Gemini signs, born between the dates of May 21st and June 21st, are playful, curious, intellectual and often chatty and quick-witted. Represented by the Twins, Gemini signs are the perfect mix of the yin and the yang–many joke that they have an alter ego that makes up their persona. (Co-founder, Timmi, is a gemini and when she does something uncharacteristic, she says that’s her evil twin Tammy making an appearance). Gemini signs seek diversity, enthralling themselves in projects and activities of all kinds. They are truly the jack-of-all-trades, living with the intention of discovering their own version of the truth. Like Aquarius and Libra, Gemini is an air element, notorious for their incredible lightness of being. Connecting with one of your Gemini stones enhances your strengths and supports you through any weaknesses.
These traits represent the sun sign in Gemini, which influences your nature and instincts. Your ascendant, or rising sign, and your moon sign also influence your personality and desires. Your rising sign can sometimes be “more accurate” than your sun sign, because it determines how others perceive you. Your moon sign is connected with your inner self and determines how you handle fears and emotions. The combination of your sun, rising and moon signs all influence your personality. Gemini stones and crystals support and accentuate these aspects of yourself. Finding the perfect stone for Gemini may depend on whether you’re a sun, moon or ascendant Gemini. Each of the Gemini crystals is powerful in different ways, so the best way to choose is to see which stone best aligns with your goals and resonates with you the most.
