Mercury, the planet of mind and communication, went into the sign Gemini this morning at 9:22 am, June 13 AEST. It will reside there until June 30 when it transits into Cancer. Here’s my take on how it may express whilst in Gemini, one of the two signs it rules. [The other being Virgo]
Gemini brings the best out of Mercury. The mind is given speed, agility, versatility and at best, brilliance. Clear thinking, logical reasoning, articulate communication, and a penchant for wit, humor, and word play are also characteristic, some being given to double entendres, others to clever one-liners. Doing two things at once is a natural talent, like singing and playing a musical instrument, or a more prosaic habit, like reading whilst eating. Manual dexterity is common, as is a capacity to hold down two very different jobs, but perhaps their greatest talent is to be able to talk their way into and out of any situation. Their interests are wide rather than deep, leading them to know a little about a lot rather than a lot about a little. Negatively, they can lack the focus and endurance necessary to produce truly great work, their minds too easily becoming distracted or overloaded with trivial or useless information. Also, verbal dexterity can degenerate into trickiness, intellectual brilliance can lack wisdom, and their habitual stance of impersonal detachment can lack warmth and feeling, which may make it difficult to sustain loving relationships.
