Gemini: The Mercurial Hummingbird


Now that we are well into the sign of Gemini, I can honestly say that life has been feeling pretty zippy lately. With Mercury Retrograde finally being over, it seems for me, that things in my life have been spontaneously combusting….in a good way.

Gemini allows us to build upon the grounding energy of Taurus, into the vivacity that Gemini is all about. The Taurus grounding energy was one about being present in the moment, and taking stalk of all that no longer served us, and preparing ourselves to find balance with opposition. Gemini on the other hand, allows us to adapt to those changes and receive messages from the higher realms, all the while finding the balance between the masculine and feminine, mental and emotional, and conscious and unconscious.

I liken the Gemini spirit, to a Mercurial Hummingbird. Mercury is the planetary governor of this sign and is all about messages… all its forms. Hummingbirds are zippy little birds whose chaotic movement symbolizes the quick-wittedness of Gemini.  I love this quote by Papyrus who states

“Legends say that hummingbirds float free of time, carrying our hopes for love, joy, and celebration. The hummingbird’s delicate grace reminds us that life is rich, beauty is everywhere, every personal connection has meaning and that laughter is life’s sweetest creation.”

Gemini’s message is to be curious, be authentic, and share your spiritual wisdom with others. At the end of the day, we are all both teachers and students. When we are able to be both, happiness and harmony will be the hummingbird’s sweet nectar.
