GEMINI - "I THINK THEREFORE I AM."
Mercury is in Gemini from May 29, 2018 at 7:49 PM EDT until June 12, 2018 at 4:00 PM EDT. Mercury stands for the intellect, common sense, cold reason, commerce and business. Its qualities are fluidity and versatility. Its position and aspects tell us about our communication and learning habits and our modes of thinking. The house that Mercury occupies in your Natal Chart or Solar Return is where these characteristics will manifest the most.
Here is a nice little piece of Mercury trivia for you. Mercury will never be more than one Sun Sign away from the Sun. This means someone who has their Sun in Gemini, will have their Mercury within 1 Sun Sign on either side of Gemini or it will be in the sign of Gemini. This means there are only three possibilities that a Gemini Sun Sign individual might have their Mercury in -- Mercury in Taurus, Mercury in Gemini or Mercury in Cancer. This helps you guess someone's Mercury even if you don't know their exact birthdate but you know their Sun Sign. You can pretty much rule out Mercury in the opposite sign (Sagittarius) or the four signs on each side Sagittarius (Capricorn, Aquarius, Pisces, Aries) and (Leo, Virgo, Libra, Scorpio).
Mercury is in its 'home placement' in Gemini because Mercury naturally rules Gemini, making this its strongest placement. Mercury in Gemini is pure rational and logical reasoning. Gemini is the brainiac of the zodiac, so Mercury in Gemini brings about scientific and factual thought.
You may hear the words, "That makes sense" quite a bit during this transit. Things have to make sense for this placement or it can not be sold. In other words, Mercury in Gemini can be a hard sell if the product or item does not make any logical sense to them. Mercury in Gemini is crazy about thinking, so the more complex, the better the mind wrestle. For writers, this is the perfect time to release new writing or give a speech.
Gemini is the sign of the salesman, the self-promotor, the great communicator, the marketer, the gadget guru, the juggler, the one who shows up here, there and everywhere. Gemini is also the opposite sign of Sagittarius. While Sagittarius is the talker, Gemini is the listener. While Gemini can certainly talk up a storm, you will also see Gemini fall completely silent and you can see the cogwheels churn in their brain as they are processing information. Do not push on this Gemini energy as it is processing or you will get answers or output you really don't want to hear. Leave the machine alone while it is thinking.
Gemini naturally rules the nervous system, so with Mercury moving through Gemini this will create a sensitivity to the nervous system. External stimulation is processed quickly and intensely. In fact, the more stimulation the better. Gemini is quite capable of entertaining two completely different thoughts at once, like watching TV and listening to the radio at the same time.
This placement is an extremely curious placement, which could easily cause you to bite off more than you can chew. It would be like loading up a flimsy paper plate with heavy food. Something is bound to fall off and get wasted. Make certain you do not spread yourself too thin during this transit. Those who have Mercury in Gemini in their Natal Chart or Solar Return may have problems dividing their time into several projects, which normally comes fairly easy to a full blown Sun in Gemini individual. This would be the individual who takes on so many projects that they are all half complete fulfilling the Gemini saying, "Jack of all trades, master of none."
Make certain you do not run your mouth on and on and on about trivial nonsense. This transit will cause people to become easily bored and annoyed with incessant talking that means nothing. Sagittarius, Gemini's opposite sign is the sign that will typically fill in every moment of silence with a word. Gemini not only talks, it listens as well. Listening and silence are very Good under this sign. Gemini knows that a huge part of Good communication involves listening. When you see a Gemini listen, they will nod their head in understanding and you can literally see the cogwheels churning in their head.
When Mercury in Gemini does get on a roll talking, they might forget what they were talking about in the first place because they have so many different subjects to draw on. "Uhhhh, what was I saying?" Since I am a Gemini, this is when I typically write the most amount of information at record speed. Gemini is the sign of the messenger, the writer, the reporter, announcer and communicator, so for that, I am jazzed! Stay Astrologized™.
