The Moon is in Pisces all day, and we are inclined to daydream and perhaps
stray from our regular routine a little. A First Quarter Moon occurs when the
Sun in Sagittarius forms a square with the Pisces Moon at 10:13 AM EST. 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 on December 2nd is
now off the ground, and it may face its first obstacles.
The needs of a partner or close loved one are paramount this month, dear Gemini, and you are in the position to offer support. The New Moon that occurs on the 2nd occurs when your ruler, Mercury, is supported by action-oriented Mars, and brings strong energy for taking charge of your relationships. You have an opportunity to improve or attract close partnerships. Honoring others in your life is especially important, and is your route to fulfillment and success at this point. Being agreeable without compromising your integrity is your best bet, and others will surely take note! You are especially companionable this month. From the 7th, Mars is working in harmony with your sign and bringing energy and animation to your romantic world, as well as your creative impulses. You are especially forward-looking, enterprising, and enthusiastic now, and others are bound to recognize and appreciate these qualities in you. Competitiveness drives you to do bigger and better things. Although you may not be feeling up to par physically, simply because your attention to others could drain some of your energy, this is a strong time for all negotiations and situations that call for compromise. Some of your most natural talents - the things that come easily - meet with reward and acceptance around the 10-12. Focus on the details and the "little things" now. Plans for money and work can be solidified or perfected with great success. The Full Moon on the 17th occurs in your sign, and this can stimulate an important personal revelation. From mid-month, your spirit for making friends is renewed, and if your connections have been unreliable at best, it's a time for trying to fix things. However, from the 21st, retrograde Venus suggests the need to review your connections, finances (especially joint or shared), and romantic life. You might use this time to review past purchases or to handle financial matters such as taxes that you have put off. You may be on the fence about a relationship, or you could have some difficulty getting in touch with your desires.
Jupiter continues to move through your sign until June, dear Gemini, and if
you haven't taken advantage of this beneficial cycle yet, Jupiter's direct
motion from February to June is a great time to do so. It's about positive new
beginnings, turning over a new leaf, and expressing yourself without apology. Be
proud of who you are. This is also a good time to attract a partner, or enhance
an existing partnership. Besides putting yourself "out there" and expressing
yourself with confidence, one of the best things you can do for yourself in 2013
is to fine-tune your work, health, and daily routines. You are in need of more
structure when it comes to these things, and while it involves effort and
persistence, you'll thank yourself for doing it. Orderliness will be empowering,
and paying closer attention to deadlines, details, and rules will help tidy up
your own mind and emotions so that you feel freer to enjoy yourself when
pleasure calls, which it is likely to do frequently! The second half of the year
brings a stronger need to feel rooted, secure, and comfortable. If you've played
your cards right, a raise, bonus, large gift, or some other material increase
can come into your life. Even if material benefits are not obvious during
Jupiter's transit of your solar second house (from late June 2013 to July 2014),
it can be a time of indulgence and abundance. It's a great time to build on
existing projects and businesses. In August, however, you may need to deal with
the reality of debts, loss of some form of support, or some power struggles over
money or possessions. There can be some slowdowns in business or work this year,
likely centered around Mercury retrograde periods, but changes you are making
put you in a great position for future, long-term growth. Many Geminis will be
starting or growing businesses this year that will benefit them for years to
come. This will not come without hard work and persistence, but you are likely
to enjoy the process more if you work on those things that really matter in the
long term. Love relationships look strong this year. While in many ways this is
a "me" year, the "we" part is likely to run quite smoothly. However, one or more
friendships may be tested this year, with changing values and lack of support
the larger issues. 2013 is potentially excellent for putting a bad habit behind
you, and health is likely to improve as a result.
in many ways this is a "me" year for you, the "we" part is likely to run quite
smoothly. Your attractiveness centers largely around your ability to express
yourself with more confidence and verve in the first half of the year. This is
due to Jupiter's presence in your sign until June. Jupiter happens to be your
partnership sector ruler, and this generally means that attracting a one-to-one
relationship comes naturally right now. Even so, I don't see 2013 as an
especially other-centered year. You are coming into your own, and it's a year of
self-discovery in many ways.
Generally speaking, you are focused on new beginnings. You are not as interested
in what happened in the past, preferring to move forward without restrictions.
Recently, you've been reinventing yourself, and in the process, there may have
been some people already in your life who have felt a little insecure about the
changes you've been making. Do what you have to do to propel yourself forward,
but be sensitive to those you hold dear.
Serious Saturn left your romance and entertainment sector in October 2012, and
this can feel as if a weight has lifted. You are less self-conscious about
expressing your unique creative vision, and you are not taking things quite as
seriously. 2013 is very much a year in which many of your inhibitions are
leaving you. You feel better about yourself, and this quality alone can bring
more opportunities for love into your life. Partnerships should fare well this
year, unless they are truly holding you back or cramping your style. Partners of
Geminis need to give them some space and room to grow.
From June 25th forward, Jupiter leaves your sign (and won't return for another
twelve years or so), and you tend to settle down. This is a time of truly
appreciating the comforts of life. Your expectations from relationships shift,
with the second half of the year more about enjoying the comforts and security
of a partner than anything. Love needs, and love itself, tend to stabilize.
Venus and Jupiter best represent your committed and casual love relationships.
When Venus is in your own sign, you quite naturally attract others, and this
occurs in 2013 from May 9 to June 2. Even so, you may be a little tentative
about any prospects at that time, and it may not be before June 1st that you
decide to take matters in your own hands. The Lunar Eclipse towards the end of
May brings strong feelings about a relationship to the surface, and Mars
entering your sign at the beginning of June provides you with more courage and a
desire to take action.
