As the sign of the twins a Gemini is famous for their double nature.  They can be charming, kind and warm to one person, then turn around and be cold and cruel to another.   Also, Gemini is linked with the planet Mercury which is recognized for it’s youth.  This gives the Gemini a sort of eternal childishness that they will always have,

Because of this childish nature Gemini are extremely happy when things are going their way, and extremely dissatisfied when they are not.  As a result, a Gemini will constantly move from place to place taking advantage of the ’newness’ of a situation, giving them a chance to shine, but when things get bogged down they are often the first to leave.

Most Gemini have a keen, intuitive, sometimes brilliant intelligence and they love cerebral challenges. But their concentration, though intense for a while, does not last. Their mental agility and energy give them a voracious appetite for knowledge from youth onward, though they dislike the labor of learning. They easily grasp almost everything requiring intelligence and mental dexterity, and are often able to marry manual skills to their qualities of mind.

Their intellect is strongly analytical and sometimes gives them so great an ability to see both sides of a question that they vacillate and find it hard to make decisions. But their intelligence may very well be used to control and unify the duality of their natures into a most efficient unit. If faced with difficulties, they have little determination to worry at a problem until they find a solution - they will pick the brains of others. In their intellectual pursuits, as in other departments of their lives, they risk becoming dilettantes, losing themselves in too many projects which they follow until they become difficult.

Gemini tend not to make the greatest romantic partners either.  They love the hunt and once they have captured the heart of their prey they will lose interest and move on to other things.  This is not absolute though.  But if you do find yourself in a relationship with a Gemini you may notice that they hate sentimentality and will often mock people who embrace it. In less serious situations they make witty, entertaining companions, good acquaintances rather than friends. Even at their worst they are never dull - there is usually playfulness below the surface, and they can be brilliant conversationalists - but they can also be quarrelsome, prattlers, boasters, liars and cheats.
