Gemini - Pathologically Unpunctual
A Gemini is rarely on time; and if they manage to arrive punctually, chances are they show up at the wrong time all together. Time has a habit of getting away from Gemini, or so it would seem, even when they are trying to be conscious, something always sparks their curiosity or stops them in their tracks. A Gemini is also rarely concerned with punctuality, leading their Virgo and Capricorn playmates to tear their hair out; they soon begin to learn Gemini will arrive ‘around’ a certain time rather than on the dot or earlier. As much or as little time as they have, it always seems to escape them - and they become known as the ‘late personality’. To Gemini, astrologers have described lateness as almost being pathological.
An airy nature means Gemini are rarely organized; this often leaves them in a nervous disarray and frenzy while they are trying to orient themselves. Gemini are renowned for their incredible ability to store knowledge and information, though the time something begins seems to get lost amongst the words. There is a natural scatteredness in these natives, and many can struggle to grasp the concepts of tangible reality; it becomes all to easy to get swept up in that book or begin talking to their friend and before they know it - they are late again. They also have a habit of ‘believing’ they have more time, or deluding themselves that everything will simply just work out. It can be hard for the Gemini to plan ahead, because it is almost impossible for them to plan who they are going to be that day - what outfit, what mode of transport, what accessories will today’s Gemini need? This can cause all too much chaos in the morning when a timely manner is required.
There is a natural lightness and playfulness to the Gemini that fails to grasp the seriousness of many situations - including the moments when time management is crucial. This can infuriate the more conservative types and cause their friends to lose reliability on them all together; their philosophy surrounding lateness is also relaxed, and their friends simply learn to accept it of them. Too many times a Gemini has missed an event or an important interview because of their failure to plan and manage their time and events. For Gemini that are unable to overcome this habit, it is recommended they learn to work from home or find a career in which they can work around their own schedule.
