Sun in Gemini - Zodiac Signs

Gemini has an erratic, curious persona with many, often contradictory, sides to it. 

Some Geminis are gangly with arms and legs like an aerial moving in all directions. Many are thin, especially if they have the nervous habit of smoking. I've known many Geminis that are into fashion, and have striking, yet changeable, looks. 

Geminis deal with a lot of anxiety, because they are like social antennae, picking up on all kinds of data out there. Gemini-style depression is often floating anxiety, but some deal with extreme highs and lows.

Though they're social, Gemini needs time alone to gather her thoughts, and calm her mind. A Gemini that doesn't take time to relax gets strung out, and fears getting off the treadmill. A racing mind is a sign that the Twins are in overwhelm, and it's time to unplug. 

The Many Faces of Gemini

Gemini in Love is cagey, flirty and of course, a chameleon. You'll never have a boring day with a loving Gemini in your life. But you might feel unsettled, not knowing who she'll be from one day to the next. 

The Gemini Sun is a chameleon, which makes their personality hard to describe since it changes all the time. Those born under the sign of the "Twins" have at least two personalities, but often many more. Their insatiable curiosity keeps them learning new things, and this makes many of them like walking encyclopedias of knowledge.

You might hear the laughter of Gemini Suns before you see them, since they’re always finding something absurd to giggle over. They’re great wits and their interest in people often puts them in the role of social ice breaker.

Gemini's planetary ruler is Mercury, and that's why they're known as mercurial. Many are intellectual, but not always in a serious way, like an academic. Gemini likes to stay current, and may be in media or the arts.

Those with Sun in Gemini might be hard to pin down, but if you accept this shape-shifting quality, they’re excellent friends. This can even be true in a relationship, where they need an intellectual rapport with their mate. The ideal companions for them are those that think at their same speed of light, and don’t tie them up in one dull topic.

The Evil Twin

The Dark Side of Gemini comes from being detached from emotion, which is egged on by culture and technological entrancement. Being so open to novelty, Gemini can be drawn into the YOLO mindset, and the attitude to try anything once. 

Some dark side traits are being manipulative, duplicitous and a cruel gossip. Geminis can get into hot water from oversharing on social media, for example, without realizing what's sensitive to another.

Light Touch in Love

They need a certain kind of space to grow, and those close to them don’t try to hold on too tightly. The Gemini knows that the world is vast and full of endless fascinations to explore. If the door is open in a relationship for them to come and go at will, they’ll prove their own brand of loyalty over time.

The Gemini needs to be able to reinvent themselves many times and to follow the threads of inspiration wherever they lead. This can make them seem restless and inconsistent – another name for it is flaky. They’re always called the dilettante of the Zodiac because they’ll try anything once, and usually do! But once the Gemini finds a subject through that is worthy of that incredible kaleidoscopic mind, a deeper mastery can be sought and achieved.

The Gemini is a charmer and a clown. And often they wear a silly grin, as if they get the cosmic joke that all is well and it’s okay to sample everything from the smorgasbord of life.
