Geminis are the star sign born between May 22 and June 22, and belong to the Air element of the zodiac (along with Libra and Aquarius). They are super-fast, super-smart, super-adaptable and super-curious people. All of this super-ness makes them fascinating to be around, albeit usually only for short spells because they can a) wear you out, b) get easily distracted elsewhere and before you know it, they’re off.
Geminis like variety, keeping their options open, having lots of opportunities on the go, and being ~in the know~ about anything, everything, and everyone. Notorious gossips! They are generally kind, but there is a slither of chilliness and detachment, created by their Air element and twin nature. You never quite know which Gemini is showing up, and there’s always one in the background taking notes, and keeping secrets.
To get an idea of the classic Gemini personality traits and types, we need only to look to some of the most famous twins (the star sign’s symbol): Kanye West, Kylie Minogue, Tupac, Marilyn Monroe, Angelina Jolie and Donald Trump (sorry) to name a few. These guys ALL have big personalities.
Gemini personality traits
Versatile (read: superficial)
If the phrase "Jack of all trades, master of none" applied to any sign then it’s Gemini. You will, at first, think your Gemmy friend is across everything. In truth, they often skim-read and acquire titbits of knowledge, like the Mercurial magpie they are, BUT it only ever reaches skin-deep. Their interest rarely lingers long enough for them to truly delve into any one subject. A bit of knowledge… And they’re off to the next shiny gem.
Smart (read: ruthless)
Feelings = ugh. Geminis are not known for being sentimental or emotional, they are the kind of friend who will disappear if you start crying (unless you’re also simultaneously revealing some really juicy gossip.) They leaning on the analytical, mental and cerebral side of life, making it easier for them to disconnect and see situations dispassionately. They adore dissecting thorny issues but they’re likely to come up with some pretty, quite frankly, psychopathic-sounding solutions.
Youthful (read: immature)
Happily for them, they tend to be the Peter Pan of the zodiac - both physically and mentally. They are still into the latest trends long after everyone else has “settled down” (Geminis hate the idea of “settling down”, sounds dangerously like “dying” to them.)
The flip side of looking young and being so perky can mean they are also flaky, childish and silly at times. They also party WAY too much.
Fast (read: erratic)
Mercury is a planet which is associated with speed, and Geminis think fast, eat fast, move fast, talk fast, “get” stuff fast, change their mind fast… So much so that they can even meet themselves coming back round the other way! This can make them seem erratic, even duplicitous, because they don’t stick to their opinions or commitments. Tough shit.
Curious (read: Gossips)
Gemini wants to KNOW IT ALL. And they are particularly turned ALL THE WAY on by salacious, scandalous and sexually-inflammatory gossip and intrigue. They have no problem spreading news around - surely that’s what everyone is doing anyway, right? Their moral compass can waiver when they’re tempted to tell everyone everything.
What are Geminis into?
Reading and writing. Words are their catnip. They love to communicate and they HAVE to know. If humanity ever reaches a Matrix-style scenario, where we’re all hooked up to some damned psychic/mind sharing machine… you can bet the first person plugging themselves in will be a curious Gemmy.
Travel. Travelling is like an instant mood/life/scene change so Gemmys queue up, year-round, to take a trip and see the world. They truly come alive when they’re immersing in other cultures… Albeit probably only for, like, a weekend. Then they’re ready for the next scene-change.
Partying. There is literally no “off” button. Bear in mind, older Gemmys may move from the night club into day drinking or dinner parties. The key is that whatever equates to partying in their mind is what they’ll prioritise above almost everything else on the schedule.
Making loads of friends (then not keeping up with any of them). People = information, so Gemini likes to procure a large garden of contacts they can call upon. That said, the emotional requirements of maintaining relationships can swiftly overwhelm them and then, honestly, they just cut the (now) dead wood away. Brutal. I think a Gemini invented ghosting.
Chatting and drinking wine. Need we say more?
Gemini's most attractive traits
Geminis are the uber-flirts of the zodiac, and can chat up anyone, anywhere, anytime. They never run out of news, info, gossip and charm, and they are ruled by Mercury - the planet of communication. Geminis always seem youthful, energetic, and full of fun and good humour. Geminis are attractive because:
They exude energy, positivity and good vibes (well, one of the twin selves does, anyway) which is infectious.
They live to entertain, inform, and inspire. They’ll do ALL the work in company, and keep you entertained 24/7.
They are youthful, active, and smiley. Geminis always attract second glances because of their glow-y aura.
Who gets on best with Gemini?
Many people fleetingly fancy the Gemmys because of their youthful, fun, partying exterior… But not that many can get past their actual chilly nature and need to be free and untethered. Relationships are sometimes difficult for them. Just one person for forever and forever? Hmm.
Other Air signs respect that need for space, though, because they feel it too, and are entertaining and clever enough to keep things stimulating. So, Libra, Gemini and Aquarius ALL get on well.
Gemini turn ons
Geminis are blessed (because it makes you flexible) and cursed (because it makes you fickle) with duality. You often act in an opposite way entirely to what you truly feel. Relationships are tricky, for this reason, and you can’t help but be attracted to those who give you the ~cold shoulder~. It’s almost like a beacon, magnetising your attention and your urge to impress and entertain this person who seems (how dare they) disinterested in your fabulousness.
Intellect. All Geminis are totally melted by those with sharp, shrewd, wise, creative, and soaring intellects. A big brain is more appealing to a Gemini than a big anything-else.
Geminis are ruled by Mercury, the planet of travel and communication. Therefore, dates which feel like adventures, explorations, missions are absolute cat nip. You adore visiting, meeting, learning about and trying new things. You are a boundary-pusher and a curious observer of the world around you, and you need a partner who wants to do that too.
Your turn offs
Clinginess. Oh my lord, it makes your teeth HURT when you feel like someone needs you around all of the time, pokes their nose into your every waking moment, and pours affection on you like custard on a sticky toff pud. Holy moly, it is so gross it gives you the instant ICK. Gemini, you need as independent and ~chilly~ a soul as your own to be truly compatible in love.
A lack of interest in society, the world, other cultures, gossip, celebrity news - basically anything and everything - is incomprehensible to you. Life is bursting with interesting stuff to look at, analyse, examine, learn from and use. You can be pretty quick to write off people that don’t seem curious and engaged with the wider world, and just stick to their same routine and small corner.
