May 21 – June 21

Element: Air
Quality: Mutable
Ruling house: Third
Ruling planets: Mercury

 

Gemini is the third sign of the zodiac. Its main quality, air, makes it a bit unstable, hard with choices and very curious. This very curiosity makes Gemini to appear (and sometimes to be) extremely astute, with a fast mind and quick to make connections.

The ruling planet is Mercury, the planet of mind and travel. In the aggravated form, a Gemini will exhibit restlessness, a chronic superficiality and the inability to focus on a certain topic for a long time. In its more balanced form, a Gemini can make for a great friend, social player (they’re naturally good at creating connections) and an effective problem solver.

Their general light approach towards life also gives them a tremendous sense of humor. Some of them may express it openly, becoming the center of the party, no matter what they do or say, while others will be just consumers, but very styled. Despite their restlessness, some of them may exert a lot of application towards a given task, especially if the task is something that appeals to them. But the general rule applies here too: they will need frequent breaks from the main action in order to keep being productive.

Many Gemini will express a lot of taste, being it in fashion or general arts, or dance. As with humor, some of them may become very skilled artists or performers, while other may become connoisseurs of some sorts.

Their ability to understand both sides of the situation can bring them in positions where strong negotiation skills are required (politics, for instance, or top management in corporations).

Gemini rules the third house of the zodiac.
