Happy Birthday Gemini Kids!

The Sun is in Gemini from May 21st to June 21st this year. Happy birthday to all those Gemini kiddos (and mommies and daddies)!

While all children might be said to be 'sponges' who absorb whatever they learn rapidly and eagerly, that goes double for Gemini children. They are born with heightened curiosity and a love of asking questions, which can come out in many ways, from the classic "why is the sky blue?" to the mischievous "what does this button do?"

This questioning doesn't always come verbally, but can also come out in their actions. Many parents of Gemini children have observed how much they like to take things apart to see how they work, and put them back together again (or attempt to!). Geminis often love puzzles of all kinds, be it mechanical, word, or jigsaw.

Geminis also tend to be very playful, appreciating cleverness and wit, and hearing as well as telling and making up their own jokes. They are also usually very quick and observant and can be great mimics (sometimes to their parents' dismay!)

Sammy & Thomas Black, the 4-going-on-five and 3-year-old sons of Jack Black, were both born during the sign of Gemini. Sammy, with his Gemini Sun and Sagittarius Moon, can be quite playful and expressive, although he may not always want to be center stage. His Mars and Saturn together in Leo reveal a tendency to hang back a bit before he decides to come forward with what he wants to show off about himself, sometimes waiting for another's lead.

Thomas, the youngest, can be quite the charmer, with Venus (the planet of charm!) so close to his Sun, and also quite expressive and clever, with Mercury in the sign of Gemini. Others will soon be surprised to find out how dry and sarcastic his wit can be with that Moon in Capricorn. Capricorn's humor can often be so deadpan that they can sneak humor in under the radar, letting it dawn on their audience a couple of moments later for a great effect.

In a USA Today interview, Jack Black and Angelina Jolie, voice stars of Kung Fu Panda 2, talked about the film and what their kids thought of it. Jack said:

"The kids just think Kung Fu Panda is an actual bear," he says. "But we act out our own scenes, go on our own adventures. The story gets a little disjointed; we usually forget our mission by the time we get in the living room. But we don't care. I'm learning my kids are funnier than I am."
Just wait, Jack! Thomas will probably be able to get some good zingers on his humorous and quick dad as he grows up!

Do you have an Gemini kiddie in your life?
