Mercury Retrograde in Gemini May 29-June 22, 2021
Review, Reverse, and Redo
Mercury is the planet of communications, connections, facts, and transportation. When it goes backwards (in appearance) in its home sign, Gemini it is in the most notable position for snafus and misunderstandings. Just get one of those clappers for your keychain because you will need it. And, Oh, if you don’t have an extra key hidden outside of your house take care of that too. Get car repairs done in advance.
Gemini is a mischievous sign and its symbol is The Twins. You may feel like there are little gremlins purposely annoying you. Summer travel plans or pandemic restrictions may change. Double check any charges on your online accounts because data is prone to mistakes.
Very recently Mars moved through this same sector of Gemini from March 31 through April 24. Things you decided, plans you made, people you interacted with may get lost in the ozone or require a reboot twice. (The Twins, remember?)
The hot air you usually blow may fall flat. The time calls for extreme patience, flexibility and kindness. Retrogrades are important because they help us reconsider or edit past actions and plans. Examine your connection with the media. Do you really need to know everything you are looking at and hearing? It is not a good time to enter a poetry slam or launch a new website. Go inside yourself and be truthful about excuses and rationalizations. Go “Forest Bathe” to get out of your head. Remember the Ray Charles song, “Your Mind Is On Vacation and Your Mouth Is Working Overtime” and adjust accordingly.
The actress Juliette Lewis has a Gemini Sun, and Drew Barrymore has Gemini as her personality point. Both of them were child stars with very mobile faces and are great comedians. They each lived the vulnerable shadow side of Gemini when they got into drugs at an early age. You may feel the need for reassurance during this retrograde. The comedian Amy Schumer is a great Gemini Sun storyteller.
“I just have this sense of entitlement that I should be able to feel comfortable at all times, like I could go to bed at any moment in what I’m wearing.“
