And what is life?
An hour glass on the run
A mist retreating from the morning sun
A busy, bustling still repeated dream
It's length? A minutes pause
A moments thought
And happiness? A bubble on the stream
That in the act of seizing turns to naught
This month begins with your ruler Mercury moving on the 2nd, this is the part of your horoscope concerning secrets. It joins up with the sun, Venus and also Mars. Now this can lead to some deep psychological emphasis.
This can make you want to shut down out of sheer exhaustion and you may ask yourself, " Can I keep this up? " Well you cannot!
Part of the reason for this is because Saturn who has who has a very strict and fierce influence, are coming across the heavens on the other side in Scorpio, and are then going to be coming back across the heavens to connect with both Mars and Mercury and I must say this can leave you utterly exhausted and not knowing why.
The depletion of your energy is from Saturn, as I said it really is the planet of restriction, it's like it's shouting " How can you have any pudding if you don't eat your meat! ", nah, sorry I've been listening to alot of pink Floyd lately...You get the idea.
It can also be a red flag to slow down even more especially if you have been burning the candle at both ends. This can come from hanging around people that you don't fully understand or trust, or from working on something that you have possibly put a bit too much into and are not getting anything in return.
Perhaps its time to sit back and take a good look at yourself and maybe take a more holistic approach to your self care. Don't look at your emotional and mental health as secondary, they really must come first even though we all know being physically healthy is paramount and good for uplifting a person, we also know that there are some real psychos in great physical shape! So a word of advice is to put your mental health in check.
Now there is a brief cameo by Venus the planet of love, in the middle of the month, the transit with Mercury is brief but looks to be short and very sweet so after you do your soul searching, you should have a chance to have some fun and let your hair down and the insecurities should be replaced by lots of warm and fuzzy moments.
Lastly, Pluto that yellow bastard planet that has been bamboozling is all, comes back into play and is once again squared with Uranus. The major effects of this started in June of last year and it went on for 5 months. Now that's the exact months, the actual influence has been around for some of this year, but we have a repeat of the same this year, and when the alignment is this precise it tends to cause chaos in our lives.
For you this suggests that when it comes to your career or work, whatever it is your involved with, you may have to give up the dream of total independence for now. There are commitments and obligations that you have made that others that they may ruthlessly hold you to.
This is just a very helter skelter time for you, but promises to be a great learning time and a time to pretty much be happy with what you have to put it in the simplest of terms. You are simply in no position at this time to set all the terms and conditions of your life. I think why this is hard for Gemini's is because you do have some brilliant ideas, but the patience and hard work is what is needed to make dreams come true.
Jupiter will give you a chance to shine the last few days of the month and set the stage for the next 6 months. Gemini, what can I say, Capricorns are having the same struggles, so I am right there with you, Just remember that your almost famous, your medium gorgeous, and gosh darn it, Xana loves you!
Yours Truly, Sancho
