What does Gemini symbolize?
In Western astrology, there are twelve different zodiac signs. Each embodies different characteristics and personality traits. Gemini is the third zodiac sign on the wheel and ties to the dates May 21 until June 20. Geminis are the first Air sign on the wheel and have the quality of being a Mutable sign. As an Air sign, they are highly intellectual individuals who are especially talented in regards to communication, connection, and planning. They tend to intellectualize their emotions and crave constant interaction to express their perspectives and learn more about the world. Geminis are one of the most curious zodiac signs of all and tend to crave constant stimulation to keep their minds and interests peaked. They also are on the axis of communication and travel, as the polarity of Sagittarius. Geminis tend to focus on their immediate vicinity, which often includes their friends, neighbors, siblings, and people they interact with on a consistent basis. As they rule the natural third house in astrology, Geminis oversee multiple themes: writing, speaking, advertising, marketing, social media, contracts, academics (particularly the learning of common or new skills), as well as short-distance travel. In travel, Gemini rules vacations or movement that can be done within a closer vicinity as opposed to Sagittarius, which rules long-distance travel. Gemini is symbolized by the Twins, which represents their inherent duality. This also has brought Gemini a rather unique reputation, as they tend to have a more social, extroverted side that they enact, but disguise a more hidden, introverted, or even more selfish side to themselves. Geminis are not “bad”—but they have received some bad press because of their charm and ability to persuade others of nearly anything. This is all because of their planetary ruler—Mercury. Mercury gives them a mastery of the mind and communication, but can also be a trickster, often symbolized by the Mercury retrograde transit that takes place several times every year.
What is a birthstone?
A birthstone is a gemstone that is often tied to an individual’s month of birth or zodiac sign. Each zodiac sign has their own main birthstone, but some lesser-known or less common ones may overlap, especially for zodiac signs that carry similar characteristics. Some form of the use of gemstones has been in use and practiced for thousands of years. Gemstones are noted to carry particular significance due to their colors and meanings. From an esoteric and spiritual perspective, gemstones are believed to vibrate at certain frequencies and attract certain kinds of energies and experiences to the wearer. Some people also believe that gemstones can empower certain personality traits. In ancient times, birthstones could be found in the adornment and wardrobe of the elite classes, warriors, and spiritual gurus. In the modern day, gemstones have been standardized, particularly because of their use in luxuries and jewelry, but not from a spiritual perspective.
How can you use a birthstone?
The most common use of a birthstone is to have it worn as jewelry. These can take the form of rings, earrings, necklaces, and beyond. Some people even choose to buy their birthstone and display it in their interior design, décor, or on a sacred altar. On an esoteric and spiritual level, one can use birthstones to align their chakras and energy with that particular vibration.
What are Gemini birthstones? Do May and June Geminis have different birthstones?
First off, Geminis have many different birthstones. The ones that we will highlight because they are the most important and most common are Agate, Pearl, Citrine, Moonstone, and Tiger’s Eye. Regardless of when someone was born in Gemini season—whether that’s May or June—all Geminis share these same birthstones.
Some lesser known Gemini birthstones follow: Alexandrite, Amethyst, Apophyllite, Arfvedsonite, Aquamarine, Blue Sapphire, Celestite, Chrysocolla, Emerald, Serpentine, Tanzanite, Thulite, Tourmaline, Ulexite, and Variscite. We will not be addressing these in detail because they are used more rarely and crossover with many other zodiac signs.
As the most popular main birthstone of Gemini, Agate is a beautiful gemstone jewel. It can be found in many different colors. Agate has the power to release negative energy and calm one’s tension and nerves. Because Geminis tend to always be on the move and juggling many different hats, Agate can help them to focus and maintain their sanctity throughout all affairs. Agate also empowers one’s inner strength while also providing a grounding force to avoid burnout. Also, because Geminis are high communicators, this stone can help their throat chakra to open up peacefully and aid them in connecting with others while pursuing the highest good.
The next most popular birthstone for a Gemini is certainly the Pearl! Pearls are stunningly beautiful and born on the bottom of the ocean. This precious stone helps one to recognize the full spectrum of life and appreciate it—from the challenges to the victories, from the positives to the negatives, from the joy to the sorrow. Because Gemini is the zodiac sign of duality, this birthstone can help them to find peace, balance, and a sense of security through it all.
Next up, a fan-favorite Gemini birthstone is the lovely Citrine! This gemstone has radiant, solar vibes, almost like the sun! In ancient times, Citrine was affectionately referred to as a light-bringing stone! On an esoteric level, Citrine is believed to help one unleash their inner light like a supernova, never hiding it away. In essence, one must vibrate on their highest level to live the life of their dreams. It can also help someone who has been navigating murky, darker emotions and vibes and dispel them to bring about joy, happiness, and serenity.
Another popular gemstone for a Gemini would be Moonstone. This gorgeous stone brings about stability in the emotions, empowers one’s sensitivity and psychic ability, and aids one in being decisive when pursuing one’s goals and heart’s desires. Geminis can sometimes be a bit indecisive, especially when faced with many options or paths before them, so a Moonstone will help them to dig deep into their spirit and then proceed confidently forward.
Last to mention of the many popular Gemini birthstones is the Tiger’s Eye. This beloved precious stone brings great protection, much like a tiger will protect its territory and loved ones. In life, we are constantly faced with challenging experiences or people, often radiating their toxic negativity onto others. Geminis can pick up this energy and feel it seep into their more negative, shadowy sides, which feeds drama and ultimately betrayal. Geminis can be the most gossip-heavy zodiac sign, stirring the pot just to see people squirm. However, this is not often because Geminis are bad people, but they are taking on the negative frequencies of others around them. Tiger’s Eye can help avert all of that by providing a protective cloak to dark energy and bringing a great degree of grounded balance.
