Gemini Decan 1 is ruled by Jupiter and Mercury of the Gemini triplicity. The sun crusades through the constellations of Taurus the Bull, Perseus the Hero, the Sculptors Chisel and the River from May 20 to 31. This section of the sky houses the famous star clusters the Hyades, the Pleiades, and royal star Aldebaran in the Bull’s eye. These clusters have stormy reputations, Alcyone is scandalous in love and the Hyades bring tears and violence. Perseus is not the most sedate fellow either, brandishing his sword and grasping poor Medusa’s decapitated head.
Dandy Warriors & Geek Chic
The “Good V Evil’ duality of Gemini is strong here not just because it is the Gemini decan, but mainly because of Aldebaran’s dragon-slaying tendency. As St Micheal, god’s first soldier, he is therefore the chief slayer of all things Satanic. With Jupiter’s influence here then, we get activists and militants who are on a spiritual or religious mission to add to already zealous theme.
So Gemini Decan 1 see themselves as spiritual warriors and reformers, they are on this earth to stamp out evil! This area is also very artistic, so those in the entertainment business here will always have a socio-political message behind what they do. Gemini Decan 1 also want to gain status, and be admired for their intellect. These people are great conversationalists, come out with great one liners and have the ability to abruptly and skilfully steer the discussion off any subject matter that is not their forte. The last thing these brainiacs want to appear is stupid!
