Symbol: The Twins
Thereâs a lot that a Gemini is often accused ofâŚ
âCan’t make up her mind… Is a flirt… Always confusedâŚ DisorganisedâŚÂ Controversial and HyperactiveâŚâ Well of course she is! Coz unlike most us other sane people… She has the brains and the mind of two… so there’s always a yin to her yang that she canât (and shouldnât) ignore!
Now that, in my mind, sort of makes Geminis doubly interesting! A Gemini woman, lives in dichotomies… Coz more often than not, the twins within her… Don’t agree with each other! But that’s what makes her so perceptive… Coz the twins enable her to look at things, people and situations from different angles… And evaluate and perceive from different perspectives!
Geminis are creative, expressive and live for experiences! They’re natural explorers with amazing communication skills! Oh yesâŚ communication skills!! They KNOW how to get their point acrossâŚ and while they often say things that are extremely politically incorrect, they are also quick to disguise and camouflage their goof-up in some good-natured silly humourâŚ which controls the damage without losing the essence of what they meant! (Am I right Mr. Gemini Wolf? ;))
Gemini is an Air sign… which means they crave FREEDOM! They hate things, people or situations that restrict or bind themâŚ and the same goes for clothes as well! Honestly, from all the Geminis that I knowâŚ I think theyâd prefer wearing the least amount of clothing on their body! (or none if, they had the chance! ;))âŚ And yet for some reasonâŚ theyâre the biggest hoarders and accessory addicts that I can think of!
They love layering their jewelleryâŚ chimes and charmsâŚ trinkets and things they can mix and match!
Reversible clothing, wearing the same garment multiple ways, layering and up-cyclingâŚ give them the kicks and satisfy both the twins within!
Gemini Style Symbols:
Music, Art and everything creative …
Being an Air sign, the best colour that represents the Gemini woman, is Yellow! Easy- breezy, bright, happy and full of life! You have to have an extremely vivacious personality like that of a Gemini to be able to carry any shade of yellow like it was made for you!
Arms & Shoulders:
Geminis are known to be excellent, but animated communicators who use a lot of hand gestures and movements. HenceâŚ sleeveless, off-shoulders and tube dresses would make for a Geminiâs go-to outfits.
Chimes and CharmsâŚ things that jiggle and make music. They love layering their jewelleryâŚ and especially love hand jewellery! (looks and has great impact with their expressive hands and animated gestures)
Also, they love all things Vintage and old â especially when it comes to jewellery! They tend to get sentimentally attached to little thingsâŚ which theyâll hoard till cows come home! đ
Heels arenât really their best friends. And while theyâre not averse to heels, they donât like the unnecessary posture and discomfort they bring, that kills their free vibe!
Â Bold & Free: Gemini women donât play it subtleâŚ neither in their attire, nor in their attitude. Bold lips, glitter, goldâŚ they can carry it all off brilliantly! Â (Think Angelina Jolie and Marilyn Monroe)
