Gemini Traits

Gemini is without doubt the communicator of the zodiac. Here is a lively, adaptable and sociable sign given to seeking knowledge and communicating the plethora of information they accumulate. Mercury, a rational, logical and intellectual sign, rules Gemini and imparts these qualities in generous quantities. The typical Gemini moves with speed and can tackle a wide variety of often unrelated tasks with ease, making them something of a Jack-of-all-Trades. There is very little this sign cannot turn their hand to if circumstances dictate the need.

The great strength of the Gemini is their amazing versatility and adaptability. Often Gemini's are seen as inconsistent due to their Mercurial nature, and it is fair to say that they can see both sides of any argument. It is the actual thought process that fuels the Gemini psyche rather than reaching a conclusion, end results mean little to this air sign; they simply enjoy the mental stimulation of the intellectual effort. The Gemini often lives in their head, their mind is always on the go as they pursue new avenues of enquiry, manage their social diary and a whole host of unrelated tasks.

The Gemini is the chameleon of the zodiac, able to quickly adapt to a variety of social environments with very little effort, making them excellent mixers, but sometimes at the expense of being labelled social butterflies. Geminis love to engage people in conversation and often dominate any discussion due to their inquisitive yet highly strung nature. The Gemini is on the go all the time and hates to be tied down or restricted in anyway; theys demand their freedom. This freedom often comes at the expense of stability, if unchecked the Gemini energies can be scattered to the extent that very little is achieved by their intellectual efforts.

Gemini's like to verbalise everything and tend to filter their emotions through their intellectual process, which often leads to them coming across as somewhat aloof or emotionally cold.

The glyph for the Gemini is that of the Roman numeral for 2. This symbolises the duel nature of all Gemini's.

The lessons a Gemini must learn are how to channel their nervous energy with wisdom and discretion and to unite the twin personalities that is contained within them, creating a balanced whole.

Accordingly the Mythology for this sign depicts the struggle of the twins, Cain and Abel, Remus and Romulus, Castor and Pollux. The dark twin for the Gemini represents the part of ourselves that we choose to ignore. When we embrace these qualities we can turn them from destructive qualities to positive attributes and achieve balance.

Crystals and minerals associated with Gemini include agate and mercury.
