As the Earth revolves around the Sun, so does the Moon revolve around the Earth. While our Sun sign tells us what “season” of the year we come from, our Moon sign and its relationship to the Sun tells us what “time of the month” we come from. The Moon’s phases pulse with the tides, like breathing in and out, like a flower opening and closing. While the Sun rules the day representing our outward expression and visible public lives, the Moon rules the night, representing our inner private lives, where we absorb and reflect our inherited circumstances and surroundings: our habits, instincts, emotions, patterns, comforts, our bodies, our origins, our mothers.
The Moon in Gemini is in a mutable air sign and takes on the qualities of its ruler Mercury. So people with the Moon in Gemini can be more emotionally adaptable, curious, restless, nervous, fidgety with nervous tics. They can be chatty, emotionally fluid, cool and quick. People with this placement tend to be people who process their inner thoughts and feelings through dialogues, diaries, doodles and puzzles and are often good mimics, impersonators or communicators. A potential result of this placement is the ability to compartmentalize and rationalize one’s emotions, although that’s not always a good thing depending on the situation. Sometimes this mercurial streak can be linked back to early experiences where the person was forced to adapt to rootlessness, shifting sands, changing circumstances with parents.
This is especially true if you were born at night and/or with Gemini or Cancer Rising. If you were born at night you will tend to exhibit more of the positive qualities of this placement, and potentially more than your Sun sign. If you were born during the day you will tend to exhibit more of the difficulties associated with this placement and identify more with your Sun sign.
