The whole tone – In music, a whole-tone scale is a scale in which each note is separated from its neighbors by the interval of a whole tone. In twelve-tone equal temperament, there are only two complementary whole-tone scales, both six-note or hexatonic scales. A single whole tone scale can also be thought of as a “six-tone equal temperament”.
Gemini Asc – 1/3, 2/4, 3/5, 4/6, 5/7, 6/8, 7/9, 8/10, 9/11, 10/12, 11/1, 12/2.
Aquarius Asc – 1/11, 2/12, 3/1, 4/2, 5/3, 6/4, 7/5, 8/6, 9/7, 10/8, 11/9, 12/10.
The whole-tone scale has no leading tone and because all tones are the same distance apart, “no single tone stands out, and the scale creates a blurred, indistinct effect”. This effect is especially emphasized by the fact that triads built on such scale tones are all augmented triads. Indeed, all six tones of a whole-tone scale can be played simply with two augmented triads whose roots are a major second apart. Since they are symmetrical, whole-tone scales do not give a strong impression of the tonic or tonality.
The Whole tone as the name suggests skips 2 semitones which is 60 degrees in the Octave. It symbolizes Gemini and Aquarius as the 1st house for Gemini natives is the 11th house which is 60 degrees apart and for Aquarius natives, the 1st house is the 3rd house. The whole tone forms a double hexagon as Gemini and Aquarius Ascendant energy does touching the Masculine and feminine houses.
If you listen to a whole tone scale, you could listen to the Duality of the music, it goes up and down. For Gemini and Aquarius natives, their dual personality is obvious, as they move from a feminine energy to a Masculine house.
