Welcome to Gemini season y’all! It’s getting warmer and hotter now and we’ve had all Taurus season to hang in a cozy spoon cocoon, so now it’s time to flex a few more intellectual muscles (as air signs are wont to do) as the planet of communication takes charge. That’s why, no shock here, our Gemini season sex tip is dirty talk! From sensual whispers in bed to dirty texts sent for LDRs (or some during business hours quarantine fun), it’s a time to make use of the powerful sexy organ living in your skull and really let your imaginations run wild.
“Ruled by the dual sign of the twins, Gemini energy circulates in a quick and frenetic way. Gemini rules communication and this sign inspires witty wordplays and dynamic dialogue. Gemini transits are great for brainstorming and socializing. This sign also craves ‘twin flame’ and kindred spirit energy, and is always up for an intellectual meeting of the minds,” as the Astrotwins say about the third sign of the astrological calendar. “Gemini people can come across as clever and quick-witted, eager to dish out the juiciest pieces of news and happenings to their friends via text message and social media. And in case that’s not enough, they’ll probably send you a Snapchat story for good measure.”
As always, every sign plays with a different season/planet differently! Your chart is full of a whole wealth of cosmic knowledge depending on all the different planets that make up your astrological profile. So check your sun sign (your ego, your regular horoscope sign), your moon sign (your inner self, who you are when drunk, sad and alone) and your ascendant/rising sign (the mask you wear, the things other people might perceive you as) as well as your other planets out for a full zodiac picture. And totally get your chart read by a professional astrologer — they might just blow your mind and it’s such a special experience! But, back to Geminis and talking drrrty!
Ruled by Mercury (which if you remember your mythology is the messenger god, for shorthand), a Gemini isn’t just a strong communicator but has a deep understanding of and stimulation by all the nuances of communication. So that’s why, whether you’re together or apart from your partner, you can boost your sex life with a healthy dose of that energy. How do you communicate in and outside the bedroom? How do you initiate playtime? How do you want your partner to initiate?
“You love everything from the suggestive sidelong glances to the naughty text messages that crescendo into a passionate sexscapade. Games are totally your thing. You love playing them and find people who don’t downright boring. Trouble is, you aren’t always great at distinguishing a fling from the real thing. You need a soulmate who is also your playmate. For you the fun, flirty stuff IS “serious.” Only a few special people understand that — and these are the ones you should go after.”
That fun and flirty talk can be awkward if you don’t feel like you’ve had a lot of practice, if you’re self-conscious or if it just seems out of your ordinary behavior. That’s totally okay! But don’t let it discourage you if this is something you and your partner want to beef up. Start small: practice putting into words what feels good, what you like and what you want to do to/with eachother. Focus more on being present and less on performing “sexy” behaviors for your partner’s benefit (you know what I mean there) and it’ll get easier.
And definitely make use of technology: Spice up your “thinking of you” texts with a suggestion of some fun later on. If you’re wearing (or not wearing) a particularly cute loungewear ‘fit, take a few pics (if that feels good and comfortable for you) and leave room to suggest at what you can do together later.
We love communication in and out of bed to get things just right around here (obviously), but Gemini season reminds you that it can be fun and sexy in itself to do the talking (or the listening). Humans are critters that can be turned on by all sorts of sensations and sounds and words are included in that. So do some thinking: What do you want to say and what do you want to hear?
