What Are People Born under the Sign of Gemini like?
Gemini, the Twins is the dualistic, chatty sign that is always current and up-to-date in trends, fashion and media. The third sign of the zodiac, Gemini is witty, bright and often restless, needing constant mental stimulation, variety, space and freedom.
A Gemini mind never stops, causing a lot of nervousness. Manic, entertaining and easily bored, Gemini loves to talk and network … the original social butterfly. They need constant change of scenery, otherwise things become way too dull for Gemini, as they lose interest very quickly.
The symbol that represents Gemini is The Twins, which explains the duality in their natural temperament. Duality is the most famous trait of Gemini, desiring more than one of everything … even lovers at times.
Living in the head, rather than the realm of emotions, Gemini has a need for stimulation of the mind. They have knowledge about many subjects, yet it is said that they know little about any one thing. They rarely dwell long in any one subject, with a deep desire to know everything and everyone. They are natural writers, newscaster, journalists, media professionals and speakers. Giving a spin to a story is one thing that Gemini does best.
The curiosity of a young mind often describes the temperament of Gemini. Brimming with new ideas, clever with words, multi-sided, skilful at handling others and quick in thought, Gemini is not a sign that sits back and watches life happen. Rather Gemini is curious about everything and must be a part of the passing scene.
The great strength of Gemini is their ability to communicate effectively and to think clearly. Adventures of the mind are what the Twins are all about. They also love to share themselves with their friends, and they make for charming companions. Gemini uses intelligence and communication to bridge any gaps or dissonance that may exist in life. They are great at negotiating and using any new technology that allows for communication like texting, emails, etc.
Gemini is a curious sign, with a natural ability to share many ideas with others. Adaptable, affectionate and kind, Gemini loves to be around people and they can be very persuasive and charming. People love to be around them because they can be so interesting and amusing.
Often contrary because of their dualistic nature, Gemini has a way of seeing many sides of a situation. A marked inconsistency in their behavior sets them apart from others. Often one day you can spot them feeling passionate about a subject, yet the next you day holding an opposing view with a vengeance. This often causes a Gemini a few raised eyebrows as well as a reputation as being a bit untrustworthy.
It is all in good Gemini fun, however, lacking a deeper motive other than a Gemini acting spontaneously and sharing what they know with those around them. Gemini lives for the moment and when sharing their opinions, they are in the moment as well. A Gemini will change with their surroundings, like a chameleon. Pay attention and you will begin to see this.
Gemini is a rapidly changeable sign that is capable of handling many things simultaneously. If you give them a list of chores for the day, chances are they will have it finished in an hour. For this reason they can grow tired quickly. Proper rest is important otherwise they can become very moody and fatigued.
Ruled by Mercury, the god of communication, Geminis are quick-thinking, quick-witted and fast on their feet much like the messenger god of Roman mythology. If you need help with a device of communication, spark up a conversation by asking Gemini. This tech-savvy sign will appreciate that you noticed that they are the one for the job.
Negative Personality Traits
Gemini, at times, can become uncertain of the self, because they are so multi-sided. They need to withdraw at times because of their overflowing energies. Down-time is important for the Gemini, as it gives them a place to recharge their battery … they will be buzzing around again in no time.
A darker side of Gemini reveals a superficial nature. This superficiality is because Gemini is so quick to grasp an idea or size-up a situation and in doing so, they tend to skim the surface, not really bothering to explore any depth. They are frequently inconsistent and change their minds often, scattering energy in too many places at once.
They are known to be quite nervous, actually most of the energy that they have is nervous energy. High-strung and at times hyper to a fault, Gemini often tires quickly and is prone to bouts of restlessness, insomnia or exhaustion.
They have extremely short attention spans that leave a trail of unfinished tasks. It is rare for them to explore much depth in anything. Although a quick learner, Gemini lacks the discipline necessary to see things through to the end, especially with educational goals.
Gemini is also known to be very stinging in their speech and critical to a fault. This sharp-tongued critique can prove damaging to the sensitive souls among us. However, if you should be one of these sensitive souls hurt by their words, please note that the harsh words of a Gemini are not coming from a deep place with much intention, rather a more superficial lack of understanding.
The Amorous Nature of a Gemini
In love, Gemini will not be quick to commit, as this means being tied-down and losing much needed freedom. This ever changing sign will eventually be ready to commit and settle down though, if the right person comes along. However, Gemini is known to desire more than one of everything and love is no exception.
A Gemini is multi-sided, and getting to know them will take time. Underneath the bewildering variety of masks that a Gemini so pleasantly wears is a solid, enduring person whose true self will will emerge eventually in love.
Once you win their heart, expect life to be an ever changing world of experiences. Because Gemini’s love to travel, a partner who also shares this interest will suit them well. If they trust you, there is little they will not do for you … eventually revealing a deeper nature, exposing the sensitive underbelly that Gemini so easily detaches from.
They are often fickle in love, simple because their are so many angles of life to experience. Fluttering from one thing to another may eventually cause Gemini to feel as though something in life is missing … such as integrity, depth, harmony and centeredness. Although finding true love may frighten a Gemini, and the fear of emotional intimacy may keep them away for awhile, once they decide to be faithful to someone who they love, life will take on a new experience, an added dimension … which will delight and mentally entertain the Gemini beyond measure.
A Gemini can be very loyal, especially when they share many new experiences with their lover and have a lot of fun together. Until, Gemini has decided to commit though, they can be quite the infidel. Often you will find a Gemini in love with two people at the same time … each of equal importance and value to the Gemini. They have no problem handling multiple lovers at the same time … although their lovers most likely will.
Gemini can quickly cast an enchanting spell, over an entire room of people, as well as a lover. The emotionally involved side of Gemini is slow to reveal itself, although they will easily analyze what emotions should feel like. They are naturally flirtatious, especially when single and have a way with words that arouses all sorts of mystery.
Gemini is known to always be up-to-date in all areas, acting young and dressing young. In fact, this social butterfly often does not seem to age … and sometimes grows more youthful with the passing years. They love to keep things active in a relationship. Gemini tends to lose interest just as easily as they do in other areas of life, so remember when it comes to Gemini, variety is the spice of life. They are very charming and can easily charm the socks … or more … right off the object of their desire. They love a partner who is as sexually explorative as they are …
Being in a Relationship with a Gemini
If you fall in love with a Gemini, expect adventure. This adaptable, changeable and flexible sign will join you in pretty much anything that you would like to do, especially if it is new. They are fun to simply be around, with so much to share and talk about.
If you attend a party with a Gemini, expect to see this extrovert in action … and be prepared to meet lots of people. By the time the party is over, you will know everyone and they will know you … so dress to impress or at least to be comfortable, but remember, Gemini tends to be a bit on the superficial side … your best smile, coupled with comfortable and nice attire will go far.
A Gemini is naturally comfortable in social situations. They can talk to just about anyone with grace and ease … moving from group to group, briefly sipping in the nectar of each engagement and sharing in conversation with everyone. Gemini’s comfort among crowds radiates outward … you will feel it, as it acts like a compass for Gemini who feels out the energies in a room.
Never give them reason to suspect you are playing fast and loose with them, otherwise their dualistic side … their twin, will come forth to set things right. Trust in them, and they will trust in you … it is really that simple.
Although you find that a Gemini is often in a cheerful disposition, going out of their way to be polite and social, they have a contradictory nature, because of their natural dualism. They need down time to withdraw and recharge.
Erotic talk is a huge turn-on for Gemini … sexual innuendos and pillow talk. Although emotional intimacy and physical intimacy are important to a Gemini, it is intellectual connection with a person that they really love. They value someone with a sharp intellect and a large vocabulary. Impress them with your wit and poetic expression of love.
