Gemini Season Playlist

Gemini season means a lot to a lot of people, and its multiplicity as an energy field is unsurprising to anyone who's heard enough people talk serious shit about Geminis. You’ve heard the cliches. Two faced, can’t be trusted, yadadamean. The reality isn’t as broad brushed.

Gemini is ruled by Mercury, and the word mercurial suits them. Mercury was the god of communication, quickness, and understanding. Mercury also is the planet closest to the sun with with the shortest orbital period around the sun. Everything is about speed, motion, keeping going. Gems are socially genius, the best at identifying and keeping track of every fiber of the social webs around them. Gems are infinitely creative, capable of huge empathy and huge coldnesses, always listening, learning and mapping. Geminis have a motor mouth that keeps going whether they will it or not. Geminis have something that pushes them to find more and better and more varied types of fun, music, drugs, people, experiences, things that can fill not just one but two lives. Gemini thirst for a continually elusive part of themselves the second half, the twin that they can feel the absence of.

It comes with its setbacks as well. Gem occupies that scene in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade where Indie and his dad are spinning between two rooms in a fireplace / secret door, one filled with nazis and the other filled with fire. Different, but neither maybe completely optimal? Inside one entity, but always cut off from part of itself, and never sure which of the two rooms they are in. This might lead to internal vexation on the part of the gemini (and external vexation for those close to them.)

This is all true, but nobody, not a single other sign in the zodiak can come close to rivaling the creative genius, especially right now of the gemini energy pattern. I could say all that and it would be true before I brought up that Kendrick Lamar and Kanye West are both Gemini, who also share a moon in Pisces (how is this the first time any of us are hearing about this?) And the God tier goes all the way back. Tupac and Biggie were both Gemini. Andre 3000. Lauryn Hill. Ice Cube. Fucking Prince? I don’t even need an argument at this point.

Why do Gems have such godhood? In art, contrast and contradiction, dual-natures, healthy levels of disconnect, the left hand and right hand at war with one another. The Balenciaga Crocs. Allathat.

Here’s a playlist, with some of the greatest. Enjoy it, I hope it lets you find peace in the midst of duality.
