ISLAND ASTROLOGER: THE GEMINI PARTY IS TURNING UP

We are almost halfway through Gemini season, the time of year when socializing, information gathering and mental fluctuations are highlighted by the sun’s path through the Zodiac. During the first half of this year’s Gemini season, Mercury, Gemini’s ruling planet, has been retrograde, seemingly moving backward in the sky. This has given the past few weeks an ambience of personal reflection and review amid the highly social surroundings. However, Mercury is stationing direct (moving forward) in the wee hours of Friday morning, so expect the party to ramp up.

Here are your Mercury stationing direct horoscopes for the week. Read for your rising and sun signs.

Gemini
May 21 – June 21

Happy birthday Gemini. As our sun shines its light on you and brings you into the center of our collective attention, you may actually be feeling a little bit isolated from the group. Pay attention to the thoughts that arise during this experience of being alone among friends, because in the coming weeks, they will serve you well in your own self-confidence. Your supportive network is also being ignited, so accept the help from those with the means to help you.

Cancer
June 22 – July 22

You may be reconsidering who is in your corner or reevaluating whom you can rely on for support. The people who fill this role in your life are changing all the time, so it is good to reflect on your needs and their capacities. Soon, your thoughts will turn to your own solitude. Prepare to be a reclusive thinker until the beginning of July. Simultaneously, your career is firing on all cylinders, so go with it.

Leo
July 23 – Aug. 22

You are probably rethinking your work, particularly how it is related to our collective future. Is your job helpful or harmful to the world we live in? As you wrestle with this, soon you will start to consider what your hopes and dreams are and who will help you achieve them. You’re also probably feeling the urge to travel – so either jump into the spontaneous adventure or find a book to take you elsewhere.

Virgo
Aug. 23 – Sept. 22

Are you trying to see what’s beyond the horizon or around the river bend? Maybe you’re considering a new path of study because you know there is more out there to learn and discover. Reflect on what you seek to know because in the coming month your mind will turn to your career and public reputation. Your current speculations will become clearer as you hone in  on the work you are here to accomplish.

Libra
Sept. 23 – Oct. 23

Are you reconsidering a debt you owe or an investment you’ve made with someone else? However you decide to deal with this situation of shared finances or mutual ownership, once you tie up your loose ends, your mind will turn to foreign travel. Managing collective baggage can be a drag, so go with your thoughts when it comes to vacay!

Scorpio
Oct. 24 – Nov. 21

You may be reconsidering love and partnership. If you’re in a relationship, you may be questioning whether they are the one. If you are single, you may be thinking about changing that status with a certain someone. At any rate, love is on the brain. Soon, your attention will turn to matters of shared responsibility. How do you manage resources that are not yours entirely but that you are entrusted to care for?

Sagittarius
Nov. 22 – Dec. 21

Work, work, work. You are probably reflecting on the monotony of the constant need to be getting things done – or you might be reconsidering your regular routines like exercise and household maintenance. Make some changes to get into a better flow because there is always stuff you gotta do. Soon, your thoughts will turn to love and partnership, so get your life patterns figured out so you can make space for romance.

Capricorn
Dec. 22 – Jan. 19

How do you get your signature creative spark out into the world? You know, that unique part of you that no one else can do. It is the perfect time to rethink what your creative outlet is and how you go about showcasing your artistic impulse for the rest of us to experience. After you determine your originality, your mind will turn to the work you need to do to get it done. First inspiration, then perspiration.

Aquarius
Jan. 20 – Feb. 18

Home is where the mind is, or something like that. Right now you are having some deep reflections about home and family – the parts of your life that serve as the roots from which all other parts of you grow outward. Where is home for you and who is home for you? As you get clearer on this part of your life, your mind will turn toward your own individuality and passions. Get clear on your origins so your originality can take flight.

Pisces
Feb. 19 – March 20

Who are your siblings, your mischievous counterparts, your partners-in-crime? It is the perfect time to identify these people and focus on how you communicate with them. Let them know how meaningful they are to you. Getting clear on your life-siblings will help orient you to what is truly important. Soon, you will start to think about what makes you feel at home and what family means.

Aries
March 21 – April 19

It is a good time to reconsider how your are managing your finances or your material possessions. Is there a better way to keep track of what you own so you can administer your life better? It is also a great time to put yourself into high gear – fire up your health and wellness plan, change your hair, get some new clothes. Feel yourself. There is some serious energy in your house of self, so take advantage of it and let loose.

Taurus
April 20 – May 20

You may be rethinking some aspects of who you are. Are your choices resonant with how you see yourself? Are you acting out of your personal ideals or are you following the herd? Now is the perfect time to get clear on how you think through your sense of self because soon you will be turning your mind toward practical and financial matters. In order to make good practical and material decisions, you need to know what life you are supporting.
