Gemini

Our next air sign, and our next mutable sign, we've got Gemini which runs from about May 21-June 21. Gemini is ruled by Mercury and is represented by the twins. As a mutable sign, it ushers in the end of the season, in this case it ends spring to bring in summer. As air signs, they are "of the mind" and considered one of the thinkers, communicators, and doers, alongside Libra and Aquarius. 

Gemini are known to be chatty, fluid, and flexible. Some could interpret their duality as being two-faced or hot-and-cold, but really they're more like social chameleons. As a fellow ruled-by-Mercury Virgo, I think of them as... well, extroverted Virgos. Geminis are all about the output and are the social butterflies of the Zodiac. 

Often viewed as your "Jack-of-all-trades" friends, Gemini have their hands in a lot of pots. They're charming and witty - maybe your friend who is really good at Twitter has some prominent Gemini in their charts? I feel like my Gemini friends tend to view themselves as agents of chaos, and to me it makes sense that most of Pride month is during Gemini season. 🌈

Our Gemini yarn is full of dualities - pink, bright yellow, a steely sort of blue-green, with bright purple speckles.
