7: Zodiac Sign: Does It Fit My Personality?
I'm not really into Astrology. It's kind of a pointless subject, anything said about a specific sign is just overly non-specific attributes that can apply to a multitude of people regardless of their 'sign.' But every now and again pointless things are fun to look at.
I'm a Gemini. That means I was born between May 21-June21. According to one of those facty-type pages you can find through Google, Gemini is the third sign of the zodiac and is associated with the element of air. Its ruling planet is Mercury and its quality is Mutable. I really don't know what any of that means but it's what 'makes you a Gemini' I guess. Gemini's sign is the twins.
I guess the twins aspect explains why I have a habit of talking to myself so much. I usually do have a difficult time making up certain decisions and I am most definitely creative and life of the party type of person. Below I have listed some quotes from Astrology.com on the Gemini. I've emboldened the traits that I feel I resonate with.
"The Gemini-born can easily see both sides of an issue, a wonderfully practical quality."
"they love to talk! It's not just idle chatter with these folks, either. The driving force behind a Gemini's conversation is their mind."
"Dalliances with these folks are always enjoyable, since Geminis are bright, quick-witted and the proverbial life of the party. Even though their intellectual minds can rationalize forever and a day, Geminis also have a surplus of imagination waiting to be tapped. Can a Gemini be boring? Never! "
"They can be wishy-washy, too, changing their mood on a simple whim."
"Further, the Twins are adaptable and dexterous and can tackle many things at once. It's a good thing, too, when you consider their myriad interests. The downside of such a curious mind, however, can be a lack of follow-through."
"They are quick-thinking, quick-witted and fast on their feet, much like the messenger god of Roman mythology that rules their sign."
"While their effusiveness may be misconstrued as scheming by some, Geminis generally have their hearts in the right place. It's that ample energy which can also paint them as scatterbrained and unfocused, but behind all that zipping around, the Twins are busily filing all that good data away."
"Air signs are the thinking person's signs, and the Twins don't disappoint. Those born under this sign prize intellect and consider it the key to all things. At work, they are the clearest of thinkers, looking at a project from all (well, at least two) sides and putting forth some logical and well-thought-out ideas. This quality makes Geminis an asset to any team, and while these folks are not inclined to take the lead, they are a most valuable component." ((False: If it's anything creative I am very likely to try to take the lead. Otherwise not so much.))
"They love the camaraderie of games and play, which is why they excel at team events. Whether it's volleyball or a game of charades, Geminis are always ready to play. A book club would certainly stimulate their literary minds." ((Unless it's Dutch Blitz, then it's every cousin for themselves.))
"In the game of love, Geminis are playful, flirtatious and endless fun." ((Well no doubt about that.))
So what do you think? Does the Gemini sign fit me? Does your zodiac symbol fit your personality? Let me know in the comments.
