Represented by the heavenly twins, Gemini is the sign for people born between May 21 and June 20. Gemini is ruled by the element of air and, therefore, the emphasis is on communication and intellect. We’ll start with those born from the week beginning May 19: the Taurus-Gemini Cusp. Find out more about typical Gemini characteristics.
The cusp covers people born between May 19th and 24th. This group has amazingly high energy, and friends and family often find it hard to keep up with their interests and passions. They have a fluid personality, which means that they can’t settle into one stable persona until later in life. Some may try too hard to please other people by being the person they think they should be. Others spend their whole lives trying to determine who they are.
Endurance and consistency are not their strongest attributes and, therefore, they find it hard to complete anything. The more successful Taurus-Gemini cuspers manage to find professions where their butterfly minds are an asset. Often members of this group tend to flit from job to job, meaning that their resume shows a mishmash of employment history.
Personal relationships can be difficult, as Taurus-Gemini appears to treat the whole thing as a performance. Their partners often feel that they are an audience of one purely there to provide a foil for the star of the show. They also find themselves being wholly responsible for the mundane aspects of the relationship: the finances, housekeeping etcetera, while Taurus-Gemini seems to have it easy. As parents, however, the curious Taurus-Gemini can maintain a stimulating and ever-changing environment for their child. Their own awe, enthusiasm and sense of fun presents a positive role-model for children.
Taurus-Geminis are sensuous, obsessive almost, over the physical aspects of relationships. Their downside is they are compulsive in that they have to check out the availability of potential partners. Even if they (both) are in a stable relationship. This means that they are very likely to be unfaithful. Serious negotiation before commitment is, therefore, necessary. You both have to decide on the basis of the relationship.
May 25th to June 2nd is the week of Gemini 1. The one word that defines Gemini 1 is freedom. Freedom for themselves, and for any group or sector of society they see as oppressed. Their weapons are a quick wit and acerbic tongue – and they’re not hesitant in using them. Thus, they do well in the political arena.
In a working situation they quickly lose interest if their colleagues and coworkers can’t keep up with their quicksilver minds. Gemini 1s find it very difficult to hide their irritation, which makes them uncomfortable to work with. Therefore, they must try to cultivate a little more tolerance and patience. Surprisingly, the more structured their lives, the better they settle. They can’t find their focus from the inside, but sensitive handling from another can ensure that they thrive and become an asset in their field of work or study.
Gemini 1 does well within a group of like-minded, witty friends. Here they are part of the gang, rather than sticking out and becoming bored. They enjoy the challenge of proving their intellect, and at the same time, having the mickey taken out of them when they get a bit above themselves.
As romantic partners, Gemini 1s prove to be challenging to say the least. They are not above a little emotional manipulation to get what they want. Although, they are charming and attractive, their ability to sustain long-term relationships is not renowned.
June 3rd to June 10th is the week of Gemini 2. People born during this period place great reliance and emphasis on communication. Problems may occur because often Gemini 2 understands perfectly what they are trying to say, but the recipient is unable to grasp the full meaning as the message is lost like a penny in a forest.
With a natural competitive edge, Gemini 2 does well in certain types of career. Anything that involves communication and self-expression is right up their street. Politics, TV and other media work suit them admirably.
Competitive sports and activities figure highly on the scale of happiness for Gemini 2s. If it involves mental agility, all the better.
Gemini 2 appreciates and enjoys displays of affection. Feeling loved is essential to their sense of security and well-being. Yet they must be careful not to alienate those around them because the urge to share their thoughts takes precedence over other people’s feelings. In relationships, Gemini 2 is sometimes blinded by the physical attractiveness of their potential mate, and then left mystified because of a lack of compatibility. Gemini 2 does better with a practical partner who is happy to take care of day-to-day matters.
Born between June 11th and 18th, Gemini 3 is focussed on pushing the boundaries – of thought, physical prowess and any other limitations imposed upon them. They are attracted to risk and willing to put themselves in danger if it means they can achieve a goal that others are unwilling to attempt. They are individualistic; neither teachers or leaders. They do better on their own terms.
Gemini 3 is impossible to pigeon-hole career-wise. Only they know what suits them best. Some may be content in a lower position, as they know they are free to leave work behind them and take to the hills when they are on their own time. Others may scale the heights of the company hierarchy, bringing their unique abilities to the boardroom.
Those involved with Gemini 3 may find it hard to cope with their apparent mood swings. It’s unlikely that Gemini 3 is deliberately manipulating the situation; they are simply unaware of the effect of their moods on others. Marriage with a Gemini 3 can be successful as long as the other partner understands that they must have their space and a means of expressing themselves. Gemini 3 personalities rarely set out to hurt feelings or lock their partners out.
