Element - Air/Mutable
Tarot Card - The Lovers, Knight of Swords
Crystals - Moonstone, Citrine, Agate
Keywords - Nimble, Speedy, Youthful, Intelligent, Weird, Indecisive
Strengths - Shrewd conversationalists, extremely flexible and smart, Gemini is open and reciprocal about new ideas and open to literally all possibilities.
Weaknesses - We're not saying you're crazy, Twins...but like, sometimes you're crazy. Being of two minds can lead some Gemini to recklessness, and their fickle tendencies can be really grating to the casual observer, or anyone that tries to order with them at a restaurant. This desire to experience every aspect of a situation can get exhausting for others, mostly for fixed signs like Leo, Scorpio, and Taurus, who can usually only handle the mercurial Twin personality for 3 seconds before wanting to punch them. Make. A fucking. Decision.
Choices, choices, choices. A variety of intellectual stimulating gewgaws, brain puzzles, and changeable outfits make Gemini happy and effusive - so much so that they may never shut up.
Non-apparel gift suggestions for the Gemini in your life:
- Weird books. Gemini are typically voracious, fast readers and while any topic can grab their attention, they love acquiring arcane knowledge to use later in fascinating conversation.
- Some modern, architectural bookends for all those books. The Twins love anything that looks like an enigma.
- Every streaming service available for media...buy them ALL. Thousands of choices are the Gemini love language.
- Adjustable jewels, like these cool slidey necklaces. They can be chokers or extra long pendants, depending on how Gemini feels that day. Or hour.
When it comes to apparel, adaptability is key. Pants that could double as a skirt, fringe accessories that can be a belt OR a necklace, and a unisexy romper that changes on a dime depending on how it's accessorized are all excellent choices for this springtime sign. Much like the weather, Gemini runs hot, cold, and everything in between.
It's a skirt. And a pant. The Rikako trouser is casual, dressy, and confounding. Just like someone else we know.
Wear it backwards or forwards. Wrap it one or twice. This harness is a best seller for a reason - it fits any mood, any outfit, and any body. It also transforms otherwise basic pieces into something to talk about, and Gemini loves that.
These vase earrings were fucking made for Gemini. Pluck whatever teeny Spring bloom that tickles their current fancy and they can change it out to match whatever the hell Mercury is doing that day.
The airy qualities embodied in Gemini like speedy intellectualism, high-brained notions about ordinary things, and rapid fire verbalization can make them confounding to live with on the daily...but they also tend to produce fascinating art, music and ideas. Peruse the evidence while listening to this seasons soundtrack chock full of Gemini work from Stevie Nicks, John Taylor of Duran Duran, Matthew Bellamy of Muse, Chino Moreno of Deftones, and the one, the only, the original sexy goth, Prince.
Happy Birthday to all of Gemini's personalities.
