GEMINI / Gemini Rising




By Christine Rakela

For 2020, Jupiter in Capricorn will help alleviate the pressure you have been feeling with finances, partnerships, and areas of personal growth. You will find your confidence improves and you are able to capitalize upon new ventures with others. You may also experience a personal rejuvenation that lifts your spirits. Saturn and Pluto in Capricorn as well will drive you to work hard on accomplishing set goals that will affect your long-term future. In January, Saturn and Pluto will form an anticipated conjunction and adversely aspect Mars, especially the second week. You may experience delays or obstacles that are frustrating and need to move slowly and carefully in reaching your goals. More work may be required so be patient in getting things done. The Full Moon on the 10th only adds to an already intense situation. As we move away from the Saturn/Pluto influence more progress will be happening with partnerships and financial ventures. With Uranus going direct you will be experiencing self -discoveries that are enlightening. A New Moon on the 24th sparks your intuition and brings new ideas to the table. Be aware of Mars squaring Neptune at the end of the month which will cause some disappointment with career pursuits.
In February supportive influences from Mars in positive aspect to the Sun and Mercury mid-month encourages your career aims. Yet, a Full Moon on the 8th into the 9th could be the cause of a misunderstanding or missed communication. Mercury goes retrograde from the February 17th until March 10th causing you to reassess where you stand with your career and social circle. Avoid making important decisions or starting anything new under this influence. Watch out for misunderstandings and mistakes being made.
In March you may feel like being low key, however, Jupiter and Pluto are forming a great conjunction that will bring opportunities with partnerships and personal ventures that may also inspire lucrative gain, especially after Mercury goes direct on March 10th. Also take heed of a challenging Full Moon on the 9th. Do capitalize upon Venus in excellent trine to Jupiter and Pluto at the end of the month. Investments and financial ventures look very promising.
The last couple of days on March into April, Mars and Saturn move into Aquarius together and will be the cause of strained communications and travel delays. Altercations with others could also occur. Do not over-extend yourself during this time. On a brighter note, Mercury making some positive aspects, Mars in favorable trine aspect to Venus, and a New Moon toward the second half of April encourage social life, friendships, and business dealings. As Uranus conjoins the Sun at the end of the month you gain new insights behind-the-scenes.
The first week in May due to Venus squaring Neptune, you may experience plans going awry and therefore disappointment. Don’t plan anything of importance. An erratic Full Moon on May 7th is sure to cause scheduling changes at work and health concerns. Best to stay calm amidst any turmoil. As Venus goes retrograde on May 13th until the June 25th you will be reevaluating where you stand with yourself and others. As you gain a clearer picture of what you want for yourself you will be able to achieve that goal. Mid-month the Sun will be favorable trine aspect to Pluto and Jupiter enabling the plans you are drawing up behind-the-scenes to be successful especially with financial ventures, partnerships, and investments.
In June, the Full Moon on the 5th will have you at odds with a personal relationship. A sense of humor may help. Most of June the Sun and Venus in Gemini will put you in the spotlight, however, Venus retrograde until the 25th has you continuing to reassess your life. Then Mercury retrograde occurs on June 18th to July 12th where you will be reevaluating your monetary situation and finding ways to make your assets more secure. Jupiter forming another conjunction with Pluto enhances your opportunities with partnerships alliances, financial quests, and areas of personal growth.
In July the Full Moon on the 5th and Mercury retrograde until July 12th could still cause some forgetfulness and communication problems. However, Venus in supportive sextile to Mars most of the month emphasizes smooth communication with those around you and pleasant times with friends. The second half of July Jupiter in sextile to Neptune favors opportunities with career goals where a partner or coworker could help improve your position.
In August the Full Moon on the 3rd may be the cause of a brief upset. Otherwise the first half of the month indicates favorable conditions with educational goals, outings with friends, and travel as the Sun and Mercury are in positive aspect to Mars. As you are feeling energized you will be able to get a lot done. However, starting on the 12th until the end of August, Mars in square aspect to Pluto and Saturn will be the cause of problems with a friend, partnership, or personal goal that you are trying to accomplish. Take your time in working things out.
The first half of September, first Mercury and then the Sun trining Pluto and Saturn have you focused on securing your assets and looking for solid investment. The second half of the month Mars in adverse aspect to Saturn blocks any progress with partnerships, investing, and personal finances. A difficult situation could occur with a friend.
In October the Full Moon on the 1st will create issues on the job and possibly with your health. Not to fret for Venus trining Uranus and then Jupiter will bring favorable conditions into the home and with all financial assets. A good time to make an investment. October 14th until November 3rd Mercury is retrograde. Avoid making important decisions or starting anything new under this influence. Watch out for misunderstandings and mistakes. October 31st foresees another Full Moon this month, best to keep a low profile.
In November, the Sun in trine aspect to Neptune and sextile aspect to Jupiter the first half of the month brings favorable reward with your career aims and financial developments. Mercury in positive aspect to Jupiter and Pluto at months end has you capitalizing upon work opportunities that improve your career standing.
For December Mercury and the Sun in Sagittarius bring more optimism into your life with personal relationships the first three weeks. Then Venus in Sagittarius continues this positive trend. Venus favorably aspecting Neptune and Jupiter the first half of the month brings promising situations at work and with partnerships and financial ventures. Jupiter conjoins Saturn first in Capricorn securing all monetary assets and partnerships, then they move into Aquarius encouraging travel and a possible move in the future. With so much to look forward to do enjoy the holiday season!
