February 12, 2016
the Moon in Aries all day, our reactions are quick and decisive. The more
impatient side of this Moon position is likely to come to the fore this morning,
when the Moon forms a square with Pluto and aligns with Uranus. We can
accomplish more if we are careful not to be too hasty. Our feelings and desires
are fiery, immediate, and hard to ignore. The Sun and Moon harmonize this
evening, and we can enjoy increased clarity derived from a feeling that what we
want and what we need are in harmony. We are more able to cooperate with others
under this influence.
The month ahead brings nice opportunities for straightening out money matters, repairing or boosting intimate relationships, publishing and learning, and improving home life,
dear Gemini. There can be advances with money from other sources than personal income, such as through a partner or bank loan, and if a loan is desirable, applying for one before the 16th is preferable. Support for a house or home improvements can be in focus for some. A partnership may be especially intimate in the first half of February. From the 16th, you're a little more detached. The second half of February is strong for studies, learning in general, and exploring new interests and options. You express your feelings and ideas with ease now.
Mars continues to motivate you to take charge of, and perhaps speed up, your work projects, daily routines, and pursuit of health goals. This can be a wonderful time for taking the lead and taking action. You are especially enterprising and quite determined to work at your own, independent pace. Continue efforts to get rid of clutter, eliminate waste that interferes with health and fitness pursuits, and take the initiative to get health check-ups or to launch new fitness and nutrition programs. Be sure you don't overdo these things, particularly around the 7th, when you can be especially impatient
to see results.
On the 2-3, you're seen in a positive light, both personally and professionally. You can be particularly effective and productive. It's a powerful time for quitting a bad habit or making a similar lifestyle change. You might especially enjoy a project that involves redoing and reworking efforts. You are able to see flaws and inconsistencies that you might overlook on another day, and you are tuning in to the tiniest details and finding meaning in them!
The 8-9 is particularly wonderful for strengthening relationships, especially your more intimate ones. It's also strong for financial support, bonuses, and rewards. Your sense of timing is perhaps sharpest around the 13th, and you could find that plans seem to be coming together well. Work and home life are areas of special interest now. There can be a significant improvement to these
matterss, or a project gets a green light. Enthusiasm for growth and development is high. You are more determined than usual to make things happen, and people around you seem to be more inclined to go along with your plans.
The 19th brings the Sun to the top of your solar chart, and this can point to an achievement or a desire to perform. This can be a more ambitious period of the year, when you're especially goal-oriented. Your dreams are very much tied into this around the 24-28, and they can inspire you to make important, stabilizing changes.
Jupiter has been transiting your home and family sector since September, and will continue to bring benefits to your personal life until October. As positive as this may be, there can be something that seems to hold you back from realizing its potential fully. These can be fears and insecurities, particularly stemming from worries that you're not filling all of your responsibilities to the outside world, around the 22-23.
The Full Moon on the 22nd points to an awakening of emotional awareness, and can color many of your feelings and actions in the last week of February. Your need for family or familiar surroundings is strong now, and you're in a better position to get to a good balance between your personal and professional lives.
Family and home life can be especially comforting yet exciting at the same
time in 2016, dear Gemini. The last quarter of the year brings more
opportunities to get out and about and enjoy yourself.
Good energy for the beginning of long-term endeavors and planning continues
this year. You may get the financial backing you need to get started. There may
be some strings attached, but isn't there always? If you believe in what you're
doing, you'll accept the challenges involved.
Career matters and final goals are a bit murky for you at the moment. This is
a continuing theme that can be frustrating at times, but have some faith that it
may not need to be clear-cut for the time being. Focus on what needs to be done
now and explore those things that truly excite and motivate you in your spare
time. It's also important to make the right connections, particularly when it
comes to business partnering, and to cut out the associations that are holding
you back. Ideally, a personal partnership should also be supportive of your
dreams, although there can be some challenges in this respect in 2016, which
tend to sort out after September. You need a savvy partner more than ever, and
you need others to put their faith in you. In all likelihood, an influence that
begins in December and stays with you much of 2017 brings more balance, and
helpful people who share your vision, into your life.
Work can be a little more challenging in the first half of 2016 than it has been in other years.
You may need to make some adjustments and shifts in your activities. Health can
also require you to make important lifestyle adjustments. The positive spin to
this is certainly stronger motivation and energy for improving your daily
routines and habits.
When it comes to family and home life, you're in a great position to enjoy,
expand, and improve. This is one of the sweetest spots of the year, so take
advantage. More suitable, supportive living conditions may be in order now. If
relationships with loved ones could use some repair or boosting, this is the
time to nurture them. Recognize how important your base of operations is to your
life, and focus on developing it to best suit and support your needs.
Saturn's influence on you is rather strong, particularly for those born June
1-11 or with a Gemini Ascendant of 10-21 degrees. A maturing process, particularly when it comes to
partnerships and relating with others one on one, is occurring in 2016.
Relationships can feel heavy, and there can be a bit of a physical drain on you
as you reassess your priorities. Some of you could be seeing the more unflattering side of
committed partnerships, or even of yourselves through the mirror of
relationships, while others enjoy improvements to existing relationships,
although not without some effort and a few challenges. This is not the time to
sweep things under the rug. Face problems head-on.
Jupiter encourages you to explore, entertain, love, and have some fun from
September forward. Creatively speaking, you're in top form now. With some
seriousness and more accountability in a partnership, Jupiter's move to a
romantic and playful sector is a needed breath of fresh air.
The last quarter of the year is about opening up. You're cheerful, taking things
in stride, and confident in yourself. Kids can be a source of great joy for some. People are paying
attention and enjoying you. Opportunities to creatively express yourself emerge.
New or renewed hobbies can be in focus. If you've always wanted to explore a
particular talent or try your hand at a creative hobby, this is the time to do
so. The types of projects and pastimes you take on now are ones that get you out
of bed quickly and happily in the morning. Romance can be especially fun, and
you're more fertile and creative. Day-to-day problems seem less difficult when
your life is enriched with exciting projects.
Saturn is a key player when it comes to one-to-one and committed
partnerships, dear Gemini.
At the tail-end of the year 2014, Saturn entered your partnership sector and
continued here until mid-June, 2015, when it dipped back into your work and
health sector - a time for tying up loose ends. However, Saturn will return to
your partnership sector in mid-September 2015, where it will transit until the
end of 2017.
This is a cycle in which commitment and responsibility to a partner are
important themes. In many ways, this transit is revealing your fundamental needs
through your experiences with others, and especially in one-to-one
relationships. You may be feeling some pressure from outside sources or from a
partner, and some soul-searching is in order. Existing partnerships can undergo
pressures. These are not random tests of a relationship. Rather, they are
pressures that challenge partners to strengthen their bond if it is built on
solid ground. Partnerships built on weak foundations may crack under the
stresses. Single people will also question their needs from an "other". Some of
you will be gravitating towards more mature, grounded, or practical
(Saturn-like) people. Most of you will be looking for quality in your
relationships. Who meets you halfway? Some of you will decide you'd rather be
alone than settle for something that doesn't fulfill you. Ultimately, you will
learn exactly what a close partnership means to you.
During this period, Saturn makes a couple of challenging aspects to planets
in your home, family, reputation, and career sectors, and this can suggest
pressures or strains on relationships due to demands from these areas of life,
and/or vice versa. These are challenges meant to be overcome, and to force
important, healthy changes that get you to a better place of balance. Saturn's
transits are constructive, but there may be some de-construction to take care of
This is a time for really sorting out your needs when it comes to partnering.
While this period is just the beginning, it's an important time for cleaning up
this area of life...cont'd
