May 21st - June 21st
Gemini is associated with publishing, so it is no surprise Naomi has graced the covers of more than 500 international magazines, the place she made her start. As one of the original supermodels, she broke new ground as the first black woman to appear on the cover of Time, as well as in French, British, and Russian Vogue. Naomi Campbell now has moved into entrepreneurial enterprises (Gemini rules commerce) and also does a great deal of charity work.
Your Power Color:
Yellow! We speak of someone having a sunny disposition, and in our mind’s eye, we think of yellow. Yellow fits the mood of Gemini, the sign called the ever enthusiastic, upbeat, clever and curious one. Yellow is the color of pure radiant and sparkling sunlight that increases in strength as we reach the vernal equinox, Gemini’s season of birth. Yellow is the color of the rays that touch the crisp white sheets of your bed as you awaken, and as such, forms a metaphor for the conscious mind emerging from a sound sleep. It is also the color of the fruits we typically reach for first in the day to sharpen our mental acuity—fresh orange, grapefruit, blood orange, pineapple and tangerine.
We use yellow legal pads and bright yellow just-sharpened pencils to create our plans and sketch the future. While being “yellow” can mean we are afraid, a blinking yellow light warns us to think first before acting. A New York City taxicab, in bright canary yellow, seems to shout, go-go-go. Yellow seems so right for Gemini, for due to the sign’s rulership by Mercury, it is the sign in charge of transportation.
It is the color of a field of welcoming, wild buttercups and forsythia brightening the edges of the old dirt road that we see by our grandmother’s house over summer vacation. Yellow is the color of just-picked, thorny roses or fragrant freesia that we put in our vase on our nightstand, scenting the warm summer air lightly, the time of Gemini’s birth. It is the color of the fresh corn on the cob we pick in the garden and the butter we use to ooze over it. The desserts we crave like lemon meringue pie, lemon tarts or lemon ices all seem to be yellow, the color of summer. Yet yellow is also the hue of mental quickness, of sharp ideas and wit, which perfectly sums up Gemini, the sign of high IQ.
Heels or Flats:
This year you’ll be at your desk writing long manuscripts, for your talents in communication will be prized and rewarded financially. Everyone, it seems, will want to have your attention. As any writer knows, comfort reigns supreme when working. Later, when good fortune Jupiter enters your fourth house of home, you will have a golden opportunity to turn your living space into your castle. Again, you’ll need ballet flats throughout the rest of 2015—you’ll be covering a lot of ground as you make your selections.
What to Flaunt:
Your beautiful clavicle bones, the curve of your shoulder, well-toned arms, delicate fingers, or pretty wrists, all ruled by Gemini.
Your Personal Style:
Being ruled by Mercury, considered the smart and versatile planet, gives you, dear Gemini, a fashion editor’s eye. You rarely wear the same outfit two times in a row. This may be one reason why Gemini is so strongly associated with a brilliant approach to accessories. When it comes to styling, you are a master. Handbags, shoes, scarves, gloves, and belts—you love them all. You favor costume jewelry over fine jewelry, and are often known for your statement necklaces.
As a Gemini you are familiar with all the hot clubs and you tend to go out a lot, so you needs a lot of wardrobe options that can do double-duty. Gemini is also the quintessential sign of the traveler, so you need clothes that will allow you to effortlessly pack and go—knits fill the bill, from Missoni or Cavalli. For evening, as a Gemini, you tend to prefer sleek and sophisticated separates, just off the runway, such as a black satin bra paired with long-to-the-floor, slim satin skirt, bearing your midriff. (Gemini moves and fidgets often, the reason your sign is usually quite slim.)
Mercury, the clever, jovial trickster planet ruling Gemini, “messenger of the gods,” is responsible for this sign’s ability to think on its feet.
Gemini, the sign known to need plenty of variety, is the sign most talented at choosing original and uniquely chic accessories. The Twin has a pressing psychological need to look current. Your sign is the zodiac’s “work in progress,” ever changing like a forever-moving kaleidoscope. When asked what they dread more: to be called “out of fashion” or too trendy, Gemini will always err on the side of being the latter rather than be labeled too dowdy (a situation too horrible for the Twin to imagine).
A twin sign, when you shop, Gemini buys two of everything—T-shirts, pairs of shoes, sunglasses, whatever--one for herself and one for their lost twin. You are also the sign of travel—and Gemini wants the freedom that wheels can give her. If that’s not possible, a steady supply of plane tickets will do. Because she travel so frequently, Gemini likes knits and sportswear separates that will create plenty of possibilities through time changes and climate conditions.
Gemini’s most charming quality is her ability to be an ever-changing kaleidoscope of surprise, change and stimulation—you are a one-of-a-kind joy to your lover, friends and family forever.
