Johnny Depp, Angelina Jolie, Paul McCartney, Marilyn Monroe, Che Guevara, Rick Riordan, Adriana Lima, Donald Trump, John F. Kennedy and Hugh Laurie (yes, the awesome Dr. House) all have one thing in common, well, aside from being successful in their respective fields, they are all Geminis!
If you’re a Gemini, you’re probably grinning right now because even though you might not be celebrity-like famous (yet), you belong in the league of talented and awesome people that are Geminis.

That’s why they are considered as one of the smartest among the zodiac. Their minds constantly move… and so are their bodies. Yet surprisingly, Geminis look younger than their years. They love new experiences and always crave changes in their lives. Hence, they’re quite elusive individuals and pinning them down guarantees to be a big challenge.
Gemini is a sign of duality. Pretty much explains why the twins serve as its symbol. Geminis have dual or sometimes, multiple behaviors. Hence, they are capable of looking at a situation from different perspectives and react accordingly. However, this makes them often confused as they sometimes can’t distinguish one behavior from the other. It also makes them perceived as inconsistent and fickle-minded which can be a big problem by the people surrounding them. Most importantly, this trait is the one that makes them stand out because being with a Gemini is like experiencing the best of both worlds, highs and lows, opposite poles, and the yin and yang of everything. Their unpredictability is exciting and will always keep anyone challenged.
