*May 22nd - June 22nd

The Twins * Ruled by Mercury * Air and Mutable Sign
Charming, enigmatic, analytical, highly intelligent, social, and often the coolest person in the room, Gemini is fascinating, curious, and fun. They do not tolerate boredom and are exceptional at finding ways to entertain themselves and others. You can tell a Gemini just about anything without fear of shocking them. If anything, they’ll likely shock you.

What does it mean if your Sun Sign is Gemini?

The Good News: Webster’s Dictionary defines “Mercurial” as “characterized by rapid and unpredictable changeableness of mood.” With Mercury as their ruler, there’s no better definition for Gemini (*May 22nd – June 22nd). This sign encompasses both sides of human nature, the light and the dark, the cheerful and the somber. This duality appears in every aspect of life within a Gemini.

A Gemini can—and likely does—handle multiple tasks with ease. They are more comfortable multitasking than most people are with a single project. In fact, Gemini would likely get bored handling a single task, and would be miserable with repetitive actions or dull monotonous chores. With their gifts for communication and imagination, Geminis are natural storytellers. They have a keen sense of humor, plenty of tact, and a flair for diplomacy. They also have a fantastic and often dark sense of humor. They don’t shy away from difficult conversations about politics, religion, or the like. The more taboo the topic, the better when talking to a Gemini.

Geminis need to fly, wander, whirl, and embrace new things whenever and wherever possible. This is one of the best signs of the zodiac to travel with for these reasons. Gemini will learn all the best things a location has to offer, yet remain spontaneous in exploring them.

The Bad News:  Geminis can change their moods and attitudes as easily as others change their clothes. One moment they are sociable and cheerful. The next, Gemini is moody and restless. They tend to get frustrated with people who straddle the fence because Gemini knows where they stand on important issues. It might take them time to decide which side that is. And of course, they may be on the other side of that fence the next day. But that’s a different subject.

What Geminis lack are persistence and patience. If they’re not careful, Gemini’s tendencies toward moodiness and restlessness can be their undoing. The quickest way to frustrate a Gemini is to force them into a routine. Like a caged wild animal, they will not handle the situation well at all. Geminis do not like to be chained to the everyday world.

Be wary of a Gemini salesperson. As the smoothest talker of the zodiac, Gemini could sell ice to Eskimos and leave them thinking they got the better end of the deal. This sign is exceptional at lying and the consequences of their actions rarely rest heavily on their conscience.

What does it mean if your Rising Sign is Gemini?

You can’t sit still. Think about it—when was the last time you focused on one thing for more than five minutes? Gemini Risings have the gift of gab—your brain moves a mile a minute and you’re eager to suck up as much knowledge as possible. You’re very curious about the world and always ready to share a random fact. There’s restlessness with this Rising Sign, which might cause you to come off as nervous. Exercise is a successful way to mitigate this energy. You’re highly social, flirtatious, impulsive, and notoriously difficult to pin down. It’ll take some real charm and intellect to hold your attention.
