22 May – 21 June
The third sign of the zodiac, Gemini is the sign of the heavenly twins. These celestial bodies bestow an element of duality that emerges on many levels. Geminians never seem to do only one thing at a time. But it is up to us to remind them that this tendency can sometimes get a little out of hand. Their quick wit and need to communicate comes from the influence of their ruling planet, Mercury.
This is the first air sign of the zodiac and the first of the mutable quality. Both features compliment Gemini, since the mental attributes and quickness of mind are allowed plenty of freedom of expression when released into the air. The mutable quality complements the duality of Gemini- again encouraging free and positive expression.
