I am not a fan of the zodiac sign telling me my future or how I should let something change me today. However, recently people would ask what my sign was and my response was “Gemini”, and their faces would turn up like they saw a ghost or I was part of the Untouchables.
“Oh wow, so that means I have to deal with two of you.”
“Oh no, I have to be careful with them Geminis.”
“Well that makes it so much worse.”
What does that even mean?! I was baffled by their statements, because I really wanted to know what it was about Geminis that make us so difficult and challenging to deal with. So, I did my research.
According to Astrology-zodiac-signs.com, Geminis are the third astrological sign. It is ruled by Mercury, the planet that represents communication, writing, and movement. People born under this Sun sign often have a feeling that their other half is missing, so they are forever seeking new friends, mentors, colleagues and people to talk to. Geminis are people whose birthday fall between May 21 to June 21.
Geminis are said to have a dual nature, as symbolized by twins. This duality also represents exchange and interaction. The sign of Gemini is closely associated with the exchange of ideas, communication, and trade.
After reading this, oddly enough, I found some of these statements to be true. I, along with others, can contest to the fact that I have two personalities. One moment, I am very nice and the next moment I don’t want to be bothered by anyone. And I mean anyone. I don’t know why this happens, and I am not bipolar, but that’s just how I am.
Another aspect that I find very true and relatable is the fact that Geminis’ minds are constantly working. I am always thinking about something in every circumstance or aspect. I don’t know why I do this, but it happens. Sometimes me thinking about a billion things is the reason why I get quiet. I am trying to understand everything that is going on in my mind.
Other things that I have read about Geminis are that we get bored easily, so it is hard to keep our attention (true). We have high standards; yes, I am picky when it comes to certain, well many things, so it is very hard to please me. Also, apparently, we are very good at education ourselves on different topics, we always have something to talk about, and we are a pro at finding out anything…anything.
One trait of being a Gemini that I personally relate to is that Geminis love their freedom. I can attest to this, because I love, love, love, being by myself and having the will to do whatever I want. Geminis in love don’t want to be with someone who smothers them and wants them all to their self. They want to be able to be in a relationship and still have the freedom to do whatever they please. Don't try to control us, or force us to do something, because the outcome will not be pretty.
I guess I am a true Gemini, because some of these things are true for me. Now I understand why people are frighten by the idea of a Gemini in their presence. It may be challenging and scary to deal with, but you’ll be okay.
Another fun fact: Gemini is the most difficult zodiac to understand.
