Characteristics of the Twins
The Gemini Zodiac Sign Traits in Astrology
Gemini, the Twins, is the third sign of the Zodiac in the horoscope. The Gemini Zodiac sign belongs to the element air and the quality mutable. That makes it a sign of light-minded intellectualism, the humorous one who refuses to take things very seriously. The Gemini astrological sign is the character of the entertainer.
Gemini is the playful horoscope Zodiac sign, quick to laughter and just as quick to make others burst into it. The motivation of Gemini in the horoscope is basically just trying to have some fun. Not as any disrespect of the formidable treasure of life, but as a way of making the best of it, without ignoring either its magnitude or its ups and downs.
Inside, the Gemini Zodiac sign is just as serious as everyone else. The fun and the entertainment are remedies for the eternal loneliness of the soul and the dreadful blows that life is sure to strike us all with, now and then. The Gemini horoscope sign ponders the conditions of life in this world, but that's no reason not to find the humor in it.
Gemini is the astrological sign of the Twins, and the most prominent twins of history are Castor and Pollux of Greek and Roman mythology. One was born mortal, the other immortal. When the mortal one died, the other asked Zeus to divide his immortality with his brother, so that they could both live on forever. Zeus did so by turning them into the stellar constellation Gemini.
So, the Gemini Zodiac sign is both a smile and a tear.
Those with Gemini as their horoscope Zodiac sign are born with the sun in it, between May 21 and June 21. For more about Gemini and its influence in the horoscope, see the links in the menu to the left and below.
Gemini Horoscope TraitsThe Gemini Zodiac sign, starting when summer does, and ending at Midsummer, is the horoscope sign with the traits of the carefree entertainer, the one who usually avoids taking things seriously. Talking, joking, laughing. In astrology, Gemini is all about words and exchanging thoughts, following the impulses of curiosity.

Gemini CompatibilityThe Gemini horoscope sign, the talkative joker, belongs to the element air, which is that of thought. So do Libra and Aquarius, but that doesn't necessarily mean Gemini is particularly compatible with them - they might instead talk past each other. Nor for that matter is the Gemini Zodiac sign always incompatible with, say, the earth signs Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn.
All the astrological traits of each Zodiac sign have to be considered when examining their compatibility. Read more about what it means to the Gemini horoscope sign here:
