Gemini, The Twins

A Gemini is nothing if not an information fiend, whether for gossip or more intellectual concepts. If you really want to torture a Gemini, let them know that you heard something. Ruled by Mercury, the god of communication and one of the most famous mythological tricksters, Geminis love to talk.

May 21 - June 20

The end of a season always brings a Mutable sign, which facilitates the flow from one state of mind to the next. Flexible, fun, and fast thinking Gemini leads us from the green, grassy fields of spring to the warm beaches of summer.

The sign of duality, communication, and opposing forces, Gemini, is an intellectual Air sign. In true Gemini trickster fashion, it isn't the symbol of the twins that we should meditate too heavily on; rather, it's the space between the twins that's notable. This space allows the vibration of the twins' voices to carry and receive information, one of the most important functions of this sign. A Gemini is nothing if not an information fiend, whether for gossip or more intellectual concepts. If you really want to torture a Gemini, let them know that you heard something. When they ask what it is, say you can't tell them. You will literally ruin their week.

The first of the mutable signs, Gemini studies and questions the lessons learned during the seasons of fiery Aries and luxurious Taurus. It then prepares that learned information for analysis by practical and sharp Earth sign Virgo, which is the next Mutable sign. All the signs are connected, and the Mutable bunch are quite brainy, all thanks to the efforts of Gemini!

Ruled by Mercury, the god of communication and one of the most famous mythological tricksters, Geminis love to talk—and, as anyone who's gotten to know a Gemini can tell you, sometimes they talk so much that they run out of true things to say.

Gemini represents a social time of year. The school year is ending, and warm weather promises that fun is right around the corner: we all feel spontaneous and excited. Gemini is associated with the nervous system, and it rules the hands and lungs, body parts that help us communicate and express ourselves. Yellow is typically attributed to Gemini, which certainly fits its sunny, friendly personality. Gemini's glyph looks like the Roman numeral for two because, as you know, a Gemini thinks there is nothing quite as sad as being lonely. Like its ruling Tarot card, the Lovers, Gemini is as a symbol for opposing forces like light and dark, or true and false, each of which can't exist without the existence of the other.
