Mercury enters Gemini on May 3rd and will stay in that sign until July 11th, 2021. Mercury will bring fun and lighthearted moments in Gemini, making us more intellectually driven. If you’ve been longing to get back into reading books or learning more about a topic you are curious about, this is your time to dive in. Mercury will go retrograde beginning May 29th, which will pose as a difficult time for many of us, since it will feel like déjà vu when we have to redo certain things if they’re not communicated effectively the first time. Buying technology and starting some new relationships might be something you want to hold off until Mercury goes direct. This is your time to complete a project you never finished or edit something you have pending. Once Mercury goes direct on June 22nd, we can get back to our routines.
