Say Yes to the Improvisational Zing of Gemini Season

You can be amazing

You can turn a phrase into a weapon or a drug

You can be the outcast

Or be the backlash of somebody’s lack of love

Or you can start speaking up 

Nothing’s gonna hurt you the way words do

When settle ‘neath your ski

Kept on the inside and no sunlight

Sometimes a shadow wins 

But I wonder what would happen if you 

Say what you wanna say 

And let the words fall out … 

~ Sarah Bareilles “Brave” 🎶

Listen, Learn, Speak, Repeat.

5 Actionable Steps in Gemini Season:

  • Follow a curiosity—even and especially if it demands embracing a new learning curve.
  • Feed your mind—refresh your podcasts, Kindle library, apps!
  • Mobilize—Gemini energy loves the improvisational novelty and learning opps of discovering new spots and people around the neighborhood and via short trips.
  • Lean into the power of your perception—whether you’re mustering your courage as an interviewer, podcast guest, photographer, songwriter—the world is ready to experience your unique point of view. Don’t keep it to yourself!
  • Mind the Gemini Shadow—make sure you’re pausing to listen, to intentionally disconnect from the purely cerebral, and to re-center to the quiet place within as a form of self-care.
