The Sun is in Gemini from May 21 to June 21. The symbol for Gemini is The Twins and this shows up in your dual nature.
A key phrase is “I think…” and many Gemini types say this every day. Your ruling planet is Mercury the messenger of the Gods.
Gemini is in the mutable mode meaning you are flexible and dexterous, the element is air suggesting that Twins are intellectual and of the active polarity indicating you are confident and outgoing.
Gemini’s are instinctive communicators and want to make connections with others. You are good at associations and are happy just to know your name. Twins are adaptable, restless and crave variety in life. You can have diverse interests.
You are inquisitive and want to know things to fill your mental database with lots of information. You are the sign of duality and can multi-task like no other. Gemini makes good jugglers and fare well in pub quizzes.

And that’s the lot. It is quite a comprehensive list and one chart may or may not have any mutual receptions.
You may decide to only use the traditional planets from the Sun to Saturn and this would be the case for creating a dispositor tree.
Aspiring Astrologer Activity: Mutual Reception
In your astrology journal and using a chart with a mutual reception, please do the following:
State the two planets in each other’s sign.
Decide if there is a Ptolemaic aspect between them or not.
Interpret the mutual reception pair by considering the planets, signs, houses, house rulers, aspect (or not) and possible energy that can be brought forwards as they are in cahoots with each other (100 words).

Pluto is the planet of power, influence and sex. It represents people who have power over you through your use of their resources or those whom you have the drop on. It represents the loan shark, surgeon, psychiatrist, undertaker, criminal and therapist.
Eris is the planet of the female warrior. It represents the fight instinct in women. It suggests those who will fight for you simply because they are on your team, group or crew. It represents sisters-in-arms.
All of the above should be done when Mercury is not retrograde and preferably not in its shadow period.
When Mercury is retrograde do the following:
Revise your resume
Refresh any cover letters
Get your filing up to date of jobs for which you have already applied
Write a list of companies and people with whom to follow up and contact them again
Research current thinking in your industry
Set up alerts for leads
Schedule second interviews (phone and in person)
Review job offers
Prepare your paperwork for jobs you plan to apply for after Mercury is retrograde as you wait for it to go direct
During Mercury retrograde periods you can follow up and work on things that you have already done when Mercury was direct.
Don’t start new things when Mercury is retrograde because if you do they will most likely be reversed when Mercury goes direct.
Sometimes you have no choice because a job advert or interview comes up when Mercury is retrograde and you need a job so you have to go. In these instances be aware that the terms will change.
As Mercury goes direct after the retrograde period, and if you did apply for a job or had an interview during the retrograde time, you can expect to return again and again for further interviews, or the job itself is shelved, or the job is morphed into something else altogether.
When Mercury is retrograde, avoid starting new things because if you do, you will have to review them later as Mercury goes direct.
Companies usually act in good faith when they place an advert for an opening in their business, but the effect of Mercury retrograde changes the terms or the agreement and thus they may no longer need the person that they were originally looking for when Mercury was retrograde.
This cuts both ways for people looking for work and recruiters.
Companies and career consultants are better off only placing vacancy adverts when Mercury is direct and communications are clear.
If a recruiter seeks a candidate during the retrograde period they will have to spend three times as long emailing back and forth and interviewing people that cancel and can’t make it for whatever reason.
All of this time-consuming effort is due to the Mercury retrograde effect which impacts communications, trade, and agency.
