The Gemini Author: May 21-June 21

Saul Bellow

(1915-)

Writers born in the intellectual air sign of Gemini, ruled by the volatile planet of Mercury, can be typed as "dual" in their thinking processes, as the Latin word for "twins" indicates. Mentally agile, curious, and multiform, the creations of Geminis are marked by their variety and by the tendency to polarize human characteristics for dramatic effect.
