The following is your 2012 horoscope, dear Gemini.
Areas of Expansion in 2012 for Gemini: Spirituality, Personality
Your Gemini 2012 Horoscope points to areas of life that are destined to expand and grow.
Until June 11, 2012, your spiritual world, compassion, private life, and tolerance continue to expand and grow. Matters from the past are magnified in your life now. You continue to sort through what attitudes serve you well, and what behaviors need to go in order for you to grow and improve - a cycle that began in June 2011. This is generally a warm, protective cycle. Your close personal relationships tend to be private and possibly involve some sacrifices.
Potential negatives: Escapism. You might often be tempted to escape your everyday responsibilities and challenges, and should avoid reliance on drugs, drinking, or other "glamorous" forms of escape.
However, for the most part, you are likely to feel emotionally secure and supported during this cycle. Your perceptions heighten. Your ability to make sacrifices for others increases.
From June 11th onward, your personality, image, and confidence in yourself are expanding to new levels. Jupiter is now transiting your sign - a cycle that lasts approximately one year and that only occurs once every twelve years. Dear Gemini, you are seeing whole new possibilities. Your vision of life is now panoramic. Your confidence in yourself and faith in the world grow exponentially. Freedom is something you seek, but be wary of the costs of freedom when it's pursued without necessary attention to responsibilities. Your specific responsibilities this year, besides the "usual", are outlined in the next section.
You are likely to find that a current partner or significant other seems quite supportive of your efforts towards self-improvement, and has your better interests at heart. Single Geminis will likely enjoy more opportunities to partner during this cycle. While you may have struggled with your personal philosophy and belief systems earlier this year, now you feel confident about your behavior aligning with what you believe is right.
You won't feel much like sitting around during this period of your life. You are hungry for new experiences. Everyday stresses that may have frustrated you in the past now seem almost inconsequential, as your vision is lifted above the mundane. As such, your ability to manage stress and pressure increases. You are more tolerant in your attitude towards others.
Potential negatives with this position: Weight gain, pompous behavior, restlessness, over-confidence, wastefulness. See to it that these things don't ruin an otherwise excellent period.
Areas of Contraction and Lessons in Simplicity: Creativity, Love, Dating, Romance, Children, Work, Daily Routines, Health
Your Gemini 2012 Horoscope points to areas of contraction, restriction, and necessary "slimming down" in order to test for stable foundations. There are always areas of life that require more simplicity. Tests may be part of the picture as you learn that life with only growth and expansion can run away with itself.
Until October 5th, the area of your life requires a "back to basics" approach is the sector that rules creativity, dating and romance, pleasure, children, hobbies, and creative pastimes. There may be tests of sorts in these areas of life, as if the universe is checking that the foundations are strong. Things built on weak foundations may very well crack under the pressure of these tests. Those that are strong will endure and strengthen. This influence has been with you for some time, and certainly throughout 2011. Some of you will have felt it more strongly in the past, and others are becoming more aware of the influence in 2012.
Tests can come to your romantic life during this cycle. For those of you who are single, there can be some reluctance to enter into light-hearted romantic relationships. If you do, you do so cautiously, and you are attracted to more mature or stable people during this cycle. Because you are more discriminating now, the pickings might seem to be slim.
Those of you who are dating might feel some loneliness, as it can be hard to find what you are looking for at this time. An existing romance may be tested but strong ones strengthen further. Those Geminis who are in committed partnerships could find the romantic or fun element of the relationship is strained during this cycle. Keeping this aspect of your partnership alive requires work. A romantic partner could feel like a "heavy" at this time, and you might feel restricted in terms of making acquaintances and enjoying other people's company. For those single and looking, be careful that you don't project a negative attitude without even realizing it, as this can intimidate some.
Those of you who are parents could feel the weight of responsibilities towards children during this cycle. They may require more of your attention now.
Creatively speaking, you are a little more serious in your approach. You might be turning a hobby into a business now, or you might find that there is less time for creative hobbies, pastimes, and entertainment.
From October 5th onwards, the area of your life that requires a "back to basics" approach is the sector that rules work, health, daily routines, employees, pets, and habits. There may be tests of sorts in these areas of life, as if the universe is checking that the foundations are strong. Things built on weak foundations may crack under the pressure of these tests. Those that are strong will endure and strengthen. This influence begins October 5th, 2012, and is with you until September, 2015.
Tests can come to work and working relationships during this cycle. Responsibilities in your daily life can weigh heavily - they appear magnified, although Jupiter's influence in your sign from June forward can certainly help to minimize this.
For those of you unhappy with your job or out of work, you are not likely to jump to grab just any position now. You are looking for something mature, long-term, and reflective of your values. Because you are more discriminating now, the pickings might seem to be slim. There can be confusion about where you are headed, ultimately, in your professional life.
The monotonous part of your work can seem harder to take, and it's up to you to work on restructuring enough to make it work for you. Try not to see flaws and complain. Take it upon yourself to make whatever adjustments you can that will improve your working conditions.
This can be true of daily routines, not just working conditions.
Health matters might be a little more problematic than usual. With your attitude change in June (until June 2013), however, this part of Saturn's influence is likely to be minimal.
Areas of Excitement, Innovation, Independence, and Speed: Career, Reputation, Friendships
Your 2012 Gemini Horoscope points to areas of your life that seem to speed up so that you are able to take some risks, innovate, and revolutionize.
Last year you entered a lengthy period in which friendships and group associations may be unpredictable and unusual, but also inspiring and exciting. This influence continues throughout 2012. You are more attracted to people who are free-spirited, individualistic, and possibly even eccentric. Your social life is bound to be very colorful this year and in coming years. Challenges in friendships may come when Uranus squares Pluto in June and September.
Areas of Change, Purging, & Transformation: Finances, Intimacy, Personality, Partnerships
Your 2012 Gemini Horoscope reveals areas of life in which change and transformation take place. It's a time for "out with the old, in with the new".
Attitudes towards dependencies on others, finances, and intimacy continue to transform this year. March is strong for these matters.
In 2012, your personality and your partnerships are evolving in important ways. How you define "me" and "you" is transforming. Issues of personal courage, confidence, and independence come to the fore. Issues surrounding personal appearance, your body, and your image become especially important. Basically, you will be learning to stand on your own two feet! For some, marriage or divorce will be an issue. For most, carving out a personal identity that includes a significant other who furthers their own personal growth will come into strong focus.
Your Planetary Ruler in 2012: Your ruler, Mercury, moves through the zodiac fairly quickly, and reflects your many and varied interests. Mercury's retrograde periods are times for reflection and perhaps some backtracking. In 2012, Mercury retrogrades three times (which is quite common), and these periods are from March 12 to April 4, July 14 to August 8, and November 6 to 26.
