the male domicile of Mercury
Gemini embodies the flexible mental energy of its ruling planet Mercury. People born under this sign are constantly hungry for knowledge, communication and movement. They are fascinated with the world and curious to explore it and learn as much as possible about it. They love gathering information and sharing it. Geminis are less concerned with the deeper meaning of things and more focused on learning about ideas for the sake of having the information. For them, the world is a giant school where you can learn a lot and they intend to make the most of this opportunity. Emotions are of no interest, only information is.
The focus on communication is why Geminis are known to love talking and to always be on the lookout for an interesting conversation. They stray away from emotional or philosophical exchanges and prefer to engage in more light-hearted chats within which they can be witty and humorous. This makes them a great company for entertaining and undemanding conversations but if you need emotional support for the dark periods in life, Geminis are not the best option in the catalogue.
To many people, Geminis come across as shallow but remember, Geminis' role is to gather the information not necessarily analyze it. Many people born under this sign have the reputation of being gossipers but that's just another expression of the same data-gathering trait.
When you meet a Gemini, always remember that their brain is racing through concepts and ideas at a speed that is unusually high for everyone else. They love keeping records in their minds of facts and figures. Their interests change quite quickly and as a result they know a lot about a lot of things but rarely become proficient in any specific field.
There is an unmistakable nervous energy about Geminis that is channeled through doing several things at the same time, working on a couple of projects simultaneously, researching new subjects, fidgeting, doing things with the hands (knitting, video games, puzzles) and looking for new things to do next. They have short attention spans. As a result, they are well-informed about a lot of things and make great guests at parties. They always have something to add to any conversation, and they adapt easily to all sorts of situations and communities.
This adaptability is why Geminis come across as two-faced. They are dynamic in everything they do and that includes the opinions they hold and the camps they belong to. Change itself is what they thrive on.
Speaking of parties, Geminis love socializing and communicating with people. More precisely, they prefer to be on the speaking part rather than the listening part of the exchange. They love expressing themselves through language and they truly believe that conversations is how problems gets solved and solutions are arrived at.
In romantic relationships, they tend to disregard the emotional and focus on the mental simulation that they receive from their partner. They need dynamism and stable, secure relationships may feel like a bog-down to them. They want to be appreciated for the versatility of their mind and all the many things they know of.
