Good and evil. Male and female. Yin and yang. Proof that the world certainly does come in pairs, the Gemini Twins go hand-in-hand and represent the duality not only within yourselves, but in your worldly outlook. You can be drawn to something just as much as you are drawn to its opposite.
Your thoughts can bounce fluidly from one topic to another, and others are drawn to the ease at which you speak about a range of ideas, which, in turn, makes others feel comfortable around you in social settings. The Gemini nature is curious, talkative and mentally active. Because your thoughts change so frequently, however, you can come across as one-dimensional -- even though you are equally invested in the topics about which you speak.
Your motto might be "A rolling stone gathers no moss." No matter how old you are, you stay youthful within, carrying with you a witty sense of humor and ability to match those wits with just about anyone -- in turn, winning over any verbal opponent. As you bounce around in life, remember to stop and take it all in.
The astrological element of air represents movement. And the most efficient movement between two points is often a thought. Air signs are thinkers. They emphasize the intellect over other functions. With active minds and a good command of language, the air signs are the natural born communicators. They can be light and breezy as the breath of spring, but their words can also carry the power of a gale force wind.
Communication and the communication within our surroundings are symbolized by the 3rd house. Sibling interactions and quick trips and travels also exist here.
Mercury is restless and changeable as the key planet of Gemini. It drives us more to talk and to listen than it does put those words into action. As the Messenger of the Gods, Mercury moves around the Sun faster than any other planet. He rules over all language, and symbolizes how we think and communicate.
