The Gemini Mixtape: Twin Hype


Your versatility knows no bounds and you possess and insatiable curiosity which reins eternal. No matter your biological age, its as if the fountain of youth has sprinkled it’s sacred waters in your midst. Yes, Gemini, we’re talking about you.

Of course, you probably knew all of that since you seem to be two steps ahead when it comes to news. Your mission…… is to distribute the information to us mere mortals who might be a tad bit slower on the uptake.

Simultaneously, you also must find the meaning in all of these fragments in order to weave a cohesive philosophy to live by. Just like your ruling planet, Mercury, you are quick.Able to comprehend and classify in the blink of an eye.

The Gemini path consists of one which focuses on the retention of the childlike sense of wonder. Not child-ish, but child-like. Being able to teach and show others how the most mundane item or function can be viewed from many different angles. A fresh set of eyes is the gift you have been given. I encourage you to open those eyes as widely as possible. Not only to the world, but also yourself.  To quote Black Thought of the Roots: “what does it all mean, what’s it all for, with knowledge of yourself then your through the first door.”

I present to you a musical selection that embodies your energy, Gemini.

Enjoy your season.
