The mighty Redwoods, like the famous ones in Northern Cal? They tend to grow in clusters, like a fairy ring, of trees. The root system for the younger Redwoods are shallow and don’t go deep, which belies their ability to grow so tall. Lore passed onto me was that redwood roots are no more than six feet deep. I live in Texas, I’ve seen weeds with deeper roots than that. But the way the redwoods stand so tall? They stand together. That single redwood becomes a ring of three, then six, or more, and these trees all work together with that root system — not a deep foundation — but a wide foundation that depends on the support of the other trees. So the trees are connected and working together as a team. Almost defies physics. With this in mind, what’s the take-away for a (happy birthday to my sister) Gemini? Stand together or fall alone? Sure. “Oh, oh, I got it! I don’t need deep roots?” Yes, as long as there are others there to help support, and it looks like, that roots system is inter-meshed. Gather your people around you, hopefully, metaphorically.
