Gemini  [May 21st to June 20th]

#MeTime: Mercury’s squabble with crusty old Saturn this week may be just the blessing you needed.  With four planets in the Twins at the start of week, you need Mercury to be a little more meticulous and attentive in order to anchor you. You just have to be careful not to get too nitpicky or persnickety about things and situations in your life being out of place. (Note: I did not say out of control. Big diff.)  Over the course of the next few weeks, you’re going to have to get comfortable with being in an in-between, floaty space.


#Heartstrings: Years ago I wrote that “giving advice is probably a vice itself.” You may feel like a lot of people are prone to that vice this week and perhaps much of the “advice” will be unsolicited. The key is not to get too biting or snarky about receiving the advice, realizing that it’s an opinion, and like all the opinions that already swirl around your head, you can do with it as you please, including throw it out.  Speaking of vices, you may need to take a hard look at your own vices, whether you do them with someone or alone. This is more an observing phase than a time to fully commit to ridding yourself of it. So if you’re downing one too many Frappuccinos or beers with your buddy and weight loss is your goal, you might want to figure out how to manage that.

#MoneyMoves: Adaptability is your real middle name. It’s usually figuring out your other “true” names that becomes the hard part usually.  You might be spending a lot of time on names lately, or more appropriately, titles. But that’s the funny thing about names and titles.  In actuality, many of them have nothing to do with you, but more so the society that cradles you and creates the titles. You are many things, and as a Gemini, you likely can do many things. However, not a single one of those names or things can define all of you. Society can hold on to whatever “snapshot” of you that it wants, but don’t confuse the photo or image with the real thing.  The square off between Uranus and Pluto may feel like a cultural & social earthquake over the next few weeks.  It’s a call for renewal on a fundamental level, and you may find yourself seeking your place in all of that. You’re in all of it, but no one part of it can define you.  Once you make more peace with that, then the faster and better you can do more of the newer work that’s on tap for you to do.
