Gemini, you are the proverbial life of the party! Always clever with words and not afraid to speak your mind, you know exactly how to make people listen. It might even seem like you know everything, however your thoughts are not necessarily deeply rooted, as you tend to be quite superficial and form an opinion on any subject without diving into it and exploring it fully. Your busy mind just can’t be bothered to spend too much time on the fine detail. Duality and conflicting emotions are inherent in your nature and it is no coincidence that your sign is symbolised by twins. You react instantly to anyone and any given situation, which on the positive side makes you adapt easily, but on the negative side others will get confused by your rapid mood swings and you come off as unpredictable and sometimes blatantly hysterical and irritable.
While freedom and change are the two most important things in your life, routine and boredom are your biggest fears. You love to travel, meet new people and explore the world. Your almost desperate need for excitement and variety makes you indecisive, flighty and restless. Besides boredom, you hate nothing more than signs of weakness – not least in yourself. You like to give people the impression that you are always happy, in control and never affected by stress. While you love spending time with friends and family and talk for hours, if someone is having a life crisis and need long-term support, you are not the one to go to. As much as you love giving advice on almost anything, you find it both draining and depressing (not to mention boring!) to listen to the same emotional problems over and over again.
Those born under the sign of Gemini make excellent managers and salespeople. Your very strong communicative skills and ability to think out-of-the-box and be creative are highly appreciated in teamwork situations, but you are likely to succeed as self-employed too.
In a romantic relationship you are quite a handful! In the beginning you are flirtatious, seductive and playful, but in the long run very demanding and challenging. You have a constant need for stimulation and novelty in a relationship and it can be hard for a partner to keep up with your wit and keep you interested. That being said, you are definitely worth fighting for. Once you really open up to someone (which is a rare thing) a relationship with you is very rewarding. You are not overly romantic, but want your partner to be your BFF and you value your friendship higher than anything.
Yoga and breathing exercises are very rewarding to calm your busy mind, body and soul, but you probably prefer some kind of high tempo team sport and it wouldn’t be unlike you to run a marathon and join a new book club the same week.
Good traits: A master of communication and a social butterfly! You have a great sense of humour and love to laugh. Some may find your rational and logical way of thinking cold-hearted, but most people born under the sign of the Gemini have the heart in the right place.
Less good traits: Manipulative, attention seeking and love the sound of your own voice. “What’s in it for me?” seems to be your motto and makes you come off as quite selfish. Your curiosity gets out of hand sometimes and turns into being downright nosy – admit it, you love gossip! You also have a tendency to be superficial and (a little too) quick to judge others. Sometimes it will be worth it to take your time to really get to know someone before you make up your mind about them Gemini.
