Love that retrograde!

Ruler Mercury shifts into reverse this week and another retrograde cycle begins, Gemini. Now, some of you along with that other Mercury ruled sign Virgo, may be asking why you have to have a ruler that does this so often? Or why couldn’t you be one of those lucky signs whose ruler never retrogrades at all – like the next door sign of Cancer (Moon) or Leo (Sun) for example? First, yes I know there are other signs out there whose rulers don’t retrograde as often. But the thing about those signs is that their rulers retrogrades either last much longer than all the yearly Mercury retros put together, or their rulers when retrograde create even more mayhem and chaos than yours do. So, what about those Cancers and Leos? Their rulers don’t retrograde – ever. Yes, but the Moon changes signs every 2.5 days and waxes and wanes so you’re at the mercy of emotional tides, constant mood swings and cravings for cupcakes. And then there’s eclipses. Those involve the Sun and the Moon and usually mean something’s being covered up. And being your ruler it’s going to be personal. So, I suspect after reading this you are: Love that Mercury retro!

Ceres the planet of reaping what we sow heads direct this week in Mercury’s house in your chart. And Mercury heads retrograde in your 11th. As well as revisiting old friends and old haunts, this retrograde is going to be about looking at how you express your ideas and individuality. And not being able to afraid to do that. You have the Sun, Venus, Eris and Uranus (who rules this house) in here. Some of you may now dust off old ideas and abandoned goals and see they are still relevant. Others may look at the company they keep and realise when they do, they can’t be who they truly are. You know the Retrograde Rules so I don’t need to repeat them. ‘Re’ words define a Mercury retrograde. Revise. Revisit. Refine. Review. And yes, repeat. But now Ceres is direct in Mercury’s house this retro is all about not repeating past mistakes and above all, reclaiming who you are if you’ve been made to feel lately you have to be someone other than yourself. Happy retrograde.

monthly horoscope

What do you need to sustain and support you?

Get empowered

Romance and fun return with added sparkle

Home, family, where you live and just you needing that extra bit of nurturing and emotional reassurance are themes that surface as March begins for you, Gemini. February was a void-full Moon month in that we did not see one. March rectifies this with not one but two, the first of which is in the Moon’s ruling house – your 4th on the 2nd (or the 1st if you are in the US). This will oppose Neptune in your career sector so it could stir up feelings about your long term security and what provides for this – in other words your career or even your partner if you do not work outside the home. Later this month sees a new Moon appear in your 10th – on the 17th to be precise. Use the time between this full Moon and the new Moon to plan and make any adjustments necessary.

Decisions may need to be made this month which affect your work and also how powerful you feel. When we feel capable and empowered, we feel secure within. We know we can take care of ourselves or meet any challenges. So, we can deal effectively with what happens in the outside world and stay in our power no matter what. So, if something ‘rattles’ you emotionally at the start of the month, instead of focussing on the outer event, look within too where you feel disconnected from your own power. Jupiter is about to turn retrograde in your 6th of work and wellbeing from the 9th until July 15. Make any adjustments to your working life, routine and also your beliefs around how capable you are to support yourself – even on an emotional level between now and then. Ruler Mercury also heads retrograde this month in your 11th from the 23rd. This is all about you, your friends, the collective and how you are perceived by others. Or want to be seen for that matter.

Mars will move from your 7th into your 8th – the house of transformation, shared resources, desire, passion, sex and boundaries on the 17th. This was Mars’s ruling house in ancient astrology so we can say he is ‘at home’ in here. He adds courage and conviction as well as stirring up deep passion – perhaps even those passions we have been repressing or not admitting to! This day also sees that new Moon appear. There’s a saying: Good fences make for good neighbours. Mars rules boundaries and when it comes to negotiating anything now – from a relationship, to your salary, a payout or something you share with someone, remember that saying. Give yourself the gift of inner strength by setting those boundaries – and sticking to them. You’ll  be amazed how empowered and secure you feel as a result.

Ruler Mercury is in your 11th of contacts, networks and also goals from the 4th and the Sun enters here on the 20th. This is an opportunity to expand your social circle or even revive it if you have become somewhat of a hermit of late. This is your house of goals and dreams too. That bucket or wishlist that may seem to others like wishful thinking but in fact, you have those dreams for a reason. Review your goals for relevance and ask yourself why you want to achieve them? Go deep here as Mercury shifts to retrograde from the 23rd. Because Jupiter has turned retrograde in one of Mercury’s ruling houses in your chart, you need to think of this retrograde as being Supersized.  You of all signs know the Retrograde Rules and you also know retrogrades serve a purpose. Jupiter rules big dreams, the far horizon and big picture thinking. Do any of your goals fall under this heading? If so, recommit to them. And understand the people who cross your path now, even ones that reappear from the past, may have a key role to play in helping you towards goal attainment.

Above all, look for the unexpected and remain open-minded as we head towards the end of the month as Venus and Uranus collide in what is Uranus’s ruling house. Uranus rules surprises and thrills. He’s the rollercoaster planet, the maverick thinker and the revolutionary who wants us to be who we are and see the world differently. Venus wants connection and love as well as inspiring us creatively. So, an opportunity could arrive that may not look like you thought it would, a new connection could be made with someone very different than you usually encounter and the key here is to not judge or let preconceptions get in the way. See where this can take you. This is a fabulous week for rekindling a friendship or reviving a past love. Old hangouts could feature and if you receive a ‘back to the future’ invite then please accept it. The second full Moon of the month – and therefore a ‘blue’ Moon waxes in your gorgeous sparkling 5th. If a romance has started but has not yet really got going, this could see it get taken to the next level. But also, if it is not for you, then you will now be released. The day of this Moon sees Venus move off into your 12th which is why the past can also play a role. Someone could possibly reappear and you both rediscover a new relevance – or that the old relationship is still there. Remember, retrogrades rule ‘re’ words: revise, review, reinvention, relevance, resonance and yes, relationship. Build yours first with yourself and watch the ones in your outer world fall into place as a result (yes, another ‘re’ word).

In a nutshell: Ruler Mercury is about to head retrograde and you know what that means. New love could spring from the past as something old gets a beautiful update this March.

annual horoscope

Gemini 2018 

Over the past seven years, you will have experienced a revolution in networking and connections. Your ideas about your tribe, clan and collaborators have likely taken a dramatic turn. You have handled this well as you are one of the most flexible and adaptive signs. You tend to adore new stimulation, fresh ideas and can’t abide being stuck with too much routine. Having said that  if you look back seven or eight years, and then check out your belief systems and kinships today, you’ll see how far you’ve come. This is all thanks to Uranus, that extraordinary and maverick planetary Lord who has been in his ruling house in your chart, who shakes things up, so we can discover our inner genius.

Mr Electric Dream is about to change signs and lead you into a new adventure. In May, just prior to your birthday, he enters your subconscious, magical zone and helps you release things that you have hidden or realise what has been hidden from you by others. Secrets might be suddenly exposed, both yours and others, as the way Uranus works is like a bolt from the blue! An unexpected synchronicity or psychic experience may transform you, and if you have any addictions, you can overcome them now, perhaps in an unorthodox way.

Having said that this year is a bit of a tease as Uranus arrives in this house in May and leaves on the 6th November to head back into your 11th during his retrograde period. Pay rapt attention to what happens in between May/November as this may be the only clue you have to what merry dance Uranus will take you on for the next seven years from 2019 onwards when he returns to your 12th. For best results consciously engage and flow with his energy. Whatever happens, there is likely to be a sprinkling of mystery, and you’re urged to become an enchantress of your destiny.

29 Oct 2018,  27 Nov 2018,  21 Dec 2018 are all significant dates for you, write them down! Mercury, your ruler, joins forces with expansive Jupiter in your health and well-being house. You are taking care of the details you need to triumph and changing your routines to optimise your health. You might fall in love with your work and start a path that fulfils your spirit. The key is expansion with Jupiter. To think, act and go boldly. This involves more than one area of your chart so therefore more than one area of your life. Both planets are involved in travel so travel for work, for pleasure and also dealing with people from overseas are also possibilities. Remember, Jupiter ‘bigs’ things up. He opens up our horizons. Time to step into a larger world than the one you usually inhabit.

Saturn has already changed signs as we go into 2018 and he is in your intimacy, power, money, sex and primal zone. I’m not going to say this is easy but I will say that if you play your Tarot right, you might find yourself in a position of authority. Influential people enter your life, and there could even be an inheritance or a windfall that is long overdue. Saturn is all about responsibility, and he will not tolerate BS. It’s time to face all things primal and make sure you use your power wisely and with the utmost integrity. Do this, and you can expect a significant reward.

Pluto and Saturn are both in your primal zone all year making this a profound time. These two Planetary brothers are all about investigating life, death and rebirth, facing wounds from the past and overcoming them and understanding the cycle of your soul. When the Sun conjuncts Pluto on the 9th Jan you should start to understand the benefits of digging deep. Mercury is also joining Saturn on the 13th, and then Mr Quicksilver hugs transformative Pluto. Others might be astonished by how serious and focused you have become. You are earnestly seeking to make a significant change.

Mercury goes retro on the 23rd of March bringing in old friends, teammates and groups that you used to hang out with. Should you reengage? You’ll know by mid-April when you Mercury goes direct and Chiron the wounded healer shifts signs. Chiron has not been here since 1977. Chiron is a comet which has a unique orbit, and his gift to us is not only to heal our wounds but to use our painful experiences to help others. What issues do you have when it comes to a sense of belonging? Have you ever felt like the odd one out or do you have a pattern in group environments? Chiron is hanging about for some time and encourages you to give back and share what you’ve learned.

Venus is sweeping into your relationship zone on the 7th August and bringing some much-needed peace and harmony. You’re able to experience soul connections that sparkle. Beauty is everywhere, and you’re every inch the lover. From the 8th November, lucky Jupiter also enters your love zone helping all your intimate relationships stretch, grow and empower you. Singles could be entering their every own version of Love Island. At least one potential partner could present themselves. They could have a touch of the exotic adventurer about them or just be larger than life on some level. They see love as a journey or an adventure. Are you ready to join them on it? Jupiter has not visited this sector of your chart for 12 years and he will be intent on you learning about the Power of Two on some level. Just remember this house rules partnerships of all kinds – business, activity, collaborative and our long term friendships too. If we feel an affinity to a special animal soul this would also come under the rulership of the 7th house – especially as Jupiter rules large animals such as horses. Be open to what form your partnership experience will take. But know that one will be coming. Others could see Jupiter’s benefits manifest via their partner’s success or a partnership now move on to the next stage.  

The 7th is also our house of open enemies but with Jupiter in here, if you do have to deal with someone difficult, you are unlikely to be fazed by their antics. You’re more likely to laugh than get upset. But Jupiter has our back and if you have been dealing with someone unpleasant for a while, you may find Jupiter just removes them from your orbit or just that they no longer have the power to upset you the way they used to. As this is your house of long term partnerships, just be aware that while Jupiter is all about bringing us benefits and amazing strokes of luck, if something is broken beyond repair, Jupiter cannot fix it for you. What he can do however, is make is easier to part amicably than at any other time. And if you have learned from this, place a new love opportunity in your path when you are ready.

There’s an electric excitement and the power of potential surrounding you this year. So be adaptable, maintain an expansive mindset and be ready to embrace whoever or whatever arrives as changes to how you love, your ideas and your personal power base bring you thrills and the unexpected right out of the blue!
