Starting mid-May, visions of beaches, pool parties, backyard BBQs, and vibrant fireworks start dancing in our heads. With summer right around the corner, opportunities to socialize and relax under the sun’s sweet warmth are abundant. So it’s quite fitting that a season marked by the desire to both chill out and seize every moment, also occurs at the same time the sun moves through dualistic Gemini.
What Are Gemini Season Dates?
From May 21 to June 21, the sun moves through the mutable air sign Gemini, ruler of the third house and the realm of language, self-expression, early environment and childhood, sibling relationships, community, and short-distance travel. Gemini’s ruling planet Mercury oversees all things related to communication, information-gathering, transportation, and technology. These energies combine during Gemini season, promoting connection (above all else) with friends, family, colleagues. It also inspires adventure and curiosity—road trips, learning, and more.

What Are Typical Gemini Characteristics and How Do They Affect Gemini Season?
Known for their dualistic and communicative nature, Geminis can come off as energetic and curious one minute, then cool and distant the next. They’re also the mutable one of the air sign crew, making their moods especially changeable. At the same time, they can be flexible, open-minded, and downright insatiable when it comes to seeking intellectual stimulation. They’re naturally style-conscious and socially adept, capable of not only adopting the latest trends in fashion, technology, and social media, but being true trailblazers in these Gemini power areas, too. Innately adaptable and playful, it’s no wonder why late spring inspires daydreams of switching up tried-and-true routines for impromptu fun, exploration, and a packed social calendar.
That said, Gemini season has a knack for stimulating your thirst for embarking on new frontiers and making your wildest fantasies a reality. Here’s what each sign should focus on this season to fuel their imaginations. (Be sure to read your rising sign, too!)

Gemini (May 21-June 20)
Gemini season, and the sun’s trip through your first house of self, can feel like adding a jolt of caffeine to your already super-social, excitable, playful M.O. You’ll feel confident and driven to get after big picture personal goals. Your tendency may be to dive in head first, but make sure to build in time for self-reflection.

Cancer (June 21-July 22)
While the sun moves through your twelfth house of spirituality, you may be tempted to retreat into your crab shell, isolating yourself from others as you reflect on emotional wounds. But you’ll do well to find productive ways to work through any psychological stress now, perhaps through art, meditation, music, or yogic breathing practices. Rest and rejuvenation will be key, Cancer; having an outlet makes it easier to come out of this phase feeling both recharged and enlightened.

Leo (July 23-August 22)
The sun’s journey through Gemini and your eleventh house of networking can scatter your attention across a bevy of team projects, from fitness classes to work and charity events. Although your Leo nature tends to gravitate toward leadership roles, working alongside friends and colleagues can feel particularly rewarding. Jump on those opportunities to meet up with friends for dinner, plan group dates, attend a block party, or mix and mingle at a conference. You never know who you could meet and, in turn, what you could learn now.

Virgo (August 23-September 22)
As the sun moves through Gemini and your tenth house of career, your inbox could be flooded with emails from higher-ups looking for you to take on big picture projects. Or you’ll be recognized for your hard work on previous endeavors. Either way, your star is on the rise now, and you may find that hitting your professional goals comes easily. The only problem is that you might start to feel overwhelmed. Focus on the few that truly speak to your end game Virgo, and you’ll be right on track.

The sun’s trip through your eighth house of sexual intimacy and transformation can turn your focus to some heavy-duty matters, like one-on-one time with your partner or striving for more power on the job.

Approaching sex with playfulness and embracing creative approaches in business matters are good ideas.

The sun’s trip through Gemini lights up your seventh house of partnership, turning your attention to bonding with a S.O. or collaborating with a colleague. Given that we’re in Twins season, partnership and teamwork is key for you, Sagittarius. There’s a little bit of resistance from you on this front, given that you value your independence so much, but embracing partnership can help you succeed and learn more about yourself. When you’re part of a power pair, you’ll feel that much stronger.
