My birth date is June 10, which makes my astrological sign, Gemini. If your birthday falls between May 21 to June 20, this makes your astrological sign Gemini, as well!
For those of you who may not know this, Gemini’s are mostly known for their astrological symbol, The Twins. The Twins symbolize duality, humanism, versatility and communication. Often, a misconception about Gemini’s is that they are two-faced, crazy, eccentric, out-of-control, a contradiction, and “too much to be around.” Gemini’s get a bad reputation, as a result of astrological stereotypes.
Gemini’s, while they are represented by duality, as a result of their inability, or uncomfortability, with handling consistency and change, because their nature is restless, impulsive, indescive, easily distractable, and always seeking to find new, exciting things to experience. Gemini’s are extremely curious and always craving “new things, feelings, ideas, success, etc.,” even if bad things come from this situation. Our passion to experience life to the fullest, find adventure, and experience life from every perspective possible, is often the hardest part to understand about Geminis.
Gemini’s life color, or special color, is yellow, representing brightness and luminosity. Yellow is also the color associated with novelty.
One thing that many may not know about this astrological sign is that astrologers have defined it as the “quintessentially human sign, for it seems to sum up qualities that are the distinguishing hallmarks of the human race – intelligence (Gemini is an air sign), adaptability (Gemini is a mutable sign), and communicativeness (Gemini is ruled by Mercury)” (Woolfork, 19). While many people like to give Geminis a tough name, they are amusing and exciting to be around, due to their overarching enthusiasm for life, your love for talking to people, your adventurous attitude, your unique, almost absurd, outlook and perspective on life, and your overall energy.
Gemini’s most noteable feature is their ability to communicate with people, which arises from their curiosity and need to ask questions, as well as their love of talking to people. I really LOVE talking to people, this is not all an act! In addition to this, all my questions that seemingly fly out of my mouth are completely real and are all asked because I am truly this curious. Also, asking questions gives me answers to things that I would have otherwise not known of! I love learning new things, no matter what I am learning, I am always game to learn new things. Knowledge is power!!
Engaging in conversation with others is not only exciting, provides information, but allows me an outlet to connect with people and my reality, in a more personal level.
While Gemini’s exude an energetic and exciting energy, on the inside, they are often dying of anxiety and overwhelming energy, all of which they do not know how to effectively allocate. Gemini’s ruling planet is Mercury, which represents quick cleverness and a nervous temperament, While their quick cleverness is visible for all to see, their nervous temperament is something that they work hard to mask, cover, and distract from.
“Gemini rules the nerves, so natives of this sign are often exciteable and high-strong. Anxiety and nervousness literally can make them sick” (173). Relaxation is a term that they are not familiar with, as they are always expending nervous energy out of them and constantly running on their own nerves.
Your high-strung nature and high energy levels are often misunderstood by other people, making it hard at times to form close relationships with others. It often takes a very patient and understanding person to truly want to invest the amount of time and energy it takes for a Gemini to truly let you into their world, and their emotions. But, I promise you that there will never be a dull moment!
Famous stars who were also Gemini, include Marilyn Monroe, John F. Kennedy, Donald Trump, Paul McCartney, and Kanye West.
Yup, the President of the United States, Donald Trump, is a Gemini, as well.
I will let you do whatever you would like with that piece of information.
Give a Gemini a chance and have the ride of your life! They may not be your cup of tea, but if you are looking for a distraction from your problems and current reality, hit your nearest Gemini up.
