People who are ascendant in Gemini, by definition, have different aspects of the Gemini personality.
In my opinion the Gemini personality is one of the most fascinating of all the signs of the Zodiac. It really is. While Gemini’s have often been cursed with a bad reputation, this is really is completely unjustified.
It really all boils down to a misunderstanding of the true Gemini character. If you look at the Gemini fully, you would understand that it’s based on the twin.
This can be a comforting thing because you are basically dealing with two different people, then their two different personalities, wrapped up in the same body.
This can also be very confusing and can lead to feelings of betrayal because you might think that you know one aspect of the Gemini and all of a sudden certain things change and you find yourself being disappointed or feeling stabbed in the back.
So, which view is real? Which view is more accurate? Both of them are accurate.
To take matters even further and deeper, it really boils down to how much time, effort and energy you put into knowing the Gemini in your life.
People who are as ascendant in Gemini are not born under the classic Gemini sign; however, they do have Gemini tendencies.
If you have general personality traits and then you see certain things that just don’t fit, you may want to chalk that up to the fact that you are ascendant in Gemini.
So, it’s always a good idea to find out the elements of your rising signs so you can get a clear and full picture of you who you are in terms of the horoscope.
The Problematic Gemini
Historically, Gemini’s have been problematic. This doesn’t have to be the case. As I’ve mentioned earlier, people can misunderstand the Gemini because they don’t really put the time and effort into truly knowing the Gemini.
If you know the Gemini fully and you know the different aspects of their personality, the different directions they can go, and their breaking points, chances are you would not be surprised when they turn a different face.
This is what throws people off. When they go through a certain change and challenges, they feel betrayed and led down when the Gemini in their life seems to turn on them.
The truth is you brought it on yourself. You didn’t really take the time to know that Gemini fully because that Gemini is just being himself. He’s just emphasizing different aspects of his or her personality. That face that you are seeing now that you don’t like or seems so surprising is actually been there all along; you just didn’t bother to look.
The problem is in the depth of your friendship and relationship instead of anything fundamentally wrong with the Gemini personality.
Gemini Rising is Charming
Gemini’s are very charming. They know how to charm the pants off people. They know to say the right words but more importantly, they mean it.
There is a certain level of authenticity with Gemini’s that make them feel like an old sock or old pair of shoes that they are very reassuring.
This is what draws people to Gemini’s and this is also why people feel so betrayed when they fail to see other aspects of the Gemini.
They feel that “I thought I knew this person”, “I thought this person set me at ease”, I thought this person can be trusted”. The truth is this is all true. The problem is you didn’t bother to become friends with the complete Gemini.
They never change. The problem is you only chose to look at one aspect of their personality. That’s your fault, not theirs. They are very charming, but if you’re drawn in by their charm, at least put in the effort to know them completely.
If you have a Gemini rising personality, you tend to be open-minded.
Regardless of which sun sign or horoscope sign that you are born under, your open-mindedness is a great thing.
Your open-mindedness makes you a great conversationalist, team player at work, and listener in any relationship. Whether you’re just friends or whether you’re dating, it doesn’t matter. Your open-mindedness is a breath of fresh air.
Again, this can also be a source of misunderstanding. People get enamored or attracted to your open-mindedness and they feel betrayed or led down when they see the different aspect of yourself.
You can be quite close-minded if you made a decision. You can also be quite judgmental.
If this is allowed to other people, then it should be allowed to you. The problem with the Gemini rising personality is that people think that they can pick and choose different aspects of the Gemini personality.
In other words, they try to pigeonhole or restrict you to one side of your personality. As you can probably tell, this is completely unfair. It’s unfair to do it to a Taurus or a Capricorn, why shouldn’t it be unfair to do it to the Gemini?
You Are Easily Misunderstood
You probably already know this aspect of your personality. Gemini rising is easily misunderstood because people fail to properly read Gemini traits and behaviors.
They tend to look at the very positive side of Gemini and stay there. The problem is just like with knowing any type of person regardless of which sign of the horoscope they are born under, you have to know the complete person.
When people feel betrayed or stabbed in the back by a Gemini it’s because the relationship failed seriously. A relationship fails when you don’t go out of your way to truly know that person.
When you don’t exercise the patience and the stamina to truly understand the different aspects of that person’s personality.
Unfortunately, Gemini’s bare the brunt of this level of disappointment because the change can be quite dramatic; it’s like day and night.
You might feel that you know this person so well and all of a sudden, this completely different face shows up and you just don’t know what to do or you feel really betrayed and disappointed.
If you are ascendant in Gemini, you already know this. You probably have lost friendships because of this. The good news is it’s not your fault; it’s theirs. However, that is cold comfort because you still lost a friendship.
It may be a good idea for you to be more open regarding different aspects of your personality and invite people in your life to truly know you inside and out.
How Can the Gemini Rising Personality Help You?
People who are ascendant in Gemini are actually operating with a lot of advantages. The Gemini charm is legendary. The Gemini open-mindedness is definitely an asset. Many people have lack charm.
Most people are closed-minded. These facts alone give you a tremendous competitive advantage, whether we’re talking about dating, relationships, or the career world.
Regardless of whatever environment you find yourself in: your charm, your open-mindedness and your ability to get along with other people can truly help you a lot.
Also, believe it or not, your ability to change and show different aspects of your personality can also be a benefit because when emergencies happen and circumstances change, they often forces to show different aspects of our personality.
This can be a serious advantage.
What to Look Out For
If you are ascendant in Gemini, keep in mind that your Gemini rising personality can attract the wrong people.
You can attract people that are obsessive, that are looking to recreate you in their image, that cherry-pick their friends based on which friends would make them feel better about themselves.
You need to be on the watch for these people, and to figure out these people immediately and make a quick decision regarding whether you want these people in your life because these are the kind of people that will hate you once the classic Gemini aspect of your personality comes out.
