Gemini is the third sign in the Zodiac. This is why it's the communicator & the curious explorer. It's the buzzing bee & the squirrel running around gathering nuts as Spring starts to turn to Summer. Notice how whiteness has made us focus on a lack mindset rather than an abundant mindset when it comes to gathering resources AND information. Yes, Gemini can be focused on the surface of the topic & appear a bit vapid or flippant, but its job is to gather up all the data NOT to validate all of it. Gemini can be two-faced or indecisive but that's because its job is to stir up ideas & new info so we never get too settled or complacent. As you study Gemini make sure you don't allow the steady stream of flippant keywords distract you from its curious, collaborative nature. We must allow the Gemini part of us (and others) to be able to express both sides to be complete. The orator on the soapbox telling fish tales as if they were facts hasn't done their ShadowWeRK. An orator who speaks to entertain and/or educate with the caveat that everything always changes is a balanced Gemini.

Seasonal Gemini :
Gemini is the brightest part of spring when we prepare for the first fruits to ripen. We notice new berries are all around. The birds & bees are buzzing, our ideas are pinging & our hands are busy making ready for Summer to arrive. Flowering plants explode & we see color pops, dots & flashes everywhere. The air is crisp & crackling with electricity. We’re learning new things & coming together to socialize in the warming weather & sparkly sunshine. We all wear our brightest blue, silver & neon colors. Stark patterns & funny slogans pop up everywhere, attracting others to communicate with us.
