Gemini (May 20-June 21) — Few people are not invested in matters of family. In some societies, it’s all that matters; the clan or tribe is supreme. Here in the Western world, it’s usually complications that keep us involved — entanglements, unresolved issues, and history replaying itself endlessly. You might think that sooner or later, everyone reaches their limit — though that’s not true. It takes determination to reach escape velocity. And that is not enough: awareness of the tethers, and the ability to use what you’ve learned from life experience, therapy and spiritual training must all come into service. Yet there is something else as well: sincere determination. It helps if your mojo is not directed at getting out of the past, so much as going someplace fresh. Take advantage of your bold moment, when your sense of adventure is at its highest. Feel your own potential, and allow yourself to be seduced, lured and attracted by what is in reality your own creative power. Any approach in this direction will feel like a blend of exciting and daunting — that’s how you know it’s real. To face the future is daring, the more so because so few people are willing to do such a thing, while many pretend. You can do something different — now.

Gemini (May 20-June 21) — For a while, you must do things for their own sake, rather than for some predictable return. You may find this irritating at times, wondering why you’re the one who has certain tasks while others do not. Once you accept that certain things simply must happen and you’re the one who can do it, you will be a lot happier and some unusual but unexpected opportunities will open up. One of those may be a revived willingness to take on what may seem like thankless tasks in your personal home environment, such as a major cleaning or clearing effort, or a renovation project. In all matters, proceed from a clear work plan. That means approach all matters with an eye for strategy, which starts with an assessment of the situation, time estimates, cost estimates, and most important, a sense of how much energy you have to allocate toward any particular effort. Ask for help when you need it; this is part of why you’ll be creating a clearly elaborated work plan. It’s possible that this will connect to a business plan. Your chart suggests you may need to go back to the drawing board on something, and it’s likely that an older version of your schema is more suited to your situation.

Gemini (May 20-June 21) — The most important gift you can offer to yourself, and others, is to live your truth. There is a process involved here, made necessary because life on our planet is so complicated. What is living your truth? It means knowing what you value, which is to say, what is truly important to you, and making your decisions on that basis.

Living your truth is living in alignment with yourself. If you say something or someone matters, then you treat them as if they matter. One version of the split that leads to personal conflict is making decisions contrary to what one holds to be true. To align yourself may take a little effort, though you will find that it’s pretty easy once you get going.

In fact, you may wonder what you’ve been doing all along — and the chances are, it’s been acting on what other people have said is important (and their own interests). Part of acting on your own priorities is the potential that you will annoy people through your independence. These interrelationships make an interesting study in how things get to be the way they are. You know what matters to you. Have the courage to act on your own self-awareness.

Gemini (May 20-June 21) — You may find yourself addressing an important issue that you were sure was resolved. Mostly, it is. Whatever may be manifesting is some kind of last gasp, or a matter you may have overlooked. Algorithms don’t go away easily. So take your time and work this out. As you do so, you may discover some wider or deeper connections that you were wondering about.

You don’t have to act on any of this information beyond using it to make personal decisions, though you would be wise to keep it in mind. One thing that has changed is that your responsibilities are no longer strictly private (to the extent that was ever true). You are in a more visible role now, and people are counting on your wisdom.

As Pluto dips back into Capricorn for a few months, you will get to use well-earned lessons about the nature of how so-called reality is pushed on people generally, and on you specifically. Fortunately, you are much older and wiser than you were in 2008, when the journey that is now ending first began. Looking back, that seems like a world or two ago. You could fill several books with what you’ve been through since then, in some of the most challenging areas of living.

Yet if you have not made one particular discovery during this time, you’re in a great position to make it now. You have far more available to you than you think, in terms of both spiritual and material resources. Moreover, you are in a position to manage and allocate the flow of resources within your community — including putting the right people together with one another. You’ve not been accustomed to taking this kind of leadership role any time lately. But using your intelligence suits you well in whatever form you may get to do it.

Gemini (May 20-June 21) — There is only one approach to handling your deepest fears, which is a spiritual approach. It’s rare that fear is connected to something you can actually do something about, especially in the short-term.

If you’re afraid of your house burning down, you can check the stove and blow out all the candles, though that may not resolve your anxiety. It’s similar with courage; there is rarely something actually holding back those who summon their will and rise to some occasion — it’s almost always a mental or emotional trip that holds people back.

This month’s lunar eclipse in Scorpio may confront you with your anxieties, particularly material. Mercury retrograde in the same axis of your chart may have you feeling like you cannot influence the direction and flow of your thoughts — or even pin down what you’re thinking. Yet both present opportunities to work out something much deeper, including anxieties that have lingered around for many years. There is a possibility that you feel trapped within the seeming confines of your own mind. That is likely to be the first thing to resolve, with the sensation of something coming loose. At all times, you have the power to make one particular choice, which is whether to listen to the voice of fear or the voice of love.

This is not always easy to work out, because fear is so shrill and demanding of attention. It is relentless, and it’s almost always wrong. Fear needs to be discredited due to its terrible track record of not being at all helpful, though it’s also a habit. The only way to release an old habit is to replace it with a new one — and help is on the way.

Planet Waves Monthly Horoscope for April 2023 | Go To All Signs
By Eric Francis Coppolino

Gemini (May 20-June 21) — Mars has finally left your sign, after spending seven months there — Aug. 20, 2022 through March 25, 2023. This has not been easy; we might question whether it’s been meaningful, though we both know that it has. You have had to experiment with how to apply your will; how to connect your words to your actions; and most of all, how to work out your conflicts with yourself. On that particular matter, Mars has raised the stakes. How the twins get along is the most significant ongoing issue for Gemini. On many occasions Mars focused your inner controversy to the point where you had to admit that it exists. Mars in Cancer (along with Venus in Taurus) are both calling you to come from a unified place, emotionally. You are not two people; you are one person who is capable of holding multiple viewpoints at the same time. But that does not mean that they are all true, or that they all work for you. Mars in Cancer, however, cautions against dropping the deliberation process and being impetuous about your choices, or what you determine aligns with your values (or does not). That remains an open question. Values are not necessarily something that you can feel ‘from the gut’. You may feel anger as a gut reaction, but have a value that you will resolve issues without resorting to aggression. Be alert to the fact that you will be inclined to take action whereas in recent months (or even going back much longer) you may have not done so. It’s still essential that you determine what constitutes right action, and what comports with your most deeply held principles.

Planet Waves Monthly Horoscope for March 2023 | Go To All Signs
By Eric Francis Coppolino

Gemini (May 20-June 21) — You are likely to be feeling the massive changes coming in the world, and you may even recognize that these present you with opportunities. However, the planets warn that you must move slowly and continue to test the bounds of your reality, even as so much seems to be swirling and moving. Some things you know and observe are true; others are not.

You are at a critical stage where you must make decisions based on valid information. You might observe something that seems entirely real, only to discover that it was not. There are going to be times when it’s tempting to just go for it, and that is what I am suggesting you avoid. You have time; what happens in March is just the beginning, not the end, and not a fleeting thing. Your best approach would be to probe your environment all the time. Determine who and what is solid, through experience. Notice how your perceptions are changing, and what may have seemed real throughout your whole past is suddenly something else. Along these lines, what has seemed vague, foggy, intangible or difficult to grasp may come right into focus, all of a sudden, just like that. Yet this is one expression of a much deeper shift in the whole composition of your reality.

And it is in this new reality where you must gain your sea legs, which will take time and experience. In a comparable way to Taurus, you are being summoned to collective service. Yet your superpower is your ability to be social and conversant with anyone, in nearly any environment, under any conditions. That is a special gift, and it will surely come in handy.

Planet Waves Monthly Horoscope for February 2023 | Go To All Signs
By Eric Francis Coppolino

Gemini (May 20-June 21) — Mars is continuing to work its way back through your sign, where it was retrograde until a couple of weeks ago. This may seem like a replay, but really, you’re on a tour of the ways in which the territory of your life and the world have changed over the past six months. This will mostly be a matter of your own state of mind. Monitor your Mars-related emotions carefully: aggression, anger, and motivation principal among them. Imagine anger and aggression at one side of the continuum, and motivation at the other. Where do you stand? That may come back to what I keep describing as the issue of personal relevance. The less relevant you feel, the angrier you will tend to be; the more relevant, the more motivated you will feel. The same astrological energy — Mars — describes all of those qualities. The question of relevance is a profound one, since one of the effects of digital conditions is to make people feel not only worthless, but like they don’t exist. And when people feel like they don’t exist, they get violent, partly as a means of cultivating their self-awareness. However, this is not healthy; you are especially ill-suited for any form of combat or extreme competition. At times this means you can take out this energy on yourself, which will manifest as anger or resentment. And that may be connected to the feeling: Am I anyone? Does anyone care? What’s the point? Those questions, if you can ask them, are where your true journey begins.

Planet Waves Monthly Horoscope for January 2023 | Go To All Signs
By Eric Francis Coppolino

Gemini (May 20-June 21) — Jupiter’s move into Aries will open up your social possibilities, providing you with the opportunity to repopulate your circle of friends over the next five months. And with the Sun’s move into Capricorn, given the increasingly hostile state of the world, I suggest you collect the friendly people, get to know them and build a little organization. The theme is physical rather than digital presence. People you consider to be in affinity with you are always good to have around. However, if we forget our need to actually be with one another, we are gradually ceasing to be human. Neither our bodies nor our souls are compatible with the robots that are taking over our lives. I suggest you do as much actually human, non-robotic stuff with others as you can. This is natural for you, but so too is your easy affinity with technology. The human world is more complex, it requires a greater emotional risk, and you have to do more to connect with others. We are losing ground fast to a world (envisioned by certain engineers) of 100% digital relationships. In case you’re wondering about the feeling of the oxygen being sucked out of the atmosphere, that’s what it’s about. Gemini is a human sign, and the cosmic joke is that the first time one person shows up in the zodiac, there are two of them together — actually with one another, not emailing or on Zoom. Remember that.
