Nazaudy, a spark in your curious mind

Ascendant in Gemini

The Ascendant (AC) represents your outer personality, the external character that you irradiate and that others perceive. It is also called the Rising sign and is the Zodiac constellation that was rising over the horizon at the East in the moment of your birth. In Astrology the sign of the Ascendant determines how the others see you, your appearance as well as how you react to the world and what you expect from others around you, while the sign where the Sun resides at your moment of birth (your star sign) indicates how you are inside. Those born with Ascendant in Gemini rising see the world as a place to learn. They are curious about the people around them. Sounds similar to Sagittarius rising? Well it is, but there are some important differences. While Sagittarius seeks to expand their mental and physical horizons in a broad sense, Gemini is mostly interested in moving about in their social circles. These are people who love to ask questions, to move around freely, and to mingle. Definitely restless and often quick in physical expression, natives of Ascendant in Gemini exude an air of impatience even if they don’t mean it. In fact, there is a cleverness to Ascendant in Gemini that can intimidate some, especially sensitive folk. Their facility with words can be a wonderful asset, although sometimes Ascendant in Gemini individuals identify too much with their mental agility and forget, in their personal interactions and communications, to nurture the people around them. A certain lack of warmth in presentation can be the result, and although this style is generally a facade, it is not immediately apparent to most. People with, for example, predominant Water signs may feel a little ill at ease with Gemini rising people (that is, before they get to know them more personally), while strong Air types more fully appreciate the fun and cleverness of these individuals.

Ascendant in Gemini

There are two styles of presentation most common with Ascendant in Gemini people. One style is bubbly, changeable, talkative, and a little quirky. These natives are interesting and fun. They constantly explain things, whether it’s their own behavior and opinion or those of the world around them. Another distinct “style” is a rather cool and intellectual demeanour. These natives are often quite witty and clever, but they present themselves in a less cheerful and changeable way than the first group. Their observations are sharp and the overall manner is a tad brusque. No matter the style, Ascendant in Gemini natives are given to analysis and making sense of their world. Their powers of observation are well-developed, they are mentally active (more often than not, their minds are racing!), and they almost always have something bright or witty to say. It is easy for individuals with this position to get sidetracked, as their curiosity is large, their minds are quick, and their attention spans rather short! As children, natives born with Ascendant in Gemini are often labelled as the intellectual, inquisitive, and perhaps odd child. Many feel their upbringing lacked some warmth. In one-to-one relationships, Ascendant in Gemini people often seek a certain amount of personal freedom and space. They enjoy intellectual debates and exchanging ideas. Although they often demand a fair amount of freedom, they are often just as willing to give their partners room to breathe.

Communication is a must for Ascendant in Gemini

No one, not even themselves,can keep up with Ascendant in Gemini. This placement is extraordinarily quick-moving. They do everything fast. They think fast, reply fast, walk fast, eat fast and, simply, live … fast. While you might assume that this makes for a very proactive and efficient person, Gemini rising isn't it. This sign doesn't do well with follow-through and doesn't like the idea of staying tied down to one thing if they lose interest (which is a lot of the time). In a million and one ideas, it's maybe the “one” that they will actually spend time on. But don't let this bother you. Gemini rising personalities are the best when you need a good pick-me-up. Their optimism and excitement for life are infectious. They'll have you up and moving in no time. What's more: They will stimulate you as well. Ruled by Mercury, Gemini is a never-ending thinker. With an attitude that believes we're always learning, this sign loves to learn and is always garnering new hobbies. On the flip side, get ready for an inordinate amount of questions from a Gemini rising if you're introducing them to a new topic of interest. The first impression an Ascendant in Gemini gives off to others is someone lively, and exciting, who always has a story to tell. Get lost in their infectious excitement. Feed off their boundless energy. However, this rising sign can come across as overly talkative (or even rude if they aren't letting others speak) and very eager. But no one can fault an Ascendant in Gemini for being too friendly, most of them can make friends with anyone.

Gemini Attributes: Dual and indecisive but above all flexible, versatile, rarely rude or vulgar, changeable like the weather unless Mercury is in fixed sign
