Gemini’s are represented by twins, symbolizing their two different personalities.Sociable, communicative, and ready for fun with a tendency to suddenly become serious, thoughtful, and restless. Gemini is fascinated with the world itself, causing them to be extremely curious with a constant feeling like there isn’t enough time to experience everything. From birth, Gemini feels like their other half is missing so they are forever seeking new friends, mentors, colleagues, and people to talk to. Gemini’s changeable and open mind makes them excellent artists, writers, and journalists.
With Gemini being extremely active both physically and mentally due to the duality of their sign, Agate assists greatly with their ability to multitask. Agate is a grounding stone causing it to not only strengthen Gemini’s ability to tackle several tasks at once, but also encourages Gemini to pay more attention to details allowing them to see the bigger picture. Agate is invaluable when it comes to Gemini’s nervous nature, helping to lessen some of that daily tension. The only downfall of Agate is that it’s slow working, which can trigger Gemini’s natural impatience. This is where Tourmaline shines for Gemini. Another grounding stone with great benefits when it comes to the dual-natured sign. Tourmaline not only mirrors Agate’s abilities, but it is also fast-acting. Tourmaline can draw off negative energies and stabilize Gemini’s tendency to fly off into many directions at once.
One of the major challenges Gemini’s face is their ability to identify what exactly is the truth. Due to their open-mindedness and changeability, which are great traits in many perspectives, Gemini’s views on topics can be easily swayed one direction then be steered right back. Gemini’s Agate birthstone is great with helping them discern what is fact. Partnered with Apophyllite, Dendritic Chalcedony, or Topaz these stones can help you overcome your tendency to disregard facts that strike Gemini as inconvenient as well as assist with recognizing where they may have strayed and allow Gemini to return to their own truth.
Gemini’s mind is versatile, curious, over-active, and quick-witted, which leads to another challenge Geminis often face, mental stress. Several stones aid Gemini in this area. Aquamarine is extremely beneficial for calming the mind and removing extraneous thoughts. Similar to the stones above, Aquamarine is great at helping Gemini filter information and clarify their mental process. Calcite aids in practicing discernment, determining which information is important and what can be disregarded. While Howlite assists with sleep and meditation quieting the mind, which is great for the busy mind of the Gemini.
Gemini loves to talk about feelings, but when it comes to actually feeling them that is another matter entirely. Two stones that can help Gemini with getting in touch with themselves and expressing their emotions are Howlite and Variscite. Howlite encourages emotional expression while Variscite helps Gemini to reveal their true self to the world.
