But I'm sure that's not what the Girlz were referring to when they came up with the post. So, I was born under the sign of Gemini and strangely enough so was my sister. She is almost 3 years younger than me, but her birthdays is 6 days before mine. *pause* Yep, I'm giving you time to take that in. I always felt bad for my Mom since she never got a break on present buying.
Anyway, I looked up the traits of a Gemini and found this on a website called ganeshaspeaks.com. I will go through them each and try to be as honest as I can because truly who likes looking closely at themselves. Eeesh, I'd rather lounge back, eat a bon-bon and read.
True, all Zodiac Signs have positive as well as negative traits, and the Gemini is no exception. For example, Gemini-born are clever and intellectual people but they can also be tense and restless. To understand a Gemini it is essential to understand his/her traits.
Positive Traits of Gemini
Broad-minded and easy-going that they are, the Gemini are adjustable individuals as the desire to enjoy every moment run deep within them.
** When I was younger I would have laughed at this since change was not my friend. But now I have learned to roll with whatever happens and enjoy what comes.
A wide variety of subjects excites them, and hence, the Gemini will try their hands at diverse things. Surely, they won’t get stuck in any mundane tasks.
** Yes!! I love to learn and this is why I have so many student loans. (rolling eyes) I also read tons and tons of nonfiction and try my hand at a variety of crafts.
Gemini-born is enthusiastic and full of life, and always crave for accomplishing new and interesting things; and at times, their enthusiasm is infectious.
** I think this does match with me. I love going places and seeing new things and I get really pumped if my friends can do experience it with me.
Gemini-born are blessed with brilliant communication skills. They are a soft-spoken lot! They can sell just about anything to anyone with their outstanding verbal skills.
** Yeah, don't know about this. I love to talk, but don't know if that means I'm a brilliant communicator.
Witty and Humorous
Gemini-born can effortlessly impress you with their wit and humour, and you will never get bored in their company. Besides, their spontaneity adds to their natural charm. A Gemini can easily keep you entertained and involved for hours.
** Don't know about this either, but I love to laugh.
Gemini are born intellectuals, they are always interested in learning numerous subjects. They are clever and sharp individuals and they will not shy away from voicing their opinions.
** Yep! And yep on the opinions. I'm also the one to ask if you want a truly honest opinion, but you'd better be sure because I will tell you the truth.
Negative Traits of Gemini
Lack of Consistency
Gemini-born are so sharp and prompt that it is hard for them to stay interested and focused in the projects they start with. Such inconsistency is their main drawback.
** And yes, unfortunately. That is why I have a bunch of books started, but not many finished.
Gemini-born are often tagged as superficial people because of their inability to delve deep and pay attention to details.
** Yep, and this is why I'm a jack of many trades, but a master of none. I knit and make jewelry and do other crafts, but I can't say I'm great at them because I just can't concentrate. I don't see it as superficial, I just see it as having a wide variety of interests. :-)
Lack Decision Making Ability
Gemini-born are constantly in two minds whenever they are supposed to decide on something. At times, they lose out on very lucrative opportunities in their life due to their inability to decide.
** I used to be like this, but I think as I've aged I do a better job at making decisions.
Lack of Direction
Gemini-born often lack the direction and focus in their life and so they easily get bored with the things that they are doing.
** And yes again, if you come to my house you will find a lot of half finished projects
Anxious Gemini-born are full of energy, but have a tendency to bite off more than they can chew. This leads to anxiousness and makes them erratic.
** Not so much anymore. Like I said, as I've aged I have mellowed. Now it takes a lot to get me excited. I take things as they come and roll with it.
So am I like my sign? Some . . .probably more than I'm not, but there's a lot to say for life experience too. As I've grown older I realized there's no reason to get all anxious and crazy about things. I've learned to roll with life and pretty much take each day as it comes. If my gabillion dollars of therapy have taught me anything, it's that the idea of control is an illusion. I cannot control anything, but me and my reaction to things. Some days that's harder than others to do, but most of the time it works.
As my last thought, I think this sign truly matches with who I am. Enjoy

OMG - I hear you on all the half finished stuff. O.oReplyDelete
And this is why we are twins because you are a Gemini too. *sigh* If we finished all the half done stuff we would have a billion books out. That is actually one of my goals while I'm out of work. Finish all the half finished stuff. *bg*Delete
