It’s a busy week ahead as the planets move forward in their orbits, three of them changing signs. On Wednesday assertive Mars charges into your ninth house of adventure for the first time in two years. This is a nice placement considering that the Sun is anchored in your ultra-efficient sixth house, telling you to get the job done. Now that Mars is in this part of the sky you can relax a little and plan vacations and some down time with your family and friends.
But this is also the house of the higher mind, the place where we want to be stimulated and grow. As a result, you may be considering taking a night class or a licensing exam. Maybe you pick up books about philosophy or metaphysics. Learning Chinese could be on the agenda. You might even start dating someone from another culture.
And speaking of love, Mercury enters your oh-so-serious house of commitment on Saturday, so chances are that singles will be looking for a candidate with long term potential. Sober Saturn has been in this part of your chart for over a year and still has a year to go. If there’s one sign of the zodiac that’s going to get involved in a marriage or a more mature relationship, it’s you, Gemini.
But stable doesn’t mean boring. Lovely Venus glides into your eighth house of sexuality the day before, on Friday. Oohh la la! It’s time to get in touch with the steamier, sultry side of yo’ bad self. Hmmm, let’s do a little planetary analysis here. On Wednesday, lusty Mars enters your house of adventure….on Friday sexpot Venus enters the house of libido and intimacy…and then on Saturday Mercury enters the house of commitment. Well, my guess is that you’re about to enter a highly steamy phase with someone who will keep you interested for a long time.
Earlier in the week is a good time to talk to decision makers, especially if they can help your career or work flow. You may not want to leave your current job, but need to get an assistant to help you, for example. Or you’ve heard about a new software program that will help make your job go more smoothly and decide to mention it to the boss. Self-employed Geminis would do well to find a mentor to guide them. Monday is the time to make these moves with a positive Sun-Pluto sextile.
