Gemini

Gemini: Geminis are always positive. Geminis are adaptable because they can change their motivation. Geminis are cheerful, out-going and easy-going. If you have a friend who is Gemini, you will be positive all day, but when they are in a bad mood, they will change their manners quickly. Geminis go everywhere together, hand-in-hand. Geminis are curious, talkative, versatile and mentally active. Their minds can move from one topic to another with great ease.
Possible negative points of Geminis : Sometimes, Geminis may be very selfish when they do something , just thinking about themselves, and don’t care about others’ feelings. Faced with something difficult, they are always changeable and confused, so they can never decide on something

Leo

In Greek and Roman myth, Heracles killed the Lion of Nemea. Afterward the Lion is designed as constellation. People who are Leos have bright, enthusiastic personalities. Also people who are Leos have realistic and active personalities. They are good in that they have leadership qualities. But they have difficulty in controling themselves.

Virgo

Virgos are meticulous, effcient, perfectionistic, careful, organized, discriminating and pay attention to details.
The Virgos’ motto could be: “Perfect is almost good enough.”
Virgos have the uncanny sense to see what’s wrong with a person, a situation or environment.
I think the Virgo in my heart of hearts wants to be useful. Virgos can be the most selfless, dedicated, indefatigable workers in the world.

Gemini
Geminis are clever and active. So they usually have many friends, and maybe, because of their good brains, they study very well. Besides that , Geminis are good talkers. So maybe you can always see Geminis talking and they can talk to everyone, because Geminis have two personalities. They are always mercurial. So they may have many ideas at one time and can’t even choose. Because I am a Gemini and I like to research about constellations very much. I know Geminis well. Some people may say Geminis are fickle in love, but I think it is not true. Geminis just like to play and like to try new things. If they really love someone they will be devoted and never change.
