How will Mercury in Gemini affect us?

Be curious about the world and set your sights on new horizons! Mercury, the planet of spirit, communication and connection will spin like a cyclone in the vast sky of Gemini. Get ready to feel the pace of life quickening!

When Mercury enters Gemini, the planet of connection feels right at home! This is because he rules this air sign and is known to be his home. Whenever a planet is in its original zodiac sign, it can radiate its powers very easily!

During this time, our minds will be hungry for knowledge and inspiration. However, we won’t care so much about in-depth knowledge or being experts in our fields, but more about knowing a little about everything! We will be able to communicate ecstatically with others, as we crave debate, discussion and connection. Our words and ideas will be emboldened. We will be communicative in every way, both digitally and in person. For this reason, expanding our networks both personally and professionally can happen quickly!

Want to meet new people? You are in luck with Mercury in Gemini. Socialize to your heart’s content! Yet, because we are so eager to watch it all, see it all, and learn it all, our minds will be slightly less focused and may become more scattered, especially during the retrograde phase! Advertising, social media efforts and marketing will be exceptionally well known! Broadcast your voice and your vision in the world! Want to be the next big influencer or social media star? Get over there now.

In the weeks to come, prepare to be able to “talk the talk,” but beware of not being able to “walk the talk.” That’s because Gemini energy is all about joking wittily and talking before you think twice! Don’t sink into the negative vibes of this transit centered on gossip, lies or distraction – instead speak from a place of balance and wholeness and you will go far.
