I realised that I always tend to describe myself as a typical Gemini but never explain why I think that way, so I decided I’d write a little bit about astrology and me.
First a little about Gemini in general.
A Gemini is born between May 22-June 21, the astrological symbol is The Twins, their ruling planet is Mercury and their element is air.
The main personality traits of a Gemini include being jovial, good communicators, inquisitive and flexible, but they can also be selfish, restless, have a confused personality and find it hard to be on time.
Quite of a few of those traits belong to me.
I’m quite an upbeat person. I’m one of those annoying people who tend to be always happy and smiling and don’t let things get to them quite badly.
I’m definitely inquisitive. I love to understand the world around me. There’s SO much to learn!
Flexible? I’ve done gymnastics since childhood so I think it’s safe to say I’m flexible
I suppose I can be a little selfish. I was an only child for so long. I love my baby brother to pieces but kinda hate having to share Jade Rachel. And don’t like sticky toddler hands on my things. Hey, I’m a teenager! LOL
The element of air is all about the power of the mind, the force of intellect, inspiration, imagination. It is ideas, knowledge, dreams and wishes.
Which, as I said, i’m an inquisitive kind of girl. I love knowledge and learning and like to think I’m quite smart. Humble too 😉
A ruling planet of Mercury means you find it easy to make new connections, and others love your ability to pull ideas and people together.
I’m certainly not afraid of people and will talk to anyone, make friends quite easily. I seem to naturally take the lead in group projects and love working with people. Yes, I know it’s possible I could look at any star sign and find things that reflect me but I happen to believe in astrology. Not horoscopes that are in the paper, those are broad and fit everyone. But I do think that aspects of a persons personality can be explained by the positions of the sun, moon, and other planetary objects at the time of their birth. Historically, astrology was a science, it was in the realm of scholars. It was accepted in political and academic contexts, and was connected with other studies, such as astronomy, alchemy, meteorology, and medicine. I don’t know about the fortune telling and predicting the future aspect of astrology but I do think astronomical phenomenon can affect a persons behaviour. Just look at how the pull of the moon (lunatic) and the seasons can affect peoples moods (SAD).
