About Gemini

Element: Air

Mode: Mutable

Ruling Planet: Mercury, the Planet of Communication

Where Youll Find Them: Launching a podcast, couch-surfing around the world, or learning how to code

What They Avoid: Overly emotional situations, routines, clingy people

Gemini is the third sign of the zodiac the sign of the Twins. When youre talking about a Gemini, youre in essence talking about two (or more) people, merged in one. Gemini is all about duality and multiplicity, which is why they’re like a chameleon, always changing. This can be both frustrating and fascinating to outsiders, but to Gemini, its all theyve ever known. Its who they are. Gemini is ruled by Mercury, making them social butterflies and eternally curious students who view the world as their classroom. Gemini loves to read, talk, write and communicate in as many ways as possible, with a huge variety of people and cultures. Not all Geminis are outspoken, but they all have a constant stream of thoughts running through their minds.

For that reason, Gemini can be extremely restless, emotionally, intellectually and physically. Its important for Gemini to have a creative and physical outlet for their outpour of thoughts and ideas. It can be a challenge for Gemini to stick to one profession or job they tend to have more than one job at once or switch into new jobs pretty frequently. Thats because Gemini is the jack-of-all-trades who tends to be good at everything they try. Geminis mission is to stick with something long enough to be better than just goodat it. Their free-spirited nature can make them very hard to tie down, and Geminis seek freedom and space to breathe and create above all else.

As friends, Gemini is the type of person who will introduce you to new ways of life and take you to places youve never been before. Gemini is very open to meeting new people, and this can sometimes make them appear to be superficial or two-faced because they flitter like a butterfly from one social group to another. But for Gemini, variety is the spice of life, and boredom is their ultimate fear. Still, even if Gemini is quite popular, they still can be selective when it comes to whom they view as their best friends. There is an introspective and introverted side to Gemini that they fiercely protect.

Friendship is often Geminis strongest suit, so when it comes to romance and relationships, it takes more effort on their end. Thats because Geminis arent naturally comfortable with vulnerability, emotions or sensitivity. Geminis can be known for being the flirts of the zodiac, playing the field when theyre single (and sometimes even when coupled), and shying away from commitment. But keep in mind that Gemini is the sign of The Twins, meaning that theres another side to them thats not frequently talked about by astrologers. Deep down, Gemini seeks to meet their twin flame and soulmate their other half. Thats why Geminis may flutter around during the earlier parts of their dating life. But once a Gemini falls in love, they do have the ability to remain committed, as long as they dont feel like theyre being played or taken for granted. With Gemini you never know for sure what youre going to get, but its all part of their charm.
