Crystals For Gemini
If you were born from May 21st to June 20th, you are a Gemini.
The Sun is in Gemini when the Earth is approaching summer. Gemini is also known as the Sign of the Inventor and its symbol depicts twins. People who are born under Gemini can see both sides of an issue. Their moods can change quickly because they easily adapt to new settings. These people are very flexible and go with the flow. They can be very lively and talkative or restless and nervous depending on their environment. Those born when the Sun is in Gemini are quick thinkers, quick-witted, and quick on their feet. They are naturally curious and clever. If they are not occupied or interested in something though, they tend to get extremely bored and begin fidgeting. They are also up for any kind of game. Any time, any where - and they are ready to play.
Zodiac Sign: Gemini
Ruling House: Third
Ruling Planets: Mercury
Since Geminis are a mix of the yin and the yang, they are represented perfectly by the Twins. The Gemini-born can easily see both sides of an issue, a wonderfully practical quality. Less practical is the fact that you're not sure which Twin will show up half the time. Geminis may not know who's showing up either, which can prompt others to consider them fickle and restless. While their effusiveness may be misconstrued as scheming by some, Geminis generally have their hearts in the right place. It's that ample energy which can also paint them as scatterbrained and unfocused, but behind all that zipping around, the Twins are busily filing all that good data away.
The Gemini Sun Stone, Agate, figures prominently in recorded history, and has been prized as long as we have records. Agates when worn by those born when the Sun is in Gemini have the ability to attract strength, and they offer protection from bad dreams. If you are a Gemini, wear agate when you feel stressed or pressured. It will help you deal with the stress, and it will calm you, letting you know that "this will pass" and things will get better. Agates also are used for forgiveness, protection, strength and courage. They also are especially helpful in building self-esteem.
Chalcedony stones are also associated with Gemini. Many of the ancient citizens were not able to tell chalcedony and agate stones apart. They called all the Chalcedony stones "agates." It is only in modern times when we have separated them. Therefore, many chalcedony stones work very well for Geminis, such as Blue Chalcedony. Blue Chalcedony is a demure crystal, subtle and mystic, cool and serene, ethereal yet solid. It has an inviting, soft blue translucence, and an almost imperceptible movement within the stone that invokes a stillness of silent reverence. It's calming, and speaks of spirit and trust. Chalcedony eases self-doubt and brings a helpful peace to inner reflection. It can remove hostility and encourage a light-hearted optimism.
Agate is beneficial in self-analysis and uncovering hidden circumstances that might interfere with well-being. It promotes self-acceptance and confidence, encouraging the speaking of one's own truth.
What Authors Say About Crystals
Apatite is related to service and to the development of the humanitarian pursuits - it is attuned to healing, storing information, communicating, balancing energy, and teaching.
This stone's static electricity is in harmony with the lively nature of Gemini. Amber will help those born under this sign to recharge their batteries when their energy runs low. This beautiful yellow stone also protects against bad moods.
As one born under the sun sign of Gemini, you have quite a few choices about which crystals are really right for you. The great strength of the Gemini-born is in their ability to communicate effectively and to think clearly. Adventures of the mind are what the Twins are all about. They also love to share themselves with their friends, and they make for charming companions. They can be wishy-washy, too, changing their mood on a simple whim. The downside of their curious minds, however, can be a lack of follow-through. We suggest you use stones to enhance and balance your Gemini qualities such as Agate and Blue Chalcedony. You can also 6try crystals other authors recommend such as Apatite and Amber.
