Gemini you don’t need to choose between friendships and love or your children on the 2nd as Jupiter opposes Uranus. There may be more balance required in your love life or in your relationships with your children, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t get out there and let your hair down with friends. If you are considering letting down a friend because a romantic partner or your children want all your attention, don’t do it. Spend some time with the latter and then get out there and relax with the former.
Venus retrogrades in Aries from the 4th, your 11th house of friendships. You could meet new people that are somewhat at odds with your usual circles but still find them strangely enthralling. Social gatherings tend to be more of the low-key variety rather than over the top glitzy affairs. If a friend goes for a radical image overhaul now, don’t be tempted to follow them just yet. While you could have a shock and awe moment at how much different someone looks, don’t get caught up in believing it is necessarily going to be the right thing for you to do as well. You are a sign that loves the new, the cutting edge and can’t stand being stuck in any one look or way of being for too long. Don’t get distracted by the shiny objects Gemini. If you do go for a drastic overhaul now just to keep up with the crowd it’s likely to turn into regret not too far down the track. Play a game of wait and see with your image.
Mars moves into Taurus on the 9th, your 12th house of privacy, solitude and behind the scenes deals. You could be doing a lot of your work alone now, or be negotiating things behind closed doors. You are also motivated to take care of your privacy and secrets with Mars pushing you to get on top of all 12th house matters.
A Full moon in Virgo on the 12th is in your 4th house of family. There are changes underway here, which could include an ending, some sort of contract, inheritance or a transformation that is needed around family life. One thing to watch today is a clash with Saturn, which will affect your 7th house of romantic and business partnerships, including spouses. Family matters require detail, but you could find that a partner is not bothered with the finer points of something, or that you just can’t give a matter your full attention. This causes tension with a partner and perhaps some minor tantrums.
Mercury moves into Aries on the 13th, your 11th house. It’s all about your friends and working together now. Communication is going beautifully as long as people are embracing the new, and can appreciate an assertive approach. Aries tends to push through boundaries, or carry on regardless of the obstacles standing in its way. With Mercury here, you can get friends to come along for the ride by being enthusiastic and not accepting excuses.
The Sun also moves into Aries on the 20th, and puts the spotlight on your friendships, your social life and collaborating. You may be attending a lot of parties or events and you are certainly looking for ways to make new friends, or seal bonds with old ones. Then on the 27th a New Moon in Aries starts a fresh chapter or is a brand new beginning in your 11th house. This one works favorably with the Sun and Venus and could be a 5 star day for a big event that you will enjoy. You are doing something now that will play out over the coming six months and will either require a lot of collaborative team work, or see you socializing much more than is usual for you. The one to watch today is a business or love partnership with another clash today involving Saturn and your 7th house. Things could get heated with two fire signs involved and harsh words wouldn’t be surprising. It’s almost as though you won’t care, or you’ll find away to smooth things over quickly as you have so much else going for you today. Don’t be surprised if a partner is a little jealous of you hogging the limelight.
Jupiter and Pluto clash on the 30th, and this causes issues around your lover, your children or a creative project. Something is ending or transforming today, or it’s not exactly the deal you were after. Contracts negotiated now that your romantic partner is trying to manage or which relates to your children, go off the rails or aren’t exactly as you’d hoped. You may want to push through barriers now that are too rigid, but someone advises you to take a more patient and balanced view.
Mercury moves into Taurus on the 31st, your 12th house of privacy and solitude. Communications now is either happening behind closed doors, or there is a need to protect your privacy or your secrets. It’s a good time to check passwords, update social media privacy settings or look at your security settings on your computer. Mercury will retrograde from 9th April and this will exacerbate privacy or secrecy for you. Make sure you know whom you are sending that email to before you hit send. It’s also a good time to slow down on doing deals, or to insist on confidentiality in any you are going ahead with. Try to hold these things over until mid May if you can when Mercury will be back at it’s best.
4th - 10th July
With Vesta in your 9th house, you and your family are on a journey of sorts and looking at how things will work out down the track, is better than worrying about the here and now. While you may have to cope with challenges in the everyday details of your life, if you keep sight of what you are working towards, the day to day becomes easier to deal with. The moon in Leo on the 6th and 7th may bring some behind the scenes negotiations that land you a new deal, or fresh opportunity at work.

With Jupiter in your 5th house of love from September 2016 until October 2017, your romantic life or your creativity is bringing you a lot of opportunity this year. Jupiter will retrograde in Libra from February 6th until June 9th and you find yourself thinking often about your love life or a project that you are very passionate about.
You tend to think more about how you feel over this time and want to get in much deeper than you normally do. This could be confusing for a partner who is used to you being light hearted and happy go lucky. If your relationship is with someone who is not the overly emotional, demonstrative type, they may find this side of you confusing, or even overwhelming. You act more like a water or a fire sign with Jupiter retrograde in your 5th house, and this can see you getting very emotional or very ardent when focusing your desires and emotions on someone. For singles, you might find yourself in the early stages of love, and be acting in a way that isn’t usual for you. This may lead to some confusion after June, when you get back to a state where you are detached and more interested in the intellectual side of romance, rather than the physical.
The Full Moon Lunar eclipse on February 10th could see you making a big statement about love, or being gushy and over the top about someone who has caught your eye. You may go all out and want to lay on the flowers, the scattered rose petals, the wine and the fine dining. Friends might find you rather amusing as you wax lyrical about meeting the love of your life, or just talk endlessly about how wonderful your partner is. Do you start something with a friend this year, or just meet someone very interesting thanks to an introduction from your mates?
On March 2nd an opposition between Jupiter and Uranus could bring someone new onto your radar rather quickly and unexpectedly. There may be a declaration from a friend that shocks you, or perhaps it suddenly dawns on you that person you’ve had in the friend zone has so much more to offer. At the end of March a clash between Jupiter and Pluto can find you trying to navigate some big changes in your love life. There is a move of some sort here that could make romance really difficult or just completely sideline it. With Capricorn clashing with Jupiter, do you need to move to a new city for love, or put love on hold while you find a new place to live?
A full moon in Libra on the 11th is a day to mark in your calendar. With positive aspects between this moon and Jupiter, Mercury and the Sun, perhaps you are celebrating your love in some way and your friends are there cheering you on. There is some adjustment required in your love life today, or you could change direction on a creative project when you realise there are other angles that will work better than the one you’ve been pursuing.
Early August sees some more issues crop up in your romantic life and again there is a need for adjustment or to move something around. Are you needing to go somewhere in order to be closer to your love? Or possibly give up something you are passionate about to accommodate your children or your relationship? There is travel or dealings with people who are internationally based around this time with a Full moon Lunar Eclipse in Aquarius. If you need to travel in order to improve your romantic life, it will be a lovely time for a honeymoon or trip away with your love. There is another gold standard day for you in love this year, August 27th when Jupiter and Saturn team up in your 5th and 7th houses. Lovely aspects for an engagement, wedding or making a commitment such as moving in together.
The good news in love continues for you through September, October, November and December. A new moon in Libra, October 19th is a new chapter or fresh start in your love life. The first week of December brings more good news on the love, partnership and marriage front with December 2nd another bright day for romance.
The big moments for your career and business early in the year come in February with the Sun and Mercury in Pisces. A new Moon Solar Eclipse in Pisces on the 26th is the moment to get started on something new that will carry you through the next 6 months. This is a big day for you professionally or in business and you have the Moon, Neptune, Mercury and the Sun all working to transform your career and take you in a new direction.
Mars enters Gemini mid April and this adds the energy and drive you need to keep your projects on track. However, watch for issues with a partner around April 30 as Saturn and Chiron clash. You may find yourself being schooled by a partner today, and need to eat humble pie. It may not sit well with you at all.
A new moon in Gemini May 25th is a another opportunity to start over in career or business, or to get even more projects underway. You will need to move relatively quickly because mid June, Neptune retrogrades in Pisces and that’s going to see a fog descend over career and business matters. You may find people are deceptive, don’t give you the whole story, or just find it difficult to see the grass for the trees. Nothing will be clear cut and this gets harder again when Chiron retrogrades in Pisces from July 4th.
You can’t mend rifts or find consensus with people in the workplace, or with your business clients. Where things or people are at odds, it feels impossible to bring them together, or even to know where to start. You are going to have to do the best you can, despite all the uncertainty, right through until late November when Neptune turns direct. There will still be difficulty bringing people together or getting agreement until Chiron turns direct December 5th. However, there is a bright spot during this period with a full moon in Pisces on September 6th which plays out well for career and business. The only caveat on this day is another clash between the Moon and Saturn, that again sees a partner causing issues for you professionally.
Your finances just don’t factor into your life as much they usually do this year. Which isn’t to say that money is a problem, but it’s certainly not as big a priority on the list of things you need to work on. The exception to this is the period from June to mid July while Mars is in Cancer and your 2nd house. This will be the only time this year when you are determined to make more money, or are actively going out of your way to work on financial matters.
Over this period we also see the Sun, and Mercury in your 2nd house. Plus a new moon in Cancer on June 23rd which is a very positive day for you in terms of your finances, your partnerships and your work. Mark this one out as a day to watch and see what comes up for you around money matters. While 2017 isn’t particularly focused on money, what we do see is that money will be a big deal for you on January 1st, 2018 when a full moon falls in Cancer. There is a change to your attitude about money, or a transformation in your fortunes thanks to your business or work that is finally starting to pay off for you as 2018 gets underway.
