On June 3, 01:37 PM —

On June 3, 03:37 AM EST, Mercury leaves Taurus and enters Gemini, inviting us to embrace an inquisitive mindset. This shift speeds up our thought processes, inspires us to develop more versatility and adaptability, and fuels our desire to learn more about everything. Mercury is going to remain in Gemini until June 17.

Mercury’s ingress into Gemini is particularly relevant for those of us born with planets or angles in Mutable signs: Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius, and Pisces. The individuals personally impacted by Mercury’s shift of signs will have opportunities to significantly change their habitual ways of thinking, communicating, and learning. This transit asks them to question their mindset, embrace a new perception of reality, be more curious, and open their minds to unfamiliar dimensions.

Mercury from Taurus to Gemini: A New Way of Thinking


Named after the mythological Messenger and psychopomp, Mercury is the planet connected with communication, intellect, and rational reasoning. It governs how we tend to think, process information, and express our ideas. Mercury is associated with quick thinking, adaptability, the ability to analyze data, and the capacity to share our ideas clearly and effectively. 

The ruler of both Gemini and Virgo, Mercury correlates with our learning style, problem-solving, commerce, and short-term and short-distance travel. Mercury is one of the planets that inspires our search for knowledge and understanding: transits of Mercury inform us of collective trends in terms of learning, thinking, and communication patterns. When Mercury changes signs, a shift in perception is encouraged and we have an opportunity to see our reality from a new vantage point.

Mercury in Taurus offered us an invitation to think pragmatically and explore practical solutions to daily problems. This transit kept our minds grounded, inspired us to focus on efficiency and functionality, and encouraged us to choose clear and concise language in our communications.

Mercury’s ingress in Gemini liberates our minds from the constraints of practicality and inspires us to be curious, question established ways of thinking, and widen our understanding of reality. This transit encourages us to keep searching for answers, ask more questions, and allow ourselves to be intellectually challenged.


Mercury enters Gemini: Embodying a Learning-Oriented Attitude


Gemini is one of Mercury’s domiciles and rules the Yang or masculine side of Mercury. Virgo rules the Yin or feminine side of Mercury, concerned with problem-solving, discerning the data that is useful versus that which is not, and organizing the information we already possess. Gemini instead governs the Yang side of Mercury, concerned with collecting data, facts, and information from a variety of sources in order to logically understand reality. The Yang side of Mercury has also a lot to do with communication and with the drive to engage in debates and conversations with others to better understand both their opinions and our own.

Curious, quick-witted, and intelligent, Mercury in Gemini is interested in learning about everything and understanding life and humans in all of their forms. This transit fuels our desire to learn, talk, write, research, and engage in conversations and debates about any topic. Mercury’s journey through Gemini is a powerful time to invest in our education, explore unfamiliar subjects and topics, and pursue new interests, hobbies, and activities with a learning-oriented, inquisitive mindset.


Mercury conjunct Jupiter and trine Pluto


As soon as entering Gemini, Mercury crosses Jupiter in the sign and trines retrograde Pluto in Aquarius. Both alignments are going to be exact on June 4. The Mercury-Jupiter conjunction invites us to expand our intellectual horizons, motivates us to be open-minded, and supports our efforts to bridge logic and intuition. This aspect facilitates all learning pursuits and reminds us to see life and our daily experiences as learning opportunities. 

The Mercury-Pluto trine invites us to deepen our conversations and motivates us to attune to the undercurrents of communication, to what is felt but not overly said. This alignment facilitates a transformation of our perceptions and a sharpening of our understanding of all nuances of communication and thinking. The Mercury-Pluto trine reinforces our capacity to empower ourselves through learning and reminds us of the power of our thoughts and words.

Overall, Mercury and Jupiter in Gemini trine Pluto in Aquarius motivate us to challenge our reliance on habitual ways of thinking, speaking, and seeing reality. This configuration motivates us to stay curious, try to solve problems in new ways, pursue innovation, and go beyond surface-level conversation.

Mercury square Saturn and Neptune


Respectively on June 12 and June 17, Mercury in Gemini squares Saturn and Neptune in Pisces. The Mercury-Saturn square brings our attention to any limiting beliefs we may hold about our intellectual skills, intelligence, or ability to learn. This aspect can offer us opportunities to observe what gets activated in the background of our minds when we feel tempted to silence ourselves, self-censor, or avoid speaking up for ourselves. The Mercury-Saturn square offers us chances to recognize thinking and communication patterns that don’t serve us and reminds us to be responsible for the impact of our words and thoughts.

The Mercury-Neptune square can be an opportunity to pay attention to any temptation to lie, hide, or omit the truth. Around this time, we may experience a sense of brain fog and confusion and find it hard to articulate our thoughts or focus on linear tasks: both Mercury and Neptune are in their home signs, which makes this aspect particularly powerful. The Mercury-Neptune square highlights the tension we experience when we aren’t sure if we should follow our rational mind or our intuition and feelings about a situation. This energy can be channeled constructively in all those pursuits that require creative use of words and language as well as attunement to sensation, such as music, drama, poetry, and performance.


Mercury enters Gemini: Embracing an Inquisitive Mindset


Gemini energy is currently very prominent as Jupiter, Venus, and the Sun are in the sign too. With Mercury also here for the next two weeks, the invitation for us is to be flexible, curious, and willing to share our ideas with others.

Mercury’s ingress into its Air domicile of Gemini supports our intellectual efforts, marks an increase in the pace of our thought processes, and inspires us to learn, study, and engage in conversations with an inquisitive mindset.

This combination of energies motivates us to broaden our knowledge across various fields and subjects rather than specializing in a single area of focus. As a result, Mercury in Gemini’s transit supports our ability to integrate different perspectives and ways of thinking and widen our understanding of ourselves and life.

As we navigate this period, it is advised to be mindful of a tendency to get easily distracted and jump from one thought to the next, from one topic to another, without really taking time to integrate the information we are taking in, without reaching an embodied understanding of what we are reading, hearing, or studying.


Crystal Pick for Mercury in Gemini: Blue Tiger Eye


The unique blue version of this Gemini stone, blue tiger eye is a beautiful crystal for the Mercurial realms of the mind as it harnesses and stabilizes your mental body, helping you be more discerning about which thoughts to listen to and follow, and which ones need to be thrown away or ignored entirely. It brings concentration, focus, and inspired ideas and funnels them through the throat to help you express and communicate them clearly and confidently, and take action on the insights you receive.

During this very heightened Gemini energy we’re experiencing right now, it can feel like there’s a dizzying flurry of information, ideas, and opinions flying around, and can be hard to ground yourself and escape your mind at times. Blue tiger eye will calm and settle the chaos of the mind, allowing clarity to rise to the surface so you can make grounded, rational decisions and release the scattered thinking and overstimulated nerves this transit can bring.

It’s also a great choice to help you bring all this beautiful airy energy down to Earth to ground your ideas and visions into reality. Use blue tiger eye to help you take action on your goals, keep moving forward, and tap into the heightened awareness and perspective this transit offers to communicate all your bright ideas!
