I’m A Left-Handed Gemini and I’m Okay

When I started this blog not quite three weeks ago, I knew I wanted it to be about writing and books. I didn’t want to bore people with ramblings about my life or random thoughts.

But as I travel around WordPress, I see that there is a definite social component to most of the blogs. I also see from my blog stats that my “About Me” page gets hit fairly often. Although I am not one to bare my soul to virtual strangers (I’ll blame it on my upbringing), I do not want to appear reluctant to be communal. I will share my opinions, as respectfully as possible, in my posts and in the comments I leave around WordPress.

So, in the interest of satisfying any curiosity about myself, let me start by saying that I am indeed a true Gemini. No, I’m not an astrology nut (I mean astrology buff), but it’s fun to consider its merits.

(from www.astrology.com)

Gemini is the third Sign of the Zodiac, and those born under this Sign will be quick to tell you all about it. That’s because they love to talk! It’s not just idle chatter with these folks, either. The driving force behind a Gemini’s conversation is their mind. The Gemini-born are intellectually inclined, forever probing people and places in search of information. The more information a Gemini collects, the better. Sharing that information later on with those they love is also a lot of fun, for Geminis are supremely interested in developing their relationships. Dalliances with these folks are always enjoyable, since Geminis are bright, quick-witted and the proverbial life of the party. Even though their intellectual minds can rationalize forever and a day, Geminis also have a surplus of imagination waiting to be tapped. Can a Gemini be boring? Never!

Since Geminis are a mix of the yin and the yang, they are represented perfectly by the Twins. The Gemini-born can easily see both sides of an issue, a wonderfully practical quality. Less practical is the fact that you’re not sure which Twin will show up half the time. Geminis may not know who’s showing up either, which can prompt others to consider them fickle and restless.

They can be wishy-washy, too, changing their mood on a simple whim. It’s this characteristic which readily suggests the Mutable Quality assigned to this Sign. Mutable folks are flexible and go with the flow. Further, the Twins are adaptable and dexterous and can tackle many things at once. It’s a good thing, too, when you consider their myriad interests. The downside of such a curious mind, however, can be a lack of follow-through. How much can any one person do, anyway?

Yup that’s pretty much me, although I take exception to the wishy-washy part.

I love to talk, to read, to write, and I have been told that I have good communication skills. I get bored fairly easily, so I have to keep mixing it up— some of you who’ve been here before may have noticed that I’ve already edited my blog’s design template and probably will do so again, so don’t be surprised when you visit. I may even start another blog in the future about something else (or not), but writing is my true passion. I love to learn new things and I’m a technology junkie; I like toys- the cooler the better.

I’m also a leftie; did you know that only one in ten people are left-handed? I like to think that makes me special. :)

It also means I grew up with ink along the side of my left hand from dragging it across the paper as I wrote (clearly another advantage of personal computers), using left-handed scissors (unless I wanted to feel searing pain along my left thumb from right-handed scissors digging in), jamming the door lock in my parents’ home (by turning the door knob in the opposite direction from everyone else), and sitting at the end of the table at mealtime (to prevent knocking elbows with my right-handed sisters). I also had to learn to reverse everything I was taught to make it work for me like knitting, batting and catching (baseball), bowling, etc.

So, that’s me in a nutshell. (Did I say nut again?) All in all, I think I’m pretty normal. And until someone tells me otherwise and offers irrefutable proof, I’m gonna keep thinking it.

    I’m a left handed writer as well — Libra instead of Gemini and like you, I have done my fair share of smudging ink across my fingers and pages. I remember at school when they would have those annoying right-sided desks — usually an entire classroom of them and only one or two lefty ones. So unfair! No wonder most of us grew up being able to write upside down. I hold my paper twisted at a 3/4 angle. I get some strange looks.

  5. Liked your post, I’m also a left-handed Gemini fledgling writer, and I have the smudge marks on my hand to prove it!

  6. I’m joining the club of the left-handed Geminis! :) I can be very fickle which is a downside when you’re teaching as I change instructions just as easily as you can snap your fingers.
    It’s amazing how resourceful we can be to adapt to our environment. Those right-sided desks are indeed annoying (I only sat in one for my entire school career). I never used a left handed scissor (although I would, really really like one). As a result, my cutting is often crooked. I often sit next to a lefty in class so we don’t bump into each other when we write. I couldn’t learn the violin because my instructor was right handed and he’s be so confused reversing everything he did. As for bowling, I was lucky my coach was a lefty as well.
    Strangely enough, I use chopsticks with my right hand. It’s been said lefties are more likely to be ambidextrous. ;)

    I am also a left-handed gemini at the age of 24, I watch old black and white documentaries. I am glued to the tv when House, Bones, or CSI is on. I feel that everything in life is a puzzle. I can figure out things most wouldnt by looking at them. Taking pictures, doing make-up, styling hair, fixing computers, selling jewelry and modeling. People love my imagination and I get along with everyone. I sometimes confuse myself and get frustrated by problems I cannot fix. I know I am different and I wouldnt have it any other way.

    Wow! I didn’t realize how much I had in common with other left-handed gemini’s. Oh no! Does that now make me…’normal’? I certainly hope not. There are still infinite combinations of us all that still keeps it a difficult task to classify us. Poof! I’ve changed already.

  21. Another left-handed Gemini (ambitious amateur) writer. When I stay in a job for more than a couple of years I start to lose myself a little.

    I totally get the world as a puzzle thing someone mentioned about. Always trying to figure out what on earth the plan is. Only ever touching the edges.

    Only met one other in real life, years ago now. We were similar, yet different.

    I’m a leftie and a Gemini. I get soo bored if I’m stuck doing one thing at a time. It gets annoying sometimes. It’s funny though, because a lot of my friends question why I act the way I do, when it seems too normal for me to care. I just shrug it off. Now I have a reason why!!:)

    I also end up getting into minor trouble with people like my parents or my friends, but end up speaking so well that they get tongue-tied and I win the arguement. I think it’s funny

    I’m a left handed Gemini as well and I can very much relate to most if not all things mentioned in this blog. Also, for my fellow Lefty Gems, is it just me or do you feel like people judge more negatively than others once they discover these unique (awesome) traits about yourself?

  32. Left handed gemini reporting in…Ive been reading up on the concepts of both, yin/yang good/bad etc with gemini…Left handed part, lots of good positive information, I’m curious though, can someone point me in the direction of a webpage or anything discussing the positive/negative personality traits of being a gemini, while also figuring in not only the good but the ‘bad’ traits of being a southpaw…I came across an Encyclopedia of Superstitions, and nothing at all positive about the “Left.” Left-hand path, etc, etc…Im curious about how this could figure into being Gemini…I dont want to tell details from my life but looking back, a lot seems to make sense now, and thats not all good stuff I’ve done…

    Lemme know!
    Thanks!

  45. Hey there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any issues with hackers?

    My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing months of hard work due to no back up.
    Do you have any methods to prevent hackers?

  46. You are much more settled than I am. I’m a left-handed Gemini writer and my life has been nothing but problems. Surely all my fault, but still. I’m glad you wrote about this topic. If 1/10 of the people are left-handed, then what would the pct. of left-handed Geminis be – 1/112? (I’m terrible with math, but I know how to bargain with salespeople at Ralph Lauren, and I can pee out of a window if I’m not too drunk.)

My GPA ( grade point average) is always in the 90′s I’ve gotten 100% in two classes…… except math and science, I am not one of those people. I have good sociable skills and community leadership. I cant figure out why I am such a Lonely person even tho I have friends and stuff.. but at the same time I am Thankful for life. I am also a Spiritualist within my ceremonies. I am also an experience Bi-sexual If you ever want talk reply and we can exchange e-mails. Thanks
