I’m not sure when it happened, but at some point in time, one’s zodiac sign became more than just a cute theory or idea. At some point, it became a truth; a guide, for pretty much everything. A basis in which we judge ourselves and others, how we carry ourselves and make decisions; How we interact with the universe that surrounds us. Today, your sign can say more about you than where you came from or where you’ve been. It is a significant characteristic, a very telling personality trait. This being said, in this universe with its ever so-subtle navigation, it is imperative you get in touch with your sign, your planetary guide. So embrace it baby, there ain’t no point in fighting.
Luckily for me I am a Gemini loud and proud and in honor of the szn of the twins, I feel compelled to ask the question: What does being a Gem mean to me?
Though we may not get as bad of a rap as some of the other signs out there *ahem* Scorpios I’m looking at you, we Geminis have had our fair share of criticism. Quickly labeled as split or “two-faced”, many of us are judged as deceptive or fake. But that theory couldn’t be further from the truth. To me, being a Gemini, means being well-rounded, relatable, having the ability to see many perspectives. Our highly inquisitive mind and sensitive nature allows us the empathy that many other signs lack. So, though we may be guilty of having more than enough personalities, using them to connect rather than to deceive, makes us one powerful force.
Ever-wavering, being a Gemini to me, means overcoming constant hurdles. You know, the kind you place in front of yourself. Our constant need to bounce from thought to thought can make it hard to stayed focused on just one goal. Interested in, well, pretty much everything, we can find it hard to choose just one focus. Because of this, being a Gemini means being in constant struggle with one’s self. The twins playing tug of war. Pulling you in all directions. Requiring us more energy than most, to buckle down and follow through.
Oh, and we’re so. damn. chatty. And trust, it ain’t easy to turn off. You know when you have that one last colada? That last one that’s going to send you over the edge? You know when you’re buzzin’ just a little too much. Sis, that’s being a Gemini ALL THE TIME. We have 9,000 things going on in our heads at one time and we just want to talk about it. To you. All the time. Where else is it all supposed to go?! We can’t keep it up in that pretty little head of ours – there’s no room! To me, being a Gemini means verbose, but with intention. We just want to understand, to connect.
Being a Gem ain’t easy. There’s a lot going on up in that brain of ours.
And the struggle is real.
For me, the mind of a Gemini prepares you for the ambiguity and inconsistency of life. The stopping and starting, the ups and downs, the constant state of ‘going with the flow’. We certainly aren’t perfect, but godDAMN we’re good!
