Emerald, agate and white sapphire for Gemini luck
The third sign of the Zodiac, Gemini finds its origins in the Gemini constellation. Between May 20 and June 21, the sun is said to cover this zodiac sign. This sun sign is symbolised by twins, an apt representation as Geminis are a perfect mix of ‘yin’ and ‘yang’. Gemini-born are known to have contrasting personality traits. While on one hand they can adapt to difficult situations, on the other hand they can also be quite indecisive and impulsive.
Characteristics: Think Gemini-born and the first words that come to mind are energetic, clever, witty, and easily adaptable. Traditionally, Geminis are known to be academically-inclined and are always eager to acquire more knowledge. In any party or gathering, they are always the star attraction as they are smart, quick-witted and always cracking jokes. Another positive Gemini personality trait is that they can practically view both sides of any issue and present an unbiased opinion. They are also known to be extremely independent as they live the world on their terms and will not be held back by others’ opinions.
Of course Geminis also have negative characteristics. They are famous for being wishy-washy and indecisive, and are known to change their decision at the drop of a hat. They are very restless and can get bored very easily. So if you are entertaining a Gemini, be prepared. This zodiac is also thought to be rather superficial.
