This week the impeding Impeachment of Donald Trump is the big news. He is being accused of violating his presidential oath, and endangering national security at the very least. Trump is reacting by doubling down with his closest advisers: William Barr, Rudy Giuliani and Mike Pence. And, wouldn’t you know it, each of them is a Gemini SUN SIGN, like Trump himself.
If you think the comparison of these four political creatures to four frightened monkeys is cruel, we apologize to the monkeys. When animals act up they are just being true to their essential nature. When humans ‘monkey” around with reality they must be accountable for the harm they create. Instead of admitting admitting to evil deeds all we see in the White House is deception and obstruction.
Astrologer, Patricia Lantz discusses these negative tendencies in The Dark Side of Gemini. She states “If a Gemini goes to their darkest side they can become erratic, unstable, and volatile. At their worst, they can have garden variety sociopathic and bipolar-like traits, which can lead others to think they might be suffering from a mental illness.” Her list of dark Gemini behaviors includes Manipulators, Compulsive Liars, Back Stabbers, and Chaos Creators.
Yes, It is quite curious that this foursome is completely composed of Geminis. Often people find closeness with a friend or partner with the same sun sign. Sharing an energy creates a similarity of thinking, feeling, or acting depending upon the particular sun sign. In the case of Gemini, there are tendencies toward quick thought and smooth talking, which in themselves are neither good or bad. The effects depend upon the motivations of those involved. Here the relationship primarily deals with gaining and retaining power.
Generally groups, large and small, consist of all sorts of energies. There is not usually not a concentration of one Sun Sign among the members. Since everyone in this foursome was chosen by Donald Trump, it appears that he wanted people around to agree with him and not challenge him. One typical behavior shared by this Gemini group is the ability to speak out of both sides of their mouths. Trickery is one of the most common shadows of Gemini. Evil is avoided by the enlightened Gemini through truth.
Many people are familiar with the Japanese proverb The Three Wise Monkeys. They are Kikazaru, covering his ears, so that he hears no evil; Iwazaru, covering his mouth, so that he speaks no evil; and Mizaru, covering his eyes, so as not see any evil. What is less known that there was an earlier variation with four monkeys. The fourth monkey, Sedzaru, who is actually the first, goes beyond avoiding the evil outside himself. He admonishes us as individuals to BE free of evil. It’s good advice wasted on these four political figures. Let the truth prevail!
