As Lucky Jupiter spends the first half of the year in Gemini, a new you is unfolding. Take advantage of this fortunate, expansive influence. Especially through June 25th, be open to the possibilities that life presents. Being optimistic and open to growth will reward you with incredible opportunities. With innovative Uranus in its multi-year residence in your Sector of Alliances, contributing to your community still plays a starring role in your life. Even if being involved in a group project hasn't previously been your thing, doing so now will prove unexpectedly valuable and will help you grow in ways you never thought possible.
The Solar Eclipse on May 9th makes you aware that there's an important chapter in your life that needs to close before you can truly move on to a new one. Your planetary ruler, Messenger Mercury, turns retrograde about three times each year. This year, these periods are February 23rd through March 17th; June 26th through July 20th; and October 21st through November 10th. You could feel somewhat out of sorts during these windows of time, with communication seeming to be more challenging than usual. Still, there are upsides to these periods. They can help you tune in to your intuition and also reassess your approach to self-expression. With serious Saturn in your Sector of Routine all year, it's important to focus on enhancing your wellbeing. If you take your health seriously by investing time and resources in it, rewards will follow.
As Jupiter is in your sign the first half of the year, you're expanding your definition of who you are. In turn, your relationships need to grow to accommodate the new you that you're becoming. There's no denying that you're still in a multi-year period of discovering what intimacy means to you. Powerful Pluto continues to move through your Sector of Deep Connections for more than a decade. While this is a long-term process, there are some important dates this year when you can have breakthroughs in deepening your relationships. These include April 20th and 21st; June 7th and 8th; September 14th and 15th; and December 29th through 31st. These are the dates when your planetary guide, Messenger Mercury, connects to the powerful alignment between innovative Uranus and transformative Pluto.
Also heating up your romantic life this year are two Lunar Eclipses. The one on May 24th illuminates the importance of relationships in your life. It may also bring to light some underlying tension between you and a special someone. A platonic relationship may morph into a romantic one, or vice versa, on the Eclipse on October 18th. Alternately, it can be a time when being involved in a community project kindles the flames of love with someone. Focus on adding spice to your love life when Mercury journeys through your Sector of Romance from September 9th to 29th. It's a wonderful time to plan for a romantic getaway or explore new ways to have fun.
There's a lot going on in your career this year, Gemini. With serious Saturn in your House of Work, you could be called upon to take on extra tasks. It's important to not cut corners when it comes to managing projects. If you've been diligent attending to work responsibilities, you'll reap great rewards October 8th, October 30th, and November 25th. Also in November, a Solar Eclipse ushers in a new direction in your career. While this takes place on the 3rd, the manifestations may not be immediately known but rather will evolve over the next six-plus months. Also, with imaginative Neptune in your House of Public Recognition, you're still on the quest to find work that is more soul satisfying. It's important to rely upon your intuition to glean clues to forge your path, which may seem hazy at points. Don't worry if this process takes time; this is a long-term transition as Neptune will be touching this arena of your life for the next decade-plus.
Your finances should get a boost after July 20th. By this time expansive Jupiter will have moved into Cancer and your House of Resources. Also at this point, your planetary guide, messenger Mercury, will be in direct motion in this area of your chart. Through the end of the year, you can attract additional income. Yet be careful about your spending habits. Jupiter can inspire a sense of over-optimism that can cause you to spend money you don't necessarily have.
