Characteristics of Gemini Sun Sign People
Unfettered and Free
Gemini is symbolized by the Twins, and ruled by the planet Mercury. Birthdays for Gemini sun sign people range from around May 21-June21 of the year. But you must always consult an Ephemeris, or online chart, to confirm that. Both are long lists of planetary positions by date, the Ephemeris for fifty years, the online chart less. Sometimes the planets enter signs a day or two earlier or later. Your Sun Sign is never on a “cusp” as some would have you believe. Every planet was in an Astrology sign when you were born, and that is why you may be different from other Geminis. Since you are born under the sign of the Twins, sometimes you may seem so changeable that those around you may wonder which one of you they are interacting with at which time! Gemini is the first mutable air sign, which means you adapt well to change and like to feel unfettered and free. Air signs are ruled by their heads, and Gemini Sun sign people are highly intelligent. Your interest can be aroused by any subject, and once it is, you will research it to discover as much as possible. Gemini sun sign people are quick learners, and love to discuss what they learned with those around them.
Gemini Sun sign people definitely have a way with words. They put them together well, and although they do not want to be described as glib, a Gemini will retort with a sarcastic comment when somebody hurts their feelings. One great Gemini wordsmith is Bob Dylan, who was awarded a special Pulitzer Prize in 2008 as a special citation for “his profound impact on popular music and American culture, marked by lyrical compositions of extraordinary poetic power.” He later went on in 2016 to win the first Nobel Prize for Literature awarded to any songwriter. I idolize Bob Dylan, and have decided to give examples of some of his wonderful lyrics:
My Back Pages
Crimson flames tied through my ears
Rollin' high and mighty traps
Pounced with fire on flaming roads
Using ideas as my maps
"We'll meet on edges, soon," said I
Proud 'neath heated brow
Ah, but I was so much older then
I'm younger than that now.
Or It's Alright Ma, I'm Only Bleeding
Darkness at the break of Noon
Shadows even the silver spoon
The handmade blade, the child's balloon
Eclipses both the sun and moon
To understand you know too soon, there is no sense of trying.
Pointed breaths they bluff with scorn
Suicide remarks are torn
From the Fool's gold mouthpiece the hollow horn
Plays wasted words prove to warn
That he who is not busy being born is being dying.
Dylan now says those words "came through him" and he couldn't write like that anymore even if he wanted to. He claims he's not that same person. But all Geminis do have great writing and communicating skills.
The Best Communicators
Gemini Sun sign people are the Zodiac’s communicators, aided by their Mercury ruler. Your Gemini sun sign friends are always the first to call to fill you in on what’s going on, or to stop by to see how you are doing. They do not need an engraved invitation, and genuinely care. Geminis will gravitate to working as reporters, writers, publishers, poets, actors, web masters, bloggers, or detectives. These are people who excel in any career which depends on speaking, writing and thinking skills. Gemini sun sign people have innovative insights into matters that may be overlooked by others. They are capable of handling many kinds of situations at one time, or even at working two jobs, because they are so mentally alert, that mind is always going. These are extremely imaginative ones, and their quick minds come in handy if there is any kind of emergency. This can also make it hard for them to relax, as it is difficult to “turn off” a mind that is thinking about so many things at once. Gemini sun sign people must guard against nervous conditions which may make it hard for them to rest and eat properly.
Work Well with Hands
Gemini sun sign people are objective and always try very hard to be fair to others. They dislike crude behaviors, especially if they see another person being teased or attacked for being different in some way, or having an unconventional point of view. Geminis are always asking questions, as they want to know why or how things work. Always alert and versatile, Gemini sun sign people are also very dexterous and work well with their hands, making good musicians, quilters, knitters, craftsmen, builders and model makers. You can try to beat them at Scrabble or a trivia game, but it will not be easy, they excel at those. Gemini people are the life of the party, and brighten your day just by being part of it.
As adults they can turn all that creative energy and original thought into good job opportunities or business plans. They will always maintain a bit of an unconventional air about them, as they do not like rules or feeling a lack of freedom, unless there is a reasonable explanation for it. They will reach a point as they mature when they realize that cooperation goes a long way towards getting them what they want. Gemini Sun sign people have so much potential, and with a bit of patience they will reach their lofty goals. At least until they change their minds and have new goals. This happens frequently, but has a way of working out
Attracted to Others on a Mental Level
Geminis are so bright, always well versed in many subjects. They love to read and always have interesting points of view. Geminis keep up on all the latest information and fads, being great conversationalists. Sometimes the saying “Jack or Jill of all trades and the master of none” is used to describe these whirlwinds of activity, but generally they are Masters of whatever studies that they undertake. The Gemini love nature can come across as cold or fickle, because they are ruled by the head, and not the heart. Other planets can change that a little, such as if you have a Gemini with a Venus in Cancer, which is not uncommon.
Venus is the love and social nature, and in Cancer is sensitive and romantic. Since Cancer is the sign after Gemini, it would be common for a Gemini to have at least one planet in Cancer, and possibly more. Taurus is the sign before Gemini, and again, if the Venus is in Taurus, you would have a quieter Gemini, but one with a much more sensual and huggy/kissy kind of love nature. But in general, a Gemini is attracted to someone who interests them on a mental level first, and having common interests is the key to any successful relationship. They make terrific parents, because they are fun and genuinely want to know what their kids are doing and thinking. Kids can sense when adults are really interested and it makes them feel good when Mom or Dad knows how to play their favorite video game or can sing a song from their favorite group.
