Gemini

Gemini is the third sign of the zodiac, and those born under this sign will be quick to tell you all about it. That's because they love to talk! It's not just idle chatter with these folks, either. The driving force behind a Gemini's conversation is their mind.

GEMINI I - The Week of FREEDOM May 25-June 2

Gemini I's balk at restrictions and aim to maintain their freedom at all costs. Generally on the side of the individual, they hate oppression and exploitation, opposing them both in theory and in practice. Gemini I's will not usually back down from a fight. Naturally combative they stick up for what they believe is right and will not hesitate to attack wrongdoing in any form, be it moral or practical, for Gemini I's believe there is a right way and a wrong way to do things, and that only the right way will yield uniformly positive results. One of their strongest weapons is laughter or ridicule, which they do to pull out of their formidable verbal arsenal. Still, Gemini I's are willing to give the other fellow a second chance. Resilient, they will not quit valuable relationships easily; instead, they hang in there, letting go of resentments.

GEMINI II - The Week of NEW LANGUAGE June 3 - 10

 

GEMINI II's show a strong desire to communicate their thoughts and feelings verbally. They also need to be sure that others have understood their message and can see their point of view, even without agreeing with it. Yet the means of expression of Gemini II's are highly personal, to the point of the development of their own unique language. This may lead to all kinds of problems, tensions and frustrations, since they are frequently misunderstood. Moreover, when trying to put their point across, some Gemini II's use a barrage of words, relying on quantity over quality to win the day, or try different lines of argument all at once. In their intense desire to communicate, the meaning may get lost in the shuffle. 

 
Strengths: COMMUNICATIVE, COMPETITIVE, INNOVATIVE
 
Weaknesses: MISINTERPRETED, FLAKY, DISORGANIZED
 

ADVICE: Try not to come on in a rush. Be clear in what you say but also diplomatic. Don't be inattentive to the impression you make or the idea others have of you. There is great value in silence. Take the time to develop deep friendships.

GEMINI III - The Week of the SEEKER June 11-18

 

The primary drive of a Gemini III is to go beyond limitations imposed by society and nature. This may take the form of a drive toward success, or an overcoming of physical limitations. Gemini III's are never happier when they are on the move: probing, testing, tasting and exploring the most interesting things life has to offer. Not afraid to take chances, those born in this week are attracted by risk and danger. Adventurers in every sense of the word, Gemini III's are restless types. Their style is to remain unattached and thus free to progress as far as possible. Life is never dull with a Gemini III around. Those born in this period do not necessarily have to travel to far-off lands to explore and find challenge. For them all of life is an adventure. Thus Gemini III's keep others guessing as to their next move.

 
Strengths: EXPLORATORY - RISK-TAKING - MONEY-WISE
 
Weaknesses: EMOTIONALLY VOLATILE - DISILLUSIONED - IMPATIENT
 

Advice: Sometimes what is right in front of you is just as interesting as something risky or exotic. It may not be incumbent on you to influence the course of things. Allow yourself to express negativity when it is called for. Give yourself easy rewards, too.

GEMINI-CANCER CUSP - The CUSP of MAGIC June 19-24:

Those born during the magical cusp of the summer solstice quickly fall under the spell of enchantment. Romantic and inspirational, Gemini-Cancers often put their talents and energies in service of a higher purpose, be it family, religion, philosophy, arts or political or social causes. Because they can wholeheartedly throw themselves into devotional activities, those born on this cusp often appear as mild, even self-effacing. For many of these individuals, anonymity is a goal in any career they follow. There are also more aggressive Gemini-Cancers, however, who become assertive as they mature and have few problems letting the world know who they are.

 
Strengths: Affectionate, Seductive, Objective
 

Weaknesses: Isolated, Selfish, Demanding
