10 Signs You Are a True Gemini

10 Signs You Are a True Gemini

You're a lover and a fighter.

Geminis are born May 21st to June 20th, and are symbolized by the Twins. Although Greek mythology says the Twins are two brothers, sons of the Queen of Sparta, astrology depicts the twins as an angel and a devil, or, two sides of a face, thus implying a dual or split personality. The Gemini is an air sign, which is connected to intelligence, and ruled by the planet Mercury, which is connected to effective communication.

1. You’re two-faced.

This isn’t necessarily a bad thing! Geminis are inherently two-faced, meaning we are both, as well as either or, an angel and a devil. We can easily choose to be one or the other, if we want, depending on the situation. While we are an angel to some people, we can be quite the devil to others, and we can change in a second’s time. This is why Geminis are known as two-faced: one is as sweet as could be, and the other could eat your soul and not even feel bad about it. Geminis are ruthless, relentless, and wear our hearts on our sleeves. We Geminis are very in touch with our emotions, and aren't afraid to show it.

2. People don’t want to get on your bad side.

You are the queen of the cold shoulder, or, in my family, the Sicilian silent treatment. You have no problem cutting people off if they have wronged you or someone you love.

3. You are fiercely loyal to those you love.

You have no fear in sticking up for your loved ones, and you will surely defend them before you defend yourself from petty gossip. While you let people gossip about you unbothered, the second someone says the wrong thing about your friend, watch out!

4. You take relationships very seriously.

You fully invest your whole heart and soul. While this is great for healthy friendships and relationships, it can harm you when invested in the wrong person. This means us geminis are easily heartbroken, because we never hesitate to give so much to someone who turns out to be not the person we thought they were. We like to see the best in people, and believe that humans are naturally good. Often this comes back and bites us.

5. You are a communication queen.

For this reason, people often come to you for advice, and to mediate tense conversations with others. Although un-apologetically biased, you are great at seeing both sides of a situation and providing a fair middle ground. You also have a propensity to see someone’s true colors upon first impression.

6. You are a social butterfly.

While not always the most likable person in the room, Geminis are sociable people who enjoy good conversation and company, but just as much appreciate some alone time for deep thinking.

7. You seek solace in other people.

Because the Gemini sign is the Twins, we may feel as though we are missing our other half. This makes life a search for someone or something to make us feel whole. We appreciate loving and being loved more than we do being on our own. Although very independent, Geminis would rather have a companion along the way.

8. You overthink… a lot.

Geminis are known as intellectual and clever people, which is good in most cases (you're probably a good student and a good worker) but we have the tendency to overthink. Our minds sometimes work overtime, leaving us feeling stressed about things we can and cannot control in our lives. And Geminis like to be in control.

9. You're not afraid of a good fight.

Geminis are headstrong, and confrontational, because we stand up for what we believe in and what we think is right. We will never back down from a fight that's worth fighting. Geminis thrive on conflict, it keeps life interesting!

10. You hate just as passionately as you love.

You have a burning fire inside of you, and are intrinsically motivated to use it to the best of your advantage. You are fiesty, with a fiery spirit, with the power and the desire to change the world.

It's Time To Thank Your First Roommate

Not the horror story kind of roommate, but the one that was truly awesome.

Nostalgic feelings have recently caused me to reflect back on my freshman year of college. No other year of my life has been filled with more ups and downs, and highs and lows, than freshman year. Throughout all of the madness, one factor remained constant: my roommate. It is time to thank her for everything. These are only a few of the many reasons to do so, and this goes for roommates everywhere.

You have been through all the college "firsts" together.

If you think about it, your roommate was there through all of your first college experiences. The first day of orientation, wishing you luck on the first days of classes, the first night out, etc. That is something that can never be changed. You will always look back and think, "I remember my first day of college with ____."

You were even each other's first real college friend.

You were even each other's first real college friend.

Months before move-in day, you were already planning out what freshman year would be like. Whether you previously knew each other, met on Facebook, or arranged to meet in person before making any decisions, you made your first real college friend during that process.

The transition from high school to college is not easy, but somehow you made it out on the other side.

It is no secret that transitioning from high school to college is difficult. No matter how excited you were to get away from home, reality hit at some point. Although some people are better at adjusting than others, at the times when you were not, your roommate was there to listen. You helped each other out, and made it through together.

Late night talks were never more real.

Remember the first week when we stayed up talking until 2:00 a.m. every night? Late night talks will never be more real than they were freshman year. There was so much to plan for, figure out, and hope for. Your roommate talked, listened, laughed, and cried right there with you until one of you stopped responding because sleep took over.

You saw each other at your absolute lowest.

It was difficult being away from home. It hurt watching relationships end and losing touch with your hometown friends. It was stressful trying to get in the swing of college level classes. Despite all of the above, your roommate saw, listened, and strengthened you.

...but you also saw each other during your highest highs.

After seeing each other during the lows, seeing each other during the highs was such a great feeling. Getting involved on campus, making new friends, and succeeding in classes are only a few of the many ways you have watched each other grow.

There was so much time to bond before the stresses of college would later take over.

Freshman year was not "easy," but looking back on it, it was more manageable than you thought at the time. College only gets busier the more the years go on, which means less free time. Freshman year you went to lunch, dinner, the gym, class, events, and everything else possible together. You had the chance to be each other's go-to before it got tough.

No matter what, you always bounced back to being inseparable.

Phases of not talking or seeing each other because of business and stress would come and go. Even though you physically grew apart, you did not grow apart as friends. When one of you was in a funk, as soon as it was over, you bounced right back. You and your freshman roommate were inseparable.

The "remember that one time, freshman year..." stories never end.

Looking back on freshman year together is one of my favorite times. There are so many stories you have made, which at the time seemed so small, that bring the biggest laughs today. You will always have those stories to share together.

The unspoken rule that no matter how far apart you grow, you are always there for each other.

It is sad to look back and realize everything that has changed since your freshman year days. You started college with a clean slate, and all you really had was each other. Even though you went separate ways, there is an unspoken rule that you are still always there for each other.

Your old dorm room is now filled with two freshmen trying to make it through their first year. They will never know all the memories that you made in that room, and how it used to be your home. You can only hope that they will have the relationship you had together to reflect on in the years to come.

Remaining Optimistic In A Cloudy World Is Difficult, Yet So Imporant

We tend to take the biggest hits at ourselves rather than those who may be slandering us much worse.


We are all constantly going through something and we can hide it all we want, but it's present. There are so many difficulties that life brings to the table and we try to push those away and focus on the things that we can control. With those trials and tribulations, we are presented with challenges that test us on multiple levels. It's so simple to beat yourself up about the things that may be negatively occurring in your life over and over. We tend to take the biggest hits at ourselves rather than those who may be slandering us much worse. We cloud our minds and our bodies with the negativity that we take from the world rather than the great things that we accomplish daily.

As life is difficult and situations may bring out the best and the worst in us, we need to see more of the positivity in the world and allow ourselves to bring that light into the world. At the moment there is so much darkness but the light that we project is so crucial in order to create the world that we aspire to see. It's so simple to think of what's wrong the world and what needs to be changed but it truly does start with the way that we think as well as how we perceive the world ourselves. There is a truth with the reality of the space around us, but there is a perception that comes with it.

Even just changing the way that we think about one thing during the day from negative to positive, we could allow so much more light into our lives. By lightening a perspective or thinking of a way to see something different, a simple decision could leave so much more of a positive impact on someone's life. We are all here for each other at the end of the day, and the more kindness that we let out, the more that we can gain from one another. At a younger age hearing "What you put out into the world is what you receive" was a foreign phrase to me, but over time I realized the importance of the full circle that we live in.

Everything goes around in a circle, relationships, friendships, thoughts, and perspectives. We allow these to frame our thoughts and lives due to the importance that they hold in the world. The more that we care and listen to others, it'll become simpler to adjust our own framework to personalize and emphasize our feelings and what we want to personally put in the world. It's so difficult to see such a negative world and wanting to create a light yet not know how. So remember that it starts with you and everything you say and do will always have the ability to create happiness and kindness around the world. As life gets hard, keep holding on to what you believe in and you'll see that it'll frame the world around you.

"Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see a shadow."
— Helen Keller
