Love them or hate them, you're in for a ride this season.
Gemini Season (May 21-June 21) is officially in full-swing. Love them or hate them, Geminis are often to thank for turning a boring situation into an unforgettable one. After the calm of Taurus season, now is the time to re-energize your mind, enjoy some fresh air, and harness every new idea you have.
If you know anything about astrology, you probably know that Geminis get a bad rap for being two-faced, gossipy, and downright dramatic. While there is some truth to these characteristics, there's also a flip-side. The two-faced stereotype stems from their ability to adapt to various social settings. Their tendency to gossip is the result of a desire to stay up-to-date with current events, whether that's drama within the friend group or Trump's latest bizarre tweet.
Gemini energy is bright, social, intellectual, and untethered to the material. As air signs, Geminis tend to jump from one idea to the next often without waiting for the rest of the world to catch up. Sometimes this results in unfinished tasks and uncrossed-off to-do lists, but every once in awhile it leads to groundbreaking ideas, art, and conversation. Gemini is ruled by Mercury, the planet of communication, meaning this air sign energy often brings lively social interactions and a trail of witty remarks.
Tips for taking advantage of the season's energy:
Speak your mind. Geminis are known for witty banter and strong opinions. This season, don't be afraid to voice your thoughts—even if they seem controversial. You never know when you might write something spectacular or spark a breezy conversation at a party to make a few new friends.
Get out on the town. You might feel yourself craving extra social interaction over the next few weeks. See this as an opportunity to explore local events, try new restaurants, and enjoy nights out with friends to unleash your inner social butterfly.
Nourish your brain. Books, podcasts, workshops, and online tutorials are easy ways to keep learning in true Gemini fashion. It's never too late to learn something new. Head to the library and start your journey.
