Major, long-term planets are changing signs this year and this brings changes of direction in your own life. Nothing is settled right now. Everything is subject to change.
Jupiter spends most of the year in your 6th house of health and work. This is good news on the health front: if there have been problems in this area you should hear good news about them. It also shows very nice job opportunities coming your way. This can be with your present company or with another one.
These job opportunities are happy. More on this later.
Jupiter, your love planet, will move into your 7th house of love on November 8. This shows happiness in love and a stellar kind of love life. Next year will also be good. There’s more on this later.
Saturn moved into your 8th house of regeneration late last year, and most of you haven’t felt the influence of this transit yet, but this year you will. It signals a need to rein in the sex drive and sexual activity – quality is to be preferred to quantity. The spouse, partner or current love is forced to reorganize the financial life. He or she is taking on new financial burdens.
Pluto has been in your 8th house for many years and will be there for many more to come. Since Pluto is your health planet, it indicates a tendency towards surgery. (This could have already happened.) But detox regimes should also be explored. More details later.
Uranus, the planet of change and experimentation, is making a foray into your 12th house of spirituality from May 16 to November 6, and next year he will move in for the long haul. Thus many of you will be changing your spiritual paths in the coming years, embracing a more scientific kind of approach. Many of you will change teachers and teachings – most likely multiple times – over the next seven years. Again, there are more details later.
Neptune, your career planet (and the most spiritual and idealistic of all the planets), has been in your 10th career house for some years now, and he will remain there for many more (he is a slow-moving planet). Thus idealism is important in the career. This aspect favours a spiritual type of career. More on this later.
Your most important interests in the year ahead will be health and work (until November 8); love and romance (from November 8 onwards); sex, occult studies and personal transformation; career; friends, groups and group activities (from January 1 to May 16 and from November 6 to December 31); and spirituality (from May 16 to November 6).
Your paths of greatest fulfilment this year are communication and intellectual interests (until November 17); finance (from November 17 onwards); health and work (until November 8); and love and romance (from November 8 onwards).
Gemini Horoscope for 2018: Health
(Please note that this is an astrological perspective on health and not a medical one. In days of yore there was no difference, both these perspectives were identical. But now there could be quite a difference. For a medical perspective, please consult your doctor or health practitioner.)
Health is good this year, as we mentioned. For most of the year until November, there is only one long-term planet in stressful alignment with you – Neptune. After November 8, however, Jupiter will move into Sagittarius and a stressful alignment. Most of the long-term planets are either in harmonious alignment or leaving you alone. So overall energy is good. Sure, there will be periods where your health and energy are less good than usual (and we will cover this in the monthly reports). But these are temporary periods caused by the short-term planets. They are not trends for the year. When the short-term planets move away, health and energy return to normal.
The other good health signal is Jupiter in your 6th house, as we mentioned.
This shows ‘good fortune’ in matters of health. With this kind of transit cures are often found for things believed to be incurable. Medicines and therapies tend to be effective. The understanding of health and disease gets expanded.
Good though your health is, you can make it even better, as our regular readers know. Give attention to the following – the vulnerable areas of your Horoscope. (The reflex points are shown in the chart below.) Most of the time, problems can actually be prevented. But even in cases where they can’t be totally prevented, they can be softened to a great extent. They need not be devastating.
The lungs, arms, shoulders and respiratory system. These are always important for a Gemini. Regular arm and shoulder massage is always advisable as tension tends to collect in the shoulders and needs to be released.
The liver and thighs. These became important in October of last year, when Jupiter moved into your 6th house, and remain so until November 8 when he moves on. The thighs should be regularly massaged. Thigh massage will not only strengthen the liver but the lower back as well – very important these days. If you feel under the weather a herbal liver cleanse might be just the ticket.
The colon, bladder and sexual organs. Safe sex and sexual moderation are always important. If you have been neglectful of this, Saturn in your 8th house will probably enforce the issue. If you feel under the weather, a herbal colon cleanse might be a good idea. Many natural healers affirm that all disease begins in the colon, so it is important to keep it clean.
The spine, knees, teeth, skin and overall skeletal alignment. These have been important areas to you since December 2008, ever since Pluto moved into Capricorn, and they will remain so for many more years.
Regular back (and knee) massage is recommended, as are regular visits to a chiropractor or osteopath: the vertebrae need to be kept in right alignment. Therapies such as The Alexander Technique, Rolfing or Feldenkrais are good. Yoga and Pilates are excellent for the spine. Give the knees more support when exercising. If you’re out in the hot sun use a good sun-screen. Regular dental check-ups and cleaning are important too.
There is another issue to be considered in health. Jupiter, your love planet, is in your health house. So, good health for you (especially this year) means good social health – a healthy marriage or love life. If there are problems here it could impact on your physical health. So, if problems happen (God forbid), restore the harmony in the love and social life as quickly as possible and the health problem will weaken and disappear.
Gemini Horoscope for 2018: Home and Family
Your 4th house of home and family is not strong this year – it is not a house of power. Only short-term planets will move through there – and briefly. The planetary powers are not pushing you one way or another in this department.
They give great freedom to shape this area as you will – but you lack the interest. Other things are more important these days. The tendency would be to the status quo. You seem basically content with things as they are.
Mercury, the ruler of your Horoscope, is also your family planet. This shows that family is important to you and perhaps part of your identity. In many cases, it takes time to forge your own identity as a separate individual within the family group.
As our regular readers know, Mercury, is a fast-moving and often erratic planet. (Doesn’t this describe Gemini well?) Sometimes he is zipping along with great confidence. Sometimes he moves slowly and cautiously. And, sometimes, he goes backwards. He is the embodiment of ‘flexibility’ – a Gemini trait. In a given year he will move through every sign and house in your Horoscope. Thus there are many short-term home and family trends depending on where Mercury is and the kind of aspects he receives. These are best dealt with in the monthly reports.
This not an especially great year for doing major renovations to the home.
However, if you’re redecorating (repainting or re-arranging things), July 10 to August 7 and August 23 to September 22 are good times. These times are also good for buying furniture or objects of beauty for the home.
Siblings and sibling figures in your life are likely to move, renovate or buy an additional home this year. They have good fortune in the purchase or sale of a home. Their marriages are being tested. Children and children figures are prospering this year, but the home life seems stable. Parents or parent figures are likely to move or renovate their house after November 8 and into next year. Grandchildren (if you have them) are likely to move – and perhaps multiple times this year and in the coming years. They seem very unsettled.
The parent figures in your life – both sets – are making important changes to their health regimes. Perhaps there is some health scare that forces this.
Their job situation seems unstable and, if they employ others, there is employee turnover.
Gemini Horoscope for 2018: Finance and Career
Your money house is not particularly active this year either. Again, only shortterm planets will move through there, rather quickly. Finance is not a major concern. You seem more interested in the finances of others than in your own.
This is generally a good thing. You seem satisfied with things as they are and have no need to make drastic changes. In spite of this I feel you will end the year richer than when you began. On November 17 the Moon’s North Node will move into your money house and stay there for the rest of the year (and next year too). The North Node tends to show ‘excess’ – and in finance this is a good thing. Better too much than too little.
Should financial problems occur, it is most probably due to lack of attention.
You have to force yourself to pay attention here.
Having said this, we do see some important financial shifts, changes and course corrections this year, more than usual. There will be two Lunar Eclipses (the usual number) and these always impact on finance. But in addition to this there is a Solar Eclipse on July 13 that occurs in your money house. This will create dramatic financial change. You probably won’t be initiating these changes, but reacting to the events caused by the eclipse. We will deal with these more fully in the monthly reports.
The Moon, the fastest and most changeable of all the planets (even more so than Mercury) is your financial planet. Where Mercury will move through all the signs and houses of your Horoscope in one year, the Moon does so every month. Moreover, she is quite changeable, sometimes waxing, sometimes waning, sometime close to the earth and sometimes far away. Thus there are all kinds of short-term financial trends, depending on where the Moon is and the aspects she receives. These are best dealt with in the monthly reports.
You are more ambitious than usual these days. The long-term planets are mostly in the upper half of your chart this year, and by November 8, all the long-term planets will be there. The bottom half of your chart (the sector of home and family) will never match the power of the upper half. Your career 10th house is strong all year, whereas your family 4th house will only be strong for a couple of months. Jupiter is making beautiful aspects to your career planet Neptune almost all year. Thus you’re successful – elevated in your status and profession. You have good career support from friends and social connections. Those of you who are attached are getting good support from the spouse, partner or current love interest. You’re socializing with people who can help you careerwise. It is good for your career to attend or host the right kind of parties or gatherings this year.
Your professional skills are very important, but this year your social skills, your ability to get on with others – your likeability – seems very important. Of two people with equivalent professional skills, it is the more likeable one who will get the promotion.
It will also be good – and this has been the trend for many years – to be involved in charitable or altruistic causes. You’re receiving perhaps more recognition for your spiritual activities than for your professional work now.
Jupiter in your 6th house of work shows that your good work ethic is noted by the people in authority in your life. It is an important factor in your success.
‘Pray devoutly,’ say the sages, ‘but hammer stoutly.’
Gemini Horoscope for 2018: Love and Social Life
The year ahead, as we mentioned above, is a banner love and social year. And next year will be even better. You’re in a very happy and active social cycle right now.
With Jupiter, your love planet, spending most of the year in your 6th house the workplace is not just your place of work but your social centre as well.
Many of you are being offered happy job opportunities this year, and the social conditions of the job are playing a big role in your choices. The social atmosphere and opportunities could trump salary this year. For singles, this aspect signals romantic opportunities with co-workers or at company functions or events. It would also show an attraction to health professionals and for people involved in your health.
A good part of your socializing seems career- and job-related. And Jupiter in your 6th house making nice aspects to your career planet almost all year would also signal an attraction to people of power and prestige – people above you in the professional hierarchy. You find people who can help you careerwise alluring, and seem to get on with them.
Sometimes this aspect shows that parents, bosses and authority figures support your social goals and will often play Cupid. They seem to be playing an important – and positive – role in your love and social life.
The real romantic fun begins on November 8, however, as your love planet moves into your 7th house of love. This often signals marriage or relationships that are ‘like marriage’. It signals ‘committed’ kinds of relationships. Often with this aspect you’ll find that you’re attending more weddings too. It’s in the air. In general you will be attending more parties and gatherings. You will make new and significant friendships too.
You always have an attraction to foreigners, religious and highly educated kinds of people. As Jupiter moves into his own sign of Sagittarius in November, this becomes even stronger. The workplace will no longer be your social centre; instead now it will be the place of worship, the university or foreign countries.
For those of you in or working on the second marriage, the social life will also expand. If you’re married or in an existing relationship, it will get tested in the year ahead – there are two eclipses in the house of the second marriage.
Romantic opportunities will be found in spiritual settings – in prayer meetings, spiritual or meditation workshops, charity events. You seem to crave a more spiritual kind of relationship.
Those in or working on the third marriage have had much instability in love for the past seven years. Things are calming down this year. Marriage is not yet advisable, however; next year will be better than 2018.
Gemini Horoscope for 2018: Self-Improvement
Neptune, as we have mentioned, has been in your 10th house of career for many years now. So, many of the trends that we have written of in past years are still very much in effect. Long-term, slow-moving planets indicate longterm projects and developments. The transit of a long-term planet is not really an ‘event’ but a ‘process’.
So you have been – and still are – in the process of spiritualizing your career. You’re imbued with great idealism. Merely being successful in the worldly sense is not enough for you. Your work, your career has to be meaningful – something that uplifts all of humanity. It is an aspect that favours careers in charities, foundations and non-profit organizations. But there are other options too. Often we see people with this kind of aspect involved in worldly careers – mundane kinds of careers – but they are heavily involved in charitable activities. They are more known for these activities than for their worldly career.
There’s another way to read this too – and it will fit in many cases. Your spiritual practice, your spiritual growth, becomes the career – the life work, the mission. This seems impractical and improbable as a career. Yet, it can be very powerful. One spiritual breakthrough – perhaps as you are sitting in meditation by yourself – has the power to not only change your life, but your family, community, country and even the world – eventually. Many of the great world movements that we see right now began in this way.
Spirituality is becoming important in another way too. Uranus will move into your spiritual 12th house on May 16 and stay there until November 6. Next year he will move into your 12th house for the long haul – for the next seven years. This shows dramatic changes in your spiritual practice, teachings and teachers. Many of the old rulebooks – the ‘thou shalt nots’ – get thrown out, and you begin to learn through trial, error and experiment. The transit favours a more scientific, rational approach to spirituality, as opposed to the traditional, mystical ones. Thus it would favour paths such as Jnana yoga, hermetic science and kabbalah – all rational approaches. There is a deep science to spirituality (and some of this is being discovered by secular scientists and doctors). And this is a time to explore this.
Uranus rules astrology. So the esoteric – philosophical – side of astrology would be another viable path.

You begin your year with most of the planets in your Western, social sector.
Even the ruler of your Horoscope, Mercury, is in the West. This shows a need to ‘go with the flow’, to let others have their way (so long as it isn’t destructive), to attain your ends through consensus and compromise rather than direct action. Right now you’re having to live with the conditions that you created in the past. Try to make do as best you can. In a few months the planetary power will shift and it will be easier to make any necessary changes.
Your love and social peak occurred last month, but the month ahead is still very social. Mercury will be in your 7th house of love until the 11th, which shows that you’re proactive in love. You are going after what you want and not waiting around for the phone to ring. It also indicates more personal popularity. You’re there for your friends and for the current love. Their interests come before your own. You’re devoted to them. This makes for popularity.
Health is better than last month and you can enhance it further in the ways mentioned in the yearly report. This is a good month to undertake detox or weight-loss regimes. A strong 8th house (until the 20th) is good for projects involving reinvention or personal transformation. There are things in our lives that might be in need of ‘resurrection’ – perhaps it is a relationship, a creative project, or a business venture. This is a good month to make it happen.
A Lunar Eclipse on the 31st seems to affect you strongly. It occurs in your 3rd house of communication, bringing dramas in the lives of siblings, sibling figures or neighbours. Students make important changes in their education plans; perhaps there are shakeups in their school. Every Lunar Eclipse impacts on your finances as the Moon is your financial planet. So course corrections are needed in the financial life. The events of the eclipse will show you what’s necessary. Cars and communication equipment get tested and often repairs or replacements are necessary.
New Moons and Full Moons are always good financial days for you, Gemini. The Full Moon of the 1st and 2nd seems especially good as the Moon is at her closest distance to the Earth. In general, the waxing Moon is better financially than the waning moon – thus the 1st and the 2nd and the 17th to the 31st bring more enthusiasm and financial power.

Best Days for Career: 6, 7, 16, 17, 25, 26
A Solar Eclipse on the 15th creates excitement and change, but in spite of it, the month ahead looks prosperous and successful.
This eclipse happens in your 9th house of education, religion and thought, and impacts on legal matters. Pending issues take a dramatic turn, one way or another. Foreign lands call to you this month and you have the travel bug. But avoid foreign travel during the eclipse period. College-level students are forced to make changes to their educational plans. Sometimes they change schools or courses; sometimes the school they wanted rejects them but another one (perhaps even a better one) accepts them. The eclipse impacts on Mercury, the ruler of your Horoscope, and on Jupiter, your love planet. Thus there are personal and love dramas happening. Love is problematic anyway this month, as Mars spends the month in your 7th house, and the eclipse doesn’t help matters. Perhaps you have got involved in power struggles with the beloved, and the eclipse brings this to a head. A good relationship will survive – but things are tense.
The eclipse’s impact on Mercury is actually a healthy thing, in that you’re forced to redefine yourself, to get clear in your own mind who you are and the kind of image you want to present. You will see changes here over the next six months or so. Every Solar Eclipse affects siblings, sibling figures and neighbours. There are dramas in their lives. Every Solar Eclipse also tests cars and communication equipment. You had this last month and now you have it again. The changes that weren’t made last month happen now.
On the 18th both the Sun and Mercury – two very beneficent planets – cross your Mid-heaven and enter your 10th career house. You begin a yearly career peak and you seem very successful – you’re in charge, on top, taking on responsibilities. There is more personal recognition for who you are and for your professional abilities. Your physical appearance and gift of the gab is playing a huge role in your career advancement.
Health is basically good this month, but it does need more attention after the 18th. At least half the planets are in stressful aspect with you then. Thus, if there are any vulnerabilities (genetic or otherwise) there is a greater likelihood that they will flare up. So, the first step is to make sure you get enough rest. Then enhance the health in the ways mentioned in the yearly report.

You’re still in a yearly career peak until the 20th. The planets in your career house are friendly ones, helpful to you. This signals success. You have much cosmic support; the universe wills your success. By the 20th, as your shortterm goals are achieved, your attention shifts to the social life – to friendships, groups and group activities. Though Mars is still in your 7th house until the 17th, creating some friction and perhaps power struggles, your love planet,
Jupiter, is receiving good aspects and you seem in basic harmony with the beloved.
Jupiter starts to go backwards on the 9th, while Mercury goes into retrograde motion on the 23rd. This complicates love somewhat. Both you and the beloved seem indecisive and lacking in direction. You’re not antagonistic or anything (Mars leaves your 7th house on the 17th), just kind of ‘wishy washy’.
Health still needs attention until the 20th but is improving. Day by day you get stronger. On the 6th Mercury and Venus move into harmonious aspect with you; on the 17th Mars moves away from his stressful aspect (as we have seen); and on the 20th the Sun starts to make harmonious aspects. Early in the month continue to enhance the health in the ways mentioned in the yearly report. By the 20th you should be back to normal.
Finances don’t seem a big issue these days. Your 2nd money house is empty of planets and this is basically a good sign. It shows a status quo kind of month.
There is no need to make important changes or to pay undue attention here.
The career is much more important than finance. Yet, prosperity seems greater than last month. First of all we have two Full Moons (the second is called the ‘Blue Moon’ – a rarity – and the origin of the expression ‘once in a blue moon’). Full Moons are good financial days, and the 26th is an especially good financial day as the Moon is at ‘perigee’ – her closest distance to the Earth – and her impact is even stronger. In general the 17th to the 31st – the waxing Moon – is the best period for finances.

On February 18 there was a decisive shift of planetary power, from the Western half (the social sector of your chart) to the independent Eastern sector (the sector of self). The shift is approaching its maximum point (this will happen in the next two months), and now it is time to develop your personal initiative and personal skills. These are what matter at present. It is wonderful to be popular socially, but one also needs a strong centre – strong core – a strong sense of who we are. This is the time to develop this. What do you like?
What conditions make you happy? What is your opinion on politics or the world? Never mind what others think, or whether your opinions are popular or not – this is you and it is wonderful. It is time to be your authentic self. And since personal independence is so strong now, make the changes that need to be made in your conditions. Fashion your circumstances to your personal liking.
You have the power and planetary support. Your happiness is very much up to you.
Health is miraculously good now. There is only one long-term planet in stressful alignment; all the others are either in harmony or leaving you alone.
Perhaps the easing of the career demands have something to do with this.
Venus moves into your sign on the 24th. For women of childbearing age this signals heightened fertility. In general it brings more fun into life. You’re more playful. Venus in your sign enhances the personal appearance. There is more grace and charm in your demeanour. You are more involved with children and are perhaps a bit of a child yourself. This is a very good period for buying clothing or accessories, as your taste will be spot on. For single men, this aspect brings young women into the personal sphere. For a woman it shows more beauty and grace in the appearance.
Your love planet Jupiter is still retrograde, and this will go on for some more months. So there is no need to rush love or make important decisions one way or another. Let love develop as it will.
Your spiritual 12th house becomes powerful from the 20th onwards, so it is a good time for spiritual-type pursuits – meditation, spiritual studies, the study of sacred scripture and charitable activities. It is a period for internal growth.

A happy, prosperous month ahead, Gemini – enjoy!
Health was good last month and is even better in the month ahead (Mars moves into harmonious alignment with you from the 16th onwards). With more energy there are more possibilities open to you. Things that seemed beyond your reach even a few months ago are now eminently do-able. If you like, you can enhance your health even further in the ways mentioned in the yearly report.
Job opportunities have been good all year, and especially so now. The only issue here is a need to do more research on these things. Ask more questions.
Resolve all doubts. Things are not what they seem.
You’re still very much in a strong spiritual period until the 21st. So it is good to focus on your inner life and your inner growth. When we are right spiritually, the other areas of life tend to fall into place.
Uranus’s major move into your spiritual 12th house on the 16th signals impending spiritual changes. You’re going to be changing teachers, teachings and your spiritual practice over the coming years, perhaps multiple times. You will be taking a more scientific approach to it. You’re going to be more experimental, learning through trial and error.
Venus remains in your 1st house until the 19th and you can refer to our discussion of this last month. On the 19th she moves into your money house and brings added prosperity. She will bring luck in speculations – especially on the 31st – and prosperity for the children or children figures in your life. They should be more supportive of you as well (there are many ways they can do this, depending on their age and stage in life). Money is earned in happy ways.
The Moon is at her perigee on the 17th and it should be a good financial day.
The New Moon of the 15th and the Full Moon of the 29th are powerful financial days. In general, earnings will be stronger from the 15th to the 29th – as the Moon waxes – than before the 15th. The waxing Moon gives more enthusiasm and power to your earning ability.
The Sun enters your sign on the 21st and you begin one of your yearly personal pleasure peaks. You look and feel great!

Best Days for Career: 5, 6, 7, 14, 15, 23, 24
During last month and this month the planetary power is at its maximum Eastern position for the year. Thus you’re in your most independent period. If you haven’t yet made the changes that need to be made – changes that enhance your happiness – now is the time to act. Later on, as the planets move towards the West, it will be more difficult to do. At times like these we realize that the cosmos cares about our happiness and takes a personal interest. It cares even about the seeming ‘little things’ – that you have the right clothes, accessories and image. And, later, as the Sun enters your money house on the 22nd, you will see that it cares about your finances and wants you to be rich. (The only caveat is that you have to allow it to do things its way and not your way. You sort of have to stand aside and allow ‘affluence’ to be affluence.)
Career is still important these days – you still have a lot of planets in the upper half of your chart – but since last month the lower half of your Horoscope has become much stronger. It is time to pay more attention to your self, your family and your emotional well-being. Time also to have some fun and to pamper yourself a bit, and to get your body and image to where you want it to be.
The Sun in your own sign enhances the mind and communication skills (which are always good). There is star quality to the image. You shine and the opposite sex takes notice. As the expression goes ‘you are the message that you want to send’, and because you dazzle more, your message gets across.
Finances have not been a major issue this year, but this month they are.
Venus has been in your money house since the 19th of last month and she will be there until the 14th of this month. On the 1st and 2nd she makes beautiful aspects to both Jupiter and Neptune. This brings luck in speculations, perhaps a pay rise (either official or unofficial) and great financial intuition. On the 12th Mercury also moves into the money house, indicating strong personal interest in finances (which is 90 per cent of the battle – we get what we focus on). And on the 22nd the Sun, too, moves into the 2nd house. You’re in a yearly financial peak. Prosperity is happening. Family support also looks good. From the 19th to the 21st Mercury will make nice aspects to Jupiter and to Neptune, signalling a nice payday. This aspect is excellent for the career as well – you have the favour of the authority figures in your life. It is also a happy romantic period.

The month ahead is basically happy and prosperous, but two eclipses will ensure that things never get boring. They will keep you on your toes.
The Solar Eclipse of the 13th occurs in your money house and indicates a need for financial course corrections. Your financial thinking and strategy hasn’t been realistic, as the events of the eclipse will show. Sometimes, this kind of eclipse brings some unplanned expense and this forces change. The changes you have to make will be good in the long run, but usually the process isn’t pleasant. Every Solar Eclipse impacts on the siblings, sibling figures and neighbours in your life. Siblings will have to redefine themselves. Cars and communication equipment get tested too, and often need repair or replacement.
Drive more carefully at this time. Pluto, your health planet, is affected by this eclipse, and thus there will be important changes in your health regime. Often people change doctors or therapists under an eclipse like this; sometimes there is a health scare. However, your health is good these days and this is most likely no more than a scare – get a second opinion. Job changes are likely, but don’t worry; you have awesome job prospects this year. Sometimes the conditions of work are changed. If you employ others, there is instability with them.
The Lunar Eclipse of the 27th occurs in your 9th house, so avoid foreign travel during this period. If you must travel, schedule it around the eclipse.
College students (or college-bound students) make important changes to their educational plans. Sometimes they change schools or courses. Finances are affected by this eclipse too, as the eclipsed planet, the Moon, is your financial planet. There’s no doubt that your financial thinking hasn’t been realistic and needs a good course correction, and the changes you make now will set the course for future prosperity. This eclipse affects both Mars and Uranus, so there are dramas in the lives of friends – life-changing events – and your hightech equipment and gadgetry gets tested. Make sure important files are backed up and that your anti-virus, anti-hacking software is up to date. I have found, in my personal experience, that the movements of the universe definitely affect sensitive mechanical equipment. The only question is how, and that is not yet clear.

You thought you were finished with eclipses last month, but not yet. There is one more, the third Solar Eclipse of the year, on the 11th. It mirrors, in many ways, the previous one of July 13, but more so. It occurs in your 3rd house of communication and impacts on the planetary ruler of that house. So you should drive more carefully and defensively this period. If you don’t need to drive, it would be better not to. If you must do so, be more careful. Cars and communication equipment will get tested once again. The universe wants only the best for you; anything less will go by the board. Once again there are dramas in the lives of siblings, sibling figures and neighbours. Sometimes there are upheavals in your neighbourhood – new construction, etc. Students are also affected. They may change schools or educational plans, and sometimes there are shakeups and disturbances in the smooth running of their institutions.
The month ahead, in spite of the eclipse, looks happy, however. Your 3rd house of communication and intellectual interests – your favourite house – is very strong. The mental faculties (always good) are even stronger right now.
Students learn faster. Information is retained.
Health is basically good this month, but you need to pay a bit more attention after the 22nd. It is nothing serious here, only a reduction of your normal energy. (Often this is not felt as this is very subtle, but it can make one more susceptible to opportunistic infections.) Enhance the health in the ways mentioned in the yearly report.
The planetary power (the short-term planets) is now energizing the bottom half of your chart. Thus it is time to shift some energy and attention to the home, family and emotional concerns. Time to get more into ‘emotional wellness’. Career is still very important – the upper half of the Horoscope is still very strong – so you’re not going to ignore it completely. But now you should work on creating a stable home life as well. This is the main challenge at present – to be successful in the career and at home.
Finance is not a big issue this month. The Full Moon of the 26th will be a strong financial day, and so will the Moon’s perigee (the point when it is closest to the Earth) on the 10th. The 11th to the 26th – the Moon’s waxing period – will tend to be better than when the Moon is waning (from the 1st to the 9th and the 26th to the 31st).

With Neptune, your career planet, in retrograde motion since June 18, and with your 4th house of home and family very strong right now, career issues need time to resolve themselves and you may as well focus on domestic matters.
However, though career issues seem cloudy, the demands on you are still strong.
The power in the 4th house, as our regular readers know, means more than just home and family. It involves cosmic therapy. Many, many problems have their origin in the memory body. Old traumas, unresolved, can be retriggered or restimulated. When challenging events happened in childhood, powerful (and usually negative) statements were made and then forgotten about. Yet, these statements (commands, if you will) are still operating and are often impeding progress. So, when the 4th house is strong, nature will bring up old memories so that they can be viewed from your current level of understanding.
What is terrifying to a three-year-old brings only smiles to an adult. It’s not so much about rewriting history – the events happened – but it’s about reinterpreting history, giving the events a different (and, hopefully, healthier) ‘spin’. This makes all the difference in the world to our emotional wellness.
Apparently random memories will come up, but they’re not random. They have significance for your life in the ‘here and now’. Look at them and the feelings they arouse in you. Examine them. They will lose any power they once had over you.
This is also a good month for those of you involved in formal kinds of psychological therapy. There is more progress happening. The New Moon of the 9th is going to clarify both emotional issues and the family situation as the month progresses. The information you need to make a good decision will come to you naturally and normally, with little stress on your part.
Health still needs watching until the 22nd, but there will be a big improvement after then. In the meantime, as always, make sure to get enough rest. Enhance the health in the ways mentioned in the yearly report.
This is an excellent month for job seekers – especially until the 22nd. The Sun in Virgo favours work, and Pluto, your planet of work, receives good aspects until that date. (The 10th, 11th, 15th and 16th are especially good days for job seekers.)

Last month, on the 22nd, you entered another one of your yearly personal pleasure peaks. This is not just about having fun – which will happen – but about recharging the batteries so that future work will go better. If you take advantage of this period, you’ll find new ideas and a new zest for work after the 23rd of this month. This is a good period (until the 23rd) to explore your personal creativity – especially your writing.
Last month, the planetary power began to shift from the independent Eastern sector (the sector of the self) to the social Western sector (the sector of others).
At least 70 per cent (and sometimes 80 per cent) of the planets are now in the West and this will be the situation for a few months. Personal independence is therefore weaker, but the cosmos compensates you in other ways. You’re forced to develop (and rely on) your social skills – your ability to gain the cooperation of others. The planetary power flows towards others now, rather than towards you, and your way is probably not the best way right now. Let others have their way, so long as it isn’t destructive. Adapt to unpleasant conditions as best you can. Make a note of what needs to be changed: when the planetary power moves towards your sector (the Eastern half of your chart) again, you’ll be able to make these changes and they will happen easier.
Uranus has been in your 12th house of spirituality since May and is causing much ferment in your spiritual life. You’ve been making all kinds of changes to your practice and teachings (especially those of you born early in the sign of Gemini). But now, with your spiritual planet (Venus) going retrograde on the 5th, it will be better to study things further before making any important changes. (In fact, all the planets involved in your spirituality are retrograde this month – along with Venus, Neptune, the generic spiritual planet and Uranus, the occupant of your 12th house are both moving backwards.) Dreams and your intuition need more verification these days. They are accurate, but the meaning might not be what you think.
The retrograde of Venus (which is rare – it only happens every two years) affects children and children figures in your life. While they are prospering this year (and especially this month) they seem to lack personal direction. They are not sure what they really want or what their personal goals should be.

Love and romance is the major headline of the month ahead. For those of you already in a relationship there is more (and happy) social activity, while those of you who are unattached are sure to meet interesting prospects. Jupiter, your love planet, moves into your 7th house of love on the 8th. Thus he is in his own sign and house and is both celestially and terrestrially strong. He is ultrapowerful on your behalf and your social grace – your social magnetism – is unusually strong. It is as if you’ve taken a ‘love pill’ or love potion. People are attracted to you.
Many a Gemini will marry in the next twelve months. Many will be involved in relationships that are ‘like’ marriage but without the formalities. Businesstype partnership could also happen. On the 22nd the Sun will join Jupiter in your 7th house and you enter a yearly love and social peak. For some of you (much depends on your age) it will be a life-time peak.
Mercury, the ruler of your Horoscope, spends the month in your 7th house too. This adds to your popularity. You are there for others – and especially for the beloved. You’re in the mood for romance. You reach out to others and take a proactive approach to love. All month is good for love, but the 24th to the 28th (when the Sun travels with Jupiter) and the 29th and 30th (when Mercury travels with Jupiter) seem best.
The social life is active, but so is the career and it will be a challenge to juggle both. Mars crosses your Mid-heaven on the 16th and enters your 10th house of career, signalling a need to be more aggressive in the career. Friends are succeeding and helping out, and your technological expertise is playing a huge role from the 16th onwards. The planetary shift from the bottom half to the top half of your Horoscope also indicates a focus on career. You’re working hard, but the work seems to pay off. There is success.
The New Moon of the 7th and the Full Moon of the 23rd are powerful financial days – especially the latter as it occurs in your own sign. The 26th, when the Moon is closest to the Earth, is also an especially good financial day.
(She is at her perigee in your money house.)

Many of the trends we wrote of last month are still in effect in December.
Career and love are the main focuses.
Mars is still in your 10th house career. However, your career planet, Neptune, started moving forward on November 25. There is mental clarity in your career and career path now; it is starting to move forward again. Mars is travelling with Neptune this month and from the 5th to the 7th they will be conjunct. This shows, as we mentioned last month, much activity in the career.
Success comes from boldness and being more aggressive. Neptune by himself can be too passive, but Mars will rouse him into activity.
This aspect also shows the success and help of friends. Online activities and technological expertise boost the career too. Bosses and parents (or parent figures) are having an excellent financial month, and your industry is doing well this month. Venus will give a boost to your career on the 20th and 21st as she makes beautiful aspects to Neptune. Children and children figures in your life are succeeding themselves, and also supporting your career. An appeal to the youth market is helpful careerwise.
Health got more delicate from November 22 onwards, and it will need more attention being paid to it until the 21st of this month. Make sure you get enough sleep. Don’t allow yourself to get over tired and enhance your health in the ways mentioned in the yearly report. The good news is that your 6th house of health is stronger than usual this month. Mercury is there until the 13th, and Venus will be there from the 2nd onwards. This shows that you are paying attention here.
The love life still shines this month. You’re still in a yearly love and social peak until the 21st. Mercury enters your 7th house of love again (this time in forward motion) on the 13th: someone you may have met last month and perhaps backed away from is being given another chance. This aspect makes for social popularity and good fortune in love.
The holiday season tends to be a more social period in the world, but for you it is more so than usual – more so than past holiday seasons.
