Welcome To Gemini Season
Gemini is multifaceted, inquisitive, and extremely social. They’re symbolized by the twins which, per astrology, represents the duality of human nature. That’s a more formal way of saying they have totally different sides of them (who doesn’t?) and aren’t shy about changing their minds. Despite their flightiness, they love to maintain their friendships, which is why they have a reputation for owning a buzzing social life. As an air sign, Gemini appreciates a good social outing and loves to strike conversation with everyone around them.
Ruled by Mercury, it can be hard to get a word in during a conversation with a Gemini. Mercury is the planet of communication, community, and short-distance travel. These deepthinkers have a way of prodding at our ideas and urging us to explore different avenues of life. They love to think outside of the box, so their ideas might seem off-kilter (impossible, even!). But they always manage to McGyver their way out of sticky situations.
