Light-winged messenger Mercury is the planet that swings closest to the Sun, speeding through a single sign of the Zodiac in around 3-4 weeks.

In the art of Astrology, this small spinning celestial ball activates our communication styles. It affects how we connect with others whilst also influencing how we think, travel, move and process information… not much then!

But what’s worth knowing, is that in addition to the position of this planet in your natal astrology chart, Mercury has a daily influence on our collective horoscope, determined on its current Zodiac sign, plus any major aspects it makes and of course…. whether it’s currently moving direct, or in retrograde motion (the horror!)

When Mercury spins through Gemini, the quick and restless mutable air sign of the Zodiac mandala, what does it mean for the collective?

As Gemini’s ruling planet (along with sister sign Virgo) here, Mercury is at home.

Under this sky, we all tend to feel like life’s accelerating.

Expect your mind to move at 100 mph, as thoughts, facts, figures, and opinions all stream through you at lightning speed. This transit can make us feel chatty and confident and for some, totally incapable of keeping your lips closed! Been holding onto a secret? Not for much longer… Mercury in Gemini doesn’t know how to.

Logic Rules

As a sign (and planet) that oversees the workings of the mind, you’re unlikely to feel emotionally guided over the next couple of weeks. Logic rules and so does the last thing somebody said to you… until you strike up another unexpected conversation and get taken on yet another tangent..! So you can expect, also, to feel a little scattered under this quick-witted transit – it’s very common to get bored easily and start peering around for something else to do. This is the astrological signature of a thousand open tabs on your desktop, and the relentless pinging of your mobile as everybody’s multitasking to the hilt, flitting between one interest and the next.

Quick-Changing Decisions

You’ll probably find other people changing their minds and opinions with frustrating speed, making it near impossible to pin anyone down. Decisions can shift quickly, as new information flows in, so adaptability is key.

The energy of Gemini is curious, open-minded and experimental, so be willing to learning a new skill and doing things differently during this time. Try taking an evening class or joining an online mastermind. Just make sure you’re not committing yourself for longer than a couple of months… when the trickster planet moves on, that advanced aerial acrobatics night class may not have quite the same appeal!

Three to four times a year Mercury moves retrograde through the skies, unleashing an (often unjust!) fear across the conscious and astrologically-minded community. Is Mercury retrograde right now? Here are the dates to watch out for in 2019:

  • March 3rd – 28th (through Pisces)
  • July 7th – August 1st (through Leo/Cancer)
  • October 31st – November 20th (through Scorpio)
