Gemini, the sign represented by twins, runs May 21 – June 20. People born under this sign are notorious for changing their minds as quickly as they change their mood. The two personalities sometimes keep you guessing because you never know for certain which side of a gemini you will face. These traits sometimes make them come across as hyper and restless, but there’s more to a gemini than meets the eye. What does this season mean for gemini and the rest of us?

Personality

Always up for fun and adventure, you will usually find a gemini surrounded by friends. But sometimes the other twin shows up with introspective, serious contemplation. A gemini is not shy to express his or her feelings or opinions on a matter, but they also take prerogative to change their minds as frequently as they want. They are strong communicators who excel at art, writing, and team sports. Because gemini seek out excitement, spontaneity, playfulness, and variety, they are often slow to settle down. But once they find the right person, be it a partner or friend, they are fiercely faithful and committed to the relationship.

Geminis are often dreamers with big ideas. They are seekers of knowledge and usually love reading. They resist conformity and challenge the rules. Gemini dislike the mundane and find it difficult to be still. As such, they excel at multitasking, problem solving, and bringing new ideas to life. Life is never boring with a gemini.

Let Loose and Allow Your Inner Gemini to Come Out and Play

As the sun transits Gemini, we’re all thrust into a period of energy and motion. If you feel discombobulated, scattered, or generally all-over-the-place, this could be the reason why. Gemini is a time of highs and lows, and sometimes this brings drama and contradiction into our lives as well. This is not the time to make important decisions, but rather to gather information and understanding.

This season also activates our curious nature and our desire to talk and live and communicate. Gemini season begs you to be flexible, often much more flexible than you’re prepared to be. Go with the flow and allow your creative side to flourish. Give in to the urge to be more spontaneous and fun. Explore your hidden wild side.

The Throat Chakra

The throat chakra governs our ability to communicate, so it’s no surprise that this is the strongest chakra for geminis. This chakra is about expressing yourself: Your truth, purpose in life, and creativity. Another function of the throat chakra is to connect you to your spirit. Because of its location, it’s often the “bottleneck” of the movement of energy in the body. Opening the throat chakra can help align your vision with reality and release pressure that may affect the heart chakra located just below.

An overactive throat chakra can make a person talk too much or share their opinion too much. Gossiping, lying, and the inability to keep secrets are common when the throat chakra is too abundant. On the other hand, when the throat chakra is low, extreme shyness or inability to speak out prevail. Balancing this chakra promotes effective, appropriate communicate and reminds you when it’s time to listen.

Crystals and Stones

Stones that support the throat chakra are well-suited during the gemini season. Additionally, stones that bring mental clarity and focus can help reign in some of the erratic gemini energy.

  • Tiger’s Eye
  • Citrine
  • Apatite
  • Green Tourmaline
  • Aquamarine
  • Chrysoprase
  • Serpentine

Essential Oils

Essential oils that relax and tame erratic energy are great during this season to help you feel more grounded. Gemini are prone to respiratory illness, so oils that support the respiratory system are also beneficial.

  • Bergamot
  • Eucalyptus
  • Basil
  • Grapefruit
  • Ginger
  • Neroli
