As we enter Gemini season, our minds are active and our communication skills are amplified, making it easier to engage in meaningful dialogue with those around us. But this year, we will experience a special moment where both the Sun and Moon are in the sign of Gemini, ramping up these chatty, social feelings even more. This Double Gemini transit brings out a few key traits and energies that will encourage more communication than ever, so let’s explore how this may affect you!
The Gemini Vibe
Gemini is ruled by Mercury, the planet of communication, mental activity, and intelligence. Mercury encourages us to engage our minds and explore the world around us through new information and technologies, which is one of the themes during this Double Gemini transit. Mercury was named after the Roman messenger to the Gods, who carried information back and forth between the Roman deities. This represents Mercury’s informative personality—this is a planet that wants to spread information far and wide!
These traits influence Gemini heavily as a sign. Ruled by Mercury, Gemini is a sign that seeks to share as much knowledge with the world as possible through communication and writing. When we move into Gemini season, you’ll notice a shift in your perception and a desire to expand the mind. Furthermore, Gemini is an Air sign, the element in astrology associated with intelligence and a thoughtful demeanor.
When the Sun begins its transit through the sign of Gemini, our mental faculties are sharpened and cognitive abilities enhanced. However, when both the Sun and the Moon are in Gemini, your mind will experience a special sense of illumination and inspiration that pushes you to engage your intellect more than ever.
The Sun in Gemini
As the Sun transitions from the languid, relaxed energy of Taurus into the active vibrations of Gemini, you may feel a spike in your energy levels, especially in the realm of creativity. While Taurus season encouraged relaxation and indulgence, Gemini pushes us towards more activity.
This increased mental activity can result in restlessness if you don’t find an outlet for it, which is why engaging your mind is critical during Gemini season. Gemini is the ultimate multi-tasker, with about a million ideas bouncing around at all times. You may even find yourself speaking faster and with more excitement than usual, as the Gemini Sun urges you to share your many ideas and insights.
This is also a very amiable influence, as this sign is one of the social butterflies of the zodiac. The desire to communicate is so strong that it increases our need to be near those we can converse with, and because Mercury is connected to information and technology, this is a great time to connect virtually. Technology makes it easier than ever to share inspiration and dialogue with others, an activity that is highly favored during this transit. Technology also increases your ability to explore new ideas and subjects that interest you, supplying you with even more conversational topics.
When the Sun is in Gemini, it’s an excellent time for studying, learning, and writing—all of which are made easier through the use of technology. This is also a great time to visit your local library (if it’s open), a haven of information. As an added bonus, many libraries offer e-books that can be checked out from the comfort of your own home.
The Moon in Gemini
The Moon rules over our emotions and how we express them to others. When the Moon is in Gemini, you may feel more expressive around your friends and family, with a strong desire to share your feelings with those around you.
While you feel comfortable talking about your emotions, you may not gravitate towards heavy or serious topics right now. Air signs are more connected to intellectual thought than depth of emotion, preferring analyzation to rumination. It can be harder to connect to your emotional center when the Moon is moving through Gemini, as your mind is full of distractions and exciting new ideas.
Because Gemini is such a flexible sign, you will feel more adaptable and able to go with the flow during this Moon transit. You’re not likely to get stuck on any one idea or feeling with so many inspired visions flowing your way.
What to Do During the Double Gemini Transit
Take advantage of this intellectual harmony by practicing activities that expand your mind and help you absorb new information. Learning and studying are certainly favorable during this time, but self-expression and creativity are also heightened. This is an excellent time for writing, whether on a blog or in your journal, allowing your thoughts and ideas to flow.
This is also a great time to connect with others and share your vision. Most people will feel chattier and more receptive to new ideas than usual, increasing our ability to hear one another and listen more intently.
Meditation is an ideal activity under this influence, as it helps you maintain focus and release negative chatter. Your mind is full of distractions right now, and meditation will help you find the balance between intelligent thought and overthinking.
Finally, utilize the technology around you to reach out to others right now. Emails, phone calls, video calls, and chatting applications are fantastic ways to engage in safe, meaningful conversations.
Embracing the social, communicative vibes of this Double Gemini transit will help you make the most of it, allowing your intellect, creativity, and quick wit to unfold.
