Now we move toward the next phase of approaching summer, when the Sun enters Gemini on Thursday, followed by the New Moon in Gemini on Friday. This precipitates a whole load of meaningless blah blahs that don’t go anywhere; you know, the usual “we know this…no, that’s wrong, now it’s this. We’re going to do this…no, we’re going to do that. It’s all their fault, no, it’s all your fault. Open everything, keep everything closed. They’re doing it all wrong, we’re doing it all wrong, you’re doing it all wrong.” Blah, blah, blah. This makes us all tired and crabby. It all reaches a peak now and along with all that comes meaningful things to say, such as “I love you. I care. How can I help? What do you need?” Those are the words that we need now, not all the rest. We are, however, free to listen to whatever makes our heads happy, but this is a good time to use discernment about our potential audience because everyone’s mentally worn out. The wise will choose their words carefully as well as the recipients of those words. No, “everyone” doesn’t need to hear that.
Friday brings the New Moon in Gemini, and hopefully we will have clear skies for stargazing! Have a fire with friends, using the physical distance thing, tell stories and share some cheer under the night sky. It’s good for the soul..
Stay healthy and keep looking after each other!

Aries (March 21- April 19): Not a bad week at all, Aries! Plenty of air to feed your fire with the Sun entering Gemini this week, joining Mercury and Venus. We also will have a New Moon in Gemini on Friday, so this is set up to be a week of a lot of blabbing! Communication flies, your mind is into overtime and you may have trouble sleeping for all the thinking you’re doing. This isn’t all doing to quarantine madness, though. You have plans and you’re starting to hatch some ideas adapted to the new normal we find ourselves in. You’re the Initiator, the one that pushes your way to the front in trying new things and showing the way. We can really use those talents of yours now! Some initial attempts may fail due to Neptune’s alignment with the Gemini planets but that will only give you a chance to perfect your ideas. Go for it!
Taurus (April 20 – May 20): When you’re not thinking about comfort food, you’re thinking about money. This week it’s about money with the Sun moving into Gemini and joining your Ruler Venus and Mercury there. We also have a New Moon in Gemini on Friday. That’s a lot of energy in one sign, so your sector of Finances is very active now. What may be casting a shadow is Neptune in your sector of Friends/Goals; if a goal fell through or a dream crashed, you may have been left in the lurch financially with nowhere to turn in terms of something to fall back on. This is a scary situation to be in, especially now. Use your connections to glean information, network and get solutions. Give something new a try, even if you don’t have the confidence; confidence isn’t everything, but willingness is! One step at a time, Little Bull! You can do this!
Gemini (May 21- June 20): The Sun enters your sign this week and bolsters your Ruler Mercury already in your sign. You’re at your most Gemini now and it’s your turn to shine! You even get a New Moon on Friday! There is a lot of chatter all over the place and plenty to choose from to engage in, so take your pick and go for it or just make some popcorn, sit back and enjoy the show. Better yet, write! You can be very good on paper because it organizes your thoughts in a way speaking doesn’t. If you have something to offer, put it out there in a letter to the editor, a blog, a magazine or another platform that has a wide readership. If you’re a writer, this period could be a lucky break for you. Same for you Gemini speakers and musicians, get seen! Granted, you’re likely not getting any sleep from brain overload, but there’s a pill for that. Keep your nerves steady.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22): There’s lot you miss right about now, no two ways about it. This week the Sun enters Gemini, joining Venus and Mercury, and this activates your sector of Endings/New Beginnings and sees you yearning for the good old days of only two months ago. Friday night’s New Moon will also occur in Gemini and this will help you make some new rituals around this new normal we find ourselves in. Go ahead and indulge in tears and complaining, but don’t make a lifestyle out of it because no one will want to talk to you anymore. While you long for companionship and that sense of cohesiveness that physical closeness brings, for now you (and everyone else) will just have to find a way to cope without it. It’s hard, yes. Be brave, Moon Child. You illuminate the darkness, don’t forget that!
Leo (July 23 – August 22): You may find yourself restless and unable to relax due to a lot of energy in Gemini (Venus, Mercury and now the Sun and New Moon on Friday). Gemini is a mentally active sign that never stops thinking and it governs your sector of Friends/Goals. Contained within this sector is a rather dark area called “Hidden Enemies.” Those are the people that aren’t good for you. You know, the energy vampires, the inconsiderate ones, the takers, the people that leave you drained after an encounter. Yeah, they’re around too right now. Time to do a bit of weeding, Proud One! These days of being so limited in movement and what we can do to blow off steam and move our bodies around to get rid of stress, we have to ration our energy carefully. You’re the only one that has control over that. There’s no sign of this new lifestyle letting up, so we have to adapt as best we can and wrap our heads around it.
Virgo (August 23 – September 21): Your sector of Social Life/Career is active now with Mercury, Venus and now the Sun occupying Gemini. We also have the New Moon in that sign on Friday. With Neptune in your sector of Relationships aligning with some of these planets in a stressful fashion, it could be that your issues with your partner is keeping you from spending time (in whatever appropriately distanced manner) with other people if you two are together 24/7 now. This could create a real strain for you and you need a break from the monotony. If you’re single, it could be that your attempts at even a yard gathering are dashed by weather, other people’s schedules with their families/gardens/fears of leaving their own yards. Don’t take these things personally. Appreciate the ones that show up and forgive those who just can’t.
Libra (September 22 – October 23): Several planets in Gemini fire up your mind with ideas for furthering your education, spiritual pursuits or plans for travel once the pandemic has eased off. You long for a different vista now, but it’s going to have to be in your own environs; the only travel possible is virtual. It might not be a bad idea to get your hands on an Oculus or some such virtual reality device so that you can get a realistic idea of what you want to experience in reality when you finally get to go. If you’re a musician or artist, you’re hopefully busy creating or playing pieces from a time period representing happiness and lightness of spirit; the arts are important now and your talents are needed! All in all this is a good week for you to put your creative energy to work.
Scorpio (October 24- November 22): Several planets in Gemini and a Gemini New Moon on Friday create a lot more chatter all over the place, which you tune out just because. What falls out of the chatter is what you’re after, and your Sherlock Holmes magnifying glass will get to the heart of the matter in good order. Neptune in Pisces broadens your scope and gives you a wider range to search for your nuggets of truth across the wreckage of misinformation scattered across the landscape. This influence also encourages you to read more now, so your pile of books is being dealt with and you’re able to take yourself away into whatever realm suits your fancy; there is always a purpose to it, though because you never do anything for nothing! Spend the week keeping the volume down and staying focused on what’s immediately around you.
Sagittarius (November 23 – December 20): As the Sun enters Gemini this week, joining Mercury and Venus, your sector of Relationships is all fired up. Neptune in your sector of Home is in an energetic alignment with the trio and this could indicate some dissatisfaction with your current domestic situation; not unusual given the current circumstances of having to spend time 24/7 with each other if you’re not used to it. Any weak points are showing up and calling for a reassessment. If you’re single, you may be tired of being alone and wishing you had someone to quarantine with. As always, the grass is always greener…the New Moon in Gemini on Friday will bring clarity to what’s going wrong or right and help get a grip on what to do. Otherwise, there is still a lot of emphasis on your home and you’re not the most domestic member of the zodiac but now you’re forced to take an interest. Not bad, all in all. Carry on!
Capricorn (December 21 – January 20): This week, communication becomes even more highlighted due to the Sun entering chatty Gemini, joining Venus and Mercury. We also have the New Moon in Gemini on Friday. Some of these planets are at odds with Neptune in Pisces so your sector of Shared Assets/Intimacy may be bogged down by you overthinking things and looking at details that are greatly amplified. Chalk it up to the times and stresses of massive uncertainty. You are one of the signs that is very sensitive to changes with no predicted outcome since you want a higher view with solutions on the horizon. There are none available now and that makes you really uncomfortable. Focus on one foot in front of the other and be sure your footing is secure in the moment, that’s all you can do. You’ll just have to be okay with it. Not a comfortable way, I know, but for now it’s the only way.
Aquarius (January 21 - February 20): The Sun joins Venus and Mercury in your companion air sign Gemini this week, and with all that mental activity, sleep will be hard to come by! You have a busy mind anyway but now it’s even busier as you try to come up with creative ways to deal with a chaotic present and an unpredictable future. Working with less is difficult but you always find a way to stretch resources into more than they are designed to be used because you invent new uses for things. You’re the innovator! You have many irons in the fire now to keep you from worrying, which is good. Just don’t let yourself get too run down. Some of your ideas may be dashed due to financial concerns, but knowing you, you’ll scale them down to size and do them anyway. Keep the faith!
Pisces (February 21 – March 20): With the Sun entering Gemini, joining Mercury and Venus, your mental chatter is starting to make you crazy…those thoughts in your head would have you going in directions that don’t even exist if they could get away with it, so filter out the riffraff and only pay attention to the important ones. I know, they all think they’re important. If the weather is nice, lay in the grass and watch the clouds go by, like your thoughts. They eventually dissipate with the warmth of the sun. The warmth of your spirit will dissipate the chatty, annoying thoughts if you appeal to your Ruler Neptune in your sign, whose silent depths can act like a black hole and obliterate what isn’t necessary. Make up stories in your head involving dragons, elves, little people and other fantastical creatures. How would they deal with times like this?
