Are you ready to make some new friends? Of course you are! Don’t overthink the process of putting yourself out there, Gemini. This year is giving you the opportunity to expand your network; all you must do is be willing to communicate. Since your planetary ruler is Mercury, that should be no problem for you. The key to this year is to not overextend yourself. You are human, flesh and bones, sweat and tears, feelings and emotions.
You must respect yourself by recognizing when to stop and rest to avoid burnout. Join virtual groups, connect with religious, activist, or spiritual communities, stay in touch with friends—these are practical strategies to connect with others that will prove beneficial as the year progresses. In order to stay focused, it will be extremely helpful to keep your goals in mind. As we age it can be harder to let ourselves dream. Life, responsibilities, and mortality have a way of clouding our imagination.
What are small goals that you would like to accomplish within one year? The act of manifesting is a long process, however, that does not mean it’s not possible. Confidence will open doors and opportunities will fall on your lap when you carry yourself with a high sense of self-esteem.

The Sun provides life force, powers our inner light and will. As it shines through a unique zodiacal sign each month, we reflect, express, and learn from its unique flavor.
We resonate lifelong with the imprint of our birthdate's Sun sign; it does not define us but provides the skeleton or scaffold that frames and supports the rest of the chart.
you can talk to anybody; your adaptability, nervous energy, mental sparkle, ingenuity, and sense of humor get the word out and help us understand one another.
Communication, networking, curiosity, quick witted. We connect with like minds and build a network of understanding.
They crave stimulation in different forms be that lots of color, social interactions or the wild landscapes that live within the depths of novels.
A Gemini Sun can come across as strong willed, deeply passionate and extremely versatile. They move with hurricane force winds when they wish!
By Day: The Moon's sign sets the emotional tone. Those born under: Our natal Moon sign describes what makes us feel at home, how we process emotion, and how we handle our daily life.
Talk it all out now; people are ready to hear other perspectives and change their minds. Just don't ask for them to concentrate too long on any one thing, or go into great depth. The mood is nervy, talkative, humorous, alert, but scattered.
Moon in Gemini speeds our thoughts and nerves. It's time to weave words: talk listen, laugh, sing and write. Network, negotiate, rearrange; juggle possibilities; just don't get spread too thin.
Can talk with anyone they meet. They value diversity, curiosity, and can talk about deep subjects with a light touch. As natural translators, they can build bridges and network. Their challenge is to hold still, explore solitude and dive deep.
A Gemini moon's emotion can shift directions quickly in the breeze.
What is a rising sign you ask? The rising sign or ascendant is the sign that was present on the horizon at the time of your birth. It sits similarly on your birth chart on this horizon line, or equatorial line in your chart on the left or east side of your chart.
Do calculate your rising sign, you'll need to know the exact time of your birth, once you know along with your geographic location, you can visit many sites and receive a free birth chart, here is one of our staff favorites.
Your sun sign represents your core personality, and the qualities of our outward shining self. Your moon sign reflects qualities of your inner core self, or emotional self.
Rising sign is your outlook on the world and first impression you give to others.
Rising sign also dictates where the Astrological Houses lay within your chart.
The Houses (twelve pie shaped sections) of our personal birth chart attend to all areas of our life. Each house represents a basic facet of human experience from birth to death. The placement of each house in your natal chart is dependent on your rising sign
Gemini Rising and quick to act and very witty. They look at the world analytically and love communicating and networking. They fly through their world like a tornado, with ever shifting winds.
Gemini ascendants are versatile and adaptable, though may struggle to stay on one task before the next adventure calls their attention. They love fluidity and excitement.
Gemini season is often filled with blossoms and pollen. Nature expands outward and germinates everything around it! This time of year often releases emotion's we planted deep in ourselves or dreams take flight.

It’s wonderful to see the effects of the stars and planets mirrored back at us in our daily life. The saying “as above so below” screams out at us to pay attention and notice the small details of Mother Earth.
This glyph represents the number two. In this phase of the zodiac we start to look outside ourselves and interact with the outside world.
While Signs like Aries, Taurus and Cancer represent inner emotions and process, Gemini sweeps it’s gaze out over the land and starts exploring our relationship as individuals in relation to the “other”.
Plants are germinating and pollinating with all their might and insects are buzzing all around. The world is alive and sparkling.
Gemini marks the final season of Spring, as we prepare to move into the hot summer months plants and animals’ mate, court and spread their seeds.
The Gemini time of day is late morning. Our brains and bodies have already awoken from sleep and we’re ready to start moving forward with our day!
This time of day is great for learning and digesting information, something Gemini’s do very well. We step past the cloud of sleep and are not yet fatigued from the day ahead. Our brains are fresh and malleable.
Be purposeful and intentional with the information you surround yourself with during this time of day.
Gemini, as the twins, it only fits that this sign should rule over the hands, arms and lungs. Hands are one of the most efficient modes of communication, we talk with our hands subconsciously most of the time.
In Sign Language, the hands are the sole method of communication along with lip reading and other body language. Gemini is deeply rooted in language and communication—the lungs and hands together create speech and body language.
The lung’s also control our breath, and in turn our mental state. Deep slow breathing calms the mind and sharpens our focus. The lungs themselves even look like the Gemini Glyph.
These planets buzz with expression! The planet in these signs will affect how we communicate and also may experience large swings or duality of emotions.
For example, a person with a Venus in Gemini tends to want dynamic and intellectual love affairs. Though they may be very passionately or affectionate one day, and the next be aloof and distant.
“The Houses (twelve pie shaped sections) of our personal birth chart attend to all areas of our life. Each house represents a basic facet of human experience from birth to death.”
The placement of each house in your natal chart is dependent on your rising sign. A person with an Aries rising has what is called a “natural chart”. A rising sign is the sign ascending on the eastern horizon on the time of your birth, it can be calculated using a rising sign calculator here!
The Third House highlights practical thought and our capacity to explore, learn and share communications. We are curious to understand and delight in the associations we make. Strengthen connections with peers, and team up. (Air)

Mercury is also connected with Virgo, though this archetype gets expressed differently in each sign.
Mercury is "The Thinker," and involves our communication skills: what we say, our words, our voice, and our thoughts, including the “Teacher/Student, Master/Apprentice mode.
Mercury affects how we connect with all the media tools of the day—our computers, phones, and even the postal, publishing and recording systems!
It’s a good thing you are curious about everything. This year much will happen for you in the dark and behind the scenes, and your curiosity will serve you well.
Your body is the road to connection with spirit, and all the ways that you can usually think your way quickly through things will not have nearly as much weight as usual. Notice how your body connects, the wild other realms it leads into. The cost of ignoring it will be higher than usual this year, and not one you want to pay.
You need to find a way to both stretch beyond your usual world and to hold a space that is deeply, privately embodied. This year will push your capacity for real depth, wrapping up a long cycle of intimacy work that will get you familiar with wounding, emotional honesty, and being with what scares us about love.
Make room to be with what doesn’t come through easily via language, but that speaks clearly through the senses. Notice what even your flexible mind might not readily recognize as innovations in how you can live, connect and heal.
The end of the year will bring some extra urgency and pressure to the themes of the year, but take time—rushing will come with consequences. Reach into what resources you deeply, and be willing to learn about many ways and rates of change

As Jupiter and Neptune conjunct in Pisces, exact in April, echoing throughout 2022, they challenge us to use our sensitivity, vision, and imagination to open a visionary portal, while at the same time staying grounded enough to not get lost, to stay present and use this vision wisely.
Gemini: Sort your intuition carefully; practice healthy psychic hygiene. True intuition can take you closer to your life purpose and help you channel healthy personal authority. Magic, logic, and fact checking need to weave together to inspire your work and unfold your path.
From this growth you can create fresh collaborations in 2023.
