Know all about Gemini (Mithuna) Lagan Person!

1) Mithuna (Gemini) Lagan: Mental character born with a wavering mind. Fond of working and reading, they are ingenious and quick-witted, vivacious and inconsistent, nervous and restless. They are tall and straight in stature in stature and active in motion. Face well developed; there is a depression near the chin, a thin face, sanguine complexion, unusual height if malefic are there, the eyes are clear and the nose snub. They are weak but active.

2) They are very weak but active and tend to become experts in mechanical sciences. They may suffer sudden nervous breakdowns. They must be cautious in moving with the opposite ling. Their mind will be often conscious of their own depravity. They are very clever and possess inherent conversations and literary ability. They are liable to fraud and deception. If evil planets are in Gemini, trickery and deceit will characterize their nature. They are best in occupations where there is much activity.

3) People with Gemini as their ascendant are generally of an intellectual bent of mind unless mercury in their horoscope is people’s influence of such planets as Saturn, Rahu or sum, they are separated from their country or place of birth and have to live away from it most of their life. If Moon too is under the influence the mother of such people is general short lived? If the horoscope belongs to a govt. servant, his life is subject to many frequent transfers from station to station. If there is the association of Mercury and Moon in the 4th house there is no influence on these planets, the person takes part in politics and public affairs. If Mercury Moon and Venus are all under malefic influence, there is every possibility of the native turning mad, for in that event all the relative factors concerned in lunacy viz. the lord of the Lagan, the lord of the 5th house, Mercury and Moon are all affected. If this Lagan together with the planet Mercury is afflicted by malefic such as Mars then the younger brothers of the mother of the native are short lived for the reason that the planet Mercury is the significance of uncles and is also the lord of the 8th house from the 6th- the house of uncles and as such represents their longevity.

4) For people born in this Lagan Mars becomes the lord of the 6th house which is a house of injury and violence. Mars also becomes the lord of the 11th house which being 6th to 6th (BHAVAT BHAVAM) also stands for injuries and violence. Mars for such people is, as it were, saturated with violence. If, therefore, such a Mars is located in Gemini in the Lagan and also aspects Moon then the mind of the native becomes very violent indeed. Such a man may becomes a thief, a murderer or a dacoit. The situation of Mars in the Lagan in such cases indicated the great likelihood of the man receiving an injury in the head, particularly when Mercury too is afflicted by Mars. If Ketu joins Mars, it is evident that the injury will be more serious.

5) Born with Gemini-often tall and straight in nature and are active in motion, forehead broad, eyes clear and nose, a bit snub. They are active and become experts in mathematical sciences, and mechanical sciences provided Saturn has some strong influence over them. They will be "a jack of all trades but master of none". They are vivacious, but liable to be inconsistent. They will have sudden nervous breakdowns and must exercise a certain amount of caution in moving with the opposite ling; a habit of self-control must be cultivated.

Their mind will be often conscious of their own faults.

6) For the Gemini Ascendant Mars is the lord of the 6th and 11th. According to Parashar Hora, Mars is not an auspicious planet for the Gemini ascendant. They should avoid wearing Coral. However, red Coral can be used if Mars is in his own sign in the 11th or 6th in the Major period of Mars. It should be noted that Mars and mercury are not friends.

7) In the birth chart of Gemini ascendant, Sun is the lord of the 3rd house. It will not be useful for the native of this ascendant to wear Ruby unless the Sun is in his own sign in the third house. Even then it should be worn in the major period of Sun when it will make the native courageous and successful in all his ventures.

8) For the Gemini Ascendant Moon is lord of the 2nd house, the house of wealth. Second house is the house of death also (Maark house). There fore, Pearl may not prove very suitable but when the Moon is ill placed and afflicted and the native is going through an adverse time in financial matters, Wearing of Parl is expected in the 12th, and be in his own sing or be in the 11th, 10th or 9th house, the wearing of Pearl will prove beneficial, in the major period of Moon. On the whole, however, Pearl is not a very agreeable stone for this Ascendant as Mercury the lord of the Ascendant is not friendly with Moon.

9) For the Gemini Ascendant Mercury is the lord of the ascendant and the 4th house. The natives of this ascendant should always wear emerald as protective charms. This will bestow them with good health, wealth, longevity, lands and property, domestic happiness, success in the field of education, a smooth and obstruction free life. The beneficial results will be more apparent in the major period and sub periods of Mercury. If Mercury be in his own sign in the Ascendant or the 4th, such a disposition will give rise to a very favorable yoga known as Bhadra yoga (one of the Panchamaha purusha yogas) then the beneficial effects of the yoga will be enhanced by wearing an Emerald.

10) For the Gemini Ascendant Jupiter will be lord of the 7th and 10th house. As a result of this he suffers from Kendra - adhipati dosha. Still if Jupiter is in the Ascendant, 2nd (where he will be exalted). 4th, 5th, 7th (in his own sign giving rise to Hamsa yoga), 9th, 10th (in his own sign again giving rise to Hamsa Yoga) or 11th, it will be useful to wear a yellow Sapphire in his major and sub-periods. If a native suffers set backs in his professional life, he should immediately wear a yellow Sapphire irrespective of the major period that may be operating at that time. Those apprehending death on account of old age or some illness or in shoes horoscope there are indications of short life, should not wear yellow Sapphire, as Jupiter is strong death inflicting planet for this Ascendant.

11) For the Gemini Ascendant Venus will be lord of the 5th and the 12th house. Being the lord of the 5th, a trine, Venus is an auspicious planet for this ascendant, Moreover, Venus is a friend of Mercury- the lord of this ascendant. Consequently wearing of a Diamond in the major and sub-periods of Venus will bless the native with children, happiness, intelligence, name, fame and good fortunes. Wearing of diamond with emerald will always be of immense benefit to the native.

12) For the Gemini ascendant Saturn is lord of the 9th, a trine. I consider Saturn as an auspicious planet for this ascendant. It will, therefore, be quite beneficial for the native to wear Blue Sapphire in the major periods of Saturn. Therefore, wearing of emerald, with blue sapphire will prove more advantageous.
