Mutable signs, Gemini, Virgo, Sagittarius and Pisces are most strongly energized, but everyone is going to feel the ripples.
What to expects? The best! So set intentions now!
Gemini is ruled by Mercury, the messenger of the gods. This planet oversees communication, exchange, thoughts, intellectual expression and perception through the five senses. Where we find the sign of the Twins in the horoscope is where we need to learn, develop our powers of observation and sharpen communication skills. We gather knowledge, multi-task and explore our natural curiosity and duality. Gemini says I think, and it is up to us to fill in the blanks: I think what? Gemini is concerned with what it takes to comprehend something and communicate that comprehension to others. Look for 0 Degrees Gemini in your chart.
Gemini Reminds us that Thoughts are Things
. . . We build our future thought by thought,
For good or ill, yet know it not.
Yet, so the universe was wrought.
Thought is another name for fate;
Choose, then, thy destiny and wait,
For love brings love and hate brings hate.
—Henry Van Dyke
