KnowGemini Scope July 4 – 5

Gemini, reconnect with those that feel like family. The Moon is still in Virgo, inviting us to connect with our natural rhythms until Tuesday night when it shifts into Libra, bringing awareness to what it means to be in relationship with ourselves and the world around us. A shift in energy occurs on Tuesday, when Mars leaves its home sign and enters the slow moving, pleasure seeking sign of Taurus until August 20th. Cultivate your creativity. You don’t have to do only one thing, and you don’t have to do things only one way. Don’t get caught up in only doing the things that have given you success in the past. True success will come from exploring and connecting to what’s new and fun for you. Mercury also leaves its home sign to enter nurturing, safety seeking Cancer until July 19th. Activating communication, and bringing more movement and engagement into your resources and sense of self-worth.


KnowGemini June ’22 Scope

Key Themes: healing words, “me” VS “you”, heart nourishment, meaningful connection

Last month ended with a powerful New Moon in your sign which set the tone for the next 30 days. Gemini, the month of June invites you to use your thoughts and words for heart healing.

Your ruling planet Mercury has been transiting in earthy Taurus since May 22nd, compelling you to quiet the outside noise and connect to your inner resources. On June 3rd, the Planet of Communication stations direct where it will activate your sector of spirituality until June 13th; at this point, Mercury re-enters Gemini and highlights your sector of personality. Gemini, nobody can see the world through your eyes; it’s time to channel your sense of personal identity with your words to help people see who you are. Even though Mercury, the Cosmic Messenger, is initiating its forward journey, be mindful of a shadow period of about 10 days. Take the essential lessons from Mercury retrograde with you as the circuits of information gradually accelerate, like a train leaving a station for another trip.

On June 4th, Saturn, the Planet of Challenge, will begin a 6-months retrograde period in Aquarius until October 28th. Saturn retrograde highlights Gemini’s sector of higher education and philosophy. As Saturn’s functions of structure and responsibility turn inwards, this transit invites you to re-connect to your Inner Authority and how it shapes your worldview.

As the month of June peaks, so does the lunar cycle. The Full Moon in Sagittarius strikes at 7:52am on June 14th illuminating Gemini’s sector of relationships. Themes that began last Fall involving your beliefs in partnership come full circle on this Full Moon. This Sag Full Moon also forms a challenging square to Neptune, the Planet of Spirituality, which compels you to balance out any “me” VS “we” dichotomy with the language of the heart. Remember that not everyone is as naturally open-minded as you are and not everyone has the same beliefs. Your mission with this Full Moon is to place your thoughts and words through a healing filter of compassion.

On June 21st, the Sun leaves your sign to enter nurturing Cancer. Happy Summer Solstice if you live in the Northern Hemisphere! As Cancer season activates your sector of security and self-esteem, it compels you to drop your focus into your world of feelings and that which nourishes the foundation of your being. Venus, the planet of Love and Connection, enters your sign on June 22nd activating your sector of personality. Venus in Gemini invites you to initiate into a renewed sense of self and express yourself with style until July 17th.

The month ends with a wave as the New Moon in Cancer strikes on June 28th at 10:52pm where it forms a challenging square to Jupiter in Aries. Your mission with this New Moon is to connect with the part of you that knows how to take care of yourself. While you are out in the world socializing and planning your future, the Cancer New Moon reminds you to account for your inner needs.

About Gemini

Element: Air

Mode: Mutable

Ruling Planet: Mercury, the Planet of Communication

Where Youll 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 youre talking about a Gemini, youre 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, its all theyve ever known. Its 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. Its 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. Thats because Gemini is the jack-of-all-trades who tends to be good at everything they try. Geminis mission is to stick with something long enough to be better than just goodat 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 youve 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. Thats because Geminis arent naturally comfortable with vulnerability, emotions or sensitivity. Geminis can be known for being the flirts of the zodiac, playing the field when theyre 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 theres another side to them thats not frequently talked about by astrologers. Deep down, Gemini seeks to meet their twin flame and soulmate their other half. Thats 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 dont feel like theyre being played or taken for granted. With Gemini you never know for sure what youre going to get, but its all part of their charm.
