GEMINI (MAY 21-JUNE 20)
Gemini, you crave variety, and as a result, your home either looks wildly creative or like a total mess! Your style is varied—playful meets traditional, an eclectic mix of old–fashioned and modern, even a crazy mix of clashing styles that you manage to pull off. Creativity, color and fun should all be part of your home. You can rock out unusual color combinations like orange and lavender, or hot pink and chartreuse. Of course, today’s favorite paint color can become tomorrow’s most hated hue, but that won’t stop you from slapping a coat or two on the wall when inspiration strikes.
Because your sign is ever-changing, you have a hard time sticking with one look for long. Think short–term when it comes to décor, to accommodate your frequent urge to redecorate. Take a deep breath before you start a huge renovation project, too. Impulsive Geminis often get pulled into new projects before finishing the ten you started. Make sure you can commit the proper time to renovations, or you could end up with half-painted walls or other messes.
In many cases, your environment may actually be too stimulating. If you find yourself feeling pulled in too many directions (even for a Gemini), consider toning down your décor. That doesn’t have to mean boring. Just try a Zenlike scheme with just a few wilder accents. Nothing grabs a Gemini’s attention more than your computer, but if you find yourself Instant Messaging until one a.m. when you’d rather relax, put your computer in a separate room, or disguise it in a clever cabinet.
Your home has lots of buzz and energy, but you’re really not the homebody type and your tastes change quickly. Funky clutter and piles upon piles of clothes (from your impulse shopping trips) greet the eye. You might even need to hire a clutter consultant because you accumulate so much junk! Push yourself to keep food in your refrigerator, and if you insist on cleaning the house yourself, multi–task while you work. Cook or scrub while you’re checking voicemail. Gab on the phone while you attack the dust bunnies under your bed. Stay as organized as possible so that you can actually enjoy the home you’ve created.
