Gemini (21 May – 21 June)
It’s a Mercury retrograde month and the planet of communication is your ruling planet. Mercury dives deep into Scorpio up until the 20th, which means you’re wise to put off any major decisions until after this date.
What Mercury retrograde is good for is doing research and fact-finding. Take a step back and look at your life from a fresh perspective. Scorpio is the star sign which rules your work and routine, lifestyle and health. Therefore, it’s these areas in particular where there’s a lot going on.
For some of you, this might mean a health issue flares up or work takes a backwards step. If so, be patient and on the alert for new information or insights that can help. The period around the Full Moon on the 12th is particularly relevant for a number of reasons.
Firstly, the Full Moon shines a light on your situation. It highlights the areas of your horoscope, which include work, health and service to others. Plus, your planet, Mercury, is especially focused during this period, even though it’s retrograde. Mercury is sextile Pluto on the 10th, Saturn on the 13th and trine Neptune on the 13th.
Therefore, this brings support to your situation. Pluto and Saturn are in Capricorn ruling finances in your horoscope and Neptune is in Pisces ruling your career and vocation. These planetary connections first kicked in involving Mercury from October 14th-19th and they’ll be active again from November 28th-December 3rd.
Yet, it’s often this middle phase that is most revealing. The other key planetary aspect to note is a Sun/Mercury conjunction on the 11th. This flags up a theme of illumination. Mercury is in the heart of the Sun bringing light to the dark and clarity to confusion.
Expect this period of the month to be eventful in a good way. Support is at hand, whether you find the right expert or you hear news of a job or new project. This can be in relation to your own work or health or with regard to someone you care for, someone close.
Movement & Motivation
Once Mercury turns direct on the 20th, you can get back on track. This is confirmed because on the 19th, action planet, Mars, enters Scorpio, where it remains until early January 2020. Mars in Scorpio is direct and forthright, encouraging you to take action and get busy over the next few weeks.
You may have to forego some quiet time to get a job completed. Or perhaps, you can finally cut through any muddles or misunderstandings and know what you’re doing and where you’re heading. It’s likely to be a busy lead up to the end of the year.
This is potentially a top month for love and romance, for a couple of reasons. Firstly, you have Mars in Libra up until the 19th and Libra is your romance sector. This is playful and joyful. Perhaps, another reason why you may find work or everyday routine boring and dull. If you’re a typical Gemini, you need a healthy work/life balance to feel fulfilled.
Admittedly, Mars makes some difficult planetary aspects, which began on October 27th and kick in again on the 5th. These are squares to Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn. This could flag up money issues involving a child or lover. Also, some disappointment or a setback, perhaps related to love.
Come mid-November and you’re right to feel optimistic and positive about love relationships. Mars teams up with Jupiter in Sagittarius and your relationship sector on the 12th. This is gorgeous for passion and a great date to plan a get-together.
The other planet in Sagittarius is Venus, the planet of love. Venus moves here on the 1st and remains in this sector of your horoscope until the 26th. This is a gorgeous transit for love and relationships and you’re wise not to miss a moment of this blissful combination.
Plus, on the 24th, there’s a Venus-Jupiter conjunction in Sagittarius. The two best planets coming together in your relationship sector. It promises something special. And, two days later, there’s a New Moon in Sagittarius, on the 26th, a symbol of new beginnings.
No reason not to throw yourself into love and enjoy your close relationships. Also, Jupiter will leave Sagittarius on December 2nd. So, throw caution to the winds and take your next step in love. The stars are on your side, encouraging you to open your heart and let love in.
Also, this month, ensure that you keep on track with your long-term money and career goals. It may not be the easiest time for you on a daily level because of the Mercury retrograde phase. Yet, the stars are urging you to keep your eyes firmly fixed on the future.
The weekend of the 8th to 10th is gorgeous for planning ahead or using visualisation to conjure up dreams and turn them into reality. The end of the month is helpful in this respect too when the money planet, Venus, moves into Capricorn and your joint finance sector on the 26th.
Look out for someone who can help you on around the 28th, a person of influence who has your best interests at heart. Think teamwork and connections and get the right financial expert on your side. This is particularly important if you’re dealing with a challenging financial situation or you’re involved with the authorities.
