Zodiac Symbols for Gemini
Dear Gemini, how I so love your energy! Your zodiac symbols are highly appropriate for your adaptability, flexibility and intelligence. Take yellow, for instance. Yellow is your governing color. Bright, radiant and symbolic of enthusiasm and ebullience. That's a Gemini sun-sign to a T.
I particularly appreciate Gemini's quick wit. Gemini tend to have a fabulous ability to communicate clearly - and they get their point across succinctly. Air is Gemini's ruling element, and this is a big factor in your ability to think, speak and react well. Air is the element of communication. Think about cell phones, and WiFi. All that data speeding through the ethers. Gemini has intricate networks of intellect emitting from them all the time. No wonder you have such bright ideas!
As you'll see, Gemini's zodiac symbols mimic these and other qualities of the sign. Stuff like curiosity, participation, persuasiveness, charm and much more. Exploring Gemini symbols is a great way to tap into amazing aspects of your personality.
Oh, and please note...these zodiac symbols are based on Gemini sun-signs. Your astrological chart is replete with many different kinds of signs. For example, you may be a Taurus moon sign, or Aquarius may have a huge influence in one of your houses. Sound confusing? It isn't really.
Ponder the light of the sun. It exposes what is in the shadow. Same with your sun-sign. Sun-signs are the public aspect we present to the world - the part of us that is most easily seen (metaphorically, by the sun shining upon us).

So, without further ado, let's take a look at the key zodiac symbols for the sign of Gemini.
Twin glyph: Such an innocent looking symbol - but it packs a whallop in meaning. The dual vertical lines represent the twins. Twins are a big deal for Gemini (indeed, the word "Gemini" means "twins" in Latin). Why? Because Gemini often deal with a dual nature. It's as though they experience two sides within themselves. This can be a great asset in respects to balance, give-and-take, seeing both sides of situations. It can also lead to discomfort if there is conflict between opposing views, emotions, etc., within Gemini. I talk more about the twin-Gemini effect later in this article.
Although Gemini's dual nature can be tumultuous if conflicting sides from within are experienced, the symbol is also a reminder of perfect harmony. Consider the perfectly even vertical lines, underscored and topped with perfect horizontal lines. This is a motif that symbolizes true balance. Consider the square made in the Gemini glyph. Squares and rectangles are symbolic of strong foundation. In this perspective, the glyph confirms Gemini has the ability to construct a balanced life and environment, which leads to wholeness and peacefully resolving conflict.
When I contemplate zodiac symbols (or any symbol, for that matter) I love to stretch my mind to see beyond the mundane. Gemini's do this too. That's why your glyph is so cool. Why? Because it is the symbol of the Gate-Keeper. Looking at the glyph, there appears a doorway. This speaks to Gemini's ability to open the door to new ideas. Gemini's keen ability to communicate is the way-maker for new concepts and great innovations!
Air: As mentioned, Gemini is intimately linked with the air, and all airy energies. Air is untamed. It can't easily be contained. Gemini is a similar personality...not too quick to get pinned down to any one idea, opinion or even commitment. I rather like this Gemini trait. Without your spirited, independent, airy ways - the world would be a terribly bland place.
Air is the traveler of the elements, and Gemini can be too. Gemini's tend to wander. They blow and breeze in and out of various ports. This isn't restricted to physical travel, although Gemini's can be great nomads. Gemini's airy waves wander through the realm of intellect too. This air-affiliated sign can pack their bags and easily travel through mind, spirit, emotion as well as the world.
Lavender: The symbolic meaning of lavender is linked with expansion. Ever been graced by the sign of sprawling fields of lavender? It spreads like wildfire. That's a metaphor for Gemini's expansive influence. What's more, lavender is a healing salve. Gemini's are too. Gemini has a gift to bring delight, joy and healing to those in need. They leave a sweet presence in their wake, and often remind others of the bright side of life. Whole, healthy Gemini's are incredibly productive. Take a look at a passel of happy lavender, and it's the same as looking at a happy Gemini. Giving beauty, lending brilliance, and leaving the world with a remarkably bright spot in their midst.
Agate: The agate is linked to Gemini because of its unifying properties. The twin nature of Gemini is what makes them unique, highly functioning and capable. Nevertheless, Gemini needs to be aware of their polarities in order to make all their parts work in harmony. Observe agate. You'll see a myriad of colors, veins, speckles, variables. But the stone as a whole is cohesive, super-strong, and lovely in all its diversity. This is the ultimate potential for Gemini. Agate will enhance strength and unity for Gemini's so they can combine all their variables to create a beautiful whole.
Twins: The constellation Gemini is based on the mythological twins, Castor and Pollux. One is immortal, the other mortal. Herein lies the very cool duplicity of Gemini. If we look deeply into the Gemini psyche, we can see an understanding of both tangible (physical) and intangible (spiritual/emotional/intellectual) worlds. This positions Gemini as capable of being tremendously in-tune with the opposites that govern all of life. Light vs. dark, life vs. death...these are heavy concepts that Gemini has the potential to tackle with ease. This capacity to handle archetypal opposites comes from their long heritage with the starry twins.
Hopefully this article on zodiac symbols for Gemini has offered more insight into this dynamic personality. Gemini, in all their diversified glory is worth knowing - and their symbols are a great way to tap into Gemini's remarkable aspects.
