Understanding the dark side of Gemini will need you understanding that there are two sides of Gemini. Everyone has two sides, but they do not mix, people are one or the other at different times. Gemini one is dominating of their persona as they are a sign of duality – the twins. They are opposite forces: anger vs happiness, black vs white, evil vs kindness, ignorance vs understanding. Gemini shows how contradiction can coexist and depend on each other. This is why Gemini is not easily understood by others as they are capable of being multiple contradictory forces at once. Their mind is complex & wide, something the simple mind can not grasp.
One of Gemini’s dark side that is rarely spoken on is their anti-social behaviour. Usually described as sociable and funny, they have bouts of moodiness & reclusive behaviour. They can be introverted as much as they can extroverted (duality), their moods however are very inconsistent hence their capabilities of being friendly & there one moment. Next moment giving you the cold shoulder & ignoring your entire existent or treating you like trash. Occasionally they need a break from the outside world & basic chatter, to self reflect & scold themselves.
However with scolding themselves & self reflection, they also scold the world and reflect on them too. Duality right 🙄 Can’t have one without the other. Geminis are extremes of which ever side of the spectrum they’re on, this is why their moods can be OTT. When reflecting on the world, it’s not something basic, it’s heavy & deep, usually really negative or really positive. But when negative, their reclusive behaviour gets worse. They can become unresponsive, irrational and hard to reason with. Hard to communicate and get in touch with, skeptical and cynical, just completely isolating themselves from everyone especially if it’s a person they are reflecting on. That person will receive the coldest shoulder possible.
Gemini’s are the communicators. Even the anti-social ones. Communication comes in many positive forms, like being comedic, advisors, therapists etc. But it also can come in dark forms: like being good at playing games, trickery, sly, slick etc. Gemini’s are capable of both. Duality 😤. Their ruling planet Mercury, known as the messenger of the Gods, is associated with communication & expression but also, thieving, lying, opportunism, indecisiveness & nit picking. It enables them to be able to work their charm, use their skills and get what they want out of a situation even if it is only to benefit them. Gemini is not above getting down & dirty to get what they want from someone, even if it means hurting them & taking away what isn’t there’s, unlike other signs like Sagittarius, Pisces etc, they don’t have a strong moral compass. It can leave people feeling hurt, used, lied to, left high & dry and confused. Because Gemini can talk the talk, allowing someone to feel something even though in their heads it is a completely different thing but yet exactly what they are telling you. Duality 🤢.
Gemini does not fall deeply into most things because they are a curious sign. This allows them to only reach the surface of most communications & even romantic/friendly relationships. They are constantly on the go to learn more & find out new things. This is why they are good conversationalists, they are capable of picking up a little bit from each conversation they have allowing them to know a little about each topic they engage in. Allowing them to know lots of people rather than limiting themselves to a small tight nit group. The dark side is that you are not getting to know the real them or their real interests unless they want you to. They are capable of being what you want them to be in order to form a bond/connection w you through their knowledge of topics they have picked up in the past through conversation. It can come across as fake. This highlights how their friendships can form over mutual interest or disinterest. A Gemini is capable of making friends with an enemies, enemy through that common interest. Gemini are masters of playing games & dislike feeling wronged, when a Gemini convinces themselves that they have been mistreated, a Gemini (who was once a friend) can turn into an enemy that will hang on & hold onto their hatred of you. They can be very petty in the way they handle their hatred and try make your life a misery, which is only hurting them because usually the other person has moved on with their lives & over the situation. They hold onto dislike even though their anger has long gone.
Linking to their romantic dark side. Gemini struggle with their emotions & being tied to people emotionally as well as being emotionally intense. They lack that type of passion. For them, romance & life is about freedom of expression & emotion. They dislike being tied down & restricted. They’re happiest in a relationship they can be free to flirt, friendly, speak to others. The male Gemini’s especially are happy in situations where they can be in open relationships as Gemini’s are capable of loving more than one person at once. Something others don’t understand. Gemini are intense in their love through wanting to make their partner happy, comfortable & set. So long as they let them run free while being totally faithful and submissive to them. It can be very contradictory as well as selfish. They will sweet talk, charm, love their way into your life then spoil you like crazy, while at the same time possibly doing the same with someone else. This does not mean they love you less and love them more. They’re capable of loving you both equally. Duality 🤷🏾♀️
Once Gemini realises they can not have the type of relationship they want from you, they will lie to get it. If that is then impossible, they will leave you for someone who can give it to them. But don’t you dare think about moving on, Gemini can be selfish in the sense of doing whatever makes them happy even though it can be at your expense. But will not want you to make you happy, even though it’s a result of what they did to you. They become verbally abusive, cold, angry, sometimes physically abusive, immature. Basically big babies.
Gemini need to work on building stronger connections and relationships with people rather than seeing them as conquests to quench their curiosity. They need to wrap their minds around the fact that not everyone is an unemotional as they can be. Emotions are strong feelings people possess and deserve to be protected rather than seen as things that aren’t that deep. Once they learn to understand and empathise with people on a deeper level. Gemini’s can begin to see the world the way others see it too & form better friendships, communications & relationships with people.
