And what you should snack on while listening…
Turn up the charm and warm up those vocal cords, Gemini season is here! Here is your specially curated playlist to get in touch with the vibrant, chatty, witty, and curious season! Gemini, represented by the Twins, is the third of the 12 zodiac signs that ushers those of us in North America into the summertime. It’s no secret that Geminis sometimes get a bad rep, often being called two-faced or unreliable. Though these traits can exist, there are so many positives that make this sign a total blast! An adventurous, quick-witted, keen intellect, synergistic communication, and a desire to keep things interesting - when you’re with a Gemini, you’ll never be bored. To really get you into the Gemini mindset, we have some suggestions for when to listen, where to listen, and what snacks to enjoy so you can get the full Gemini experience.
Set the Scene
When: Gemini is an air sign, which means they tend to float and not always be completely grounded. For this reason, we don’t want to dictate exactly when to listen, but we do suggest using this as a getting-ready playlist. Whether it’s a brunch with friends or a night on the town, Gemini loves a social moment.
Where: Wherever you’re getting ready for a good time! Maybe hit up fellow good-time gals Sagittarius, Leo, or Pisces (if you can catch them in the right mood) so you can start the party early.
What (to eat): Gemini does not like to be bored so they're always on the go! To keep the energy up, we suggest a Vibrant Roasters Organic Cold Brew Coffee with a splash of our house-made Organic Brazil Nut Milk, our organic cold-pressed Anti Inflammatory Shot (gotta keep that immune system up!), followed up with a slice of Gemini Cake
Glamorous Gemini Playlist
Let’s Go Crazy by Prince: We absolutely had to open with the Gemini icon, Prince. One of the most influential musicians of our time, Prince exemplified Gemini duality. He had a wild performance style but a calm and measured public persona, he also loved to blend the masculine and the feminine. No one ever knew exactly what to expect from Prince, and that’s how he liked it.
Say Something by Kylie Minogue: Kylie, a Gemini herself, is widely considered one of the biggest pop stars in the world, though we don’t always pay her the attention she’s due in the states. “Say Something” is all about communication and conversation, what could be more Gemini than that?
Sister Ray by Foxes: Geminis are often referenced in pop music, but rarely are they the song's main character. “Sister Ray” by Foxes not only features Gemini but also captures the feeling of Gemini. Light, airy, magical, and charming, this song truly does Gemini justice.
New Attitude by Patti LaBelle: We couldn’t pass up this perfect opportunity to talk about charismatic Gemini and Philadelphia native, Patti LaBelle. With the opening lines “Running hot, running cold”, “New Attitude” could be considered a Gemini anthem, highlighting the dynamic, spontaneous, emotions of the Twins.
Everything is Everything by Ms. Lauryn Hill: Ruled by Mercury (the planet of communication), Geminis are known for being intelligent, original, keen communicators, and wordsmiths. It makes sense that Ms. Hill, frequently considered one of the greatest rappers of all time, is a Gemini herself. Her way with words is unparalleled and she is credited with popularizing Melodic Rap, a style that blends both singing and rapping (there’s that duality again!), which has influenced countless contemporary artists including Beyoncé, Drake, and Nicki Minaj.
