Response to Purplemaeve: I was a Gemini daughter (my Gemini mother passed away four years ago), and from what I remember of my childhood, my curiousity and need to communicate are what I remember the most. Oh, and also the MAGIC of everything around me. I was very empathetic and also very vulnerable. Always wanted to please my Mother, felt horrible when I didn't. So, even if your daughter (or son) seems like they are too mental to be hurt, don't believe it - its just a defense.
If you give your Gemini love, and respect - you will have a magical, loving, forever friend.
