Do you celebrate your birthday between 22nd May to 21st June? Then you were born when the Sun was in Gemini.
When the Sun enters Gemini, it’s as if, suddenly the calm and steady energy of Taurus begins to feel a little bit cold and dry, and life needs a bit of zing and mental stimulation.
In this article we’re going to tell you what you need to know about this fun and loveable sign, even it does have the reputation for being a little bit wicked!
Enter, the Twins
Gemini is symbolised by the celestial twins. In mythology, twins are the same person but in two separate bodies. One twin longs to experience the world and all it has to offer, and the other twin wants to stay behind and not seek such adventure at all. This is of course the basis of our own psychology, but as Gemini, you know how to reconcile the two in life bending ways!
Gemini is ruled by Mercury
And Mercury rules thought, articulation, the voice, and how we make sense of things. If Taurus wants to concentrate on what is right before it, Gemini comes along and says “But you can do this instead!” This makes the Gemini energy perfect for learning and experimenting, but the Gemini can be quite distracting as a result. It is the perfect energy for a salesman!
The Key-phrase for Gemini is “Let’s play!”
Yes, let’s play. After that burning fire of Aries and the extensive earth of Taurus, the Gemini loosens things up and makes us question if there is more to life. Gemini is like the key that turns the lock.
The wisdom of Gemini is not heavy and serious and more towards the comical or superficial, staying well clear of the deep and dark. And let’s face it, we all need a bit of lightness and laughter in our life!
Gemini is the Mutable Air Sign
All Air signs are extroverted and outward going. They concern themselves with the concept of choice and knowledge. The Gemini knowledge is not necessarily shallow, but it’s also not profound. What the Gemini energy really wants to do is reveal the paradoxical in our world and society and share different viewpoints.
Humour is one way the Gemini goes about making a serious point.
Gemini is the last sign of spring
As the last sign of spring, Gemini is great at adapting and transitioning, as we shift into Summer. This shows the playful nature of children and animals who play to learn and grow. Spring certainly does have that Geminian spring and curiosity in it.
Two Famous Gemini people
Considering this is a sign of doubles, we have brought together two famous people who have or had their Sun in Gemini.
Marilyn Monroe is one of the most famous people to have the Sun in Gemini. This energy really comes out in her playful, comedy performances, and sly wit.
Donald Trump better known as the ‘tweeting president’, this former American president really does have a trickster-ish nature, both in thought and words.
