Seize the day! That is Gemini’s classic motto. The third sign of the zodiac signifies youth, intellect, communication, and versatility. Astrologers dubbed them the “life of the party.”
But many people think they are duplicitous, unreliable, narcissistic, and terrible listeners. Are Geminis misunderstood or just downright annoying
Versatility is Gemini’s second name. They are fidgety and constantly on the move.
Their insatiable curiosity dictates that they should be juggling several projects at once and pursuing several hobbies or even relationships.
While multitasking is not necessarily a bad thing, the twin has a tendency to bite off more than they can chew, leaving them overwhelmed and drained. It is often challenging for them to stick to anything for long because their mind is always jumping to the next exciting object.
But before you hate on a Gemini for not noticing your new haircut, blame their ruling planet first. Gemini is governed by Mercury. And this planet is all about speed. It is the fastest moving planet after all. Thus, Geminis are usually fast thinkers, fast talkers, fast learners, and fast to lose interest.

Anyone who has been with a Gemini knows they love to talk, especially about themselves. They are up-to-date and always know a bit about everything: the latest gadgets, the newest skincare products, and the most viral videos.
It would be a mistake to challenge Geminis to a battle of wits as wordplay is their forte. They can easily disarm you with their quick mental prowess.
They are prone to gossip. Twitter could have well been created for Geminis. The best platform for bored, oversharing narcissists.
But it’s not only idle chatter that they crave. They appreciate deep conversations about anything. Whether it’s politics, science, or music, as long as it’s not a long-winding story. Otherwise, they would switch off and change the subject.

The twin is a hard egg to crack. Some Geminis feel a compulsion to show a totally opposite persona. A disgruntled friend once told me that Scorpios are low-key psychopaths. To which I replied, they can’t top a Gemini.
Cold-hearted Geminis are troublemakers and are prone to being deceptive. They can manifest two opposing personalities. The problem is you will never be sure which one will show up half the time. Geminis may not know either; that’s why people consider them duplicitous and fickle.

There are many reasons why Geminis think highly of themselves. The most obvious reason is that…well, they are indeed better than most of us.
You only have to look at these names to arrive at the same conclusion: Marilyn Monroe, Helena Bonham Carter, John F. Kennedy, Liam Neeson, Nicole Kidman, Morgan Freeman, Bob Dylan, and Tim Berners-Lee (the inventor of the world wide web). Nuff said.
Geminis are confident (read: egotistic) because they can easily charm the crowd. These are the people-pleasers of the zodiac and are naturally flirtatious, which means they have no shortage of admirers.
They are also disturbingly persuasive. Only a Gemini can sell a bottle of sand in the Sahara. People are drawn to Geminis because they don’t know what to expect from them. Their unpredictability only adds to the mystique.

On the bright side, a Gemini can charm the crab to come out of its shell. Cancer, on the other hand, can teach a Gemini how to slow down and cherish the small wonders of life.
It would take a lot of patience (and tears) for Scorpio and Gemini to find the right balance in their relationship. Scorpio is another water sign that gravitates toward introversion and would not be able to keep up with the dizzying lifestyle of Gemini.
Both signs are strong-willed and don’t take criticisms lightly so they won’t hesitate to engage in fights. Geminis are turned on by Scorpio’s keen intellect and inquisitive nature, but those may not be enough to keep them together.
Virgo is an earth sign that has a traditional approach to life and thrives on logic and practicality. Gemini finds Virgo too rigid, and their propensity for routine and order almost appalling.
Aside from their intellectual abilities, they don’t have much in common.
With Geminis partying and gossiping, it would be difficult to provide the calm and quiet space that Virgo craves. The virgin may be a little dull and uncompromising for the spirited and restless twin.
Capricorn is initially drawn to Gemini’s wit and charm. Gemini is impressed by Capricorn’s hardworking nature.
Both of them are clever and ambitious but Gemini is horrified by Capricorn’s “all work and no play” approach to life.
For the cautious goat, Gemini is too indecisive and scattered to be an ideal partner. This is a particularly difficult union as they operate on totally different frequencies.
The twin has the gift of gab and is very generous with compliments. A Leo will definitely feel loved and appreciated by a Gemini.
It was no coincidence that John F. Kennedy (Gemini) and Jacqueline Kennedy (Leo) had a powerful connection.
This match brings together two energetic individuals who enjoy great adventures and playful banters. But Leo may find it difficult to keep up with Gemini’s endless chatter and Gemini may consider Leo too dramatic. Nevertheless, these signs can be very compatible mentally and sexually.
Socializing is second nature to air signs, so both Gemini and Libra natives enjoy meeting and talking to people.
This pair will make great pals and lovers as their affectionate nature makes them click immediately.
The downside of Gemini folks is that their sharp tongues can ruin the most extraordinary relationships. It’s hard for them to accept their faults and tend to blame the other person when things aren’t going their way.
Fellow air sign Aquarius is versatile and, just like Gemini, refuses to be bored or boring. With notoriously hyperactive minds, these two will never run out of things to talk about.
The twin is a live wire that can be easily distracted. But the water-bearer can come up with great ideas to hold its attention.
Gemini appreciates the visionary spirit and radical vision of Aquarius. They are well matched and can work as a team to achieve a common goal.
Air feeds fire. So it’s gonna be one hell of a ride for this match! Both are bursting with energy and will be busy moving on to the next adventure than dwell on their differences.
Despite some occasional power struggles, these two mutable signs can get over arguments quickly. Each brings a comfortable level of freedom and flexibility to the relationship.
Because neither of them is in touch with their emotions, their bond may weaken once the novelty runs out.
The duality of a Gemini means they want to be free, but they don’t want to be alone. Love is important to them, but they also tend to be aloof and hard to pin down. Once they commit, they demand the same level of commitment. Geminis need a partner with wide-ranging interests. You better have some wit and wisdom in your back pocket.
