Within the zodiac, Gemini is an air sign, unlike the earth signs, which are represented by Capricorn, Taurus and Virgo.

Being an air sign for Gemini means having a particular taste for communication, reflection, exchange, curiosity and intelligence. Very often associated with duality, the sign is often represented with twins as if to illustrate the binarity which can be seen in Gemini people.

What are the dates of the sign of Gemini and its decans?

An astrologer will tell you that Gemini is a person born between the 21st of May and the 21st of June and whose parent planet is Mercury. This period is therefore divided into three parts called decans, and includes the following dates:

  • 1st decan is from May 21 to May 31: Gemini born in this period is characterised by a lively intelligence but may be at risk of being unstable.
  • 2nd decan: June 1 to June 10: Geminis born in this period are characterised by dynamism and good resistance to stress. Although they have a bad habit of getting angry quickly and being touchy.
  • 3rd Decadent: June 11 to June 21: Geminis born at this time have an innate skill and ability to revive after difficult times. Although they may have an irregular lifestyle, they are quick to change and move.

The decan allows the characteristics of a sign to be nuanced or accentuated based on the planet that rules it. For example, a Gemini in the first decan will have a behavioural difference from someone born in the second decan.

The decan therefore provides additional information to nuance the portrait of a sign and its ascendant. In other words, this means that the decan is as important as the ascendant since it increases or decreases the influence of the major star that governs the sign.

Astro: What are the characteristics of the Gemini zodiac sign?

In astrology, Gemini is an air sign like Libra and Aquarius. Being an air sign is synonymous with action and drive.

Gemini's personality makes them people who need mental and intellectual stimulation in their relationships.

They are characterised by their strong taste for renovation and change. This means that their temperament and character traits can allow Gemini to move on quickly if the situation is too boring for them.

Astro: What are the qualities found in Geminis?

The ruling planet attributed to the sign of Gemini is Mercury, symbol of movement. This is why Gemini is one of the zodiac signs that hates routine. But how is this reflected in their qualities?

Here is a list of qualities that can be found in the sign of Gemini:

  • Funny: Gemini will know how to bring some fun to your parties. Laughing and having a good time, that he knows how to do!
  • Sociable: Gemini can appreciate meeting new people, shyness is not something he knows!
  • Adventurous: Geminis enjoy taking risks and trying new things.

Now that you know all of Gemini's qualities, what about their faults?

Astro: What are Gemini's faults?

The reputation of Gemini is such that it is a sign of the zodiac often associated with ambivalence capable of disturbing those around them. In truth, things are more complex than that. We explain.

Below, you will find the main faults that can be found in Gemini:

  • Unpredictable: Unlike Capricorns who like to plan everything in advance, Gemini can take you on a trip or a V.I.P. party by improvising everything! This can sometimes make them hard to follow.
  • Too curious: Geminis love to gossip, which can sometimes backfire! We're not saying that Geminis are paparazzi incarnate, but we mustn't forget that curiosity killed the cat, even if it does allow us to get to the bottom of things.
  • Superficial: Geminis care a lot about their appearance and this can even go as far as ignoring the state of their wallet. They are not afraid to pay the price to be as presentable as possible.

Astro: Which signs are compatible in love with Gemini?

The signs with which Gemini would be most likely to establish a love compatibility are Libra, Virgo and Sagittarius. What consequences can this have on their love life?

  • Libra and Gemini are two signs with a light-hearted spirit that can quickly settle disagreements!
  • Virgo and Gemini are both curious and funny, and their commonality brings them together, even if Gemini's independent nature can get in the way of Virgo's dedication.
  • Sagittarius and Gemini get along wonderfully and would share the same taste for travel and movement.

There is also the astrological sign of Leo, which would be an ideal person for Gemini. Indeed, Leo would be the best sign of the zodiac to stabilize the Gemini and offer them the necessary confidence to follow their intuition.

While Gemini's sociability and open-mindedness allow them to get along with all types of people, the fact that they are constantly on the move makes them difficult for other zodiac signs.

Astro: Which signs to avoid in love when you're a Gemini?

The signs with which Gemini would be the most incompatible in love are Taurus, Cancer and Scorpio. We take stock for you on the incompatibilities with the Gemini:

  • Taurus and Gemini: These signs would be incompatible in love because Taurus would not be able to cope with the overactivity of Gemini. If you want to put two beings for which everything opposes together here is the winning combo!
  • Gemini and Cancer: These signs would clash because Gemini's over-absorption of information and Cancer's intense emotions would not fit together at all. Although opposites attract, their attraction would only be temporary and more likely to ignite.
  • Scorpio and Gemini: At the beginning, Gemini may be fascinated or simply interested by the aura of Scorpio. However, if Scorpio does not stop analysing Gemini's deceptiveness, this could jeopardise their relationship. We advise these two signs to be kind and patient in order to succeed in love!

That's it! Now you know everything about the sign of Gemini, whether it is their characteristics or the fact that they are not shy.

Do you recognise yourself in certain personality traits associated with Gemini? Do not hesitate to calculate your natal chart, also called astral chart, from the time, place and date of your birth.
