As a Gemini born on May 21st, you experience the world outwardly and are energized by people. Your excitement with others is reflected in thoughtful and expressive communication. Conversation is your most comfortable workspace and words are your favorite tool. You are rarely at a loss for words and you commonly enhance the social experiences of those around you. These qualities make you a valued friend and companion.

Air

Your sign's paired element is air and of all the zodiac signs, you have the only mutable relationship with the element. Your special connection with air allows your words to be as changing and flowing as the wind. Air's influence explains for the breeze of curiosity that often stirs within your being. As you embrace air's positive qualities you will continue to acquire knowledge. Be careful to avoid the aloofness that is amongst air's stagnant influences.

Being in the first part, or Decan, of the Gemini sign, you are doubly influenced by the power of Mercury. Mercury harnesses the power of rational communication and thereby supports your thinking and adaptability. Although you prefer to keep a social distance at times, your Mercury inspired sense of humor has earned you many friends and admirers. One of your greatest challenges will always be your perfectionist nature. Although there is nothing wrong with wanting the very best out of yourself, it may lead to disappointment if you create unobtainable standards. Take time to develop a more realistic mindset and expectations, as this will greatly assist you through life.

Even if you feel distanced from situations emotionally, you have unique ability to express your thoughts in a way that resonates in the hearts and minds of those around you. You may take the chance to use this skill lyrically, which was the path of Notorious B.I.G. who was also born on May 21st. In a more traditional route, your outgoing personality and gifts for communication would be a good fit for business, advertising, or pubic relations.

The Sabian Symbol for your birthday is a glass-bottom boat, which reveals the wonders of the sea. You have a consciousness that is in touch with life and have the ability to discover a new dimension of reality. The depth of your realizations should not be overlooked.
