A crisis can help Aries flex their muscles and channel their bravery. At the same time, if Aries is to be changed for good during a crisis, they will become more community minded.

Once they do, Gemini can be transformed by finding greater spirituality and reverence rather than seeing only the objective facts and data associated with a challenge.
