Gemini Zodiac Sign - Basics:

Element: Air, Quality: Mutable, Ruler: Mercury.

Characteristic traits

Gemini takes an interest in anything initially but gets easily bored. A seeker after information, passing it on to others whether or not it's worth the trouble. A winner if clear thinking is what is needed in a crisis.


Gemini finds feelings are fascinating but hard to handle. Can't always see that the emotions need to be engaged in order for the mind to function at its best, for ideas to be fertile not sterile. An interesting new idea may lead to the abandonment of work on a vital existing one.

A word of advice

You can't explain away complex feelings. Try to enter into them. The Gemini mind can then take the vantage point of an compassionate observer, finding ways to bring them creatively into daily life. Emotions can be interesting as well as ideas!


As a Gemini your ideal mate will be most interested in the profundity of your insights and have some more to add. You may attract ones who try to make a deep spiritual system out of them, which you may think is not the point. Your fascination with emotions will attract you to partners who challenge you to face your own creatively. See Gemini Man or Gemini Woman for hints about your Gemini partner

Gemini Star Sign - a Deeper Look

The purpose of Gemini is to be one who gathers and conveys information. Gemini is to the human race as a whole what the nervous system (which Gemini rules) is to the body. If the body is in touch with a dangerous object, the nervous system carries a message to another part of the body which results in an impulse being generated which has the necessary effect of withdrawing that part of the body from the dangerous object. Or your senses may detect a pleasant fragrance coming from somewhere, a message signals that it might enhance your enjoyment of life if you move towards the source of the fragrance, and you might move towards it (especially if you have planets in Taurus in your birth chart - Taurus enjoys the physical pleasures of life!)

In order for the nervous system to be effective, it must be sensitive to many different types of stimuli, and this says something about the Gemini inclination. Gemini often takes an interest in many different things, in all sorts of information, so much so that it can fail to get an in depth knowledge of anything. Sometimes this is what is wanted - you can feed the information to others, and then they may be able to fit it into a pattern which is useful, even though it appears useless to you. You may be reading a book, and before you have finished it, be distracted by another book that takes your interest, and so never get to the bottom of what the first book was about. This can lead to criticism from others who value the virtues of persistence, but ultimately it may work toward the Gemini aim of providing as much information as possible to the collective in the hope that some of it may be of use somewhere.

Gemini is an air sign, and as such puts great value on the mind and its thinking function, to the extent that emotional experiences may be regarded as complications that are best avoided. Psychologically, air is attracted to water, but air finds the emotions difficult to deal with as they don't fit in with its concept of an ideal world. But emotions must be dealt with for the mind to be effective. Have you noticed how an emotional catharsis can clear the mind and help you think more effectively? This conflict may be apparent time and time again if you have significant planets (e.g. the Moon) in water signs in your birth chart. Compatibility issues may abound in love relationships. For instance, if the Moon is in Scorpio in your chart you will find yourself drawn towards emotionally complex situations, perhaps entanglements in relationships, which you have to live with at the same time as the Gemini in you is trying to be rational about them. Not an easy task, but the combination of emotional complexity and the ability to examine rationally what is going on can be a very fruitful one, can make you a deeper person, one who is sought out because of the experience you have.
