Gemini - April 2020
Hello Gemini! That incisive mind will be racing with opinions, facts and ideas in April, as your ruler, Mercury, zips through the heavens at breakneck pace! After his recent retrograde period he is keen to make up for lost time, and he will be speeding through three different areas of your solar chart before the month is out. This can create a feeling of being overloaded with other people’s demands or requests, and it’s really important that you make space to relax and unwind. He lingers in your career sector until the 11th, where discussions about your ambitions and progress will be more prevalent and should have positive outcomes. He then spends the days of the 12th to 27th pepping up your friendships with new and interesting faces and intellectual debates. After the 27th Mercury will pass into your house of secrets, a time when expressing your thoughts could be a little difficult, as a period of much-needed introspection and reflection takes hold. The new Moon of the 23rd will also help you to rest your mind with some quiet time and meditation.
Saturn made an important sign change in March, and is now exerting his stoical influence on your house of travel and higher education. Saturn is a stern taskmaster and one of his roles is to push you to take ownership of your life choices and actions. In this respect you may suddenly be reminded of your responsibilities, and it could be a rather serious period in which travelling or studying feels onerous, inasmuch as completing such activities will become functional and simply about fulfilling commitments, rather than enjoying yourself. Courses of study now are more likely to involve practical or vocational subjects such as finance, business studies or accountancy. Saturn does come into conflict with Uranus , in a difficult square which will last until the end of the year, and this may hinder your spiritual development, as life in all its mundane practicality seems to get in the way of your psychic and intuitive expression.
Neptune conjuncts Mercury from your work zone during the first week in April, a highly inventive and creative combination of energies which will allow you to wow your bosses, customers and colleagues with your imaginative suggestions. It’s a particularly positive time for writing of all kinds, the more innovative and original the better. Neptune and Venus become entangled in a tricky connection after the 20th which will persist until the end of May as Venus begins to lose speed to prepare for her next retrograde spell. This could create some issues around your sense of identity in the work place, as others try to take advantage of your generosity and gentle offers of support. You may find it necessary to shut these negative people down in order to protect yourself. Creative differences with work mates are also likely during the last week of the month. Stay true to your vision.
The full Moon on the 8th shines a light on love and leisure, and after a stressful start to the month, in which you may have felt you had no time for yourself, this will be a period of letting your hair down and doing something simply for the fun of it. A love affair which has recently consumed you might lose momentum at this time, and you will need to decide what you want to happen next. Pluto slowing down in your house of emotional intimacy and commitment in readiness for a direction change on the 26th, could intensify the need for freedom from emotional burdens here. Have an amazing April!
