Gemini (May 20-June 21) — I started an interesting discussion on Facebook the other day by writing, “The truth is not a matter of opinion.” A good few people cocked their hip and said some form of, “Yes it is!” The folly of this is that it proposes that if someone thinks something, then it must be true — which seems to be the prevailing philosophy here in the digital age. Along those lines were arguments such as, “Truth is a matter of viewpoint,” and one superior scholar asking, “How do we know what is a fact?” All of this reveals the need for some objective standards: that is to say, established values against which we might make a comparison between methods, approaches and data sets. And I am sure that much of the problem is either people are too lazy to find out what is actually meaningful, or are granting themselves a pass to tell and believe lies. In any case, you must have a way that you determine what is true for you, and for anyone else subject to your judgment. Saturn in your fellow air sign Aquarius is setting a high standard for honesty and honesty with yourself. You will benefit from a set of basic questions you ask yourself, and must answer, before you decide some bit of information is valid. Indeed, valid is a much better concept than truth, in that it implies truth for a stated purpose. But you must test your ideas, and subject yourself to constant review. It’s critical that you be able to argue several sides of any issue, and know when you’re dealing with incomplete or blatantly inaccurate information. In your model of the universe, it’s crucial to make room for the fact that powerful people lie, and do so aggressively, with impunity. Whether you like that or not is irrelevant.

Planet Waves Monthly Horoscope for April 2021 | Go To All Signs
by Eric Francis Coppolino

Gemini (May 20-June 21) — There are enormous social pressures being brought to bear on every single person in society. The heat is on you, with many planets (and your ruling planet Mercury) moving through Aries, your 11th house of groups and collective influence. You could be easily swallowed by this and not even know it. So the first thing I suggest you do is stop when you find yourself doing the same thing as everyone else. Life is not a game of Follow the Leader. It is not a game of Simple Simon. It is not a game of Do What You’re Told, Or Else. But that is how life is being played right now, with people assuming they know what is best for others because it’s best for “the collective.” You may remember a time when TV commercials were so bold as to say, “Everybody’s doing it! Don’t feel left out! Don’t be the odd one! Don’t be left behind! Don’t seem weird!” Well, all of society has morphed into this now, and we will not be the better for it. You will not be the better for it. Yet to do what is right for you under these conditions demands courage. By that, I mean fortitude. I might mean all the strength that you have. I mean having fucking guts. The time to stop and ask questions is when you find yourself wanting to do anything — anything at all — that the people around you are doing. There is raw, crude psychology that makes humans feel like that is the right thing, the only thing, the only responsible thing, or whatever form the idea takes. Usually that “right thing” is not so right. Usually there is some wave machine, or fog machine, driving the whole mess forward. Be strong. Stand apart. Ask questions till you get real answers. Know when you don’t know.

Gemini

Gemini (May 20-June 21) — Mars will be in your birth sign all month. That may lead you to wonder why it’s worth bothering to go after what you want in life when it’s fraught with so many challenges and often, disappointments. However, the mission and purpose of Mars is about discovering what you want and proving it to yourself, rather than immediate fulfillment. You need to sort through what you don’t value and what you don’t truly desire and then see what you’re left with. This will involve confidence building and learning how to work your way through various forms of inner and outer resistance. Along the way, you’ll have opportunities to connect with people who support you, some in the form of offering teaching and mentorship. But ultimately this is your journey and your quest. It’s easy to say you want something, or to accomplish something. It’s another thing to apply your desire and to persist in the face of challenges. And when you go for what you want, it’s almost inevitable that you will face the basic conditions of existence on the physical plane. Don’t push this too hard. What you need is slow, steady persistence. You are not in a position to accomplish anything especially quickly. However, if you’re paying attention, you will slowly gain clarity around your goals and what you must do to make them real. Be careful about competing with yourself, working against your goals, or splitting your intentions. The thing you have to do is something of the ultimate karma for a Gemini, which is focus your whole self on the objective you want to attain. And this may not be about one thing only, as we all are living multiple lives right now; it’s a set of bylaws that you will need to apply to anything you do.

Planet Waves Monthly Horoscope for February 2021
by Eric Francis Coppolino

Gemini

Gemini (May 20-June 21) — Lately it seems like what we think of as existence is on a daily basis being corralled onto the internet. Whether we’re talking about school (from kindergarten to post-graduate), social life, associating with colleagues, or any form of art, this is all rapidly being reduced to computer code. People think this gives them more freedom and opens up their potential, making all kinds of new things available. That is true to a point, though not everything can be reduced to data. In effect, the internet, by which I mean the digital sphere, is a hallucination. Marshall McLuhan said way back in the 1960s that computers were LSD for the businessman. And now we are all caught in the matrix or the digital dream. I suggest you figure out where you are, and then find your way back to Earth. Do whatever you can do in the physical world. Get among others and remind yourself what eye contact and facial expressions are about. Notice how you feel when you’re in your body. To what extent is your physical existence an object of fear, and to what extent is your body a means of self-expression? How do you feel when you’re around other people? Are you afraid of them, or do you tend to trust them? Mercury retrograde in Aquarius for the next few weeks will be urging you to take part in the world of people, even if not so many are interested. Yet there’s something more relevant: what is your long-term plan? Are you signed up to go along with the new normal, or are you interested in creating the social and creative life that you want? Many obstacles are now out of the way. You have ideas. You have much more freedom than you may imagine.


Planet Waves Weekly Horoscope #260 for January 19, 2021

Gemini

Gemini (May 20-June 21) — Humanity is your religion. It is your faith, it’s your hope, and it’s your best guess about the whole purpose of the cosmos. There are those who argue that the human experience is insignificant in the cosmic realm, merely based on the size and scale of the universe. Yet that is not a valid argument. It is not an actual assessment. We do not know the purpose of the human experience, endeavor or experiment — really, it’s all three. Most people do not think of it consciously, as this life is all they know or have ever imagined. Religion (the closest most people get to cosmology) is all centered around the Earth as the only place that exists. Then spirituality chimes in with all kinds of speculation. You, however, have the ability and the calling to ground your entire cosmology in the human experience. And now this is stronger than ever. No matter what the purpose of the experiment on this planet, whether it is accidental or part of some divine plan, all we have is one another. And that is quite enough.


Planet Waves Weekly Horoscope #259 for January 11, 2021
by Eric Francis Coppolino

Gemini

Gemini (May 20-June 21) — It will help if you focus on the world within yourself as much as you do on the world around you. I say this knowing that the concept of an inner life is nearly nonexistent now. It has been slowly eliminated by years upon years of taking pictures of things so we can remember them; of texting people and thinking we are with them; and of living in a hypnotic haze of images and reflections we think of as ourselves. To find your way back into yourself calls for a strategy, a plan and a method. Odd though it may seem, one thing that will help is spending time face to face with people, sharing your reality in words, with eye contact, and being with others who do the same. Part of seeing inwardly involves what you choose to use as your mirror. The electronic realm will deceive you; the human realm is less likely to do so, because of one thing: the element of feeling. Feeling is inner sensation. It is poignant and complex, rather than sleek, simple and easy to delete.


Planet Waves Weekly Horoscope #258 for January 7, 2021
by Eric Francis Coppolino

Gemini

Gemini (May 20-June 21) — If you feel like you’re in a burning building, consider that it’s in your mind. It’s true that the world seems to be spinning off of its axis, though the real pressure you are feeling is internal. If you treat it that way, it will make much more sense to you, including your fear level, and your urge to react in some unusual way. Take it easy on yourself, and focus your awareness inward. It may not be easy to be with your thoughts and feelings, though that will be the most efficient way through. Admit and acknowledge every last thing you experience mentally or emotionally, no matter how weird or unseemly. Do not be offended by yourself. Do that Buddhist thing and watch your thoughts go by like a movie and see if you can allow your inner observer to do its work. Mercury entering Aquarius on Friday will provide an outlet for your energy, and I suggest you take advantage of it. Vent your energy rather directing it at yourself.

Gemini

Gemini (May 20-June 21) — Nearly everything that counts is a matter of faith. To be happy, to be sane, to be productive, your faith must be in humanity. You don’t need fancy theology or notions of the divine. You don’t need ornate religions or complex hierarchies of thought. You need people: to love them and be loved by them; and to cultivate mutual respect. Though you may have been aware of this in the past, it’s now coming in at full strength. The problem with people is how casually they disappoint one another. This often gets tossed off as ‘flaky’, though what happens is that gradually, humans erode one another’s faith in humanity. They make it difficult to trust the next person, or to hold themselves as trustworthy in new relationships. Your faith in humanity begins with yourself. You are the proof within your own life that it’s possible for someone to be sincere. This involves many facets of relating to yourself and to others, including a modicum of consistency. It’s tempting to wake up every day and be a different person. It’s also tempting to think you’re stuck in who you are and cannot change, and that’s just the way that it is. These states of being will all leave you wanting for, well, for everything. Thankfully, Jupiter and Saturn have just entered your fellow air sign Aquarius, which will help you stabilize yourself. This, in turn, will have many cascading benefits, including helping to steady your view of the road of life that you’re traveling on. Your vision of the future has been obscured by the complications of the past, which at times have been an obsession for you. There is no future without the present. The past does not lead you anywhere. But you can go anywhere from here and now, as long as you are here and now.
