You are entering into what is fundamentally an optimistic time period now, Gemini, even though you are also left with a feeling of déjà vu and a sobering reminder that everything is not exactly what it might appear to be. Let your faith win out and you will be the better for it, even if things do change once you have set your course in any one particular direction. Since your ruler Mercury is retrograde this month it might be best to withhold judgment regarding any particular final outcome. You have the power now to imagine a future life path that really works for you instead of one that just pretends. This is a marvelous opportunity and not to be missed, even if the devil really is in the details of working it through over the next few weeks and months.
As the month begins, you are in a very string intuitional place regarding future trends for yourself. Some version of your future is sitting out there for you, and yet of course it is multiple potential futures that await, and that depend on your faith and your decision process to become actualized. You have such a concentration of planets right now in your eleventh sector of wishes and goals, and of social networking also, that you cannot help but be swept along into some notion of what you might be able to manifest over the months to come. The purity of this vision for your future and for yourself is complicated by the fact that your ruler, Mercury, is also retrograding through the same sector of your Solar chart. Anything that you think through to its conclusion now will have to be adjusted over the five week time span represented by the Mercury retrograde period and the time after stationing direct when Mercury is regaining its former Zodiacal longitude. This will be mid-May, so it might be best to adopt a "wait-and-see" attitude until then. You still have the opportunity now to begin to imagine what you truly want to get out of life and the enthusiasm and also the steadiness to pull it off. The New Moon of Sunday, April 3rd, represents the peak of the energy of this first part of the month, and takes you mentally down many paths the lead you forward into your next phase. These first two weeks are the best times to dream and plan and perhaps to journal regarding where you are headed. Since Saturn, representing limitations, is also strongly constellated now, the difficulties inherent in what you visualize are also part of your thinking at this time. You are in the process of firming up your concept of who you are, in relation to others around you and also for yourself alone. This is a powerful time relationship-wise, as well as with regard to your individual progress toward your goals. It is in some way inevitable that you cannot have the one without the other. As the month continues to unfold, the First Quarter Moon of Monday, April 11th, might give you pause. This is a time when you become very much aware of the implicit difficulties in making your vision more concretely available to you in actual physical terms, and when your faith is tested by events. It is also a time when you are likely to rise to the occasion and take an active stand for what you believe in, perhaps making your case in no uncertain terms. As always, moderation is the key to success without overdoing a dogmatic approach to solving interpersonal problems that could arise. The Full Moon of Sunday, April 17th, represents a time of greater balance, when you are getting a glimpse of the mystical underpinning of all that you see and do. Bringing this factor into your thought and decision process is crucial for you at this time, and ameliorates any difficulties that you might be experiencing when you take only the more obvious physical world into account. The last two weeks of the month are punctuated by the Last Quarter Moon of Easter Sunday, April 24th, the same weekend when Mercury turns to direct motion, indicating a shift in your awareness. This period of time represents a profound learning experience when you will likely spend much of your energy rehashing the events of the first half of the month and mulling over your possibilities. There is much to gain from contemplation during this time, as you absorb the lessons of this powerful lunation cycle and prepare for the next.
