Click on the day of the week for your daily horoscope:
Want to get closer to somebody, Gemini? Try letting them feel like they’re getting a little closer to YOU. Today, the soulful moon is in your private eighth house. Go on, share an intimate confession with someone and watch your connection get deeper and stronger once you do. Just make sure this person deserves your trust—in other words, don't go venting to the office gossip. This evening, when la luna swings into your adventurous ninth house, reach out to a farther-flung friend. Maybe you can even snag a long-distance invite.
Should you take the road less traveled or stick to the tried-and-true path? Today's tangled angle between an adventurous ninth-house moon and comfort-loving Venus calls for a middle ground. It will be exciting to venture out a bit, mingling with new people and checking out different venues for dining and entertainment. But don't throw out the baby with the bathwater. Just because you discover what seems like the newest, hottest thing doesn't mean it will actually live up to its promise. There's something to be said for people and traditions that have withstood the test of time.
If relationships have been fraught with confusion recently, you can "thank" your cosmic ruler, Mercury, which has been on a wonky trajectory since November 16. But today, articulating difficult feelings—or even facing down an "opponent" to hash out a conflict—becomes exponentially easier. Until January 4, Mercury will cruise through candid Sagittarius and your fair-minded relationship house. In all consequential partnerships, you'll be able to distinguish fantasy from reality AND verbalize your own needs, the most important thing of all!
Talking to strangers, flirting with strangers, even hooking up with “strangers,” ahhh…these are a few of a Gemini’s favorite things. What can you say? Variety is the spice of your life, and frankly, you bore easily. People are attracted to your upbeat energy, so be open to the wide range of people you come into contact with today. If you sense unspoken heat, launch into a conversation with a compliment. Make a point of rubbing shoulders with the power players at the office or an after-work industry shindig. When you turn on that Gemini charm, it's never long before you're setting up time to "do lunch."
Look beyond the tasks at hand and spend some time thinking about the future you'd like to script; and don’t just fleetingly reflect on it. Today’s merger of the moon and visionary Neptune in your tenth house of long-term goals can help you clarify what you really want—and what’s NOT worth struggling for. Your analytical sign might poo-poo a vision board, but science shows that they’re actually an effective way to overcome limiting beliefs. So go ahead, Gemini: Let the cutting and pasting begin!
Is your hard work paying off, or does it feel like you're spinning your wheels? Review the facts and figures under Saturday's quarter moon. If your results aren't hitting the mark (as in bringing job satisfaction or money in the bank or, ideally, both), what can you tweak? Maybe your professional image could use some polish, or you need to take a specialized training to bump your skill set up to 2019 standards. A modest investment could pay off handsomely. Sign up for that Squarespace site, the online class, or those sessions with a coach. The rest of the weekend will be ultra-social as the moon grooves into Aries on Saturday night, lighting up your communal eleventh house for the rest of the weekend. Where are the activists, thought leaders and creative disruptors hanging out? Find them, Gemini, and get inspired to live true to your purpose.
