Gemini Season 2019
Gemini Season 2019
Your Seasonal Forecast for May 21 - June 21
On May 21st, 3:59am ET, the Sun enters Gemini.
Gemini Season is the astrological time of year when the Universe illuminates the part of ourselves that craves connection, information, and intellectual stimulation. Life is like a buffet and during Gemini Season, we want to try a little bit of everything.
This is one of the best times of the year to revitalize your social life. If you’ve been focused on work, your family, or one of the million other responsibilities you’ve got weighing on your shoulders, take a break and go have some fun. Catch up with some old friends, meet some new ones, learn something new... just because… and live your best life.
Mercury enters Gemini (6:52am)
That same day Mercury enters Gemini, stimulating our curiosity and heightening our urge to express ourselves. This is a good time to put yourself out there. Blog. Submit an opinion piece. Start a YouTube channel. Network. Build connections. Find your people.
As an active, mutable, air sign, Gemini tends to get bored and easily distracted. Maintaining a strong movement and meditation practice will go a long way to helping you maintain your focus and direct your mental energies towards accomplishing any goal you’ve set out to accomplish.
New Moon at 12˚ of Gemini - 6:01am EST
In astrology, the Moon represents our habits. A New Moon presents an opportunity to start a new habit or renew a commitment to an old or pre-existing one. In Gemini, this New Moon asks us to consider slowing down so we can build real connections, communicate consciously, focus our mental energies, and take the time to truly learn something in-depth.
Mercury enters Cancer
Mercury will be in Cancer for the majority of June. Here the objective messenger planet gets dipped in the ocean of Cancerian feels, encouraging us to express how we feel as well as offering us the emotional intelligence we need to consciously communicate with those around us. As the planet that governs the mind, Mercury rules our perceptions, decisions, thoughts, and opinions. In Cancer, our mental processes become influenced and distorted by our moods, past experiences, and insecurities. Work with this mercurial energy by exploring your intentions before adding anymore responsibilities to your plate. Give yourself ample time and space to make decisions—and do so in alignment with both your head and heart.
Venus enters Gemini
Here until July 3, Venus in Gemini shows affection through communication and finds pleasure in getting to know someone over coffee, catching up on the latest gossip with a friend, debating current events, and pursuing whatever feels exciting or sparks your curiosity in the moment.
4:30AM ET - Full Moon at 25˚ Sagittarius
Where the New Moon presents the opportunity for cultivating new habits, the Full Moon creates the conditions for reaping their results. In Sagittarius, this Full Moon illuminates the opportunities for growth that we’ve experienced and (hopefully) made the most of in the last 6 months (from the time of the last New Moon in Sagittarius).
Sagittarius, like Gemini, hates to stagnate. If you feel like you’re in the same place you were 6 months ago, this Full Moon will give you the emotional jolt you need to get this growing. Whether you’re feeling inspired to relocate, take a trip or sign up for a new course or training program, this Full Moon will inspire you to go on an adventure.
If you’ve been spending the last six months growing and evolving, take this time to digest your experiences and sit with the lessons and perspectives you’ve gained along the way.
This is also a good time to explore your relationship to commitment. As an archetypal energy primarily concerned with growth and expansion, Sagittarius tends to find commitment restrictive. However, there comes a point in life where too much growth can become self-destructive. This Full Moon asks us to consider how we might be letting ourselves down by avoiding our more practical responsibilities in a never ending search for adventure and deeper meaning.
