I'm Gemini: the twins. I was born on the 26th of May, so I fall under this sign. I've never really ascribed any importance to zodiac signs. I knew mine was Gemini and that was about it. I didn't know what it meant or didn't mean. So to do this challenge, I had to research my zodiac sign and it turned up some pretty interesting things.

Apparently, on the positive side, Geminis are adaptable, versatile, communicative, witty, intellectual, eloquent, youthful and lively and on the negative side, we are nervous, tense, superficial, inconsistent, cunning and inquisitive. A Gemini is dual-natured and as such is elusive, complex and contradictory. Gemini's are easily bored and they need new interests regularly and when things don't go their way, they resort to cunning. They love cerebral challenges because they are intuitive and brilliant. they have a voracious appetite for knowledge which is contradicted by their short attention span. In love, they are hostile to sentimentality. They are dispassionate, logical, rational and analytical which makes them good lawyers and scientists to name a few potential Gemini careers but this also means they can thrive as tricksters.

So do I agree with all these? To a large extent. I would say that I'm most of those things, versatile, lively etc plus, dig this, I'm a lawyer! What are the odds? Moving on. I'm also very neurotic and a worry-wart so yeah I agree to nervous and tense. I've been known to tell a few fibs but who hasn't? But generally, using cunning to get my way is not really my thing. I'm superficial to the extent that I like good things and like to be well turned out but being superficial as a way of life, not really. What I found fascinating was the being 'hostile to sentimentality' that was funny. I do hate a lot of mush. I think there should be a healthy balance. Don't do overly mushy at all. I am logical, dispassionate et al. It drives my mother mad. She thinks I'm too 'oyinbo' for the Nigerian setting. I blame all of that on my dad.

I think there are reasons we are the way we are. We are a product of our environment and our upbringing. We all have good and bad sides (at least, that's what I believe and that's what has been my experience).
I was raised by a father who didn't see gender and raised me as he would a boy. So I'm very logical about things. I have siblings who are younger than me so naturally, I worry about them.Everything can be explained away by events in and circumstances surrounding my life. I'm the way I am because I have lived and life has shaped me to be this person not because 'my sun is aligned with mercury'. I don't believe in the zodiac sign hokum but that could just be the dispassionate, logical, rational and analytic gemini in me speaking. Lol.
