Mercury in Gemini
Mercury gains extra strength in Gemini when he enters on April 29th, and for the most part, we can experience communication, learning and thinking at full volume! In fact, perhaps Mercury in Gemini can be too fast for some of us – in this sign, he takes information in at lightning speed and is always hungry for more.
During this period, it’s going to be absolutely essential to have a good “mental diet”, meaning that we will need to carefully pick the intellectual food we are feeding to our minds. If we don’t, we may become rather anxious and even overwhelmed with information. Luckily. Mercury in Gemini is great at sifting fact from fiction, and we can have a keener attention to detail than usual.
The reason, of course, why Mercury is staying so long in Gemini is due to his Retrograde in this busy, curious sign! Over these few weeks of Retrograde, from April 29 until May 22, thinking is a little less clear that Gemini would like it. Then Mercury regresses back in Taurus before finally coming back to Gemini on June 13th! Thats one busy messenger planet..
Gemini is a sign that generally finds it tough to make decisions, simply because it seems as if the options and opportunities available – we may freeze in fear of making the wrong choice, leading to making no choices at all.
Hence, over this Mercury in Gemini period, and especially over the Retrograde period, it’s important to stay open, yet focused and perhaps even to think about limiting our options to just a few choices, so that we can feel on top of things, mentally.
Our task this month is to have a process of elimination so that our decisions become clear and easier!
