Gemini Season blows into town, bringing it's lively energy into our lives as we emerge from Taurus season where we turned inward during Mercury Retrograde and focused on our inner sanctuaries. Gemini helps us step up and step out to reconnect with our social circles and the world around us.
Gemini Season May 21 - June 20
Symbol: The Twins
Planetary Ruler: Mercury
Hello there, my charming and witty friend! Can you feel the electric energy in the air? That's because Gemini season is here, and it's time to socialize, network, and show off your sparkling personality.
Gemini's mental agility and curiosity are beautiful things; during this season, you can use that mercurial energy to your advantage. Strike up fascinating conversations with strangers, research the difference between the sensation of weightlessness in space and while scuba diving, or ask ChatGPT for instructions on making the perfect creme brûlée.
Just be mindful not to get pulled in too many directions at once. The symbol of Gemini, the twins, represents the duality of opposing sides and often multiple interests. While exploring different things is great, remember to stay focused on what's important. Otherwise, you might find yourself in one moment having a fascinating conversation with friends and the next completely bored and onto something new.
Try incorporating meditation or other mindfulness practices into your routine to maintain your focus. You can make the most of this effervescent and exciting time of year with a little balance and intention. So embrace your inner Gemini, and let your curiosity lead the way!
