Gemini Colours, Patterns, and Designs
Gemini is associated with bold colours such as electric blue, bright green, and yellow, as well as all geometric patterns. Gemini is ruled by Mercury, the planet of communication and quick change, which means that Gemini preferences may change from day to day, though this sign tends to stick with cheerful colours and avoid the gloomier ones.
Geminis are usually drawn to complicated geometric patterns that take thought to interpret and contain many different elements. Patterns that include lines and angles are usually preferred to those with curves or natural elements.
Gemstones associated with Gemini include those in Gemini colours, such as agate, adventurine, and turquoise stone, as well as those associated with certain months, such as emerald (May), pearl (June), and alexandrite (June).
Gemini Trees, Plants, Flowers, and Foods
If purchasing plants, seeds, or food, there are certain trees, herbs, and edibles associated with Gemini. Gemini trees include the hawthorn (May 13-June 9), the oak (June 10-July 7), and all nut-bearing trees.
Flowers, herbs, and foods associated with Gemini and its ruling planet mercury include parsley, lavender, dill, lily of the valley, pomegranate, licorice, cress, tansy, vervain, caraway, dill, fennel, and marjoram. Moss is also associated with the sign of Gemini.
The Atypical Gemini
Not all Geminis will conform to the typical Gemini profile. A Gemini whose rising sign is in Capricorn, for example, will be very different from one who has Leo rising. A Gemini with Capricorn rising will likely be more conventional and less interested in modern fads, whereas with Leo rising, a Gemini will be even more extroverted and usually drawn to arts and crafts.
