Gemini Zodiac: Personality Traits, Sign and More

Gemini season is from May 21st to June 21st. The Geminis ruling planet is Mercury. Mercury rules over one's mentality and intelligence and gives them an intellectual and curious nature. Geminis often have many hobbies and passions and are usually outgoing, they can talk to anyone as long as they have a common passion. But, Geminis have gained a bad rap for being two-faced. Where did this thought originate from? Let's take a deeper look into this zodiac sign and learn more about its astrological meaning.

Gemini Zodiac Symbol

The Gemini zodiac symbol is the twins. This sign's constellation is located in the northern sky and resembles what people believe to be a set of twins, Pollux and Castor. In Greek mythology, the twins were sons of Queen Leda of Sparta. She was mortal but extremely beautiful, so much so that Zeus transformed himself into a swan and came down from Mount Olympus to lay with her. She also laid with her husband King Tyndareus that evening and Leda became pregnant with four children. These children included Castor and Pollux and their two sisters Helen and Clytemnestra. The girls were believed to be fathered by King Tyndareus and the boys fathered by Zeus. These boys were known to be inseparable and were given the Roman name Gemini.

The Gemini symbol is thought to represent having two sides of personality. This is where the idea that Geminis are two-faced comes from. But, what it really means is that Geminis can see all angles of an idea, so sometimes it's hard to pick sides when you can understand both.

Gemini Zodiac Sign

The Gemini zodiac is an air sign along with Libras and Aquarius. Air signs are great communicators and thinkers. They are also fun, curious, and adventurous. As intellectuals, they are very smart and often become leaders. They don't often cloud their judgment with emotion and make most of their decisions tactically. Although they do have emotions, they don't usually put them forward so some find Geminis to be emotionally unavailable, which is not true. With Geminis, you usually have to earn their trust before they share their deeper motions with you.

Gemini Personality Traits

Because they usually have many passions, Geminis are known to be Jacks of all trades. But, with that saying, it means they're a master at none. They thrive by dipping one toe into each new passion before they move on to the next one. Because of their curious nature, they want to know and try out many different things.

A stereotypical Gemini is positive and upbeat, and they don't know a stranger at a party. They love connecting with other people and can be considered social butterflies. You'll often find them in deeper conversations rather than small talk. They live for learning and understanding people on a deeper level.

Geminis are also known to be charming and witty. Because their brain moves so quickly, they are often quick-witted and enjoy bantering with others. They're usually fun to be around and this trait makes them fun to be around and why many people are initially attracted to Geminis.

Gemini Compatability

Each zodiac sign is typically most compatible with other signs that share the same element, in this case, the air signs; Aquarius and Libra. But, Gemini is also compatible with the fire signs: Aires, Leo, and Sagittarius. For Geminis, it's important that in their relationships they feel like their intellectual side can be fostered, and due to the characteristics of the air and fire signs, these zodiacs offer the best compatibility.

Geminis are seen to be least compatible with Water and Earth signs. Water signs like Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces typically require more emotional connection whereas Geminis don't lean emotionally. Earth signs tend to be more rigid, so an air sign like Gemini may find earth signs to be difficult to deal with.
