As of May 11th/12th, Mercury has officially moved into Gemini. This meaning things are about to line up in some pretty amazing ways. 

Mercury for those who do not know feels quite at home in Gemini as Mercury rules over Gemini. This planet happens to be the planet of communication and really works to help us break through the status quo in the best ways possible. While this amazing celestial body is present in the sign Gemini the two will be working together. 

We will in many ways be working to open our minds and work through some of the hold backs we’re dealing with. If you’re struggling to get things out in the open, these energies are going to be all you need. Mercury in Gemini is really bringing a lot to the table. wrote as follows on these energies and their influence:

If it feels like you’re being pulled into a dozen different directions, or that you’re a little more distracted than usual, there’s a good chance that Mercury is in Gemini! The combination of Mercury and Gemini means we will probably be thinking in tangents, never able to follow through with a single thought for too long. Imagine a bee buzzing around inside a jar — that’s what our minds are like during this transit.

Mercury and Gemini are both into facts and data. Open subjects like philosophy, the meaning of life, and other big picture concerns become less important to us when Mercury moves into this sign. Because of this, talk may come more easily for all of us, even though the truth could be hard to find.

If you were hoping Mercury in Gemini might give you the ideas needed to write that original novel or to come up with the next big innovation, don’t set your hopes too high. Follow-through is not Mercury in Gemini’s strong suit. It’s more likely that one idea will float into another which will float into another — best to keep a voice recorder on hand and revisit these flashes of brilliance later!

During the time that Mercury is in Gemini, you will be much more willing to let your wit come to the table. Sure, you might find yourself getting bored easily but that’s nothing new for most of us. Allow your mind to see things from a more logical view and go with the flow in ways you otherwise never would. Sure, the things happening in the celestial world are a bit intense right now, but they will die down in time.
