When it comes to understanding ourselves and how we move through the world, it can be useful to look at our zodiac signs. They can tell us a lot about how we communicate, who we’re compatible with, and what we prioritize throughout our life. Take Gemini, for example. Gemini is an air sign, which means they’re drawn to communication, creativity, versatility, and action. Gemini is represented by the symbol of the Twins, which exemplifies their multifaceted interest in learning, doing, and engaging with everything around them. (Plus, if you fall under this Mercury-ruled sign, you probably wish you could clone yourself sometimes — that way, you could do it all.) Below are 22 Gemini celebrities — you’re sure to recognize at least a few names on this list!
1. Zoe Saldana (June 19)
