What does Gemini season mean for us? Gemini is a chatty, mutable sign that loves to connect. The Sun is in the sign of Gemini this year from May 20 to June 20. Spring is now transforming into Summer for when we reach the solstice point of 0º Cancer. So this is an exciting time of the year as by now it should be feeling like we can safely keep the central heating off for a few months and start to hang our washing outdoors. Yep, with May we dust off our winged sandals and get a lot more mobile.
This is the time to come out of hibernation and get very social. Gemini is an air sign and loves to flit about from flower to flower and flirt like crazy. Any social distancing that is enforced is going to be intolerable for affectionate Gemini’s as we head into June. By now we are all absolutely desperate to get busy and buzzy again.
Gemini Season Meaning
Gemini rules local travel and community so it absolutely HAS to social network. But we are not talking online as Gemini is hugely tactile. Cyber friends and zoom chats are for Aquarians… Instead, Gemini, with its crazy hand gestures wants to poke and prod all your wobbly bits..
So what does this season bring in terms of nature? The traditional flower for Gemini is Lavender and Lilly of the valley. Lavender because its aroma can permeate a large area, the plant itself spreads far and wide and faces all directions, just like a Gemini!
May birthday flower Lily Of the Valley falls under the protection of Hermes for the Greeks and Mercury for the Romans so it totally fits with Gemini season. Its sweet little flowers resemble bells and the flower itself is associated with purity and chastity. It has a very childlike and innocent feel about it. Gemini is a very youthful sign generally and here we are in a very fertile, nubile period of the year when everything is in full blossom.
Gemini falls in-between the cross-quarter festivals so there is no Pagan feast day to refer to during this season. We are just waiting for the summer solstice and Litha which I will talk about next month.
The crystals that are associated with Gemini season are those that support the throat chakra. Mercury retrograde is the ideal time to heal blockages around the throat area and speak your truth! Release any blockages and fear surrounding expression by wearing Amazonite, Turquoise, Aquamarine or Lapis Lazuli around your neck.
How Gemini Season Affects Each Zodiac Sign
One size does not fit all, and Gemini season will be better for some signs than others. Check out my “How DOES astrology work?” post to explain why this is. We all have our different ‘Achieve, Receive and Recycle’ periods, so some of the signs will have more going on than others in certain months.
