"I'm My Obsession"
Negative Geminis are good-looking icons of sick or sleazy behavior, blurting out statements that would embarrass any other sign. When disaster strikes, they can spin it so that the worse they are, the better they seem. Spout conspiracy theories? Name your baby “North West”? Divorce your wife who has cancer? Gemini says, “Who wouldn’t? Why not?”
Positive Geminis are adaptable and hilariously witty. Negative Gemini, anxious to escape the life they've fallen into, fixates on short-term solutions: the next deal, the next marriage, the next job or fix or wisecrack or photo op. Walking alongside a negative Gemini you can feel how invisible you are to him or her.
Gemini’s goal is to be godlike and part of history. Boris Johnson (birthday June 19) as a kid was asked what he wanted to be, and replied, "World king." Aging Gemini men find amazing ways to make money outside of their areas of expertise, like Kanye West's (June 8) sneaker line or former U.S. vice president Mike Pence's (June 7) seven-figure book deal. Certain Gemini females, like Marjorie Taylor Greene (May 27), evangelist Joyce Meyer (June 4), or Laura Ingraham (June 19) hide their ambition under saintly or churchly behavior and, when they're rich, say everybody else is just jealous.
Geminis are called “two-faced,” but the constellation Gemini represents identical twins with the same face. Negative Geminis are their own mirrors and are simply twice as conceited.
My greatest pain in life is that I will never be able to see myself perform live."
— Kanye West, Gemini
The many great Gemini athletes, such as tennis players Novak Djokovic (May 22) and Venus Williams (June 17), draw from their Sun sign extra physical energy and competitive spirit. But a Gemini sitting alone mulling on fixed ideas about UFOs or raspberry ketones can be a menace to society.
When not harping on their important personal mission, they’re playing games with people’s minds and winning. Money and fame naturally flow their way and they can monetize the jerkiest ideas and behavior. Sure they’ll sign book and movie contracts and sell the rights to photos of their kids. And the public will pay to see them! A study of 1000 English millionaires showed that the highest percentage were Geminis.
I have enormous personal ambition. I want to shift the entire planet. And I’m doing it. I am now a famous person. I represent real power."
— Newt Gingrich, Gemini
Gemini and Relationships
Take it as a blessing when a Gemini loved one runs off or backs away. You don't want the amoral ones with short attention spans.
Superficial in bed, negative Geminis are excited mainly by illegal or illicit sex. Cases in point: former New York governor and bordello client Eliot Spitzer (June 10), John F. Kennedy (May 29), and South Carolina governor Mark Sanders (May 28), who vanished from his job and home for five days to fly to Argentina for sex. The dating site Ashley Madison, with 17 million users, found that the biggest cheaters were Gemini women. Google “Angelina cheat” and you’ll get 1,250,000 results.
Negative Geminis don’t love—they possess—and rarely laugh except at their own jokes. Often they got warped growing up. Some Geminis, like Joan Rivers (June 8), succeed by building on their spazziest traits. Talented Geminis eventually learn that attention and fame aren't substitutes for friends, and in their loneliness some are tempted and ruined by substance abuse.
Truth isn't truth."
— Rudy Giuliani, Gemini
Often without inner resources, talentless Geminis run on instinct or substances or by siphoning someone else’s energy. Tyrannizing a friend, spouse, parent, roommate, employee or child—anyone in their litterbox—is just practice for doing it to others. Some will apologize and man-splain or woman-splain, and people call them two-faced, but it’s all part of their mission: to be a god or goddess. That’s not a rational goal, but they’re not rational.
When former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani (May 28) said “Truth isn’t truth,” he captured the essence.
Gemini's "Teflon" Advantage
Listing the negative Geminis not yet named is probably the best way to further explore this sign’s dark side. These people inspire Halloween costumes. Of course they have good traits—especially nerve. There's also a highly developed ability to leave a bad taste in the mouth of the whole culture.
We would all love to be irresponsible, hype our personal greatness, star on our own TV show and be a rocker or rapper. A negative Gemini does all that and has the Gemini “Teflon” advantage: No matter what outrageous things Geminis say or do, in the biggest paradox of all, people adore and admire negative Gemini, wishing they had the nerve to act like such a drainhole.

DO NOT DELETE MY COMMENTS EXEMPLORE, ffs.
That is one of the things that will get a Gemini's back up is if you approve a message, then remove it for no reason. Dumb arses, have some respect.

PS, Stupid human machines, so computers, IT products that are really poor quality and well below the standards of the Gemini are what totally anger me.
I have no problem with destroying any human built product, especially their poorly executed IT products. I believe that computers are dissident, ha ha, again, Gemini craziness, but machines and I do not get on as machines do not seem to do as they are told and are slow in comparison to the Gemini mindset, which is instant and is quicker than any machine the human can construct.

I think that you will find that a true Gemini, like myself is all of these, whether light or darkside, all at the same time as well.
I can be witty one minute, captivate entire audiences, then totally and utterly brutal the next with literally zero care for the person who has done bad by me, etc. For sure we have a split personality, trust issues and are paranoid. All of those things, but we are fighting good and evil. I feel this constant tug between good and evil, all the time, constant struggle. Unlike the rest of the signs, we do not answer or have to answer to anyone else. A Gemini makes his or her decision on where they wish to end up, when they are in this life or passed away, even then when you are in the void as I call it, a Gemini is not dictated too and has the ability to basically do as they please, not just in this reality but also in the next and so on. No other star sign I am aware of has this ability and this means that no otgher star sign is as close to the ONE, meaning God or Spirits, etc, etc, which the Gemini is, because remember, the Gemini is fighting good and evil all the time, in this perpectual war and good vying for the Gemini and evil vying for the Gemini. Go figure that one out, but as far as I am concerned, Gemini are by far a supreme star sign with abilities the others will never have. Proper spiritual for starters and knowing what lays beyond is a major, major Gemini trait and benefit.
All true full on Gemini's are like this. I have quite a few friends who are Gemini. They all seem to have the same traits, including that little anger issue that again, pretty much every Gemini I am aware of has. The anger comes from anxious and also if someone aggravates me as a Gemini I can assure you, I am not very forgiving and will go out of my way to basically ruin them. Again, Gemini trait, be it darker side as they call it.
But it is that dark side one minute, then light the next. It is not easy being a Gemini, but there is not another breed like us anywhere. The others bore me, people bore me, they are not on our level intellectually and most are unaware of what lays beyond this existence.

I am a Gemini/Taurus cusp and feel like I have more traits of a Taurus. But still have a little bit of that flighty, immature double headed Gemini that escapes from time to time, lol. Thanks for sharing, I have always found information like this incredibly insightful and interesting.
