Gemini - February 2019
Hello Gemini! Life could be quite an adventure in February, as the new Moon of the 4th sends you on an exciting trip to somewhere unusual! Opportunities will arise around this date for you to get away from the hum drum of your everyday routines and try something new; the Moon also connects with Mercury at this time, maximising chances to study a new subject. Modern languages, philosophy, politics and the law will be especially appealing now, and you will be more attracted to spiritual and psychic development. Jupiter also influences matters from your house of partners, hence you could meet a new love partner on a trip or study course. The full Moon of the 19th illuminates your domestic zone, and will turn your attention to your private and home life. If things have not been overly harmonious here, it’s time to work out a plan to put things right. Mars’s assertive and dynamic influence allows you to work through negative emotions which may have been festering for some time.
The Sun brightens up your career sector after the 19th, and you will quickly find yourself in the spotlight in your working world, as your natural ability to take the initiative in difficult situations becomes apparent. It may be harder for you to follow instructions from superiors under the influences of this transit; you will be sure of your own opinions and your self-esteem levels will be dependant on your ability to demonstrate leadership skills and command respect. Mercury is also in this part of your chart from the 11th, and between the 17th and 27th he will be a key player in creating important advancement opportunities for Geminis. His links with Saturn and Pluto provide the perfect environment for you to take control of challenging situations or groups of people, and an imaginative combination of Mercury/Neptune energies enhances your creative and problem-solving skills. Watch for difficulties between Mercury and Jupiter, however, putting a strain on working relationships with over confident business partners.
Money matters will receive a gentle helping hand from Venus in February, as she turns her attention to your debts, loans and taxes after the 4th. It will be easier to obtain credit at this time; you may also find that interest rates and repayment amounts on credit cards, loans and mortgages are very favourable. Venus’s conjunction with Saturn from the 13th to 21st is fabulous for straightening up accounts and making a plan for how to tackle debts. Practical discussions with loved ones about joint finances are also likely. Take care when Venus and Pluto hook up after the 19th, however; temptation to spend money you haven’t got will be strong, and you will regret impulsive purchases later!
Mars is feeling hot under the collar in your friendship sector until the 14th, hence you may find discussions with friends seem to have aggressive undertones during the first fortnight of the month. Uranus is also vying for attention here, and between them these erratic bundles of energy create an irritable, impulsive environment which makes it hard to see reason when dealing with others in your social group. Mars’s square with the Moon’s nodes after the 17th could also send you into, what may at the time, seem like some rather unnecessary squabbles about petty issues. Remember the karmic value of the nodes, and look if you can for more deep-rooted patterns of control and submission which are the real motivation for such disagreements. It is these more persistent behaviours which have been repeated with certain friends over many years, and need to be addressed. Enjoy your February!
