You're unusually emotional this September, but you can put those feelings and energies to good, constructive use. There could be conflict between your blood family and your in-laws on the 2nd and 12th, when Venus and Mars make successive squares to Jupiter. Everyone has been pretending to get on, but the masks slip. Added to this, your sweetheart may be struggling with your lack of family time, especially between the 4th and 10th, when Venus, Mercury and the Sun all take turns opposing Neptune and spreading dissatisfaction.
The reality is nowhere near as bad as you both think but it's easy to get things out of proportion at this time. Fortunately, a very constructive Mars-Saturn trine on the 8th brings a reality check and some bright ideas for improving the situation. The Full Moon on the 14th falls in your career zone and helps you to use your emotional attachment to your work to find a family-time compromise which works. On the same day, Mercury and Venus both move into your joy zone, so you can expect the mood to lighten considerably.
Family matters improve greatly too on the 19th, when Mars trines Pluto - where there's a will, there's a way, even if you have to make the first move towards forgiveness. Two difficult squares to Saturn - one from Mercury and one from Venus - lower the mood again a little on the 22nd and 25th, especially if an in-law deliberately ruins an event. However, Mercury squares up to Pluto on the 26th and helps you to wrestle back control - for good.
2019’s energies support introspection and reflection for your sign, Gemini. This is a good year for taking stock of where you are. Spiritual and philosophical vibes swirl around you throughout the year, allowing for much spiritual and personal growth – however, these vibes can be quite vague, so it will be easy for you to lose your way at times. In January, June and September, optimistic Jupiter squares up to nebulous Neptune, and these are periods when you may be especially vulnerable to denial, overly idealistic or have self-blame.
When rebellious Uranus arrives in your spiritual zone in early March, you’ll feel the need to question your long-held beliefs and values. Driven by a strong humanitarian urge, you’ll want to do good in society – but there’s a strong sense of privacy here too, so you’ll be happier working behind the scenes or donating anonymously to good causes rather than being seen to be philanthropic. A New Moon in your own sign in early June is a good time to re-set your image and to re-define your boundaries. Make it clear to those around you what you will and will not tolerate.
When Mars squares up to Uranus in July, problems with your privacy may come to a head. Be very careful with social media at these times, as what you say can easily be twisted against you. Once Jupiter arrives in your psychology zone in December, you’ll start to feel more optimistic and back in control again.
Loving Venus arrives in your romance zone in early January, so 2019 gets off to a positive start for an established relationship. The first quarter of the year is the best time for a wedding or an engagement. If you’re single and looking for love, January 22nd is a stand-out day, blessed with a beautiful Venus-Jupiter conjunction in your love zone – watch out for a lucky coincidence which could bring you into contact with someone very special.
Mars arrives in Gemini at the end of March. This boosts your confidence for sure but can also make you come across as slightly aggressive – if you’re dating at this time, try not to appear too scary or full on! Venus shifts into your sign in June, softening your image once more and enabling you to show off the very best of your lively, funny, sociable self.
The Northern Hemisphere’s Fall is an exciting season for you this year, with both Venus and Mars arriving in your dating and passion zone. Relationships will pick up pace and fabulous memories can be made. As the end of the year approaches, Venus eventually makes her way back into your romance zone, so any relationship which starts with a bang in the previous months may well settle down to something more sustainable then. Overall, the year offers many pleasant and romantic interludes, but do watch out for rose tinted glasses in January, June and September – you may be reading too much into someone else’s signals at these times.
During 2019 your work focus shifts slightly: this year, you’ll want to make more money and you’ll be less concerned than normal with job satisfaction. So long as your finances improve, you’re willing to work extra hard or to pursue a path which doesn’t really interest you. In other words, you’re willing to pay a higher price than normal for a healthy bank balance. Fortunately, the planets line up to assist you with this. Late January, June and November are periods when your inner strength and determination drives you forwards, regardless of circumstances.
Watch out for some issues in March, when Mercury turns retrograde in your career zone. At this point you may struggle to make your voice heard, or you may find yourself being passed over. Help is at hand later in March when Venus shifts into your career zone – this is the time to turn on the charm and to use your considerable interpersonal skills to keep yourself in the game.
In May, ambitious Mars charges into your money zone, bringing you both the drive and the opportunity to increase your income. There is still a lack of focus on your actual career path – perhaps you’ll enjoy setting up a side hustle at this time or experimenting with freelancing outside of work. Expect a small financial shock in early July when a Solar Eclipse occurs in your money zone, but otherwise the year looks to be full of financial abundance, even if the way you earn the money doesn’t fill you with excitement.
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.
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.
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.
