Gemini Horoscope (May 21 - June 20)
Your ruling planet is Mercury.
The hits just keep on coming, Gemini. The series of transformations that you have been engaged in for many months won’t let up in 2012, quite the contrary. Your changes have taken a new turn recently. You are making yet another evolutionary leap in this present month that will take you further along the path that you all along knew you needed to follow. This time your vision really has legs for a new future plan more closely aligned with soul-purpose. A whole new world will open up for you as this period unfolds. It will not be without struggle, and it might not look pretty, but there is a rich spiritual component associated and that’s enough to take you a long, long way down your road.
As the month begins, you are feeling the pull of destiny calling. This is in alignment with the potent CapricornNew Moon that took place just after the Winter Solstice, on Christmas Eve, and in your sector of personal evolution. This is a powerful year for you that is just being born, this year of 2012, which has an excellent chance of living up to its reputation. It’s not that the end of the world will come as some have predicted but it is in many ways the end of the world as we have known it heretofore. There are powerful currents of change sweeping through the cosmos now and they will affect all of us, but for you that action is accelerated. This is because Pluto, activated this month and increasingly in the spring and summer of 2012, will be for you shaking things up in the very sector of your Solar Chart that represents growth and change. This is your chart from the standpoint of your Sun Sign – what is known as “Sun-sign Astrology” and the basis of this column and many others. From this viewpoint, not only is Pluto in its natural house setting but so also is Uranus, the revolutionary companion to radically transformative Pluto. This other outer planet heavy weight is located in your Eleventh sector, representing the group connections, societal goals and ideals of social interaction, including friendships, that form the basis of your future planning. You have felt the inspiration of Uranus in that sector of your chart for many months now but it is in this year that that idealistic vision turns more directly into action. There also whispers of a more subtle state of being that you are undoubtedly feeling at this time, ideas and ideals that spring from deep inside you, places far below and beyond the level of your conscious mind and its normal ability to analyze and deconstruct. This is a realm of gestalt, where paradox abounds, and you are strongly affected from this perspective right now, as you make your way through the challenges of this month and year. As you undergo a powerful mandate for change in your own life, and for participating in the changes sweeping through the social matrix that surrounds you, you are also pulled down into a deep spiritual connection that underlies and sustains all of your social interactions as you ponder on life’s surprising twists and turns. This is essentially a meditation on how you might find your way forward with the greatest possible integrity. When you honor these deep stirrings within you, you honor the cosmos and Spirit acting through you, and you honor yourself as well. The Full Moon of Sunday evening, January 8th, is a powerful one, and illuminates all of these same themes and brings many of them into sharp relief. Your ruler Mercury also enters Pluto’s current domain of Capricorn coincident with the New Moon, so that for the next three weeks you are more strongly pulled toward transformation than ever, and to intimate connection with others, as a natural by-product. You are tuning in more completely to your hidden self, the self that represents your most unconscious parts. Shakespeare acknowledged the power of this unseen but clearly felt inner world when he declared that “we are such stuff as dreams are made of,” although we mostly fail to acknowledge this potent factor that flies in the face of mere logic but still holds sway with our underlying motivations. At this important juncture, you do well to pay all the attention that you can muster to the intuitive understanding that comes your way right now in bucket loads. With the Last Quarter Moon of Monday, January 16th, you are feeling into a deeply intuitive presence that reminds you of what you need to do in order to be connected to your true heart’s desire. Your attitude right now is one of reflection on where you have been over the course of the past portions of the cycle and what in the final analysis it all boils down to, as you carry the distilled wisdom of this time into the next. The New Moon of Sunday evening, January 22nd, takes place in your sector of higher mind, and it finds you integrating all this information and more as you advance to the next stage of your rapidly evolving worldview. You are finding the power of your inner world and entering into a meditative period that takes you to the inside, to your root psychology, your metaphoric dwelling. Your actual physical space might also be subject to reversals at this time, and remodels or plans to move could also go awry, as the year opens into February and beyond. There is a symbolic level at which everything still serves you and furthers your mission. You will have plenty of food for thought as you rearrange your understanding of who you are at base, and as you attempt to discover your true psychological place within home, family, and tribe.
