Gemini (The Twins), May 21st – June 20th
The Gemini-born can easily see both sides of an issue, a wonderfully practical quality. Less practical is the fact that you're not sure which Twin will show up half the time. Geminis may not know who's showing up either, which can prompt others to consider them fickle and restless.
I'm not heavy into astrology, but throughout the course of my life there have been a handful of astrological signs that stick out to me based on various encounters with multiple people.
The most prevalent sign has been (and always will be) Gemini, for me. In addition to friends, ex-boyfriends and colleagues, my mother, brother and son are all Geminis. I've been surrounded by Geminis my whole life and will be for many years to come.
Two predominant characteristics that have remained consistent are their overwhelming love and generosity towards others and on the opposite end of the spectrum, their ability to turn that off, as if it were a switch or at times, even an exploding time bomb of sorts. I suppose any one can have that characteristic, though I can predict my mother begging me to remove this post from my blog. I'm convinced it's a Gemini thing. Now, you might think that it could be a hereditary trait, but my brother and I have different fathers. It's not a trait seen amongst my mother's side of the family, other than her.
While it might sound as though I'm harping on my beloved Geminis, I'm not. They're very near and dear to my heart. So much, in fact, that I had the Gemini symbol tattooed on my wrist. It's the most commented on tattoo that I have.
Just a few weeks ago, I went to the drive-through of Taco Bell. The attendant asked me if I was a Gemini. I didn't even need to tell her what the symbol was. I explained to her that my mother, brother and son are all Geminis, followed by '"all six of them". She exclaimed, "I know, right?", laughing in agreement.
So, let's celebrate Gemini's.
5/22 – James (brother)
5/26 – Debbie (Mom)
5/30 – Heidi
5/31 – Michael
6/1 – Nicholas (son)
