“give yourself permission to communicate what matters to you in every situation” Shannon L. Alder

What’s Your Sign?

Your Zodiac Sign refers to which astrological constellation the Sun appeared to be in on the date of your birth. Each sign lasts for about 30 days, starting from around the 21st of each calendar month. If you were born close to the cusp of one sign and the next, you will need to check your year of birth for which date and at what time on that date, the Sun moved signs.


Gemini is ruled by Mercury, planet of community & communication

  • The Gemini character is influenced by the planet of communication, making this sign clever and well informed.
  • Geminis take an interest in a variety of subjects and they have a knack for making links between diverse pieces of data.
  • Geminis are natural networkers and they know how to get their message across. People find them easy to understand and interesting to chat with.
  • But Gemini’s attention wanders if the conversation gets too repetitive, or if the subject matter turns negative or becomes overly deep and complicated.



  • Geminis are natural-born communicators – lively, intelligent and interested in just about everything.
  • Variety really is the spice of life for Geminis and they do not like being pinned down physically, mentally or emotionally. They have to keep moving.
  • Geminis come across as Mercurial – quick, clever and eternally young. Their ability to communicate makes whatever they say sound interesting. Other people are keen to listen to their ideas.
  • Geminis’ strength lies in their communication skills. However, they tend to skim across the surface of things. They may get the gist of what is going on, but they do not always understand the true heart of the matter.


Geminis are attracted to careers that allow them to exercise their mental abilities and communication skills. They are also looking for variety and mobility as they are not so keen on being pinned down to a single location. They may not want to move too far from their own community or neighbourhood, and they will be happy staying close to their local area so long as they can enjoy frequent changes of scene.

Geminis do well as couriers, journalists, interpreters, translators, teachers & instructors and they are good at creating links and connections. They are often found in networking, sales and marketing roles.


ROMANTIC One-to-one long-term commitment is not something that Geminis find easy because it feels static and stagnant. If their relationships are to last, they need the time and space to go where they want when they want.

FRIENDSHIP Geminis make fun companions – they love to chat and gossip. Catch them at a good time and they will be on top form as an interesting and informative communicator. But on a bad day they can be two-faced and superficial.

FAMILY Geminis are natural brothers and sisters – this is the sign of the twins after all! Most of their connections with other people are tinged with a sibling or school-pal type quality.

PROFESSIONAL Geminis contribute ideas and communication skills but they can be difficult to pin down. They are good at creating networks, links and connections.

KEY RELATIONSHIP Gemini’s key relationship would have to be with someone or something of ongoing interest to them. There may also be a special sibling, cousin or school pal type connection which fills the role of “twin” in their life.


Gemini Mums and Dads can feel more like siblings than parents and they come in very handy when it is time to write an essay or get the homework done. But they might get a bit bored by the more repetitive tasks involved in child-rearing. They will be keen for their kids to learn to look after the less interesting areas of their daily routine.

If you become a parent to a Gemini child, you had better get proficient in the art of answering back. These little clever clogs will be quick to confuse you with their crafty quiz sessions. Even though you set out determined to hold true to your own opinions, somehow they will end up turning the tables and imposing their ideas on you!


Gemini health problems tend to come from the chest area. It is important that this sign takes time to breathe deeply in order to release any tension in the diaphragm. Information overload and a tendency to talk about feelings rather than experience them can create mental problems like insomnia or stress-based depression.


As having money tends to make life more interesting and varied Gemini ideas often create financial success. This sign is not particularly interested in wealth for its own sake, but Geminis’ natural ability to communicate, network, market and sell helps them sustain a favourable financial flow.


The Third Zodiac Sign is interested in information. Curious, communicative and keen to keep up with the latest news, this sign is made for processing and passing on facts and figures. Excellent at making connections between one point and another, 3rd sign people are natural networkers within their communities. Education, sales, journalism, travel and couriering provide some of the suitable slots for these quick and clever individuals.


The Gemini House is seen as the early learning centre of the horoscope. It describes the ability to study, process, interpret and communicate information. It is about childhood experiences with siblings, cousins, playmates, school pals and teachers. It is also about making connections within peer groups, communities and neighbourhoods.


Gemini is an ideal ascendant for someone in the role of courier, educational course provider, sales person, middle-man or link-maker. Those born when the sign of Gemini was rising in the East come across as interested and interesting. They create a first impression of someone who is inquisitive and eager to learn.

But they can also seem as though they have plenty of other things to do and many other places to be, which might be disconcerting if you are trying to carry out a conversation with them – especially on a topic that does not appeal to them! It may feel like trying to pin down a teenager who just wants to run off to meet their mates.


As an Air Sign, Gemini has an affinity with the suit of SWORDS which represents energy that is abstract and intellectual. Swords are about ideas, information and communication.

Swords can also symbolise the presence of conflict between different points of view. Trust issues arise when data that is delivered is discovered to be unreal, unreliable or untrue.


Gemini is a Yang Sign ruled by Planet Mercury (called Hermes in Greek mythology) who is messenger to the Gods and God of the marketplace. His influence gives Geminis their talent for communication and their ability to process information. He also makes this sign a natural at networking, news-gathering and wheeling & dealing!

According to mythology, Mercury’s most serious task was to accompany souls as they departed life on their journey into the Underworld. Geminis are sometimes accused of being superficial but in fact they are versatile, as we can see from the legend of the winged messenger. Like him Geminis have a serious side which they might express by communicating about very deep and serious subjects.



Gemini Element is Air and Quality is Mutable

This combination makes the 3rd zodiac sign quick to learn and interested in a variety of subjects. Geminis need mental stimulation as they become bored without something to hold their attention. And a bored Gemini can be very mischievous!

Which is when they might start making things up, spreading rumours or telling tall stories simply to stir some life into the gossip cauldron. They may not expect their words to take hold, or to leave a lasting impression and they can be quite surprised when they are called to account for what they have said.


Astrology suggests that it is easier for the three signs within one Element to get on together, as the energy which drives them comes from the same source. But this does not mean that relationships between signs from different elements are doomed to fail, although it might take longer for them to understand and accommodate the differences between them.

GEMINI with FIRE SIGNS ARIES, LEO & SAGITTARIUS  Fire is naturally attracted to Air and generally speaking, these elements complement each other very well. Timing is important however, as things can happen too fast and misunderstandings may occur, especially if both partners are distracted by interests outside the relationship.

GEMINI with EARTH SIGNS TAURUS, VIRGO & CAPRICORN Pair-ups between Earth and Air Signs can be rather dry unless there are shared interests, ideals and activities to provide the passion. But both elements are interested in getting to grips with the logical side of life.

GEMINI with FELLOW AIR SIGNS LIBRA & AQUARIUS Air Signs share an interest in ideas, information and communication, but if everyone is speaking their own words or thinking their own thoughts, then who is listening? This can be a rather unfeeling combination unless both partners make a point of declaring their inner emotions.

GEMINI with WATER SIGNS CANCER, SCORPIO & PISCES The elements of Air and Water can work well when there is a sharing of creative insight. Air signs help the water signs to put their ideas into words, and water signs help air signs to express their imagination. But there are times when the emotional intensity of water is like an alien language which air finds difficult to interpret.


Traditional Astrology used to believe that it would be difficult for the four signs within one Quality to get on together. Actually they are perfectly capable of bringing out the best in one another. But relationships between them can be challenging for both partners, as disagreements could arise when their energies clash or turn confrontational.

GEMINI with FELLOW MUTABLE SIGNS VIRGO, SAGITTARIUS & PISCES These four signs share an ability to adjust and adapt to changing circumstances which ensures that life remains mobile and interesting. Difficulties would be caused by a lack of focus, or an inability to be clear about what both partners expected from the relationship between them. It is possible that they could wander off in diverse directions without identifying when, where, how and why they were going to meet up again!

MUTABLE SIGN GEMINI with CARDINAL SIGNS ARIES, CANCER, LIBRA & CAPRICORNIt is a question of priorities. Once they have identified a specific target, Cardinal signs make it their overriding objective and aim their energies towards achieving it. Mutable signs tend to lack focus as their main motivation is to find variety and diversity in life. But Mutable signs could help their Cardinal pals to keep a range of options open rather than pursuing just one route, while Cardinal signs can ensure that their Mutable partners concentrate on one goal at a time.

MUTABLE SIGN GEMINI with FIXED SIGNS TAURUS, LEO, SCORPIO & AQUARIUS It is a question of intensity. Fixed Signs have a habit of giving their all to whatever they have chosen as their mission in life. Mutable signs seek a wide range of interests and prefer not to get bogged down in any single issue. Fixed signs could help their Mutable friends to go deeper and get more involved while Mutable signs can persuade their Fixed partners to lighten up and take things less seriously.


The Zodiac Band is divided into 12 equal sections of 30 degrees. Each of the Twelve Zodiac Signs is sub-divided into Three Decans of 10 degrees, or about 10 days. The decans are based on the element of the sign.

The first decan of Gemini is the strongest as it is a double dose of the same zodiac sign energies and characteristics. The second and third decans are modified by the qualities and traits of the other two signs belonging to the element of Air – Libra & Aquarius.


0 to 9.59 degrees of Gemini (first ten days of the sign)

This is the fastest and most flexible section of the sign. Gemini energy in the First Decan flickers between situations and subjects and is particularly resistant to being pinned down. This genre of Gemini craves the variety it needs to satisfy its curiosity and fascination for facts. First Decan Geminis like to keep moving, but the territory they are travelling around does not have to be huge, so long as their local community or neighbourhood supplies them with enough information to keep them amused.

The Mercury influence on this Decan supplies the quicksilver quality of this type of Gemini. With clever brains that ingest information on the fly plus a gift for multi-tasking this lot find it difficult to sit still for a second. They are best to operate in short bursts alternated with power naps to help them avoid insomnia or other sleep problems.


10 to 19.59 degrees of Gemini (middle ten days of the sign)

Geminis of this Decan are the silver-tongued salesmen of the sign. They are persuasive and convincing, with a talent for telling people what they want to hear. Genuinely interested in others, this type of Gemini can listen as well as they can talk. They make good go-betweens and messengers as they are particularly skilled at conveying information from one source to another.

The Venusian influence on this kind of Gemini indicates a flair for diplomacy and negotiation. Second Decan Geminis have a communication style which is credible yet tactful, giving the impression that all viewpoints have been carefully considered. Seemingly sincere, it is difficult to resist their way with words although it would be wise to check that the promises they have made are definitely deliverable!


20 to 29.59 degrees of Gemini (last ten days of the sign)

This is Gemini energy at its most brainy. Already into information, this sector of the sign notches up levels of intelligence and understanding. This type of Gemini could struggle to stay on the same page as less astute thinkers. They are more likely to streak ahead and reach conclusions far faster than their fellows. Mental boredom could be a challenge for them as most people’s chat is simply not up to their standards.

The innovative influence of Uranus on this Decan brings an ability to think original thoughts and comprehend ground-breaking concepts. Taking an old-hat idea, turning it on its head and presenting it from a fresh angle comes naturally to Third Decan Geminis who are very happy communicating virtually, via a variety of techno gadgets. But some of their futuristic visions are the stuff of science fiction, ahead of their time and incompatible with the limitations of current day realities.
