Given Gemini’s Air Sign status, you might also feel a burst of airy energy pulling you towards the great outdoors, as this infinitely curious sign craves knowledge in the form of books, nature, travel and experiences. Embrace that wanderlust energy by going on a nature-filled hike or simply reading a book on your back porch—whatever gets you off that couch and moving! Known as the most controversial zodiac sign, the Twins have the fascinating skill of being social and warm one minute, then shy and reserved the next—and boy are we going to feel that contradictory energy this season.
