GeminiMay 21 - June 20
Gemini your ruler (Mercury) is opposing Mars, who is currently transiting your sign. This has the potential to cause some misunderstanding or glitches in communication. If you find yourself jumping to conclusions one way or the other, slow things down and create some space. When in doubt, ask for clarification. We’re in Sagittarius season which is your opposite sign, so this month may not feel as intuitive as usual for you. The cool thing is, you can certainly use it as an opportunity to learn and grow immensely. When we tap into the energy of our opposite signs, we can bring ourselves into balance in whole ways. Why not make this your exercise for the month?

Key Themes: somatic healing, health, relationships, freedom, destiny
Gemini, the month begins in the midst of Eclipse season and, with the recent Solar Eclipse in Scorpio, what insights revealed themselves in matters of health and wellness? If you haven’t already done so, it’s time to get honest about how your daily habits are supporting your growth or hindering it. Gemini, what is needed for you to be at your best on a mind-body-soul level in the next 6 months? Write down your reflections and visualize them as if they were already your reality. As this anonymous quote highlights, “Don’t fill your head with worries, there won’t be space for anything else”, so focus your brilliant mind on how these intentions feel in your body and soul.
By the Full Moon Total Lunar Eclipse in sensual Taurus on November 8th at 6:02am, along with Mars retrograde in Gemini, your energy may be totally depleted, Gemini. Since this Lunar Eclipse conjoins with Uranus, the planet of Awakening, in your sector of spirituality and healing, you may receive surprising insights about your body’s wisdom, including the traumas and repressed emotions you’ve been holding onto somatically. This Lunar Eclipse also makes a square to reality-striking Saturn, challenging you to take responsibility for your healing process. Gemini, this is a good time to engage in ceremony and to breathe, make music, scream, intuitively dance, and shake it out. Once the sand has settled, consider, how does your body tell you that you need to withdraw, slow down, and be taken care of? Now, remember this quote from philosopher Lao Tzu: “Nature doesn’t hurry, yet it is accomplished.”
On November 16th, Venus emerges out of intense Scorpio into exuberant Sagittarius, your opposing sign, where it will bring warmth to your sector of relationships until December 9th. With the planet of Love & Connection in the seeker of the Zodiac, you may be in the mood to take a more direct approach to romantic relationships with exciting shared experiences (pssst: use your charm and flirt a little – or a lot!). With Venus in Sagittarius, consider: Who sets your heart on fire, uplifts your ideals, and makes your belly ache from laughing so hard? As your ruling planet Mercury enters optimistic Sagittarius on November 17th through December 6th, open your mind to seeing the bigger picture of your one-to-one partnerships and how they bring meaning to your life.
These themes become highlighted as the Sun enters adventurous Sagittarius on November 22nd through December 21st. Welcome to Sagittarius season, Gemini! As the Sagittarius Sun spotlights your sector of relationships, you might understand why it’s so important to fill your cup: So you can generously exchange energy with the people you love and want to connect with, Gemini!
The next day on November 23rd, the Sagittarius Sun merges with luna, initiating a New Moon in your sector of relationships at 5:57pm, which provides an opportunity to refresh and expand through personal partnerships. With this New Moon, Gemini, what does freedom mean and look like for you in the context of relationships? Allow these answers to inspire your intention for this lunar cycle and, get ready, as next month’s Full Moon is in your sign.
Moments after the New Moon, Jupiter stations direct in go-with-the-flow Pisces in your sector of career and reputation. Gemini, think back to how much you’ve expanded in this area of life since the Spring and what you’ve learned over the past 12 years on this level. Jupiter in Pisces is here to remind you that you are so much more than your titles, status, education, and accomplishments. How would you approach your “destiny” if you knew, in your heart, that you are a conduit for sacred energy to flow through, Gemini? Now, let go of any extra baggage you no longer need to carry.

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.
