Click daily, weekly or monthly for your horoscope
For you, May is always a month of two halves, beginning in the closing days of your current solar year while ending with your birthday month and new solar year underway. This will always create a situation where there is at least one point when the lines between the past, present and future become blurred but this year they are likely to remain blurred all month. The month begins with Venus already in Gemini, with new doors already open and your heart looking to the future. Things will become even more future focused when the North Node, a force constantly looking to the future and opening new doors will return to Gemini on 5th May. However, while Mercury will leave a nostalgic and reflective part of your chart and return to Gemini on 12th May and the Sun nine days later to begin your birthday month and new solar year, Venus' retrograde turn on 13th May will turn her attention onto the past. Yet, whether it is looking to the future or the past, there is a lot of support in both directions. Venus is the planet of love and that that makes her retrograde turn even more special, for with Saturn turning retrograde in an adventurous part of your chart on 11th May and Juno in retrograde motion in your romantic sector until 27th May, this is creating a strengthening mix of romance, adventure and nostalgia. Mars will be part of that mix until leaving an adventurous part of your chart on 13th May, with his return to your career sector having a huge impact professionally and especially in this new Covid 19 world that is still in its embryonic stage. This is Mars' first visit in nearly two years and he not only returns to fire things up professionally but with perfect timing. With a Full Moon in your work sector on 7th May and the dwarf planet Ceres having returned to your career sector late last month to update your professional needs and priorities, you will be ready for when your professional year catches its second wind.
Week beginning Monday 25th of May 2020
If how a new solar year begins is any indication of what you can expect over the coming year, then you are in for an exciting journey. The Sun only returned to Gemini last week but a New Moon over the weekend has already given your birthday month and new solar year the green light, as well as putting a tailwind at your back. While this New Moon fell just two days after your birthday month began and this should be too soon to commit to your new solar year, the future and the journey ahead, you are more than ready. Venus has not only been in Gemini since early April and has been giving your heart a voice since then, in retrograde motion is even holding the door open to the past and second chances. At the same time with Mercury, your ruling planet leaving Gemini on Friday, you are ready to update your game plan and resolutions for the coming year. Meanwhile, there are exciting developments on the income and professional fronts this week.
Wednesday 27th of May 2020
Just 10 days before a lunar eclipse in your relationship sector and just days after the Moon itself stress tested a balance between your personal and relationship needs, the Moon returns for its monthly visit to your communication sector. With no planetary activity in your communication sector and Mercury, the planet of communication just two days away from leaving Gemini, the Moon returns with the extra muscle needed to get the communication lines open.
Gemini is the third sign, ruled by the planet Mercury, the quicksilver messenger God of our zodiac. It's from Mercury that you get your clever mind, your superb powers of persuasion, your often restless spirit and your (sometimes insatiable) need for mental exploration.
The mythological Mercury was a trickster, a silver-tongued talker who could bargain with clever logic. Fleet of foot and freedom-loving, Mercury had wings on his feet and liked to use them, forever flitting from one place to another. You like to use the wings on your feet too and you don't like to feel hemmed in. At any social gathering, you have to be free to mingle.
Mercury traditionally rules over barter and trade and our signposts and highways, in more modern day he still rules our roads and motorways, as well as the cars we drive on them and the signposts that guide our way. Our postal service, telephone systems, schools and shops all belong to Gemini, and there are many of you sharp-witted folk employed in those areas.
The mode of Gemini is mutable, which means you're adaptable and changeable. Unlike our fixed friends of the zodiac, who like to keep things the same, you positively thrive on variety and change. This can make you something of a Jack of all trades, you learn quickly and bore easily, forever adding to your knowledge. It's likely that you're a veritable mine of information.
Not knowing or not understanding can equate to worry or actual suffering for Gemini. You can sometimes live on your nerves and you find the unknown a fearful place. You grow in strength as you grow in understanding, while the more you know, the more information you have to share and the more secure you become.
There are many myths of twins and usually one is alive on the earth while the other resides in the underworld, sometimes they exchanged places. Your Gemini mind can be in two places at once and you can sometimes be easily distracted. However, no other sign can multi-task as effortlessly, nor as efficiently as you!
Being an air sign, people experience you like a breath of fresh air You get along well with the other air signs, Libra and Aquarius. You also get along like a house on fire with the fire signs, Aries, Leo and Sagittarius.
You can find yourself feeling stifled or smothered by too much earth, people with lots of Taurus, Virgo or Capricorn. Or you can feel suffocated by too much water, the signs of Cancer, Scorpio or Pisces.
Much of this depends on your own planetary blend of energy. Although Mercury is always close to the Sun, it's not always in the same sign. Those of you with Mercury at home in its own sign will have a more pure experience of the essence of Gemini.
If you don't know where Mercury is positioned in your horoscope, one of our astrologers will be happy to help.
