mundane cause you a lot of anxiety. The pain is around getting things done and worrying about health.

Chiron in the 7th house: Your relationships may have caused a lot of painful conflicts. You seem to get uncalled for reactions from others. Long-term intimacy is you vulnerable area. You also really seek approval from other people when in a low place.

Chiron in the 8th house: You have pain around secrets/ family money and values. Sex is an area you understand well but can get lost in. Hidden forces cause you fear or trigger obsessive responses/addictions.

Chiron in the 9th house: You may have felt you are not smart enough. Your personal philosophy may not fit in. You may reject the idea of higher education. You have pain around feeling free to do and go where you want. You have views that make you an outsider.

Chiron in the 10th house: You may have pain around your status in society. You may feel no matter what you achieve you are still not deserving. You may take a hit to your image when you feel your strongest. You can’t join the “high” club (in your mind).

Chiron in the 11th house: You may have pain around friendships and groups. Groups may be a source of rejection or bullying. You are an underdog. Groups cause anxiety.

Chiron in the 12th house: You have deep pain that comes through in dreams and messages. You have pain about society and some unknown truth. Fears that come through the veil of existence.
