I am Gemini

Hear me Roar...  Haha, okay just kidding it is probably the Leo who roars.
This is mostly for my partner in the #zodiacminiswap being held on Instagram.
But if you would like to learn a little bit more about me, then please read on.

It was hard to make a mosaic board about your star sign, mostly I came up with quotes when I wrote Gemini Zodiac on google, I have placed my favorite quotes on my Pinterest board, I am Gemini!
There are only a handful of pictures that I have found, other than the traditional Gemini sign.
I really liked this one, cause it represents both my Zodiac sign and also my Chinese Horoscope, Year of the Dragon.
Source and Designer can be found here.
I guess some people don't like signs and horoscopes and stuff, but I do, okay I don't go out and read my daily horoscope, but I really just love reading about different people and also to see if there is any truth to what is written about me, I have a ton of books, these are the only ones I could find quickly.
 The top two are written by Robert Lee Camp and are more specific, like they go by the day you were born, I have a friend who does Yearly Reports based off of this specific horoscope reading and it is really dead one, example below of just what is in the book.

Let's have fun and do a little Greek History of the twins or διδυμος (in Greek, Gemini/Διδυμοι) .  The ancient Greeks told of the seduction of Leda by Zues (that darn Zues seducing all of the women) who transformed himself into a swap (okay I had to leave that there after I proofread, cause that is where my head always is in swaps, haha, but it is supposed to read SWAN) for the purpose: Leda laid two eggs, one containing here children by her mortal husband, Castor and Clytemnestra, and the other her immortal offspring, Pollux and Helen.  When Castor was killed, Pollux mourned his brother's death so deeply that Zeus raised his dead twin to immortality.  Well that's that story, hehe, let's have mine:

The Gemini-born are highly intellectual, love change, and love to talk.
Well I don't know if I would say I am highly intellectual, but if it is something I am interested in, you only have to tell me how to do it once, and I can memorize it.  But on the other hand if I am not interested in what ever intellectual thing is going on it will just go in one ear and out the other.  Same thing with loving to talk, I can talk to complete strangers very easily IF I find them interesting, but if I have nothing to say then I don't talk, because I feel when I talk it should be to say something important, not just to hear myself speak.  LOVE CHANGE, YES, that one is right on!  I could paint a room a dozen times over, go on vacation to a different spot every time, etc.  I didn't realize how different this was until I married my husband and well he does not like change, if I move the couch he freaks out... So yeah not much change happening here lately.

People born under the sign of Gemini love to converse. They spend a lot of time on the phone, sending emails, and chatting with people they may or may not know personally. They love to ask questions because they have an unquenchable thirst for knowledge. They are likely to gain information from a wide variety of sources. An encyclopedia is just as good as a co-worker who is recounting gossip from a recent tabloid.
Like I said above not so much, I can talk if I find the conversation stimulating, or I am talking with a best buddy.  But I can also sit quietly in the corner.  I get most of my knowledge from the internet nowadays, if I want to learn something I type it into the computer.  I don't find Greeks very intelligent at least not the ones I am around so not very many conversations with them.

Gemini loves change and variety. A Gem will become bored and restless if stuck in the same place or situation for too long. Gems love freedom and traveling to different countries. They find true joy in the journey. They also love working on multiple tasks, usually leaving them all unfinished. They lack the focus to complete one assignment. Instead, they spread their energy out over as much as they can. People born under the Twins actually love to have more than one of everything in their lives, not just jobs. This includes careers and lovers. After all, "twin" means "two".
Ummm.. yeah, the above is all me, as you can see I am an American living in Greece and totally dig the idea of moving to Australia with my husband and kids whenever he brings it up (cause the economic situation here is not good) but it is my husband who is always like, "oh you can't do that, you won't be able to live in Australia", ha, see how well he knows me, I always argue, Hey I'm livin' in Greece.  But it is really HIM who doesn't want to move.
This is from the book I mentioned above, this is my Planetary Ruling Card.

The second sentence Yes, just take a look at my kitchen table right now as I am writing this, I have 4 sewing projects I am working on right now and that doesn't include the 3 over on my ironing board in the corner or the ones that are down in my dungeon  I mean craft room.
one end of the table has space for a computer or for my sewing machine :)
This is why I enjoy joining challenges, cause it gives me a deadline to complete something, Swaps also are awesome cause they do the same thing, you need to finish it by a certain date and it needs to be a mini or a pouch or whatever, but there are specifics, which is really good for me. I have been meaning to make my Mom a purse since last June, and all I have done is picked the pattern and ironed the fabric, but since no one is around to say hey did you finish that purse for you mom, well it isn't getting done, I even set my own dates, like first it was for Thanksgiving then for Christmas now for Mother's day (probably going to miss that one) so then it will be back to being a birthday gift for her in June (gosh I hope I can get it done this year!)
The last sentence, two of everything, yeah me again, first I just love to collect stuff, we have 3 cars, 1 vespa and I am hoping we can get another one this year ;) I used to always have 2 jobs, or if I couldn't do 2 jobs I would volunteer somewhere for my time off, always staying busy.  I took College classes after getting my bachelors degree just because I could and I liked learning.  In college I always had more than one boyfriend, my roommate kept track of the dates for me :)

The Twins are adaptable and versatile, which comes in handy since they have that love of change. They love to be around many different kinds of people. Often the Gemini-born are drawn to the arts, such as theatre or creative writing. Many famous writers and performers were born under Gemini, such as William Butler Yeats, Marilyn Monroe, Jean-Paul Sartre, and Johnny Depp.
My art for the moment is sewing, but that is not to say that it will not change in the future.  As you can see from my poor neglected blog I don't write much and it's not because I don't have anything to write it's because I really wish they would invent that computer chip that they put inside of your head and you could say "Computer on, write blog post, blah, blah, blah......" and it would write it out for you.  I have a ton of things to say when I am doing the dishes or making beds, but getting the time to write on a computer, with my 2 crazy kids screaming in the background (well let's just say right now I have a huge headache and the only thing that is keeping me sane is drinking my coke and eating some nuts)

Gems are lively and energetic, with a witty sense of humor. They are usually trendy, loving to take part in the latest fad. Trends offer them endless change, and a Gem is usually bored with one fad by the time the next rolls along.
My humor is very sarcastic, so I don't use it much, my husband isn't fast enough to catch on to it, and I have no desire to explain what I am saying.  And fashion not really for me.. I like to be comfortable and with huge boobs I just dress in a t-shirt and jeans.  And trends or fads, I just don't have the time or energy to want to follow them, I create my own trends (haha).

Though highly intellectual, Gems aren’t known for their deep understanding of anything. Instead, a Gem usually gets to know a little about something and then becomes bored. They grasp the initial information about a subject quickly, and then move on. They become frustrated if those around them do not absorb information as fast as they do because that means they must spend longer on one subject than they would prefer.
Yeah pretty much says it all.  I know a little about a lot of stuff, but I am definitely not an expert on any one topic.  But if I find a subject interesting I will learn as much as I can before I do move on to the next interest.

Though Gems are usually seen as upbeat, they do have an "evil-twin". Though only revealed to those closest to them, Gems can be moody and discouraged. They often become sarcastic when upset.
My husband can attest to this ;)

My birth card in the book mentioned above is the Queen of Diamonds, and this is pretty true about me also.

Have you seen my Sunday Stash posts, hahaha, yeah I have a spending problem and love showering gifts on my friends.  Good thing I married a man who is tight with the billfold.

Well I hope that kind of helps, or maybe not, jeez who knows, I am still deciding on what to make my partner.  Just go with her favorite colors, and add her sign, or.... I really have no idea. good thing we have some time to think and create.
P.S. I love Books, but don't buy any since the shipping cost is CRAZY, when we go to the States I always pack one suitcase with my old books and stop in a shop that does exchanges, this is mostly for my murder suspense and romance books.  All hardcover books I keep, but they have been moved to the dark outer corners of the basement to make room for my growing fabric collection on my bookcase.
I like all colors, my favorite changes daily recently I have been loving a raspberry pink color, but seriously it changes daily my hobby room is going to be mostly blues and sea themed.
It is impossible to find any sewing related items in my town, I have exhausted the local supply of colorful zippers and plastic buttons cost .60cents each (yeah crazy right, I picked out 10 the last time I was in the shop to make some cute pins and when she told me 6euros I flipped out)  I found 2 bead shops last time I was in our closest large town and my husband has promised we will go one day when the kids are in school (they were running like hooligans along the busy street)
Hey look how much I talked today!


  1. Thank you for explaining my dad and my youngest daughter to me!!! You need to get a Kindle and then get hooked up with a few places that will email you daily with free books in the genre you choose for your Kindle! I have over 3,000 books on my Kindle and I think I paid for 3 of them. Bought one today for $0.05! The other 4 I got today were free!!
