As we move into late spring each year, the Sun enters Gemini and the realm of Air. The days are growing longer; rhododendrons are in bloom; students are studying for final exams. It is a time of adaptation and change.
As we notice the changes in our surroundings, we also notice changes in ourselves. We may feel more outgoing, while the sun is in masculine Gemini. The first mutable sign of the zodiac, Gemini teaches us flexibility and enables us to successfully handle the changes which accompany late spring.
Gemini is linked to the sky, which is only fitting as Gemini is the first Air sign on the zodiac. Long associated with astronomy and space exploration, Gemini lends its name to the twin telescopes of the National Optical Astronomy Observatory (NOAO) in Chile and Hawaii. And NASA’s Project Gemini, which followed its Project Mercury, was the second human space flight, and carried a two person crew into exploration.
Represented by the twin stars, Castor & Pollux, Gemini has long been associated with the concept of brotherhood and duality. The duality of being both mortal and spirit simultaneously, is highlighted in our lives as the sun travels through Gemini. During this time of year, we are more likely to be aware of the unmistakable bond between the twin sides of our personalities.
Ruled by the planet Mercury, those born under the sign of Gemini are quick witted and intelligent. They are interested in education, communication and cooperation. Their dual nature which seems perfectly logical to them can sometimes confuse others. But being teachers by nature, the twins are more than happy to explain to their ways of thinking to singletons.
You can expect to feel a strengthened sense of freedom, when the sun is in Gemini. You may feel lighter and more jovial. You will likely be presented with new thoughts and ideas, while the sun is transiting this scholarly sign. Enjoy the intellectual stimulation and mercurial change that fills the air during this wonderful time of year. Have FUN !
