Today Horoscope


You may be more worried today than people realize, but that's because you're a bit of a magician when you want to keep others from getting too close. Unfortunately, your cleverness can backfire, preventing your best friend or lover from helping you deal with the very thing that's causing you concern. It takes courage to be honest with others when you're not living up to your own standards. Sam Keen wrote, "We come to love not by finding a perfect person, but by learning to see an imperfect person perfectly."

About Gemini

Best Match For Gemini Is Libra 

This is a great combination. It may sound somewhat confusing considering that there will be four of you around (lol), but you can really understand each other. The synastry is there, it is a perfect match.


Worst Match For Gemini is Virgo 

You are too active for this one. The Cancer will want to stay home and cling, so to speak, while you want to go out roam, do things. Forget it! Your energy level is too much higher then the Virgo, and this will in most cases be too much to overcome.


Geminis's are social extroverts, they are talented and very charming people. They have inquiring minds with the ability to be very clever. They are very caring and tend to be generous in temperament. They have a very strong appeal for mental compatibility and both male and female Gemini's shine bright in the social arena.

Having a seemingly flirtatious nature, they also possess a very strong and enduring bond with their partners. They simply enjoy the game of life. Socializing and being charming are very pleasing to them and they enjoy their role of being the innocent flirt.


Gemini's and Heartbreak

Gemini's with their duel personalities and mood changes from moment dislike the feeling of being tied down. They are lively, spur of the moment romantics. Most often faithfullness is not considered one of their best virtues. They have a flighty spirit and their partners may find them unreliable at times as most are flirtatious and incorrigible. However, when the right match is found they are a faithful, caring and understanding partner.


Best Match For Gemini is Libra

These tow signs have much in common with a twinge of contrast to make the relationship spark. They make an ideal partnership with both favoring slight changes of interests on occasion.

This combination presents Libra as the judge and Gemini the approachable jury in respect to the marriage. With both being intellectual and artistically inclined, they understand one another well, especially when it 
comes to the Libra, understanding both sides of the Gemini mate's nature.


Worst Match For Gemini Is Virgo

These are not the two signs made in zodiac heaven. Gemini is too calculating and logical, while the Virgo mate is critical and demanding. Virgo will find themselves at constant odds with their Gemini's trait of the never ending desire for change.

But do not despair most often there is a mutual desire to want the same things in life, such as friends, family and associates who engage them in their intellectual and artistic pursuits. 


Constellation Gemini

Gemini Constellation Stars

Gemini is really not hard to find. All you have to do is just look for the two bright stars that make up the twins heads. They are called, (bet you can guess) "Castor and, of course, Pollux". Once you find these heads, look close by for both, their arms and legs.  Gemini is one of the scant few constellations that actually looks pretty much just like the symbol that it signifies.  

Many different civilizations throughout history observed these twins in the sky. Ancient Greek people recognized these twins Pollux and Castor, the sons of Leda and the head Greek God Zeus. Romans saw this constellation differently, they saw them as the two brothers Romulus and Remus, the heroes that supposedly founded Rome. Both Greeks and Romans alike believed that the twins were raised by a centaur named Chiron.

Gemini's constellation, graphically shows a pair of twins holding hands. It's two brightest stars are Castor and Pollux. The twin to the right "Castor" and twin to the left "Pollux". Pollux is the nearest and brightest star to our system.

Gemini's being restless by nature tend to live on their nerves, allowing the energy consumption for two.

Gemini is ruler of the nervous system, causing mental and nervous exhaustion to be trouble spots.

Gemini's seem to be especially prone to problems with the respiratory organs. They suffer more than most with colds and flu. In part from their reluctance to get rest when needed.

The Gemini Sun Sign - Zodiac sign information

Gemini represents the third sign of the zodiac. According to Greek Mythology the twins Castor and Pollux, were born of the marriage between Leda and Zeus.

As their payment to Zeus, they were to live alternate days in Olympus and Hades.

Gemini, the sign of the Twins, is dual-natured, elusive, complex and contradictory. On the one hand it produces the virtue of versatility, and on the other the vices of two-facedness and flightiness. The sign is linked with Mercury, the planet of childhood and youth, and its subjects tend to have the graces and

faults of the young. When they are good, they are very attractive; when they are bad they are more the worse for being the charmers they are. Like children they are lively, and happy, if circumstances are right for them, or egocentric, imaginative and restless. They take up new activities enthusiastically but lack application, constantly needing new interests, flitting from project to project as apparently purposelessly as a butterfly dancing from flower to flower. To them life is a game which must always be full of fresh moves and continuous entertainment, free of labor and routine. Changing horses in the middle of the stream is another small quirk in the Gemini personality which makes decision making, and sticking to a decision, particularly hard for them. Since they lack the quality of conscientiousness, they are apt to fight a losing battle in any attempts they make to be moral (in the widest sense of the word). Their good qualities are attractive and come easily to them. They are affectionate, courteous, kind, generous, and thoughtful towards the poor and suffering - provided none of the activities resulting from expressing these traits interferes too greatly with their own lives and comforts. They quickly learn to use their outward attractiveness to gain their own ends, and when striving for these they will use any weapon in their armory - unscrupulous lying, and cunning evasiveness; escaping blame by contriving to put it on other people, wrapped up in all the charm they can turn on. In their better moments they may strive to be honest and straightforward, but self-interest is almost always the victor. If things go against them, they sulk like children.

Also like children, they demand attention, admiration, and the spending on them of time, energy and money, throwing tantrums if they don't get what they want. They reflect every change in their surroundings, like chameleons, and can become pessimistic, sullen, peevish and materialistically self-centered if circumstances force them to struggle in any way. If the conditions of life become really adverse, their strength of will may desert them entirely. They can become uncertain of themselves, either withdrawn, or nervously excitable worriers, sullenly discontented, hard and irritable, with "Self" looming ever larger in their struggles. On the other hand their versatility can make them very adaptable, adjusting themselves to control the world around them by means of their inherent ingenuity and cleverness. Most Gemini have a keen, intuitive, sometimes brilliant intelligence and they love cerebral challenges. But their concentration, though intense for a while, does not last. Their mental agility and energy give them a voracious appetite for knowledge from youth onward, though they dislike the labor of learning. They easily grasp almost everything requiring intelligence and mental dexterity, and are often able to marry manual skills to their qualities of mind. Their intellect is strongly analytical and sometimes gives them so great an ability to see both sides of a question that they vacillate and find it hard to make decisions. But their intelligence may very well be used to control and unify the duality of their natures into a most efficient unit. If faced with difficulties, they have little determination to worry at a problem until they find a solution - they will pick the brains of others. In their intellectual pursuits, as in other departments of their lives, they risk becoming dilettantes, losing themselves in too many projects which they follow until they become difficult.

In love they are fickle, not intentionally so but because of the basic inconsistency of their emotional nature, which has an amoral aspect to it. Their is a side to Geminians which can become deeply involved emotionally, and another, hostile to sentimentality, which stands back from a romantic situation, laughing at it and the protagonists in it, including themselves while analyzing it intellectually. Gemini subjects take nothing seriously. So, in love, in spite of their temporary depth of feeling, for the intensity of involvement lasts only while it is new, they are superficial, light-hearted, cool, flirtatious and unimaginative in the understanding of the pain they may give others. They like intrigue, the excitement of the chase, but once they have caught the prey, they lose interest and look around for the next creature to pursue. In less serious situations they make witty, entertaining companions, good acquaintances rather than friends. Even at their worst they are never dull - there is usually playfulness below the surface, and they can be brilliant conversationalists - but they can also be quarrelsome, prattlers, boasters, liars and cheats.

Geminians can be successful in many walks of life though their general characteristics tend to make them unreliable. They are often skilled manipulators of language, in speech and writing, and may be: debaters, diplomats (though in politics they are more interested in theory than practice), orators, preachers (brilliant rather than profound), teachers, authors, poets, journalists, or lawyers. In business any work which combines quick-wittedness with a change of surroundings suits them; working as a traveling salesperson, brokerage work, or dealing with the public in any capacity is right up their alley. Because they are dispassionate, logical, rational and analytical they make good scientists, especially in the fields of medicine and astronomy. They can also make excellent members of the Armed Forces, for they take danger no more seriously than anything else and can earn themselves a reputation for devotion to duty and heroic acts. In the arts they may excel in music, painting and sculpture. They make good psychic researchers of a sceptical kind. Negatively they can degenerate into confidence tricksters, thieves and even adepts in the black arts.

Possible Health Concerns... Gemini rules the arms, shoulders, hands, lungs and nervous system and its subjects need to beware of diseases and accidents associated with the upper part of the body, as well as nervous and pulmonary disorders such as catarrh and bronchitis. Their mercurial nature may also affect a constitution which is not strong if it is put under strain.

You are prone to taking unnecessary risks and wind up harming yourself or others in the process. Sometimes pursuing pleasure too vigorously could also qualify as risk taking.


PROBLEMS THAT MAY ARISE FOR YOU, AND THEIR SOLUTIONS


As with all sun signs, we all have unique traits to our personalities. When these traits are suppressed, or unrealized, problems will arise. However, with astrology we can examine the problem and assess the proper solution based on the sun sign characteristics. As a Gemini you may see things below that really strike home. Try the solution, you most likely will be amazed at the results. If you find yourself on the receiving end of the negatives below, it is because you are failing to express the positive.

PROBLEM: Being superficial could be a big problem for you in your overall relationships with others and also in getting ahead on many jobs where you must endeavor to dig deep and learn something thoroughly. This is the worst Gemini trait of all.
SOLUTION: To make a conscious effort to control this trait is the best approach to take to this problem. If you make a commitment to something or someone you should mentally force yourself to keep that commitment where possible. This will be hard but it can, and has been, accomplished by many under this sign.

PROBLEM: Not one who cares for peace and quiet, you create your own problems with loved ones by picking arguments or tale carrying from one to the other then stand back and enjoy the show.
SOLUTION: While this may relieve your boredom, it is something that you should not let happen as it could easily go out of control and cost you the love and companionship that you desire. When you feel like doing this it would be better to take a long walk and let the feelings pass.

PROBLEM: Boredom is one of your biggest problems and you could easily fall into mischief if you do not find ways to alleviate it.
SOLUTION: You have a great many creative talents and if you put these to work for you in some sort of hobby or project you will find you do not have time to be bored, also, other physical activities should be considered: workouts at the gym, racketball, hiking, etc..

PROBLEM: You could have health problems brought on by overindulgence of food, drink, or the night life which only gets worse as you age.
SOLUTION: Tame your urges and save the party times for weekends only and then try not to overdo it. By keeping everything down to a mild roar you may not have to fight off diseases such as obesity or cirrhosis of the liver.

PROBLEM: You may have the problem of not being able to keep a spouse or a lover due to your pursuit of the opposite sex.
SOLUTION: Cultivate the habit of not flirting with every attractive person you see and make up your mind to be a true and loving spouse, or don't commit until you are really ready to do this.
