“I’m My Obsession”
Negative Geminis are good-looking icons of sick or sleazy behavior, blurting out statements that would embarrass any other sign. When disaster strikes, they can spin it so that the worse they are, the better they seem. Visit hookers? Name your baby “North West”? Divorce your wife who has cancer? Gemini says, “Who wouldn’t? Why not?”
Positive Geminis are adaptable and hilariously witty. Negative Gemini, anxious to escape the life they have made, fixates on short-term solutions: the next deal, the next marriage, the next job or fix or wisecrack. Walking alongside a negative Gemini you can feel how invisible you are to him or her.
Gemini’s goal is to be a god and historically great and have a line of signature merchandise and a band: a teenage dream. Gemini males openly pursue that dream. The females, like Angelina Jolie (birthday, June 4), evangelist Joyce Meyer (June 4), or Laura Ingraham (June 19) might hide their ambition under saintly or churchly behavior and, when they’re rich, say everybody else is just jealous.
Geminis are called “two-faced,” but the constellation Gemini represents identical twins with the same face. Negative Gems are their own mirrors and are simply twice as conceited.
My greatest pain in life is that I will never be able to see myself perform live.”
— Kanye West, Gemini
The many great Gemini athletes, such as tennis players Novak Djokovic (May 22) and Venus Williams (June 17), draw from their Sun sign extra physical energy and competitive spirit. But a Gemini sitting alone mulling on fixed ideas about UFOs or raspberry ketones or Joᴅιᴇ Foster can be a menace to society.
When not harping on their important personal mission, they’re playing games with people’s minds and winning. Money and fame naturally flow their way and they can monetize the jerkiest ideas and behavior. Sure they’ll sign book and movie contracts and sell the rights to photos of their kids. A study of 1000 English millionaires showed that the highest percentage were Geminis.
I have enormous personal ambition. I want to shift the entire planet. And I’m doing it. I am now a famous person. I represent real power.”
— Newt Gingrich, Gemini
Gemini and Relationships
Take it as a blessing when a Gemini loved one runs off or backs away. You don’t want the amoʀᴀʟ ones with short attention spans.
Superficial in bed, negative Geminis are excited mainly by illegal or illicit sᴇx. Cases in point: former New York governor and bordello client Eliot Spitzer (June 10), John F. Kennedy (May 29), and South Carolina governor Mark Sanders (May 28), who vanished from his job and home for five days to fly to Argentina for sᴇx. The dating site Ashley Madison, with 17 million users, found that the biggest cheaters were Gemini women. Google “Angelina cheat” and you’ll get 1,250,000 results.
Negative Geminis don’t love—they possess—and rarely laugh except at their own jokes. Often they got warped growing up. Some Geminis, like Joan Rivers (June 8), succeed by building on their spazziest traits. Talented Geminis eventually learn that attention and fame aren’t substitutes for friends, and in their loneliness some are tempted and ruined by substance abuse.
Truth isn’t truth.”
— Rudy Giuliani, Gemini
Often without inner resources, talentless Geminis run on instinct or substances or by siphoning someone else’s energy. Tyrannizing a friend, spouse, parent, roommate, employee or child—anyone in their litterbox—is just practice for doing it to others. Some will apologize and man-splain or woman-splain, and people call them two-faced, but it’s all part of their mission: to be a god or goddess. That’s not a rational goal, but they’re not rational.
When former New York mayor Rudy Giuliani (May 28) said “Truth isn’t truth,” he captured the essence.
Next Halloween, Dress Up Like a Gemini
Listing the negative Geminis not yet named is probably the best way to further explore this sign’s dark side. These people inspire Halloween costumes. Of course they have good traits—especially nerve. There’s also a highly developed ability to leave a bad taste in the mouth of the whole culture.
We would all love to be irresponsible, hype our personal greatness, star on our own TV show and be a rocker or rapper. A negative Gemini does all that and has the Gemini “Teflon” advantage: In the biggest paradox of all, people adore and admire negative Gemini, wishing they had the nerve to act like such a drainhole.
