As a Gemini born on May 23rd, you feel most alive when surrounded by others. Seeing the world is important to you, but interacting with it is a necessity.

Your genuine interest in communication draws others in and makes you a highly sought after friend and companion.
Your sign's elemental pair is air, which also has great influence on your personality.

As you embrace changing winds, you can avoid the mistake of being unmovable or stubborn. If you deny the influence of air, you run the risk of becoming detached and remote.
The Gemini's paired planet is Mercury, which harnesses the increased power of mentality and communication.

Take time to develop more realistic expectations, as this will play a key role in your future success.
