Your Gemini Tarot Cards Want You to Feel Through the Season
As the sun shifts into Gemini, spirit offers an encompassing message for all signs to ponder. A beautiful stag, his antlers covered in beautiful spring wildflowers. His energy powerful, yet gentle, and his message clear: Allow yourself to be strong and allow yourself to be sensitive.
How often have we been told not to cry? How often have we been shamed for feeling? Vulnerability and empathy are not weaknesses. Emotions are not our enemy. It is much easier to push our uncomfortable feelings down, to hide from ourselves; it takes true strength and courage to face our shadows, our insecurities, our judgments, our flaws. Know yourself—not just the parts that are pleasant, but also the parts that you struggle with.
Your Tarotscopes below will help you tune into what your soul needs to focus on or address during this Gemini season. Read with your sun, moon, and rising signs in mind.
3 of Wands and The Hermit
Dear Aries, this Gemini season allow yourself to embody the trailblazing, ambitious zenith of your sign. Spirit guides you as you travel on your own unique journey.
The 3 of Wands is the card of enterprise. This energy invites you to look to the future—to see all the wonderful possibilities, to think limitlessly but to ground your dreams with actionable strategies. The Hermit is commonly seen as alone and introverted, but he is also one of the most rebellious archetypes in the deck. He chooses to forge his own path, to live authentically, to understand himself and his place in the world.
It is okay to walk a path that is traditional and familiar—there is no shame in this. However, if you feel yourself longing to break free from expectations, those of yours or of others, allow yourself to ask the questions: What if I set out on your own? What if I took a risk? What if I upended everyone’s idea of what my life should be? And what if I didn’t? Can you find fulfillment if you continue down this same road? If not, now is the time to think about where, and more importantly who, you truly want to be.

6 of Pentacles and The Tower
Dear Taurus, during this Gemini season, allow yourself to gracefully receive and allow others to help you during times of stress and difficulty, whether big or small.
The 6 of Pentacles depicts the flow of energy, of giving and receiving. The Tower speaks of upheavals, internal or external. They are usually unexpected, sometimes unnerving, but always in service to your highest good.
We all need help sometimes, we all need our friends, family, or partners to be there when things fall apart. For some, this is such a difficult thing to do, as they see compassion as a sign of weakness. Compassion and pity are not the same things. There is no glory in facing things alone or refusing support from our circle. This is simply an aspect of pride and ego.
Know when you need assistance—when you need to be held up. We are here for each other, not in a way that demands or feels codependent, but in a way that is truly loving, kind, and sincere.
Justice and 9 of Pentacles
Happy birthday, dear Gemini! During your birth season, allow yourself to enjoy your life now, no matter where you are or what your circumstance.
Justice is traditionally about law, cause and effect, and karma. What do you believe you deserve? Do you hold any judgments about a particular subject? The 9 of Pentacles is the card of luxury. The figure in this card dresses in finery, there is an air of leisure and prosperity. The fruits are ripe for picking. How do you feel about wealth and physical pleasure? Do you feel that you can have that scoop of ice cream only if you worked out five days this week? Or can you indulge in a healthy way? Realize that we are here, on this Earth, to learn lessons and evolve. And one of those lessons is that it is our divine right to enjoy life. We can enjoy the delicious foods, the fabulous vacations, the beautiful clothes.
Do you believe that the finest things in life are reserved only for the 1 percent? Do you glorify, or vilify, people with money? Understand that a person with more money does not make them better or worse. Likewise, you do not need money to feel worthy or deserving. With effort, you can shift your mindset and feel that way now.
5 of Cups and 8 of Pentacles
Dear Cancer, this Gemini season, allow yourself to rebuild, to pick yourself up after disappointments, to learn from the past and to keep on going.
The 5 of Cups depicts cups that have spilled, they are now empty and there is a sense of loss. However, not all have tipped over, there some still standing, still full. Even in despair, there is hope. The 8 of Pentacles is about diligence, hard work, and perseverance. No matter how high the mountain, or how far the distance, take it one step at a time, and believe in your own capabilities.
In the wise words of Aaliyah, “If at first you don’t succeed, dust yourself off and try again.” Failure is as important as victory. No one gains wisdom or character by living an easy, trouble-free life. We are forged by fire and tribulation. We have strength because we’ve experienced weakness, we know joy because of sorrow, we know ourselves because we know what didn’t align with us. Use the knowledge gained to heal yourself, to form a stronger foundation, and to work toward what truly matters to you.
Knight of Cups and The Star
Dear Leo, this Gemini season allow yourself to wear your heart on your sleeve, to radiate hope, positivity, and divine love.
The Knight of Cups is the poet, the artist, the romantic. He is the optimist. He is the love song that makes you smile, the piece of art that moves you to tears, the butterflies in your stomach. The Star is the connection to the divine, to Spirit. She is the light that guides you when you are lost. She is the prayer, the sign, that sense of blind faith, you don’t know how things will work out, but you just know that they will.
Let love be your north star. Show love in your own way. To your partner, to your friends, to your family, to a stranger, to yourself. Show them that there is still magic in the world. Show them that when in doubt, love is the answer. Love holds us together and love fills our souls. When we feel love, we feel alive. When we feel connected, we feel strong. Gestures, whether subtle or grand, will raise the frequency of the collective. Don’t overthink it, let your feelings inspire you.
3 of Pentacles and The Moon
Dear Virgo, this Gemini season allow yourself to be honest with others, and others to be honest with you, even when the truths are hard to swallow.
The 3 of Pentacles is the card of teamwork and cooperation. A group of people, working toward the same goal, everyone having their own responsibility. The Moon speaks to the hidden, the subconscious, the unspoken. It often invites us to spend time with our shadows, the parts that we hide from others, and the aspects of ourselves that are asking to be healed.
When working with others, know that everyone will have their issues. It’s about harmonizing, working through the difficulties, amplifying their strengths but being aware of all of our weaknesses. It’s about knowing your colleagues on a deeper level, to know what excites them, what makes them fearful, and how to energize each other to do the best job possible. Make a personal connection with the people you work with, you spend more time with them than you do your family, it’s important to know them beyond a surface level.
8 of Cups and 6 of Cups
Dear Libra, this Gemini season refocus your intention, and before you take another step, ask yourself where you are going and why.
The 8 of Cups shows a figure walking away from what was known. There is a sorrow, but also an understanding that there is something more that needs to be experienced. The 6 of Cups is the card of sweetness, generosity, reciprocal love. It shows a child giving flowers to another child, giving for the sake of giving, not expecting anything in return.
On your journey, what is moving you? It is okay to leave something behind in search of greener pastures, but if that thing you are looking for isn’t rooted in something real or something deep, you will continue to search and search until time passes you by. Look to how you can make the world a better place, if not the world, then your friend, your family, your community. Look to how you can spread love, how you can give to others, how you can uplift others. Look within, look for your soul’s purpose.
This Tarot card can help you say yes to life.
King of Wands and 9 of Cups
Dear Scorpio, this Gemini season create your own magic, forge your own path, and make your own wishes come true.
The King of Wands is the passionate leader. He infuses you with energy, and drive. He is confident, inspiring, and courageous. He does not follow a path already taken, he creates his own, not out of pride, but because he knows there is more to do and more to discover. The 9 of Cups is foremost a card of fulfillment and satiety. It’s that feeling of having everything you need at that moment—you are full of gratitude for all your blessings.
We can spend our whole lives waiting for something to happen. The King of Wands does not want you to wait. Rather, he invites you to believe in your own power and to create your own manifest destiny. He asks that you follow what excites you, even if others don’t approve. He urges you to find fulfillment through self-empowerment, through individuality and self-realization. In the end, he wants you to be full of gratitude for the choices you have made, and the person you have become.
King of Swords and Page of Swords
Dear Sagittarius, this Gemini season allow yourself to be both student and master, understanding that you have much to teach, and much to learn.
The King of Swords is the master of intellect. He has a powerful mind, constantly thinking about improvement, organization, efficiency, and productivity. The Page of Swords is the diligent student, eager to learn and to understand how the world works. The Page of Swords strives to challenge what is known, not to ruffle feathers, but to find the deeper truth.
The greatest leaders, thinkers, inventors, writers in history never stopped learning. They shared their knowledge and were pioneers in the world of thought—but they never claimed to know everything there is to know. They found wisdom in everything. Allow wisdom to come in all forms. Just because you are the director, it does not mean that the associate has nothing they can teach you. When you are humble, there is no limit to how much you can learn. When you commit to becoming a lifelong student, you open your world and your perspective in infinite ways.
7 of Wands and 3 of Swords
Dear Capricorn, this Gemini season allow yourself fight for and defend your most sacred possession, your heart.
7 of Wands is the card of courage, standing up for what is right, and fighting your way through difficult situations. The 3 of Swords is the card of heartbreak and sorrow. It is that very real pain in your chest, when you feel completely broken and shattered. Do not continue to go back into situations that you know are painful. Sometimes the pain becomes a source of comfort, because it is so familiar. Fight, my dear Capricorn. Fight for your inner peace, fight for your healing, fight for your happiness.
If it’s a person that causes you pain, set clear and powerful boundaries. If it’s a job that causes you pain, do not continue to suffer silently, voice your concerns to take steps to look for that next step. Do not give up, do not sit there and take it. That pain is your body telling you to make a move, to gather the strength within to make a change. You must rescue yourself. You must be your own hero.
King of Cups and 2 of Pentacles
Dear Aquarius, this Gemini season allow yourself to feel deeply and completely.
The King of Cups hold the power of emotional maturity. He understands that to heal, you must feel. He is at one with his emotions, allowing them to bring their messages, and then letting them go. The 2 of Pentacles is the card of multitasking, balancing, and prioritizing. It can also be about trying to fill many roles at once, wearing many hats and juggling responsibilities.
Do not bury your emotions—integrate them, listen to them, and let them flow through you. You don’t have to choose between being a functioning adult in this world and being a feeling and self-compassionate being. People are often so busy, so occupied with finishing everything on the to-do list, that they don’t address their emotional well-being. What they don’t realize is that taking care of your heart and soul will allow you to be more efficient, because you will know which tasks are superfluous and which truly matter.
The World and Ace of Swords
Dear Pisces, this Gemini season allow yourself to feel whole, and understand that wholeness is not an end journey, it’s a practice, a way of being.
The World is the card of completion. There is a sense of inner peace, triumph, and honor. It can signify the successful execution of a project or the culmination of a lifelong dream. The Ace of Swords is the card of breakthroughs, brilliant. ideas, and profound epiphanies. Often, I hear people ask when will I be happy? When will I meet the love of my life? When will I have my dream job, my dream house, my dream car? We look to things outside of ourselves to complete us. If we continue this pattern, we will never be satisfied, we will always feel empty and lacking. It is okay to strive for these things, but understand that they are additions to, and not the source of that feeling of fulfillment.
The truth is that there is nothing outside of us that can make us feel whole. It may temporarily, but it will be short-lived. We have to find wholeness within, it is a lifelong journey as we continue to learn about ourselves even through old age. How does one begin this journey? Look to the things you feel are lacking and be truthful about why you want these things. Look to the ways you act inauthentically, in order to satisfy or impress others. Look to your judgments, look to your shadows, look to your fears. Look to where others cannot, look to doors only you have the keys to. These are the places
we find wholeness, these are the places we retrieve aspects of ourselves that have been lost, and these are the places we find parts of ourselves that are broken—and they are yearning to be healed so we may be whole.
