We're just coming off the Gemini New Moon. Normally, I'd say it's time to connect and gather with friends and family. This is usually an effervescent energy for social gatherings, conversation and intellectual exchanges of information as well as fun and games.
This year the retrograde of Venus in Gemini along with Neptune aspects says that the summer season is getting off on a more tentative step as we test the waters of the social climate. We know it’s due to Covid, but because the Gemini energy wants to buzz around like busy little bees there's a confusion, haze and caution about just how we go about making our connections. There's a certain amount of paranoia, fear and hesitation about traveling and reaching out to touch someone. We are being re-educated on how to reconnect with friends and loved ones. We are also rethinking the education system for our children, as well as personal learning on how to use technology. It's important to gain more knowledge of the digital world that we will need to depend on so much more in our daily social and work life. The road is slow and steady with opening up the country, and the choices you make to open up your life. We are being assaulted by more and more information in a daily barrage of briefings and we have to assimilate much that is new and uncharted. You must learn to discern fact from fiction and there's more and more blurring of the boundaries on a daily basis. You have to reprogram the logical mind to be more vigilant about everyday truth and common sense, while also being more creative in adapting to new opportunities.
Let the Gemini energy stimulate your curiosity and imagination to try and test new things. If you've been too much of a couch potato take a Zoom exercise, yoga or meditation class. Learn a foreign language, or take up some new hobby that can be done on your time schedule through online classes.
We are heading towards eclipse season and the heightened sensitivities will start to be felt in new ways as we adapt to new communities and social gatherings. Be patient, don't judge others too harshly and think very, very carefully before voicing an opinion or criticizing others. You may not have all the information so don't go on the attack until you know all the facts. Gemini represents the air we breathe and it can be deadly right now, but it needn't be if you remain alert and flexible. This is a mutable sign, so its job and function is to adapt and learn.
I can't stress how important it is to be in touch with your imagination and stretch the mind into something more creative. Even if you fail, you really won't, because in making paradigm shifts any failure is a lesson towards advancing to something new. A new road or path is always one step forward, two steps back and that's what the energy is all about right now, so don't feel defeated if the first attempt at something doesn't bring the result you want. Gemini energy is always about trying, doing or saying anything at least twice!
