The Magical Image of the Third Face of Gemini in Picatrix
In the third face of Gemini ascends a man seeking for Arms, and a fool holding in the right hand a Bird, and in his left a pipe, and they are the significations of forgetfulness, wrath, boldness, jests, scurrility, and unprofitable words.
Picatrix shows ruin arising from futile gestures rather than dealing with the situation.
