Gemini

On the Ordinary Wheel

May 20th to June 20th

And the word said:
Let instability do its work

Decanates

First decan            Mercury               May 20th to June 1st

Second decan       Venus                   June 1st to 11th

Third decan          Saturn                   June 11th to 20th

Please read the prefatory material before investigating your own Decanate Stage, as proper assignment is required. i.e., your birth date does not indicate the stage of development, rather, you must employ a subjective recognition of the state of consciousness (point of advance along the Path of Initiation) which you, or another, has achieved.

 

Step One: Physical Man

May 20th to June 1st

Mercury

Moving 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.

In 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.

Another 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.

The 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 extensive gesticulations.

The 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.

The 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.

In 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.

Mercury 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.

Because 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.

Gemini 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.

No 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.

In 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.

Best 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 remain oblivious.

When 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.

Blindly 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.

In 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.

The 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 misdirected change.

The 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.

In 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 means.

They 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.

They 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 and cleverness.

Eventually 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.

We 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.

After 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.

This 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 antagonistic opposition.

The 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.

Ultimately 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.

 

Step Two: Emotional Man

June 1st to 11th

Venus

Venus 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.

Constant 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 personal pronoun.

In 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.

Young 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.

The 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.

An 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.

Venus 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.

Although 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.

The 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.

If 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 victory.

Exaggeration 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.

Geminians 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.

Geminians 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 self-destructive.

In 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.

Their 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.

The 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.

Twins 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.

In 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.

Ultimately, 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.

A 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.

 

Step Three: Mental Man

June 11th to 20th

Saturn

Saturn's 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.

Beginning 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.

Saturn 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.

The 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.

The 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 they employ.

Safeguards 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 disgusting.

Pure 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 and speech.

Under 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.

The 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.

In 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.

Although 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.

As 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.

The 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.

The 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.

Eventually 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 mental influence.

Under 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 influence.

Mentally-developed 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.

In 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)

At 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 achieved.

In 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 and direction.

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.
