The planet Mercury rules the Gemini sign, but because you are born in the second Decan, or part, of the sign, you are also influenced by Venus. Mercury influences an agile mind, which is only enhanced with Venus’s influence of cooperation and charm. Some people find you irresistible and you must take care not to abuse your natural appeal. Your need for harmony results in a dependence on a group of friends. This predisposition may become an issue if you don’t take care to select dependable and worthwhile companions.
