Gemini is one of the most fascinating of star signs. Gemini personalities are not easy to characterize due to their mercurial nature, but this article will try to highlight their common characteristics.
This star sign governs those who were born between May 21 and June 22. Each star sign has certain attributes. Gemini has the element of air, the color yellow (or green), and the gem Agate.
Gemini is represented by the twins. This symbolizes their dual nature or split personality in some cases. These individuals tend to have moods that fluctuate widely and rapidly, making them unpredictable at times. At one moment they can be witty, and adaptable and the next they can be glib, capricious and even devious!
Gemini characters are usually intelligent and talented, but are traditionally regarded as the dilettantes of the zodiac. Mention a hobby that they would have never even considered, and they may well try it for themselves… then discard it the very next day! That said, if they can develop discipline and stick at one task then they may achieve great things.
Freedom loving and easily bored, these natives like to live in the now, and can sometimes spend more than they should. Gemini’s tend to be quick learners and good with technology so, if they can apply themselves, they can do very well in studies.
As far as careers are concerned, the Gemini needs many mental challenges to keep their flitting mind on the job. Due to their short attention span, they can become bored all too easily. Further, something that was interesting yesterday, may not be very stimulating today. As a result of this tendency, Gemini people are usually well suited to jobs that are different from one day to the next.
In relationships, Gemini is a social butterfly. These natives tend to have more than one relationship without any definitive depth. Getting a Gemini to commit to you and you only is a tall order. On the plus side, a Gemini can be a lot of fun to be in a relationship with because of their charm.
When it comes to compatibility with other star signs, I would suggest Sagittarius as a good match. This can be a strong attraction as airy Gemini can fan the flames of the Sagittarian fiery energy. However, with all this energy it’s possible they may find themselves pulling in different directions sometimes, and may even blame each other if a certain destination is not reached.
Examples of this pairing include: Angelina Jolie (G) and Brad Pitt (S), Marilyn Monroe (G) and Joe DiMaggio (S)
Humor and witty banter come naturally, although if taken too far Gemini may intimidate others who are slower on the verbal draw. A recurring feature of Gemini is the love of meeting new people and learning from their experience.
Shakespeare himself summed up the Gemini mind thusly:
“Speak the speech, I pray you, as I pronounc’d it to you, trippingly on the tongue; but if you mouth it, as many of our players do, I had as lief the town-crier spoke my lines.”
(Hamlet) Hamlet Act 3, scene 2, 1-4
Some famous celebrities who are Gemini include:
Helena Bonham Carter, Russell Brand, Naomi Campbell, Joan Collins, Courteney Cox and Johnny Depp.
