Your mission with this Mercury retrograde period until October 2nd is to review the personal myth you inherited from your family and reassess how the story you tell shapes your ability to express yourself creatively. During Mercury retrograde, make an intention to slow down enough to appreciate the beauty within you and around you, and witness how it reverberates calm within your mind.

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.
