Gemini Yearly Forecast 2020
Be the phoenix which rises
Demand a new and better deal around love
This year is all about partnerships. And also about what you share with others and what is shared with you in return. It’s also about rebirth, transformation and power. When we talk about sharing, this has to include power sharing too. Who calls the shots in other words. Is this equal? Or is one party more equal than the other? Expect any imbalances to be addressed as 2020 unfolds for you.
What occurs this year has been longed for or thought about by you for some time. Whether you are aware of this or not. This includes those things that you fear. Franklin D. Roosevelt famously said ‘The only thing we have to fear is fear itself’. This applies to you this coming year. You’ll come to understand that what you thought was scary really isn’t after all.
I’ve Got the Power!
Stepping into your full power and potential is what this year is asking of you. The year begins with a once in a 500-year line up in your 8th house. That’s right. We have not seen anything like this for generations and neither will we again in our lifetimes. Or for many more to come. Your 8th is one of the most powerful and deep houses of your chart. It rules amongst other things money as in corporate money (salary), benefits, maintenance, legacies, wills, mortgages, loans etc. And joint assets you share with a partner such as the marital home or joint accounts. Shares, insurances, taxes, pensions and property dealings also fall under this house. And yes, sex or relationships where sex plays a major role (or not as in some cases).
Pluto is the ruler of this house and you will be well aware it has been in here for several years now. Events around the themes I mentioned are likely to peak or shift dramatically in January as your ruler Mercury, Saturn, Ceres (which also rules power) and the Sun all collide in your 8th over two days governing the 12th and 13th of January. All this takes place against the background of Mars, the ancient ruler of your 8th, in Sagittarius and your 7th house from the 3rd.
This asks you to claim your power (or reclaim it) to renegotiate or set in motion a new deal between you and someone else. This could be your marriage partner or long-term live in love. Your boss or even the bank. Its time to challenge something if you have come to realise power is not being shared equally. And to be unafraid to do so.
Solutions Send You Soaring
This is your house of transformation and rebirth. Jupiter also in here but out of orb of the super-conjunction, nevertheless hands you an opportunity to find a solution to anything that you have feared tackling or has held you back until now. Your symbol for the coming year is the phoenix. We often simply rise above and transcend our problems rather than solve them. Like the phoenix rising from the ashes. That’s you this year, Gemini. Reach higher even if this scares you. Last year saw Jupiter in your 7th of partnerships of all descriptions. This year can see a key one change or deepen. Sometimes the thing we want the most – and this includes love and intimacy or even success, is what scare us the most too. Although we may not be aware of this. 2020 shows you if this is the dynamic ruling your life. And Jupiter allows you to soar above it for good.
Freedom vs. Staying Put
Saturn enters your 9th house on March 22. It’s been almost 30 years since the planet of putting a ring on it (or running rings around something) visited this house in your chart. So, for some of you this will mark your first contradictory visit by Saturn which encloses and restricts, in your zone of freedom. Some of you may even be having your Saturn return. If so, you may feel an intense pull between the desire for freedom and the need to commit to something – or remain in it. Beware as Saturn in here can have you throwing that baby out with the bathwater as your yearning for freedom leads you to overthrow something you have established. Especially given Saturn was involved in that 8th house super weather back in January.
The flip side of this is that you desire freedom but it scares you at the same time. So, you hold yourself back. Saturn in here can often show us the only person placing restrictions on ourselves is actually us. So, you stay in that dead-end job rather than apply for something better. Or you reject opportunities to study or see more of the world. Saturn tells you that leaving your comfort zone may be necessary for freedom. Or paradoxically, that true freedom may come from security. Which one is it for you? December will bring answers.
Look Back At Love to Move Forward
When it comes to managing retrogrades – you rule, Gemini. After all, you’re adept at managing the thrice yearly ones of ruler Mercury. But 2020 delivers a very different kind of retrograde energy. And this occurs right at the start of your birthday season. Venus begins a rare retrograde cycle from May 13 until June 25 in your sign. Not only that, we have the cosmic North Node arriving in your 1st just prior to this. This puts the South Node in your 7th of partnerships. The nodes are linked to karma and a 19-year cycle. What goes around comes around in other words. IF you were 18 or over 19 years ago, time to look back 19 years and see what is repeating now – especially around partnership matters. Have the players changed but the themes remain the same for example?
I should not need to tell you of all signs that beginning a new love affair or even a business partnership under a Venus retrograde is not a good idea. Not unless you enjoy reversals and commitments being reneged on or changed that is. This retrograde can however deliver that blast from the past. If so, due to the nodes, ensure that the issues that caused you to part in the first place are no longer well – issues. Unless you want a repeat performance. Venus retro has you looking back at your love history to unlock your love future. Also, in your 1st it can see you making changes to your appearance, image or style. That theme of the phoenix rising includes a rebirth of you on a physical level.
Charge up Passion to Change Up!
There’s another kind of Back to the Future retrograde happening. This one in your 11th which as well as your friends and connections, rules your goals and your future. Mars which governs passion and action, also makes a rare retrograde in here from September 10. You may become suddenly aware that a group or social scene has lost its lustre. When it comes to those goals – did you lose interest or simply lose hope? Has someone been instrumental in this? Dampening your dreams for example? There’s a saying: Misery loves company. Sometimes others don’t want to be left behind when the phoenix soars. They want us to stay down in the ashes with them. You’ll be looking closely at who empowers and energises you and who doesn’t. This is all about reclaiming your passion about your future. No more mehs. Mars retro asks you what fires you up about your future? You need passion- not ambivalence. If a goal no longer ignites your soul – you need a new one. If friends or other contacts are demolishing your dreams instead of supporting them – you need a fresh support network. If you let go of something that represented a deep desire within you – reclaim it between September and November 14 when Mars heads direct again.
What You Know About Love – and What You Don’t – Yet
The year long themes around sharing and partnership matters culminate in December with a total solar eclipse in your 7th on December 14. This day also sees ruler Mercury in here opposing the North Node in your 1st. You and another are about to come full circle. This also includes business partners, close friends or even that enemy, rival or opponent. Eclipses conceal. Total eclipses mean we are utterly in the dark. In your 7th this relates to someone opposite you. You’ve experienced an intense learning cycle that has seen you revisit the past when it comes to relationships. Now, draw on that and wait for revelations. This can even be around a new relationship beginning which you may not see yet. With the Nodes involved it is also about timing. It’s also not about instant answers. It’s about wait and see and what will be will be.
Freedom and Release
Solutions and opportunities which solve your security vs. freedom dilemma triggered by Saturn are now to hand as 2020 finishes. Jupiter enters its ruling 9th on December 19 opening doors to travel, learning, expansion and banishing doubts around whatever still holds you back. Saturn in your 9th can have you seeing the world in very black and white terms. Jupiter now adds all the 50 shades and more in between. It’s now not about just who you love and what you share but what you love and what the world has to share with you. 2021 promises something bigger. 2020 is your staging point where you get to show how powerful you can be in crafting your own solutions. And in demanding your fair share of anything from money to love, Gemini.
In a nutshell: Time to claim your power. Opportunities arrive for you to transcend anything that holds you back from achieving your true potential. There’s more than enough to go around, Gemini. And that includes love for you in 2020.
