It’s Gemini time! (Party time!)
Today 5/20 the Sun leaves slow, steady and stable Taurus and moves into fun, creative and stimulating Gemini! Energy feels high right now under the influence of this sign, and we are more ready to get out there and have some lighthearted fun. *Special shout-out to my brother Joe who turns 40 today! He’s a double Gemini, Sun and Moon- Yikes! Just kidding about the yikes, well, kind of, HA! He’s one of my favorite people and I wish him the most wonderful day and year ahead <3
Gemini energy is vivacious. Geminis are smart, Geminis are witty, Geminis are savvy and convincing- they are fun and typically the life of the party! Many sales people and comedians fall under this sign.
They are great conversationalists as they are ruled by the planet Mercury which is the planet of communication.
Gemini falls under the element of Air- meaning that they are quite intellectual and if you are trying to seduce a Gemini, then you need to seduce their mind first!
Some people mistake Gemini for being flighty, but they are not, it’s just that they are young at heart and have a very restless spirit. Gemini does not stay in one place for very long! They are quite chatty and love to make people laugh-at a party, that man or women with a circle around them slapping their knees in hysterics? They are likely a Gemini!
The zodiac symbol for this sign is that of the twins. Two. It is said that Geminis can appear to have a ‘split’ personality. While this is true, it is not necessarily a bad thing. They can’t help it after all!
*If your moon or rising sign fall in Gemini, you will embody a lot of these traits as well. You can obtain your placements for free by going to Astro.com. If you would like to go more in depth about your chart, placements, planets and how they shape you, schedule a session. Also important to note that not all Geminis will fit the description of a true Gemini. The whole birth chart needs to be taken into account, along with the planetary aspects and angles*.
Gemini is what we consider a mutable sign in astrology, meaning,they pretty much go with the flow at all times, and can appear non-phased when things go awry. (Other mutable signs are Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces).
Just when you think you have a Gemini figured out, they switch it up leaving you wondering if they are a magician! Again, they cannot help this and the key to truly understanding the Gemini (or Geminis) in your life is to understand that they are easy going and they tend to change who they are from one day to the next! Although they love to be of assistance to others, on the negative side Gemini can talk out of both sides of their face, promising much then delivering little. While this is not typically done out of malice, it can be one of the Gemini downfalls.
The mind of the Air Sign Gemini is always going, restless energy. Sports are a great outlet for all of that energy! *It has also been proven by studies done that a lot of ADHD childhood cases fall under this sign more than any other sign! So if you have a strongly influenced Gemini child, take comfort in the fact that they are super intelligent and because of all of that mental energy, their focus is often scattered*.
Gemini’s are masters at having two things going at once, and in fact, function better when there is a lot of variety! Boredom of any kind is the kiss of death to this sign!
In the Tarot, Gemini rules card number XI (6) – The Lovers
This card portrays Adam & Eve, the true lovers. Eve was created from Adam’s rib after all- talk about fated and feeling connected ! The number ‘6’ is the number of harmony, soul contracts, partnerships. It’s no wonder it rules the ‘Lovers” card in the tarot, and that this card is represented by Gemini (the twins), as well! Tarot, astrology and numerology- see how they are all connected?
As much as the Lovers is representative of what else- love- it is just as much about choice. Sure , that puppy staring at you through the glass window is adorable, and you really want to take him home. But once you take him home, you have to walk him, bathe him, feed him-basically, invest in him. You may realllly want that puppy, but are you psychologically and psychically ready for it? The Lovers card is much like this. Adam & Eve chose to eat the forbidden fruit- forever altering their life path.
Take the example of a male or female of interest you meet. You know and sense on a soul level (6) (the number of soulmate connections) that this person has the potential to change your life in the best way possible. You know that if you leave them behind you will definitely regret it, yet if you take them with you, your life path is altered forever. What do you do? This is the Lovers card. So yes, it’s love but with a choice attached. Soul, spirit, sixth sense. That’s all wrapped up in the energy of this card.
Over the next month as we are under the Gemini influence, expect to feel ‘spellbound’ by someone or some-thing! You may meet a person that completely throws you for a loop, or something unexpected may come to you (with the potential for something great, but it will require you to make some major changes). This will require you to make a choice. Do you move forward into the unknown with hope and possibility? Or do you stay rooted in your comfort zone? Neither way brings a guarantee, remember that! Also remember to get out and have some fun! The way this energy has been lately, it’s way too easy to be a homebody (well, at least for me)!
Also, we have a high- energy new moon in Gemini coming up at the end of this week! If you are ultra sensitive and have Gemini placements in your birth chart, you are likely already feeling the energetic build up! More about that later on…..
Have a great weekend and stay well!
