Gemini Season Retrograde style

It’s GEMINI Season re-run 2022.

Gemini season Retrograde starts  May 20 at 6:23 pm PDT, 9:23 pm EDT/ May 21 at 2:23 am GMT with MERCURY the ruler of Gemini {and Virgo} RETROGRADE at 4 degrees Gemini.

You know what that means reviewing all that double talking, double flirting, social butterfly, scatter brained, chatty, ruled by the fancy fleet-footed, hatted and sandaled messenger of the Gods – MERCURY, known as HERMES to the Greeks and THOTH to the Egyptians. 

A whole lotta Gemini going on a double-double double Gemini season. 

MERCURY used to be in thermometers, whose properties made it hard to pin down, describe Gemini’s energies perfectly. Quicksilver is also a toxic poison and a well-known Alchemical metal as well. Mercury’s metal is Mercury or QUICKSILVER like Gemini energies. The Quicksilver Messenger Service were a band in the 60’s.

Mercury is a PSYCHOPOMP. I love that word able to enter and leave the Land of the Dead, Hades or the Underworld. Few had this power.

Mercury Retrogrades back to Taurus on May 22  at 9:15 pm EDT dragging us back through the BS, communications, conversations, world and financially issues we were dealing with at the end of April as Mercury entered Gemini, April 29 just before the first Eclipse of 22 April 30 at 10 degrees Taurus.

Note that Mercury’s 2nd of 4 Retrogrades of the year ends June 3rd  with Mercury at 26+ degrees TAURUS which is opposite that Heavy SCORPIO SUPER BLOOD MOON on May 15/16. So, expect a bucking bull kick of that energy too. If you didn’t catch it the first time, you will the 2nd time.

MERCURY retrograde conjunct the SUN May 21 at 12:18 pm PDT/ 3:18 pm EDT this is a Mercury Cazimi very auspicious to meditate to tune into this energy as the Planet of communications is bathed in the sun’s golden heart at 00 GEMINI, indicating new ideas, communications, texts, analysis and  seeing things from both sides. This is a good thing.

Mercury’s symbol is the caduceus. Not just an FTD Florist symbol, every MD in the world uses the caduceus to signify the healing profession of MEDICINE. The caduceus was originally employed by Chiron and Asclepius as snakes were used to help heal people in Ancient Greece and Snakes were used in the Oracles at DELPHI. Considered to be magical animals of the Goddess since always, two snakes entwined around the central staff or spine is KUNDALINI sexual energy.  The caduceus is an ancient symbol of DNA; symbolizes the twin poles of consciousness, balance and the combining of opposites as in ALCHEMY to produce something entirely new. This is a deep psychological image associated with GEMINI and mental health. not usually associated with this sign.

Gemini is a dual AIR sign, and they never get old as long as their minds are stimulated.  I’ve been watching Paul McCartney on Tour now at 79 on YouTube, Paul is the most Gemini person in the world, and he will be 80 on June 18th and still rocking and singing shows for almost 3 hours.

 Mercury is the frequent flyer and chief communicator between Mount Olympus, the above, the Conscious and the below.

“Gemini—represented by twins—embraces duality and is all
about having fun. Gemini thrives on change and can’t stand too much sameness.”

Unconscious, Mercury/Hermes is a mediator, a listener, an eavesdropper, a go-between. In modern days, a MERCURY ruled person, and we all are, is a compulsive twitterer or FB junkie whose iPhone never leaves their body.

Mercury in the TAROT  is  the # 1 symbol, THE MAGICIAN /TRICKSTER

famous as COYOTE wisdom in Native American legends.

When your mind plays tricks on you…guess who is to blame?

HERMES is a hermaphrodite; His name means HERMES & APHRODITE Mercury is both male HERMES and a female VENUS/APHRODITE. 

The sign’s ruling planet comes HOME- when a planet is at home it feels, relaxed, in its own element, STRONG. Mercury in Gemini  stimulates nanosecond thinking, uber talking- hope you have a great chat plan during these Gemini times

 PETER PAN is GEMINI’s God

Peter Pan is a symbol of what Psychologists called PEUR mentality. A childlike, fun time, curious and non-committal.  There may be much mental Ado about not much during Gemini times. Gemini loves to play devils’ advocate.

But you got to love ’em, they are very charming and move too fast for you to pin them down. Yes, social butterflies those Gemini’s are…

Their main thrust during GEMINI season is to gather information, move like the wind, gather info, be mentally stimulated, ever young, upbeat, charming as hell.

Mercury is the God of merchants, the word Mercury is contained in that word, Thieves, pirates, travelling and snake-oil salesman,  Gemini’s are actors,  open, changeable, quick-witted, exciting, philanderers, shysters,

VENUS is, of course, Retrograde in Gemini

so, can’t make up your mind between Frank, Harry, or Justin?   or which job to take? or which school to go to or which….or that old friend/ lover enemy, frenemy just re-entered your life again, what to do about that? or what to do…

 If only they/we can get over the tendency to do one or the other ANGEL or DEVIL  DUALITY is their thing, But the TWINS are not opposites but complementary pairs. 

In the TAROT the symbol of GEMINI is associated with THE LOVERS

and the opposite sign of GEMINI is SAGITTARIUS which is associated with ALCHEMY again back to HERMES/ MERCURY
