Sun Signs – Gemini: May 21 – June 20

May 21 – June 20

The glyph for Gemini is indicative of the Roman numeral II and is symbolic of the astrological sign for Gemini, which is twins. The glyph can also be seen as depicting the human lungs–the part of the body that Gemini rules. The duality of the glyph symbolizes the choice between good and evil, positive and negative, male and female.

Gemini is the third sign of the zodiac and is the sign of thought and communication. Their keyword is ?I think.? Geminis are quick-witted, intelligent air signs. Like all air signs they are the communicators of the zodiac. The duality of the twins is reflective in many aspects of the Gemini character and personality as they want more than one of everything. They are extroverts and can be impulsive at times. A positive, masculine sign ruled by the planet Mercury, Geminis are active on both the physical and mental plane. They are a mutable (changeable) sign. Geminis are very popular in social circles and are avid conversationalists. Everyone wants a Gemini at their party. However, a lack of confidence may be camouflaged by witty remarks and sarcasm.

The duality of Gemini’s temperament can lead to conflict in romantic relationships. They bore easily; therefore, a romantic partner has to persistently work at keeping a Gemini interested. They enjoy a partner who speaks his or her mind and is well-read. Gemini’s quick wit is hard to match. However, they do enjoy a challenge. Geminis need a partner who will allow them the freedom they need. Their interests are constantly changing as they need to experience many cultures and social experiences. This does not mean they cannot be a faithful partner, but rather that they need an understanding partner who will allow them to follow their ever-changeable nature.

Geminis are usually slender in build and may be of average height or slightly above. Their arms are often slim and long. They enthusiastically use their hands and arms when speaking. Their general appearance displays their quick movements and unmistakable intelligence. They often appear younger than their years. Geminis need to take time to relax as they are often wound up like a top. They should avoid all forms of caffeine and junk food, as it aggravates their sensitive nervous system.

The sign of the twins is that of communicator and facilitator. Geminis work well as intermediaries. They are constantly seeking new and more interesting projects. Geminis do not relish the position of boss; they happily leave this for Aries or Leo. Geminis excel in many fields including writer, explorer, teacher, preacher, journalist, ad writer, interviewer, and auctioneer.
