I'm a Gemini

Sign of the Twins

Strengths: Clever, Creative, Witty
Weaknesses: Restless, Scheming, Indecisiveness

"Geminis are a mix of the yin and the yang, and they are well represented by the Twins. The Gemini-born can easily see both sides of an issue."

"Geminis don't really know what they want. They think they know, but then it changes."

"As a Gemini when you are happily occupied most of the time, there are less chances of you getting frustrated."

"Gemini is likely to scatter their energy on multiple things and not center on only one thing, leaving a trace of incomplete tasks."

"Geminis will take a position, say their opinion, make a decision, and then entirely change their mind the next day."

I'm so true to my sign. I pride myself on being a Gemini, but sometimes it's a curse. Even the smallest task like writing a list takes tremendous thought and energy, because I keep changing my mind and wondering about everything else.

For everything I want to believe, I also consider the opposite. 

Like recently, I've been trying to see this unemployment as a good thing; a door to a new beginning, a chance to do what I really want, an opportunity to go after my dreams. I get really excited, and then once the idea settles, I talk myself out of it. It's exhausting!

But then I woke up this morning and checked my horoscope... and you know what it said?

"Don't let someone talk you out of a dream, Gemini. You have had a brilliant idea recently. Maybe you shared it with someone. and maybe that person has discouraged you from pursuing it. You can see this person's point- after all your dream may seem far-fetched, impractical, or unrealistic. But that certainly doesn't mean it isn't possible. People have climbed Mt. Everest and launched rockets into outer space- certainly your dream is far less "impractical" than that. Take a chance on yourself, and start pursuing a lofty, big, and very important dream."

That other person it mentions is none other than myself... the negative side to me that doubts all goodness and positivity. 

This year, I'm going to make my best attempt at not listening to that other side, even though it's tempting. 

I won't let go of my dreams, I won't be afraid to fail, and I won't turn back. 

2012 will be my year, and it will be great. 


  1. The "other side" is evil! Try to crush it out with the positive happy side! Happy is always better! :)
    Good luck & happy 2012, Kristen!

  2. As a fellow Gemini, I completely agree w/ this assessment! My inner nay-sayer tries to talk me out of my dreams incessantly, but I'm learning to ignore it and take a stab at my dreams anyway. It's hard and a little scary but so worth it!

  3. Thanks for sharing...I'm a Gemini. Even my hair color is two-toned (naturally occuring).

    My wife finds it fascinating when she catches me in an animated conversation...with myself. LOL

  4. whoa...that horoscope hit home today..I'm a gemini and am constantly struggling to make up my mind! Love your blog btw

  5. Oh my gosh, thank you for posting this! It's like I could have written this myself! :P I too have been looking at unemployment in a positive way and as an opportunity to do all the little things I love (like blogging and design) but it just feels like everyone else around me is trying to convince me to go back to paid work (as if it's really that easy, lol).

    So thanks for reminding me that as a Gemini it is my birth right to be an indecisively creative scatterbrain. :P

    I think you summed it up well in your post; 2012 will be whatever you make of it. When the cookie crumbles, you only have yourself to blame for any regrets you carry!

    On a side note, I love reading horoscopes (when they confirm the decisions I've already made) :P
