I will be the first to admit I do not know much when it comes to astrology or zodiac signs. What I do know is I am a Gemini and the symbols for them is twins. I also know I married a Gemini and somehow we balance each other well. So I did my research and was surprised about what I found out. What is your zodiac sign and does it fit with your personality?
You may not know this but with many of my blog posts I do research and this one was no different. So before I get into the meat of this post I want to share the websites I used to gather some info. You may find them helpful if you want to know more about your own zodiac sign. The two websites I used are Costarastrology and Astrology Zodiac Signs. I am going to put the qualities that fit my personality and then talk about the qualities that do not (according to me anyway. Ask someone else and they may say otherwise).
Date range: May 20-June 21

Geminis are suppose to have the traits of being very sociable, enjoying large crowds and very curious. They can be very funny with a childlike curiosity about the world. Eager to learn and know more and sharing what they know with friends. Great at communication and very responsive and sensitive to the other person. Depending on the mood they can be the life of the party or a complete wallflower who does not want to interact with others. Geminis are afraid of being alone so they tend to keep large social groups. They are known to react to their emotions and not think them through. This causes them concern about unintentionally hurting others and having their words misunderstood. Geminis are also very expressive especially with their facial features. When they fight they tend to contradict themselves and will turn your own words against you.
So there is a lot of information to break down when researching your zodiac sign but I did find some similarities. I am definitely a Gemini except in the fact that I do not have a large circle of friends and I usually hate large crowds. I can be very social depending on my mood. I usually consider myself an introvert but depending on how I feel and the vibes I am getting I can be sociable and the life of the party. Also, I have been told many times that I am funny. My one cousin even told me I should do comedy. I can be very quick witted and often times I will use humor as a crutch. I do this when I feel uncomfortable and do not know what to say. I am eager to always learn and believe this is one of the reason I wanted to become a nurse. Working in healthcare the learning never ends. I am horrible at communication and often times struggle to express my feelings. I always worry that what I say will hurt someone’s feelings and I generally hate confrontation. If you make me mad though I will be the first to attack and I can be relentless. I am 100% a Gemini when it comes to the fear of being alone. I actually just wrote a post sharing my fears and this was it! Read more>>>>What I am afraid of.
I am a very emotional person but as I have grown older I have learned to try and control them and not let them overpower me. Though I do run off emotions and can be quick to making decisions based on them. My expressiveness in my face has gotten me in trouble in the past and I have been told on numerous occasions that my face gives me away. When I was in nursing school an instructor told me I need to watch my facial expressions! Wearing masks right now helps me out in that area. I do not like to fight with people but when I do I tend to get flustered and contradict myself. The struggles of being a Gemini.
Here is the oddest thing. I am a Gemini and I am married to a Gemini. We actually have the same birthday but different years. You would think this would not work but we actually balance each other very well. I am emotionally driven and he is logically driven. We are both very different even though we have the same zodiac sign. What about you? Are you a Gemini? If not, what is your zodiac sign and do you think it fits your personality?
