GeminiMay 21 - June 20
Skymates, in honor of retrograde and eclipse season, KTZ is taking a break from offering daily scopes. We’re resting, regenerating, and re-imagining. That’s what retrograde and eclipse season is all about, and as astrologers, it’s important that we practice what we preach. We’ll still share weekly/monthly scopes with you during this break. Subscribe to KTZ’s email newsletter (KnowTheZodiac.com/newsletter) to know when daily scopes will be back. You can also order my book, Signs & Skymates, as well as KTZ’s digital products on our site to deepen your astro knowledge. Remember: you are your own astrologer. KTZ astrologers Adela, Nisha, and myself are here as guides, but the answers have always existed within you. Thanks for the love and support.

Key themes: Exploring life through new lenses, deepening your journey, emotional healing and safe space, reciprocity
Gemini, you’ll probably look back on September as being one of the lighter months of the year, as an abundance of nourishing energy is activated in your chart. We still have a plethora of retrogrades but a wave of cosmic empowerment is going to leave you feeling more than equipped to handle all that life throws at you.
On September 3rd Venus (planet of love, beauty and relationships) ends its retrograde in Leo, catalyzing a collective sigh of belief – and for you, a much calmer mind. This transit has been activating your sector of mental processing, and therefore likely shining a spotlight on your mental health. If your mind suddenly feels more spacious, lean into it and enjoy. This will be a time to cultivate deep presence, and a sense of being that emanates from the heart, rather than the head. Intentionally minimizing your social media and tech usage, as well as allowing more space between tasks, plus staying hydrated, will help here too.
The very next day (Sep 4th), Jupiter begins its retrograde through the sign of Taurus. This potent transit will activate your sector of spirituality and connection, so it’s a big one! Your planetary ruler (Mercury) continues its retrograde through Virgo until the 15th, inviting you to shine a spotlight on your thought processes and patterns. There’s a focus on how you mentally perceive the world, a lens which is expanding. Jupiter retrograde suggests a similar journey, yet this time it’s more about how you experience the world. As this transit takes us all the way until the last day of the year, the universe invites you to dive into new and exciting places, connections, environments and opportunities; which deepen your personal sense of meaning, and love for life. This can be quite a radical and magical chapter, Gemini. Think “leap of faith” energy.
There’s a deep self-focus theme coming through this month for you, highlighted once again by the Virgo New Moon on Sep 14. This activates your sector of emotional healing, and like all things Virgo, has a practical flavor to it. You’re being invited to look at the ways that you can provide yourself with safe containers to express, release and explore your feelings. Is your current lifestyle granting you time with your inner world? How’s your nervous system doing? Who are the ones that you can lean on and share with, without being judged? Mercury goes direct the very next day, so you’ll likely receive a wave of clarity or full circle moments around this time Gemini, enjoy.
With the Sun entering Libra (September 23), and our consequent equinox, your sector of play, romance and self-expression is activated. This initiates a four week window flavored by a higher degree of lightness and ease. Tune into your needs; spiritually, mentally and body-wise, to see how you can best nurture yourself while you have so much capacity for it. While you have a highly flexible nature, Virgo season has just reminded us that consistency can be our friend.
Anything that gets in the way of that, can be released on Sep 29, with our Full Moon in Aries. This one activates your sector of community and invites you to look at whether a balance is being met between your needs as an individual, and your relationships. Perhaps it’s a time to open yourself up to receiving more. Or, maybe if you’re honest with yourself, you’ve been overextending. Whatever the case may be, Full Moons are wonderful portals for letting go.
Ruling Planet: Mercury, the Planet of Communication
Where You’ll Find Them: Launching a podcast, couch-surfing around the world, or learning how to code
What They Avoid: Overly emotional situations, routines, clingy people
Gemini is the third sign of the zodiac — the sign of the Twins. When you’re talking about a Gemini, you’re in essence talking about two (or more) people, merged in one. Gemini is all about duality and multiplicity, which is why they’re like a chameleon, always changing. This can be both frustrating and fascinating to outsiders, but to Gemini, it’s all they’ve ever known. It’s who they are. Gemini is ruled by Mercury, making them social butterflies and eternally curious students who view the world as their classroom. Gemini loves to read, talk, write and communicate in as many ways as possible, with a huge variety of people and cultures. Not all Geminis are outspoken, but they all have a constant stream of thoughts running through their minds.
For that reason, Gemini can be extremely restless, emotionally, intellectually and physically. It’s important for Gemini to have a creative and physical outlet for their outpour of thoughts and ideas. It can be a challenge for Gemini to stick to one profession or job — they tend to have more than one job at once or switch into new jobs pretty frequently. That’s because Gemini is the jack-of-all-trades who tends to be good at everything they try. Gemini’s mission is to stick with something long enough to be better than just “good” at it. Their free-spirited nature can make them very hard to tie down, and Geminis seek freedom and space to breathe and create above all else.
As friends, Gemini is the type of person who will introduce you to new ways of life and take you to places you’ve never been before. Gemini is very open to meeting new people, and this can sometimes make them appear to be superficial or two-faced because they flitter like a butterfly from one social group to another. But for Gemini, variety is the spice of life, and boredom is their ultimate fear. Still, even if Gemini is quite popular, they still can be selective when it comes to whom they view as their best friends. There is an introspective and introverted side to Gemini that they fiercely protect.
Friendship is often Geminis strongest suit, so when it comes to romance and relationships, it takes more effort on their end. That’s because Geminis aren’t naturally comfortable with vulnerability, emotions or sensitivity. Geminis can be known for being the flirts of the zodiac, playing the field when they’re single (and sometimes even when coupled), and shying away from commitment. But keep in mind that Gemini is the sign of The Twins, meaning that there’s another side to them that’s not frequently talked about by astrologers. Deep down, Gemini seeks to meet their twin flame and soulmate — their other half. That’s why Geminis may flutter around during the earlier parts of their dating life. But once a Gemini falls in love, they do have the ability to remain committed, as long as they don’t feel like they’re being played or taken for granted. With Gemini you never know for sure what you’re going to get, but it’s all part of their charm.
