The Moon continues its transit of Cancer until 9:14 AM EDT, when it enters
Sun semi-squares Chiron this morning, and while we may be hungry to learn, grow,
improve, and heal, we may be temporarily low on confidence and worried about
making poor decisions. A First Quarter Moon occurs this evening when the Sun in
Taurus forms a square with the Leo Moon. There is
a crisis theme surrounding any quarter Moon phase, as we feel compelled
to take action. Shortly after, we are made aware of how our actions
affect those close to us, perhaps through trial and error. Whatever
project or initiative we began around the New Moon is now off the
ground, and it may face its first obstacles.
April brings a mix of outgoing and introspective energy for you, dear Gemini.
On some levels, you are wrapping up a busy year and contemplating your next
steps. However, you're also in high demand socially. The first week of April can
bring powerful revelations, mostly revolving around the roles you play for
others, children, romance, and friendship. Creative projects can reach a turning
point. Relationship problems that have been brewing under the surface can spin
out of control, but revelations made now force you to make important changes.
Whether it's an ultimatum, a break, or the discovery of feelings about someone,
you're now in the position to make changes that were a long time coming. This
can be an important time for those of you who write for a living or as a hobby.
From the 11th, Venus is in your sign, and this serves to boost your personal
magnetism, charm, and attractive power. You're seen in an especially pleasing
light in this cycle that extends through to the first week of May. Even so, a
hiccup on the 13-14 can have you dealing with a disapproving or critical person
who may be feeling a little threatened by your popularity. Motivation to pursue
personal interests or studies increases, particularly from mid-month forward.
Challenges in intimate relationships may not be resolved, but they begin to take
a back seat in your life. You are focusing on the positive and not allowing
complicated emotions drag you down. From the 18th, a friendship can be renewed,
or a new friend can enter the picture. The 21-22 is a strong period for making a
resolution, quitting a bad habit, or making a lifestyle change.
The year ahead is strong for learning, education, and communication, dear
Gemini, as well as nesting, improving your home life, and saving money.
Until August, schooling, teaching, learning, and making connections are favored
as you expand your contacts, mind, and friendships. Joining groups, networking,
and communicating your ideas are in strong focus and beneficial. For some, an
important partnership or friendship can result from your involvement with
school, teams, group work, and causes. If so, you may rather quickly bring this
relationship to a committed level. While networking and casual contact can fuel
your sense of well-being, great rewards can come through developing your
creative skills, as well as your ability to enrich one-on-one relationships. You
are becoming a lot more serious about partnering in 2015, and this trend is just
beginning. Lacks and cracks in an existing partnership can be glaring now, and
the need to do something about them presents itself. Others may be considering
making a relationship more official, or making a commitment.
This is a time for really sorting out your feelings, desires, and passions.
You can feel a great hunger to express yourself through creative channels. Some
of you may be looking to fill their lives through children, and others through
romantic expression. Challenges are part and parcel, but rewards are great.
Friendships and romance bring surprises and turnarounds in April. Towards the
end of the year, family life begs your attention. In fact, opportunities to
improve home life open up, whether this is through larger or more suitable
accommodations, strengthening relationships with family, or creating more joy on
the domestic front. There can be the need to deal with work or health challenges
in the summer. This is a time for structuring your daily life to better
accommodate recent changes, as well as to improve your well-being and
productivity. It's a great time to nail down plans and programs that keep you
adequately busy and organized. By September, Saturn's work in your sector of
work and health will be done, and this eases the pressure on these areas.
Ideally, you've come out of this cycle with a stronger sense of what you have to
offer, and as a result, more joy in the work you do, services you provide, and
the fulfillment of your daily routines and tasks.
The second half of the year is solid for laying down foundations, and this
includes long-term, career or life-plan ones. What you're beginning now may very
well last, so pay close attention to your basic instincts, which will serve you
especially well. This is because, without necessarily even knowing it, you are
more in touch with what's in your heart at this time. Career matters can
confound you at times again this year, as you're testing your boundaries and
limits, looking for something fulfilling and ideally suited, and learning about
what's most important to you. The last week of March brings powerful energy for
starting fresh in a current or new career/life path. Even so, there is less
emphasis overall in 2015 on the role you play to the outside world, and more
interest in your personal life. There can be stress on a relationship as the
result of your struggle with finding a life path or defining your career when
Saturn squares Neptune, from November forward (until September 2016).
Educational pursuits can thrive, particularly from mid-March to June.
From October forward, long-term financial planning and strengthening your
financial picture through some form of pooling resources are favored. There can
be more power and resources available to you to establish yourself, especially
through a home or property, but also for long-term business endeavors.Mercury
retrograde periods this year occur from January 21-February 11, May 18-June 11,
and September 17-October 9. These are important times for reflection, pulling
yourself back a little from the pursuit of your goals so that you can reassess
where you're headed, and looking at your life in new ways. The period from May
18-June 11 occurs in your sign, and this can be a time to work on what you're
projecting to others. From June 6-24, your actions can be especially courageous
and sometimes even over the top. It's a time for going after what you want and
feeling more courage, but do watch for excessiveness that doesn't serve you well
in the long run.
You can begin the year in hot pursuit when it comes to love and pleasure.
However, the planet responsible for this approach, Mars, turns retrograde March
1st, remaining that way until May 19th, and could signal some form of
backfiring. Perhaps your approach is too self-centered or could even be
considered aggressive, and a love interest may feel cornered, or you become less
motivated to continue in the same vein, and a lover becomes confused by your
change in pursuit. This is a time for reassessing how you approach lovers, love
interests, and dating in general. You may decide to employ more strategy or to
think ahead before jumping in. When it comes to romance, have you been getting
back what you've been putting into it? Do you really want what you're after? At
the end of all this introspection, you should be much better off. You'll have
plenty of time to retrace your steps and get back on track from mid-May to July
Venus and Jupiter are major players when it comes to minor and major trends
in your partnerships and dating life. While Venus moves through all of the signs
of the zodiac this year, signaling minor trends, Jupiter transits two sectors of
your chart - the second and third houses. In the first half of the year, you are
most interested in people who make you feel secure, who don't really rock the
boat much, and who you can rely upon - for the most part. With Venus and then
Mars retrograde, this may very well be the safest road, as love can be
complicated, and so can your feelings. Playing it safe can be a good strategy
now. From mid-year forward, there is considerable more interest in sharing,
communicating, connecting, and daily excitement. Your partnership ruler
harmonizes with Uranus in your friendship sector, suggesting that there
can be connections made through friends, online, in your community, and locally.
Some of you could meet love interests through places of learning or while
running errands and on short trips. The second half of 2014 tends to play more
to your personal style, and it's likely to be a happier time for relationships
