It's fun and flirty Gemini season and we've got you covered for all you need to know about the sign of the twins!
DATES: Gemini season typically occurs between May 21st and June 20th
SYMBOL: The twins – Gemini is represented by the constellation known as “the twins” in many different cultures, symbolizing multiplicity and variety.
PLANETS: The planetary ruler of Gemini is Mercury – The planet of communication and how information is processed.
MODALITY: Mutable – The 12 zodiac signs are divided into 3 categories of energy; Initiative (Cardinal), Sustainable (Fixed), and Changeable (Mutable). Mutable signs are flexible and easily adaptable to their surroundings.
DUALITY: Masculine – Gemini is known as a Masculine sign as it is more assertive than receptive in its energy. This is also known as Yang energy (Yin is feminine).
OPPOSITE SIGN: Sagittarius: Both Gemini and Sagittarius are both thinkers and have a thirst for knowledge. Gemini concerns itself more with accumulating information on a wide variety of subjects, specifically more concerned with interactions involving other people, while Sagittarius is the philosopher. Sagittarians are adventurous and fun-loving like Gemini’s, but their wisdom comes more from observation rather than direct personal involvement. Sagittarius is the far travelling truth-seeker where Gemini is the local social butterfly with everyone’s contact info in their phone.
BODY PART: The parts of the body ruled by Gemini are the hands, arms and shoulders. Interestingly enough, Gemini’s usually have fast-typing skills and communicate especially well through writing. This sign is generally good with anything involving the use of their hands.

ELEMENT: Air – Air signs are more intellectual and detached in nature.
MOST COMPATIBLE SIGNS: Aries, Leo, Libra
LEAST COMPATIBLE: Pisces and Virgo
ANIMALS SYMBOLS: Parrots and Butterflies

Gemini’s are known for their quick-mental nature and always seem to know a little bit about everything. This is why it’s very easy for a Gemini to have input in just about any conversation. They’re flirty, fun, and love to seek out new situations that quench their strong thirst for knowledge. Leave it to a Gemini to have all the juicy gossip on everyone in their social circle. They can’t help it, it’s their job to know these things!
The old saying of “curiosity killed the cat” can certainly be applied to these folk. While their desire to know everything can truly help them shine in various situations, their inquisitive nature can sometimes lead them in the wrong direction. Luckily Gemini’s aren’t weighed down very easily, so if they find themselves in a sticky situation they can usually use their wit to get themselves out just as quickly. Gemini’s exude a ton of charm and bright energy; however on the inside they can often feel very restless and anxious, not knowing exactly what other people think of them!
Gemini’s take on life is one of constant playful inquiry. Their interests are vast but because of this they have a tendency to start many projects and not complete them. It’s typical of a Gemini to be really enthusiastic about a new job or venture and then completely lose interest once the novelty wears off! This is why it’s a great idea for them to find jobs that expose them to new things routinely and to find people who will allow them to explore various options without holding them back!
Celebrity Gemini’s and their compatibility!
Marilyn was a timeless beauty with a tragic ending. She was a typical Gemini where she broke a lot of societal standards toward sexuality and she was one of the biggest sex symbols of her time. Marilyn’s Aquarian moon certainly wouldn’t have liked fitting into societal expectations, which also would have given her Gemini sun a more rebellious and eccentric edge. She was married three times, one of which was to the Yankee’s baseball star Joe DiMaggio who’s Sagittarius Sun, Mars and Venus fall into her 4th house of home and family. There was likely a strong pull of familiarity and comfort in Marilyn’s attraction to him, but DiMaggio’s cluster of planets in Sagittarius (known as a Stellium in Astrology) sits in his first house of self. It’s likely that he was a very strong personality that wouldn’t have been agreeable to Monroe’s rebellious and non-conformist disposition. Despite their separation, it was said that the two remained friends after divorce, which isn’t uncommon for Gemini (air) and Sagittarius (fire) because they don’t tend to harbour as much resentment or hard feelings as water signs would.
With his ability to entertain people with word-play through his lyrics and the always entertaining verbal outbursts that seem to come from a place of complete inhibition, it’s no doubt that Kanye is a Gemini. His compatibility with wife, Kim Kardashian is a favourable one as well. Libra’s and Gemini’s get along wonderfully; both social, light-hearted and fun. But more interestingly, despite both Kanye and Kim having a seemingly flamboyant nature, they both possess Piscean moons which are an extremely intuitive, emotional and compassionate placement to have. They certainly do not get enough credit for those aspects of their personalities.
