As we move forward into May, we get closer and closer to the Gemini season which begins on May 20 and lasts until June 20. This entire season itself is going to bring some interesting energies to the table and give us all the chance to really open up in ways we never could have done otherwise.
The Gemini season is the perfect time for change, growth, renewal, and reflection. It will take a lot of people off guard, but for many, it will be a fun and exciting time of year. The first few weeks will go smoothly, but as we move into the latter half of Gemini season things will change as usual. Right now it is important to work on communication.
The Gemini season offers us abundance but also brings lessons about love and our inner voice as a whole. When we’re stuck in Gemini season, we’re also trying to figure out how to get along a little better.
Because Geminis are all about using their words, this season itself will be highlighted by anyone who embraces these energies. Don’t let people that you know are toxic close and do your best to only hold back the souls of those who will help you grow closer to your heart.
Geminis tend to nestle around those who care about them the most and that is something we should all take away from them and work on picking up. Everything happens for a reason, of course, but we have to do our best to protect our well-being as a whole.
Things we should be doing during Gemini Season:
Gemini gets a rep for double talk, which is true for some twins who might declare you “a great human being” one minute and then say, #idontknowher the next. But for others, it may just be forgetting, over-promising, or a legitimate ability to see all sides of the problem.
During this celestial season, the twelve signs of the zodiac would be wise to avoid tea-spillers, shit-talkers, and contrarian assholes. For one thing, they could drive you to drink! For another, you don’t need your name associated with the problem they’re causing.
And if your friends or family are trying to suck you in in the midst of their personal conflicts, run for the hills! You might start playing the peacekeeper only to have the two backfiring on you when you refuse to choose one side over the other. The best way to avoid a Gemini season disaster? Give yourself something to say besides the latest goss.
Much juicier topics might include the artist line-up at Pitchfork, dissecting a subversive exhibit in a modern art gallery, or whether you prefer salty or fruity floral notes at a rosé tasting. In short, just fill your calendar with activities that are both fun and rewarding.
Since Gemini rules the hands, now is a great time for everyone to get crafty. Take part in a “weaving with pom-poms” workshop, create a potted garden, learn to solder gold. During the Gemini Season, look forward to these dates:
May 20: The Sun enters Gemini + Pleiades Portal
The Sun enters Gemini on May 20 and 21 (depending on your time zone), which also coincides with the peak of the Pleiades portal.
The Pleiades are believed to be home to an advanced alien race and during the portal time, we can access the wisdom of the Pleiades more easily.
May 23: Saturn Retrograde
Saturn is entering its annual retrograde, encouraging us to look back on events since September 2020 and reflect on the decisions we have made and what we need to take responsibility for.
Saturn retrograde is often a time of patience and taking charge of our actions. If you have things to resolve, be patient as you may find that retrograde Saturn helps bring more information to the surface.
May 26: Super Blood Moon eclipse in Sagittarius
It is both a Super Moon and a total lunar eclipse, which makes it quite rare and very powerful. Super Moons indicate that the Moon is closer than usual to the Earth, which means that its energetic effects are stronger. Whenever we have a total lunar eclipse, the Moon develops a reddish tint, which is why it is called the Blood Moon.
Total lunar eclipses are a time of great change and transformation. We may feel that we are going through a symbolic process of death and rebirth or we may find sudden changes that we have to adapt and grow with.
As this eclipse takes place in Sagittarius, we may find new wisdom or even secrets that come to the surface that force us to evolve or change our approach. While this eclipse energy can be intense and certainly stir our deepest and darkest emotions, gentle and supportive energy is flowing into it as well. More to come soon.
May 29: Mercury retrograde
Gemini’s governing planet, Mercury, is entering its second retrograde of the year. Now is the time to take a break, which can be welcome energy to work on, as we will continue to have the energy of the eclipse.
Use this break time to reflect, work with what’s already on your plate, and pick up forgotten projects.
June 2: Venus in Cancer
Venus enters intuitive Cancer. With Venus in Cancer, we are more sensitive and connected to our true feelings.
Our feelings can be our compass, make peace with whatever presents itself and do your best to follow the feelings that support you the most.
June 10: New Moon solar eclipse in Gemini
Eclipses usually come in pairs, so this is the second and final eclipse of the season. This eclipse opens the door to a new high state of consciousness. We may not yet be able to make sense of things, but we know that new opportunities are emerging.
Now is the time to truly become a master of our mind and move on to expansive and abundant thinking rather than limited or fear-based thinking. The power of the mind is the key here.
June 11: Mars in Leo
Mars enters fiery Leo. Mars loves being in this fire sign and will give us a passion for romance, fun, and adventure! It is a very creative and very active energy.
With all of this eclipse energy creating a stir, we can tap into some of that Mars energy to receive a good motivational boost.
June 14: Saturn square Uranus
Saturn square Uranus is a major astrological energy that we work with throughout the year. The first of those squares happened on February 17th, and now we have the second, but this time Saturn is in retrograde.
It can change energy expression and guide us to be more thoughtful and patient rather than active.
June 20: Jupiter Retrograde
Just before the Sun prepares to leave Gemini for Cancer, the largest planet in our solar system goes retrograde. This gives us a total of four major planets in retrograde, including Mercury, Saturn, and Pluto.
We now have a collective theme in our cosmic skies of slowing down, pausing, and reflecting. During Jupiter’s retrograde, this will be magnifying the cusp between Aquarius and Pisces, so we may notice themes around innovation and creativity. More to come, so stay tuned!
June 20-21: June Solstice
Gemini season comes to an end as the Sun enters the sign of Cancer. It is also the June solstice, which brings the longest day of the year in the northern hemisphere and the shortest day of the year in the southern hemisphere.
The Solstice is a sacred time when the veil between dimensions is thin and the energy lines of the Earth are more active. This season, in many ways, will help you all flourish if you are ready to embrace it.
Allow yourself to go on an adventure and see where you end up in it all. Speak your mind as best that you possibly can and see where you end up.
