While every household will play by different rules, understanding each zodiac sign’s innate domestic style can help you sort it out.
What it like living with a Gemini?
An eternal kid at heart, the Gemini family member is the undeniable wild child.
You love them, you love them not. As a mercurial Gemini, family can be a mixed bag. Socially, they enjoy the company of aunts, uncles, kids, cousins, siblings—the more, the merrier. They’re the first one on the dance floor at weddings and a live wire at holiday gatherings. Yet, they also have a deep need for individuality that doesn’t bode well for being part of a unit. If a certain lifestyle is celebrated in their fam, they’ll be the one to rebel, developing an identity and style that pegs them as the proud and self-proclaimed “black sheep.”
As the zodiac’s communicator, uncensored conversation is one of their favorite things. Relatives who allow them to express opinions without judgment will be their favorites. Playful adventurers also rank high with them. They’re a big kid with an eternally youthful spirit, the one who organizes family outings and adventurous vacations.
As a parent, Gemini is active, fun, and hands-on. The Gemini family member will get down on the floor and build a Lego castle, set up an Easter egg hunt, and tutor their kids on their homework for hours on end. They sometimes forget to be the disciplinarian though, and while it’s fun to be BFFs with their brood, they need to work to provide more structure for them, like setting bedtime and curfew.
Astrology tip for living with a Gemini
“Can you believe Uncle Shane said that to Cousin Teresa?” (Insert mortified gasps.) With their curious mind, the Gemini family member is a magnet for gossip—and they can’t help but spill the tea. What they consider “venting” can do major damage to relationships between relatives.
Getting tangled up in the middle is no fun either. See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil: Unless someone comes to them directly to ask for help with an issue, they do their best to keep outta the biz of others. It’s not their job to fix their family’s problems, so they are better off tending to their own backyards instead.
