Gemini First Decan (May 21 to 31)
The son of Jupiter:
Gemini Decan 1 is ruled by Jupiter. The sun crusades through the constellations of Taurus the Bull, Perseus the Hero and the River from May 21 to 31. This section of the sky houses the famous star clusters the Hyades and the Pleiades, plus of course the royal star Aldebaran in the Bull’s eye.These clusters have stormy reputations, Alcyone is scandalous in love and the Hyades bring tears and violence. Perseus is not the most sedate fellow either, brandishing his sword and grasping poor Medusa’s decapitated head.
With Jupiter’s influence here then we get activists and militants who are on a spiritual or religious mission. They see themselves as spiritual warriors and reformers, on this earth to stamp out evil. This area is also very artistic, so those in the entertainment business here will always have a socio-political message behind what they do. They will also want to gain status, and be admired for their intellect. These people are great conversationalists, come out with great one liners and have the ability to abruptly and skilfully steer the discussion off any subject matter that is not their forte. The last thing these brainiacs wants to appear as is stupid!
Gemini decan 1 is the thinking mans warrior, they will rescue damsels in distress, the underdog and the hard done by, all because they want to be the good Samaritan. They are not fighting for the thrill of spilling blood, good gracious no! The twins are chivalrous knights, but nevertheless can’t help getting embroiled in dramas, mainly because they cant keep their mouth shut. Gemini decan 1 thrives on scandal and they are terrible gossips. The medieval “scold” mask was just made for these jesters. These folk are naturally very funny, the mix of Jupiter’s joviality and Mercury wit cannot fail to tickle even the most dour person.
The negative side of Gemini decan 1 is a certain shiftiness however, they could be trickster supreme with Aldebaran’s great gallant charm and Alcyone’s supposedly “Evil disposition”. Gemini decan 1 can get away with murder just because they make you laugh so much that your sides split, followed by your purse, followed by your shiny pennys falling straight into their grubby little hands. Gemini decan 1 are passionate about what they believe in, but because they also have been appointed by God to be his soldier they can also be incredibly arrogant. Having an archangel star here is all very well, but its volatile energy can taketh as well as giveth if the subject gets too big for his boots.

Alcyone is the main star of the Pleiades; this mysterious star cluster has beguiled us for thousands of years. Their role is supposed to help humanity evolve by purifiying our astral and etheric bodies in order to receive higher wisdom. Dissolving away our dirty devils, rather like Perseus’s mission to slay the demon Medusa. Our hero risked life and limb to rescue his love Andromeda, so very chivalrous and noble. Or was he really after her father King Cepheus kingdom..? Somehow it all seems to good to be true, which is why Gemini decan 1 can get the reputation of being a cad. Alcyone has a bit of a sleazy reputation too. Some keywords are “vain, venerated, indulgent, spoilt, easily flattered, flirty, beautiful, poetic, talented, theatrical, ravishing, handsome, designer, dandy”.
These stars, like the Gemini archetype as a whole are a mass of contradictions; they can be the good twin or the evil twin. One twin is constantly at war with its shadow and they are constantly on the verge of becoming the very “darkness” they are trying to eliminate. The challenge for Gemini decan 1 is to try not to create more divisiveness in their zeal to spiritually spring-clean. New-age light workers and Christian fundamentalists alike make me think of Aldebaran, since he is so darned worthy. The Alcyone bunch are the activists, bohemians, eco-warriors and the liberals who are so incredibly “right-on” and politically correct. Gemini decan 1 is all about duality and polarity, directly opposite Aldebaran we get Antares, his nemesis, but that’s another story…
Geek Chic Warriors:
Mirfak is on the right side of Perseus. This constellation “is said to denote adventurous individuals, but also those who are less than honest in their dealings with others.” Robson also says Perseus has an “intelligent, strong, bold and adventurous nature, but a tendency to lying.” I get the picture of your cheeky cockney chappie who “ducks and dives” to make a living, a modern day folk hero. Mirfak likes to brag and is full of bravado, like Muhammad Ali in his pre-fight spiel. Sceptrum is now part of Eridanus but was once part of an obsolete constellation known as Sceptrum Brandenburgicum.
The sceptre is a ceremonial staff used to display power and authority. There is a real feel of display to this decan. Is it all an act though? Jupiter can be very theatrical and spectacular while Gemini is about surface, and can wear many masks. It makes me think of the wizard in the Wizard of Oz, that geeky old man operating the booming wizard voice and theatrics from behind the curtain. He didn’t think he was impressive enough on his own. Gemini decan 1 promises much and seems suspect, but like the Clintwood inspired animated spaghetti western film Rango, the apparent charlatan did in fact come good in the end.
