Star buys: our picks for Gemini season

Continuing her astrologically-guided column, Rémy Mishon details what to buy for a Gemini, the twins of the zodiac

Mythology suggests that the Gemini had so many interests and pursuits that it had no choice but to clone itself in order to do it all. It is from this desire that the duality commonly attributed to the Gemini was born. Despite the negative connotations and accusations of being two-faced, the Gemini is more open and honest than people might think.

Symbolised by the celestial twins, this air sign is the most fluid and adaptable of all the zodiac. Geminis juggle hobbies, careers and people, acting as the social butterfly of all the signs. They are known for their ability to be all sweetness, light, fun and games one moment, and serious the next. Despite the bad rep, we cannot resist them. They are the life and soul of any party and the world would be a much duller place without them.

Like Virgos, Geminis are governed by Mercury, the planet that rules communication. Unlike Virgos, Geminis express their emotions externally and openly rather than processing things internally. The Gemini is about outward expression, often using their hands to punctuate their speech. 

Yellow and green are the best colours for the sign, as they encourage the life-affirming energies Geminis thrive off. Inside the home, lavender and lily of the valley should be planted, potted, plucked and scattered freely.
