With Mercury's move into Gemini today, the messenger is light and fast on his feet. It's a dramatic change from the rooted perspective of earth sign Taurus, to the seemingly random electric circuitry of Gemini. Mercury in Gemini creates a lighter, more stimulating atmosphere because the mind wants to play and learn. A great time to be fascinated by new sights, sounds and people.
This move into Gemini brings us closer to Mercury's second of three retrograde cycles -- all in air signs! The retrograde begins on May 26th and ends June 19th, and this extends Mercury's stay in Gemini through July 10th. Mercury in air signs allows us to gain clarity of thought, and observe life with more detachment. It's the soaring above it all portion of this year's mercurial ride. Mercury in Gemini brings the gift of being curious, and more flexible in our thinking. The trickster invites us to keep a light hold on thoughts. That way, they're easily juggled to stay current with the ever evolving Self.Disneyland, Paris (c) Matthias Gelinski
