Mercury in Gemini: Double-Talk
The gift of gab is yours for the taking! Communicator Mercury enters its home sign of Gemini this week, staying until June 7. Our minds should be sharp and clear, and we’ll bandy about some interesting new ideas. This is a great time to build your own communication skills. Practice dialogue and “mirroring” (reflecting back what the other person said). Before you launch into a long-winded speech, make sure the other person is engaged and “gets” your point. Gemini rules the hands, so quiet your restless mind with crafts, playing an instrument or making a DIY project.
Gemini is the sign of the Twins, and can have a reputation for being two-faced or for double-talking. Did that person mean what he said? Did you? (A Gemini former president was famous for saying, “Read my lips: no new taxes” and then proceeding to jack up tax rates.) Check yourself twice when you make a promise or commitment. Do you really plan to follow through? If not, it’s better not to make the offer!
