Click daily, weekly or monthly for your horoscope
Any month that begins with six planets in your financial sector and will host a lunar eclipse in your income sector is going to have a lot of focus on money matters. While the six planets are on the side of the financial fence that is more focused on what you do with and how you manage the money you have, the lunar nodes continue to police a balance between money coming in and money going out. What the North Node in your income sector lacks in direct planetary activity there, it not only makes up for with its power to steer things in a lucrative direction but support from planets in your work and career sectors. While Mars will leave your work sector on 3rd January, ending all planetary activity on the career front, Venus' return to your career sector on 14th January will simply shift the focus there. Venus will join Neptune, who has been a pivotal support for not only Mars in your work sector but the North Node in your income sector as well. It is the Moon's visit to your income sector from 9th January to 12th January that will create the lunar eclipse on 10th/11th January. With Mercury not leaving your financial sector until 17th January and the Sun until 21st January, they will be on that side of the fence as the Moon moves through. This could see financial tensions rise during that time but this will increase the potential for a breakthrough on both fronts. In the meantime, while your financial and professional year gets off to an empowered start, your personal life is also being catered for. When Mars leaves your work sector on 3rd January it is to begin a nearly seven week visit to your relationship sector. You also start the year with Juno not only in a playful part of your chart but at a friendly aspect to Venus in an adventurous part. As it is Venus who will pick up from where Mars leaves off on the job front when she returns to your career sector, between them they are also making sure life doesn't become all work and no play.
Week beginning Monday 20th of January 2020
The Moon continues to make an impact, though in a different way than it did last week. The Moon will spend the first 28 days of each year making a complete orbit of all 12 areas of your chart, giving you a window into each for the first time in the context of a new year. Last week the Moon travelled through areas of your chart where there isn't a lot of planetary activity if any. It is a visit to one of those areas that is just wrapping up on Monday, with the Moon taking a deep dive into work and job matters. This week the Moon is travelling through a heavily populated part of the sky, amplifying the forces already there. It begins when the Moon joins Mars in your relationship sector on Monday, with the two fuelling a lot of strong emotional and passionate responses. On Wednesday the Moon is off for a deeper dive into money matters, just a day after the Sun leaves your financial sector. It is over the weekend that the Sun and Moon will meet up to create the first New Moon of 2020, in an adventurous part of your chart.
Thursday 23rd of January 2020
The biggest benefit from having the Moon return to your financial sector just a day after the Sun left and as it is settling into an adventurous part of your chart, is that it puts both on an equal footing. The solar spotlight may have shifted off your financial situation and money matters, but as the Moon aligns with lucky Jupiter here today it is clear that the journey to take your financial power back continues. At the same time, the Sun is also highlighting the importance of adventure, travel, learning and discovery.
Gemini is the third sign, ruled by the planet Mercury, the quicksilver messenger God of our zodiac. It's from Mercury that you get your clever mind, your superb powers of persuasion, your often restless spirit and your (sometimes insatiable) need for mental exploration.
The mythological Mercury was a trickster, a silver-tongued talker who could bargain with clever logic. Fleet of foot and freedom-loving, Mercury had wings on his feet and liked to use them, forever flitting from one place to another. You like to use the wings on your feet too and you don't like to feel hemmed in. At any social gathering, you have to be free to mingle.
Mercury traditionally rules over barter and trade and our signposts and highways, in more modern day he still rules our roads and motorways, as well as the cars we drive on them and the signposts that guide our way. Our postal service, telephone systems, schools and shops all belong to Gemini, and there are many of you sharp-witted folk employed in those areas.
The mode of Gemini is mutable, which means you're adaptable and changeable. Unlike our fixed friends of the zodiac, who like to keep things the same, you positively thrive on variety and change. This can make you something of a Jack of all trades, you learn quickly and bore easily, forever adding to your knowledge. It's likely that you're a veritable mine of information.
Not knowing or not understanding can equate to worry or actual suffering for Gemini. You can sometimes live on your nerves and you find the unknown a fearful place. You grow in strength as you grow in understanding, while the more you know, the more information you have to share and the more secure you become.
There are many myths of twins and usually one is alive on the earth while the other resides in the underworld, sometimes they exchanged places. Your Gemini mind can be in two places at once and you can sometimes be easily distracted. However, no other sign can multi-task as effortlessly, nor as efficiently as you!
Being an air sign, people experience you like a breath of fresh air You get along well with the other air signs, Libra and Aquarius. You also get along like a house on fire with the fire signs, Aries, Leo and Sagittarius.
You can find yourself feeling stifled or smothered by too much earth, people with lots of Taurus, Virgo or Capricorn. Or you can feel suffocated by too much water, the signs of Cancer, Scorpio or Pisces.
Much of this depends on your own planetary blend of energy. Although Mercury is always close to the Sun, it's not always in the same sign. Those of you with Mercury at home in its own sign will have a more pure experience of the essence of Gemini.
If you don't know where Mercury is positioned in your horoscope, one of our astrologers will be happy to help.
