Twin for the win as Gemini Season 2022 sparks synergies. As the Sun beams in this quick-witted air sign until June 21, clever communication gets the world buzzing with excitement.
Gemini season is an inquisitive, communicative solar cycle that will turn up the volume on everyone’s journalistic curiosity. Asking all the right questions (and even some nosy ones) during Gemini Season 2022 will help you unpack who you’re actually dealing with—and who could become a real asset in your life.
What are the dates for Gemini season 2022?
The Sun visits a new zodiac sign every 30 days or so. During each “season” everyone feels the influence of the prevailing astrological energy. Gemini season 2022 begins May 20 (at 9:23 PM EDT) and ends on June 20.
Charming Gemini is the star sign of kindred spirit energy and is always seeking a complementary companion. During Gemini season 2022, the energy is shapeshifting and versatile, but you may play the devil’s advocate TOO much and start arguments just for the sake of it. The antidote for antagonism? Change the subject! This chatty solar cycle will have everyone bouncing between topics, plans and social engagements.
What’s in store for Gemini season 2022?
Gemini season 2022 continues the work you began during Taurus season.
As earthy, grounded Taurus season draws to a close, Gemini’s dual-natured energy makes us eager to find a partner for our quests. After Taurus helped us put a solid structure behind some of our biggest plans, quicksilver Gemini sweeps in, encouraging us to seek people whose skills complement our own. Consider this a celestial reminder that pairing is caring!
Gemini is the third sign among the zodiac’s twelve players, an extroverted air sign and an adaptable mutable sign. As the only mutable air sign in the zodiac, Gemini people are often known for changing their minds. Perhaps this is why they are sometimes accused of double-talk or being two-faced. Truth is, they just switch gears or move on to their next fascination faster than the rest of us! During Gemini season, we all take on the variable aura of the zodiac’s Twin.
Gemini is ruled by Mercury, and there’s a side of retrograde for 2022
Ruled by mobile Mercury, the winged messenger, everything moves faster during Gemini season, from our cars to data speeds to the way we like to get a point across. During Gemini season 2022, keep your radar on for kindred spirits, starting in your own backyard. The local scene is abuzz during Gemini season. While neighborhood activities might still be limited in 2022, look for ways to join forces and create support networks with the people in your building or on your block.
Mercury will be retrograde until June 3—a backspin that began on May 10 while the Sun was in Taurus. Although this adds some signal-scrambling mayhem to Gemini season 2022, it sets the stage for reunions with old friends and social grounds. Whether you reconnect virtually or in real time, conversations will be lively AND nostalgic.
Six ways to embrace the power of twosomes during Gemini season 2022
1. Work the buddy system
Make it a doppia! During Gemini season, relationships act as mirrors—for better or for worse. Whether you seek out people whose skills and qualities balance yours, or connect to a romantic “soul twin,” Gemini season encourages dynamic duos of all kinds! Caveat: Watch for a tendency to lean TOO heavily on others, as cooperation may teeter into codependency if left unchecked.
During Gemini season, you can practice the delicate art of “active listening,” which can make you quite the enticing conversationalist. The way do to this is by using a “mirroring techniques” to reflect back what the other person says before chiming in with your own perspective. For example, “What I hear you saying, is that you would like to (fill in the blank).”
Mirroring might seem a little awkward at first, especially if you parrot people’s words back to them. But give it a try. This technique allows the other person to feel truly heard, which can establish greater intimacy. PS: This CAN be instinctual! Thanks to mirror neurons, your brain is wired to mimic people’s facial expressions, body language and tone of voice which creates a sense of social connection.
Does a certain type of person consistently get under your skin? Here’s something ponder during Gemini season 2022: What if their irritating traits are actually reflecting a “shadow” part of yourself that you haven’t yet accepted? Try that on and see if it fits.
2. Play the role of superconnector
Matchmaker, matchmaker! During Gemini season 2022, good karma includes introducing people who you suspect will hit it off. This can feel hugely rewarding, whether you spark a love connection between friends or hook someone up with one of your favorite service providers. You could also post a social media shoutout to someone whose stellar work you admire. Retweet a friend’s glowing post. Write a testimonial for a colleague whose service deserves recognition. Pay it forward by connecting a colleague to a VIP. As long as you can vouch for their work, a simple intro may boost careers or even change lives!
3. Say what’s on your mind
Gemini is a sign that’s known for razor-sharp humor and witty one-liners. Under this solar influence, everyone’s got an opinion to share in the comments. But perspectives change regularly during these four weeks and you might find yourself playing both sides of the fence. While Gemini’s loose-lipped influence can tempt one to court controversy, words can be easily misinterpreted, especially on social media. Word to the wise: Decline invitations to any “tea parties.”
Instead, find creative ways to spark a productive dialogue. Say things in a clever, compelling manner. It’s not surprising that so many hip-hop luminaries were born with the Sun in Gemini, including Kendrick Lamar, Tupac Shakur, Notorious B.I.G., Kanye West and Macklemore.
Beware a tendency to overanalyze during this solar phase—or make things more complicated than they need to be. Find a trustworthy friend who can “hold the bucket” whenever you really need to let it all out. If you’re worried about sharing appropriately, run it by a sensible sounding board before you hit send.
4. Explore your hometown happenings
Gemini rules the local scene and community events. Tis the season for brunching at sidewalk cafes or picking up a meal from a local restaurant to share a picnic with your squad. Whenever possible, shop mom-and-pop stores to keep your friendly neighborhood economy thriving. See what online offerings are available from your go-to bookstore, yoga studio or community college. Let the synergy flow in all of your interactions.
5. Upgrade your transportation
Gemini is ruled by Mercury, the guardian of transportation. During Gemini season, give your wheels a tune-up…or even an upgrade. Time for an electric car with vegan leather interiors, perhaps? If your feet get you around town, then treat ’em like a good set of tires and invest in a limited-edition (but comfortable and supportive) pair of summer kicks. Or, how about riding a bike, scooter or skateboard?
6. Feed your head
Books, podcasts, Instagram feeds, short classes. Because Gemini is ruled by Mercury, the planet of media and information, we’ll all be curious and hungry for novelty. Download audiobooks or kick back with a good old-fashioned paperback.
