The characteristics of the Gemini sign
In astrology, people born between May 21 and June 20 are Gemini, that is to say the twins of the zodiac.
Let’s start with some basics: Gemini is the third of the 12 zodiac signs. Gemini show great creative synergy, instantly connecting people with each other.
But what brings this charming and expressive sign to life? Gemini is ruled by the planet Mercury, named after the messenger god. This influence contributes to the spirit of collaboration, ingenuity and sometimes the theatrical side of Gemini.
The sign can also be distracted, overwhelmed by events and subject to great fluctuations between highs and lows.
Gemini is often seen as a two-faced and deceptive sign, fickle and indecisive. But this overly simplistic and, honestly, unfair categorization doesn’t say everything about the characteristics of Gemini. If you’re a full-fledged Gemini, you already know that.
To further clarify the character traits of Gemini, here are the qualities and defects of this sign.
The qualities of Gemini
To start with the strengths, Geminis are exceptionally curious, and very good at verbal communication. They know how to say what they have to say, and they mean what they say. They may change their mind later, but they are very clear communicators. They have a very good sense of humor, and they don’t take themselves too seriously.
Geminis are very lucky. They are always in the right place, at the right time, because they are light on their feet, very adaptable. And the universe responds well to that.
If you put a Gemini in a new situation, they thrive on stimulation and are quick to learn a new skill. There is, however, a caveat. The activity should invigorate both their minds and their hands. They like to be busy, but they need hands-on, applied learning to keep them interested.
We can classify flexibility in the category of qualities of Gemini. They won’t get upset if plans change on a whim. Spontaneity is part of the life force of Gemini. They allow life to unfold before their eyes without the need for a solid plan to follow.
What are the flaws or weaknesses of Gemini?
The area where Geminis tend to have trouble is that they sometimes speak with a lot of authority on topics that can smack of ambiguity, uncertainty, and risk. Because of this difficulty in taking the time to synthesize thoughts and provide measured responses, Geminis can over-commit.
Gemini’s spirit of initiative can sometimes be a weakness. They change values, plans or ideas without taking into account the fact that there are people who are a little more committed and a little more attached to results. And if they don’t communicate the evolution of the change, then they’re going to show a lack of integrity.
Geminis are quick to talk, but when it comes to thinking and making a decision, well, that’s where they struggle. Geminis can have a strong spirit. However, there are many things going on in their minds. If we were to metaphorically dissect their brains, it might reveal a chaotic circus of intertwining thoughts.
Geminis have such a gift for storytelling and take such joy in self-expression that they can sometimes edit parts of a story so as not to tell the full, concise series of events. This can make things confusing when talking to a Gemini, as there are likely multiple sides to the same story.
