Some of you may even be using a more explicit version of the expression to convey your surprise!
The Gemini Men are the chameleons of the Zodiac and, as such, these men are far different from the initial front or facade they might present to the world; these creatures are both fickle and steadfast, wild and relaxed, adventurous and timid, chaotic and peaceful, or wise and fool-hearty… the extremes go on and on!

Gemini’s influence is the planet Mercury, the planet of communication so named after the god Mercury (also Hermes in the Greek pantheon). Mercury wears the winged sandals and winged hat. He is the messenger of the gods and the deity ruling over communications of all kinds.
Those who Mercury rules by Mercury are intelligent, perhaps a genius in some way, but particularly when expressing themselves about something in which they hold great passion for… a Gemini Man does so love to express themselves! (anyone thinking of that Madonna song right now… I think I have an earworm here…)
“Don’t go for second best baby,
Put your love to the test…
You know, you’ve got to, make him express how he feels,
And then you’ll know his love is real.”
No worries here Ladies if you are looking to get Geminis to step up and tell you how they feel about you… or about anything for that matter! With innate mercurial characteristics, your Gemini Man is a thinker.
The Gemini Man is one who enjoys spending time reflecting, learning, thinking, assimilating knowledge and learning new things, but his energy can come across as high strung… (almost like those small breeds of purebred dogs that threaten to drive you nuts with their incessant high-pitched bark at nothing at all). Your Gemini Man is, therefore, in motion all the time.
He might seem restless to the point of appearing as if there is anxiety brewing just beneath the surface! In fact, when his ruling planet Mercury goes retrograde, brace yourself for all hell to break loose! At that time, he’s likely to have clouded thinking and difficulty with communications.
He is apt to feel as if everything he does, and touches is in danger of falling apart! Not to worry too much, though, once the planet is no longer retrograde, your Gemini Man will go right back the way he was before the astrological event.
Gemini Man In Love & In Bed
(Venus in Gemini)
Think about the Gemini Man and his propensity for the extremes… and now… add the word extremes to the words in the bedroom. Now you’re getting the picture! That’s right, one thing is a certain fact… you will not grow bored in the bedroom of a Gemini! One day he might be as gentle as a mouse and the next… WHOA! When did you start dating Christian Grey?
One night you are making love, the next addressing carnal desires ever so vigorously with the King of Kink! If you are hooking up with a Gemini, the bedroom ends up being a laboratory with regular and ongoing experiments, and you best be ready, as his lab assistant, to try some new things.
You won’t find the same things on the sex menu every single night, so you’ll never grow tired and if the unexpected excites you, then carry on my friend… you just landed the perfect lover to suit your needs!
Gemini Man Traits, Personality, Characteristics
Bet you had no idea you were dating a paradox, huh? Where there are extremes and opposites, it is there you can find yourself a Gemini, trying to decide which end of the scale he wants to take up at the time. Not to worry, after experiencing one extreme, you’ll find your Gemini ready to sample its opposite extreme and within short order.
Part of the Gemini’s willingness to act on extremes or to shift from one extreme to another must do with their innate curiosity. Geminis are a free spirit. They have endless love for learning triggered by their intense curiosity.
They love to converse and if there’s no one to talk to, don’t if you find your Gemini talking to himself (or his other half so to speak). Why? No worries, he’s not crazy, but he is such a vocal creature that he has a deep appreciation for his own voice. Some of his favorite times to speak is when he is imparting wisdom or showing someone the depth of his knowledge on any subject!
Geminis can seem indecisive at times since they are prone to shift between extremes. Your Gemini Man might take a stance or position on something, prove quite vocal about it, and within 24 hours he has changed his mind and is making it known.
Don’t expect anything to be a permanent decision if your Gemini Man is the one making the call. Geminis not only have a spectacular sense of curiosity, but learning is their forte, and they are multi-taskers in every sense of the word! What some consider chaos the Gemini consider a Monday morning challenge after his first cup of coffee!
The Gemini’s key phrase is “I think,” and this is because he is all about feeding his brain. You know those people who seem to have bits and bytes of the most remote trivia ever, and if you were to play Trivial Pursuit with them, you would lose?
These creatures have spent their entire life absorbing everything they can, so intense is their appreciation for learning. He appreciates lectures, schooling, special activities after school, study groups, libraries, bookstores, watching the news, reading the newspaper: Anything allowing him to absorb knowledge.
The Gemini Man is there to soak it up like a sponge! Of course, they don’t want to keep it all to themselves… oh no, they want to share what they know with whoever they can! Ultimately, if you can get over their nervousness, chaotic energies, and apparent indecisiveness, you’ll find these creatures make some fascinating mates, never serving up a dull moment!
Hearth & Home
The home life of the Gemini may reflect his inconsistent nature and his indecisiveness, that is unless he has a wonderful partner who can take care of all the interior decorating. If so, he does he appreciates her for her skills! The Gemini Man wants a comfortable environment, but often he spends more time in his head then he does focusing on the condition of his external surroundings. Therefore, he might end up unintentionally neglecting his physical surroundings by filling it up with sources of knowledge, be it tons of newspapers, literature, magazines, and books.
Even in the modern age of technology where many things are available digitally, the modern-day Gemini Man is quite happy to tap into a good old fashion book. He’ll read just about anything if he suspects he will walk away with the new knowledge he seeks. He likes to collect sources of knowledge too, but if not careful, he can start making his home look like it belongs to a hoarder.
Routine and repetition are what bore a Gemini to death, so don’t expect to see him doing his household chores in any order. He also doesn’t like staying too long in one place. Especially if he starts to feel trapped or confined.
His home reflects his need for space, with plenty of hideaway storage (for all those darn books). He loves a lot of airy spaciousness to give him plenty of room to relax and breathe. Think of it this way: If you are establishing space with a Gemini, you’re making space for two, even if you can’t see his other half at the time!
Health & Well-Being
The sign of Gemini rules over the lungs, olfactory senses (smell and therefore taste) speech, and the ability to breathe freely. Thus, diseases that the Gemini Man in your life is likely to face include viruses, the common cold, bronchitis, lung infections, asthma, cough, and the flu. What’s more, with Mercury being the planetary influence of Gemini and the planet is that of communication, the voice, vocal cords, tongue, and hands are all under the Rulership of Gemini. Problems with laryngitis and any issue one develops with the hands, like repetitive motion injuries, fall under the Rulership of Gemini.
Since the Gemini Man is prone to extremes, they can become flighty in thought, and it is, therefore, best if they avoid caffeinated beverages. The same goes for the energy drinks which can prove to have a negative effect on the already very active mind of the Gemini. Issues with anxiety can become cumbersome and may require treatment. Symptoms stemming from anxiety include nail biting, pulling out of hair (literally), exhaustion, and paranoia when things get extreme. So active is the brain that Geminis can also suffer from insomnia.
Career & Finance
With their amazing minds, the Gemini Man makes an amazing teacher, lecturer, guide, mentor, and inspirational speaker. With Mercury as a ruling planet, the Gemini Man is one who makes for a fantastic reporter, journalist, or writer. The work environment must prove stimulating to keep the attention of your Gemini Man, or it won’t be long before he’s pursuing greener pastures so to speak.
Repetition is not his forte. He wants to be working on new things on a regular basis to maintain his interests. If the job doesn’t trigger his curiosity or his hunger for an increased intellect, he’ll move on to something that does.
He would make an exceptional lawyer or inventor. The amount of money a Gemini makes will prove secondary to his happiness on the job. This may lead to financial issues if he is working a job that fills his passion but not his pockets leading to more income going out than coming in all together.
How to Attract a Gemini Man
Gemini’s can be a bit aloof and flighty in relationships, only because they spend so much time in their own head. To attract him, you’ll have to draw him out by piquing his curiosity and appealing to his intellect which he loves to feed. Remember Gemini grows bored quickly, so once you’ve attracted him, you’ll have to keep things lively.
Bar hopping, parties, social gatherings, and anywhere he can completely be himself is an ideal dating place, and even better, it gives you a chance to switch up the places you go. Your Gemini Man is likely to find orange appealing. Why? Because orange is an energetic color that attracts.
You’ll need a fast, quick-witted mind and a good sense of humor to attract a Gemini. He’ll appreciate your flirtatious and chatty behavior, but don’t think that will hold on to him alone. You’ll need to keep him entertained and hopping if you want him to stick around. Geminis require stamina, and your Man will certainly appreciate a woman who has no trouble keeping up with him inside or outside the bedroom.
Dating a Gemini Man
Deep, philosophical conversations. Intense, but well-controlled debates, learning through lectures or other means of communication. Writing, talking and reading: All forms of communication and methods for sharing knowledge are a Gemini Man’s favorites. Your Gemini will appreciate music, magazines, books, and chatting with just about anyone who is willing. He will also enjoy taking trips as long as they are short and sweet.
People who do not communicate clearly or effectively. Information that is false, untrue, unclear, or misleading. False promises. Those who do listen intently to the spoken word and who, instead, focus on giving a reply or think about what to say next, thus leading to the loss of effective communication.
Superficial thought or talk; a Gemini Man is a deep, reflective thinker and one who craves intense interaction equal to or greater than the level of intelligence the Gemini currently has as this is how the Gemini learns best.
If the Gemini establishes balance, he will greatly disapprove of superficiality, disingenuousness, duplicity, lies, gossiping, harmful words, and bullying of any kind. Your Gemini doesn’t like boring routine or repeating things, and he really dislikes being restricted, confined, or alone.
Best Match for the Gemini Man
Friends and Family
Your intellectual Gemini man may feel as if the second part of himself (his twin) is missing all his life, and he, therefore, starts to seek out people to fill that role, even if it is on a subconscious level. The fact is Geminis are social and love to have plenty of friends. Remember, Geminis love to talk and share knowledge.
So, it should be no surprise if your Gemini Man has a thousand friends on Facebook and a new friend he introduces to you on a weekly basis! Family is an important element to your Gemini Man as well, including siblings. While there may be challenges within a Gemini’s family in his youth, the family survives it with little difficulty. In adulthood, the Gemini Man has a tighter family bond than ever before.
Geminis can be great dads too! They will share all the wisdom they have and pass down their pearls of wisdom to their children, and he’ll be ready to talk to them on their level! He can be funny, charming, and he passes on these characteristics to his children as well. He establishes amazingly strong bonds with his kids, so much so that these bonds are lifelong and unbreakable! If there are siblings in the household, they tend to get along with Geminis easily enough although his social nature might be more trickster-ish in nature as a child.
Just as these guys are great dads, they make terrific friends too. Anytime you want someone to socialize that Gemini Guy is happy to be there. When you need a bit of advice, he often has the smarts to help as well. When you are friends with a Gemini, you know you’ve established a lifelong friendship: Fair-weather friends Gemini’s are not!
The fiery signs are those that can handle the extreme nature of the Gemini Man the best, at least for the most part, but Aquarius and Libra also make great mates. Aries is one that can keep up with the rapid pace the Gemini Man is so used to living by, and they both share a need for adventure and excitement.
Gemini’s talkative nature might irritate the Aries from time to time, but if that talk is focused on the Aries partner, then all is well. In the bedroom, Aries and Gemini can ignite! Leo, a fiery, strong Zodiac sign is also an ideal pairing for Gemini, as it takes a strong-willed one to keep up with the dualistic nature of a Gemini Man. Libras crave balance which is what the Gemini needs. Thus, Libra can prove the answer to unanswered prayers.
Aquarius with her forward thinking, open mind, and innovation will appeal to the Gemini Man’s need for intellectual feed. Sagittarius makes the ideal mate for the Gemini though, as a Sagittarius female is affectionate, kind, upbeat, and social, she matches the Gemini’s conversational and intellectual attributes.
While you might think the intellectual and analytical Virgo might be an ideal mate for the intellectually hungry Gemini Man, you’d be wrong. Yes, it is true the two signs share the same desire for knowledge, but the Gemini Man is carefree and social while Virgo is more introverted and prone to worrying about everything. Just like Virgo, Pisces demonstrates a desire to be alone and to not be bothered by the outside world, and this doesn’t work well with Gemini’s need to interact with others.
Astrology & Zodiac Gifts
When gift buying for the Gemini Man, go for the unusual, innovative, novel, and unique. The more unique the gift is, the more likely he’s going to appreciate it. Oh, and whatever you buy, wrap it up weird so he can’t even begin to guess what it is… that’s half the fun, and it will peak his curiosity. Books (both electronic and physical), educational documentaries, short trips to local museums, and anything that gets you to a place where you can interact with others, that’s where he wants to be the most. A surprise party with all his friends will prove perfect!
Facts, Mythology, & Metaphysics
Janus is a two-faced God in the Roman Pantheon who corresponds with the New Year: One face looks to the past and the other the future, thereby bring all time together into the present. He represents both reflection and hope, and the duality of the Gemini Zodiac Sign. Many cultures have twins represented in myth.
In Egyptian Culture, Isis and Nephthys are Twin Sisters born outside of time along with Osiris, Horus, Set, and Horus, the Elder. Additional myths relating to twins include the story of Castor and Pollux or Hercules and Apollo: In later Christian mythos, Hercules and Apollo become recognizes as Adam and Eve – an important note when we discover the Tarot connections to Gemini.
In the minor arcana, the Knight of Swords is associated with the month of Gemini. The eight of swords represents the timeframe between May 21 and 31. The nine of swords signifies June 1-10, and the ten of swords signifies June 11 – 20, all under the sign of Gemini. In the major arcana, the Gemini sign is associated with The Lovers Card.
The card depicts Adam and Eve in paradise (imagery linked to twin mythos in the Greek and Roman cultures), and clearly reflects duality, opposites, and harmonious vibrations. It also depicts unison between the feminine and masculine.
A Gemini Man is associated with vibrational energies of the number five. The number resonates with understanding, adventure, companionships, sociability, motivation, variety, and experience: All the latter words scream out the attributes of a Gemini. The number five corresponds with experience, decisions, and choice.
On the opposite extreme, five resonates with rigid thinking, being afraid of change, stagnation, inaction, non-committal behaviors, restless, thoughtlessness, inconsistency, irresponsibility, and rash behaviors. Finally, this zodiac sign aligns with the Heart Chakra, an energy wheel dealing with inner peace, joy, and love.
