Gemini, The Twins
May 20 to June 20

Modality: Mutable
Element: Air
Ruler: Mercury

Keywords: Versatile, charming, engaging, witty, restless, duplicitous

As a Gemini, you are known for your skills at communication: witty and engaging, you are able to charm anyone, though you sometimes forget to listen when communicating with others. You are also known for your dual personality (or perhaps more), which can lead to some people describing you as “two-faced.” You are intelligent and curious, never ceasing your collection of information.

You immensely enjoy meeting new people, though few fall of those friends fall into the realm of being more than an acquaintance. In relationships, you cherish your freedom and independence, and may find that casual romances are easier for you than long-term relationships. You delight in being partnered, but you also want your freedom at the same time. The same dichotomy is true for your home (either pristine or extremely messy) and your family relationships (either close-knit or quite distant).

When it comes to work, your happiness is linked to your ability to explore new ideas and maintain autonomy. Your financial success depends largely on your attitudes towards spending and saving; think long-term when making financial decisions, and learn to plan for the future.

For the year ahead:

Affirmation: My life is an opportunity!

  • Jupiter in your sign (beginning June 11) makes the next year one of both luck and optimism. In your first house of self, you may find lucky Jupiter giving you what you need (at times at the last minute), but don’t always depend on it. This is a time to move in new directions, but make sure to stay organized, or it will become easy to fall behind with your busy schedule.
  • Saturn spends the first nine months of 2012 in Libra (your fifth house). Expect romantic dealings and relationships to take on a more serious nature this year; parenting could be tough at times. Because the fifth house also represents your recreation and creativity, this could be a good time to take up a new hobby or start a new exercise program. When Saturn moves into Scorpio in October, your sixth house of work, you can anticipate extra responsibilities. Be sure not to cut corners, however, as the effort you now put forth could bring later benefits.
  • Neptune shifted into Pisces back in February, where it will remain until 2025. This transit is both positive and challenging, as it can bring both chance meetings and opportunities, but it can also bring false promises from others. Use Neptune’s inspiration to your advantage, adding your own motivation to your tenth house of work.
  • Pluto continues its fifteen-year transit of Capricorn (your eighth house), which highlights your finances. Overall, you will be more aware of your finances and money matters involving others (including spouses, family members, lenders, and borrowers). Establish your path to financial security.
