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 passive—all rolled into one cat. This animal is a lesson in duality, giving you a full range of emotions and physical attributes. He’ll give you a nip asking you to pay attention, then she’ll turn around and lick the same spot. He/she, she/he, back and forth. You may think it’s typical feline behavior, but no, it’s 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 he’ll die without you. But he’s happily bonding with the sitter just in case you don’t come back, and if you don’t, he’ll cozy up to the real estate broker, too. It’s not that he’s fickle; just as the scorpion’s nature is to sting, Gemini’s is to be all things to all creatures. Just pretend you’re as special to him as he makes you feel.
The Gemini cat is a multifaceted, creative cat—poetry in motion. No doubt, he’ll create something, even if it’s havoc.
He’s 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 won’t want to sit still for long though, since he’s always in conflict. Just watch that tail swish to and fro. He’ll rarely finish anything, including dinner. Instead, he’ll be off making mischief somewhere.
Gemini is quick. A bird or mouse doesn’t have a chance. He’d like to eat it, but his twin likes to taunt and play with it first—hunger 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.
