HOROSCOPE

Air is your element and as a Gemini, you have the most fluid pairing with air out of any of the zodiac signs. Air causes the winds of curiosity to constantly stir inside you. Once you take to this curiosity, your pursuit of knowledge blows with force and purpose. Embracing the fluid qualities of air will foster a sense of fulfillment within you. Be warned, taking to the more stagnant qualities of still air, you run the risk of becoming aloof and emotionally distant.
