For the first several months of the year, it’s important to tie up loose ends, completing projects you’ve been working on for a while. Do what you can to cross things off your to-do list and clear your plate. That’s because come June 11th, generous Jupiter moves into Gemini where it will stay through next June. With the planet of luck and abundance in your sign, it may feel as if you have a guardian angel. Opportunities arise that increase your confidence and pave the way for self-growth and an unfolding of a “new you.”
Your planetary ruler, messenger Mercury, goes retrograde about three times each year. This year, these periods are March 12th through April 4th, July 14th through August 8th, and November 6th through the 26th. During these three-plus week windows, you could feel a bit out of sorts, with communications seemingly challenged. Use these opportunities to tune into your intuition and re-evaluate your approach to life. Doing so will offer up great rewards.
A powerful Gemini Solar Eclipse occurs on May 20th inspiring a new life direction. The Eclipse forms a stressful alignment with imaginative Neptune. So be inspired but also keep your visions realistic.
Beginning in early October, and for the next two-plus years, taskmaster Saturn will be in Scorpio and your 6th House of Routines. It’s a great time to take stock of your health and find self-care practices that better your sense of well-being.
