If you’ve been feeling a little more social, outgoing, and mentally energized, it’s probably because we’re entering Gemini season 2021. Down-to-earth Taurus season put us on our grind and got us working on our tangible goals, but when the sun enters Gemini on May 20, the airy energy will shift our focus more towards thoughts and communication. Expect to feel more social and mentally energized, and have a much busier schedule to balance, busier, and more mentally energized.
Gemini is the mutable air sign of zodiac, represented by the symbol of the twins — which is fitting, given that this season has us doubling our social plans and thinking twice as fast as usual! Gemini season falls during the final month of spring, so its multitasking-friendly energy is great for breezing through last-minute spring cleaning projects and revitalizing your social life before summer hits. The sun in Gemini will also join forces with mental planet Mercury and love planet Venus throughout the duration of the season, which will amplify the clever, curious, and quizzical energy even more.
Of course, with a new astrological season comes new dramas, and the big one this month is Mercury retrograde spring 2021, which begins on May 29 and takes place in the sign of Gemini itself. Saturn retrograde 2021 also kicks off the very same week — so while Gemini zodiac energy likes to move fast, we’ll be challenged to take things a little more slowly and think through our actions. Gemini season also delivers 2021’s first eclipses (two of them!), which will shake up our lives and realigns us on new paths.
The transition from Taurus to Gemini season also marks a general shift in planetary weather from the realm of the fixed signs to the mutable signs. Fixed sign energy is all about steady focus and determination, while mutable sign energy is much more adaptable and go-with-the-flow. With Mercury, Venus, Jupiter, and now the sun having just recently left fixed signs and entered mutable signs (and the current eclipse season taking place on a mutable sign axis), we’ll all be feeling a little more flexible, free, and open to change as we round out the spring.

If Your Zodiac Sign Is Taurus (April 20 - May 20)
Money is on your mind this season, Taurus, so it’s a great time to get your financial sitch in order or start thinking about your worth in a new way. Negotiations about your pay rate or general conversations about finances are more likely to run smoothly (pending any Mercury retrograde mix-ups, of course), so use your communication skills to get what you want.
If Your Zodiac Sign Is Gemini (May 21 - June 20)
Happy birthday season, Gemini! The solar spotlight is on you all month long, which is boosting your confidence levels — and with chatty Mercury and romantic Venus in your sign, too, you’ll find that you’re easily taking center stage in just about every area of your life. Whether you want to focus on love, work, or your personal goals, now’s an amazing time to embrace the exciting changes and opportunities that are unfolding in front of you.
If Your Zodiac Sign Is Cancer (June 21 - July 22)
This month brings a quiet and contemplative vibe for you, Cancer, so it’s important to listen to your intuition and prioritize self-care. While most people will be feeling more social now, you might find that your mental energy is better utilized when you’re alone, connecting with your spirituality or just daydreaming about your summer plans. It’s OK to take a break from the grind and allow yourself to chill.
If Your Zodiac Sign Is Leo (July 23 - Aug. 22)
Unleash the social butterfly inside of you, Leo, because Gemini season is lighting up the friendship sector of your chart. This is a great time to take initiative and find ways to bring your ride-or-die squad back together by livening up the group chat and planning some fun hangs. If you’ve been thinking of joining a club or getting involved with your community in some way, it’s a great time for that, too — you might even make some new friends to add to the text thread.
If Your Zodiac Sign Is Virgo (Aug. 23 - Sept. 22)
Gemini season is shining a spotlight on your career life, Virgo, so bring your A-game to the workplace and be ready to put your talents on full display. This quick-thinking energy is great for catching up on work projects as well as collaborating with colleagues, so take time to network and make some fresh connections that could bring you professional opportunities down the road.
If Your Zodiac Sign Is Libra (Sept. 23 - Oct. 22)
With the sun in a fellow air sign, you’re feeling extra hungry for knowledge and open to new adventures now, Libra, so get ready to expand your horizons. It’s a great time to learn new things and pursue new interests by signing up for a class, diving into a book, or connecting with someone who can help you see the world from a fresh perspective. Practice being more spontaneous and going with the flow.
If Your Zodiac Sign Is Scorpio (Oct. 23 - Nov. 21)
You’re deep in your feelings this season, Scorpio, and these heavy cosmic vibes could intensify your relationships. That said, it’s extra important to be communicative about your emotions and boundaries. If no one knows what you need or how you’re feeling, how can you expect to get what you want from people? Be willing to put your deepest desires and fears into words — your relationships will be stronger because of it.
If Your Zodiac Sign Is Sagittarius (Nov. 22 - Dec. 21)
Love and relationships are on your mind this season, Sagittarius, and you’ll feel inspired to open up new channels of communication with your significant other or closest friends. It’s a great time to connect with loved ones one-on-one or take things to the next level with a partner. Make sure you carve out quality time for honest conversations and heart-to-hearts that keep your connections strong.
If Your Zodiac Sign Is Capricorn (Dec. 22 - Jan. 19)
Gemini energy is great for multitasking, so use this season’s vibe to chip away at all the lingering tasks on your to-do, Capricorn. While you usually appreciate a structured schedule, it’s nice to mix things up sometimes and allow for some flexibility in your routine — so don’t be afraid to shake things up and create some fresh and healthy habits. Once summer hits, you’ll be thriving in a whole new rhythm.
If Your Zodiac Sign Is Aquarius (Jan. 20 - Feb. 18)
For you, Aquarius, this season is all about being fun and flirty. It’s a great time for romance, so leave room in your calendar for date nights — whether that means drinks with a potential new boo or just some fun plans to keep the spark alive with a current partner. The passionate vibes will be great for creativity as well, so jot down all your brilliant ideas and channel your feelings into something artsy.
If Your Zodiac Sign Is Pisces (Feb. 19 - March 20)
You’re channeling lots of energy into your home life this season, Pisces, so it’s a great time to spruce up your house and do some creative redecorating. And just because you’re spending lots of time at home doesn’t mean you’re not feeling social — plan some fun movie nights or dinner parties at your place with friends to bring some good vibes and cheer into your sanctuary.
