Geminis are the epitome of what it means to have two sides to one’s personality. Known as “The Twins,” Geminis literally seem to have two polarizing personalities sometimes. One on hand, Geminis are known for being friendly, open-minded, outgoing, social butterflies who never seem to have a frown on their face. As Gemini is an air sign, these folks don’t ever allow themselves to get bogged down in life. They seem to float through it, not letting anything weigh them down. Geminis have tons of friends and are usually up for any kind of adventure.
However, the other twin gets restless easily, can seem superficial at times, and makes decisions impulsively. The dark side of this sign comes out when the Gemini is under stress, depressed, or anxious about something. Geminis tend to feel restless often because of this “split” in their personality.
Cancers have many positive traits, even though they tend to have low self-esteem and forget about what makes them amazing people. They are endlessly caring, empathetic, devoted, loyal, deep souls. They are also excellent listeners and will let you cry on their shoulder even if they barely know you. Though they have problems opening up to people, they will sit and listen to you all afternoon and drop what they were doing to help you. Cancers are very creative, genuinely kind, sensitive, beautiful people who are often misunderstood and treated like a doormat due to their purity and giving nature.
However, this sign deals with a lot of demons that most people don’t know about. Because of their hypersensitivity to the world around them, they are very prone to anxiety, depression, and other mental disorders. They just feel as though no one understands them, which leads to isolation and self-pity. Many people view this sign as self-absorbed, and this may be true to an extent. However, Cancers are not obsessed with themselves in a prideful way, but rather, a deeply contemplative, even overly-judgmental way. Cancers have very turbulent emotions that weigh them down often, so they have to take quite a bit of breathers just to get by in life. Being a crab can be quite tiring, as this writer knows from personal experience.
