Gemini Character From The Movie Troy


This page uses the movie Troy to illustrate character that personify the Gemini sign of the zodiac.

Just for fun and variety in learning more about your Sun Sign, I’m describing Gemini Zodiac Sign using character from the movie Troy.

Gemini  and … Odysseus

“Wily” Odysseus … came up with the idea of the Trojan Horse.
In a scene from the movie, Odysseus watches
as Hector leads his army at daybreak into the Greek camp.

Geminis are more fun than a barrel full of monkeys. Quick witted, sophisticated, sly, humorous and wicked (!), Gemini keeps the conversational ball rolling at all times. A good Gemini hero is Odysseus, played by Sean Bean in Troy. [Sean Bean played Boromir in Lord of the Rings.]

Odysseus has some great Gemini lines:

  • “Your trouble [Achilles] is you don’t fear anyone. Fear … is useful.”
  • “You have your sword. I have my wits. We play with the toys the gods give us.”
  • “War is young men dying and old men talking. You know this. Ignore the politics.”
  • “The men thought we were fighting for Menelaus’ wife. He won’t be needing her now…. To say a dead man is dead is not an insult.”
  • “Then fight for me. My wife will feel much better knowing you’re fighting beside me. I’ll feel much better.”
  • It doesn’t matter if I miss the beginning [of the fight] as long as I’m there at the end.
  • Agamemnon: “Achilles is one man!”
    Odysseus: “Hector is one man! Look what he did to us today!”
    Agamemnon: “Hector fights for his country! Achilles fights only for himself!”
    Odysseus: “I do not care where a man’s allegiance lies as long as he wins battles!”
  • If they ever tell my story, let them say that I walked with giants…. Men rise and fall like the winter wheat, but these names will never die. Let them say I lived in the time of Hector, Tamer of Horses. Let them say I lived in the time of Achilles.

Keyword Gemini qualities I love … innovative, quick witted, clever, mercurial, fascinating, up to date, up to the minute, changeable, quixotic, fashionable, magical.

Keyword Gemini qualities I have trouble with … information overload.
