Gemini and the Problems of Marriage and Partnership
All great partnerships, including marriage, are based upon faith and love; these qualities will carry us through; but, if we are so fortunate as to add an understanding of human nature to them, we are certain to perfect the art of cooperating with others. If we entertain thoughts regarding others that are based upon love and faith, these thoughts become externalized in our actions and attitudes toward them. This, in turn, causes them to react toward us positively and favorably. To see excellence in another is to help him become excellent. We are told to "assume a virtue if you have it not," and the same rule holds with respect to our opinions of others: If we assume that a person has certain virtues, in time he may acquire them. Thus do we contribute to his growth.
Gemini people are congenial with those born in the airy astrological triumvirate they form with Libra and Aquarius. They are also very congenial with the fiery Arians, Leos, and Sagittarians. However, Geminis may find, in persons of the water and earth signs, counterbalancing influences which tend to modify the restlessness of the airy types. Taurians can offer Gemini persons valuable advice in keeping the home fires burning and aid them in balancing the family budget.
Life often delivers us a mate who works for our highest good and who aids us in overcoming our weaknesses and faults. This is not always easy "medicine" to take during the process of adjustment, but the rewards are often great. Gemini should find happiness in marriage for this is the sign of the "twins," or mates. Our best teacher, then, may come to us in the role of our marriage partner, and we may play a corresponding role. Nature has very interesting ways of balancing life forces, and for this reason opposites attract. Therefore, if Geminis desire to accomplish the seventh labor of Hercules-that of finding happiness in marriage partnerships-they can do so through conciliation, cooperation, faith, and love.
