Gemini Altar (Altar of the twins)

Ostia, Italy

0.84 x 0.84 m ,  1.10 m high

First day of October, 124 CE


A container for offerings or a statue was fastened on top with lead (the altar is explicitly called “altar” in an inscription, but it may have been re-used as a statue-base). The four corners are decorated with ram’s heads and wreaths. The front has a depiction of Mars, Venus (with goose and Amor), and Hymenaeus (the god of marriage). On the back we see Romulus and Remus, suckled by the she-wolf. They are found by two shepherds, Faustulus and Faustinus. This story is situated near the Palatine (the Lupercal), and the personification of the hill can be seen in the upper left part. In the lower right part is the personification of the Tiber. Jupiter’s eagle is present as well. On the sides of the altar are amorini, hauling the weapons and chariot of Mars. The amorini are moving towards the front side of the altar.

One Gemini twin is a Pisces

Gemini are the drops in the ocean. Pisces are the entire ocean in a single drop, Gemini is the colours in the artists crate, Pisces is the whole illustration, in Esoteric astrology Pisces and Gemini are the closest signs to the divine. Pisces is the accumulation of all, and Gemini is the etheric body with the emerging recognition of duality. What we see with pisces is a more  fluid shift of sub personalities, like a water crystal that is liquid, and with Gemini the more observable changeability. Pisces and Gemini both emanate the 2nd ray of love and wisdom. The close nature of the Pisces and Gemini glyphs give a good indication of the sacred kinship this pair share, Gemini illustrates two straight lines, and Pisces, the two curved lines 

“Gemini is, therefore, one of the most important of the twelve signs and its influence lies behind everyone of them - a fact but little realized as yet by astrologers. This will be more fully understood when the triangle of Gemini and two opposing signs is studied. Because the Ray of Love-Wisdom, the second ray, pours through Gemini it becomes apparent how true is the occult teaching that love underlies the entire universe. Christ is indeed all things to all people and is the ultimate Gemini:

“I am made all things to all men, that I might by all means save some.”  

Leading up to this statement Christ says: “For though I be free from all men, yet have I made myself servant unto all, that I might gain the more. And unto the Jews I became as a Jew, that I might gain the Jews; to them that are under the law, as under the law, that I might gain them that are under the law; To them that are without law … as without law, that I might gain them that are without law. To the weak became I as weak, that I might gain the weak.” (1 Cor. 9:17)


“Esoterically, the reason that Venus is exalted in Pisces is connected with the relation of Pisces to the sign Gemini, of which Venus is the esoteric ruler, and also in relation to the fact that Venus is the Earth’s alter ego and is closely related to the human kingdom. This subject is too vast and complicated to be elaborated here, but the point should be remembered. The Fishes in Pisces are bound together, as [130] we have seen, and this is a symbol of the captivity of the soul in form, prior to the experience upon the Fixed Cross. The Twins in Gemini are symbols of the same basic duality, but the experience of the many changing incarnations has done its work, and the Band (uniting the two fishes) is in process of dissolution, for part of the work of Pluto is to “cut the thread which binds the two opposing lives together.”

Gemini IC

“I wanted to have a place that I could create everything that I thought I never had as a child.”
- Michael Jackson (Gemini IC/Sagittarius MC)

Growing up as a Gemini IC is by no means what you would consider stable. The home environment was very much active, to say the least. Gemini ICs could have grown up in either a dynamic environment with an abundance of strange, unexpected events or in a chaotic and abusive environment where one family figure could’ve held all the power against them. 

You, Gemini IC, isolated yourself every now and then and used any form of creativity to express yourself and let your imagination run wild.

Gemini ICs are insanely creative and curious; is an understatement. They are knowledgeable, whether they want to admit it or not. Gemini ICs, on their own time, would isolate themselves and create. This includes written stories, drawing many pictures, dancing, etc… 

You chose to express yourself creatively, often times through the Arts, because words have failed you.

In many cases, Gemini ICs were overachievers in school. But was it ever enough to impress the parents of the Gemini IC? It seemed like the parent was too busy occupied in other important matters that they simply did not have time for them. Gemini ICs grew up with tough love and lacked understanding and affection from their parents.

Talent brewed underneath the surface and the mind goes a mile a minute with you. And that’s what you do; expand and venture out. No matter how much you make, you will always give back and no matter how far you go, you’ll always come home.

And then, Gemini IC, is when you shoot up to your Sagittarius Midheaven.

Gemini and Pisces

Alice A. Bailey

Mars in Gemini

The energy in this Mars sign is one word: scattered. Mars in Gemini has multiple projects going on at once and whether they follow through with it is ultimately up to them. Mars in Gemini needs to have excitement and versatility in their life, but to get this, a Mars in Gemini can purposely ruffle up a few feathers for their enjoyment. These people can be drama starters and may often be involved in drama. They find it rather entertaining if it is put on to you. Mars in Gemini is fun and you can really find them wherever the party is at. They are upbeat, humorous and restless due to this abundance of energy. However, when the fun dies out and they’re angry, words are their ultimate weapon. A Mars in Gemini has no filter and are capable of spewing a tornado of words and insults right towards you and everyone in the room. Most of the time, their arguments can be invalid and irrelevant and this is because they are just yelling out whatever is going on in their mind. An angry Mars in Gemini is just going to shout without a direct aim, hoping to hurt you in some way.

Mars in Gemini definitely has a way with words and can have a playful, almost promiscuous sexual appetite. When they want sex, they’ll get it. They are the kind of Mars sign that will be down to try just about anything in the book. They can be up for having group sex in public for all they care! Curiosity is one way to describe their sex drive because really, they just want variety and something new and different each time. A Mars in Gemini doesn’t really care to emotionally connect with someone during sex, they might flee from that. Sex is supposed to be fun and full of laughs and dirty talk for them. Mars in Gemini alone as a placement, does not connect “love” with “sex” and they tend to disconnect from any emotional ties. They don’t need to be in a relationship to have sex with you, you guys don’t even have to be friends pretty much. Mars in Gemini is down for a one night stand. These people live in the moment and whatever happens, happens. That’s just how they are.

anonymous asked:

Why do you think libras, geminis, pisces are multifaceted?

Well, to be clear, all of the signs are multi-faceted in an archetypal way. However, in terms of the symbols, Libra, Gemini, Pisces, and Sagittarius also are multi-faceted. Libra has two sides of a scale, Gemini are represented by twins, Pisces are represented by two fishes, and Sagittarius is half man, half horse. These two sides can represent two different sides that are put into a single sign.

Gemini: One side represents knowledge and logic. The other side represents humor and youth. These two sides are both tied by the mind and communication.

Libra: One side represents love and romance. The other side represents justice and fairness. These two sides are both tied by the interactions with other people.

Sagittarius: One side represents knowledge, truth, and beliefs (human.) The other side represents strength, wildness, and adventure (horse.) These two sides are tied by passion.

Pisces: One side represents absolutely knowing everything and having the ability to empathize. The other side represents knowing absolutely nothing due to the grandness of the world. These two sides are tied by imagination.

does gemini have friends… or are they people there to amuse them and act as hard drives of information?
sometimes gemini finds it hard to see other people in personalized frameworks, they can be entities, floating bags of information for their consumption, and once this has been exhausted there can be no thrill, intrigue, or interest.
if you manage to constantly massage a gemini mind, keep it stimulated and active, they will envelope you into them like their long lost twin
geminis are loyal, but only to a select few. they can really be one of the most reticent, closed off signs.
younger geminis can be socially obsessive people who acquire a lot of friends in their attempt to ascertain what ‘identity’ or ‘personality’ is truly them. as the gemini matures, is given independence, and confronted with life events they become intimate with every part of themselves and self entertained in solitude. an integrated gemini is highly adaptable and dynamic with tremendous
competency and talent for every domain of life, there is nothing a gemini can’t do, think leonardo di caprio in ‘catch me if you can’
