The Gemini Enigma

by Kyra Lopez about a month ago in pop culture

What traits encompass the Gemini sign? How does our future look?

I am a Gemini. One of the most hated signs of the zodiac.

Time and time again, I have encountered multiple skeptics on my supposed trustworthiness. Apparently I am a snake, and my personality will morph itself into a demonic entity the minute I let "Gemini" slip past my tongue. My outward behavior is automatically put in a high court of the zodiac rule, and I am most likely going to be found guilty of all charges. It's pretty brutal, I'll say that!

Revealing that you are "Gemini" often results in some visibly negative responses during casual conversation, along with a whole lot of questioning! Geminis are often the cause of everyone's eye-rolling, groans, or long sighs when people discover that they are in close vicinity to one. They have officially earned their place as the most hated sign on the list of the zodiac.

But...should this really be the case? Are we actually deserving of all this hate?

My answer to that question is a solid NO. I have to defend the Gemini name, somehow!

I was born on May 23, just at the start of the Gemini season. I have no control over this date, season, moon cycle, etc. Being a Gemini was a label bestowed onto me the minute I entered this world. As a result, I am forced to carry around this ball and chain for the rest of my life. Yet at the same time, I don't feel that my sign is all doom and gloom. While most people assume that we are flighty, chatty, and unpredictable, it's more complicated than that. I have learned that there is an abundance of positive Gemini traits under the surface! Most of these aspects of personality are what I have come to love about myself and grown quite accustomed to.

All of those stereotypes about lack of loyalty, being a consistent liar, and having no stable relationships just aren't true for every Gemini. There are people who can relate to those traits, sure. But this trend is not universal for all those under our umbrella. To get a better understanding of what a Gemini is really like and what I see for our future, check out my summaries below!

Gemini is the color "yellow." We are raging fire from the sun's core, extremely vivid, and full of potential energy. Geminis are an element of air and classified as mutable. They contain a combo of old and new experiences, and wish to grapple with what the future holds. Adaptability is our strength, and we can flow with any situation at hand.

The sun sign of Gemini is associated with creative thoughts, wit, and formation of new ideas. Since this sign is ruled by mercury, we are considered to be highly intelligent. This trait is coming in close ties with our Virgo friends, as both of us hold this talent for wit as a major strength. Overall, we are considered calculated, cunning to the masses, and absorb facts about subjects that we become intensely immersed in.

Here are the bright spots of the Gemini sign:

  • Playful and expressive.
  • Easily translates new ideas to unique thoughts and concepts.
  • Communication comes naturally.
  • Curious about life's mysterious and wonders.
  • Plays both fair and dirty.
  • Gossip is fun! We engage in talking about drama that doesn't revolve around us.
  • Hobbies are ever-changing and exciting.
  • Intelligence can take form in either logical or creative endeavors.
  • Flexibility in handling tough situations.

But, let's not forget about the negatives:

  • Easily bored by repetitive relationships, conversations, and small talk.
  • Quickly running from genuine experiences if they are also "boring."
  • Rebirth of persona and personality over and over again!
  • Detachment and isolation from others is a main defense mechanism.
  • Flexibility to all people and situation is...also a downfall sometimes.
  • We play dumb, when in reality it is an act. This is where the "two-faced" jab about Gemini comes into play.
  • Insults are cutting, hurtful, and to the point. Loss of friendships, familial ties, romantic partners, etc. can result from this!
  • Stimulation is not always found in everything, which makes us run away from the mundane.

The most talked about personality trait to the ever-illusive Gemini is...the twins.

The twins are the duality of Gemini, and they represent the faces of our true character. We show multiple sides of us depending on the people we are with, and the type of setting that presents itself to us. What I have actually discovered from the basis of the twins, is that Gemini is rather a "mirror." When it comes to communication, Geminis are always deemed as the top dog of language and effortless socializing. However, this is transformed and mended into something very different depending on the person.

For example, I am wholeheartedly an introvert. I do not enjoy socializing often and my social battery gets drained very easily. This is an aspect of a Gemini that I can't always relate to straight off the bat. Especially, when it comes to talking with strangers.

Yet, when I have created new bonds and friendships, this type of connection is when my communication is strongest. I have realized that Gemini is "two-faced" because they have the ability to mimic the traits of other signs.

Gemini seems to mirror what others put out there, and they can copy the energy or aura of any sign on the zodiac. For an Aquarius, they can be unique and distant. But when they are with a Leo, the Gemini signs can turn into an exuberant and confident person who matches the energy of their surroundings. I found this ability to be the most interesting part of my sign, even if it is considered to be a dishonest aspect of my being.

Now, this is in no way a method of tooting my own horn (even though my Gemini-ness would want that). After years of being stuck within this star sign, I have no choice but to examine the ins and outs of Gemini behavior to the best of my ability. It really is a cool power to have, but it is not always coming to save me in a dire situation. The mirror capability can be underhanded, backstabbing, and downright pathetic. If we appear as one thing to people and have ease in changing our personality on a dime, then our persona is false.

Gemini, we must ask ourselves...who are we really and why?

๐š๐š˜๐š–๐šŠ๐š—๐šŒ๐šŽ, ๐™ผ๐šŠ๐šข๐š‹๐šŽ?

Gemini + Aquarius = Calm + Cool

Gemini + Sagittarius= Fun + Laughter

Gemini + Capricorn= Serious + Intriguing

The future love life for Gemini lies within these three signs: Aquarius, Sagittarius, or Capricorn. Sag is fun loving and sweet, while Cap is ready for working on what matters. Based on my own experiences, these are the signs that I have felt most comfortable with. However, the strongest connection we have amidst all the other star signs is noneother than Aquarius.

Aquarius is an air sign, and heavily balances out our need for the new and mysertious. They are careful with their emotions, have great depths to their personality, and bond well with our forms of intimacy. Geminis need a challenge, a strong foundation of intellect, and excellent communication. If partnered with an Aquarius or someone who has these placements in their chart, then a spark may occur!

Gemini is looking for someone with fluid emotional and intellectual storage. They need a partner who understands them, can laugh with them, be serious, and emphasize their traits in the best way possible. Superficial bonds and casual relationships may not be in store for us the next few months, as there is room to grow from our old ways and shift into a solid future.

The love life of Gemini during this next 2021 season seems to be concrete on welcoming a new partner. There is a big shift in the world going on, and maybe my fellow Geminis have been going through a state of focusing on themselves or getting some accomplishments out of the way. After months of working, it is now time to relax and expect the unexpected. We may have a new partner or friendship headed our way for the month of June!

What I hope for all Gemini sun signs and placements is for introspection and reforming the true idea of ourselves. Going through so many stages in life already, many Geminis may have shifted and molded to fit potential personalities that they become infatuated with or truly enamored by. Even if we stumble upon a trait we love, it doesn't always stick. For the next transition into Gemini season, I imagine a new beginning for discovering the best aspects of ourselves.

All I wish for us, is to solidfy who we are and never become bored of our true selves! When it comes to things like careers, financial stability, and family these are my best interpretations of what is to come:

๐—–๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ๐—ฒ๐—ฟ๐˜€: Finding a balance between mental health, individuality, and work! There is a need for finding passion in our work life, along with some time for healing. Equity in the two will be sorted out soon enough, only if we have the desire for making these changes in our best interests.

๐— ๐—ผ๐—ป๐—ฒ๐˜†: If our desire for finding a career or job life is consistent, I would not be suprised to see a generous flow of income coming our way! For the remainder of May, I am hoping for abundance and luck in this department. Even though we may feel tied down and afraid of obligations with bills or borrowing money, this will not be the case forever.

๐—™๐—ฎ๐—บ๐—ถ๐—น๐˜†: While relationships with family may be strained, there is so much room to grow our health and success this year. Even though it is difficult to not have everyone on our sides, whether it be blood related family or chosen family, there will come a point where our hard work will pay off. Stability in relationships is not a foreign idea, and can be a reality!

Keep on movin, Gemini! โ™Š๏ธ
