Such an innocent looking symbol - but it packs a whallop in meaning. The dual vertical lines represent the twins. Twins are a big deal for Gemini (indeed, the word "Gemini" means "twins" in Latin). Why? Because Gemini often deal with a dual nature. It’s as though they experience two sides within themselves. This can be a great asset in respects to balance, give-and-take, seeing both sides of situations. It can also lead to discomfort if there is conflict between opposing views, emotions, etc., within Gemini. I talk more about the twin-Gemini effect later in this article.
Although Gemini’s dual nature can be tumultuous if conflicting sides from within are experienced, the symbol is also a reminder of perfect harmony. Consider the perfectly even vertical lines, underscored and topped with perfect horizontal lines. This is a motif that symbolizes true balance. Consider the square made in the Gemini glyph. Squares and rectangles are symbolic of strong foundation. In this perspective, the glyph confirms Gemini has the ability to construct a balanced life and environment, which leads to wholeness and peacefully resolving conflict.
When I contemplate zodiac symbols (or any symbol, for that matter) I love to stretch my mind to see beyond the mundane. Gemini’s do this too. That’s why your glyph is so cool. Why? Because it is the symbol of the Gate-Keeper. Looking at the glyph, there appears a doorway. This speaks to Gemini’s ability to open the door to new ideas. Gemini’s keen ability to communicate is the way-maker for new concepts and great innovations!
Gemini Zodiac Symbol
Elemental Zodiac Symbol for Gemini
Air: As mentioned, Gemini is intimately linked with the air, and all airy energies. Air is untamed. It can’t easily be contained. Gemini is a similar personality...not too quick to get pinned down to any one idea, opinion or even commitment. I rather like this Gemini trait. Without your spirited, independent, airy ways - the world would be a terribly bland place.
Air is the traveler of the elements, and Gemini can be too. Gemini’s tend to wander. They blow and breeze in and out of various ports. This isn’t restricted to physical travel, although Gemini’s can be great nomads. Gemini’s airy waves wander through the realm of intellect too. This air-affiliated sign can pack their bags and easily travel through mind, spirit, emotion as well as the world.
Flowers as Zodiac Symbols for Gemini
Lavender: The symbolic meaning of lavender is linked with expansion. Ever been graced by the sign of sprawling fields of lavender? It spreads like wildfire. That’s a metaphor for Gemini’s expansive influence. What’s more, lavender is a healing salve. Gemini’s are too. Gemini has a gift to bring delight, joy and healing to those in need.
They leave a sweet presence in their wake, and often remind others of the bright side of life. Whole, healthy Gemini’s are incredibly productive. Take a look at a passel of happy lavender, and it’s the same as looking at a happy Gemini. Giving beauty, lending brilliance, and leaving the world with a remarkably bright spot in their midst.
Stones as Zodiac Symbols for Gemini
Agate: The agate is linked to Gemini because of its unifying properties. The twin nature of Gemini is what makes them unique, highly functioning and capable. Nevertheless, Gemini needs to be aware of their polarities in order to make all their parts work in harmony.
Observe agate. You’ll see a myriad of colors, veins, speckles, variables. But the stone as a whole is cohesive, super-strong, and lovely in all its diversity. This is the ultimate potential for Gemini. Agate will enhance strength and unity for Gemini’s so they can combine all their variables to create a beautiful whole.
Anthropomorphic Zodiac Symbols for Gemini
Twins: The constellation Gemini is based on the mythological twins, Castor and Pollux. One is immortal, the other mortal. Herein lies the very cool duplicity of Gemini. If we look deeply into the Gemini psyche, we can see an understanding of both tangible (physical) and intangible (spiritual/emotional/intellectual) worlds.
This positions Gemini as capable of being tremendously in-tune with the opposites that govern all of life. Light vs. dark, life vs. death... these are heavy concepts that Gemini has the potential to tackle with ease. This capacity to handle archetypal opposites comes from their long heritage with the starry twins.
