Let’s talk fatigue, wearing out and wearing thin, who is the most exhausting sign in the zodiac?
All signs can cause burnout to themselves and others; the impulsive jock energy of Aries can be physically taxing, Cancers with their moon moods and easy tears can be emotionally draining, Scorpio’s supicious nature Taurean rigidity makes them tiresome but ultimately it is the quicksilver mind of a Gemini that exhausts above and beyond all others.
In a turn of life imitating art I am utterly exhausted as I write this and consequently, fresh off back to back conversations with Gemini risings. The people of the twin can talk, folks and talk you right into needing a lie down to properly recover from their inspired if incessant energy.

Ruled by messenger planet Mercury, Gemini represents both the mind and the mouth and neither are prone to pause.

In kind, Geminis often have a hard time unplugging from the communicable world or stopping themselves from over sharing or out right provoking; looking at you Donald Trump and Ye.
Astrology 101: Your guide to the stars
Hyper verbal and built for speed, There’s an urgency to Gemini, a press to share and a drive to learn. Gemini is duality made manifest and the twin of life is death.
Thusly, the specter of mortality is omnipresent in the Gemini psyche, imbuing them with a restless (read: exhausting) vitality. Their impatient impulse is to read, speak, consume, commune and collect as much as they can. Even when they cease to speak, you can hear the faint humming of the hive of their minds.
Their lightning-like processing smells of lemons, racetracks, pinballs and caramelized amphetamines. Because of this a Gemini never gently drifts off to sleep but rather crashes/collapses under the weight of their own mental expenditure.
