Gemini described: The sign Gemini rises with its head, it is represented by a couple (male and female) holding a mace and a lute; it resides in the West and its element is air, it is biped, is strong in the night, resides in villages and is windy in temperament; it has an even body and its hue is grass green. Its Lord is Mercury.

Gemini is ruled by Mercury, and its symbol is the Twins. Gemini is an Air sign, analytical and ever-changing. Intelligent, communicative, and non-conformist are the qualities that best describe those born under the sign of Gemini. The influence of Mercury on the intellect give Gemini native a thirst for learning and knowledge, which in turn they wish to tell everyone about. Their quick imagination and wit allows them to jump from one topic to another in conversation and they can keep an audience riveted with their charm, originality and mental agility.

Gemini native are often moody and unpredictable; hence the dual quality of their personality. They constantly crave variety and new stimulus, and are prone to depression if this urge is not satisfied.

However, Gemini native quick thinking and gift for improvisation can save the day by allowing them to creatively turn their negative tendencies into potentials for success.
