21 May and 21 June
The third sign of the Zodiac, Gemini is the sign of the twins. The Geminis personality is dual-natured and has complex characteristics that are classically contradictory - see the relationship section in particular.
The Gemini sign is linked with the planet Mercury, the planet of childhood and youth. Geminians don't disappoint and can be lively and happy when everything is right, or dark and restless when not. Typically there can be application or attention to detail issues, and changing your mind half way through an event is not uncommon.
As the star sign of Gemini, you have a contradictory nature and this enables you to adapt well to new surroundings and settings. Likewise you tend to make friends easily and thanks to your impulsive nature you can easily be the life of any party. But put on the spot, Geminis can find it easier to sit on the proverbial fence as they see both sides of any situation. With a natural curiosity streak, and your good communication skills you can end up getting in some sticky situations.
Describe by some as a 'Jack of all trades, master of none', other Geminians will recognise that lively and exciting streak also belies an impatience when others do not keep up your pace of thought.

||The not so good traits|
Personal relationships :
Thanks to their contradictory nature, Geminians can be very fickle in love. So think on one hand they can be emotionally deeply in love, yet on the other hand are stand offish and keen to look in on a reltationship and analyze. Time plays a hand here, from the deepy committed initially through to a potentially light-hearted and cool relationship taking shpae the longer it goes on.
Geminians like intrigue and defintiely like the thrill of the chase. But as per above, they can then lose interest. So, wonderful friends and mates with never a dull moment, but in a relationship or as lovers watch their fickle nature and loss of interest as time goes on.

Being on your own
No mental stimulus
Gemini Health :
Those of the sign of Gemini are most susceptible to problems arising with the nervous system, the hands, the arms and the lungs according to astrological lore. The delicate neurological system of Gemini can readily be seen in their daily lives. Gemini is often much more agitated than any of the other signs of the zodiac and their tendency to overanalyse each and every situation in which they find themselves can translate into worry that affects their health in general. A leaning towards negativity is another trait which is very often found in those of the sign of Gemini which means that anxieties can be compounded. When a Gemini is ill they can turn molehills into mountains turning a minor ailment into a huge source of difficulty.
Those of the sign of Gemini should take good care of their lungs by avoiding smoking and keeping clear pollution in general whenever this is possible. In this way a big city is not the ideal place for Gemini to live as they do not respond at all well to the many and various pollutants common in highly urbanised environments. Accordingly, due to the sensitivity of those parts of the body used in breathing, Gemini can often also suffer from tuberculosis and asthma.
Being artistic people Geminis should take care of their hands and their fingers as these are utilised to a great extent in the things that they create. To avoid rheumatism in their joints and keep the hands and fingers agile and flexible, Gemini is encouraged to ensure a high intake of Vitamin C.
Gemini Money/Career :
Gemini can make good progress in careers that require communication as a great flair for verbally interacting with others is one of Gemini's strongest qualities. This ability makes Gemini especially good at being intermediaries, communicating strategy and detailed information from one level of a business to another. Managing difficult projects with ever changing goals is not a problem to those of the sign of Gemini and so they often tend to excel in such work places as newsrooms and government offices.
Overflowing with ideas and inventiveness Gemini makes a great employee if new ways of going about business are constantly required. Due to the fact that Gemini is particularly good at uniting people it's always a good idea to have at least one member of the workforce from this sign. Their enthusiasm for sharing ideas makes having a Gemini on the shop floor even more of a good idea.
The wonderful ability of Gemini to constantly see things in new ways and to be able to produce new and startling ideas almost at a whim means that those of this sign make excellent web developers and they can often be found running their own design businesses. Additionally, design is regarded as the forte of Gemini. Combine this with their other skills and it's not surprising to learn that many famous artists are born under this sign.
Gemini doesn't usually worry about the amount of money that they have and can quite contentedly spend all of it on one project as long as they find it interesting enough!
Gemini in Astrology :
Gemini is the third sign of the zodiac and is symbolised by the Twins known as the Dioskouroi (Castor and Pollux) in Greek mythology. Castor and Pollux are the two brightest stars in the constellation of Gemini. Ruled by Mercury, the planet closest to the sun and connected with the idea of velocity, Gemini is accordingly said to have great speed and agility of mind.
The symbol for Gemini most closely resembles the Roman numeral for 2 (II) and this is reflected in the idea of their dual nature. The two upright lines in this symbol are connected at the top and at the bottom portraying internal communication and the ability to convey information. Gemini therefore, as the great communicator, is associated with storytellers, bards and the great poets of old.
Gemini is one of the three Air signs, the other two being Libra and Aquarius. Just like Aries, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius and Aquarius, we find that Gemini is positive in polarity which makes them extrovert in personality and outgoing in general rather than being withdrawn or highly sensitive.
