As with every sign of the zodiac, Gemini certainly has many positives, but you will also find many negative traits in the Gemini arsenal. By nature, Gemini has a lot of fun-loving, childish innocence to them, and they love to express themselves. Most Gemini is quick-witted and clever, they are usually always ready for a good time, and they are quite intelligent people, who love matching their wits against others.
If you are a Gemini, you probably are quite the peacemaker, and you like to mend fences and make things right. You also are fiercely loyal, and you would certainly fight to the end for any friend or loved one you deem worthy.
When falling in love, Gemini will be the first one to make verbal contact, and communication is the key to their hearts. In fact, they find verbal communication to be just as important as physical love when it comes to their partners. Gemini can be quite flirty, and they might coyly move from one lover to the next until they find a person who they see as a match in regards to their intelligence and high energy. Gemini is passionate, exciting, and faithful, and they will remain with their partners through thick and thin thanks to their intense devotion.
All of this probably sounds great, but there are also some reasons why you might want to watch the motives behind a Gemini’s actions, and there are the Top 10 reasons Gemini is the worst zodiac sign:
10Lack of Consistency
One of the reasons Gemini is the worst zodiac sign is that they often show a lack of consistency. This can be difficult for more consistent individuals to handle. The main reason Gemini lacks consistency is that they have a hard time focusing on things that no longer interest them. It is common for Gemini to start a project, for instance, that they are really interested in at the time, but soon become disinterested in the same project.
Gemini is also not consistent when it comes to matters of the heart, and some might even call Gemini fickle when it comes to love. Gemini certainly enjoys love, like all of us, but because their emotions can be inconsistent as well, they can love you one day and hate you the next. Remember, the symbol of the Gemini is the twins, and like twins, a Gemini can easily have two different personalities. You will often see this in Gemini, and they really can’t do much to control it, so if you are a Gemini, or you know a Gemini, you should definitely get used to that trait.
As for their lack of consistency, the best thing a Gemini can do to get over that is to be aware of it when it happens. Then, when they realize that they are not being consistent, they can take the proper steps to fix it. Just realize that Gemini is a mutable sign, and because of this, they change their minds constantly.
Gemini can also be a superficial person, and this can rub other people the wrong way. They aren’t inherently superficial as you might think, though. It’s not like they are really focused on being vain, for instance. Instead, it is the issue they have with really delving deep into details and paying attention to the small things.
Another reason why many people see Gemini as superficial is that they barely scratch the surface of knowledge. In other words, they might know a little bit about a lot of stuff, but they are never an expert on anything. Why? Because they struggle to focus long enough to really dive into anything that doesn’t totally interest them. Can they get over this? Of course, but many are quite happy with this small amount of knowledge.
People also see them as superficial thanks to their inconsistency, which was mentioned before. They just can’t stick with one thing, and sometimes one person, long enough to really get to understand it or them. They also don’t have a ton of discipline, so this further causes issues in this department.
Gemini also loves the limelight, so people who see Gemini enjoying their attention might immediately believe that all they care about is attracting admirers left and right. This isn’t actually the motive of a Gemini, however. This superficial trait can also cause problems in relationships because Gemini won’t really take enough time to really get to know someone before leaving them in the dust.
Gemini is also an indecisive individual. These people can just not make a decision! A Gemini often knows what they want, but actually making that decision can be quite difficult. It is even more difficult for a Gemini to make a decision if it is a major decision, like one that could change their life like getting a new job or getting married. Though it makes sense for people to think about these major decisions, to a Gemini, it’s almost like every decision is a major one!
This lack of decision-making affects all aspects of the life of a Gemini, including in their relationships. This can be difficult for their partners to handle, and even siblings, parents, and friends can struggle with Gemini when it comes to making decisions. When you combine this indecisiveness with other negative traits of Gemini, you can easily see how this sign is one of the worst in the zodiac.
If you are a Gemini and you find yourself struggling with making a decision, it is best if you try to go with your first instinct. For instance, if you are trying to decide between one new coat and another, you should probably go with your first instinct. After all, that is the coat that appealed to you first, so you know that you will like it, even if you also like the other one. By making these decisions faster, you will certainly make your life easier.
7Lack of Direction
Gemini is well known for not having a lot of direction in their lives. In fact, Gemini has this issue with many things in their life, from choosing a career path to becoming interested in hobbies. Though it is true that a Gemini might say “I want to own a business,” actually taking the steps to do this is incredibly difficult for a Gemini who struggles with this trait.
It is important to note that just because a Gemini lacks direction, it doesn’t mean that he or she isn’t motivated. In fact, it’s much more likely that they are simply bored with the steps that is taken to get to their goal. They don’t want to deal with the mundane, they only want to get to the glory. Unfortunately, you can’t just go out there and be the CEO without working your way up the ladder, and this is what bothers Gemini the most.
So, if you are a Gemini how do you get past this? Focus. That’s it. It’s that simple to do, but if you have this special Gemini trait, you might not find it as easy as it looks. However, if you keep going and focus on the task at hand, there is no reason you can’t be the best you can be, but you do have to have that focus. It’s very easy to let the lack of direction take over, but it doesn’t have to. Even though this is a negative trait, it doesn’t have to hold you down.
If there is anything you could say about a Gemini it is that they are full of energy. However, this energy isn’t always balanced. In fact, all of this energy can make Gemini very anxious! Yes, it’s true that we all experience anxiety from time to time, but Gemini tends to feel this more than the other signs of the zodiac.
Because of this anxiety, stress often gets to Gemini quicker than it does to others, and since Gemini isn’t very emotional, they often tend to keep this stress inside. This, unfortunately, just makes the anxiety worse, and Gemini often finds themselves in a never-ending circle. Once you get into this circle, it is difficult to get out of.
Another reason that Gemini often has issues with anxiety is that they have to balance their twin personality. This can be taxing to Gemini, which may cause them to seek out more projects to keep them busy. Remember, Gemini likes to start projects, thanks to their “can do” attitude, but they don’t have a lot of follow through, and this, too, can cause anxiety. On top of this, it can be overwhelming to have all of this on their shoulders, so Gemini can get anxiety because of this, too! If you are a Gemini, learning some coping strategies to help your anxiety can greatly help you get through these stressful times in your life. Things like yoga and journaling can work wonders!
We have already touched on this a bit, but there is a good reason why Gemini is known as “The Twins;” they have a dual-personality. Thanks to this trait, people who know a Gemini probably have seen at least two, and maybe even three, four, or five personalities come out! One day, a Gemini might be happy and have no worries. The next day, however, they might be moody, sassy, and even mean. This is when people find themselves wanting to avoid Gemini totally and completely.
There is no other sign in the zodiac that has to work harder to control their multi-faceted personalities than a Gemini. Gemini is an amazing friend or partner in the best of times. They are fun, jolly, and love the excitement of a party. However, when their “happy” personality isn’t on, watch out! This can definitely cause problems for those who like and love a Gemini, but it also causes issues with Gemini themselves, especially in a Gemini child. They might have tantrums one moment and the next to be perfectly sweet and loving.
As a Gemini ages, they can definitely learn to control their multiple personalities with self-awareness and discipline. However, this is usually only the case when their environment is perfectly suited to them. In other words, in great conditions, a Gemini who finds themselves allowing a negative personality coming through can switch it off. However, when they are in conditions of stress, or anger, or even sadness, they can easily lose control of this and let their alternative personalities fly.
4Can’t Be Alone
Another reason why a Gemini is the worst zodiac sign is that they cannot be alone. In fact, a Gemini hates to be alone. Gemini is the most social of all the signs, so asking them to be alone is akin to torture for them. This sign thrives in social settings of all kinds, and they love to meet new people. However, it is important that Gemini does learn to be alone sometimes, as this can give them the time and space they need to focus on their goals, emotions, and priorities…things that Gemini has a hard time doing.
Gemini is ruled by the planet Mercury, which is the planet of ideas and communication. So, it should be no surprise that a Gemini is comfortable talking to almost anyone or anything…yes, these are the people who can talk to a wall and still get something out of the conversation. Since they love talking, they are always looking for social scenes, and they get a lot of energy from social interactions, even with small talk, something that several other zodiac signs hate with a vengeance.
Since this is when Gemini is truly themselves, they can feel very sad and lonely when there is no one else around to talk to. So, many times, they will seek out people to talk to, which can be a bit annoying to those signs who like to be alone, like Scorpio and Pisces.
3Passionate…to a Fault
Think about a movie where you see a distraught lover throw something across the room after their boyfriend or girlfriend breaks up with them. Crazy, right? Well, it’s just another day for a Gemini. We will call this trait “passionate,” though some ex-lovers might call it “crazy” or even “psychotic.”
Gemini loves extremes, and when they do finally find someone to love, they will love that person to the extreme. In fact, they often love that person so much that when they believe they are losing that love, they lose their minds and do irrational things like throw things across the room. To the casual observer, it might seem like Gemini has lost all control, and this, in fact, is exactly what has happened. They have so much emotion and passion for the other person that they keep under the surface, like a Gemini does, that when they lose all of their control, it all comes out…and boy, is it messy!
As Gemini has a dual personality, they can quickly “get back to normal,” sweep up the shards of pottery from the vase they hurled across the room and think nothing of it for the rest of the day. It’s almost like a pot that boils over…once the excess has fallen over the edge of the pot, the water inside is free to keep simmering. This is exactly what happens to a Gemini. It’s not only love that causes this, either, of course, but it can also happen in many situations, and as a Gemini, the best thing to do is to learn to control it, which definitely isn’t an easy task.
2Manipulate and Lie
One of the darkest traits of Gemini is that they can be very manipulative, and they are not afraid to lie to get what they want or to make themselves look better than they are. This, again, comes from the lack of feelings that many Gemini people have. Gemini loves gossip, for instance, and if anyone is going to take a small piece of gossip and spin the truth into the epic story of the century, it’s going to be a Gemini.
Keep in mind that lying and manipulation might seem bad, but a Gemini doesn’t always have evil motives. In fact, in general, they are not evil people, and they are far from the evilest sign of the zodiac. But if they want to be evil, of course, they can, thanks to their dual personality. However, in most cases, they are just lying and manipulating people to get what they want.
We all manipulate others, but Gemini is a master at it. This trait makes them great skeevy salesmen, but it might not go far with people who are good at seeing under the surface. Regardless of all of this, if a Gemini tells you something, odds are that you will believe them, whether it is true or not. They really are that good at what they do.
Finally, Gemini is the worst zodiac sign because they can be major backstabbers. It is definitely not unusual for Gemini to compliment you to your face and tell you how great your hair looks or how much they love your new shoes. However, as soon as your back is turned, they will likely be whispering to their friend about how much they hate your shoes and how your hair looks like you stuck a finger into a light socket.
Gemini is very social, and they generally like people, but if they see you as someone who has rubbed them the wrong way, you can bet that they are going to backstab you sooner or later. Of course, they also use their mastery in manipulation and lying to get others to follow suit, which could spell disaster for someone’s social life. If you aren’t ready to deal with this, you certainly don’t want to be on the bad side of a Gemini because they aren’t going to put up with it for too long before they start spreading rumors, lies, and worse…
Gemini loves to play games, too, and they almost feel at home in chaos, so you can also expect that many people will be pawns in their game when they want to make sure someone learns a lesson. They might even play one person against another with their honeyed words, and at the end of the day, those people might even come to their senses and say, “What were we even fighting about?” That is the power of the Gemini.
Every sign of the zodiac has some negative traits, and Gemini is certainly no exception. They can have illusions of grandeur, seek out the approval of others, and can be quite cocky in the way they live their lives. If you ignore them, show them any criticism, or disprove of them, you can definitely expect some sort of consequence, as they yearn to show that they are the best and the brightest. The more they are pushed, the more “insane” their behavior becomes.
If you are a Gemini and want to tame some of your negative traits, there is certainly hope. Things like exercise, yoga, and even meditation can help to reduce the stress and anxiety that you probably feel. You also might want to consider some type of therapy if you can’t get in control of this on your own.
If you love a Gemini, sometimes all it takes is to talk to them about their negative behaviors. It is quite possible that they don’t even realize that they are doing these things, and they will be happy to try to change how they deal with things. However, if they feel like you are trying to inherently change them, be prepared. They will think that you are criticizing them, and they won’t take kindly to this. So, think about how you will approach this before you try to talk to a Gemini, and be prepared for their manipulative ways.
