Gemini (21 May – 21 June)
Your ruling planet Mercury enters Pisces and your career and vocation sector on the 3rd, where it’s going to remain on and off until April 11th. This could turn out to be a significant period in the year for your work and where you’re heading in life. Do bear in mind, however, that there will be times when you feel confused or you lose your way.
Inspiration & Meanderings
Your planet Mercury isn’t strong in Pisces as there can be too many options or possibilities and it’s hard to know which way to turn. The key with Mercury in Pisces is to trust in life and go with the flow. Rather than trying to work everything out in your head, listen to your heart and what your intuition tells you. Do what feels right rather than what you think is right.
A lot depends on whether you enjoy what you’re currently doing. If you’re living your dream and following your vocation, the first half of February could be inspirational. If you know you’re on the wrong path and bored with your routine, it may seem as if you’re swimming against the tide rather than flowing with life.
If you’re struggling to make sense of things this month, then don’t go it alone. The planet of relating, Venus, moves into Aries and your friendship and group sector on the 7th where it remains until March 5th. Plus, action planet, Mars, is in your opposite star sign Sagittarius up until the 16th.
This puts the emphasis on partnership, teamwork, collaborative ventures and group connections. Coming together with other people in the name of a good cause or simply to have fun and hang out brings a new dimension to your life. And, with the Sun in air sign, Aquarius, until the 19th, seek the bigger picture in life, focus on travel and study and do more of what you love.
You may have some key financial goals from mid-month onwards too, once action planet Mars moves into Capricorn and your joint finance sector on the 16th. This is an ambitious placing for Mars.
It indicates the start of a six-week period when you may have to fight for what’s rightfully yours or recognise that money requires a tough approach. This is, however, primarily March’s theme.
For now, focus on having a good time without it costing the earth and know that timing is the key to successful ventures. This is because your ruling planet Mercury turns retrograde on the 17th and remains on go slow until March 10th.
What’s significant about this Mercury retrograde phase is that it takes place in Pisces at the peak of your horoscope. Plus, Mercury is not on its own in this sector of your chart. There’s a New Moon in Pisces on the 23rd and a major planetary aspect between Jupiter in Capricorn and Neptune in Pisces on the 20th, linking your money and career sectors.
Therefore, notice what’s bubbling away during this expansive and creative period in the month. The New Moon in Pisces is traditionally a date to aim high and follow your dreams. New Moons are synonymous with new beginnings.
This is fertile ground for dreams and imagination and following your feelings to seek inspiration. Also, take note if someone approaches you with an idea for an exciting collaboration. However, with Mercury in retreat, this could be confusing at first. It’s potentially inspiring but not the best time to make important decisions.
If you already work in a creative or compassionate field, this month’s events may feel blissful and transcendent. If you’re currently unsure or at a crossroads in life, you could experience the opposite and feel lost and confused about what next.
It’s important that you’re aware of this key astrology and don’t panic if it seems as if things are falling apart or you can’t see the way forward clearly. For now, go with the flow and do whatever inspires you. Consider new and creative ideas that you can bring to your career and vocation in the future.
This is a strong influence to tap into your right-brain creative way of thinking and leave your left-brain strategist to be helpful another time. This is particularly important if you know that you’re on the verge of something new and ready to explore an alternative path in life.
Plus, this month’s key astrology not only indicates a sea-change but a period of soul-searching. This is because Uranus in Taurus is active in the sign before yours and the most hidden sector of your horoscope. The key dates are the 5th, 21st, 22nd and 29th.
This may stir issues up from the past or connect you with a deeper sense of self. There’s wisdom in slowing down and doing things differently. It’s a rare opportunity to get off the hamster wheel of life and see what lies beneath or beyond. This could be a time of enlightenment or awakening when you’re ready to explore the unknown and set off on a new journey.
This month’s astrology feels important for you with so much going on at the peak of your horoscope, urging you to look to the future and what next. Yet, from mid-month onwards, there’s no need to rush into anything, as much as you might want to. Wait until you have your planet Mercury back on your side mid-March and plan your big moves for then.
