Gemini - Vedic Astrology“There is nothing wrong with duality
as long as it does not create conflict.
Multiplicity and variety without strife is joy.”
—Nisargadatta Maharaj

The symbol for Gemini is a pair of twins or a couple, bringing to mind the dual nature of this sign. People with important planets in Gemini will often have a variety of interests. It is not unusual for a Gemini to multitask and to have different projects needing attention at the same time.

Gemini expresses intelligence and flexibility. Its ruler, Mercury, can give dexterity, and people who have planets in this sign are often good at working with their hands.

In its lower manifestation, Gemini can express a restless and nervous energy. Geminis can be hasty and changeable.

Gemini is an air sign, revealing an intellect that loves to learn and process information. Those with important planets in this sign will often demonstrate strong communication skills.
