Sun in Gemini
Explore all your options with this curious Gemini energy!
It’s time to pick up the pace! The Sun is moving into breezy Gemini from May 20 to June 21, 2014, signaling a lighthearted time to meet new people, explore new ideas and learn new things.
Gemini is a curious and intellectual zodiac sign, ruled by planet Mercury and the wing-footed messenger god. This connects Gemini to ideas, information and communication, which is why so many of us do a lot of extra thinking, analyzing, learning and chatting time of year.
Gemini is also restless, preferring to do 20 fantastic things at once instead of focusing on just one (how boring!). Yet all of this unfocused energy can make Gemini seem scattered and fail to finish what they start, so don’t be surprised if you find yourself doing the same while the Sun is in Gemini.
This may be a confusing time for some people, because there are two sides to Gemini. They are symbolized by the Twins because there is a dark side and a light side that can see both sides of every situation and change moods in a moment.
So if you find yourself changing your mind a lot and having trouble sitting still now, you can look to the Sun in Gemini for an explanation.
Those born from about May 17-23 were born on the Taurus-Gemini cusp, and those born from about June 18-24 were born on the Gemini-Cancer cusp. Being born on the cusp simply means that you were born during the transition time between two zodiac signs, so you retain some qualities from each sign.
More than anything, Gemini brings an affectionate, playful and fun energy to everyone this time of year. If you can learn to enjoy it all without overextending yourself during this time, the bright, playful energy of the Gemini Sun will light up your life!
Here’s how to make the most of life during Sun in Gemini:
What to do: A million things at once! Gemini is far too mentally active to sit still doing one thing. These are the folks you’ll see browsing the Internet with 10 different tabs open while they watch TV, eat a sandwich, talk on the phone and text a few different friends at the same time. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself multi-tasking more than usual while the Sun is in Gemini, and don’t be too hard on yourself when only half of those things get done.
What to say: Anything and everything to anyone who will listen! Gemini is the communicator, and they’ve got a lot to say — they can talk almost non-stop, spouting facts, cracking jokes and asking questions like a five-year-old going “Why? Why? Why?” It’s almost impossible to get a word in edgewise with a Gemini around, and with the Sun in Gemini you’re likely to hear an increased amount of chatter everywhere you go.
Where to go: As the Sun transits Gemini, our lust for knowledge will be on the rise. Satisfy your need to know with trips to the library, catch a foreign flick at the indie movie theater, or take in a lecture or class at a local community college. You can learn something new by meeting new people, too, so get out there! Accept every invitation you get and meet as many new people as you can.
What to wear: Gemini doesn’t take life too seriously, and the best attire this time of year is something playful and colorful to match that carefree Gemini mood. You never know where you’ll wind up now because Gemini is always up for anything, so it’s best to be prepared. Wear whatever you like, but be sure to pack a spare bag with workout gear, a swimming suit and a cocktail dress wherever you go.
What to buy: Shop for anything that will engage the mind or allow you to communicate, such as books (you’ll start more books than you finish while the Sun is in Gemini), computers, iPads, pretty stationary — all that stuff. And make sure you buy a blank journal and a good pen to bring with you everywhere you go, because ideas come fast this time of year and you’ll want to write them all down!
What to watch out for: Hyperactive Twins sometimes overthink and over-analyze things to the point of anxiety, and you might find yourself doing the same while the Sun’s in Gemini. If so, try a relaxing activity that will get you out of your head, such as yoga, watching silly TV programs or just keeping your hands and body busy. Gemini is also known for quick and cutting wit, so be careful about speaking too quickly or making offhand remarks that hurt someone’s feelings now.
What to look forward to: Having fun, meeting new people and learning new things. What are you waiting for? You better get started, there’s a million things to do while the Sun is in Gemini!
