Twitter, Astrology, Gemini and Me - from 23rd February 2009I have been thinking about Twitter.
I am a frequent Twitterer, it appeals to me.
Quick bite sized comments fired off out into the wilds of cyberspace. It doesn't matter to me if anyone is listening, in fact at first I was surprised when someone commented on one of my Tweets, it was like, how do you know that! until I remembered about me and Twitter and this strange relationship we have built up.
Whether the tweets are serious, informative or light hearted, it seems to be the size of them I like. Just 140 words and that's it. No dragged out soliliquays, no long winded explanations. Just thoughts made manifest, pouring from my brain into that concise 140 word container.
Which got me onto the fact that it is a very 'Gemini' thing, and that is perhaps why it suits me so well. I have Gemini rising and I enjoy Twittering!. Then I realised that the friend that introduced me to Twitter has a Gemini Sun, and my cousin who I recently introduced to Twitter as I just knew she would be a natural, and she is! has Gemini rising just like me.
I think Gemini rising is probably a more prolific Twitterer. Other ascendants may interfere with the Gemini chatter, for instance my partner (a Gemini Sun, tweets only when he really has something to say - he has a Scorpio Ascendant ) whereas for me it feels like a very natural process.
So Twitter and a Gemini Ascendant, what do you reckon?
Do you Twitter? What do you think?
(Me: Gemini Ascendant with Mars conjunct it from the 12th house & Mercury in the 3rd house.)
Well the post above was written when I was reasonably new to twitter, and now nearly 11 months later, my perceptions (and my tweets) have changed.
The Gemini's mentioned above are no longer regular twitterers and in keeping with Gemini have probably found something else to spark their enthusiasm, whereas I am still going!
I can probably put this down to my 'fixed' nature and perhaps my Taurus Moon too - once I begin something I tend to have staying power, it then becomes almost habitual - I can be remarkably tenacious.
I am sure that my Gemini Mars and Ascendant without the backing of the fixed fire and earth would have flitted off long ago.
So, do you twitter?
What does your twittering style say about you?
Why do you enjoy twitter?
I would love to hear your thoughts or observations.
