These Gemini Quotes Personify The Zodiac’s Most Mercurial Sign

Twins are a mystery to most (even themselves).

If there ever was an equally amusing and contradictory zodiac sign, it would be your little Gemini. One minute they're bouncing around chatting to everyone who will listen to them talk about their latest interest (because they're curious about all the things), and the next minute, they're deep in thought and want to be left alone to process. Ruled by the planet Mercury, Geminis are mercurial in nature and can appear to have a split personality sometimes, much like the twins they represent. That makes "figuring out" a Gemini practically impossible — but Gemini quotes can at least give you a bit more insight into this often intense and flighty sign.

Whether you're a Gemini, in a relationship with one, or raising one, you know they're complex creatures. Their home planet rules communication, making Geminis fantastic writers and speakers — basically verbal ninjas. And because they love to talk so much, Geminis are social butterflies. They love to make people laugh and are always up for a good time. But their air element adds to their "head up in the sky" whimsy, making it difficult for them to concentrate and stay grounded. They can easily spend all day thinking and dreaming big things, changing their minds about a million times.

Still, for all their zany energy, Geminis are diehard intellectuals and can outsmart and outwit anyone and everyone. While they might not be easy to nail down, Geminis are charming creatures who are open to exploring all of life's wonders — as long as it suits them. Famous Geminis include Natalie Portman, Jewel, Angelina Jolie, and Courteney Cox. Curious to learn more about the surprising twins? Read on.
