This post is from my May Newsletter about Gemini Season, some of the cosmic energies and how to work with them. Of course, I also share herbs that would be good for this season. There’s more great content where this came from so I encourage you to sign up for my newsletter so you can receive the next one later in the month.
Wow! Have you felt the change in energies recently?
Warm weather, a full moon lunar eclipse (5/26), solar eclipse (6/10), Mercury Retrograde (5/29 – 6/22), and Memorial Day weekend are just some of the experiences conjured up by this particular Gemini season!
Taurus energy grounded us to focus on ourselves and getting on solid ground. We took the Aries energy of initiation to set plans in motion and maintain it (Taurus = fixed energy). If you didn’t know, there are 3 modalities of a sign’s energy: mutable, cardinal, and fixed.
Gemini is a mutable sign which brings change and the completion of a season. It closes out the spring and ushers us into the summer. With this malleable air energy, Gemini can be a little hard to pin down. Ready to socialize, engage in the next activity, and make plans that they may have to cancel- you can see how this sign is sometimes dubbed as the social butterfly.
Ruled by Mercury, Gemini is all about communication. Long phone chats, random texts, a little bit of gossip, paired with the ability to also think deeply are some of Gemini’s known qualities. We may feel stimulated to be out and about as summer creeps upon us, but do take it easy. With the intensity of the combined energies happening in the cosmos, I encourage you to be careful with your personal matters, don’t overextend yourself, and be mindful (now might be a time to try deep breathing techniques).
And have fun!
Self Check-in: You’ve been working on those plans, on your projects, and making some headway. But take a moment to pause. Is there something that could use some change? A strategy reorientation? Work with the mutable energy to give yourself a break and determine how you feel about your current progress. Dig into Gemini’s inclination for curiosity.
Herbs and Healing of the season:
Mint: helps stimulate mind clarity which is needed for this season of communication. Cognitive enhancement, memory improvements.
Rosemary: memory improvement, improved oxygen + blood flow, stress reduction.
Vervain: a mild sedative for relaxing after all the socializing. Strengthens the nervous system and acts as a stress reliever.
I’ve selected images below to represent the vivacious energy that Gemini season brings in. Moving from full spring mode to early summer, people are more prone to visiting parks, enjoying the water, socializing, and enjoying the outdoors.
Though I tend to focus mostly on nature or city landscapes, I do also find myself capturing the interactions between people and thought this would be the perfect time to share some of them. Enjoy!
