One: Physical Man
20th to June 1st
clockwise upon the Ordinary Wheel the sign of Gemini is entered
from right to left via Mercury in the first decan, Venus in the
second and Saturn in the third. The Mercurial physical type is quite
well known and easily recognizable because Mercury both rules the
sign and the physical decan of Gemini.
the pure unmodified type the figure is slender, tall, decidedly
lanky and straight with unusually long extremities of the body—arms,
hands, fingers, toes and feet. Characteristically we find a boyishness,
youthfulness or adolescent appearance, with a wonderful spontaneity
and charming childlike countenance surviving even into old age.
marked trait lies in the small pronounced bird-like features of
the face. A characteristic alertness and restless activity enlivens
the eyes and indeed the movement of the whole body. Most distinctively
the eyes, although sharp and small, are rather like two high-beams
of light which restlessly dart or pivot from one object or person
to the next. Certainly the eyes of these youthful souls are not
deep-set for the character of the sign is initially light, evasive,
fun loving, superficial, coy and even somewhat meaningless.
classic Mercurial forehead is high and deep, while the nose is straight,
long and generally aquiline. The mouth is typically somewhat trumpet-like,
small with thin lips but can also be long and narrow; while the
chin is narrow, decisive and pointed. As Gemini rules the hands
and arms, they characteristically accompany their conversation with
more masculine types of both sexes are often not small or slim but
quite tall, displaying large powerful physical constitutions, more
wiry, solid, compact and muscular with strong and definite features
such as a prominent nose, high cheek bones and decisive chin. The
feminine or artistic types, shall we say, of both sexes, are often
quite dainty, lightly built, possessing a fine poise and delicate
effete carriage. This feminine type suggests more the image of a
dove or a songbird, while the totem of the hawk perhaps best portrays
the solid, active masculine type.
advanced hawk type—male or female—displays excellent
athletic talents and possesses the best possible hand-to-eye coordination,
making them excellent in all manner of racquet sports, football,
gymnastics, track and field, skiing, soccer or baseball. Acute senses,
great adroitness, agility and dexterity are eventually exhibited
in the advanced physical type. The gifted and sure use of the eyes,
arms and the hands are the natural forté of so many gifted athletes,
artists, surgeons, dentists, healers and other health care professionals
born under this sign. The steadiness in the hands is a definite
sign of advanced development and the high evolution of the acumen
of the soul upon the physical plane.
the extreme recessive physical specimen the body is small, uncoordinated,
thin, excessively fragile and weak. Mercury's rule of the physical
decan accounts for the highly unstable, confused and imbalanced
nature of the physically polarized Gemini.
inclines its subjects to the graces and faults of the young and
immature. Though sensitivity, fluid versatility and quick reaction
are characteristic of souls born under Mercury, the primitive physical
types are nevertheless chiefly known for their total lack of self-control.
In fact they are unreliable and unstable, vacillating, inconsistent,
combative, unintelligently accommodating and compromising.
of their preoccupation with and embroilment in the perpetual troubles
of their tiny personal drama, they cannot see beyond the immediate
battleground. Inherent urges for spontaneous expression are so great
that they give vent to unbridled self-expression at any cost without
intelligent regard for normal discipline or social restraint.
the sign of the Twins, is dual-natured and contradictory. On the
one hand it produces the virtue of versatility, and on the other
the vices of two-facedness and a bird-like flightiness. Constantly
struggling and fighting within themselves, their lives are consumed
by contrary impulses, constant conflict, stress, unexpected reversals
and all manner of personal inconsistencies and instabilities.
matter how positive their experiences, a counterpoint or contrary
impulse always seems to be inevitably evoked. Such types possess
an unconscious sense of latent duality and are preoccupied with
their own special distinctiveness and the pain and inharmony they
experience in relation to others, the physical environment, material
circumstance, family members and other people in general. Their
microscopic outlook is entirely circumscribed within a very small
circle of personal interests and their own immediate family.
the early stage without doubt, the Mercury rulership mandates an
inborn lack of discrimination, the tendency to physical diffuseness,
lack of continuity and unpredictability. Displaying an artless and
open satisfaction over their personal achievements and victories,
the lower aspect of the Mercurial stimulation accounts for their
failure to achieve right relationship with others. Initially finding
it impossible to be in any way or sense of the term moderate, extreme
responses are shown which serve only to render them torn, divided
and devitalized. Attention is given to likes and dislikes and whether
or not it is possible to set up a personal rapport.
known for confused hostility, combativeness and the unintelligent
silence which precedes thoughtful speech, they have a definite lack
of good sense or harmony. Indeed they seem to have a special talent
for exacerbating interpersonal and environing tensions with dissonance,
discord, inharmony and acrimony. A totally selfish and self-serving
attitude is a deterrent to right cooperation or agreeability. Of
course they blatantly deny this and refuse to take any responsibility
whatsoever. This total denial is, in fact, their great forté and
benchmark characteristic. In their minds they like to think that
they are fair, do not pick or choose favorites, and treat all with
justifiable contempt or respect deservingly. In their personal lives
they are noted for their inability to tolerate the discomfort of
dissonance and so are incapable of responding to the genuine needs,
concerns or valid point of view of others, to which they therefore
not especially advanced they characteristically take from anyone
in any difficult situation anything that furthers their self-righteous
claims of injustice, inequality, unfairness in order to advance
their own egotism and to bolster in themselves a perhaps spurious
sense of happiness, well-being and comfort. Though unconcerned with
other people's grief, no other sign type so loudly laments or proclaims
their own sickness, sorrow, suffering or tragic loss.
led by constant points of crisis and always selfishly identifying
themselves with their own small part in it, they are completely
unconcerned with other points of view. Unconsciously early on, they
are swayed by mass ideas and molded unthinkingly by tradition and
public opinion and certainly do not pay attention to conditions
in the physical environment. Their lives are carried forward by
the general tide of events, environing circumstances, racial and
national karma. Certainly this type is not known for self-sacrifice,
self-control, honorable intention, right judgment, or for the performance
of duty that is in any way difficult or uncongenial.
connection with the duality of Geminian conflict, at the first rung
of the ladder bear in mind that this conflict is totally unconscious
and under the direction and control of the undeveloped and totally
selfish mind of the personality. Even when they can evidence at
rare moments some small semblance of acceptance of responsibility
for failings, their excuse is that they have done the best that
they are capable of and with good intention, so you really cannot
hold them at fault or blame them. Yet they are the first to criticize,
blame, condemn and throw stones.
awareness of the struggling, almost blind, separative, isolated
Geminian personality seems to be most inimical to the purpose of
the imprisoned soul which is focused within and identified with
the physical aspect of the personality. Nevertheless in reality
it is through constant activity, ceaseless movement and ever changing
conditions that the versatile, mutable Gemini subject eventually
learns to govern the tendency to fluidity, to lost motion and to
Geminian does possess a sense of artistic perception, though as
yet vague and undeveloped. They have many attractive personality
attributes, expression of which comes naturally to them: They are
affectionate, courteous, kind, generous, and thoughtful towards
the poor and suffering—provided that the expression of these
attributes does not interfere too greatly with their own life, or
entail any sacrifice or loss of personal comfort.
their better moments they may strive to be honest and straightforward,
although self-interest is almost always the victor. Since in the
early Mercurial stage Gemini subjects lack the quality of conscientiousness,
they are apt to fight a losing battle in any attempts they make
to act with moral intent. Lower psychic perception, not reason,
guides the way. Principles and morals have yet to be developed which
would prevent perverted or improper actions and devious ways and
quickly learn to use their outward attractiveness to gain their
own ends, and when striving for these they will use any weapon in
their armory—unscrupulous lying and cunning evasiveness; escaping
blame by scapegoating others all the while displaying such charm
and bonhomie. If events turn against them they sulk like children.
Also like children they demand time, energy, money, attention, admiration,
throwing tantrums if they do not get what they want.
reflect every change in their surroundings like chameleons, and
can become pessimistic, sullen, peevish and materialistically self-centered
if circumstances force them to struggle in any way. If the conditions
of life become really adverse, their strength of will deserts them
entirely. They can become uncertain of themselves, either withdrawn
or nervously excitable worriers, sullenly discontented, difficult
and irritable, with the little self looming ever larger in their
struggles. On the other hand they can be very versatile and adaptable,
manipulating the world around them by means of their inherent ingenuity
after many lifetimes of experience round the Wheel, right relationship
will be achieved. Further, at the close of the cycle many lifetimes
later, the subjugation of the multiplicity of the internecine forces
of the three-fold lower nature will have produced a new alignment
of the bodies of the personality. In hindsight it is then evident
that the fluidic versatility and naturally agile characteristics
of the Mercurial physical constitution have fittingly served to
awaken the facile activity of the rudimentary mind.
must recognize that here it is not the task of the soul to detach
itself from matter, but it is the potency of physical satisfaction
and the form life which stimulates evolution. The urge to incarnate
is motivated by the pull of material forms towards which the soul
is attracted. By way of discovering and using the mind, the Twin
must eventually find his or her way out of blind immersion in matter.
At the first stage however, the incarnated soul cannot objectively
view the world of thought and separate the false from the true.
repeated lifetimes, the attraction of matter will begin to wane
and the soul will learn to intelligently detach itself. Then at
the evolved point, facility to bring harmony and peace through conflict
and the capacity to consciously evolve psychologically through the
process of constant struggle and crisis will be demonstrated. A
positive fighting spirit is exhibited that overcomes all limiting
frustrations and inhibitions to growth.
decan provides the soul with a pliable instrument adept at harmonizing
conflicts and resolving dissonances. The purpose here is for the
soul to bring about those physical adjustments which will lead to
harmonious interaction and the resolution of any and all forms of
evolutionary goal of the personality is to find a steadfast center
within itself so that it does not fluctuate with ambivalence, confusion
or uncertainty between contrasting states or polarities. It should
be appreciated that the process of fluidic Mercurial interplay serves
to lead the Geminian personality to one-pointed development, focus,
determination and achievement.
the Mercurial type will become truly self-directing, self-thinking,
highly dramatic, non-imitative, trusting, spontaneous, full of imagination
and a love of improvisation. A sensitive and fluidic response to
circumstances and people will then naturally arise, as will a keen,
vibrant, colorful faculty for expression and creativity. A distinctive
and unique personal identity emerges which has the potential capacity
to harmoniously relate to people from all walks of life and bring
delight, entertainment, amusement, drama and beauty into their lives.
Two: Emotional Man
1st to 11th
reveals the desire and natural urge for union and the merging of
the pairs of opposites. At the beginning of the second step, the
outward pull of mass consciousness and the call of the social life
become dominant. Not only shallow and incompetent in personal love-making
but in all manner of relations, the early stage of emotional growth
is so bewildering, dismaying and perplexing it is easy to understand
why the average Geminian ever attempts to avoid complicated relations.
craving for variety and impatience of repetition or sameness is
their natural tendency. Deplorably lacking in persistence and tenacity,
they carry half-formed fanatical views. As yet heedless, unintelligent,
inchoate and easily imposed upon, the young Twin is engulfed by
dreams of glamour and illusion which are self-evoked and self-related.
These misguided social enthusiasts and dilettantes are prone to
travesty of every type, lack common sense, continually love to dwell
on their own personal achievements and ceaselessly iterate the first
love the Twin is fickle, not intentionally so but because of the
basic inconstancy of their emotional nature, which has an amoral
aspect to it. One part of them becomes deeply involved emotionally,
but there is also a part that cannot abide any form of sentimentality
or romanticism and takes an attitude of humorous derision towards
all protagonists including themselves, while analyzing the whole
situation from an intellectual viewpoint.
subjects under Venus in the emotional decan seemingly take nothing
seriously and never enter into anything with depth or gravity. Truly,
they are superficial lightweights in the surest sense of the term.
Therefore in love, despite their temporary depth of feeling, the
intensity of involvement lasts only a short while. At first they
are light-hearted, cool, flirtatious, unimaginative and incomprehending
of the pain they inflict upon others. They thrive on gossip, enjoy
intrigue and the excitement of the chase, but once the prey is caught
they lose interest and look around for the next creature to pursue.
impelling urge of the Geminian is the satisfaction of unrealized
desires; although sometimes this path leads to dismay and even disgust.
Twins will always thoroughly favor themselves by playfully participating
in the fulfilment of their desires, fantasies or imaginative life.
Vanity and egotism are problems here because Twins always imagine
that they are not loved, understood or appreciated, and so become
at times, excessively mean and exacting to those around them.
inability to refrain from all manner of personal desire and sexual
experience leads to an unmitigated demonstration of selfish personality
forces, self-aggrandizement, self-gratification and self-enforcement.
stimulates the creation of a powerful wish-life. As desire for sexual
gratification is keen, so sexual imagination and the urge for satisfaction
are exceedingly potent. Twins begin the process of developing definite
likes and dislikes and will orient themselves toward seeking out
someone to love. Sometimes they seek out those towards whom they
bear ill will and create opportunities to inflict harm upon those
they hate or resent. Known for ill-judged acts and constant argument,
they are not shy of conflict and warfare. They have a knack for
provoking frequent clashes of opinion with others. In effect they
are self-centered egotists.
naturally disinclined towards physical violence or attack, they
nonetheless do desire to considerably influence those around them.
In the main they achieve this through verbal argument. Often they
are caustic in their criticism of others. Basically the Twin in
the emotional decan is a coward whose first and foremost concern
is the safety of his own 'skin'. In all cases they prefer that someone
else do their fighting for them. Otherwise they attempt to passively
adapt to existing material circumstances. Initially the Geminian
is deplorably weak emotionally and lacks the strength to resist
outside pressure, so rather than pushing aside obstacles or problems
they sidestep them in order to avoid physical danger, harm or conflict.
Geminian is inclined to inflict his or her moods, depressions and
emotional reactions in a harmful way upon others. Daily conduct,
words and thoughts are destructive and negative as violent feelings,
fervors and misplaced or misdirected enthusiasm are directed outwards.
Not interested in self-discipline, they create inharmonious conditions
and are unable to eliminate wrong states of consciousness. In the
emotional decan the Twin has a natural forté for destabilizing people
and circumstances. Known for their narrow horizons or total lack
of vision, they certainly do not demonstrate poise or skill in action.
antagonistic personal feelings and desires or negative attitudes
are encountered, the Twin rebels and strikes out with an astonishing
amount of cold-blooded selfishness and cruelty, especially against
their own children, brothers, sisters, family, friends or associates.
When their wishes, desires or suggestions are not followed, children
of the sign are notorious for the intensity of their emotional outbursts.
Tears, tantrums, or any other ploy may be used. When threatened
they will call on a special bigger friend or gang to ensure easy
and the general tendency to counter any criticism are very strong
indeed, for they are based upon an unconscious need for perfect
expression. Sympathetic appreciation for their feelings is welcome,
but it is impossible for them to put themselves in the place of
others and they refuse to take a back seat. If inferiorly treated
in any manner in some relationship, they feel very used and angry
and express their anger, not being inclined to suffer in silence.
When friends or neighbors find it impossible to understand or sympathise
with the extent of their suffering, a misery of martyrdom is characteristically
displayed with tremendous emotional intensity.
can be very dull, monotonous, quarrelsome idle prattlers, boasters,
liars, cheats and scandal mongers. The hallmark traits of the astral
Twin are jealousy, obsessiveness, lack of realism and profound lack
of awareness. They can be stupid, tactless and intolerant. They
can exhibit a real meanness and display a demanding temperament,
uncongenial feelings, doubts and difficulties which prevent the
establishment of peace, comfort, harmony or tranquility.
are certainly not known for affection, gratitude or loyalty. They
are also slow to discharge debts, as the true value of old associations
remains unappreciated and unacknowledged. Bad listeners, they are
deaf to sensible advice, resent the suggestions of others and are
prone to rapid and sudden changes of thought, feeling and action.
Usually they are strikingly deficient in memory. Lacking in self-criticism,
the emotionally undeveloped Twin is impatient, nervous, restless,
extreme, temperamental, distracted, trouble-making, forgetful, stressed,
demanding, anxious, chaotic, undependable, preoccupied, insensitive,
overzealous, inconsistent, erratic, troubled, manipulative, self-satisfied,
indecisive, intolerably indulgent, unapproachable, provocative and
less serious situations they make witty, entertaining companions
and pleasant acquaintances rather than friends. On the active or
positive side the Geminian emotional disposition is energetic, exciting,
expressive, attractive, sensuous, convincing, and when mature can
be impressively incisive. The advanced temperament is creative,
committed, quick, expansive, adaptable, artistic, entertaining,
charming, imaginative, adventuresome, ambitious, clever, shrewd,
persuasive, lively, influential, rousing and charismatic. Twins
possess a constant craving for joy, pleasure and variety and so
seek novelty, entertainment, romance and excitement.
desire to spend and to acquire is always in excess of their means.
Even when wealthy or relatively comfortable this type is hampered
by some self-endowed sense of being underprivileged and in permanent
poverty. When money is owed to them they appear very business-like
and demand payment immediately. Their occasional or infrequent outbreaks
of lavish generosity are balanced by—and used as a justification
for—subsequent meanness and the assertion of selfish demands.
astral imagination should not be suppressed in the Geminian and
everything should be done to encourage composure through proper
training; but drudgery or routine is not for the Twin. Masquerade,
the love of pretending, acting, modeling, dating and dancing can
be positively encouraged along constructive creative lines. Dreams
and the imagination indicate the character trends and real experience
projected into the astral. Unexpressed longings must be brought
to the surface while unrealized desires should seek and find expression.
love best to be found at the center of joyous activity and merry
play, and like everything to proceed peacefully, happily and brightly
until they strike the keynote of change within themselves much to
the consternation and discomfort of others.
the final analysis, the inherent urge to find contentment in the
environment and immediate circumstances promotes an appreciation
of and satisfaction with the bounty that life freely supplies. The
path of emotional development stretches between the extremes of
psychical anguish and joy.
the gift of the Geminian consciousness is its ability to best stimulate,
refresh and revive the dejected and sinking spirits of their fellows
to fresh incentive and new efforts. The steadfast upholding of sound
dogma concerning life and religion is then demonstrated, along with
the qualities of faith, duty and trust.
source of happiness and refreshment to those who live, work and
associate with them, they teach others how to share and enjoy life
with its infinite variety and gifts of diverse richness. Holding
strong beliefs and convictions, they enter into occupations and
pursuits wholeheartedly, seeking sympathetic companionship, appreciation,
response and support.
Three: Mental Man
11th to 20th
rule of the mental decan of Gemini provides the right kind of direction
required to develop the embryonic mental apparatus. At the early
stage, without Saturn, the unevolved man would only occupy himself
with useless and deleterious pursuits. In their intellectual endeavors,
as in other departments of their lives, unevolved Geminians simply
appear as dilettantes, losing themselves in too many thoughts that
they attempt to follow until they strike difficulty.
the third step, the Twin characteristically appears incapable of
true comprehension of serious matters. Uplifting work, constructive
training and moral education are required at this point in the career
of the soul. With the steadying hand of Saturn the Geminian begins
a tutorship to prepare a firm base of knowledge. Eventually a real
liking for intellectual pursuit is acquired, although in the early
stages the mental type has little or no inborn sense of discrimination,
is easily led astray, and is incapable of self-defense which must
painfully be learned.
fosters the development of personal duty and responsibility, initiating
this process by the growth, training and enforced development of
the concrete mind along rational and linear lines. Over time the
analytic powers of thought become increasingly strong while the
mind becomes well structured, adaptive and efficiently organized
along strictly pragmatic lines of thought.
Saturn-controlled mind loves to win arguments, perhaps naively believing
that winning an argument settles everything. Other people are very
apt to be surprised by the heartlessness and formality of the mental
productions of the Geminian, and instinctively resent the cold and
rigid methods that accompany their presentations, even when they
agree with the conclusions. The depths and strengths of the arguments
opposed against their individual views are not appreciated or understood.
Often then, undue confidence in the efficacy of personal viewpoint
leads into great error.
mind under Saturn is cold, rigid, formalized and troubled. Blind
to the truth behind the apparent facts of any given situation, they
fail in their treatment of those below them in status because they
are so unsympathetic and unfriendly. In fact they regard staff relations
as of a purely business character and actually care little for those
and formalities rigidly limit the personalized mind, so true to
the stereotypes of both Saturn and Gemini, they seem quite incapable
of giving or sharing themselves in a relationship. The semi-educated
Twin lacks an understanding of love, and the passion of love is
merely viewed as animal passion and therefore somewhat contemptible,
rather ridiculous or at best a nuisance. To this kind of person
the attitudes of others appear absurd, objectionable and even rather
intellectual analysis, no matter how brilliant or well thought out,
inevitably leads to solecism, blunders, irreconcilable contradictions,
cleavages and unhappiness. The mind is not yet sufficiently developed
to be the least bit intuitive, but it does seek freedom of thought
the materialistic aspect of Saturn the mental type cannot yet comprehend
higher unity, non-duality or the process of synthetic thought. Prejudice
dependent upon a biased scholastic training is the general rule.
Its natural development is demonstrated along the lines of rational
and logical thought, circumscribed by the form side of life. Here
the mind can be so intense and busy paradoxically, that it never
stops to think. Saturn does however, eventually succeed in forcing
the mind to slow down, focus and stabilize. But concentration, though
intense for a while, does not last.
point of view or the basic assertion is a purely materialistic and
scientific one which recognizes only that which is definitely proven,
or that which can be proven by the acceptance of a logical hypothesis.
Saturn grants the power to combine, to perceive the relations between
many different persons, things or objects and to clarify and develop,
however it does not originate and create. The Geminian here is not
an original thinker but does possess a well-studied, disciplined
and trained conventional mind.
all fairness however, we must remark that the Geminian mind is capable
of matchless lucidity, great power of concentration, and an incomparable
power of analysis and resolution. This stands in sharp contrast
to the early stages of mental development wherein the mind does
little more than provide an example of cleverness and works to hide
or conceal its inconsistencies, flaws and fallacies. True comprehension
of serious matters is the result of a mind properly trained and
disciplined under Saturn.
under Saturn increased mental agility and energy create a voracious
appetite for knowledge at a young age, the labor and effort of learning
is found to be distasteful. The Twin easily grasps almost everything
requiring intelligence and mental dexterity, and is often able to
marry this with manual skills. Their concrete intellect is strongly
analytical and sometimes gives them so great an ability to see both
sides of a question that they vacillate and find it hard to make
decisions. If faced with difficulties they have little persistence
and determination to worry at a problem until they find a solution—they
will rather find out the answers from other people.
a general rule, this mental temperament or disposition remains dissatisfied.
In speaking, expression is exceedingly clear, logical and rational.
Although there may also be real eloquence, there is still the natural
Saturnian tendency to be pedantic, repetitive and doctrinaire. Arguments
are often won not on their true merit but simply due to the superior
ability of the mind to rationalize. This can be excellent in accounting
or legal affairs.
Geminian mind rejoices in its own cleverness. Always operating within
a known set of parameters, the unevolved mental type is limited
by the safeguards of self-devised truth. The individual capacity
for logical mental process is enjoyed in and of itself, quite devoid
of moral or ethical considerations. At the third step, Saturn can
certainly produce a truly wicked mind which works in improper ways.
What we see exhibited in the undeveloped type is a mind which is
unscrupulous, shallow, superficial, and one which often degenerates
into scheming and trickery.
positive qualities of the evolved Geminian mind are its capacity
for abstract reasoning and its ability to theorize and speculate.
Advanced thinkers possess an understanding of relativity, demonstrating
a wide view on all abstract questions. They have a keen, intuitive,
brilliant intelligence and love cerebral challenges. They have a
diligent capacity for rigorous analysis and reasoning, great mental
fertility, creativity and agility.
the Geminian acquires a fineness of perception and is capable of
observing the intimate details and minute differences of any type
of artistic work, musical composition or other creative expression.
They are skillful in communication, have facility with language,
the power to vocalise and the ability to render thought into word,
along with the power to manipulate. They seem to be incessantly
mentally active with complex involved thought processes and are
certainly resourceful, highly analytical, discriminative, strategic,
critical, qualifying, inductive, empirical, planning and calculating.
They are intricate weavers of thought. Many teachers, scientists,
media personalities, journalists and writers come under the Saturnian
this influence the incarnated soul will eventually produce the expression
of an enduring, if not an endearing, mind. The Geminian learns to
acquire a mental grip and to make decisions without allowing the
attention to wander. Restlessness and the tendency to boredom are
overcome through definite forms of mental focus and well-directed,
useful and constructive work. This would seem to be contrary to
the apparent basic nature of the sign, but is accounted for by Saturn's
Geminians possess a fluid and analytical understanding of men, measures
and circumstances. The best type is high-minded, modest and enterprising,
and acts beyond reproach with dignity and respect. They are engaged
in the search for truth through pure intellect and are well suited
to determining the constant variation of conditions. Being particularly
aware of the relativity of truth, they express this awareness through
their ability to qualify according to situation or parameter.
the final stage upon the Ordinary Wheel, Saturn offers the needed
resistance and obstacles necessary to produce a basic and fundamental
revolution and reversal in the thinking of the dualistic Geminian
personality consciousness. This is the force which will produce
the changes needed for the evolution of the inner light of the soul,
prepare the way for the eventual resolution of duality into a fluid
synthesis and "the freedom of the two". (EA 348)
this juncture, it is time for the power of the Geminian personality
to begin to wane while that of the higher Self waxes and grows.
The subjective psychological process whereby the transmutation of
duality into unity occurs really commences, because only now is
it possible to initiate the process of personality and soul at-one-ment.
It is possible because the use of the concrete mind as the mediator
within the personality—conditioning and controlling the entire
personality life—is completely developed. An agile facility
for analyzing and distinguishing between the self and the not-self,
and the ability to recognize, pick or choose and emphasize the 'me
and you' is now being consciously worked upon. Unconscious struggle
under the direction of the personality life is over. Personality
integration and the successful control of the mortal self has been
other words the inner man is now conscious of himself and of his
relation to the physical plane environment. Now is the time for
the establishment of right relation between the soul and the brain,
and between the mortal self and the immortal self. When consummated,
the fluid versatile changeable personality will become truly self-directed,
governing all tendencies to lost motion and misdirected change.
Fluidity of relationship and preservation of the magnetic interplay
hold hid the key to one-pointed spiritual aspiration, orientation
During the Reverse
Wheel cycle beginning on the next rung of the ladder, the fourth,
the evolved Geminian subject will carry this process of higher relationship
forward with rapidity, leading ultimately to complete soul control.
Thus the developing purpose of the soul unfolds, ranging all the
way from purely animal desire, through selfish human ambition, to
the struggle of the aspiring disciple seeking liberation.
The stage has been
set for the period wherein the intellect is to be illumined by the
light of the soul. Now the conscious recognition of the duality
of soul and its form commences the process of soul interplay.
