When the messenger planet enters his own beloved sign of Gemini on Wednesday May 7, our synapses turn to quicksilver. Life speeds up and our response time doubles in speed. It's all about wit, versatility in our thinking and a clever tongue now. Our usual obsession with gadgets, technology and every other form of staying connected could now go off the charts.

There may be more confusion, double-talk, gossip and indecision for the next few weeks. Suddenly there's an inability to choose or stick to just one thing, one path or even one person under this dual influence. However this is an excellent time for tapping in to our sharpest mental agility. The ability to play with (perhaps even twist) words and play with the game of language is the realm of Gemini. Curiosity is key and our interest for all-things intellectual -- especially writing, teaching and learning new languages -- is top priority now. We're inspired to get our message out there … to talk, talk, talk until all of the mental chatter dissipates.

Gemini is the sign of duplicity, and thus we may feel our minds flip-flopping between opposite poles on a daily basis. Since curiosity can be killer, we may find ourselves in a dalliance with trouble 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. Find your voice and don't be afraid to speak up, even if the absolute truth feels elusive, changeable or utterly confusing.

Gemini rules the "both/and" philosophy versus the "either/or" split. This means that instead of forcing yourself to choose, you remain open to both possibilities and potentially even a third idea or solution that you haven't even thought of yet. Flexibility of the mind is needed now. Try not to get too hung up on an insoluble dilemma, or pin yourself to a one-sided corner. Keep it light and flexible now!
