How You Spot the Gemini Zodiac Sun Sign

Basic Personality Traits of Gemini, The Intellectual Twins

It’s easy to spot a Gemini wherever you are. (S)he’s the one usually in the center of the group. (S)he’s the one usually entertaining everyone, making them laugh and having a good time. A Gemini can appear to be flighty and airheaded (probably because they are an air sign), but in reality, they are far from dumb. In fact, the planet of communication, Mercury, is the ruler of the Twins which makes them fluent, quick witted, communicative, and quite intelligent.

Based on the brief description above, it’s obvious why the symbol for this zodiac sign is the Twins. Some may even say they have split personalities. Well, they do. Each Gemini has two sides to them. One side is the fun, playful side; the side that is entertaining and fun loving. The other side is serious, hard working, and very intelligent. In fact, this is one of the most intelligent signs of the zodiac.

If you ever have the opportunity to know a Gemini, you are Blessed! They can keep you in stitches while teaching you about a plethora of topics. Not only are they smart, but these Twins are usually quite the party animal. Don’t miss a social event with a Gemini, for it will be an event you won’t soon forget.

Gemini in Love

If you can't handle your mate being a flirt, then don't date a Gemini. Many times, they don't even realize they are flirting. Just by being their natural, fun loving, complementary selves, flirting just comes along with their personalities. Jealousy is a complete turn off for the Twins, so accept this part of their personality or move on. Asking them not to flirt is like asking the Moon to stop orbiting the Earth.

Once you have the heart of the Twins, you will experience one of the deepest loves possible. Gemini likes to play, but serious Gemini will hold a loved one so dearly, forever putting their adored on a pedestal.

Gemini at Work

The Twins are a hard working group. They have a terrific work ethic, especially if they are enjoying their work. It is advised that anyone, but especially a Gemini, find work they are in love with. Follow your dreams, Gemini, and both personalities will be happy.

One Gemini dearest to my heart (My Father), told me several times, "Always work hard, play hard, and have lots of insurance." Now that is a typical statement made by one who falls under the zodiac sign of the Twins! It explains their intelligence, responsibility, and need for fun.

Gemini is full on energy and always on the go. It’s sometimes difficult to keep up with your Gemini buddies or mate because they become bored so easily. They usually make great athletes, actors, writers, and anything in the communications field.

Not All Geminians Are the Same

There are many factors that can alter or create one’s personality. For example, your moon sign and your rising sign or ascendant, the constellation on the eastern horizon at the time of birth, have an equal amount of influence as the sun sign does. If you find that the Gemini you know differs from some of the descriptions above, it is probable that the Moon or the Earth was in a constellation other than Gemini when your (S)he was born.

It is also important to remember there are 8 (9 if you count Pluto) planets, 12 constellations, or zodiac signs, and 12 houses in a person’s natal chart to take into consideration when learning about an individual’s personality, emotions and character traits. In addition, each zodiac sign is determined to be fixed, mutable or cardinal, and each is assigned an element such as water, earth, fire, or air.

Throughout their lives, personalities change in those under the sign of the Twins, and constantly change as they age, learn, and grow. To best understand your Gemini, you need to obtain the exact date, time and place the person was born, and create a natal chart. A professional astrologist can compare planets, houses, and aspects with the current transit chart (constantly moving picture of the sky) to identify your Gemini’s personal characteristics.

      to sweet topic.

      any real gemini here knows the truth.

      what they see is never what they get.

      what WE see is exactly what we get.

      we know people because there is not one emotion ever felt by people that we haven't felt .

      we are not dual ..

      there are living at least 10

      people inside our mind AND body.

      we feel like a fox with muscles ,

      but with one bad leg .

      we are not smart in a logical way.

      rather stupid .

      since we cannot explain our logical sense.

      we are the ones for sly and double plans and ideas.

      plan a b c and D .

      for all criminals out there who want to rob a bank without killing people ..

      phone us !

      but hey..

      pay ...

      sometimes i get tired of myself .

      i know you are too ..

      wishing i was just a dog ..

      eat , shit and sleep.

      why are we so complicated.

      why people think we are so nice ..

      we are not nice ..

      inside we are the less nicest .

      we act nice ... and for a reason.

      be honest , you express your real feelings ??

      thank you .

      no one will ever know ... What and Who we are .

      a shame to be honest.

      even more because no one ever is capable of surprising me but myself.

      bet you too have lot of headaches.

      try to stop thinking .

      our best medicine is weird sex.

      tie up our partners or get tied up yourself.

      or get phonesex half the day .

      because that is the only moment we do not think .. so no headaches.

      we are a bunch of strange ones.

      pshyco,s... schizofrenics.

      but we have a good heart .

      especially during sex .

      for all other ocasions..

      be warned .

      geminis our not the ones to play with.

      we will strike back no matter the weather ..

      day .. or night.

      take care my dear geminis.

      Well geminis are intelligent but they are not mature and wise ... They are the Childrens of the zodiac and so basically Geminis contain the qualities of a child like wit, childlike smartness and excellent social skill. A child is liked by ALL and are always POPULAR and the same way geminis are liked but they contain the same problems of a child like immature, short tempered, risktakers, stupid decision and cunningness

      Came across this page and I love reading so I read it. Sometimes I'm scared of my own self. On the other hand, sometimes I feel alone like no one understands me they say I'm bipolar. I am caring, compassionate, and loving what are they talking about. No I can't sit still but I can't help it lol I tried. Anyway you other Geminis out there what other sign u get along better with I mean date.

      Wow! That surprises me with the 3 primary placements. However, there is so much detail to this...far beyond what I can explain. I'm not an astrologer, just enjoy it as a hobby.

      I think you Gemini's rock too!

      even if i am a gemini, and i do have 3 placements in gemnini(sun,moon and mercury) but i can't identify with a lot of gemini traits like:i am not a social butterfly and i just don't like people to interact with me so much, i have a small group of friends, and i don't flirt, i just want to be left alone, and when i put my mind into something nothing can stop me because i don't change it, wich means i am not wishy washy, and when it comes to talking,with years i became quiter and intrverted, it's like i am a new person, but i love my personality the most, we geminis rock!!

      Its a fun hobby, TF. I don't live my life by astrology, and I certainly don't try to predict the future with it. I do find that its kind of a socio-science. We you get deep down into it (beyond someone's sun sign) you find some interesting similarities with certain aspects.

      Thanks for commenting :)

      A playful hub - I loved the star map. I don't read that much into astrology but I still found your hub engaging. 80% on the quiz isn't bad I don't think!

      Thanks for sharing - voted up!

      It's funny you mention Sagittarius, Gemini's polar opposite. Polar opposites can share the same traits, but usually in different ways. For example: I'm a Scorpio, 1 basic trait is possession of people (friends, lovers, children), and my husband is a Taurus. A basic Taurus trait is possession of things.

      All that being said, I still want to emphasize that we are only talking about sun signs here. Everyone is an individual and there are many planetary influences that make up one's personality. I definitely agree with your Sagittarius comment, though. They are quite adventurous and talkative too.

      Truth be told most that I know tend toward Introversion... Extroversion on the other hand, and being the life of the party is more of a Sagitarian trait... now that I'm thinking about it. For a Gemini to take on that role is more of a defense mechanism kicking in... or.. maybe opportunity striking and not being passed up...

      Gemini people have been a theme in my life. Several of my closest friends were born on May 29th (different years) and one on May 28th. All great and dear people! It's interesting to speculate why this has been a common denominator among my acquaintances (they're from all over the country, too, by the way!).

      Some of my favorite people are Gemini's! They entertain me...and my rising sign is Gemini, so we have more in common than one would think.

      I'm glad you enjoyed the hub, Roxanne459.

      Oh...and Happy Birthday

      I am a gemini in every sense of the word! I used to say people shouldn't be allowed to have kids under that sign. Now that I'm older and know myself a lot better, I wouldn't change my unique traits for anything! (I say unique, others say little crazy or bi-polar) :) Great Hub! Voted way up and shared everywhere

      Hi Mr. Maranatha! I appreciate your point of view and agree wholeheartedly. I don't predict the future, rather try to learn about people as individuals. The more you understand someone, the easier it is to accept their differences from you.

      Anyway, I see astrology more as a socio-science than a fortune telling tool. I do believe the stars are gifts from God to help us understand each other.

      Thank you for commenting, and your apology is accepted. (I was a Circus Gypsy in a past life)...HA HA HA HA - just joking ;-)

      Thank you for commenting, Mr Happy! No, I am not a Gemini, but I have a Gemini rising sign, so there are many traits that we share. As I say in the end of the article, your birth chart (natal chart) is a more complete description of your personality. There are probably other major aspects in your natal chart that make you more of a 'wall flower', so to speak. That's what makes us all so individual.

      I'm glad you enjoyed the read!

      "(S)he’s the one usually entertaining everyone" - I am not sure if this is always the rule. Although, I have one Gemini in mind now who is exactly as You said: the center of attention. I like to keep to myself and I stay aside, where I can sit and watch. I like watching the flow of life ...

      "If you ever have the opportunity to know a Gemini, you are Blessed!" - Thank You. That was a very nice thing to say. I usually get the: "You're a Gemini?! Ohh ... You're two-faced!" ... Haha ... doesn't always go well.

      "Many times, they don't even realize they are flirting." - This made me laugh!! Are You a Gemini?

      "Gemini is full on energy and always on the go." - I can certainly agree with this statement. This wolf is always on the go ... it's unreal sometimes.

      Fun read! Thank You. Cheers! : )

      zodiak info is interesting... could very well have to do with how our minds are given their basic operating system and programming that dictates how we percieve things our whole life... But.. this is quite a one sided view.. I see a Relationship to personalities... NOT for telling of Fortunes on an individual scale... that is the stuff that Circus Gypsies make money on when they run out of palms to read and rings to grift... (Apologies to any real Gypsies who may be reading this)
