Gemini is the sign of the zodiac for those born during 22 May - 21 June.

It is represented by a pair of twins. The simple black line symbol shown here is widely used to represent the astrological sign of Gemini.

As implied by the image that depicts the astrological sign of Gemini, adopting a twin-like similarity to other people is easy for Geminis. They can be excellent imitators and be extremely insightful in their understandings of others' thoughts and perspectives. These skills and attributes help many Geminis to maneuver themselves into favorable social and business situations. However, when executed too well, such characteristics can cause the typical Gemini to lose sight of his or her own talents and ideas by being too willing and able to adopt those of others. Sometimes they are accused of saying what others want to hear rather than what they really think, or what they know to be the truth.
People born under the sign of Gemini are often thought to be talkative, quick witted, and have an innate curiosity about everything. Their interest and enthusiasm for whatever is going on around them contributes to an appearance of youthfulness (both physical and psychological) that many to retain throughout life.
In many cases, Geminis find it difficult to concentrate on a single activity but rather are at their best when juggling several projects simultaneously.
