Gemini - February 2020
Hey, Gemini! Negotiations for your next big promotion may seem to be going nowhere in February, as Mercury turns retrograde on the 17th in your career sector! He arrives here on the 4th, and the days of the 5th to 13th should be fairly accommodating, as ideas for how to progress and show the world what you know seem to be taking you into endless exciting conversations about your future. After this date you may notice these plans coming to a standstill, and it will be the first week in March before you are back on track. Geminis with a birthday during the first week in June might find the days of the 12th to 21st especially difficult in terms of self-expression as Mercury stops on your natal Sun. Mercury retrograde periods tend to be dreaded as times of chaos and administrative upset, but in actual fact they often provide valuable opportunities to learn about how we interact with others and about the efficiency of our working practices. You may therefore find yourself involved in rewriting policies and procedures now in your work place.
The full Moon of the 9th in your communication sector creates an open and very honest atmosphere around discussions with family and friends. You could discover personal information now about someone you thought you knew, which will turn all your assumptions on their head. The lunar cycle begins anew on the 23rd, and the new Moon here sends opportunities to increase your cash flow, by focusing your energy on those ingenious ideas which so far you have been keeping under wraps. People will be impressed by your originality and intelligence, so don’t be shy about your skills! Some days to avoid emotional discussions might be the 10th, 11th, 16th to 18th and 23rd to 25th as the Moon crosses your natal Sun; these periods will see sensitivity enhanced and this may prevent you from making rational choices in your interactions with others. Much more favourable days for reaching agreements are the 3rd to 5th, 12th to 13th and 20th to 22nd.
Uranus is now moving forward again in your house of psychic and spiritual matters, hence that restless impulsiveness around attempts to tap into your intuition will begin to calm, and you will feel your inner voice coming through more coherently. Dreams will continue to be vivid and predictive, but less erratic, and you should find sleeping improves. Uranus and Mars form a co-operative, albeit rather unpredictable trine from the 17th to 29th, which is fabulous for working on your psychic skills and enhancing spiritual awareness. The Sun and Uranus in sextile after the 21st is also an excellent combination of energies for making money from technological, scientific or investigative research, going it alone with a business idea, or for considering self-employment.
Finances will benefit from Mars’s masterful presence after the 17th, as he marches into your house of loans, credit and debts. This is a positive time to put a plan in motion to pay off outstanding credit or tackle mounting debts, Mars will send you the help and energy you need to set you on the right track. You may find yourself fighting for your rights in battles over inheritances, tax rebates and benefits now, either on behalf of yourself or your partner. When Mars conjuncts the disruptive south node between the 20th and 27th, these problems could escalate, as you strive to have your say in situations where meaningless red tape overrides any sense of logic and reason. Keep your eye on the goal and you can’t go too far wrong. Happy February!
