From May 20-June 21, the sun flies into Gemini—the twins, the lovers, the dual nature of us all. As our mutable air sign, Gemini can go with the flow, becoming more adaptable and morphing perspectives more quickly. We can tap into the keen intellect and curiosity of our double-bodied sign and make informed decisions and take swift action toward realizing our goals + intentions.
This Gemini season starts with Mercury—its ruling planet—retrograde in its sign. Our fastest moving planet then backtracks through Taurus on the 22nd, before stationing direct on June 3. As the social butterfly of the zodiac, this might bring up some challenges around our communication and travel plans, but if we take our time, double check our docs, and are mindful of our words, we can make this a deeply healing and exciting moment in the season. Some days we might even find a little more clarity in our musings and meanderings! Gemini is naturally super-curious, so can you get just as curious with your inner world, as you are with the world around you?
Here are some tools to help you align with the season:
- Lemon Balm
- Make an altar to Mercury for ease in communication, travel and technology (especially given our retrograde moment here)
- Tap into your creativity with writing, music, art, a new book or learning a new skill
- Do a mirror meditation or mantra practice
- Work with the Lovers or Magician tarot/archetypes
The swift, positive energies of Gemini season can help us through our interactions, and even gain momentum in our goals and greater purpose when it comes to our work. When working with the tarot archetypes, Gemini connects mostly with the Lovers, giving us access to our own dual nature, as well as the energy which we connect and share with others. The Magician is associated with the planet Mercury (ruler of both Gemini and Virgo) which reminds us of the tools we already have within us, allowing us to tap into all the elements to help us realize our fullest potential.
The season will close out just after our Full Super Moon in Sagittarius, letting light shine even brighter on our social dynamics and reveling in the positive Jupiter-ruled energy of Gemini’s sister sign. This full moon will be a lighthearted release, inviting us to enjoy all life has to offer in our social lives, travel plans and even our intellectual pursuits! Have some fun with it ;)
Happy Gemini Season, sweet friends.
