Gemini (May 21st – June 20th)
Networker. Teacher. Writer.
Gemini Sun Sign
That spark you feel when you’ve made a connection—to a person, place, or when you’ve threaded together a string of ideas? That’s the very essence of the Gemini star sign at work.
As an air sign ruled by the messenger planet of the zodiac, Mercury, Gemini energy is written all over some of the world’s most brilliant innovations. Whenever broadband internet connects you to your BFF in the Bahamas, your morning newspaper is delivered straight to your inbox, or that interoffice brainstorming session leads to The Next Big Thing, you can thank Gemini archetypes for making it happen. From whiteboards to keyboards, you always find a way to connect consciousness to humanity in any way, shape, or form.
You’re a wellspring of trivial knowledge, Gem.
While you’re certainly known for your ability to express your whirlwind ideas, your power lies in your ability to collaborate with just about anyone. You’re bound to find something in common with that guy in the historical romance section of the library, or that woman down the street that breeds Labradoodles. The key is to use those brilliant brain waves of yours to bring together people and ideas that otherwise would have never found their way to each other.
Because your interests are so diverse, you get a bad rap for being fickle and inconsistent. You communicate with both sides of your brain firing at the same time and ideas flung all over the map. It can come off as duplicitous, but sometimes it’s actually genius. Your job, however, is to slow down, get out of your head and into your body, and not overcommit. Only fill your calendar 75 percent, and play the rest by ear.
The key to soulful, satisfying success is to make sure those ideas don’t stay inside you, love. You can research and daydream for the rest of your life, but are you sure those thoughts belong there? A ship in harbor is safe, but that’s not what ships were built for, Gem. Neither is your unique perspective.
To support your cosmic health, a regular writing or journaling practice will do you wonders. Let all of your ideas flow—the somber, the wacky, the truly outrageous. Then listen in. Take what resonates most, hone it, and share your genius with the world.
Gemini Rising Sign
Never short on social graces, those born with Gemini as their rising sign can talk to just about anyone they come in contact with. Versatile, creative, and never short on words, you bring a quicksilver energy to any situation or person interesting enough to hold your attention. This tendency to flit from idea to idea may come off as flighty, especially if you have a slight case of FOMO when it comes to the next shiny thing. That’s why it’s so important for you to stay grounded, connected to your body and committed to that which you most want to do.
You’re happiest when hopscotching between the realms of ideas and people—both Gemini specialties. You like to take an idea from one place and sprinkle it into an unlikely situation, to mix, match, and experiment with methods and modes of communication in order to invent something totally new.
And while this tendency to flit between social circles and projects satiates your creative instinct, it’s so important that you take excellent care of your body. Exercise, breathwork, nutrient dense meals #priorities.
You’re most powerful when you combine that curious mind with your opposite sign, Sagittarius’ knack for finding the best in others. You don’t need to know everything about everyone; sometimes it’s best to see what they can become. Stay optimistic and resourced, and you’ll surely find your way to the top!
Gemini Moon Sign
With a Gemini Moon, your very essence relies on communicating with others. You don’t quite feel like yourself unless you’re sharing information and gathering data from the people around you.
While collecting tidbits of trivial knowledge about people, places, and well… everything, feeds your curious soul, this moon placement requires that you share what you’ve learned as well. A natural teacher, you tend to thrive in situations where you can drop some much-needed knowledge. Self-expression feeds your soul’s urge to communicate important information and gives your eclectic mind a sense of purpose.
And in the end, it’s that sense of purpose that will keep you in check. You have the ability to gain a rare glimpse at ideas ready to manifest—you just have to choose which ones light you up and see them all the way through.
Are you ready to embody your cosmic destiny?
If you’ve been lucky enough to be born with a Gemini sun, moon, or ascendant in your chart, it’s time to embrace the natural creativity and innovation brewing inside you. It’s time to practice the sacred art of commitment to the ones that light you up and communicate them to the world in only the way your quicksilver soul can.
As women and woman-identifying people, we’ve come to a crossroads in our political and social history. It’s time for us to fully embody our highest potential and put to use our greatest spiritual gifts for the betterment of our world. It’s time for us dive deeper into our personal soul-traits so that we can leave a wider, more powerful imprint on this critical moment in time.
Join me for my annual Moon Cycle Embodiment Challenge starting on November 7th. The very next day, Jupiter, the planet of good luck, good fortune and abundance enters into Sagittarius, we’ll begin. You’ll learn how to harness the 28-day cycle and unparalleled energy of the moon to renew your feminine connection, deepen self-care practices, reclaim your health rhythm, and learn more about astrology. *This challenge is for anyone who identifies as female.
