Gemini decan 3 is ruled by the Sun and god of the solar system. A most high and mighty ruler is totally fitting for this section of the ecliptic. The solar king shines through the Hunter, Dove, Bull’s Horns and the Charioteer from June 12 to 20. Gemini decan 3 is absolutely jam-packed with bright and fortunate stars. It contains one arm of the Milky Way and is home to the Great Orion Nebula. This super-rich realm is known as the star nursery. This is a multi-talented, multi-tasking, multi-faceted super-parent who wants it all and does it all. Like tropical Gemini, this decan has two sides to it and each one is just as forceful and strong as the other. On the one hand, we have the peaceful dove and the nursing goat.

This is the life-giver, birthplace of stars, the ever-nourishing Milky Way that flows from the breast of Nut the sky goddess. On the other hand, we have the hunter, the destroyer of life, the mighty warrior, the potent phallus. Here we can either have the battle of the sexes or the sacred marriage of the god and the goddess.
Some native Indian tribes maintain that souls enter into existence though the area between constellations Taurus and Gemini. Gemini decan 3 actually is the section of the ecliptic which falls between the horns of the Bull and the foot of Castor the mortal twin. This area aligns perfectly (In longtitude) with the Great Orion Nebula, which is positioned near the tip of the Hunters phallic belt sword.
These stars are like little starry sperm. Orions Nebula is probably the most photographed nebula in the sky and has fascinated us for thousands of years. It has even been suggested that this nebula underlies Michelangelo’s Creation on the ceiling of the Vatican’s Sistine chapel. Well that’s this decan all over isn’t it? In that one image you get god, creation and the occult.
