The Twins themselves are their own sign representatives.

No particular animal appears associated with this sign other than the wolf and its connection with the nurturing of Romulas and Remus.

In Eygpt The Twins were known as The Two Stars and it took its name from the stars Caster and Pollus, the brightest of the constellation, also known as Hercules and Apollo, and Triptolemus and Iasion.

The Egyptians illustrated Gemini by two kids (young goats) rather than the two human figures commonly used.


Gemini Character

Ruled by the quick and lively planet Mercury, the messenger of the gods, and with a masculine (penetrative) nature, Gemini externalises its energy. A mutable (flexible and adaptable) sign, Gemini governs communications, intellectual matters and gossip!

It is an Air (inventive and objective) sign and you, the Gemini, are ingenious, a quick-witted communicator, although often restless, easily bored and can become frustrated by things moving too slowly.

Mercury is the planet of childhood and youth and because of its dual-nature (The Twins) Geminians tend to be elusive, complex and contradictory - on one hand versatile and on the other two-faced and flighty.

The nursery rhyme about the little girl with the little curl in the middle of her forehead springs to mind "And when she was good, she was very very good, and when she was bad she was horrid".

Like children, Geminians are lively and happy if the circumstances are right for you or, on the other hand, egocentric, imaginative and restless.

If things go against you, you sulk like a child. Also like a child, you demand attention, admiration, and the spending on you of time, energy and money, throwing tantrums if you don't get what you want!

Geminians take up new activities enthusiastically but lack application, constantly needing new interests, flitting from project to project as apparently purposelessly as a butterfly from flower to flower.

To Geminians life is a game which must always be full of fresh moves and continuous entertainment, free of labour and routine. Changing track in the middle of the stream is another quirk of your personality, which makes decision making, and sticking to a decision, particularly hard for you.

The lover of ideas but with no need to put them into practicality.

On the other hand your versatility can make you very adaptable, adjusting yourself to control the world around you by means of your inherent ingenuity and cleverness.

Gemini Mind

Most Geminians have keen, intuitive, sometimes brilliant intelligence and love cerebral challenges. But concentration, though intense for a while, does not last.

Mental agility and energy gives you a voracious appetite for knowledge from youth onward, though you dislike the labour of learning. You easily grasp almost everything requiring intelligence and mental dexterity, and are often able to marry manual skills to the qualities of mind.

Your intellect is strongly analytical and sometimes gives you so great an ability to see both side of a question that you vacillate and find it hard to make decisions. But your intelligence may very well be used to control and unify the duality of your nature into a most efficient unit.

If faced with difficulties, you have little determination to worry at a problem until you find a solution - you'd rather pick the brains of others.

In intellectual pursuits, as in other departments of your live, you risk becoming a dilettante, losing yourself in too many projects, which you follow until they become difficult.

Gemini Emotion

In love the Geminian is fickle, not intentionally so but because of the basic inconsistency of your emotional nature, which has an amoral aspect to it.

There is a side to Geminians, which can become deeply involved emotionally and another, which is hostile to sentimentality, which stands back from a romantic situation, laughing at it and the protagonists in it, including yourself, while analysing it intellectually.

Gemini subjects take nothing seriously. So, in love, in spite of your temporary depth of feeling, for the intensity of involvement lasts only while it is new, you are superficial, light-hearted, cool, flirtatious and unimaginative in the understanding of the pain you may give others. You like to look for intrigue, the excitement of the chase, but once you have caught the prey, you lose interest and look around for the next creature to pursue.

In less serious situation you make witty, entertaining companions, good acquaintances rather than friends.

Even at your worst you are never dull - there is usually playfulness below the surface and you can make brilliant conversationalist - but you can also be quarrelsome, a prattler, boaster, liar and cheat!

Gemini Body & Health

The typical Geminian is tall and lanky, with a lean build and has a smooth oval face, arched eyebrows over enquiring eyes, a thin nose and high cheekbones.

As Gemini rules the hands and arms, extensive gestures with these when you speak (which you are nearly always doing!) are apparent.

Gemini rules the hands and arms, ears, chest and lungs, thymus gland and upper ribs, so you need to be wary of injury or infection in these areas and should resist the temptation to smoke.

Geminians need to beware diseases and accidents associated with the upper part of the body as well as nervous and pulmonary disorders such as catarrh and bronchitis.

Your mercurial nature may also affect your constitution, which is not strong, if it is put under strain. You are prone to taking unnecessary risks and wind up harming yourself or others in the process. Geminians are subject to mental distraction and hovering between alternatives, or attempting to pursue mutually conflicting goals. Pursuing pleasure in itself too vigorously can qualify as risk taking!

Gemini rules hands and arms with influence on the chest and lungs. It also tends to rule the nervous system and, with the wrong aspects, Gemini may well suffer nervous exhaustion or even breakdown. You can often tell a Gemini by their gestures, flicks of the wrist apart from the energy displayed by them as they flit from one project to the next.

The Gemini build tends to the tall and thin but often their most distinctive feature is a piercing gaze that lets the power of their intellect shine through the windows of the soul.

Apart from nervous tensions, Gemini should beware repetitive strain injuries and carpal tunnel syndrome - especially when using a computer!

Gemini Career & Jobs

Geminians should keep clear of any job which means working in one environment or work that is tedious and repetitive. In business any work which combines quick-wittedness with a change of surroundings will suit you.

Career suggestions include:

travelling salesman, journalist, broadcaster, commentator, teacher, lecturer, writer, navigator, lawyer, debater, diplomat, travel agent, preacher.
