GEMINI > vata / 5th cakram / Athena & Artemis

Okay, first I just have to say as a Gemini I absolutely LOVE finding all the ways the things I study correlate! With that being said, I really want to share with you how I’ve seen the crossover in studying the Cakra system, the dosha in Ayurveda, the 7 main Greek Goddesses as a part of the psyche, the 10 planets & of course - the 12 zodiac signs!

There is so much relationship between each, I love seeing how so many modalities & ancient wisdoms correlate & can unite as One! So without further ado, here is our witty Gemini //

Gemini > our storyteller, our teacher & our witness of the zodiac! This airy fairy sign correlates to that airy fairy Vata, the chatterbox 5th cakram, & again making an appearance, the two boss Goddesses – Athena & Artemis!

Vata & Gemini kind of go hand in hand, like twins perhaps? With all that air energy they flitter from thought to thought, idea to idea & person to person. It can be hard to get their head out of the clouds but they are incredibly creative types! They somehow manage to keep their feet on the ground & their ears clear of clouds as they listen & observe everything around them. This energy loves to learn & with that, they also love to talk about what they’ve learned… or just talk! LOL! The 5th cakram is conducive for this & Vata-Gemini is easily tapped right into this energy center. The 5th cakram is all thought, expression & voice and Vata-Gemini have a surplus of all three!

This isn’t to say they’re mindlessly chattering away. Athena brings forth wisdom & from all the information Gemini has collected, turning it into knowledge & thus wisdom, unites this archetype nicely. Athena also represents the father’s daughter & Gemini easily takes on that role as they’re more often than not slightly tom-boyish in nature. Artemis steps in & represents the sister, another role Gemini takes on with ease! Gemini is constantly understanding their relationship to others & the world around leading these two Goddesses as perfect archetypes.

Gemini's ruling planet Mercury aids in all this learning, chatter & relations but also brings in a couple energies unique to itself. Mercury brings in the 6th cakram & the Goddess Persephone. The 6th cakram can transmit Mercurial messages in the form of intuition, visions, & bring forth clarity. This higher sense of consciousness can also be seen reflected in Persephone as the Goddess of receptivity & queen of the underworld. Mercury was the only one allowed to travel between the heavens, earth & the underworld connecting Mercury & Persephone to the intuitions of deeper mental truths. Though hard to wrap this one up, this cluster of correlations is airy, fairy & highly intellectual!
