January Horoscope for Gemini

 (May 21st  - June 20th)

This is a lucky month for Gemini’s. Finances should improve as well as opportunities. With a grand trine connecting work, goals and reward all you have to do is step back and let things happen. You’re changing how you present yourself and how you deal with others – and life gets better.   

Gemini rules the ability to play and the smart ones have turned it into an art. Others pay attention when you can take something serious and make it seem like fun. When a Gemini adds a light touch to a serious topic, they gain distance and power over it. There position doesn’t diminish its importance, but by rising above it, they’re telling the Gods they’re stronger and more powerful than anything they are playing with. Without play, life is routine, boring and filled with just work. Responsibilities are important, they help you develop roots or gain deep and profound experiences that teach you about yourself and others. It is always the balance of opposites that the universe wants you to experience. However, most of us favor one side or the other and thus conflict is created. If you have chosen responsibility rather than play, you’re probably doing your work and everyone else’s. If you’re the rebel and you avoid work, then it’s difficult to get you to show up other than to have a good time. And if you can do both – then you’re a master Gemini.

There are two Full Moons this month one on the 1st which stirs up your 2nd and 8th houses – finances, values and how you connect with the resources of others is the focus this month. Don’t be surprised if opportunities began to knock on your door. Yes, you have the ability to make the kind of money you’ve always thought you deserved. With Mars conjunct Jupiter in trine to the Moon and Neptune – your work and ideas can take you higher than you ever thought you could go. You have a grand trine in water at the beginning of the month, and that’s powerful. It means what you ask for you get.  A reward is coming your way.  On January 31st there will be a total lunar eclipse and it affects your 3rd and 9th houses – adventure, communication and your beliefs. What we discover during a lunar eclipse is our shadow, the fact that we are not perfect beings. Don’t be surprised if you come face to face with your imperfections. This awareness may be triggered through an adventure you take or a challenge to your beliefs. Whatever happens, don’t get discouraged; learn from your mistakes and realize that no one is perfect.

With four planets in Capricorn in your 8th house, you’re serious about making changes, not just with yourself, but how you relate to others. No more hoping for the best and giving without thought of whom you are giving too. Your usual carefree nature will appear more cautious as the Capricorn energy influences your state of mind. With Pluto conjunct the Sun in Capricorn, you feel your power more than usual. Your requests to others will carry a strength that may surprise you. Saturn and Venus in Capricorn will improve your social life and take you out of your routine. Capricorn energy loves to play, but it takes fun to a new level. Your stories have more bite to them, there’s a truth that is revealed and valued. And yet, it’s still entertaining. The experience is short lived, but hopefully you’ll add a new insight and skill to your repertoire.

With Mercury in Sagittarius and trine Uranus you may take an unexpected trip. There is a desire for adventure and breaking free of your routine. It’s wonderful to see the world from a different place; our minds become more agile and less rigid.  It’s one way to learn to let go. Control is not possible when you’re in the unknown and your adventure button is working overtime as new ideas flood your brain. Now that’s how life should be lived.

Relationships are very good this month. Jupiter is ruling your 7th house and it’s conjunct Mars and trine Neptune – add the Moon and it creates a grand trine. If you’re in a relationship, it should go smoothly. You feel supported and strong together. With four planets in water signs there is sensitivity to feelings and an acknowledgement of who you are at a profound level. Isn’t that what you’ve always wanted? It’s what most people want. And if you’re single and looking, you could meet someone amazing. It will happen in your neighborhood or work place. There would be an instant connection, so trust it and don’t let him or her get away.

Neptune in your 10th house of career will challenge you internally. It awakens your destiny and puts you back on the path of your soul’s quest. If you’re working a job you hate, it’s going to get more and more difficult to stay. Stop playing it safe and send out your resume. The more confidence you can muster up, the better the results you get. And don’t forget if you don’t feel it – it’s okay to fake it.  It’s taken you awhile to trust yourself, but now that you do, everything changes. You can’t just override your feelings as you did in the past, who you are is no longer going to accept second place. When you listen to your instincts on a regular bases you find that your decisions are better and so are the results.

Uranus in your 11th house of friends is about to leave Aries and change the friendships in your life. Some will stay and some will go, and if you have been isolated, that too will soon be over. Your soul is ready for new experiences that open doors, make you laugh and challenge you to see the world in a new way.  It’s time to be a part of bigger picture.

The New Year is upon us and there is very little that you can’t accomplish if you make the commitment. New Years are powerful because we see them as a new beginning. Accept change, commit to  yourself and this will be a  year to remember.
