Gemini (♊) is the third astrological sign in the Zodiac, which spans the Zodiac between the 60th and 89th degree of celestial longitude. In the Tropical zodiac, the Sun transits this area of the zodiac between May 21st to June 20th each year. In Sidereal astrology, the sun currently transits the constellation of Gemini from June 16th to July 15th (approximately). Individuals born during these dates, depending on which system of astrology they subscribe to, may be called Geminians.
The sign is seasonally associated with the transition from spring to summer. Because of its association with a change of season, astrologists describe it as a mutable sign, describing an instinct and impulse towards change and versatility, and an easy ability to adapt to the demands of the environment.
Since Geminis are a mix of the yin and the yang, they are represented perfectly by the Twins. The Gemini-born can easily see both sides of an issue, a wonderfully practical quality. Less practical is the fact that you’re not sure which Twin will show up half the time. Geminis may not know who’s showing up either, which can prompt others to consider them fickle and restless.
Ruled by Mercury, Geminis exhibit a delicious brand of mercurial energy. They are quick-thinking, quick-witted and fast on their feet, much like the messenger god of Roman mythology that rules their sign. Geminis are both curious and clever, which is why they are such a hit at cocktail parties. Although they talk a great game, they also love to listen and learn. With any kind of luck, the Twins will find themselves in interesting company, because if they don’t, they are likely to get bored and start fidgeting. Any social setting is a good one for a Gemini, however, since these folks are charming, congenial and love to share themselves with their friends. While their effusiveness may be misconstrued as scheming by some, Geminis generally have their hearts in the right place.
The great strength of the Gemini-born is in their ability to communicate effectively and to think clearly. Adventures of the mind are what the Twins are all about. They also love to share themselves with their friends, and they make for charming companions.
Does the description fit the Geminian in your life…
