Obsessive much, Gemini? Today's moon-Pluto trine could find you harping on that same old situation again. Instead of spiraling into despair, do something to transform this. The more you focus on the pain, the more it expands in your psyche. It's time to chase after a happier option. Replace the drama by doing something proactive and let yourself be consumed by this healthier pursuit. PS: Finding a happy, healthy community of friends may figure into the equation.
Draw the drapes and light some tea candles. Stoic Saturn turns retrograde in your eighth house of intimacy, sexuality and secrets until September 6. This yearly review reminds you to cherish your alone time and cultivate a deeper connection to self. Your hermetic ways may cool a budding romance, but the flip side is that you may find it easier to home in spiritually and emotionally. Address buried feelings and tacit resentments, especially ones dimming your mojo. Work through those issues to bring the sexy back. Just be careful not to mistake lust for love. Saturn’s backspin may leave you entangled in an unhealthy obsession, even tempted by a clandestine affair. If you play with fire, expect drama to ensue.
You’ll take social networking to a whole new level today, Gemini, as the Sun dances its annual do-si-do with radical Uranus in Aries and your eleventh house of group activity. Part of your charm offensive is treating everyone with the same respect—and subtly flirtatious manner! At work meetings or out on the town, you’re equally comfortable chatting up the CFO and the coat-check person. But it’s not all superficial banter. If you’ve got an idea to pitch or a big ask to make, wait for your moment…then seize it!
Need a nap, Gemini? As the Sun flits into Taurus and your sleepy twelfth house, the next four weeks could feel like an extended retreat. If you've been dragging around mental baggage, make healing a priority. Surrender may be the first step. What (or who) are you trying in vain to control? The seemingly futile situation may improve with a little time and space—not to mention some quality therapy sessions. And if not, it's likely to be replaced by a far better option when Gemini season begins on May 20. On a purely practical level, you can improve your life by decluttering your space and detoxing your diet.
Snap your wallet shut, Gemini. Sure, a round of retail therapy sounds like exactly what the cosmos ordered after a stressful week at work. But with the moon in your financial house locked in an unsettling square with impulsive Uranus, you’ll only end up with a wicked case of buyer's remorse. Is an indulgent friend tempting you to splurge on dinner or a pricey last-minute jaunt? Not so fast. Spend within your means, and do your best to scratch the itch for adventure in a way that won’t break the bank.
Eyes on the prize, Gemini! Saturday is all about productivity, as the moon revs up your practical second house and turns your attention to finances and housekeeping tasks. Clear out your inbox, pay bills and refill the fridge with healthy fare. On Sunday, when the quarter moon in Leo lands in your communication zone, you may finally heal a rift with a sibling or close friend. A compromise is possible, but it takes two. Can you give another inch, Gemini? Also on Sunday: Penetrating Pluto turns retrograde in Capricorn and your esoteric eighth house until September 30. Plunge below the surface. Life's mystical and seductive elements have always fascinated you, possibly to the point of obsession. One warning: Pluto's retrograde can mask people's true intentions, so don't take things at face value—no matter how adorably chiseled that face may be. Even a spring fling could become a fixation, so pace yourself to avoid a romantic misstep.
