We all have different sides to ourselves and to our personalities, but some people seem to be two-faced. We’ve all met someone like this who has one face to them that may seem nice, but another side that’s entirely too dark or chaotic.
Gemini is the sign of the Twins, so this is the sign that often pops up with people who are two-faced. This is especially true with a personal planet - the Sun, Moon, Mercury, Venus, or Mars - or with the Rising at a critical or anaretic degree in Gemini. The anaretic degree in Gemini in particular seems to bring this two-faced quality out, and you’ll usually see it in men when it’s their Sun or Mars (since the Sun rules men and Mars is the male alter ego, ruler of masculinity), and in women with their Moon or Venus (since the Moon rules women and Venus is the female alter ego, ruler of femininity). With Mercury and the Rising, it may be more in the way they come across rather than who they genuinely are, so it’s more of a two-faced mask than their real face.
You’re not doomed to be two-faced if you have this in your chart, but it does likely mean you have to be more aware of this tendency. In typical astrology fashion, you may not even know you’re doing it! Or it may be something you’ve developed as a defense mechanism that needs to be addressed. This is something that can be a detriment in your life if you don’t control it. Once you do get control, it can be very beneficial and give you the ability to adjust to people and situations with ease, and develop an interesting, multi-faceted personality rather than one that drives everyone bonkers!
