Gemini season runs between May 21st and June 21st, the brightest days of the year ahead of Summer Solstice, inviting us to enjoy and make use of the lighter moments, circulating freely, from place to place. It’s a time to mimic the bees and winged creatures that move easy breezy, including Gemini!
Those born in this window can be birdlike, with an impish, sprightly demeanour. They are chatty, sparkling and bright-eyed – light on their feet as they check in, and swiftly, seamlessly bounce to what’s next.
Never pin them down or quieten their mind
Social butterflies leading us on a dance through spring towards the heights of summer, it’s best to mirror the Gemini you know and let them breathe, as is with all the air signs. Rather than trying to catch and secure them or see them stationary, (which can be disastrous,) go wherever the wind takes you both! Marilyn Monroe, Stevie Nicks, Prince, Johnny Depp, Russell Brand, Angelina Jolie and Naomi Campbell are typical Gemini, seen with the characteristic twinkle in their eyes. Curious, dextrous and always on the go, their wings must never be clipped, nor their spirits dampened!
Communication is key
Each Zodiac Sign is governed by a planet, and in Gemini’s case it’s Mercury that leads them, a.k.a. Hermes the messenger God, the go-between and connector. Inquisitive thinkers and articulate conversationalists (at times au fait with language), it’s no surprise Geminis make for exceptional journalists, spokespeople, communicators and teachers, with many of the world’s most prolific writers, reporters, rappers, poets and lyricists born under the sign. Tupac Shakur, Kanye West, Kendrick Lamar, Biggie Smalls, Ice Cube, André 3000, Jadakiss, Lisa Left Eye Lopez and Lauryn Hill are known for their way with words, so too Thomas Hardy, Yeats, Allen Ginsberg, Salman Rushdie, Ian Fleming, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle and diarist Anne Frank. It would be remiss not to mention Paul McCartney, who made up half of the song writing duo in The Beatles.
They work better in a pair
As the constellation Gemini is made up of Castor and Pollux, inseparable Twins, it’s no surprise that this sign does well working with another. Today we can look to The (Gemini) Olsen Twins to sense the intimacy, rapport and closeness developed as tight siblings, however, Gemini really needn’t share a womb to resonate with this archetype – they can simply thrive by engaging others, teaming up! Squash, tennis, badminton and ping pong – or any match that sees them go two-by-two, side-by-side – is ideal.
Gemini can make magic – and talk non-stop
Merchants, magicians and the initiators of games night (and sometimes mind games), people born under this sign can typically play the part of the trickster or practical joker. They’re suited to puzzles, wordplay, persuasion and hosting quizzes, or, can be moderator, with an interactive role and light exchanges. Emma Chamberlain recently stood on the red carpet, mic in hand as Vogue’s Met Gala interviewer, while Heidi Klum seamlessly transitioned from model to TV show host. They have a penchant for chit-chat, which can be mistaken for a surface-level intellect or superficial nature, even taken as gossipy or two-faced. Yet there’s no point being suspicious of this clever, mercurial playmate, trust they’re simply on the look-out for new information, interested in a variety of opinions, rather than just one in-depth take.
Let them multitask and change their mind
With their sharp, versatile mind, quick wit and abilities to pick up skills (a jack of all trades), the agile and adaptable Gemini can often be running at a million miles per hour, juggling and keeping themselves busy. Help them regulate their nervous system, allowing them to move, express their ideas and opinions (walk and talk!), invite them to discuss their thoughts or put pen to paper… This can potentially prove therapeutic, a welcome outlet, as with Emily Ratajkowski who published a collection of essays to get across her views in 2021. See them question, connect the dots, and never spoil their fun by revealing all the answers.
