MERCURY in GEMINI (May 21 – June 4) – Life is for Learning

18 May

Dear Astro~News Friends!

Have you been en-joying Life-in-Spring?
Hopefully, as Nature awakened and re-greened the World – wherever you’re fortunately to witness and be part of this yearly miracle.

The Mercurial Inner Messenger / Communicator / Mind Archetype, after having settled into TAURUS, spreads its wings in GEMINI on May 21, for a de-light-ful flight ‘window’ until June 4.

MERCURY is quite natural in GEMINI where the swift Messenger can be out and about, connecting the dots and learning lots along the way.

So let’s follow the Mercurial mode, and be a learner-in-Life!
Picking up information, talking to people and receiving the messages – maybe ‘between the lines’ and via many channels of communication is what makes MERCURY happy.
How about treating this phase like being a student?
Nothing written in the stone of your carved-out-experience, everything fluid and new, no room for prejudice and judgment. A bit scary? Makes you feel young and fresh? Good!

MERCURY is also moving quite fast now, approaching its connection with the SUN on May 21 – also the day when both the SUN and MERCURY enter GEMINI!
That’s the point furthest away from Mercury retro / right between retro phases.

Sooo, not the phase to backtrack, rather:
Being consciously and swiftly in motion, as life keeps approaching you…
A good time also to listen to the messages of the body, on the TAU – GEM cusp, to find your voice, and perhaps speak different languages (even just a few words), and see what that does in you and ‘the other’. Maybe ‘the other’ is just ‘another you’?

MERCURY is an Alchemist, and so is conscious GEMINI – bringing polarities and dualities into contact, conversation, and cooking up concoctions from that.
“Let’s talk”, can lead to so much more…

MERCURY contacts these other Planetary Archetypes while in GEMINI: 


Starting with a brilliant fusion:
MAY 21

MERCURY enters GEM 3 hrs after the SUN enters GEM, and meets the SUN 2 hrs later (at 6:07 am PDT)!
This is their ‘inferior conjunction’ – furthest away from M-r.

Find your Voice, and let Consciousness speak.
Swiftly, de-light-fully, and clearly connect & communicate.


MAY 23
Even if it’s awkward, just make the first step to talk, and be authentic.


MAY 29
Communication happens via so many channels. Even if it seems overwhelming and confusing, never mind, and trust the flow. Let yourself be mused and inspired.


MAY 30
MERCURY in GEM quincunx SATURN retro & the SN in CAP, and opposite JUPITER retro in SAG.
Both MERCURY & JUPITER in their own signs, and while MERCURY is swift & straight-forward, JUPITER is retro & inward.
Lots to organize, and no idea where to start, or whether ‘it can be done’?
Talk to people, yet also trust the Heart and the Why to guide you.


MAY 31
MERCURY in GEM quincunx PLUTO retro in CAP
Swift moves happen, yet deep & old connections get you into the Soul.


The New MOON in GEM contacts MERCURY just before both go into CANCER.
The GEM – CAN cusp is a ‘Nesting Point’ and a place where thinking meets feeling – also expressed through GEM / CAN, MERCURY / the MOON.
Where’s Home, after having buzzed about so much, and how do you feel about all the information you’ve gathered?


Where in your chart is GEMINI?

That’s where you look for / find opportunities for mental stimulation, learning, and bridging polarities.

Serving you since 2000
In Victoria BC, and worldwide



Serving you with astrological guidance and perspective, pointing you to Your ‘Inner Cosmic Compass’.

I’d love to inspire you to be in alignment with, and smoothly ‘ride’, those ‘auspicious’ or ‘challenging’ waves of cosmic energies that present themselves at a given time, and, similar to climate and weather, affect our human energy field.

Because it leads to eye opening awareness, growth, healing, release, transformation, and you can feel connected with yourself in the bigger evolution.
Ultimately, you can dwell in a witnessing place in the ‘Hub of the Wheel’ where you are less and less affected, more and more liberated, and self-realized.

The birth chart is an incarnational map to identify your ‘original imprint’and themes that are showing up as ‘issues’ in your life.
I help you see how you don’t need to be unconsciously identified with them, and they don’t have to run your life.

I’m always happy to welcome you as a client who is not seeking a ‘reading’ from me (“What’s going to happen TO me?”, “What am I supposed to do?”), but to be supported in accessing your own wisdom source, especially in times of a challenging transitions, stuckness, transformational crisis, or for perspective at a crossroad, dilemma, or empowered choices.

This is to empowered and liberating ways of working with the ancient and timeless gift of Astrology!
