Myself? I've not read this book. I have far too many books on my priority list that I refuse to make time for an astrology book. I'm not much into stereotyping people according to their star signs/ horoscopes, stuff like that. I'm more of a believer in the Terminator movie slogan- "There's no fate but what we make".
However, some of my friends are into this stuff- nothing wrong with it. I enjoy their insights and information on the subject. Last year, two of my good friends sent me emails about Sextrology's take on my star sign, (the straight Gemini male). Two emails by two intelligent beings on the same subject in the span of a few days, I had to read on, right?
It was a really lengthy write up and after reading it all, I was actually shocked- in a good way.
I really started to like Sextrology's take on me, THIS Gemini was awesome! I would love to be this guy. They even mentioned quite a few of my personal heroes that shared the same star signs as I do! After reading it, I actually decided to become that guy; that proved to be quite difficult after a few weeks, so I gave up and went back to being what I was most comfy with: Myself. Maybe being myself was being a 'true' gemini, perhaps?
I've copied the email from my friends here for all you stereo fiends to enjoy and I'll leave it up to you to decide if it's true or a load of hogwash.
Gemini Male: A Wise-Guy Man- (excerpts from Sextrology: The astrology of sex and the sexes)
The leader of the pack, Gemini male is a mover and a shaker, he's one interesting cat and a smooth operator. He's a "finger on the trigger" kind of guy. Gemini man has his ear to the ground and his finger on the pulse. He's as aware of major current events as he is equally aware of what's going on in the streets. Gemini male keeps tabs on things and he's always the one with the best diggs on anyone or anything you'd care to know about.
|Tony Soprano and his merry men. One of my favourite HBO series' ever.|
Gemini male is the zodiac's "wise-guy" - a "Goodfellow" - one of Tony Soprano's made men. He works his position with charm, grace and an air of dignity - he exudes confidence and complete control - even if his dealings happen to be nefarious in nature, he'll conduct himself as if he's a top executive at it. Gemini male is a self-made man and he's usually on top of his game. As in keeping with his affiliation to those ballsy wise-guys, Gemini male prefers the company of home town girls above all else. Don't get me wrong, he likes plenty of variety and will step outside the lines to get it, being somewhat of a playboy; however, he is at his most comfortable in the company of his "homies." Gemini male is also strongly attracted to very feminine high-class "tail." Those guys in Vegas with the $4k an hour call-girl on their arm? I'm pretty sure those are Gemini men.
|Come on! Other star signs don't like classy tail?, er, I mean birds, I mean, Women?|
When you walk into a room with a Gemini male, chances are, he knows just about everybody in it. He keeps himself abreast of the "whose who" in the world and he's rubbed elbows with pretty much all walks of life - from top level executives all the way down to street level drug dealers. Gemini male is your "it" guy, your go-to guy whose a part of the inner circle. Sextrology explains, "Gemini man is an operator. He can't sit still, constantly striving to set the wheels of his myriad plans and projects in motion. He is the zodiac's premier urbane figure, the proverbial man on the pavement with his ear perpetually to the ground and his finger on the pulse of cultural trends, especially those rooted in localized experience.
The quintessential insider, Gemini male infiltrates whatever milieu, private or professional that strikes his fancy - forming close alliances, ring-leading, and invariably living by his own set of rules. He has the soul of a street poet, if not a rabble-rouser, with a knack for voicing the needs of the common man. Indeed, he may be something of a rogue, in conflict with, and even fighting against, "establishment" views. Gemini male gravitates toward media-driven vocations, those steeped in the commercial exchange of ideas, which brings him into contact with an ever-revolving cast of characters. In rare moments of downtime, he still craves stimulation, reveling in close ties with family and friends, as well as being drawn to private clubs, lodges, and cliquey associations. Party-going is a particularly Geminian penchant. Something of a playboy; he nonetheless seeks to settle down with a real hometown type of girl - his perfect counterpart - with whom he hopes to share a lifestyle, in any number of variations, along an American-dream-like theme."

The Gemini Male Can Be A Great Friend And Confidant
I happen to have a close friend who is a Gemini male and I've enjoyed many countless hours hanging out with him at a small local bar where friends sometimes meet which, ironically, happens to have previously been an old "Pizano" bookie club back in the day. He always manages to bring a smile to my face with his sense of humor and light up any room he's in. Our friendship goes back some twenty plus years and even after long periods of not seeing one another, we don't skip a beat. We laugh, reminisce and take humorous, ball-busting jabs at one another. Back in the day, he was notoriously known as a playboy and occasionally still refers to himself in the third person - his alter-ego, which he has a special name for. I can't share it with you here, but I will tell you it goes something like this, "his first name" - "M F'ing" - "his last name."
But these days he's settled down and he's married with child, to a super-sweet hometown girl. This particular Gemini male friend of mine has restored my faith in men and the relationships between men and women. For as far as I can tell, he's quite loyal to his wife, their child and their marriage, constantly taking them into consideration with most everything he does and talking about them proudly and respectfully. Becoming a husband and a father has brought him much contentment, joy and happiness. No one loves his son more than this man does. He's proof-pudding to me that people really can - and do - change.

The Gemini Males Principle Is That Of Consciousness
Sextrology explains, "Whereas Aries is objective and Taurus is subjective, the sign of Gemini can step to one side and mentally view experience from both angles at once. He takes in impressions and information, at the same time delivering his own messages and agenda. Interaction is what it's all about for Gemini man, a master of commerce, communication and all such exchange. Fittingly his sign's motto is "I Think." Mercury (communication) rules the sign of Gemini and it's quality is mutable (changeable) and dualistic in nature but a synthesizing of both masculine and feminine energy. Sextrology states that this combination of both masculine and feminine energy often adds up to his being AC/DC in his sexuality, too. It is thus fitting that his patron Mercury was called God of the Crossroads, a sort of streetwise deity, metaphorically downtown with the lowdown. In this sprightly, somewhat sneaky god we see the Gemini character, perpetually involved in handshaking, wheely dealy-making, and the like, communing at the most fundamental, intimate level of human interaction. With Gemini males focus being that of a localized nature, he's got a particular penchant for being involved in these matters on a very local level. He's very aware of what's happening in his little local slice of the world.

Gemini Male Has An Inherent Need To Experience "Life In The Hood"
|Life in the hood.|
A Gemini mans Third House concern with the immediate not only manifests as his urge for instant gratification - constant stimulation, information, having to be at the hub of excitement - it also surfaces as an overwhelming need to experience life in the "hood." This small-orbit lifestyle demands being surrounded by a steady troupe of cronies - if not a regular roster of "homies" whose ranks rarely change - not to mention a steady pool of easily accessible female playmates. This is a startling aspect of his sign's correspondence to the age range of 14-21, the perpetual perspective that he views life from no matter what his physical age. No other man smacks more of teen spirit than a Gemini male and likewise, as do men of that age, can be somewhat anxious towards romance and sexuality. Like some school-yard Romeo, he's continually perfecting his spiel, his well-rehearsed sales pitch - engaging in elaborate though ingenious courtship rituals and constantly gauging his prowess against his inner circle of boon companions or "goodfellows."

Gemini Males Represents Biting The Apple In The Garden Of Eden
|This apple is too juicy to pass up, a lifetime of work and toil? No problem! Must. Have. Apple.|
Gemini males quadrant is the First Quadrant, that of self and personal experience. The importance for a Gemini male is one of communing and communicating with small circles of friends and associates. The interchange of information and commercial dealings are paramount. His sign's glyph represents the understanding of duality, opposites and experience. Sextrology states, "Gemini male corresponds to that precise moment in the Bible's Book of Genesis when, biting into the apple, the notion of duality is immediately born. He personifies the knowledge of both good and evil and he is prone to focus on both the "naughty and nice bits" about everyone else. He is pure, unadulterated consciousnesses tuned in and turned up full throttle. He can be the friendliest and the fiercest character on the astrological block, smiling one minute and snarling the next, swinging between extremes so quickly that he perceives them as one big mixed message. Though his exuberance makes him easy to love, he is also one of the most difficult to trust. In a relationship with a Gemini male, the rules change constantly, as freely as the breeze blows. One second balmy, the next kicking up a storm. Gemini male uses every fiber of himself to scramble to survive in this world."
|First you get the money, then you get the power...|
His element is that of air - changing, flexing and blowing freely all the time. His number is 3, that of circumstance. Events happen in three's and all experience contains a beginning, a middle and an end. Gemini signals the presence and ability to maintain a consistent third party perspective in life, which probably explains my Gemini male friends alter-ego name for himself. He is a walking, talking, news bulletin, a human Rolodex with myriad connections, opinions and advice on all subjects. Gemini male psychology is that of an excitement addict and his penchant for deals and risk taking can sometimes lead to underhanded behavior.
|"Feeling Lucky? Heads, or tails?"|
Famous Gemini men include Dean Martin, Tommy Chong, John Wayne, Clint Eastwood, John F. Kennedy, Johnny Depp, Mark Wahlberg, Mike Meyers, Tupak Shakur, Lenny Kravitz, Prince, Paul McCartney, Miles Davis, James Brown, Bob Dylan, Joe Namath, Morgan Freeman, Jacques Cousteau, Jerry Stiller and Vincent Price. Sextrology refers to them as "perpetual swingers and leaders of the pack." Gemini male keywords are community, multiplicity, commerce, urbanity, ingenuity, whimsy, courtship, stimulation, contradiction, exploitation, survival, fellowship, amusement, commotion, trickery, information, cunning and experience.

Gemini Male In Love
A Gemini males main concern is to be the guy with the most going on. His keen antennae and two-way radio mind picks up on a woman's signals and then instantly telegraphs the desired feedback back to her, releasing information tailored to meet with her approval. Gemini male likes to communicate with the opposite sex on many different levels. Body language, eye contact, touching, flirting, posing and making a show. He possess the ability to create an exciting environment around himself and he focuses on the proper setting, one where a woman might be consider being comfortable enough to give herself over to him in. After all, there's no better form of combined communication on an intimate human level - than intercourse itself. This is the stuff that Gemini male lives for - intimate communication on the most basic, primal, human of levels. It doesn't get much more primal than sex.
Gemini male can signal to a woman, the promise of an exciting life and wants to be thought of as fun. That thing which works most for him in capturing the home-girl of his dreams is the appearance of an ever-so-slight aura of danger and dark experiences with life's shadier sides - just enough to impress the ladies. This little devil can easily send shivers up a girls spine and like magic, he'll parlay the slightest possibility of erotic interaction into an ecstatic reality. He comes across as happy and shiny, even though there's a little bit of a snake-in-the-grass effect. With his delightful displays, a woman easily feels no harm in giving herself over to this lovable rogue. Variety is his spice in life and when he's young and single, he'll partake enormously of it, quite possibly showing up with a different "flavor of the week" on his arm at each party he attends. He'll have one to represent each walk of life. With air-headed women in particular, he finds much amusement in messing with their heads, only eventually to extract the sexual act of the same name from them.
Sextrology explains, "Once our little Mercury devil has sexually gone around the world enough times, or at least bedded his way through as many ethnic neighborhoods as his local city will allow, his Third House rule of familiar surroundings will ultimately seek to settle him down into a permanent bond with a home-town lass of his own social species." A Gemini mans turnons may be small women, home girls, red heads, hour glass figures, white panties, long legs, high-class hookers, spanking, high heels, peep shows, swapping, lipstick and nail polish. Gemini male likes his women very feminine in nature and appearance.
|Feminine in nature and appearance. That's right. (Nodding in approval.)|
When a Gemini male makes a permanent pair bond, he can be likened to the magpie bird in that, he mates for life and with a bird of his same feather. She'll usually be a clever partner in crime to him, a Bonnie to his Clyde. But after screwing around with so many air-heads, his permanent princess must be intelligent and he is truly respectful of a woman's mind - at least one who wouldn't fall for his usual tricks, the likes of which work on females that are "none-the-wiser" to him and his devilish ways. Those are the girls he plays with, but the girl he bonds with will be of a different species - one much more like him if not an outright twin to him - and one whose not afraid to call a spade - a spade. He seeks a sort of streetwise nobility in a woman that she gains from living by her own wits, a hearty spirited woman with a folksy sophistication.
|mmmm.. Folksy sophistication, intelligent, streetwise, That's my type.|
When a Gemini man falls in love, he takes on a big brother aspect to his lover, her becoming his little sister, and will forever provide a shoulder to lean on for her. Gemini male has the uncanny ability to make a woman feel like she's known him forever and before you can say two-car garage, she may find herself heaved over his shoulder and the threshold of marriage. Her family becomes his family and there will be a good deal of Sunday dinners. Gemini male prides himself on being part of a hip and happening couple, but even in love, he'll still need space to stroke that inflated ego of his.
|All ready to be tied down but stroke my ego, please.|
Ladies, if you love your Gemini man but you've caught him squeezing the leg of another woman under the table, simply roll your eyes, wink at him and know that your devilish Gemini man is eternally steeped in teenage courtship ritual - but is going home with you.
