Gemini Girls

She smiled as I walked in the room. That slow simmer in her eyes as she drank me in from head to toe told me I’d been missed. My breath caught. My face flushed. I felt the curl of anticipation tighten my loins. I needed this. I needed to feel the missing again. I’ve missed you too baby, I smiled back. And dropped my bag silently to floor…

Sigh. Imagination is a wonderful tool…

I’ve been thinking a lot lately about the state of my missing-ness. You know, that wonderful place inside that leaps with happy at the thought of seeing someone again. Whether it’s been a day or a lifetime. And I realize that as a hard core Gemini, I need that in my orbit continuously. Anticipation. Longing. Good old fashioned “missing you”. The stuff that keeps my twins glued side by side. And in harmony.

Ya. It’s a problem.

If I had to compare my zodiac selves they’d be sisters of opposing natures. Twins. But not alike. At all. One hard and defensive; a warrior and survivor. The other soft and inviting; the wanton seductress. One desiring to be mother, housewife and nurturer. The other brazen, sexy, the whore in bed. One afraid of commitment. Of limitation. Needing to soar. Inspired by freedom. The other wanting safety. Security. A life partner. Grounding.

They war.



A tireless and exhausting struggle for supremacy. Emergence a battle with every breath. With every thought. With. Every. Fucking. Feeling.

And I have yet to find The One who genuinely gets that. And is truly okay with my Mercury Girls. They are manageable. But they each have specific needs for expression.

Double sigh.

My therapist had me do something akin to the Myers-Briggs test after our second session. Something to help her determine my personality type. My character traits. Things that are decisively me. The questions felt redundant after the 50th. But I persevered. Mindful of her not-so-hidden search for my suicidal tendencies. I had the strangest sense that I’d be committed if I answered those particular ones in the affirmative one too many times. So I didn’t. But the truth is, I do love life and have no real desire to end it. I just get overwhelmingly tired of it all at times…

The conclusive of this questionnaire is many-fold, but the bottom line is that I am a dichotomy. Her word. Not mine. Apparently, most of my character and personality traits are at odds with one another and shouldn’t coexist within one person.


Ya think?!!!

Refreshing to hear confirmation of my self-evident truths.

Marilyn, Angelina and Drew.

Beautifully fucked up women.

All Gemini Girls.

Our commonality?

The unabashed need for love.


And then I found this little ditty online…

Romance and Gemini women go hand in hand, but it is quite a task to get a Gemini woman to settle down for a commitment. Since stability and consistency are tangents to her personality traits, the idea of committing to a single person can be a daunting job for her.

Gemini women aren’t the criticizing types. As such, they find something good or positive in each person. And when looking for a potential partner, if you manage to stir a Gemini woman with your excellent conversational skills and strike a chord with her mental, spiritual and physical self, she’ll be yours forever.

Romancing a Gemini woman is like enjoying the company of many for she never is the same person twice. She may be exceedingly sweet one day, and the very next day might turn into your harshest critic and the following day compliment you for something she had just criticized the previous day. But once she meets up with her perfect partner, expressions of love take the primary seat.

She loves small sentimental gestures that keep the romance alive and the relationship kicking. In return, she’ll treat you beautifully by being your best friend, your sports partner, your racing competitor and your exciting, passionate lover, all at the same time.

The key to keeping your Gemini woman is by mentally exciting her and stimulating her senses by making her feel challenged and entertained. Just remember the phrase, catching is not the same as keeping when it comes to Gemini woman! So, if you have successfully managed to rope in a Gemini woman as your girlfriend, consider it a job only half done. If you can’t hold her interest for long, then, poof! she’ll be gone to seek greener pastures!


Lol…need I say more?

I think I’m finally getting to know my Gemini Girls. 😉

  1. Sounds a bit like my Pisces traits of two fish swimming in opposite directions. It can be maddening. It’s good to know yourself, though, because then you can start to love and appreciate all of the subtleties that make you special and unique.

    • Lol…oh you Pisces. I know your waters very well. 😉 And you are absolutely correct. As I look and listen, truly look and listen, I see things I just never owned before. Fully. I saw it. Accepted it. And moved on lol. But now, after a life sounding a bit like a skipping record, I am listening closer to the repeat. And hearing things in a new and kinda fascinating way! I kinda like it too… Thanks you. Always nice to hear your voice. Cyberhugz lol…I know, I know. Deal with it! Hahaha

      • So much of this post sounds like me. I crave adventure and romance yet need stability and a solid family life too. Finding someone who can give you all of that and be understanding too is a tall order but I think those folks are out there. I think understanding yourself is key to finding a good match. Keep digging into your psyche. I bet you find a really amazing woman.

      • First I’m gonna work on me. The rest is yet to come. And ya, I get the whole Pisces resemblance! I truly do!!! Used to cause such angst to be with someone so similar. But when you’re both grounded, at least as much as Gemini and Pisces can be grounded lol, it can be heaven. Thanks for the encouraging words tho. Love hearing from you!

      • Lol, why yes I did. And I still remember how to do this too that you taught me: ❤

  2. That’s fascinating, the commonality of Gemini girls. For some reason I’ve always gone for the Scorpios, without even realizing it. My wife is a Scorpio, so I finally lucked out. Seriously, almost every. single. time. The inner workings of the human heart….

      • Lol at times. I’m not sure where I’d begin…but that is plan for the not so distant future. Thank you for that tho. I’m so proud of you and your efforts at self-publishing and the fact that you’ve actually written a book!!! (Or 2 lol) Such dedication, discipline and willpower is necessary to finish one…not to mention you are ridiculously talented! Yup. Kinda my hero right now. 😉😁

      • Aw, thank you. I’ve been doing it for so long, it’s second-nature to me. Anyone can self-publish, though. It may not result in a lot of sales (believe me!), but it was a satisfying thing to accomplish. I think if you have a voice that needs to be heard, it’s a good way to go. You write it, THAT’s your accomplishment, getting it down. Particularly with a memoir or something that deeply personal. The things you write, your style and voice, are very powerful. The intense honesty and memories you dredge up… I’m actually in awe of you. I don’t think publishing is nearly as important and just getting it out, if only for yourself. You’re the one you have to satisfy, not an audience.

      • Humbled my friend. And thank you so much for this wonderful connection. I value your person, the one I’ve met here 😉 and I value your opinion and voice when it reaches out to me. And no, I didn’t think self-publishing would pave the road to riches lol but I agree it would be an utterly satisfying experience just to complete a work. It is the goal! So we shall see. And thank you again for your inspiring words. My heart is so full of…life. And while I have grown and surpassed stereotypical societal expectations given my beginnings, there are experiences that have scarred me deeply and it’s those experiences that need a voice in order for me to heal. It’s not always easy to read…a thing I’ve been told by some, but my honesty is the only way I know how to express myself. You are kind and generous in your praise and I wiggle with delight in the glow of it. Thank you 😊

      • I so respect writing that’s honest … it doesn’t matter if it’s about an alien invasion or matters of the heart. If it’s honest, you can tell because the author is committed to the telling. And particularly when you’re writing so much of yourself, your past, your pain… it’s riveting and painful to read, and also remarkable. I don’t know that I could write about my own past with such clarity and focus, and so I fictionalize… but not lie. I think there’s a difference. And I do believe it’s a healing process. I don’t care for the thought of people being categorized or being identified by stereotypes. Everyone is unique, everyone has their own pain and insecurity… what you see ain’t the whole story. Some stories need to be told, and I think yours is one of them, if only to yourself and those you trust. You’re the person who needs (deserves) to heal. 🙂

      • Lol correction. I do know where to begin the memoir…at the beginning hahaha…it’s the publishing part that’s is completely bewildering to me!

      • The writing is the hard part. Self-publishing has become fairly simple. I was intimidated the first time, but it’s a straight forward process. I could help you with that if you decided that was the route you wanted to take.
