5 Gemini Spirit Animals That Perfectly Represent the Sign

The Zodiac wheel is fascinating, where most (but not all) signs are represented by animals. Gemini is represented by the twins (Castor and Pollux). However, this sign has 5 very special Gemini spirit animals that represent Gemini qualities in their everyday life. These are them:

5 Gemini Spirit Animals

  1. Deer 
  2. Peregrine Falcon 
  3. Miniature Schnauzer 
  4. Fox 
  5. Spider

1. Deer

Gemini is represented by the deer in Native American “Earth Astrology.” It is an incredibly graceful creature. These are the reasons the deer is considered one of Gemini’s spirit animals:

Deers bring joy to others

These animals are simply beautiful – just look at Bambi! They bring a lot of joy to those who watch them. Geminis too bring a lot of joy to those they are with. Their energy is light, like a butterfly. They make people happy!

They live in herds or small groups

Deers are social creatures that enjoy living together, except for mating season. Geminis are extremely extroverted, and get their energy from being around others. They are often referred to as “social butterflies,” as they need friends to thrive.

These animals are intuitive

The deer is an intuitive animal that knows when there is danger. Geminis are also very intuitive, making them wonderful psycho-analysts, psychologists and psychiatrists. They pick up on their patients’ feelings, really listen to them, and can help!

2. Peregrine Falcon

These falcons are stunning birds that stand out. These are the reasons they are one of Gemini’s spirit animals: 

They are the fastest birds

When stooping or diving after prey, the peregrine falcon is the fastest bird in the sky. It often dives from heights over one kilometer, and can get up to 200 miles per hour. Its prey usually doesn’t know what hit them by the time they’re caught. Geminis are also fast – they move around quickly, and are the fastest thinkers!  

Peregrine falcons are dangerous 

They are dangerous birds, considering their sharp beak, talons and speed. Like these birds, Geminis can also be dangerous. Remember, they are represented by the twins. Geminis often act as if they have two split personalities, and one of them can be very nasty and mean!

These birds are very intelligent 

Just like peregrine falcons, who are marvelously intelligent, Geminis too are very intelligent. Since Mercury rules the mind, they often are one of the most intelligent of all the Zodiac signs. Many of them pass on knowledge, and end up as teachers!  

3. Miniature Schnauzer

The miniature schnauzer is a gorgeous dog that hails from Germany. These are the reasons it represents Gemini:

Miniature Schnauzers bark a lot

These dogs sure make a lot of noise! Similar to Geminis who can talk your head off, they love to express themselves through barking. You just need to feed them and give them love to calm down – similar to Geminis who calm down with a lot of affection.     

These dogs are very friendly

Miniature Schnauzers are extremely friendly and just want love. Geminis are also super friendly. In fact, they’re one of the easiest Zodiac signs to get along with, as they don’t like to upset others. They enjoy an environment that is social, where there are friendly vibes.

They are very anxious

These little dogs can become very anxious, especially when separated from their owners. Mercury rules Gemini, and represents the mind. Geminis can also be exceptionally anxious, nervous, and worry about things all the time. They literally cannot stop thinking for one minute of the day. 

4. Fox

Foxes are one of the most exotic looking animals of the canine species. There are several reasons they are one of Gemini’s spirit animal:

They are slender

These animals are usually quite slender, making them able to run and move around fast. Geminis are also usually quite slender people – just take a look at Johnny Depp and Natalie Portman, A-list actors with the typical body frame of Geminis. 

Foxes are sly and mischievous 

They are animals that can get really sly – especially when hungry! They will sneak into farms, dens and chicken pens late at night when no-one is watching. They’ll then kill what they need to eat, and sneak off with it to hide it, so no one can take it from them! 

These animals make many sounds

Foxes don’t just bark. They also growl, scream, yelp, bark and even laugh! They are very communicative – just like Geminis who find it hard to stop talking. You always know what a Gemini is thinking, as they always express themselves!  

5.  Spider

Most people either fear, love, or are in awe of these arachnids that are found in all different shapes and sizes all over the world. These are the reasons they’re one of Gemini’s spirit animals:

Spiders are connected to the alphabet

It is said in ancient mythology that spiders created the alphabet, by weaving letters into their webs. For this reason, many writers will often see spiders staring back at them from the corners of their ceilings, as they naturally attract them. Gemini rules the hands and writing, and many Geminis are writers, such as songwriters Bob Dylan and Kanye West.  

They jump and move quickly

Spiders are known to move extremely quickly, as they have eight legs. If you corner them, they usually run away very quickly, or jump, only attacking if their offspring is nearby. Geminis also move very quickly. They will move away from harm very swiftly. 

They come in a range of colors

These creepy crawlies come in a variety of amazing colors. Geminis rule trends, and often will change the color of their hair on a regular basis to look cool and trendy. You will always see them wearing the most fabulous clothes, just like famous Gemini fashion designers Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen.

Gemini Spirit Animals for You

Geminis are graceful, intelligent, fast-moving, and interesting people. It doesn’t matter whether you’re socializing with a deer, peregrine falcon, miniature schnauzer, fox, or spider; know that you’re with a special Zodiac sign, that will always stimulate your mind, keep you interested, and listen to anything you have to say!
