The sign of Gemini is symbolized by quick, lively Twins, the legendary sons of Jupiter and Lea, and, naturally, people born under this charming, mysterious sign puzzle everyone including astrologers with their changing personality. What makes Twins so similar to each other and so completely different in a moment? Probably, only astrological explanation of the ruling planet Mercury and the influence it has on them will make us understand their double personality, their "masterly" quickness, the whole variety of their qualities.
Mercury, "the winged messenger of God", rules even our intellects. That is why the Geminis, directly ruled by this planet, may be more intellectual than others. The Geminis are people of moods: in a bad moon they may do rather stupid and unreasonable things and regret it afterwards.
Diversity is the basic characteristics of the Geminis. They are extremely many-sided but they should learn how to concentrate their attention on just one thing and not to waste their talent and energy. Mercury makes them very curious people that tend to analyze things, then split them and combine again and after that take on another task.
Impressions of their younger years are always very important for those born under this sign, these have a strong impact on the whole course of their lives. Witty, changeable under certain circumstances, the young Geminis are keepers of ethics. If they acquire the right moral concepts from the early childhood, they will develop and strengthen them in the later life and grow into real philosophers of efficiency and satisfaction. But if they lacked moral values in the younger days, the Geminis will rebel against conventions, tear family ties and oppose the authorities and the society.
Some Geminis may grow too self-conceited and stiff, thinking they are superior to others. They start to enjoy this idea a bit too much, ending up intellectually exhausted and tired.
Mercury bestowed many positive qualities on the Geminis. They are many-sided, easygoing, well-mannered, tactful, diplomatic, and understanding, with perfect intuition and penetration. These are all very good qualities and it is the duty of the Geminis to use them right in order to reach higher goals.
The Gemini nature has a certain coolness, which is sometimes understood as deep feelings by other people, as well as by the Geminis themselves. However, they are far from being so emotional, as one may think, for their quick change of mood is nothing but a false depth of soul.
The Geminis quickly adapt themselves to changes. They have liberal views, love to travel and find satisfaction in professions that require a broad mind.
It is a cheerful sign that is eager for new impressions. The Geminis also present a classical type of "split" personality.
