Gemini - December 2018
Hi there Gemini! Career aims come sharply into focus for you in December, as Mars asserts his authority in your house of ambitions and aspirations! This is a time when competition for those sought after positions will be intense and challenging, and you will need to pull out all the stops to stand out from the crowd. You will find those who dither or lack motivation rather irritating, you need to be working with others who share your goals and determination. Authority figures will place additional demands on you, but you are more than capable of anything they ask. Mars and Pluto form a slightly obsessive sextile between the 8th and 28th which could take you into a behind-the-scenes project or investigation in your work place. You could become a little pre-occupied with finding out exactly what’s going on in a situation where there seem to be a lot of unopened doors.
The Sun spends the first three weeks of the month in your relationship sector, and verbalising your needs and desires to your other half will be at the top of your priority list. Having someone to share your ideas with may suddenly seem super important, and you will find that the best way of expressing your personality is through the work you complete in partnership with others. With the Sun connecting positively to unpredictable Uranus from the 15th to 22nd, love could arise unexpectedly with a friend or through a social club or group which you attend. You may also find romance with a mentor or tutor of some kind, or someone who works overseas, as Mercury conjuncts Jupiter from the 16th to 27th. The new Moon of the 7th is a fantastic time to let the object of your affections know how you feel about them, although with the Moon squaring up to Mars at this time, you do need to take care not to be too abrupt in the expression of your affection!
The Moon’s nodes made an important sign change in November which has altered your karmic goals for the next eighteen months. Their focus now is money and your relationship to it, and how you perceive what belongs to you and what belongs to others. The north node is pushing you now to exert your independence in financial matters and free yourself, as far as you are able, of debts and economic commitments to other people, in order that you can move towards a position where you no longer rely on them for support in this part of your life. This month’s full Moon also shines in this area of your chart, and will clear the clouds looming over your cash flow, allowing you to finally see what action is required to enable you to be financially secure in your own right.
Venus adds some much-needed colour to your house of everyday work and health after the 3rd of December, and the more mundane those tasks on your to do list, the more desperate will be your urge to escape the monotony of normal life and change things up a little. Revamping your work environment and pepping up colleagues with your positive, sociable energy will be your aims for the month, and you may find yourself mediating between warring work mates who look to you for a shot of your natural warmth and wisdom. As we head towards that indulgent festive season, you do need to be more careful than usual with regard to overeating; your digestive system will be sensitive and could cause you some problems before new year. Have a wonderful December!
