Gemini: The 3rd Sign of the Zodiac
May 21st thru June 22nd
The Mind is Dual in Nature...
“Thoughts are a Person’s Most Potent Builders.“
One of the constants of Nature is the expression of DUALTY: positive/negative, up/down, inner/outer, above/below, light/dark, movement/stillness, masculine/feminine, happy/sad. From the interaction between these poles or opposites arise the various forms of the reality we know.
The Mind is dual in nature and operates in the space between its two poles: conscious/unconscious. The conscious, objective mind is designed to manage the operations of living in an objective, material world. It is not designed to act alone. It has an equal partner, the inner self. For most part the inner self is unconscious, occupying a “thought-built” dimension. It is filled with purpose and meaning and accesses information from the subjective, subliminal world but requires direction from the Conscious Mind to become useful. Tending to the material world, Consciousness loses the awareness that it is being influenced from this inner world in the form of emotions, intuitions, and spiritual inklings or connections. By consciously choosing to listen to these inner messages it is possible to access Mental Force and Vigor for insight, problem-solving and creative activity. Opportunity is created for a sense of wholeness and completion that is very satisfying for the Soul.
In astrology, Mercury, the ruler of Gemini is considered “neutral.” The key to tapping into Gemini’s power and touching the Divine, is to give and receive information with an unbiased attitude. With this neutral attitude of mind, the objective, rational mind engages with the subjective, intuitive mind permitting the opportunity to touch the polestar, known as Truth. The door to connection to Divine purpose and fulfillment opens in ways that are liberating and empowering...

In this classic series, Elbert Benjamine explains the astrological significance of the sign Gemini and its relationship to Arcanum XVII, The Star tarot card...
In Divination, Arcanum XVII may be read as Truth, Hope or Faith. Astrologically, the zodiacal sign Gemini. Color, the lighter shades of violet. Tone, high B. Occult science, cosmic alchemy. Human function, the sense of sight. Natural remedy, such herbs as madder, tansy, vervain, woodbine, yarrow, meadow-sweet, privet and dog-grass. Mineral, the talismanic gem beryl, and such stones as are striped
“...Applying our magical quaternary formula, Jod-He-Vau-He, the fiery triplicity represents the positive, masculine Jod, even as the heat rays of the sun fall upon the world. The watery triplicity is the negative, feminine first He, such as the moisture that quenches the thirst of the parched desert. The earthy triplicity is the point of union of masculine and feminine forces, the Vau, as water and heat meet in the earth to germinate whatever seeds lie in the ground. The airy triplicity is the product springing from the union, the final He, the harvest brought forth in due season...
...The Airy Triplicity embraces the signs Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius. People born under this triplicity tend to the nervous temperament. They are mentally alert, volatile, changeable, and socially inclined, desiring to live largely upon the mental plane. They are interested in education, literature, and art, are fond of conversation, and find pleasure in the exchange of ideas. In the sense of desiring refinement and intellectual culture, their characteristic quality is ASPIRATION...”

Why Astrology and the Tarot are so important to understanding Traditional Knowledge
The word Kabala signifies traditional knowledge. It thus refers to the Oral Law, as handed down from antiquity; and embraces the occult traditions of all lands and all peoples. Often it is used merely as referring to the esoteric doctrines of the Jews; but in its broader sense it includes also the secret doctrine of other races. This secret doctrine, common to many lands, was jealously guarded from the profane, and was never permitted to pass into writing except in such ambiguous terms as to baffle the uninitiated as to its true purport. In this sense the sacred books of the world, including the Avesta, the Vedas and the Bible are largely kabalistical; for they set forth traditions that are capable of an inner, or esoteric, interpretation. In fact, there are usually several interpretations possible, each more inner version revealing a deeper truth to those who have advanced along the path far enough to comprehend it.
And this seems the proper place to point out that the unwritten kabala, like the written kabala, is set forth in symbolical language, with purposeful blinds and subterfuges to confuse the uninitiated; so that of the few who undoubtedly exist at the present day who have received it, most remain in as much ignorance of its true interpretation as the majority of students do after studying the more accessible written kabala. This unwritten kabala has been transmitted only through certain secret schools. Those receiving it well merit what is given to them. They are left to their own devices in the matter of interpretation. And because the real keys to its interpretationóastrology and the tarotóhave been largely ignored, or distorted, they have floundered sadly in arriving at its meaning. Whether written or unwritten, the kabala is a philosophy correlated to esoteric astrology as exemplified by the tarot; and it can only be comprehended fully by those who perceive the true relation between astrological energies and their pictured tarot exemplification.
