Self-care Gemini

How we take care of ourselves later in life, is distinguished by the way we grow up. However, each Moon Sign evokes different conduct from his peers by communicating his needs non-verbally. In the case of Moon in Gemini the most significant need, for example, is autonomy. Depending on how the needs were met during childhood, each sign develops either constructively or destructively. To develop a healthy way of self-care, you first have to distinguish where your anxieties and survival techniques come from – so you can overcome them. Thus, you have to take a look at your childhood by reading the following article.

However, there might be aspects in your birth chart that indicate your Sun Sign played a bigger role during your childhood. Then, you simply can read the self-care article of your Sun Sign. If you are a mother to a Gemini child, you can read all about the needs of your child in the following.

Basic needs of every human being:

  1. commitment (needs which the Gemini Moon doesn’t evoke at all)
  2. a sense of emotional security and comfort (needs which the Gemini Moon doesn’t evoke)
  3. autonomy (needs which the Gemini Moon Child evokes)
  4. control 
  5. orientation (needs which the Gemini Moon doesn’t evoke)
  6. appreciation
  7. pleasure gain 
  8. avoidance of displeasure (needs which the Gemini child evokes as a child)

What does the Gemini Moon child evoke?

Gemini is a curious child – always on the hop so he can discover new things. Thus, Gemini, first and foremost, evokes his need for autonomy. In contrast, he does not at all evoke the need for emotional security and comfort. Actually, a Gemini Moon child rarely gives his parents the opportunity to comfort him – since he is always moving. As a result, there might be emotional distance between Gemini and his parents.

How does the Gemini Moon Child educate his mother?

A Gemini child quickly teaches his mother to be more curious also since the mother understands her own curiosity as a way to connect with her child – by explaining and communicating a lot. Also, she might become impatient since the lively energy of Gemini might cause her to lose her consistency. If that’s the case, the parents of Gemini then simply leave him be to develop on his own. Then, they don’t set ground rules or boundaries. As a result, Gemini might lack orientation in life – not being able to decide, what they want or stay put in one place or job or even relationship for a longer period of time. 

Negligence of the needs: 

Commitment, Emotional security, and Comfort

If Gemini’s need for autonomy is fulfilled at the expense of commitment, Gemini then grows up without a profound emotional connection. Consequently, he learns to distance himself from his feelings also – by intellectualizing them.

Negligence of the needs: 

Autonomy, and Control

The parents of a Gemini Moon might quickly get impatient with this limitless energy and experimenting nature. As a result, they might tend to discipline their child by forbidding him to be loud and so on. Then, these rules will feel restrictive to Gemini, who will learn to overcompensate by detaching from commitments to free himself from restriction.

Negligence of the needs:

orientation 

Gemini’s curiosity drives him into inconsistency since he gets distracted a lot during his childhood because there is simply too much to discover to not be distracted. In turn, Gemini’s parents might lack consistency also, since they adapt their behavior to their child’s versatile energy. This lack of consistency, however, causes a lack of orientation in the life of Gemini, who then might feel restless during his life.

Survival strategies:

  1. intellectualizing feelings so he can distance himself from emotions
  2. detachment from commitments so he won’t feel captivated
  3. escaping by engaging in one activity after the other so he can distract himself from the lack of orientation
