On Monday, April 22, shift your attention out of your logical left brain and VIBE your way to important decisions. The skies feature a rare (once-a-year), game-changing mashup of the illuminating Sun and disruptor Uranus. This is the first time since 1942 that this merger is happening in Taurus and your twelfth house of introspection, transitions and healing. You’ve got greater access to information than you may realize, Gemini, but it’s not going to come from a Google search. Start paying attention to “signs” and synchronicities that are too meaningful to be coincidences (they're probably not). Dreams are another rich source of intel, so before you lunge out of bed, linger to recall the ones that feel closest to the surface. Read between the lines of what people are saying. And above all, listen closely to that little voice inside of you—or that unmistakable feeling in your gut—that seldom steers you wrong. On the healing front, if you've got some forgiveness work to do (or ask for), this is a perfect day for some major shifts in important relationships.
Wednesday’s skies feature a major cosmic switcheroo: Penetrating Pluto shifts into its annual retrograde, once again in Capricorn and your intensifying eighth house. Your upbeat sign prefers to lead with humor and intellect, but while the “lord of the underworld” is back-pedaling here, you may lose your tolerance for small talk and superficiality. These next five months bestow the necessary certification to deep-dive into metaphysical, transformative work—as well as into the hidden chambers of your own inner world and emotions. While at first it may feel like terra incognito, once you become more familiar with it, you may come to relish the opportunities to make profound changes in your life, especially in stuck or stagnant areas. Pluto is on a long, slow crawl through Capricorn from 2008 to 2024. Now that you’ve passed the halfway point, you might realize just what’s changed: Your intuition has probably sharpened; you may have developed new ways of dealing with close relationships. Some couples will deepen their bonds with radical honesty and a stronger commitment while others may decide to consciously uncouple or open up the partnership. Since Pluto AND the eighth house have a Scorpionic flavor, you could be attracted to very different people and ways of connecting. But due to the retrograde motion, any plans you make—whether single or spoken for—may need to be negotiated yet again come October 3. Beware negative emotions like rage, jealousy and even obsession during this cycle. They may make you feel powerful in the moment, but if left unchecked, they will plant the seeds of self-destruction.
On Saturday, trickster Neptune makes an appearance, scrambling signals by sending a disruptive beam to activator Mars in your sign. Just when you thought it was safe to chill out and make the most of what’s left of the weekend, you may need to snap to attention. While you can’t predict—let alone control—others’ behavior, you can proactively prevent getting sucked into a needy friend’s or relative’s drama. (And if you don’t, you’ll wind up kicking yourself, asking why you didn’t see THAT coming.) And should any conversation veer into hot-mess territory, heed the warning signs and let the person know you care, but you’re not presently in a position to go “there.”
