Personality Traits of a Gemini

By: Libby Pelham BA - Updated: 31 May 2021 | comments*Discuss
Gemini Talkative Social Communication

The third sign of the zodiac is Gemini (May 22nd-June21st). The sign for Gemini is the Twins and it suits the Gemini personality perfectly. Geminis are well known for their dual nature. They seem to be constantly struggling to reconcile the two opposite and distinct parts of their personality. Because of their dual nature, they adapt well to new settings and make friends very easily.

However, Geminis find it hard to have an opinion about a certain topic because they are very good at seeing and understanding both sides of any situation. For example, they may disagree with abortion, yet sympathise with women who have them. This constant changeability causes many Geminis to be quite impulsive and impatient at times.

The Life of the Party

Geminis also love to talk. Because of this, and perhaps in part because of their impulsive behaviour, Geminis are usually the life of the party. They are lively and energetic as well as versatile and intellectual. Their minds are always working, which often results in them telling people what they are thinking. Their wit and humour attract people and because Geminis are such fun to be with, they are often surrounded by many loyal friends throughout their lives.

Geminis have a natural curiosity of all that is around them. This can be a positive thing, in that Geminis know a little about everything and are not shy about giving their opinion. Geminis are most unhappy when stuck in what they feel is a rut. It is not uncommon for Geminis to have several careers throughout their lives (as they get bored with one occupation). This restlessness can also cause many Geminis to have several lovers throughout their lives.

The Great Communicator

Because Geminis are such great communicators and their minds crave information, they love to know the latest news and gossip and enjoy being able to share it with others. Because they are such good communicators, they are frequently sought out by those seeking advice. However, because Geminis are so talkative, some may fear they are not able to keep secrets they are told in confidence.

Geminis love any means of communication, be it by the pen, computer, telephone, or face to face. Geminis gravitate to the arts such as acting, music, writing because they are so good at communication. Because of their great skills, Geminis are often able to persuade people to do almost anything.


Geminis are so sharp and quick, wanting to learn all they can, it can be a weakness. Their superficiality often leads them to skim things rather than exploring them in any depth. Geminis may be the true "Jack of all trades, master of none" because of their short attention spans.

Both male and female Geminis love to be social and charm the opposite sex. A Gemini's gregarious and fun loving nature can often be misinterpreted and they are often seen as flirts and teases. Geminis may be hard to pin down in a relationship as they crave change and freedom to come and go as they please.

Because Geminis are quick to act and talk, they may become frustrated with other signs that are not as quick to act.

Parts of the Body Ruled By Gemini

Hands, arms, shoulders, and lungs – Geminis may be susceptible to strains involving the arms and shoulders and may be prone to respiratory illnesses.

Famous Gemini's

Geminis can be very lively and exciting, but they also can be impatient if you cannot keep up with their frenzied thoughts. They make wonderful friends because there is never a dull moment, however, as lovers, they may be fickle if they get bored.

Astrology actually isn't made up. It's for people of different nature to communicate virtually the same way as other beliefs and practices. Most information is actually accurately portraying God's thoughts directly - as algorithms

I see myself in every single sign that I've read...I guess my astrological sign is the "everything that it is to be human" sign. Those who put themselves in a box are destined to be ruled and limited by artificial boundaries.

I find it so weird because for me alot of these are true but never knew they came with being a gemini. so many people think that I come across as two faced , I just always thought I was 'brutally honest' turns out we're apparently superficial LOL
