Asteroid Talent in Gemini 2022 General Impact:
Gemini is the sign of the mind, so asteroid Talent touring Gemini can elevate all talents involving the mind. You can benefit if you have a talent for writing, speaking, teaching, or learning, communicating in any way, or using words in any way. Ideas and plans may be of benefit now.
Gemini is the Twins in astrology, so asteroid Talent in Gemini may show we're better able to manage more than one thing at a time. Gemini is dual in nature, and we may have two or more things to focus on, and work on them better than usual.
Gemini rules our community and neighborhood, so if you have a talent for working in your immediate environment or benefiting it in some way, this can be a good time for it.
One other thing Gemini rules is short-distance travel, so anything involving cars, bicycles, trains, walking. If you've got a talent for any of those, that can be elevated.
Asteroid Talent in Gemini 2022 Conjunctions:
While in Gemini, asteroid Talent will make 3 important conjunctions, the first being it will conjunct Mercury retrograde on May 18th. Mercury retrograde begins a few days before Talent enters Gemini, and they come together quickly. This may mean that those who have a talent for retrograde things, like editing, revising, and redoing, can benefit now. It can also mean our talents may be showcased in a different way from usual, something out of the box and what we wouldn't think of. And, those of you born with Mercury retrograde likely benefit from this in a big way personally, and can really showcase your unique abilities.
Asteroid Talent will conjunct the Sun on May 27th, and a new moon will occur in Gemini on May 30th that is conjunct Talent. This can bring great energy for new opportunities using our talents, or shining a light on our talents. We can get recognition, and we can get excited about our abilities. Mercury will conjunct asteroid Talent again on July 1st once it's no longer retrograde, so it may be that there is something begun in mid-to-late May regarding our Talents that is wrapped up or culminates around the start of July.
