Youthful-looking Gemini is wiry and energetic, with long, slender arms and legs that are never still. Piercing, bird-like eyes are set under tapering brows in a narrow face with thin, fairish hair. The Gemini head is often cocked to one side in inquiry. Gemini's dress sense is quirky fashionable, with the male of the species often favoring a professional look.

Gemini is the original dual personality. Bright, communicative and charming at one moment, this person can be sullen or acerbic the next. It's an essentially sociable personality and the most talkative of all the sign. Gemini has a touch of the child about his of her character, positively refusing to grow old. Gemini delights in trick and puzzles, and is an inveterate practical joker. Always busy, Gemini often holds down two or more jobs. This sign switches opinions daily, while never admitting to being wrong. There's a lack of focus in Gemini that hampers any hope of a consistent lifestyle. Gemini is always looking for a new stimulus. The ideas are quick in coming, but Gemini doesn't always possess the stamina to see them through.
Gemini insists on commenting on the world as it is experienced. Using highly developed verbal skills, this mind flit like a butterfly, instantly processing information from many sources and leaping to conclusions that are communicated to anyone who will listen. Gemini knows little about everything, but lacks the concentration to focus on any one thing for long. Silver-tongued Gemini has no qualms about bending the truth to get the right result. This mind manipulates and persuades, and can convince someone that black is white if necessary. Determined to win in a verbal battle, this sign's usual quick wit and love of puns can degenerate into sarcasm.

Gemini is not comfortable with emotion and lacks emotional resilience. This cerebral sign prefers to dissect other people's feelings, but has little empathy or sensitivity. Neatly rationalizing his or her own emotions out of existence, Gemini uses talking as a way of hiding genuine feeling. Emotional burn-out can lead to deep depression.

A versatile mind is Gemini's greatest asset. The ideas flow thick and fast and multitasking comes naturally.
Gemini has problems knowing exactly what the truth is and regularly change stories without even noticing. Inconvenient facts tend to get discarded, especially when there's an opportunity to manipulate. Two-faced Gemini loves to gossip but finds it impossible to hold a secret.

The untrustworthy nature of the Gemini shadow appears quite openly from time to time. This is the trickster fixer, the con artist who persuades you it's actually a good deal. The motivation is often boredom, a reaction to stupidity or a sense of being snubbed.

Karma in the realm of Gemini usually centers around untruths or nefarious schemes. Past negatively may involve gossip, slander, betrayal or misinformation and deliberate deception. The present-life karmic challenge is to identify the truth and stick by it.

Anything to do with words: books, theater, journalism, the Internet; puzzles and games.

Peace and quiet, feeling bored or lonely, people who don't listen or whose opinions are rigid.
Money in the bank is not important. The resourceful sign is always able to raise cash when required, even if by questionable means. Gemini invented the get-rich-quick scheme and the financial con. This personality shows no hesitation in borrowing from friends or in lending money in return, and doesn't worry about running up enormous debts on a credit card. A natural gambler and shrewd investor, Gemini has a flutter - and wins.

Involving Parenthood:
Although happy to play, Gemini parents treat their children like small adults. They expect to be able to reason as a means of discipline. A withdrawn or introverted child leaves Gemini floundering.

Involving Childhood:
Inquisitive and communicative, the Gemini child benefits from an intellectually stimulating environment, right from birth. Gemini simply has to know. Young Gemini will take something apart completely to see how it works, read every book in the library, suitable or not, surf the Internet without being taught and have the music on full when doing homework. While Gemini is happy as an only child, friends are extremely important. If no one is to hand, an invisible playmate will do. The biggest problem this child has is sitting still and listening. A bored Gemini will quickly resort to destructive behavior.
Gemini is eminently suited to anything involving multitasking and communication, such as journalism, commentating, broadcasting or teaching. Gemini also makes an excellent navigator, civil engineer, personal assistant or bookseller. As a possessor of a silver tongue, sales representative, advertising or travel agent, demonstrator, spin doctor or communication expert are all suitable occupations.
Leisure Activities:
The preference is for activities that involve other people and party invitations are always well received. If Gemini has to sit still, it's to watch a film or mend a clock. Top choices of physical activity are t'ai chi, yoga and racket sports. Playing keyboard or woodwind instruments in a group are also popular Gemini pastimes, while writing, languages and computers keep this agile mind occupied. Gemini may be a shopaholic.

Suitable Gift Ideas:
Gemini likes gadgets, especially the latest communication devices. Jewellery is also bound to please, as are theater tickets and books.
