Gemini season kicks off on May 21st and will last until the June Solstice when the Sun enters Cancer.
Gemini is the third sign of the zodiac, and seeing as 2019 is a number 3 year in numerology, there is the chance for a lot of harmony and balance to take place during this season.
Gemini also rules over our thoughts, our mind, our creativity, and our ability to express ourselves. Gemini energy beckons us to write down our thoughts and feelings and to get clear on our truth.
How do we really feel about a situation? What truth have we been hiding from ourselves and the world?
Whenever the Sun enters Gemini, it is a time for all of us to connect with our inner voice and to determine where we need to speak up or perhaps back down.
It is a time for us to decide how we are going to act and if we need to spend the time to gather more information, be more understanding, or just let things be as they are.
Renowned astrologer, Dane Rudhyar says that the gift of Gemini is learning how to just allow things to happen in their own time and in their own way.
As an air sign, Gemini is very concerned with thoughts, feelings, facts, and figures. It wants to know the truth, it wants to have the data all laid out clear and simply in order to get to the bottom of things.
While this has its benefits, it can also cause this energy to get concentrated in the mind where it becomes cloudy, foggy, and prone to over-thinking.
Under Gemini Season, we all have to be mindful of not allowing ourselves to get lost in the clouds and in our thoughts, and to instead, bring ourselves back to the present moment as much as possible.
As Rudyar suggests, we can tap into the gift of Gemini energy when we go with the flow and allow things to happen in their own time and in their own way without forcing, rushing, researching, or plotting to make things happen.
Gemini also rules over the lungs, so getting still with the breath and making time to just breathe and relax into the flow of your life are all things that are supported under the energy of the season.
Under the Gemini Sun, we are also going to be beckoned to get creative and make things! Gemini not only rules over the lungs, but also our hands and arms, so we may feel the desire to get creative or fix things up around the home.
Journaling and writing down our thoughts and feelings is also highly favored under Gemini energy, so it is the perfect time to do a “brain dump” or to start writing that novel!
The symbol for Gemini is the Twins and many people believe that this is because the energy of this sign tends to be two-faced, but it is more that Gemini has the gift of being able to put themselves in the other person’s shoes.
Gemini loves “knowing”. They like to get all the facts and have the ability to gather information from many different points of view. They are gifted communicators and know the right things to say in order to get to the information they need.
While this can definitely be used in a manipulative way, it is Gemini’s ability to tap into both sides of the story and understand things from many points of view that make them such great storytellers.
If you work in publishing, journalism or love to write, hands down there is a strong presence of Gemini energy somewhere in your astrological chart!
The idea of the Twins also relates to speaking and listening. One Twin is the listener, the other is in charge of speaking, and is it through this that the Twins can develop a full and rounded picture of what is true.
We can all use this energy during Gemini season in order to reflect on where we need to speak up and ask questions, and where we need to stop, pause, and actually listen.
Think of a sticky situation in your life right now and ask yourself-
Do I need to sit back and just listen to the information or clues that have already been presented to me or do I need to ask more questions and gain more facts in order to resolve this situation?
Perhaps the answer is a bit of both, but getting clear and tuning in can be a powerful way to use this energy to your advantage.
On a deeper level, the Twins also symbolize the intelligence that resonates from the brain and the heart.
By balancing both of these tools we can also get a fuller, richer picture about where we stand and what path we should walk.
Just like you did before, take a moment to think about this same sticky situation in your life. Where can you bring more heart or intuitive based thinking? What are the facts showing me about this situation?
Our heart intelligence knows that everything is love and that forgiveness is always the path, however our brain intelligence is focused on protecting us, setting boundaries, and ensuring that we are taking the best action for our own wellbeing.
Again, finding balance between these two states and allowing yourself to find that natural rhythm and flow is what Gemini Season is here to instil in all of us.
Mercury is the natural ruler of Gemini, and this planet is going to be particularly strong under this energy. Mercury rules over our mind, our mental processes, our thinking, and communication.
It also rules over moving parts and technology, which is why these things can all go haywire when Mercury moves in retrograde.
When Mercury is strong, all of the things it rules over are strong, so feel free to use this energy in whatever way feels right for you and your life right now.
Gemini Season is a time where we can think freely, more openly, and expansively. This is a time where we can communicate our thoughts, and feelings with a sense of confidence and ease.
Once the Sun moves into watery Cancer Season, things are going to get choppy due to the presence of some very potent Eclipses, so enjoy this airy, thoughtful, and mind-stimulating Gemini Season.
