The Best and Worst of Gemini (or Gemini, Are You a Chatterbox or a Communicator?)
Gemini sign types (usually born between May 21 and June 21) are famous for their wit and their love of words and communication. But Gemini, how do you know when you’re talking too much and boring your listeners? Communication is a two-way street every Gemini learns to walk both sides of.
Gemini, when you’re at your best. . .
. . . you’re the sharpest tool in the shed. You’re a little quicker to grasp ideas and smarter in using them. You love information and like to keep your thought process logical. Chances are you did well in school because yours is the kind of mind teachers love to teach—eager, curious and fascinated with ideas. This could all get rather dry, but fortunately you are also deeply interested in the art of conversation. Using the right words and really getting the idea across is as important to you as really getting what others say.
. . . and at your worst. . .
Dare I say it? Sometimes, instead of talking, you lecture. Sometimes instead of conversing, you chatter. And you’re a teeny bit prone to gossip. Moving information around from one person’s head to another is your main preoccupation, but when that information is actually opinion—and negative opinion at that—you begin unravelling the very social ties you sought to create. And people who listen to the negativity begin to wonder what you’re saying when they’re not around. Once you become labeled as a gossip or as snarky, it’s hard to go back.
Handling your Gemini nature
Warmth in communication is crucial. Care about the person you are talking with and let your words communicate that caring. Talk less, listen more. Share your wisdom, but also inquire into the wisdom of others. Most of all, Gemini, be curious, because this is your great strength. Learn the fine art of asking questions: warm, gentle, evocative questions about personal matters and sharp, pointed, incisive questions about impersonal matters. People around you will share everything and you’ll never be bored.
Clueing others in about you
Let the people in your life know that you value their opinion and are genuinely interested in their perspective. Let them know you are interruptible. Let them know that you need your mobility, freedom and flexibility, but that you’re willing to slow down and really connect with them in conversation as you flit about. Some of your friends (maybe all of them!) will need more time to think things through than you do—this doesn’t mean they are stupid, but that they have a different thinking style. Allow them their time and respect their form of intelligence. Enjoy the Aquarians and Librans in your life—they are comfortable with your need for lightness and flexibility and they’ll never bore you or drag you down.
