Gemini Decan 1 ~ General Meaning

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.8 of SwordsThe “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!…

The tarot card associated with Gemini Decan 1 is the eight 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 must be 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…

Alcyone 0º ~ “Throat ailments, chronic catarrh, blindness, bad eyes, injuries to the face, sickness, disgrace, evil disposition, murderer or murdered, imprisonment, death by pestilence, blows, stabs, shooting, beheading or shipwreck.” [3] “ The ruthless visionary, a passionate but potentially arrogant person. A tendency to be harsh in the judgement of other, and this a need to balance one’s instincts with compassion.” [7]
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.” [6]
Prima Hyadum 5º ~ “Evil disposition, disturbed mind, failure in study, muddled thinking, misfortune, murderer or murdered, death by blows, stabs, shooting, beheading or shipwreck.” [8]
Aldebaran 9º ~ “Great energy and perseverance, high material honors but danger of losing them, danger from quarrels and the law, honor and riches ending in disgrace and ruin, liable to disease, fevers and a violent death.” [10]

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.

  1. Thank you from a Gemini born May 31st with Sun at 10 degrees. Just hope I don’t die a violent death! Maybe my Jupiter at 12 degrees, also conjunct Aldebaran will protect me, or just living with integrity. Makes so much sense because I suspect I’m paying off a lot of karma, so there’s really no room to slip up this lifetime.

  2. Gemini confuse the listener, they complain bitterly while cleaning with gusto, direct anger towards a missing family member then great them w/ love…. words oppose feelings is an inner struggle, duplicity is what we see, will they ever know right from wrong? part of the charm is innocence. Wait and let Libra sort it out.
    Libra knows… only infrequently rationalize crookedness, more commonly make up stricter laws for themselves or become obsessed with crime, holding on like a pit bull, till justice is served, shedding very few tears.
    Aquarius will try and make wrong right and vice-versa, detesting tough judgments, showing pity for the dispossessed, only time tells the error of their ways, (beyond human intervention) and then it’s with simple circumspection as they (almost never) see them selves as victims. Aquarius builds themselves, are self-made and because of positive attitude acquire entourage

  3. marina – hard to know where to place this comment – it’s sort of a timing question – involves both eclipses, the fact of end taurus/start gemini, and just the general outlay of this current week (13-19 may)

    – one of those “finding your soulmate isn’t all good” scenarios – we’ve had a lot of bad circumstance that past year, really discoloring our reunion after 30+ years, and both recovering from assted saturn stuff – his 27 libra sun, my 27 aries sun; his 1.0 gemini ascendant, my 0.22 leo ascendant – we’ve each been taken a lot of punches in the 3-d world.

    now that things are slowing down a little in 3-d, i have a feeling i’m being associated with the hell that last year was (especially from last may’s eclipse)

    i’d like to have a talk and say – don’t walk away from what we haven’t started, but let’s do rest it for a bit, with no anger toward each other.

    so my question – is timing best now (before full moon, and within gemini 1st decan), post full moon, or waiting until new moon in june? i feel as if i don’t want bad communications to get solidifed during this taurus new moon eclipse cycle, but i don’t want it to blow up – maybe for good – by getting closer to uranus pluto, and the new moon; but i don’t wanna risk bad habits being cast in concrete by waiting til gemini new moon.

    can you find a question in there, and do you have an opinion on the timing part, to best cleanse our pallettes? and – just for some back up on – i am still recovering from assorted eclipses, saturn, and getting poked a bit by pluto – uranus….i came home last night to find someone had removed my fence and stolen my car – after blinking a few times – my reaction was to laugh – not ironically, just more cause – oh, yeah, cosmos – that somehow makes sense…thanks for all your beautiful insights!

  4. Marina,

    Helpful, if you could bring the decans into the menú! There are some already and for us some, they are like a tool to meet the generals of ourselves and people.



    • I’m on my way to doing that. I like them up the top too because I reference them to my clients often. At the moment the links are still to Jamie’s horoscopes. I’m thinking of doing weekly horoscopes too which I might add to the decans up top which would make them more current. I’ll have to see though, because promising weekly horoscopes is a big commitment.
