It would be fair to say that in 2020 you won’t always have the full picture, Gemini. The rare and powerful Saturn-Pluto conjunction falls in one of the most mysterious and complex zones of your chart, and this conjunction faces a series of challenges from other planets throughout the year. As a result, you may often feel as though you’re swimming in the dark, so trust will be very important. Trust in yourself, trust in the eventual outcome, and trust in those you love.
2020 will also be a year when your values are challenged and perhaps sometimes broken. Moments of astrological drama or crisis may force you to act differently than how you imagined you would, and you may resent letting yourself down. Here, forgiveness is key. Walk on a path which upholds your true values, Gemini, but recognize that you’re not perfect and you can’t always be right.
The year begins with the Saturn-Pluto conjunction settling into place in January, along with a Lunar Eclipse in your values zone and warrior planet Mars transiting your relationship zone. A rocky beginning indeed, perhaps with plenty of angry outbursts.
With Mars putting you on war footing in February, Venus shifting into your privacy zone in March and Pluto turning Retrograde in your mysteries zone in April, this period is likely to be a heated and a somewhat tense time. You’ll need to enjoy quiet moments when you can, and to find peace and solace in nature if nowhere else. Gemini needs downtime, now more than ever. May continues this theme a bit, with Venus turning Retrograde in your own sign, damping down your natural sunniness, and Jupiter turning Retrograde in your mysteries zone, adding yet more intrigue and drama to the background undercurrent.
June could be make-or-break time for a loving relationship, Gemini, which is challenged by two eclipses: A Solar Eclipse in your values zone and a Lunar Eclipse in your love zone. A tense July sees something of a stand-off in your personal life, as the Sun opposes the loose Jupiter-Saturn-Pluto conjunction, bringing your values and your love life into conflict once again, backed by another Lunar Eclipse.
Hang in there, Gemini. From August onward, the tension will ease as sunny Venus slips into your values zone and spreads some calming, soothing balm. Astrology shows that communication gets a lot easier in September, and in October Venus lends her light to your family zone, surrounding you with comfort and love.
2020 isn’t over yet, however, and a Lunar Eclipse in Gemini in November challenges you to remember who you are and what you stand for. Your relationships are in the spotlight again in December, with a Solar Eclipse in your love zone. Once Jupiter shifts into your adventure zone in late December, a breath of fresh air enters your life. The rather wonderful Jupiter-Saturn conjunction in your adventure zone as the year ends suggests that new horizons are just around the corner for you. 2020 is a tough ride at times, but you’ll end the year more certain than ever of what you value, and why.
Love and Romance
The mysteries zone of your birth chart, where the important Jupiter-Pluto conjunction reigns all year, is also associated with sex, intimacy and passion, so Gemini, your love life in 2020 looks set to see some drama. Indeed, you may start the year on an argumentative note, as Mars transits your love zone. A lack of patience with your sweetheart is likely to lead to heated arguments and misunderstandings in January, but once Mars shifts into your intimacy zone in February, intense jealousy could become a problem too. Relationships at this time could easily swing from one extreme to another, or you may find yourself in an intoxicating – but ultimately toxic – situation.
In March, Venus makes a series of trines to Jupiter, Saturn and Pluto which highlight the mysterious and somewhat otherworldly nature of your relationships. Expect to feel a psychic connection to your partner, or perhaps to uncover hidden information about them, which will set your Gemini curiosity on fire. This is neither good nor bad in itself; how you react to it will be key.
Pluto turns Retrograde in your intimacy zone in April, but Venus arrives in your own zodiac sign. The net effect is that you’re able to put a brave face on a tense love situation, but deep down, you’re worried. When Venus also turns Retrograde in May, you may struggle to maintain your composure or be easily upset. It’s important to keep talking throughout this period. It’s only as much of a crisis as you allow it to become, Gemini. Indeed, the Lunar Eclipse in your love zone in June could be a healing event; it does not necessarily suggest the beginning of a problem.
There is likely to be undeniable tension in your relationship through July, however. Astrology suggests that this is because the Sun forms a series of oppositions to the loose Jupiter-Saturn-Pluto linkup, pitting your own deeply-held values against your love life. It could be that you’re involved in something illicit and you feel guilty about it, or perhaps you know that you’re being overly suspicious or overbearing with your partner – but you just can’t help it. A Lunar Eclipse in your intimacy zone in July suggests someone is being under-handed. Tread carefully at this time.
So, a somewhat tense start to the year it may be, but the last quarter of 2020 holds promising news for your love life, Gemini. In mid-October, Venus trines the Jupiter-Saturn-Pluto trio, suggesting that warmth and love from a family vibe will trump any underhanded nastiness, interference from others or misplaced jealousy. Once Venus shifts into your fun zone in late October, you should be feeling much happier – and this is the perfect time for dating someone new if you’re single, or for just having fun, Gemini style.
There is one last challenge on the horizon, in the shape of a Solar Eclipse in your love zone in December. However, Venus at this point is smoothly sailing through the same area, so you should be able to end 2020 on a romantic high.
Career and Money
Because the major Saturn-Pluto conjunction falls in an area of your chart often associated with money, there will be inevitable financial changes along the way in 2020. You’ll get a taste of this straight away, with a Lunar Eclipse in your money zone in early January. A shock bill or a sudden expense may take you from feeling comfortable and secure to suddenly feeling rather vulnerable. It’s a timely reminder, Gemini, to not take too much for granted in this complex year.
Elsewhere, however, the signs are good that you start the year on a confident note in our professional life. Venus is in your career zone, so you’re making a good impression at work and you’re able to do well in sales, marketing or anything which requires persuasion – always a Gemini strength. Watch out for Mercury turning Retrograde here in February – keep your actions above-board and don’t be tempted to get involved in anything underhand. Mars moves into your resources zone, urging you to make more money, but how you make it will truly matter.
May could see a decline in your income for a period, as bountiful Jupiter turns Retrograde in your resources zone. However, ambitious Mars arrives in your career zone – you may be working harder, but for less financial reward. Does that matter? Not necessarily, if the emotional or spiritual rewards are good enough for you.
A slightly trickier time comes in June, with an intense Solar Eclipse in your money zone and a Mercury Retrograde in there too. With the Sun opposing the Jupiter-Saturn-Pluto trio through July, there is clear astrological tension between your money zone and your resource zone, or to put it another way, between your material values and less tangible values. There’s a Lunar Eclipse in your resources zone in July too. Taken together, these energies are about the morality of how you make your living. Gemini, you’ll need to balance your desire to make money with your desire to do good. Not always easy by any means.
Financial pressure may ease during August, when luxury-loving Venus moves into your money zone, although that probably means you’ll be over-spending again. Try to reign it in, especially ahead of the Venus-Jupiter opposition at the end of August. You don’t have to spend like crazy in order to invite abundance into your life!
During the second half of 2020, the key message is to avoid financial risks. Financial matters should be relatively steady until the end of the year from this point, but bad decision making, or an irrational risk could land you in trouble again, Gemini, especially when the Sun squares the Jupiter-Saturn-Pluto trio in October. The key to ending 2020 on a financially secure basis is to consolidate what you have instead of demanding more.
2021 is packed with opportunities for spiritual growth and learning for your zodiac sign, Gemini – although with three tense Saturn-Uranus squares activating the religious and spiritual elements of your chart, this is not always going to be an easy ride.
The second week of January sees Mercury, Jupiter and Saturn all in Aquarius, your learning zone, but in difficult approaching aspects to both Mars and Uranus, in your spiritual zone. When Mars conjuncts Uranus on January 20th, you may find yourself explosively questioning your faith or your beliefs – but with Mercury turning retrograde on January 30th, finding answers will not be easy.
It’s in mid-February that the first of the Saturn-Uranus squares reveals tension between what you think you already know versus how much more there is to know, spiritually speaking. When Mars arrives in your own zodiac sign in March, you’ll be doubly driven to explore and to find answers, particularly when Mars trines Saturn on March 21st. A difficult square between Mars and Neptune early in April, however, warns you to be careful of scams or ‘gurus’ who claim to know the one true path.
During May, Gemini, your focus briefly turns away from faith when Jupiter leaves your learning zone and moves into Pisces, your career zone. Between early May and June 20th, you can make a great deal of material progress. Watch out for the Lunar Eclipse in your love zone, Sagittarius, on May 26th, however, when pressure from work may make loved ones feel second best. Mercury turns retrograde in your own zodiac sign at the end of May, making it doubly difficult for you to calm these fears in your loved ones, Gemini. The Solar Eclipse in your own sign on June 10th may be your signal that something has to change, both at work and in your faith. Hot on the heels of the eclipse, the second of the Saturn-Uranus square may again ignite spiritual frustrations and anxieties.
A relatively quiet July and August in astrology finds you working on your family harmony and trying to sort out your work-life balance, with a series of helpful trines August assisting in this. In terms of your ongoing spiritual quest, Gemini, you can expect insight around October 18, when Jupiter turns direct in Aquarius and your learning zone, opening up a wealth of possibilities for spiritual and personal growth. Around the same time, both the Sun and Mars trine Jupiter from Libra and your creative zone, suggesting that a playful approach to spiritualty will pay dividends in October.
The new path you have discovered may prove to be difficult in practical terms, however. The Lunar Eclipse in mid-November highlights tension between your spirituality and your everyday life, as does a tense Mars-Uranus opposition just days beforehand. When the December 4th Solar Eclipse in Sagittarius pinpoints your relationship zone, it would be sensible to seek your partner’s support for your new spiritual reality.
The final Saturn-Uranus square occurs in late December, but by this time you should have made progress in discovering how to further your spiritual quest. The arrival of Jupiter into Pisces and your career zone for the second time in the last couple of days of 2021 signals that the time for introspection is over. Your spiritual path is settled, Gemini; turn your attention now to your material path.
Love and Romance
It’s a reflective and somewhat secretive start to your love life in 2021, Gemini, with Venus active in your personal growth area, and trine Uranus in your secrets zone. You will be happiest keeping your private life private at this time – at least until an adventurous Venus-Jupiter conjunction on February 11th which suggests there may be cause for celebration!
The well-meaning influence of friends could impact up on your love life in April when Venus squares up to Pluto and others attempt to control what’s going on. However, a stabilizing Venus-Saturn square in late April is reassuring and suggests that an existing relationship will not be too troubled in the first quarter of 2021.
Venus arrives in your own sign early in May, Gemini, and a potent Venus-Pluto trine on May 20th is notable for its desire for freedom. This could manifest in romantic travel, or perhaps a compulsive desire for someone from another culture. If you are single, this could be an interesting time to date someone new. However, the Lunar Eclipse in your love zone on May 26th is a timely reminder that relationships of all kinds have consequences. Don’t play with fire and then complain about being burned, Gemini.
Since the Solar Eclipse on June 10th is in your own sign, you are likely to feel exceptionally emotional, and any illicit relationship issues may well come to a head at that point.
August is a good time for focusing on family life. Venus’ trines to Uranus and to Pluto will be helpful for this, although the Venus-Neptune opposition on August 10th does warn against trying to keep secrets within the family. Venus transits Libra and your fun zone for a few weeks from mid-August, so make the effort to keep things interesting with your partner. If you’re single and seeking excitement in love, the Venus-Jupiter trine on September 6th is another interesting moment. With Venus moving through your love zone in October, a new relationship might take root quite quickly. Remember, however, that secrecy could still be an issue – anything illicit in love is likely to come out into the open during the Lunar Eclipse on November 19th.
The Solar Eclipse in early December is in your love zone and could signal drama around a relatively new relationship; however, it could also be a positive factor for an enduring relationship, allowing both parties to clear the air. Mars shifts into your love zone on December 13th, boosting passion even though it also boosts argumentative behavior. Venus turns retrograde in Capricorn and your intimacy zone on December 19th, so this would be a good time to seek couples therapy or any other counseling your relationship may need. Once Venus turns direct again on January 1st, 2022, your love life should feel refreshed and renewed.
Career and Money
Although your career is not your top yearly priority during 2021, it’s worth remembering that your learning zone, so triggered by the three Saturn-Uranus squares, is also relevant to your career – in terms of training and further qualifications, at least. Look out for training opportunities in February, June and December when the Saturn-Uranus squares are activated and seize any chance to stretch and develop your skills.
A crisis of confidence around your career and your own abilities could be triggered by the Mars-Jupiter square in late January, Gemini, but the Sun-Jupiter conjunction a week later should help to restore your self-belief. As well as the potential learning opportunities around the Saturn-Uranus square in mid-February, you might also find ways to incorporate your growing spirituality into your business life, especially when Mars trines Pluto on February 25th.
In late April, Mars shifts into your money zone, and this can be a satisfying and busy period for you, especially if you would like to investigate new side hustles or to start a new business. You will also be better at selling your own skills during this period, so it’s a fine time to seek promotion. It’s May 13th to June 20th which is set to be your most productive period of the year, however, once Jupiter shifts into your career zone for a few weeks before turning retrograde. Take every opportunity at this time to shout your talents from the rooftops, Gemini.
June’s Solar Eclipse in your own sign can bring personal upheaval on many levels, including your career and working life, and the second Saturn-Uranus square on June 14th is unsettling too. However, lots of training opportunities – or perhaps teaching and mentoring opportunities – are suggested in July, particularly when a Mars-Saturn opposition stabilizes your position and your expertise.
During late July, watch out for some work-life balance issues when first Venus and then Mars opposes retrograde Jupiter in your career zone. August and September are relatively calm in terms of work-related astrological aspects, so you can use these months to breathe and to consolidate your progress so far.
Get ready for a burst of creativity early in October when the Sun conjuncts Mars, and then a few weeks later when Mars trines Jupiter. This is a fertile period for new ideas and innovations. There is such a thing as too much innovation, however, as you may discover when Mars opposes Uranus in mid-November, just before the Lunar Eclipse.
December sees tension created by the final Saturn-Uranus square, but it also brings a very welcome burst of energy and enthusiasm on December 29th when Jupiter arrives back into your career zone for the second time. This time it will hang around – so by late December you should be feeling positive and inspired about your career possibilities into 2022 and beyond.
