May 21st to June 20th
Heaven forbid your life is ever boring, Gemini! You are a whirling dervish of energy, swirling with interests, the desire to explore the latest best thing, always ready to take on your next project. Or “projects” would be a better description. You are a multi-tasker, and rarely do one thing at a time. In fact, you can scan the internet, text your friends, post on Snap Chat, have a discussion, all the while eating lunch. This is a rare gift!
Curiosity is your calling card. You thrive on excitement and stimulation. Your ruling planet is Mercury—the Messenger of the Gods--representing the mind, the intellect and communication. The ability to communicate, to share your insights, is one of your strongest gifts--whether through writing, teaching, media or art. Your thoughts and opinions and are usually quite well informed, because you know a bit about everything.
You are fun-loving, entertaining and charming, and this puts you on the top of everyone’s guest list. You can be a social butterfly, and if there’s an opportunity to flirt, all the better! You can be mischievous, a bit of a trickster, and love to stir the pot. Indeed your shadow side is engaging and stimulating gossip.
Your symbol is the “Twins”, which is a indication of your often split personality! It can be like you’re going in two directions at once, like the Scarecrow in The Wizard of Oz: “This way is very nice”; “It’s pleasant that way, too”; “Of course, some people do go both ways”! You’re a chameleon, a shape-shifter and can adapt to the zeitgeist of the moment. This has contributed to a reputation as “fickle”, but it’s more that your interests change constantly.
In relationships you are a complicated puzzle. You like the “idea” of being in love, but when it comes to the reality, you can be “squirrely”, i.e. elusive. You can have “grass is always greener” attitude, and often shy away from the c-word: Commitment! At the end of the day, you are happiest out and about in the world, discovering the new and the exciting. And, if a partner can keep up with you, its surely kismet!
Your Sunny Side: Playful, inquisitive, inspirational, communicator, on-trend.
Your Shadow Side: Restless, fickle, gossip, commitment-adverse, bored.
