Next in our Zodiac lineup is Gemini! Gemini ("twins" in Latin) is the third astrological sign in the zodiac. Gemini are the most communicative of all signs and are represented by the Greek God Hermes (the messenger God). Many Gemini are always on the go, and ever young at heart - just like Hermes! They are curious and highly changeable (they are represented by twins, which accurately represents both sides of their personality). While a Gemini can be extremely fun and sociable, they can suddenly become serious and thoughtful. Gemini love fun, books, traveling, music and meeting and talking to new people. They are quick-witted, and need variety and love learning (many of them become teachers!).
On the flip side, Gemini can be unpredictable (like their element Air!), get bored easily, and may sometimes come across as know-it-alls and gossips. But you will never be bored with a Gemini friend! (I know, I have a lot of Gemini besties!)
Strengths: Gentle, affectionate, curious, adaptable, ability to learn quickly and exchange ideas
Weaknesses: Nervous, inconsistent, indecisive
Gemini likes: Music, books, magazines, chats with nearly anyone, short trips around the town
Gemini dislikes: Being alone, being confined, repetition and routine
Gemini's propensity to be changeable and open-minded makes them excellent artists, especially writers and journalists, and their skills and flexibility make them excel in trade, driving, and team sports. This is a versatile, inquisitive, fun loving sign, born with a wish to experience everything there is out there in the world. This makes their character inspiring, and never boring.

NOTE about Zodiac Recommendations:
Reading about our astrological signs - a way of recognizing the grouping of stars that were in the sky at the time we were born, is fun and insightful! It's an entertaining and meaningful generalization that can give us a glimpse of a person's BASIC characteristics, preferences, flaws and fears. At different times and situations in my life, I can associate myself with qualities emphasized in EACH of the signs, and it's a very cool way of bringing about an awareness and making me THINK and pay attention to myself and my life and the people around me! The very same way that I use beads to express myself and give me time to reflect and appreciate and heal.
