2. Mercury in Gemini—Rapid,
3. Mercury in Gemini—Rapid
intake of information.
4. Mercury in Gemini—
“Facility of mental approach in any direction and in connection
with the many opposites in manifestation”. Thus the mind easily
links the many opposites. Fluidity.
5. Mercury in Gemini—The
mind which is competent to relate and synthesize aggregations of factors
in the field of consciousness.
6. Mercury in Gemini—Mental
detachment facilitated through the perspective provided by wit and humor.
7. Mercury in Gemini—Capable
of understanding the nature and value of paradox, because of the capacity
and tendency to entertain valuable but apparently contradictory thoughts.
8. Mercury in Gemini—Unpredictable

9. Mercury in Gemini—Manipulative
mentality—for better or for worse.
10. Mercury in Gemini—Potential

1. Mercury in Gemini—Shedding
the light of intelligence.
2. Mercury in Gemini—The
mind establishes ‘brotherly love’ between the pairs of opposites
soul and personality.
3. Mercury in Gemini—The
mind which characterizes those who can be called the ‘Messenger
of the soul’.
4. Mercury in Gemini—The
mind which makes it possible for the individual to speak with two voices
the voice of the personality and the voice of the soul.
5. Mercury in Gemini—The
mind which can establish a fluid and natural dialogue with the Soul
on its own plane (or with the contents of the causal body). The dialogue
is relatively easy and mutually responsive. Such ‘conversation’
becomes the means to illumination. There is, thus, a facile and frequent
mental interplay between what has been called the “pair of opposites”
(in this case, soul and personality).
6. Mercury in Gemini—The
mind speaks the words of the soul. The fluid, verbal mind becomes an
excellent verbal interpreter of that which is ‘spoken’ by
7. Mercury in Gemini—The
mind which especially facilitates the development of “Pure Reason”
or “Inclusive Reason” (concerning which, see Esoteric Psychology
Vol. II, pp. 393-394 under the “Techniques of Fusion”).
This section on “Inclusive Reason” beautifully describes
the intuition at its most ‘reasonable’.
8. Mercury in Gemini—Bridging
(the ongoing building and utilization of the Antahkarana) occurs through
constant and easy use of the ‘Bridge of Light’. There is
much going ‘back and forth’, ‘up and down’ (figuratively
speaking). The bridge is built through the frequency of use. Many ‘strands’
are created through many ‘trips’ over the so-called “gap
in consciousness”. There is the ability to use the ‘intuitive
elevator’ with adroitness.
9. Mercury in Gemini—The
light shed on human situations via the intuition, is particularly the
light of intelligence. Soul ‘messages’ are, to a great extent,
10. Mercury in Gemini—
One quality of this light, is the light which reveals the relationships
between all things. The content of soul ‘messages’ ‘lightens’
the life of the personality. There can be an uplifting quality and many
otherwise heavy conditions can be taken ‘lightly’.
11. Mercury in Gemini—The
mind of the one who learns easily. The soul becomes the teacher and
the personality the student, the learner. Actually, in this relationships,
there is a facility of mutual rapport, and both learn from each other.
12. Mercury in Gemini—The
mind which transforms adept intellect into intuition, thus moving from
the apprehension of the many relations to a realization of the patterns
which unite the many relations.
13. Mercury in Gemini—The
mind which establishes right (or, at least, better) relations between
soul and personality by keeping the channels of communication open and
14. Mercury in Gemini—The
mind which reveals the ‘modes of unification’ characteristic
of the Christ Energy. This would be Mercury in relation to the second
ray which is transmitted through the constellation Gemini. Soul-light
reveals unsuspected lines of unification existing between contents of
consciousness (whether sensory or cognitive contents).
15. Mercury in Gemini—The
capacity for intuitive ‘leaps’ pronounced; earlier evidences
of this are tendencies towards discontinuity of thought.
16. Mercury in Gemini—The
soul/personality conflict brought about by increased soul/personality
communication centers around whether the personality is the messenger
of the soul or a messenger of its own personality nature.
