Sagittarius Rising/Gemini Sun – The Joyful Communicator

This is an interesting combination, as both are masculine, extravert by nature (meaning they gather energy by being around others), and Mutable by Modality. They also complement each other as they sit directly opposite to one another one the Zodiac wheel. In fact, a Gemini person wishes they could have some of Sagittarius’ traits and vice versa. As a nodal axis, this combination brings much culture and communication to the world as seen in Mark Zuckerberg’s (Facebook founder) birth chart.


When looking at the planets they represent, Mercury (which rules Gemini) is the smallest and fastest planet, while Jupiter (which rules Sagittarius) is the largest planet in the Solar System and moves much slower than Mercury.

In Greek mythology, Zeus (Greek for Jupiter) is the ruler of all the gods while Hermes (Greek for Mercury) is his son. Zeus favored his son Hermes and bestowed special powers unto him where he was extremely fast and could travel anywhere, including among mortals and the Underworld (Hades/Pluto’s lair).

Sagittarius is all about the big picture, luck, prosperity, abundance, joyfulness and good fortune. Gemini is more about the details and really applying the mind to actions. Together, this combination is quite a force to be reckoned with.

How to Recognize Sagittarius Rising/Gemini Sun

This person will often be tall, with strong hips and thighs. If they put on weight, it will be on the lower area of their body. Often, they will have blue or green eyes, with a beautiful face that has sharp features, such as strong cheekbones. They will often smile and be in a good mood, as a Jupiter influence will create this.


Sagittarius Rising/Gemini Sun Career

This person will have a strong affinity towards expressing themselves with the written word, which will be expressed from childhood in the form of short stories and poetry. They will turn this ability, when older, into lyric writing or publishing books and magazines, and being involved in the world of marketing and online media. They may also be involved in the travel and motor industry, or may even be tour guides, pilots, or air stewardesses/stewards, as well as international fashion designers. 

Interestingly, Virgo rules their Midheaven (so they really have a strong Mercurial influence), meaning they are able to perfect whatever they apply themselves to, and are extremely happy to be of great service. They may fall into routine work patterns but will need to break free from that at some point. Taurus rules their 6th House of every day work, so they will be extremely self-sufficient and money-focused. They may concentrate on careers dealing with finance, as well as the acquisition of property, or even singing. They may even become world-renowned chefs! Whatever this person does, they are capable of achieving great things and impacting the world.

Sagittarius Rising/Gemini Sun Health


The nervous system needs to be watched as Mercury rules it. There will be a disposition towards overindulgence – especially in times of stress, so this needs to be watched. As Taurus rules the 6th House of health, throat infections may occur as well as thyroid problems. They will always need to make sure to warm up the neck before exercising and sleep on a comfortable pillow.

Sagittarius Rising/Gemini Sun Love

This combination attracts all the Air and Fire Signs. As Gemini rules the 7th House of love, relationships and marriage, good communication and an intelligent mind is key in the game of attraction. This person will also be attracted to someone who can keep up with the times as far as trends are concerned. Text messaging will also be a big factor in communication.

Of course, Geminis will be a great match, as well as Aquarians and Librans. This person will find Aries exceptionally stimulating and exciting, and will make a great lover. They will also have a lot in common with Sagittarians and will enjoy Leos’ company. Out of all the Fire and Air signs, Leo will bring the biggest opportunity for children.


The Earth and Water Signs don’t match as well, however there are a few exceptions. Pisces is also part of the Mutable Modality and will therefore understand this combination. Also, once upon a time, Jupiter also ruled Pisces before Neptune was discovered in 1846. Virgo is also ruled by Mercury and may find an affinity with this Gemini; however, they are very much about preciseness and details and this may clash with this person’s Sagittarius Rising.

Taurus may be too stubborn for this combination, while Scorpio may be too intense. Cancer may be a good friend but is too emotionally clingy (and I say that with love) for a Sagittarius Rising. However, Capricorn brings a very grounding energy to this combination but may be too serious, judgmental and stern for this combination.

How Sagittarius Rising Rising/Gemini Sun Should Start the Day

Rising signs dictate the beginning of the day, so as a Sagittarius rising, this person needs to feel good in the morning. They need to put on happy music and get in a good mood and meditate with a feeling of gratitude. They should also apply a visualization meditation, as they are able to attract lots of good fortune. They should then indulge in a big and healthy breakfast, do some exercise (concentrating on squats), and start the work day after showering/bathing.

Famous Sagittarius Rising/Gemini Sun People

Academy Award, Golden Globe, and Grammy Award-winning folk-rock singing legend Bob Dylan has this combination. He is a musician, singer-songwriter, poet and author who has had a major influence in music. Friends’ actress Courtney Cox has this combination, as well as the very talented, handsome, and tall Irish actor Liam Neeson, and model/actress Isabella Rossellini, daughter of the late Academy-Award-winning actress Ingrid Bergman.
