What does the Gemini symbol mean in astrology?
The Gemini is ruled by the dual symbol of the Twins. This symbol fits the Gemini perfectly as they are considered to be an extremely adaptable bunch. In fact, Geminis are so versatile that they can almost come off as being two completely different personalities.
The Twins symbol is also strongly tied to a Gemini’s communication skills. The exchange of words and new, fresh ideas is symbolized by the duality of this sign’s nature. The Gemini’s desire for human interaction and knowledgeable discussions where thoughts are passed around is unmatched in the zodiac.

With all this being said, there is no better zodiac compatibility for the Geminithan with a Libra. The Libra is also an Air sign, meaning it hits all of a Gemini’s sweet spots and checks all their relationship requirement boxes.
These two Air signs will make sure that their relationship is always kept alive and changing. Neither sign will ever be afraid to try new things, whether out on a date or during more private times when they’re alone. They will constantly take turns sweeping each other off their feet and won’t tire of finding new ways to surprise their partner and keep the spark going strong.
