Gemini - The Twins
(May 22 - June 21)
Gemini is the sign of The Twins. Geminis are usually bright and quick witted. The old adage that two heads are better than one certainly applies to those born under the sign of Gemini. They enjoy using their intellectual talent, and also show remarkable creativity. But in their eagerness to complete more than one task at a time, often nothing gets accomplished at all or if it does, it is rarely on time. This situation can often be improved by pairing the Gemini with a "twin" of a more steady nature on time-sensitive projects.
