    Gemini Positive Side

    Gemini ( May 21 - Jun 20 ) Positive Side :

    The person born under this sign of the Heavenly Twins is usually quite bright and quickwitted. Some of them are capable of doing many different things. The Gemini person very often has many different interest. He keeps an open mind and is always anxious to learn new things.
    The Geminian is often an analytical person. He is a person who enjoys making use of his intellect. He is governed more by his mind than by his emotions. He is a person who is not confined to one view; he can often understand both sides to a problem or question. He knows how to reason; how to make rapid decisions if need be.
    He is an adaptable person and can make himself at home almost anywhere. There are all kinds of situations he can adapt to. He is a person who seldom doubts himself; he is sure of his talents and his ability to think and reason. The Geminian is generally most satisfied when he is in a situation where he can make use of his intellect. Never short of imagination, he often has strong talents for invention. He is rather a modern person when it comes to life; the Geminian almost always moves along with the times-perhaps that is why he remains so youthful throughout most of his life.
    Literature and art appeal to the person born under this sign. Creativity in almost any form will interest and intrigue the Gemini man or woman.
    The Geminian is often quite charming. A good talker, he often is the center of attraction at any gathering. People find it easy to like a person born under this sign because he can appear easygoing and usually has a good sense of humor.
