Gemini Season 2021: a Cycle of Learning

On May 20, 3:37 PM ET, the Sun enters the sign of Gemini, and Gemini season 2021 inaugurates a cycle of learning. The Sun will be in Gemini until the Summer Solstice, happening on June 21: during this time, we will also navigate an intense Eclipse Season.

While the Sun travels through Gemini, we tend to observe and analyze all details of reality, as we challenge our existing beliefs, thinking patterns, and mental constructs. The journey of the Sun through the sign of the Twins shines a light on our intellectual efforts, increasing our curiosity and our desire to know more. Gemini season invites us to appreciate diversity, make new connections, share and gather data and facts that allow us to make conscious and informed decisions.

 

Gemini Season 2021: a Cycle of Learning

 

Gemini is multifaceted, thought-provoking, and versatile: this Yang, Mutable Air sign is the first Air archetype of the Zodiac, through which we discover our immediate surroundings and develop a relationship with language and words. In this phase of evolution, we begin to give names to what we see, we collect information that allows us to understand how life works, and we make sense of our reality through logic, inductive reasoning, and the left hemisphere of the brain.

Gemini season represents a time to cultivate curiosity, exchange opinions, debate, expand our social circle, listen to others, and open up to new experiences. It is a chance to attune to our environment and to understand the conditions available to us in the present moment, in order to better adapt to them and make the most out of the opportunities we have. The yearly journey of the Sun through Gemini offers us an invitation to focus on our intellectual pursuits, hone our communication skills, open our minds, and learn something new. 

 

Navigating the Eclipses

 

During Gemini season 2021, we will experience a Super Full Moon Total Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius and a New Moon Solar Eclipse in Gemini. Eclipse season is a very karmic period: during this time of the year, we experience fated events and situations that have the purpose of speeding up our evolutionary pace and help us move forward in our growth journey. Sometimes, the process is uncomfortable and we don’t understand it fully while we are deep into it. With time, we develop more objectivity: looking back, everything gets clearer.

Gemini Season 2021

The Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius is taking place on May 26 on the South Node of the Moon, and will highlight past beliefs, assumptions, ways of being and living that need to be released. This Lunar Eclipse has the purpose of helping us let go of the past to make space for the new, possibly bringing up doubts relative to what is true for us and what isn’t and inviting us to embody a deeper level of authenticity.

The Solar Eclipse in Gemini is happening on June 10 on the North Node of the Moon. Solar Eclipses are supercharged New Moons that mark potent new beginnings and invite us to set clear intentions around what we desire to cultivate and focus on. This Eclipse invites us to welcome the future: it will open a new chapter of our life and encourage us to embrace new paths and new learning opportunities. Sun and Moon will be conjunct retrograde Mercury, its planetary ruler, and in a square aspect to Neptune in Pisces.

The tense alignments to Neptune will make it challenging to think and see clearly. Sun and Moon square Neptune will increase our energetic and emotional sensitivity while potentially clouding our perception of reality and of ourselves. These aspects highlight the need for discrimination, critical thinking, and the importance of setting and holding boundaries, which will be facilitated by the supportive trine between Sun, Moon, and Saturn.

 

Gemini Season 2021: the Sun in Aspect

 

On May 21, the Sun in Gemini squares off Jupiter in Pisces. This aspect may reflect an excessive flow of information coming in and out, possible misunderstandings, and a tendency towards overexpansion in the social sphere. Cultivating moderation will help avoid burnout or excessive stress.

The Sun in Gemini will perfect its conjunction with the North Node of the Moon on June 1, but we will feel the effects of their alignment since the Lunar Eclipse in Sagittarius and for the rest of Eclipse season. The Sun conjunct the North Node represents an invitation to shine, be ourselves, embody our light, and be seen. We will have chances to creatively integrate the energy of both Nodes, balance the left and right brain, and find flow between logic and intuition. As we find ourselves in a sea of contrasting information, we are encouraged to trust our guts and listen to our inner voice, to discriminate between what is meant to be in our lives and what is not.

Gemini Season 2021

The Sun trines Saturn in Aquarius on June 3, supporting our practical efforts and our capacity to step up to deeper levels of responsibility and self-mastery. This harmonic alignment helps us get things done proactively, inspires us to embody a deeper level of maturity and take charge of our life accordingly. Sun trine Saturn promotes the sustained effort needed to structure our creative endeavors and self-expression. This aspect makes hard work more tolerable if we feel the work is aligned with our purpose.

The Sun joins retrograde Mercury on June 11, just a few hours after the Solar Eclipse. When Mercury retrograde meets the Sun, it is always at the midpoint of its retrograde period. Their exact conjunction, referred to as cazimi, is an aspect associated with brilliance, intellectual talent, and innovative ideas. This is enhanced by the fact that Mercury is traveling through its home sign. Take notes of the ideas and reflections emerging during these days and evaluate whether to take action on them after Mercury has stationed direct and completed its post-shadow period.

 

Gemini Season 2021: Appreciating Diversity 

 

The yearly journey of the Sun through Gemini inspires us to take into consideration different perspectives and viewpoints, to get information from different sources, to think independently, and to question the consensus mentality. A risk may be getting lost in the search for more data and information to the point of losing touch with our intuition. We may mistrust our instinct and our inner voice, and forget to emotionally integrate and digest the information that we are taking in.

Venus, Mercury, and the North Node of the Moon are currently in Gemini too. The emphasis on the Mutable modality and the Air element highlights our need for freedom and space and increases our capacity to be versatile, adaptable, and mentally flexible. Gemini season is an invitation to appreciate diversity, cultivate a lighthearted attitude, explore what life has to offer, and celebrate existence in all of its expressions.

Gemini Season May 2020 – What It Means For You?

The Sun will move into the sign of Gemini on May 20th-21st where it’ll remain for 30 days. This is also known as Gemini Season.

The sun gives life and changes the seasons of our planet; as it moves through the zodiac signs it shines a light on certain themes and brings the energy of that sign into focus. This means from May 20th until June 21st we will be getting a flash of Gemini energy.

 

Gemini Season: Fresh Air

 

Gemini is an air sign and like air it wants to be free, to move around. This energy is all about stimulation and being dynamic. It’s the breath of fresh air we appreciate on a hot sticky day. It’s the fullness of a deep breath. It’s when we give ourselves some space to air out.

gemini season

Air is in constant motion. It’s flowing in and out of our bodies and it’s moving from one place to the next. This element carries sound from one person to another. It’s the thoughts and ideas that flow through our minds. It’s the information we receive and what we choose to do with it.

Gemini energy is often represented by two twins. This can be paradoxical and even a little tricky. These twins represent that we all have many sides. We are the good and the bad. We are happy and sad. We are light and we are dark.

 

Exchanging Energy

 

We are constantly exchanging energy. This exchange could be between our lungs and the oxygen. It could be between ourselves and a neighbour. It could be between our minds and our realities. It could be between our positive attitude and our skepticism.

Gemini energy can be a trip and brings a chance of overthinking. It rules the air, intellect, information and communication. It can be hard at times to understand just how intertwined we all are.

We are exchanging energy at all times, even in unseen ways. Air carries many things and impacts every facet of our lives. For starters, it literally keeps us alive.

We’ve seen the world fight against an invisible enemy. We’ve known the impact words can make. When we are able to vent, and let out all our thoughts, we feel better. If someone says something hurtful we might remember it for years to come. When we are able to tell the truth we can feel relieved. We can definitely feel the power of a smile or positive message.

We’ve all experienced these energy exchanges. Throughout Gemini Season we are invited to become aware of the currents we are swimming in. Information is energy. Money is energy. Gemini Season is an invitation to look at how we are interacting with these streams.

 

Gemini Season: Keeping it Light

 

The element of air literally weighs nothing and Gemini likes to keep it light, instead of getting heavy or serious. Laughter, imagination and humour are central to this energy. Gemini is the trickster and laughter is the best medicine. During these times we are asked to get silly and have some fun.

fun

Are we taking everything super seriously? Are we feeling weighed down? Can we lighten up? Can we do something that makes us laugh or smile?

 

Connecting to Our Imaginations

 

Gemini Season is a time to connect with our imaginations. What stories are we telling ourselves? Are they legendary, or are they scary?

J.K Rowling, Shakespeare and Scott F. Fitzgerald all had significant natal planets in Gemini. This means that when they were born, certain planets were in the sign of Gemini. Therefore they embody the themes of this energy. J.K Rowling has Jupiter and the North Node in Gemini. Shakespeare’s Venus and Neptune signs were Gemini and F. Scott Fitzgerald had Mars in Gemini.

What these people wrote impacted the world in a big way. It’s a perfect example of powerful communicators. Through them we see what’s possible when we let the Gemini winds take us away from reality and we venture into the realms of our imaginations. 

 

Being Spontaneous

 

Gemini Season is about letting ourselves be spontaneous and dynamic. It’s okay to feel distracted and daydreaming is encouraged. This energy wants us to take a detour or cancel our plans. It wants to be flakey and free. It’s okay to not always follow through; but it is important to become aware of the exchanges.

Let’s say we decide to cancel a call with a friend, because we know every time we talk to them we are left drained. In this case, the exchange with our friend leaves us feeling depleted.

Let’s imagine we were going to sit at our desks and work all day, but the sun came out and we decided to ditch our commitments for the sunshine. This exchange with the Sun leaves us feeling rejuvenated and full.

 

Becoming Aware

 

There are currents of energy and exchanges happening all around us. Some we are aware of, others we are learning to see. Gemini Season is teaching us to get honest with ourselves about the exchanges of energy we are making.

 

Currencies + Energy

 

Here on Earth money is a big way we exchange energy. The key is to remember that even though money can trigger and challenge many, at the end of the day it is still energy. Like a stream this energy needs to be able to flow and move. It’s interesting that the world “currencies” sounds a lot like currents.

In the modern world money itself is often invisible, like the element of air. We tap our cards, see our balances on screens and can send money electronically.

The way we exchange with each other is shifting and changing; therefore money as we know it must change too.

 

Gemini Season: Uranus in Taurus Natural Abundance

 

Uranus in Taurus from 2018-2026 is bringing change to how we define “wealth”. We are moving towards becoming a world of true value. Where nature’s natural abundance and prosperity is free to flow; instead of being blocked by human intervention. For more information about the history of Uranus in Taurus tap here to read our article.

Let’s think about a river. This river nourished its surroundings, it was crystal clean and provided water to many. Then humans came along and decided to build a hydro dam. They invented a way to manipulate the current in order to generate power. They trade that power for money and build an economy off of it.

During these years of Uranus in Taurus the river is ready to break down the dam. Nature cannot be regulated and managed by market forces. Doing so actually stops Earth’s natural flow of prosperity. We are living in a world that has damned the rivers of true abundance. Now is the time to change this.

 

Gemini Season: Jupiter in Capricorn Revamping the Systems

 

Jupiter in Capricorn from December 2019 until November 2020 is revamping the systems on earth. But in order to rebuild something needs to be taken down. This is not about quick fixes or pay outs. It’s about an overhaul of the system. The last time we saw this transit was in 2008. Back then establishments put some bandaids on the bullet holes of the economy. Due to many of the other astrological transits happening in 2020 this time it’s different. It’s clear that to move forward we have to think differently and be willing to change our perceptions. We don’t use astrology to predict the future but it can give us a behind the scenes look at what’s going on.

 

Monetary Systems + Astrology Charts

 

Since we are talking about money, let’s take a look at the astrology behind the Federal Reserve Systems and the International Monetary Fund.

The Federal Reserve System is the central banking system of the United States. “It was created on December 23, 1913, with the enactment of the Federal Reserve Act, after a series of financial panics led to the desire for central control of the monetary system in order to alleviate financial crises”. (https://www.federalreserve.gov/)

We can read the chart based on this date, and compare upcoming astrological events to get a sneak peak of some changes that could be on their way.

gemini season

For starters this chart shows that Jupiter was in Capricorn in 1913, when the Federal Reserve System was created. As we said, Jupiter is in Capricorn throughout 2020. When a planet returns to the sign it was in when a person was born, or an organization was established, it’s the start of a new cycle. The FED was created to control systems and alleviate financial crises, but as we face unprecedented challenges, is control the right approach? Could we instead see nature as our teacher and move towards more organic systems?

On June 21st 2020 there will be a Solar Eclipse occurring at 0 degrees Cancer. If we look to this degree in the chart of the FED we see that their natal Pluto is at that same degree. This means that the upcoming eclipse is going to activate the FED’s plutonic energy. This means transformation. Transformation means endings and new beginnings.

The International Monetary Fund was established on December 27 1945. “The IMF was born at the end of World War II, out of the Bretton Woods Conference in 1945. It was created out of a need to prevent economic crises like the Great Depression (https://www.investopedia.com/articles/03/030703.asp). Again we see an organization created to avoid an economic crisis.

natal chart

From this chart we can see that the IMF has its North Node at 29 degrees Gemini. This point is also going to be activated by the Summer Solstice Eclipse on June 21st. This brings in a change of direction and rerouting. Just like the FED this upcoming Eclipse is activating changes for the IMF.

If we compare the chart of the FED and the IMF we can see some similarities. They are both Capricorn Sun signs, Sagittarius Mercury signs and Sagittarius Venus signs.

This is interesting because throughout 2020 the energy of Capricorn is being rebuilt. Capricorn rules the systems, control, authorities and how we organize. That’s all transforming thanks to the Jupiter, Pluto and Saturn transits in Capricorn throughout 2020 (read Jupiter Conjunct Pluto blog).

Instead of having external institutions of power who control the masses and avoid crises, could Earth opt for a system that empowers each person and shares opportunities among more than just the few on top?

Finally, on December 14th 2020 there is going to be a total Solar Eclipse in Sagittarius which will activate the FED/IMF’s natal Mercury and Venus. Mercury is associated with messages, information and communication. Venus has to do with relationships and giving versus receiving. December’s Eclipse is shining a light on the FED and IMF’s communication and the information. Because of Venus’s presence this is something that will ripple out into the FED/IMF’s relationships. Since they control our current monetary systems, and we utilize those systems, we may experience these ripples.

This might feel like too much information for us, and if it leaves us feeling heavy it’s key to go back to the main theme of Gemini: lightening up.

 

Gemini Season: Laughter is the Best Medicine

 

This Gemini Season is a special one because we also have Venus retrograde (read Venus Retrograde article) and the North Node in Gemini (read North Node in Gemini article).

There is so much going on. At times all this info could weigh us down. When that’s the case remember the power of humour and not taking everything so seriously. Remember, laughter is the best medicine.

may astrology

The following information is applicable to everyone, regardless of your Zodiac signs. As we read May 2020 Astrology Updates, bear in mind that we are talking about where the planets are transiting throughout the month. This means everyone on planet Earth has the chance to flow with these currents. We can think of these updates as an astrological weather forecast.

 

North Node Enters Gemini

north node enters gemini

May 5th 1:48am EST through January 2022.

The North Node signifies what we are collectively learning and yearning to understand. This is a significant shift which occurs approximately every 18-20 months. The nodes of the Moon dictate where we experience Eclipses. Since November 2018 the North Node has been in Cancer. This is a time to reflect on what we have learned since November 2018 as we now embark on a new assignment.

The last time the North Node was in Gemini was October 14 2001 through April 14 2003. Those years shaped our collective beliefs, attitudes and outlook of the world. These themes are now up for renewal. We are invited to change our minds.

 

Supermoon in Scorpio

May 7 6:45am EST

Every year, May’s Full Moon packs a punch; because it falls in the intense sign of Scorpio. This Supermoon is a time to look behind the veil and experience the palpable pulse of the Universe. Like our hearts beating within our chests, we have to still ourselves to feel it. Scorpio Supermoon energy is extreme and may have our hearts racing. This is the final of a series of Supermoons in 2020 and is sure to leave it’s mark. This Supermoon is all about trusting our intuitions and committing to our multidimensionality.

 

Saturn Retrograde

saturn retrograde

May 11 12:09am EST until September 29 2020

Retrogrades are not something to fear or dread, but they are a change in direction worth knowing about. Saturn’s annual retrograde invites us on a journey within ourselves. The responsibility shifts from serving the external world to listening to what’s unfolding inside of us. Instead of taking orders, we are now asked to be our own leader. It’s significant to note that on this day Mercury will be entering Gemini. This adds a layer of freedom and fresh air to the mix.

 

Venus Retrograde

venus retrograde

May 13th 2020 2:45am EST through June 25 2020

Venus retrograde is a time when planet Earth is invited to look at every facet of it’s relationships. This includes love, romance, family, friends and our relationships to ourselves. Venus retrogrades approximately every 18 months and is worth having on our radar.

She’ll be transiting the free spirited energy of Gemini. Gemini energy wants to be able to make up its own minds and we are being asked to think differently. Thinking differently about ourselves, others and the collective will allow us to level up.

The Universe is giving us a key and setting us free from the cages of comfort we have built for ourselves. We are learning change is not only needed, but with the right attitude we can feel safe and steady through the shifts.

Also on this day, Mars will enter Pisces; giving us an invitation to soften our masculine sides and soothe our souls.

To get a feel for the vibe of Venus in Gemini read our recent blog, Venus in Gemini: The Heart is the Place to Start (https://www.moonomens.com/venus-in-gemini/)

 

Jupiter Retrograde

May 14 10:32am EST

Jupiter has been busy shifting the systems of humanity as it transits the sign of Capricorn. So much has changed since Jupiter entered Capricorn in November 2019. As he stations retrograde we are given a chance to reflect and integrate these external shifts into our internal worlds.

 

Sun Trines Pluto, Jupiter & Saturn

May 15-22

In January 2020 and April 2020 we experienced some revolutionary transits involving Pluto, Jupiter and Saturn coming together in Capricorn. Read more here (https://www.moonomens.com/jupiter-conjunct-pluto/).

As the Sun moves through the Earth sign of Taurus, these energy shifts are going to start to solidify and take form. It’s as if a new foundation of cement has been poured for humanity and as the Sun connects with Pluto, Jupiter and Saturn throughout the week of May 15th, we begin to see that cement harden. This will bring a welcomed sense of stability for some or a desire to tear out the cement and re-pour it.

 

Gemini Season

Gemini season

May 20 9:49am EST

As the Sun shifts into Gemini, where it will remain for 30 days, we are given a dose of fun, flight and freedom. Gemini is an air sign and like a fairy it wants to fly around. It wants to feel free to let the wind take it. This is a time where that freedom and adventure may come in the form of ideas and aspirations. Communication is a big theme here. There’s a power in laughing, smiling and having some fun. Even if there is chaos around. Gemini season doesn’t want us to be so serious. Instead a childlike attitude is key. With the North node recently shifting into Gemini, along with Venus retrograde in this sign, this Gemini season will be a legendary one.

 

New Moon in Gemini

New Moon in Gemini moon omens

May 22 1:39am EST

The New Moon in Gemini is a time to get our stories straight. We all tell ourselves all kinds of stories. This is a time to take an honest look at the narratives that cycle through our minds and ask ourselves if they are really what we want. Opening our minds to a new story takes time and this is not something that needs to be forced. Instead, we will find a freshness from letting go of what feels fearful, flat or simply boring. Swapping them for a tale which comes from our hearts.

During this New Moon Venus retrograde will be connecting to Mercury. Venus retrograde is sorting through old relationship dynamics. Mercury represents our minds. This New Moon may give us flashes of inspiration and our minds may finally understand outdated dynamics.

 

Mercury Conjunct North Node

mercury conjunct true node

May 28 8:19pm EST

Mercury is the planet of communication, logic and intellect. It’s our minds and how they are hardwired. Often, Mercury’s energy plays out as clarity or conversely confusion. The North Node represents our collective direction. It’s the chapter we are studying, and the direction we are heading.

As Mercury conjuncts the recently shifted North Node in Gemini, we are given a chance to understand where we want to turn next. There’s an opportunity to wrap our minds around the directions we are travelling and if we want to stay the course, or make a change. We could feel confused about how it’s all going to come together, but in time the details will come together. This is a time to check in with ourselves and do an honest assessment of which track our trains are on, and if they will get us to the destinations of our hearts.

We hope you have enjoyed this article and we invite you to checkout and accept the gifts we have created for you for this beautiful new month of May. Have a wonderful month filled with joy, happiness and love!
