Sometimes legends make reality, and become more useful than the facts.

Happy Birthday, Gemini
This morning, at 10:37am, Eastern time, the Sun says goodbye to Taurus and enters Gemini, sign of the Twins.
Chatty, smart, funny, whiz-kid Geminis – where would we all be without your brilliant, cutting edge minds?
A much less informed world, that’s for certain.
Generally, people born under this sign are data collectors and trivia experts who keep an amazing amount of information about the strangest things in their brains. They are wonderful with words and scary-smart! They are true eclectics, following the creed that says, “The eclectic only steals from the very best.”
Geminis generally go with the flow and are very flexible with whatever is happening around them. However, this adaptability and their innate curiosity about, well, everything, can make it sometimes challenging for them to stay focused and see things through to completion.
Easily jumping from one subject to another, Geminis can forget that others are not so nimble. They often have to be reminded to slow down and let others catch up with what they’re talking about.
They also have to be reminded to stop talking once in a while and listen.
You will probably notice that your Gemini friends are the networkers in your communities. But Gemini needs to watch out for a tendency to be gossipy and in everybody’s business. Their intentions are rarely malicious, though, and their ebullient personalities will eventually charm everyone’s forgiveness.
Telepathy and multitasking come naturally to a Gemini. They love to blog, Tweet, write, and communicate their magical experiences, and they are born poets. And when they jump in and finish your sentences for you, they don’t mean to be rude — it’s actually a form of Gemini affection.
They simply love to be connected, and are usually technology wizards. They’re the ones who are constantly fiddling with their cutting edge smart phone and checking in on email. You can almost bet that the friend of yours who is always the first one to snap up the newest, coolest gadgets and toys is a Gemini.
And I like to think that Jiminy Cricket, “Pinocchio’s conscience, lord high keeper of the knowledge of right and wrong, counselor in moments of high temptation, and guide along the straight and narrow path,” as he was dubbed in the Disney movie, is actually a Gemini!
Who better to make a wish upon a star?
For all of us, when the Sun is in Gemini
(May 20-June 20, 2016)
This is a great time to get out, travel, learn new things, exercise your curiosity, and re-connect with friends for some long, juicy catching up. Face-to-face is preferred to online chatting, although as I mentioned, Gemini’s influence loves technology. So if you must Skype or Instagram, go for it!
Keep in mind, though, that this Gemini period is starting at the tail end of an unusually fractious Mercury retrograde. With a retrograde in its own sign, this is a less than ideal time to fiddle with your communications tools and other tech gear, and double-check travel plans.
Luckily, thankfully, blessedly, the planet of technology, communication and travel stations direct at long last this Sunday, the 22nd, and things should improve.
While the Sun is in Gemini for the next thirty days, conditions are favorable for learning and studies of all kinds.
This is one contributing reason why, for many centuries, Spring final exams have been held in late May and early June in Western countries. This time favors communications, and all enterprises that are opportunistic and flexible in nature.
Remember that Gemini is super-sociable, so throw a little shindig and gather with friends. Plus, Gemini is the sign of the Twins, so the emphasis can also be on family, especially siblings.
Expand your skills, meet new people, and have stimulating conversations. Inspiring ideas and fresh perspectives are abundant; enjoy the adventure of exploring!
