True to her name, a Gemini woman is not typically known to be one-dimensional. Some call Geminis two-faced, a nod as much to the sign of the Twins as it is to their chameleon-like personalities.
But we know Geminis as mostly kind, nurturing and open-minded, and maybe even a little whimsical or spontaneous.
On the far end, they can be seen as cold and untrustworthy, and if you cross a Gemini woman you may quickly find yourself on the wrong end of her scorn. However, if you knew the big picture, you’d see that it isn’t quite so simple, even if she’s trying to move on.
As one of the most misunderstood signs in the zodiac (you can learn more about the Gemini sign here) Geminis are constantly struggling to balance their desire for spontaneity and serendipity in life. Such as those pesky things like obligations and responsibilities—you know, like work or home life responsibilities. Sometimes a project from the office or a task at home can be left unfinished because of a Gemini girl’s desire to mix it up, but know that it’s not personal. We all sometimes need a break, especially Gemini.
That’s not to say that Gemini women aren’t kind and loving. To the contrary, they’ll stay up all night with you over a pint of rocky road to help you burn mementos of a failed relationship. They’ll likely join in and shed some tears of their own during the emotional moments or yell or scream during the intense ones. Gemini women can be great friends through tough times, and, because she’s so open-minded, you never have to worry about being judged.
Positive Gemini Traits – Female
Gemini women are mostly known as outgoing and adventurous to their family and friends. They may not have to be the life of the party every night out, but they’ll try just about anything once. Even small adventures are likely to get a Gemini woman out of the house if there’s an assignment to write or chores to do.
But don’t mistake her zest for life as a crass sensibility, Geminis are highly intelligent and love to read, and you might even find one cozying up on a Saturday night with a literary classic if no one came up with a solid plan for the night.
Most nights, however, you’ll find Geminis being spontaneous and whimsical. They love to travel to new places and meet new people, and they seek out new experiences whenever they can. They’re also independent and open-minded, so new cultures and activities help to expand Gemini’s mind, as well as keep their interest. Geminis also have a never-ending thirst for knowledge, so education never really stops, even after a Gemini woman graduates.
In the right set of circumstances, Geminis can even act as a mirror, reflecting the feelings of others in an attempt to bridge an emotional gap. Some see it as being disingenuous or “fake,” but Gemini’s really trying here. She loves empathizing with others to the point where she’ll put herself emotionally in the shoes of her friends or family, and she may even express real anger or sadness as she gets caught up on the latest drama. But don’t think she’s trying to steal your thunder — Gemini’s just trying to support you the best she can.
Negative Gemini Traits – Female
To outsiders, a Gemini woman can be tough, unapproachable and unreliable. But it’s all part of her creative and adventurous ways.
In her pursuit of fun and new experiences, she may come across as impulsive and uncaring, especially if she decides to go out and you wanted a nice and quiet night in. Geminis can also be indecisive, especially in the beginning stages of a relationship or where to book that next Airbnb — can’t we stay in all these places!? — but that’s Gemini’s strong intellect reigning in her spontaneous tendencies.
If a Gemini woman gets an idea in her head, lookout. She may break plans, come off as cold or harsh or even emotionally distant, but that’s more a measure of her focus than her real feelings. Sometimes you’ve got to shut the world out to finish that nagging project or plan a quick getaway with the gals, or maybe she just needed some me time. Don’t rush to judge. Let her take care of whatever it is, and things will be back to normal before you know it.
Because of their intelligence and their outgoing attitude, Gemini women are sometimes seen as manipulative, disruptive and even inciting drama or friction within groups. However, this is usually the result of misunderstanding the Gemini female’s mindset.
If you’ve just had an argument and it seems that she’s already moved on because she’s on the dance floor and you’re pouting in the booth, know that she’s likely trying to take her mind off the conflict by getting some space, and why not have some fun in the meantime.
About the Gemini Woman
While most signs have dominant and recessive traits, the Gemini female personality can be confusing if you take it at face value. One moment, they can be distant, and the next, your best friend. But that’s only because they’re living one moment to the next. Let her have her fun, and the next time you need some support she’ll be there with all her enthusiastic energy and vibrancy, just don’t ask her to help clear out your closet or help you move — she might find something more exciting and leave the packing to you. She’ll be better at planning your next trip or night out anyway, so play to her strengths.
