Element

Airy people are usually natural communicators. On a positive note they are great and conceptual tasks and often tend to ‘have their head in the clouds’! I usually find that people with this element emphasised are extroverted and enjoy being exposed to different ideas, knowledge is quite important to them. On the down side though, they may be so busy living in their head that they lose touch with reality. The lack of air in a birth chart can indicate difficulty in the expression of that person. Communication of ideas and the ability to conceptualize may prove difficult.

Chakra

Gemini is an Air sign that always has its head in the clouds.  However, on this occasion, your inner child will not be the protagonist, nor will it define what your main Chakra is. Instead, it will be that uncontrollable verbiage that sometimes takes control of your body and turns you into a “chatty Cathy” with too much desire to express everything that goes through your quick mind. 

Therefore, Gemini,  your dominant Chakra is Vissudha, located in the throat and renamed, precisely, with that same name. What do you believe your focus of action is? Expression, knowledge, and communication, simply put, these are your strengths! Also, it allows you to transmit all your ideas with honesty, kindness, insight, and wisdom. What more could you ask for? The Throat Chakra color is blue, the stone is turquoise, and it has a close relationship with the sense of hearing.

Traditional Gemstone

Citrine is a yellow gem with the power of manifestation, and it can help a Gemini’s ambitions become reality. The Twins often retreat to daydreams where they create an ambitious to-do list they’ll get done someday. Citrine can help ground this air sign and help make “someday” today.

Spiritual uses: Citrine activates the golden flakes of light vibrating in you halo which shimmers and connects you with your divine nature. the more aware you are of this aspect of your spiritual body, the more you will actualize the benefits of the connection with higher consciousness. Use this joy-filled stone as a reminder of your divine essence. Use citrine to connect with Archangels Ariel and Jophiel.

Emotional Uses: Citrine activates self-confidence and joy. Use this stone to help you out of depression and relieve any feelings of inferiority or unworthiness. The radiant vibration that citrine emits helps remind your emotions that you are one with joy, peace, and love. Let the golden rays of this stone dissipate whatever challenge or negative emotion is blocking your way to happiness.

I am confident and courageous. I shine my light brightly. I honor and respect myself. I allow others to see y magnificence. Prosperity abounds in my life. Goodness multiplies. Whatever I desire, imagine, and passionately act upon becomes a reality. It is safe for me to be powerful!

Zodiac Flower

Lavender’s exuberant appearance perfectly blends with a Gemini’s social and energetic nature. Lavender is known for its diverse uses, similar to a Gemini’s versatile personality. With a distaste for the bland and ordinary, lavender makes the perfect birthday present for the wonderfully unique Gemini in your life.

Essential Oil

You’re extremely social, quick-witted, intelligent, affectionate, and adaptable. You also have a serious, thoughtful side that you can switch to suddenly, and you tend to be indecisive. Like you, Ylang Ylang is multi-faceted and has a variety of benefits. It has a floral, sweet, herbaceous, and slightly spicy aroma that enhances meditation and promotes peace. Use it to calm and center yourself and invite harmony into your sometimes chaotic life.

Gemini, the third sign in the zodiac, belongs to those born between May 21st and June 20th. Learn all about the Gemini sign below.

Gemini Zodiac Sign Traits

Smart, passionate, and dynamic, Gemini is characterized by the Twins, Castor and Pollux, and is known for having two different sides they can display to the world. Expert communicators, Gemini is the chameleon of the Zodiac, adept at blending into different groups based on the vibe and energy they perceive. While they’re also amazing at showcasing surface traits, the Gemini well runs deep, which is why the Twins are one of the Zodiac’s most emotionally intelligent signs.

Energetic and quick-witted, Gemini never gets stuck in the past and doesn’t ruminate on what might have been. Instead, they move forward with glass-half-full optimism and an ability to always look on the bright side—and land on their feet—in nearly any situation. With a mind that’s constantly racing, even when they’re just quietly hanging out, the Twins never get bored. In fact, Gemini are happy keeping their own company, and can often turn their solitary daydreams into reality.

Gemini signs are in love with love, and they adore the ritual of it all, from those “do they like me?” butterflies to the anticipation of a back-and-forth text volley. Gemini loves dating, and the world loves Gemini. But a Gemini will eventually settle down, because this sign is incredibly loyal and steadfast once they’ve chosen a partner. Let’s be clear, though: Steadfast isn’t a code word for boring. Gemini always love to keep things fresh and are happy to try almost anything in the bedroom. They’re proud of their sexuality and depend on frequent physical check-ins to keep them grounded in their body. To them, sex is a celebration of life, and Gemini loves both sex and life.

Despite their unfair rep for being two-faced, once a Gemini is in your life, they’re loyal for life—but they aren’t afraid to voice their opinion if they feel you’re doing something they disagree with or if they perceive you as not being loyal to them. Always a sign to see all sides of the situation, Gemini may seek input from friends before going to the root of the problem. It’s not gossiping—it’s gathering information.

And even though Gemini is easily the life of the party without trying, the Twins also have a deep emotional side that needs care and feeding. Gemini like time by themselves to read, create, daydream, and come up with other ways of sharing their gifts with the world. When a Gemini can truly tap in and share their gifts, they’re an unstoppable force of energy that can motivate, inspire, and enchant the rest of the Zodiac.

I manifest my reality.

Gemini’s Greatest Gifts

Equipped with almost uncanny emotional intelligence, Gemini can easily read a room and know exactly what other people want to hear from them. They can easily shift their personality depending on mood, going from Friday night life of the party to Monday morning office superstar. Energetic and passionate, Gemini can breathe new life into a same-old routine and excite other people simply by their all-in presence.

Gemini’s Greatest Challenges

That social chameleon rep can sometimes earn Gemini a reputation as two-faced. While a Gemini is all about truth, sometimes a Gemini is more likely to talk to others about a conflict instead of approaching the person who’s actually causing it. The Twins have also been known to stir up gossip just to keep things exciting.

Gemini’s Secret Weapon

Intelligence. Gemini is quick-witted and can read a room or situation in an almost supernatural way. Without saying very many words, a Gemini soon knows who has an agenda, who’s a good ally, and who may need someone to bolster them up. Because of this, Gemini is an amazing friend, leader, and person everyone should be lucky to have in their lives.

Gemini’s Power Colors

Gemini is intelligent, charismatic, and charming. The colors that best represent these traits are:

Yellow: This glass-half-full sign exudes optimism, and yellow can play up their ability to see the bright side. Plus, yellow is affiliated with the solar plexus chakra, which helps manifest desires and dreams.

Blue: Whether it’s light or dark, reminiscent of sky or sea, blue hints at Gemini’s emotional depths. The healing color is also a reminder of this sign’s role as a master diplomat and negotiator who can help tame even the highest tensions between others.

Pink: “Millennial pink” may be called Gemini pink as well. The happy, positive color speaks to Gemini’s cheerful soul. It also touches on Gemini’s whimsical side, which is sometimes overlooked due to the Twins’ other strong traits.

White: Pure energy, this shade matches the go-go-go drive that makes Gemini want to stay up all night, work all day, and somehow find a way to change the world in their spare time.

These are the colors that Gemini should avoid:

Brown: This earth tone anchors Gemini, when this air sign was born to fly.

Gray: While the many shades of gray may seem just as mutable and dynamic as Gemini, this color can seem too buttoned-up and stark around a sign known for its sense of whimsy and wonder. Bright pops of color help keep Gemini from getting too rigid or bogged down in one aspect of their personality.

Red: This fiery color can be too much for Gemini, who already have plenty of energy and passion. Add this color and controversy or conflict may follow. It’s best sticking to pastels that will manifest Gemini energy in the best, brightest way possible.

How to Communicate with a Gemini Woman

Listen to her. A Gemini woman may seem like she’s cycling through different moods, but they likely don’t have anything to do with you. If she says she needs space, trust her—don’t keep texting her. Likewise, when she says she needs you, she’s not pulling a damsel in distress card. She wants you by her side. If her moods are affecting your relationship, you can be the one to bring it up. She may not do it first because Gemini’s mercurial nature is her everyday reality. Suggesting concrete ways to fix any communication problems before they start—like vowing to do phone calls instead of texts if one of you starts getting snippy—will go a long way to smoothing over issues before they start.

How to Communicate with a Gemini Man

Pulled in a million different directions, a Gemini man may not want nightly check-ins. That’s not because he doesn’t love you; he just doesn’t see the point. So make the “why” clear, and once he realizes that it’s important to you, he’ll do what it takes to make you happy. While Gemini can read a room in seconds, it can sometimes be hard for them to tell what their partner is thinking. After all, they’re not psychic! It’s key to let a Gemini man know your preferred communication status upfront. They’ll do their best to oblige you. Finally, passive-aggressive digs can go on forever if you start them with a Gemini—Gemini practically invented the passive-aggressive game. So just avoid it altogether.

In dreams become reality.

Awakening the Inner Gemini

Imaginative and seeking, this air sign knows well that it’s possible to believe in the unseen, and understands that the basis of many religions and spiritual practices may not need to be rooted in any universal logic to be accurate. Gemini is constantly seeking meaning and, like their dual-sides-of-a-coin personality, are just as likely to find that meaning on a solo walk or in the quiet of a sanctuary. While a Gemini may like ritual, whether it’s a daily yoga practice or weekly attendance at a religious service, they’re also open to finding the divine in the everyday. They’re very good at tuning into their spiritual side, but often need quiet and solitude to do so. Because Gemini are innately social creatures, finding this downtime can be tough, and when a Gemini doesn’t have it, he or she may be snappish and disconnected. They need to create space for regularly tuning in, but that may not be via any sort of organized religion.

Gemini truly believe in the best of mankind and sometimes dwell on unhappy things that they can’t control (like much of what the news media seems to report). Small, intentional actions are key for making Gemini feel like they are actively making a positive difference in the world.

Every sign has unfinished business to deal with. For Gemini, the biggest life lesson is about paying attention to the day-to-day that surrounds them, practicing gratitude for the smallest things in life, and being present and whole in everyday situations. This can take a lifetime, but every Gemini has to start somewhere. Here are a few first steps they can take toward clearing their karma:

  1. Say thank you. Start simple. Gemini can get so caught up in big plans, ideas, and adventures that noticing what’s actually around them can be a challenge. A simple daily gratitude list can make a huge difference.
  2. Skip the sarcasm. Gemini are sometimes disappointed when others is slow on the uptake, and may respond with a withering phrase or glance. Get off your high horse and actually explain the situation to them from their perspective.
  3. Be honest with everyone. Gemini aren’t dishonest, but they do have a public and private persona which can be quite different. Try bringing some of that inner vulnerability into your everyday interactions, Gemini—you’ll be surprised.
  4. Spend time alone. Even though Gemini love being in a group, they’re more likely to evolve spiritually when they’re solo. Regular recharging breaks are essential to becoming the best person they can be.
  5. Stick with it. Intelligent Gemini are blessed with minds that go a mile a minute—and they get bored if things slow down. Sticking with a task and seeing it through (even if it’s boring) is an essential and lifelong skill that Gemini need to learn.
