5 Things Every Gemini Needs for Self-Care This Season
A new vibe is coming! From May 21 to June 21, the sun will travel through curious and dualistic mutable air sign Gemini. The season of Gemini—a sign ruled by Mercury (the planet of communication, information-gathering, transportation, and technology)—will inspire you to connect, share, and learn. With information-gathering Mercury at the helm, Gemini season bolsters self-expression, relationships, and supports efforts to shift and adapt.
What Characterizes Gemini Season?
In contrast to the mindful, restful, homebody pace of Taurus season, the sun’s time in Gemini encourages excitability, socializing, flexibility, and even restlessness. Gemini season tends to be marked by a packed calendar, animated conversations, and pursuits of intellectual stimulation. You may find yourself playfully engaging with others and reveling in all forms of communication such as journaling, reading, texting up a storm with friends and lovers, or running from a coffee date to a friend’s Memorial Day BBQ to an engagement party all in one day.
What Gemini People Should Expect This Season
If you were born under Gemini, your 2019 season will be marked by a new moon in your sign on June 3, which sets the stage for conscious and productive intention-setting. But as the moon squares Neptune (planet of illusion), and then the sun in your sign squares Neptune again on June 9, rational thought and clarity around your emotions may be initially clouded. Tuning into your intuition will guide you down a promising path.
On June 17, the full moon in your seventh house of partnership encourages you to take a hard look at one-on-one relationships that aren’t serving you fully. Asserting your needs and working toward a final resolution can ultimately lead you toward more joyfulness and abundance in love, business, and friendship.
Self-Care Items to Get You Through Gemini Season
Making the most of your season will be all at once exciting and frenetic, Gemini, but you’ll handle it with grace. We’ve rounded up a few items to help you navigate this period of learning and growth. (And by the way, you still might benefit from these items during this year’s Gemini season—even if you weren’t born with your sun in the mutable earth sign!)
