In this blog series, you'll learn about the 12 western signs and receive an exclusive look at the 12 Zodiac Keepers featured in C. M. Ramsburg's YA Fantasy, SON OF THE SUN.
“I find power in laughter.”
Gemini is the most communicative and expressive sign in the Zodiac. They are wordsmiths that feel comfortable in all social settings. Geminis are known to be witty, affectionate, charming, curious, and adaptable. Meanwhile, their ability to rapidly exchange ideas and learn at a fast pace can often make them indecisive and inconsistent. Their curiosity makes them open-minded and restless. Those born of this Sun Sign are often accused of having two dueling personalities, one that is fun and carefree while the other is thoughtful and serious. This yinyang nature can make Geminis complex and hard to read.
What to Know about Gemini
Gemini is an Air Sign, along with Libra and Aquarius. Air is a masculine element that combines the Zodiac qualities of hot and wet. The airy nature of Gemini encourages them to be adaptable and free. This airy spirit makes a Gemini feel liberated as they forever wander with childlike curiosity. Geminis are flirty by nature and are always searching for the next exciting event. The totem of Gemini is the Twins, the name "Gemini" directly translating to "the twins" in Latin. The Gemini constellation tells the story of Castor and Pollux, who have been called the patron saints of sailors. However, some interpret the Gemini constellation to depict Heracles and Apollo, the half-brothers of Zeus. Alpha and Beta Geminorum are the brightest stars of the Gemini constellation, representing the twins' heads.
Gemini's ruling planet is Mercury, which operates as a bridge between the heavenly gods and our earthly existence. Mercury rules our self-expression and communication abilities, allowing Gemini to excel in these aspects. The brotherly love found within Gemini is supported by the mutual understanding and self-awareness between the two brothers. Mercury encourages duplicity, further strengthening the duality that already manifests within Gemini.
Timothy and Jack Thompson, Keepers of Gemini
“Despite our dueling personalities, I trust my brother with my life. Wait no, our life.”
Timothy and Jack Thompson are the 21-year-old identical twin brothers and Keepers of Gemini in my YA Fantasy, SON OF THE SUN. They are tall and lanky with gray eyes and sandy-blond hair. Timothy Thompson, or Tim Tom, is the witty comedic relief who has a charm that can kill. On the other hand, Jack is the serious and responsible brother that keeps Tim in check. Their contrasting personalities balance each other out in perfect harmony as the yin and yang of the Zodiac. Despite their differences, these lovable brothers share everything, including a body.
