In the movable zodiac Gemini is reckoned as the 3rd sign, but this was instituted when Moses entreated the Hebrews, to realise the Age of Taurus had passed into Aries, it has since passed into Pisces, and now nearing Aquarius, when the complete cycle of the ages renews itself; and Gemini thus becomes the 5th sign again.
In sacred astrology (the immovable zodiac) it is and was always the 5th sign. It thus, constitutes the 5th Element, and is the sign of the Messiah, or Messenger. It is the only sign that can cross the Milky Way, that is travel between Earthly and Heavenly realms. Hence the ability of Mercury to travel back and forth between them bringing, taking messages to and from the gods.
