Mercury into Gemini | fresh information comes in, who do you want to talk to, choices and changing viewpoints, giving life permission to not make any sense for awhile

Consume by bypolar-bear
Mercury (communication, ideas, local life and travel, transportation, sibling issues) moved into his home sign of Gemini last night.

We will feel a difference in the days ahead as information and communications switch from turtle pace to rabbit.

Increased choices, conversations and ideas will start to flow.

We won't put everything to use, Gemini can be rather chatty, so some stuff will just move in and out, but the change in momentum will be noticeable.

Keep in mind with Gemini there are more questions than answers and the information might be unreliable.

But easy, adaptable conversations, suitable for the moment, can pull everything forward now.

With the Sun and Mercury both in Gemini this is an excellent time to catch up on our communications. Who would we like to talk to?

Ask questions. It is best in Gemini season to maybe suspend judgements for awhile (Geminis make the best - and funniest - cynics) and approach situations with curiosity. 

Fresh information and conversations will come in and expand whatever we are dealing with. This can be stimulating if we've grown weary of Taurus's scrutiny and demand for truth.

Gemini energy talks. It listens. It questions. It perceives what isn't said at all. In short, it doesn't miss a trick. With so much to see and so much to do and so much to communicate - there is not a moment to waste on any of those roses we were smelling last month

Gemini (the twins) is the sign of duality - of black and white, of feminine and masculine, of truth and lies. Nothing will be totally one way or the other or quite what is seems now. We will be faced with dilemmas and changing viewpoints. In the end contradictory thoughts and things can come together with this energy.

We all have ideas about how things are supposed to look and work that we've carried since childhood (and before). We have these beliefs and then we, subconsciously, look around for the things that support these beliefs and that's what we notice. Then our beliefs gets reconfirmed and strengthened. Even though these beliefs are no truer than someone else's beliefs that reflect the opposite thing.

With the Sun in Gemini and Mercury home until June 12th, all of us are burning Gemini fuel - we can give ourselves permission to embrace a more wide open receptive state. We can move against the beliefs we've been strengthening since childhood if they no longer suit us. We can give life permission to not make any sense for a while.

If we are confused we are probably doing something right.

See what house holds Gemini in your natal chart - this space will be communicating with you now! What is it saying?

xo all

Today, Mercury - within hours of coming home to Gemini - is going to sextile (opportunity) Chiron in Aries. Talking about what hurts can be healing. 

We could make a connection now between some early traumatic experience and our current behavior/situation.

Chiron is freshly minted in Aries, too, and we haven't had this energetic connection in these signs since the late 1960's/early 1970's.

With Chiron in Aries encouraging us to take a hard look at ourselves, to do things for ourselves and stand on our own two feet - there could be a conversation now or information that comes in that allows us to see how our own survival instincts (or any lack of courage, passion or initiative) that we were smart enough to develop as children and that helped us when we were younger may no longer be something we need to carry. Is this energetic still working for us?

Talk about it. Write it down. Actually read the book that comes to your attention now.
