We’re in the thick of Gemini Season, a total lunar eclipse, and Mercury Retrograde… what could go wrong? Honestly, things happen “good or bad” no matter what the cosmos are up to up there. It’s what we do, or don’t, down here that really matters. When we let our free will get hijacked that’s when we are in trouble.
With Gemini being the ruler of communication, let’s see what the cards say for each sun sign with this in mind.
ARIES – ACE OF PENTACLES
If a great opportunity should arise during this time, hold on to it. So often we are told to “not sign this” or “don’t complete that” during retrograde/eclipses… and that’s fair. BUT! If it’s something you’ve been waiting for, or working your butt off for – don’t let if go if you will regret it later. Read that extra-fine print, or see if you can get an extension with the offer still standing. We don’t want you losing a dream forever. Communicate your desire and interest in the opportunity to ensure that it doesn’t pass you by.
TAURUS – KING OF CUPS
Learn to master balancing your emotions and your intellect. Communicating how you feel this month will be incredibly important, but HOW you do it even more so. Be diplomatic, direct, and honest in your approach. Make sure people hear you. Take responsibility for your emotions and ask for help where you need it most. Even an independent King needs support.
GEMINI – QUEEN OF CUPS REVERSED
Happy Birthday! Are you bottling up your feelings and not communicating? Rare for a Gemini… If you are stewing in your head too much and not expressing yourself tactfully, you might go to “the dark side” and engage in manipulative behavior. Let your feelings be known without projecting onto others.
CANCER – THE HIGH PRIESTESS REVERSED
Your inner voice has something to tell you, but you are not listening. If you’ve lost your connection to “self” take this month to reclaim it. Take time back for you… this is something that Cancer is very good at. When you put the focus back on to yourself and your self-care, you should be able to hear yourself again. Turn all of the external noise off to hear yourself on a subconscious level. I know, a lot of wellness buzz words… but it’s essential that you start listening to your gut more.
VIRGO – THE HERMIT
Some serious alone time might be needed. Taking on individual projects and separating yourself from “group work” could be the break you need right now. It’s all been too much. Too much talking… too many opinions that are not serving you or the best interests of the project. Instead of telling people what to do, or how to do it, just do it yourself and move on. I mean, that’s a Virgo’s dream right?
LIBRA – 9 OF WANDS
You have a great desire, or need, to protect yourself right now – but it could result in you missing a great opportunity. You are so close to the goal, but things are holding you back ever so slightly. One last push. Leave the past behind and communicate your boundaries to others so they don’t hold you back or hurt you again.
SCORPIO – 8 OF WANDS
Lots of movement this month and big changes. Depending on where the eclipse hits your chart, you might be on the literal move this month: A vacation, new relationship, home, or job. Something big. Communicate your desires for whatever it is that way the change is something that you actually want and you aren’t forced into it.
SAGITTARIUS – 9 OF PENTACLES REVERSED
If you’ve been over-spending it might catch up with you this month. If not finances, you might be over-doing it at work in terms of not spending enough time at home with family or time for yourself. Cut back on material gains that are not necessary. Focus on family and home life. What do you and your family need right now? Ask!
CAPRICORN – THE STAR REVERSED
You are on a spiritual quest but have hit a wall. Negativity, either of your own creation or from others, is distracting you from your deep vision to connect with self on a spiritual level. This set back is an opportunity to reassess your routine and plan. Take advantage of this time and enjoy it. If you need space, communicate this. People are in their own bubbles and won’t know what you are dealing with unless you tell them.
AQUARIUS – THE TOWER REVERSED
Are you afraid of, or resisting, change? As the gurus say: without challenge there can be no change. You don’t have to challenge yourself to the point of exhaustion, but a little discomfort and disruption of the “norm” could go a long way for you. If you’ve been avoiding telling someone something what they need to hear in order to avoid conflict, remember that the truth always comes out. They might appreciate hearing it from you directly rather than someone else.
PISCES – 8 OF PENTACLESREVERSED
Is your attention to detail holding you back? With everything having to be “just so” you might be falling behind. Ask yourself if this needs to be perfect or is it just your way of stalling the process because you are afraid of failure? Instead of getting wrapped up in worries that may not even happen, get wrapped up in the joy of finishing something you’ve worked hard on, and moving on to the next great thing. Asking for feedback on your work can help too. If you are hesitant, getting feedback from some else can help push you out of your own limits (that you made up in your head).
