For those who believe in it, astrology can be a powerful tool for introspection and self-knowledge — or you can use it to talk shit about your ex and obsess over your crush. Journey with us as we do both, and then head to the comments to live your truth.

Geminis are like clouds. Make of that what you will.

Lots of direct eye contact (is that a positive? a negative? you decide).

I love Geminis, to be honest. It’s less that the stereotypes towards them are false and more that I’ve found Geminis’ specific brand of confusing, drive-my-Capricorn-ass-crazy behavior to be more honest. Let’s face it. Most people are a bit two-faced. Geminis are actually upfront about their two-facedness and I appreciate it!

As a Gemini, every time I’ve dated a Gemini I realize why people hate us.
Stef Schwartz, Vapid Fluff Editor
HARD NO. A majority of my major heartbreaks have been caused by Geminis, to the point where I will literally walk out on a first date if someone cops to being a goddamn Gemini. As a Scorpio, I am very obsessively focused and intense; I need to know exactly where I stand with my partner and I will let them know constantly. A flaky, mercurial air sign is exactly the perfect recipe to drive a Scorpio nuts. I have a lot of friends who are Geminis and are perfectly acceptable human beings, but I would never date them in a million years. NEVER AGAIN.

Some of my favourite exes are Geminis.
Rachel , Interm Literature Editor
Well, full disclosure I divorced one somewhat recently, so my impressions are not the most positive. I have dated in varying levels of seriousness and commitment two Geminis, and both of them were charming, creative, very fun, great to party with, and also completely chaotic and inconsistent. Geminis are like if an Irish goodbye was a person. In my experience they were totally unreliable as partners — not in the way where they were deliberately flaky, but because they truly didn’t know themselves what they wanted or could commit to, or would change their mind about it 10 minutes later. My thing is always that I can make anything work as long as you’re honest and clear about it, and god bless those Geminis’ hearts, they are truly incapable of doing that!
I still find Geminis very fun and cool as friends — y’all are very smart and you’re a great time! — but will be taking a pass on dating them.

Positive: will come up with the coolest and most random shit to do, super fun and creative, very good at a party, sex can be pretty fun.
Negative: literally need a diagram to explain a very simple point, they get caught up on everything and nothing at the same time and expect you to follow through that process? They’re so unclear in their communication you cannot trust anything they say at the end of the day because they will inevitably not be accountable for anything they said and take you on another road to avoid the first point, which makes it so difficult to communicate.

As a Gemini, any time I have gotten involved with a Gemini, it just doesn’t really work out. That’s just a lotta chaotic energy bouncing off each other all at once.
