Gemini is the trickster of the Zodiac, always keeping people on their toes with a ruse or two hidden up their sleeves. They often get pegged as being “two-faced” but in actuality, Geminis are simply experts at reading the energy of the room and matching it.
Of course, with their brilliant wit and unmistakable charm they can also turn a bad vibe into a roaring good time. Let’s take a look at 12 Gemini celebrities who embody all things Gemini so we can get a closer look at this curious air sign.
Often harkened as the queen of rock and roll, Stevie Nicks garnered fame in the 70’s with the band Fleetwood Mac and later for her solo career. Gemini is an air sign, and we can see the qualities of her Gemini sunshine in both her breathy yet gruff voice as well as her notably witchy fashion. Nicks has long since been known for her preference for scarves and shawls, usually adorning both herself and her mics in flowing fabrics.
Professionally known as 2Pac, Tupac Shakur is widely recognized as one of the most successful and influential rap artists of all time. As a mercurial, intelligent Gemini sun Tupac always wrote about what he knew: the issues that plague the lower class and minorities of the inner city. Tupac used the mercurial tools of words and music for spreading awareness about social inequities, sparking tough conversations, and inspiring generations of rappers to come.
The Notorious B.I.G
The East Coast-West Coast rap rivalry was a focal point in the 90’s and the two main players were Tupac and Biggie, AKA The Notorious B.I.G. Their lives and careers were tragically cut short (just 6 months apart from one another), but it’s no surprise that these two Gemini suns were the masters of their craft. If there’s one sign that can do magic with words it’s Gemini, and the legacy left by these two giants is a testament to that trait.
Arguably the most famous starlet from the Golden Era of film, Marilyn Monroe is a perfect example of the duality of Gemini. She grew to tremendous fame playing the role of the “dumb blonde” in the 50’s but in her personal life she was as curious as any Gemini. Though her roles were centered on seduction and her sexual appeal, she often had her nose tucked away into a book when she was on set.

Seeing as Gemini moons are known for overanalyzing their feelings, it comes as no surprise that the founder of psychoanalysis has one. While certainly some of his theories are a bit on the questionable side, he did give birth to modern talk therapy, and peeking into the minds and hearts of others through conversation is where this moon sign shines.
Known for his short stories and novels, Franz Kafka creates a shining example of a Gemini moon because of his detailed, agonizing, yet humorous writing style-Gemini’s being known for their deep understanding of both love and pain. His works often speak to isolation and anxiety, but he presents these topics in an absurdist and surrealist way, highlighting Gemini’s wit even when speaking on the struggles of human life.
Florence Welch has often stated that Stevie Nicks has been both a musical and stylistic influence on her career. This isn’t surprising because it’s common for us to be drawn to people who’s sun sign is our moon sign. Welch brings the same breathy yet gritty quality to her songs which read like poetry, and, like a true Gemini, she’s often seen on stage barefoot in flowing fabrics.
The actress best known for her monotone voice and dry delivery of dark (sometimes goofy) jokes, Aubrey Plaza is certainly a standout Gemini moon. Air moons tend to think through their emotions as opposed to diving deeply into them, so they aren’t the “wear your heart on your sleeve type” which gives Plaza an edge and an unforgettable performance style.
Lady GaGa has gained fame as well as infamy for her shocking outfits. She’s been seen on the red carpet in everything from a Kermit the Frog dress to a meat dress, she’s been covered in fake blood and even walked down the runway in an egg. A Gemini rising is known for never sticking to one style and instead keeps everyone guessing about what look they’ll turn next.
As a Gemini rising, Amy Winehouse has always had more to show than what you could see with your eyes. Gemini’s have trickster energy and when you look at Amy’s small frame and almost comically big hair and eyeliner, you wouldn’t have guessed that she could produce such powerful vocals. Despite appearances, Winehouse will always be known for her powerhouse blues and jazz vocals.
It’s no shock that the world’s most famous drag queen happens to be a Gemini rising since Gemini is known for its duality. With his show, RuPaul’s Drag Race, RuPaul put drag as a performance art style into the public in a way it had never been done before. Drag is such a beautiful representation of what it means to be a dualistic Gemini rising, different parts of ourselves bring out different kinds of energy!
Every Gemini is a jack of all trades and master of none, but Gemini rising Jackie Chan learned to master more than a few! He’s one of the most famous action stars of all time not only because of his skill in martial arts and scene-stealing acrobatics (which he does himself!) but also for his sense of humor and charm. It takes a lot to become a master of any martial art, but only a Gemini rising can do it with a well-timed joke on top of it all.
