GeminiMay 21 - June 20
Welcome to February, skymates! This is the last full month where Saturn, the Planet of Challenge and Responsibility, will be in the sign of Aquarius. On March 7, Saturn enters Pisces, where it’ll remain until 2025. This month is astrologically and spiritually significant. For you, Gemini, Saturn’s final stretch in Aquarius is teaching you how to stretch yourself even further out of your comfort zone and let your dreams come true with ease. Mars is also spending its final full month in your sign this February, and the combination of Mars in Gemini and the Sun in Aquarius is filling your mind with so many out-of-this-world visions for the future. Your job is to ground yourself in order to turn those visions into tangible realities. You got this! Stay focused.

Key Themes: Self-expression and communication, planning practically to ground and realize dreams, sharing your personal journey
Gemini, you know those chapters in your life that you look back on as being gamechangers? February has that potential for you. This month begins with a light and powerful Full Moon in Leo, which activates your sector of communication. Because the Leo archetype is about self-expression and authenticity, you’re being invited into a space of sharing. This might mean calling up a friend, or posting something honest and from the heart on social media. Your sign rules communication so you’ll likely be feeling more embodied and confident than you have in a little while.
The good vibes continue on Feb 7th, with a harmonious connection between Jupiter and the Lunar North Node. This cosmic signature could look like a sudden idea, burst of momentum or change of circumstance – all in the direction of your personal expansion. Stay adaptable and get ready to act at a moment’s notice. If you have any ideas that begin to arise around now, write them down and let them ruminate in your mind and subconscious. With the next New Moon, you’ll be provided with an opportunity to plant seeds.
Speaking of seeds… February 18th brings Pisces season, and with it an activation of your sector of career and finance. The combination of practicality and dreaming can be the perfect recipe for your next growth spurt Gemini. You’ll be able to use the remainder of the month (particularly around the Pisces New Moon on Feb 20th) to begin practically planning your way to the life of your dreams.
February 16th sees asteroid Pallas Athena move into the watery sign of Cancer. Because Pallas carries a creative, feminine energy – this will be a time to pay attention and honor your intuitive, emotional and creative impulses. You may feel the desire to slow it down, spend more time alone, and in a state of nurturance. Yin, as opposed to Yang.
If this is the case, trust that. Often our ‘progress’ comes from a state of receptivity and surrender, rather than a continuous powering through.
Venus entering Aries on Feb 20th will re-emphasize the month’s theme of sharing with others. Here, the planet of love and beauty is activating your sector of networking. When it comes to making your goals happen, you might just notice the incredible momentum that can arise from the support of the community.
Your ruler Mercury (planet of communication), will be in Aquarius from Feb 11th – and this further supports the idea of finding beings to vibe with. Maybe this means expressing your vulnerability, ambitions and ideas with a good friend. Tip: sometimes when we’re too close to a problem (especially if it’s our own), we can’t see all the solutions – but another can. This month, the universe is inviting you into remembrance: you don’t have to do it alone.
Ruling Planet: Mercury, the Planet of Communication
Where You’ll Find Them: Launching a podcast, couch-surfing around the world, or learning how to code
What They Avoid: Overly emotional situations, routines, clingy people
Gemini is the third sign of the zodiac — the sign of the Twins. When you’re talking about a Gemini, you’re in essence talking about two (or more) people, merged in one. Gemini is all about duality and multiplicity, which is why they’re like a chameleon, always changing. This can be both frustrating and fascinating to outsiders, but to Gemini, it’s all they’ve ever known. It’s who they are. Gemini is ruled by Mercury, making them social butterflies and eternally curious students who view the world as their classroom. Gemini loves to read, talk, write and communicate in as many ways as possible, with a huge variety of people and cultures. Not all Geminis are outspoken, but they all have a constant stream of thoughts running through their minds.
For that reason, Gemini can be extremely restless, emotionally, intellectually and physically. It’s important for Gemini to have a creative and physical outlet for their outpour of thoughts and ideas. It can be a challenge for Gemini to stick to one profession or job — they tend to have more than one job at once or switch into new jobs pretty frequently. That’s because Gemini is the jack-of-all-trades who tends to be good at everything they try. Gemini’s mission is to stick with something long enough to be better than just “good” at it. Their free-spirited nature can make them very hard to tie down, and Geminis seek freedom and space to breathe and create above all else.
As friends, Gemini is the type of person who will introduce you to new ways of life and take you to places you’ve never been before. Gemini is very open to meeting new people, and this can sometimes make them appear to be superficial or two-faced because they flitter like a butterfly from one social group to another. But for Gemini, variety is the spice of life, and boredom is their ultimate fear. Still, even if Gemini is quite popular, they still can be selective when it comes to whom they view as their best friends. There is an introspective and introverted side to Gemini that they fiercely protect.
Friendship is often Geminis strongest suit, so when it comes to romance and relationships, it takes more effort on their end. That’s because Geminis aren’t naturally comfortable with vulnerability, emotions or sensitivity. Geminis can be known for being the flirts of the zodiac, playing the field when they’re single (and sometimes even when coupled), and shying away from commitment. But keep in mind that Gemini is the sign of The Twins, meaning that there’s another side to them that’s not frequently talked about by astrologers. Deep down, Gemini seeks to meet their twin flame and soulmate — their other half. That’s why Geminis may flutter around during the earlier parts of their dating life. But once a Gemini falls in love, they do have the ability to remain committed, as long as they don’t feel like they’re being played or taken for granted. With Gemini you never know for sure what you’re going to get, but it’s all part of their charm.
