From May 21 to June 20 we are in Gemini season, which means the Sun is in the Air Sign of Gemini. Gemini’s Air energy can make us really imaginative, social, and curious but it can also make it a bit harder to stay grounded and complete tasks. It’s a fun time to let your creative insights flourish and to rediscover your ability to play and have fun at any age.
We also have Mercury in Gemini until May 28, making that time from May 21-28 extra infused with Gemini wit, humor, and quirkiness. The Gemini zodiac sign makes our upper chakras very active. We think quickly and our minds have lots of energy to come up with new ideas. In order to stay balanced and actually use those ideas, it’s good to work on activating the lower chakras.
It will help you to know that as the Sun moves through different zodiac signs, we can do chakra work to help balance the energies. When it comes to chakra healing, a chakra may be either under-active and shrunken or overactive and blown out. Our goal is to bring balance to our chakra energy by making sure they are all functioning with balance between the two.
This little chakra ritual check-in will help you get through Gemini season without losing your sense of stability but also to embrace the fun spirit of Gemini!
How Gemini is Linked To The Body
While there are not Gemini chakras, we know that Gemini is connected to the nervous system, the lungs, shoulders, chest, arms, hands, and fingers. The Heart chakra links to these body parts as well. It’s interesting that the Heart chakra is smack dab between the upper and lower triangle of chakras. The Gemini energy has a certain duality to it which helps us see both sides to an argument and to understand people with different viewpoints.
However, we may also be more prone to telling white lies, not following through with our promises, or even being indecisive. This chakra ritual will help you bring out the best of Gemini energy while quieting the not so desirable traits.
Gemini is ruled by Mercury, which links to our Throat chakra as well. The element of Air links to the Heart and Throat chakras that our breath moves through, linking Gemini predominantly to these two chakras.
Gemini is also linked to the Third-eye chakra and Crown chakra because it stimulates thinking and ideas, and we could also say Gemini links to the Sacral chakra, where our creative energy is stored and generated.

A Chakra Balancing Ritual For Gemini Season
You will need a jar of dirt to represent Earth, a candle to represent Fire, a bowl of Water to represent itself, and incense or a feather to represent Air. To do this ritual, find a quiet place where you can sit and start by breathing in and out of your nose deeply five times. On each exhale, relax deeply to prepare yourself for the ritual.
To connect to the four elements, state each of these affirmations as you hold the object that represents the element.
- With this soil, I ground my energy and call on the Universe to help me feel stable right now.
- With this water, I release negative energy and call on the Universe to help me focus on positive emotions right now.
- With this candle, I activate my creative passion and call on the Universe to help me ignite my purpose right now.
- With this feather (or incense), I allow myself to think optimistically and I call on the Universe to help me envision a positive future right now.
Now with the four elements activated, you will use these chakra balancing affirmations to activate and balance each of the seven main chakras.
1st Chakra Affirmation: I’m firmly connected to the Earth. I focus on what I am doing and make sure I take care of my bills, eat grounding solid foods, and slow down so I think before making decisions.
