The Sun Enters Gemini
As the sun moves into Gemini (May 21, 2020 through June 20, 2020) and we enter this new season we tend to see a lot of endings take place. Graduations, school letting out for summer, colder weather and spring ending. We start to look toward our future and make exciting plans for the start of summer. Gemini is associated with the teenage stage of life, the twins (or dualities), and the lovers, which means everything tends to get looked at with a fresh perspective and planning those endings to get ready for new beginnings.
What is Gemini and what does this mean? Gemini, the 3rd of the 12 zodiac signs, is the mutable air sign. Mutable signs are the most flexible when it comes to change, endings, and letting go. Air signs are the social, intellectual, and doers of the zodiac. This means that Gemini is the sign of the thinkers and philosophers, they need hard hitting evidence before believing anything, but will most likely entertain the thought until they make their own opinions. Geminis are adaptable, easy going, open, understanding, outgoing, and intelligent. They always have a lot to say and want to share their thoughts and ideas with others. They love to move their bodies and seek out fun and enjoyable activities.
The low road of Gemini can be immature, gossipy, indecisive, unreliable, and unable to sit still or stay in one place for long. They can be flighty, forgetful and sometimes even hurtful with their words. It is common to feel restless during Gemini season and feel like we need lots of movement and intellectual stimulation.
Gemini is ruled by Mercury which is our communication and our mind. We also have a Mercury retrograde this month in the same sign of Gemini (May 29-June 22). During Mercury retrograde we notice our communication being more difficult and less clear. People and problems from our past are more likely to reappear and attempt to teach us lessons we feel like we may have already had to learn. Gemini being a duality of the twins gives us that indecisive energy which can manifest as feeling out of control, ungrounded, scattered, and generally more prone to distractions.
The combination of the sun and Mercury retrograde in Gemini makes this one of the most impulsively fun and social times of the year. As the weather is getting warmer, travel becomes easier and more attainable. People become more excited to attend events, go out into social situations, and meet new friends. The advice for Gemini season is to not take life so seriously and enjoy the little things. Ask your questions and focus on fun. Be careful during this time not to get too caught up in gossip or lose track of time. It is not a good time to sign contracts, start new relationships, have difficult conversations, or start a new job. This is, however, a great time for connecting with old friends and meeting new ones, planning your events and parties and taking on new hobbies.
