GEMINI is governed by the planet Mercury. The nervous system, as well as the respiratory system, glands, fibers and tissues, shoulders, paws, and toes are all governed by this sign. An elementary quality of wet heat is associated with Gemini.
Gemini is male and female, extrovert and introvert, aggressive and passiveóall rolled into one cat. This animal is a lesson in duality, giving you a full range of emotions and physical attributes. Heíll give you a nip asking you to pay attention, then sheíll turn around and lick the same spot. He/she, she/he, back and forth. You may think itís typical feline behavior, but no, itís just Gemini.
A Gemini will never be your very own lap cat; this one belongs to the world. When you leave Gemini with the house sitter, you may fret that heíll die without you. But heís happily bonding with the sitter just in case you donít come back, and if you donít, heíll cozy up to the real estate broker, too. Itís not that heís fickle; just as the scorpionís nature is to sting, Geminiís is to be all things to all creatures. Just pretend youíre as special to him as he makes you feel.
The Gemini cat is a multifaceted, creative catópoetry in motion. No doubt, heíll create something, even if itís havoc.
Heís ruled by Mercury, the winged-footed Greek god, so prepare to fly with him as if he were a catbird. However, he can slip through your fingers like quicksilver. Gemini is an air sign and air must circulate freely, so he will want the run of the house.
Gemini wonít want to sit still for long though, since heís always in conflict. Just watch that tail swish to and fro. Heíll rarely finish anything, including dinner. Instead, heíll be off making mischief somewhere.
Gemini is quick. A bird or mouse doesnít have a chance. Heíd like to eat it, but his twin likes to taunt and play with it firstóhunger and patience at odds. Could we call him fidgety? No, everyone else is slow. Just let him be, as he changes so fast all his little quirks are here and gone in an instant. His mind sifts through so much so fast that not even the most avid nonverbal communication expert can get it all.
