|The focus for this month for Gemini is on investments, possible inheritances, things to do with beginnings and endings, joint ventures, and other people’s money. The two oppositions that you will feel this month are centred between your friends and/or group associations versus your romantic life, projects or children. The other opposition will seesaw between things to do with foreign places versus your neighbourhood, which could mean moving or travel, things to do with your changing philosophy and outlook on life and your logical mind, or how you interact with the outer (social interaction) and the way you communicate. You will be dealing with people from afar as well as with your siblings, and with people in your community or the dealings you will be having with people from afar could be your siblings/cousins and there will be a lot of communication back and forth.Mercury retrogrades from January 21 to February 11, 2015 in Aquarius. This is the first of the retrogrades this year. It is the time of year when you will have to be careful of things going wonky in your communications, or your travels. Please do all the things that are precautionary such as, backing up your computers, checking your information, checking everything twice before sending. As well, try not to buy any new mechanical things such as computers, cars or anything that has mechanical or moving parts, and/or try not to sign any contracts or agreements unless they are formed with someone or a company you have dealt with previous to the Mercury Retrograde.
In your chart, if you’re travelling expect some delays, or if dealing with any legal matters, such as signing contracts, there may be some confusion. Please call your airport to double-check your flights and have everything checked twice by a lawyer. Better to err on the side of caution.
|The year begins with focus on achievement and success given that Mars means action and Jupiter brings luck. Until the 13th, there will be lots of action with things that have to do with anything associated with foreign subjects, such as people who come from a distance, lots of short trips, or people coming from afar to visit. Enjoy this energy as it feels natural to you. It will be a better experience if you just live it and enjoy, than trying to plan around it. There may be a tug of war going on inside of you to broaden your horizons, as Gemini tends to like staying ‘close to home’. You have seriously been considering where ‘close to home’ is the last few years.|
|With the Sun in your house of all things to do with the larger scope of life, death, commitments, investments, etc. you’ll feel like you’re on the brink of a new movement in your life. Pluto is in this house for a while, so while these transformations happening in your life are going to take a while to be fully implemented, you will hear the whisperings or hints of these during the next couple of days, though it might not be outwardly obvious. Joint ventures and some new subjects you are learning about will be connected to partners, whether business or personal. If you are disciplined and organized regarding this, it will be a fruitful experience or result. The Full Moon on the 4th entering this very same house will most likely culminate or bring to fruition anything connected to joint ventures and commitments. You will either begin a new phase with someone close or a partner such as deepening your commitment or you will end things.|
|The next two days, on the 5th and 6th, romance and commitment may feel a little thwarted by circumstance, this will only last two days, so don’t fret. The Moon is in Cancer, it’s natural placement, so you may be in a reminiscent mood or you may be going over what your personal values are, as they may be going through some changes in that area. You may feel a little reluctance to let go as Cancer likes to hang on and hold on to memories, or you may not want to let go of certain possessions as they still have meaning for you. Mercury is joining Venus in the house of higher learning and travel, or anything foreign, and through discipline your ideas will come across best if your ideas, thoughts, and communication are organized and detailed.|
|The 7th marks the beginning of one of the long running aspects this month. It’s possible that some of your ideas regarding your transformation goes agains the grain and may be considered revolutionary at best. Your life is in a period of major overhauling. If you’re younger, you may be reorganizing your life to accommodate major new projects or even planning for children, commitment to personal relationships, etc. If you’re older, you may be planning retirement, which in itself is a major change and transformation of lifestyle as well. These issues will be on your mind for most of this month.|
|From the 9th to the 14th, you may feel a little unsatisfied with your immediate environment preferring to think of places far away or forced to deal with situations or issues far away. Communication with people from foreign lands or who live in foreign lands will be on the same page as you so things should be moving along quite nicely if organized and detailed. A good return on investments will coincide with good planning. Another angle of looking at this is if you are organized in your pursuits of learning, you will get a good return on this. Say, you’re learning how to teach English to foreigners, you will find a lot of people wanting to learn from you. Or, if you write something related to travel or foreign investment, your readers will flock to read your blog or article. You will find the right words to convey your feelings to your romantic partner, and you will find that if your actions are organized and disciplined, you will profit from all situations and circumstances these few days.|
|On the 15th, it’s more of what has been going on for the last few days, and the important point or tip to remember is that if you’re organized on all fronts, things will fall into place and all those outer and extraneous niggly wigglies and disruptions will only be a cause to test you to see whether you have your ducks in a row. You’ll be feeling like you’re on the right path and every well-planned action will yield a positive result!|
|On the 16th, the Moon will be Sagittarius, giving you an infusion of the need for freedom, which includes freedom of thought, insight, and outlook on life. And, with the Sun still in your house of sex, investments, and life/death, your partner will most likely make you realize that you have that, even with the commitments you have. You will be open to all kinds of ideas relating to joint ventures and commitment. You may feel this in a very physical kind of way as well, especially if you’re active sexually. Organization will still be the key to your success!|
|Again from the 19th to the 20th, you will be dealing with your siblings and/or people from afar. Issues and challenges will seem a little nebulous and unclear, or conversely, you may get a flash of insight that help to clarify a situation or issue. With the Moon in Capricorn, you are able to step back and view the situation at hand objectively. You may be a bit impatient with other people’s resistance and vagueness regarding these issues, but if you organize your thoughts and explain it to them impartially, you may even be able to gain some ground.|
|From the 23rd to 24th, you’ll feel as though your life is quite organized even as you’re daydreaming a lot. Flashes of insight are quite possible and you’ll be able to empathize with your fellow humans with the Moon in Pisces sitting right next to Neptune, Pisces ruler, in your house of relationships. Be careful not to lose yourself in your empathy and/or your wish to serve those closest to you. You’ll be able to go with the flow, even if your fellow humans are dreamy, vague, and confused. You will be able to lead them thoughtfully and creatively. Some of your closest may be feeling a little insecure with all the opposition happening in the bigger picture, and you may feel a little bit of this too, but your organization skills will come in handy to keep things from drowning.|
|From the 25th to the 29th, we will be nearing the end of this disruptive influence on our life path. In your case, the disruptions that have caused a bit of havoc in your romance department, children or creative projects will finally come to an end on the last day of the month. You will be glad to see the end of the month when it comes to those issues and challenges. You will manage to find the right words or message to find a solution to these nagging issues, while your revolutionary thoughts and ideals may still not be fully accepted. You will be able to negotiate a good deal.|
|The Moon in Gemini works in your favour as it is mental and logical and while it’s confronting your groups and friends, this objectivity will yield positive results with them. They will be able to see your side of the story. Your finances, learning, and expanding of your horizons will benefit from being organized and disciplined. Energy and activity will surround and help move forward the very things that you want to change. Your friends and conversely your romantic partners may still voice their opinions but in general the outcome will be positive. You are still feeling the push and pull between being ‘out there’ and social, and wanting to work on creative projects, or cocooning with your romantic other half, or spending time with children.Your life is changing or going through a massive shift and organization is the key! Remember to live and experience these changes rather than only worrying and focussing on planning them all out.|
|Happy New Year!|
