Mercury enters Gemini on May 29th (7:48 PM EDT) and it's powered up by its rulership of this sign.
This means a very fast-paced influx of new information and questions. Not great for focus but excellent for inspiration, learning and discovering new angles. Mercury in Gemini can be amusing, sharp, cynical and clever. Everything is considered, especially if it's new. While this can mean a lot of useless info and distracting tangents, nothing triggers fresh input like Mercury in Gemini. Fresh input is crucial for intellectual advancement and for seeing previously overlooked sides to the story. Along with the Sun in Gemini, this is the time to question what's happening and open your eyes to what's new.
Duality is always a theme with this sign, and Mercury in Gemini deftly (and convincingly) offers up both sides to any story. There is always another side. You may not agree with the other side, but it's still there. This energy also emphasizes shifting truths or outright lies. Which side of the story is true? Maybe they both are, or maybe they're both false.
If you're looking for absolutes, you'll have difficulties during this transit. Use this energy to sift through what you read and hear, and try to suspend judgement. Remember, there's more to the story and you won't have to dig deep to see this. At the same, you have to be smart - if something sounds suspicious, follow that thread. If you can't get a straight answer, that is your answer.

June 5th superior conjunction to the Sun and inconjunct to Jupiter. In the Sun/Mercury cycle, this is a "Full Moon" phase. It marks a result connected to the last Sun/Mercury conjunction (April 1st when Mercury was Rx in Aries). This conjunction suggests an illumination of key details or choices, but the tense aspect to Jupiter suggests discord between these details versus the enthusiastic exposure of deep truths. There needs to be an adjustment between depth and flexibility, illumination and secrets.
Ultimately, there's an important truth here, but the key will be seeing it for what it is, without exaggeration. Jupiter is Rx, so there is an intensive focus on one matter. But that focus can result in tunnel vision that interferes with what you're hearing or seeing.
Note that Mercury and the Sun will also be applying to a square to Neptune (June 6th). Neptune will make the truth difficult to see and understand. Facts will be blurry and the line between fact and fiction will shift. Nonetheless, something important will be illuminated on this day, and it may be a lie. Look closely at what's happening and carefully consider what you're hearing.
