Gemini Decan 1 is ruled by Jupiter and Mercury (Gemini triplicity). The sun crusades through the constellations of Taurus the Bull, Perseus the Hero, the Sculptors Chisel and the River from May 21 to 31. This section of the sky houses the famous star clusters the Hyades, the Pleiades, and the 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.
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 the already zealous theme. So Gemini Decan 1 see themselves as spiritual warriors and reformers, they are on this earth to stamp out evil!… (Continued in eBook)

The tarot card associated with Gemini Decan 1 is the 8 of swords. Unfortunately, the air signs are stuck with the swords suit as representing them so the imagery is not going to be so positive. We must remember that these cards mustbe read slightly differently when associated with the decans as they will show the lessons learned in other lifetimes and karma that may have already been paid back. In this case, you can see already that this intense decan has Alcyone, the Hyades and Aldebaran no less. This is an old soul who has learned many, many harsh lessons.
With this decan, it is vitally important to break out of the negative cycle of doom and gloom and realise that the worst is OVER! “With the Eight of Swords, there is often a failure to take responsibility for your situation. You will not act or take control. Instead, you wait for others to come to your rescue….in the majority of cases suggests that the problem you are in is more than likely of your own making. Yes, we do get into binds or get caught in traps created by other people, but then allow ourselves or give permission to be taken, prisoner.” ~ Teach Me Tarot. With Aldebaran the royal star here it is entirely possible to become your own saviour, but you may just be too blind to see that…(Continued in eBook)

Ascendant Gemini 1
Alcyone 0º ~ “Blindness, ophthalmia injuries to the eyes and face, disgrace, wounds, stabs (operations nowadays), exile, imprisonment, sickness, violent fevers, quarrels, violent lust, military preferment.”  “The rising Pleiades are indicative of those who are homosexual like to be flattered, and (with a poorly positioned Mercury) impudent in speech.”  “(Helical rising star.) ” To have strong spiritual and visionary skills that weave the very fabric of one’s life. They have artistic or intuitive vision, but recognising such vision has the shadow side of giving or receiving harsh judgement.” 
Mirfak 2º ~ (Heliacal rising star.) “The natural desire to engage in challenge, a person who triumphs by being aggressive. A person with physical vitality but who at times is reckless” 
Prima Hyadum 5º ~ “Rising or culminating with luminaries, makes their natives military captains, commanders, colonels of horse and emperors. Injuries to the face, wounds, stabs (may be operations nowadays). Blindness, bad eyes. Imprisonment.” 
Aldebaran 9º ~ “ If Rising, and in conjunction with the Moon, a good fellow, but if in conjunction with both the Lord of the Ascendant and the Moon it denotes a murderer.” 
The ascendant gives the purest expression of the decan’s energy since no planets will colour its expression. The ascendant is also the relationship axis, so the influences above will play out mostly in how the subject relates to others. With Gemini decan 1 dandy warriors and geek chic behaviour will be most notable in love relationships. It may be that this person plays the geek while they fall for quite physical, heroic types. Or it may be the other way round where the Gemini decan 1is the seducer, who drapes themselves over their partners computer and dramatically throws away their spectacles. Eyes seem to be an issue with the ascendant because this is also the physical body too. As you can see the traditional interpretations go town with ‘bad eyes’ and ‘facial injuries’, but you would need a few more indicators I think for that to be true in a person’s natal chart. I don’t see many glasses wearers in the celebrity list, nor any blind either. Maybe we have to read this symbolically and say that these folk might be quite blind to the faults in their partners? Or have more of vision of other dimensions.
We do have one actual physical example, however. Singer-songwriter Rufus Wainwright with Alcyone rising did actually go blind for a time during his time addicted to crystal meth. It certainly seems that having Gemini decan 1 rising does bring an eventful life of high highs and low lows. The position of Mercury as the chart ruler will give more indication of whether the subject is more heroic and militant (Perseus.), artistic and lustful (Pleiades.) or spiritual warrior on a quest to rid the world of evil (Aldebaran.). This decan has a wide variety of expressions due to the many stars here, but what seems to link them all is having a persuasive charisma, even if some of them are quite arrogant with it. With relationships, it looks like there is either utter devotion to one person or great promiscuity with many. Sometimes there is both together in one life when one starts off quite free and lusty with their affections in the Alcyone fashion, but then settles down and marries for life. Another possibility is one that marries very young, then divorces and behaves like a rampant teenager in their 50’s.

A tendency to be harsh in the judgement of other, and this a need to balance one’s instincts with compassion.” 
Mirfak 2º ~ “To have vitality and enthusiasm. The sport person or athlete, or to have a great deal of energy for one’s daily life.”

The Sun here has great creativity and wants to try everything and everyone.. They wear many faces and can make great impersonators. The problem these folk may have is spreading themselves far too thin and being all things to everyone. They really need to focus on one thing at a time instead of being the perpetual juggler. Saying all that, if these folk do manage to find an occupation where they are in their Mercurial element then they can do really well. Yes Sun Gemini 1 certainly can multi-task, and they might need to if they go on to have a large family. Having many children and/or twins is possible if other factors in the chart support this. These young at heart folk can make great primary school teachers. They can give a fun, all-round education not spending too much time on any one topic. Their boredom threshold is such that Sun Gemini 1 may be not so good at being a master of one subject however.
The main thing about the Sun here is their wit and enthusiasm which is just so infectious. They also have a real childlike quality about them and retain a youthful vigour until old age. Sun Gemini 1’s main talent is their persistent curiosity that never leaves them. They are constantly experimenting and can come up with great innovations if they stay on a project long enough. Sun Gemini 1 are very often attracted to the theatre where they can dress up and play different characters to their hearts content.
