Sun in Gemini ~ May 20 to June 21, 2010

The Sun breaks away from Taurus' need for security and comfort as he enters Gemini on May 20 at 11:34 p.m. EDT, where he remains until June 21. The Sun represents our external drive, our potential, our conscious will. In Taurus, the Sun is somewhat cautious, practical, grounded, determined, dependable, and driven by material security. In Gemini, the Sun is social, gregarious, cerebral, intelligent, witty, and driven by intellectual and experiential pursuits. At best, the Sun in Gemini is easygoing, understanding, curious, funny, solutions-oriented. At worst, indecisive, non-committal, shallow, unfocused, duplicitous.

Gemini is the original multi-tasker of the zodiac. They can get at least twice the amount of action items done in less time than most people; and they can't quite sit still. Their minds are just as busy and are often thinking of something completely different from whatever actual conversations they are seemingly engrossed in. Geminis are without a doubt intelligent people, but to keep them interested in friendships and other interpersonal relations, mental stimulation is a MUST. Animated and engaged interactions required. Otherwise, it's easy to 'check out' and move on to the next interesting thing, person, topic, object, whatever :)

The Sun in Gemini reminds us that there is more than one way to do things or get to a destination. There are always other points of view to consider and some may be just as credible or feasible as the existing norm, other ideas in development, our personal opinions, etc. Knowledge can be gained from anywhere -- books, people, ideas; it's all around. Even the simplest of concepts can make an impact. A whisper can evoke a loud response. A chance meeting can evolve into a beautiful friendship. A heated debate can produce enough passion to effect a course of action that ultimately results in a change -- hopefully, for the better. Thoughts are valuable. Exchange of ideas are essential for growth, improvement and change, as well as pleasure.

While in Gemini, the Sun will align with the following celestial bodies (all dates reflect North America Eastern time zone; give +/-2 days for life span of influence):
  • May 26 ~ Sun quincunx Pluto-rx. Uncovering what's hidden. Difficult truths to accept. Adjust the mind and expectations to more practical or real terms.
  • May 27 ~ Full Moon in Sagittarius at 7:07 p.m. EDT. Uranus also enters Aries on this day, triggering a major celestial event.
  • June 12 ~ New Moon in Gemini at 7:15 a.m. EDT.
  • June 19 ~ Sun square Saturn-rx and trine Neptune-rx. Reality vs. dreams. Ideal for seeing what's illusory and what's true. Don't get discouraged if your dreams seem unreachable. Saturn's job is show you the reality of the situation so you can make better judgements and wiser decisions regarding your course of action. Neptune's job is keep the dream and hope alive. Commit to your dreams by dedicating yourself to the hard work and tough choices ahead.

What significance do planets, signs, and houses have in astrology? Planets have the function, the job to do. The style/manner they will use get that job done is defined by the zodiac sign they occupy. Where in our life the job gets done is determined by the house the planet occupies/transits. So, when Mars (aggression) is in Aries (bold), he is more assertive than when he is in Cancer (sensitive). When traveling through the 10th house (professional life), he may bring his confidence and motivation in matters relating to our career. While in the 11th house (friendships), we may be more inclined to having our social calendar packed with activities. Having the foresight for what may be coming up or receiving confirmation on what may be happening now are ways astrology can be beneficial ... as above, so below.
