Mercury, the planet of intellect and communication, has two home signs: Gemini and Virgo. When this planet sets up camp in Gemini, a cosmic door is being swung open, helping us become more clear-headed, objective, and mentally flexible. This is a time when we're encouraged to take in a huge breath of fresh Gemini air, and let curiosity teach our minds how to be young again.
Mercury is all about facts and ideas, and ways to communicate that information. Gemini is an Air sign associated with cool detachment and reason. Because of this, Mercury's time in Gemini becomes the ultimate channel for information to flow through. When this power duo gets together, thoughts rush through us at warp speed.
