Sun in Gemini ~ May 21 to June 20, 2011

The Sun represents our external drive, our potential, our conscious will. In Taurus, where the Sun has been for past 4 weeks, he 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.

This year, the Sun begins his transit in Gemini on May 21 at 2:21 a.m. PDT / 5:21 a.m. EDT, where he remains until June 20th. Mercury joins the Sun in Gemini on June 2, and Venus follows suit on June 9.
