Geminis may be among the most loathed, or at least the most mocked, astrological signs. Spend any time on 鈥渁strology Twitter,鈥 that loose collection of users who discuss horoscopes and astrological signs and who spend a disproportionate amount of time delving out sign-specific insults, and you鈥檒l see ample evidence of Geminis being called trash for their mercurial, emotionally oblivious ways. Whether you鈥檙e skeptical of the science behind astrology or shopping for perfume based on your zodiac sign, one thing鈥檚 for sure: Right now we are in the middle of Gemini season, and you鈥檙e going to hear about it.

That sweet period from May 20 to June 20 is when the twins are in control and the party is on. It鈥檚 time for Geminis to stop apologizing for their dual natures and revel in their glory. And these great celeb Geminis show us that that鈥檚 totally ok, and here鈥檚 why:

Kanye West Yeezy Season 3 - Runway

1. They do everything. Kanye West is a textbook example of Geminis鈥 tendency to move quickly between many different things. This can be spun as either a bad thing (they can鈥檛 focus on any one thing) or a good thing, but obviously, it works for the best sometimes. The above photo was taken at Kanye鈥檚 debut of his latest album, The Life of Pablo. The event was a listening party in Madison Square Garden but doubled as the launch of his latest fashion collection, Yeezy Season 3, and also, by dint of the unique nature of the event, as a kind of performance art piece.


2. They are master communicators. Laverne Cox rose to mainstream fame by playing trans inmate Sophia Burset on Orange Is the New Black, and ever since she鈥檚 used her platform to advocate for LGBT 鈥 but especially trans 鈥 rights. In just one of many examples of her ability to communicate in a clear, direct way ideas some people still have trouble with, Laverne spoke to聽Time Magazine聽in 2014 about the challenges of growing up trans and where she sees the country as a whole in terms of trans acceptance.

3. They鈥檙e deep thinkers. Getting a degree from an Ivy League school might not necessarily prove that you鈥檙e invested in learning; you could simply be good at school or well-connected. But leaving a skyrocketing acting career to embark on a rigorous Harvard education, like Natalie Portman did? Yeah, that probably signals an interest in and some aptitude for thinking. Geminis, as the children of the zodiac life cycle, are often said to be incredibly inquisitive.

4. They鈥檙e fiercely independent. It takes some kind of inner strength to become not only one of the few Black women to succeed in the fashion industry, but one of the most famous models of all time. Naomi Campbell was a member of the original crop of 鈥90s supermodels, alongside Cindy Crawford, Christy Turlington and others. To this day, she鈥檚 killing the game on the catwalk and off, with a makeup line, a recurring role on Fox鈥檚 Empire and charity work.

5. They鈥檙e super witty. Amy Schumer鈥檚 sense of humor is a great example of Geminis at their best: She鈥檚 smart, quick-witted, draws on all kinds of different references and, most importantly, is funny as hell.
