Gemini are known to be the most social and outgoing of all the zodiac signs. Represented by the twins, and ruled by the planet Mercury (the planet of technology and communication), they're often incredible thinkers and intellectuals with a happy-go-lucky zest for life. This is the girl who fits in a spin class before work, manages a style blog for herself AND her dog, goes to mandarin lessons (which she just picked up recently) afterwards, and then finishes a couple pages of that screenplay she's been writing...all in a single day. That might seem like quite the marathon to most, but for this mentally charged Air sign, there's always more to explore. Think of them as the sparkly sponge of the zodiac, soaking up new hobbies, interests, and friends without hesitation.
It’s no wonder then that Geminis are particularly gifted when it comes to marketing, speechwriting, and making conversation! As the sun transitions into Gemini season this year, expression and communication come to the forefront of our attention...enter: social media. Since its introduction into mainstream culture, social media has completely transformed the way we communicate, allowing us to share our lives with friends, family, complete strangers, and the occasional sex-spam bot sliding into our DMs. Let's take a closer look at how each sign tends to communicate in this socially-driven atmosphere, and see what platform suit them best!
Facebook Signs: Aries, Leo, Aquarius
Popular and not afraid to share every last detail about themselves, these are the Facebook signs of the zodiac. Try not to get jealous of these active and social signs, as their timelines will probably be flooded with photos from last night's lavish adventures and parties (yes, all 20 selfies were necessary). They are seemingly always on the go, bouncing from good times to even better times in glitz and glamor. How she makes it from the 4 A.M. after hours club to Sunday brunch with the gals, we may never know. But we do know that her salmon avocado crostini with poached egg was apparently amazing. Facebook signs are quite comfortable taking the spotlight and usually thrive from positions of power, which makes them naturally gifted leaders and gracious hosts. Adventuresome and fun, these signs' lives are full of excitement...and they're not afraid to show it!
Twitter Signs: Gemini, Cancer, Sagittarius
Fast, efficient, and minimalist, these signs are experts at getting straight to the point. You won't find any mess or clutter on these signs' timelines! They want to know where things are happening, why they're happening, and they want to know it yesterday. They always seem to be up to date on the latest news and gossip, giving you a full debriefing on the most recent celebrity Twitter beef before you can even say hello. While these signs enjoy Twitter, their insatiable desire for everything new and exciting most likely lends them to using multiple applications at once. This is the girl who can get lost in a string of Reddit, YouTube, or Wikipedia searches on "Deadliest Plane Crashes In History" or "Cats Riding Scooters" for a few hours and then wonder where the time went.
Instagram Signs: Taurus, Libra, Pisces
Instagram signs are visionaries who enjoy using their creativity to express themselves. They are sensuous souls with a keen eye for beauty which gives them the ability to turn the ordinary into something extraordinary. Remember your roommate from college sophomore year? Yeah, she has 1.2 million followers now...oh you know, it's casual. This revolution of the blogger-turned-social-media-superstar is certainly chalk full of these signs -- amassing thousands of likes on every photo, which appear to be effortlessly flawless. Whether it be a picture of a donut or a selfie in bed, these signs somehow manage to showcase both complex and mundane subjects in a beautiful and unique frame (pls teach us your ways!). It's not surprising then that many of these signs have careers in the arts such as painters, sculptors, graphic designers, and editors. They love to tell a story.
Tumblr Signs: Virgo, Scorpio, Capricorn
Private and shy with a wicked sense of humor, these are the seemingly quiet signs who keep to themselves. You won't find selfies or brunch photos on these signs' timelines and don't expect them to be impressed by your follower/following ratio because they couldn't care less. Tumblr signs are much more likely to post inspiring/edgy artwork and witty memes that some may or may not deem inappropriate (sorry for the swearing Aunt Margaret). Rather than constantly updating their statuses and showcasing their every move, these signs prefer to leave a mysterious trail of clues of obscurely angled photographs and cryptic song lyrics that elude to a secretly adventurous existence -- like a 21st century Carmen San Diego.
So there you have it, social butterflies. With both the moon and Venus in Aries and Mercury transiting through Taurus, this Gemini season has the potential to be very active for networking and all things social, so get out there! You'll find yourself sharing and caring for friends, family, and new flames (c'mon it's almost summer) for the next few weeks. How do all our #lunatics feel about our social media groupings?
