3rd Sign of the Zodiac – 3rd House of the Horoscope – Element is Air
Quality is Mutable (flexible) – Ruled by Planet Mercury
GEMINI PERSONALITY TRAITS
- Geminis are natural-born communicators – lively, intelligent and interested in just about everything.
- Variety really is the spice of life for Geminis and they don’t like being pinned down physically, mentally or emotionally. They have to keep moving.
- Geminis come across as Mercurial – quick, clever and eternally young. Their ability to communicate makes whatever they say sound interesting. Other people are keen to listen to their ideas.
- Geminis’ strength lies in their communication skills. However, they tend to skim across the surface of things. They may get the gist of what’s going on, but they don’t always understand the true heart of the matter.
- Money has the power to make life more interesting and Gemini ideas often create financial success.
- Gemini health problems tend to come from the chest area.
GEMINI IN RELATIONSHIPS
ROMANTIC: one-to-one commitment is not something that Geminis find easy because it feels static. If their relationships are to last, they need the time and space to go where they want when they want.
FRIENDSHIP: Geminis make fun companions – they love to chat and gossip.
FAMILY: Geminis are natural brothers and sisters – this is the sign of the twins after all!
PROFESSIONAL: Geminis contribute ideas and communication skills but they can be difficult to pin down.
KEY RELATIONSHIP: Gemini’s key relationship would have to be with someone or something of ongoing interest to them. There may also be a special sibling or someone who takes the role of “twin” in their life.
THE MUTABLE AIR ELEMENT OF GEMINI
The 3 Air Signs Gemini, Libra & Aquarius are bright, intelligent, academic and idealistic and they are natural communicators. They characterise the “human element” of thought. Air Signs prioritise ideas and theories. They tend to analyse rather than feel which can make them seem cool and unimaginative.
The energy of the 4 Mutable Signs Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius & Pisces is flexible which, combined with the inquisitive air energy of GEMINI, makes the 3rd zodiac sign quick to learn and interested in a variety of subjects. Geminis need mental stimulation as they become bored without something to hold their attention. And a bored Gemini can be very mischievous!
Gemini with Fire Signs:
ARIES This pair move at the speed of lightning. Gemini is quite capable of matching Aries zooming pace.
LEO This is a very complimentary combination. Gemini helps obstinate Leo to adapt and Leo stabilises nervy Gemini.
SAGITTARIUS A great journalistic team although these two tend to polarise when it comes to communication. Gemini is good on juicy gossip while Sagittarius seeks a deeper discussion.
Gemini with Earth Signs:
TAURUS This is a Mr & Mrs Jack Spratt (of the nursery rhyme) combo. Gemini can’t be slowed down and Taurus can’t be rushed.
VIRGO They share a love of information but their priorities don’t match. Gemini just wants a quick summary while Virgo needs to ensure all the boxes are ticked.
CAPRICORN This is a great business combo. Gemini inputs the ideas, and Capricorn provides the planning.
Gemini with fellow Air Signs:
GEMINI it’s like looking in a mirror: sometimes you like what you see, sometimes you don’t
LIBRA this is a great PR partnership. Gemini has the gift of the gab and Libra is charm personified but their socialising leaves little time for their relationship.
AQUARIUS this is a great combination for sharing of ideas but could be too cool for sharing of emotions.
Gemini with Water Signs:
CANCER This can work so long as they understand that Gemini talks about feelings and Cancer just feels them.
SCORPIO This is a co-counselling combination. Gemini helps heavy Scorpio to lighten up and Scorpio enables flighty Gemini to explore hidden depths.
PISCES With the combination of Gemini’s winged heels and Pisces’ dolphin flippers it’s unlikely that the feet of this pair will spend much time on the ground!
Note: Your Zodiac Sign refers to which astrological constellation the Sun appeared to be in on the date of your birth. Each sign lasts for about 30 days, starting from around the 21st of each calendar month. If you were born close to the cusp of one sign and the next, you will need to check your year of birth for which date and at what time on that date, the Sun moved signs.
