How to get the most out of Gemini season
(even if you’re NOT a social butterfly!)
Gemini’s dual-natured energy makes us eager to find a partner for our quests but it is also prime time to use and to fill our minds. Gemini season is a great time for a little self-help, self-improvement, self-actualization, or learn a new skill you can apply in your work. Here are some ways you can do that:
Play matchmaker: Whether you spark a love connection between friends or hook up someone with one of your favorite service providers, linking people up can feel hugely rewarding! Or, 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 colleagues to each other. If you can vouch for their work, a simple intro may boost careers or even change lives!
Watch your wit! 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 type in the comments. But perspectives change regularly during these four weeks and you might find yourself in hot water. Messages can be easily misinterpreted, especially on social media. Word to the wise: Decline invitations to any “tea parties.” Instead, find creative ways to spark productive dialoguea. Make your point in a clever, compelling manner.
Avoid analysis paralysis: 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.
Feed your mind: Books, podcasts, Instagram feeds, short classes or online courses. Because Gemini is ruled by Mercury, the planet of media and information, we’ll all be curious and hungry for novelty and knowledge. Download audiobooks or kick back with a good old-fashioned paperback!
The New York Times just published 12 Books You Should Be Reading Right Now (in time for Gemini season!) that the paper’s book reviewers say answers the question: What should I read that is good or great for me? If you’re looking to take your business or a product idea to the next level, we are enjoying Nir Eyal’s, Hooked: How to Build Habit Forming Products for lots of actionable ideas.
Gemini season is also for lovers
This mobile cycle is perfect for transforming any stuck energy, the kind that may be blocking abundance and healthy relationships, especially.
Variety is the sexiest spice during Gemini season. Holding a long conversation—much less anyone’s lasting attention—could be an almost comedic effort when you’re in a room full of people. As heads swivel and promising options intermittently ghost, just do your best to not react to every plot twist.
If you want to keep a relationship at cruising altitude, be a lover and a best friend. In other words, cut your honey some slack for being human. Yes, this means you can give yourself a little wiggle room, too. It’s okay to look! And if it turns you both on, talk about who you each find attractive. That said, texting a random hottie at 2AM is not going to win any Get Out Of Jail Free cards!
In sapiosexual Gemini, seduction begins between the ears. Wordplay is foreplay! Recap some of the intellectual ideas above to keep things above board. The rest, as they say, is gravy! Keep reading below for your horoscope for Gemini season by zodiac sign!
