What Is A Gemini?

Gemini is the third astrological sign from the zodiac that is a star of people who are born between and including May 21 to June 21. The zodiac sign is represented by twins. People born under this star are affectionate, quick and clever thinkers, social, flexible and curious. They are also known for their moodiness, inconsistency and selfish behavior at times! Overall, the Gemini is a fun person to be around that can have interesting and diverse conversations with you and will keep the party alive. However, they can sometimes be too nosy in your affairs!

The birthstone of the Gemini is Alexandrite however they associate well with Pearl and Citrine too. 

Gemini is ruled by the planet of Mercury which is known for communication. It influences Gemini in terms of thinking; Geminis are quick and clever thinkers who are able to process much information and converse with you efficiently over a number of topics. It hence represents where your tools and techniques lay.

The element of Gemini is that of air! People who possess the element of air are in line with Jungian theory of thinking. They are thinkers who like to stay in their heads and are future oriented. They have much skill when it comes to using their mind processes and they are driven by the thirst for more knowledge hence they seem to be quite inquisitive. Usually Geminis are the ones who can bring different people together due to their thinking skills and finding the common points.

The Personality Of The Twin – Gemini

Now that we have developed an understanding of the star and where it’s roots lie, we will be able to fully comprehend the zodiac sign in terms of its personality traits. Buckle up because in the following session we will look at numerous traits – good and bad – the Gemini has!


Geminis are quite sociable and outgoing! They love to get their noses into different things and will attend various – not to mention diverse – settings that might stimulate different areas of their personality. For example they might be going to their friends place, a party and an important meeting all in one day. So don’t doubt their social skills because they know how to handle different people. 

These individuals are the life of the party or conversation going on and will definitely chip in and maybe one too many times. They have this urge to be a part of everything that is going on in their immediate environment and do not want to miss out on anything. They love meeting new people, interacting and getting to know them and attending social gatherings.


Their ability to do many things at once should not surprise you because they are indeed multitaskers and are pretty good at. They not only manage things mentally but physically together and their energies will not be depleted like yours would.

They have strong mental abilities and hence they can focus on many things at once. They will be setting up your annual school parent teacher meeting all while making sure the decor is done properly, the assignment marks are all stacked up on the teachers’ desks and they won’t mind discussing the latest gossip. They can focus on a lot of things and they don’t mind it one bit.

However, just because they can do it does not mean everyone can but they might expect this! When you are working they might expect you to give them the same attention they give you so don’t get irritated. Just sit them down and explain to them that you can’t simply multitask like they can so once you get done with work then the two of you can go out for lunch!


Ruled by the messenger or planet of communication ‘Mercury’ and the element of air, Geminis are very good when it comes to their intelligence and they are also pretty good at expressing it and their opinions or ideas. Air allows them to have strong mental capabilities that are centered around processes like thinking. Furthermore their ruling planet allows them to express their inner world very well hence not only are they intelligent but they walk the talk! 

Geminis are quick to recognize the patterns in information and they can form relations between differing concepts very easily too; they can process a lot of information quickly and intelligently to find the common threads. Maybe that is why they don’t have an issue talking to different people about different topics!


This comes to them naturally and because of their other traits and behaviors. Geminis are very adaptable maybe because their environment requires it of them; they are always moving between so many different types of social settings and people that they need to keep themselves open to accommodate them all.

Furthermore, their ability to multitask and dynamic thinking skills helps them accept new things in the surroundings. They have to be able to multitask because they are doing different things and different things are done when they are flexible! What we mean to say is that if they were boring people who did the same thing and had very little flexibility in their routine they would not need to multitask or be able to think in diverse manners!

Fun Loving.

Yes Geminis are fun loving. They want to enjoy life and what it has to offer hence they don’t want to miss out on anything that is going on around them. They will attend any social event they can get their hands on and fully blend in! Also, they love to engage in conversation with different people who help them stimulate their thinking but addressing new topics they may not know about.

Geminis are warm, affectionate and friendly individuals which makes sense because their definition of having fun is usually by hanging out with others.

Curious Or Nosy?

They need information to stimulate their mind and sometimes they need a lot otherwise they will get bored. You will notice Geminis are a lot of fun to talk with but sometimes they don’t know where to draw the line; they will ask you all types of questions and questions that you might consider too personal. They might fall upon a conversation and push themself into it when it does not really involve or concern them. Also they might try to find out about you as much as they can by going around and asking your friends or colleagues because they have a craving to know.

All these behaviours would define a Gemini as nosy and not just curious so be careful around them. They might irritate you! Sometimes you have to blunt about what you want to share and what you want to keep a secret!


With all that information you might think you are at an advantage but think again ironically! So much information makes Geminis appear indecisive and hence it becomes difficult for them to make decisions. They are either confused or not sure about what to choose or do so they will need help! Don’t hesitate to offer it and just help them know how to prioritize and filter information.


When you have thinking skills and are fast in your everyday dealings it can make you a bit impulsive and Geminis are pretty impulsive! They will not hesitate to think twice over something and they will be in a hurry to decide on something and get over with it!

If you’re facing this, it may be a good idea to seek the help of a therapist or other mental health professional. You can find a therapist at BetterHelp who can help you learn how to cope and address it.


Their pace and style of thinking makes it difficult for Geminis to stick to one thing and they will want to change what they do from time to time and it’s possible sticking to one thing may bore them. Hence even in matters where commitment and consistency is the thing they might fall back!
