Your ruling planet Mercury, which rules communication, is undergoing its final retrograde of the year, and of the decade, Gemini. It’s taking place in the sign of Scorpio from October 31 – November 20, so the first three weeks of November can feel like one big blurry world for you, at least at first. As Mercury Retrograde begins, you may find yourself unsure of what you want from love and sex. You may have been floating around, not really asking yourself essential questions about your romantic aspirations, and just letting life lead you in one direction or another. But with Mercury Retrograde in the most intensely penetrating sign of the zodiac, you’ll find that you can no longer run from the depths — they’re coming to find you.
The first three weeks of the month you may therefore not be in as much of a casual hook-up mood. While you’ll still engage in interesting conversations and flirtations, a part of you will be seeking something, or someone, that stimulates every aspect of your mind, body, and soul. And since Mercury Retrograde often has to do with the past, you may realize that the person you seek is tied to your past. A past lover, a past best friend, a past fantasy… It’s time to explore that, whether it starts off in your daydreams or dreams, or if you actually decide to pick up the phone and let them know they’ve been on your mind. Yup, it takes courage. It takes being able to ask for what you want. It takes trusting that it’s okay to not get what you want too. With Mercury Retrograde until November 20, the Universe is asking you to be patient and not make assumptions about how other people feel about you based on their perceived behavior.
The Taurus Full Moon takes place on the 12th of November, and from the 8th to the 16th of the month you will feel its energy mounting and then waning. This Full Moon will activate your sector of spirituality and healing, so if you have sex around this time you may actually end up in tears! Either it will be so good (or so bad, yikes), that it makes you cry, or you’ll have a powerful realization about how deeply you care for your partner (and it may not be the partner you’re sleeping with at the time of the realization), and it’ll shake you up.
Sex is energy. Sex is energy. Sex is energy. As the first Air sign of the zodiac, you should be especially aware of this transfer of energy, and you should use this final Mercury Retrograde of 2019 to get clear about the type of energy you want to merge with, and why. Sex out of spite? So the first half of 2019. This retrograde will make you aware of times when you may not have fully owned your own shadows. Scorpio Season is bringing them all out to play now. Invite your bae(s) along for the ride… literally, sexually and metaphorically.
Once Mars, the Planet of Action enters Scorpio on the 19th, you’ll notice yourself transforming as a lover. Suddenly you’ll feel ready to dive in and explore your vulnerabilities with yourself and your partners. Even if you don’t think you’re ready, the fact that Mercury will be going direct one day after Mars enters Scorpio means that you’ll be able to feel yourself through whatever sexual and romantic inclinations you have.
You know what you need to feel satisfied, and you know what you want to do to satisfy those you love or deeply desire. It’s up to you to bridge the gap between the two, Gemini. It’s up to you to trust your instincts as you shoot your shot, particularly once Mercury goes direct. There will be a shadow period after the 20th, so be intentional in everything you say or do — people will be taking you seriously and they don’t want to feel like you’re playing mind games. Speak your truth so the Universe can be clear about what to give you.
Sag Season starts on the 22nd, activating your sector of partnership, and helping you view your lover(s) in a more light-hearted, adventurous way. If you’re single, you may end up meeting someone this Sag Season, especially since Mercury Retrograde will have ended and you’ll be feeling more like yourself again. Someone you once viewed as a friend or someone who previously friend-zoned you may pop back up in your life and you’ll see each other in a brand new light (did you both get hotter or…?) It’s up to you if you’re down to explore each other intellectually, psychologically, and sexually as the month comes to an end. You never know what could happen until you try…
Gemini is symbolized by the Twins and is ruled by Mercury, the Planet of Communication. This makes you one of the least predictable signs of the zodiac, and the king or queen of experimentation when it comes to sex. Easily bored, you absolutely hate routine in the bedroom. You’re the sign that’s always down to try something new, and you’re likely to get your partner(s) to be up for it too. You also aren’t one to be pinned down to just one sexual partner, unless that partner has what it takes to keep you interested for the long haul. For you, sex should be a constant adventure and roller-coaster ride. There are plenty of fish in the sea, and you want to be able to swim with them all. One of your lessons as a Gemini is to focus on quality rather than quantity though. Also learn how to let sensuality and vulnerability become infused within your sexuality, so that there’s more to it than just sleeping around. With time, your sexual partners do realize that as an Air Sign, you are a sapiosexual — you’re someone who’s attracted to people’s minds more than their physical bodies. This may surprise many people who have characterized you as a shallow and flakey sign. But in reality, you want to be able to not only have many rounds of sex, but also have plenty of discussions with your sexual partner(s) about all topics under the sun.
In fact, since talking is your area of expertise, you are known as being very verbose in the bedroom. When you’re turned on, you want to let your partner know, and you want them to vocalize what they’re feeling sexually too. If you’re with a fellow Air sign or Fire sign, that communicative nature may be compatible with their expressive nature. Earth and Water signs tend to want to just feel things in the moment and may need some time to adjust to your more expressive and wordy sexual tendencies. You really can’t help yourself though. Since you’re ruled by the Planet of Communication, you’re constantly asking yourself, “How am I doing? Do they enjoy this? What can I do to make them enjoy it even more? What are they thinking right now?” One of your evolutionary lessons as a sexual partner is to just be in the moment and shut off your constantly racing mind. It will take practice, but it’s definitely going to increase your sexual stamina because you’ll be able to focus on pleasing and being pleased.
As a Gemini, your idea of foreplay is sending your sexual conquest an impromptu sext letting them know they’re on your mind, and daring them to spontaneously meet you at the nearest location for a quickie. People never know what they’re going to get with you, and you keep them on their toes, so they view you as an elusive, charming, flirtatious and witty sexual partner. But they also feel like just as they’re starting to get to know you, you morph into someone new. Ruled by the Twins, you are known for being dual-natured, or honestly, infinitely natured. You change every day–every hour, really. So do your sexual needs. One moment you may be craving a long, drawn-out sexcapade, and the other you may want to simply masturbate by yourself and take care of your own needs without a partner in sight. You vacillate between introversion and extroversion, and people can never truly tell how into them you are until you finally spill the beans and don’t shy away from human connection.
Another plus of being ruled by Mercury is that you make incredible use of your lips. Geminis are known for being formidable kissers. Not only will you want to make-out with your sex partner(s) and leave them wanting more, but you give life-changing, orgasmic oral sex, and you often do so with a great amount of pleasure and generosity. There’s no oral like a Gemini’s oral. This is often your way to get your partners completely hooked and smitten by you. They’ll endlessly daydream about the times you went down on them and be left craving more. The same goes for your use of your hands, which is the body part you are ruled by. Fingering is your forte, as well as handjobs. You are a master at the art of touch, and you love being touched absolutely everywhere. You also love to surprise your partners with new sexual positions that you may reveal when they least expect it. For you, boredom is never an option, so you’re always game to try something completely out there that other signs may at first be too shy to engage in. Ultimately, Gemini, you are a very energizing and exciting sexual partner, although you can also be flighty and a bit all over the place when it comes to where you direct your sexual energy. When you do decide to commit to one person though, they will feel like they have ten sexual partners all in one, and as long as they’re down for the ride, you both can have the time of your lives exploring and fulfilling each others’ deepest fantasies.
