Gemini is a complex zodiac sign and so is its spirit animal. Exploring the meaning and the symbolism of Gemini’s spirit animal is a great way to work with its energy but also to get to know ourselves a little bit deeper, a little bit better. Let’s get started.
What is Gemini’s spirit animal?
Those born under the sign of Gemini are fortunate to have the fox as their spirit animal. This is because they are known to be curious and eager to venture into new places. Geminis are also known to be intriguing creatures, prone to not showing affection.
They are able to do more things than they are thinking at the same time and they love puzzles and intelligence games. They are eloquent, which often helps them mask their defects and shortcomings. Geminis love oases of peace and rest and fresh air, and their ailments are generally of nervous and mental origin.
One of the peculiarities of Geminis is the following: when they are dominated by an idea, they immediately go to work to put it into practice, without reflecting on the consequences that their actions may have or on their morality. For example, if a Gemini likes an object, he can observe and desire it until he goes to buy it, even if he has little money, or, in the worst case, he might even steal it.
Among the negative characteristics of the sign, there is that the individual does not distinguish what is good and what is bad, therefore it could be said that the individual is “amoral”. In the sentimental sphere, they are not very emotional, they prefer flirting to a lasting bond.
If you are a Gemini, you are a double sign and like all double signs, you have your contradictions and your mood swings, which are not always easy to understand for those around you. You are a born provocateur, you like to tease your partner with ironic or pungent jokes just for the sake of seeing his reactions; sometimes you put on real performances, your prankster soul and irreverence will accompany you until a late age.
Geminis have great charm, though they are susceptible and easily irritable, but they do not know how to hold a grudge and are not touchy. They have a great ability to adapt to places and people, which should not be understood as a lack of personality, but as a real availability towards the situations that are created.
A major flaw in the sign is a presumption, often a consequence of an intellect that is truly out of the ordinary. The intuition in this sign is marked, the sensitivity extremely acute, and so also is the nervousness.
The symbolism of this spirit animal explained
The fox, more than any other animal, symbolizes shrewdness and knowing how to move even in situations and environments considered by others to be dangerous. This animal rarely acts with bad intentions, it is rather moved by the desire to follow its own interest, without worrying about others, according to Native American beliefs.
However, these people also see the fox as a symbol of wisdom. It must be admitted that the symbolism of the fox cannot be reduced to its intelligent and aware nature.
That would mean diminishing the teaching that this animal can provide us. We have before us an animal capable of getting out of trouble with disarming ease. It ventures into unknown places and makes the night an ally that guarantees it can act undisturbed.
It is full of vitality and represents sexuality and seduction. He is skilled and shrewd; according to some, he is also a symbol of luck. We can learn a lot if we stopped to observe the fox’s behavior.
According to Japanese, Chinese, Indian, and North American legends, the fox has the power to change its appearance. Here come the legends and assumptions that foxes can turn into anything they want. Foxes are transformed mainly into women, so as to seduce and deceive the poor passers-by.
How to work with the energy of Gemini’s spirit animal?
- Don’t let yourself be caught off guard and learn to pick up on the signals of your enemy’s next move.
- Learn to avoid problems and solve them more lightly, without worrying about them beforehand.
- Hone your intellect; culture will often prove to be the best weapon at your disposal.

- Use a fox as a lucky charm or as a reminder that you have what you need to manage the many challenges life shows you. You just have to unveil your abilities.
Gemini is all about duality and embracing all sides of your soul. This can be a challenge but it’s necessary to really know yourself, a mandatory step to get in tune with others, and to know what you truly want.
