Gemini is the third astrological sign in the zodiac belt after Aries and Taurus. A person who is born between the dates 21st May to 20th June in any year is said to be born under the sign of Gemini.
The Elements of the Gemini Sun Sign
The Gemini sun sign belongs to the air element. The other two sun signs which belong to the air element are Libra and Aquarius. It is said that just like air, these sun signs need to feel free. This means that most Geminis may have a problem with fitting into the regular order of their surroundings. Instead, they like to do things of their own accord. They want to follow their bright ideas and not succumb to other’s idea of life.
It is ruled by the planet Mercury, which is the planet for communication, writing and all aspects of the mind. The lucky numbers for this sun sign are 5,7, 14 and 23. Light green and yellow colours are said to be lucky colours for a Gemini. The people born under this sign are generally said to be compatible with other air signs – Libra and Aquarius.
The Key Characteristics of People Born Under the Gemini Sign
Gemini sun sign represents all aspects of the mind. They are known to be thoughtful and serious and at the same time, they can surprise you with their ability to socialise and communicate. They are always curious, fascinated with the world and want to experience it. Since their mind is open to communication and experiences, they do well in team sports and business. They are also versatile and inquisitive by nature.
Often caring and gentle, Geminis are adaptable and learn new things quickly. They like to exchange ideas and therefore are inspiring. They need passion and inspiration in their life. Craving for new experiences, they are never boring as they are always willing to try new things. They are a mix of both yin and yang (male and female) energies and therefore, they can see both sides of an issue correctly. This makes them practical. Quick-witted and fast on their feet, Geminis have a mercurial energy about them which gives them the ability to multi-task.
Geminis have a mutable quality about them. This quality can make them moody. They seem to change their opinions and thoughts on a topic easily. While adaptable and curious, this quality can act as a negative barrier to their growth.
The Gemini Man
The Gemini man is clever and quick-witted. He is charming and full of good humour. His friendly demeanour and communicative nature make him appear casual at times. However, he is intellectual and curious. He likes to make friends and learn from people. This makes him fun to be with.
On the negative side, a Gemini man can be quite complex. His multiplicity of thoughts and ideas can confuse other people and make them see him as a superficial person. Due to the mental ability to multi-task, he may also lose touch with his emotions and appear hard-hearted. This approach of thinking a lot and feeling less tends to affect his life negatively at times.
The Gemini Woman
The Gemini woman likes to communicate and wants to be heard. She likes to talk and laugh, and her company is enjoyed by people. Naturally, she has many friends. She is adaptable just like her male counterpart, however, she would not want to change without reason. She is feminine but not all the time and does not want to be protected or taken care of, in the conventional sense. She enjoys sports and adventurous experiences.
Although caring and big-hearted, a Gemini woman can be unpredictable. Her need for frequent change will make her get bored when life gets repetitive.
Possible Health Issues for the Gemini Sign
The people under the Gemini sun sign are prone to mental health and exhaustion issues. This is because their mind is always overworking. Since they are fast on their feet and really quick, they can also face anxiety, insomnia or burn out. Hence, it is important for them to sleep well, eat properly and take care of themselves. As restless as they are, their bodies need rest from time to time, due to their lifestyle. It is important for them to exercise.
