Mercury is at home in Gemini, the sign of its rulership, and where it is most comfortable to do what it does best: to revel in light speed mental hyperdrive! This is is a good challenge for any meditation practice; so all you zen Buddhists out there, get ready, it's time to cash in those hours of mindfulness training, you're going need them. If you're more interested in drowning yourself in coffee and intellectual discourse, then this is your season. Whichever end of the spectrum you find yourself, we could all benefit in some way from a sharpened mind, a keener sense of awareness, and a little more wit. God speed.
Mercury will be in Gemini until May 31st, when it enters Cancer for an extended stay, as Mercury goes retrograde mid June.
