Gemini Rising Sign - Gemini Ascendant
Someone with Gemini rising will find that the Geminian characteristics will marry in an interesting way with their Sun-sign characteristics. Should you, for instance, have Gemini rising but a "strong silent" Sun-sign such as Scorpio, there will be a very lively, talkative, perhaps adventurous person, with a liking for everything that is new and different inside you somewhere, "trying to get out".
An individual with Gemini rising may be quieter in company than at home or with close friends.
In many cases, objectives will be clear cut, and there will be singleness of purpose matched with great versatility and variety of interest in any chosen field of study or career. Geminian duality will work in a rather different way, when Gemini rises.
It is often the case that while this type is as versatile as someone with a Gemini Sun-sign, they can be more attracted to working through a great variety of projects in turn, rather than having many different jobs on the go at the same time. This is, in essence, a good thing for them, for restlessness can be a more deep-rooted problem than they may care to admit to, or accept.
When Gemini rises, the need for challenge and a tendency to enjoy taking risks can emerge, and the need for freedom of expression within a permanent relationship is something that must not be ignored, and indeed will have to be accepted by a partner.
