Relationships with other signs: Gemini are compatible with other air signs – Libra and Aquarius, they can establish friendly relationship with Aries and Leo but there is tension between him and other mutable signs – Pisces and Virgo.Nature: Gemini often curiously collect information and share them further with journalistic neutrality. They can manage it without taking sides. The information exchange is often more important to them than the information itself which may result in superficiality. Gemini often do not take things seriously and make excuses about their own position using dexterous arguments. Gemini usually see things in a broader perspective and are not capable of real interest. They can cleverly and ingeniously exploit advantages that result from their various relationships. This active nature loves changes and excitement therefore it will hardly let anyone harness it. Their mental restlessness is reflected by their body which is why they should neutralise their nervousness through motion. With their brightness and esprit they can quickly ingratiate themselves with people around. Gemini tend to be adaptable, universal, talkative and smart, but on the other hand, they may be unstable, scattered, unfocused, volatile, very nervous and also intriguers. They are master clowns and pranks, they duplicate, dissipate, imitate perfectly and feel the urge to amaze or even shock the others, so they can feel they are alive. Gemini are usually familiar with various areas and may lose focus on their real goals. Sometimes it is said that two souls live in a Gemini person which causes his mood to change violently and groundlessly - it is a person of reason who cannot exist without constant mental stimulation and likes to percept all the forms of a particular fact. Gemini are masters of uncovering the differences, but they also simplify and doubt everything – they do not hesitate to thoughtlessly question even the sacred and the noble. They are characterised by great enthusiasm when they are about to start something new or to share it further. They tend to start a lot of things but never to finish them. They are interested in their surroundings and always try to establish contacts. They are usually willing to chat in any situation because it is the only way to get the information which will satisfy their curiousness. It is easy for Gemini to learn new things, which merely proves their universality. A Gemini person resembles a butterfly – he flies everywhere but never stays anywhere. These people are always alert and often have rhetorical talent.
