The Gemini Twins

Balancing Your Sylph and Your Nerd.

Hey there Gemini. Wow, it’s been a tough year for you! Your usual inquisitive, bubbly, uber chatty self has been forced to embrace the other side of your twin, the introverted, reflective, nervous-nelly side. Yikes! Too much time inside that head of yours has been kind of dizzying. There’s been a lot of adjusting between both your inside voices.

BTW, chatting out loud to yourself is really starting to wear thin on your Virgo partner. He doesn't understand the need to vocalize the many random thoughts in your head. Go figure? Well, a girls gotta entertain herself and get through this pandemic somehow, right? Of course right! I knew you'd agree with me.

Now, take a big breath of that sweet, warm spring air! Ah, it's invigorating and exciting! You feel yourself and your world opening up like those buds on the trees and bursting like the bright colors from the myriad of blossoms. This is it! It’s time to shine again.

So, put away your drab, worn-out sweatshirts and find your brightest sleeveless shirt. Throw on those shorts…okay, maybe hop in the shower with a razor first? Then, dig in that closet and find your collection of flip-flops. You're on the move, girl. Let's go be fierce and fearless.

But before we head out into the spectacular future that is awaiting you, let's bring along your introverted and reflective side. Yeah, I know, she's a bit of a buzzkill! But she kept you sane for the past year, and you guys accomplished some awesome new things that are just beginning to really see positive rewards.

That first children's book you wrote. The spin-off potential from that has been fantastic, and it revived your love of writing again. And the new camera your Virgo partner bought you was genius! First, it got you out of the house, so he didn’t have to listen to your incessant chatter! And secondly, it’s starting to pay off in some fabulous photos.

There’s another reason you need to keep your more reserved twin with you. Your extroverted self can get just a tad carried away sometimes. Those pretty summer drinks with the fruit and little umbrellas are delicious but dangerous. So, keep aware of your surroundings while you're on your gadabouts! And don’t even get me started on campfires and Limoncello! Girlfriend, just put the bottle down!

When you combine your two sides, your yin and yang, there’s no stopping you. Set your sights on your goals, be creative and productive. Make sure you’re growing your financial future at the same time. When you combine the best of your psyche, you will soon see amazing results.

Your natural curiosity and sense of wonder are great gifts. Every day you discover something new; that flower that bloomed overnight, the pebble on the beach that nature scribbled a message on. You see fabulous creatures in the clouds and use them to formulate stories in your head. Your air fairy is drawn to the water, where open-air breezes and blue skies burst into magnificent sunsets that fuel your imagination.

Be aware of the oppression of closed spaces. Panic sets in when you feel trapped, even by nature if you’re surrounded by mountains or hills. You find darkness claustrophobic. You need to know you can climb out into the light. Similarly, being stuck inside any dwelling without the ability to go explore and move in open-air spaces paralyzes your Gemini soul. Anxiety sets in, productivity and your will to try declines. If you find yourself stuck, physically or metaphorically, breathe, and use imagery to help talk yourself out of the perceived threat. Yes, we all know you're going to do this out loud, and that's okay. Get your Virgo dude some headphones and carry on. It's better to be thought of as a crazy woman than to let your mood spiral into depression. Remember one of your motto's, "I've always been crazy, but it’s kept me from going insane!” 😜 Thank you, Waylon Jennings.

An anxious Gemini can benefit from the 5, 4, 3, 2, 1, Coping Technique. Acknowledge the Five things you see around you. Four things you can touch. Three things you can hear. Two things you can smell. And finally, One thing you can taste. Hopefully, now you feel a little more in control…and speaking of control, put DOWN that bag of kettle-cooked chips. You were supposed to TASTE, not polish off the entire bag. 👀

Looking toward the future, your creativity will be in full swing this year, stretching well into 2022. So, snap those photos, commit to writing every day, paint those whimsical beach pebbles and spread your creativity for others to enjoy. Do things that keep your right brain engaged, dynamic, and fluid. Your financial future is linked to your imagination, education, and positivity. They are essential to unlocking the possibilities heading into a very profitable 2022.

Don't ignore your left-brain twin; you will need to pay close attention to balancing the budget. Yes, we know, she's annoying and squishes your spontaneity, but you really don't need that new dress covered in butterflies. Seriously, where would you wear that? 🤷‍♂️ You should put that money into your savings account for something you actually need. Once your financial woes are all finally settled, you can relax and enjoy life.

Your Air Fairy, your Sylph, will be free to do what she does best and flutter away, getting into good mischief. So, embrace the new energy that surrounds you. She will let you soar to new heights that you know you’re ready for. You’ve earned it. Now go out and make it happen. This is your season; this is your year!
