Taurus season’s chill vibes are donezo and in its place comes the abject chaos of Gemini season.

To prepare you for what’s to come, I’ve answered all your questions about what this szn entails.

What is this madness and when does it occur?

As you probably gathered from its title, Gemini season is the period of time that spans the birthdays of Gemini bbs.

For those of you who are rusty on their star sign dates, Gemini season runs from May 21 – June 21, meaning it’s already kicked off and you’ve probably started to feel its affects already without even noticing.

Why is it such a big deal?

It’s perhaps one of the most jarring seasons of the year ‘coz it follows Taurus season which is known for its chill vibes where things were stable and grounded. You practiced self-care regularly and genuinely felt like you had your shit together.

Now, Gemini’s duplicitous energy throws things into a tailspin and you’ll have yourself questioning what’s legit and what’s not.

Anyone who knows a Gemini is well aware that where they go, gossip and drama tends to follow which is often entertaining but can also cause unwanted chaos.

Don’t give ’em too much of a rough time though, it’s not ~totally~ their fault. You see, Geminis are ruled by Mercury, the planet of communication which means they’re naturally chatty and expressive so as their energy takes over the season, loose lips may sink ships, if ya know what I mean.

You may find that someone you thought you knew or even trusted rears another head during this period and you start to see them from a totally different light.

not only do the olsen twins perfectly convey the gemini twin image but they, themselves, are geminis. coincidence? i think the fuck not!

Couple this with the fact that we’re currently in the most fucked astrological period of the year, and it’s a breeding ground for chaos.

Yeah, cool, so we’re all fucked?

No, not necessarily! There are some positive elements of the season.

Gemini is the first air sign of the zodiac year, and as an air sign, its energy is bright, social and intellectual. Air signs are often mistakenly labelled as air heads but this is simply untrue (in some cases, anyway).

This airiness should be perceived as flexible, clever and brimming with ideas. While Taurus season was grounded and stable, you’re now looking at things with a different perspective which might pave the way for some welcome changes and a shake-up in one’s routine.

It promotes adaptability and evolution and rejects the idea that you can only act one way or do one thing.

Follow that second face of yours and see where it leads you.

Catch ya on the other side.
