Gemini Characteristics and Personality

(May 21 – June 21)

Element: Air
Mode: Mutable
 
Contrary to Aries’ need for power and Taurus’ need for ‘possessing’ in order to feel safe, Gemini seeks knowledge. People born under the sign of Gemini are the information collectors of the Zodiac. Their mission is to gather as much information as possible and draw rational conclusions; besides, Gemini is considered the most logical of all twelve signs and the one most closely related to the Internet.
In contrast to Virgo people, with whom they share the same ruler (Mercury), Gemineans cannot properly distinguish between useful and useless information; as a result, their brain ends up resembling a hard drive storing lots of unnecessary data that –they think– might come in handy sometime in the future. Of course, this characteristic enables them to perfectly connect diverse situations by combining various pieces of information, and makes them communicative and capable of always remaining open-minded. However, it is also intertwined with another trait that is often ascribed to them, which is immorality, as those with Gemini prominent in their birth chart have an insatiable curiosity to taste all things new and constantly long for fresh experiences, without being able to set limits on this desire.  
Gemini people find it difficult to set long-term goals, as they prefer ‘shorter distances’, and they often experience disappointment because of their tendency to put things aside only shortly after they have first engaged in them (as a result of getting easily bored) or to become involved in many things at the same time, ending up leaving them all unfinished. The typical Gemineans approach most of their affairs with two minds operating simultaneously. Besides, their sign has the symbol of the Twins, which connotes the duality of its nature.

Their greatest positive quality is their flexibility and adaptability to any situation that may arise, which expectedly makes them the most sociable sign of the Zodiac.
