It’s that time of the year for Gemini babes to shine! But if you’re a Gemini, then you probably knew this already. And sure, it’s all well and good to know that you’re one fantastic Gemini babe, but are you a Gemini expert? Test your Gemini knowledge, and read our 22 facts below to see how much you know about being a Gemini.

We’ll start with the basics. If you’re a Gemini, then you’re born sometime between the 21st of May, and the 20th of June, inclusive. So Gemini babes, remember this next time you’re at a party – you never know, you might be able to pick a fellow Gemini from their birthday!

2. Your ruling planet is Mercury.

Mercury was named for the ancient Roman god of messengers, who rules over communication, writing, and movement. Gemini, if you’re wondering why you’re so good at talking the ear off the person next to you, wonder no longer! You were born to chat. 

3. Geminis are expressive and quick-witted.

Communication isn’t just limited to talking. Geminis thrive off being active in a conversation, and that involves listening, too! And, in your case, being a bit of a joker. You’re the personification of a social butterfly. You draw energy from being around people, and that’s why most know you as an extrovert.

4. But, Geminis also have a serious side.

Instagram / @astro_allstarz

As the sign of the twin, Geminis can go from being bright and breezy, to serious, thoughtful, and restless. With your two very opposite sides, sometimes people can’t make head or tails of you.

5. Your curiosity makes you want to explore.

But what do you want to explore? The possibilities are endless! Maybe you want to travel, talk about ideas, discover a new culture – Geminis are absolutely fascinated by the world. And so, you forever feel like there’s just not enough time to experience everything that you want to experience.

6. You’re forever searching for your other half.

Instagram / @korkutbostanci

Another part of being the sign of the twin is this constant feeling that your other half is missing. This isn’t just in a romantic way, either. You seek new friends, mentors, and colleagues to bring out the best in you – and you in them.

7. You value a deep connection.

Instagram / @kattmartinezd

If anyone is lucky enough to get really close to you, they’ve found themselves a true friend. A Gemini like you sticks around, through thick and thin. That being said, you are guilty of sometimes stretching yourself a little too thin when it comes to making friends, and so you have plenty of acquaintances, too.

8. Yellow and green are a Gemini’s lucky colors.

Instagram / @kobata_growers

Wearing yellow and green can bring a Gemini luck! Beyond colors, your lucky numbers are three and five, and your lucky days are Wednesday and Thursday. 

9. You’re compatible with four other star signs.

Instagram / @marla_suzette

Love and friendship comes most easily to you with Aries, Leo, Libra, and Aquarius. Of course, your connection to Libra and Aquarius isn’t really that much of a surprise – they are also air signs, like you, Gemini! Air signs generally have light and breezy attitudes, meaning that you all get along like a house on fire. 

10. But, Geminis are least compatible with two-star signs.

Instagram / @tobias_eton

It might be wise to steer clear of Virgo and Pisces, Gemini. With Virgo’s penchant for perfectionism, and Pisces intense, emotional soul, they may be a bit much for your light-heartedness. Chances are, you’ll probably grind their gears, too.

11. Geminis mostly want fun from love and sex.

Instagram / @makeupbypita

You’re always up for an intellectual challenge, and the easiest way to your heart is through stimulating conversation. You need to know that someone’s just as good with words as they are in bed.

12. You may find it hard to settle down.

Instagram / @leabelle_

Since Geminis are all about movement, it means that when you jump into the dating pool, you may not be so keen on getting into people’s baggage. That being said, when you find The One, you’ll happily invest everything you have in the relationship.

13. Geminis get along well with children.

Instagram / @elzamante

Is it your friendliness that makes the little ones want to be around you? Or is it the fact that you understand that kids just need to narrate everything they do? Who knows. It doesn’t change the fact that you’re great with children.

14. You tend to avoid taking on responsibility.

Instagram / @frankvinyl

Especially in the home. After all, who really wants to be domestic, and waste time doing the laundry, and vacuuming, andpaying bills, and watering plants, and making beds, and tidying up, when there are so many other exciting things to do?

15. The best career path for you involves your brainpower.

Instagram / @princ3saaaaa

You like it best when your job engages with your smarts – and it’s even better if you spend your days multitasking and working with other people! Geminis generally suit being a trader, artist, inventor, writer, orator, preacher, journalist or lawyer.

16. Geminis are bad with money.

Instagram / @checks.co

But as far as you’re concerned, really, you’re pretty excellent with money. After all, why earn it if you’re not going to spend it? Money is a necessary evil for you, since in the wise words of Homer Simpson, “money can be exchanged for goods and services”. Or in your case, take you on your next adventure.

17. People love how flexible you are.

Instagram / @thegoalcreator

As a rule, Geminis tend to be pretty open-minded and easy-going. Sometimes your versatility influences your love life, too, which can make you a really interesting babe in bed.

18. Enthusiasm is your middle name.

Instagram / @stephhcardenas

Okay, maybe it’s not literally your middle name. But, it may as well be – your enthusiasm is always infectious, and it definitely makes you the life of the party! Everyone knows it’s going to be a wild time once you start drinking since a tipsy Gemini is an up-for-anything Gemini. 

19. Geminis suck at making decisions.

Instagram / @dreaamariie

Because you have this innate ability to think about different perspectives in every situation, you’re always of two minds about something. Remember: it always helps if you weigh up the pros and cons of your decisions!

20. You can’t resist gossip.

Instagram / @internetbt

For you, gossip isn’t about going on a power trip. You just really love the thrill of spilled tea – probably because if you were really honest with yourself, you can be a bit nosy sometimes.

21. You have two flowers associated with your sign.

Instagram / @clementwoo

Lavender and Lily of the Valley are considered Gemini flowers. 

22. As a Gemini, you share your sign with a pretty eclectic group of celebrities.

Instagram / @familyfaroficial

The list includes people like Donald Trump, Kanye West, Johnny Depp, Angelina Jolie, Prince, Paul McCartney, Marilyn Monroe, Serena Williams, Morgan Freeman, and Bob Dylan!

This Is The New Year’s Resolution For You Based On Your Zodiac Sign

The new year is the perfect time to set goals, make changes, and have a fresh start, but it can also be hard to figure out where to begin. Plus, 2021 isn’t just any new year – I mean take a look back at 2020, we have so much to turn the page from.

Well, one helpful place to start is to look to the stars. Based on their characteristics, every Zodiac sign has a potential goal they can work toward in 2021, despite whatever obstacles may be coming their way. Keep reading to find out about your sign’s resolutions, and cheers to a new year!

ARIES

aries

As one of the most restless signs, Aries are enthusiastic and can have a hard time sitting still. Lean into that need for stimulation and make a goal this year to find a new hobby — maybe playing a sport or learning an instrument — and see it all the way through to perfecting it. With Aries impatience, this may be difficult, but it’ll be worth the satisfaction when you accomplish it.

TAURUS

taurus

While you’re extremely strong and committed, this often can lead to stubbornness. In 2021, pick your battles. While your passion is admirable, sometimes compromise is necessary. Alleviate some stress by figuring out what is worth fighting for and what could be easily settled with mutual understanding.

GEMINI

gemini

A Gemini is known to be passionate but indecisive, and you tend to divide your focus among the variety of tasks you want to accomplish. This year, go easy on yourself! There’s no need to take on too many projects at once and get overwhelmed. Harness that passion towards something you really want, and work on that first.

CANCER

cancer

People often rely on their Cancer friends for help with a problem since Cancers are incredibly empathetic. In 2021, don’t be afraid to ask for help yourself. It’s great that you love being there for others, but let others be there for you too every once in a while.

LEO

leo

Leos have amazing confidence and bring a powerful presence to any room. In the new year, use that Leo energy toward a cause you feel passionate about. Plus, after the debacle of 2020, it would be a great time to get involved in your community and use your strong voice to make a change you’d like to see.

VIRGO

virgo

Virgos are incredibly organized and responsible, which are wonderful traits to have. But in 2021, in between scheduling and making to-do lists, remember to set aside at least a little bit of time each day to relax. It might be a challenge, but try not to sweat the small stuff, and instead put that energy toward some well-deserved self-care.

LIBRA

libra

As a Libra, you’re constantly seeking balance, but you hate change and are prone to analysis paralysis. To help with that Libran indecision, get into the habit of making pros and cons lists. It’s a great way to put your natural skills in logic to good use, and can help you feel more confident about your choices.

SCORPIO

scorpio

As one of the most emotional signs, you can sometimes let your feelings get the best of you in the forms of jealousy and secrecy. In the new year, make sure your friends and family know that you care about them. Whether it’s a trip, a gift, or quality time, go out of your way to show your loved ones how much they mean to you.

SAGITTARIUS

sagitarious

Being the most adventurous sign, a Sagittarius longs for freedom and exploration. Feed that restlessness by taking a trip this year to somewhere you’ve never been. Maybe it’s somewhere on another continent, or maybe it’s just the next town over, but find a place you’ve always wanted to check out to satisfy your constant wanderlust.

CAPRICORN

capricorn

Capricorns are disciplined and responsible, which makes you among the most reliable signs. In 2021, feel free to try something spontaneous! The best memories can be made from something unplanned, which might sound crazy to you. But if the opportunity to seize the moment presents itself, take it and you won’t regret it.

AQUARIUS

New Year’s Resolution

While you love helping others, you rarely express your own emotions. This year, try to open up a little by keeping a journal. Jotting down some thoughts from time to time could be cathartic for the feelings you tend to keep to yourself, and might be the first step in having an easier time relaying your emotions to others.

PISCES

New Year’s Resolution

The last New Year’s Resolution is for Pisces, They are among the most artistic signs. Is there an art project you’ve always dreamed of working on — maybe a painting, a short film, or an album? Make 2021 the year you make that dream a reality. You can tend to have your head in the clouds, but why not bring your fantasies to life through your art?

What do you think? Do you already have your resolutions all figured out for 2021?

2020 Has Been A Mess: Here Are The Best New Year’s Limpias According To Your Sign

Each culture has their own traditions to celebrate the start of the new year and growing up Latinx, we know that there’s nothing quite like a spiritual cleanse or ‘Limpia’ for those who want to revive their energy after being exposed to negative energy. So keep reading to find limpias and rituals curated for each Zodiac sign.

Let’s face it: this year has been an emotional and physical rollercoaster. It’s left so many of us completely dazed and confused and wondering what our future could look like.

Now, more than ever, we need to create a space for personal reflection and get in touch with our powerful inner witch. Plus, spending time, energy, and intention on your goals through ritual work adds a little bit of an extra sparkle to them that may just inspire you to follow through.

Aries

The first sign of the zodiac is competitive, courageous, with a ‘winner’ mindset. As a fire sign, Aries can be very emotionally charged —and as 2020 continues to throw some curve balls, we need a ritual with an opposing element like water, to help balance and flush out those high temps.

Here’s a simple ritual:

Fill a glass with purified water and find a place of solitude with no distractions (cell phone off).

Create an intention of what you learned in 2019 that you want to continue growing and learning in 2020.

Visualize that intention being poured into the glass of water. Visualize the element of water cleansing and purifying the negative thoughts.

After taking a moment of gratitude to connect and visualize your intention, release the intention back into the earth by pouring the water on the ground.

Taurus

Taurus are some of the most loyal elements of the zodiac. They are reliable, consistent and calm. You’ve probably had a less tumultuous year than most – either financially or work-wise. But keep those good, prosperous vibes going with this simple limpia:

Recite a personal prayer to connect you with your source (the higher power you believe most in)

Open windows or doors so that dense energies can flow out.

Light a dried lavender flower bundle like you would palo santo or sage and move the extinguished bundle around your space to cleanse away the negative energetic residue of 2020.

Gemini

Geminis are full of curiosity, and inquisitive knowledge. But it‘s this mindfulness and curiosity what causes that tendency towards indecision. Being indecisive probably led you down some interesting lessons this past year.

Recite a personal prayer to connect you with your source (the higher power you believe most in)

Open windows or doors so that dense energies can flow out.

In a fire-proof bowl or cauldron, light a piece of charcoal like you would sage or palo santo. Place fennel seeds on the smoking charcoal and pour a small amount of cedar oil on the fennel to increase the burn.

Fan the smoke around you and your space to cleanse away the negative energetic residue of 2020.

Close the ritual with a prayer of affirmation and love.

With the moon as your ruling planet, you are one of the most intuitive signs. You are loved for being attentive and nurturing and this can be draining your energy. Self-care should be an important topic for you going at all times but especially now thanks to everything going on in our world. Here’s a ritual for a spiritual baño to help you cleanse from negative vibes and ease into more chill ones.

Run warm water and fill tub to your liking.

Add sea salt and chamomile allowing the properties to expel in the water.

Place healong crystals of your choosing around the tub, or inside if they don’t have a negative reaction to water.

Light some candles to help you relax, and soak in the warm bath.

Visualize the chamomile and salts working their magic, releasing dense energy from your aura.

Enjoy for as long as you need and close with a prayer of gratitude.

Leo

You shine bright like the sun. Leo is one of the most charismatic signs of the Zodiac. You live passionately and are usually center stage or the life of the party. For so many, especially Leos, 2020 has been a powerful check against ego and self-identity. A year full of highs and lows helped both make you humble and proud of who you are. Here’s a spiritual bath to help soothe your inner fire.

Run warm water and fill tub to your liking.

Add a handful of dried lavender allowing the properties to expand in the water.

Add a tablespoon of Florida water to the bath —or as much as you feel guided to pour.

Soak in the warm water and envision yourself connecting with the lavender to help you soothe and cool down the overuse of fire within you. Ask for guidance toward a more balanced temperament.

Enjoy for as long as you need and close with a prayer of gratitude.

Virgo

This sign is known for it’s meticulous attention to detail and impeccable work. Your grounded nature allows you to be practical and get things done —which is something many other signs lack. 2020 is likely throwing you off of your stable nature which has left you feeling frazzled at times. Enjoy the following cleanse to assist you in cleaning yourself of dense negative energy and freeing new space to allow new opportunities into your life.

Make bundles of fresh rosemary (one for each room with a bed and another for a small altar)

Spray or sprinkle Florida water onto bundles.

Pray over the rosemary bundles and connect with the higher power you believe in, and ask for assistance in welcoming in fresh energy before the year ends.

Place a bundle under every bed in your place and another in an altar.

Keep the bundles in place until they’ve dried out completely.

Once they’ve dried out (2 weeks approximately) throw them away in a dumpster at least 2 miles away from your home.

The rosemary will clear out dense energy and will allow a clear mind for your analytical brain.

Libra

Balance is your safe haven. Structure and diplomacy are ideal for a Libra to thrive. Spending so much time with your head in the clouds requires some time for you to feel more grounded —and that’s exactly what this limpia will help you do.

Set a bowl full of water and salt in the middle of the room you wish to cleanse.

Light an ethically sourced bundle of sage and state a protection intention

Work the smoke from your sage, from the North corner of the room, to the east, south and western corners.

Direct the energy you’re clearing, into the bowl with salt. The saltwater will soak up all the energy you need to release –from anger, to confusion.

Once done with the sage, place it safely somewhere it can extinguish itself until the smoke goes out.

Center yourself in the middle of the room with a black crystal or tourmaline (make sure you sage the tourmaline too), and ask Mother Earth in gratitude, to help you feel more grounded as an air sign.

Scorpio

This year you were focused and you dedicated a lot of time to areas where you feel that you are in a position of power: work, relationships, etc. If you worked hard, you experience positive karma paying you back in return. You might have had some harsh realizations that triggered you emotionally though. So cut yourself some slack with this limpia to help you revive the energy of your space.

Place purified water in a pot to boil

Once boiling, add fresh basil.

Squeeze 2 fresh lemons into the boiling water.

Allow the water to cool down and place it in a spray bottle. This will be your purification water.

Spray it in rooms, use it to clean desks or mop your floors.

You can use it all year round.

Sagittarius

2020 has tested your ways of communication. The latest mercury retrograde might have affected some of your friendships or relationships. You learned how to express yourself but also how to not lash out. Here’s a fire limpia to help release any personal, professional or romantic blockages that have been created in 2020.

Pray over fennel seeds to seek for the release from any blockages created in the year.

Light a charcoal block until it sparks and place inside a cauldron or fire-proof pot.

Place copal carefully onto the charcoal and the fennel seeds on top while the charcoal is lit and heated. Pour some ‘road opener’ oil (find it at your local botanica or or spiritual shop) on it and let it smoke.

Perform a self limpia —use the smoke to wash over your head.

Scoop the smoke over your head and down every chakra point up to the soles of your feet.

Work the cauldron in circles over your arms and legs until the smoke goes out.

Remaining smoke can be used to cleanse your room.

You’re naturally driven and ambitious, but this year’s unprecedented drama and some recent retrogrades might have felt like you were being pulled backward which made you feel anxious. This ritual will help get rid of that left-over anxiety and return you to your usual tenacious self.

Connect with your higher power of love and protection.

Cleanse a smokey quartz stone

Meditate your intention over a dark brown candle. Cut the wick before lighting and pour patchouli oil over the candle for added protection and spiritual grounding.

Write your intention and goals for the rest of the year and propose them to planet Saturn for added discipline and assistance.

Light the candle and place the crystal on top of your paper of intention. Connect and meditate with the crystal for 5 minutes.

Keep the candle lit for the next 8 days or as long as it burns.

Aquarius

The innovative ones. Working through and shattering old patterns was a big behavior for Aquarius in 2019 – but then came 2020. Leave all the clutter of the mind and our world behind and make way for the greatness to come. This simple spiritual bath will help you come back to center and focus your mind.

Light a white candle

Pray over a bundle of eucalyptus and the candle, stating your purpose for the new year.

Place the white candle in the bathroom with you.

Run a warm bath with epsom salt (2 tb spoons) and place the eucalyptus around the showerhead so that the stream of wafter runs through the properties of the plant.

Drop some essential oil into the bath and soak for as long as you need. Pour the bath water over your head (chakra) and let it touch every part of your body.

Keep the bundle on your shower head until you no longer feel the properties of the plant in the water, then dispose of it 2 miles away from your home.

Pisces

The most emotional and sensitive sign of the Zodiac. You spend a lot of time dealing between what is real and what isn’t —with your innate ability to tap into other realms. Here’s a simple water cleanse —your natural habitat!— to help connect you with your intention and wishes for the new year.

Fill a glass with purified water and find a place of solitude with no distractions (cell phone off).

Create an intention of what this year has taught you – about who you are, what you value, what you yearn for – for the rest of 2020 and beyond.

Visualize that intention being poured into the glass of water. Visualize the element of water cleansing and purifying the negative thoughts.

After taking a moment of gratitude to connect and visualize your intention, release the intention back into the earth by pouring the water on the ground.
