Are you ready to twist, turn and knot your brain like a piece of string cheese? Ruled by quicksilver Mercury, Gemini is the smartest kid on the block. Let’s follow this social butterfly up to the sparkling Gemini game show. Just keep breathing, and try not to get disoriented. You’re in for an interesting ride, to say the least.
Gemini’s butterfly antennae is raised high to the sky, as new questions buzz in. Quick, what is the most popular coffee beverage in the world? With a Gemini, the answer is never straight up black or flat white.
Gemini is the sign of duality. Yoking light and dark, Gemini enchants with its neon perspective, beckoning us to bar witness to all sides of a story. Articulate and bright conversationalists, the twins ping-pong between this and that at lightening speed.
Gemini naturally understands the multifaceted nature of humanity because they embody it. Today you may get a light pixie fairy, but tomorrow you may get a twilight dark queen. Whatever you get, the sign is always mixing and mingling, riding the cultural rainbow like a champ.
Born with the gift of gab, Gemini talks — A LOT. With their witty banter, you swirl from one side of the argument to the next. From red to green, you taste the array of rainbow possibilities. But then, how do you choose? Everything tastes ‘true’ on the Gemini platter.
Once Upon A Time
There once was a drop-dead gorgeous Queen of Sparta named Leda. Queen Leda’s shimmering beauty captured the hearts of mortals and gods alike — including the All Mighty Zeus.
Zeus didn’t seem to mind that Leda was married to King Tyndarus. In fact, he was married too! So, Zeus turned into a swan to hide from his jealous wife, the Goddess Hera, and approached Leda with as much swagger as a swan could muster. This swan clearly had some moves. Leda fell crazy in lust at first sight.
As you can imagine, this celestial one-night stand cracked open feelings of both shatteringly ecstatic passion and… gulp… guilt. So, right after getting it on with Zeus, Leda slept with her husband.
That steamy night resulted in four sweet surprises — the Gemini twins, Castor and Pollux, and their sisters, Helen (aka the famous Helen of Troy) and Clytemnestra. Castor was the mortal son of King Tyndarus, while Pollux was the immortal son of Zeus.
The twins grew up together in Sparta, sharing many epic adventures on horseback, in battle and sailing the stormy seas. But, alas, one twin was ultimately mortal and died in the heat of battle. Heartbroken, Pollux begged Zeus to bring Castor back as an immortal. And so, Zeus transformed both Castor and Pollux into the sparkling Gemini constellation.
