Gemini (May 21 – June 20) is the third sign of the zodiac. They are a Mutable Air sign ruled by Mercury. Symbolized by “the Twins”, these people are witty, independent, energetic, and sociable. Always looking to learn more and meet new people, communication and diversity are key to Gemini’s happiness. At the same time, balance and moderation are necessary for these people if they are to avoid coming off as superficial in their knowledge. In any case, Geminis are charming personalities that are sure to make the most of any group setting.
Geminis have an energetic, sociable and fun-loving nature - at least when their spiritual centers are balanced. But when a Gemini’s Chakras are out of balance, this spontaneity can turn into restlessness or impulsive behaviors. If you find it hard to relax and often experience anger or anxiety, an imbalance could be the root cause. Through cleansing the aura and re-aligning the Chakras, Howlite offers emotional support and calms your mind. This provides a renewed sense of purpose and patience that will help you to achieve your goals.
Blue Kyanite is an ascendant crystal for Gemini. As a stone for the Throat Chakra and Third Eye, it encourages truthful communication. It’ll also provide clarity when in an argument. Due to a Gemini’s changeable nature, they can bend the truth or even gossip when it suits them. By meditating with this high vibrational crystal, you’ll gain the confidence to speak the truth. This cuts through any superficiality, so you can express your feelings or thoughts honestly.
The colors of Dalmatian Jasper mirror the duality of light and dark that a Gemini often experiences. Getting its name from the dog breed, Dalmatian, it has a playful, loving energy that resonates with a Gemini's personality. If you’re down on your luck or feeling despondent, this crystal’s energy will boost your positivity and inspire motivation to move forward. As Geminis have a tendency to over complicate or get bored easily, Dalmatian Jasper will also balance your yin/yang energy. This will help you to achieve your goals and reignite your energy.
Rutilated Quartz helps Geminis to access their joyful, light-hearted side. It can bring them motivation to do work that they don’t want to do, which is extremely beneficial for Geminis since they easily lose interest in projects. It is an empowering stone that promotes spiritual awakening through emotional healing. With its help, Geminis can understand themselves better and solve problems from a point of view that they wouldn’t normally see.
Strengths & Weaknesses
Strengths – People born with the Sun in Gemini are spirited, fast, adjustable and smart. Their wit and their sense of humor will help them overcome any difficulty life brings their way, while the gift of communication is their biggest asset. Fun and always open to new friends, experiences, and adventures, Gemini have a way of imposing their charisma on everyone around them making things light and carefree.
Weaknesses – The weak point of any Gemini is inconsistency. As an air sign with a mutable quality, these individuals can’t stay in one place for too long, and often ditch people they were close to for years once they rationalize that it is a good choice. Superficial and uncompassionate, they seem distant and uninterested for earthly matters and problems of other people. They need a healthy routine and enough change and excitement to sink into stability and depth of emotion.
Gemini In Relationships
Each Gemini values their social circle greatly and needs to have different friends for different shared activities and conversations in their life. They will easily win your heart with their childish approach to all things in life, and their incredible mind able to create a game out of anything. In time, some of those more serious will consider this a flaw, presuming that they are not serious enough to last in any relationship they find themselves in. Fortunately, this is something a Gemini doesn’t worry about too much, with a godly awareness of the ease of life and new experiences and people that will come to their life when the right time comes. When they have enough shared interests and laughter with someone they find important and someone who understands their mood swings and personality shifts, they will never want to let that person go.
As partners – Gemini aren’t easily kept in one place or with one partner for long. Intellectual stimuli is a necessity in all bonds they form, and they will have a hard time finding any sexual attraction with those that have good looks but don’t have much to say. In order for their relationship to last, their core needs to be understood beyond their multiple personalities shown, and they have to feel motivated and adventurous with the person beside them. They have no reason to settle for less than what makes them happy, but often stay in unhealthy relationships for children, as they become their greatest priority once they enter this world.
As parents – In the role of a parent, a Gemini is as much of a child as their child is. Playing, giggling and treating their offspring as a friend, they are fun, liberal and reasonable parents. Their greatest problem when it comes to parenting is forming a steady intimate bond, and it is not rare for a Gemini to live an adventurous life neglecting physical needs of their child to some point. This is something they do to themselves too, but if they end up nurturing a child from the Earth element, it may present a problem. Curious and open for all human differences, they become parents who are capable to give room for a well-developed personality that can speak their mind with ease.
As children – When they are children, little Gemini can be quite a handful. With their incredible curiosity that is almost impossible to satisfy, and their need for movement, even the most flexible of parents can go crazy chasing them around and giving numerous explanations that don’t seem to stick to the youngster’s mind. They need a lot of practical attention and someone to follow them wherever they go for the biggest part of their early childhood. To keep them safe, they need to be talked to calmly and you will see your little Gemini understands even the most complicated sentences while still too small to speak.
Love And Intimacy
To truly blossom in their love life, Gemini need someone they can explore and meet day after day, while at the same time sharing interests and adventures with this partner. If they are to stay with one person in the long run, they need to be fascinated by their mind but also be able to teach them something. They need their freedom intact and their sense of Self unshaken, for they often have trouble discovering their own core without others making it even harder for them. When they fall in love, they will approach their partner with vigor, humor and an entertaining attitude, and expect to be loved with all their inner differences and challenges. Their sex life will be colored with a lot of words spoken, and from their perspective foreplay is intellectual, not physical.
Innovative, creative and childish, Gemini are the ones to bring new ideas to any team and use communication as a tool to achieve any result you might think of. Their mind is clear, they are rational, and when properly motivated and supported, loyal to the work they do and its practical benefits and financial gain. They need their environment to be open and liberal enough so they can build their own professional world, while at the same time being a part of one team. Using their social contacts can get them far, and they blossom in fields of trade, research or exploration of any kind. Good with words, a Gemini often contemplates on becoming a writer or a journalist somewhere along the way. If properly supported, this is an area they can truly excel in.
Understanding Your Gemini
To truly understand your Gemini, the first thing you need to do is realize they are not superficial as they might seem. Although they often run from pressing issues out of fear from getting too tied up, their philosophy is strong and their mind even stronger. What they truly need is for their loved ones not to put pressure on them in any way, and someone to understand their personality’s core in spite of their changes in attitude. Once they find purpose in things they do daily, they will find inner balance and stick to one cause that truly inspires them.
