What is Gemini? What are the basic traits of Gemini? Importance of Gemini in Zodiac Signs? Part - 2


The nature in general:

Gemini (the twins) is a very complex and confusing sign. The person born under Gemini sign will be well versed and learned; and reservoirs of many kinds of arts and sciences. Brihat Jataka describe the native of Gemini sign of sharp intellect, well skilled, capable of discovering the thoughts of other men, message carrier, expert of many shastras, fond of women, fond of music and dance, having sweet speech, great eater and join in sexual union with hermaphrodites. Jataka Parijata, another classic of Vedic Astrology said that the native will blessed with long life, skillful in amorous pleasures ad having a fondness of jest and merriment. According to Saravali the native will have the auspicious lines of a fish on the palm and will be fond of worldly pleasures.

Natives can seem to some people like a wonderful friend, while to others he will seem two faced and sneaky. They will act like a child for most of their life. That includes both the good and bad characteristics of children. They will be happy and energetic when things go right for them. However, when things go wrong, they can be passively aggressive and very mean. They will find decisions hard to make, since they can never stay with the one that they originally choose. They will tend so fight loosing battles for something that they call a “moral” cause, quality and that will be the ability to lie and appear that they are telling the complete truth. They prefer to use someone else’s solution to a problem than thinking of their own. Many of Gemini’s poorer traits will be due to their lack of self-esteem. It will be very tough to and they cannot concentrate on any particular thing at one time. They may be praising somebody but at the same time they will be thinking against him or her. But the most intelligent people on the earth are Geminians.

Gemini will have great mind. They will be fast learners and interested in a great variety of topics, so they accumulate a large store of knowledge. Additionally, they will have the ability to communicate their knowledge vey well and make great conversationalists. They need the stimulation of moving like a butterfly from one thing that catches their interest to the next. They will not get stuck for long in one place and will always be ready for a new challenge. This will give them flexibility. A drawback of their fascination with details will be that they might miss the bigger picture. They excel in all fields involving the written or spoken word.

Geminis will be extremely independent. They will not be pinned down by anyone or any rules. They need to experience the world on their own. Change and freedom will be extremely important for them. They will never let anyone dictate them and they will be extremely independent; and freedom will be essential for their mental wellbeing. Generally they will like to be at home but still they will have many friends. They will make very interesting and exciting friends. They will like to leave their mark on everyone they meet. They will be very flightly and will disappear for a long time as they meet new friends and explore new places. But when they come back, they will have new thoughts, opinions and interesting things to share and ideas to teach. With a Gemini friend one can experience a very interesting life which will be full of fun of every type. If one needs any advice, Gemini will be the best friend to asks. They will be masters of communication and they can help to get one what he or she need by helping him or her with persuasion and enthusiasm, and they will give good advice too. However if one need long term help, support and follow up one should not a bog a Gemini down with all of his or her emotional problems as they will not want to deal with it because it depress them and steps on their freedom. A Gemini friend can fill one with the latest gossip and if one love conversation, the Gemini will deliver with great pleasure. They will be very generous with their friends and will spend lots of time with them; and share everything. Even though Gemini is a social butterfly, they always need time for themselves and that should be respected.

Gemini natives will be fond of opposite sex and like to move in their company. Man or Woman, Gemini will be impatient with conservative, stick in the mud or with people who can not make up their minds where they stand on particular issues. The will be able to do two things at a time with less effort than it takes most of other natives to do one. Usually they will be the most punctual and will always arrive late in meetings because of their dual nature. As these natives will have very sharp memory, they will not forget the meeting time but in the way some other th8ings will catch their interest and they will forget their actual meeting or arrive late at the venue of the meeting. Although the characteristic Gemini quickness of mind and mental agility may appear as unsteadiness to others, nevertheless the thought process will be logical and orderly. Their ability to express original ideas with subtlety can leave opponents utterly flabbergasted and bamboozled.

One of the biggest problems for a native born in Gemini to overcome will be the dual mindedness given by the sign which encourages the changing of the mind, or decisions, large or small, with no apparent reason, either to themselves or to others, and thereby irritating, more than harming, other people. A Gemini will sometimes give some thing and, perhaps the next day, for no reason at all, will refuse to give. It is how you got the reputation of being contentious and hard to get along with. Some of Geminians will love to stir up trouble and then go away and laugh about it. With all this odd behavior one will find Gemini as a loving and caring, almost material in their actions toward those who are down or in need. Geminians are very versatile.

Mythologically, the heavenly twins known as Castor and Pollex divided their time between living on Earth and living in Heaven; this is indicative of a certain quality in the Geminian, the quality of being able to live in a pure abstract, or fantasy world and at the same time they will turn their hand to any task no matter how simple or hard. They collect wit and knowledge where ever they find it, although it could be only surface knowledge or short lived. They will be forever young with a playful and endearing personality; not wanting to spend much time alone, they will hunt up for their fun and companions. They will have a lively imagination and therefore will be one of the most creative of all the signs. They should use it in entertaining them self or actually inventing something.

Geminians will be great juggler of people and/or situations and can keep a tricky issue up in the air until it looks like they will lose it all, then they appear in another place, still juggling. They will have a great gift of gab and can talk their way out of almost everything, even to the point of making others doubt their very eyes. They may be prone to a touch of paranoia, looking over their shoulder and feeling that the world will find them out. Some of them should guard against being a chatterbox or telling other peoples secrets; learn to respect their own goals and dreams and realize that they are worth every minute spent to obtain them.

Geminian will have the ability to react instantly to situations, and as a result, they will have a very nervous temperament. The typical Gemini will make instant decisions and go into action while most of the people around him are still polishing their skills. They can be compared to a wound up spring as they attempt to absorb everything they can about their surroundings at once. They share with Virgo, Aries, Leo and Scorpio a built in ability to deal with emergencies. The fact that they enjoy various situations and people add to their nervousness and that means they will almost constantly wound up. However, if they experience boredom and have nothing to survey, they will get the same emotions, the need for excitement and variety. This is the Gemini duality, constantly conflicting emotions in one spontaneous, excitable package.

One downfall of Gemini will be their superficiality. Instead of looking deep into a person’s real qualities, Gemini will judge a person by the way they treat them. This can lead Gemini to have wrong impressions of people and can cause problems in relationships. Gemini’s can have feeling of discouragement and moodiness although they never allow this to be seen by anyone but their closest friends or family. Gemini usually want everyone to think that they are always happy and doing wonderfully and stress never affects them. Almost every Gemini speaks understands or reads more than one language and one way or another, the Gemini will triumph with words. Sometimes the Mercury tendency to fool people can lead to dishonesty or criminal activity but it happen occasionally. Although their talents can tempt an occasional Gemini to live in a web of lies and deception, most of them are too idealistic for a life of crime.
