The Mercury Retrograde begins on November 23, 2011 at 11:20pm EST, and it will last until December 13, 2011.
A planet is called ‘retrograde’ when it moves backwards through the Zodiac.
Mercury usually turns retrograde 3 times a year, and usually lasts about 3 weeks.
The planet Mercury is associated with, or the ruling planet of communications, travel, and learning. Therefore, a Retrograde may affect these aspects of every day life for the next few weeks.
During a Mercury Retrograde, the following may be affected:
- Classes and school
- Sending correspondence
- Signing of agreements/contracts
- Mechanical equipment, like computers, radios, phones, clocks
- Travel, or travel equipment, like cars, bicycles, trains, planes
Things to avoid during a Mercury Retrograde:
- Making important decisions
- Placing ads
- Purchasing communications equipment
- Signing contracts (this includes getting married, or any commitments like relationships)
- Initiating business deals
- Sending any important messages
- Starting school
- Starting an important project/enterprise
Mercury Retrograde is a good time for:
- Reviewing and revising
- Cleaning out the (metaphorical or real) closet
- Make repairs
- Catching up on old business
- Do tasks you’ve been postponing
- Confirm reservations, check your facts
- Change your mind
- Deeply considering issues
Typically, anything that you begin during a Mercury Retrograde does not last. For example, anything put in writing (contracts, for instance) turn out needing serious revising.
A Mercury Retrograde is, instead, a good time to catch up with ourselves, and to look back. It is said that something from the past may return in a different form during this time.

He was all about me for some time, and seems to really like me, but Ive come to realize he is a Gemini as well (when were together it really shows hahaa) and he has recently been...I wanna say neglecting to show as much affection as he did previosly. Is this just the Gemini in him? If so I completely understand, but I was wondering also If you think he'll come back if I leave him be?
Oh gosh, watch your back lady. Gemini men are serious Casanovas and will leave you sniffling in their trail of dust. They can be a lot of fun, really, but they can be just as much of an asshole at the turn of a hat.
He will be verrrrrrry charming, of course, and exciting and hilarious and sexy as all hell. But he moves on, just like we do. And very quickly at that. He switches roles and moods (like we do) at the literal snap of fingers.
I can tell you that if you keep him excited and not bored, he’ll have you. But you also have to accept that when he is done with you he will be done and there ain’t nothin you can do about it.

To this day I can't say I forgive the ex bestfriend, like we always argued and made up but this time she took it too far , It just confuses me that I'm more hurt by my friendship ending than my relationship with my ex .
Well you’re hurt more by your friendship ending because relationships come and go but your friends will always be there. Or so you think. THESE are the people you get the closest too, not your current boyfriend or girlfriend. It might seem that way but relationships always end. Sorry I’m not looking on the brighter side of things, but I’m not here to sugarcoat shit for everyone.
Friends are the most important thing you can have in your life. They are your un-blood family. They know everything about you, and vice versa. You tell them everything and they listen and give you advice. They go shopping with you and help pick out your clothes. They go out to dinner and see movies with you, which you discuss later. You probably have gone to school with them, shared classes, car rides, dances, parties, etc.
I don’t think signs had much to do with your hurt, to be quite honest.
Anonymous said: I am a Gemini, and I also have a twin. Would this affect my personality at all?
Whoa, that’s awesome! It won’t affect your personality, but damn that must be an crazy cool life! That’s pretty much like 4 siblings who are all scarily alike.
I for one totally wish I had a twin. I think that would be the shit.

Both are fast paced and energetic. GO FOR IT.

Anonymous said: I'm not sure if you've answered about this one, but what is the outcome of two Gemini's dating? Both men, if that's any help.
Gender makes no difference, but Venus and Mars positions will. This is more than likely a great pairing, but a very fast paced and possibly messy one. Gemini is forever youthful and can be very childish and when you put two of them in a room together (or in this case, a relationship) you have 4 hyper kids.
It will never be boring, that’s for sure! Go for it.

Hahahahahahaha, oh my gosh I’m sorry that’s too funny.
But before you even start to think about dealing with her because of her sign, you must tell her the truth. You have to tell anybody and everybody the truth. And you have to say it clearly. Boys and girls are stupid. They can’t take a hint. They can’t read your mind. Which means that you can’t expect them to know how you feel and then cater to it, because you will end up only disappointing yourself.
As for Libra, her feelings are not shatter proof like yours. Be gentle and straight up, but don’t be mean. No need to hurt her feelings, unless she turns into a psycho. In which case, feel free to let out that mean Twin!
I’m only kidding.
Anonymous said: I'm a gemini, and I think this Aquarius is REALLY CUUTE and I think that if something happened with us we might work out, but I just don't want to scare him away. How would you suggest a Gemini to approach an Aquarius without coming off to.. insane?? (:
You can’t scare an Aquarius! Especially as a Gemini! You’re both insane little children!
Appeal to the water bearer’s youthfulness. Keep in mind that they tend to be buttheadish. No worries, though, you are quite adept at butting right back.
Anonymous said: I am gemini women and have somehow got myself in a situation of dating Taurus and Scorpio (both males). I like them both and they are both so very different then myself. Both have great personalities and seem to bring out the good in me. I'm not sure which guy to pick as for a serious relationship? Any advice for me?
I think it depends on your Venus placement if you are looking for a serious relationship. Neither of those signs is necessarily great for Gemini (Taurus being boring and methodical, Scorpio being intense and jealous and private) but your Venus sign will change that. If you have Venus in an Earth sign, go for the Taurus. If you have a Watery Venus, try your Scorpio.

AwesomeAwesomeAwesomeAwesomeAwesome. Read more about it through the compatibilities link but this is a great, youthful pairing!

Same as it would be with any other gender couple! Go check out the link on the main page, there’s a ton of Gemini/Scorpio stuff.
Anonymous said: how do u get a gemini man to fall for you ? or get back at them ?
How to get a Gemini man to fall in love with you….hahaha, there is no such thing. You can’t make a Gem guy fall in love with you. If he likes you, he’ll make it happen. I can tell you that this guy is looking for a girl who is exciting, and can keep him on his toes. His attention span is very short, however and you have to have some thick skin when going after this guy because he will shower you with attention and affection one minute and be chasing some other ass the next.
As for getting back at them, you can do all you want (being cold and dismissive really is the key, as is ignoring them) but Gemini has the ability to get over it and move on, essentially forgetting about what you did while simultaneously writing you completely out of their lives. They do this only after they get vicious. When you piss the Twins off, prepare yourself for some nasty, stabbing attacks.
