MERCURY IN GEMINI: MAY 24-AUGUST 2ND
Mr. Quicksilver, the trickster, moves into Gemini on May 24th and goes to its home base re-kindling communication, writing and intellectual inquiry. It is a complicated transit because it moves toward conjunction with Rahu into May 28th and is within a three degree orb May 26-30th and then it goes retrograde June 17-July 12th. Benefic retrogrades are more powerful particularly for Gemini and Virgo rising but this one is happening in the constellation of Ardra (Gemini 6.40-20.00) which can whip up storm and we wonder if Tornado season will be tricky this year. Mercury is mostly in Ardra after June 23rd and this will be more complicated and create more scams and computer virus problems and electrical problems and so be careful.
Firstly, Mercury moves into the star constellation of Mrigashira know by the West as Orion (Taurus 23.20-Gemini 6.40) known as the constellation of Orion and stays there until May 29th and and will channel Mars and this can lead to disputes so do not get into arguments while you are driving and find an outlet to release anger when things do not happen as quickly as you would like. There is also the exact conjunction with Rahu into May 28th. While Rahu will benefit from Mercury’s intelligence with craft and brilliant insights, people ruled by Mercury may find too much mental craziness going on in the mind May 26-30th.
Still Mercury in Gemini will promote writing and so spend some time with your journal if your mind is full of chatter and work through any inner disruptive thoughts. Great few months for writing your book, developing your blog or getting out those You Tube Videos.
Virgos and Geminis will have mostly results from the transit with Mercury at home and will flourish with deep thought and wisdom during the transit into Purnavasu (Gemini 20-Cancer 3.20) June 14-22nd and again July 26-August 3rd. Mercury here can be drawn to spiritual wisdom and seeking deeper spiritual knowledge.
People in a Mercury dashas or sub-period will notice the complexity of this transit more as but still transits are 20% of timing and all is contextual to the larger cycles you are running. The solar eclipse on June 21st is in Gemini and so Mercury’s transit there will create complication but as a natural benefic with strength.
