The Gemini sign is ruled by the planet Mercury and because your birthday is within the first Decan, or part, of the Gemini sign you actually have a double dose of Mercury’s influence. Being the planet of mentality, your gifts for communication are enhanced by the ability to look at things in a rational and thoughtful way. In addition to fueling your intelligence, your planetary power gives you a great sense of humor. Whether or not your realize it, those around you greatly appreciate your special brand of thoughtful humor. If your planetary influence had one downfall, it would be your perfectionist qualities. You may find yourself frustrated when you, or those around you, do not perform to the best of their abilities. While this is understandable, you must have more realistic expectations.
