Writers and creatives, Gemini season is your time.
There are certain times of the year that are a bit more buzzing than others for our inspiration and creativity. Gemini season, which runs until June 20th this year (2020) is one of those times.
I always try to take advantage of this time to support my writing and creative practice. This isn’t to say that other times of the year are not productive or supportive, but I’ve found that Gemini season can be a bit of a turbo boost that builds momentum in our favor.
Gemini season hits at the peak of spring in the Western hemisphere. There’s a buzzing in the air. Just going outside for a few minutes, I’m able to hear birds chirping, see bees pollinating and flowers blooming. People are walking, chatting, and laughing with each other.
This is the energy of Gemini.
Gemini is about sharing ideas, following your curiosity, putting thoughts into words. It’s a great time to be writing, researching, teasing out different ideas, and brainstorming.
During the month of June…
- Dive into your creative projects
- Revisit the ones that you have been meaning to get to
- Follow those sparks of inspiration and see where they go
- Share your voice in whichever way you feel called
- Explore a new creative outlet that feels fun or interesting to you
With all this being said, don’t think about it too much. Let your mind wander, play, and follow those sparks of inspiration.
I encourage you, at least for this Gemini season (definitely go longer if you’d like!), to commit to a writing practice. This could be as simple as committing to writing 10 minutes each day. You can work on a specific project, do morning pages, or simply journal and see what wants to come through.
This is a time to play, flirt with different ideas, and write and create with a light heart.
