The Zodiac sign of Gemini the twins 22nd May – 21st June

You are Gemini if you were born between 22nd May and 21st June. If you were born on the first or last day of this sign, then you may feel an affinity with the characteristics of Taurus (previous sign) or Cancer (following sign). This may be to do with your Moon sign, or your actual Sun sign, if the affinity is with the previous sign. (See Precession of the Equinoxes).

The Gemini character

Gemini is a Positive and Mutable Air sign, so there will be a quick energy in this person, along with mental agility, and a restless air of nervous energy. Geminians are often dextrous too, gesticulating to emphasise their speech, and may also be fleet of foot. Communication means everything to Gemini, and they love to chat, gossip, and generally pass the time of day. They are inquisitive and show a lively interest in others’ goings on. The internet age suits them entirely, as they love all types of social media, and are often prolific ‘posters’. When Gemini enters a peopled space, they will quickly scan it to see if there is anyone there that they know, and will notice everything about their surroundings. Often beset by worries about making the right decisions, the duality of their nature means that they see both sides of a proposition, and may regret making one decision instead of another. Geminis can make good actors, as they are adept at hiding their true self and ‘becoming’ someone else. This is part of their nature, and they can be described as ‘two-faced’, especially if they are inclined to gossip. They may also find it a challenge to complete tasks, often lacking concentration, and having many projects on the go.


The Air of Gemini is Mutable and Positive, being the rushing wind soughing through the treetops. Their Positive, Mutable nature can make them quixotic, and frequently temperamental. They will often be spontaneous in their actions, being generally reactive, rather than proactive, but will tackle a project with gusto if it absorbs their interest.


If you are Gemini, then the above is just one aspect of your astrological make-up, as there are many other signs which will influence you, depending upon their position at the time of your birth. The most important influence comes from your Moon sign.
