The Moon is in Capricorn all day. Jupiter squares Uranus and opposes Pluto
today (Uranus will square Pluto tomorrow, completing a T-square). Tense and
restrictive circumstances that we may have tolerated in the past can reach a
boiling point and feel unbearable now and in the coming days when Mars joins in.
We may take on too many interests, activities, or desires. Exaggerating our
importance or power, either to ourselves or others, should be avoided. Our
belief system could be challenged now, and the need for a major attitude change
arises; or we might have to face narrow-mindedness in others (or in ourselves).
Trying to force our beliefs on others will only lead to frustration. The
tendency now is to push too hard in general, and to ignore the important
details. Thinking in big terms is fine, as long as the more practical details of
any pursuit are also considered.
Venus conjuncts Chiron today, bringing us to important discoveries. It's a
time for building trust in relationships, and for seeing potential in
one another, although the process might feel painful! Insecurities are
revealed and, ideally, cleansed. A new cycle of healing in love begins now.
April is a complicated month, dear Gemini, and for you, the difficulties tend to center around money, friends, lovers, and creative projects. Ironing out problems, particularly when it involves others' issues, can be challenging this month. If you're overconfident about your ability to make money or blinding yourself to problems you might have in the future, then you might take foolish risks. Impulsive spending, especially if you're borrowing from your future, should be tamed this month. Some of you could be facing extra expenses related to children or friends and lovers. However, try not to be pressured into spending more than is necessary - chances are, you don't need to go over the top. Some of you could experience a conflict over someone else's resources or money, or there can be power-related undercurrents that disrupt a friendship. Your relationships are likely to be stormy this month, and quite confusing at times. Jealousy and possessiveness issues can surface.
The 14-15 and then the 21-23 can bring fireworks, especially in love. Long-term goals towards happiness are spotlighted this month after quite a lot of attention to work and responsibilities. Even so, love on the job, involving a superior, or through business could figure in April. Business should subtly improve this month, and you are likely to be backed by superiors. The 10-11 and then 17-20 are
especially strong for business and creative opportunities. There is an
overwhelming need to get extra rest and time to yourself in the last week of
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
