Dates – When are Gemini People Born?

Gemini is the star sign of anyone born between April 20 – May 20. Gemini’s element is Air which makes them witty, intelligent, sociable and great communicators. Being ruled by the planet Mercury reinforces these qualities of intelligence and Gemini’s ability to communicate. This sun sign is often described as ‘mercurial’ because of their flighty and volatile nature and their ever-changing moods. Being a mutable sign makes Gemini flexible, changeable, child-like and open to suggestion.

Temperament – What are the Characteristic Gemini Personality Traits?

Gemini is ruled by the element Air and by the planet Mercury making them mentally and physically active, adaptable, restless, outgoing and versatile. Trying to tie down a Gemini is like trying to catch the wind! Those born under this star sign have excellent communication skills, always ready to argue any point and, more often than not, they will have the last word! The influence of Mercury gives them that nervous energy that makes it difficult to focus on one thing and they tend to zip around, both mentally and physically!

Gemini’s are born with a dread of boredom and anything new – a new job, a new partner, a new idea – will have their interest. However, they are blessed with a sharp mind and a positive outlook and it’s important to use these gifts in order to avoid the restlessness which is part of Gemini’s nature. Love of change can make this sun sign a less than ideal long-term partner – if someone more exciting comes along Gemini will be tempted to taste the forbidden fruit!

The symbol for Gemini is the Twins which indicates a dual personality making them difficult to understand. One minute they are the social butterfly, the life and soul of the party, next minute they are bored. In Tarot, Gemini is represented by The Lovers which reinforces this dual personality making it difficult for Gemini to take decisions or make choices.

Compatibility – What Sun Signs are Most Compatible with Gemini?

It is always easy for those born under the astrological sign of Gemini to attract the attention of the opposite sex. And, if they set their eye on someone, they are not shy in letting them know they would like to take things further! However, your love of the new, your need for change and your inner restlessness can make sustaining a longterm relationship difficult.

Perhaps the love and relationship area is where we best see the Gemini symbol – the Twins – in action. Gemini will be vocal in their declarations of love to their partner but, at the same time, will be on the look-out for their next conquest! Since Gemini is known as the ‘talker’ of the zodiac they are likely to be able to talk themselves in (and out!) of most situations. Gemini is one of the hardest of the star signs to match as they need someone with an equally ‘light’ attitude to life – Aquarius, Libra and Gemini are all good choices.

Work – What is the Best Career Choice for Gemini People?

Gemini’s restless nature comes into play in the work area. Safety, security, regularity are the last things that Gemini wants to hear about and, in fact, jobs that can be described in this way should be avoided at all costs! Gemini loves variety and, some would say, are only interested in anything at a superficial level – they could be called the Jack (or Jill) of all trades, but master on none.

One thing we know for sure is that this zodiac sign love to communicate, so working in the travel industry, the media, sales, marketing, retail or teaching will suit you. Because of Gemini’s love of excitement, working in the world of finance appeals to them and, they are good at making money, but even better at spending it!

If you are working in a job that is not stimulating, then don’t waste another minute – start looking right now and find something that utilizes your communication skills, your quick mind and your boundless energy.

Wellness – What Health Issues do Gemini People Have?

Being a high energy star sign, Gemini is in danger of burning out quickly, so this sun sign needs to get adequate sleep. Equally important to Gemini is fresh air and exercise as this helps to keep both the mind and body balanced and to prevent depression to which Gemini’s are prone.

The key areas of the Gemini body are the shoulders, arms, hands, nervous system and lungs. It is important for anyone born under this zodiac sign to avoid smoky environments and to ensure they eat a healthy diet high in fruit and vegetables and, ideally to avoid dairy products.
