The Rock n' Roll Runoff of Multi-versal Gemini

Steps Color The Sun enters the mutable air sign Gemini on May 20th at 9:34 pm MDT and initiates a zodiac month of increasing mobility, curiosity and communication. The traditional scholastic year is coming to a close; the thrill of summer looms upon our proverbial horizons and a sense of freedom and excitement is in the air. We think of trips and travel, places we’d like to go, things we’d like to see and people we want to visit.

Gemini energy is restless, inquisitive and eager for knowledge. Its mutable modality is flexible and adaptable while the air element breathes in thinking, perception and all things born of the mental plane. It is here we encounter the curious, inquiring mind, the talker, the reader and the gossip, the student, the classroom and the teacher. Writers, professors, editors and professional speakers are often born under the sign of Gemini or have Gemini planets placed prominently in their natal charts. But Gemini also rules medicine and magic, actors and acting, travel, transportation, comedy and laughter, tricksters and thieves, information, communication and commerce. And because this energy is so multi-dimensional, multi-faceted and multi-talented, we find a great variety of personalities, professions and pursuits popping up whenever and wherever Gemini is involved.

Gemini Twins The Gemini Twins arrive on the tail of Taurus the Bull. Springtime is in full force. Days are increasing in length and the extended hours of sunlight have warmed the earth’s soil and atmosphere. The primal seeds of Aries have taken root, rains nurture new life, grass grows and flowers blossom. Baby lambs and calves graze in soft, green meadows as melting snows fill ponds and rush down canyon creeks to the rock n’ roll of runoff. Suddenly, the world is in motion. We are moving from one season in to another and, as we do, we see and experience the flux and flow of change.

As spring morphs into summer, take note of all things Gemini. Look for more cars on the highway, motorcycles on the road, boats in the river and skateboards in the park. Get out the maps and research travel. Explore the Internet, gather information, discuss options and carve out a plan. Discover the fun and festivities of our ever-evolving multi-verse, where anything is possible and everything is, well, whatever you think it is. Happy Gemini!

Aries (Mar. 21-Apr.19)  It’s time to lighten up and laugh! The Gemini zodiac month encourages humor and curiosity, childlike innocence and an inquisitive approach to life. Gather and share information, take care of business and practice the art of clear, honest communication. Also take note of the fleeting, temporary nature of thoughts and emotions. This, too, shall pass.

Taurus (Apr. 20-May 20)
As your birthday candles fade, notice the subtle – but major – changes in the air. Suddenly, motion is a theme. Schools let out; the days are warm and moods shift. It’s time to look at the calendar, get out maps and plan a summer road trip. Discuss ideas with family and work on projects at home. Focus on your own self and yard, rather than your neighbor’s.

Gemini (May 21-June 21)
Your Happy Birthday month begins on May 20th and lasts until Summer Solstice. Celebrate life via self-care and self-responsibility. There is nothing like the satisfaction that comes with productive action and self-sufficient living. When you need help, ask for it, but practice doing what you can, when you can, the best you can. Be creative and enjoy the joy.
Cancer (June 22-July 22)
Voluptuous Venus enters your sign this week and remains there for several. Tap in to the shimmering, glimmering rays of love and beauty that surround you. It’s a rather lucky time regarding romance and finance, but don’t let the feel-good vibes trick you in to being sloppy, lazy or lax. Move with the groove, go with the flow and laugh as much as possible.

Leo (July 23-Aug.22)
Leo Lions love Gemini Twins and this week initiates a zodiac month of increasing social activity when it comes to friends and would-be, could-be lovers. Identify your hopes and dreams and make an effort to associate with those who seem to share similar visions and ideas. It’s all about communication, travel and gathering information. Go for gusto.

Virgo (Aug. 23-Sep.22)
Jupiter and Saturn oppose each other this week in Pisces/Virgo, constellating themes of social justice, government control and collective responsibility. Rather than point fingers and play games of blame, gather your forces, strength and courage in the effort to make an effective impact on the world at large. Start at home and go forth from there.

Libra (Sep. 23-Oct.22)
Inspiration comes via deep breathing and elevated perspectives. Lucky you! Fellow air-sign Gemini uplifts the spirit and provides plenty of height for seeing far beyond life’s proverbial horizon. Possibilities glimmer and options glow; the future is unwritten. Recognize the power of now and do the very best you can – day-by-day, moment-by-moment.

Scorpio (Oct. 23-Nov. 22)
Commitments deepen and relationships intensify as the Sun moves in to your solar 8th house of intimate sharing and financial pairing. Whether you’re dealing with partners of love or money, communication is the key to success. Balance equations, discuss needs and delineate responsibilities. Identify common goals and focus on achievement.

Sagittarius (Nov. 23-Dec. 20)
A rather dynamic week presents itself as the Jupiter/Saturn opposition in Pisces/Virgo demands that you give equal importance to both personal and professional worlds. Balance home and family time with focused attention to career and achievement. Be practical and realistic regarding what you’re capable of doing and be sure to rest and relax. Breathe deep.
Capricorn (Dec. 21-Jan. 19)
Some very attractive partner or paramour may show up out of the blue this week as velvety Venus enters your solar 7th house of long-term relationships and important others. At the very least, this is an excellent time for making amends, soothing sorrows and negotiating agreements. Express gratitude; think positive and work steadfastly toward your dreams.

Aquarius (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
You can get a lot done with partners and companions this week as Mars in Leo encourages working side-by-side and day-by-day. Listen to what others have to say and consider its merit. Refrain from testy tirades and aggressive behaviors, even if it’s being acted out right in front of you. Practice calm in the storm and cool in the heat – you won’t regret it.

Pisces (Feb. 19-Mar. 20)
Jupiter and Uranus in Pisces oppose Saturn in Virgo this week, stirring up a juicy dish of enlightened change and multi-faceted potential regarding your life and the lives of those closest to you. Resistance is the biggest obstacle here. Boundless success comes via willingness, faith, hope, acceptance and responsibility, followed by realistic action. Good luck!
