Gemini is the third sign of the zodiac and the first air sign. Where the first and second signs – Aries and Taurus – have the key phrase “I am” and “I have,” Gemini’s mantra is “I think.” This air sign is ruled by swift-footed Mercury, who can travel anywhere as quickly as thought – which is emblematic of this sign’s quick-wit and mental acumen.

What does it mean to be a Gemini?

Gemini is always curious. With a knack for learning new things and sharing what they pick up on, Geminis make fantastic teachers, writers, and communicators of all kinds, from translators to media professionals. They are also the type that love to talk – when you want to go out for a drink or a coffee to chat or cheer up, Gemini is the one to call.

What is the personality of a Gemini?

Gemini is Latin for ‘twins.’ In the constellation Gemini, the two brightest stars are the mythological half-brothers Castor and Pollux. Geminis are known for their light-hearted, youthful demeanour. Like the mythological twins, they like to have fun together, and even have a reputation for being a bit of a trickster. Think of two siblings joking around together, and you’ve captured the essence of playful Gemini energy.

Who is a Gemini compatible with?

Because this zodiac sign likes to stay on the lighter side of life, Geminis are usually compatible with the other air signs, who also prefer a good deal of freedom and space in a relationship. Geminis also have a lot of fun with fiery Aries and Sagittarius – get these signs together when you want to liven up a party.

Can Geminis be trusted?

Sure, Geminis like to joke around, but that doesn’t mean they can’t be trusted. What some people may misconstrue for disloyalty is Gemini’s amoral streak – where other signs may judge or scorn those who are different or who have an opposing value system, this mutable air sign knows there are good and bad traits in everyone, so they don’t discriminate as easily. Don’t forget, this sign is ruled by Mercury, the messenger of the gods, the only deity who can travel both to Jupiter’s lofty realm and Pluto’s underworld.

Can Geminis fall in love?

While playful Gemini is known for being the flirt of the zodiac, this sign is far from immune to love. When they find someone they can connect with mentally and emotionally – and have fun with – it can be a match made in heaven.
