Happy Birthday, Gemini! Those born between May 21 and June 21 are front and center this time of year. Inspiring and never boring, Gemini (represented by the symbol of the ‘twins’) represents two different personalities. They are sociable and ready for fun in one instance, then can be serious and thoughtful the next - Gemini, you keep people guessing! They are fascinated with the world itself, extremely curious, with a constant feeling that there is not enough time to experience everything they want to see; you may find your favorite Gemini traveling to off-the-beaten path destinations, learning new programs for work, or with their nose in a good book. With your changeable and open-mind, you are a friend that will always have both a listening ear and the ability to provide sound advice.
Try: a Global Book Club
While you can’t always satiate your thirst for worldly knowledge and experience with a vacation (we can dream) but you can combine your love of mental stimulation with your sociable side in a Global Book Club. Book clubs are the perfect way to learn and keep reading, discuss what you're reading, and make friends with other readers. The beauty of the internet and social media is that you don't even have to leave your house to join one. Goodreads has many book clubs to choose from, but we’re partial to the History Book Club with members from 171 countries across the globe for you, Gemini. Desiring something a bit more exclusive? The Rumpus Book Club sends you an unreleased book each month; you can then discuss what you’re reading on their forum over the course of a month, and at the end of the month the author of the book joins the conversation! Prefer to rub elbows with someone from the A-list? Reese Witherspoon hosts and organizes a book club via her Instagram where you can discuss each book in the comments section with Reese and other followers.
Treat yourself and let your creative side soar; create a custom Hidden Message Necklace. Your zodiac pendant necklace is a subtle yet eye-catching symbol that reflects your unique personality. Pair your star sign pendant alongside the birthstone necklace in either emerald (May Gemini babies!) or moonstone (Gemini born in June). Emerald is a rich green stone that is from the same stone family as aquamarine, beryl. Moonstone, on the other hand, runs from clear to milky white with a trademark, almost otherworldly, blue and rainbow glow. The glow of a moonstone was so unique and highly revered that ancient Romans believed the stone was born from solidified rays of the moon. Either are a beautiful way to express who you are, gemini. Pair the charms that reflect your birth month and star sign with your initials, or other symbols that are meaningful to you.
Give Back: Action Book Club

Gemini, Action Book Club is the perfect combination of your love of learning, connecting with others, getting out in the world, and doing something good!
