The personality of the person born under the Western astrological twins sign of Gemini is known to be very witty and bright. When these people are born within the 5 yearly reign of the Monkey and his character influence they are believed to be very lively individuals. As children these personalities are highly entertaining and usually carry some of these sociable bubbly traits through to adulthood. The Gemini Monkey generally has a cheerful, amusing and optimistic attitude to life and rarely seems to suffer from low moods or bad tempers. They can however still often experience the need to take time out and have a break from daily routines.
Gemini Monkey Traits
A Gemini Monkey has a friendly open personality that quickly understands new ideas and does not find it difficult to make adjustments. These are usually what you see is what you get type of personalities, who present themselves without hiding anything. They like other people to view them as exactly as they are but can be accused of not putting enough effort in their appearance. The Gemini Monkey is mostly happy with themselves inside and does not feel the need to give much thought to their attire. They often prefer comfort over style in a lot of areas of their life.
With such an entertaining chatty personality the Gemini Monkey is seldom considered boring. Their quick active minds can always be relied upon to liven up any conversation and keep relationships fresh and fun. These people can be deep thinkers who tend to enjoy expressing themselves verbally and sharing their thoughts with others. With friends it will be expressed as an understanding sociability and with lovers it will materialize as considerate passion. In their chosen career the Gemini Monkey individual frequently brings a cheery, versatile and hard working persona to the workplace. They will generally highly motivate and generate a group of people and so are some of the most suitable choices for most managerial positions.
Not much bothers the Gemini Monkey personality if they are able to find ways to utilize and express their views and opinions. They seem to thrive on communicating and have an ability to be able to be highly skilled at getting their messages across. They are not loud in their manner but they can be very persuasive with their choice of words making them effective communicators. The Gemini Monkey, with his or her cogent gift of speech, often makes an excellent spokesperson for the debating of important issues or promoting good causes. They can articulate themselves well and with some degree of confidence especially if they are passionate about the subject.
The Gemini Monkey character has an well intentioned, rounded amiable personality but it is sometimes weakened. Within these particular personalities the mischieveous and sneaky negative Monkey characteristics appear. If the Gemini Monkey suspects that they are being decieved in any way they can be known to use underhand tactics to get to the truth. Their high intelligence makes a Gemini Monkey difficult to deceive so these traits do not put in an appearance very often.
Gemini Monkey Compatibility (Love & Friendship)
For such naturally social people, Gemini Monkeys can have a difficult time maintaining relationships. To be quite honest, they are extremely self-centered and rarely put the needs of others before their own. This is not to say that they are mean-spirited, or even rude. They simply listen to their instincts (which tell them to follow the most interesting idea at the moment) and ignore social niceties (which tell them to be polite and pretend to care about things they don’t). Those who know them well understand this and forgive their unintentional slights, but those who don’t are often offended by what they consider a lack of manners.
Love is the most challenging part of a Gemini Monkey’s life. Romantic relationships are rarely something they seek out but commonly fall into. The inadvertent mysteriousness, clever wit, and always interesting stories of a Gemini Monkey make it easy to attract potential partners, but the self-absorption, disorganized lifestyle, and need to live on the edge make it difficult for long-term relationships to flourish. Gemini Monkeys can’t understand what it is they did to make their partner leave, but ask the partner and not only will they have very specific reasons, but will insist that they have told their ex-partner these reasons many times over.
Gemini Monkeys bounce back easily, and most end up slowing down enough to offer the necessary stability to keep from scaring off a partner later in their lives. Those who don’t learn to control their impetuous nature will eventually feel the wear of a lack of meaningful relationships. Getting past their own need for excitement and exploration and starting to dedicate parts of themselves to others is often the very life purpose of this sign.
Gemini Monkey Business (Career & Goals)
Though they seem to know a little about everything, Gemini Monkeys don’t tend to be experts in any one thing. The proverbial “jack of all trades”, this Primal Zodiac sign loves to explore new facts, ideas, and theories and will immediately drop a project to move on to something else when their interests change. This can make finding the perfect career difficult for members of this sign, as there is rarely an employer offering the type of job that fits this ever-shifting side of their personality.
All and all, Gemini Monkeys often do best working on their own. This might be surprising as they are highly social creatures, but rules and regulations are just not a good fit for Gemini Monkeys. As smart and learned as they often are, it’s not surprising for members of this sign to get fired from jobs for refusing to follow the leader. Luckily, they rarely care. Gemini Monkeys are great at acquiring money, though they tend to spend it as quickly as it comes.
For this reason, many find success in investment trading, such as playing the stock or commodities markets. The constant flux of stock values combined with the effect on the markets by the latest news and financial reports combined with the excitement of the risk-taking makes a job like day trading the perfect fit for this sign. Gemini Monkeys should be careful, though, not to get addicted to gambling, which should not be considered a career. This is a sign that can easily become overconfident and lose sight of the risks.
More risk-averse Gemini Monkeys tend to find their passion in much simpler tasks. They love to engage with a lot of different people throughout the day and don’t need a fancy office or big title to impress others. They are most comfortable on the move, so jobs like taxi driver, bus driver, or door-to-door salesperson make surprisingly excellent careers for this sign.
