Celebrity Psychic Medium, Chris Riley says “Geminis, Leos and Scorpios make the best creators and influencers because they are the most passionate and dynamic of the Zodiac signs. These individuals have a deep desire to expand their social circles and their innate personality traits enable them to excel in the areas that inspire them most. This is often in the form of artistic direction and influencing on social media platforms. 

“Geminis are naturally playful and intellectually curious. They constantly juggle a variety of passions, hobbies, careers and friendship groups and are known as the social butterflies of the zodiac. Geminis are the quick-witted twins and can talk to anyone about anything, something which shines through as influencers. Individuals with the Gemini zodiac sign flourish when they are buzzing between happy hours, dinner parties, and dance floors and of course posting on social media.”

Geminis are well known for juggling passions and friendships, a trait that has helped James become so well known within the industry.”
