Gemini-Leo: similarities and differences
by Richard Pellard
English translation by Julien Rouger

The interpretation examples that we are suggesting are very far from being exhaustive: they only show and outline a general frame describing the problematics of both Signs. They should therefore not be taken literally. Each being brings indeed its own responses, more or less original, to the issues raised by a Sign. Through combining logic, observation and imagination, you will be able to develop a thousand other possible meanings, a thousand other variations on the same theme.

It’s possible that your Sun Sign is not dominant in your birth chart. One can for instance be born under the Aries Sign while the most valorized Sign is actually Taurus. In this case, it will probably be difficult for you to recognize yourself in the interpretations that are offered to you below. You will have to refer to the interpretations corresponding to your actual dominant Sign in order to relate to these. For further information, please feel free to visit our website and get a free mini-interpretation of your birth chart with our software Astrosoft.


Adapted Gemini and Leo


S+

Similarity Gemini-Leo: Excitation strength

S+Expending Excitation strength for Gemini: the libertarian. The natural Excitation strength made some progress since the Aries phase: Excitation became widespread; the energy lost its initial brutality through spreading. Multiple interests, all-around exploratory curiosity, greater sensitivity to the abstract, to the appearances, to the infinite facets of the outside world. Broad openness, immense receptiveness, listening to all perspectives, varied initiatives.

S+Unblocking Excitation strength for Leo: the champion. The Leo reacts to any situation that encloses, delimits, ties up: to break free, to surpass oneself, to break one’s chains, to get out the hood, to defeat one’s opponents, to overcome encirclements, to refuse fate, paralysis, standstills, quagmires. To dare, to break away, to be a hero, to solve, to expand, to conquer, to be radiant, to clear obstacles, to increase one’s power, to emancipate from any authority.


Difference Gemini-Leo: No induction versus Positive induction

PIPositive induction for Leo: the conqueror. The concentration of protective Inhibition onto a narrow field allows to make the most precious immune, to keep the essential safe, to protect the vital core. From this bolted stronghold, one can take all the risks, all the braveries, one can radiate in complete safety. Open egocentricity, magnanimity, generosity, etc.


Q+Sl+

Difference Gemini-Leo: Excitation quickness versus Excitation slowness

Q+Excitation quickness for Gemini: the chameleon. The Excitation quickness reaches its climax: brisk, flexible, free-flowing reactions, hyper-adaptability to the variety of stimuli from the outside world. One flits from one thing to another, comfortable with change, movement, diversity, transformations. Versatility, jack-of-all-trades, liking for what’s multicolor or polyphonic, great tactic subtlety. Everything stimulates, galvanizes, interests, anything triggers enthusiastic reactions. Optimal convertibility, multi-faceted unpredictable behaviour.

Sl+Excitation slowness for Leo: the infallible. The concern for organizing and mastering is clearly displayed: it’s about declaredly legislating, having control, being in charge. High, persistent, persevering ambitions; strong, long-lasting, obsessing passions. Audaciousnesses are handled carefully, conquests are fortified and progressively extended. One thinks about everything, one aspires to be master of oneself, without leaving anything to chance. Radiant power due to a deep self-control.


SSSP

Difference Gemini-Leo: Sense of syntheses versus Sense of proportions

SSSense of syntheses for Gemini: the one-man band. Excitation reduces Inhibition to the bare bones. The refusal or the active surpassing of antagonisms allows everything and everyone to meet freely. The most heterogeneous elements mingle naturally, each of these being fully autonomous while connected to the others by an overall dynamics that combines apparently irreducible dualities. Humanism is instinctive, universalism is spontaneous. The contradictions that emerge from opposing viewpoints can even out from the moment everyone respects the basic freedom of the other.

SPSense of proportions for Leo: the magnanimous. The Sense of syntheses gives way to the Sense of proportions: one must strike a balance between complying with one’s environment and finding one’s own way out, one must combine offensive boldnesses with asset management, overcome adversity while remaining magnanimous, establish one’s power without binding (too much) the others. One deals with the enemy in order to defeat him better. In the long run, the general interest (Sense of syntheses) might lose ground in favour of the Sense of opposites: one then reaps individually the benefits. Well-balanced ambivalence allows to be authoritarian while remaining liberal: this is the “long leash” policy, that consists in leaving a maximum of apparent freedom to the others in order to control them better.


Unadapted Gemini and Leo


w−

Similarity Gemini-Leo: Inhibition weakness

w−Eliminating Inhibition weakness for Gemini: the exhibitionist. It’s like for Aries, but one step up: the lack of restraint and control is almost total, radical, general; unrestrained, inconsiderate, scattered over anything pointless, anecdotal, ephemeral. Like a feather in the wind: no center, no interiority, no depth. Lacking in foresight, thoughtless, whimsical, futile, over-suggestible, it’s a naive puppet at the mercy of stronger and more determined wills.

w−Differentiating Inhibition weakness for Leo: the blunderer. No subtlety, no finesse, no sense of complex differentiating analyses: it’s a bull in a china shop. No moderation, no tact, no reserve: he’s clumsy, intrusive, oafish, puts his foot in his mouth. No sidestepping, no nuances, no crafty distinctions: the unadapted Leo lacks sophistication, is unable of having the minimum of targeted hypocrisy essential for the game of social relationships. He’s simplistic, reckless, blunderer, humongous.


sl−q−

Difference Gemini-Leo: Unadapted Inhibition slowness versus Unadapted Inhibition quickness

sl−Unadapted Inhibition slowness for Gemini: the intellectualist. Like for Aries, there are two possibilities. Either the brake can’t be pulled, and in this case the Gemini is an absolute weather vane, pathologically nervous, suffering from extreme distraction and instability. Or the brake can’t be released, which can lead the Gemini to intellectualist imaginary constructs that disregard the reality of the physical world; unless he takes refuge into an absolute indifference, possibly supported by a philosophy of failure and nothingness. Incommunicable, unverifiable abstract hermetism.

q−Unadapted Inhibition quickness for Leo: the wimp. He frets over his personal freedom, his popularity, his outperforming power. He’s irrationally afraid that the (real or imaginary) vulnerable spots of his armour are picked upon. This can be a gutsy on the defensive, aborting his bragging initiatives out of sudden fear of their results, even if this means bluffing or boasting in order to cover it up. Once facing real dangers, he prefers rushing headlong so as not to decline, unless he beats a hasty and shameful retreat in a panic beyond description.


UP

Difference Gemini-Leo: Ultraparadoxical phase versus Paradoxical phase

UPUltraparadoxical phase for Gemini: the misunderstanding. The loss of the sense of antagonisms leads to an inversion of the Excitation-Inhibition system: what is normally inhibiting becomes stimulating, hence a lure for what’s harmful, dangerous, immoral, taboo, etc. Absurdity becomes sensible, “you” becomes “I” (active and spontaneous identification to the others, impersonation, parody, mime, splitting). Taste for blatant illogicalities, preposterous speculations. At best he succeeds, diplomat of the ephemeral, in blending the most opposing viewpoints into a fragile and fleeting alliance. At worst that’s a constant split, incredible stunts to justify every contradiction.

Paradoxical phase for Leo: the reckless. While really and objectively serious events only elicit his indifference, this doesn’t apply whenever what he considers to be his vulnerable spots gets a minor blow. Tickle his pride and you will bring about some storms. Announce him a general catastrophe and he will keep his composure. He overvalues the feats, what’s enormous or ornamental; he plays down what’s insignificant, subtle, underlying. He underestimates real obstacles, serious dangers and keeps a blind faith into bold challenges, rash initiatives. Showing too much his desire to win and to dominate, he’s likely to get his victories stolen by smarter ones.
