Gemini: May 21st - June 21st, is symbolized by the Twins, those playful, mischievous little beings that speak perfectly to the heart of a Gemini! The most playful, and devious, sign of the Zodiac, Gemini has the energy of two people, and all the diverse interests and urges that go with it.
A Mutable Air Sign that's ruled by Mercury, the communication planet, Gemini is all about communication and the intellect. This sign's best friend is someone who will stay up late with them, discussing everything under the sun. Quick-witted and highly observant, Geminis don't miss much; they have an agile sense of humor and a real need for freedom -- intellectual, romantic and otherwise.
That's right, Geminis like to play around a lot, including in their love life. There are just so many interesting people out there! And this sign gets bored fast. Plus, Geminis tend to intellectualize their feelings, so they're not much for sentimentalism and deep, gooey emotional bonding (ick!).
Geminis can also be indecisive, precisely because they have so many divergent interests and urges that they may not know which one to follow first. As a result, they can be wishy-washy, changing their minds with zero notice. But what they lack in steadfastness, they make up in spades in excitement.
This sign has the well-deserved reputation of the life of the party, and is also extra fun to have along on a road trip, a visit to the bookstore or the theater...well, anywhere, really!
Geminis make great writers, journalists and photographers.
The retrograde Mercury in Gemini is a slippery influence that wreaks havoc on our information dependent society. Words have a way of being misconstrued or misunderstood during conversations. Sentences you speak have another meaning than the one you originally intended.
It almost seems as if you are speaking a different language than the person you are conversing with. What you can truly depend on, during this time, is that you can't depend on anything running smoothly.
Language, in all its various constructs, can be a quite a challenge. This includes writing, programming, and foreign languages. Speak slower and listen harder.
And don't think your computer is exempt from this planetary influence either. After all, our PCs are the great purveyors of information to us through the web. It too will frustrate you with crashes, loss of data, and general orneriness. Backup your files!
When you are frustrated enough to pull the plug on your computer and your mouth, stand back for a moment, and stop. Reroute your activities. Edit reports, rework passages on essays or articles, reread computer manuals for troubleshooting. Reconcile and apologize. Or watch a comedy with friends. In short, go with the flow, not against it.

During the Gemini Full Moon, you may be pleasantly surprised by the progress you are making with the project you initiated during the New Moon. Additional insights can make your endeavor seem even more worthwhile, once you incorporate them.
You’ll have a sense of accomplishment once you are able to share what you've learned with others. No doubt, people will be impressed by what you tell them. Your quest for knowledge can be personally fulfilling once the answers come to you, and you get a chance to show off just a little.
You can be rather talkative and very social, full of wit and charm. Make sure that you spend time in the company of others, for your astute opinions should not go unexpressed. You appreciate your independence more fully during this time.
It would be better to schedule activities with friends instead of romantic dates because you may not feel particularly open to the burdens that love relationships can sometimes entail.
You may feel the most happy with an excellent book in front of your face. You may also take this time to consider ways to rein in runaway thoughts and nervous tension if you are prone to them. Give up a bad mental habit as the moon begins to wane.

The New Moon in Gemini stirs up a plethora of fancies in your head; so many, in fact, that you may walk into a wall if you don't pay attention to where you're going! Those who find you staring off into space think you are in a fog belt, when you are actually immobilized by thoughts of a gazillion possibilities.
You won't need too much outside stimulation to incite more activity in your head, you've got plenty of your own. Maybe there is a best-selling novel brewing in your brain that begs to be brought to life. Maybe you're thinking about learning some new languages. You may even want to learn something new and completely different.
During this lunar influence, you won't be short on ideas. Your main challenge is to pick and choose the ones that are most pragmatic and beneficial to you at this time. Then, begin the process of turning fancies into realities.
You should spend some time alone and meditate on your options, even though you may be eager to share your feelings and thoughts. Any person in your company will get an earful, probably more than they can keep up with. You may not have it all worked out before you take those first baby steps, but making firm decisions will be half the battle for you.
