Gemini - The Twins (Curiosity and Communication)

(Just a note:  not ALL the classic social role models ("archetypes") will fit the sign's characteristics, but these are good examples of people who outwardly express the qualities of the sign.)

(May 21-June 21):
"I Am What I Think About"

The first thing that comes to mind about Gemini is...the mind! These natives are the intellectuals of the zodiac, the curious, inquisitive seekers of knowledge on all levels. And they are not satisfied to learn about it mentally, they must express what they have learned, verbally to others and often at a never-ending pace. A Gemini can be the one who talks your ear off about anything and everything, and makes them seem charming and witty as they do it! Their best skill is to move through ideas and concepts, quickly learning the facts, cataloguing them and hurrying on to find the next bit of mental attraction.

Thus, Gemini activities revolve around the absorption and dispersal of information, and the various facilities that allow human communications. Creative writing and public speaking are natural expressions of the vast pool of ideas that are ready to jump out of a Gemini.

Gemini is the sign of the twins, and the dualistic nature is very important. Gemini's are sometimes called the two-sided personalities of the signs: you almost never know which part of the whole person with whom you are dealing. Because they are so adaptable to see concepts in terms of two sides, they can readily find attraction in more than one relationship or professional activity at a time. This also brings a rebellious nature, almost as if one side of their multi-faceted personality wants to let the other side exercise its right for self-expression.

The Gemini native often speaks or acts against the status quo, indulging in humorous play-acting to give the impression that they are cooperating with authority figures. Gemini makes for a comedian or "love child" approach to serious matters. These people feel they can charm their way with their agile mind and quick words and make themselves appear so innocent, that they would not be considered guilty of any wrong-doings.

Gemini energies are directed through the arms and shoulders, hands, lungs and nervous system. They have the dexterity to use their fingers in nimble and agile ways, and they can be more than willing to take for themselves anything that catches their interest. They can also be found in areas requiring skill and flair with their hands, such as music, where they can play several instruments, or writing, where they allow their thoughts to come into existence as they work on several tasks at once.
