Know any Twins? Then imagine they’re one person and you’ll have an idea of what makes up the personality of a person born under the sign of Gemini (May 22 – June 21). Webster’s Dictionary defines “Mercurial” as “characterized by rapid and unpredictable changeableness of mood.” With Mercury ruling, there’s no better definition of Gemini, either. Gemini encompasses both sides of human nature, the light and the dark, the cheerful and the somber, and this duality appears in every aspect of the life of a Gemini.
In the Zodiac Great Year, the Age of Gemini occurred from about 6450-4300 BCE. It was a time when writing and accounting systems were developed and humans were beginning to trade with one another.
You do not have to have this as your Sun sign to carry the qualities of this energy. If you have an Ascendant in this sign, or heavy placements in your birth chart, this can show up in your life as well. If you have your North Node in this sign, try and bring the positive energy of this sign into your life. Having the South node here means that you need to lean away from the more negative qualities of this energy. Some of those qualities may show up in your personality.
The energy of Gemini
Gemini can change their moods and attitudes as easily as others change their socks. One moment, they are sociable and cheerful; the next, moody and restless. They tend to be frustrated with people who straddle the fence, because they know where they stand at that precise moment. Of course, they may be on the other side of that fence the next day, but that’s a different subject.
A Gemini can–and likely does–handle multiple tasks with ease. They are at least as comfortable multi-tasking than most people are with a single project. In fact, they would likely get bored handling a single task, and would be miserable at rote memorization or dull monotonous chores.
With their gifts for communication and imagination, Geminis are natural storytellers. They have a keen sense of humor, plenty of tact, and a flair for diplomacy. What they don’t have are persistence and patience. If they’re not careful, their tendencies towards moodiness and restlessness can be their undoing.
The easiest way to frustrate a Gemini is to force them to hold to a routine. Like a caged wild animal, they will not handle the situation well at all. Geminis don’t like to be chained to the everyday world; they need to fly and wander and embrace new things wherever possible.
Be wary of a Gemini used car salesman. The smoothest talker of the Zodiac, Gemini could sell ice to Eskimos and leave them thinking they got the better end of the deal.
Boredom is a big issue for Geminis and they can get into trouble looking for some excitement. But they’re very creative and active and should have outlets for all this energy like artistic projects or exercise or vigorous sports like racquetball. Because they’re always looking for new and interesting experiences, they can tend to overindulge in food or drink or night life and club-hopping. Geminis need to remember to pace themselves or they could risk burning themselves out too early in life.
