Gemini - The Twins

Gemini - The Twins

Gemini - The Twins: May 22 to June 21

The Twins are said to be curious and to enjoy mental exploration. They are almost always at ease in social situations. Geminis are considered by many astrologers as the most flirtatious in the zodiac. They possess a talent for writing and reporting, and to enjoy all forms of 'talk', from gossip to political debate. On the negative, they are reputed to have "butterfly minds" which become easily bored. They may shift their allegiances in a way that lacks commitment or loyalty. They are also said to experience discomfort with the expression of deep emotion. For this reason, though praised for being quick and clever (smart), the Twins are also criticized for being elusive, fickle and ill-at-ease with emotional commitment. The Gemini is always very liable to fall suddenly in (or out) of love. This characteristic persists throughout life and it applies to friendship as well as to those of a deeper nature. Even an elderly Gemini is quite likely to introduce you to 'a very close friend' with whom, in fact, he or she has only recently become acquainted. This can make life rather confusing for others, particularly if they take their Gemini lovers or friends seriously. A Gemini's love-making and expressions of affection are sometimes more ardent than their true feelings. As partners, though, pure Gemini's are reasonably reliable - if their affections stray, it is not for long.

Because its period indicates a change of season, Gemini is known as a mutable sign. For this reason The Twins describes an urge towards change and versatility, and an easy ability to adapt to the demands of the environment.

When The Sun Shines On Gemini
by: AstroKid

[Sun In Gemini]

Gemini is a Mercurial sign and third in the gamut, hence this position gives a blended influence of the Sun, Mercury and the Third House. This favors expression of Mercury for it is the planet which stirs the vocal chords and produces sound in the Taurean larynx.

Sunny Taureans will also favor writing and travel because the mind is brightened by the Sun in Gemini and when it is necessary or expedient to travel you gain thereby physically and mentally.

It gives you a pleasant, affable disposition which makes you generally liked among your associates.
