What The Shift Into Gemini Means For YouBy YourTango
On May 21st the sun officially enters Gemini, the third astrological sign in the zodiac. Expect less sex and more conversation as Gemini cools off Taurus's need for physical sensation with a more heady and intellectual approach to life.
Those born in Gemini, roughly from May 21st to June 20th, are often described as talkative, witty and versatile with an extraordinary grasp for language. Gemini is an air sign, which along with fellow signs Aquarius and Libra has a reputation for being cerebral and even detached, in contrast to the notoriously sensitive water signs (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces), the volatile fire signs (Aries, Leo and Sagittarius) and practical earth signs (Taurus, Virgo and Capricorn.)
So how will the earth's gravitational pulls and planet rotation affect your relationship?
The sun in Gemini is the perfect time to open up the floodgates of communication and talk things out. Words, ideas and the finesse to eloquently string them together should be extremely easy during this period. If you've been thinking about penning a sexy love letter or finally writing to that cute guy you saw on Match.com, now is the time to do it.
Gemini represents The Twins, symbolizing an effortless ability to see both sides of any coin. Now isn't the time for hysterical flare-ups or illogical attacks. A Gemini is far too diplomatic and flexible for those kinds of conflicts. And far too silly, too. Gemini's sense of humor doesn't allow for petty drama. Save the theatrics for later in the summer when fiery Leo is in full reign.
If you're single, this month should be all about socializing! Accept party invitations because it's likely conversation will be lively. Mercury, the planet of intellect, rules this sign so try poetry readings, lectures, exhibition openings or any other kind of wordy, high-brow activity where you can mix and match with an idea-filled group. You may be surprised how smart and high-energy you'll feel.
Not single but want to be? This is the month to say good-bye to a burned-out relationship. Gemini's analytic abilities will bring fresh insight and objectivity to assessing whether or not a breakup is in order. If you end up in splitsville, you may notice more nervous energy this month, so try to use it constructively to keep busy. If you're newly single, play like a Gemini and indulge in some high-energy party hopping. You never know who you may meet on your travels.
