Gemini, the Twin, is the 3rd astrological sign in the Western Zodiac. Souls born between May 22 and June 22 are born under the constellation of Gemini, one of the 12 archetypes of consciousness.
Gemini’s astrological statement is: “I Think!” Gemini is a mental sign. This sign thinks and analyzes. It is ruled by the planet Mercury, the planet (god) of communication, so like its astrological cousin Virgo, Gemini likes to communicate. This is usually a talkative sign. Very mental and loves intellectual stimulation!
Gemini corresponds to the astrological 3rd House, the House of Relatives and Communication. Lessons in life that the 3rd House present to us all include lessons in communication, dealing with siblings, experiencing short journeys (Sagittarius, Gemini’s astrological opposite deals with long journeys), learning, dealing with neighbors, our immediate environment, and our manner of speech.
Gemini is an Air sign. Air signs are very mental and intellectual. They are also communicative! Air signs include Gemini, Libra, and Aquarius – the mental signs of the Zodiac.
The disposition of Air signs is that they are lively and mercurial, with rapid speech. Any sign ruled by Mercury is naturally mercurial. Thus, Gemini and Virgo are mercurial by nature.
Gemini, like Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces, is a mutable sign. This means that Gemini is very flexible, adaptable, changeable, flexible, unstable, and unpredictable. Like other mutable signs, it’s challenging for these people to just go to one place and return home. They must wander; take short or long journeys.
Gemini is a Masculine sign. Gemini’s polarity is masculine and this means, like other Masculine signs (Aries, Leo, Libra, Sagittarius, and Aquarius), the person is extroverted, socially outgoing; assertive, and bold.
When we analyze the nature of the Gemini, a certain duality is apparent in this sign. Geminis are ambivalent, very intelligent, humane, well-disposed, very judicious, versatile, attractive, happy, lively, imaginative, affectionate, courteous, kind, generous, thoughtful, adaptable, ingenious, clever, and logical. However, this sign has a shifting outlook to the point of being elusive. Geminis also have a complex personality and are often contradictory.
Geminis negative traits include: egocentric, pessimistic, restless, unscrupulous, dishonest, sullen, irritable, and self-interested.
In relationships (marriage/intimacy), Geminis fare well with other Air signs (Libra and Aquarius) followed by Fire signs (Aries, Leos, and Sagittarius).
Geminis chart challenging waters in relationships with Water signs (Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces) and especially Earth signs (Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn). The farther away the element, the more challenges due to lack of similarities, especially in personality.
Gemini’s astrological opposite sign or polarity sign is Sagittarius. Sagittarius is the ideal and quintessential mate for Gemini. These 2 signs may experience many challenges due to the fact that they are both Mutable signs and Masculine signs.

Kennedy, Tupac Shakur, Christopher Wallace (Biggie Smalls), Michelle Phillips, Dr. Norman Vincent Peale, Brooke Shields, Pam Grier, Johnny Depp, Helen Hunt, Phyllicia Rashad, Gladys Knight, Mark Wahlberg, Lindsay Wagner, Oshea Jackson (Ice cube), Angelina Jolie, Prince William, Patti LaBelle, Tanjareen Martin, Roger Nelson a/k/a Prince, Todd Bridges, Morrissey, Jewel, Lenny Kravitz, Ally Sheedy, Curtis Mayfield, Elizabeth Hurly, Mr. T, Juliette Lewis, Paul McCartney, Lauryn Hill, Tom Jones, Dean Martin, Mary-Kate Olsen, Adrienne Barbeau, Bob Dylan, Malcolm McDowell, Venus Williams, Bruce Dern, Annette Bening, Kris Kristofferson, Joan Collins, Gene Wilder, Joe Namath, Marilyn Monroe, Bob Hope, Judy Holiday, Morgan Freeman, Gena Rowlands, Jacques Cousteau, Josephine Baker, Henry Kissinger, Courtney Cox, Vincent Price, Paula Abdul, Laurence Olivier, Stevie Nicks, Jane Russell, Barry Manilow, Martin Landau, Jessica Tandy, Clint Eastwood, Wynonna Judd, Jim Thorpe, Leslie Uggams, John Wayne, Sandra Bernhard, Bill Moyers, Joan Rivers, Peggy Lee, Al Jolson, Lea Thompson, Frank Oz, Olympia Dukakis, Tommy Chong, Melissa Ethridge, Liam Neeson, Steffi Graf, and LaToya Jackson.

It is generally accepted that when a person becomes deficient in their sign’s cell salt, sickness, disease, and breakdown results. So when a Gemini becomes deficient in Potassium Chloride, his or her health becomes impaired. Potassium is an element that nourishes the nervous system. Geminis and Virgos require plenty of Potassium Chloride because both of these signs are associated with the nervous system and susceptible to nervous system disorders.
As all signs have a cell or mineral salt assigned to it. The cell salt for Gemini is Potassium Chloride. Geminis use up more of this salt than any other sign and therefore require more of their salt.
