This symbol gets it story from the Greek mythological twins, Castor and Pollux. The story goes that their mother, Lyda, was impregnated by both her husband, Tyndarus (King of Sparta) and Zeus (King of Gods). Thus producing one mortal son, Castor, and one immortal son, Pollux. These two were inseparable but had different strengths. They were curious, lively, and loved. When the mortal Castor died, immortal Pollux begged Zeus to be with his brother. Zeus complied by making them into immortal constellations together. Like the story, this sign represents dual personalities that are inseparable and value love of friendship and brotherhood.
Day to Day
The duality experienced by Gemini’s places them on a constant roller coaster. Their highs are sky level and their lows are plunges into the abyss. This sign’s energy circulates in a quick and frenetic way. They have a childish innocence and a desire for others to think they are always happy. Internally, however, this sign can be very conflicted and feel discouraged or moody. This sign is constantly at war with itself. One side seeks to be emotional, to be what others feel it should be, and the other is logical, knowing who and what the Gemini is.
This sign’s open mind allows them to learn quickly to be able to effectively adapt. It also means they have a tendency to jump project to project without actually seeing them to completion. It is not laziness that keeps them from finishing projects, but more that they are easily distracted by a bright new challenge that has grabbed their attention. They will be forever probing people and places in search of more information. Gemini’s are the most emotionally intelligent sign. They want to be able to learn and teach always.
They are expressive and quick witted. Conversely, Gemini’s can also be prone to overthinking to the point that they have no idea where to go next. Their nervous temperament results in quick reactions. This sign would rather be naive than know a sad truth. Do not rain on a Gemini’s parade.
This is a sociable sign that loves to have fun, but then finds itself being serious and restless. They are fascinated by the world around them but always worried there will not be enough time to experience it all. The Twins are extremely independent and cannot be pinned down. They have a surplus of imagination and are never boring. Gemini’s are curious and clever.
Gemini’s are master communicators. They can easily persuade, or manipulate, to get what they want. Their love of communication can also find them collecting and spreading gossip. They will talk and talk, though rarely is it mindless. The Twins are certainly not afraid to speak their mind. Like Leo, this is a sign that loves to debate and does it well, thriving in the spot light and with conversational skills that will move from topic to topic with ease.
Impact of Element, Quality, and Planet
Those born under Gemini seek constant intellectual stimulation. They are constantly looking for the next thing that will engage their brain, whether a new relationship or a new hobby. This sign loves a stimulating debate and exciting friends.
Like its history, a Gemini will always be ready to give their life for a brother or friend. They are generous with friends and will spend a lot of time with each one. They are supremely interested in developing relationships and emotionally in tune with others. Though they can be flighty at times, Gemini’s also give great advice. While they may flit around here and there, they love to return and share all with their friends.
Gemini men are great dates. They will be charming, witty, and funny. Their zest for life can make them a lot of fun, but be cautious. This sign sometimes wants more of a sidekick than to be pinned down. They may be a better fling for that reason.
Gemini women are enchanting, yet casual. Often, their romantic relationships can feel like friendships. The challenge for those seeking a relationship with a Gemini is to nurture and love them, but also provide intellectual stimulation.
This sign will be great at conversations and loves constant variety. They will always see love first through communication and verbals. For a Gemini, words are just as important as the physical side. They are professionals when it comes to witty word plays and dynamic dialogue. They need excitement and passion to keep them intrigued. You will need to be knowledgeable in order to keep their attention. Once they meet the right partner, this sign will always treasure them.
Gemini’s want honesty and loyalty. If their trust is broken, it will not be given again. Remember too that the Gemini tends to be logical more than emotional. It is not that they cannot love, but more that love tends to fall second to logical reasoning. A Gemini is more likely to judge the health of a relationship based on how they think they ‘should’ feel, rather than how they actually feel. They are always out looking for the best of the best and have trouble keeping up a long-term commitment when they feel something better may be waiting just ahead.They are most compatible with Aries, Leo, Libra, and Aquarius.
