When messenger planet Mercury enters its own sign of Gemini on May 15, life gets even chattier than normal. Our usual obsession with gadgets, technology and every other form of staying connected hits the extreme. There may be more confusion and indecision than normal, and our inability to choose just one thing, one path or even one person is highlighted.
However, this is an excellent time for tapping in to our greatest mental abilities. The ability to play with words and discover the joy of language is accentuated now. There's great interest for all-things intellectual -- especially writing, teaching and learning new languages. We're compelled to convey our message in whichever written or spoken form we're most comfortable with. But communication is a must. Keeping silent feels deadly.
Gemini is the sign of duality, thus we may feel our minds flip-flopping between opposite poles frequently. Our curiosity peaks, and we may find ourselves dancing with danger that we would normally avoid just for the sheer sake of intrigue. This is an excellent time for plowing through all correspondence and dabbling in other forms of mental exchange that would normally intimidate you. It's all about getting the word out now, so find your voice and don't be afraid to speak up -- even if the absolute truth feels elusive or confusing right now.
Gemini rules the both-and philosophy versus the either-or conundrum. This means that instead of forcing yourself to choose, remain open to both possibilities and potentially even a third idea or solution you haven't even thought of yet. Flexibility of the mind is what is needed now. Try not to get too hung up on any one problem or dilemma -- lest you drive yourself straight to crazytown.
