Became inspired by a friend to join SP in Feb. 2010, and haven't looked back. I have good days and bad, but I'm thrilled with the changes thus far. To actually be able to look in a mirror with less layers of clothing on and think "Wow, I'm doing great"...as opposed to avoiding mirrors altogether...it's a wonderful thing.

And to have hubby say in an appreciative tone "you're getting thinner"...greatest feeling in the world!

The Gemini child is born to a father who is well respected in the community and she is often the "baby" in the family. She grows up fast as she is allowed to keep up with the bigger kids so she talks early and she continues to love to talk. She often has two of everything, and later in life can have two marriages. She loves variety and can change easily. She should never marry young, but take time to explore the world and learn about herself. She can have problems with her "nerves" and depression can be an issue for her. She thinks to much. (Marilyn Monroe was a Gemini woman. Her best friend said "No one knows the real Marilyn.) Gemini can be very different behind closed doors. She gets along with Libra, Aquarius, Aries, Leo, Sagittarius and Virgo. She should avoid controlling Scorpio who keeps secrets. She must have a person who is open & honest as she tells all. She loves to play games. She makes a good writer, reporter, or front-person as she loves to talk. She isn't meant to be obese, as she has to much energy, so she needs to have an outlet for exercise.

In Gemini the Sun is active, restless and changeable. You like plenty of variety in your everyday activities, in your friends, and even in your diet. Your interests are many and diverse--almost anything will attract your attention if only for a brief time. Truly, this is the sign of the jack-of-all-trades. As the story goes, you may find that unless you can develop your powers of perseverance, you may be the master of none. Your varied interests can result in a tendency for you to spread yourself too thin, sometimes failing to follow through on projects you've begun.
Being very curious, you want to know and experience as much as you can. Gemini is the sign of duality. You find it difficult to limit yourself to one job, to one relationship, or one hobby, as you constantly seek variety and mental adventure. You scatter your energies because you don't want to miss anything. You are a lifelong student, never tiring of learning new subjects. You collect facts and tidbits of data, but you may not always have the big picture.
To the Gemini person, communication is of utmost importance. You flourish on ideas, with a mind that is ever so quick and curious. You are a person who enjoys talking and writing. All sorts of communication ideas appeal to nature. You are aware of all that is going on around you, and you want to understand and participate in it all. You are hard to pin down, and even harder to beat in a debate. Your abilities of combining quick comprehension , and the communication of this comprehension to others, are the hallmarks of your sign. You can talk yourself into and out of situations with ease. Often Mercury people (Gemini's ruling planet is Mercury) take mischievous delight in disconcerting slower minds with their fast paced mental antics. You like to be around people, and you never do well working alone or on any routine type job.
Extremely friendly, you enjoy companionship, and really thrive on it. Just as you don't like to be without activity, you don't like to be alone. You are likely to have a very wide circle of friends with whom you enjoy many activities--movies, games, conversation, and such. You are naturally outgoing and possess a sparkling wit. You are apt to become quickly bored with conservative types that can't make a decision or agree with your need to impose change. Not being very introspective or reflective, often you don't understand your motivations or the motivations of others. So in many ways, relationships can be shallow and superficial. Your restless mercurial nature requires constant excitement and change, or you'll becomes very dispirited and morose.
