The clever Gemini moon wants to help you manage multiple endeavors at once. Planning and list making will keep you from getting overwhelmed, but not at first. Initially you may feel even more overwhelmed than you did before you got it all down on paper, but after some thinking, sorting and planning, you’ll see your way to the Promised Land.
ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’ll get realistic about whether or not your efforts are bringing you the desired results. Usually, there is more gray area to consider – but not now. It’s either working or it’s not.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Just because things wind up next to each other doesn’t mean they should be compared. It may take a great deal of restraint not to make comparisons, and if you can pass this test, you are superhuman.
GEMINI (May 21-June 21). There are definitely perks to being you. For one, you don’t care too much about what people think right now, and that’s part of what makes you so funny. You’ll enjoy making people smile.
CANCER (June 22-July 22). Style risks are part of the fun, and don’t be afraid to take this beyond your previous limits. Hair grows back, and you can always change your clothes, so experiment. What do you have to lose?
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Reach out to the people you haven’t had a chance to talk to. You’ve all changed in interesting and positive ways. It’s time to share those changes so you can get back in synch.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Everything has a context. That’s why so many private moments that were funny, exciting and generally awesome wind up being less so when you try to explain them to someone who wasn’t there.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). The most powerful person isn’t the one who’s talking nonstop. It’s the one to whom others are talking. When people feel compelled to share with you, you can consider it a sign of respect.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’ll see your town the way a tourist sees it: with great curiosity and a desire to taste the most interesting offerings before you move along to the next place.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). It’s better to celebrate a flaw than to conceal it. Once you bring attention to the thing you were trying to hide, it no longer can be called a flaw. It transforms into an item of interest.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Even though you recognize that the thing you want is merely a symbol of success and not success itself, you still want it. Symbols are powerful, too.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). What you say has a very real power to expand, guide and direct the emotional flow around you. Choose your words carefully and your tone even more carefully.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Unpredicted good fortune will befall you. You’ll be rethinking your definition of advantages and disadvantages when what you thought was a disadvantage actually works in your favor.
TODAY’S BIRTHDAY. Your willingness to fail is what leads to a July success of which you (and your loved ones) will be extremely proud. Seize the chance to perform as much as possible so you can work out the kinks. A mutually beneficial business relationship leads to an August windfall. November shows you traveling with a smile. Aquarius and Pisces people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 30, 21, 11, 17 and 42.
VENUS IN GEMINI: When Venus slips into Gemini, she’s tempted to turn romance into a game. So how do you know you’re playing fair at the game of love? Here are a few guidelines for this Venus-in-Gemini transit:
• If you’re going to play hard-to-get, let yourself be “gotten” when your suitor has successfully passed your test. If you’re not playing hard-to-get but actually are not interested, make that clear, too. Let your actions tell that you’re impossible to get if that’s the way you really feel. It’s better to be upfront than to promote false hope by being wishy-washy or too nice.
• Friendship first. Gemini in Venus lightens up our expectations of love. During this time, connecting and communicating on the little things that happen over the course of a day will be far more satisfying than falling into a passionate, soul-wrenching affair. Romantic partners who put friendship first have the best chance.
Furthermore, the worst thing you could do during this transit is pursue a romance that would infringe on your friendship code – for instance, by flirting with a friend’s partner or dating his or her ex!
