Gemini is the third Sign of the Zodiac, and those born under this Sign will be quick to tell you all about it. That's because they love to talk! It's not just idle chatter with these folks, either. The driving force behind a Gemini's conversation is their mind. The Gemini - born are intellectually inclined, forever probing people and places in search of information. The more information a Gemini collects, the better. Sharing that information later on with those they love is also a lot of fun, for Geminis are supremely interested in developing their relationships. Dalliances with these folks are always enjoyable, since Geminis are bright, quick - witted and the proverbial life of the party. Even though their intellectual minds can rationalize forever and a day, Geminis also have a surplus of imagination waiting to be tapped. Can a Gemini be boring? Never!
Since Geminis are a mix of the yin and the yang, they are represented perfectly by the Twins. The Gemini - born can easily see both sides of an issue, a wonderfully practical quality. Less practical is the fact that you're not sure which Twin will show up half the time. Geminis may not know who's showing up either, which can prompt others to consider them fickle and restless.
They can be wishy - washy, too, changing their mood on a simple whim. It's this characteristic which readily suggests the Mutable Quality assigned to this Sign. Mutable folks are flexible and go with the flow. Further, the Twins are adaptable and dexterous and can tackle many things at once. It's a good thing, too, when you consider their myriad interests. The downside of such a curious mind, however, can be a lack of follow - through. How much can any one person do, anyway?
The Element of Air is attached to the Signs Gemini, Libra and Aquarius. It also rules the Third, Seventh and Eleventh Houses. It is rarefied air which usually surrounds those graced by this Element, as this is the marker of the intellectual. Airy people are smart thinkers and handle abstract reasoning well. They love to analyze, synthesize and probe. Do you have a dilemma? Hand it over to an Air Sign and watch them go to work.
Air Signs are also about communication. These individuals want to get the word out, and it's not likely to be fluff. They are alert, curious and perceptive. The world as seen by an Air Sign will be an interesting one, as their analysis and subsequent explanation (hopefully in terms we can understand) will indicate. Those influenced by Air are inventive and clever. They see all sides of the equation and are able to glean the best approach. Balance is important to these airy folk.
So, are Air Signers fresh as a summer breeze or howling like the wind? Probably both, depending on when you catch them. While these folks are often cool, calm and collected, they can turn cold if their equilibrium is upset. A word to the wise: there's little upside in baiting an Air Sign.
Another plus with Air is that it manifests itself in a most humane way. Those influenced by Air can truly wear another's shoes, as it were. They are objective, cooperative and really want to help make a better world. There's no prejudice with these folks, just a bright and shiny idealism which can accomplish much.
Air Signs are communicative, intellectual, clever and fair. They can blow hot and cold, though, so beware of a chilly draft!
A Mutable Quality is attached to the Signs Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces. The Mutable Houses are the Third, Sixth, Ninth and Twelfth; if a horoscope shows a preponderance of Planets in these Houses, its energy is weighted toward mutability.
Mutable Signs know how to go with the flow. They are adaptable and flexible and can change their form of expression to whatever a situation requires. Standing their ground is of little import to Mutable folks. These people would much rather conform to the norm, so long as their doing so will help the greater good. Luckily, Mutable individuals are versatile and find it quite easy to change. Consider them the chameleons of the Zodiac, since they can take on varied personae.
Mutable people are blessed with a tremendous resourcefulness. Talk about making lemonade out of lemons! They know how to squeeze that last drop of juice and make things better in the process. Those influenced by a Mutable Quality in their horoscope also enjoy learning, play fair and are diplomatic and well - liked by others. To their further credit, they are sharp, sympathetic and can see (via a sixth sense?) the essential elements of a situation. At times, however, their desire to please everyone can get them into hot water. They may come across as wishy - washy, inconsistent and downright duplicitous. All this in the name of aiming to please!
The beauty of mutability is that those possessing it are flexible, versatile and highly resourceful. These folks are quick to help others and are selfless in the process. While they may occasionally stretch themselves to the breaking point, they know how to bounce back.
The Third House
House of Communication
The Third House is commonly referred to as the House of Communication. In this House, much of the communication is going on between the individual and those he or she holds close: brothers and sisters, as well as neighbors. While communication here can be both written and verbal, it also has a conscious quality to it. Think about kindred spirits and mental connections. This serves to highlight the role of intelligence within the Third House.
Intelligence, as viewed in this realm, is the analytical ability one possesses within his or her environment, specifically a basic grasp of things and a practical sensibility. We use this intelligence to help us work effectively within our world and with those in it. The Third House reminds us that it's okay to use our conscious skills, as well as a more reflective intelligence, in order to make our way. A symbiotic relationship with those we hold close is also part of the plan. Let's not forget that our minds are powerful, quick and dexterous. Some things will be well - thought out, others nearly automatic. Maximizing our sum potential is the key.
Early education, effectively teaching us how to think and communicate, is also covered by the Third House, as are short trips. Again, the proximate nature of travel speaks to the intimate nature of the Third House: those we know well, in our environment, keeping that environment tight.
Harnessing our intelligence and sharing it effectively with others is the essence of the Third House. How do we best state our case with others, often those we love the most? Will our actions be true to our environment, and our planet, for all time? This brings to the fore emerging forms of intelligence - gathering, such as computers. Will they make or break communication as we know it? The questions posed by the Third House can be answered by listening to that House: think, process, share.
The Third House is ruled by the Sign Gemini and the Planet Mercury.
Mercury: Planet of Communication
Mercury, much like the winged messenger of the gods, comes in on feather - light wings and commands us to speak. Communication, intellect and awareness are all within Mercury's domain, as are logic and reasoning, our manner of thinking, and how we create and express our thought processes.
A mercurial nature brings to mind restlessness and motion. Rat - a - tat - tat -- things happen fast here. Mercury is about a quick wit, quick thinking, possibilities, opinions, reasoning and the ability to rationalize things. Mercurial energy can be good or bad, but it will certainly be energizing! This Planet also prompts us to move from one thing to the next and to get answers on both a physical and psychological level. Further, Mercury's energy is both dexterous and perceptive.
Mercury is about short trips: a visit to a neighbor or a friend across town, the workaday commute, a weekend getaway. Siblings, and transportation in general, are also within Mercury's realm.
Speaking, writing, books, online communications and learning are all within Mercury's domain. This Planet implores us to express ourselves often -- and well. When Mercury goes retrograde (the appearance of traveling backward), however, our communications will be challenged.
Mercury is never more than 28 degrees from the Sun; it takes about 88 days to complete its orbit of the Sun. It is neither masculine nor feminine energy and assumes the gender of the Sign it is in. It rules both Gemini and Virgo and the Third and Sixth Houses.
Gemini Beauty Profile
As a Gemini, you may get that tired, old split - personality tag -- but you're not internally conflicted, Gemini, you're just restless and very often brilliant! This Mutable Air Sign, blessed with all the wit and charm you could need to make it through life on guile alone, does not much interest itself with the day - to - day trappings of a beauty routine. You've got more important things on your mind -- be it world peace, spiritual fulfillment or planning the perfect vacation for your family.
It's your stimulating mind, your expressive hands and that ever - talkative mouth of yours that garner all of the affectionate attention -- people can't help but look at your lovely hands as you gesticulate and make yet another insightful comment. Even though you may chew your nails down to the quick in one of your frequent fits of nervous energy, you keep any flaws hidden well with vibrant nail colors and frequent manicures. If they're not watching your hands, others will unfailingly be watching your mouth for the next witticism -- any lip color had better have staying power for the likes of you!
But it's what goes on in your turbo - powered brain that wins the most admiration; calm that mind down with a lavender - tinged perfume and make - up in shades of pinks and light blues. You gravitate to the new and the progressive, and you're not afraid of color. Your beauty comes from your animated intellect, your zest for interaction and your flexible attitude. By not taking yourself too seriously, you allow others to see the real you -- not a cosmetic facade.
Gemini Career Profile
What you have in Gemini is The Great Communicator and The Great Facilitator all rolled into one -- but wait, they're two. Twins, right? Where Gemini is concerned, that means that they can talk twice as fast, twice as much and come up with enough new (and good) ideas to be considered the idea factory at any firm. Possessed of a restless and quick mind, the Twins are constantly moving from one project to the next, so an aide de camp is a good idea -- if they can keep up!
Geminis work well as an intermediary or go - between, since they love to talk. If someone needs access, a Gemini is bound to provide it, as contacts are their stock in trade. The context of these contacts is probably a fast - paced, social whirl where they are being continuously challenged and stimulated. If things get dull, Gemini will simply find a new field in which to play. The Twins are also curious to a fault, something which can get them into trouble every now and again (no mincing words for these folks!).
Leading a staff meeting is not a goal for the Twins, but providing input certainly is. Teaching colleagues is always fun, as is sharing the wealth of information in their heads and creating harmony all around. When wanderlust creeps into Gemini's life, it can generally be relieved with a quick business trip or a few days of play. Back at the ranch, the Twins would be well served by a diligent assistant to keep tabs on their workaday world and be sure they're getting things done.
The Gemini office is likely to be filled with multiple phones, a computer or two, fax machines, a TV -- anything that will aid communication. A packed bag is in the corner, just in case. Their car of choice is a zippy little convertible with a cell phone or two, the perfect way to plan a lunch date at the most happening bistro in town.
Geminis are well suited as explorers, writers, merchants, translators, publicists -- even the next Oprah!
Gemini Fitness Profile
The flexible Twins do their best to be in two places at once, all the time. Always in motion, Gemini will get bored quickly with anything that doesn't move fast enough. As a Gemini, you're versatile and want to try absolutely everything -- in short spurts. Gemini is a team player and likes large groups, yet is mostly noncompetitive and likely gets into sports and fitness activities just for fun. Since Gemini rules the arms, hands, shoulders and lungs, swimming is an excellent way to stay in shape. You may enjoy quick, exciting sports that can be played in doubles, like table tennis and bobsledding. The flexible Twins may also excel in gymnastics. Mental fitness is also important; after a day of running around, it's great to relax with a game of Trivial Pursuit.
Gemini Fashion Profile
Every day is an adventure for the Twins. You probably open your closet in the morning to have a mountain of crumpled garments cascade onto your head. Once you dig through the mess, it is only a question of figuring out what you feel like that day and throwing on the clothing to match. You follow trends halfheartedly because you become bored with them quickly. If a new trend hits you every day, you're ready to embrace that new trend -- if only for the next 24 hours. You're a bit conscious of your wallet when going clothing shopping, but if you find the fuzziest pair of slippers you've ever set your feet in, not much is going to stop you from making them yours. You probably don't care about, or even look at, what the label on your new garment says, as long as you like the way it looks and feels.
You may do well in tank tops to show off your arms, and you can never go wrong with blue denim. If you think about putting on makeup in the morning, it's probably very light, perhaps only lip gloss to give you even more than your natural shine. Arm bands and dangly bracelets are a must unless, like tight clothing, they're too constricting. Experimental Gemini is willing to try anything once, but your hair is usually pretty simple, with only twin braids to bring out your inner nature.

|Would Look Good On:||Angelina Jolie
Gemini is always on the go, so they're looking for food they can pick up and run with, or that they don't need to spend forever preparing. The Twins are fond of ginger and parsley. As an Air Sign, they're looking for variety.
Gemini Friendship Profile
The social butterfly of the Zodiac has lots of friends. In fact, the Twins should have twice as many as any other Sign. One side of a Gemini will want to go hang - gliding and run around outside, while the other is keen on sitting cozily at home and playing a board game. Their friends need to be as diverse as they are in order to keep up, or they just need to know when to let Gemini go free.The Twins can bond well with lots of different kinds of groups. If they get bored with one set of people, they always have a few more groups that will be more interesting -- for awhile. Gemini is a sociable creature who enjoys having friends. If you can match their pace and mercurial temperament, you and your friend will have a blast. The best way to develop a bond with a Gemini is to make an intellectual connection. Interested in exploring anything at all? Take along your Gemini pal and enjoy the new perspective they give to even the most ordinary situations. If you can match wits with this one, they'll respect your intellect and work to develop this worthwhile friendship.

Gemini: Karmic Life Lessons
Gemini's great gift is communication. Ruled by Mercury, the Communication Planet, Gemini is talkative, witty and intellectual. Geminis make great novelists, songwriters, humorists, professors and politicians. Always thirsty for knowledge and information, those born under its influence are the life of every party as they keep everyone entertained with their wit and wisdom. With this verbal gift, however, comes the tendency to run off at the mouth -- talking too much during intimate moments, for example, when silence would be more appropriate, or engaging in reckless gossip that ends up hurting someone's feelings.
Gossiping with coworkers over the water cooler is just one of the ways Gemini might get into trouble. Breaking meetings and appointments, canceling dates with friends and being flirty with anyone and everyone all are well within the realm of possibility. Scheduled activities aren't exactly Gemini's strong suit; if, when the time comes to attend the meeting or appointment, Gemini feels like doing something else, they'll be hard - pressed to think of a reason not to follow their own whim -- or they'll become irritable at having to do something they don't want to do. Geminis are non - conformists who resent restriction and regulation.
Gemini does make a good worker, though, partly thanks to its famously dual - natured personality. The Twins can happily handle several projects at once -- Geminis are the original multi - taskers -- but they lack follow - through and tend to drop projects, lovers and jobs as soon as things become even remotely dull. Gemini's dual nature also lends the ability to see all sides of an issue, but this can lead Gemini to be indecisive or non - committal. In fact, many Geminis have trouble with commitment, whether it be to a relationship, a job or a course of education; this can lead others to think of them as being rather fickle, capricious or two - faced. That's not it, though; Geminis simply want to know and experience everything and can't linger on any one thing for long.
Geminis would do well to learn the reasons behind their own constantly changing whims, since their inability to relax and focus doesn't simply come from out of the blue. It is lent, in part, by their Mutable Quality, which lends them that go - with - the - flow flexibility, but part of the problem may also stem from a lack of concentration. There's just so much to learn, so much to find out about, there's no time to waste, right? Well, not exactly. Gemini must learn that far more can be discovered when time, focus and concentration are bestowed upon a relationship or a course of study. In going deeper and focusing more intently, Gemini will uncover those truths that seem so desirable and elusive.
Gemini could greatly benefit from taking the path of "quality, not quantity." This kind of focus and connection could be learned from Sagittarius, the Philosopher of the Zodiac, who is a thinker, like Gemini, but unlike Gemini likes to delve deeply to learn the truths of the Universe. Geminis could learn even more about close, careful focus from their Virgo friends, who can also teach carefree Gemini about the value of helping others. Finally, Gemini could look to Pisces to learn to approach life from a less intellectual, more emotional point of view.

Gemini Kid Profile
If you're a Gemini your mouth probably runs a mile a minute. Gemini is an Air Sign, which means you're full of ideas and love to talk to anyone and everyone. Your mind moves even faster than your mouth; you probably love to read and usually have three different books going at once. Gemini is represented by the Twins, which makes you great at settling disputes: you can always see both sides of an argument. You've also got a great sense of humor. Are you the class clown, constantly making all your friends crack up while your teacher tells you to settle down? Yep, just like a Gemini!
Gemini Money Profile
The chatty Twins might be considered the deal - makers of the Zodiac, albeit guileless ones. A crowded cocktail party with its potential for new contacts and endless possibilities is heaven on earth to the fun - seeking Twins who also have the delicious ability to charm their way into the pocketbooks of everyone they meet (all aboveboard, of course).
Changeable, unpredictable Geminis enjoy spending their pennies, rarely worrying about where the next check will come from. Their charisma will surely lead to something! The Twins can't be bothered with the minutiae of balancing accounts, though, since there are so many more interesting things to do. They also adore flexibility in their lives, which means they'll never get a gold watch from an employer after twenty - five years -- they'll have gone through twenty - five jobs during that time!
As far as the Twins are concerned, money is a necessary evil. Hey, there's so much to do! And if it takes money, so be it -- the Twins will find a way to make some. It's the money - making journey which is all - important to Geminis, however, and there best be plenty of freedom and flexibility along the way, because these folks would never trade a fat paycheck for a humdrum job
Even so, jobs are what the Twins crave, and lots of 'em, since keeping busy is great fun. The Twins enjoy juggling many tasks, and a job or two, coupled with volunteer efforts and the occasional "scheme" to make a few extra bucks, is all in a good day's work. Geminis are ideally suited as salespeople since it's a great way to talk all day long! And talk they can, for these folks could sell ice to Eskimos. A freelance sales job is ideal, thanks to its flexible scheduling. Geminis rarely worry about whether they'll have enough money since they are highly confident people and know they can pull a rabbit out of a hat.
Are the Twins good with money? Well, they can have a pretty hard time deciding between practicality and pleasure ("the phone bill's due, but those shoes would be perfect for tomorrow night's party!"). If their partner is willing to manage the purse strings, life with the Twins can be a non - stop joyride!
Describing the Twins as mercurial is right on the money, since Gemini is ruled by the Planet Mercury. Moving, restless, seeking, learning -- Gemini is constant motion, a torrent of wind which is in keeping with this sign's element of Air. The Twins are highly intellectual and won't hesitate to play mind games with a lover, mere child's play to them. They are also great communicators, so get ready to hear everything from pithy remarks to impassioned pleas. Inventive, quick - witted and fun, the Twins will jump around from one lover to the next until they find one who is almost as smart as they are and able to keep up in this high - spirited race. The reward for those who can lasso a Gemini is a free - spirited lover who shines at parties but is also a devil in the bedroom. Many Geminis are also ambidextrous. Ooh.
Gemini and Romance
A love affair with a Gemini requires great stamina, so start doing those push - ups now! The Twins are both fun and funny and love to laugh, play and romp. They are possessed of a very active mind, which can sometimes lead to a short attention span. The best way to keep the Twins around, and aroused, is through mental stimulation. A razor - sharp and imaginative lover is a godsend to the terrific Twins. This sign also values adventure and travel, so a certain footloose and fancy free - ness will help this romance bloom. The duality of the Twins allows them to see both sides of an issue, so in times of stress, they are much likelier to be a lover than a fighter. They will also feel especially connected to those who can help them feel, since they spend so much of their time thinking.
Aquarius in Relationships
A union with Gemini is many things, but it is certainly never boring. The Twins, above all, seek a partner who is mentally stimulating, and once they've found them, sparks will definitely fly! The Twins' lover must be able to keep up in the fast - paced gamed of life, lest they get bored and move on. Variety of expression, a certain openness and a searching quality are all things which will stimulate the Twins and keep them around. Those born under this sign love to dazzle with their intelligence and quick wit and are consequently the star of any party. Jealous lovers will find themselves tested by Gemini's magnetism, and often it's the Twins themselves who are giving the test, to see if a lover is really true. The lover who can keep the Twins feeling comfortable yet give them space will win themselves a lover beyond compare. At the end of the day, the ideal Gemini soul mate has a Ph.D., and is a world traveler with countless tales to tell.
Gemini in Love
The game of love is a real adventure for the Twins, since the chase can seem so much more fun. The real question for Gemini is, can they find that one person who is a keeper and will keep them happy forever? If there are any doubts, the Twins will just keep on looking. When in love, Gemini can be a very caring and thoughtful partner, someone who will do somersaults to keep their lover happy. Often, though, the Twins find themselves adrift in the sea of love, feeling vulnerable and needing something, or someone, to fill a lonely void. For all the party chatter and intense brain waves, the Twins have a bit of a melancholy spot, and tenderness and affection can be the perfect antidote.
Gemini and Sex
The Twins aren't asking for much, just someone who will stimulate their mind for a great time. Of course, those mental hijinks need to have a bit of follow - through, so a lover with variety on their mind will score a perfect 10. That said, a quickie in the back seat of a fast car is just what the doctor ordered on some days. Face it, this sign is versatile! Most of all, though, sex is a mental sport for Gemini. The act begins in the head and works its way down and around. Gemini is always in search of the perfect lover and the perfect sexual experience. Once they (hopefully) find it, they will want, and give, stimulation to all the senses, for sight, sound and touch are all important. Bottom line: The Twins want something different and something complete. Not too much to ask, right?
What Gemini Needs
Someone who can roll with the punches and keep smiling in the face of a multi - faceted onslaught is priceless to the hyperactive Twins. It's an added plus if that person is smart, fun, a good friend and a great sport. Geminis need someone who can be attentive to them and who will naturally enjoy their sparkle and wit. They also prefer a strong partner who is not necessarily as smart as they are but who can pick them up, emotionally, when necessary. If the Twins can make a marvelous mental match, life will be a dream.
The Gemini lover is easygoing and caring, yet daring and a ball of fire at the right moments. Mental fireworks are high on their agenda, their own as well as those they can make with another. Only those with plenty of punch need apply for this celestial light show!
Gemini Technology Profile
Craving conversation makes Geminis the ideal addition to any online community. Your intellectual inclination makes the Internet a perfect tool for exploration. A probing nature is to be expected, which means that the components that make up your computer experience will leave you intrigued. Using search engines suits you well, since they get you the information you need quickly. Geminis have a wit as quick as a mouse click, and because in life you easily go with the flow, your interaction with computers is bound to be positive. Your uncanny ability to find the common element between the numbers and the pictures means that you'll get the gist of the full process.
Gemini Travel Profile
Weekend getaways were clearly
designed with a Gemini in mind. No fan of long, drawn - out excursions, the Twins much prefer to hop into the car, get to where they're going (and fast!) and sightsee like crazy once they're there. Sitting around on a beach is for everyone else, thank you very much. Intellectually curious Geminis are always eager to learn from their travels, and one of the best ways to do this is by talking to the people at their destination. Who better to offer some local color and insight?
The Twins enjoy having a traveling companion, if only to have someone to talk to! Those born under this sign don't feel a need to get every last bit of information while traveling, either -- a quick glimpse into things is just fine, and then it's off to the next place or activity on the agenda. Will there be much in the Gemini's travel bag? Unlikely, since they'll pack as light as Air, the element which rules their sign.
The Twins are also good to have along on a group tour, as they have a knack for synthesizing chunks of information and making it easily understandable. Consider them a pocket tour guide. Those born under this sign are also street - smart and possessed of good common sense, an ideal combination for the intrepid traveler.
