On May 21st, the Sun in Gemini meets up with transiting Mercury in Gemini. This astrological energy will make us chatty and social. However, it is important to remember that Mercury is currently retrograde in Gemini. This means that although there is this increased desire to socialize with others and collect information, there could be some snafus when trying to communicate. So, if you’re willing to just keep all communications and associations light and not take anyone and/or any information too seriously, you’ll be able to enjoy this light-hearted, sociable Sun in Gemini conjunct Mercury in Gemini transit.
Enjoy Some Conversation
Even with Mercury retrograde, this Sun and Gemini moving together in the Gemini won’t keep the communication and socializing. Gemini energy increases the gift of gab and the opportunity to connect with those closest to us and to new people as well. Now that it is springtime, the energy is perfect to get out there and explore our surroundings. So even with Mercury retrograde in its home sign of Gemini, it is still possible to enjoy the sociable, engaging energy that this astrological aspect has to offer. However, due to the retrograde motion of Mercury, we may want to be cognizant of the information that we receive and share at this time. Retrograde energy has a way of returning information back to us for reconsideration. Just a heads up.

Connect with Siblings & Extended Family
Gemini rules the third house in astrology which governs siblings and extended family such as cousins, aunts, uncles, etc. If you haven’t seen your siblings and/or extended family in a while, this is a perfect time to pay them a visit and/or contact them just to catch up! Make time for some lengthy discussions as Sun/Mercury conjunct in Gemini will have everyone thoroughly engaged in conversation.
Due to the retrograde of Mercury in Gemini, this may also be a good time to do some reconnecting if there have been some rifts and/or time apart from siblings and extended family members. Again, due to the retrograde energy of Mercury, it is important to be careful what you say at this time to avoid any miscommunications. If you’re already not speaking to family members and siblings, the last thing you want to do is cause more harm than good by saying the wrong thing and/or having what you say taken out of context due to miscommunication.
If it all fails and you feel like you really just can’t communicate with your siblings and family at this time, it may just be best to pass and spend your time socializing with close friends or just meeting new people.
Explore Your Surroundings
Gemini also governs the relationship with the immediate environment-your local neighborhood and the town that you live in. This Sun and Mercury conjunction in Gemini encourages us to get out and explore our surroundings. Gemini also represents short distance trips, so if you’ve been wanting to get away for a short getaway now is a good time! Just another heads up that with Mercury retrograde you may encounter delays with transportation whether it be car trouble or delays and cancellations. However, don’t let that stop you from getting out there and enjoying this energy. You might just be pleasantly surprised at what new things you’ll discover right under your nose in your own hometown.
Embrace Verstility & Keep An Open Mind
The one thing about Gemini energy is that they are always up for a good time, and with this conjunction in Gemini, you better believe that there’s always something to consider. This heightened Gemini energy asks that we embrace versatility. Being rigid and inflexible makes it difficult to have the free-flowing, easy communicative interactions that we desire at this time. Likewise, Gemini has an open mind. This is a sign that is very willing to make space for ideas and concepts that are different than its own due to Gemini’s innate curiosity. So, to get the most out of this energy, it’s best to consider something that we have never thought of before. There’s no limit on what you’ll learn and experience by keeping an open mind.
There’s the saying that curiosity killed the cat, but in the case of the Sun in Gemini conjunct Mercury in Gemini, curiosity is what keeps us alive and fresh. When you approach every situation and person with curiosity there is a sense of discovery everywhere you go. That’s the energy of Gemini, especially with this highlighted Sun and Mercury in Gemini. With the Mercury retrograde, don’t believe everything you hear, and be careful about what you say. Other than that, Sun and Mercury conjunct Gemini is great for curious engagement. Enjoy!
