In heavens it starts from 60 degrees and extends up to 89 degrees. The Sun stays in Gemini from 15th June to 15th July as per sidereal zodiac which is followed by Vedic Astrologers and from 22nd May to 21st June as per Tropical Zodiac followed by Western Astrologers. The entry and exit dates of the Sun for any particular zodiac sign dose vary by one day during some years.
Gemini is ruled by planet Mercury, it is mutable, airy, masculine sign, governs lungs, hands, and the third house of the horoscope. Its characteristics are flexibility, intellectuality, analytic thinking, various interest, communication, duality and youthfulness of mind. It symbolizes analysis of ways to achieve goals, self-analysis, and valuing of own abilities, sisters and brothers, learning, relationship with environment and short travels.
Gemini people enjoy work with variety. They like anything to do with a number of different environments or travel. Their minds are thirsty for intellectual satisfaction. They read extensively and communicate widely in order to satisfy this longing for mental stimulation. This can make them to jump from one thing to another, searching for the golden opportunity which never appears. These individuals are perceptive, intuitive, and logical. They thrive on activity, new situations, and new people. Too many activities, however, may make them perpetually late to appointments. Gemini has the ability to see both sides of a question, which often leads them to fluctuate back and forth between the two opposing views. They use their mind rather than their heart. Logic and reason are their guidelines. They have great ability to use their hands and many times are ambidextrous. Misuse of their positive traits causes them to be undependable, fickle, indecisive, naggers, and big dreamers. Concentration can become difficult. Above all, the Gemini needs to learn to channel or control his energy and his mind. Instead of being a "jack-of-all-trades" and master of none, he can be the master of many.
Gemini like all other zodiac signs, contains three Nakshatra or lunar mansion, which are half of the Mrigashira Nakshatra, entire Ardra Nakshatra and two third of the Punarvasu Nakshatra.
Gemini House in Natal Chart indicates: This is where you will have vivification, curiosity, blossom time. This is where your conscious mind functions.

Gemini is the social butterfly of the Zodiac and has lots of friends. One side of a Gemini will want to go hang-gliding and run around outside, while the other is keen on sitting cozily at home and playing a board game. Their friends need to be as diverse as they are in order to keep up, or they just need to know when to let Gemini go free. If you can match their pace and temperament, you and your friend will have a blast. Take along your Gemini friend and enjoy the new perspective they give to even the most ordinary situations. If you can match wits with this one, they will respect your intellect and work to develop this friendship. The Gemini can bond well with lots of different kinds of groups. If they get bored with one set of people, they always have a few more groups that will be more interesting, for awhile.
The Gemini is both fun and funny and love to laugh, play and romp. They are possessed of a very active mind, which can lead to a short attention span. The best way to keep the Gemini around, and aroused, is through mental stimulation. Gemini also values adventure and travel, so a certain footloose and fancy free-ness will help this romance bloom. The duality of the Gemini allows them to see both sides of an issue, so in times of stress, they are much likelier to be a lover than a fighter. A union with Gemini can be many things, but it is certainly never boring. The Gemini’s lover must be able to keep up in the fast-paced game of life, lest they get bored and move on. Variety of expression and certain openness are things which will stimulate the Gemini and keep them around.
Gemini children are lively and amusing in their talk. They quickly pick up ideas and are easy to teach if you can hold their attention. They have a tendency to skim the surface of knowledge and must be encouraged to study in depth. They become easily bored with projects and should learn to finish a project before starting another. They do not take kindly to discipline, especially when told to stop talking. Diplomacy is needed in teaching them to allow others a turn at speaking. There will be a wide variety of interests and changing moods. As the Gemini child grows, they may be uncomfortable with high emotional situations. The highest need here revolves around diversity and mental activity. Consistency may equal boredom for the Gemini child. These children need to move about and should be provided with all sorts of little transportation toys. They feel a great need to communicate thoughts, which tends to spur early communication skills.
Gemini as Parents have such a broad interest in so many fields, and as such Gemini’s are a walking encyclopedia for their children. They encourage their children to read at an early age. Their love of conversing draws their children into many lively discussions which can be extremely stimulating to the child.
