Gemini (21 May – 21 June)
It’s quite a month coming up for you. Firstly, your planet Mercury is in the thick of the action or perhaps we should say non-action. This is because Mercury turns retrograde on the 5th and remains on go slow until the 28th.
You probably already know the drill when Mercury’s in retreat. This is not the time to take action or make big decisions. Instead, it’s a time to explore and contemplate, reflect and review. In fact, the re-words often dominate during Mercury retrograde phases. Going back to the past to reconnect, rework, revise.
What’s significant about this Mercury retrograde phase for you is that it takes place in Pisces and your career and vocation sector. Plus, Mercury is not on its own in this sector of your horoscope.
On the 6th, there’s a New Moon in Pisces, a symbol of new beginnings, which pulls in Pisces’ cosmic ruler, Neptune. Neptune is God of the sea and is boundless. This is fertile ground for dreams and imagination and following your feelings to seek inspiration.
However, this can also be confusing and leave you feeling as if you’re swimming around in circles. Mercury and Neptune come together for the second time on the 24th of this month and Mercury remains close to Neptune until the first week of April.
It’s an inspiring time to let go of the ties that bind you but not the best time to make key decisions. If you already work in a creative or compassionate field, this month’s events may feel blissful and transcendent. If you’re currently unsure or at a crossroads in life, you may experience the opposite and feel lost and confused about what next.
It’s important that you’re aware of this key astrology and don’t panic if you feel as if things are falling apart or you can’t see the way forwards clearly. For now, go with the flow and do whatever inspires you. Consider new and creative ideas that you can bring to your career and vocation in the future.
At the same time as your ruler Mercury is on go slow, the planet of relating, Venus, is in Aquarius and your travel and study sector from the 1st until the 26th. Therefore, you could choose to take time out this month, go somewhere different or be somewhere different. When you change your surroundings or your everyday routine, you shift your perspective and see things differently.
This is a strong month to tap into your right-brain creative way of thinking and leave your left-brain strategist to be helpful another time. This is particularly important if you know that you’re on the verge of something new and ready to explore an alternative path in life.
Plus, this month’s astrology not only indicates a sea-change but it’s a period of soul-searching. This is because there’s strong emphasis on the star sign Taurus, which is the sign before yours and rules the most hidden sector of your horoscope.
Action planet Mars is in Taurus for most of the month, up until the 31st. On its own, this combination is about digging deep and turning inwards to access your inner voice. You want or need more time alone when key planets are in this part of your horoscope. Care and nurture are foreground, whether this means self-care or caring for others.
Sometimes, you’re doing research, studying or working on a major project that, for one reason or another, isn’t ready to see the light of day. It’s wise to slow down the pace of life before you dash off again. Appreciate contemplation, relaxation and reflection.
Plus, the major move of this month if not this year, accesses this same part of your horoscope. This is because innovative Uranus moves into Taurus on the 6th, the same day as the New Moon in Pisces. Uranus remains in this sector of your horoscope until 2026.
Taurus is one of the earth signs and this feels like digging down deep to find buried treasure, which is different for you. If you’re a typical Gemini, you thrive on being out in the world and you find yourself through communication and interaction.
While Uranus moves through Taurus, however, this may stir things up from the past or connect you with a deeper sense of self. There’s wisdom in slowing down. It’s a rare opportunity to get off the hamster wheel of life and see what lies beneath.
This could be a time of enlightenment or awakening when you’re ready to explore the unknown and set off on a new journey. Admittedly, changes in your own life may be precipitated by a crisis or dramatic event. Either way, this is not the time to stay stuck or rooted in one place. Instead, change beckons.
This month’s planetary combination feels important for you and it looks as if you’re going to have some big decisions to make moving forwards. There’s no need to rush into anything, however, as much as you might want to.
Instead, create time away from normal proceedings and wait until the 27th/28th before you act. On the 27th, the planet of relating, Venus, is in Pisces and your career sector and teams up with innovative Uranus. This may mean that someone steps in to help you on your path.
Plus, the following day, the 28th, your ruler Mercury is back up to speed. This is when the truth emerges or what’s hidden comes to light. You see things more clearly and you can gear up ready for the next stage.
Turn to other people for guidance, advice and inspiration once the Sun enters Aries and your friendship and group sector on the 20th, the day of the Equinox. Plus, the Full Moon on the 21st falls in Libra and the relationship sign.
This could be a key date for your close relationships as Venus and Jupiter, your partner planet, come together on the same day. This promises love or a new stage in a relationship. At the very least, it will help you define what you want and what you don’t want when it comes to affairs of the heart.
