For those of you with birthdays between May 21 and June 20 and consider yourself more of a celestial being than most, you probably know that your astrological sign is Gemini.
According to Greek and Roman mythology, the sign comes from twins Castor and Pollux (remember Face/Off?), who are together known as Dioscuri, which in Latin translates to Gemini.
According to Horoscope, the traits of someone born under the Gemini sign are intelligence, passion, optimism and vibrancy. They are also considered excellent communicators and known for being quick-witted. Geminis, however, can sometimes be two-faced and are known for not being very good listeners. In fact, some of their weaknesses, Vice says, make Geminis carry “the worst reputation among the astrologically-inclined.” With all that lying, cheating and stealing, where does one find the time to be loved?
“In some ways, this reputation is deserved,” Vice writes. “At some point, perhaps it will occur to those born under the twins’ sign that when you insist on talking nonstop…you come off like an arrogant jerk who’s more interested in showboating than connecting.”
There are plenty of Latine celebrity Geminis around Hollywood and beyond that most people are familiar with like actress Zoe Saldana, basketball star Carmelo Anthony, supermodel Adriana Lima and filmmaker Robert Rodriguez. So, here are a few lesser known Latine Geminis to familiarize yourself with as you skim across the constellations in the night sky in search for the meaning of life.
