The Personality Traits of a Gemini
Geminis love to express themselves and are always quick with a funny response. However, there are two sides to the Gemini personality, and people can never be sure which one they will be addressing. On the one hand, Geminis love to be sociable, spend time with friends, and generally have fun. However, on the other hand, they can very quickly become serious and analytical, and give things a great deal of thought. Geminis find the world a fascinating place and are eager to experience everything life has to offer, but will often feel as if there is simply not enough time to do so.
As mentioned, Geminis are Air signs, together with Libra and Aquarius, which means that the sign is connected to every aspect of the mind. Mercury, the ruling planet, is representative of communication, writing and movement. It is a sign of mixed blessings; Geminis are continually looking for new friends, contacts, and people to share experiences with, but this may come from a deep feeling of missing their other half.
However, this zest for life and desire to continually explore and expand makes Geminis excellent creators, in particular in regards to the written word, and they can also be fantastic team players thanks to their communication skills. Furthermore, these same character traits often make Geminis inspirational people to be around who can drive others to try new things and expand their horizons.
It is not for nothing that the twins are the symbol of Geminis. They are the twins Pullox and Castor, who in Greek mythology were twins with different fathers. Castor was the mortal son of the King of Sparta while Pollux was the divine son of Zeus. According to the tale, they were born from the same egg and when mortal Castor was killed, Pollux then asked Zeus to let him share his immortality with his brother so that they could stay together. The two were then transformed into the constellation Gemini.
The twins are representative of the two sides of a Gemini’s personality. They also reveal another characteristic, that of selfless caring. Just as Pullox was prepared to make sacrifices for his brother, so are Geminis ready to go the extra mile for their friends. Geminis also look to heal, they seek to make a difference and bring people together, no matter their backgrounds or the differences between them.
As with any person, Geminis have a blend of strengths and weaknesses. They have many positive personality traits that they are able to harness. For instance, Geminis are known to be very funny and can use their humour to lighten an uncomfortable situation while remaining sensitive to the people around them. This is also due to their ability to see both sides of a situation and focus on the positives.
Building on this is their ability to communicate clearly and engagingly. Geminis can keep their audience engaged and read people well enough to be able to adjust what they are saying to the individual. They are quick to think and are able to absorb vast amounts of information and express it clearly.
This also means that Geminis tend to be multitalented. They are able to master many different skills across a wide range of fields and quickly assimilate new knowledge. An added benefit of this is that Geminis are able to adapt quickly to new situations. Their open minds ensure that they are able to adjust to new circumstances and also change their opinions on important matters when presented with new information.
All of these traits also aid creativity and the speed with which Geminis are able to think and adapt often translates to boundless energy. However, there are of course some downsides to all of this.
While Geminis are innately positive, they do tire out and will often need alone time to recharge their batteries and take stock of things. Without this, they can become grumpy and quick to snap, revealing a darker side to their personality, which others may not have been aware of.
Furthermore, Geminis’ gift for communication can be a double-edged sword for those around them. It can also make them manipulative and their ability to use words means that they are very good at finding a way of getting what they want. They will have an answer for everything and will not back down easily.
As noted, Geminis are able to learn fast, but they are so eager to experience new things that it can mean that they quickly forget about prior plans and promises. It is also possible that they will quickly jump at what they perceive to be a ‘better option’ and in doing so let down others who they have already made plans with.
Geminis’ duality can also land them in trouble. They may speak first and think later, and then need to cover their back. It is in these kind of tricky situations where a Gemini’s manipulative abilities may come to the fore.
However, there is no such thing as an entirely positive personality. By being aware of these tendencies, Geminis are able to harness their abilities for good, which remains their overriding character trait.
How Geminis Treat Love and Relationships
Geminis love verbal communication and that is why their relationships will often have their seeds planted in engaging conversations. Furthermore, verbal communication is likely to be equally important as physical contact throughout the relationship. This can also result a great deal of verbal flirting and fun, as Geminis will often use this as a way to weed out those who do not match their intellect or energy.
In addition to strong communication, Geminis will also need variety and passion, and when they find someone who can supply it all, be it in the form of a friend or lover, they will be extremely faithful and loyal through thick and thin.
Many of a Gemini’s strengths can pose a challenge to relationships. Geminis are always looking for new things and are quick to learn. However, this means that they can become bored in relationships and stability can feel like a burden rather than a fulfilment. Geminis have a drive that keeps them moving at all times, which unfortunately can make it very hard for them to settle down or to find others who are able to keep up with them.
Gemini women can go from being passionate and gentle to distant and cold in a moment. This is due to a Gemini’s natural tendency to stay safe and protect themselves. Gemini women are not shy but do take time to commit. As noted, once a Gemini finds a partner who can satisfy her intellectually and physically, then she will become fiercely loyal.
Gemini men exhibit many of the same traits. They will be enthusiastic and full of life, which means that they will need a partner who is equally energetic and dynamic, always looking for fun. However, Gemini men can appear to be inconsistent and they will always cherish their personal space, even when in a committed relationship.
This doesn’t mean that Geminis are unable to find partners. There are many who are able to keep pace, spend the time building a strong foundation, and adapt to new situations. Geminis often find themselves drawn to Taurus, who represent stability. However, these relationships are likely to fail as a Taurus would rather remain anchored.
The signs that tend to work best with Gemini are Libra and Sagittarius. Gemini can learn from the wisdom of Libra while Libra will enjoy Geminis humour. Sagittarius and Gemini will find that they can build incredibly strong bonds and the two will likely be drawn together naturally. The relationship will have a strong intellectual connection and they will build deep emotions and real trust from this. As long as the two individuals are ready to embrace their instinctive emotional responses, then a relationship has the potential to be hugely successful.
Geminis’ Approach to Career and Money
As one of the strongest traits in a Gemini is their desire to keep moving and find new stimulation, whatever career a Gemini pursues must satisfy these needs and present a continual challenge. Geminis are skilful people, always ready to take in more information and apply it; they are creative and inventive, and often very clever. This means that they need dynamic working environments with plenty of social contact throughout the day. As a result, Geminis are often drawn to careers in law, finance, journalism, teaching, or anything else that allows them the opportunity to communicate with others while continually moving, growing, and vitally, staying busy. Geminis are particularly good at multitasking, problem solving, and kick-starting new projects, meaning that they need a job that won’t become a repetitive routine and leave them feeling bored, uninspired and stale.
A Gemini’s restlessness may mean that they fail to work out careful budgets and this can lead to difficulties. However, as they are innately resourceful, these difficulties are usually short lived and on the whole, Geminis tend to be financially stable. They will sometimes struggle between spending on necessities and pleasure, and the desire for adventure can lead to frivolous spending if left unchecked. Furthermore, Geminis tend to view money as a necessary evil, and they do not dwell on how they earn it or spend it. While this may sound like a negative, a Gemini’s need for money combined with their energy and skillset, can often lead to rapid advancement up the career ladder to higher paid positions.
For example, as a strong communicator, a Gemini will not shy away from making presentations or presenting ideas, verbally or in written form. This will help them come to the attention of their higher-ups in an entirely positive way.
On the other hand, Geminis need to be aware that they struggle to stay focused on one task for an extended period. They may love the excitement of starting a new project and getting things moving, but find it difficult to remain focused and get the project finished once the initial excitement has worn off.
Similarly, a Gemini will not mind working long hours if the project interest them. However, if it doesn’t, then they are likely to find it hard to stay motivated and keep to deadlines. Geminis will instinctively see the workplace as an opportunity to make new friends and connections, but will need to temper this with the need to get work done.
This of course has many positive sides. Geminis tend to be excellent at collaborative projects and they will easily form friendships with their co-workers. At the same time, they have a need for independence, which means that they are best in roles where managers keep their distance and any instances of micromanagement could lead to real conflict.
Geminis will feel fulfilled at work when they earn the respect of their colleagues. While they will be interested in earning enough money to ensure they have the freedom to explore and pursue other interests, of greater importance is the ability to connect with those around them. A good job for a Gemini will be intellectually challenging and give them opportunity to spend time with clever, lively people. Money will be secondary to this. Therefore, Geminis should do their best to stay away from solitary occupations.
How Geminis Respond to Friends and Family
Family is of the upmost important to a Gemini, in particular their own children who they will build very strong emotional bonds with and grow very close to. While they may appear to show a lack of stability to their partners and demand a lot from them, this certainly does not apply to their family. When sharing a home, they are able to be calm and understanding, and cohabit with relative ease.
There is no escaping the fact that family life comes with a great deal of responsibility and it also requires repetitive routine, which Geminis struggle with. However, Geminis’ innate caring nature and the emotional bonds they form with their family are able to overcome these challenges, and they will find raising children to be extremely rewarding.
This bond is not as easily formed with friends and it can make a Gemini appear to be a somewhat neglectful person. For instance, they are likely to forget birthdays, as they are continually seeking the new and inspiring. However, Geminis will certainly make up for it and feel a great deal of guilt for having caused any offense.
Geminis are great people to hang out with. They are sharp, funny, and can keep a conversation going for hours on end with never a dull moment. A Gemini’s tendency to be slightly unpredictable can make them very appealing to others who are looking to relax and have some fun. Furthermore, Geminis’ ability to focus means that when they are spending time with someone, they give them the attention that they deserve and their ability to read people means that they can often provide very insightful advice. However, others may feel as if it takes them longer to truly get to know a Gemini, as they are complex people whose motivations may seem incomprehensible. Furthermore, while Geminis love getting to know others, they tend to want to protect themselves.
While it may take some time for a Gemini to let others in, there are many reasons why Geminis make fantastic friends. As noted, they are full of fun and this will help others to push themselves to realise their dreams. Furthermore, Geminis tend to love culture; they will absorb books, films, plays, and music, and will always have recommendations and be up for going and trying something new. Furthermore, as Geminis are highly observant, they are able to make others feel valued.
As noted, Geminis tend to be outgoing and sociable people, so it is no surprise that there is a large number of celebrity Geminis. Here is a look at some of the most famous of them and their traits that show they are truly Gemini.
The famous actress Natalie Portman was born on June 9 and she exhibits many of the traits of a Gemini. In addition to being an extremely talented actress, Portman is also a gifted academic. Geminis are known for their love of learning and so it is no surprise that Portman found the time to do a psychology degree at Harvard while in the middle of her career.
When asked about this she responded, “I don’t care if college ruins my career … I’d rather be smart than a movie star.” It is clear that she is an intelligent, hard-working, gifted, stubborn, and brave woman, all of which are classic signs of a Gemini.
Born in Australia on 7 June 1990, Iggy Azalea has had an amazing career as a rapper and songwriter since she moved to the US when she was 16. It is clear that being a Gemini is important to Azalea as she occasionally Tweets about her Gemini traits. Furthermore, she is not afraid to embrace the harder aspects of being a Gemini, “If you wanna know what’s wrong with Gemini, I’ll tell you; we say shit & change our minds all the time (plans, emotions, etc) for literally no reason, we are fake experts at everything & we tell mean jokes then don’t give you space to be mad.”
Azalea has come under a lot of criticism for saying and doing whatever she wants, in true Gemini fashion, and she has been labelled inappropriate, culturally insensitive, and even a racist. She acknowledges her impulsiveness and once said, “[Some things] You look back at it with love, and there are other things you were like, 'Oh God, I was such an idiot.”
The actor and dancer Tom Holland was born 1 June 1996. He exhibits classic Gemini enthusiasm for life and always seems to be upbeat. At the same time, it is clear he isn’t too bothered by what anyone else thinks of him. He was reportedly bullied at school for his love of dancing but for him, it was the best form of creative expression. His Gemini energy kept him moving and he soon found himself a musical star and then one of the best-known young actors in Hollywood.
Kanye West was born on 8 June 1977 and his list of professions shows just how much energy he has. West has tried his hand at entrepreneurship, fashion, rapping, song writing, record producing, and more. He is certainly a confident man and he has proclaimed himself the “voice of this generation”. While people have accused him of being narcissistic due to his outgoing personality and confidence, there is no denying the man’s success.
Kanye West thrives on being the centre of attention and he is always quick to speak his mind. While it does result in a great deal of criticism, he has shown himself capable of learning and growing, in true Gemini fashion.
Donald Trump, born 14 June 1946, needs no introduction. From businessman to television personality to President of the United States, the man has certainly shown that he has boundless energy and real drive. Many consider Trump to be an excellent demonstration of Geminis’ ability to lie. He will twist facts and use half-truths to get the upper hand in a debate and always speaks with complete confidence and conviction. While this may not be the most attractive of Gemini traits, there is no arguing with the fact that it has brought the man a huge amount of success.
