The subinfluence of your decanate ruler, Gemini, indicates that you are intellectually quick and able to impress people with words, either verbally or in writing. Being a good speaker and enjoying a debate comes from your ability to be decisively outspoken, yet diplomatic.

Being provocative or manipulative, though, can lose you the many benefits of creating harmony and balance in relationships. Very determined when you have a goal in mind, you are capable of inventive and original achievements. However, you may need to protect your highly tuned nervous system to avoid becoming irritable or stressed.

Your Secret Self
A tremendous inner power ensures that with dedication and hard work you can achieve almost anything. An active social life can be either a source of lively activity and entertainment or a distraction from achieving your outstanding potential-sometimes both. Whether socializing or working, you can project a warm and caring consideration for others that may even extend to humanitarian interests and activities.
Having a sixth sense about what motivates people, you can be highly intuitive. If you become too serious, however, you can be stubborn or moody. By staying independent and continually initiating new projects, you strengthen your sense of purpose and determination. Being dramatic and possessing a potential for leadership, you have the ability to effectively benefit from your outstanding potential.
