Twinning is winning this week—and we aren’t just saying that for obvious reasons. On Monday, June 3, the annual new moon in Gemini draws kindred spirits together under its magnetic force field. Gemini rules siblings and peers, so maybe there’s more to mine with someone who shares your DNA. Before you know it, the two of you could be cooking up yacht trips to Turks and Caicos, attracting six figure #sponsorship deals, and planning each other’s future baby showers. Or hey, maybe you’ll just meet for rooftop drinks and festival road trips all summer, which is also perfectly FINE! And probably a lot more reasonable of an expectation. But there’s no downside in discussing what might someday be, since this verbose lunation helps you articulate your visions. If you’re feeling stuck, find yourself a sounding board! Whether you’re “workshopping” it out with a BFF or an amazing life coach, visionary ideas emerge via dialogue. Under this intellectual—and changeable—lunar lift, leave them in the simmer pot instead of rushing to craft a business plan in 48 hours. You can turn up the heat slowly but surely between now and the corresponding full moon in Gemini this December 12, and watch your mental gems become a reality.
Another wave of partnership-powered momentum flows in this Saturday, June 8, as ardent Venus flits into Gemini, picking up where Monday’s new moon left off. A global flirt alert is active until July 3, so follow those butterflies! You could meet your match somewhere “mobile” like the food truck line or on the dance floor, or somewhere intellectual, like a book club or self-development seminar. Bring that wit and conversation. Sapiosexuals rule the game while Venus hovers in this intellectually stimulating sign. Can’t think of anything to talk about? Culturally edify yourself. Peek at the celebrity gossip and headline news, but dive into the arts section—and some “legit lit,” like a book that would make your English teacher proud. Check out museum exhibits and galleries featuring up-and-coming artists. Meet friends for live music, open-mics and lecture series. There won’t be any need to rehearse opening lines after that. (Although, personally, we do enjoy a good “What’s your sign?” as a lead-magnet…) Pillow-talk could be plenty spicy with this articulate energy afoot, but the fun will happen in equal measure OUTSIDE of the bedroom. Couples should fill their shared calendar with activity dates, road trips, and evenings on the town with mutual friends. Venus in Gemini helps with communication—and that means listening, too, not just delivering long monologues. Practice mirroring back what your partner said instead of rushing to respond. When people feel heard, they feel loved. Welcome to the validation station!
