The Moon is in Gemini almost all day, until 11:00 PM EDT, when it enters
Cancer. With a Gemini Moon, we tend to create more movement in our lives. We
tend to seek out others, opinions, ideas, and answers. We adapt easily to
change, and in fact we crave surprise, novelty, and intelligent responses in
others. Its only major aspect today is a trine to Mars this evening, and we tend
to seek out experience rather than wait for things to happen. We tend to be more
resourceful, trust our instincts, and react well to competition.
You're sure to feel freer, more outgoing and positive, and less confined this month, dear Gemini. Recent dilemmas
suddenly seem less difficult, and you're more interested in enjoying the moment than looking to the past for answers
or for happiness. Work matters tend to straighten out, whether it's because responsibilities are clearer or you have a stronger sense of where you're headed. The 12th can bring a need to handle an important financial matter or obligation. Your personal appeal is very strong
all month, but especially until the 18th. People find it easy to admire you! Jupiter makes a big move this month as it moves into a new sign, launching a year-long cycle that brings expanded contacts, interests, and learning opportunities into your life. New avenues can open for communicating, and for some, there can be more time to reach out to others.
This can be an important year for laying down groundwork for future projects, or
building your skills. The last week of July can give you a strong taste for the energies of this transit - there can be new beginnings experienced now. Another big change this month comes on the 26th, when Mars moves into your work and health sector. Motivation for work, projects, organization, and health and fitness programs can increase
during this cycle that lasts until mid-September. Problems with co-workers or employees can surface for some of you.
2014 is a strong year for building and expanding, as well as for learning and
connecting, dear Gemini.
More day-to-day contact with friends and family can be healing and pleasurable.
In the first half of the year, you are continuing a trend in which you are
building and growing your material resources. This is a time of abundance on
some level - you might acquire or purchase something of value that you've always
wanted, invest, or enjoy an increase in business and income. There can be a
strong emphasis on comfort and enjoying simple (and sometimes not so simple)
pleasures. You can take great pleasure in growing a business or enjoying the
comforts of a relationship. Some of the greatest joys and challenges this
year come through your
uniqueness, love affairs, and sharing your heart.
In the first half of the year, these things may be problematic at times. People
in your life, especially children, friends, and lovers, can be temperamental or
there can be large demands on your time and energy.
You need to make a conscious effort to deal with others in a more personal,
involved, and loving manner, rather than falling back on reason and intellect
which detaches you from your feelings. Learning to take personal risks, which
requires a certain amount of self-confidence, will help you to achieve inner
balance and happiness. You need to sort out feelings and desires, and watch for
impulsiveness in love and with money. The second half of the year brings
very strong energy for your social life and for learning, communicating, and new
interests. You're especially sharp now. Your thinking and reasoning processes
mature and grow. You are hungry to learn, to produce, and to share your ideas.
Relationships with siblings, a partner, and even neighbors can improve
significantly. Reaching out even in the smallest of ways can be rewarding and
can even bring new opportunities into your life. Particularly from September
forward, you can experience a newfound feeling of liberation in your thoughts
and in your ability to express yourself. You are finding your voice in some way,
and this can be connected to groups and friendships. Schools or your
neighborhood and community can be important places for meeting new people and
possibly even a partner. You bring an inspired and spirited approach to your
dealings with others, and you are very much appreciated for this. Saturn and
Pluto can act as "nags" this year, reminding you from time to time that you need
to take better care of your health, pay more attention to your work, and dig a
little more deeply into your own inner workings and desires. There can be some
changing of priorities - what used to drive and motivate you may no longer
inspire you. There is a strong need for a higher purpose to what you are doing.
If friends or social affiliations have been holding you back, you may begin to
move with a new crowd this year. Some of you may simply find new and exciting
things to do with current contacts and friends.
2014 is stronger for committed, long-term partnerships than it is for casual
love relationships and the world of dating, which can be up and down or
unpredictable especially in the first half of the year. Even if you don't have a
solid plan, and many of you don't quite yet, write, learn, and absorb as much as
you can this year and until August 2015, because what you produce and the skills
and the knowledge that you acquire now can be used later, possibly for great
profit, when avenues can open up for using and developing these things to your
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
