Gemini Lessons: Learning to Relax

Learn. Question. Discuss. Share. Bridge. Synthesize.

All of these words reflect principles of Gemini, the sign that loves words and wordsmithing.

During the next several weeks weeks, we have got an opportunity to become more intimate with Gemini energy. And in pure Gemini fashion, reflecting the sign of the Twins that adores multiplicity, there are several reasons for that:

We're in the growing light of Saturday's Gemini New Moon, which has seeded in us the quest for seeking out new ways of gathering information and understanding.

Assertive Mars has been flitting through Gemini since May 31 and will do so through July 13, ratcheting up our desire to know, learn, and communicate.

Expansive Jupiter is at the end of its one-year voyage through the sign of the Twins, ready to take up residence in home-y Cancer on June 25. As Jupiter takes its final bow through Gemini, it's certain to draw a spotlight on everything that this mentally oriented air sign inspires.

While all of this may propel us to learn, question, discuss, share, bridge, and synthesize, we may also find ourselves a bit unsettled as we're pulled here, there, and everywhere in heightened Gemini butterfly fashion. And with Gemini co-ruling the nervous system, the impact—if we're not grounded—is that we may find ourselves being overly agitated, nervous, and stressed.

Therefore, take extra good care of yourself over the coming weeks, doing what you can to build in relaxation and calm. Revisit the stress-reducing self-care practices and elixirs that you know work well for you. Some of my favorite go-to's are Rescue Remedy, chamomile tea, lavender essential oil, breathing exercises, gentle walks, and meditation (even if just for five minutes at a time).

So, during this Gemini season, learn, question, discuss, share, bridge, and synthesize but also don't forget to practice stress-reducing self-care at the same time.
