Last night a friend asked me if I thought I was cool. I answered with a confident decisive, “Yes!” It was a no-brainer for me.
Then he asked what I thought were those things that make me cool. I told him that I am refreshingly comfortable in my own skin, allow other people to be who they are and I love life and am committed to living it to the fullest. He agreed and added a few things about being able to talk about any subject intelligently, loving to laugh and having a laugh that beats all and a great rack (ok, so maybe he didn’t say that. But he was thinking it.)
I know I’ve mentioned my curiosity about the Zodiac here before. And for those who haven’t read those other posts I’m too lazy to link now, I’ll recap. I don’t believe it is absolute truth, but there is enough truth there to lead me to believe that there is absolutely something to it, even if I never fully understand what that something is.
So, this morning a co-worker asked me a question about compatability and that led me to an astrology website I’ve never been to before. The description of Gemini was unparalleled by all I’ve ever read before. If I never felt I was looking in a mirror, I did today and there’s something energizing and affirming about it that I can’t easily explain.
That said, here’s what I read:
The third sector of the zodiac, Gemini is all about intelligence and communication. You’re born under this sign and have a talent for and love of using your minds and expressing yourself fully.
As a Gemini, you are a bower bird, mentally, and take an interest in all sorts of different things. Anything that gets your mind ticking over will grab you. You constantly try to challenge your mental abilities and will make extra efforts to understand anything you put your mind to.
You can’t understand why other people don’t feel the same way. To you, this kind of stimulation is your life blood. Anyone who engages you in quick-witted and thoughtful banter will win your heart for sure.
Some great communicators are born under your sign — actresses Helen Hunt and Marilyn Monroe, for instance. Like them, you take interest in anything that requires a little brain power. Reading and ferreting out information on the internet are a perfect way for you to unwind. Communication would have to be one of your favourite pastimes.
Taking up acting classes wouldn’t be a bad idea either, even if you don’t fancy yourself as an Emmy Award winner. Meeting new people and sharing your thoughts and feelings with them is enough of a blast for you.
Not all Geminis have brains on the brain, though. Anna Kournikova, the tennis superstar, proves that — she puts her focus into physical exercise. She is a superb tennis player which requires physical dexterity and mental agility as well.
Gemini is also on the top of the list of achievers in sport. But the sport you get into will be one that requires a strategic and intellectual approach. If it doesn’t, it won’t sustain your interest. Tennis, chess, golf and card games like bridge and canasta appeal to you.
If you could be accused of anything, it would be that you spread yourself too thinly, by being interested in too many things. To some people, you seem superficial and flighty. It’s the ‘rolling stone gathering no moss’ thing — doing a bit of this and a bit of that and not getting deeply into any one thing.
You see it differently, of course. To you life is a smorgasbord, and you’re going to taste everything. Trying just one main course, so to speak, isn’t your thing. Variety, diversity and experimentation are some of your key words. And you can always say, ‘At least I’ll never be boring!’
The fact that you take on so much also means you risk wearing yourself out and letting your vitality engine slow down. It is not easy for you to pace yourself, but if you can get your self-discipline working on this, you can achieve more than most. Make sure you have enough fuel in your gas tank to get you to where you want to go.
People always love your company — your adaptability makes you interesting. People are amazed at your versatility, at the way you manage to juggle so many different activities. Is there anything you don’t try your hand at? They wonder.
Learning will always be one of your passions — you don’t believe there’s ever a good time to limit someone’s desire to improve their mind.
You have a great love of the written as well as the spoken word, and will often put pen to paper — or hands to keyboard — to get your own thoughts down. Sometimes this is just so you can work out what you think about a particular issue or event. Lots of journalists, writers, and advisers are Geminis; their way with words is their best tool for making a lasting impression.
You also have a strong connection to travel and short journeys. You’ll often feel restless, and your itchy feet will set you wandering. These journeys may not be long, but there will be plenty of them — you’re always on the go. You are thirsty for new experiences, and even on short journeys or in transit, you’ll throw yourself into meeting new and unusual people.
You’re fascinated by psychology and the way human relationships work, so you will seek a life partner who is as into communication as you are. You will need this sort of person if you are to achieve emotional fulfilment.
You are the type of person friends and relatives turn to for advice on their love life. This has an upside for you too — it helps you understand what’s going on in your own life, romantically speaking.
Geminis seem to grow younger rather than older. Physically, you will maintain a youthful glow, and you will never lose your fun-loving liveliness. You’re really not into that ‘growing old gracefully’ thing.
Vitality and constant stimulation are what you are about. A peaceful old age is definitely not your cup of tea (even if you happen to be over 60).
If you’ve read at least 3 of my posts, I count you qualified to chime in on this one. Do you think this hits the nail as squarely on the head as I do?
Oh yeah, and here’s the site so you can check yours.
